I often write here about energy healing as it’s very useful to understand the principles. This can help us process what is coming up in our experience and resolve it.
So often, we resist or try to control what’s happening, impeding a smooth experience. This can leave residues behind that will have to be resolved in the future.
Yet when we learn the basics, we can process what’s arising now and from the past. This shifts the trend from adding to the pile to resolving our history. This leads to a progressively better quality of life and supports the spiritual path. We can’t go far if we’re immersed in a fog of unresolved experiences.
Initially, the key is that simple awareness. Allowing what is arising to be experienced in simple awareness. No judgment or trying to control.
As we gain more skill, we can introduce “flavours” to the energy.
But first, we need a basic understanding of the elements. There are 5 basic elements or degrees of density in what we experience. The elements have a relationship with the senses, the state of compounds, and with the koshas.

When we feel into a contraction, the dominant energy will be an emotion. Yet we may notice other qualities and that may invite a certain approach. For example, we may feel inclined to flow light into a shadow. Then we may add a colour to the light that feels right.
Or perhaps we’re more attuned to sound, so we’ll add tones or vibrations. David Frawley’s book Mantra Yoga and Primal Sound describes using mantra for different areas of the body. However, I recommend going with the flow and using what feels right. The mantra for that body part, for example, may not be the optimal sound for a specific healing.
Rather than fixed rules or concepts, the key is going with the feeling, the flow, and need of the time. What works magically one time may not be the right solution later.
We also have to allow for time itself. When the time is right, the signal will happen and the process will flow. When it’s not quite the right time, there won’t be clarity.
As always, healing is about feeling our way into where there is resistance. Or seeing through a story that comes up in the mind.
