Figure 8s

I came across Figure 8 energy years ago when I first read Donna Eden’s book Energy Medicine. I then learned a great deal more about it when I went through her certification program. Figure 8s were everywhere in my studies as they impact each of the energy systems of the body. They are magical and essential to our health and wellbeing. Anyone can learn how to work with them.

There are Figure 8 patterns all throughout the body. At their tiniest they find themselves within our cells and DNA with much bigger versions within the workings of each hemisphere of the brain controlling the opposite side of the body. They are essential to our auras and help keep our immune systems strong. Healthier people have more Figure 8 patterns within them.

When I had my practice, I always finished my sessions by sweeping my hands in big Figure 8 movements over my clients as a way to bring the energy work to a close. I did this because Figure 8s are all about weaving connections and creating networks throughout and around the body. I also used Figure 8s to hook each chakra up to the next as a way to give that system a big boost.

You can activate these patterns in your own body by tracing small and large Figure 8s on yourself. Even doodling Figure 8s on a piece of paper will help strengthen the patterns within you. You can dance around a room swinging your arms in Figure 8s or simply sit still and twirl your fingers the same way. You can also encourage a better connection between you and another by flowing Figure 8s between the both of you. Give it a try. See what you think!
