Energy healing prompts the body to release blockages and harmful energy. When your body is releasing toxins, it is important to drink a lot of water and get lots of rest. After a treatment or during the course of several treatments, you may feel that your condition has deteriorated rather than feeling better.
Understand that healing is not instantaneous. Some people report symptoms such as runny nose, colds, diarrhea, stomach ache, aches and pains, headache, fatigue and other symptoms after treatment. These symptoms are caused by healing changes taking place in your body.
When healing takes place, the body and mind operate at a higher level of efficiency. Stored toxins enter the blood stream and are eliminated by the liver, kidneys, and bowel, and through the skin and muscle.
If a muscle hasn’t been exercised, it will feel sore when it is first used. So, organs and body parts may also feel uncomfortable as they adjust to healthier function. This is part of recovery and it is sometimes called the ‘healing crisis’. If this happens to you, keep in mind that it is a good sign and that it indicates healing. Once the toxins are released and the body adjusts to renewed health you will feel better. Focus on self-nurturing and the release of negative feelings, and continue the healing process.
Healing can take place on the emotional, mental and spiritual side of life, and can manifest itself in various ways, causing changes in your life. You may feel like there are more things to do and more loose ends to be secured. Some people report having difficulty with others, or feeling anger or sadness they haven’t permitted themselves to feel before. These feelings are often connected to things that happened in the past. We are holistic beings and our spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical bodies are all connected. So when healing starts, you may have to reconsider your priorities and life situation.
Where you once thought you had a problem with your job, now you may discover that the issues go deeper. As you heal and gain new insight into responsibility, discipline, learning new things and dealing with criticism, you may find it necessary to work on those aspects of yourself in order to be happy in any job you take.
Allow yourself to explore these things. Release old habits and feelings. When you feel these changes occurring, recognize them and let the process continue. But, remember that even when change is for the better, there is a period of adjustment required. Be patient with yourself as you make these new connections and settle into your new, healthier life.
Imagine that you bought new furniture, and that during the time you are removing the old furniture, your home looks and feels in disarray. You may see cobwebs in the corners where you hadn’t noticed them before. If people came to visit you during this time, they might think you are a poor housekeeper and feel uncomfortable in your home. But, after the dirt is swept away and the new furniture arrives, your home looks and feels better, and everyone notices and appreciates the change.
Hold onto this image as you heal, and remember that if you do experience uncomfortable feelings during the course of your energy healing treatments, it is because you are healing. Soon, your life will be filled with greater purpose, clarity and serenity, and you will feel better than ever before!
