LESSON 1 INTRODUCTION
"You are thinking. Stop thinking. Just do."
Words of wisdom from the book Shaman, Healer, Sage by Alberto Villoldo
Completion Time for Lesson 1 : Minimum of 1 Hour Practice Time and 15 Minutes Journaling
Learning energy healing isn't the same as doing energy healing. In the introduction you received a basic introduction into what energy healing is. Now we're going to get some practical hands on experience. We'll introduce you to deeper theories later. Right now, it's about learning the basic steps of hands on self healing.These first lessons are set up similar to a children's dance class. In dance class you learn one step really well, and then another. Then those steps get combined until it creates a small series of steps. Then before you know it you are putting them all together and they create a dance routine.
Learning to do energy healing is very simple when it's broken down into small manageable steps and that's how these first few lessons of the course are laid out. Rather than trying to learn everything all at once, we're going to focus on one simple step at a time.
The steps in lesson 1 are:
Set aside a minimum of one hour for lesson 1. It is best to complete all of the steps in this lesson together rather than splitting them up.
Before you begin, turn off your telephone, hide your cell phone, and make sure anyone else present in your home understands you will need one hour with no distractions. Also before you begin, set up a healing journal. You will be using this journal throughout the course to jot down notes, experiences, sensations, feelings, and insights that you encounter in each of the lessons.
The journal can be a bound book, but I find it most helpful to create an online journal. Open up your email account and set up a saved draft for keeping your journal. Everytime you add something to your journal, you simply save the draft again. Optionally you can also set up a notepad or word document on your computer.
You will use this journal to track insights and revelations throughout the course. It will also come in handy for the certification exam, as some questions will relate back to journal questions you are asked to complete in each lesson.
As you advance in your healing abilities you will not need formal steps to activate the healing energies and the energy centers in your hands. It will become a natural process. You will simply will it and so it will be.
When just starting out though, it helps to follow formalized techniques through each of the steps. Over time you will become more aware of the subtle energies in your body and the subtle energies of the universe. At that time, you will not be thinking any longer, you will be feeling, you will be doing.
While you are doing the steps in lesson 1 focus on what you are feeling rather than what you are thinking. This will aid you in tapping in to your intuitive healing powers.
Energy healing can change your life.
