INTUITION AND THE ENERGY HEALER OF TOMORROW
Research Supports the use of intuition in at least a limited capacity for subtle — and maybe even all — energy work. Norman Shealy, MD, for example, published a study referencing the work of eight psychics to diagnose seventeen patients. These diagnoses were 98 percent accurate in making personality diagnoses and 80 percent correct in determining physical conditions.
Research done by the HearthMath Research Center at the Institute of HeartMath in California is corroborating the existence of intuition and its accuracy. Most of its studies showcase the heart as a key intuitive center, responding even to information about the future. As an example, the heart decelerates when receiving futuristic, calming stimuli versus agitating emotional stimuli.
A myriad of issues are involved in using intuition for energy work, including questions about boundaries; the importance or applicability of the information; accuracy of interpretation; the unpredictable and changeable nature of the future; the effects of the information the recipient (i.e., to “prove” or “disprove” the data); and overriding all of these, the intuitive skills of the energy professional.
Regardless of the inexact nature of intuition, a professional should not be embarrassed to exercise intuition in his or her trade. Energy work is an art and has traditionally encompassed intuition.
A CHAKRA-BASED APPROACH TO INTUITION
One of the most accessible ways to explore and increase psychic gifts is through a chakra-based approach. As I have proposed and described in other books, each of twelve major chakras houses a different type of psychic ability. Psychic talent is the raw ability to gather, decode, and send psychic information. Individual chakras operate on different vibratory bands; therefore each one works with a different type of psychic information. Psychic Energy is simply a waste version of energy than sensory. What a person “picks up” or “gives off” can be translated into physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energies of considerable impact — negative or positive.
We all have different innate gifts — and more-powerful versus less-powerful chakras By evaluating which chakras are your strongest, you can also determine which psychic gifts are most available for your use.
This theory emphasizes that, while everyone is psychic, not everyone uses his or her innate gifts in an appropriate or healthy manner. Variour issues, perhaps from childhood, culture, experiences, or religion upbringing, might create problems with psychic boundaries. Perhaps the fields around the body do not filter incoming psychic energy in a helpful fashion. Maybe internal programming is distorting the chakra’s ability correctly collect, interpret, or disseminate psychic data Quite often, energy professionals are “too psychic,” in that they absorb psychic information that is unhelpful or dangerous to themselves. This creates psychic boundary problems, which can be addressed by shifting from being psychic to being intuitive. This involves setting mindful, emotional, and energetic parameters to control the flow of energy in and out of the chakras and auric fields.
The Following Chart shows which psychic gifts are located within each chakra, how the gifts work when unfiltered, and how they shift when the operator develops intuitive boundaries.
|CHAKRA||PSYCHIC GIFT||POSITIVE PSYCHIC||NEGATIVE PSYCHIC||INTUITIVE GIFT|
|FIRST||Physical sympathy (a factor in psychometry, dowsing, psychic surgery, kinesiology, telekinesis, and hands-on healing)||Senses others’ physical problems and the reasons for them.||Absorbs others’ illnesses and physical conditions and cannot get rid of them||Physical Empathy: registers others’ physical conditions but releases them; can help heal them.|
|SECOND||Feeling sympathy||Feels others’ emotions and can decipher them.||Absorbs others’ feelings and hold them in own body||Feeling empathy: reads others’ emotions and can help heal them|
|THIRD||Mental Sympathy (Clairsentience)||Knows what others are thinking or believe||Thinks that others’ beliefs or thoughts are one’s own||Mental Empathy: Determines belief-system causes of others’ issues and provides clarification|
|FOURTH||Relational Sympathy (a factor in hands-on healing)||Can sense others’ needs and desires; can channel energy for healing||Assumes responsibility for others’ needs, onset desires, and healing||Relational Empathy: can determine others’ needs and provide assistance but invites divine help for the rest.|
|FIFTH||Verbal Sympathy (Also called channeling, transmediumship, telepathy, and clairaudience)||Can receive data form another person or spirit, as well as tones, music, or sounds||Cannot separate own thoughts from those outside of the self; can be overtaken by spirits||Verbal empathy: controls opening and shutting for receiving communication.|
|SIXTH||Visual Sympathy (clairvoyance, futuring, precognition, use of “the sight”, remote viewing, reading the aura)||Sees images, visions, pictures, colors, with eyes or inner sight||No control over flow or type of images; often mainly negative; cannot interpret what is real||Visual Empathy: Receives revelation when needed able to interpret; can heal others with visions.|
|SEVENTH||Spiritual Sympathy (also called prophecy and a factor in intentionality, prayer, meditation)||Can Sense consciousness development, purpose, destiny, or spiritual guides of others||Vulnerable to spiritual attacks; overly affected by evil or negativity; sense of powerlessness||Spiritual empathy: manages access to higher guides to help self or others; uses prayer, meditation, intention toward healing.|
|EIGHTH||Shamanic sympathy (a factor in soul journeying, remote viewing, retrocognition, projection, precognition, the exorcism or summoning of spirits, and work with restrictions)||Walks between worlds and dimensions; not bounded by time — past, present, or future||Vulnerable to entities and issues from other worlds, people, and own past lives||Shamanic Empathy: can connect to or visit other worlds and dimensions to obtain information or healing energy or conduct energy and entity shifts.|
|NINTH||Soul Sympathy||Can tell what is going on in others’ souls||Takes on others’ soul issues or global problems||Soul Empathy: Senses others’ soul needs or global needs and determines how to create harmony|
|TENTH||Natural Sympathy ( a factor in natural-based healing)||Links with elements, beings, and energies of the natural world||Becomes a bit of natural elements, beings, and energies||Natural empathy: receives and can share information and healing energies from the natural world.|
|ELEVENTH||Force Sympathy||Conduit for natural and energetic forces, such as wind or spiritual beings||Run by outside forces, leading to extreme negativity or out-of-control power||Force empathy: can pick and choose which forces to use, tap into, and direct for positive change.|
|TWELFTH||Personal Aptitudes (Special and unique abilities related to one’s specific purpose — similar to the siddhi abilities discuss in esoteric texts.)||Differs person to person but always further directed use of the psychic for a higher purpose (Example: A teacher could decide to “receive” the psychic data to conduct a particular lesson; the intuitive process allows for control of subject matter whereas the psychic does not.||Differs person to person but is an extension of personality traits (Example: if someone has a keen memory and is a teacher, this would involve psychic ability to “hear” data related to subject matter; this unfiltered process can expose the teacher to inaccurate or ineffective data.||Differs person to person but always helps others achieve their spiritual purpose (Example: A teacher would “ receive” only the psychic information that would meet the highest ends of his or her students.|
A few definitions for those that may not fully understand the nomenclature/terminology:
Retrocognition: Knowledge of the Past
Shamanic Work: The Art or energetic walking between worlds and dimensions with full access to all intuitive abilities, usually while in an altered state. Abilities might include entity detection or exorcism; dealing with possession (an attachment to an entity or a part of it) or recession (part of the self is in something or someone else); Soul Retrieval and healing (the soul or part of it is absent from the body): delivering people from energetic bindings, such as cords (energetic contracts between two or more people or souls), or life cords (attachments between two or more parts of the self); codependent bargains (energy contracts where only one of the members gains); and curses (negative energy fields that hold one or more in bondage.
Spiritual Techniques: The use of connection with a divine or nonlocal reality to induce change, including the use of religious prayer, intercessory prayer, non-directed prayer, non-local healing, meditation, and contemplation.
Visualization: Clairvoyance or perception of images, spirits, visions, or dolors; reading the aura (energy field around the body); various types of perceiving (or creating) the future or the past, including foretelling, precognition, and recognition; and remote viewing, the ability to perceive what is going on outside of the self, sometimes at great distances.
One of the newest words in the lexicon of subtle energy healing is intentionality. This involves the projection of awareness toward a desired outcome or object. In many ways, it is the sum total of the psychic abilities that one possesses. If you set a positive and noble intention, your intuitive abilities will naturally align to help achieve it.
As explored, as healers are energy healers. Following a code of ethics serves the healer as well as the patient. Subtle energy healers so commonly use intuition that it’s important to add an additional level of ethics, one seeped in knowledge, practical application, and boundaries.
