Terri van Ommen divides her time between living on the Azorean island of São Miguel and being in The Netherlands. Over the years she has immersed herself in different alternative modalities. She has also worked with patient groups within allo-pathic Western medicine. Her life's purpose was revealed to her when she walked the Incan Medicine Wheel. Terri is initiated in the Healing traditions of the Incan Medicine People (The Q'eros) in Peru. She still loves to gather with them and deepen her exploration of their beautiful tradition. Terri’s work includes working proactively with ADHD / PDD-NOS diagnosed and traumatized children, she is an experienced expert in mind / body, man and environment. Besides her Inca Healing practice she also facilitates workshops and trainings at home and abroad.
Energy Medicine does not treat diseases or diagnoses, but looks to the distortions within the energy field. It focuses on healing and can lead to extraordinary results. Healing often brings a cure, a cure rarely healing. Our body has a unique healing power that can be disturbed by an imbalance between body and mind or between man and environment. Energy Medicine can be viewed as natural medicine concerned with health education. Healing comes from the belief that illness is a deviation from health, where one wants to return as soon as possible to the situation before the onset of the disease, an intervention by medication, surgery etc;. Healing's approach is different and sees illness as an imbalance between man and environment and / or body and mind. It's primary function is to create a path to improved health and fulfillment of the whole being. The road to recovery is used to create new opportunities. Healing is a journey.
A healer goes first through a healing himself. In addition, through initiations potential areas in which each of us present will be awakened. This changes the perception, which enables the Energy Healer to perceive differently. He/she perceives with his senses and looks as if with the eyes closed. He does not listen to the story or the diagnosis, but feels where the energy is. He perceives denser energy in the energy body, which is just outside your physical body. For the Healer everything is energy and everything has a voice. By changing his perception his world will be changed. Observation focuses the intention, the spiritual will, spiritual will focus energy and energy focus the matter. The Energy Healer is interested in energy perception. Here in the West, we are interested in the will and matter, and we change the world with our will by changing the world outside of us. That does not work so well, because that keeps you trapped in this reality and focus of your stay subject to cause and effect. This keeps the history repeat itself. The Energy Healer calls the invisible world from his heart and aims for healing.
The techniques which are used are very powerful and sophisticated that users have access to energetic blockages, the (sub) conscious and such DNA. The DNA imprint is like a scratch in a glass that attracts dirt, our construction. But our skin renews within a month, every year you get new cells and every seven years every molecule of your body is renewed (except a few in your guts and brains). Why would your imprint (DNA) not be able to change? This way of Energy Healing assumes that this is possible.
Everything has a voice for an Energy Healer, so is the subconscious. If we endured severe trauma - for example the loss of a loved one, abuse, accident or something similar - a soul part retreats into the subconscious, we call it soul loss. It is almost always possible to access the subconscious of the client and obtain much information. But most important is: he can take the soul part that has withdrawn back to the here and now. Soul loss can for example be associated with anorexia, bulimia. There are techniques for energy in motion, to combat (smoking) addictions, take energy away that does not belong to a person and also to guide people in the transition to the other side. It is to identify opportunities to heal.
Awareness is also healing and it is therefore very important to understand why. What makes you tired, sad, heavy, depressed? What will you encounter? How is it for you as a person? At work, in your relationship? It is important to get everything out of the way that blocks your healing. If you look at symptoms as chronic fatigue, depression, burnout and unexplained symptoms, then there is an imbalance, an imbalance which the self-healing ability of our body is blocked. By paying attention to your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects to use the road to recovery for new opportunities and to get more health. Healing is about more health and performance of the whole man. It is so important to know what your actual desires are, why are you here, what do you really want.
During one of my studies in Peru, a medicine woman told me: "You come here to learn what you've lost," and this felt so true. Many of us have lost the link to our (own) nature. Deep within us, is all knowledge, our inner knowing. The intuition is like a wise old woman who advises and answers all our questions. We’ve just unlearned to get our answers from nature to retrieve and listen to our intuition. In this world of reason many people are afraid to feel. As your body remains tired, sore muscles or your head stays heavy, ask yourself sometimes if you do what you want deep inside. Try to feel if you are in harmony with yourself. Harmony between body and mind and / or between you and your environment. Go into nature and open your senses, you become aware of what the paths, trees, flowers, clouds and animals tell you. Nature always gives answers. Try to find your way to your soul, there's the pot of gold 'as at the end of the rainbow'.
