I often get questions about energy healing as I regularly mention its importance. My process is largely self-learned and informal, adapting to what is arising. I’ve not developed a specific formula.
Essentially, I notice a sensation or emotion arising in day-to-day life that has a flavour of resistance, allow it to be expressed and it resolves. With a little practice, this becomes mostly automatic. We shift from repressing to releasing. I don’t go looking for contraction, I just notice them when life events bring them up.
If you have not yet woken, you may also notice a flavour of grasping or trying to control. That falls away post-awakening leaving just old resistance to surface.
Either flavour requires we be willing to experience what arises. You notice reactivity? What is behind that? What is the feeling driving it? How do you feel right now? Can you identify those feelings? If not, it means there’s some repression. If you’re unwilling to go there, you won’t be able to identify the emotion that’s arising and to discriminate it from other internal noise. And thus the emotion can’t be experienced and resolved. Sometimes, it’s just recognizing a sensation and allowing the attention to go there. We may even find pain but as the charge eases off, you’ll find anger, fear, shame, and other heavier emotions rumbling beneath it.
This isn’t about going into the emotions. It’s simply allowing them to be there and witnessing them. Stop resisting their experience. Then they can arise in awareness and be “digested” or resolved. Some may wash over us in a wave but then they’re done. They are seen and completed.
The bigger suppressions will have layers, including something of an emotional shadow that’s been keeping them hidden. A theme may repeat as the layers peel or you’ll notice it doesn’t feel completed. This can unfold over time. At some point, the core comes to the surface with a stronger charge and then it can be completed. You may find some dust has been kicked up, and some rest is needed afterwards to complete the processing.
For example, you may find a contraction with several layers of shame hiding a core betrayal. Or you may find layers of anger and frustration around a core fear.
These big ones are our major life lessons. Resolving them energetically means we don’t have to live those out in life events anymore. It’s a much faster and easier process even if you find it challenging.
My exploration lead into perceiving these “storage places” of repression, initially following the threads of past lives. Dorothy Rowe has pointed out some ancestral stuff I’d not noticed and have been clearing recently.
This may sound unfamiliar and complex but it’s really simple. It’s about allowing whatever arises in experience to be experienced. Whatever is arising now and whatever that triggers from our past. All emotion is OK, a natural expression of our being. If we resist, it will reduce clarity and create reactivity. Noticing while it is arising allows us to resolve it energetically, avoiding it playing out in life events. When we become an open vessel, what is unresolved will come forward to complete.
Healing is not complex, but it takes some time and patience to shift our habits of resistance and resolve the backlog in a healthy and balanced way. We don’t want to take down the house in the process of cleaning it.
Dorothy Rowe offers a more formalized process that is simple but is also more sophisticated. Notice offering it to silence. You gain both the power of wholeness to support the process and solutions for more complex issues.
Her Healing Algorithm in short:
1 – feel the symptom
2 – find its seed
3 – offer it to silence
4 – from silence, the answer returns
5 – what is given from silence is offered back
And in a little more detail:
1 – feel the sensation or emotion
2 – look behind or beyond the symptom for the source
3 – offer it to silence (being, awareness, presence)
4 – from silence, the answer or antidote returns, quickly or soon. This can be a knowingness, pictures, intuition, or other forms. You may get more information about it or recognize a deeper seed further in.
5 – whatever arises is offered back to silence. This amplifies it, helps purify, and deepens further.
It becomes more defined & precise. Offer that back too until it expands to infinity.
As we become more experienced at it, we get faster. The process also makes us better at letting go and makes our connection to source a more active, interactive relationship.
This process does require a sense of being, of inner silence. You can’t fall back into silence if you have no experiential reference point for it. Developing this comes from samadhi (transcendence) for which I recommend effortless meditation.
However, we don’t have to be perfect here. If we’re less clear, we’ll get foggier signals and may not clear as deeply. But it’s still a very helpful process for clearing emotions, stories, and so forth. The healing develops more clarity which increases our skill.
Dorothy goes into the process in more detail in this video and demonstrates:
Healing in all aspects of being allows us to live a fuller, richer life. It takes time and patience to move beyond the behemoth of our past but the rewards are worth it.
Update: Dorothy published a March webinar that explores the Healing Algorithm along with related healings on YouTube.
