Is Your Rapid Image Cycling Working?
Hello, fellow energy healing enthusiasts! I’m thrilled to have you here as we explore the amazing world of energy healing, specifically, how to tell if anything is happening when practicing William Bengston’s Rapid Image Cycling technique. I’m Suzanne Clegg, and like you, I find alternative healing practices fascinating. They never ceass to amaze me! Every time they work I get happy! Whether you are already familiar with energy healing or just curious, join me in exploring some ideas about Image Cycling.
Observation-Based versus Faith-Based Healing:
As a health professional (acupuncturist, dietitian, herbalist, sound healer), a scientist, and someone often sought out as a last resort for help, I understand the importance of honesty and avoiding false hope. My clients may hopes for improvement, but I approach healing by observing its effects. I watch how my clients respond, comparing their progress to the recoveries I’ve witnessed before. Rather than relying on hope, I advocate for an observant perspective. While faith in higher powers can be beneficial for staying committed, I encourage faith in our own capacity to understand what truly works for us, instead of simply wishing for a magical solution. Observational thinking keeps us grounded, avoiding deceptive magical thinking, while paradoxically allowing the miraculous to unfold!
What to Observe:
In my Octave Resonance Healing Approach™, I divide the human experience into four octaves or levels: Physical, Life Force, Emotions/Images, and Spiritual. These levels can help us assess the progress of a treatment program. (You’ll find an entire chapter dedicated to this in my book, “There Is Another Way: Energy Medicine for Pets with Cancer,” available on Amazon.) While Rapid Image Cycling might seem straightforward, without knowing what to observe, you can easily become lost, lose interest, and not achieve the desired results. Understanding what to observe prevents you from feeling bound to follow the technique exactly, promoting innovative and playful approaches instead. With a clear grasp of what to look for, Image Cycling becomes engaging, creative, and enjoyable.
My experience with the Bengston Method:
I have been using the Bengston Method since 2009. I think that I’m a decent “healer,” my true expertise lies in my clinical experience. Knowing what to observe allows me to suggest dynamic modifications to the technique, infusing it with vitality and innovation rather than letting it remain stagnant. As a practitioner of Chinese medicine, I learned how to diagnose and facioitate healing without relying on machines. I observed things like tongue condition, pulse, elimination, sleep, periods, pain, digestion, emotional state, mental state — a holistic approach. Over 40 years of acupuncture practice honed my observational skills significantly. I developed a medical intuition–a type of clairvoyance that is also very helpful. My patients don’t require my extensive experience. They benefit from my guidance as I provide a plethora of observation ideas. Together, we discover how Rapid Image Cycling can work effectively for them.
The Playful Exploration:
During a session, we may experiment with different mindsets, thoughts, emotions, postures, temperatures, foods, and mre. Each change may elicit a response from our Image Cycle. Altering our approach to Image Cycling and observing shifts in body and mind can turn the process into an engaging and lively experience. This shift happens once you’re aware of what to look for and how to consciously connect with the process.
Subtle Energy Sensations:
Many people claim they cannot perceive subtle energy sensations. They want me to use my clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience to do the work for them. I usually disagree that they cannot sense what they need to perceive. I use my intuitive abilities to tune them into their own ability to perceive their own process. My goal is to guide people away from magical thinking, to encourage them to observe and embody their healing journey. Our bodies communicate if we listen attentively.
Try This Exercise:
Let’s do a fun exercise to explore how you can observe changes in your body and mind during Rapid Image Cycling. Imagine a rapidly spinning disk of light behind your head, rotating even faster than a bicycle or a blender. Notice your body’s response. Now, stop the spinning visualization and observe any changes. Alternate between spinning and stillness, paying attention to how your body feels each time.
Many people feel lighter and happier when spinning, and some even experience pain reduction. Others feel more present and open during the exercise. There are so many things to experience, and each person is unique! What did you feel during the exercise?
The Next Step:
Once you’re able to differentiate the effects of Image Cycling in your body, the next step involves letting go and simply being present in the moment (reading, thinking, talking, laughing), all while continuing to cycle. In this state, your focus on cycling shifts. It becomes background activity. Even this “background cycling” has observable characteristics. These traits often shift, change, surprise, and delight, yet they remain observable.
Observing energy healing in your body and mind is crucial to understanding if it’s working for you. It’s not hard if you know what to look for, and it can lead to significant strides in your healing journey.
I wish you an engaging and enlightening experience with Image Cycling, one that awakens your natural healing potential!
