The Greek healer, Hippocrates, set the first standards for medicine in the form of the Hippocratic Oath.
A basic principle of that oath was
“First do no harm.”
This ethic is meant to be the guide for whatever intervention a physician or healer uses to assist a patient to heal because …
the actual healing itself is done by the body.
For example, you accidentally cut your finger. You may clean the wound and put an antiseptic on it, followed by a bandaid.
None of these things actually cause the cut to heal.
Healing is done by the physical body itself.
- Cleaning the wound and using an antiseptic remove bodies that may interfere with the physical body’s ability to repair the cut.
- A bandaid, or bandage, assists by keeping the cut clean, and may hold the two sides of the cut together, thus making it easier for the body to reconnect the tissues as it repairs the wound.
This is similar to how Energy Healing helps you recover from an illness or an injury.
In Energy Healing, the facilitator’s (healer’s) primary responsibility is to support the body’s natural healing processes.
This is done in a number of ways.
- Removing energy blocks that may interfere in the healing process.
- Supporting the body energetically so that it has the energy it needs to do the repair work.
- Communicating clear intentions to the body so it understands the expectations and goals of the person whose body it is.
- Assisting the body to let go of energy patterns that are interfering with the healing process, such as trapped emotions, limiting beliefs, and distorted vibrational patterns.
A healing facilitator communicates with expert energy healers in higher realms who may be able to see or perceive subtle aspects of damage that are outside the third dimensional reality.
Full recovery may require that those damaged area be repaired as well.
A well-known example of this type of situation would be a damaged chakra.
A chakra is a spinning wheel of energy. The most well known chakras are along the spinal column.
There are also many chakras of varying sizes throughout the physical and other energy bodies. Some chakras are part if the meridian system used in acupuncture and are called “acupuncture points.”
When a chakra is damaged or functioning improperly, a complete healing outcome may be compromised.
Each chakra may be a slightly different size, color and complexity, depending on where it is located in the body and the services it performs.
Chakras are a basic part of the energy anatomy of all conscious beings.
Humans and animals have chakras, and so do plants.
Mother Earth has chakras as well.
Within the physical body of a human or animal, the various organs and glands have chakras specifically designed to keep each one in balance and harmony by providing essential “life force” to that part of the anatomy.
When my cat Violet was diagnosed with early stage renal (kidney) failure, I discovered that one of her kidneys had a chakra that was misaligned and wasn’t able to function properly as a result.
By repairing Violet’s kidney chakra with energy healing, I assisted her kidney to function better. Using muscle testing, I was able to increase the energetic ability of the kidney to function by more than 50%.
This contributed to Violet feeling more comfortable in her body for a longer time than she might have otherwise.
In all types of energy healing, “First, do no harm” remains an essential ethical principle.
