Healing modalities are gaining currency to bring back balance in life, believes life coach Tiesta Duggal
Kolkata/IBNS: Healing modalities, espeically energy modalities, are fast gaining popularity, according to Tiesta Duggal, life coach and an internationally certified workshop leader.
Part of the alternative healing practices, energy modalities or harnessing the energy movement of the human body to offer a cure for mental and physical well being, are believed to help people deal with the impact on their mind and body resulting from beliefs, thoughts and the environment.
Many people are opting for energy modalities workshops to identify their own energy balance and pursue self healing for a healthy mind and body.
According to Duggal, "What shapes our belief systems are our experiences in life, the challenges we face, the situations we have dealt with - especially between the ages of 1-21 years which is when our subconscious mind is developing."
"A child observes everything around him or her. The life story they witness in their childhood shapes their perception of reality and that is what they live by as they grow up," said Duggal.
For example, according to Duggal, if a child has seen his or her parents facing financial problems, the child is convinced that money is hard to earn and life is difficult.
She points out that in most cases, the child actually grows up believing that he or she will face the same situation, thus attracting a similar reality.
Many holistic therapists thus suggest that counselling complemented with healing help people to process their stored emotions and handle their imbalance in life, especially traumatic experiences.
Interestingly, Duggal also pointed out that even though energy healing and various other modalities are gaining populatity today, many of the modalities have been in existence for many years.
One of the traditional healing modality, Reiki, was discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui.
Its practitioners believe that human beings are all made up of energy, but we often notice this energy is blocked during various aspects of our life, leading to physical and mental health issues, financial problems, relationship problems, etc.
Reiki, defined as the “Universal Life Flow Energy’, focuses on dissolving the blocks and creating an uniform flow of energy leading to balance in all aspects of one’s life.
Hypnotherapy is a tool that helps us to reach an altered state of consciousness, which, in turn, allows our brain to be much more receptive to suggestions and helps to process all that is stored in our subconscious mind, thus greatly impacting our life in many ways, such as dealing with fears and phobias, anxiety, pain management, depression, eating and sleep disorders amongst others.
Emotional Freedom Technique works on a principle similar to acupuncture, where the various meridians (can be explained as the energy highway) are tapped to process stagnant energy and stored emotions, leading to an instant release and shift in the emotional state.
Emotional freedom technique is used to release stored trauma and emotions, release surpassed anger, relax tension, facial muscles and headache and provide relief in situations of anxiety, depression, stress and pain.
Heal Your Life Philosophy was introduced by the late author and motivational speaker Louise L Hay.
According to the practitioners, this philosophy works on recreating the connect with ourselves, our inner child, helping us reprogram our subconscious mind, release all our beliefs that do not serve us, release all our stored emotions, and create possibilities for our future.
Access Bars, a part of the Access Consciousness founded by Gary M. Douglas is a tool that helps us release stored tension and bring in significant changes in our emotional and physical state, believe its practitioners.
It works by gently touching 32 points on the head that are associated with the various areas of our life.
By flowing energy to these points, one can notice significant shifts and achieve mental clarity, relaxation, reduction in stress and anxiety amongst the other benefits.
Sound Healing is based on the principles of cymatics and the vibration created with the sound bowls, tuning forks, and gongs.
These, according to the healers, have a gentle, calming effect, thus helping a person break the energetic blocks, reduce stress, release pain, reduce anxiety and help in relaxation, increasing happiness and enhancing the physical and mental wellbeing.
Tiesta Duggal also pointed out that apart from the above-mentioned therapies, there are also others such as Crystal Healing, Sujok Therapy, Aromatherapy, Karmic Healing, etc.
According to Duggal, these alternative methods help people to reconnect to their core being, release everything in their mind and body that does not serve their highest interest, release the blocks holding them back in life and providing a direction and path to move ahead with in life.
