What is Energy Medicine?
Energy medicine also known as energy therapy is an ancient alternative healing approach that goes hand in hand with Western medicine. One of my favorite authors is a gifted healer, Donna Eden, an internationally known speaker and teacher famous for curing herself from multiple sclerosis. Donna and her husband, Dr. David Feinstein, have been both teaching for four decades and claim:
"Your body is designed to heal itself. The ability of a body to maintain its health
and overcome illness is, in fact, among nature's most remarkable feats."
From my own journal... "I will never forget a patient, who passed away during my shift at the surgical ward. First, being only 16, I was really scared. Second, I thought, I could never do this kind of job for a living. How do you handle a constant pain, suffering and crippled bodies? Worse, I tried to imagine what the mother or the father or the daughter of this particular patient was going through. The body is still there but it doesn't function any more, the heart is silent and quiet, there is no breath coming in or out and there are no vital signs. In that moment, when I faced death for the first time in my life, I recalled the words of my physiology teacher explaining that there is a soul in our bodies. I then thought, what happened to the soul? Many, many years later I found some answers in Gary Zukav's books and Dr. Wayne Dyer's teachings. They brought me some comfort and helped understand who and what we are as humans."
One of the best descriptions I found comes from Dr. Bruce Lipton. This internationally known cell biologist, claims that our DNA and our genes can be changed by our personal beliefs, attitude and principles. He has put together the spirit and science offering a very unique view of our existence. Here is what he writes:
"I was exhilarated by the new realization that I could change the character of my life by changing my beliefs. (...) I realized that there was a science-based path that would take
me from my job as a perennial "victim" to my new job as "co-creator" of my destiny."
Please note, these words were spoken by a scientist, who has spent most of his life in the medical lab with dimmed lights looking at the petri dish observing cells, researching and training young medical residents.
"We are living in exciting times, for science is in the process of shattering old myths
and rewriting a fundamental belief of human civilization. The belief that we are frail,
biochemical machines controlled by genes is giving way to an understanding that we
are powerful creators of our lives and the world in which we live."
According to the author, only two percent of the disease in general is caused by gene disorder.
"As a cell biologist I knew that my insights had powerful ramifications for my life and the lives of all human beings. I was acutely aware that each of us is made up of approximately 50 trillion single cells. I had devoted my professional life to better understanding single cells because I knew then and know now that the better we understand the single cells the better we can understand the community of cells that comprises each human body and that if single cells are controlled by their awareness of the environment so too are we trillion-celled human beings. Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life."
