All energy healing is equal. Yep, I said it. There is no difference between massage, yoga, reiki, tarot, hypnotherapy, a yummy meal, a sound bath, reading a book, going to church, a doctors visit, talking to a friend, or doing some retail therapy.
It sounds pretty wild, I know. Shouldn’t there be some special formula that heals everyone the same way?
There is, it's called whatever you feel like doing. Healing comes from awareness. All of these therapies are just forms of feedback given to you so that you can learn about yourself and become aware of things that are going on inside of you.
The truth is that you could forgo all of the expensive things and just meditate everyday. Healing is about intention, growing is about intention, and learning is about intention. These external self care practices are mostly just a way to get you in the perfect headspace to really be aware of your own actions, thoughts, and intentions.
We create our own realities. If you don’t believe me just start writing your gratitude and goals down on a daily basis and reflect after a month, or a year.
All healing is done within you by you, sometimes it involves the support of others. It is up to you to try new forms of feedback so that you can get more information about yourself. Energy healers in all forms are available to give you unbiased feedback about what they observe, then you have to take that information and work with it.
This means trying out various new (or new to you) forms of healing & self care. It also means that sometimes the things you try might not be part of your perfect self care formula right now.
Like trying new foods at the grocery store.
