Relational Energy Therapy (RET) adds to the basics of energy healing systems such as Reiki, and Qi Gong, by first developing the capacity to tune into, and eventually transmit, certain frequencies of prana (or Qi) that are beneficial to the client’s health and wellbeing. Entry level is “let it flow where it needs to flow”, on the part of the energy healer, and progresses up towards learning specific frequencies that are used for certain outcomes, such as a frequency for reducing inflammation, one to dull pain, and others that support certain meridian flows or organs. Beginning Reiki or other systems of Energy Healing give the energy healer valuable experience in “running energy”, which is a jargon term for a clear sense of energetic flow from the healer, and towards the client. Once the ability to “run” energy is consistent, the energy healer can even move from in-person or local treatments (hands-on) to distant healing, or non-local, treatments.
Running energy takes time and training to develop, and eventually should lead to intermediate skills and concepts. This intermediate level can include a therapeutic approach, where although the energy healer avoids medical diagnosis (unless they also have medical training) he or she can assess the functionality of the client’s energy system, and apply a corrective series of frequencies, or implement a healing protocol that leads to better results than entry-level frequency transmission work alone.
There are three aspects to Relational Energy Therapy intermediate protocols:
1. Find an Entry Point: a therapeutically-helpful place to start working with the client’s energy field that specifically targets an area needing support, or further development
2. Develop a spiral of energy work that further enhances energy flow in the entire energy body of the client (e.g. The Six Session Series works from Chakra One/Boundary to Chakra Six, creating a series of sessions that “spiral” up the main chakras, and fill out weak areas, as well as support stronger ones)
3. Progress from the general spiral of energy work towards more specialized circulations of prana. Examples of circulations are the Microcosmic Orbit, and meridian flow circuits (e.g. The Twelve Standard Meridians of Acupuncture).
The Entry Point is a diagnostic protocol that a therapeutic energy healer can use to locate the best and most supportive place to start work with the client’s energy body, and at the start of each session. For instance, at the beginning of working with a brand new client, the standard entry points will probably include energy boundary clearing work, enhancing their rooting through the feet chakras, and creating more safety in the body. Further into a Six Session Series, or after some more in-depth work, the Entry Point may shift towards working with a weakened Chakra. Finally, an Entry Point can also be a specific chakra cord that connects the client to an important person in their life.
The spiral refers to the general building and charging of the entire auric energy body, in spite of any problems that have not yet been addressed at the chakra or chakra cord level. I personally use either a Big Three Mini-Series, or a Six Session Series, each of which generates an increase in overall energy charge in the client’s auric field. But RET practitioners are free to assign their own number of sessions, or fine-tune the spiral process for their own clients.
Circulations are a vital ingredient added to intermediate energy work, because we move towards addressing specific circuits of the energy body that, when enhanced, or cleared of hindrances, also lead towards a systemic or whole energy body improvement. I will tend to work with chakra circulations, and organ systems, and rarely delve into TCM meridians, but RET healers who already work with meridians may prefer to augment their TCM protocols with energy circulations through any relevant meridians. There are plenty of circulations in the body to choose from, and which can yield good results.
More advanced skills such as Astral Energetics, Chakra development, and Chakra Cord work, depend on first increasing the habitual amounts of prana that circulate and accumulate throughout the client’s auric body. As the spiral and circulation work progresses, the Entry Points shift and change, and allow the RET healer to track and support the client in their personal growth development. And, of course, the healer will need to track and support his or her own energy system: both spiral (whole body) and specific (specialized circulations).
