Quite often I get asked questions about my work and what I do exactly as an Energetic Healer. Unless you have a couple of hours, I find it really hard to explain with just a few words… However, that is not deterring me from trying!
The human energy field has never been seriously considered by mainstream science and traditional Western Medicine, however, it has a paramount role in Chinese and Indian Medicine. So why in the Western society do we relegate energy to “alternative medicine?”
I believe that the concepts associated with energy are more complex to explain, as they seem to distance themselves from the cause-effect-remedy paradigm that has guided our general medical practice principles. These concepts involve a qualitative definition. Most often there is an overlap of meanings attached to energetic concepts. Beliefs, morals, judgment and comparison are part of our humanity and we apply those to everything that we come in contact with.
Countless times I have heard that in order to “make alternative therapies work, you have to believe in them” and while I recognise that a general curiosity, opening of the mind, and a sense of trust in these therapies does help, I also believe that our reality has a very defined construction that we might not be aware of.
I recently began further studies into the field of Vibrational Science and discovered a very grounded, easy to understand (trust me on this) language regarding energy that might make things simpler for a curious mind.
I also realised that my initial blog was way too long and too ‘intense’ for a casual reader so I decided to divide it into three parts. The first part that you are about to read revolves around the concepts of energy and vibrations. The second part emphasises resonance and our sense process. The third part will focus on consciousness and awareness. I hope you enjoy my discoveries…
It is hard to define what exactly energy is from a scientific point of view. We can identify its components, be it kinetic or thermic, as well as the effects that a particular energy has on our reality, but the true essence of energy is still a mystery.
The word energy derives from the Greek word energeia that can be translated as activity or operation. Following the Greek tradition, energy was a qualitative concept that included factors such as happiness and pleasure. In modern physics, energy is a quantitative measurement, and is intended as the quantitative property that must be transferred to an object in order to perform work on, or to heat, the object.
Modern physics has also established that the total amount of energy of an isolated system remains constant, so it conserves over time. According to modern science, the entire universe was “created” by a single energetic event also known as the Big Bang.
If we consider the Universe as an isolated system, it means that it has conserved its initial energy overtime.
According to the Big Bang Theory, the Universe has also “evolved” into galaxies, stars and planets, all very different but all carrying a part of that initial energy. Our own planet has changed over time, producing a myriad of life forms including human beings, so we all still carry a fraction of that Universal energy.
Looking at facts and theories with these lenses it might be less obscure by saying: Everything is energy.

If you are still following my thought process and you are ready to continue onto the next step, let me show you how the concepts of energy and vibrations are connected.
I found that the easiest way to understand this is to think about a very common element on the planet, such as water. Molecules of hydrogen and oxygen make up water’s particles.
When the water is in its solid state (ice), these particles are moving at a defined measurable speed. When we raise the temperature (inject energy into the system) and the water becomes liquid, the speed of its particles also increases.
By bringing the water to the boiling point (100 degrees Celsius) it changes its form from liquid to gas and the particles increase their speed even more. Water hasn’t changed its composition moving from solid to liquid, only the movements of the particles have increased their speed.
We can apply the same analogy to everything else. Matter, the densest form of energy in the Universe, is nothing else but molecules of atoms moving at various speeds. This speed is measured through frequency, which then determines its vibration.
In accordance with the two principles explained above, everything is energy. Everything vibrates at different speeds, so a way to “measure” energy is to identify its vibrations.
Vibrations can be described as perceived and measurable ‘waves’ emanating from an object: it is a mechanical phenomenon where oscillations occur around an equilibrium point. A classic example is a sound vibration coming from a musical instrument. Its quality is measured on the commonly-known musical scale while its intensity is measured in decibels.
Around 510 B.C a Greek philosopher and scientist, Pythagoras, established a connection between the length of cord of a musical instrument and the quality of the sound coming from it, creating basic correlations between a numerical measurement (length) and a qualitative measurement (note). This scientific approach has evolved throughout history finding links between, length, sounds, colours, angles, sense of taste and sense of smell. All of these studies and experiments have created the body of work referred to as the Physics of Quality.
If everything in the Universe is energy, the quality of this energy is then measureable using a comparative scale. The precise quality of the energy (balancing, energising, sedating, etc..,) can then be determined and the precise effects can be produced utilising the concept of energy resonance.
This brings us to the end of the first part of a detailed blog that I have written with the intention of explaining concepts such energy, vibration and resonance and ultimately, how energetic healing works. I have always had a curious mind. I love science and yet, I am working in a field that most people consider to be nothing more than magic and superstition. Hopefully, I have been able to offer some clarity into these concepts and I look forward to sharing the rest of my blog with you.
