SimplyHealed FAQ

Carolyn Cooper, the founder of SimplyHealed has answered the most common questions about Energy Healing. Here are her FAQ:

How does Energy Therapy differ from traditional therapy?

Generally in “talk” therapy there is a lot of going over the same issues, which can take lots of time and many sessions. When working with energy, you don’t have to relive every detail of a past trauma in order to release it from your system. Your inner wisdom already knows all the details; we just need to find the emotion(s) held with that memory. Through certain techniques, those emotions (anger, fear, betrayal, etc.) are released from the body AND the energy field. This doesn’t erase the memory of the incident, but releases the emotional potency of it, so it is no longer a barrier in your life. Energy Therapy gets to the root of the problem on an energetic and emotional level effectively and efficiently.

How long is a private session?

The session is 50 minutes.

Do I lie on a massage table?

No, we both sit in chairs that face each other. For long distance phone or skype work, I’m at my desk, but you can be anywhere you are comfortable.

Is an Energy Therapy session like a psychic reading?

No! Please do not come to an Energy appointment expecting to get specific answers to future events in your life. Healing is about clearing blocks, traumas, phobias, anything holding you back from who you can become. Once the negative self-talk is gone, you will experience more peace and clarity. Then you are more focused and trusting of yourself to make YOUR OWN decisions for your journey through life.

Because I have been doing this work for so many years, I have learned skills that help me pick up information from the energy field. However, this information is used to zero in on where and what the blocks are that need to be released. I truly believe it is in clients’ best interests to get connected with their own intuitive wisdom and then trust that wisdom to bring them the answers for their own life.

Do I have to believe in this for it to work on me?

No, you can keep your skepticism and it will still work! Your body’s intuitive wisdom will process and benefit from what it knows is for your highest good, whether or not your conscious mind thinks it’s “a little out there.” And remember, your higher self will automatically “veto” anything that it deems is not in your best interest. The integrity of the SimplyHealed™ method never allows anything to be integrated without first checking if it’s in your best interest. Of course, you can consciously block any of it from being accepted, if you are happy and comfortable living in a lower vibration.

Can these techniques be used on animals?

Absolutely! Animals are very easy to work on, because they are so open. A friend of mine often works on horses; I work on my cats, and have also had excellent results with many of my clients’ dogs.

How young of a child can these techniques be used on?

Because the SimplyHealed Method® is so gentle, and can do no harm, there is no age limit. I have often worked on babies still in the womb, which I love because their energy is so sweet. For example, one baby I worked on (two weeks before his birth) was breech. Generally speaking, breech babies have some kind of fear and they want to stay up near Mama’s heart. By talking to his spirit, and doing the integration proxy on his mom, he let go of that fear and within minutes turned to where he needed to be.

I work on children a lot. When I see frustrated parents of out-of-control toddlers on TV talk shows, I just want to go to their homes and work on those little ones! Once they get that anger and whatever other emotions they are carrying released, they become who they REALLY are: happy and teachable. Parents, if there is disharmony in your home, but you think it doesn’t affect the kids, think again! Vibrationally, they ARE picking it up. Also, children being born at this point in time are the “chain-breaking generation.” They are carrying a lot of tendencies from the family line in their genes. For the child’s highest good, any negative generational issues need to be cleared.

What is meant by “clearing generational issues”?

Just as we are recipients of our ancestors’ physical DNA, we also carry their emotional DNA. Many times we are upset by something and think to ourselves, “Why does that trigger me so much?” Well, good news! Sometimes it’s not even our issue! If we have an ancestor who went through trauma, or had a particular negative belief pattern and we inherited that emotional tendency, then when we are presented with certain life situations it seems to be magnified for us. For example, ever since I can remember, I had a huge fear of taxidermied animal heads. (A strange phobia, I know). I could not go into a room with a head mounted on the wall. Once I was introduced to generational healing, I knew it was something I was carrying from an ancestor. Actually, in my case, it was two separate ancestors. It was a simple procedure to clear those from my field, and now I no longer have any problems with that. In fact, last summer I went to a family reunion at a lodge, and my mom could not believe I was spending time with my cousins in the “deer head room”!

I recently found out that another one of my cousins use to also have that very same intense fear. Then, without knowing that I had energetically cleared it, she told me, “One day I walked into a place with deer heads, and noticed that I wasn’t afraid, and in fact, I felt totally at ease in there.” That is because when doing generational work, it clears anyone in the lineage who carries that same issue. So by clearing generational issues, you are also helping many relatives you are not even aware of.

Generational issues are very common in this work. They can be attached to a variety of different issues. Common issues that I always see carried in the family lines are depression, addictions, abuse, and negative financial beliefs.

I have done this ancestral clearing work intuitively for many years, and I am happy to say that much research is now being done on this topic. It is scientifically known as BIOGENETIC DECODING.

How is this Healing Work done long-distance?

Because energy is not limited by time or distance, the work is just as powerful whether I’m working with someone one on one or speaking over the telephone. When doing phone sessions, I simply muscle-test on myself to get the feedback from the client’s energy. Likewise, I do the integration on myself for the client.

How do you dedicate to someone?

Dedication is similar to doing a long-distance phone session. First, permission must be asked of the person’s energy before beginning work. Once they give a strong response through muscle testing, then information is gathered the same way as with any session, except it’s all through spirit-to-spirit communication. Once the integration is done, I release the dedication to them, to accept it of their own free will. There is absolutely no manipulation involved, since it is an energetic gift offered to them, and their subconscious can choose which parts (if any) of it they want to accept or not. It is like saying a prayer for someone and sending it out to them—it is always up to them what they will do with it. Because most people’s inner wisdom is always drawn to a higher level, it’s rare that someone will not give energetic permission to be worked on. And if they give permission that means their subconscious understands it. I have seen this process bring amazing results when working with clients by sending a dedication of peace and love to an estranged family member.

How soon will I notice results?

The energy shifts immediately with the integration, like a light switching on in a dark room. Most people report that they feel much “lighter” after the session. That is because they literally are! Emotions such as depression, anger, guilt, etc. have a very low vibration. Once released, the void where those emotions were formerly held is automatically filled with light, truth, love, forgiveness and joy—which are all very high vibrationally.

With some issues, you will immediately notice they are no longer there because you are not worried about them anymore. That worry is replaced by peace. With other issues, although the energetic changes are in place, you may not be in a situation where you recognize the change right away. For example, if I work on someone to increase their self-confidence in a particular situation, and then they are not in that situation again until a month later, they probably won’t notice the change until that next month when that situation arises. But in the meantime, they usually enjoy greater confidence in other areas of their life as well.

I have noticed that in my own life sometimes when I have cleared issues, I don’t realize the amount of positive impact it has had on my life until much later when I look back and see all the good changes that have occurred since clearing the negative and re-framing it as a positive. So, in many cases, the fact that you are no longer bothered by certain things makes it easy to simply forget that you previously had a problem with it.

Can Energy Therapy help me lose weight?

Yes! Many people put on weight as a protection. When you clear your fears and/or past traumas that contributed to the weight gain in the first place, the need for the extra weight is no longer there. Pay attention to your self-talk: “I can’t seem to drop weight,” “I am so fat,” “I’m not good enough,” “I don’t have time to exercise,” etc. Whether true or not, we allow these beliefs into our subconscious mind, then our behaviors align themselves with our beliefs, even if we are not consciously aware of it. That is why so many people gain the weight back each time they lose it—although their body has changed, they still have those unworthy beliefs lodged deep in their subconscious mind.

By working with your body’s energy system, we can reprogram those negative inner statements to positive ones such as, “It is safe for me to be thin,” “I am worthy of success,” “I love my healthy body,” “I am fit and strong,” “I find joy in taking time for exercise,” etc. Now, with your behaviors lining up with those positive thoughts, of course your body will drop the excess pounds!

I had a routine surgery several months ago. Since then, I just can’t seem to get my energy level back up to par. I’m tired of being tired! Can Healing help me with this?

Energy can easily be disconnected during surgery. Whether the procedure is elective or not, it is still a “trauma” to the body. Energy Healing can reconnect things energetically, as well as release the trauma of the surgery from your system. It can restore energies that have become weak, disturbed or out of balance. This alone can make a big difference in your level of energy. Also, it is wise to release the trauma from previous accidents, etc. I have worked on many people who were still carrying anger at the driver who hit their car in an accident years earlier. The anger is usually held in the area(s) of the body that was injured at the time and where they are still having pain. If there is anger lodged in any area, it blocks the healing energy from flowing freely in that space.

I don’t have any specific issues to clear; I’m just feeling a bit off balance, and out of sorts. How could a session help me?

Everyone’s session fits what they need. Some clients come with a list of things they are struggling with, from health, to relationships, to money and are already aware of the blocks they want to have released. Others just feel a bit “off,” or perhaps run down and want to get to the emotional root of the problem, but haven’t been able to figure out the source on their own. There are several methods I use to find blocks so we can let them go and get the energy flowing freely again.

At the beginning of a session, I test your energy to determine the highest priority for us to begin with for that session. (Sometimes it’s not what your conscious mind thinks). For example, to find where we need to begin, I may test to work on connections, chakras, aura, meridians, something the client has to say, etc. Sometimes it is simply to let the client speak their truth, and the session just flows on from there. So whether you come prepared with a list, or just want an energy tune-up, your energy knows what it is you are in need of and will lead us there.

Will clearing my energy have an effect on my athletic performance?

Of course! When you are “hooked up” energetically, your entire system works better. Communication pathways throughout the body are then clean, clear and vibrant, helping to promote peak performance. In addition, removing from your subconscious mind any lingering doubts about your athletic ability can make a huge difference in your performance. Speaking from experience, I know I would not be able to train for and complete triathlons without the help of energy clearing. By using SimplyHealed™ I have been able to help golfers, basketball players, swimmers, football players, runners, dancers, wrestlers, etc.

I want to learn more about muscle-testing. What do you recommend?

The study of Kinesiology first received scientific attention in the 1960s. Dr. George Goodheart, DC, pioneered the specialty he called Applied Kinesiology after finding that benign physical stimuli—for instance, beneficial nutritional supplements—would increase the strength of certain indicator muscles, whereas hostile stimuli would cause those muscles to suddenly weaken. The implication was that at a level far below conceptual consciousness, the body “knew” and through muscle testing was able to signal what was good and bad for it.

In the ‘70s, Dr. John Diamond refined this specialty into a new discipline he called Behavioral Kinesiology. He discovered that indicator muscles would strengthen or weaken in the presence of positive or negative emotional and intellectual stimuli as well as physical stimuli. A smile will make you test strong, while a scowl will make you test weak.

In 1975 the well-known psychiatrist and physician David R. Hawkins began research that has taken Dr. Diamond’s work several steps further, through the discovery that muscle testing can reflect a human’s capacity to differentiate not only positive from negative stimuli, but truth from falsity. This phenomenon occurs independently of the test subject’s own opinion or knowledge of the topic, and the response has proven cross-culturally valid in any population and consistent over time.

The two books I would highly recommend on this subject are:

Your Body Doesn’t Lie by John Diamond, MD
Power vs. Force by David R. Hawkins, MD, PhD
