We live in an interactive, vibrational world where things are affected by our thoughts, emotions, desires, projections and intentions. What we send out to the universe is always received and the universe always responds in some way or another, bringing back to us a reality that is specifically engineered according to the messages we have sent out, always within the context of our personal frame of reference. Of course, this personal frame of reference may, and almost certainly will, include those group choices that we have made as a people living on the same planet. For many people, some of these group choices are currently being dropped or re-evaluated. This is very liberating, as almost all of these group choices have become beliefs that limit our perspective and therefore our experience.
One of the things that is missing the most in the world today is “presence”. We’ve become a society where everyone watches TV, communicates electronically, interacts superficially and there is a lack of presence. This is because people have given away their own presence and don’t know how to get it back. There are many ways that people do this, but one of ways is by becoming too invested in a particular thing – a particular idea, a particular relationship, a particular possession or a particular dream. In becoming so invested in these areas or things, or sometimes just in one thing, we give away our power to simply be present because we’ve transferred it to the object of our focus. It’s a bit like tunnel vision where we’re focusing just on one thing to the exclusion of everything else. In doing this we not only lose our perspective, but we move away from our presence. We give away our ability to be our joyful, abundant self, fully present, fully aware. We lose our centre.
Biofield therapy refers to a group of therapies that effect change in people’s health and well-being by interacting with their biofield. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) defines biofields as “energy fields that purportedly surround and penetrate the human body”[i].
As was explained in my previous article, Is Energy Medicine a Part of Your Healthcare?, there is increasingly convincing evidence that each human being is comprised of an energetic system that is highly integrated with the physical body, emotional systems and spiritual being of the individual. This will not necessarily be news to anyone with a spiritual practice. There are many ways to tap into this energetic system in a therapeutic manner in order to enhance both physical and emotional wellness. More commonly known therapies include acupuncture and homeopathy, but there is a rapidly developing group of therapies that can collectively be called biofield therapies.
Energy Medicine refers to a broad range of therapies that all have one thing in common. They all consider that the human being consists of a physical body capable of thoughts and emotions, but also has an energetic system that supports and nourishes the physical, emotional and mental, with all of these systems being tightly integrated.
