Energy psychology – The art and science of wellbeing

Energy Psychology covers a range of very powerful concepts and techniques that take us away from the outdated system that only cures symptoms and heals the sick, to one that creates true self-empowerment and transformation. But what is it, and what does it do?

Energy Psychology – New and Old in Harmony

What people once knew intuitively – namely, that ‘everything is energy’ – is now supported by current scientific understanding. Under the umbrella of ‘Energy Psychology’ are the ancient arts of Acupuncture, Tai Chi, Pranic Healing and Chi Kung, as well as modern therapies such as Therapeutic Touch, Hypnosis, NLP, Kinesiology, TFT and EFT (the Emotional Freedom Technique).

These diverse approaches have one thing in common: they treat the person as a holistic ‘system’ of body, mind and spirit and acknowledge that wellbeing depends on a balanced and harmonious flow of the life energy within us – and outside of us. But is this ‘energy’ real energy?

Energy Psychology and The Life Force

With today’s sophisticated instrumentation the electromagnetic energy that flows within us can be measured. Disturbances can be detected in this infinitely intricate energy system called ‘the human’.

But you don’t need scientific gadgets to know that the mind and soul affects the body, or vice versa. The energy of our minds is incredible. Thoughts created everything around us, and our thoughts determine everything we do and experience.

The tool of thought can be our most empowering asset or it can be what causes us physical pain and emotional misery. Thoughts carry energy that is very real and you don’t need scientific gadgets to prove this, all you need is a thought or two. If you think I’m overdoing it a bit, then let me show you what I mean.

Gain Control – Mind, Body, Emotions

Think back to a time when you were really angry about something or someone. Remember what was said and done. Without torturing yourself too much, get this thought and memory back into your awareness. Now, take a moment to notice what that has done to your body.

Physically, a strong negative thought – and the connected emotions – create changes in our bodies such as stomach aches, raised blood pressure, faster heart beat, sweaty palms, head aches and more. That’s the power of thought.

Now think of a time when you were very happy (or imagine a time in the future). Go for it! Take your time and remember every detail – and then, when it feels really good, notice where and how those subtle energies are flooding your body, lifting your spirit(s). And this is just the beginning…


So thoughts and emotions affect our wellbeing. Energy Psychology is the science of the mind that understands how to effect those energies, and how to create awareness and control over what normally controls us.

Thanks to many open-minded doctors, psychologists and scientists, who are successfully using a combination of traditional and alternative approaches, this transformation is becoming a reality for more and more people.
