10 Types of Energy Healing Modalities
Energy – also known as Chi, Ki, Qi, Prana, Force – is all around us. All living entities – birds, flowers, trees and even us people – are manifestations of energy. We are living in a world of energy and we can tap on the various energy healing modalities to heal ourselves and others.
In the field of science, it has been proven that all materials in the physical world are, at the most fundamental level, manifestations of energy in various forms. Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Solid objects are made up of vibrational energy fields at the quantum level.
Fengshui, or geomancy, is an ancient Chinese art of harmonizing the energy of people and environment. The knowledge of harnessing the energy in the environment is essential for optimal living as it increases the possibility of success in various endeavors, be it business ventures, careers, relationship with people, as well as health and wellness.
In the ancient world of Egypt, people acquire the knowledge to harness cosmic energy through the pyramids for many purposes such as healing, the formation of rains for crops etc. Moreover, there are many shamans, or energy healers, who are able to heal people through laying of hands.
All healings are self-healing. Our bodies are endowed with extraordinary abilities to heal ourselves. We are energy and hence it is possible to perform healing for ourselves as well as others. There are many types of energy healing modalities which are impossible to list them all here. Here are 10 types of energy healing modalities which you might be interested to explore and learn.
