Why do specific alternative healing methods work with some people and not with others?


„If we want to support our health energetically, we should very well know what we are doing. And then, our work will be at least twice as effective.“   Anja Schwarz

In a holistic approach, we will take into account the body, the soul, the mind, and the spirit and specify into seven categories conform with the well-known seven chakra system. Ultimately, we are going to work with seven aura layers, where all root causes of any trouble, disease, or health issues occur before they manifest in the physical body.

  • The body is divided into the earthbound body (red) and the cosmicbound body (orange). These energy bodies are the inheritance from parents and ancestors. It is the DNA from the generations that forms our bodies in this lifetime.
  • The earthbound and cosmicbound soul are responsible for our karma, which is the amount of all experiences during our earthly being. Before our birth into this life, our soul makes contracts to learn and finish unfinished lessons with soul acquaintances from other lifetimes here on earth.
  • The earthbound and cosmicbound mind are connected to our individualism in the present life. They are influenced by society and the environment. The mind should be free to help us to fulfill our life purpose. Limiting believes that we pick up during growing up or life experiences will limit us from our subconscious.
  • The spirit brings the body, soul, and mind together and forms our protection. It is the essence of this lifetime. Balancing the spirit means balancing body, soul, and mind to get the best picture of yourself in this lifetime.

Specific healing methods work mainly on certain layers, which are body, soul, mind with their earthbound and their cosmicbound parts, and the spirit.

If the basis of the problem is not situated on the same layer as the healing method is working, it might just not work at all. This means that you should be aware of what to do and what works best.

This list is a guideline for the layers. It does not, however, mean that the method only works on the mentioned layer.  It might sometimes work individually on more than one specific layer.
