The old science paradigm assumes that life as we know it, it is just that which we can see and measure. Slowly various areas of sciences are embracing perception that in addition to flesh, living organisms have energetic component, which old ancient traditions knew for thousands of years.
The concept of aura has been depicted by painters on religious paintings and aura can be seen by psychic or people with abilities to read human energies.
In India sacred writings refer to this energy as prana and in China it is called ch'i and it is believed that this is the energy which flows through acupuncture points and Jewish mystical philosophies call it nefish.
DNA phantom effect proves in science lab that organisms even after removing portion of its physical and visible portion of their structure, still maintain unchanged energetic signature which can be detected with special cameras.
Due to new developments and newer technologies, what has been unseen or undetectable by previous instruments, can be shown now and nobody can deny anymore that there is nothing more to our lives than physical bodies.
The examples below are taken from the book The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.
Psychic and healers can sense or see human and other living organism energies and with practice can analyze them to determine health problems and help correct them.
Barbara Brennan who began her career as an atmospheric physicist working for NASA, became a healer after realizing that she had psychic abilities. According to Brennan, a person's psychological condition is also reflected in energy field.
She also believes that illness can be caused by blockages and imbalances in aura and by affecting other person's energy she can enhance person's healing process. Brennan also believes that human energy field is non-local and she is able to read it miles away, being with the person on the phone as far as on the other side of the globe.
Another medical professional, Dr. Dloroes Krieger became interested in human energy field and studied it under well-known clairvoyant Dora Kunz. Krieger understood potential of being able to manipulate human energy field and she has decide to teach to others what she has learned. She called the practice "therapeutic touch" and taught it to nurses in hospitals. Her course and teaching became so successful that it is now being used in hospitals around the world.
The effectiveness of "therapeutic touch" has been demonstrated in several studies. Dr Janet Quinn an associate professor and assistant director of nursing research a the University of South Carolina at Columbia devised a double-blind study in which she proved that therapeutic touch could lower the anxiety levels of heart patients.
Valerie Hunt a physical therapist and professor of kinesiology at UCLA, has developed a way to confirm experimentally the existence of the human energy filed. She has discovered that an electromyograph, a device used to measure the electrical activity in the muscles, can also pick up the electrical presence of the human energy field. Hunt also discovered that when an aura reader saw a particular color in person's energy filed, the electromyograph always picked up a specific pattern of frequencies that Hunt learned to associate with that color. The most significant finding Hunt made was that certain talents and abilities seem to be related to the presence of specific frequencies. She found that the more person is focused on the physical aspects of the world, the lower are the frequencies of (HEF), they are about 250 cps. On the other hand people who are psychics and healers have their frequencies in the range between 400 and 800 cps. People who can channel, have their frequencies between 800 and 900 cps. Above that are people with mystical abilities.
After seeing this video I first thought this is just young kid asking various questions and he will forget about it once he sees all the other kids around are ignoring what he believes is a serious problem. There are chances that this will happen, like many other things children lose when they are faced with existing education and growing up.
Three year old kid explains why he doesn't want to eat meat
Then I remembered statistics I have read once about children's creative abilities and how they go down as they age.
It has been determined that 80% of children in kindergarten display creative abilities which by the time they are in grade two, goes down to 10%.
Are schools and society simply killing abilities in children to have imagination and creativity? Is our society on the wrong path?
Is asking curious questions and ability to imagine only available to us up to age 6 when we are still forming our ego and personality?
Is uniqueness, asking questions, having courage to experiment, being able to make mistakes, being able to cooperate, initiate intelligent and mind inspiring activities, play games not fashionable anymore and not helping with success in our society?
It appears that schools today kill creativity. At least so thinks Sir Ken Robinson.
He believes that if you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never be original. Our society stigmatizes mistakes, so by the time we are adults we are afraid of making mistakes. We are educating people out of their creative capacity. The education has been designed to meet the needs of industrialism and arts are at the bottom of the school education ladder.
We have been told that as soon as scientists discover map of genetic codes (human genome project), medicinal discoveries will be able to cure any diseases and predict any potential issues one might have in terms of health.
In my previous articles I was presenting position of some scientists who don't believe that genes have any influence on life.
In article Are our lives predetermined? I was showing that identical twins separated at birth have similar psychological experiences and social likeness.
The purpose of this introduction is to show, that genes and our chemical balance are not the only factors in our conditions of health, but they are probably least factors of it.
As it is important to have proper balance of our body chemistry so biological process can take place, more important is our energetic flow and mental balance which determines that proper chemicals are created and that flow of energy in our body is not blocked. The best example that energy is more important in our body than biological processes is the fact that when most potent energy producing organ which is heart stops beating, our body instantly starts dying. There are not known examples of humans or higher living organisms whose lives were prolonged by artificial hearts. There are possible cases that people can be still alive when their brain is dead or large portion of it is.
One could say that with the time, people will be able to receive artificial hearts, but this might be very far away and possibly one can create heart which will be able to access energetic signature of the person or create one.
Let's now go to Placebo which is the topic of this article.
I want to postulate that placebo is most important component of every healing process. In fact I will be showing that anything else, like medication or medical treatments are only catalysts in the healing process and have only effect because we believe in them or because they are giving us temporary feeling of improvement, (which is important in strengthening our believe systems), and our body/mind afterwards by itself takes care of fighting the disease.
I want to also postulate that in majority of the miraculous cases there is no divine intervention, but strong believe of the subjects in the healer or medication which brings in them abilities which we consider unnatural.
Studies across the world have shown that imagination has profound effect on physical and athletic performance. It is know fact that after extensive studies across the world 35 percent of people who receive placebo will improve.
Examples below are taken from the book "The Holographic Universe" by Michael Talbot.
In one experiment psychologist Shlomo Breznitz, had several groups of soldiers march forty kilometers, but he gave each group different information.
Some only marched 30 kilometers and then they were told to go 10 more. Some were told they would march 60 km but only marched 40.
Breznitz determined that stress hormone levels in soldiers were showing the estimate not the actual kilometers marched.
In another experiment Russian scientists divided top athletes in four groups.
First group spent 100% time on their training.
The second group spent 75% of time on training and 25% on visualizing their activity
The third group spent 50% of their time on training and 50% on visulizing
the fourth spent 25% on training and 75% on visualizing
At the 1980 Winter Games in Lake Placid the fourth group showed the greatest improvement, then the group 3, 2 and 1.
In another experiment by physician Larry Dossey, subjects who were chronic headache sufferers were asked to keep diary of frequency and severity of their headaches. What startled the researchers was that the headache sufferers were not able to keep the diaries because their headaches disappeared. The experiment had to be aborted due to lack of data.
In similar experiment epileptic children were filmed during their interaction with their parents and then shown the film. After it most of the children would not experience the seizures, realizing what triggered it.
In 1950s condition called angina pectoris has been treated through surgery. One surgeon conducted an experiment in which he just cut patient open and then sewed him back. It turned out that condition of the patient improved as it would be given regular procedure.
Similarly conditions like migraine, headaches, allergies, fever, the common cold, acne, asthma, warts, various kinds of pain, nausea, peptic ulcers, psychiatric syndrome such as anxiety, rheumatoid and degenerative arthritis, diabetes, radiation sickness, Parkinsonism, multiple sclerosis and cancer has been proven to be cured through placebo in lab environment.
Warts were treated successfully with painting them with harmless purple dye.
In nine double-blind studies comparing placebos to aspirin, in 54 percent proved placebo as effective as actual drug. In six double-blind studies placebos were found in 56% percent to be as effective as morphine.
Video below shows presentation be Gregg Braden. In that presentation in real time patient with internal tumor is being healed by power of mind. Cure all Illnesses in 3 minutes!!! Spread LOVE not HATE!!!
In another example reported by psychologist Bruno Klopfer, a cancer patient had advanced lymphoma. The patient had been given all possible treatments and he was getting worse by the day. His entire body had tumors of the size of oranges and his internal organs were so enlarged that liquids from his chest had to be drained every day. The patient heard about new drug which was still under testing and he begged his doctor to give it to him. The doctor reluctantly administered the drug through injection and went home for the weekend. The doctor didn't expect patient to last till Monday. On Monday the patient's tumor were half the size and he was walking around. 10 days later patient was released from hospital cancer free.
After two months the patient learned from the news that drug which helped him, was determined to be infective in curing lymphoma. The patient got depressed and his cancer returned, he was admitted again to hospital.
Since the doctor didn't have anything better to offer to the patient, he injected him with the water and told him he got more potent version of the mentioned drug. The results were again instant, his tumors disappeared and he was again released from hospital cancer free. After another two months, news broke out that this drug called Krebiozen is totally worthless and American Medical Association doesn't recommend it. His cancer again returned and he died within two days.
All these examples show that believe is overriding factual science and if circumstances can create conditions in which person believes can be altered to convince person that procedure or drug is helpful, power of mind creates conditions in which body heals itself.
Possibly we are simply helped by drugs because we are told they are helpful and everybody around us strengthens this believe by giving us support and hope.
All this points that our body/mind abilities have unimaginable powers and what only inhabits them is lack of our believes in them or believes which are imprinted in our psyche which are limiting it.
