How do you all feel about the idea of an energy body…?

And Chakras ( energy centers ) in the body.
And Auras being a part of us that shows how we feel emotionally and mentally.
Energy healing like Reiki
That everything is energy that cannot be destroyed only changed.

BS or not?

  • It is very real. We are so much more than this body.

    Have you ever stood besides someone and wanted to take a step back, and did. You have just bumped in to an uncomfortable energy field of another. The reverse, have you ever felt so drawn to a person that you get real close and want to touch them, again you feel the wonderful energy bodies. this is tangible eveidence of our energy bodies. There are some people with huge auras so that when they enter a room they attract the attention of most everyone.

    Disease shows up in the energy fields within and around the physical body for a year before it ever nests within the physical body. So energy healing can remove these potential diseases.

    I know I have had it done many times and I know because this is my career, energy healing. I feel people’s energy fields and everything in it with a blink of the eye and know all about them. It is an exciting field of work and it really works!

  • The energy bodies are simply part and parcel to the human anatomy.

    Even mainstream science acknowledges that our nervous system works on electrical impulses. So do these impulses just appear out of a vacuum and then disappear right back into it? No. It only makes sense that there is a whole energetic system that is part of the make-up of humans (and all living beings, actually.)

    It’s odd to look at nearly all the ancient cultures and find charts and other references that map the human energetic bodies (chakras, etc), and then come to the conclusions that all of those were just fantasizing about something. The ancients had methods of astronomy and architechture that only within the past few decades have we been able to duplicate. Why would they be wrong about the energetic body?

    It’s easy enough to do a few experimental exercises to start feeling these energies yourself:

    You could also join a good Tai Chi or Qi Gong class – these martial arts (termed Internal Arts) are completely based around moving and harmonizing the energy in the body. And we’ve all seen the amazing things that Eastern martial arts practitioners can acheive when they tune into and focus their energy bodies.

    So, if you’re at the point now where you can admit that there is some energy in your body, then it makes sense that one could use energy in order to work with/heal other peoples energies, too. That’s where techniques like Reiki come in. They work on the same exact principals as acupuncture and shiatsu, which are covered by most health insurance plans (you be absolutely positive that insurance companies wouldn’t cover these treatments if they hadn’t been proved – beyond a shadow of a doubt – to be effective). You energy body has a kind of circulatory system – these are called the meridians in Traditional Chinese Medicine. When these energy pathways meet, they form a chakra or nadi. These as the points at which acupuncture needles will be inserted. Just like the blood-circulatory system, pathways can become clogged or blocked – and it’s bad news in the energy body, just as impeded flow of blood is bad news for the physical body. Acupuncture, shiatsu, Reiki and other forms of energy medicine help unblock the energy flow so that the body can return to a healthful state naturally.

    In Europe many surgeons have hired Reiki Masters to be present during particularly risky surgeries, as they are able to stabilize the energies of the person, while the medical staff stabilizes the physical body. These patients need less anethesia during surgery, and less pain medication upon awakening, and also recover faster. There are even Reiki clinics in many North American hospitals, as more and more allopathic doctors are realizing the value of energetic medicine.

    It’s all real – and it doesn’t take you believing in it for it to exist. But if one learns to become aware of their energies, they can be more in-tune with their entire body-mind-spirit, and sense when things are “off” – getting the necessary treatments to maintain truly optimal health.

  • not for me it isn’t. I have experienced these energies and Reiki healed my leg when my heartbeat was too erratic for surgery. I can walk and I couldn’t do that without falling down before. Medical doctors don’t understand it but I am proof. It would be hard not to believe since I am the evidence. Also had ‘aura’ photography done that was right on the money right down to things that couldn’t be generalized. A computer did the reading and it was several pages. Very in depth and accurate. Too many internal awarenesses to be hoaxed. Not generalized at all.

  • I’m not sure if it’s BS or not but it sounds like something I’d be interested to learn more about.

  • Yes as a reiki practitioner I do believe in the energy of all living things…and maybe of some seemingly inanimate things…such as I believe the Earth itself is a living thing…auras-yes, chakras-yes…

  • Check this for Christian thinking on the subject. Straight from the horse’s mouth: St Paul to the Corinthians…

    “There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun and another of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness: it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I show you a mystery”

    In purely scientific terms we know its true. E=MC2 means that everything is flowing energy, even what we think of as matter. In other words, Matter IS Energy. So when we die our energy is dispersed and reconstituted elsewhere. As well as Einstein’s theory you will find it you study Quantum Physics it is of the same opinion. Quantum genius David Bohm, for instance, posits that we exist in a state of constant energetic flux with our environment. Quantum Scientists suggest that the universe is one huge web of conscious energy (yes, I said conscious) forming itself into different entities – planets, people, rocks etc – which are constantly interacting. Everything is connected, just as the mystics of all religions always said. If you don’t believe me when I say modern science tells us all this check it out for yourself… In Christianity it corresponds with the idea of the Holy Spirit or Pneuma (Divine Breath, same concept as Prana) which is the facet of God which is present everywhere…

    Whether Chakras & Auras exist is up to you. Myself, I practise Reiki and so know we do. In fact I would posit that we are more energy & spirit than body, but we are so distracted by the concrete reality of the body that we make the mistake of thinking it is all we are – that is why we are so often unhappy.

    Paul seems to think we have ‘Celestial Bodies’ and that the Resurrection enables us to exist as them. In John’s Gospel Christ’s description of being reborn in the Spirit suggests he thought the same. The Ancients called this the Subtle Body & believed it corresponded to our physical form. You find this idea in every culture and in every time period – except our own. Interestingly, instead of thinking that the lack of this concept might make us abnormal, we think of ourselves as having the most sophisticated view ever!

    TO ADD: A wonderful book on this subject is THE DOCTRINE OF THE SUBTLE BODY IN THE WESTERN TRADITION by G S Mead (published by Solos Press ISBN 1873616015). You will find that discussion of the Energy Body is not confined to Eastern culture (ie Hinduism) but occupied the Ancient Greeks & Romans, the Jews, the Persians, the Egyptians and just about every major culture in the West including the early Christians. As I say, we’re the only culture and period in the whole of human history that believes we are only lumps of meat.

  • My body is nothing but energy in one form or another

    As for magic supernatural energy that just doesn’t exist.

  • Of course your body is made up of energy. Everything is. Its just different configurations of energy that combine to make matter.

    As for energy healing…. not sure I believe in that. I’ve never seen any proof that it works.
