Course Motivation

Energy healing is not by any means a new practice. Indeed, different variations of the art date back thousands upon thousands of years ago, from one edge of the globe to the other. The only difference now is that by living in a more global community, these practices have managed to make their way into mainstream America, as well as just about every industrialized nation on the planet.

Today, energy healing encompasses a broad territory, with many individual schools of thought, branching out into even more new territory. Moreover, while we will introduce some of the more popular schools of thought within this course, it is not our purpose to laud one of them above the other. Instead, it is our intent to welcome you to the world as seen through the eyes of an energy healer, regardless of your particular specialization.

After you have completed this course, you will have a clear understanding of what energy healing is, how it works, and how you can make it work for you, in a personal or a professional fashion.

So, now that you know what you are getting into, let us get started by coming to a better idea of what is meant by the term "energy healing."

Science has proven that one component all living and non-living things share is energy. This same force also governs human beings. Though each individual's energy system is unique, the system as a whole is much the same from person to person. The focuses of the system are known as chakras, and there are seven of them.

Energy healers serve as the instrument through which the energy system is re-balanced. Through their extensive knowledge of how the human energy system functions, they are able to identify blockages and imbalances and help the patient get realigned and back into the proper state-of-mind. Once restored to the proper balance, the blockages, which are the root cause of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual maladies of many forms, are dissolved and well being is returned.

The ways that healers go about accomplishing this are as unique as the healers themselves are. Some of the most prominent variations of energy healing include:

  • Reiki
  • Radiant Healing
  • Hands-On Healing
  • Healing Touch
  • Therapeutic Touch

We will devote a little bit of time to each of these styles, and more, in this course.


In and For What Situations Will Energy Healing Work?

Whether a person suffers from chronic physical pain or painful emotional scars, energy healing can work. Whether a person is at the height of wellness or the depths of depression or disease, they can benefit from energy healing. Male or female, young or old, with or without "conventional medicine," energy healing holds the power to make monumental positive change in your life and in the lives of those around you.


There are many times that energy healing can be used to improve a situation. Moreover, some of them might even surprise you!

  • You can use energy healing by yourself, on yourself.
  • Someone else can use energy healing on you.
  • You can use energy healing on your friends and relatives.  
  • Energy healing can be used on animals.  
  • Energy healing can be used upon the environment.  
  • Energy healing can even be used across long distances!



This leads us to another natural question.


Can I Heal?

One of the most pressing questions potential energy healers find themselves constantly asking is, "Can I heal?"


The first thing that you should understand about healing is that healing, in one capacity or another, is inherent to human nature. The desire to minimize pain and suffering, to help others be nurture, and to grow is innate. You only have to accept this fact and begin looking inward to identify you own natural healing abilities.


However, though the ability to heal is inherent, the methods and degrees of healing are not even countable. There are infinite possibilities when it comes to healing. However, some qualifications are shared among successful energy healing practitioners.


Some of these skills and qualifications that they share include the following.



  • A dedication to perfecting the art of healing.
  • At least a basic understanding of the principles of running a small business.
  • A desire to hone your communication skills.
  • A belief and acceptance of higher states of consciousness.
  • The ability to practice relaxation and meditation techniques.
  • A capacity for guided imagery and creative visualization.
  • Strong intuitive abilities.
  • Compassion.
  • Good listening skills (even when no one is talking).


Nevertheless, more than any of these things, you must have the ultimate goal of self-improvement. For it is only when you are at peak performance that you can hope to help bring others to their optimal states.


Therefore, now that we have gone over the requirements and qualifications that are often shared between successful energy healing practitioners, it is time to review some of the most common reasons that people decide to get involved as a healer.


Common Reasons People Decide to Heal

While the reason that you decide to heal might be entirely different from the reason another student might have chosen to become a healer, there are four very common reasons that prompt this career choice.


1. They Have Been Healed Themselves

One predominate reason that a person turns to the career path of energy healing is because their own lives have been affected by another healing hand.


Being liberated from the bonds of imbalanced energy, disease, or illness is often a powerful motivator for personal growth and the desire to share that freedom with others around you.


2. They are Aware of a Natural Healing Ability

Another reason a person might be lead to vocation of a healer is because they have noticed that they have a natural healing ability. While this ability and capacity might manifest itself in various ways in different people, some are better able to recognize a propensity. Whether they are natural nurturers, actual healers or are simply empathetic by nature, these people are able to recognize the spark, and they run with it.


3. Curiosity

While perhaps not as admirable as other motives, curiosity is just as powerful. As our big world has been shrunk down into a global village, we have better access to traditional medicines and therapies that are attractive in their effectiveness and their difference. Therapies like yoga, Reiki, crystal therapy and other indigenous treatments are showing greater results, and attracting much more attention from mainstream publications and journals. This attention is attracting pioneering minds and individuals to get involved in the best new therapies around.


4. Frequent Exposure to Healing and Healers

Familiarity does not always breed contempt; sometimes it breeds interest and passion. Men and women who are members of families of healers or energy therapists, or other parts of the alternative medicine world, or have friends or colleagues related to the industry often find it quite natural to work in this field themselves.


Quick Clarification Regarding Energy Healing and Religion

While some variants of energy healing may include religion or worship, the actual practice of energy healing is available to anyone, regardless of race, sex, religion, or any other factor of the likes.


To become a successful energy healer, there is no need to join a particular church or ashram. Whether you are an Atheist, a pagan, a conservative evangelical, or a Catholic is indistinguishable. Each can learn from the subtle art of energy healing.


That is because energy healing is a discipline, a practice. It is a path designed to help improve people's lives in this life, not the life beyond the veil of death. There is no one you must pray to. No commandments to follow (okay, maybe just a few) Just a desire to heal.


However, there are a few final thoughts we would like to leave with you. Though energy healing is not a religion, it is an art that seems to be shared among several important religious figures including Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, saints, apostles, and other religious gurus throughout the expanse of recorded history!


So, get ready for this course, where we will cover how energy works, as well as how you can learn to sense the energy field and system in both yourself and in others.
