What is Energy Healing?

From Reiki and Qigong in the Far East to Yoga in India and Quantum Healing in the West, the world is full of various methods of working with subtle energies. Even within these disciplines there can be significant differences amongst practitioners, leaving us to wonder what is energy healing anyway?

Intuitive Energy Healing

Working with energy and energy healing is something that’s paramount to my practice both personally and in my work with clients. So what is Intuitive Energy Healing? Essentially Intuitive Energy Healing is what is sounds like – working intuitively with your energies, rather than following a set protocol or standard practice. It’s a very tailored, dynamic approach to knowing oneself and working in each moment with what arises. 

Is Intuitive Energy Healing Effective

Absolutely! It involves you claiming your power as a self-healing wise woman. It’s you peeling away the gunk and muck and finding the stability within to slow down, get silent, and feel.

How intuitive Energy Healing Works

The Subtle Creates the Gross. The subtle, intangible, invisible parts of you are the most powerful – it’s not the physical. These building blocks create the physical. They are the blueprints and guidelines for the physical. When the physical is experiencing dis-ease and dysfunction, it’s because the subtle parts are instructing it to do so. This isn’t intended to be shaming or blaming; this is an incredibly empowering revelation! This means that by addressing those subtle layers (our thoughts, unprocessed emotions and traumas, and the like), we can create and recreate our desired physical experience! Heck yes!

You Are Your Own Best Healer

You are living your felt experiences in each moment to moment flow. You know what’s happening in your experience better than anyone else does. There’s no authority outside of you that has the answers or the “fixes” to what ails you. In practicing things such as Intuitive Energy Healing, you are reclaiming your sovereignty and power to heal yourself in each moment. As I said, the subtle creates the gross, and with dedicated compassion, attention, and intention, you’ll being to powerfully rewire the subtle aspects of yourself that were going awry and creating dis-ease.

How to Practice Intuitive Energy Healing

Befriend your subtle energies first by recognizing them. Conduct a four-level check-in and assess how each of your bodies are doing – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Tuning into sensation in your physical body is a great place to start. Additionally, notice which of your five senses is the most sensitive, as this can provide clues for how energy and your intuition will most likely speak to you.

Notice what’s alive for you emotionally and how those emotions are expressing themselves through your body. Notice the images, thoughts, words, and stories in the mental body. And lastly, notice the quality of the spiritual/energetic body; it’s an incredibly subtle, nuanced layer of our being that can feel challenging to identify, especially if this is a brand new concept.

With practice, you’ll be able to see the exchanges among the four levels and how they dance with each other within you. You’ll be able to identify your needs more readily and become more skilled in moving what’s stagnant, settling what’s chaotic, and grounding what’s too spacey.

How to Strengthen Your Intuition

Intuitive Energy Healing relies on your connection to your intuition. Here’s some resources to help you continue to strengthen that connection and become your own best healer.

Shadow Work

At its core, Shadow Work is a process of integrating parts of ourselves we’ve disowned, shunned, or bypassed with the purpose of reclaiming and empowering ourselves through our trials and traumas.

Energy Healing

We can’t truly change the tangible, gross manifestations of our lives without tending to the subtle building blocks that make up those very manifestations, and understanding the power of these subtle and unseen energies is vital to the success of any holistic practice.


Movement allows us to become fully embodied, noticing your sensorial experience, noticing your bodily needs, feeling your body from the inside out and outside in, observing the subtle interplay between your environment, your thoughts, your emotions, and your physical body.

Flower Essences

Flower Essences are one of the safest and most effective ways of getting the root (no pun intended) and subtle building blocks of your experience. So if you’re curious about Flower Essences then I hope you’ll find the answers you’re looking for in this little introduction to Flower Essences I’ve put together.

Connection to Nature

Nature is not this separate entity that exists outside. You are Nature. Nature is you. There is no distinction.


One of the things that I love about crystals so much is that while we can all talk about things unseen, about vibrations and subtle forces, about ancient times and secret depths, crystals are the physical manifestations of those concepts made tangible right in front of us.
