The end of the year has come. For some people, it is a powerful time to set intentions for the new calendar year, take part in rituals with friends and family, or simply sign off from work and reset. 

While the turn of the new year won’t automatically render you a new person, there are some wholesome ways to harness positive energy for the new year that can definitely feel magical. 

Let’s start with a definition. When you ‘harness’ energy, you are bringing it under your control to use it. You can harness energy through specific energy healing, exercise and general physical movement, but also deep life change therapy. You don’t have to feed into the hyper-materialised ‘new year, new me’ way of thinking to bring about real change. Here are 4 ways that you can harness positive energy into the new year and beyond.

  1. Try forms of Energy Healing

Energy Healing is a practice that people are turning to for natural pain relief, as well as rebalancing, repairing and restoring the body and mind. At Anahata, we provide:

Reiki – A natural energy healing therapy that brings the mind, body, heart and soul in to balance and harmony. Reiki can also be performed as distant healing and is available remotely during a lockdown.

Sekhem – An energy healing that originated in the temples of ancient Egypt, rediscovered in 1980.

Shamanic Healing and Soul Retrieval – A combination of Sacred Drum Healing, and Soul Retrieval and Journeywork. These different tools are used to rebalance the energy field of your body.

These therapies are great ways to harness energy for the new year, as they can help you to feel emotionally balanced when feeling low or unmotivated. It also helps to clear the mind, which can become oversaturated with thoughts and responsibilities towards the end of the year. Scientific research studies show there is strong evidence to support forms of energy healing as a therapy to reduce depression, anxiety and improve mood.

  1. Nourish yourself

Although it can be difficult towards the end of the year, it is still important to fuel your body and eat healthily as much as possible. What with Christmas and new years celebrations, it is almost too easy to head straight for the quick sugar fixes, but in the long term, these deplete your energy levels and lower your mood, so they will only make matters worse. Have as many fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds as you can, and drink water regularly. Foods that are rich in vitamin C and zinc are also great boosters for your immune system. Vitamin D3 and K2 are also very beneficial for the immune system. 

We offer nutritional therapy at Anahata. Our practitioners look at each person individually, sometimes assessing their state of health or imbalance with a test or screening machine, and then recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes.

You can book a consultation with our two nutritionists, Emily Rose Croucher and Rachel Robertson. Follow the links to read more about them, and if you think nutritional therapy could be for you, give us a call on 01273 698687.

  1. Deep life change therapy

Consider booking a life-coaching session at Anahata, which can propel you into the new year with improved clarity, direction and sense of purpose. 

A coaching conversation is very different from other types of conversations and produces very different results. Coaching conversations can open up opportunities, mindsets and boost motivation in a way you might not have thought possible. With the support of a coach, it is remarkable what can be achieved in often a very short space of time.

Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT) is another powerful form of deep life therapy that we offer at Anahata. IEMT remediates problem states, in particular your feelings. IEMT can also be applied to areas of identity. It is a psychotherapy model that aims to reduce intense negative emotional states. 

IEMT can be used to track a current negative emotion back to its original imprinting experience, and, by using a therapeutic series of eye movements, resolve and clear the loaded emotions associated with the original and current events.

Head to our website to book an appointment with our IEMT therapist, Rowan Hasson. We have also shared some IEMT resources that you can access for free. Click here for more. 

  1. End the year with a deep stretch yoga practice 

What we love about yoga is that you don’t need any particular skills, experience or fitness level to do it. Yoga is designed to be taken at your own pace and you can engage with each movement up to the level of your ability and allow it to develop over time.

We’ve all spent an unusual amount of time indoors this year. For some people, sitting at their desks every day was the most routine thing they did. You may not think that sitting down for hours puts a strain on your body, but prolonged sitting can lead to high blood pressure, increased cholesterol and high blood sugar, and can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Sitting down for long periods also causes certain muscles to atrophy and tendons to shorten, which can cause a range of issues and lead to chronic pain.

A stretch-based yoga practice (like Hatha yoga) would be a meditative treat for your body as you block out time (whether 10 minutes or 90) to be with your body and breath.
