Elizabeth Murphy, senior at BMHS, took the opportunity this past weekend to rid herself of negative vibes with a ritual called an ‘Energy Healing’.
What exactly is an Energy Healing? Over the past couple of years, energy healings have become a trend most popular on the West Coast. It is said that we as people have an energy field surrounding our bodies that absorb and deflect the energy of people and things going on in our daily lives, constantly changing and altering based on our surroundings. Over time, these energy fields can become overwhelmed with these changes and become clogged/stuck causing one to focus only on problems or negativity. It has been proven scientifically that energy healing through various forms (reiki, distance healing, and crystal energy healing), is incredibly effective in balancing and empowering your energy and is even used in some major hospitals to treat the ill. More than 50 hospitals in the U.S use energy healing on their patients.
Murphy has a family member who works at Norwalk Hospital as a nurse and on the side practices energy healings. She told PrideTime, “I had a friend go through with the healing about two weeks before me, and after seeing the results I decided to get one myself. I would highly recommend it for everyone... especially high school students even if you are unaware of clogged energy or energy in general”.
When asked about her experience Liz said, “It was about an hour long process of Reiki in a room full of relaxing incense, salt lamps and candles plus meditational music that really helped to calm my nerves. He made a lot of physical motions of throwing and cutting the energy and explained everything clearly before going through with it.” Reiki is a form of energy healing in which the client lays on a table and the practitioner manipulating the energy field with their hands. Most subjects of Reiki claim to experience warm tingling sensation during their session.
Liz told PrideTime, “Afterwards I left light, almost new. It was like weight off my shoulders, the anxiety I was experiencing before was gone and my mind and emotions were at a more peaceful state”.
Energy healings are not uncommon, in fact they are incredibly accessible. There are two companies in Norwalk with such practices, Healing ENERGY and Angelic Healing, and many more around the country.
