Energy Healing: A Short Guide

Throughout history, a healer has been known as someone who facilities healing in another. From Native American medicine men and women to ancient shamans, they all offered an amazing talent to heal suffering by tapping into and empowering one’s own healing capacity.

Most shamans have dreams or visions that tell them certain things as a healer. The shaman may have or acquire many spirit guides in the spirit world who are always present within them or only present when they are in a trance. The energy healer, in the form of a shaman, heals within the spiritual dimension by returning ‘lost’ parts of the human soul from wherever they have gone. The shaman also cleanses excess negative energies that can confuse or pollute the soul.

Present-day energy healers contribute the same value. They are naturally gifted and usually called to this area of study by a profound life event. Then many seek further training through LifeForce Energy Healing® courses, so they can help their friends and family or help thousands find relief from emotional and physical pain.

Energy healing therapy is a powerful approach to wellness that can revolutionize any life. Behind the scenes of our beautiful world, an unfathomably complex network of energy fuels and connects everyone and everything. By learning to understand and apply this energy as medicine, we can powerfully steer our lives in better and better directions, healing what ails us and encouraging our vast personal potential for health, happiness, and meaning.

Energy Healing History

What Conditions Can Be Treated


Your body is the ultimate superhighway of energy currents. Scholars throughout history have understood the invisible flow which courses through the body and has a profound impact upon its systems. Now, you can put this knowledge to use through energy healing therapy (Learn More):

  • Treat serious ailments like cancers and chronic conditions.
  • Repair old muscular or skeletal injuries.
  • Restore balance to the basic systems of the body like digestion and circulation.
  • Promote overall wellness and immunity.


Your mind is literally a processor of energy. Tiny electrical impulses transmit information across neurons and form the basis for thoughts. By addressing beliefs and mental patterns from an energetic perspective, you can liberate yourself from resistance and live each day with clarity and purpose. That is the essence of energy healing therapy.

  • Release internal roadblocks and believe you can achieve any goal.
  • Develop a “success” mentality that steers you to abundance.
  • Let go of old feelings of guilt and regret that hold you back.
  • Conquer fears and build confidence from the inside out.


Your emotions are not random, nor merely reactive to your environment. They are also guided by the flow of energy through your body, specifically the energy centers known as chakras. Clearing these pathways will lead to happy, productive days and a warm, open heart.

  • Ease the pain of depression and find the joy in everyday life.
  • Release anxiety and replace it with calm and confidence.
  • Soothe anger at its root and lean towards compassion and understanding.
  • Relieve long-held sadness with a wise and gentle view of life.


As you harness the power of energy medicine to feel stronger, clearer, and more joyful, you will continue to embark upon your ever-deepening spiritual journey, opening the door to new plateaus of understanding the nature of the cosmos and the unseen world.

  • Give life a deep and unshakable sense of purpose and meaning.
  • Encourage your natural intuition and let it always guide you in good directions.
  • Gain new insight into life’s most profound questions.
  • Harness your unseen connections to all of the people in your life

The Power to Heal

The power to heal is very real and has been observed by many cultures over thousands of years. Today, it is an exciting field of study allowing people to expand their awareness, to access the powerful invisible life force, and to serve as an energy healer. An energy healer or healing practitioner reminds us that we are not powerless victims, but are fully able to create the lives we want to live.

Some of the greatest well-known healers attract a host of visitors and thousands of help-seekers monthly. They work hard, perfect their skills with exercise, and dedicate their lives to be an energy healer.

What It Takes to Become an Energy Healer

Very different experiences can drive people to learn more about energy healing and decide to become an energy healer. Profound words, keen awareness or a personal healing experience can all contribute.

There can also be differences in one’s goals. Some people, for instance, can be interested in becoming an energy healer as a benefit to their family and friends, while others may want to be a professional energy healer. We suggest that you identify which path is right for you, which skills you would like to learn and which energy healing courses that you would like to pursue. Here are some areas to consider as you make your decision:

  • Acting in the capacity of an energy healer as a professional entails learning a lot more than simply how to practice a healing modality. It involves communicating, defining and maintaining professional boundaries, creating a place to do your work, learning the legalities involved, and more.
  • An energy healer has the ability to see the person as a whole greater than the sum of their parts and beyond their physical body.
  • How an energy healer approaches their job can vary. Most, however, can see the blocks that are causing the problems in the lives of their clients. The blocks can be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. Through a combination of talking, awareness-building and the use of actual healing techniques, the energy healer heals.

Medicine People and Shamans

The primary function of medicine men and women is to secure the help of the spirit world for the benefit of the entire community. Sometimes the help they provided would heal disease, heal the psyche, or bring greater harmony between human groups or between humans and nature.

Shamans also serve as intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. They treat ailments/illness by mending the soul and restoring the physical body of an individual to more balance and wholeness. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment.

Most shamans have dreams or visions that tell them certain things as a healer. The shaman may have or acquire many spirit guides in the spirit world who are always present within them or only present when they are in a trance. The energy healer, in the form of a shaman, heals within the spiritual dimension by returning ‘lost’ parts of the human soul from wherever they have gone. The shaman also cleanses excess negative energies that can confuse or pollute the soul.

Seven Chakras

The Importance of the Seven Chakras

With our extensive work in the field of the seven major chakras, we have learned that people have at least a couple of chakras dysfunctional unless they have done a tremendous amount of personal work, meditation or journaling.

Each chakra represents an aspect of higher consciousness that is essential to a person’s life. As a system, the seven chakras integrate a person’s mind, body and spirit; and each has a physical, emotional, creative, and celestial component. At a basic level, a person’s emotional and physical health is directly dependent on well-functioning chakras.

Chakra Balancing

Any distortion in a person’s chakra balancing can sooner or later negatively impact them physically. Likewise, if they make a correction to their chakra balancing, a corresponding change will be present in their body. It’s that simple. Whenever we block an experience because it was unpleasant or emotional, we also block the corresponding positive emotion that we gain by a well-functioning chakra. It may get clogged with stagnant energy and spin irregularly or in the wrong direction.

When our chakras become distorted it usually means we are creating a reality that we believe to be valid, but in actuality is something we have indeed fabricated from our earlier experiences. These lies and the act of being dishonest with ourselves can minimize us and take away our positive energy—the outcome, many times, can lead to diminished health. That’s because we send out a distorted vision of the world and the world gives us exactly what we’re projecting.

The Deborah King Center believes that it is possible to live life more fully—despite the past—by opening ourselves to the powerful energy field where we can affect our own profound healing experiences. For instance, when our heart chakra is closed to minimize pain, we can become a catalyst for a slew of unhealthy relationships as well as heart, breast and lung conditions. And when we detach from who we are and what we feel, our solar plexus chakra can be harmed and we can set ourselves up for painful stomach ailments, gastric reflux, even diabetes. See the Truth Heals Chakra Chart for more.

Recharge Your Chakras

Energy healing is the vehicle that recharges chakras from being clogged with stagnate energy and from spinning irregularly or in the wrong direction. Ideally, your chakras should spin gently and consistently in an energy exchange and be similar in shape and size to one another.

If you are purposely tuning out your internal guidance for fear that it will overwhelm you in terms of changes that might be needed for your wellbeing, consider learning more about Deborah’s chakra balancing. Her weekly video show and workshops will give you life-changing information.

Third Eye Chakra

Chakra Healing: Activate Your Third Eye

All of us have an innate ability to be more trusting of ourselves and follow our intuition—and we can develop this ability through chakra healing. If you’re close-minded and thinking the negative is going to happen, you could benefit from learning how to open up and better activate your third eye otherwise known as your sixth chakra.

When our sixth chakra is in balance, we keep an open mind and seek the truth. We sense the interconnection of humankind and are more willing to look for guidance within ourselves and at our psychic experiences. When our 6th chakra isn’t balanced, however, we struggle with the lack of creativity and feel cut off from our intuition or feel totally unable to trust what we see about ourselves and our surroundings. Eye problems, sinus problems, headaches, or poor memory can also indicate the need for third eye or sixth chakra healing.

Develop Your Innate Capacity

Each of the chakra centers in the human energy system is important because each one allows us to pull from different skills and strengths and live more harmoniously. Through the awakening of our sixth chakra center, we can learn to trust ourselves, and in turn trust in our own humanity on this earth. We are able to move beyond our normal five senses for increased seeing, feeling, and hearing.

Why not allow yourself to develop this innate capacity?

Within this chakra center, we can project images of life and past memories that speak to the depth of who we were and who we have become. Having this skill, through chakra healing, allows us to visualize and actually help influence desired outcomes of upcoming events, which is powerful.

Yes, the energy behind the sixth chakra is indeed very powerful. Nurture it by adding art and nature to your physical space and daily routine. Look for ways to expand your imagination and try to be more creative. By tapping into your dreams and pondering what they mean, you can also align your new sense of self. And finally, approach life with an open mind. Know there are a hundred and one ways to live and be. Try a few alternatives on for size!

Top 3 Reasons to Try Energy Healing

What is energy healing? It is the practice of tapping into the universal energy field for information and then making small shifts in the individual’s personal energy field in order to help someone heal of mental, emotional, or physical distress. Because all three of the key aspects of humanity: mind, body, and spirit, are inextricably linked, when one part gets sick, the other two sides of that triangle also become unbalanced. Energy healing heals the whole person, acting through the personal energy field to get at problems under the surface of the body and the psyche.

Energy medicine saves lives. It saved mine, eradicating the cancer in my body when I was twenty five. As a master energy healer, I have worked with thousands of students who can attest to the fact that they were healed and/or saved with energy medicine. If you let it, energy healing can save your life, too, whether you need physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual healing.

If that isn’t reason enough to give energy healing a try, here are three more:

  1. Energy healing can heal almost anything.I have been an energy healer and spiritual teacher for decades now, and I know from experience that there are no limits to what energy healing can accomplish, provided it is in line with the soul’s life plan. Physical injuries and diseases, crippling emotional pain, completely closed-down chakras, all of these ailments and more have been healed with energy medicine. I have seen energy healing face some of the darkest sources of pain a human body can withstand and win, lifting the weight of that pain and providing relief for the patient.I even had a remission from cancer at the hands of an energy healer, which is what motivated me to begin learning about energy medicine. I became so amazed and enthralled by what I saw and learned that I ultimately left a thriving career as an attorney to devote my life to energy healing, helping people become the best versions of themselves and fulfilling their true life purpose.Now this is not to say that if you have a serious illness, like cancer, that you should ignore modern medicine. Quite the opposite! When you need healing, use all the resources you can, and that means energy medicine in concert with traditional medicine. Meditation and journaling are other helpful ways to reach your innermost desires and get in touch with your higher self to assist in making any decisions you have about your health.
  2. You are already a healer.Our ancestors were able to heal themselves and others without any special training because back then, humans were more regularly in touch with their higher selves and the unified field. Capabilities such as reading or sending thoughts between loved ones, being fully grounded in Mother Nature, and yes, energy healing, were not considered “supernatural” the way they are today. These skills and abilities were common and widespread in ancient humans, but have since been overshadowed and ignored in favor of technology and our fast-paced intellectual cultureDon’t worry—the capacity for energy healing still resides within you! Though the memories of how to access these “powers” have been buried, the information is still stored our collective unconscious. With practice and training, you can reawaken these innate abilities.Healing workshops can provide you with the training and instruction you need to get started in energy medicine, or improve your practice if you’ve already begun. An experienced energy healer can also double check that your own energy field is in proper shape to treat others.
  3. Energy healing boosts your spiritual development.Whether you are healed by an energy healer or heal yourself in the process of becoming an energy healer, your spiritual progress gets a lift. One of the most common stumbling blocks for seekers of the light is imbalances in their chakras caused by emotional trauma or unresolved emotions. These imbalances are called distortions, and a distorted chakra can wreak havoc on your energy field by blocking the flow of energy like a clogged pipe, even shutting it down completely. Both scenarios can result in physical pain and suffering that is a direct reflection of your emotional pain.Energy healing helps to clear those blocks from your chakras and restores your energy field to its optimal state of unrestricted flow. With your energy field in good shape, you can begin to expand your consciousness and reach higher states of awareness.One of the best things about a practice of energy healing is that it forces you to stay centered and grounded. You cannot heal others without a clear energy field, and a clear consciousness free from ego and fear, which means you must vigilantly maintain your own spiritual health. Meditation, expressing and releasing your emotions, and staying in tune with Mother Earth are all helpful in keeping yourself clear of negative energy.


The benefits of energy medicine are more than I can express with words, but I can say that a happier, healthier life, expanded consciousness, and being able to heal friends and loved ones are just the tip of the iceberg.
