Shamanism and Energy TherapyAll Energy Healing is based on the principle that the human energy field extends beyond the skin. A practitioner uses the hands to pick up on subtle changes to locate problems that correspond to symptoms in the physical body. Energy is a theme that permeates many area’s of complimentary health care. Shamanism has been around for over 40,000 years. Ancient cultures such as China and India have developed similar systems.
Through Quantum Physics it is acknowledged that everything in creation is made up of an electromagnetic energy field that vibrates at different frequencies. Inside every human being there is a network of nerves and sensory organs that interpenetrate the outside physical world. At the same time, within us resides a subtle system of channels and centers of energy (Chakras) that look after our physical , intellectual, emotional and spiritual being.
The subtle body is an energy field which has a structure and gives life to the physical body. The body has several interconnected layers including the etheric body, the template of and interface with the physical body where sensation is perceived: the astral/emotional body, which relates to the individual’s emotional states; the mental body, which contains the thinking patterns: and the causal body, the soul or higher intuition. The densest of the layers is the actual physical body. The Aura is an energy field which emanates from the surface of a person or object. Everyone and everything has an aura. The field around our physical body forms our aura and it is visualized as an outline of cascading color. Every thought, feeling and experience we have effects the vibration of this energy field.
The Aura also has 7 distinct layers of energy that are intimately connected to what is known as the Chakra system which is located along the spine. The difference between the auric layer and an auric body is a body of consciousness and awareness, while the Auric Layer is the representation of the Chakra interacting in the aura. One of the main functions of the aura is to draw in white light, breaking it down to its component color energies to send to the appropriate body energy centers. These are called Chakras.
The Chakras exist on the Etheric plane and resemble whirling wheels of energy. These energy centers correspond to the endocrine glands in the physical body and are associated with interactions of a physical , emotional and mental nature. The function of the Chakra is to spin and draw in the Universal Life Force Energy to keep the spiritual , mental, emotional and physical health of the body in balance. In Shamanism this energy field is known as the “Luminous Energy Field” (LEF) and is said to contain the energetic “blueprint” of the physical body. Very similar to an architectural blueprint of a building or a home. The LEF contains energetic information about all early life trauma, personal and ancestral memories and possibly even of painful wounds from former lifetimes.
Both positive and negative experiences continually influence our energetic field . Positive experiences, spiritual practices and the peace , tranquility and joy that accompany them are fuel for the innermost layer of the LEF. Negative experiences, trauma, unresolved psychological and emotional trauma will become engraved similar to scratch marks on the skin .When they form the negative emotions that naturally occur with trauma do not heal. These marks or imprints become embedded in the LEF and contain a “charge” that becomes permanent. All the information associated with the negative experience contains energy and information connected to the original wounding.
These imprints can be triggered spilling out the toxic energy contained within and effects the central nervous system therefore compromising the immune responses. Circumstances of the original trauma can recur over and over again unless the imprint is cleared . Every imprint is linked to a Chakra and is cleared through the “ Illumination Process” .or “Extraction of Crystallized Energy”. When these heavy toxic energies are cleared healing begins at the source , the Chakra’s are balanced enabling them to become clear and open conduits for receiving , assimilating and circulating energy throughout the body resulting in improved health , vitality, clarity and wellbeing.
