Listed below are some principles common to all energy healing.
Everything is energy.
We are energetic beings.
Energy follows thought.
Universal life energy can be directed through the hands to facilitate healing.
Our attention is like a beam of energy and affects whatever it is focused on, hence energy healing does not have to be hands-on.
We have an energy anatomy just as we have a physical anatomy.
The physical body can be considered the densest expression of the human energy field.
Greater coherence, flow and balance in the human energy field can facilitate healing.
Free flow of energy is essential to health and well-being.
The energy healer is able to enhance his/her own energy field sufficiently to positively affect the energy field of someone who is less coherent.
Becoming centered and thus creating greater coherence in our energy field not only promotes self-healing but is the basis of using our energy to support the healing of another.
The healer can influence the energy field of the healee in a variety of ways - through the medium of the hands, attention, and the use of his/her own energy field. A kind of resonance takes place between the two fields, set in motion by mutual intention.
Various models depict the energy field as being in layers, including layers which support the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of life.
Energy is the common denominator in all levels of human life; therefore energy healing is automatically holistic.
Energy healing involves one of more of the following:
Increasing the energy available to be used for healing,
Facilitating the smooth flow of energy throughout the energy field through removal of blocks or congestion,
Altering the quantity and/or quality of energy in various parts of the energy field,
Creating greater symmetry and balance in the energy field, and/or
