Accessing the Healing Energy of Dreams and Intuition
Your Healing Energy Within
Did you ever wonder how your body manages to heal itself when you get a cut or catch a cold? Did you tell your body, "Heal this cut?" No! Your body just did it naturally. What really causes the body, or the mind or soul, for that matter, to heal remains a mystery to modern medicine. We can say good food or the right medicine brings the healing nutrients to the body. But that isn't the whole answer. The body sometimes heals without the right foods or certain medicines. Then, there are the so called "miracle cures" which have been documented many times over.
We often take this healing energy for granted. How can we access, cultivate and reap this healing energy in a conscious fashion to get healthier, and stay healthy?
The Body as An Energy Field
The body is the physical manifestation of an energy field which gives the life to the body and powers the healing process. Oriental medicine seeks to utilize and balance this power to keep the body healthy. In Japanese, this energy is called Ki. In China, it is Chi. And in India it is called Kundalini. Many martial arts and meditation practices developed to access and nuture this healing energy.
Maybe the closest thing we traditionally have in the west for recognizing this special energy was the healing power of a god. Healing came through the intervention of a divine power. To the Greeks, Aesclepius was the god of healing. Later in Christianity, Jesus the Healer along with the archangel St. Michael and numerous saints were, and continue to be invoked for their healing powers. Recently, Fr. Damien of Molokai was canonized a saint due to his reputed and documented healing powers.
Working with the Power of the Body's Energy Field
Now, more and more health care providers in the west are beginning to take notice of the healing power residing within, and there is much speculation that the future of medicine will be a combination of Asian-influenced energy work, along with traditional western medicine and medical procedures such as surgery. Already, we see acupuncture and Reiki being used in addition to drugs to help mobilize in an intentional manner the healing energies in the body.
Make Your Dreams and Intuition Trusty Monitors to Evaluate Your Energy Work
If you are already working with Chi or Kundalini in a structured program, using dreams to monitor your progress, and even give clues to the effectiveness of your practice is a real boon to your overall growth.
Dreams: The Royal, and Safe Road to the Power Within
Working with dreams is an important way we can access and employ the healing power within the body or obtain guidance and healing from a revered benefactor such as Jesus or the Buddha. Dreams are visual manifestations of this energy at work. See the dream imagery and you see the healing energy-as well as harmful or destructive energies which may be causing illness or harm. You can note what kind of energy is manifesting itself, and understand how this energy is being used. Knowing this, you can then learn to explore and purposefully harness this energy for your growth and well-being.
