For thousands of years, long before Western scientists discovered the laws of quantum physics, Eastern medicine recognised energy as the principal factor contributing to health and wellbeing.
Energy healing modalities such as acupunture, reiki, polarity healing and cranio sacral therapy, have been adopted in the West for the past few decades, either as an alternative to traditional Western medicine, or to complement it - as in integrative medicine.
Why Energy Healing?
1. The aim of energy healing is to completely release trauma, and thereby cure the patient of the cause of dis-ease. Traditional western (allopathic) medicine, on the other hand, aims to combat disease by the use of remedies, drugs or surgery, thereby treating the symptoms of an illness, not the cause.
2. Energy healing takes a holistic approach, meaning that it takes the whole person into account by considering the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of an individual. We are multi-dimensional beings with conscious and unconscious aspects, and with systems that are interconnected. If one aspect of a human being is changed, it has an effect on the whole. Western medicine, by isolating the malady itself, does not take this viewpoint, with the result that it often has to treat the secondary effects of treatment and thereby compound drug prescriptions.
3. Energy healing is non-invasive and does not have secondary effects. According to conservative estimates published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, illness resulting from mainstream medical treatment and prescription drugs (iatrogenic illness) is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Ever increasing studies and statistics are revealing the negative effects of toxic prescription drug use, which should be setting off alarm bells for all of us.
How is energy used for healing?
Mind over matter
For hundreds of years, the scientific explanation for the order and nature of the universe consisted mainly of a mechanistic view of reality, i.e. that everything in nature was predictable and could readily be explained. The laws of classical physics and quantum physics diverged when physicists realized that the tiny particles that make up atoms responded to the observer’s mind. Waves changed into particles when they were measured and observed and, furthermore, whether an observer was present or not. Subjective mind, therefore influences the behaviour of energy and matter.
Moreover, in his groundbreaking book “The Biology of Belief”, cell biologist Bruce H. Lipton, has demonstrated how the new science of Epigenetics is revolutionising our understanding of the link between mind and matter. His discoveries show that the biochemical effects of the brain’s functioning on all the cells of our body are affected by our thoughts.
Important also to mention is the work of Candace Pert. In her book, “Molecules of Emotion”, she revealed how her study of information processing receptors on nerve cell membranes led her to discover that the same “neural” receptors were present on most, if not all, of the body’s cells. She established that the “mind” was not focused only in the head, but was distributed via signal molecules throughout the body. Furthermore, her work discovered that emotions were not only derived from feedback coming from the body’s environmental information. Through self-consciousness, the mind can use the brain to generate “molecules of emotion” and override the system. Therefore, proper use of consciousness can bring health to an ailing body, while inappropriate unconscious control of emotions can easily make a healthy body diseased.
How can Energy Healing work over a distance?
Distant energy healing, also known as remote energy healing, is based on the principle in quantum physics that energy is not restricted by time or location, and therefore can be practised over any distance at any time, so that the person being observed or healed does not have to be present.
A striking characteristic determined by quantum mechanics is the concept of nonlocality, which Albert Einstein rather dismissively called “spooky actions at a distance”.
Nonlocality can be described as the ability of objects to instantly know each other’s state, even when separated by long distances - possibly even billions of light years away from each other!
Nonlocality happens due to the occurrence of entanglement, when particles that interact with each other become permanently interdependent on each other, to the extent that they effectively lose their individuality and in many ways become as one. This relationship between the concepts of nonlocality and entanglement, strangely enough, has repeatedly been demonstrated in laboratory experiments.
The theory is simple: Mind and the observer are paramount in the understanding of reality. There is an infinite field of energy that exists beyond our concept of space and time, which unites all of us. Reality is not one continuous and consistent stream, but a field of infinite possibilities over which we can exert enormous influence. We are all interconnected.
How does the energy healer work?
The healer works with the combination of intuition and intention energy. Intuition is used to ‘read’ the person’s energy field, while using intention to ‘release’ negative energy blocks from the person’s body or energy field.
intuition was defined as "perception via the unconscious" by Carl Jung, using sensory perception to summon up a ‘knowing’ in the form of ideas, images, feelings, etc. by a process that is mostly unconscious. We have already established that we are all interconnected, and by tapping into the unconscious and the collective unconscious we have access to a field of infinite intelligence.
There are alternative methods to tap into the unconscious besides purely through intuition, e.g. through muscle testing (kinesiology), hypnosis or meditation.
Energy fields, aura and energy centres (chakras)
Through the development of sensitive instruments, science has only just begun to recognise energy fields and the aura around the body, and their role in health and disease. Eastern medicine, on the other hand, has been using the energy fields and chakras in their healing systems for thousands of years.
The chakras are subtle energy centers in the body. The positions of the seven main chakras correspond to the glands of the endocrine system and the organs surrounding them. The chakras help to regulate all the body’s systems and processes and govern all aspects of life. Each individual chakra corresponds to different levels of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual integration.
Our thoughts are very powerful. In his experiments with water, Dr Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, formed incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. As our bodies are made up of 65% water, the implications of his research show how our health can be positively affected.
Energy follows thought
We know now that everything around us consists of energy and that the more density something has the lower the frequency it vibrates at, e.g. matter vibrates at a lower frequency than light. The different organs in our body each hold a specific frequency when they are healthy. Disfunction or illness holds a lower frequency. The energy healer holding a higher energy frequency and positive intention energy can transmute the lower vibrational disorders, so that healing occurs.
How can Energy Healing assist you?
It very quickly establishes core issues, talents, gifts and qualities, as well as blocks and challenges. It pinpoints physical, emotional and spiritual trauma in the body which can cause disease and affect our wellbeing.
Also, it is possible to powerfully shift and transform any area in a person’s life - in career and business, prosperity, health and relationships - and clear energetic drains and blockages on any level: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
