Energy Healing and Modern Medicine

Early in my ministry, I had the opportunity to study with a small group of enlightened nuns who taught me how to administer energy healing in the form of “laying on of hands” to heal the sick. The sick could be any kind of dis-ease, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual.

In those early days, I used this practice with varying degrees of success. It made me wonder if I could increase my effectiveness by embracing and combining other healing modalities? This began my continued quest to seek out and understand new methods of administering energy healing.

Most people cannot wrap their heads around the idea that someone (really anyone) can plug-in to the power source of all life, all that there is (was) and ever will be, and direct this energy to heal the human body, mind and/or soul with more accuracy and efficacy than any hospital, doctor, or drug therapy.

While the medical community will do anything to discount the veracity of the claims of those who have been healed by energy healing methods, the fact remains that statistically, these energy healing methods are every bit as effective (if not more so) when compared to modern medical interventions.

Modern medicine does have a statistical advantage over emergent trauma intervention, thanks to an organizational organizational-wide emergent response system that is quite effective in our present-day society. These efforts to establish such a system should be applauded and honored.

Medical schools teach doctors to prescribe medications which are proving that while they may relieve a particular discomfort (which is highly beneficial) some pharmaceuticals might not have good long-term effects on the human body over time. This will bear itself out by reading the small-print on any flyer accompanying a designer pharmaceutical drug or alternatively attempting to listen to the fast-talking announcer reading the disclosure of side effects following a drug commercial.

It makes you wonder why so many people are eager to take prescription medication with the potential of having so many side effects, some of which may include death? No problem, the drug industry responds, we have a prescription for each of those side effects as they appear (and each of those comes with its own set of side effects).

This is why you’re seeing more and more people turning to energy medicine and more natural remedies.

Long before there were patented designer drugs, there were medicine women and healers who rose up within a community. These natural healers used whatever means they had at their disposal to administer healing throughout their communities.

The requirements to be a healer were basic enough. If you healed people, you were a healer and people in the community came to you and supported your gift of healing. If you did not heal, or God forbid, if your patients died, you were forced to find a more suitable vocation.

Not so in modern medicine.

Note that most modern medicines, which may be invaluable in the saving of human life in critical situations, do not appear anywhere in nature, which makes them difficult for the body to process over time, even though they are often chemical recreations of substances found in nature which God has provided us for healing purposes.

In side-by-side comparisons, there are advantages to both energy healing and modern medicine. Except to the negative effects of long-term prescription medication usage, they both have their merits, though tapping into the life power source of the universe has many advantages over modern medicine.

Among other advantages, one is the ability to administer healing over time and space without having to be within the immediate proximity of the patient. This is referred to as distance healing.

Other huge benefits include healing of past wounds, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual all at the same time (or within a very short time), with little or no side effects.

This is why energy healing is creating competition for psychotherapy in our modern society.
Since modern medicine is promoted by the government, natural energy healing and “spiritual” interventions are disregarded as being ridiculous or practicing witchcraft and in many cases are considered illegal practices (if not practiced correctly) which are crimes against The State.

If you practice natural healing modalities, there is some concern that the government will fine you, jail you, even send you to prison for helping to heal people who come to you for help, if you can believe that.

Thankfully, for those of us who choose to seek out natural healing and energy medicines, there is no law against you doing so for yourself if you are of age. Though if you are making the decision to seek out natural healing alternatives for your minor child, there may be legal exposure to you for doing so.

All of this said, note that increasingly more progressive hospitals are inviting natural healers to frequent their campuses and integrate energy medicine with modern medicine. Why? Because patients who use a combination of medical and natural modalities recover and heal more rapidly with longer-lasting results than those who do not.

Go figure that.

So, the next time you come down with something that might need medical attention, what will you do?

Will you rush off to the doctor, or seek a form of natural medicine or energetic healing?

Alternative Medicine and Natural Remedies

I know this is a tender subject. When you talk about alternative medicine and natural remedies, people start to roll their eyes and imagine you dancing with a rattle in a grass skirt, like some kind of cartoon witch doctor. A toast to the powers that be responsible for brainwashing the general population, hat’s off to a job well done. We’ve all been duped and we don’t even know. That is unless you do know…

If you do know, maybe you’re like me and you’ve seen in impact or natural holistic health modalities which embrace the idea of natural medicine as an alternative to patented designer prescription medications.

As a matter of fact, I’ve witnessed natural cures (I realize I’m not qualified to use the word, “cure,”) using simple techniques and herbal medicine that have far-surpassed whatever promises the medical community might make.

I’ve known many people who were given six months to live. For those who simply accepted their dire diagnosis, they passed away within a year.

For the others who sought to fight the doctor’s death sentence, with alternative medicine and natural remedies, guess what? You guessed it, and something deep inside you knows it’s true. They are all living their lives fully and joyously.

What do the doctors have to say about this when they are confronted by their self-healing now healthy beyond belief patients? They all have this response down pat, “It’s either a misdiagnosis or a miracle.”

There is nothing miraculous about the healing of themselves, except for this:

The miracle of the human body to heal itself while accelerating natural healing with what mother nature has provided for us. Our planet and its inhabitants are perfectly matched and attuned to work in concert for our highest and best outcome.

Everything you could possibly need was placed here on earth before we were put here. We experience life in the most comprehensive closed system, which is in itself is one of the most amazing miracles, confounding the highest thinkers of time since our introduction to this planet.

Nothing is more natural than having the ability to heal yourself; this is what your body was designed for.

If this is true (and you know it is), then why is it illegal to honestly tell your story? There are people who have boldly proclaimed the power of natural healing and natural cures. Where are they now?

The answer is so impossible to imagine that I won’t even attempt to offer any suggestions. Suffice it to say, in general, they do not continue their professing natural cures for very long until their voice slowly fades into the confusion of obscurity.

I have long been a supporter of natural healing, studied and practiced in various areas of alternative health care, though this is not the main focus of my personal calling. I was first so impressed early in my ministerial career, at how effective prayer was in initiating spontaneous healing, this sparked my interest in natural healing.

And believe me, if you’re seeking out natural remedies or an active participation in holistic health, consider spirituality as part of the comprehensive therapeutic approach. A little belief goes a long way. The integration and calling upon a higher power can make all the difference.

If we can agree that all disease affects three separate but unified parts of us, our body, our mind and our soul, then neglecting the soul can hinder your healing and wellness significantly.

Can natural healing be accomplished without spiritual integration? Absolutely, but the results are far greater and more rapid with your heart connected to the source of all life.

If you think you’re ready to take responsibility for your own health, the good news is, Google is a good repository for the otherwise hidden jewels for natural remedies. You can pretty much find anything you could possibly think of, though much of the information is anecdotal, and you will find a lot of people swearing that considering any of these natural cures is dangerous, if not lethal.

Be smart about it. Exercise your due diligence and see what dies. If you’ve been given six months to live, it may not be you, it might be your belief in what you’ve been trained to believe about health and medicine.
