"Energy is action and movement. All action is movement and all action is energy.
All desire is energy. All feeling is energy. All thought is energy. All living is energy. All life is energy. If that energy is allowed to flow without any contradiction, without any friction, without conflict, then that energy, is boundless, endless. When there is no friction there are no frontiers to energy. It is friction which gives energy limitations. So, having once seen this, why is it that the human being always brings friction into energy?
Why does he create friction in this movement which we call life? Is pure energy, energy without limitations just an idea to him? Does it have no reality"?

Energy Healing is open to those with blockages of the mind, body, and/or spirit to overcome. We all have them somewhere. This swap also welcomes those who consciously practice the prevention of disease. Feel free to join from where you are.
Wish for gifts based on various approaches that touch on healing. Are you a Reiki practitioner? Do you enjoy a relaxing massage? Have you studied Ayurveda? Does your medicine consist of herbs/plants? Do you start the day with a Sun Salutation? There are plenty of other paths that support wellness and open living as well. Healthy eating, mindful breathing, therapy crafting, etc.
The one theme that could be iffy for some is of course, religion. While I'm not opposed to religious items making their way on anyone's wishlist, others may have reservations about it. Please make sure you have a fair number of non-religious options for your partner to feel inspired by as well.
There is no point system that must be followed this round, just let your ideas flow. This worked seemingly well for the Herbalism and Yoga swaps I've organized and I'd like to try to keep it open to accomodate possible budget and crafting time limitations. Be sure to pay attention to your partner's questionnaire though and to dedicate your full potential and energy to each gift you can offer. While efforts can be made between partners to avoid a largely unbalanced exchange, it is important to understand and accept that such an outcome may occur regardless.
One other point I'd like to make clear is that your primary/"big'" gift must
A- crafted. You are free to purchase extras but your main gift must be created by you.
B- created specifically for this swap and specifically for your partner. This is obviously difficult to enforce but please wait until you know who your partner is and take the time to stalk him/her! You'll be all the more thoughtful about your gift if you do. With the freedom in the amount you craft and a month and a half to create the main gift, this seems like a reasonable request to make.
If you would like to participate, complete and submit the following questionnaire to me, dreadlocklove. Please include “Energy Healing” in the subject line.Questionnaire
