Energy Medicine, Albert Einstein, and You
At the foundation of Energy Medicine is the understanding that we each have an inner healing force, an intelligent active inner physician. It’s the same force that heals your skin when you get a cut, fights off a cold, causes you to recover from the flu, and it does much, much more. The techniques you can learn through Eden Energy Medicine don’t teach your body anything new; they reactivate and restore healing from the resources already within you. And, they give you powerful ways to work with the energies of your own body to improve your health and well-being.
Psychologist David Feinstein, Ph.D. gives us a Left Brain Definition of Energy Medicine:
“Conventional medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the biochemistry of cells, tissue, and organs. Energy Medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the energy fields of the body that organize and control the growth and repair of cells, tissue, and organs. Changing impaired energy patterns may be the most efficient, least invasive way to improve the vitality of organs, cells, and psyche.”
Donna Eden, my teacher, and one of the world’s most sought after authorities in energy healing, gives us a right brain definition of Energy Medicine:
“Energy is your body’s magic! It is your life force. You keep it healthy and it keeps you healthy. If you are sick or sad, shifting your energies feels good. When you care for these invisible energies, it makes your heart sing and your cells happy!”
Energy Medicine is not new; it has roots in traditional Chinese medicine (including Acupuncture and Five Elements systems), Tai Chi, and Yoga, which are each thousands of years old. However, energy healing is not yet widely used or recognized in our country. The trend of the times is to believe only what we have been able to measure, which also means that if we haven’t been clever enough to create a machine sensitive enough to register and quantify the subtle energy information around us, we tend to not believe it is there.
Albert Einstein once asked his colleagues, “Do you remember how electrical currents and ‘unseen waves’ were laughed at?”
He asked that question about 100 years ago. Now we have MRIs, PET scans and SQUID magnetometers.
I think he would be impressed.
Einstein’s legacy was to change the face of science, from viewing the universe from a Newtonian / mechanical perspective, to the perspective of “All is Energy.” He was a pioneer in quantum theory, and brought forward the understanding that everything we can touch is actually energy.
“Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” ~ Albert Einstein
In other words, Everything is Energy. Our bodies, our physical world, our thoughts and beliefs are all part of a resonant field of vibrating, oscillating energy. Our energy is affected by our lifestyles, our environment, and our emotions. The patterns of these energy fields can be influenced by specially targeted massage, movement exercises, tapping on key spots on the body, choosing new thought habits, and other methods. You can affect your energy fields with simple techniques, which will affect your health, your wellbeing, and your state of mind.
Albert Einstein said, “The field is the sole governing agency of the particle.” In other words, the force of invisible energy, the information held in energy fields, is the only determinant of physical reality. You have the ability to restore your energy fields to healthier and more resilient patterns. This will then reflect in your mood, your sense of vitality, and your over all health.
Although conventional medicine does not currently, generally, validate energy medicine, in the past twenty years there have been great strides in the documentation, measurement and observational evidence of energy healing. James Oschman, PhD, biologist and biophysicist, began his research into the field of energy medicine as a dispassionate skeptic, and became convinced of its validity almost in spite of himself. His first book is called Energy Medicine, The Scientific Basis. His latest book is Energy Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance Another interesting resource is by Richard Gerber, MD, called Vibrational Medicine.
