We are in as good health as we can imagine for ourself. There is an ancient Indian proverb which says -
Everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but, unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.
We often tend to focus on the physical aspect but never really talk about emotional, mental and spiritual health. Energy healing techniques like Reiki, Pranic Healing etc. focus on healing and harmonising the energy in the body and being.
We are beings made of energy. When this energy is not freely flowing, we experience problems in our life and/or health. When this flow is harmonised and balanced, we experience a state of holistic health.
An important aspect of energy healing is self healing. If you are not in good health, you cannot serve optimally. If you are initiated into any of the healing modalities, use it to clear your energies and energy centres.
However, if you are not initiated into any healing technique, you can still heal yourself using the Chakra Meditation mentioned below.
A note about energy centres:
Energy centres are called Chakras in Sanskrit. Their function in simple terms is that they are the places from where body breathes in the energy from the universe. They then circulate the energy into various parts and organs of the body. A healthy chakra means a healthy body. Most alternative healings involve healing and clearing the chakras.
