Energy healing vs faith healing: What's the difference?
First, what do we mean by healing? Healing isn't always about being cured. Healing refers to a revitalizing and regenerative process that can occur on the emotional, spiritual, or physical level.
According to the merriam-webster online dictionary faith is defined as "A firm belief in something for which there is no proof."
There is plenty of proof that energy healing modalities affect the body. Some of the proof is considered scientific evidence as it has been gathered and analyzed using the traditional western scientific method. Some of the proof is anecdotal, gathered by non-scientists and scientists alike, and reported in their business magazines and published books.
The same dictionary source defines trust as "Assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something." What is more assured than our bodies ability to heal themselves? We routinely knit together broken bones, regenerate new skin and rewire our neural pathways.
Energy healing is about trusting your body to do what it was designed to do. No faith required.
