Came upon the blog post above from a twitter link, it may have some good information for a beginner on the path who thinks energy is stuck to them, but if you are a healer and you need these techniques then you have no business doing healing. Doing a healing should NEVER wear you out it should always energize you. If you are getting tired you are doing something wrong! In fact doing many healing sessions in a row you get you quite buzzed. There are many times my brother and I have worked 12 – 15 hours straight with session after session hardly stopping to pee or shove a piece of food in our mouths. While we may have experienced the sore feet that anyone on their feet that many hours may experience there was never any exhaustion and in fact we left energized and ready to get some chow.
Some of the suggestions at that blog post would indicate immediately to me that I should not allow that healer to touch me. The suggestion to not have eye contact for example. If you can’t make eye contact with a client because of self protection issues then you need to stop doing healing work. As a healer it is your responsibility to know how to protect yourself in any circumstance without disengaging in a fearful manor from a client. You must always be the one in control of the energy. In that state you should always be able to meet the eyes of anyone who you come into contact with. Also what kind of healer does such a crappy job of healing and protecting themselves that they are afraid to hug the client after the session?
Cutting cords should be automatic after all many healing sessions revolve around removing cords from the client so the idea that you would somehow get your own grids caught up with the client and not cleared and detached draining your energy is absurd if you are actually qualified to do the work. There is no place for a fear based belief system for your own safety when doing spiritual healing. Yes there are risks and it is your job to know them and know how to handle them BEFORE you put yourself out there as a healer. At any given time you may come upon someone with entity attachments of very dark spirits. You cannot be afraid as they will then be in control of the energy in the room, you need to know exactly what to do and simply do it.
The energy of the space should be clear before anyone enters and you should be in full command of all energies in the room. Healing work is commanding energies in a multitude of ways. If negative energies are in any way sticking to you then you are not and have not been in command of the energy. The light and dark colors things is silly! White does not attract negative or any other energies and dark does not repel them. It does not matter what color you wear in those terms but if you work well personally with the vibration of a particular color then wearing it can strengthen your work with that color.
Some of this info is similar in thought to old ideas like putting a red stone on a red chakra it is just silly to think that a stone goes with a red chakra because it is red. Stones should be used based primarily on their properties for one and in addition red does not necessarily balance red. It may take green or blue etc. to balance the red chakra when working with color therapy depending on how and why it is out of balance to begin with. You may not need a color at all.
I have never had an issue with hugging a client. The sessions often leave clients feeling an intimate connection in the moment and they feel the need to express appreciation and love why would anyone not receive this outpouring of their soul? I’ve also never felt the need to wash my hands afterward even going from client to client. When you are done with a client the space should be very pure from the work done. I may smudge the space in between but that is not because there are any negative energies there, it is really about clearing the focus of myself and everyone in the room so attention is fully turned to the new person. There should not be any negative energies in the room when I am done or I have not done my job.
I do often clear tools as is suggested such as crystals. Not after every client though only when I feel a stone needs to be cleared. A stone may hold an energy that needs to be released at any given point but even when this is the case it is rarely because it is a negative energy as in a harmful energy. Stones used for healing should just not be allowed to hold any particular pattern. The energy you are running should be strong enough that they are left clear. Occasionally multiple people have a similar pattern that can get stuck in the stone and needs to be cleared so the stone’s energy is free of patterns. If that happens though it is not going to transfer itself to you. You can set the stone aside and clear it even the next day with no issues.
I just can’t say it enough if you are having issues with negative energies as a healer, STOP! That is an indication you are not yet qualified to be doing the work you are doing. That is certainly not to indicate that dark and negative energies are not an issue, they are! I am not a Pollyanna about dark forces in fact I have spent my life removing them from people and places. If you don’t know what you are doing you can get yourself into big trouble which is why taking a class or getting a Reiki activation is pretty meaningless even from a good teacher at times. A Reiki Master for example may not have any information about dealing with dark entities, they don’t know how to work body grids. They only work with the Reiki symbols and trust the symbols and system to command the energies, a very dangerous practice. Many Reiki healers also know other types of healing though and use the term Reiki because it is widely recognized. Many good healers learned through apprenticeship so that as they come upon situations they did not yet know how to handle their teacher is there to command the energies. Some of us learned directly from spirit and that has it’s own issues depending on the level of vibration of your healing guidance.
In the late 90’s in Montana there was a healer working in the Flathead Valley who was quite good at what she did while with clients. She started teaching classes and had groups of her students get together without her to practice on one another. One night they were working on a 12 year old when a dark entity entered the space and attached to the boy. They called their teacher and she had no idea what to do. Her guides apparently always kept dark entities out of her space and she had never encountered an attachment in her work. She was not there holding the energy for her students while they practiced and she had not taught them how to do this for themselves because she had never had to do it herself. Luckily one woman there knew I would know what to do and called me. We got the boy cleared and everything was ok. The boy’s father though was so frightened by the experience the he forbid his son to do any further spiritual energy related things!!!
Obviously the healing guidance of the teacher in this case (who learned directly from spirit) taught her what she needed to know to work with them but did not give her all the information she would need to be a teacher of healing VS. a healer. She was not aware there were elements her guidance was simply taking care of for her in her work as a healer. Later she was tasked with taking on a not for profit that was located on land where a vortex had become out of balance and that was causing problems with the earth there. As a healer she thought she would easily fix the problem and found out she did not know how to do that either and ended up having the corporation sell the sacred vortex piece of property to a private owner instead of seeking out someone who did know how to right the energy she had been entrusted to balance. Now that land is still out of balance and owned by someone who will not get it balanced. For years healer after healer came to that land and accomplished nothing. I had told the first director of the corporation exactly what was needed to balance the vortex energies, no one was willing to listen to the earth or do what the earth needed there because it would have required them to set aside their greed.
There are a lot of healers out there who are equally greedy and NOT qualified to work on anyone. They will charge you large sums of money though and be worried about your energy getting stuck on them because they have no idea what they are doing but are more than willing to take your money. Certifications in healing mean NOTHING! A piece of paper does not mean someone knows how to command the energy and protect you and themselves. If they cannot protect themselves they cannot protect you and if you are on their table it is their sacred responsibility to protect you while you are there. They should also be sending you off with some extra protection for 24 hours or so while you are processing the work that has been done and are in a vulnerable state.
Everyone who has some sort of spiritual awakening wants to be a healer they think it is cool or something. These people can be dangerous to your well being and bring you more issues then you went into the session with even though they may be nice people with good intentions.
