Apologies that my blog is a little late this week. It was a very busy week with appointments and also preparing for a bespoke 1:1 workshop yesterday on Energy Healing for animals. It was perfect timing to be offering this as today marks the start of Healing Awareness Week!
Energy Healing is a topic that is very close to my heart as it has been a huge part of my journey, particularly over the last 10 years or so.
I had reached a stage in my life where I was feeling miserable, lost and alone. At first, I didn’t even realise this because I had cut myself off from my feelings as a kind of coping strategy. I suppose this worked for a while, but I soon realised that if things didn’t change, I was going to make myself ill.
I started reading and looking around for ways to make things better. Initially I was looking for external ‘fixes’, but I quickly discovered that these weren’t really addressing the deep need within me. I continued exploring, as if following a trail of breadcrumbs, just going from one step to the next, seeing where it would lead me.
The first course I found was Reiki Level I. Suddenly I felt that I had found a path that resonated for me! It gave me a renewed sense of hope and direction and also of purpose – that I could develop the tools I needed for myself, but also that I might be able to offer this to others too.
I went on to complete Level II, and from there to studying with the Healing Trust. This training covered a wide range of wellbeing related topics, including anatomy and physiology, the energy of colour and techniques for releasing old hurts and traumas. I completed my case studies and sat the exam and after 2 years of learning and practice I became a qualified Healer Member of the Trust.
Alongside this I was working on my personal development and exploring how I would like to use these newly developed skills. My journey was reconnecting me with my love of Nature and animals and so I went on to study healing of animals – initially small animals and later a specialism in equine healing – with Liz Whiter of the Healing Animals Organisation.
This has been a wonder-full journey full of deep challenges, incredible experiences and amazing people and animals. I have learnt so much and met such inspiring individuals!
I have gone on to add further tools to my kit, but working with Energy still underpins all that I do.
I would define healing as:
“regaining balance of mind, body and / or emotions. It complements conventional medicine by treating the whole being.”
- A completely natural form of therapy
- Deeply relaxing
- Complementary to conventional treatment
It stimulates the body’s own healing processes by supporting:
- the immune system
- cell repair
- enzyme function
- oxygen uptake
- absorption of nutrients
- wound repair
- pain relief
- release of endorphins
- a sense of wellbeing and calm
Have you ever had a session of Energy Healing? If not, I can recommend it as a great way to relax and recharge, and to enable your body to enter its ‘Rest and Repair’ mode.
