How Can Energy Healing Help Me As An Empath?

My first time experiencing Energy Healing

The first time I received Energy Healing was in my early twenties, fresh out of a traumatic 4 year relationship. My heart felt like it had broken into a million tiny pieces. Being an Empath made things even worse at this time. Since I was young, I always felt emotions on such a deep level. The pain and suffering of the world felt as if it was carried on my shoulders. So when I went through this traumatic breakup, it brought me to a state of absolute despair and depression. 

My mom had just finished a Energy Healing course at the time, so I agreed to let her to practice on me. Lying on the massage table before the treatment, I felt nervous and scared not knowing what was about to happen. Then the session started, I closed my eyes and felt an undeniable numbing sensation on my face. My thoughts were completely still. In that moment, all I felt was peace and calm. My entire body was relaxed, and I could finally breathe without heaviness in my heart. It was a truly beautiful experience for me. Shortly after this session, I realised that I needed to learn more about my heart and soul. I had a strong desire to go inwards, so I started learning about meditation, Reiki and other energy healing modalities. From that day onwards my my life changed forever. Today I am a qualified Reiki Master and Spiritual Life Coach living in Singapore. 

Nowadays, Energy Healing is becoming more popular and well-known in many parts of the world.

Why? Because more people are being open and vulnerable in sharing their transformational stories about energy healing. Even Ellen DeGeneres, Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie openly discuss their love for Energy Healing. Are you thinking about experiencing some Energy Healing? Below are 3 reasons how Energy Healing can help you as an empath. 

Are you trying to heal from stressors?

Many clients contact me because they feel emotions such as grief, loneliness hurt and/or anger from stressors or a specific experience they have endured. These experiences could be a significant trauma, or may also be smaller shocks to our mental, psychological or physical systems from which dense emotions accumulate over time. Waking up with these emotions everyday is not easy. This dense and heavy feeling can be felt in your head, heart or stomach area. When you’re in that state of being, it’s also easy to believe that these feelings are never going to leave and are going to stay forever.

When these emotions don’t move through us, we end up feeling stuck and rigid in this state of being. The circulation of our life force energy gets impeded, much like a river with too much debris and rocks. Receiving or learning Energy Healing gives a gentle nudge to the emotional debris and can help you move through these emotions, which makes room for you to feel more peace, and love.

Do you want to let go of worries and concerns?

As an Empath, we are constantly feeling everyone else’s emotions and sometimes other people’s thought patterns. Do you have anxious thoughts? Are you craving a less cluttered mind? Do you wish you you woke up with a sense of peace rather than worry? After receiving Energy Healing, you will experience less thoughts and worries. A lot of my clients say after 3-4 sessions they can easily go into stillness and meditate, something they were not able to do before the Energy Healing sessions. Why? Because thoughts are energy. When you get an Energy Healing treatment, the love energy from the universe is flowing into your chakras, helping unwanted thoughts to move and dissipate into the core of mother earth.

Are you seeking a transformational shift in the way you live and approach life?

Have you ever heard that quote by Einstein, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”? Many of my empath clients come to me because they are looking for a shift in their current life. Whether it be career, relationships, health, or money, they are wanting a transformation but are unsure of how to begin, or how let go of old, unhealthy habits. When we bring our attention towards doing work on our inner realms, our outer world starts to change. It just starts with being open and willing to go inside, and be present with your soul. When your soul feels more presence and love, this is when your outer reality starts to shift. Energy Healing is one of the best ways to feed your soul more love, and an Energy Healer who can guide you on making lasting changes, creating the results you seek to see in your external world.

5 Simple Tips To Open Your Heart Chakra

Why Work With The Heart Chakra?

The Heart Chakra is one of the most essential chakras in our aura. If you look at the way our bodies are formed, the exact centre is located in the middle of the chest where the heart resides. Within every living thing, the centre is where source energy is encapsulated. When we are connected to source, this is when we feel more peace, joy, unconditional love, and compassion for others. We have the ability to deeply feel so many positive emotions when our Heart Chakra is open. Negative emotions can also be stored in our Heart Chakra. Emotions such as resentment, anger, hurt, loneliness, grief or sorrow can block the flow of the Heart Chakra, causing feelings of heaviness and/or depression in our emotional state of being. 

In Singapore, many of my clients often ask me, how can I heal and open my Heart Chakra?

 Below are 5 strategies to open this essential energy centre: 

Get Some Crystals and Precious Stones

Crystals such as rose quartz, moss agate, and jade have profound healing abilities on the Heart Chakra. Keeping these stones beside your bed while you sleep is a great way to move the energy around your heart. These stones promote feelings of unconditional love and peace. If you know a Reiki practitioner living in Singapore, they can channel love energy to these stones which makes the energy more prominent to promote further healing. 

Eat More Green Vegetables

Eating vegetables that come from the earth and are green can improve your health significantly. Moreover, not only are you improving your physical health, but your spiritual health benefits as well. Eating vegetables such as kale, spinach, cucumber, zucchini, lime, mint, and other green veggies can help clear the energy around your Heart Chakra. You will notice that when you eat more green vegetables, you will tend to feel happier and more energy throughout the day.  

Spend More Time In Nature

Living in Singapore we are blessed with access to an abundance of nature. Walking into a park, or a space where there are a lot of trees, plants, and grass is a great way to move the energy around your Heart Chakra. Visualise that the Life Force Energy all around you is penetrating into your Heart Chakra. A good mantra you can use while you’re in nature is: “My heart is a magnet for life force energy.” 

Be Happy & Smile More

Have you ever observed a person who smiles a lot. They look pretty happy don’t they? This might make you question if they are truly happy or if they just faking it. In 1872 Charles Darwin first posed the idea that emotional responses influence our feelings. “The free expression by outward signs of an emotion intensifies it,” he wrote. Many new studies are showing the benefits of smiling and how it affects our emotional state of being. Research shows that people who smile a lot, tend to experience more genuine feelings of happiness, joy and peace. So start smiling more, it costs nothing and opens up your heart. 

Forgive & Let Go Of Resentment

When you feel resentment and anger towards someone, you are only hurting yourself in the process. When we feel these dark emotions and don’t let go of them, this negative energy becomes stored around our Heart Chakra. One way to let go of this energy is to forgive everyone. Start off by sitting in a comfortable seated position. Start to focus on your breath. Then visualise someone that you want to forgive. After a couple of minutes repeat the mantra: “I forgive ___________ (insert person’s name). I am willing to release any anger, hurt or resentment towards __________ (insert person’s name). I replace with love and light.” This affirmation is extremely powerful and can move negative energy around the Heart Chakra. Author: Rishma Petraglia
