“When my energy healer works with me, she asks Jesus to help. Does that mean she is doing RES?”
This great question from a new client has prompted today’s consumer article:
- Check out five practical questions you might want to ask before receiving mind-body-spirit healing from anyone.
- And have you ever thought about this? Read today’s list of 10 different things it could mean when a healer “Asks Jesus to help.”
Sure, you may have great enthusiasm for the power of energy healing. For one thing, even if you haven’t thought much about it, you are living in the Age of Awakening. For everyone now, energy is a shiny new toy. It’s exciting. So it may impress you when any kind of healer says that magic word “Abracadabra.”
I mean “Genie of the lamp.”
Nah, just joking. I mean that magic word “Energy.”
Now let’s get serious, so that I can help you invest wisely when you are seeking assistance.
1. Which System, Or Skill Set, Is Being Used?
All aura healing is not created equal. Or interchangeable.
If someone calls that work “energy healing” or an “energy clearing,” most likely it is a form of energy medicine. Which is, by far, the best known type of energy healing available today.
One way to tell if you are dealing with a professional or not is to ask, “Which system of aura healing?”
Don’t assume. Ask.
Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) is NOT the same thing as energy medicine or energy psychology. And we don’t facilitate energy clearings. We facilitate permanent aura healing.
There is more than one valid way to help at the level of the human energy field. So ask. What, exactly, does that aura healer aim to do?
2. How Many Different Skill Sets Are Being Mushed Together?
In social life, friendliness is good.
In aura healing, a certain kind of friendliness is not especially good.
For instance, it is common for well-meaning healers to offer a friendly mixture of hypnosis, meditation, prayer, and mindfulness. If you think that shows professionalism at any of these four very different specialties, think again. And you might wish to have a look at this rather daring, consumer-oriented blog post.
3. How Did Your Aura Healer Get Skills?
That’s a fair question. Asking this does not make you nosey but smart.
For instance, I remember vividly a conversation I had when I was a speaker for Donna Eden’s International Gathering of Eden Energy Medicine.
Chatting with another presenter, Gladys, here is how I remember the conversation. After I asked what her specialty was, Gladys told me brightly, “I pull together what speaks to me from all the best healing out there.”
Turned out, she had read a book or taken an introductory workshop about this, that, and the other. Then she had proudly created the equivalent of a mashup CD.
Maybe that works for music. Could be brilliant for pulling together an outfit. But how well does that mashup concept work for producing quality healing?
To help people significantly requires SKILLS.
Unless someone has Stage Three Energetic Literacy — which of course you can definitely develop, even from this user-friendly book on aura reading — then what is your next best way to know what on earth is going on with energy healing?
Ask human-type consumer questions like, “How did you learn do this?”
Keep asking until you get a sensible, objective reality answer.
- “I graduated from the founder’s training program, earning professional credentials.”
- “I had a few sessions as a client. Then I took what I learned and hung out my shingle, because I’m way too smart to need more training than that.”
- “A spirit told me how special I am. Because of my talent, I have never needed to study with anyone human.”
Gee, which do you think is your best bet?
4. How is this work sourced energetically?
Recently we have had some practical discussion here about how work is sourced energetically.
As a Post-New-Age consumer, is it really enough that a practitioner, channeler, mystic, or religious authority makes beautiful claims? For instance: “This comes straight from Jesus.”
Which could really mean practically anything!
Recently we had some discussion about the importance of discernment in receiving readings or energy healing or energy spirituality. Blog-Buddy DAVID B. observed in Comment #10:
Channeling is a very different animal with different effects than talking to the dead, for example.
Generally it seems its about connecting with information on the other side without discriminating the quality of the source. Or the energy issues that may accompany such connection.
In his next comment, DAVID wrote:
I recall going to a Spiritualist church one time. They invite the dead to come through during the service. One side of the room became very cold and heavy as someones violent deceased father showed up.
Is it a good practice to open such doors? And yet they also practice energy healing during and after such services. Do these things really go together?
5. Name Dropping Doesn’t Guarantee Good Healing
How big a fan are you of name dropping? Probably not much. Because otherwise you would be reading a different blog right now. 😉
Back at the client quote that inspired today’s article, what does it really mean when an aura healer asks Jesus (or another Divine Being) to help?
Here’s a SHORT list of possibilities:
- It is a session of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES), facilitated by an expert who has learned trademarked systems for RES energy READING + RES energy HEALING. As part of the
RES Mentoring Program, this apprentice or professional has also learned how to co-create with Jesus.
- An expert at energy medicine has learned how to co-create with Jesus. (For example, I fondly remember Janet Mentgen, founder of Healing Touch, whom I interviewed for a magazine article. Janet didn’t advertise her connection to Jesus. She didn’t have to.)
- A Reiki healer, graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, or an expert at some other form of energy medicine… has learned how to work with an astral spirit guide… and considers that “just like Jesus.” (Granted, this healing work could be powerful. But, sorry, no astral being is “just like Jesus.”)
- A priest, nun, minister, or other clergy member — or a member of a religious group — has learned how to co-create with Jesus. It may be believed that this connection makes it unnecessary to learn any specific healing skills. (Interesting assumption.)
- A priest, nun, minister, or other clergy member; or a member of a religious group — has learned skills of energy healing. Because of the strong faith, that person understandably believes that this faith automatically translates into co-creating with Jesus. (Not necessarily.)
- A trance channeler believes that he is channeling Jesus. (Consumer alert: Divine Beings do not take people over and use them for channeling. We do not live in the days of Pentecost. We are living in the Age of Awakening. Therefore, with all respect, knowingly or not, every trance channeler is working with an entity.)
- A person with no particular healing skills believes that she is co-creating Jesus; and she further believes that this connection makes it unnecessary to learn any healing skills. (Unlikely.)
- A person with solid energy healing skills believes that, by loving Jesus, she has automatically learned skills for co-creating with Jesus. (Not necessarily.)
- High on a drug like ecstasy, a person is given wonderful gifts from Jesus to heal the sick, “wake up empaths,” and otherwise work great spiritual miracles. (Run!)
- A person in spiritual addiction, or extreme spiritual addiction, lives a spaced-out version of life where all is about energy. Or Jesus. And healing will come automatically. (Oh, really?)
You Will Know a Healing by Its Fruits
So true! This is one of my favorite bits of wisdom attributed to Jesus.
Beautiful fruits — that’s what I wish for every one of us.
Today’s article may have spared you some failed experiments. Guesswork can yield the dried-up oranges of disappointment. Get yourself only good fruits.
