Where We Are and Where We’ve Been
What is often referred to as “energy healing” is both the future of medicine and a return to its ancient roots. The spiritual practices of indigenous peoples, the Daoists, Yogis and Yoginis, the Pythagoreans, and the Essenes and early Christians (just to name a few) all hearken to this latent potential that is largely forgotten in our modern way of life. It’s time to remember.
Though still the most profitable industry in the world by far, the pharmaceutical industry is currently facing a number of never-before-seen challenges. The knowledge that medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US and the pervasiveness with which drug-induced side effects haunt those seeking healthcare continue to shift the public’s focus towards natural and non-invasive alternatives.
Conventional medicine excels in treating traumatic and acutely life-threatening conditions through surgical and pharmaceutical intervention. Yet those with chronic functional imbalances are increasingly turning to nutrition and lifestyle with the help of their acupuncturist, ayurvedic practitioner, herbalist, naturopath, chiropractor, bodyworker, energy healer, or other holistic practitioner.
Energy Healing, Really?
The very term “energy healing” is itself disputed. While the remarkable effects of “energy healing” are actually quite demonstrable in the laboratory, the mechanism by which this healing occurs remains a mystery. Is there some kind of energy being transmitted from healer to healee; or could it be simpler than that? Quantum physics tells us that the fabric of space-time is an infinitely dense sea of energy that is a repository for information. Could “energy healing” be more accurately described as “information healing”?
I invite you for a moment to consider the information necessary to make up the chair on which you sit or the clothes on your body. We are accustomed to thinking of space as composed of solid matter, but the quantum mechanics that govern our world dictate that everything is composed of energy (e = mc2, right?). It is well understood that the atom is 99.99999% empty space. So what’s holding everything together? The answer is information. We live in a connected universe.
The Power of Intention
Another term for this modality is “intentional healing”. What’s borne out in the laboratories of scientists like Lynne McTaggart (author of The Field, The Intention Experiment, The Power of Eight), Dr. William Bengston (founder of the Bengston Method), and Dr. Beverly Rubik (author of Life at the Edge of Science) is that the sheer intention for something to “heal” is all it takes to shift cellular metabolism towards greater homeostasis and decreased morbidity. Take note that the participants’ closeness to one another has no effect. You could be anywhere in the universe and send or receive healing – this is what’s referred to as distant energy healing.
As areas of medical science like nutrigenomics, metabolomics, and proteomics are advancing rapidly –some thought-leaders like Dr. Ted Achacoso of the Philippines notably allude to the possibility that “your grandchildren will be treated using the science of quantum-biomics.” The medicines of the future are light, sound, electromagnetism and the mind itself.
The late Emilio Del Giudice, a pioneer in the field of biophysics, has been described as “lighting the fire of a new science”. The conclusion drawn from his work and the work of his student, Dr. Mae Wan Ho, is that you are a living liquid crystal performing a symphony of light and sound in order to be alive!
That’s not woo – that’s years of analysis into living structures at the electrochemical and mathematical level. Combine this insight with the notion of living in a deeply connected universe where practices like distant energy healing are commonplace and you begin to envision a vastly different healthcare system than what we’ve inherited.
What Does This Mean For Me?
We will see practices like distant energy healing continue to gain traction as the “fire of this new science” ignites the curiosity of biologists, physicists, and healthcare practitioners around the world.
With distant energy healing, each practitioner is going to bring their unique approach to the practice. For instance, in my distant healing practice I have developed a form of remote pulse diagnosis where I perceive the clients pulse from afar. I then use the information gathered from this to select acupuncture points that meet the energetic needs of the individual. Magnets, tuning forks, lasers, or moxibustion is then used on a holographic representation of the individual from afar. Other practitioners may use a similar technique or may simply dive in and be guided by what they perceive during the healing process itself.
The information necessary to help an individual to their next phase of healing is readily available to the skilled healer. The only remaining piece is you – the open and willing recipient. If you haven’t already, seek out and experience intentional healing for yourself so you can be an advocate for this profound form of medicine. Welcome to the future.
