“All energy healers agree that healing results from reconnecting to the natural flow of energy from our essential being, bringing us back to our innate authentic self. Wouldn’t it be great if we could consciously do that simply by making a decision to be authentic and connected, and then live from that alignment? Yet for most us this not possible because although we can have a healing experience that brings us into temporary connection and alignment, typically we are not able to maintain the higher energy flow and then slip back into our accustomed patterns of thoughts and reactive behaviors. This is all too common because of how deeply embedded these patterns are in us, since we have unconsciously practiced and held them over the course of our life (and lifetimes!) These are our “bad” energy habits that we must consciously learn to break free of if we are going to be able to maintain this new level of mental and physical health. The new energy flow we experience in a healing becomes a guiding beacon for us to follow and practice in our daily lives. The more accustomed we become to the higher energy or vibration that we experience during healing, the easier it is to recognize and maintain during the rest of our life. That’s why repeated healings are so useful, but even with repeated healings we must still dedicate ourselves to reconnecting and expressing this essential being daily in our lives if we are to enjoy the full benefits of healing work.” So it is the willingness to practice and let go to this higher vibration each morning as we face our day that brings us into the higher vibrations that we seek and crave. Practice makes permanent.
