Energy Healer Shirly Marton Offers Positivity and Balance for Troubling Times

The night of April 18, Iran initiated a massive attack on Israel, launching more than 300 drones, ballistic missiles and cruise missiles at the Jewish state.

As the barrage raced towards Israel, Shirly Marton, a self-described “experienced energy healer,” remained calm and positive because, “When you emit fear, depression or anxiety, the universe doesn’t know how to interpret it, so it continues the vibration you are offering without bias, giving you more of the same.”

In a nation known for the diverse skill sets of its people, Shirly’s is unique. And, like many Israelis, her story begins with the Holocaust. Her maternal and paternal grandparents were survivors. After the war, they immigrated to Israel, where her mother and father were born, married and became parents to Shirly.

At the age of 4, Shirly began seeing auras. “Each of us has a specific energy field, and I could see blocks within the aura. I thought it was normal. When I saw an aura, it wasn’t because a specific event pushed it on me.”

She confided in her mother, but, “in an era without internet, when research wasn’t readily available, she didn’t know how to handle it.” Eventually, Shirly realized that “seeing auras means I can also feel. I can move energy fields just by looking at them. Auras can expand to 8 meters. I would go somewhere and it didn’t feel right, but now I’ve achieved balance.”

“The Universe is Constantly Changing and Shifting”

Over the years, Shirly’s family frequently left and returned to Israel, ultimately a three-continent journey encompassing South Africa, Brazil and Thailand. “I saw villages, remote areas. At the time, I didn’t understand what I experienced. Thoughts were coming in and out, but I didn’t have clarity. When I started meditating, everything unfolded, and I could see the beauty of these places.  Everything amplified – patterns, colors and blocks.”

Shirly’s spiritual journey took on heightened significance with the passing of her father. “I was in my late 20s when he died, and very depressed. I was married, had kids, and doing things I loved, but felt things were lacking, that I was always in a race.”

She was given an Abraham Hicks book on channeling – entering a meditative or trancelike state in order to convey messages from a spiritual guide. Initially putting it aside, she revisited it a year later, and “Everything became stronger and clearer. I had no mentors, I just discovered myself. I’m not the same person I was 10 years ago. The universe is always changing and shifting, and this belief can be passed on to others.”

Those she confided in “told me to stop thinking of myself as a freak and use my abilities to help people. We have brain and heart coherency, and what we emanate comes up like radio frequencies. When you emit fear, depression or anxiety, the universe doesn’t know how to interpret it. I conduct exercises on feeling optimism, and fine-tune people’s energy to help them feel better.”

Preparing to open a client’s energy blocks

“We are Vibrational Beings”

Through her initiative Vibe Heart, Shirly engages clients in Vibe Alchemy, describing it as “a journal to help individuals tune into, and break, old beliefs about themselves. We are vibrational beings,” she emphasizes. “There are specific laws that exist that we haven’t been taught to see.” There’s a caveat, however: “Not everybody is ready. It has to come from within. They have to want change, they have to want a better life.”

Individuals have reached out to Shirly not only in Israel, but from countries in Europe, North America and even the Middle East. “Some look for fast-track answers,” she says, “but this does not work. If you don’t work on yourself and shift habitual thought patterns, you won’t change.”

When someone comes to her, “I don’t ask anything. I want to channel them without bias.” Over the course of a 40-60 minute session, Shirly helps clients “open energy blocks through quantum vibrational energy and visualization techniques, connecting them with their specific energy to manifest the positive changes they desire. To make the most of the experience, it’s important to be open and receptive to the process and actively participate.”

Her tools vary, depending on whether sessions are conducted remotely or in-person, and can range from tarot cards to chakras and frequency forks, which pinpoint and stimulate the body’s energy centers.

Shirly uses, among other tools, frequency forks for stimulating the body’s energy, encouraging it to flow naturally

Maintaining Positivity in a Post-Oct. 7 World

But is positive energy possible in a post-October 7 world? “The first two days were horrendous,” she admits. “It broke me. What I can do is focus on how I react and feel with each situation. I’m the only person who can decide how I feel. You don’t have to suffer – you have to be balanced for those around you, for your family, your kids. If you are suffering, you have nothing to give to somebody else.”

Shirly tells clients, “It’s ok to feel sad and scared, but you can feel better. I want them to climb up and have control over their lives. It doesn’t mean you don’t have love and compassion, but you have to maintain yourself and have balance. You can’t stop living.”

It seems appropriate then, that Shirly resides in Petah Tikva – ‘Opening of Hope’ –where she lives with her husband Yair, an IDF reserve officer called up after October 7, and two children, Liam, 10, and Milan, 7.

Summing it up, Shirly says, “What’s beautiful about this process is that being spiritual is not a religion, it’s a way of life. I haven’t changed the fundamentals of what makes me me. I’m just free and balanced.”
