Cry It Out: Why Tears Are Necessary And Good

–by Nancy Hausauer

mystical artwork with tear

In my energy healing practice, it’s not uncommon for people to cry. Sometimes a single teardrop, sometimes a flood of water-borne emotion.

I see it as a good thing. It’s energy, emotional energy, in motion. Healthy energy is supposed to move. Healthy emotions are supposed to move–through us and out. Tears are a literal embodiment of the flow of emotional energy.

So when people cry, it’s healthy. It clears the energy field, removes blockages and frees the energy to circulate. It releases emotions so that they don’t crystallize in the body, showing up as illness, pain, depression or chronic stress. Think about it. Don’t you usually feel lighter and clearer after a good cry?

When people cry on my treatment table, I usually try to offer muted, low-key reassurance that it’s OK, even good, and that it’s completely appropriate. I watch their breath. If they’re holding it, I remind them to breathe. Other than that, I try as much as possible not to intervene. Even kindly intended comments or words of comfort can cut the process short.

But, especially for new healers, people’s tears can be unsettling. So I want to offer you some more information about tears to help you realize how totally awesome they are.

Tears: Not Just Salty Water

In this article for Psychology Today, Judith Orloff, M.D. discusses some of the benefits of tears. Tears:

  • excrete stress hormones
  • stimulate production of endorphins
  • contain antibodies that fight pathogenic microbes
  • improve vision by lubricating your eyes and removing irritants,
  • decrease breathing and heart rate, increasing calm (typically)
  • elevate mood.

Pretty awesome, right?

I’ll close with a beautiful quote from this article, “The Topography of Tears.” I recommend reading the whole article if you have time.

“Tears are the medium of our most primal language in moments as unrelenting as death, as basic as hunger, and as complex as rites of passage. They are the evidence of our inner life overflowing its boundaries, spilling over into consciousness. Tears spontaneously release us to the possibility of realignment, reunion, catharsis, intractable resistance short-circuited… It’s as though each one of our tears carries a microcosm of the collective human experience, like one drop of an ocean.”

I wish you the ability to cry freely whenever you need to –Nancy

Is There Something Important You Want To Bring Into Being?

–by Nancy Hausauer

Here’s a powerful manifestation exercise that works with the Field of Potential, which I talked about in last week’s blog post. It’s adapted from the wonderful book Spiritual Growth by Sanaya Roman. (Website here, with lots of great resources: https://www.orindaben.com/)

  • First, think carefully about something meaningful you’d like to bring into being. This is a powerful technique, so don’t play around with what you try to do with it.
  • Breathe or meditate to put yourself into a state of calm.
  • Imagine a gridwork or web of light around your head. See it extending up into the higher, celestial dimensions, growing finer and more beautiful the higher it goes.
  • With your awareness, travel up this gridwork, leaving the physical world and entering the realm of Source Energy, where the Field of Infinite Potential is.
  • In this realm, see yourself meeting the as-yet unmanifested energy of what you want to bring into being. Use your imagination to experience it in detail. In your third eye, picture it, smell it, hear it–as intensely as you can. Make it even more beautiful, more full of light and goodness.
  • Now turn it into a symbol, if that feels right.
  • Imagine that this un-manifested energy of what you want to create is alive and able to interact with you. Engage with it in whatever way feels right (e.g., speaking, listening, touching, dancing, etc.). Ask it to manifest in a way that is for the highest good of everyone who will be affected by it.
  • Now let the energy of what you want to create transform into pure particles of light, of the highest vibration possible. From this state, visualize or imagine the light traveling down the grid, crossing from the world of potential into the physical world.
  • Open yourself to receive these light particles. Receive them with love and radiate them out to fill your whole energy field: physical body, mind, emotions, subtle energy.
  • Let the light particles radiate out further, into your life. Imagine that the light and your energy are cooperating to easily and harmoniously bring what you want to manifest into your life in its highest form, for the highest good of all who will be affected by it.
  • Now believe that you already have what you want to create, that it already exists. Be prepared to recognize it when you see it and to create time and space for it.
  • Take some time to explore how you feel with it in your life.
  • To close, give sincere thanks. Come back to the here and now, feeling your new connection to what it is you are bringing into your life.

With hope and power, Nancy

Working With The Realm Of Potential

–by Nancy Hausauer

deep space

I want to share this beautiful line from Jessica Powers’ poem, ” Song at Daybreak.”

“Come down to me, my beautiful unknown.”*

The last year or so, I’ve taken to saying this with as much fervor as I can muster when I wake in the morning.

It helps me be hopeful. Beyond that, it helps me tap into the infinite Realm of Potential.

The Realm (or Field) of Potential is the plane, for lack of a better word, in which all potentials exist. Everything that can be exists there, in some form, waiting to be brought into physical existence.

Is the Realm of Potential “real”? I don’t know. I suspect something like this exists, but even if it doesn’t, it’s a useful concept. It reminds me that anything is possible, and for a powerful moment or two, it takes me out of the thought-based approach of looking at likelihood.

That’s important, because when our thoughts tell us something isn’t likely, that sets up barriers to that thing coming into being. The “isn’t- likely” belief acts like a pair of glasses that filters out the opportunities, handholds, allies, doorways, helping hands and lucky breaks that might help us–if only we could see them.

So when I embrace the line “Come down to me, my beautiful unknown,” I’m allowing the words to immerse me in the glow of the infinite Field of Potential. It’s a great way to go into the day.

Check back next week for a powerful manifestation exercise that works with the Realm of Potential.

With hope and power, Nancy

Using Ceremony in Environmental Healing: An Essay By Charles Eisenstein

Earth from space

I can’t think of anything I’d rather share with you right now than this beautiful essay.

It is about “a reunion of the ceremonial with the pragmatic built upon a profoundly different way of seeing the world.” About healing places on the earth where the earth and/or creatures (including human animals) have been traumatized. Wow. Here are some quotes from it. which I hope will tempt you to read the whole essay:

Here are some quotes from it. which I hope will tempt you to read the whole essay:

“The mindset that calls us to ceremony is the same mindset that calls us to ask, “What does the land want? What does the river want? What does the wolf want? What does the forest want?” and then pays close attention to the clues.”


“What works for most of us is to establish one oasis of perfection – the ceremony – as best we are able, and then to allow it to ripple out across our lifescape, progressively bringing more attention, beauty, and power into every act. To make every act a ceremony begins with making one act a ceremony.”


“A shrine connects us with the sacred that transcends any shrine and includes every shrine. A ceremony can make a place into a shrine, offering a lifeline to a reality in which everything is sacred; it is the outpost of that reality or that world-story. In the same way, a healed piece of ground is an outpost of those remaining oases of Earth’s original vitality, such as the Amazon, the Congo, and a scattering of undisturbed coral reefs, mangrove swamps, and so on… Each place of earth healing also feeds the Amazon and draws us nearer to a world in which it remains intact. And, strengthening our relationship to such places, we call upon unknowable powers to fortify our resolve and coordinate our alliances.”

Wishing you love, light and ceremony, Nancy

An Easy Technique For Strengthening Your Boundaries.

–by Nancy Hausauer

human aura

Most of us can could stand to have stronger energetic boundaries.

To review, your energy field is a cocoon of energy or light that surrounds you, anywhere from a few inches to a few feet out from your physical body. At the working edge of this field (it actually extends infinitely), there’s a boundary. Like your skin, it acts as a container for your energy, holding in what’s meant to be inside and screening out what’s meant to be outside.

It’s likely your boundaries could use a boost if you:

  • are feeling tired, run down, overwhelmed, foggy-minded, or confused
  • are getting sick a lot, or having a lot of mishaps
  • are worrying a lot, generally or about specific things/people
  • feel other people’s emotions
  • are intuitively gifted, especially as an empath
  • are a “helper” or “people-pleaser”
  • put others’ needs before your own, or sacrifice your own health or happiness for others
  • have a hard time saying “no”
  • get overly involved in the affairs of others
  • feel like you can’t stand up for yourself, or conversely, that you bully people into doing what you want
  • are angry or resentful and don’t really know why
  • are often mistreated by others (especially if you accept it)
  • were abused as a child
  • feel overwhelmed by other people’s emotions or moods.

A long list, I know–and it’s not even an exhaustive one. Which illustrates my point that most of us can benefit from shoring up our energetic boundaries. Here’s a really easy way to do that.

Easy Technique To Strengthen Your Boundaries

  1. Get comfortable and focus on your breath for at least a few breath cycles to help you ground and center.
  2. Sense or imagine your energy field and fill it with even more light. (You can use your breath to do this. Just breathe in light and sense or imagine your light increasing.)
  3. Sense or imagine the boundary of your field as a thin membrane or shell that outlines your energy, brighter than the light of your field.
  4. Next, you’re going to gather additional energy to work with. In whatever way you wish, pull more energy/light specifically into your heart, and allow it to overflow into your arms and hands. You can breathe it in, as before, or pull it from the earth, stars, sun, etc. Whatever works for you is fine.
  5. Stretch out your arms–either physical or energetic–and touch the boundary of your field from the inside. Use the additional energy that you’ve just pulled in to “charge” your field’s boundary, making it stronger and brighter. Set the intention that it will screen out undesired energies and contain desired energies.
  6. Do a quick scan to observe closely how this feels.

That’s it. You can do this in under a minute, or take longer if you wish.

Boundaries are good, and I wish you strong, healthy ones. — Nancy

Energy Healing To Keep Your Child Well This School Year

–by Nancy Hausauer

Little Kids

With school starting soon, I’d like to share some energy healing techniques that parents can do to strengthen their children’s immune systems (and their own).

Illness-causing microbes are always out there. From an energetic perspective, illness is often the result of the energy field wearing thin because of stress or other depletions such as poor eating and sleeping habits, or from actual breaches in the field caused by emotional or physical trauma. Without these energetic openings, the energies of the illness are less likely to be able to get a foothold.

As with more practical defenses (washing hands, eating and sleeping well, etc.), in energy healing an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So here are a few energetic preventative techniques to help keep your kids’ energy systems robust and their bodies well.

  • Stress depletes the energy field and inhibits immune system function, so teach your child stress management and relaxation techniques.
  • In particular, teach them belly breathing. It stimulates lymphatic flow, calms the nervous system, and helps balance the energy system. Make it a family activity.
  • Whenever they seem “off,” ground them by holding or rubbing their feet. (Firmly so as not to tickle.)
  • When they’re upset, smooth and balance their field by running your open hand(s) along the contour of their body about 6-12 inches above it, like petting an imaginary cat, multiple times, head to toe. You can also spread your fingers a bit and “comb” their field.
  • Teach your child basic energetic techniques such as grounding (have them imagine they’re sending down roots from the soles of their feet deep into the earth, like a tree), centering , and surrounding her/himself with light.
  • Get your child out into nature—one of the best things you can do for both energetic and physical wellness.
  • Domestic animals are wonderful healers, helping to buffer, absorb and balance energy, so let your child spend lots of time with the family pet.

Donna Eden’s classic book Energy Medicine is a great resource for family wellness, and here are some other ideas, too.

Of course, sometimes we get sick with us no matter what we do, so don’t blame yourself if your child catches a cold. Just take good care of them (and yourself) and use it as an opportunity to bond.

Are You An Empath? Here’s A Self-Healing For You

–by Nancy Hausauer

Hands forming heart shape

Recently, a client who is an extreme empath was telling me how a close friend’s problems were bringing her (my client) down emotionally.

We talked a bit about how, from an energetic standpoint, this indicated that she was letting the energy of her friend’s suffering into her own energy field, including her physical body. She realized she could actually feel it in her body as a kind of heaviness.

Around that point, I received an image of my client holding the suffering of her friend in her hands. From there, an energetic exercise/self-healing sprang into my mind. I think it could be helpful for other empaths as well.

Returning Suffering To Its Rightful Owner: An Exercise To Help Empaths

If you feel you’ve taken on someone else’s suffering:

  1. Sit comfortably with your hands palms up and resting comfortably in your lap.
  2. Feel, envision or imagine the suffering you’ve taken on from someone else, wherever it is in your energy field and/or physical body. It may be in one place, or it may be diffuse.
  3. If it’s diffuse, use intention to consolidate the energy into one distinct entity (or imagine that you’re doing so). It may be a particular shape or thing, or it may just be a lump. Doesn’t matter.
  4. Again using intention or imagination, place the object that represents the suffering in your open hands.
  5. Imagine that the “owner” of the suffering is in front of you.
  6. With love and kindness, return the suffering to them. You can imagine handing it to them, or you can actually stretch your physical hands out toward them.
  7. At their highest level, they know the suffering belongs to them alone. Imagine them accepting it. Imagine yourself letting it go with as little emotional charge as if you were returning a borrowed book or sweater. What they do with it is their business, not yours.
  8. If it feels like there’s any residue of their energy left in your hands, you can release it: shake your hands off, wash your hands in cool water, or whatever works for you.
  9. Take a moment to notice how you feel. Do you feel any different?

I encourage you to start scanning your body and field any time you have encountered the suffering of others, especially those you’re close to. If you notice that you have taken on their suffering–indicated by any feelings of sadness, anxiety, heaviness, etc. that are not specifically related to your own life–try the exercise above.

I hope this is helpful.–Nancy
