Energy & Healing

What Is Energy and How Can It Heal?

A look at how the level of vibrational energy in our body effects our physical and mental wellbeing and how increasing it is the key to improving health and preventing disease.

How Energy Works

If you look at Quantum Physics, the concept of Energy becomes quite complicated. Einstein proved that E=MC²  (Energy equals Mass times the speed of Light squared). This tells us that Mass and Energy are interchangeable and that both space and time are not absolute. The most important consequence of this is that Mass is nothing but a form of Energy. So, everything is a form of Energy, objects at rest have stored Energy and everything in nature vibrates at different frequencies. Trees, Rocks, Water and People are all made up of vibrating Energy, in one form or another. Energy can exist as either solid matter or as non-solid matter, such as a beam of light, radio waves, microwaves and X-rays are all forms of pure non-solid Energy. When we speak, our voice saying words has released sound waves of Energy causing ripples in the air around us. When we think, our brains release wavelengths of Energy.

What is Vibrational Frequency?

Vibrational frequency is the constant rate of electrical flow that is measurable between two points.  Bioelectricity is one of the fundamental forms of energy in the human body with electric currents flowing through our cells, nerves and muscles, governing metabolism, impulses within the central nervous system,  brain function, and to regulate muscle contraction.

The human energy field, the 'aura', is the manifestation of universal energy that extends beyond the length and breadth of the body. Scientists have verified that the human organism is not just a physical structure made of molecules, but also has a subtle energy system through which 'life force energy' flows.  Within the aura, the 'chakra' system (energy centres) transforms the energy and the meridian system, the conveyors and conduits of vital energy, transports this energy throughout the body.

An energy field that vibrates at a high level of frequency draws positive, healthy, happy experiences, whereas an energy that is low in vibration draws experiences that we consider negative or unhealthy. Hence, there is a direct correlation between raising your vibration and improving health and preventing disease.

There is agreement among science, medicine and metaphysics that certain energy frequencies can repel disease, and certain frequencies can destroy disease. This is the connection between raising your vibration (frequency) and improving your health.  When parts of the body become stressed or diseased, they are not vibrating at their prime (optimal) resonant frequency.

Negative Energy

Throughout our lives we pick up negative forms of Energy, such as fear, doubt, anger, judgment, criticism, blame and others. It is believed, that prolonged states of low vibrational frequency from negative energy, cause our cells to mutate and organs to degenerate, ultimately resulting in disease. As disease is a manifestation of unbalanced Energy, healing is a way of balancing Energy.

The two major factors that suppress our ability to raise our vibratory rates to optimal levels are stress and toxicity. Stresses in various forms (emotional, physical and environmental), and toxins from food consumption and the environment are contributing factors to poor health, unbalanced energy systems, suppression of the immune system and suppression of personal vibration levels. By applying a higher vibrational frequency to a lower vibration, the lower vibration will naturally try to resonate the higher frequencies – and it is in the process of resonation that energy flow is restored, stresses are released and health improves.

How to restore/create a higher vibrational frequency

Reiki  Healing:  Reiki,  accelerates the process of healing by increasing the level of vibrational frequency within the body through the energy transferred through the Reiki healer. Reiki invites stuck energy to move or vibrate again. It restores energy balance and vitality by stimulating the body to heal and starting a process of purification, it cures both the exterior bodily symptoms and the deeper root causes, and helps return the body to its natural perfect state. One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities, and improves and maintains health.  Health is the harmonious flow of life energy; a balanced energy system is the best defence against disease.

By raising the body’s vibrational frequency, Reiki can enable you to;

  • Feel passionate about life
  • Feel enthusiastic and energetic
  • Feel happier and healthier
  • Sleep better
  • Deal better with the daily stresses of life

Avoid Negative Situations/People: Try not to spend time listening or engaging in negative conversations or gossip, these are damaging and can drag your vibration to low levels quickly. When you spend time with negative people, you will often feel tired and drained, because negative people require and absorb energy from others.

Surround yourself with positivity:  Follow positive people. Like attracts like.  When you spend time with positive people you will feel uplifted or more energetic. People with a positive disposition create energy and their higher vibrations affects others in a positive way. It is said that ‘the 6 people you spend the most time with, you are most likely to emulate’- food for thought!

Purify your body: Eat fresh fruits and vegetables; the shorter the time from garden, vine or tree to table, the higher the ‘life force’ energy contained in the food. When our bodies receive high vibration energy from fresh natural foods, it assimilates this energy throughout our bodies, which raises our vibration. Toxins lower your energy and your vibration, so if you can, remove cigarettes, alcohol, refined foods, pesticides, and pollution from your life.

Practice compassion:  When you genuinely and compassionately help others you automatically raise your vibration. 

These are just a few ideas.  Listening to music, exercising, spending time outside enjoying nature, writing a personal journal of your thoughts and feelings, meditation, volunteering your time, all of these will increase your vibration.
In fact, anything you do that taps into your heart and brings you joy will raise your energy frequency too.
