Energy Healing Modalities for Baby-Boomers

There are so many energy healing modalities that the list is pretty much exhaustive. So, I will share ‘my’ list of energy modalities that I have actually used and let you know what I experienced from them.

Access Consciousness

Access Consciousness ® was developed by Gary M. Douglas in 1995 and later joined by co-creator Dr. Dain Heer in 2000.  According to their website, “Access Consciousness is a different point of view about life. It allows you to change anything you cannot change and create everything you desire in a different and easier way. The aim of Access is to create a world of consciousness and oneness, where everything exists and nothing is judged.”

For a few hundred dollars and a weekend of one’s time, you can be trained in the first level of Access Consciousness.

A fundamental ‘tool’ of Access Consciousness is ‘living in the question’ rather than seeking answers. Access Consciousness suggests that ‘an open-ended question opens the door to a different set of possibilities, an infinite set of possibilities.’  

A few examples of the questions practitioners use are:

  • Instead of asking “What’s wrong with me?” ask “What’s right with me I’m not getting?”
  • Instead of asking “Could it get any worse?” ask “How does it get any better than this?”
  • Instead of deciding “Nothing is going to change here” ask “What else is possible that I’ve never considered?”

Practitioners are trained in how to ‘run energy’ by placing one’s hands on the client’s head in various patterns while the client is encouraged to make ‘clearing statements’ to rid themselves of beliefs that are holding them back from the life they desire.

My Experiences with Access Consciousness

I took the training for the first level. I prefer to be a client over being a practitioner.

I enjoyed the shift and release in blocked energy that I experienced through the year or two I went to a couple of different practitioners. I noticed that at the beginning of using this modality I would experience a lot of leg twitches, and yawning as the blocked energy shifted and was released. Near the end of the session my body, mind and emotions were much more relaxed and calm. After working with a second practitioner for several months we noticed that there were very few leg twitches or yawning happening even at the beginning of sessions so we started working with other energy modalities she was trained in.

I found as I started knowing more and more Access Consciousness practitioners they all started to ‘live in the question’ by ending all their conversations and emails with ‘how does it get any better than this?’  Or, ‘What else is possible?’ that, to me, I felt they were beginning to sound like little parrots, kinda hokey and brainwashed… just my ‘judgment’…

Whether you think ‘energy healing’ is all a bunch of hokum, there is a lot of scientific evidence that goes back several decades, even centuries that point to energy within and all around us. Think Nikola Tesla, quantum physics, or even going back to ancient wisdom teachings and theology or religion.

Some energy modalities are easy to learn and some are more complicated. Some can be self-administered and others are generally administered by a certified practitioner. Some are fairly inexpensive; others cost a lot of money either for training or receiving the treatment. It’s up to you to seek out and see which one(s) works for you.

Disclaimer: Certain ideas about energy healing really resonate with me, but yet, when I tried them I didn’t get the results that others were getting, therefore I cannot and will not say that anyone modality is the end-all, be-all. (Please consult your own health care provider to find out what is best for you.)

I will explain to you my understanding and my practices, but I know from trial and error that what works for me may or may not work for you…
