The Science of Self-Healing
I am into day four of the next stage - postponed for too long - of a self-healing process. The dogs remained at bay yesterday; I am surprised, but then the time is right, so I expect my body to put few obstacles in the way of its own healing.
At its current stage of evolution, the human body is an amazing piece of technological design – it has a kind of Vorsprung Durch Technik thing going on, which quantum physics is only now uncovering.
Those engaged with self-healing understand at a fundamental level that, in the words of Bruce Lipton, a world renowned cell biologist, “our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals that propel life”. Dr Lipton’s research, in uncovering the missing connections between biology, psychology and spirituality, has over-turned the Darwinian deterministic perspective.
But the self-healing route is not for the faint hearted, and definitely not for non-believers. It requires a particular mind set, where believing is seeing. As Lipton's books on his research findings and practical applications demonstrate, we become what we believe. Right now, except for the few ‘rogue’ practitioners, because that is how they are regarded, medical science is stuck in an old paradigm. At its most primitive level – reliant solely on destructive and invasive surgery and gallons of allopathic drugs, some akin to jet fuel – it can keep disease at bay for a time but really cannot heal. At a specific moment in time we are simply told, ‘there really is nothing more we can do for you’. That means all you can do is wait for death.
In my mailbox this morning was a newsletter from Hay House Publishing commending their latest publication: Practical Miracles – Choices that Heal and Build Resilience. The author shares the techniques she used to heal her own brain tumour. Quite frankly the language used in marketing the book would probably put most people off because it smacks of ‘new age quackery’.
The question is: is New Age ideas quackery? Quantum mechanics is suggesting that it might not be at all. Neuro-science and quantum theory are leading the way in providing the missing links between biomedicine and ‘energetic’ healing.
Having worked with a Master Kinesiologist over decades, I understood that the body speaks if you know how to listen and to hear, and can interpret its language: it speaks as pain and symptoms, and in feelings, in dreams and images. So when my doctor told me that I placed too much emphasis on the spiritual in terms of my healing needs, there was no response to make. It would require too much energy and I needed that energy to self-heal.
