Holistic Healing – Energy & Power

When creating the services and events at Unity of Lake Orion, my thoughts are open to the whole connectedness which we have to each other and all creation.
When I go into prayer for healing, I am using that same whole interconnectedness and holistic approach. Meaning I see you in God, God in you, as well as our interconnectedness with the earth, the heavens, and the energy I know as God, overseeing all of this.
In living life holistically people use prayer, meditation, healing touch, reiki sessions, touch for health, massage therapy, chiropractic, essential oils and more to awaken the innate healing energies of their body.
Throughout time, people have successfully used the power of prayer to guide them in their search for health. Perhaps it is because the innate sense in the body knows to look internally for answers. The Fillmores, co-founders of Unity, discovered that and they began teaching others what they found.
Unity did not begin as a church but as prayer and healing circles which became popular rapidly. Unity was created to be a school, not a church, and their 100-year-old teachings amaze me. It is through these teachings that you can better understand life and how your existence connects to the universe.
What is life? As spiritual beings having a human experience, we are the existence of God our creator in physical form. That’s what life is all about and that is a pretty powerful knowing! Now that you know everything is connected, you can see why it is so important to take care of your body to the best of your abilities.
Think of your body as your temple — your church. How you take care of your body is how you give back to God. Unity teaches you about your God connection but will never tell you that you are living life wrong. There is no wrong; how you live is just what you do, and that is between you and God.
Holistically, the conscious choice to connect with God and spend time being grateful feeds your mind and expands your spirit. When you are together with others it is fun to share and learn while celebrating how good knowing God is. Wherever you decide to worship and recognize His presence is also between you and God. I have known some very spiritual people who connect with God while doing their gardening. Others might find their God connection on the ski hill or when creating a piece of art or playing music.
This happens because the entire creation is so vast and there is no place in it where God is not.
Whenever and wherever we connect with Oneness expands our consciousness and opens our minds to the healing powers that are within.
There are many stories of people who have been struggling to get well and once they practice this expanded consciousness will be aligned with the right doctor that helps them improve their wellness.
During an energy session, the facilitator holds the receiving person in prayer and affirms the divine light and presence of God within them. Most energy facilitators are trained in one or more modalities and they are wonderful at hearing your story.
Sometimes you just need someone to hear your story and a great healing unfolds. Other times knowing someone has heard you and is holding you in prayer creates an opening for you to let go of the story, and you feel better.
The facilitator in energy work is simply facilitating: always holding you in prayer and affirming divine good for you. All the facilitators I have met began their work because they understood the principle that We are a part of the “whole.” In holistic healing, the intention is to add to your doctor’s program, not replace it.
When we gather at church together, we always affirm the good in each other. We acknowledge that all of you, like us, were created in God’s image of energy and we are “spirit, mind and body.” The Christ within each of us, when called upon, opens our conscious mind to the awareness of what is good for us. It encourages patience, faith, love, joy, abundance and more. It is a guiding light always helping you achieve your highest good. Being only positive, it hurts no one and supports your body temple for living a better life.
I believe it’s knowing the conscious connection to God and being in the midst of all His creation that seems to free and heal us.
Matthew 18: 19 & 20 (NAS) – “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.
Learn more about holistic living from individual vendors at our Health & Spirituality Holistic Festival on Saturday May 4th from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.. This is an all-day open house event, stay as long or as little as you like. It’s up to you to do the healing work on your spiritual self and see your medical doctor for your physical body.
Affirming through prayer that love, healing, hope and abundance fills your life!
See you soon, many blessings,
