 - The idea that immersing yourself in forests and nature has a healing effect is far more than just folk wisdom.

‘The longer the trip, the more healing occurs,’ says the geologist Peter Winn, who has been leading expeditions down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon since the 1960s. ‘Healing happens for people almost without exception.’

The most dramatic transformations that he’s observed have been in disabled military veterans on 16-day kayaking trips organised by a group called Team River Runner. ‘One army communications expert came home from Iraq so full of shrapnel, he’d lost his ability to do even simple math, and would only say “Fuck you.”’ By the end of the trip, he spoke eloquently and at length, in appreciation of both the Canyon and his fellow boaters. ‘Later his wife wrote to thank the crew and the river for getting her husband back.’

 - An examination of the majority of spiritual paths and religions on this planet reveals an overriding belief that sound was the primary force of creation. Examples of this come from the Old Testament (“And God said, ‘Let there be Light’”) and the New Testament (“In the beginning was the Word”). It comes from many other traditions—Egyptian, Hopi, Mayan, Polynesian, and more—which all have creation myths that invoke the power of sound. It is said in the Hindu spiritual path that “Nada Brahman”—everything is sound. Even from a Western scientific perspective, we talk about the “Big Bang,” signifying that the creation of the universe was somehow sonic in origin.

Modern scientists, like our ancient mystics, tell us that everything is in a state of vibration, from the electrons moving around the nucleus of an atom to planets in distant galaxies spinning around their suns. From the very tiny to the very large, everything vibrates. As many of our modern physicists understand, energy and matter are interrelated. Thus, if all forms of energy are putting out a vibration, all that energy can be considered sound, whether we can hear it or not.

 - The cause of your physical pain and disease is you...

Yes, you. Not the environment, your mother’s genes or your junk food diet. Everything in your body that you see manifested as form and phenomena comes from the vibrations within your body which then give rise to either health or disease. What we feel–our emotions coordinate our biochemical, cellular and complete physiological states our entire lives. In other words, the cause of all disease is not tangible at all. Our outlook on life and how we feel about ourselves may be the most relevant health predictor of all.

Many people are already familiar with the fact that emotional stress can lead to digestive issues, irritable bowel syndrome, tension and headaches, but many may not be aware that can also cause other physical illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and even symptoms of severe chronic pain.

More subtly, one might develop psychosomatic symptoms or stress-related symptoms because of unresolved emotional issues. These are not new discoveries; researchers have studied the mind/body interrelationship for several decades because of the importance of this link.

 - There is nothing more telling about the gap between allopathic medicine and shamanic healing than the way they approach the beginning and ending of life. In our intimidating and impersonal hospitals, the pregnant woman is considered sick. She lies in a sterile room and is provided with painkillers to avoid experiencing the pain of birth.

According to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, 32.2 percent of all women choose to do a costly cesarean section under anesthesia. Rarely are family members allowed to be present to support her. Once the baby is out, he is taken away, separated from his mother, and fed with sugar water.

Indigenous societies celebrate the newborn’s arrival with welcoming ceremonies. On one of my trips to Brazil’s Rio Negro, I learned about one of those welcoming ceremonies. As our riverboat landed inthe small port of a tiny town on the river, I spotted a small store selling the native arts and craft of the Waimiri-Atroari. One of the items that caught my eyes was a beautiful brown and white woven hammock made of swita, a special strong river grass. I opened it up, and to my surprise there was a big hole in the middle of it. I asked the young, native attendant why the hammock was made this way.

“Oh, this is a birthing hammock,” she giggled as she saw my confused face. “When the woman is ready to give birth, her family hangs this hammock between two trees and digs a deep hole in the earth below. The woman sits in the hammock, positioning her vulva over the hammock opening. When the baby comes out, before they clean him up, he is lowered into the hole to be greeted by Mother Earth first. He is then given to his human mother to be breastfed. Then her nutrient-rich placenta is buried in the pit, connecting the two mothers and enriching the earth.” During all of this, a group of women celebrate the arrival of the new member of the community. What a remarkable difference.

 - Homeopathy is both revolutionary and subversive. Those who experience successful homeopathic treatment are often changed in ways that they could not have anticipated. When we begin to question how it is possible that homeopathy can work at all, it profoundly alters our perception of the world around us. Once the implications of homeopathic treatment sink in, one cannot help but see things from a completely different perspective, from a radically different paradigm than that of mainstream science and medicine.  

Homeopathy is controversial because it challenges some of our most cherished beliefs and values. It changes our understanding of mind and body. It flies in the face of body-centered materialistic medicine. Homeopathy does not simply acknowledge the reality of mind. It confirms over and over that mind and body are one. Even the term mindbody is misleading. It does not mean that mind and body are two separate but interconnected things. Mind and body are one and the same.

Just to be clear, it’s not that all is mind, or that all is in the mind. All is mindbody, with health disturbances manifesting to varying degrees as physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual symptomatology. Perhaps it is more complete to say that all is bodyheartmindsoul.

- In this article we will explore how your body is a holographic projection of your consciousness, and how you directly influence that hologram and thus have complete control over the physical health of your body. We will also specifically explore the exact mechanism behind this principle, and don’t worry, I will provide scientific evidence so let your rational mind be at ease. But first … how is this even possible?

One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality. Early in the 1900’s they proved this beyond a shadow of a doubt with an experiment called the double slit experiment. They found that the determining factor of the behavior of energy (‘particles’) at the quantum level is the awareness of the observer.

For example: electrons under the same conditions would sometimes act like particles, and then at other times they would switch to acting like waves (formless energy), because it was completely dependent on what the observer expected was going to happen. Whatever the observed believed would occur is what the quantum field did.

The quantum world is waiting for us to make a decision so that it knows how to behave. That is why quantum physicists have such difficulties in dealing with, explaining, and defining the quantum world. We are truly, in every sense of the word, masters of creation because we decide what manifests out of the field of all-possibility and into form.

 - Our thoughts are powerful. So powerful in fact that often just thinking about someone can send a small stream of energy their way.

We are all energetic beings and we all have energy that flows from within and around us. When we start to become aware of this energy and its potential, we can use it to send healing, good thoughts and wishes to people we care about all over the world.

We all have the ability to do this as long as we are open and confident in who we want to send loving, healing energy to.

Here is how to send distant healing energy to another person, animal or plant...

shutterstock_174150992 - What is energy, what is an aura, and do you have a field of energy around and within your body?

We feel that it exists, that it’s there, but what is the proof that tells us unequivocally that we are right – and not just imagining it?

Luckily, over the years, a number of key scientific experiments have been conducted to answer the question of “Does [bio]energy exist?”.

 - The healing art of Reiki has been practiced and taught around the world for many years, with many believing its origins to be as ancient as those of humans themselves. With scientific research now emerging attesting to the ability of human thoughts, emotions, and intentions to affect the physical material world, an increasing number of scientists, quantum physicists in particular, are stressing the importance of studying factors associated with consciousness and its relation to our physical world. One of these factors is human intention.

Reiki essentially uses human intention to heal another person’s ailments. Practitioners usually place their hands on the patient in order to channel energy into them by means of touch. It can be roughly defined as using compassionate mental action and physical touch, energy healing, shamanic healing, nonlocal healing, or quantum touch.
 
The popularity of this practice is exemplified by the fact that, as of 2000, there were more ‘distant healers’ in the United Kingdom than therapists practicing any other form of complementary or alternative medicine, and the same goes for the United States.
