I encourage you to learn the basics of bioenergy and then train those abilities. I think you will understand better and benefit from that. When a person does not exercise bioenergy, there is a certain flow of energy but weak. If you boost the flow, you will easily be able to see that this is a real thing. And can help. It is not difficult and training is not need to be long. Depending on the person, the effect can be observed if you are exercising for a few minutes, for example, before sleep, during a few days. But for the beginner, test the energy on yourself. You will notice the effect easier. If you try to treat other people, you can pick up their incorrect energy samples (illness, tendency for the same injury).It's hard for me (I was cartesian and darwinian before discovering Laura's work) to believe in the power of water, and the power of healing hands on a person*, the power of mind that heals someone in another place. It's a new domain for me, and i'm very thankfull to Laura, to Sott team, to this forum for all it brings to me since 3 years now. So, it's a domain (energy field, bioenergy) I'm discovering.
When you boost the flow of energy in your palms, your fingers, you can feel that energy even without turning to the body.
Well, how do you do that? By imagination, faith, breathing. Eg. raise your palms, inhale - imagine that energy comes into your palms, pour out - imagine that energy comes out of your palms. Faith - believe in the energy and movement of energy. This is actually a supportive element of imagination, meaning you are going along instead of blocking.
At first you will not feel anything, then you will feel something weak etc.
There are some movements with hands, like exercises to energize them, but it's difficult to explain. It's about subtle energy, so the movements must be felt. Like waves or branches of wood in the wind. It's as if the palms come in the same frequency with subtle energy and try to control that energy (but not rough but through "dancing" with that energy). When you feel this energy in your hands, you can instinctively carry out that exercise. It is not aim to do it mechanically, but with the feeling.
It is also useful to connect with subtle energy, thinking about it, imagining it. Just as lovers connect by thinking each other, or when a scientist thinks about something to come to know, a discovery. At least I think this energy is everywhere, not just in the body. But our body helps us channel it.
If you do not want to exercise a little bit, maybe you can go to a bioenergy therapist to feel it. I'm less inclined to this solution. I like self-help rather than relying on someone.
But once I accidentally felt a strong bioenergy from one person while she was close to me: a teacher of painting. I think that this person had a natural potential to heal, but unaware of it. How does this come about? Probably a strong, open, heart chakra and a strong, healthy aura. Oh, I remembered now why someone should be close to some people if wants to adopt some of their characteristics. Crossing aura brings information unconsciously.
When I slept in the army near a guy, I started to knew things about him that he never told me. So I was questioning him to check if that was true. He was surprised to I know that.
We all do energy transfers. Comment on the Internet may be the carrier of negative or positive mental energy. Words also. Eyes also (a lot of energy comes out of the eyes, and we can best feel it when we do not sleep enough, open then close eyes) . We all feel it every day. There is a difference when someone tells you the same thing with a different charge of energy. Bioenergy is a fraction of the story.
