Energy Quotes
Energy is all there is. You are a latticework of energies.
Donna Eden
 
The next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine.
-Mehmet Oz, M.D.
 
The medicine of the future will be energy medicine, and chemical medicine will be a subset of medicine as a whole. Probably 80% of medicine will be energy medicine, and 20% chemical medicine. -Robert Jacobs, N.M.D.
 
You are the alchemist. Energy goes where intent flows.
-Unknown
 
Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.
Albert Einstein
 
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
―Nikola Tesla
 
Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.
-Sarah Bernhardt
 
The energy of the mind is the essence of life.
Aristotle
 
Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. Its eternal goal is life.
Smiley Blanton
 
Love the moment and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.
-Corita Kent
 
Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.
Oprah Winfrey
The Energy Issue
This is the first of a series of newsletters relating to concepts of Energy and Energy Medicine. As science begins to "catch up" to metaphysical theories, we are increasingly convinced that what we do not "see" or we cannot "prove" may be more real and more powerful that what we can. My favorite quote from Shirley Maclaine is "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence."
 
Concepts of energy medicine have been known by shamanic practitioners and other medicine peoples for thousands of centuries. They are now beginning to surface in Western consciousness.
 
This newsletter designed to give you some basic concepts about what energy medicine is and how it affects you mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Shamanic Energy Medicine
ENERGY PRINCIPLES
 
The primary Laws of the Universe are based on the premise that:
  1. Everything is Energy.
  2. Like attracts Like.
Therefore, one can conclude that:
  1. We attract what we are energetically.
  2. Who we are energetically is based on our beliefs.
  3. Our beliefs are sent out to the Universe by how we think, how we feel, and how we act.
As above, so below. As within, so without. As the Native Americans, say “Mitakuye Oasin”. All my relations. We are all connected. The world is a huge mirror that reflects back to us every thing we put out, everything that we are. What we see in others, exists within us.
 
Energy is neutral. Energy is not good or bad. However, energy can be classified into 2 types: energy which serves and energy which doesn’t serve. Energy which does not serve is exported to Mother Earth. She transforms it into energy that serves. Energy that serves can be imported from both earth and cosmic sources.
 
Energy does spin or vibrate at different rates. Therefore, each of our bodies spin at a specific rate based on how we think, feel, and act.
 
The following Energy Scale shows what slows or lowers energetic vibrations and what raises or speeds up energetic vibrations. The higher our rate of vibration, the easier it is to manifest the beautiful things we want in our lives.
 
Where do you think you are on this scale? Our energetic levels are dynamic and will change constantly depending on what thoughts and emotions we are running at the moment. However, an individual will most likely hover in the same general area on the scale.
 
 

 
Would you like to increase your vibration? Love is the most powerful influence to raise the vibration level of our energy. But it is also necessary to clear the energy systems of the body and remove spiritual blocks preventing living in a state of well-being.
 
DESCRIPTION OF THE ENERGY BODY
 
The physical body is zone part of our larger being, the luminous body. A human’s physical body consists of energy so dense we can feel and see it. However, the body also consists of less dense energy layers that are not seen within the normal range of the electromagnetic spectrum. Tibetan Buddhists call this energy body Jalü or Jalus, which means rainbow body. Amazon shamans believe that when each chakra vibrates at its natural healthy frequency, the energy body radiates the 7 colors of the rainbow.
 
The yoga teachings of Patanjali describe the energetic layers of the body as:
 
 

 
  • Vital Field / Etheric Body Resident here are physical trauma imprints: wounds, injuries, mutilations, dis-ease not healed previous lifetimes, as well as chi and prana energy. This is the last layer to lift off in the death process.
  • Emotional Field / Astral Body Resident here are emotional imprints: feelings and emotional traumas from past lives, as well as the aura. This is the second layer to lift off in the death process.
  • Mental Field / Mental Body Resident here are soul imprints: obsessive, repetitive, negative, and limiting thoughts. This is the first layer to lift off in the death process.
  • Spiritual Field / Causal Body Resident here are spiritual imprints: the karmic ties and remnants of psychic and spiritual connections to the spirits we were strongly involved with in past lifetimes. This layer is a part of the collective unconscious and lies is beyond individual consciousness. This layer does not lift off in the death process. It is immortal.
Alberto Villoldo, author of Shaman, Healer, Sage and founder of the Four Winds, also describes the layers of the energy body, which he calls the Luminous Energy Field (LEF). The LEF dwells outside of time having existed since before the beginning of time and enduring throughout infinity. It manifests in time by creating new physical bodies lifetime after lifetime.
 
The LEF contains a template of how we live, age, heal, and die because it contains imprints of all of personal and ancestral memories, as well as traumas and wounds from former lifetimes. These imprints predispose us toward certain behaviors and attract specific energies to us. When activated, imprints mimic the initial wounding and recreate the dramas. However, this is what gives us the opportunity to heal old soul wounds. A trained shamanic practitioner can assist in draining the toxic emotional energy around an imprint and then erasing the imprint altogether. This shift in energy can heal not only the self but past and future generations, too.
 
WHAT IS ENERGY MEDICINE?
 
Energy medicine is the use of energy to activate the body’s natural healing energies to restore weak, disturbed, blocked, or out of balance energies. An energy medicine practitioner acts as a conduit for healing energy on the body’s energetic systems. Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine, has identified 9 energetic systems associated with the body. To simplify, I have categorized the energy systems into the following 4 categories:
  1. Energy NetworksMeridiansare the body’s energy bloodstream consisting of 14 channels that carry energy into, through, and out of the body. Acupuncture points along these meridians can be stimulated with needles or pressure to redistribute energy along the meridian pathway. The Celtic weave (the Ida and Pingala) is a spiraling figure-8 network that runs throughout and around the body to keep all the energy systems functioning as a single unit. The Electrics help charge and connect the other systems at an electrical level.
  2. Energy Centers The chakrasare concentrated centers or vortexes of energy that act like transformers to step down the higher energy of the aura into the lower energy of the meridian system. There are 12 major chakras and over 100 minor chakras.
  3. Energy Fields – The aurais a multi-layered (usually 7) shell of energy that brings in energy from the environment to your chakras and sends energy from your chakras outward. It is a protective shell. The basic grid is the body’s foundational energy that all other energy systems ride on. The radiant circuits are fluid fields that ensure that all other energy systems are working for the common good and redistribute energies to where they are most needed.
  4. Energetic Rhythms - Known in Chinese medicine as the 5 elements (water, wood, fire, earth, and metal), a person's primary rhythm, in combination with the changing rhythms of life's seasons, directs the ambience of the entire energy system.
Every organ, tissue, gland, and cell in the body depend on a regular and supply of this energy in order to sustain life.
The body’s energy flow can become restricted or blocked by physical trauma, emotional trauma, surgery, disease, stress, or fear. Over time these energy blocks create dis-ease, emotional and mental disorder, and/or spiritual disconnection.
 
Energy medicine can restore and maintain the body’s energy systems by means of tapping, massaging, pinching, twisting, or connecting specific energy points on the skin; by tracing or swirling the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways; through exercises or postures designed for specific energetic effects; by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies.
 
Symptoms that there may be dis-function in the energy systems can range from being very subtle to being overwhelming. They include:
  • Fatigue, weakness, or lack of vitality
  • Chronic physical pains or illnesses
  • Depression, anxiety, restlessness, emptiness, or panic
  • Unresolved fears, nightmares, or interruptions to sleep
  • Sudden changes in behavior or feelings you are not your usual self
  • Feelings of being off balance, unfocused, ungrounded, or judgmental
  • Feeling of being disconnected from Others, Spirit, and/or Nature
  • Survivor of a trauma
Symptoms that there may be dis-function in the spiritual realm include:
  • Lack of integrity, honesty, compassion, understanding, courage, or strength
  • Lack of self-respect and self-esteem
  • Lack of spiritual activities
  • Lack of respect or tolerance for other human beings
  • A sense of not belonging anywhere or a lack of sense of community
  • Cruel and violent behavior towards other human beings
  • Disregard for the needs of Mother Earth and the universe
  • Physical, emotional and sexual abuse
  • Not knowing your purpose for being
  • The worship of material objects
SHAMANIC & ENERGY HEALING
 
The shortcoming of Western medicine is that the energy body is ignored whereas in Eastern medicine it is very integrated. For example, Chinese medicine is based on the theories of chi (energy) and Aruveyda is based on theories of prana (energy). So if a Westerner wants to heal on an energetic level, s/he must seek out a specialist. A specialist who is trained to work with the energy body is called a shamanic and/or energy medicine practitioner.
 
A shamanic practitioner facilitates healing of the soul or spirit. S/he specialized in working on crystallized and fluid energy, spirit possession, and missing soul parts (dis-functions 1 – 4 illustrated below).
 
An energy medicine practitioner facilitates healing of the energy body. S/he specialized in working on ungrounded energy, damaged energy centers, pathways, and fields (dis-functions 5 – 9 shown below).
 
A shamanic energy medicine practitioner facilitates healing for both modalities.
 
A good example of using both modalities on treatment is the case of extracting foreign energies. The space left by the removed energy must be filled up with positive, healthy energy through guided mediation and/or Reiki energy. In addition, the energy systems must be repaired to bolster the client’s resistance. If the aura is healthy, the positive energy will be held more efficiently and outside entities cannot easily return.
 
There is a natural overlap between shamanic practice and energy medicine practice. These two modalities can be combined to create powerful treatments that address a wide range of spiritual and energetic circumstances.
 
Below are listed the spiritual and energetic dis-functions that a client would go to a shamanic energy medicine practitioner about:
 
Spiritual Dis-function: 1 Crystallized Energy - Some toxic energies crystallize in the energy body. Crystallized energies are metaphoric entities used by a sorceress and angry people wishing ill will in form of psychic attacks or curses. They can be in the form of blow gun darts, spiders, insects, snakes, etc. Or a crystallized energy can be remnants of past life memories of how our injuries, wounds, and deaths.
 
Solution: Extraction of crystallized energies, inject positive energy, and repair aura.
 
Spiritual Dis-function: 2 Fluid Energy & Spirit Entities – Fluid energies can be aliens, astral entities (human-like, animals, bugs, astral parasites, or thought forms), dark force entities (dark angels or demons), devas, fairies, elementals, soul fragments, or undines. Spirit entities are deceased humans who are trapped in the “middle world” and have not “gone to the light”.
 
Solution: Extraction of fluid energies and spirit entities, inject positive energy, and repair aura.
 
Spiritual Dis-function: 3 Missing Soul Parts - During a trauma, soul pieces have been separated and placed in a “safe” place (called the Lower World, a place of non-ordinary reality). Also, some individuals have “stolen” or “borrowed” soul pieces from you.
 
Solution: Recover soul pieces via soul retrieval.
 
Spiritual Dis-function: 4 Foreign Soul Fragments – Just as someone else can hold on to a piece of our soul, so you can be holding on to soul fragments of another entity’s soul. Most often these parts belong close lover, friend, or family member that has moved on. In order to clear and purify your own energy body, it is important to release or return that energy to the original owner(s).
 
Solution: Extraction of foreign soul fragments, inject positive energy, and repair aura.
 
Energetic Dis-function: 5 Ungrounded Energy Body Grounding cord between our energetic body and Mother Earth is broken or damaged.
 
Solution: Repair or create grounding cord.
 
Energetic Dis-function: 6 Damaged or Blocked Energy Centers The energy centers of the body may be blocked, damaged, weak, too small, irregularly shaped, or spinning counter-clockwise.
 
Solution: Repair chakras.
 
Energetic Dis-function: 7 Damaged or Blocked Energy Pathways The energy meridians and grids may be blocked, damaged, or weak.
 
Solution: Repair meridians and grids.
 
Energetic Dis-function: 8 Energetic Cords between Energy Bodies Energetic cords exist between energy bodies.
 
Solution: Cut all cords that do not serve you. (Excludes cords to a person’s own children.)
 
Energetic Dis-function: 9 Damaged or Weak Energy FieldsAura deviations can include blobs, bulges, bright spots, cold spots, hot spots, color splotches, dark spots, dense energy, dense energy, hazy areas, elongations, holes, pulsations, and flimsy, jagged, or wavy edges.
 
Solution: Repair aura.
