Evolving the Etheric Body
Supporting Physical Healing
Do you need additional tools to help your clients recover and heal from illness & disease?
Energy healing is powerful medicine for physical healing and symptom relief
Energy healing practitioners support physical and emotional evolution
What the body holds and carries, may or may not be physical! It is possible that your physical body is holding and laboring with emotional energy that has been suppressed/repressed into the Etheric energy system, that eventually can contribute to (or create), an illness, syndrome or disease.
Have you or one of your clients ever had a doctor run the gamut of tests only to be told there's nothing wrong? Yet somehow, physical symptoms, pain and discomfort exist?
Have you or one of your clients had a medical treatment or procedure that 'should' have addressed a physical issue, yet it continues to exist and cause problems post-procedure?
Have you identified the correlation between certain emotions and physical symptoms? For example, anxiety and digestive issues often go hand in hand. Several naturopaths have told me that they observe hypothyroidism as a physical manifestation of grief.
The physical body and the emotions are tightly integrated, and sometimes the body is the 'tail wagging the dog'. In other words, the disease or malaise has its roots elsewhere, but over time, the physical body winds up holding the bag.
Learning to work with Etheric energy is an appropriate next step for those who are now well-versed in the energy of the Astral body. Especially when congruence exists between the Astral and Etheric energy systems and their energetic properties.
Energy Healing and the Etheric/physical body
Practitioners are often eager to work with supporting physical healing. And that's totally understandable. What's important to realize is the complexity of the human body is mirrored by the complexity of the Etheric energy system.
Unlike the Astral energy body, the Etheric body has thousands of chakras that deliver energy to and shed energy from the glands, organs, joints, muscles, tendons, and that keep the body's processes harmonious. The Etheric energy system is in communication with the body as a whole, in the same way that the brain and nervous system are in communication with the entire organism. When a change is made in the Etheric body, the entire energy system must integrate and 'receive' that shift or change.
Additionally, the Etheric energy system or body has a very dense, compact aura, that extends about one inch off the surface of the body. Contrasting the Etheric aura, surrounding the body, extending one inch off the surface, with the Astral aura, surrounding the body as well and extending nearly 3-4' off of the body speaks to the dense, compact, tightly integrated nature of the Etheric field and the expansive, evolutionary capacity of the emotional field.
EHI practitioners quickly learn that when working with clients with physical issues, the principle of less is more is well applied in the Etheric body. It's not unusual for an energy healing session to support healing of a physical issue is conducted with a 70/30 ratio of clearing and infusing. Seventy percent of the time the work is taking place in the Astral body, and 30% of the time in the Etheric body. Does this help you see why EHI places such an important emphasis on learning the Astral body first?

Nothing happens physically that doesn't first happen energetically
Energy is causative. If energy flows freely, in alignment and coherence with the physical body and its needs, the body would be whole, well, healthy, vibrant and clear.
Yet there's so many factors that contribute to wellness. Our thoughts and beliefs, our nutritional choices, our level of hydration, the toxins in our home and community environment. What do all of these factors have in common? Energy. Energy precedes physicality, it generates form.
Our relationship to our body is also profoundly impacted by our emotions. The spectrum of emotions exist to offer context, meaning and validity to experience.
If your car is sideswiped by a hit and run driver, is it reasonable to think that you'll feel angry and violated? Of course it is!
If you're stuck in traffic and going to be late for an important meeting that you've looked forward to attending, is it appropriate to feel anxious? Absolutely! Anxiety is a perfectly normal response.
Yet, you may have emotions that make you feel uncomfortable, or that you were told are unacceptable. For example, some girls are discouraged from accessing and expressing anger, as it is not perceived as a feminine emotion. Boys are sometimes discouraged from feeling and allowing sadness or grief, as the emotions are not considered masculine. Yet, the emotions exist and are experienced. When these emotions begin to rise, but are suppressed or repressed, they are condensed and migrate from the Astral body where they belong, into the energy system of the physical body, where they inhibit flow.
Flow is essential for vitality and well-being. When flow is inhibited or blocked, dysregulation occurs. With thousands of chakras and nadis delivering energy to the physical body, a disruption in flow effect functioning. Over time, illness, disharmony, symptoms, disease can occur.
Supporting Physical Healing
An integrated energy healing session that incorporates both Astral and Etheric clearing facilitates evolution in both emotional and physical well-being. The work is generally iterative, it's not about delivering a magic bullet or 'one and done' experience. Rather an integrated energy healing session validates the client's current state of being, while making space for evolution, conscious awareness and physical and emotional healing.
Practitioners may also have other modalities that they have deeply studied and offer to their clients. Energy healing is a beautiful modality to integrate into a suite of services. It need not stand wholly on its own (though it can easily and effectively do so).
Many of EHI's practitioners have discovered the importance of a process for evolving energy as an essential aspect of their practice offering.
Bodyworkers speak of:
- applying energy clearing practices when a client has an emotional release
- using energy clearing as a precursor to working on resolving a physical injury, as a means of priming the pump for physical release
Medical & clinical practitioners understand:
- what presents as a physical issue that cannot be explained or treated medically has energetic and emotional roots that need exploration for the issue and its symptoms to resolve
- the mind-body connection shows itself repeatedly with emotional issues that correlate to physical ones
Modalities that treat the physical body may not offer mechanisms for managing and supporting emotional release
For many years, I have taught and supervised practitioners who have spoken about their concerns about their modalities not offering context and tools for managing emotional and/or physical release.
As these practitioners learn to work with the Astral and Etheric body, and explore broader intake processes to learn more about the client's mind-body awareness, their appreciation of the role of energy healing grows exponentially. It doesn't simply offer another tool in the toolkit, it magnifies the potential for healing and evolution.
What follows this program?
Beyond the Etheric body? Oh yes, there's more you can learn and practice at EHI. Energetic Assessment: Determining Root Cause is a rigorous practitioner program taught live, online by Jill Leigh. Once the Astral and Etheric programs are completed, you can step into the work of understanding the root cause of disease and illness. While some teachers might call this Medical Intuition, EHI sees that term as potentially misleading. After all, who is legally trained to diagnose disease or illness? Doctors.
There is no point in raising concerns about your role or putting yourself at risk by claiming a label that speaks to illegal activity. Energetic Assessment is a complex, in-depth approach to understanding what is generating an illness or disease in the body. Practitioners learn to work from a diagnosis to discover and help the client unravel the energies that generate and hold an illness in place. An Energetic Assessment also helps practitioners develop effective treatment strategies, and to support clients to contextualize the 'why' behind a diagnosis.
"Thank you, Jill. You are stimulating my curiosity. I find myself reaching for joy and playfulness in a way that I haven't for a long time. I'm inviting it in, accepting it as a possibility rather than pushing it away or delaying it. I release burden so I may grasp curiosity, playfulness and joy. You are doing good things in the world."
