Hands On Healing Techniques
Hands on healing is something all of
us can do without getting any "attunement" or doing a weekend course.
As humans we are natural healers, but there are a few things you need
to know to get started.
Basically, all you need are your hands
and an intention to heal or to channel healing energy through your
hands. This articles shall deal with an introduction and some
techniques to get you started on Self Healing. Of course feel free to
heal others around you as well.
Hands on healing can be brilliant in order to bring on deep
relaxation throughout your entire body and mind in only a few minutes,
and is extremely simple. If you are a little older and have higher
blood pressure, this could help you get your numbers down on days when
the pills aren't working. If you have trouble sleeping, this can quiet
your mind and put you to sleep quickly as well. You need to be open to
it and relax willingly but when the right energy is surging through,
you will have trouble holding onto your stress.
How Do You Know You Have Healing Hands?
Have you ever experienced energy coming out of your hands? If you have
never spontaneously noticed this, I'll ask you now to look at your
hands palm up and realise you have two large chakras situated in the palms of your hands.
Chakras are merely energy centres or seals, from the etheric, placed all over our body. We talk
mainly about the 12 main chakras, yet we have many more of them, for
example in our hands and feet. When we feel energy coming out of a
chakra, we feel physical sensations like warmth, cold, tingling, pulsing, and
the feel of a flow of energy.
Our hand chakras are connected to our heart chakra, and sometimes when
you feel love, you may feel an actual sensation in your palms.
Firstly, you will want to feel this energy coming out of your palms so
you know this is real. For beginners, simply lift your hands in front
of you so they are facing each other. Move them closer together and
further apart until you can feel the right place for them. It will be a
feeling like they won't move any closer together, like a force is
between them. This may be a foot or so apart. Now simply intend for
energy to come out of the palms. The palm centers are open and healing energy
is invited to flow out. Sit until it does so (usually only a few moments) and
your palms begin to feel warm. This is your natural healing energy and
your proof that something is happening here. Yes, you do have healing
How We Do Hands On Healing: 3 Steps
Some energy healers place their hands just above the body (as seen in
the above picture) whilst others place their hands on top of your
clothing and rest them there for five minutes in each position. When I
do a self healing, I rest my hands on my body as this is much easier.
Both ways have the same effect.
Now decide if you want to sit or lie down for your healing. Sitting is
good if you are watching TV (yes you can heal like this if you choose)
and lying down is even more relaxing and allows you access to more
places. You may want to put on some relaxation music.
It does not really matter on the order you use for positions or even
which ones you use. Healing energy, as it enters the body, tends to
flow around the entire body and goes to where it is needed most. I like
to start on my chest and then move my hands down to my abdomen, then to
my legs. If you are trying to heal a headache, you may want to place
your hands on your head, or if that is difficult ask a loved one to
heal you as they may have better access.
1. Do not have your hands touching each other.
Relax your hands and close the fingers and thumbs so they are all
together with an almost flat hand. Your hands will probably curve
somewhat and do not need to be perfectly flat (see above picture).
Place your hands where you wish, the left one on the left side of your
body and the right on the right side. Sometimes you may place one hand
above the other, it does not matter which this is.
2. Simply focus on your hands
and in a moment you will feel the energy flowing out of them. You may
focus for a few moments on this if you like, feeling the sensations in
your palms. Your mind may drift away now and the energy will keep
flowing. You do not have to keep focus on this energy. The focus is
only to start the energy and once it has started, it will keep flowing.
3. Leave your hands in that one position
for about five minutes or longer if needed. Try tuning in on your
intuition and let that direct your healing. You may move your hands
lower to your abdomen for five minutes, then to the top of your legs,
if you are lying down. If you are sitting, you can place your hands on
your lower legs or feet, then on your arms, your neck or your head. You
can simply decide now much healing you want. You can start at the feet
and work your way up to the head. I prefer to do a ten minute healing
focussed mainly on my chest or abdomen.
Once you have finished, simply remove your hands. The energy will stop
flowing of itself. Your hands are intelligent and know when you are no
longer needing them. You should be feeling deeply relaxed at this
Is Energy Healing A Cure?
Energy healing can help in all kinds of circumstances, yet it is not
necessarily a cure. Many times it can help to cure conditions, yet try
to have an open mind. Many medical conditions need other treatments and
you should always see a doctor first when something goes wrong with
your body. Energy healing is more of a supplement to traditional
I use it as a relaxation technique or as a way to actually lower blood
pressure, if a reading I take is high. I may get so relaxed that I
drift off to sleep. It really just depends on how you are feeling on a
Hopefully energy healing can find a place in your life. If you practice
it often, it can come in handy if there is an emergency, or as a way to
help alleviate pain. If you like, you may formerly study Reiki if you
feel you need an attunement to have a more powerful healing. You can
help loved ones and friends also if they need some help. You should not
offer this for money unless you have trained properly.
