“Here the skeptic finds chaos and the believer further evidence that the hand that made us is divine.” ~Robert Moses

I love a good skeptic.  Especially the nuclear physicist kind.

Recently I found myself in conversation with one trying to explain energy healing.  They know splitting an atom (which is essentially making something less than what it was!) results in more than they can handle--- but energy healing under the very same sky is impossible!  I think not!

We all hear people say things like, “I like her energy,” “she’s really positive,” “I got a good vibe from her,” or “I’m getting mixed signals” ---yet many can’t seem to believe our energy is readable.

Here’s the physics of it all-- our bodies essentially flash in and out of existence.  Yeah, I know, hard to believe.  This is because on the most basic level, we are composed of atoms and the components of an atom flash in and out of existence.

From a biological view, each strand of DNA, contracts several BILLION times a second!  That’s just amazing! Each contraction releases a photon of light carrying all your genetic information!

It turns out the brain doesn’t have the circuitry (RAM) to be able to process all this information and store it.  So it is released from the body in frequencies.  The information is then stored in the electromagnetic field (the aura) that encapsulates the human body.  This field is photographable, measurable and well documented to exist.

Essentially, our field (aura) is a magnet holding on to all our information.  Scientists know this because they have seen Alzheimer patients (missing 40% of their brain) be able to recall information from their past under hypnosis---with great clarity!!!  That means that the information is being stored outside of the brain.

If our information is suspended in the air like radio waves, it’s understandable that we could tune into these energy frequencies and listen to what’s going on.  Some refer to us as human antennas.

We’ve probably all seen a mangled antenna incapable of receiving a radio station--- our bodies are the same.  If they are “mangled” by inappropriate diet, lack of exercise, and detrimental thoughts, we aren’t going to be clear receivers of guidance.

To be able to hear clear guidance you have to treat your antennae really well.  I look at my body like my instrument.  That’s why I have become so adept at sensing energy.  I continually feed my mind, body, and spirit with things that create alignment so that I am able to clearly differentiate between my body’s energy and others’.  I also do this so that I am in vibrational alignment with the things I want in life.

If the Law of Attraction isn’t working for you, your antennae might need adjusting!

Answer

“You will find the answer if you let it go.”  -Sarah Mclachlan

So you may have heard of the Law of Attraction from me, Oprah, or the Secret.  Either way, it’s a term that has made it into mainstream and is causing a lot of mixed emotions.  Some are relieved to have found the “answer” while others have tried it with no avail.  So what is the Law of Attraction exactly? And how do you use it?

The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like.  The best way I have heard it describe was when my friend Gemma (thanks Gem!) said the Law of Attraction is like ordering a burger at a diner.  You tell the waitress what you want exactly (grilled bun, medium-well, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, and pickle).  After the waitress leaves your table you resume a conversation with friends and low and behold 20 mins later your burger comes out exactly as you wanted it!  Perfect!

The same types of feelings you have in generating your burger are the same you should have when asking the almighty Universe for a red Porshe.  When you order your burger at a diner it is very likely that your burger is going to come out great, so it’s easy to believe you will get it.  Why is that belief important?  In order to activate the the Law of Attraction you have to believe that it is possible for you to get it.  You also have to know exactly what you want.  Often times in life we are not sure of what we want, so things don’t manifests the way we want them to.   I remember when Elizabeth Gilbert, in Eat, Pray, Love wrote about George wanting an “open heart,” and ended up having open heart surgery!  Or when a friend of mine said she wanted to “fall in love in 2010” and did-- only to have it unrequited!  The more you are sure of (exactly) what you want and believe you can have it, the more likely it is going to come to you.

Once the waitress leaves your table, there is no anxiety (or shouldn’t be!) that she is going to deliver the message to the cook and eventually get your burger to you. There shouldn’t be any anxiety about receiving the object of your desire either!  Essentially, anxiety is screaming out (energetically) I need to control this!  I might not get this!  I won’t get this!  That energy is so catastrophic to this recipe of desire!  The energy that is being emitted into the environment is going to bring back exactly what is sent out (remember like attracts like). Oops! Sometimes we as humans also have feelings like we don’t deserve something, which also keeps you from receiving.

So how does this relate to energy medicine and the body?  Taking a step back and looking at the energy of the body will help explain the relationship between energy and the Law of Attraction.  Remember Bruce Lipton and his experiment with a cell without a nucleus gravitated towards the nutritious apple?  That experiment taught us that every cell in the body has the ability to sense the environment (it is sending and receiving information).  So if there is a thought of anxiety, it carries a frequency, and that frequency will be sensed within the cell and communicated to the next cell, and the next cell, and the next cell!  Until you literally become a ball of anxiety!  Have you ever noticed “when it rains, it pours?” --Like when you are having bad day and it just seems to get worse!  Change your vibration and it will stop raining!

So how do we do that?  To start off, filling your mind with positive thoughts and feelings is a great way to immediately change your vibrational status.  The Secret, offereda great tip of placing a “Gratitude” rock in your pocket.  Every time you touch the rock, you should say something you are thankful for.  This exercise both releases soothing hormones and gets you in a more relaxed (parasympathetic) state.

Additionally, filling your body with high vibrating foods such as organic fruits and vegetables and exercising the body will help safe guard a fall from a higher vibrational status.  Also, meditating, massage, and energy work will do the same--how surprising!

If you are still not convinced that your thoughts are this powerful, consider the study done at Princeton University that was done on the ability to influence Random Event Generators (REGs).  Scientists started noticing a phenomenon where groups of people who share a ticket are more likely to win the lottery. This study gathered several people, told them to try to influence the REGs and they did!  This study has been repeated thousands of times with thousands of people and yields statistically significant results (Human Antenna, Dr. Robin Kelly, pg 76).  There is strength in numbers!

Did you hear about the study that looked at crime in Washington, D.C.?  This study had subjects meditate on peace in Washington, D.C. for a 8 weeks.  The rate of violent crimes dropped 23% in the 8 week period!  The odds of this result occurring by chance are less than 2 in 1 billion. Scrupulous statistical analyses ruled out an extensive list of alternative explanations (Social Indicators Research - Volume 47, Issue 2, June 99).

I hope this gives a whole new meaning to, “I think, there for I am.” ~René Descartes.

"I think... the most important alternative medicine treatment of all...is the area of energy medicine." ~Dr. Oz

So what is energy medicine?

Energy medicine is Reiki, acupuncture, acupressure, Qi Gong, reflexology, Donna Eden's meridian work and many others.  To be quite honest, they are all working with the same thing--the body's energy system, so placing all these under the same umbrella makes it easier to talk about.  Each modality offers a unique way of translating the energy from one source to another, but ultimately, they are all using the same main tool-universal energy force or Qi.

Some of you may be unfamiliar with referring to the body as being "made up of energy."  You are not alone.  Western medicine has certainly made it difficult to get a glimpse of these "alternative medicines"-- mostly because the drug companies would be missing out on millions of dollars spent on prescription drugs (I'll explain why that is true at a later time).

First, we all need to be on the same page--the human body is made up of energy. On the simplest level, energy cannot be created or destroyed.  You may remember from Earth Science class (thanks Ms. Silva!) that the universe came from a single atom splitting.  That same energy has been recycled for billions of years.  Each of us is made up of that very same energy.  Essentially we have all been dinosaurs, plants, fish, rocks, spiders, etc.--at least part of one.  It sure makes it easier to comprehend the idea that we are all "One"-- doesn't it.

Ok, so moving onto a deeper level.  Many of us are familiar with the idea that the brain "fires" signals (electrically) to the rest of the body.  These signals tell the body (all the way down to the cellular level) what to do, but in fact the heart is the major source of energy in the body.  It helps supply the energy necessary to run the body. The heart is energetically 5,000 times stronger than the brain!  The electromagnetic energy from the heart can be measured up to 10 feet away!   Holy moly is right! Guess what, when you were feeling "heartache" because your partner, lover, mother, father, whoever spends a lot of time with you, left to go somewhere far away, your heart was looking for their heartbeat (unique energetic pattern emitted from their heart).  When you are around someone a significant amount of time, your energetic system begins to recognize and sync up with the other's heartbeat.  So when he/she leaves, your heartbeat continually searches for his/hers.  Awwww, how romantic.  Scientists believe that our heartbeat energy is continuing to travel out into outer space continually.

Ok, now for the stuff that may blow your mind.  At least it blew my mind.  (Drum roll please...) The brain of the cell is NOT the nucleus.  Yup! I'll give you a minute.  It is the cell membrane that is the brain of the cell.  They now call it the plasma membrane.  The name says it all (memBRANE-jeesh, that's obvious).  The plasma membrane is on the outside of the cell.  How do we know this?  Well, my buddy (I wish) Dr. Bruce Lipton decided to take a cell and put it in a petri dish and put an apple slice near the cell.  The cell actually moved towards the apple.  He took the same cell and put it near a toxin, and it moved away.  This is evidence that the cell/plasma membrane senses the environment.   It sends a signal (via e-mail-jk) back to the now emotionally defeated nucleus.  That's how the body is able to reproduce/repair what is needed to be reproduced/repaired at time.  The nucleus is like a filing cabinet and pulls out the blueprint (of an ear cell, blood cell, etc) that is needed at the time.  Without the plasma membrane's input, the nucleus is at a loss of what to do.  So WHY is this important?

Thinking more globally... So if humans are made up of trillions of cells, this means that we are like walking antennas- constantly sensing our environment.  Now can you see why you may not like the "energy of a person/room/situation."  It is your cells (trillions!) talking to you.  Now is it a little easier to understand how the body may respond to energy medicine?

Alright, I think I've bombarded you with enough to think about. Enjoy the rest of your day.  I will!
