The Theory Behind Integrated Energy Healing
“We are the same as plants, as trees, as other people, as the rain that falls. We consist of that which is around us, we are the same as everything.” – The Buddha
The type of energy work I practice is based on an ancient energetic view of the world and of human beings within that world. And it is a view that is now being validated by the most recent science.
Ancient civilisations have long believed in the primacy of energy: what appears to be solid is really composed of energies vibrating at different frequencies. And there are different words for this energy in different cultures: the Indians call this life force energy “prana”, to the Chinese it is “chi” and to the Japanese it is “ki.”
In recent history in the west, however, this early wisdom has been superseded by a materialistic world view that separates energy from matter. Life has been reduced to the mechanistic and the physical; only that which can be physically observed and rationally explained is real.
However, more than one hundred year ago now, in 1905, Einstein’s findings, and the beginning of quantum physics supplied scientific evidence for what the ancients had always intuitively known. Einstein showed that matter ultimately consists of energy. That which appears to be solid, be it a stone, a tree, an animal or a human being is actually composed of energy.
Human Energy Field
How is this information related to the energy work I practice? In line with the new physics and ancient Indian and Chinese medicine, Integrated Energy Healing sees a human being as made up of more than just the physical: our physical bodies are the material manifestation of a multilayered structure often called the “aura” or the “Human Energy Field.”
And within the Human Energy Field, there are seen to be whirling vortexes of energy called “chakras” or energy centres. The diagram below shows the chakras and Human Energy Field on a female figure.
Integrated Energy healing is based on the view that when disharmony or disease occurs within the physical body, it has been preceded by a disturbance in the energy field. Bringing the energy flows back to balance by working on them through Integrated Energy Healing in turn affects the physical and leads to healing at a cellular level in the physical body.
As well as a physical body then, we have a mental body, an emotional body and an astral body, which contain all our past experiences. We also have subtle bodies of higher frequencies which correspond to universal will, love and wisdom: the true self which is beyond our own history, and which was never born and will never die.
Similarly, the lower three chakras hold energetic information regarding our physical experience: survival issues, sexuality and individuation. The heart chakra, our ability to give and receive love, is the bridge between the lower chakras and the higher chakras. The higher three chakras hold information to do with communication, seeing our direction in life, and seeing and surrendering to the bigger picture.
Physical healing can occur by working with various energy healing techniques to balance the chakras and the different levels of the energy field.
