Energy Medicine and Biofield Healing
Biofield healing does not focus on fixing problems. It focuses instead on re-awakening and re-connecting our bodies and minds to our true Self where the problems don’t exist.
In my work with chronic pain and trauma patients over the last 34 years I have studied and worked with many therapeutic systems, always trying to discover ways to give my clients the best possible results. After all this experience I have concluded that the most effective system for treating people with PTSD, chronic pain or self-sabotaging emotional blocks is a combination of vibrational energy therapies and hands-on biofield therapies.
Vibrational therapies include use of sound waves, color light or microcurrent (low-level electrical currents). These therapies require electronic equipment that generates specific frequencies. Biofield healing, on the other hand, does not require any equipment.
The biofield is the field of living, conscious energy that surrounds and permeates all living things. The term was originated in 1992 at a National Institutes of Health meeting. The biofield of the body consists of measureable electrical fields generated by the brain, heart, nervous system and cellular activity. There are also subtle energies contributing to the field that cannot yet be directly measured by test equipment, but can be verified through other, indirect methods such as hand sensing and kinesiology (muscle testing).
Biofield healing is a system for facilitating rapid and positive psychic shifts in people through clearing and adjusting of their biofield. Using a combination of vibrational therapies and biofield healing I have helped clients release chronic pain, relieve long-term phobias, improve sleep, boost energy levels, get clear mentally and significantly reduce anxiety and depression. Beyond relieving distress, this method can also help people clear blockages to success in their career or personal relationships.
Biofield healing can also be a great support for people on a path of spiritual awakening and ascension, as it helps remove feelings of disconnection. Many people receiving sessions describe tangible experiences of their one-ness with spiritual source.
The method that works in all these cases is the transmission of higher spiritual light into dark or disconnected areas of the biofield. Through a course of treatments people learn to find and tune into their own inner calm center, and stop escalating fearful and stress-based thoughts. This frees them up to move forward creating a purposeful, inspired life.
Let’s start with a few recent examples of Biofield healing from my own practice.
A young woman named Evelina (name changed) recently met me at a medical conference I was presenting at. She told me about the anxiety she had been feeling after coming to this country. Instability in her living situation combined with fallout from a past traumatic relationship had been causing her to have nightmares and fear of going out by herself in public. After our discussion Evelina started receiving a series of remote Biofield Healing sessions. These were truly remote because she was living on the East Coast and my office is near San Francisco, over 3000 miles apart.
A few days after her first Biofield session Evelina spoke with me on the phone and told me that she had gone out by herself to take care of errands with much less apprehension. She had also had a dream at night in which she fearlessly fought and triumphed over a snake, a creature she had been terrified of throughout her life. She felt more confident after these experiences, and she continued to gain confidence and inner calm over a series of sessions.
I worked with another woman named Chrissy from upstate New York who had been dealing with chronic back pain. After two remote Biofield sessions her back pain was gone. That was certainly a positive outcome, yet another side effect of the treatments was even more interesting. Chrissy was single and lived in a small town. There was an ex-boyfriend in the town that she kept running into, and this had been painful for her. Seeing him pushed her emotional buttons each time and threw her off balance. The way he acted with her kept bringing old hurts back up to the surface, like they had just happened. Chrissy was furious with herself for being so vulnerable to this man, but was unable to change this pattern. Soon after her second Biofield sessions she ran into this man again. This time felt detached and unperturbed – with no feeling of buttons being pushed.
Many doctors would find it hard to believe that results like these could happen so quickly, and over such a long distance. Yet people that I and other remote healers work with report experiences like this regularly.
One of my recent local clients was a man named Eduardo who was estranged from his female partner. Due to his heavy drinking and frequent criticisms she asked him to move out of their home. Eduardo came to me complaining about frequent anxiety, depression and fear of losing his tech job in Silicon Valley. After he completed a month of Biofield sessions Eduardo went on a trip, and I did not hear from him again for a couple of months. When we finally touched base again he told me that he was no longer drinking, had a great new job and best of all, his partner had taken him back and they were doing very well together.
Before describing more about what Biofield Healing is and how it works I will put it in the context of more familiar medical systems.
All physical things, including our bodies and our world can be described in three dimensions (length, width and height). Therefore we can call modern Western medicine a three dimensional (3D) healing system since it primarily works on what is physical and bio-chemical.
Complimentary and alternative healing arts such as acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy, naturopathy and more have become very popular because they help to fill in the gaps left by Western medicine. To varying degrees these systems work with the inter-relatedness of the body and mind, and our relationship with the cycles of nature. Physics calls time the fourth dimension. By acknowledging time we can better understand the deeper root causes of our pain and diseases. Therefore these alternative, holistic therapies can be referred to as fourth dimensional (4D) healing systems.
I consider Biofield healing to be a fifth dimensional, or 5D healing art. What does this mean? It means that Biofield healing does not focus on fixing problems. It focuses instead on re-awakening and re-connecting us to our true Self where the problems don’t exist. It does this through re-establishing the tangible experience of the Self through the body. So many people have lost much of this direct awareness of spiritual source through the body due to past trauma, fear and social conditioning.
The fifth dimension is aspect of our consciousness that has never been hurt, wounded or diseased, and has always been with us, running in the background of our minds. Biofield healing reconnects our bodies and minds to this healthy and complete core part of ourselves. It is a much more effective and rapid healing method than trying to fix problems, which can sometimes feel like a losing battle!
The scientific basis of Biofield healing
The human biofield surrounds and permeates the physical body. Our human biofields interact with the energy fields of other people around us and the Earth. In terms of physics, that makes us an “open system” – one that interacts and exchanges energy with its environment. This is why you can feel drained after being around people who are negative or needy ”energy vampires”. On the more positive side, it is also why we love being around people who are loving and positive.
Our biofield is also strongly affected by man-made electro-magnetic fields, usually with negative effects on our health and well-being. One likely reason for the spike in stress-related pain and disease is that most people live in urban areas removed from the harmonious energies of nature, surrounded by these more stress-inducing fields.
People suffering with anxiety, inflammation, pain, disease and emotional trauma will have disturbances in areas of their biofield. A skilled practitioner can perceive these as dark areas, holes or distortions in the biofield. They can help resolve the root causes of pain and trauma by adjusting the energy fields in conjunction with intuitive counseling.
In many cases adjustments to a person’s energy biofield are more important for freeing people from pain and disease than treatments done directly on the physical body. In any case biofield healing can augment and support effectiveness of physically-based treatment systems including western medicine, psychology, massage, acupuncture, physical therapy and much more. I personally had a 30 year career as an acupuncturist and energy medicine practitioner, and was able to help large numbers of people using these arts. The reason I focus on Biofield healing in my practice now is that that the beneficial changes my clients report are much more on the core level of their experience.
Healing arts that work with subtle energy fields have long been seen as separate from scientific medicine. This has been changing in recent years. There is now growing recognition of the energetic nature of life through many hundreds of recent studies. This is opening up exciting new avenues for more effective treatments for chronic pain, trauma, PTSD and hard-to-treat diseases.
This quote from bio-physicist Beverly Rubik clearly states the basis for energy medicine:
Living systems may be regarded as complex, nonlinear, dynamic, self-organizing systems of energetic and field phenomena. At the highest level of organization, each life form may possess an innate biologic field, or biofield, a complex, dynamic, weak energy field involved in maintaining the integrity of the whole organism, regulating its physiologic and biochemical responses, and integral to development, healing, and regeneration (Rubik, 1993, 1997, 2002b).
A retrospective research study published in 2010 reviewed 66 clinical studies using a variety of biofield therapies in different patient populations. The conclusion of the study was that biofield therapies show strong positive evidence for reducing pain among chronic pain patients, and moderate evidence for reducing cancer pain, negative behavioral symptoms and anxiety among hospitalized patients. While this is a good validation for the efficacy of biofield healing methods, I believe that there are methods now available that are more powerfully effective than those examined in this study.
What happens in a Biofield session?
During Biofield healing sessions the client usually lies face up on a treatment table in a meditative space. The biofield healer uses his or her hands and intuitive sensing abilities to feel for areas of the client’s energy fields that requires clearing or balancing. Healing light is then directed into the client’s energy fields (non touch), or into energy lines and points on the client’s body (with gentle touch). These could be described as forms of spiritual energy acupuncture where no needles are required.
An attuned Biofield healer can sense where the subtle energy wiring of client’s bodies are frayed or broken, and can help restore them to full connection and function over a series of sessions. Broken energy connections may manifest through feelings of depression, emptiness, fatigue or loss of life direction. Sessions may also include the removal of interfering energies from the body. In energy healer terminology these are often called ”energy implants”. Similar to the concept of samskaras introduced in Chapter 6, implants are analogous to buggy computer viruses, and can block and divert people from their well-being and success.
Almost everyone who receives biofield healing experiences a deep sense of relaxation and well-being. Those that are more sensitive to energy usually also report blissful feelings of energy and light moving through their bodies. Some other common experiences reported by clients include changes in their breathing, resurfacing of past memories, waves of emotion, release of pain or feelings of being ”lightened up.”
Because the energy directed through Biofield healing is in the quantum realm geographical distance does not matter. The benefits are the same whether the receiver is in the same room as the healer, or around the world. Many clients prefer to have in-person sessions, but it is not necessary.
What happens in a Biofield session?
Acupuncturists work with energy pathways in the body called meridians. Meridians contain acupuncture points which can be stimulated with needles, heat or microcurrent for relief of pain and healing of diseases. The key understanding is that these meridians inter-connect the surface of the body with internal organs, and connect the organs with all aspects of our mind and emotions.
According to many metaphysical systems the Earth also has its own meridians, also called ley lines. These are pathways of energy flow that have greater abundance of magnetism and vital energy. The Earth meridians have frequently become major highways, shipping lanes or animal migratory pathways. Areas rich in ley lines are often recognized as sacred sites for pilgrimage and building of temples and cathedrals.
There are also throught to be meridians inter-connecting our Earth with the solar system, galaxies and the Universe. These are also described as inter-connecting lines of energy. They are considered to be holographic because the meridian lines in the human body reflect the meridians of the Earth and cosmos.
By this belief the meridians of human beings were in more active, conscious connection and flow with these Universal lines of force at one time, and life was very different. Through what has often been called the “fall from grace” our race largely disconnected our body’s energy pathways from those of the Universe. This led to all manner of pain, disease, conflict, scarcity and spiritual dis-connection.
The root of most, if not all, pain, depression, fatigue and disease is a deep sense of disconnection from our loving, abundant true Self. As you get physically re-wired through Biofield healing and your own meditation practice you move out of separation and into the love and joy of living fully. Your energies are freed up from struggle for creative self-expression and giving your greatest gift to the world.
We might say that Biofield healing helps reverse our fall from grace, putting us back into direct connection with universal energy and consciousness. Now, that’s something to get excited about!
As you are reconnected the innate wisdom of your body can much more readily restore and rejuvenate itself. No claims or promises of specific medical results can be made for Biofield healing, yet relief of pain and improvements in health and well-being are common. These changes may be noticed right away or several days later.
The ultimate goal of this work is not just alleviation of distressing symptoms. It is to bring people into a clear and grounded consciousness where they can make new, life-affirming choices and move forward with creating a meaningful and fulfilling life.
