Energy-field body: The Ketheric Template body
Expression of Consciousness: Higher Concepts
Statement Consciousness makes: "I know. I am"
Consciousness is expressed in higher concepts of knowing or belief systems. This is where the initial creative impulse begins; not just linear knowing, but integrated knowing."
Plane of existence: Spiritual Plane
Chakra: Sahasrara (Crown)
The Ketheric Template or Causal Body (Seventh Layer)"The seventh level is the mental level of the spiritualplane called the ketheric template. It extends from about two and one halfto three and one half feet (75 to 105 cm) from the body.
When we bringour consciousness to the seventh level of the aura, we know that we areone with the Creator.
The outer form is the egg shape of the aura bodyand contains all the auric bodies associated with the present incarnationan individual is undergoing.
This body, too, is a highly structured template.It appears to my vision as composed of tiny threads of gold-silver lightof very strong durability that hold the whole form of the aura together.It contains a golden grid structure of the physical body and all the chakras.
When "tuning" into the frequency level of theseventh layer, I perceive beautiful golden shimmering light that is pulsatingso fast that I use the term "shimmering!' It looks like thousands of goldenthreads.
The golden egg form extends out beyond the body some three tothree and a half feet depending on the person with the smaller tip beneaththe feet and the larger end about three feet above the head. It can expandeven more, if the person is very energetic. The outer edge actually lookslike an eggshell to me; it appears to have a thickness of about a quarterto a half inch (6 to 13 mm).
This outer part of the seventh layer is verystrong and resilient, resistant to penetration and protects the field justas an eggshell protects the chick. All the chakras and body forms appearto be made of golden light on this level. This is the strongest, most resilientlevel of the auric field.
It could be likened to a standing lightwave ofintricate shape and form vibrating at an extremely high rate. One can almosthear a sound when looking at it.
I'm sure a sound could be heard if onemeditated on such a picture. The golden template level also contains themain power current that runs up and down the spine and is the main powercurrent that nourishes the whole body.
As this golden power current pulsatesup and down the spine, it carries energies through the roots of each chakraand connects the energies that are taken in through each chakra.
The main vertical power current induces othercurrents at right angles to it to form golden streamers that extend directlyoutward from the body.
These in turn induce other currents that circlearound the field, so that the entire auric field and all the levels belowit are surrounded and held within this basket-like network.
This networkshows the power of the golden light, the divine mind that holds the wholefield together in its entirety and its integrity.
In addition, in the ketheric template level arealso the past life bands within the eggshell.
These are colored bandsof light which completely encircle the aura and can be found anywhere onthe eggshell surface.
The band found near the head-neck area is usuallythe band containing the past life that you are working to clear in yourpresent life circumstance. Jack Schwarz speaks of these bands and how totell their meaning by their color.
The ketheric level is the lastauric level in the spiritual plane. It contains the life plan and is thelast level directly related to this incarnation.
Beyond this level is thecosmicplane, the plane that cannot be experienced from the limiting view pointof only one incarnation.

The Causal/Soul Body is named "Causal" because it is the originating source of each personality that incarnates in each lifetime. It is the sourceof your personality, causing it to be and exist.
When your personality ends,the essence of you is absorbed back into the Causal Body.
It is the first levelof your individuality that is relatively immortal as the Causal Body exists formany millions of years, during your journey as a human through manyincarnations or lifetimes.
Animals have yet to obtain a Causal Body andsuper-humans that are liberated from the cycle of rebirth discard the CausalBody and move on to higher levels.
The word"Soul" is used as a label for many bodies or human aspects by various religions and cultures.
Generally it is meant to designate the innermostindividuality. Limitations of perception has caused this label to be applied tothe astral body, the mental body and other inner aspects.
Here it is applied tothe Causal Body because it is the pinnacle of personal consciousness.
The Causal Body is the depository for all consciousness and virtues cultivated in each personality life time; especially developed will/power, love-wisdom, and creative intelligence.
It is built out of all the benefits of all past lives.It is the treasure chest that safekeeps the fruits of all past experiences. Itis the vehicle that facilitates the unfolding of consciousness that we use physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
It is the vehicle for humanimmortality, whether a personality is in incarnation or not.
Range of Consciousness:
The Causal Body/Soul is the central focal point of consciousness itself for the entire human being. Therefore its range of consciousness includes the physical,etheric, emotional/astral, mental/intellectual. As it awakens spiritually it becomes aware of other souls on its own level and participates in a universe and an existence independent of the personality. The Soul's life is one of unity, group consciousness, love, wisdom, bliss, and purpose. As it spirituallyawakens with the aid of the meditating personality, it extends its range of consciousness into the Higher Mind.
The CausalBody has two additional mental/manasic senses: Response to Group Vibration(used to find its soul group), and Spiritual Telepathy (used to communicate with other souls), is a key component to ones ability to "dimensionalize" or to manifest and bring about change.
It is the liaison and caveat between thought form, emotional form and physical material form.
When a human being is consciously living they are very aware of nurturing their casual body and work in a spiritual practice to maintain it in a state of well being. When a human being is not aware of their energy, or consciously living the causal body drops into the unconscious and is sometimes called "The Shadow" (See Carl Jung), "Pain Body" (see Eckart Tolle), "The Dark Side".
Within a balanced spiritual practice the causal body is a key component in turning ones concepts into material manifestation delightfully.
In an imbalanced practice one would blame the world around them for that which is experienced and not take responsibility for how they contribute to or manifest the experience.
The Causal Bodyalso known as the Spiritual Body is a body of consciousness associated with your true spiritual path and direction in life. It is your highest potential and reflects your ability to manifest your souls true potential here on earth.
The essence of your soul's reality is the expression "to be" and this ultimately is the reason for your existence. It has the highest vibration of the auric bodies and depending on the development of your spiritual nature.
It appears as a whitish glow and contains your true spiritual essence.
"Casual consciousness deals with the essence of a subject while the mental level studies the subject's detail. The casual body deals with the essence of substance and the true causes behind the illusion of appearance... The causal plane is a world of realities... deals with essence and underlying nature of things in question. Healing at this level is more powerful than the mental body." (Gerber)

The Mental Body facilitates cognition, the faculty of knowing. It gives you the ability to discern, and to have thoughts, beliefs, concepts, and higher psychic abilities.
Range of Consciousness:
Mental consciousness ranges from discernment of the very specific, detailed,particular to the discernment of the very general, inclusive, abstract. Separative, distinguishing thought to unitive, embracing thought.
The five mental senses are: Higher Clairaudiance (mental hearing), Planetary Psychometry(mental feeling), Higher Clairvoyance (mental sight), Discernment (mentalequivalent of taste), and Spiritual Discernment (mental equivalent of smell).
The Mental Body has its own range of feeling. When there is excessive focus within the limiting, separative range of thought then there is judgment, mental fear, anddepression. When thought expands into the more unitive ranges then there is compassionate-understanding, peace, joy, awe, and bliss.
It is filled with light - primarily white, blue and gold, although the full range of pastel colors are common.
Mental consciousness is more objective, factual, and impersonal than astral consciousness. However, individual personality and character reach their pinnacle of development in mental consciousness.
The Mental Body has a figure like form in the shape of the Physical Body. It also has an aura that is ovoid shaped with pointed ends. The aura extends about 4 to 10 feet from the Physical Body. It has 7major energy centers, 21 minor energy centers, and many smaller centers, just like the etheric and astral bodies.
Radiations of light extend from the heart area.
The Spiritual body (the second of the subtle energy bodies) is the blueprint to your spiritual potential. However, it requires the creation of patterns of energy for this potential to be expressed and experienced. These patterns of energy are stored in the Mental body as thoughts - both conscious and sub-conscious.
The patterns stored within the mental body creates the character framework for the soul to project its personality. The "self" manifests and expresses concrete intellect through the mental body.
This body appears as a golden yellow light radiating out and around the head and shoulders and extending around the whole body. It expands and becomes brighter when its owner is concentrating on mental processes.
The mental body filtrates thoughts down to the emotional body which reacts to the thoughts with an emotional association be it love, fear, happiness, anger, and so forth. A balanced mental body will provide an individual with clarity and direction.
The substance that composes the Mental Body deals with thoughts and mental processes. They are sometimes called "thought forms."The Mental Body is the region where our thought forms are initiated.
Thus, what we think can affect both us and those with whom we are in contact. On one hand, if we lead our lives in a positive and helpful way and think lots of lovely thoughts toward others and ourselves, then we feel well. On the other hand, if we lead our lives with negativity, hatred, pessimism, grief, sorrow, and depressive tendencies, thenthose thoughts are eventually reflected in our physical make-up.
The Intellectual mental Body by itself is not subject to the laws of automation; that is to say, the intellectual body is capable of a degree of free will beyond that of the astral body.
Also, the perceptions of the intellectual body are capable of being of an objective nature in matters regarding both one's self, and things outside of one's self.
An intellectual body is considered a prerequisite to maintaining a state of "objective consciousness" which is the fourth possible state of man.
The energetic understanding of the brain and the mental body is fantastic. Spiritual awakening begins when one steps outside of the analytical confines of brain patterning because spirit can not be perceived as logic.
In understanding of the brain we activate a higher form of genetics, awaken the 6th chakra, the higher mind, and begin re patterning the hypothalamus and center inside of the pituitary for an overall sense of well being.
We begin assuring the lymbic system and reptilian mind of celebration resting the fears of the small self and step outside of the ego control over the thought centers and allow the spirit to take over the function of mental conceptualization. With this one can open their full spectrum within the playing field of limitless possibilities.
The mental body gives off waves of energy electrical in nature, in synchronicity with the emotional body the mental/emotional emanation combined are the electromagnetic dynamic which effectuates harmony and balance.

The Astral Body, emotional body, gives you the ability to have desires, emotions, imagination,and psychic abilities. To thought it lends power which is essential for effective action and manifestation.
Range of Consciousness:
Astral consciousness includes the full range of emotions from fear, hate, and sorrow to love, happiness, and ecstasy.)
It also includes the full range ofdesire from totally selfish and destructive desire to common personal desire tohigh spiritual aspiration to selfless serviceful desire.
Astral experiences include dreams, fantasies,out of body experiences, near death experiences, hallucinations, imagination,and visions.
The five astral senses are: Clairaudiance(astral hearing), Psychometry (astral touch/feeling), Clairvoyance (astralsight), Imagination (astral equivalent of taste), and Emotional Idealism(astral equivalent of smell).
Astral consciousness and the Astral Universe includes anything imaginable, from the worst possible hells to the most glorious heavens.
The Astral Universe contains an astral replica of the higheruniverses. It is filled with imagery, feeling, and above all a personal pointof view.
The Astral Body has a figure form in the shape of the Physical Body and an aurausually in an ovoid shape pointed at both ends.
The aura extends about 4 to 9feet from the Physical Body. It has 7 major energy centers, 21 minor energycenters, and many smaller centers, just like the etheric body.
It is constantly changing color, dark to brilliant colors depending upon your mood.
Is the third body. The outer border of the Emotional (Astral) Body follows roughly the outline shape of the Etheric Body with an outer boundary of approximately ten to twelve inches(twenty-five to thirty centimeters).
Barbara Ann Brennan in her excellent bookHands of Light writes, "This body interpenetrates the denser bodies that it surrounds. Its colors vary from brilliant clear hues to dark muddy ones.
Clear and highly energized feelings such as love, excitement, joy or anger are bright and clear ; those feelings that are confused are dark and muddy" (1987). Brennan is agifted healer and clairvoyant and is able to describe the Emotional (Astral)Body in great detail.
The ability to read the Emotional (Astral) Body in this way may take many years of learning experience.
In the Emotional Body, multitudes of different changes are constantly taking place, though an individual may or may not be aware of those changes. Each person is literally bombarded by stimuli from both external and internal sources.
The main fanction of the Emotional Body is to act like a filtration system in a similar way to the Etheric Body. Only when there is imbalance inthe Emotional Body or with the chakras that penetrate it do we become consciousof a shift from our normal state of being.
Changes in the Emotional Body canultimately lead to changes and hence symptoms in the Physical Body.
The Emotional Body (the third of the subtle energy bodies) is more fluid and of a higher vibration than the etheric body.
It appears as colored clouds in continual motion, reflecting the quality and intensity of the emotions.
This is the part of you that likes to "jump out" in times of trauma and shock, to produce a feeling of emotional numbness, which will allow you to slowly integrate the knowledge of the shock in your own way.
The Emotional body, which is also known as the Astral body, is the seat of your emotions. It is the bridge between the mind and the physical body.
Your emotional energy governs your fears and hopes, loves and pains. It governs the extent and nature of one's personality expression upon the physical plane.
This body is the projection of your longings, moods, feelings, appetites, and fears. The emotional "self" is the expression of your mental "self" thus the emotional body is the expression of the mental body.
The energy of the emotional body impacts the Etheric body, which in turn impacts the physical body.
Consequently emotional blockages prevent the manifestation of clarity of thought and direction in the physical body.
The astral body is made of matter of very fine texture as compared withthe visible body, and has a great tensile strength, so that it changesbut little during a lifetime, while the physical alters every moment....The matter of which it is composed is electrical and magnetic in its essence,...

The Etheric Body gives vitality, health, life and organization to the Physical Body. It attunes our consciousness to the principle of Energy. It steps energiesfrom the higher bodies down into our physical consciousness.
Range of Consciousness:
An awareness of various types of subtle energy moving through the Physical Body and in the environment. Subtle/etheric energy can be seen as well as felt.
The Etheric Body is the subtle level of the Physical Body. It is composed of various energies such as electromagnetic, chi, prana, ki, vitality, etc. It isalso composed of subatomic particles, the finest of which are quarks.
The Etheric Body (the fourth of the subtle energy bodies) appears as a bluish-grey colour or shadow, extending approximately one inch from the physical body. It is responsible for the transfer of life energy or vitality from the universal energy field to the physical body.
The Etheric body is a body of Etheric or subtle matter which furnishes the basic blue print for the physical body. Every cell in the physical body has an etheric counterpart.
This body also serves as a filtration system. Universal life force energy filters down through the Spiritual, Mental, Emotional and Etheric Bodies into the physical body. The Etheric Body is the interface between the physical body and the other subtle bodies of the Aura.
When the flow of this energy is disrupted, the physical body is affected and if this imbalance is not corrected, illness and dis-ease can manifest in the physical body. There is a synergistic relationship between each subtle body of the aura.

The Etheric Body has a figure form in the same shape as the Physical Body.
This figure form is made of numerous energy channels called nadis or meridians.
There are seven major energy centers, called chakras, that are connected to the endocrine glands and process seven main types of consciousness.
There are 21 minor energy centers and many smal lerenergy centers.
The Etheric Body has two auric layers. The first extends about one foot from the Physical Body. The second extends aboutthree or more feet from the Physical Body.
Each auric layer has luminousstring-like hairs that radiate out and always move in wave like motions. From the inner body, sparkles of vitality move outwards.
The etheric body is the conditioning vehicle upon which the physical body is built and is the means whereby lifeforce energy is transmitted from all the higher dimensions to animate the physical body.
It is the inner substantial form upon which the physical body is built or constructed. It is the inner scaffolding which underlies every part of the whole outer being. It is the framework which sustains the whole. It is the inner structure on which the outer form is patterned.
Regulating the chakras, it comprises the network of nadis which constitute the count
part or the duplicate aspect of the entire nervous system which forms such an important part of the human mechanism.
The etheric body is most definitely, along with the blood stream, the instrument of the lifeforce.
So, the etheric field is the matrix of the physical, emotional and mental bodies manifested as a unified reality. It is the divine pulse and matrix that holds everything together. It is the principle of life.
It is through the etheric field that the past, present and future, mind, emotions and the physical all come together and can be healed.
The soul pours its consciously directed energy into the dense physical body through the medium of the etheric body.
This is composed of the following:
Lines of force and of points where these lines of force cross each other; in crossing they form centres of energy.
Where many such lines often cross each other there is a larger centre of energy, and where great streams of energy meet and cross, as they do in the head and up the spine, these are the seven major energy gateways/centres (chakras);
Forty-nine minor centres of force. These are found scattered all over the body;Streams of energy, which connect all the centres into two systems - one major and one minor - which radiate out from the centres all over the entire body;The nadis (infinitesimal small threads of energy or force fibres which radiate out from every part of the network and underlie every part of the triple system).
There are millions of nadis and they produce the sensitive response apparatus through which we work and of which the mechanism of the five senses is one of the externalizations.
A healthy etheric body/field manifests as a group collective consciousness within humanity that embodies the soul.
How Does the Etheric Body get Damaged?
The opposite manifestation of the etheric body/field is the astral field which separates the physical, emotional and mental bodies and manifests personality with symptoms of suffering, desire, illusion, delusion and glamour.
The astral field draws the physical, emotional and mental bodies down in vitality into disease and density, bringing about a lack of receptivity and veiling the inner light of the etheric body/field.
Astral qualities such as bad habits, vices, etc violate the physical, emotional and mental bodies.
The etheric body shrivels and the physical, emotional and mental bodies harden and habitual patterns form. The soul suffers greatly from an inability to live properly within the physical-etheric body.
Worry, fear, doubt and other low vibrational negative energies cause congestion in the etheric body/field's network of fine energy lines which supply you with your lifeforce.
If there is weakness between the etheric body and the outer form, obviously difficulties will result which could take the following form:
The physical form in its dense aspect is too loosely connected with the etheric form or counterpart. This leads to a devitalized and debilitated condition which predisposes you to sickness or ill health;The connection is poor in certain directions or aspects.
Through certain focal points or centres the lifeforce cannot flow adequately, with consequential weakness in some parts of the physical body;
The connection can be basically so loose and poor that the soul has very little hold upon its vehicle for outer manifestation, and obsession or possession can be established.Various ways of maintaining good health clear, balance and energise the etheric body.
According with Barbara Ann Brennan in her book, HANDSOF LIGHT, the Etheric Body(from "ether", the state between the energy and matter)is composed of tiny energy lines "like a sparkling web oflight beams" similar to the lines on a television screen.
It has the same structure as the physical body including all theanatomical parts and all the organs. The color of the ethericbody varies from light blue to gray.
The light blue color has been connected to a finer form than the gray; a more sensitive person with a sensitive body willtend to have a bluish 1st layer, whereasa more athletic, robust type of person will tend to have a more grayish etheric body.
All the chakras of this layer are thesame color as the body. That is, they will also range betweenblue to gray in color.
Accounts of the Etheric Body
Lingasarira is a Sanskrit term for the invisible double of the human body, theetheric body or etheric double (or astral body in some Theosophical concepts).It is one of the seven principles of the human being, according to Theosophicalphilosophy.
RudolfSteiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, often referred to the etheric body (Ätherleibor "Life Body") in association with the etheric formative forces andthe evolution of man and the cosmos.
According to him, it can be perceived by aperson gifted with clairvoyance as being of "peach-blossom color".
Steiner considered the etheric reality or life principle as quite distinct from thephysical material reality, being intermediate between the physical world andthe astral or soul world.
The etheric body can be characterised as the lifeforce also present in the plant kingdom. It maintains the physical body's formuntil death. At that time, it separates from the physical body and the physicalreverts to natural disintegration.
Accordingto Max Heindel's Rosicrucianwritings, the etheric body, composed of four ethers, is called the "VitalBody" since the ether is the way of ingress for vital force from the Sunand the field of agencies in nature which promote such vital activities asassimilation, growth, and propagation.
It is an exact counterpart of ourphysical body, molecule for molecule, and organ for organ, but it is of theopposite polarity.
It is slightly larger, extending about one and one-halfinches beyond the periphery of the physical body.
Onthe Tree of Life of the Kabbalah, the vital body is often related to thesephirah Yesod.
Some researcher in this matter have produced drawings and paintings that recordtheir perceptions of the etheric body; see Leadbeater's Man Visible and Invisible for one example.
The images produced by Kirlian photography bearobvious resemblances to these graphics, showing a spiky-looking energy fieldextending a few inches around the human body (as well as other biological specimens,like leaves, and objects like coins).
The fact that Kirlian photography cancapture the acupuncture points of the body links the technology with conceptsof prana, qi, bioplasma, and related ideas and theories.
For some believers inthe etheric body, Kirlian photography provides important supportingevidence—though skeptics are generally not swayed.
Relation to physics
A Newconcept appears in physics, the most important invention since Newton's time:The field. It needed great scientific imagination to realize that it is not thecharges nor the particles but the field in space between the charges and theparticles which is essential for the description of physical phenomena....
In the beginning, the field concept was no more than a means of facilitating the understanding of phenomena from themechanical point of view....
The recognition of the new concept grew steadily,until substance was overshadowed by the field. It was realized that somethingof great importance had happened in physics.
A new reality was created, a new concept for which there was no place in the mechanical description.
Slowly and by a struggle the field concept established for itself a leading place in physics and has remained as one of the basic physical concepts.
The electromagneticfield is, for the modern physicist, as real as the chair on which he sits.
The conception of the dynamic [mass-free energy] aether, possessing afluid-crystal structure, sub-divided in different levels of density, withdensity proportional to the density of any physical substance occupying thearea of space concerned, increasing around large bodies such as stars andplanets, acting as a refracting medium, affecting the speed of propagation oflight and conveying electromagnetic forces, etc.—for all the experimental data and astronomical observations currently cited in support of the special andg eneral theories of relativity, including the phenomena known as vacuum energyand other unsolved problems in physics that baffles the current standardtheories. It should also be noted that the internal inconsistencies and unwarranted assumptions of standard relativity theory have been pointed out bydozens of scientists. It must be re-iterated, though, that these ideas should in no way be construed asbeing indicative of generally accepted scientific opinion on the subject.

The Physical Body
The Physical Body provides an experience of complete separation, which is unavailable in any
other body. This experience of separation clarifies persona lcharacter and the essence of
individuality. The Physical Body also provides stability, a solid foundation for all the other
bodies. The Physical Body also assists in the crystallization of consciousness - any lessons
learned while in a Physical Body, any experiences processed through it, become clearly
defined and permanent consciousness as result of the Physical Body's separative and
stabilizing influence. This is why the Physical Body is so valuable in ourgrowth process.
Range of Consciousness:
The five physical sensory organs giving perceptions of sight, sound, touch,taste, and smell
limited to solid, liquid, and gaseous matter - painful and not painful. The five physical organs of
action: hands (grasping, etc.), feet(motion), digestive system (eating and excreting), throat
(speaking), and genitals (sex and reproduction).
THE PHYSICAL BRAIN IS NOT A SOURCE OF EXPERIENCE , while areas of the brain are
associated with different consciousness functions, many neuroscientists do admit that they
cannot locate emotions, mind, and soul in the brain. Nor can they fully explain the human
psyche with neuroanatomy.
THE PHYSICAL BRAIN IS A RELAY STATION, translating emotional, mental, and spiritual
events and information into neuro-electro chemical events and information.
NEUROCHEMICALS AND ASSOCIATED BRAIN PROCESSES ARE SIMPLY CHANNEL SELECTORS FOR VARIOUS STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS.
All states of consciousness exist independent of the physical body. This relay station works in
both directions: spiritual, mental, or emotional states trigger neuro-electrochemical events in
the brain (physical consciousness) and neurochemical stimulation (for example through drugs)
open access to specific states of emotion, thought, or spiritual awareness.
The Physical Body is composed of the energy states of solids, liquids, and gases and is
dependent upon the Etheric Body for its vitality, life, organization, and many processes that
result in health.
Looking at a person from a purely energetic viewpoint, the physical or dense body has little
significance. A yogi or sage, for example, would not be interested in a Physical Body condition
just a person's emotional and spiritual make-up. To therest of us, it is the body that is treated
using physical therapy,manipulation, acupuncture, and massage therapy. Most importantly, the
body shows us the signs and symptoms of energy imbalance when tested.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a practitioner discovers bodily imbalance through tests
such as pulse diagnosis, hara abdominal diagnosis, tsing point diagnosis, iris diagnosis, or
Listening Post analysis.
Symptoms are golden pearis ofinformation that are used to identify the cause of the disease (dis-ease), andthey show us how steps can be taken to treat the patient.
It is my opinion thatmost of our ills are caused by imbalance in our Emotional Bodies, and thesymptoms of disease are merely housed in the Physical Body.
If the chakra points are used, acupuncture affects the subtle bodies, thus treating theetiology of
the condition, making acupuncture an equally viable treatment toother traditional Western
Thereis a profound evolutionary shift that is taking place in the world that can beseen in the
growing recognition of the fundamental role that energy plays inhealing (Benor,
The grandfather of this revolution of energy healing in the West is Dr. Robert Becker.
In the early 1980s, he was one of the first scientists to measure the “current of
injury” associated with healing wounds and bone fractures. In his early research on the
healingand regeneration of salamanders, Becker (1985) showed that the control system
thatstarted, regulated, and stopped healing was electrical.
Becker’swork built upon the work of other scientists, such as Harold Burr, a Yale
Schoolof Medicine neuroanatomist who measured the electrical field around an
unfertilizedsalamander and put forth research that physical illness is preceded by
changesin an organism’s electromagnetic field (Burr & Northrup, 1935). Scientist Owen
Frazee reported in 1909 that passing electrical currents through water containing young
salamanders speeded up the regeneration of amputated limbs (as cited in Becker, 1985, p.
Since that time, there have been numerous well-researched studies showing the
efficacyof various forms of energy in healing.Some have described this paradigm shift
as arevolution, signaling a move from a Newtonian to an Einsteinian medicine model.
FromEinstein’s insights about how energy is a key to opening the mysteries of the
universe,and the physical sciences developing that idea further, we are now on the edge
ofharnessing those mysteries in the arena of medicine and healing. As paraphrased from Gerber.
Newtonian hinkers see the human body as a series of intricate chemical
systems powering a structure of nerve, muscle, flesh, and bones. The
physical body is viewed as a supreme mechanism, intricate physical
clock work down to the very cellular structure. Einsteinian Medicine sees
human beings as networks of complex energy fields that interface with
physical/cellular systems. There is a hierarchy of subtle energetic systems
thatcoordinate electrophysiological, hormonal, and cellular structure of
thephysical body. It is from these subtle levels that health and illness
originate.These unique energy systems are powerfully affected by
emotions,spiritual balance, nutrition, and environment. They influence cellular patterns of growth.
Thisenergy-related revolution is affecting a wide variety of disciplines, including
physics,biology (Pert, 1997; Lipton, 2005), and medicine, and should no longer be
consideredfringe science—it is now thought to be mainstream. Western knowledge of
energyin the human organism has come a long way from believing that nerves are the
onlypart of the body that contain electricity. We now know that the body emits abroad
spectrumof electromagnetic and acoustic radiation that has been measured by magnetic
resonanceimaging (MRI), electroencephalogram (EEG),
electrocardiogram(EKG),electromylogram (EMG), thermography, and ultrasound.
These instrumentsare used to monitor and diagnose diseases.
Behindthe everyday use of instruments to measure energies lies a once-in-an-era
changein the very foundation of science. It was Dr. Lipton (2005), cell biologist and
authorof The Biology of Belief, who wrote that the pyramid of science ischanging. With
thisshift at the bottom of the pyramid showing physics changing from a Newtonian
mechanisticview to one of quantum mechanics, energy and energy fields have come to
theforefront of importance. Lipton says that once the bottom of the pyramid ofscience in
physics shifts, all of the levels—chemistry, biology, andpsychology—need to shift as
AlthoughWestern medicine uses instruments, such as the EEG, to read energy
fields,it has not taken the next step in understanding the role energy plays in otherways,
according to Dr. Lipton. He shows how animals, from single cells tohumans, convert
environmental stimuli into physiological and behavioralresponses. Dr. Lipton says that scientific
research has revealed that “everyfacet of biological regulation is profoundly impacted by the
‘invisible forces’of the electromagnetic spectrum … electromagnetic radiation regulates DNA,
RNAand protein synthesis, alters protein shape and function, and controls generegulation, cell
division, cell differentiation, morphogenesis [the process bywhich cells assemble into organs
and tissues] hormone secretion, nerve growthand function.…” Dr. Lipton laments that “though
these research studies havebeenpublished in some of the most respected mainstream
biomedical journals, their revolutionaryfindings have not been incorporated into our medical
school curriculum” (Lipton2005, as cited by Feinstein & Eden, 2006b). Most important for this
book,Dr. Lipton speaks about the implications of this for the field of psychologyand shows
howthe newly identified cellular mechanisms include master switchesthrough which our
thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs create the conditions of ourbody and of our place in the world.
