We hear about it and it seems pretty straightforward, but what is energy healing, actually? Why is it important to heal and protect your energy? We will break it down for you here.

What is energy?

Energy is around us and it is us. This has been scientifically proven and we have been studying energy for thousands of years. The Chinese culture has Qigong; the Japanese have Reiki; Indian culture talks about Chakras and pranas. We are energetic and we vibrate. Maggie H, a Qigong master and founder of Jungdohon Meditation, explains it:

What we perceive as empty space around us is not a void. Modern science has proven that space is full of something, and that something can be called Ki, Qi, or Reiki. Until now, there has been no distinction between these different forms of energy; it is referred to under the umbrella term “Qi.” Recent studies have shown that there are up to 600 different forms and frequencies of energy present in the world around us. Through Jungdohon Meditation, you can access an energy frequency that far surpasses the general level of Qi used by practitioners. Qi is not subject to the limitations of time or place and can assist in attaining a higher level of practice in a safe and secure fashion. — Maggie H

What is energy healing?

"Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body's subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body's inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated. " - Marci Baron

Why is it important to heal your energy?

Healing your energy is essential to ensure you are not drained or blocked, to help you feel balanced and in the flow. Maggie H describes it as being a battery that we need to recharge. Sometimes it's not enough to do things that make us feel relaxed and nourished. Sometimes we need dedicated healers, especially if we have a blockage. A blockage can come from trauma, stored stress, and emotion, among other things. Healing these to find a good energy vibration will in turn attract positive things.
