Healing begets a transformational process of cleansing, releasing, harmonizing and integrating all that was facilitated during a healing session. All forms of energy therapies introduce pure vital force energy into energy systems, cellular consciousness and soul consciousness effecting profound shifts and changes at many levels: body, mind, spirit and soul. Just like with traditional therapies and medicine, natural energy therapies can and often do induce a healing crisis. I know that I received deep healing if I experience a healing crisis after a session.
The healing crisis, also known as a Herxheimer Reaction, occurs when the body goes through its natural detoxification process at an accelerated rate. When old energy is cleared and new energy is introduced into the biological and energy systems it can stimulate an accelerated clearing and cleansing process faster than the body is used to. A detoxification process is underway inducing a multitude of symptoms as the body organically eliminates what it no longer needs clearing the pathways for new vital force energy to be received.
The more deeply rooted your issues are the more severe your healing crisis may be. It is not uncommon after an energy healing or shamanic session to feel temporarily worse. Sometimes people conclude the treatment didn't work, or even made things worse; BUT these reactions are actually signs that the treatment DID work at core levels and that your body is in fact going through a significant transformational process. Transformation by definition is the process of dramatic change and metamorphosis. The old is leaving, paving the way for the new to be created. Your recalibration process can be mild to severe depending on the issues addressed during your session.
The healing crisis can occur immediately, within several days, or even several weeks after a treatment and can last anywhere from a few hours to several weeks. Symptoms of a healing crisis are vast and varied; however, some of the most common are: fatigue, restlessness, headache, insomnia, irritability, nausea, digestive issues, sinus congestion, cold-flu symptoms, menses, skin eruptions, heightened emotions such as anger, despair, sadness, fear, etc. The best advice I can offer for your consideration if you experience a healing crisis is to do what I do: I surrender to the process knowing that I'm experiencing a profound recalibration process integrating fresh, new energy to raise my vibration. Whenever you clear out distortion in the body, you allow more Light to circulate through you enabling you to life a healthier, optimistic and peaceful life.
