Interestingly, vibrational or energy medicine is nothing new. It has been successfully practiced in numerous forms all over the world for thousands of years. Considered “quackery” in the past, many of these “Alternative techniques” are now being used in tandem with mainstream medical treatment.
Ancient Indian texts accurately describe the human energy system. Vibrational healing philosophies have the unique idea that human beings are more than flesh and blood, proteins, fats, and nucleic acids. The body would be but a pile of disordered chemicals was it not for the vibrating life-force that maintains and organizes our molecular substitutes into living, breathing, thinking individuals. This life-force is part of the spirit that animates all living creatures. It is the so-called “ghost in the machine”. The spiritual element is a part of human existence that must be taken into account if we are to truly understand the basic nature of health, illness, and emotional growth.
The brain, although a complex biocomputer, needs a programmer to instruct the nervous system how to perform and what acts to accomplish. That conscious entity which uses this biomechanism of the brain and body is the human spirit or soul. That which we refer to as the spiritual domain is part of a series of higher dimensional energy systems which feed directly into the computer hardware we call the brain and body. It is these higher dimensional systems, our-so-called subtle energetic anatomy. Holistic methods of therapy are often effective because they can correct abnormal patterns of function in the higher dimensional systems that controls cellular physiology and behavioral patterns of expression.
Information and diagrams not only show where the main energy centers are located but also, what part of the endocrine system each energy center works with and how imbalances in the energy center affect the physical, mental, and emotional state of the person. Certain vibrational tools are used for correcting imbalances depending on the specific energy center involved. These energy centers and the energy field surrounding the body can now be seen using Kirlian and other special photographic equipment.
If we are beings of energy, then it follows that we can be affected by energy. Orthodox medicine has begun its evolutionary progression toward the development of energy methods of treatment. Therapeutic radiation to treat cancer, electricity to stop pain, and electromagnetic fields to stimulate healing of fractures is but the first developments of a newly evolving idea within the medical community. The energies employed by those who use vibrational methods of healing also deliver measured quanta of energy to patients.
Imagine if you could go to your doctor, sit for an hour in a comfortable chair where you are hooked up to some highly sophisticated electronic equipment, and then receive a detailed assessment of your health status. Sounds far-fetched? Perhaps, but thousands of progressive practitioners around the world are already providing this service. Not only can these practitioners provide an in-depth health assessment, but they can also treat many problems right on the spot with electrical impulses/frequencies and can prescribe safe and very specific remedies for conditions which take longer to cure.
Conventional Western medicine is based on the assumption that improper functioning of an organism is due to structural defects caused by chemical imbalances. It follows that surgery (removal of structural defects) or chemicals (pharmaceutical drugs) are required in order to correct the problem. Western medicine rarely asks why the chemical imbalance arises in the first place. This may now be changing. Professor William Tiller of Stanford University and other researchers in the field believe that chemical reactions and balances in the body are controlled by internal and external electromagnetic energy fields which in turn are affected by mental or “subtle energy fields”. Can something as ethereal as a thought actually affect our body chemistry? There is ample evidence that it can. Biofeedback, which is now an accepted medical therapy, has shown us that thoughts are indeed very powerful. By merely thinking of a warm, sandy beach we can change the conductivity of our skin and increase the temperature of our fingers. Paraplegics walk again by learning to control the firing rate of their muscle fibers through biofeedback. Thoughts can make us depressed, anxious or full of zest for life and the awesome healing power of prayer and affirmations are now well recognized.
Yes indeed, thoughts are very powerful. So why don’t we focus on modifying our thoughts and other subtle energies in order to heal ourselves rather than wait until an illness becomes so obvious and far advanced that surgery or drugs seem the only way to combat it? In other words, why not intervene earlier in the chain of events leading up to disease?
