When we think of healing we don’t normally associate it with energy, at least not in the West. The traditional idea of healing is all about adjusting the physical body, however we know that there is a field of energy all around us and within us that affects health.
Often when we have a physical health problem there is an underlining energetic blockage that is manifesting so that we can work through it. The physical and spiritual aspects are intimately connected.
I rarely get sick or ill, however when I do I notice that it is always related to my internal energy levels. There will be a week where I’m not as diligent with my spiritual practice and then suddenly fall ill.
I now see becoming sick as a good reminder to get back into energetic alignment, clean up my routine and get back into the flow of things. Getting sick helps me reflect on the things that have pulled me out of my disciple.
In this post I want to go over how to send healing energy to specific parts of your body (so they may heal faster) and how to send healing energy to other people. I believe anyone is capable of doing this with focus and consistent practice.
How to send healing energy (6 steps)
We all send each other healing energy all of the time, whether we are aware of it or not. When we have good intentions towards someone in need, that is a form of energy healing.
What makes the difference here is having the intention to send energy, whether this is part of our psychic work or personal lives. We might send healing energy through phrases such as ‘I wish them well’ or through praying for someone’s wellbeing.
Energy healing builds on the principle that we are all interconnected, that there are links between us beyond the physical. While someone might not be aware of our intentions, they can often feel them!
If someone you know is sick or going through a rough time it’s best to ask them before you send anything, as they might not want this form of help. We all get to decide what sort of energy we allow into our field.
Step 1: Quiet Your Mind
Find a quiet and comfortable spot where you can meditate for at least ten minutes undisturbed. Sit with your legs crossed, back straight and arms in your lap.
Spend a few minutes focusing on your breath and clearing your mind. Once you are in a light trance you can move onto the next step.
Step 2: Ground yourself
One of the most crucial aspects when it comes to sending energy is to make sure you are grounded in yourself first. This is so that you can send energy from a centered place. This is especially pertinent for those who send healing energy regularly as part of their psychic work.
In the seated position with your mind clear, visualize roots extending from your root chakra (base of the spine) and travelling deep into the Earth.
As you breathe in, visualize/feel energy flowing upward from the Earth filling the body. As you breathe out visualize this energy circulating back around and down the body back into the Earth. Repeat this process for about a minute.
This connection between the root chakra and the Earth acts as an energetic anchor, you can send energy without unbalancing yourself.
Step 3: Build Energy
Rub your hands together for a few seconds and then pull them slightly apart. You should already feel a residual sensation of energy between them. Focusing on this sensation, try to intensify and expand it. Imagine a ball of energy growing between your palms.
If you are having difficulty with building energy then practice working the hand chakras beforehand. These are one of the lesser-known sets of chakras that deal with creativity, expression and of course, healing.
Step 4: Set An Intention
With your focus on this ball of energy, it’s time to set an intention. If you are sending this energy to someone else adjust it to their needs, keeping your intentions as pure as possible. You are simply sending help and relief, not fixing or curing anyone.
Depending on the purpose of this healing energy you can shift the color of the energy ball.
- Red for security
- Orange for creativity
- Yellow for power
- Green for love
- Purple/indigo for spiritual guidance
Different colors have different vibrations/purposes to them, and so will influence the healing that is affected. The color meanings here correspond to the seven chakras, which you can use as a reference. Use a white/translucent ball of energy for neutrality.
Step 5: Send The Energy
Once the energy ball is sufficiently charged (when you can feel it strongly pulsing) visualize it being sent to the recipient. I like to keep an image of the person in my mind and imagine them being uplifted as they receive it.
Step 6: Return To Yourself
To finish always clear your space and then ground your energy. You can do this by burning some sage, playing calming music or visualizing yourself filling back up like a battery. Sending energy can be draining at times, so it’s important to keep yourself revitalized too.
When I did energy readings people knew that I will be tuning into their energy and assessing the paths they can take. I always send some healing energy and adjust it based on that person’s specific needs. I’ve had people who notice this energy is coming from me – people can feel this flow if they are aware.
You can also send energy to parts of your own body that require relief and healing. I like to visualize little beings of light going to work on whatever part of my body needs it.
Some pointers to keep in mind:
- Get consent before you send healing energy.
- Make sure your own energy levels are balanced beforehand.
- Only send energy with positive intentions.
- Negative energy will eventually come back round to you.
Many people find that others come to them for healing (whether consciously or not) because the energy they put out feels welcoming and safe. This might also be in the form of consistently asking for advice or company.
When we are doing any type of energy healing it’s important to keep boundaries in mind, both your own and others. Do you want to be a healing figure for others? Did someone ask for your blessing/thoughts/energy?
The last thing we want to do is become drained because we are healing others unintentionally without also filling ourselves. We don’t want to insert ourselves into other’s energetic space when they haven’t asked for it.
