A question been asked to me by a client after our Binabaylan Hilot Session, and her question is that do Hilot absorb negative energy from the client? And my response is No we do not absorb negative energy but we transform the negative energy into a positive energy.
I believe as a Hilot, we heal people because we are a vessel of overflowing positive energies from the Divine. As this energy overflow, we transfer it to our client that has negative energy and fill it up until the client will spill over all negative energies and be filled with positive energies that a Hilot has.
Another way the Hilot absorb the negative energy of the client is through the use of Banana Leaf during the Pagsasala (Filtering) Ritual.
