“Let me tune in to your energy before I can say anything.”
“Can you tell me how you are feeling?”
“Let’s just go with the flow and see what shows up for you.”
“Let’s not go against the flow for now. Difficult as it may be, let everything be as it is. Let’s revisit this problem after some time.”
“Whatever is for your highest good is what you can expect from this session.”
“Can we let go and surrender completely to the energy? Let’s allow it to do its work.”
“Breathe energy into every cell in your body.”
“Something doesn’t feel right. The energy feels off. Let’s go deeper and see what comes up.”
“Looks like you’ve absorbed some negative energy. Can you work on clearing it?”
“You’re all high vibe today!”
Most healers are familiar with this kind of ‘Energy Talk.’ After a point in time, it begins to feel natural to talk like this!
I have been offering Reiki sessions for the last 14 years and have worked with a variety of clients. The most memorable sessions amongst these have been the ones I’ve done for other experienced energy healers and also for people who may not be trained energy healers but have had a fair amount of exposure to energy-based healing therapies.
The reasons being-
- It is an absolute joy to converse freely with them in ‘Energy Language’ and not have them look at you like – “Have you gone nuts?!”
- It is also easier to give them feedback because they know and understand the subtleties of energy work and are well aware of its potential as well as limitations. They don’t expect miracles and magic from the healer, and are ready to do their part to find solutions.
Energy healing, like all other forms of healing, is a two-way process. It’s not about the healer doing something to make a client’s problems disappear. Healers can only offer support by facilitating the process of healing and showing the light.
Barring a few exceptions, recipients of healing are not meant to be passive. They are expected to open their eyes, recognise the light, be in charge and make every effort possible to move in the direction of light. Only then is true healing possible.
