BODY ENERGIES EXERCISE
The self-knowledge of the healer is assisted in another way—through the learning of the body energies. In the process of self-knowledge, it is beneficial to learn the nature of the energies of the body, for this learning will assist in learning the energies and nature of the spirit. There is an exercise you may do that may assist in this, and will also add to your energy-directing abilities, which will contribute to your healing ability and your ability to effectively perform the Chios Healing Attunements:
Become attuned to your own body and the energy by the practice of drawing the energy through it. Stand by yourself and visualize the symbols to call in the energy, as you would do when beginning a healing treatment. Then, knowing that the energy follows your thought and intention, through your intention and will, direct the energy to specific areas of your own body. Draw the energy, for example, in a localized flow from the earth to one or both knees, maintaining the energy there, noting the difference between where the energy is and where it is not present. Draw the energy up further, as it flows from the earth, up one or both legs and into the shoulder area, maintaining it in that place and continuing to be aware of the difference in feeling between where the energy is and where it is not present.
This exercise can be continued for between 3 and 15 minutes, using all different locations in your body as locations for the energy, using a localized flow to specific body points, and holding the energy there, being aware all the while of the difference between where the energy is and where it is not present. This exercise will bring a greater awareness of the nature of the energy, from its ground in the body to its spiritual essence, and will open you to know it and become transparent to it. It is also good preparation for learning to direct the energy in your patients, which is used in treatment of some diseases, and in practicing the attunement procedures.
