Energy Healing

What is energy? Energy is defined as the “ability to do work, which is the ability to exert force causing displacement of an object.” Despite this confusing definition, its meaning is very simple: energy is just the force that causes things to move. Energy is a conserved quantity-the law of conservation of energy states that energy can be converted in

form, but cannot be created nor destroyed. It makes up everything that exists…us, our cars, homes, nature, everything we experience every day of our lives on this earth and in this universe. This is the scientific explanation of energy.

What I am going to talk about is how energy which we are made of and how it affects us and all living things. You are a living energy field. Your body is composed of energy-producing particles, each of which is in constant motion. So, like everything and everyone else in the universe, you are vibrating and creating energy. The field of vibrational medicine seeks to use the vibrational energy generated by and around the body to optimize health.

To many people, the idea of energy healing is thought to be more spiritual than medicinal. We consist of many vibrations, large and small. Think of these vibrations kind of like rhythms that happen on a grand scale, like seasonal changes and tidal patterns. They also happen in our bodies. Heartbeats, breathing rates, and circadian rhythms are examples of physiological rhythms we can see, feel, and measure.

What’s the connection between thoughts, behaviors and vibrations?

Researchers have known for a long time that thoughts and behaviors affect the rhythms in the body. For example, anxious thoughts trigger the release of cortisol, the stress hormone that stimulates the heart to speed up and slow down. Music and its sound vibrations likewise affect our thoughts, emotions and body systems. Proponents believe it’s possible to speed up or slow down the vibrations that occur on a cellular and atomic level by changing our thoughts, behaviors- and even our surroundings. Changing those nano vibrations, it’s thought could ripple outward, affecting our mental state and physical health.

What are the benefits of vibrational energy?

Growing research suggests that the strong connection between the mind and body is paramount in our mental and physical health. The jury is still out on how vibrational energy fits into the relationship between the two. However, it is believed that by using the mind to

make positive changes in the body through changing our vibrations

with our thoughts and feelings, we can affect change.

Raising awareness to change our vibrations to a level to aid in healing our mind and body in some of the following ways:

- Alter our mood.

- Improve our physical health.

- Help us stay focused in achieving goals and intentions.

Vibrational energy experts claim that when we experience emotions and thought patterns such as joy, gratitude, love, peace, and acceptance, we create a higher vibrational frequency, while other emotions and mindsets, such as anger, despair, and fear vibrate at a lower rate. Growing evidence is showing the correlation between our thoughts and feelings and how it manifests in our health and well-being. Higher vibrations and positivity bring about a healthier mind and body. Researchers are finding that vibrations of many kinds- electromagnetic, sound, and light can be used to encourage healing and stimulate

growth in the body.

How can we change our vibrational energy?

There are many ways to change and raise our vibrational energy.

Breath Work

Using rhythmic breathing to realign your vibrational energy to calm anxiety and lower your heart rate and to stimulate areas of your brain that influence:

- Comfort

- Relaxation

- Emotional control

- Well-being


Normally meditation requires sitting or lying in a quiet space, while focusing on your breath or certain body part or sensation. Being aware of these things and how they can change through meditation. There are all kinds of meditation, walking, guided, mantra. All have

great benefits, finding the one that works best for you to help you attain a feeling of balance and peace. Research also suggests that meditation may:

- Change your blood pressure

- Reduce your pain sensitivity

- Affect your mood

It’s also thought that vibrational energy may help alleviate the symptoms of:

- Irritable bowel syndrome

- Insomnia

- Anxiety

- Depression


Taking stock looking at your life and appreciating all that is good is often recommended as a way to raise your vibrations.

- enhance your psychological well-being

- lower stress

- make you more aware of the benefits of activities that promote physical health


Generosity is thought to raise your vibrations because it’s considered a pro-social behavior.

In addition to affecting your vibrational energy, there is growing evidence that it can prolong your life by shielding you from the harmful side effects of stress.


Vibrational energy proponents say it’s important to eat foods that contain higher energy levels. Keep in mind that no research has been done to substantiate vibrations in food groups and many of these foods are simply valuable for their associated health benefits.

Vibrational energy advocates propose that a diet rich in the following foods, which are linked to many health benefits, can increase vibrational energy:

- Leafy green vegetables

- Fresh fruits

- Legumes

- Minimally processed grains

- Honey

- Spring water

- Herbal teas

Vibrational energy advocates also suggest that the following foods are

not considered to have any value when it comes to contributing to

vibrational energy and may have negative impacts on health:

- Meat

- Fish

- Poultry

- Alcohol

- Dairy

- Fried foods

- Highly processed food

Outdoor Immersion

To raise or reset your vibrational energy get out in nature as often as you can. Exposure to natural sound waves, light waves, negative ions, and green spaces are all believed to benefit you. Multiple studies have shown that interacting with nature:

- Lowers stress

- Lowers blood pressure

- Reduces fatigue

- Reduces cortisol levels

- May lower your risk of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases

A walk in the woods or a relaxing rest next to a high-energy waterfall is

also likely to increase your cognitive functioning and your sense of well-


There are fewer mainstream methods such as therapeutic touch, healing

touch, Reiki and Yoga to name a few, that I will explore more in depth

in my next article. I hope this article gave you a better idea of what vibrational energy is

and how it affects our daily lives.
