Facebook Conversations

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Facebook. Too much time perhaps, so I have decided to pull in a little bit, and write here more often instead. I’m not saying Facebook time isn’t valuable, in fact I find it a really good way to reach out to people and to have interesting conversations, such as the one I’m about to share with you here. But here’s the thing – facebook is a river, flowing, and there’s always more. Some days I feel like I can swim all day, other days I’m tired and need to recover my energy so that I can swim again another day.  Yet I keep going back to it without taking a break, so I’m changing how I spend my online time... let’s see how long it lasts!

I’m offering webinar classes at the end of this month, in one week in fact, teaching people how to heal themselves with energy healing. They’re low priced at $15, yet there has not been as big an uptake on them as I’d expected. I admit it, I was disappointed. Obviously it’s something I’m doing, or not doing. I was wondering if it was because I know why my work is so good for people without really explaining it well enough. To test this theory out I thought I’d ask the good folks on my page this question : “What are the benefits of Energy Healing?” to see if people really understood what they were.

I got a humdinger of an answer – here it is (reproduced with the generous permission of the poster!)

Oooh I'm gonna get some stick now, but here's my two pence worth...
Energy Healing is really misnamed. There's no measurable energy being 'produced', and no-one has demonstrably proven that you can 'send Energy' to someone any more than you can wish a tree to fall over. No, what Energy Healing should properly be called is KINDNESS SHARING.
A session with someone who provides a safe, calm space and demonstrably shares Kindness does absolute wonders for those who need it - and in truth that means most of us.
Kindness and Calmness give us a chance to take a breath from the constant stress of modern living where our bodies actually react to a phone ringing in the same way as our ancestors reacted to a sabre tooth tiger's roar. With everything everything from text messages to traffic lights causing Flight or Fight reactions at a primal level, we are much more in need of Kindness Sharing than 'Energy Healing'. The ability to give Kindness is much more of a gift, and much more properly deserving of acceptance, than mixing up pseudo-scientific jargon with a term of hope, and calling it "Energy Healing."
Kindness Sharing is a much more appropriate term, in my opinion, and is of much more importance in today's society than talk of Energy and Energy Alignment etc.
It's interesting to note that in societies where Kindness and Empathy is a societal norm, there is a complete lack of need for Energy Alignment and Energy Healing.
Kindness works, both for the receiver and the giver.
Pity we don't all practice it more often...

Wow. What a response!! And a beautiful one at that. Here is my reply:

"There's no measurable energy being 'produced'" You're right, it's being transformed, not produced, as energy cannot be destroyed or created, Law of Thermodynamics.
"no-one has demonstrably proven that you can 'send Energy' to someone any more than you can wish a tree to fall over." You're also right, however when you put two dynamo's together, the stronger one influences the weaker one, this is entrainment. Energy healing works like this, and science just can't measure that yet. The closest they have to explaining it is entanglement theory, which, they don't quite understand as yet either.
"what Energy Healing should properly be called is KINDNESS SHARING." - I like this idea!
"A session with someone who provides a safe, calm space and demonstrably shares Kindness does absolute wonders for those who need it - and in truth that means most of us." Yes I agree too, and I also agree that someone giving permission to heal invokes a natural healing process.
"we are much more in need of Kindness Sharing than 'Energy Healing'" ... Energy healing brings people closer to a space of kindness, and once people are kinder to themselves, they can see the other person more clearly, allowing them to be more kind. So I think both can happen in parallel.
"The ability to give Kindness is much more of a gift, and much more properly deserving of acceptance, than mixing up pseudo-scientific jargon with a term of hope, and calling it "Energy Healing." ... Science can't measure what is actually happening yet so Science is not the place to go for proof that Energy healing works. Now that they have developed equipment that can see the inside of an atom, they "know" what happens at a molecular level. Before the equipment was developed, did an atom still work the same way?
"Kindness works, both for the receiver and the giver. Pity we don't all practice it more often..." I also agree with this point too!

I like it when people think things out, ask questions and probe. Because I know what I do is of value, and I know that most people are still learning about it. Heck, we are all still learning about it – as Pamela Miles infers, we do not know unequivocally how Energy Healing works. So we need to talk about it. And what better medium to use, than Facebook?!

  1. I hear you on the Facebook situation Abby.
    I have a very strong desire to take a break as I need to get more writing done on my blog and for my book. And Facebook takes up so much time. At the same time I don't want to let people down as I've been posting daily for about 2 years. I will have to have a break from it soon - I can feel it!

    And as for the humdinger comment and your response - I enjoyed them both! :)
    Thanks for sharing. Much Love, Bets xx

  2. Thank you Bets, It's so good to get feedback. And I'm feeling more creative thinking about what I can write in the blog, that won't get lost through the sands of time.

    Something that just came up was that someone on the page thought the webinar was $100!! I would never charge that much for a half hour class.... so hopefully by my emphasising the price and the value of the class a bit more, it will shift something in the outthere sphere... (is that a word?!)
    Namaste
