Self-healing begins with the mind, which can generate energy to accomplish the task of healing. Self-healing is energy healing.
According to the laws of physics, there is energy in everything, and everything gives out invisible energy, including the sun, the moon, and the human body. As a matter of fact, everything is some form of energy, which is either positive or negative. For example, your thinking, too, involves energy, without which the mind cannot function. If you "think" you can heal yourself, your mind sends out positive energy to your body for self-healing.
According to Chinese medicine, your body is composed of energy, and, therefore, your body will respond positively or negatively to other energies within and also around you in the living world. In other words, everything within you and around you is all inter-connected through energy.
Energy healing began in China more than 5,000 years ago. At that time, some soldiers who received minor wounds inflicted on their bodies soon discovered that their physical pains and ailments had miraculously disappeared, and that led to the discovery of energy healing. The ancient Chinese physicians began to believe that there was an energy system in the human body, within which there was energy communication between different cells and organs. For centuries, the Chinese have believed that "qi" (the internal life energy) is responsible for transmitting energy information within the body. Accordingly, the smooth flow or stagnation of "qi" accounts for health or sickness.
Your life is a journey through which you make many choices - some good ones and also some ones -- that build your health or the illnesses that are part of your experiences in this lifetime. Life has a purpose with a unique destiny for each individual. Therefore, it is important that you know yourself, and self-healing is "knowing the self" as a part of your destiny. Sometimes and somewhere along the journey of life, you may hit rock bottom and begin to despair. You may even ask the frequently-asked question: "Why me?" But that may be a time of self-awakening for you. You may begin to question how you may have found yourself in that difficult and despondent situation. True self-awakening will make you take a different path -- a detour from that journey you have been prodding along.Taking a different path creates the energy for healing.
Your self-awakening can be physical, such as a change of diet or taking up an exercise regimen. Your self-wakening can be emotional or spiritual, such as self-awakening to the power of love. For example, through the self-healing power of meditation, you may be awakened to a new awareness of reality, a new consciousness of who you really are and what your priorities in life are. Self-awakening may give you the intention to heal, precipitating in changes that will ultimately heal not just the body but also the mind. Your very intention to heal is healing energy for the body and the mind.
If you know yourself, you will empower yourself with knowledge to heal yourself, and that empowerment generates energy healing. If you know yourself, you will make more right choices, than wrong ones, regarding your health. In making those choices, you are creating energy healing to bring about self-healing.
Unfortunately, many of us place the responsibility of healing on our doctors. We readily relinquish our own responsibility to know ourselves to bring about self-healing. As a result, we remain sick and unhealed. Dr. Felix Marti-Ibanez, M.D., hit the nail on the head when he wrote: "Only by knowing the healthy man can we cure him..... To be a doctor, then, means much more than to dispense pills or to patch up torn flesh and shattered mind." What Dr. Marti-Ibanez meant was that you need to know yourself in order to be healed, because nobody knows your health better than yourself. Only you yourself can create that energy healing.
Self-healing begins with knowing yourself through self-awakening. Knowing yourself will empower you with knowledge for self-healing. The very process of empowerment generates energy healing.
