Good health has its origins in the invisible energy field from which atoms are formed. The body is energy in vibration. When we give our bodies what they need, including plenty of loving attention, we increase the flow of life-giving energy.
What is your body made of?
Chemically, the body is mainly carbon, water and waste, but this is only its outward appearance. Through a microscope, we see that it is made up of cells. Cells are made up of molecules, which are made up of atoms. Atoms are made up of subatomic waves and particles spinning in formation, held together by an invisible information field. We are, in fact, 99.999% empty space.
We are made of the same stuff as everything else in the universe. We are, in a very literal sense, stardust!
The body is more than a marvellous machine; it appears to be a solid collection of muscles, bones and tissue, but is formed of energy. We’re a paradox – we live in physical bodies formed out of something non-physical, animated and held together by an invisible ‘life force’.
The Chakra System
Thousands of years ago, sophisticated systems of healing were developed in India and China which are just as effective today. The Indians recognised that the body is regulated by seven ‘wheels of light’ or major energy points known as ‘chakras’. The first five are situated along the spine, the sixth and seventh in the head:
- The Base Chakra at the base of the spine, relates to the adrenal glands, spinal column and kidneys.
- The Sacral Chakra at the top of the triangular bone forms the keystone of the pelvic archand relates to the reproductive system and legs.
- The Solar Plexus Chakra in the lower back governs the nervous system and stomach and regulates blood sugar.
- The Heart Chakra, related to the Thymus Gland, controls the immune system, heart and circulation. It is situated between the shoulder blades.
- The Throat Chakra, situated in the neck, relates to the thyroid gland (which controls the metabolism) and governs the lung, bronchial and vocal apparatus and alimentary canal.
- The Brow Chakra is found in the middle of the forehead between the eyes. It links to the pituitary gland, which controls maturation and growth.
- The Crown Chakra at the top of the head governs the other six. It relates to the pineal gland, which is responsible for the production of melatonin, a powerful antioxidant which strengthens the immune system and may increase longevity.
The energy field extends beyond your physical form. A field of electrical energy, the ‘aura,’ radiates from you as a magnetic field radiates from a magnet.
Your aura expands, contracts and changes hue according to your physical, mental and emotional health. When you are well, it expands and glows brightly; when you are unwell or cut off from your inner peace, it closes in and turns dreary grey.
Although most of us cannot see them with the naked eye, we are aware of others’ auras at a subconscious level. A healthy aura attracts and energises us; a dull aura repels.
The aura can be photographed using a technique known as ‘Kirlian’ photography. Why not have your energy field photographed? There’s bound to be someone in your area who practises Kirlian photography. You’ll find it illuminating, literally!
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
TCM dates back at least four thousand years, and is a radically different way of understanding physical function and the causes of disease than its Western counterpart. At the heart of the TCM healing model is the flow of energy, ‘qi’ or ‘chi’, through the meridians (energy channels). Disease is viewed as a lack of harmony or disruptions in qi. Practitioners aim to influence the delivery and control of this subtle energy, to address the root cause of illness rather than merely treating the symptoms.
Treatments include herbs, acupuncture, dietary therapy, tui na massage, cupping, moxabustion (applying heat) and Qigong exercises.
Kinesiology – evidence of cellular intelligence
Kinesiology is a complementary healing system based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. It taps in to the innate intelligence present in every cell. The practitioner tests the strength in various muscles to identify problem areas, then restores balance within the body, relieves energy blockages and helps the body’ to cleanse itself of toxins and heal naturally.
A growing interest in energy medicine
For a long time Oriental Medicine was regarded in the West as esoteric, but now it is proven to be verifiable science. For example, meridians have been mapped using thermal imaging, electronics, radioactivity etc. They are high-speed highways for information carrying and energy interchange.
Science is beginning to acknowledge that chemistry, although successful at explaining many of the functions of the body, does not adequately explain its integrative workings. Energy medicine is integrative: it combines physics, chemistry, biology and the information network in the body that conventional biology knows next to nothing about.
The state of your energy field dramatically affects your physical state. Managing your energy field is within your grasp. For example, be aware of the energy of people you mix with and the language you use. Seek out places with healthy energy (e.g. the natural environment), use earth-based PEMF therapy devices and distance yourself from anything that weakens your energy field.
