Energy is What Moves All Things. It’s Motion
Energy is a part of God’s created universe and is a part of every living thing. The Bible tells us that there was nothing created that Jesus did not create from the beginning. Energy describes motion of what God has created. Thousands of years ago people discovered the healing properties of moving energy in the human body. This process also can facilitate emotional release and therefore emotional healing. Our bodies were created to work as one unit; body, mind, spirit/soul. One part of us out of balance can create problems in other parts of us and keep us out of balance. A body that achieves more balance is a healthier, happier, body and therefore person.
Much to the error in belief of many in the Christian faith, energy healing is not of the occult, nor is it demonic. It is only that, if it is used in that manor. In fact, there is no religion or belief system that is attached to energy healing accept that energy exists and God created it as it is. If God is a part of everything He created, then He is apart of energy or movement, and therefore how energy can facilitate emotional healing. Christ is involved in any process if we involve Him. The devil certainly does not want people to be healed, made whole, or glorifying God for what He created to be faithful and true.
Energetic emotional release is a process that helps stored effects of emotional imbalance to be released from certain areas of the body from past or present experiences. Holistic chiropractors have done this work for a long time. They work with meridian points in the body to release stored stress that cause the body to be in a state of unease. This causes disease.
Much to many beliefs, energy healing and energetic emotional release is not against Christian principles or against God. There is nothing in the Bible that says, “Do not activate or move energy.” Only when we leave God out of the equation and focus on the energy release itself as a healer is it then idolatry. I’ve given this topic a great deal of prayer and consideration before putting it “out there”. If energy healing helps release stored emotions that cause disease then the benefits are worth the practice. If God is brought into the equation then He is glorified in the process!
Jesus healed in many ways and the way He healed is primarily a mystery. He laid on hands, had healing virtue flow out of His body, and commanded demons to depart. His ways were hardly standard for His time. Even the Pharisees accused Him of using demonic powers to cast out demons, which is absurd. Why on earth would the devil want anyone set free or healed?
The ground breaking pioneer of Christian energy healing Sarah J Thiessen affirmed the practice in her book “Splankna”, which is an energy healing technique she developed from her research. The type of energy healing and release techniques that I personally use are not quite the same, but regardless of how energy healing is provided, the main thing is that Christ is a part of the process and that it works!
While it is true that New Age believers practice this type of healing it does not mean the practice is New Age. In fact, it has no religious affiliation at all. I have been trained in two different types of energy healing and have developed energetic emotional release from the techniques I have studied. Christ is a part of the process in that He is invited through Holy Spirit to be present during the entire session. The release and praise is the gratification and all the support we need to understand how helpful this can be. To God be all the glory for what He provides for us in every way, because He loves and cares for us deeply!

**Although similar, the emotional energy release technique I speak of is not the same as Splankna which is practiced through the Splankna Therapy Institute. All information above was learned myself as I went through various forms of energy release techniques and teachings.
