What it Takes to Bring Energy Healing to Everyone

You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit mikesententia.com.

A friend wants to make energy healing available for everyone, not just the well-to-do. That’s a great goal, and I’m totally on board. But what would that take?

Some numbers: Let’s say one energy healer can see 6 people a day, 7 days a week. That’s ambitious but not crazy, which will be a theme for this post. That’s 42 people a week, or about 2,000 people per year, one session per person.

There are 7 billion people alive right now. 7,000,000,000 / 2,000 = 3,500,000, or 3.5 million healers.

The US has 300 million people. 300,000,000 / 2,000 = 150,000 healers in the US.

Those numbers are intimidating. They certainly were for my friend. Years ago, when I first started thinking about building energy healing into a science, those numbers intimidated me too. But having those numbers lets you plan, it makes the difference between a daydream and a goal.

A few takeaways:

  • That’s much larger than a single company. If we want energy healing to be available to everyone, we need an entire industry, including trade schools. Currently, our competition isn’t the other companies or healing systems, our competition is market penetration (fewer than 1% of Americans use biofield healing).
  • Energy healing either needs to be easy to learn (think Reiki), or a high-skill, highly-paid profession (like doctors and nurses.) I want to build the second, which means published studies to build credibility and connect energy healing with medicine.
  • Helping the currently-existing healers offer lower-cost sessions won’t help. That might let them help different people, but it wouldn’t let you help more people. We simply don’t have enough healers right now.
  • How do we get more healers? Create jobs. Currently, if you want to offer healing sessions, you also have to market yourself and network for clients. If healers could instead join a company, be assigned healing cases, and have a marketing team to bring in clients, healing would be a safer, easier career to succeed in, which means more healers.

Of course this would be easier. This means reaching a kind of standard and building knowledge for those who want to represent the healing service just like it has been done in other fields in order to sustain a somewhat minimum quality level.
To create a somewhat corporate identity that people agree to follow.
Maybe there is a better word for corporate identity. I don’t know.
And to tell people what it can do and what it don’t (yet anyway) .

Anyhow standing to the truth is one of the things I consider most important on the long run.

A potential alternative (or complimentary) route: give everyone the possibility of healing themselves? I’m reminded of “Fotamecus”, the time compression/expansion sigil that escalated to servitor status and pretty much works for anyone. In your language and and approach, could a group of people not create a more generalised, abstracted piece of “ethereal software” that could be called upon simply?

I’ve been giving people a very abstract exercise to do to resolve situations (without telling them “how it works”, although there is a structured model behind it), which has given good outcomes in both health and “life” areas. It’s changed my mind a little regarding these things. I think now that, ideally, I’d like to see “the return of English magic” (to quote Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell) to normal people. After all, it’s something they are unwittingly doing every day, anyway. I think this is something that could be done.

Maybe a three-pronged approach, then:

* A corporate/registration setup for those who would sell their hearing services of a particular type.
* Education efforts to establish a modern version of the neglected metaphysics which backs this stuff.
* Some form of group endeavour to increased accessibility for the everyday man.

I feel that no single one of these would succeed to any great extent without the support of the others.

Surely there’s a place for easy and ‘advanced’ healing? A lot of what’s wrong with people doesn’t necessarily require the high skill\high paid model you are fond of. And being easy to learn doesn’t mean it would not be credible or have published studies. I would have thought your work with ‘ethereal software’ should highlight exactly how there could be easy to learn but credible.

The traditional model was for there to be a healer in every village. They would deal with every day cases and only defer to the master shaman/healer in the province on a difficult case.

I would have thought a more scientific update of something like that would be more effective. Whilst there’s plenty wrong with the current ‘alternative medicine’ field (that label being one of the things!) I tend to think one of the things its got right is the idea that not everyone needs to be the master healer. There is room (and a need for) ‘lay’ healers.

I like the direction of your thinking, all three of you.

I think there’s a place for three types of healing:

First, DIY-type, where you look at a sigil and ethereal software automatically connects to you and does a command. This is the equivalent of aspirin: A simple, less powerful but safer healing. Perhaps this is monetized by a subscription to the sigil, which changes monthly, or perhaps this is just free, part of marketing for the more complex healings.

Second, known healing techniques that require monitoring and adjustment. These are the more powerful techniques, already developed and tested, but with the potential for side effects. Think of this as prescription medication, requiring careful monitoring to ensure it’s safe. For example: https://magickofthought.com/2015/05/side-effects-from-biofield-healing-yes-it-happens/

That second category would be sold like consulting. It scales well, because the healers just need a few months or years of training to do the healings, so this would probably be the primary income for a healing company. These are the healing jobs.

Third, healing research, developing new techniques that, once they’re tested and debugged, get sold in that second category. By definition, these techniques don’t exist yet, so they aren’t known by any ethereal software. So the healer has to understand the condition, understand the biofield, and develop the healing themselves. This could be monetized too, sold as specialized services to the very wealthy.

So, three levels: DIY, healer, and researcher. That’s the vision. And like in medicine, we need a relatively small number of researchers, but a tremendous number of practitioners delivering the techniques.
