My first stint in graduate school was at the Institute of Animal Behavior, a now defunct department at Rutgers that focused on Ethology. Ethology is a powerful field of studying behavior and resulting phenomenon and using the scientific method to evaluate theories on the purpose of these. So my training was in classical scientific method. As a scientist, when doing an experiment, you start with a theory. Our theory is that energy healing is an effective tool for physical and emotional dis-ease.
Let's just say, even if we are uncertain of the mechanism of how something works, the evidence that it does work warrants further exploration. Furthermore, it is always mind-blowing when it does since it questions our materialistic view of the world.
Last night at our healing circle, we had the opportunity to see this mind-blowing power at work. We started our session with the prayer of St. Francis, or rather the Twin Hearts meditation as it was developed by GMCKS, founder of Pranic Healing. We all felt the energy flow through our hearts to our hands. I have done this mediation hundreds of times, and it was pretty powerful even with just the three of us.
We followed the meditation with a brief intro into how Pranic Healing works. Even though my formal training is in classical neuroscience, I spent over a decade training in bioenergy healing, working with Master Co, the primary disciple of GMCKS. I have treated my own training more like an academic or scientific journey, and less like a healer or practitioner. But, I have been feeling called to start using these tools as I am seeing the need for healing in our community.
The system calls for cleansing and then energizing the energy field (or aura and chakras). There are specific patterns for various diseased states, but a general approach is a direct one. That is, if it hurts, clean it with white or green prana and then energize it with white, or violet. *there are specifics about color, but these color choices are a safe bet.
One of the ladies had a tooth abscess, so we swept the area with clean prana, and then briefly energized it to support the healing. We ended the session with a prayer of thanks. It was probably about an hour later that she called me, so excited to tell me the news. The abscess was gone! It had burst when she got home, and drained on its own. I was so excited. Like I said, I have always observed these things as a scientist--holding no expectation, just performing the experiment and recording the results. To have another positive example, makes me laugh in my heart. This stuff is so freaking cool!
This is not pretend-land, but founded in the powerful facts of the workings of consciousness and the magnetic fields (or morphic fields--or consciousness fields) of our bodies. The how of it all is still a matter left to those who are leading the way in our advancing understanding of the multi-dimensional reality. But why should we wait to understand quantum mechanics of energy healing, when we have a powerful healing tool at our fingertips (quite literally)?!
