of Energy Medicine
The energy in our bodies
connects us to all of existence through the unified field. At the subatomic
level we are exchanging electrons with the universe constantly. At this
level of existence we have no distinguishing characteristics from anything.
Eastern philosophies describe this vital energy, called chi, as similar
to, but more subtle than, electro-magnetivity. This is the meeting point
of Eastern philosophy and Quantum Mechanics.
Energy is present before manifestation. Energy precedes matter just as thought
or feeling precedes action. The relativity theory created by Albert Einstein
tells us that mass is nothing but a form of energy. Atomic physics reveals
that subatomic particles have no meaning as isolated entities, but can only
be understood as interconnections. Quantum theory reveals a basic oneness
of the universe. It shows that we cannot atomize the world into independently
existing smaller units. For all of the distinctions we make between ourselves,
the piece of paper on which this is printed, and the cup of coffee we drink
as we read this, they are not distinct. They are all one and that one is
Approaching energy from another perspective, we turn to Eastern philosophy.
The Veda, an ancient Indian text, has an abundance of knowledge pertaining
to the constructs of life. The Veda labels this energetic vibration vrittis.
Inaudible to the human ear, vrittis is experienced through the nervous system
energetically and then the mind interprets it and may translate it into
action. When living beings channel this universal energy, chi, or vrittis
it circulates throughout the meridians, nourishing our tissues.
Energy medicine replenishes and harmonizes the vital energy of the body
by re-circulating energy in our meridians. In the Jin Shin Tara Approach,
we do this by placing our fingertips on two energy centers, places where
the meridians flow to the body’s surface in greater abundance. When
we feel the pulsation of the energy harmonize on these two centers, we continue
to progress to a different energy center. A series of points are called
a flow and each flow has a specific intended function.
For example, when we do a liver flow we are affecting the chi (universal
energy) of the liver. It enhances the energy on the periphery of the body,
travels through the body via the meridians, and nourishes the liver with
life force. This process becomes a meditation, where the spirit is directed
through the body and the communion of our spirit and soul heals our psyche.
When we begin healing ourselves, we want to start at the energetic level.
When we attempt to heal our bodies without recognizing the spirit, we hide
our real dis-ease or dis-comfort in our lives. We become trapped in our
present beliefs. When we treat ourselves with energy medicine, our bodies
become a conduit for chi and our spirit becomes aligned with our actions.
The Soul/Spirit Connection
When we receive insight from our spirit we are open to life. It supports
us in our actions and comforts our souls. The spirit is an airy component
and the soul is watery. When the spirit rests with the soul, they harmonize
each other. We discover the outward search for spirit is truly an inward
quest for our soul. When our spirit’s energy disconnects from our
soul, we have few possibilities besides our previous habits, choosing to
live in ignorance because our spirit searches for wisdom outside of ourselves.
When the connection is blocked, it creates fear in the soul. When we act
in union with the unified field, called yoga in Sanskrit, we obtain a self-referral
feedback loop. Through the loop, our actions are reflected upon by our spirit
and we evolve from our previous behavior into a lively creative being. This
effortless embodiment of our spirit allows us to accomplish our heart’s
Stabilizing our awareness in the unchanging unbounded level of our existence,
which is where our spirit resides, allows for all possibilities to be available
to us. The greatest level of influence is available at this subtle level
of creation. Quantum Mechanics calls the subtle level of creation the unified
field, Taoists call it the Tao, Christians and Jews call it God, Muslims
call it Allah, Rastafarians call it Jah, It is called Brahma by the Veda;
but it is recognized as the essence of life by many.
Yoga Verse: She no longer bound to her body, her soul freed from the mind,
was like a bird freed from it¹s cage.
