Intention Heals: DreamHealer July 13, 2011Posted by Dreamhealer in Dreamhealer.
WE HAVE all heard that the power of our positive thinking has a direct influence on our biology. It sounds simple. Many of us accept that this is true as we have all known people who enjoy a more fulfilling life than those with a negative outlook. Although intellectually we may accept the power of positive thinking, few of us know how to effectively maximize its potential.
The latest biological research supports our ability to influence our own reality. Our wellness is directly related to our thoughts, emotions and intentions. Each of us has the capacity to focus our intentions and energy on effectively harnessing this ability when given some guidance. In order to be effective, healing must happen on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
Throughout our lives, we are constantly balancing and rebalancing our state of well being. Our thoughts and how we choose to perceive them are governed by our intentions. By tapping into this innate resource, you can always improve your health or any aspect of your life.
During my university studies in molecular biology, I have been fascinated by the dynamic nature of all molecules of life. Just the smallest change in structure or orientation of a biochemical has dramatic effects on our health. Metabolism is based on enzyme activity and these enzymes are directly influenced by our intentions and thoughts. You can now appreciate that there is no such thing as an idle or neutral thought. This should be a huge motivation for you to practise positive thoughts.
Specifically, just how are proteins chemically changed by intention? Every time we think a thought, many chemical reactions occur and every chemical reaction emits light. A thought actually becomes a “light emitter.” Our thoughts and intentions are constantly emitting light and this light directly influences all of the biochemicals in our body.
Quantum physics may sound complex, but for most of us, all we need to know about it is that all physical objects emit information as energy. In this way, all particles are fundamentally connected to everything else. What we perceive as separateness in physical terms is illusory as we are all part of a field of information that is transmitted as energy. This is the basic premise of how distant energy healing works. Some people have the ability to see or perceive subtle energy, often referred to as “aura.” The healer accesses this field of information in order to connect to another person and then deciphers it by putting the information into a form to which they can relate.
Healing is accomplished through various types of connections so a good place to start is to explain what I experience when healing. I feel/see images of interacting, vibrating frequencies connecting to a web or network of frequencies. Everyone has a unique frequency within this web of interconnectivity. I focus to reach a coherent energy frequency by altering mine, in order to get closer to the unique frequency of the person I am healing. This synchronization of frequencies occurs quickly and a more in-tune resonance results in more complete information being exchanged. Using my intentions, I then transfer the information to them so they can manifest positive health changes. This works most effectively if the person’s intention for better health is aligned with the healer’s intentions.
It is impossible to separate our physical being from emotional and spiritual levels in energy medicine. Each of us is a complete being of unique experiences connected to a greater energy or our global energy consciousness. Our awareness of this and how we are all uniquely connected to each other is ultimately how energy is the defining system of life itself.
Intention requires synchronizing conscious and subconscious thought patterns in order to invoke change. Visualizations provide conscious focus and if they are fuelled by emotional impact they are more powerful and can be easily aligned with subconscious thought. Have the greatest respect for your own ability to heal yourself and know that visualizations are an effective way to focus your intentions on healing.
Energy medicine is not new. It is ancient wisdom appearing throughout history in every culture. For thousands of years, indigenous cultures have described the energy force of health. Somehow, vital energy was dismissed from the modern scientific model of health because it is not easily measurable or fully understood. Yet there have always been some people who were able to see, feel and know its presence.
The ancient healing ideas and practices of my First Nations or Native American cultural roots have had a very profound influence on my work. I have had the privilege of participating as an invited healer in many sacred healing rituals, which have shaped my approach to energy healing. Elders, shamans and others have taught me many things about aboriginal culture, ceremonies and way of life. All understand the importance of energy in life and health and how it connects everything to everything else.
We are now at a crossroads where this ancient wisdom is becoming more mainstream. Leaders in science are discovering that we are far more complex than biochemical machines. We are senders and receivers of energy as information, which influences our health far beyond our conscious awareness.
Our modern medical system uses a reductionist view to the body in wellness and illness. This means that our bodies are viewed as separate organs and systems with distinct functions. Wellness is the proper functioning of these separate systems; illness is when one or more parts are dysfunctional. The fundamental flaw of this viewpoint is that by dividing the body up, it misses the crucial governing system. Each of us is innately aware that we are more than a collection of cells and biochemical reactions. Our energy system is the missing essence of our current medical model; that which makes us tick. It is the governing system within each of us and connects us to all other forms of life.
Real change can be made by examining and altering influences on our health, both external and internal. Externally, we are influenced by the attitudes and beliefs of our health care practitioner, media, school, work, friends and family.
Internally, we can adjust our limiting beliefs. Step out of self and listen carefully to what you are telling yourself. Are you your own worst critic? Do you judge yourself more harshly than you would anyone else? Are you less forgiving of yourself than you would be of anyone else? Negative self-talk can be changed. We can all modify our perception of our environment.
Specific visualizations are helpful in focusing your immune system on the source of an issue. Understanding our energy is the meeting of ancient wisdom and modern science. Understand how you can most efficiently and effectively focus your intentions on healing. Throughout our lives, we are constantly balancing and rebalancing our state of well being. Each of us has direct control over this process through our thoughts and how we choose to perceive them. By using your focused intentions, you can always improve your health or any aspect of your life by tapping into the power of information.
With some instruction, most people can more accurately see and feel this life force energy and use it in their own health and healing. Knowing of this energy system is an innate wisdom – one that we all have access to. Know what needs to change for your particular imbalance to be corrected efficiently. Know that metabolic processes are dynamic, allowing change to occur and then use your intentions to manifest this difference.
Self-healing knowledge resonates not only in your energetic field, but also in everyone’s consciousness that you have ever been connected to through thought, word or deed. As we access this ability, it is amplified through our inter-connectedness. Knowing that we all have an effect on each other leads to the acceptance of this greater global responsibility, or global consciousness. Energy systems govern all of life. Through helping ourselves, we ultimately help everyone in our global community.
