Energy work has played (and is still playing) a big role in my personal growth. Over the past few years I have come across some really good books and healers that have helped me release the trapped energy I felt was holding me back. There is a lot of material on the subject out there but before you decide to take matter into your own hands you should know that “playing” with energy is not without consequence. So let’s have a look at a couple of books I’ve worked with recently and explore the conclusions I have drawn from that experience.
In the Emotion Code, Dr. Bradley Nelson helps us identify and release emotions that are trapped in the body, in the form of energy (please refer to the Building Memories article if you are not familiar with this concept). With the help of an “emotions table”, muscle testing and a magnet, he teaches us how to identify and release trapped feelings/energy, triggering an overall healing process. Dr. Nelson‘s book is well written and the steps are simple enough to learn and apply on your own in a short amount of time. But what I really like about this system is that it works under the assumption that the subconscious knows the right time to release these emotions. I also found out that it lets you know, through unrelated nagging feelings or bad dreams, when it is ready to clear out more “baggage” outside a regular session.
On the other hand, the Healing Code by Dr. Alexander Loyd offers a healing system that teaches us how to reprogram the bad concepts associated with our memories. Dr. Loyd explains that memories are stored images that can be coded with the wrong interpretation. These erroneous memories can be triggered by similar circumstances, therefore creating unconscious vicious cycles and physical ailments. This system postulates that we have access to a source of divine energy that can correct the coding at a cellular level, triggering psychological and physical healing over time. But while the scientific approach in this book makes it easy for readers to understands the mechanics behind the system, using it was a little bit difficult (for me at least). The other big difference is that we (the reader) decide what we need to work on.
And that’s where it gets tricky. How do we know which problem should be addressed first? Do we pick the one that hurts the most? Or the one we really want to get rid of? From personal experience I can tell you that every time I have tried to intellectually decide the best course of action for my personal growth, I chose wrong. Not necessarily because I am trying to sabotage my progress (even though sometimes I wonder), but because trying to be in charge of that process is simply the wrong approach. The whole point of this journey is to learn to let go of control and surrender our growth to a higher self that knows best.
So, would I recommend working with energy as part of your self-growth journey? Absolutely! But keep in mind that it should be used in moderation and under the guidance of your higher-self. Aka, if it feels wrong or if it looks like it could be the solution to all your evils, it’s probably not the way to go. And what would happen if you decided to just do it, despite a bad feeling, you might ask? Well, at best the experience will fall short of your expectations and disappoint you a little. And at worst, you’ll end up with one of those aching all over flue like symptom that will sharply remind you that healing can only take place when you are good and ready (as I am reaching for yet another Kleenex…sigh). What can I say, sometimes I am get stubborn.
