Many of the people I make energy medicine for ask me how it will affect them. Because this is a new form of
medicine in our times, there is an aura of mystery around it - especially when it causes illnesses that other
forms of medicine couldn't heal, to disappear. I will try to explain how it works and how it affects the majority
How does Caraf Avnayt's Herbal Energy Medicinework?
By being a good example. It is simply a very stable energy field that is made to resemble how yours would be
if you were completely healthy and well. By introducing it into your energy field twice a day you are simply
coming in contact with a very familiar energy. This inspires our own energy field to behave like itself.
If I put oil on my skin, my skin would do two things almost simultaneously;
1) Absorb the oil and feel soft, lubricated and moisturized
2) Tell the cells beneath not to send up more oil because we have enough already.
If I make a habit out of putting oil on my skin, the cells will assume there's no need to produce oil from within
anymore and my skin will therefore become dry on its own, dependent on the outside source more.
This is why most treatments - medical or natural - cannot work in the long term really. The body being a living
entity tends to react, with either dependency or resistance (like allergies).
Energy Medicine on the other hand, works by inspiration. It simply inspires you to be like yourself - as
opposed to behaving the way you've fallen into the habit of, over the years - in reaction or resistance to the
various situations and medicines you have been exposed to. Your body begins to come back to its own
priorities, wake up sleeping areas, push energy into depleted zones, start communicating from one end to the
It turns out that this method of treatment takes longer to work because it is non-invasive, but its effects are
sure, have no side-effects and we become holistically healthier, and truly peaceful within ourselves because of
How does energy medicine affect us?
While it affects each person differently, the following are the most common effects I've noticed over the years. The positive effects have already been described many times before; for this article I've tried to list the effects that might be difficult to deal with for some;
1) Restlessness and temporary phases of Disorientation or Vertigo
As the energy field 'wakes up' the body has to adapt to this changing energy field and feels stretched and
pressed or 'turned this way and that'. This can be distracting, disorienting and can be accompanied by mood
The body feels thirsty or hungry or craves certain foods. The skin flushes easily and we seem to
be constantly looking for something or the other to eat or drink, or rub on.
The Brain wakes up and processes out stale energy. Dreams may be vivid with people talking clear in staccato
tones, sometimes in languages we understand even though we don't know them.
2) Increase in physical and emotional sensitivity
This sets off a process of emotional clearing where every few days some trauma or the other surfaces and is
dealt with simply by being aware of it. This process can go on for weeks and months depending on how much
has been bottled in over the years.
The body seems stable for most of the time, but has sudden flashes of energy and then hours of going
completely lax and wanting to lie down and do nothing. The lower arms and legs feel like they've been
working too much and want a break. The sense of hearing becomes very sensitive and some have to turn down
the volume all the time because loud noises are too much now.
There's an ongoing inner debate happening in the mind now that results sometimes in wanting to be alone
and not being able to give attention to others for long periods.
3) Heightened memory and awareness of past emotions
People remember things they can hardly believe actually happened to them. Its like they had a 'blind spot'
when it came to this issue - but now it appears quite clearly as a significant issue that needs attention.
The body strains and then relaxes - this happens on and off through the day as we become aware of issues and
release them. More saliva is produced in the mouth, energy 'electricity' increases around the neck and
shoulders and we are a little more prone to being aggresive, vocal and sometimes demanding. This is because
we are just now reacting to things we should have reacted to a long time ago.
The Brain is becoming free of neurological blind spots and this means rushes of energy in areas that were
dormant all along. Sex drive and libido levels rise and fall somewhat unpredictably.
4) Strong vivid or vocal reactions to old situations that have continued for too long
We wonder why we kept quiet so long. How could we! Why didn't we realize that? Friends ask "If you weren't
alright with it, why didn't you say something?" or "I had no clue this was how you were feeling, or this was
what was happening".
The body is now vibrating faster - burning food faster, passing out old or infected cells faster, fighting infection
and so on. Some people develop a temperature higher than normal and some even have to do things to 'cool
off'. Or it can be the other way around. The body feels aches and pains that go away as quickly as they
appeared and we feel a little volatile and moody.
If the issues that arise shock us, we might go into a bit of shock for a few days, emerging a little tired but very
relieved and peaceful deep down.
The nerves of the entire nervous system get energized through this process, setting the tone for nervous
5) Phases of complete 'surrender' and deep sleep increasing with the weeks as emotional clarity sets in
As each deep emotion arises into awareness and is dealt with, sleep comes easier and we can sleep deeper.
Dreams which were vivid and haunting, now are clear crisp and direct. In the day things don't seem to 'float' or
be mysterious anymore. There's a clarity over self, and life in general. Problems don't look as big and daunting
as before. Everything seems cut to size.
Skin cells heal, muscle and tissue wounds as well. Problems with vertigo, body image, and irregular weight
spread balance out. Brain health increases as different parts of the brain connect up. Basic nutrition for the
nerves - like Sodium - are absorbed and processed easily.
Starting with the delicate nerves first the body begins to heal from within.
6) Being OK with conflict - reacting immediately with confidence rather than needing to brood things over first
Because of realizing and letting out old emotions, current conflicts fall into perspective and don't seem so
weighed in on by the past. This makes us able to deal with things on the spot and significantly allows our body
to have more energy to heal, relax and enjoy life.
Various hormonal imbalances get ironed out as the body reacts and relaxes with ease. Elasticity returns to the
muscles - especially the tongue - and the muscles of the reproductive system - as energy is no longer blocked or
restricted. We feel the need for more physical exercise, are more physically active and able.
The Liver begins to balance function, followed by the various organs of the reproductive and digestive system.
This balances blood sugar and pressure levels along with hormone levels.
7) Changing lifestyle and people situations
It becomes obvious that some old habits and situations have to change. Crises sometimes develop because
partners or situations seem hard and unchanging. These usually disappear as soon as others see that this time
you're not going on a whim. You've really changed from deep down, you're serious and you have the self
esteem to stand your own. Life itself changes for you now.
Your spirit feels honored, your body responds with joy, fresh energy everywhere and a new push in the
direction you want to go on.
8) Changing tastes and food patterns
A side-effect of a healing energy field is changing taste and food patterns. Very few of us have diets based on
what we can eat. Much of our diet is made of what we like to eat. This changes now. Food becomes simpler as
we begin to be able to appreciate the basic tastes of staple food like wheat or rice or just potatoes - the tastes we
had become somewhat numb to before.
Our body is awakening - the senses are energized and we begin to notice things in our daily life we never
noticed and reacted to before. Colors, sounds, tastes, smells... Hormonal balance kicks in and we become aware
of our own sexuality, preferences, likes and dislikes. This helps us make clear choices we are sure of and able to
carry through to fruition.
9) Changing house or rooms or redecorating living spaces
Our sense of comfort changes as we realize what vibes with us and what doesn't. Because of being newly
aware, we also find many things we really like and start moving our environment around to include more of
those. Its almost like setting up house all over again - like the first time.
The body can behave a little weirdly here - being hyper energetic for a few hours and then wanting to lie down
and stare at the ceiling for a few hours. Its just adjusting to all the changes. At this time it's important to rest enough
instead of overworking.
10) Changing career or direction
A natural result for most. The new energy must go somewhere, and now that we are more aware of what we
want from life, a direction presents itself.
The body is now functioning holistically - the mind, the heart, the body, and together the spirit. We find out
stomachs digesting food easily and quickly, we have quick reflexes and skin, teeth, hair and bones are being
built up every day - feeling and looking stronger and healthier. Issues with the blood and heart are now
beginning to be resolved. People recovering from cancer find a clear lessening of weakness all over the body.
Its like someone 'grafted in' new skin, new cells everywhere. Tissue everywhere fills up with new cells - which are a little tender and prone to feeling the weather a little more drastically - but which 'tighten up' the body. Face and body shape becomes a little more defined and fixed.
11) Going on a trip 'back to the roots' or somewhere completely new altogether
This is also a natural result of the many changes happening. We want to connect to something just to be more
clear. Or we want to go away for a bit and look at things from afar. Those who don't do either spend a lot of
time just sitting and looking at their own lives and how far they've come.
The body now makes clear demands of some particular sort of food or drink or environment. The craving is
clear and causes us deep pleasure when we finally eat or drink that much longed for thing. Sometimes we end
up watching an old movie or looking up and old friend and so on. A feeling of peace sets in.
In the body, veins and blood vessels everywhere develop wall strength. The metabolism of salts and minerals
like Calcium and Magnesium start balancing out helping many long standing deficiencies and hormonal
imbalance heal. Muscle cells are now rejuvenated and heal.
12) Increased mental ability to focus, find solutions and communicate
Now we feel clear about our direction, we become able to be in the moment, putting all our energy into the
task right in front of us.
The body sends energy to the muscles and the nervous connections between the various internal organs. Pain
and tension in these areas (like the Heart muscle and other organs that are not connected directly to the spinal
cord) is relieved and we are able to take deep long breaths. This results in very deep peaceful sleep. Chronic
nightmares give way to dreamless sleep. Often thirst increases - the body is increasing its cell reproduction and
wants to hold in more nutrients and energy for longer periods.
Problems with water retention, vitamin deficiences and allergies to milk tend to be relieved now. Blood
viscosity (Thickness or thinness) is balanced and varicose vein swelling recedes. Many find their body or facial
shape changing because of fluid distribution balance. Hair becomes easier to manage and skin more reflective
of our inner feelings simply because of blood flow becoming easier.
13) Lessening of 'defensiveness' as acceptance of self sets in
One of the best things in my own experience. We begin to be able to laugh at ourselves, not be so upset or
insulted and this changes our entire lives. At the same time we like our selves more and this transalates into
being able to enjoy little things without constantly worrying about "what this says about me as a person".
The body stops reacting violently to allergents, or even pollution. It simply passes out or rejects things that
don't suit it. A little nutrition goes a long way now and our meals are satisfying, making us free to work for the
next few hours without constantly feeling dissatisfied and distracted. Chronic IBS practically disappears as the
inner lining of the stomach (and other organs as well) heals and balances.
14) Engaging in society or relationships with a new outlook or approach
We become able to see people for who they are, rather than how they can hurt us, or how they can help us.
This makes us able to interact without hurting ourselves or having too many expectations. We have new ways
of looking at things and this makes some people we thought boring seem interesting now. We do the same old
things with a whole new approach.
The body is now attracted to different people and situations. We become able to enjoy our immediate natural
environment - whether thats the clouds passing by or the trees, earth and flowers. We find that we actually
have time to enjoy life and time isn't passing by all that quickly anymore. This is simply the result of a stable
breathing rate caused by a stable energy field.
Lung cells - within and without are filling up and healing now. The throat, thyroid and ear-nose-throat canal
re-balance and heal. The voice, manner of speaking and speed of speech change. Problems with speech are
healed as the parts of the brain that are connected to the tongue and throat are connected up smoothly now.
Hand-Brain co-ordination increases, feet temperature becomes stable and any dysfunction to do with reacting
to stimulation (sexual, temperature regulation etc) all balance out.
15) Helping others become emotionally aware and heal
This is invariably what every healed person does. They help others find heling too whether they try to or not.
It just happens. Families heal, groups of friends heal, slowly the whole world heals.
The body is now distributing energy evenly, changing energy flow with the time of day, time of month and the
seasons in smooth transition. The mind is steady, our sense of self clear and we are able to live and move
without conflict from within. This attracts similar intended people to us and inspires them - and their energy
fields and bodies - to do the same.
Our own emotional awareness helps others become aware too and bring them relief as most of us share similar
Note: Every now and then we have a case where a person goes through their life path backwards after taking
energy medicine, healing themselves in that order. For example, Suz gives me the following time-line;
Age 5 - Restless Legs Syndrome
Age 12 - Acne
Age 18 - Hormonal Imbalance established
Age 19 - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome diagnosed
Age 20 - Heart Pain (Angina), Cardio Myopathy diagnosed
Age 21 - Serious Obesity
Age 24 - Hair Fall (Alopecia totalis), Pigmentation
Age 24-29 Suz tries various holistic treatments, and doesn't have much heart pain (angina) any more, hair fall
has come under control, and skin pigment is somewhat balanced, energy levels are ok too, enough to get
through the day.
Now the main problem - for which she wants treatment is;
Age 29 - Severe weakness and pain around Periods, Imbalanced Sexual energy levels
Now when she takes energy medicine, in the weeks and months following starting the medicine, her energy
field, instead of going straight to being healed, might change slowly by moving back to how it was before she
started falling ill in the first place. So one by one, her hair starts falling drastically one day and then stops the
next. Into her awareness comes the memory of how she felt during the time she has alopecia before and
emotional issues endured during that time get dealt with. And so one by one the old symptoms appear for a
few days to 2/3 weeks at a time, bringing up old issues and then disappearing as the energy field keeps
None of these issues were really taken care of by herbs or other treatments, they were just brought under
control and that's why they never completely disappeared. Now they rise up and then truly disappear. Nearing
the end of her energy field rehabilitation Suz finds she has acne - the same type she had as a 13 year old and
this too goes away in a few days. Then there are periods when she has restless legs and this period too passes
Now her energy field is cleared and needs to be supported in continuing this way, by a healthy lifestyle, simple
tasty food and an environment where love, anger, desire, disgust, rage, peace, joy, and everything part of our
natural human experience can be acknowledged equally and freely with respect.
Animals and plants on energy medicine go through similar experiences but without too much emotional
ado. Animals have a few mood swings, crave strange foods, eat grass and earth with relish and raid the trash
can for junk food sometimes. Then their coats start shining, they sleep in different positions through the night
as their energy field adjusts. They become clearer in their communication with each other and us, engage
others a lot more in playing with them and so on.
As their energy field balances, their body heals and they
become vivacious, have great big appetites and change their ranking in the social order by becoming
competitive (males usually) and bonding with others (females usually).
Plants and trees on energy medicine, shed old leaves, go through a 'static' period of a few weeks when nothing
seems to be happening at all - actually all the activity is going on under ground with their roots at this time.
Then there's a burst of energy - new leaves, new branches and so on. Old trees might suddenly start growing
upward increasing in height as they did when they were babies. This will stop in a month or two. Then they
start spreading out again. Flowering and fruiting happens as normal in season now, with a heightened natural
resistance to pests.
We are trying to get through old emails and letters to publish peoples' experiences healing with energy medicine. Some of these are already up at the following page;
