 An energy healer can incorporate the use of feathers during healing sessions in various ways. 

The healer may breathe through the feather during a toning session. Chanting sounds through a feather on client's body can elicit a powerful healing.

Feathering is a technique used in energy healings. The auric field can be cleansed by sweeping a bird's wing, a handmade feather whisk, or a single feather in the space surrounding an individual. Feathering also introduces the element of air into the healing space. Feathers are our connection to the "air" forces; air being one of the four elements. The remaining three elements are water, fire, and earth. 

Different types of feathers are used depending on the need of the client.

  • Turkey feathers (see Turkey Totem) are wonderful for cleansing auras, the bowels, and the entire digestive tract.
  • Cardinal feathers (see Cardinal Totem) gives vitality to blood conditions, boosts energy levels in anemia sufferers.
  • Down feathers are good for healing skin conditions, stimulating the sense of touch, and quiets mental chatter.
  • Good dreams would pass through the Native American dreamcatcher and drift through the feathers onto the sleeper.
