Tuned-in Youth Adam Dreamhealer
As an energy healer, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many people of all ages. It is particularly encouraging working with young people as they are often acutely aware of their own energy system.
Being 21 years-old myself, it is easy to relate to youth who contact me after reading my books or attending workshops. Our awareness of our energy is not unique — but our acknowledgement of it and speaking about it is — at least in our culture. Youth are sometimes cited as being more spiritually aware and in touch with their innate abilities and connections. But perhaps they just feel more able to freely express themselves.
Rolling Stone magazine published an article “The Boy With the Magic Touch” about my work as a healer with Dr. Edgar Mitchell, an American astronaut, and Ronnie Hawkins, a famous rock star. As anticipated, I received thousands of responses. What we didn’t expect was hundreds of emails from teenagers and 20-year-olds telling me about their personal energy experiences. Many had never told a soul about them for fear of being ridiculed. Some had confided in a parent, only to discover that they were judged and mocked, or dismissed entirely. Reactions of others are sometimes fear-based as a lack of understanding leads to an agitated, uncomfortable state, and point-of-view.
I heard from others who had experienced healing, both as healer and healee. It was a profound event, yet one that many felt unable to discuss with their peers, parents or anyone at all. Some expressed their relief in finally being able to correspond with someone who really understood.
At high school, there is intense pressure to conform. The biggest fear of most students, is being different, or being seen as different. What is viewed as “paranormal” is to be hidden; or exposed at your own peril. I learned that being a rock star is cool: Healing one isn’t. So I too kept quiet about it, at least throughout my high school years. Maintaining the status-quo is very restrictive and narrow in its perspective. In elementary school my class was shown a film starring skeptics who debunked paranormal events. It was clear that energy awareness and energy healing fell into this unacceptable category. No wonder many young people keep quiet about what we are so naturally aware of.
Now that I am at University, most people are too busy to care. I am constantly surprised that some of the biggest and strongest athletes I have known, understand the importance of energy fields,
and are interested in what I do.
I have also found that the internet makes it is easier to find out about energy healing and make connections to others with similar interests. Youth is tuned into these technological advances and this can validate that what they are experiencing is “normal”. As babies, we were totally connected with our mother’s energy system, which is an important part of our survival mechanism. As we develop, we are mindful of other’s energy directly affecting us. This web involves more energy connections as our world of relationships grows. Every energy has an effect on our energy – we are all intertwined at our most basic and natural level. Children know this and youth must stay in tune with it.
Positive thoughts and intentions affect us all far beyond our conscious awareness. Acknowledge this connection to everything and the possibilities for the future are limitless.
