My experience with theta healing

March 17, 2015

I hesitated a lot before writing this post. I wasn’t sure what the reaction would be as the last thing I would want would be to upset readers. However I’ve come to the realization that when blogging, it comes with the territory.

When my friend Tara suggested we try out a theta healing workshop at the Life n One center in Dubai, I immediately said yes. It was free, and I love trying new things. I’ve even tried hypnotherapy, although that’s a whole different subject.

We arrived at this beautiful, calm, and serene venue. I loved it immediately. Everyone was relaxed and smiling and I could see people sitting on mats, holding each other’s hands gently whispering to each other. “Mmmm” I thought, “this looks interesting”.

We waited for about 30min in the lovely garden cafe where everyone seemed to greet each other with a closed eyes hug. It was finally our turn. Tara went off her way and I went mine. My trained theta practitioner, let’s call him Jack, started off by explaining what theta healing constitutes in a nut shell.  He actually looked quite amused that I showed up to the workshop with zero knowledge on the matter.

Theta healing basically looks for the causes of blockages to a person’s natural functioning, such as their belief system, repressed emotions, fears, traumas, etc. These blockages limit the flow of infinite spiritual energy. You work with a theta practionier to clarify, energize, and focus on your goals and desires. Theta healing takes its name from the theta brainwave, which vibrates at four to seven cycles per second. This is the same state that you are in at night when first dreaming and in this state you have easy access to the contents of your subconscious. Jack also said you are then more connected to the life energy of the universe.

Yes, I know, this may sound strange to many. I myself looked at him very perplexed after this explanation. Jack then asked me if I wanted to do a session. I looked around, everyone seemed to be doing it, I didn’t drive all the way not to try it out. I told him let’s do it. Now what follows will seem airy fairy but don’t judge me for trying. I closed my eyes and Jack took hold of my hands. He repeated certain words to “cleanse my energy” and proceeded to look for areas of blockage within me by asking a few questions. It felt more like a mini dialogue with a complete stranger with my eyes closed. The whole thing lasted 20min and I remember constantly thinking “and then what”.  Once finished, I truly didn’t feel much different. Tara on the other hand said she felt so calm and relaxed. Maybe I didn’t do it right.

I would strongly advise to do thorough research before undergoing any healing therapies. Unlike me. I went in blind. Although theta healing is definitely not my cup of tea, I did learn a lot from the experience. I never knew about this world of energy healing therapies. There are so many out there, each serving a different purpose. Whether you believe in them or not, this probably won’t be the last time either you or I hear about them.
