As a young adult, I learned that the palms of my hands heat up with energy. Since first discovering that I was able to send energy out of the palms of my hands and into myself or others, I just naturally thought that everybody had this ability. I wanted to know more about how to use this energy coming out of my hands to help people. As a result, I began to explore books that might help me to understand how this energy healing stuff works. Discovering that you’re born with the ability to make healing energy flow out of you and into others doesn’t necessarily mean you receive an instruction manual to go along with this ability. If you were also born with hard-headedness as I was, the “How To” on how to make this energy ability thing work does not come any easier than the discovery that you actually have the ability did. So, the hard-headed thing to do, in my mind, of course, is to go book shopping and study how this whole energy healing thing works. As a result, I now have a small collection of books on energy healing.
One of my favorite books in my collection is called Energy Medicine, Balancing Your Body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy and Vitality, by Donna Eden. One of the ways I could relate to Donna was that she had the ability to actually see/perceive people’s energy and emotions flowing in and around their body and their chakra system, and she just naturally thought that everyone could see this. As a young adult, Donna had the epiphany that NOT everyone could see what she could see. She realized that a course to help people work with energy the way she does might be useful.
This led to her becoming a teacher of energy work and energy healing, teaching people about the chakra system, the aura, the emotions attached, and the meridian points in our energy fields. Due to the extent of detailed information she has taught over 100,000 people worldwide for almost 4 decades regarding how our body works as an energy system, Ms. Eden has often been referred to as the mother of energy work. The modality she’s shared with the world is called Eden Energy Medicine. Donna uses her book as a textbook to teach a person how to work with the things mentioned above. She has taught both laypeople and professionals how to understand the body as an energy system.
Two of the main subjects that are explained in Donna’s work are the chakra system and the meridian system. The book explains that the meridian system is linked to every organ of the body. She teaches how to test the meridians, and how to reset an imbalanced meridian. Really, I can’t begin to do more than just touch on the wealth of knowledge to be gained through Donna’s years of experience, knowledge, and wisdom.
Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) has an extensive website, which is available for anyone to explore. I am grateful for the fact that you don’t have to be certified as a EEM practitioner to be able to look up specific health issues on the EEM website in order to search out solutions. I have been able to find helpful resources on Donna’s website numerous times, from acupressure points to exercises that are designed to affect a meridian or to move energy in a specific manner. This guidance has helped me or others get relief from an immediate health issue countless time. I even found what I needed to help a lady assist her elderly dog to awaken from a coma once, through massaging pressure points in the pads of the dog’s feet.
If I have a favorite acupressure point, it would be what Donna refers to in her book as the “Wellspring of Life”. The Wellspring of Life relates to the kidney meridian, at the bottom of the feet, below the ball of the foot, and in the soft area under the arch. I used that spot for my elderly mother after a stroke, a seizure, and when she was mentally sluggish. My mother left us eventually, but at least she still had a sharp mind. Donna tells a story in her book of a doctor who used this method to stop a man from dying in the emergency room from shock.
One of my favorite testimonies is that I was able to assist my sister with relief from such extreme sciatic and lower back pain that the pain almost sent her to the emergency room after two days of suffering. In just a matter of a few hours, and a few repeated cycles of holding specific acupressure points for her, the pain decreased. My sister noticed relief as I sat holding the acupressure points for her. By morning, her back was sore, and she was exhausted from the intensity of the constant pain, but she had experienced great relief, didn’t need the emergency room, and needed no more treatments. Improvement continued on it’s own, and she has not had another sciatica crisis since. I’m not a professional at this. I studied the book, and was able to help my sister.
I will say that I do have certifications in some energy healing modalities, but not this one, not yet. That doesn’t preclude me from recommending to you that Eden Energy Medicine can be a gateway for you to find relief from pain or various other ailments without having to go to the doctor and take pain medication. In my mind, Eden Energy Medicine can be the foundation for anyone who is open to exploring all of the wisdom contained therein and as a result is one of the most important things CCHC could offer its patients, clients, or any interested party.
