I have recently decided to try Biofield tuning—a healing practice in which tuning forks are used to rearrange the energy within and surrounding the body and restore its healthy flow. Traumas and negative experiences or, more specifically, the emotions associated with them can be stored in the biofield for years. This stored pain can obstruct the healthy movement of the life force through the body. Some diseases are caused just by these blockages. Energetic healing practices like Reiki and Biofield Tuning work differently, but they accomplish the same thing—restoring the flow of energy a.k.a life force or “Chi” energy. I also like to think of this energy as love, but there are much more pragmatic explanations of what it is. You can read about it in Eileen Day McKusick’s Electric Body, Electric Health.
How I decided I need Biofield Tuning
I start my every morning with a Reiki practice, which is meant to dissolve any stagnant energy in the body. Reiki alone is able to provide the needed healing. However, I have learned that we need to be okay with asking for and receiving help from others. A popular belief that the spiritual growth is a one-person job is outdated. As a collective, we are meant to assist each other.
Recently, I had to revisit my past. As much as I believe this is not a healthy thing to do, it helped me realize that I might still be storing the emotions I was experiencing back then. Every time I talked or thought about a certain time in my life it hurt me so deeply, bringing up anxiety, stress, and even a minor depression. This was an indicator that I might not have let go of it as much as I thought I did. I felt that I had those blockages in my electric body.
For me, this was about forgiveness for my choices, especially with regards to my health and not daring to go after what I really wanted. When you do make a change and see what you could have made out of your life all along, you look back, and every minute you have spent living as your lesser self becomes so painful to acknowledge. I know it is wrong to judge yourself for not daring to dream big, settling and putting yourself in a box, because I simply did not know any better back then. But I felt that I needed help letting go of that judgment, making peace with whatever has or has not happened in my past, and releasing attachment to it, which was draining me.
Choosing a distance session
Biofield tuning is most often done in person, but is also effective over distance. I was only willing to do it with someone I know well and trust. A spiritual leader I have been following on Instagram for over 4 years has recently become certified in Biofield Tuning. Her name is Alyssa, and she offers distance sessions as well, which is convenient as we live on different sides of the ocean. Because my mother and aunt can access and influence me through Reiki over long distance, I knew that energetic practices work this way. Energy waves can travel all around the world. So I gave it a try.
At first I was doubting whether I should invest money into this at the moment. But then I remembered that nothing is more important than health and emotional well-being. Furthermore, I trusted my inner voice. This idea was suddenly so strongly imprinted in my mind. Over the years I have learned to identify and listen to such guidance coming from our true self. I signed up for a session. It was very easy and Alyssa was very helpful answering my questions. I told her what I wanted to work on and asked her if Biofield Tuning could facilitate my healing and pain release. She confirmed it, as this is exactly what it does.
My session with Alyssa
We connected with a video call. Alyssa first asked me some questions and explained what I needed to do. She was very helpful and attentive. Basically, the only thing you need to do is relax, be attentive to your body and feelings, and allow everything that starts to come up to surface. Of course you need to trust the healer and believe in the power of this practice, it is very important. I had no trouble with either of these. Alyssa was working with my energy field, identifying the areas that need attunement, and then restoring those parts of my biofield.
During the session, at some point it got very intense for me, and tears starting running down my face. I knew that I was releasing what I didn’t need to be carrying around with me anymore. We always have to feel deeply before we let go.
My First Biofield Tuning Results
The session lasted 45 minutes. On your side it is really just that: relaxing, keeping your mind blank, and receiving the healing. At the end I felt such powerful sensations. I felt so much lighter and also full of light and life. I had this beautiful shine in my eyes. This reminded me of my Reiki attunement. It was a beautiful experience and I really look forward to another session.
I can tell that maybe for the first time in my life I am able to look back at my past and see it for what it really is—me growing and having the experiences I needed to have in order to heal and start living with my full potential. I am excited to see what the following sessions will help me accomplish and how much more present I am becoming by being at peace with my process of finding myself, even though it was slower than I would have preferred.
I highly recommend Alyssa for your first practice. I strongly believe that the energetic healing practices are what this world is needing the most. It helps us rediscover ourselves and our power. I wish all of us to keep getting there, as this is a process and not a destination.
