An affirmation is a statement you repeat to yourself, preferably several times a day, in order to ”reprogram” your self-image with the purpose of feeling better and increasing the love for yourself; for example: ”I love myself. I deserve to feel great.” By regular repetition it finally becomes obvious and true.
Alternative Medicine is the overall impression of the treatment methods that are not part of the traditional medicine. Examples of alternative therapies include practices such as homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, energy medicine, various forms of acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine and Healing. The treatments are those that are not part of the science-based healthcare system, and are not clearly backed by scientific evidence.
Analysis is “a careful study of something to learn about its parts, what they do, and how they are related to each other”.
An angel is a spiritual being. They are here to help, especially as a messenger from God or as a guardian of human beings.
The ability to communicate telepathically with animals.
Just like humans, animals can have traumas that are stored for a long time and cause the animal to alter its behavior or even fall ill by manifesting into symptoms or physical disease. Through communication the animals are able to describe their issues and pains, which can then be treated with energy healing, alternative, holistic therapy or traditional veterinary treatment.
An electromagnetic energy field that surrounds the physical body.
One way to create a balance in an aura if it’s pale, unbalanced and detects blockages.
Awareness usually means that the person is aware of the higher levels of consciousness; that is knowledge that comes from the heart.
Science can now demonstrate that the human body is not only a physical body but also that it consists of an energy field within and around the body. They call this field “the bio-field”. This bio-field regulates all your biological functions. Any changes in the biofield can affect your health at cellular, molecular, atomic and subatomic levels.
Chakra Healing, Chakra balancing
Many imbalances in the body can be helped by the alignment and balancing of the seven main chakras in the body (see chakras for more information). This can be done by a holistic therapist and there is a meditation you can do for that specific purpose. This should be done by a Holistic Therapist or carried out under clear instructions. To balance the chakra system improperly can create physical and psychological disorders.
Chakra is Sanskrit and literally translates “wheel of light”. They are energy-centers in the body that correspond to different bodily and spiritual functions. There are seven main chakras, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head: root/base chakra (red), spleen chakra (orange), solar plexus chakra (yellow), heart chakra (green), throat chakra (light blue), third eye chakra (indigo), crown chakra (violet or white).
“The easiest way to describe channeling is having access to an information channel. By channeling one tunes into a frequency or channel, similar to the way you set up a radio station. At this frequency information is available and it is easy to contact spiritual guides and advisers. Questions can get answered from a higher perspective and sometimes life becomes easier knowing that you are not alone.” (Susanne Jönsson)
A higher consciousness means you can reach higher levels of knowledge that come from within yourself, more specifically from your heart. It is knowledge, enlightenment and an understanding on all levels that exist within you and beyond. It is an understanding of how everything is connected and affects each other in depth as well as on the surface, the ability to see the small details without losing the big picture. Everything has a meaning and a reason, and we are all equally important in every context. When our consciousness expands, the human intelligence increases and new parts of the brain are activated. Some people are using their new knowledge for research or the development of new technology, others use it intuitively to explore more within themselves and to help and support others. See also ”higher consciousness”.
The crown is a part of the light body. In old paintings by the masters, the crown can sometimes be seen depicted as a disc of light around the heads of enlightened and pure-hearted individuals, such as angels and the Virgin Mary. See also “human light body”, “higher consciousness”.
The healing energies also work over distance. If a client is unable to attend a healing session physically, distance healing can be a good alternative. Client and healer decide upon a time, and the client relaxes by lying down comfortably while the session is going on.
The term ‘astral’, ‘etheric’, or even ‘dream’ body, refers to the theory that human consciousness can become completely separate from the body, and in this form be free of the limitations the body has. The astral body is said to appear very much like the physical body, with all the features and limbs, but be made of subtler material, or even of thought and emotion.
Every living being resonates at its own frequency. In 1952 physicist Winfried Otto Schumann succeeded in demonstrating mathematically that there is a global electromagnetic resonance at approximately 8 Hertz. Electromagnetic waves create a pulse like a beating heart. (8 Hz is also the frequency of the double Helix of the human DNA!)
Everything is energy that resonates at different frequencies. The lower the frequency, the denser the energy becomes. Our physical body is our energy expressed at its lowest form, but we also have other “bodies” at higher frequencies – energy bodies. These correspond to our physical body, but are – for most people – not as noticeable in the third dimensional world we live in.
Energy Body-Mind-Soul Work
This is a holistic way of thinking and acting, where body, mind and soul are equally important in regards to the health and wellness of a person. These aspects work as a system of energy that affect each other, and need to be addressed in order to achieve a state of wholeness and balance.
Energy Field Healing
The physical body is interconnected with energy fields that surround and penetrate the body – the aura and the chakras. In the aura it shows how we are living our lives; “mirroring” our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. Imbalances can be seen here, even before they manifest in the physical body. Everything is connected and needs to be addressed in order to achieve an overall healing. By removing blockages and restoring flow, the wellbeing of the client is increased. See also “energy work”, “aura”, “chakras”.
An energy healer can identify energetic blockages in the human body and its subtler, lighter, energy fields, such as the aura and the chakras. These blockages can have its origins on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level, and are often interconnected. By removing them and then repairing and balancing the energies, the healer helps facilitate the body’s own phenomenal healing capacities.
Everything that exists is energy. The physical body is made up of low frequency energies, which makes it dense (matter). Feelings, thoughts and belief systems are also energy and resonate at different frequencies. All these aspects affect our overall health and need to be in harmony for us to feel well. There are different healing techniques where the practitioner can manipulate the energies in order to help restore harmony in the body. These include, but are not limited to; Holistic healing, Reiki, Biofield energy healing and Qigong. See also “energy healer”, “holistic healing”, “energy field healing”.
An entity is a soul that does not have a physical body.
The Gloria is a part of the light body called the Crown. In old paintings by the masters, the crown can sometimes be seen depicted as a disc of light around the heads of enlightened and pure-hearted individuals, such as angels and the Virgin Mary. See also “Human light body”, “Higher consciousness”, Crown.

Crystal healing is a technique that employs stones and crystals and for balancing the body using the healing properties of gemstones and crystals. For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have used these stones for healing and to increase other spiritual work and knowledge.
In one method, the practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to chakras; or else the practitioner places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct an energy grid, which is purported to surround the client with healing energy.

“Hypnosis is the term applied to a unique, complex form of unusual but normal behavior which can be induced in all normal persons under suitable conditions and also in many persons suffering from various types of abnormality. It is primarily a special psychological state with certain physiological attributes, resembling sleep only superficially and marked by a functioning of the individual at a level of awareness other than the ordinary conscious state…”

Inner Work, Inner Work Therapy
Inner work is the ability to use different ways, tools and techniques of self-reflection and self correction to transform your relationship with yourself and with the world. The concept of “inner work” is part of many spiritual traditions and psychological approaches, and includes the use of tools such as meditations, dreams, active imagination and mindfulness.
Everyone has a purpose, a reason for living on Earth here and now. Knowing their mission in life helps many people cope with life in a simpler way. “Once we know where we are going, it is easier to take the next step.”

A mantra is a word or a phrase that you repeat silently in your mind during meditation.
Meditation means physical and mental relaxation without falling asleep. We often use some kind of help to reach this state. It can be with the help of a mantra (a word repeated silently in your thought), using the breath or through a guided meditation.
