The energy in this field is not lifeless or inert—it is active and intelligent. It is conscious
energy, a manifestation of the universal consciousness that is the source of each of us and the
entire universe. The energy is one of the important expressions of the realm of pure
consciousness, the spiritual source of life, in the manifested physical world. The energy field acts
as a bridge, a connection, between the realm of pure spirit and the manifested world. It is both an
indicator and a regulator of the manner in which the life force and higher potentials that exist
within this higher realm are expressed in worldly life.
If this energy field is clear, healthy and free from defects, the living person will likewise
exhibit good health, in all its physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. Innate health and
harmony in body and mind, spiritual awareness and higher human potentials will all manifest in
the person and in their life. Many times, however, dysfunctional energetic patterns are present in
the energy field. When the flow of energy within this energy field becomes weak, impure,
unbalanced or blocked, the energetic defects prevent the pure connection to the higher spiritual
reality—the realm of pure consciousness and the true self of the person. This prevents the full
and healthy expression of the living potential of the whole person and removes the natural
condition of energetic health that is a requirement for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual
The ultimate cause is usually traumatic experiences in the past (often including past lives)
which have fragmented the psyche, allowed invasion of impure energies, and established faulty
energy patterns into the functioning of the energy field. These three effects—personality
fragmentation, invasion by unhealthy psychic energies and fundamental energetic defects in the
aura and chakra system—usually occur together. The dysfunctional patterns in body, mind and
spirit will eventually lead to problems in the worldly life. They will inhibit, in various ways
particular to each person, the healthful and balanced functioning of body, mind and spirit which
would otherwise be possible. Diseases or afflictions of a physical, emotional or mental nature
often eventually become manifest.
Energy field healing is the art of correcting energetic defects in the energy field. In energy
field healing, the healer seeks to restore the flow of the energy to its strong, natural and healthy
state and correct any defects that are present, thereby helping to restore and maintain health to
the body, emotions, mind and spirit—to all levels of the being. The healer, in doing this, treats
the ultimate cause of disease. By treating ill conditions in the energy field, the healer may work
to assist in the resolution of a disease condition which has already manifested in the physical
body, or in the mental and emotional life of the patient. The activities of the healer may also serve to prevent future disease, by treating faulty energetic conditions in the patient’s energy field which might otherwise result in illness in the future, should they remain untreated.
Additionally, the activities of the healer are beneficial simply because they enhance the entire life process of the patient, even if disease is not present, enhancing functioning of body, mind and spirit and enabling the patient to live a healthier, more balanced and fulfilling life.
As an energy field healing treatment is performed, the healer conducts an extra measure of
the universal life energy into the patient. This serves to supplement and enhance the overall
health of the energy field. The healer also expands his or her awareness for the purpose of
gaining information regarding the condition of the energy field of the patient—to detect energetic anomalies of various kinds. The healer then treats these faulty conditions by using various special techniques, to work with the field in various ways to correct the undesirable conditions that maybe present.
A skilled healer is therefore capable of supplementing and enhancing the health of the
vital energetic life processes of the patient, upon which physical, emotional and mental health
depend. Instrumental in the healer’s art is the acquisition of expanded awareness, for it is the
healer’s expanded awareness that makes it possible for the healer to become fully aware of the
condition of the energy field, and to acquire and use the various abilities and techniques that are
useful in healing. To do this, the healer heals not from any specific state of mind, but from a
wider realm of awareness—from the whole being. As afflictions of body, mind and spirit begin in the wider realm of consciousness—the whole being—so does the healer heal from that level.
"As a therapist and Reiki Master, I practice a non-contact form of energy healing that is consistent with the ethical standards of the therapeutic community, and often leads to profound results where traditional talk therapies have had limited success. While research in the field of medicine is beginning to recognize the importance of the energetic body when treating all dis-ease states, these techniques are still considered alternative therapies and are not to be construed as a substitute for a full medical workup.
