Energy healers - how would you explain what you do to the average person?
I’ve practised a form of hands on healing for years now (akin to reiki, but much simpler form) but it’s always been a somewhat private practice, akin to prayer or meditation. I go to place where we practice together every week, and sometimes I bring my friends there too.
I volunteered to teach hands-on-healing at the “free school” the Occupy movement here in Hong Kong has set up, and for the first time, I’m having to articulate this practice to people who may not be so familiar with this form.
The point here is not to convince people whether the healing can “work” or not, for me that really isn’t the point. Rather, it is to share the experience of letting them know that we all have this capacity to access our qi / prana… that it’s a dimension of ourselves that we—if we wish to—can get in touch with and share with others.
So for the jellies who heal here—how do you explain what you do to those around you, in a way that makes it accessible to them?
