Wanda Buckner is the perfect guide to exploring energy work for people and animals. Written for the layman, Choosing Energy Therapy draws readers into the world of energy healing. Buckner describes the theory behind energy healing and its basic concepts: all healing is self-healing and a disturbance in the body creates a disturbance in the body's energy field that can be corrected through intervention. Healers clear and balance the energetic field to support self-healing. Healing occurs on all levels--physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Multiple stories of human and animal healing bring the concepts alive. Buckner relates human and animal experiences of the possibilities and limitations of energy healing, healing into death, and the difference between being healed and being cured. Buckner's Haystack Theory of Healing recognizes that everything we do contributes to our healing and the healing of our animals. Together, these efforts result in "the straw that healed the camel's back," the tipping point to wellness. Energy healing can be one of these straws or the final straw. People and animals use energy healing prior to the need for medical intervention, during medical treatment, and at end of life to maintain quality of life and comfort. The final section of the book helps readers define their criteria for selecting a healing method and practitioner. Personal motives for wanting to heal others are examined. Chapter subheadings allow readers to begin their exploration at any point. Questions for reflection at the end of each chapter encourage readers to examine and refine their beliefs. The annotated Resources and Recommended Reading list includes content and quotation references and suggestions for additional exploration.
