Thank goodness for counselors! An effective one can be such a blessing. We all go through situations and issues in our lives that can be greatly helped by seeing a counselor. It must not be an easy job listening to people’s problems all day. I wouldn’t want to do it, so I’m grateful others do!
I am fascinated by the new counseling field of “energy psychology.” Here’s a definition I found in an article by John Freedom, on a website called www.noetic.org.
“The term energy psychology describes a new field of innovative interventions that balance, restore, and enhance human functioning by stimulating the human subtle energy system. These techniques have spread throughout the world—largely via the Internet—and have been observed to catalyze rapid, dramatic, and lasting changes in feelings, beliefs, mental states, and behaviors. Just as we have a physical anatomy—consisting of our skeleton, organs and glands, muscles and connective tissue—we also have an energetic anatomy—consisting of the acupuncture meridian system, chakras and nadis (energy centers and channels), and the human biofield/s. The common denominator underlying EP techniques involves stimulating energy, whether by tapping, touching, or intention.”
Doesn’t this make sense? There’s so much more going on that we need to address than what traditional counseling can do. After all, we now know that only 10-15% of our thoughts are conscious. With the rest of our thoughts subconscious and the different ways we run or block energy, we have to find ways to access the subconscious and make lasting changes on those levels.
There are various tools and practices used in this new modality. John lists some of them in his article such as “Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT), Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT), Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), Heart-Assisted Therapy (HAT), and Healing from the Body Level Up (HBLU). Beneath this panoply of theories and techniques, EP modalities combine intentionality with imaginal exposure and energetic stimulation, energetic balancing, or both. Seemingly simple in technique, the results can be rapid and surprising.”
A nice complement to these practices can be the use of healing stones, with the awareness that certain stones have particular properties that interact with our energy fields to bring desired results. To expedite the search for the appropriate corresponding stones, we’ve put together various “healing pouches” to address the most common concerns. Here is a list of some of our healing pouches (you can see our full assortment by clicking here): Balance, Cancer Recovery, Confidence, Creativity, Energy, Focus, Grief, Grounding, Love, Healing Emotional Wounds, Nurture The Nurturer, PMS, Prosperity, Protection, Quit Smoking, Transformation, Stress Relief, and Fertility, Pregnancy and Childbirth.
You don’t even need to see a counselor to try some of these modalities yourself. For instance, there are many people who teach things like EFT. You can even try meditating with healing stones and see what enfolds! It’s a whole new world and it’s exciting to see the transformation taking place on the planet!
