Every person has a self-healing gift. We are each born with some means of self-healing ourselves energetically. Everyone.
Part of life’s journey is in discovering your gift.
Perhaps you are particularly skilled in visualizing, or singing, or running energy through your hands. Perhaps you feel or sense your body becoming well. Some of you have a profound relationship with the earth and respond very quickly to the herbs, plants and flowers of Mother Earth. I know people that heal very well by using crystals and stones, and that might be one of your talents.
I recently did sound healing for a woman whose entire energetic field became a collage of crystals and stones as I sang to her. That energetic medicine is strong for her. I have sung to others with profound connections to specific animals. Their bodies can literally draw strength through their spiritual connection to animals.
Most of us respond to one of the four elements and are deeply supported in our healing by spending more time with earth, water, wind or fire. In the case of someone connected to the wind, it is vital to spend time outdoors and many find healing assistance through breathing meditations. The same is true with the other elements. If you feel a deep relationship with one or more of them, they can help you center and heal.
The good news about energy medicine as a self-healing gift is that it is always with you. You can access it any time you choose for your self-healing. The key to getting the most out of doing energy healing for yourself, whatever form is most natural for you, is to allow that energy to flow through you with great love and compassion for your current physical and emotional condition.
Then, as a master Sound Healer taught me, it is important to develop your ability to hold the clarity of your wellness in loving consciousness for a minimum of 10 seconds. Your clarity might be in the form of a visualization, a perfect sound, a sincere feeling of wellness, or an intense movement of energy through your hands.
Ten seconds might sound like no time at all, but when you need to hold a pure state of consciousness, it can feel like an eternity in the beginning. So be patient with yourself. Every second of clarity (even a total time under 10 seconds) counts, and assists.
Energy healing is a discipline where you learn to be completely present to yourself in the discomfort and the comfort. You are perfecting your ability to be a pure healing presence, while maintaining complete love for yourself.
This is often what our bodies and psyches are craving—our own love and healing energy!
If you aren’t sure about your gifts, begin observing what you love to do and what your body does naturally. Do your hands get hot when you are not feeling well? Do you love to sing but haven’t really used it for healing yourself. Do you have a propensity for drawing but never thought about it in relationship to healing? Healing gifts are often as unique as the individual.
I love to do healing readings for people because I am usually able to confirm their healing gifts and abilities, as well as offer suggestions for accessing them more profoundly. Some people just have a difficult time recognizing them because they have lived with them for so long that they seem normal!
Consider exploring yourself. How do you see the world, relate to people, experience life? Investigate yourself as though you didn’t know yourself. Your best healing gift is typically something that comes quite naturally for you. Once you believe you have found your self-healing gift, explore it with enthusiasm. The more you explore it, the more your self-healing gift will teach you about how it works and how to apply it in your life.
