Welcome back to our latest edition of Holistic Living Magazine. I think the topic for this edition is very important right now. For so long we have been looking at our physical body for healing and forgetting everything else.
As new studies confirm, we are so much more than just a physical body and we need to start understanding the holistic self (this means the whole self, not just part of it) to aid true healing. The subject in this magazine is Energy & Consciousness.
As we are growing and learning, scientists are now realising that, what we once thought was true is not the whole truth. As technology is becoming more advanced, we are now learning that we can measure energy and that this energy has an effect on the cells in our body.
Science is now realising that the esoteric traditions were right, as scientists can now measure what is happening within our body and energy fields.
Scientists are now documenting that the heart is the strongest generator of both electrical and magnetic fields in the body. This is important as we have always thought that the brain was the biggest generator.
Did you know, the heart is up to 100 times stronger electrically and 5000 times stronger magnetically than the brain? Our physical world is made up of electrical and magnetic fields.
Physics states, if we can change either the electrical or magnetic field of the atom, we change the way the atom vibrates. This means we can change the way our body vibrates!
So if we can change our body by looking at the electric magnetic field, we can look at how we can heal our body this way too.
One of the most exciting things for Eastern medicine is Switzerland now recognises some of their modalities as legitimate medicine.
In the past these therapies were not seen as viable for insurance companies. Many of these therapies work on the energetic body as well as the physical body. It seems like Western medicine is now catching up to Eastern medicine and an integration is happening.
The Swiss currently give five complementary therapies including homeopathy the same status as conventional medicine.
Homeopathy, holistic medicine, herbal medicine, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine are currently covered by the mandatory basic health insurance when performed by a certified physician.
AMAZING isn’t it?
So that is energy and the measurement of it, but what is consciousness?
Although many people seem to think they know intuitively what consciousness is, it is difficult to define.
When I need to know a word or definition I go to the dictionary to learn. This is no different.
The dictionary definition of the word consciousness is: “The state of being aware of and responsive to one’s surroundings”. “An awareness or perception of an inward psychological or spiritual fact: intuitively perceived knowledge of something in one’s inner self”.
So the dictionary is talking about an awareness, perception to self, both psychologically and spiritually.
Consciousness is not new information, it is old information that has been lost and passed down by word of mouth by old traditions. The secrets were kept by a select few who wanted to dedicate their lives to study.
The knowledge was…
