” A new idea is first condemned as ridiculous and then dismissed as trivial until finally, it becomes what everybody knows.” —- William James
What is energy medicine?
How is it different from allopathic medicine?
What benefits does it offer a person that he or she cannot gain from conventional medicine?
Though these may appear to be questions that can be answered simply, they are not. They represent the fact that we have entered an energetic era in which we will redefine our understanding of ourselves. Soon we will come to know ourselves as multi-sensory, rendering obsolete the belief that we are five-sense creatures. No longer will we speculate about whether our thought and emotions have creative authority within our cell tissue; we will come to consider that form or perception as one of the central truths of life. To understand this new material, it is necessary to enter into a new Paradigm. We will view as ordinary such healing modalities as the laying on of hands; Reiki, Quantum Touch, EFT, Acupressure, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Aromatherapy, Essential Oils, Flower Essences, Sound Healing, Chrystal Therapy, Herbal healing, Emotion Code, etc. The belief that repressing an illness through drugs is of use to the healing process will come to be seen as harmful rather than as beneficial.
Medical paradigms determine how we think about our bodies. Western medicine has identified evil spirits, humors, germs, and viruses as causes of disease and has designed treatments accordingly. Western Medicine and Complimentary Medicine both are needed and as technologies in medicine advance and as we learn more about our mind-body connections, our medical paradigms are shifting—–new paradigms give rise to new possibilities.
