I am sure that everyone has in sometime of their lives had the thought and visualization of casting out energy from their hands. Like in the old sci-fi movies where the villain got zapped by the heroine in the fight for justice. Perhaps you have had the thought about a bothersome friend or a nasty boss, you would liked to have sent out a “death ray” to? But rather than sending out that kind of energy for negative purposes, why not for positive?
In ancient times ,and modern, the “laying on of hands” has been a recurring phenomenon. Jesus was said to heal the in firmed with his hands. Wizards were said to bless the creatures of the forest with a wave of his hand. Kings and Queens given their blessings with a touch of their hands. Native American medicine men and shamans used their hands to send “darts” of healing energy to an ailing person, while the practices of Anton Mesmer and Sigmund Fraud used the hands holding a shinny object to hypnotize their patients. The list is endless of examples of healing with hands, down through the centuries.
So what is this miraculous force that we have all heard of? How does it work? Is it real, and what is the method of executing this force?
I his book “Energy Work”, by Robert Bruce, he explains that “Pure consciousness is energy, and energy knows no boundaries. Imagination, emotion, intention and energetic actions are all kinds of consciousness and energy. “Where your attention goes, your energy flows” is a fundamental principle of energy work. And your energetic actions will always be shaped by your thoughts, with exactly the properties you imagine and intend them to contain.” So, it would seem that we all have the capability to harness and use this valuable force to our will. Manipulation of energy is a fact, and has been available for our use, forever. Then why isn’t everybody using it?
Actually, everyone is using the energy, only we fail to recognize what we are doing. From car mechanics, to hairdressers, to bakers, to stay at home Moms, we all use the power to affect changes around us. We all use it every day. The stumbling block is lack of our own CONSCIOUS realization of this. We have the capability to consciously Choose to do it. Once again, like so many other subjects that have been buried over the years, we have forgotten who we are. And most importantly what we are capable of.
Again, Mr. Bruce informs us that “Energy work is a collection of simple practices based on Focused Body Awareness.” He talks about “Tactile Imaging” within the body. For example, scratching your big toe with your thoughts and feeling, only. Or feeling the brushing of your hand with your other hand from 6 or 7 inches ,away from your other hand. Once we become proficient at these simple energy manipulations, it’s just a matter of time when we can actually “throw” energy out to another person or thing, and cause healing and change, according to our intentions. If we Believe and Know that the energy is real and being projected out from us like a laser beam or bolt of lightning, to affect change, IT IS SO.
I could write a book on this subject (and I might….) but for now, I hope I have “wetted your appetite” for the possibilities of this most valuable and almost forgotten practice. Try it out on yourself, our your child’s scraped knee, or perhaps the family pet. Like Mr. Bruce says, “The only way to understand Energy Work, is to DO the energy work.” The possibilities are endless, and the applications are unlimited.
