What is Intuitive Body Scanning…?
Body scanning is the ability to be able to see the imbalances in someone’s body. The intuitive aspect is knowing what caused it in the first place as well as what to do to achieve optimal health and clear the imbalance.
My personal story…
For me, body scanning is a natural ability I can always remember having. I just ‘knew’ when someone wasn’t feeling well, or had pain in their body. Sometimes it frightened me and I did not react well to it. I remember, as a child, seeing my grandpa and feeling afraid about his health. That day, I didn’t leave his side. He had a heart attack that night. I was afraid I had caused it and thought that there was something very wrong with me for knowing something was going to happen. This caused me to shut down my ability for years.
Through time, I came to learn that it is a gift that I needed to use wisely. I had to learn boundaries and how to body scan appropriately. I learned what to do with what I saw. And since I have always been fascinated with the human body, it became a fun skill to improve.
I think each of us has interests that we follow throughout our lifetime. For me, I have always had the desire to help people feel better – and to feel that life can BE better. But first I had to clear the fear in owning this part of me. It was very difficult to let people know I was able to do this. I’m already a little quirky; I was afraid people would judge me harshly knowing this about me as well. I felt shaky about telling others, but I kept sharing and in time, it became natural. Now, if someone finds me odd, I’m okay with that.
How do I do it…?
I have been asked ‘how’ I scan. It is really challenging to break it down and explain, but I will do my best here.
Once I have permission from the person I am going to scan, I just ‘think’ about the person and know where the imbalances are. I have had to learn not to cross their personal energetic space and so I only pick up what they are comfortable with me knowing.
I also like to have a visual, so as I’m thinking about the person, I look with my inner eye and ‘see’ how the imbalance is affecting their body. I see it in the form of shadows (some people see color, some see energy lines…it depends on the person). I see where the energy/blood isn’t flowing and I can see how dense it is. I will also think about how it feels for them, and I can literally feel it in my body how it feels in theirs. This is how I know what to do for each area.
Then, using my intuitive connection, I ask what caused this imbalance for them, and the answers pop into my head…and if I need a visual to get more details, images show up in my head. I also ask what I need to do to help them. Still using my intuitive connection and not my own personal energy, I vibrationally connect with them to help run the energy out, and assist them in balancing it within themselves. I touch/press what pops in and I trust the process. (For more information about your own personal intuitive circuit, check out Embracing Your Truth).
Can others learn how to body scan…?
Sure! Body scanning is essentially using your intuition. Intuition is paying attention to that inner voice/Source/God/Universe, etc. Some people have a natural affinity for it and/or for healing in general. But everybody can do it. If it isn’t something that comes naturally, it will just take more awareness and discipline.
