Energy healing works by changing the signature of the energy around injured tissue. I’ve always used fluid energy to do this, and I think most healers do the same. But last week, I learned a new technique that’s making me abandon energy.
First, what is energy? Most simply, it’s a thing you can build in your body and send to someone else. I think of it like a hot liquid, flowing along magickal pathways, and heating whatever it touches. (This is a metaphoric heat, mind you. It won’t register on a thermometer, but it can make you feel tingly.)
Energy is a means to an end. My goal is never to build lots of energy and feel lots of tingles. My goal is to promote healing, which means the energy’s job is to shift the signature of the injured tissue. (Signature = The type of energy = The type of “heat” = The magickal state of the tissue.)
The problem is, energy isn’t great for that job. The tissue doesn’t simply adopt the energy’s signature — the signatures mix over time, so at any given time, the tissue’s signature is somewhere between its old signature and the energy’s signature. This mixing can take minutes or hours, and the signature shifts throughout that time. And sometimes, the energy won’t permeate properly, and the structure will reject the signature.
In all, it’s slow and imprecise in several ways. But it was the only tool I had, so I put up with it.
Then last week, I got training in fundamental skills for physical and mental effects. (I’ll simply call this “effects,” and this first technique is level 1 effects.) It solves all these problems.
Here’s the basic technique: You connect to the magickal structure you want to affect. (The structure whose signature you want to change.) You make a network of tiny connections all throughout the structure, so every bit of the structure has a connection close to it. Then, you activate that network in the new signature.
If you did it right, the structure will instantly flip to the new signature. Not some mixture of signatures, it just jumps to the new one, in less time than it takes me to check what signature the structure is in. I think it’s because the network has already permeated all the nooks and crannies of the structure, though that’s just my best guess. All I know is, I’ve been using it, and it works.
(For energy healing, I’ll then apply a slow drip of energy to keep everything at the signature I just set. Not sure if it’s needed, and I did a mental effect on myself last night that worked well without the energy drip, but I don’t want to skip a step that might be necessary when working with others.)
A note on activating the network in the new signature: At first, I thought about building energy and sending it throughout the network. This doesn’t work — it’s the same as building energy without the network, and has all the same problems. Instead, I had to think about turning on a different signature within the network, and having the network “heat up,” similar to how energy “contains heat.” (Quotes = Metaphoric language.) At least, that’s what works for me.
Really, this seems another way to distribute this magickal activation we’re calling “heat,” so you distribute it through an already-established network rather than through a heated fluid. Which makes me wonder what other, even better ways to distribute that heat we’ll discover in the future.If you liked this post, consider visiting my current blog at mikesententia.com.

So, this is like attaching a ‘splint’ or cast to the injured area and then having it attuned to the healthy signature by triggering it with a squirt of energy?
Seems like we have taken a step back from “doing it the hard way to learn how it ‘does what it does'” and gone back to letting a ‘system’ do the job for us.
I mean, if it is the BEST means to get the job done then, sure. But does it help to explain how letting a system/structure ‘do’ the work explain what it’s doing?
Or did I totally miss the point here?
Hi Kol, sorry, I don’t think that analogy really works, but I’m glad to see you wrestling with these advanced techniques.
When you heal, you work on the magickal structures that are already connected to the body’s tissues. You shift that structure’s signature to influence how that tissue behaves. In previous techniques, I would shift the signature by applying energy over a time. But now, I’m using this technique instead, which shifts the signature more quickly and precisely. In other words, this technique replaces one step of the full healing approach I’ve discussed before.
Then, whether you use this new technique or the old energy-over-time method, you need to apply a steady drip of energy to stabilize the changes you just made to the structure’s signature while the cells respond to the healing.
I think the “network” analogy is confusing you a bit. This is just a network of connections that I created. I can see how the analogy sounds kind of similar to ethereal software, but they’re totally unrelated. When I do this technique, I’m the one setting up the network of connections, and there’s no ethereal software involved.
Does that help?
Sooooo…. you are ‘accupuncturing’ the area with connections which are then ‘activated’ with the proper signature. okay.. that makes more sense. Thanks
So, instead of using your old way of changing a signature, you take advantage of an apparent signature homeostasis-like mechanism, you developed the mechanism or were more like a finding?
Also, the network is made by sensory connections through the physical gateway (tissues deeper energy layer), isn’t it?
No, these are not sensory connections. The whole point of sensory connections is to NOT change the structure you’re connecting to. The whole point of these connections is to change the structure’s signature. They’re basically the opposite of sensory connections.
On going through physical gateway: You could use this technique on any structure, I expect. I have only done it on the energy and state layers so far, though. Everything gets harder to work with the deeper you go.
And I’m sorry, but I’m not sure what you’re asking with your first paragraph. Sorry.
Does that help?
This sounds like radionics. Were you try to change the rates of a injured area into a healed rate.
I think a lot of healing tries to change the rate of growth of injured tissues. So, at a high level, most healing probably sounds like most other healing, I suppose.
Not as rate as in growth. I mean the numerical rate that you turn the dials on a radionic machine. This works as a numeric signature or sigil that repersents the tissue as opposed to a healthy one.
This is the most wonderful thing I have read today. You know how I feel about magick for service to humanity instead of magick for tingly feelings (which is cool too). I like you again.
Tell me, is this most effective if the individual uses her own energy, or does one have to come to the magician-healer? Doesn’t the personal signature best support one’s own healing?
Thank you. I’m glad you’re enjoying my writing again.
Good question. I’ll need a whole post to reply, though. Friday, maybe?
