I was excited to buy a copy of the newly released book Blessed with Energy: The Mystery of Energy Medicine Explained Through Science and Scripture by Marcy Meyers. I attended the Barbara Brennan School of Healing with Marcy for a couple of years. During our final year, she gave an excellent presentation about Christianity and Energy Healing. Like myself, she offers counselling and energy healing, but with her own blend of skills. I was curious to learn more about her knowledge and experience.
This book is written for a few different audiences:
- Christians who are receiving or contemplating energy healing and are unclear about whether it fits with their beliefs.
- Individuals who want to learn more about how energy healing works from a scientific lens
- Individuals who are at a roadblock on their healing journey
She starts by giving an overview of the science of energy healing and exploring its relationship to sound and the electromagnetic field. She explains complex things in a reader-friendly way.
She also writes about her own health issues and struggles with medical doctors who couldn’t help her heal from infertility and few other physical ailments. As many people do in this situation, she started to explore complementary healthcare for healing. She had success in healing her infertility using energy healing along with breathwork, good eating, counselling and more.
Alongside the exploration of energy healing in the book she inserts scripture passages that have helped her as a Christian support the concepts of chakras, auras, and hands on healing in general. She has shifted from being fearful of energy healing to embracing it as a gift from God. She masterfully writes without the intention of trying to convince the reader. She provides scriptures passages for the readers to contemplate for themselves.
“Miracles do not happen in contradiction to nature, but only in contradiction to what is known about nature” St. Augustine.
Perhaps my favourite part of the book is the selection of resources she shares. From diet, sound therapy, protection against electromagnetic fields (EMFs), breathwork and more.
If you’re a Christian, you may be a little unsure of this book by looking at the cover. It’s beautiful cover, but a little intense and a bit “new agey”. Try not to let that deter you. If you can keep an open mind, it will be to your benefit to explore whether her interpretation of the Bible fits with your interpretation. Broadening the conversation is the goal.
Whether you’re a Christian or not, if you’re interested in learning more about the science of energy healing as an avenue to healing, this is an excellent book to explore.
