As we learn more about the human body and the relationship we have with the Universe, scientifically we are beginning to understand that the human body and mind are significantly more complex than our scientific and medical community at first thought. Consequently, one of the most fundamental mysteries in both science and medicine are the effects and consequences of the measurable energy within our being or how the measurable energy within our Universe effects our being, both energetically and physically.
If you consider the body or the brain as simply matter, made up of cells and particles, then many of our previous healing and well being strategies are pretty sound, but the brain and the body are not just cells and particles. We cannot have a complete analysis of human behavior, including how our bodies behave, without also considering the invisible, yet highly powerful quality of both the brain and the body and their energetic components.
Life Energy, including the concept of Universal Energy, is a concept that dates back to the very beginning of mankind. All major cultures and religions, including Christianity and Judaism, include the concept of a universal life energy that flows to us and from us. Some call this energy consciousness, connection, or intuitiveness, and on a much larger scale some call this universal life flow as Chi, Prana, Divine or Christ consciousness, God, Atman, etc.
All you have to do is look around you, especially in nature, to see and feel the amazing energy that flows constantly. In Einstein’s famous equation for energy: E=mc2 (The energy content of a body is equal to the mass of the body times the speed of light squared) – we know that leaving the component of energy out of any type of healing or behavior in our universe, is leaving out a fundamental piece of the whole picture. It is difficult for scientists and traditional physicians to work with energy because even though the results can be measured, the applications of various energy therapies cannot be quantified through the scientific method.
This is changing as more highly public doctors, such as Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Andrew Weil, and Dr. Joseph Mercola are using some of these energy healing therapies in conjunction with their traditional treatments.
