Safe Self-Healing. Buckle up your seat belt, Blog-Buddies. Because I’m going to take you on a fast-paced consumer’s ride through energetic self-healing. Examining how it’s so often preached and practiced today. Looking for truth, rather than “feel-good.”
Nobody ever died from energetic self-healing, far as I know. But people sure have messed up their auras.
Especially unfortunate because that mess-up never needed to happen. Since discernment through energetic literacy can protect us from “self-healing” approaches that backfire.
In this three-part series I’ll supply a vivid example of one such unproductive method. Nonetheless, it’s quite popular.
Beyond that, you’ll learn how to avoid wishful thinking about self-healing. Leading to energetic common sense — consumer smarts, really.
Do you believe in mind-body-spirit being connected? Then it’s just plain smart to develop this new kind of energetic common sense. Therefore, I’m going into some technical details. More than I usually do, outside a how-to book or workshop.
Okay, what else? It’s going to be a bit controversial. Regardless, you might wish to share this article with friends who are into self-healing.
Because it’s so common for us to be given generalities that seem awesome. Maybe without supplying critical info about the particulars.
Since you’re a Smart Self-Healer… In your honor, for this article, I’ll refer to you as Smart Self-Healer.
Safe Self-Healing. Protecting Yourself
Seems to me, as a Smart Self-Healer, you have two really great ways to evaluate healing techniques:
- Clarity for understanding exactly what a specific technique does.
- Considering the consequences of any self-healing technique, revealed by energetic literacy.
- Deciding whether or not you really like the teacher of a self-healing technique. The more popular that teacher, the better!
Oops, maybe you noticed: I just listed three ways of choosing self-healing techniques, not two. 😉
Funnily enough, that third method may be the most common way that folks evaluate self-healing techniques.
- As in, “Hey, did you hear the latest? Everybody’s doing XYZ, and it’s such a great way to heal yourself.”
- Or “Google is my #1 source for finding ways to heal. I figure, whatever shows up near the top of the page has got to be good. Otherwise why would it be so popular?”
- And maybe, “Okay, so that self-healing method got to the top of Google because it’s an ad. But that only confirms how successful that healer is. Otherwise he wouldn’t have attracted all that money needed to advertise!”
For Safe Self-Healing, Common Sense Counts
Smart Self-Healer, I’ll leave it to you to debunk all these previously mentioned “consumer skills.”
Don’t they make awful substitutes for energetic common sense?
That said, let’s for the example I promised. Exploring the truth about a form of energy healing that’s wildly popular today.
Supposedly, it could help a lot. And heck, it “couldn’t hurt.”
Really? Together, let’s develop clear understanding. What, specifically, does that technique accomplish?
Before we’re done with this article series, example time! I’ll provide an example of aura-level consequences. So you can see how awful that misguided kind of self-healing can be. First things first, though.
Safe Self-Healing? Wishing on a Golden Bubble
Have you traveled much in the realms of woo-woo? Likely, then, you’ve encountered variations on The Golden Bubble technique. Or The Protective Bubble. Perhaps, The Bubble to Protect Empaths.
Anyway, here’s how this kind of self-healing technique allegedly works, broken down into chunks. Supposedly:
- Other people’s negative energies can intrude upon you.
- Imagine a beautiful energy bubble, surrounding you. If you like, imagine that it’s coming down from the heavens. As your gift straight from God.
- Energetic protection is easy. Provided that you use this technique every day. Until it becomes a habit.
- All day long, off and on, check your Golden Bubble. Is it securely around you?
- Should you slip up, re-imagine it. Love your beautiful bubble! This will protect you energetically.
Safe Self-Healing? Not When It’s Based on a Faulty Premise
Starting with Part Two, we’ll examine what the Golden Bubble actually does. First, though, let’s explore this: Why do so many people lack common sense about energy? Enthusiasm notwithstanding!
Ever since the Shift into The Age of Awakening, 12/21/12, everybody on earth has turned energy sensitive. At least everybody who wants to be. And that would include you, too. Right, Smart Self-Healer?
If you think back a bit, you may even remember when you became aware of energies. Soon afterwards, hello! You began to benefit from mind-body-spirit practices! Energy work! And especially energetic self-healing!
Maybe you’re wondering, what kind of skill could help you to make the most of your energy sensitivity?
Aw, maybe you’ve guessed already. (Given who’s writing this article.) Energetic literacy.
With Stage One Energetic Literacy, you start noticing energies. It’s a sweet beginning.
Hey, that’s good news but also slightly bad news.
Why Good News/Bad News for Safe Self-Healing?
Because Stage One Energetic Literacy is exciting and sweet. But inaccurate. Often terribly inaccurate.
Thus, doing a bit of energy reading here and there… feels good. But this good feeling can mask faulty premises.
One tends to think in terms like this: “I notice good energy and I notice bad energy. So self-healing is simple. Just take out the bad kind, then replace it with the good kind.”
In which case, techniques like the Golden Bubble appears to be brilliant.
Who doesn’t like icky energies. And who wouldn’t prefer not to have them?
Thus, to many, the whole point of holistic healing is this: Rid yourself of bad energies and substitute good energies. That simple.
Only Effective Self-Healing Isn’t That Simple
After developing Stage Three Energetic Literacy, our need for discernment becomes clear.
Why Stage Three? Because that’s the minimum for reading people’s auras accurately. Your aura and auras of other folks as well. Even reading people’s auras just fine from regular photographs!
With aura READING discernment, you can go on to develop aura HEALING discernment. As the founder of Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES), I specialize in developing techniques for emotional and spiritual growth. One among many professionals today in mind-body-spirit. As professionals, it’s sure helpful if we can parlay energetic literacy into precision skills for energetic healing.
Just as math is the basis for science, energetic literacy is the basis for energy healing.
Let’s bring more discernment, Smart Self-Healer, in Parts Two and Three of this educational series. For now, any questions?
Especially, do you have any stories of your experiences with, “Take out the bad energy. Put in the good energy. And it’s all soooooooo simple”?
