Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is. ~ Gary Zukav
Throughout history there are references to hands-on healing, and the laying on of the hands. But what exactly does that mean?
We are all energetic beings, and we are all capable of feeling energy, and giving energy to ourselves or others. Today I’m going to show you how to activate your own hand chakras, so that you can begin to feel energy in the world around you, and so that you can also begin to explore the concept of hands-on healing.
It’s a very simple process, but don’t be disappointed by the simplicity. Simple techniques are often the most powerful, and if all of us are energetic beings by nature, why shouldn’t this be simple?
Take a few relaxing breaths, and centre yourself. Stand or sit with a straight spine.
Hold your hands out in front of you and shake them as if you’re flicking water off them. Then put the palms of your hands together and rub them vigorously.
Repeat this three times.
Now gently separate your hands by about an inch or two. You should feel an energy like warmth, or a golden ball of light, between the palms of your hands.
Play with this energy. Stretch your hands apart a little more and see if you can still feel that energy between your palms. Experiment with drawing your hands apart and bringing them back close together, as if you had something sticky or elastic between your hands. See if you can increase and decrease the size of the golden ball of light between your hands.
If you lose the sensation, repeat Step One, and then try again.
Don’t worry if it takes a little while to fully open the chakras in your hands, or if you lose the sensation of that energy between them fairly quickly. It takes practice to strengthen your awareness of this energy.
This week, keep playing with this simple technique. As you get better at feeling the energy, practice activating your hand chakras, and then holding your hands over your own body, directing that beautiful energy back into you.
Can you feel heat or any form of energetic sensation as you do this? This is the beginning of being able to direct healing energy.
Next week we’ll begin to explore how we can use our hands to sense energy in objects. Until then, keep practicing!
