Science Behind Energy Healing
Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks, allowing the universal life force or “Qi” to flow freely through the body. This process of reconnecting with the universal life force allows the internal transformation to occur, awakens the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. Energy healing comes with quite a few popular names: spiritual healing, healing touch, Chakra healing, Chakra balancing, quantum healing, and quantum touch.
Energy healing and the study of the body’s energy centers have been on going for thousands of years. In China, Qi Gong and Tai Chi are popular forms of energy cultivating practice through the use of free hands, and acupuncture is based on the traditional Chinese medicine theory of Meridians – the energy superhighways of the body. Seven Chakras – the major energy centers of the body had been studied extensively since ancient India, and Yaga is a popular form of energy cultivating practice originating from India. Reiki is the Japanese tradition of hands-on energy healing, and it dates back to just the early 20th century. It’s relatively short in history but since it is easy and quick to learn, it has become popular to the western world.
Energy healers are often met with curiosity, fascination, and skepticism. But this thousand years of human history cannot be all wrong. The common theme of these different energy healing modalities is to stimulate body’s natural ability to heal by cultivating the universal life force. Is there any science behind these modalities?
The Invisible Force
First, let’s take a look at this fascinating video below showing how a Reiki healer examined the Chakras of a patient using a pendulum during a typical Reiki session. Before the treatment, some Chakras were seen opened and a few others were completely shut. This Reiki healer used the simple technique of intention. She could had done it herself but she asked the patient to use mental imagination to spin a color ball corresponding to the color of the specific Chakras. All Chakras were opened very quickly right after. Super fascinating, isn’t it? The pendulum spinning is a very simple aid to thousands of Reiki healers. If there was no science behind this, what would have moved that pendulum? An invisible vortex force is all around us. If you Chakras do not spin, you energy is said to have blockages, and you would feel sick.
But what is that force? It’s not an EM force, it’s not the heat wave, it’s not the air flow, it’s not …. Obviously, the science we know it can not explain it. Isn’t it nice if scientists and engineers know how to utilize this energy? Also, the power of intention you just witnessed in the video – something of a though has such a profound effect in the physiology and energy field of our bodies. This is how the energy healing occurs. Newtonian science can not explain it, but it happens all the times. A few open-minded scientists now are able to show the world why the energy healing works.
The Biology of Belief
Recognizing the limitations of the Newtonian science, contemporary cell research has started to apply the principles of quantum physics that states the world as being created out of energy.
In his book The Biology of Belief – Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles, Dr. Bruce H. Lipton, a renowned cell biologist and a former medical school professor and research scientist at University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and Stanford University’s School of Medicine, presented to the world the stunning new scientific discoveries that the traditional view of genetic and biological determinism is incorrect. The environment plays a big role in genetic behavior, in part due to how we perceive it.
He went into great detail to explore his own experiments and those of other leading-edge scientists to show that how truly connected the mind, body, and spirit are. He explains that our cells’ membranes contain special proteins called Integral Membrane Proteins (IMPs) that respond to energy signals from the external and internal environment. They are just like “nano-antennas” tuned to respond to certain environmental signals in the form of energy. The DNA genes themselves do not control their activity, but rather, the receptor-effector mechanism of the IMPs does in response to the energetic environmental signals it receives. These are important findings because they acknowledge that biological behavior can be controlled by “invisible” energy forces, which include thought. This new science of epigenetics is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter. It clearly puts the energy or spiritual healing in the science context.
Energy or spiritual healing works because when we concentrate our attention through prayer, meditation or contemplation, we tune ourselves into the subtle, quantum-level zero-point energy field. When this energy is allowed to flow into our DNA, it affects the cells’ IMPs that subsequently drive all our physical metabolic processes. This is why we have the ability to heal ourselves and why those energy healers are capable to heal through prayer, meditation or conscious intention. This is also why manifestation works.
Scalar Wave Connection
Energy healing is the practice to tap into the scalar wave or zero-point energy field’s potential. According to the scalar wave theory, scalar waves are potential waves, they can travel faster than the speed of light, penetrating anything without decay. Scalar wave carries both energy and information and it is the same subtle energy field or zero-point field energy that encompasses everything, everywhen, and everywhere in the universe. Human beings are interconnected with each other and with everything else in universe by this unseen communication network and the interaction is instantaneous.
Scalar wave has the potential to create but is currently undetectable using contemporary measurement instruments. This makes it almost impossible to be accepted into the main stream science. In science, any claim must be justified by an experiment that must also be able to be replicated. Without the directly measurable parameters, we can only rely on the method of inference.
One way to infer the existence and the power of scalar wave is through the method of manifestation. Manifestation is when something spiritual becomes real. The scalar wave potential is only manifested when we tune our thought frequency to its vibration with the intention what it is we want to create. This is the concept of mind over matter and it has been validated by scientists including Dr. Bruce H. Lipton. The scalar wave or zero-point field potential is unlimited and therefore what we are capable of creating is also unlimited.
Another way to infer the existence of scalar wave or zero-point field is through the “free energy” or “energy from the vacuum” or “over unity” experiments where certain devices can be operated almost indefinitely with coefficient-of-performance (COP) > 1.
