LESSON 2 STEP 2 : USING UNIVERSAL ENERGY
This step is going to cover where the energy comes from for healing. It will explain why it is not an ideal practice to use your own energy for healing work and how to avoid doing it.
It will explain the reason you use universal white light energy. It will also cover a practice session where you can experiment with doing this and see for yourself the effects of using your own energy vs. using universal white light energy.
WHAT IS PERSONAL ENERGY
The natural state of humans and other creatures is that of a "mostly closed circuit". Envision a circle with energy moving through it in a circular pattern. The energy will continue to circulate in this enclosed environment.
That circular environment is created by the auric field surrounding you. The auric field, also referred to as the human energy field is a "shield". It protects you from outside influences and the environment around you.
Imagine a multi-layered bubble of light energy that surrounds you top, bottom, front, back and on your sides.
That bubble of light energy protects you energetically as you go about your life. Some energy comes in through it and some energy goes out through it. It stays in a fairly closed circuit. The energy inside of it is your personal energy.
There are factors that increase and decrease that energy, but right now, we're only focused on what happens when you decrease your personal energy by using it for healing work. We'll talk more about the auric field and factors that increase and decrease your personal energy in a future lesson.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU USE PERSONAL ENERGY FOR HEALING
If you have not opened yourself to an outside source of healing energy you expend your own energy during the healing work process.
That energy gets used up and since your circuit is in a mostly closed state you now have less personal energy than you did when you started. The energy has "gone" into the other object and is no longer "in" you.
The energy may slowly trickle back in since your closed circuit state does have a trickle of energy that enters it, but the trickle of energy will not catch up to the expenditure of energy as quickly.
Here's an analogy to help make it clear. Imagine that you have filled up a bathtub with water. The bathtub has a certain amount of water in it now. Maybe the faucet on your bathtub drips, so there may be a "little" more water being added to the bathtub, but not alot.
Now say you walked away from the bathtub for 24 hours. If your drain stopper doesn't leak you will see the same amount of water in your bathtub, maybe a "little" more because of the dripping faucet.
But what happens if you pull that drain stopper for 2 minutes? 2 minutes and quite a bit of the water leaves. Even after you put the drain stopper back in place, your bathtub will have much less water in it.
Because (in this analogy) the faucet drips and the stopper is tight, the bathtub will eventually fill back up with water to the same level as before the stopper was pulled. But it may take anywhere from a few hours to a week depending on how much the faucet drips.
Weird analogy, but it works. You are the bathtub. The water in the bathtub is your personal energy. The water from the faucet is energy from external sources. The water that leaves through the drain is energy expended from internal sources.
During energy healing if you use your own personal energy without activating your crown chakra to outside energy it is like leaving the faucet off and pulling the drain plug.
EFFECTS OF USING PERSONAL ENERGY FOR HEALING
Couldn't you just expend the energy, then refill by tapping in to outside energy sources? Sure, but it's a roundabout way of doing things. There's also another reason for using white light universal energy instead of your own personal energy sources.
White light universal energy is infinite. It is abundant and never ends. It is also larger than any one individual person. By using white light universal energy your energy healing work will be much more powerful and effective than using your own.
So what are the effects of using your own personal energy? Common sensations include feeling drained, tired, and worn out. Other common experiences are getting a cold or flu shortly afterwards. Depleting your personal energy weakens your auric field, making it easier to get sick, be influenced by negative emotions and thoughts, and become imbalanced.
You can try this out for yourself if you like. First do a personal energy healing session as outlined in lesson 1, making sure to include the waterfall of light technique for opening yourself to universal energy. Then do a personal energy healing session without the waterfall of light technique. See what differences you feel. This is optional. If you do not want to experiment with this you don't have to, but the course is founded on students coming to their own conclusions, so we offer it as an option.
Doing this on a self healing will not drain your personal energy to the same extent as if you were doing a healing session on another person, animal, place or thing. It becomes more pronounced when doing healing work on someone or something else because the personal energy is leaving you completely and going in to the other object.
We bring it up here instead of in the advanced module where you do healing work on others because we want to get you started off on good habits from the start. It's better to do it right from the start rather than retrain yourself later!
In the private healing sessions, workshops, lectures and emails we receive from visitors, one of the biggest issues that gets brought up over and over again is, "Why do I feel drained/my pain get more pronounced/get sick after I do energy healing work on others? You can skip that trap by simply tapping in to universal white light energy.
You've already opened to universal white light energy once, in lesson 1. Now you're going to do 2 practice sessions. One where you don't open to universal white light energy before doing self healing work and one where you do.
SELF ENERGY HEALING WITHOUT OPENING TO UNIVERSAL WHITE LIGHT ENERGY
Follow the steps in lesson 1 excluding the first step, opening yourself to universal white light energy.
You just practiced energy healing using your own personal energy. You may have noticed that it didn't feel as strong as when you practiced using the universal white light energy. This is common when using personal energy. It isn't as powerful a healing tool.
Now let's practice self healing with opening to universal white light energy.
SELF ENERGY HEALING WITH OPENING TO UNIVERSAL WHITE LIGHT ENERGY
Follow the steps in lesson 1 including the first step, opening yourself to universal white light energy.
You just practiced energy healing using universal white light energy. You may have noticed the flow of energy feeling stronger and a feeling of lightness, warmth or tingling in your body and hands. This is common with this technique. You may have also noticed the feeling of energy flowing from the top of your head into your body.
How do you ensure you're not using your own energy? Simply follow the technique for opening yourself to universal white light energy outlined in lesson 1 before every healing session that you do. After a period of time it will be second nature, and you won't need the waterfall visualization technique. You will be able to simply say the words out loud or think them in your head. You will also be able to feel the energy entering into the top of your head.
Energy healing can change your life.
