World view, inspiration, self-help
For thousands of years, investigators have faced the big questions: What is it that, ‘acting from within,’ enables life and movement? Today, the concept of ‘energy’ (from ancient Greek ‘en’ = inside, ‘ergon’= working) takes on an everyday use beyond science, for example in describing personal moods. Thus can someone be said to be ‘bursting with energy,’ to suffer from ‘lack of energy’ or to be agitated by ‘energy blockages,’ something we also say when we conduct BioMagnetic Healing with Hands? We will now explore that concept of energy a bit more from many different directions. We will not be able to cover all that should be mentioned here, but everyone who would like to delve into energy healing and Healing Magnetism in depth, we recommend the accredited Practitioner training offered at. www.healing-magnetism.com nevertheless the following gives us some hints and insights that we will be able to use. Let’s see what we discover.
As far back, the ancient Greek delved into the phenomenon that we are surrounded and permeated by energy, and searched for laws governing the ‘movements of life.’ They discovered that there are different forms of energy and that no changes or developments would be possible without energy.
Then from the 19th century, essential principles were formulated that are still recognized as the basis of science:
Numerous experiments have led to these findings and are confirmed by simple everyday observations. The heat from a heater or radiator, for example, can only radiate to the cold surroundings, but the heater itself cannot be made warmer by draining thermal energy from the cooler surroundings.
Looking at the big world events against the backdrop of these principles means there would be life and movement in the universe only as long as different energy levels exist. Once the cosmic bodies have ‘burned out’ and everything only has a uniform temperature that would be the end – for us, for all creatures, and for planets, suns, galaxies: the universe would die the so-called heat death.
Today’s scientific worldview is based on the same scenario. However, it should be noted in the first place that the principles described are based only on experiences, they are not irrefutably proved. Secondly, in particular, it remains unclear whether the universe can be regarded as a closed system.
Opinions differ on this key question.
Materialism with ‘feet of clay.’
The prevailing materialistic view of life assumes that the energy system that is the universe cannot be subject to any influence from outside. Although it remains unclear how and why the most comprehensive ‘outside influence’ by far, the Big Bang, came about. That said, the view was formed that the total energy established at the beginning of the universe would only temporarily – as long as there are differences in level – enable the phenomena of life. There is, therefore, no higher reality with which our life and fate can interact. All subjective experiences with unmeasurable energies – whether it concerns Far-eastern life energy concept ‘Chi,’ the phenomena of aura or astral body, Healing Magnetism, the flow of energy through body meridians, chakras or whatever finer-material phenomena are called – would thus be mere imagination. ‘Straight-laced’ scientists consider it calculating or simply naïve if esoteric or spiritually minded people ‘misapply’ the concept of ‘energy’ to the non-measurable scheme of things. In their opinion, the semblance of scientific approach and objective reality is then merely evoked, while in reality utter ignorance, vague conjectures or simple errors lurk behind.
But perhaps misuse of the concept of ‘energy’ – which describes that which ‘works from within’ – lies less in the description of subjective experiences, but, quite the reverse, in the one-sided scientific definitions, since some naturalists and philosophers are convinced, in the meantime, that a purely materialistic view of the world stands on feet of clay.
This is especially indicated with experiments and observations in the microcosm. It is clear, for example, that matter is not really in the form of a union of very small particles, as envisaged. ‘Basically, there is no matter. At least not in the usual sense. There is only a web of relationships, constant change, liveliness’, the physicist Hans Peter Duerr described in a magazine interview the nature of all the material things. “We find it difficult to imagine this. Primarily, there exists only connection, without the connective material foundation. We could also call it spirit — something that we can only experience spontaneously and do not interfere with. Matter and energy occur secondarily in appearance – as a sort of congealed, solidified spirit. According to Albert Einstein, the matter is only a diluted form of energy. But its background is not even refined energy but something completely different, vibrancy.”
Duerr thinks that it would be better to apply verbs to the subatomic world because it does not embrace objects, nouns or things that we can touch and grasp. There are only movements, processes, connections, and information, thus giving us a glimpse of the primordial ground of liveliness.
As soon as one wants to observe its smallest components and define things in a traditional manner, matter dissolves into ‘nothingness.’ Even more spectacular is the view that the whole of reality, as we human beings experience it, manifests only through the interaction with our consciousness. The so-called quantum theory throws up by phenomena in the microcosms a completely new worldview that is in stark contrast to materialism. Some key points of consideration:
The energy of consciousness
The approach of attributing a decisive role to consciousness in the making of the world may well seem to most people today as too far-fetched. Our worldview and thus the logic of our thinking, our language, in short, the whole range of our assumptions or hopes, is based on everyday experiences which influential scientists such as Newton, Descartes or Darwin have condensed by experiments to theories. However, consciousness has up to now remained ignored in all formulations and descriptions. Therefore, the so-called inner world of a person- our experiences, perceptions, expectations, and motivations and so on – is considered unpredictable and also an insignificant side issue for world events. Only (supposedly) objective material reality is deemed critical: consciousness, in contrast, is seen simply as a side effect of biological development, specifically of the brain.
It is our spiritual attitude that is at least to 50 percent responsible for how healthy we are and in reality not only 50 percent, but it does affect every part of us.
Therefore the materialistic worldview does not offer any explanations for some phenomena of daily life. Why is there precognition, telepathy between people or between humans and animals? Why are healing energies or the so-called placebo effect helpful? Why does motivation as well as good thoughts have an invigorating effect? There are undoubted scientific studies for all these effects – but no logical explanation by a material worldview, because we have not yet even begun to understand what consciousness is. The assumption that it arises from brain activity is supported merely by the observation that processes of consciousness have something to do with brain waves. But it can just as well be inferred from such observations that the brain functions do mediate consciousness and thus are a tool to receive and transmit impulses of consciousness. Always, only effects of consciously experienced processes or events can be described.
If quantum philosophy now makes consciousness central to world events, then it leads to the remarkable end that consciousness has not just arisen from the brain, but rather the brain is a result of consciousness. For every material, development is, therefore, a result of spiritual causes.
While the majority of scientists today still assume that every event follows a ‘rising causality’, thus that future effects entails causes lying in the past, the ‘falling causality principle’ dominates in the new quantum philosophical view of the world: An already spiritually molded goal acts from the future into the present and provides the framework for all processes of formation and development.
What has always existed as well as what originates anew is thus the result of a process of consciousness. The really important factor is not then the ‘visible effect’, with which all science deals, but the non-measurable impulse which proceeds the effect; not the ‘dance of atoms, which the observer beholds, but the ‘music’ that gives way to this dance of life – in a wide variety of individual choreographies.
This view of things also opens up a broader understanding of the concept of ‘energy.’ For if consciousness essentially acts 'from within’ and gives impulses to all happenings, then the question whether ‘system’ within the material reality is open or is closed is no longer particularly relevant. And all ‘energies’ that affect our lives can – whether they are measurable or not – have meaning and be effective.
Interestingly, from such ‘theory of consciousness’ bridges can also very well be built to many religions and wisdom teachings, all of which comment on higher realms – on a ‘fine-material or ethereal world’ for example, on the ‘kingdom of God’ or on ‘paradise’ – and regard the will of the human being, thus the activities and engagements of his consciousness as key to his future fate and wellbeing. ‘Whatever a man sows that shall he also reap,’ the Bible teaches.
Abd-ru-shin, the author of the work, In the Light of Truth, (www.grailmessage.com) made clear in the framework of a question and answered the essence of energy: ‘Energy is spirit!’ The nature of the spiritual which moves the material world, therefore, goes back to higher, non-material ‘radiations.’ How this relates to Healing Magnetism is of great interest by the way, and we cover this in great detail in the internationally accredited Practitioner course, whereas here we will stay more with the basics that will be enough for you to start to treat yourself and your family.
Maybe religion and science again will find a common basis of approach. The physicist and Nobel laureate Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), for example, saw a scientific path to knowledge in optimistic religious terms: ‘The first gulp from the cup of natural science will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom, God is waiting.’
Whoever ventures today onto terrain not (yet) secured by science and wants to fathom the so-called finer-material energies faces different expressions and traditional terms that are difficult to reconcile. Nevertheless, there is broad agreement on some basics.
Rupert Sheldrake and the morphic field
Among those investigating the fine-material fields today are established scientists, including the British biologist Rupert Sheldrake, who has published more than 80 major works and belongs to several scientific societies (such as the ‘Cambridge Philosophical Society’ or the ‘Society for Experimental Biology.’ For example, he explored the navigation ability of homing pigeons. How do these animals succeed in finding their way home over hundreds of kilometers? Even a ‘magnetic sense’ could not explain this ability. Someone may hold a compass in his hands and indeed know where the north is – but that does not mean he can come home.
Sheldrake also looked into the question of how forms take shape in nature or how learning processes work. Animal studies confirmed, for example, that what animals of a previous generation had learned can be learned more easily and quickly by the next generation.
Sheldrake concluded that there must be a universal ‘field’ which governs or ‘codes’ all the processes of development, thus the development of form as well as the process of learning. Using a ‘morphic field’- Sheldrake coined this term in 1973, later he also spoke of the ‘memory of nature’- a form that already exists in one plane can easily arise in another place. This field, for example, also controls the exact appearance of a life form and ensures coordination between organisms of a species. Phenomena such as the formation of bird flight, construction of anthills or long-distance transference of impulses of consciousness (telepathy) can relatively easily be explained by this theory.
Sheldrake’s ‘fields’ essentially point to fine-material backgrounds. He has long been convinced that materialism, together with the restriction of all scientific considerations to coarse material processes, is obsolete. He calls this attitude ‘science delusion’ (the title of one of his recent books) and notes that non-material realities must henceforth be incorporated in our worldview. Only then will science succeed in approaching those central phenomena of life and consciousness that remain ignored because scientists give these a wide berth…..at least officially.
Fritz-Albert Popp and the light in cells
The German physicist Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp investigates so-called biophotons, light emission by living cells. In his view, the cells of an organism control their metabolic events and communicate with each other by biophotons. Biophotons transport information and create a coherent field in which each cell is connected to every other cell and knows what to do. 90 percent of the biophotons is thus emitted by DNA in the cell nucleus. Biophotons coordinate all the biochemical events in the human body. Their radiation can be measured with highly sensitive devices.
Research suggests ‘that cells absorb not only light energy (=photons) from sunlight but also save the information and the order it contains and that these are made available for the metabolic processes taking place in the cells. The coherence, the order of light, appears to be directly related to the order in biological cells.
Thus biophotons provide information about the energetic state of cells. Weak or diseased cells emit little and above all, chaotic light; in contrast, healthy cells show a strong and structured light emission. Disease and aging in cells go hand in hand with a drop in biophoton concentration. In Popp’s view (also), every illness can be contributed to a light deficit in the cell. Biophotons are from this perspective a measure for ‘life energy.’
The human body can, therefore, be regarded as a ‘light mammal,’ whose main ‘food source’ is sunlight. ‘Without the light of the sun there would be no biophotons, then no cell communication and thus no ‘life,’ says Popp. ‘We virtually live on light.’
In a series of daily experiments, the physician measured the photon emissions from the hand of a healthy test person. Analysis of the data showed that the light emission followed certain patterns- biological rhythms at 7, 14, 32, 80 and 270 days when the emissions were identical.
Popp also investigated some cancer patients. They all lacked these periodic rhythms as well as the coherence of the light. An indication, perhaps, that these patients had lost their ‘connection with the world’?
In contrast, patients with multiple sclerosis showed a too high degree of coherence. Excessive ‘cooperative harmony’ apparently prevents flexibility – as if too many soldiers marching in step across a bridge thereby cause it to collapse. Coherence could, therefore, be regarded as an ‘optimum state between chaos and order.’
In any case, light in cells appears to be a key to well-being and health- and thus to what is experienced subjectively as ‘life energy.’ Dr. Popp also explains the effect of homeopathy by the absorption of biophotons. He is of the opinion that electromagnetic signals could explain the effect of acupuncture. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body has deep in the tissues and invisible meridian system through which flows invisible energy which the Chinese call ‘Chi’ or ‘life force.’ This Chi presumably enters through the acupuncture points and flows to deeper situated organ structures (which do not correspond with those of western biology) in order and provide them with energy. The disease occurs when this energy is blocked along with their channels. In Popp’s view, the meridian system could represent a kind of ‘waveguide’ and direct the body’s energies to certain zones. On the same level also the transition of Healing Energies in Healing Magnetism works.
Dr. Popp is also a researcher for whom science is not exhausted in materialism and wants above all to include the phenomena of consciousness. Popp states ‘…it seems only logical to assume that life in its urge to express itself must follow a plan, a basic structure, which it can resort to in its manifestation and reactions all the way to the cell nucleus. Call the intelligence behind it whatever you want – but there must be an order-creating force for the development and emergence and the interaction of participants in this universe…..and every ‘template’ also bears the signature of the conscious force. In my opinion, everything is rooted in the light.’
Ulrich Warnke and quantum philosophy
The studies and theories of scientists like Rupert Sheldrake or Fritz-Albert Popp exemplify how the world of science is drawing near ancient teachings of wisdom or spiritual traditions and thus also allowing for the reality of finer-material events.
The German biologist Ulrich Warnke goes one step further with an integrated worldview which has consciousness at the center – as ‘an entity beyond our body (…..) energy that can change matter.’
The idea that the ‘life energy’ of our spiritual consciousness acts in a forming and shaping manner in the world is not anew. As humans, we assume simply that we can deliberately shape our lives and for this, we have personal responsibility. This presupposes that our conscious will, in the end, has a decisive influence on all developments. However, it is unusual that this reality is substantiated scientifically since human will, intentions, thoughts, and perceptions are not regarded in the materialistic view of the world as relevant factors for the course of events. In contrast, one can also find conclusions formulated by the biologist Warnke readily in some fine spiritual teachings. He writes: ‘The first step to changing our tangible reality starts out (…) from our will and our strong emotional desire. The subsequent chain reaction is mapped out without our being able to stop it. Once initiated, the creative process continues automatically like a domino effect and becomes our fate. The point is that we can influence our fate in this way in this long-term only by our strongly perceived thoughts and desires. (…..) It lies in all our hands to change the world for the better or worse. (….) We benefit from immeasurably great energy equally flowing through everything. From the smallest atom to the boundless cosmos this energy flows through everything that exists. We find it in every stone, every plant, every animal, every human being. Unlike the stone or plant, the human being can focus and thereby reinforce the cosmic energy – just like a magnifying glass can intensely focus the sun’s rays. Lively perception in a human takes over the function of a focus lens. Thoughts then turn into bearers of the focused energy, the will or volition determines the goal, and the wish or desire activates the process of realization. Provided this chain of events runs unhindered, an energy field is channeled, which leaves visible traces as far as the quantum domain of the atoms. (…)
Therefore, a person bears responsibility for his actions already at the stage when he or she decides on a wish, a plan or action. In the interworld, there is no difference between thought and deed. Good or bad intentions already create reality. If all human beings realized this, they would essentially be more careful.’
But when we realize such abilities of a human being, we also can understand why Healing Magnetism works. Human beings can open up to the life energy and absorb it into their hands and guide it on to the other person, or also to themselves for healing purposes. Important is our connection seeking with the power and our focus and intention too, as intention guides energy. In every country in the world, we find people who all of a sudden discover their healing abilities. Some of them feel an energy field between their hands which they then start to use to affect another person’s body and bring healing. People learn to use the spiritual power they can absorb to do good.
The concept of ‘interworld’ in the sense of Warnke describes a ‘field’ beyond material reality. Like Rupert Sheldrake, Warnke believes that our conscious (and also unconscious) inner world connects with this field – for example, in remembering something: “Because our experiences are stored away in the interworld, we transcend the concrete sensory experience in the act of remembering – for memory occurs beyond time and space. It is purely virtual. (…) As soon as we recall former experiences, we resonate with the interworld where these results are accessible as information complexes.’
‘Interworld’ is a makeshift term to describe energies, potentials or realities beyond the space-time dimension perceptible by the senses. Whether it gains acceptance remains to be seen.
The same applies to the popular concept of ‘zero point field,’ which is sometimes used to describe the basis for interactions between mind and matter. Some quantum physicists assume that consciousness has its origin in a comprehensive field which pervades the whole of Creation. The term ‘zero point field’ describes ‘immense field forces of the subatomic level’ (Warnke). Traditional names for ‘life energy,’ such as Chi, Od, Orgon or ether, are linked accordingly with ‘zero-point energy.’ All the known forms of energy would, therefore, originate in zero point energy. This universal energy would also be used with every spiritual intention, and also we use it to conduct BioMagnetic Healing sessions.
Antennas to the ‘universal matrix.’
In current theories, this energy field is envisaged as a ‘matrix,’ from which all matter arises in a condensed form, as every matter is predominantly – almost 100 percent – space devoid of mass. Warnke: “What we perceive as material worlds are only condensations within a field. (….) The matter of the universe is made up of only three components: proton, neuron, and electron. Depending on how they are combined, elements with very diverse properties such as the specific atomic weight arise. However, quantum physics proves that matter, as solid and unchanging as it may seem to us, is, in the end, an energy vortex with characteristic condensations.
‘Our body is also made up of such energy vortices in the flow of universal energy. They condense in the micro and macro range to a constant form, to structure and shape to be able to work in earthly conditions. This energetic constitution of the body makes us energy and information channels, able to transmit and receive energy and information.’
In Healing Magnetism we learn how to affect the energy field, how to open to healing energy and use it for the benefit of healing. Here we open up in prayer first, and we use our hands to guide the energy to where it is needed.
Some researchers believe that vortex-like spirals, as occur everywhere in nature, are the key to the immeasurable reservoir of life energy. Therefore, the geometric spiral shape would be the ideal antenna to concentrate and store energy. This would underpin the special significance of the 100 billion ‘life energy antennas’ in the human body – the DNA spirals in the cells. They are in resonance with the ‘interworld’ or the ‘zero point field’ and draw all life impulses from there.
The ordinary day consciousness linked with the physical brain can be described as a resonance phenomenon by this approach. Insights, knowledge, ideas would then not arise in the head but are so do speak ‘downloaded’ from the field by the brain, which acts as an ‘information antenna.’
What remains, are personal consequences
The different concepts, images, and theories about ‘life energy’ under discussion, and contradictory ideas of what holds the world together at the core make it nowadays practically impossible to formulate well-founded statements which universally describe the central phenomena of life. But the personal ‘energy management’ remains an important foundation for the health and well-being of each person.
According to traditional ideas we have a part of our life energy provided from birth, another part we need to acquire in the course of life from surroundings – from food and respiration. The acquired energy is functional; it is subject to a cycle of consumption and renewal. We must, similar to a battery, again and again, recharge with energy. We can obtain a certain measure of energy through the right choice and composition of our food, through correct breathing and also the balance of our emotions.
Yes, it is not just the measure of energy that determines our physical and emotional health, but also its harmonious flow through the body.
Due to the modern lifestyle, the advancing environmental degradation, the denatured food, and stress, less life energy are available to the individual today. Added are personal factors such as psychic and physical burdens. If the body has too little energy, regeneration is also delayed. All adverse life circumstances generate inhibitory emotions and cost energy. Such blockages in energy flow can be removed and balanced via Healing Magnetism.
It is more important than ever to recharge the ‘batteries’ through as good a conscious lifestyle as possible because every increase in life energy promotes physical fitness and spiritual growth. Breathing or physical exercises (outdoors) can also help to bring this about as can regular self-treatments with Healing Magnetism (or receiving treatment). In Healing Magnetism we also find a solution to emotional conflicts – via opening to helpful luminous energies in prayer.
In any case, it is about new consciousness impulses, because
The real quintessence of healing is in becoming aware!
