I have had the opportunity to help people right after they have slammed their finger in a door or hit themselves in the face and were about to get a black eye. When that happens, the energy of the hit gets trapped in the body and is figuring out where to go. I can feel the energy of impact rushing through the body and then back to the place of impact. This is what causes the break it blood vessels that causes the bruising of the black eye. The blood vessels can’t handle the amount of energy that has been forced into them. It breaks open the blood vessels as the energy uses them as courier systems. The energy is gushing to move to some destination worthy of such force. But there is no destination. So the energy backs up and tries to push forward at the same time. This causes the pain and the bruising. It is merely the force of energy introduced to the body trying to figure out a means out of the body. It pushes all through the body and then tries to get out at the place it was introduced. This is what the throbbing is at the place of impact. It is the coming and going energy being felt moving through the body.
It is no different in professional sports. Except when an athlete gets hit by another athlete; as in football, the intention to hit the opponent compounds the injury. Not only is the player dealing with the impact, but this injury is not a generic hit, as in an accident. There is an intention behind it. Not only is the energy of the hit rushing through the body, so is the intentions of the person who delivered it. There is weight and matter albeit subtle; to emotions like anger and desperation to succeed. Perhaps if you talk to professional football players, they will be able to get a sense of the difference between a benevolent player who just happens to be on the other team, or a player who has it out for them. Undeniably, to those who pay attention to such things, the hit sustained by a true enemy is more painful and maybe even more damaging that one of a neutral opposition. Intentions matter.
When I work with someone who has just smashed their face or finger, I simply use myself as a channel for the trapped energy to leave the body. I feel it trapped at the site of the injury and I draw it out. It is really that simple. There is no more throbbing finger. There is no black eye. The energy has been released and the pain is simply gone. It is not magic, It is a simple release of trapped energy. If there are emotions involved; like anger; I take that energy out as well by converting it into sound. That is all that is happening when an energy worker makes freaky sounds. They are converting stagnant energy into a form that can be release. This is sound in some form. It can be yelling, crying, singing or vocalized chaos. It is all converting a stagnant energy and dissipating it. This is part of what a Shaman does. It is the same reason that people will shake rattles, hit gongs, and even play harsh music. They are converting energy to sound to alleviate pressure of some kind.
The same principle holds true for concussions. All a concussion is; from an energetic perspective; is the energy of an impact rolling around the brain and causing pressure on the pathways of the brain. But the energy keeps rolling around in the brain in an endless loop trying to find a means to release. The energy of an impact is like a trapped animal trying to find its way out of a maze. Those who are affected by a major hit and are perceptive, may get a sense of being off until the being off becomes their new normal.
For many players, I am sure there are times when they get a hit and they feel better than ever. The subsequent hit afforded the body the opportunity to empty out a lot of the energy that has been trapped from previous hits. Maybe perhaps for seasoned players, the energy of the hits to the head, may not release of their own accord. Perhaps some hits to the brain, create that endless loop of energy that does not release on its own. Perhaps its liken to water getting trapped deep in the ear canal and needs a bit of assistance in getting out. I believe I can release that trapped energy and prevent the symptoms of concussions from being severe if showing up at all.
I know it’s a big claim. Unfortunately being a reclusive energy worker with limited social contacts, I have not been able to test my theory on many athletes. I would LOVE the opportunity. The process is very simple…for me. It is a matter of simply providing a channel for all the energy that is trapped in circulation in the brain cavity to release. I am able to feel energy and will be able to pull the extra energy out of the body. The player may notice a subtle sense of relief or they may not. It depends on their sensitivity level. A major athlete is not trained to feel subtle energy and may even be conditioned to turn off his sensitivities to subtle energy exchanges all together for survival in the game. Perhaps this is what has made treating concussions so tricky.
Medical instruments can not measure the subtleties of energy. They can only measure the results of the release of the energy. Perhaps there is a means a measuring the body before and after I have released the energy of impact. It would be great if it was possible to document. Because what I do can be taught. It can be taught to facilitators and it can be taught to the players as a form of self-care. Perhaps what I am referring to will become common practice in the future.
What complicates the issue a little bit is that the energy is not always neutral. Perhaps a hit is more lethal when it is delivered by someone who literally wants to destroy his opponent. The emotional factors of hate, desperation to win, playing for one’s survival and livelihood plays into it. All those intentions are also shoved into the body of the one who received a hit. Those intentions may take another path than normal channels when they enter the body of an athlete. They can hit the person and immediately go to a place in the body where that player is emotionally vulnerable. The two athletes have many of the same deep emotional reasons for playing with all their passion. Once the player has been hit, the emotion that motivated the player that hit him, finds the similar vulnerability in the player that got hit and connects. This can leave the player more vulnerable than another hit by someone who was not so vested in taking him down. When there is a mutual motivation to play the game between the two parties involved, the energy of the impact may more easily hit a weak point in the body because of this familiarity. It may do more damage than being hit by a player that one doesn’t relate to the player on an emotional level.
I am very sensitive to emotional energy. I am a reformed crier. The reason some people cry so much is that they are feeling the issues of others and confusing them with their own. I have taken this ability and put it to good use. I can feel the energy of an impact in someone’s body but I can also attribute the emotional energy that has been carried into the body with it as well. I can release also. Different emotions have different vibrations; just like different genres of music evoke different responses. I am able to sense the different forms of vibration of the energy of the hit as I release it from a player. As I released the energy of a hit, I would be able to perhaps describe to the player, what the person who hit him, felt about him. He may be able to figure out which hit did the damage to him from recognizing the intention in the opponents. This may be great feedback to use as research for such things in the future. Perhaps it would prepare the players in how to better protect themselves emotionally as well as physically. There are some great tricks players can do to protect their whole energy system from being compromised. Perhaps working with me could give a player the edge.
I have a great understanding of why players hit a wall in their career and start reaching a plateau. This level can be reversed pretty easily by introducing a dynamic intention instead of waiting the cycle of losing out. It is a simple matter of understanding what is motivating one’s self to fail instead of succeed. Some great careers end here when it is not necessary. It is a premature level of defeat that is ingrained in the make up of the DNA. In past eras, we died much younger than we do today. Players that start losing when they are at the top of their game are subconsciously reenacted a primal death on the battle field. Perhaps somewhere in their psyche they relate the playing field as a battle field and are taking themselves out of the battle in a primal display of defeat and drama. Reversing this would be a matter of knocking their psyche out of the process of dying and returning then totally to the moment. I am certain for many athletes, not being able to play at the same level does feel like a form of death on the battlefield. It is easy. with a little assistance. to prevent an athlete from sabotaging himself in this way.
I would love to assist the players and improve upon competitive sports by helping them stay healthy and productive. It is funny, I live a mile away from the Buffalo Bills training camp. It would be so easy for me to improve the athletes performance. But our worlds are like a million miles apart. I am not one to waste energy chasing down someone to help them. But I am most eager to help others when they reach out to me. I would love to improve upon the quality of life for the players and perhaps the game itself. I am willing to step into the world of competitive sports if I was kindly invited. In return I would introduce them to the exponential possibilities and potential of stepping into mine.
