As a holistic health practitioner, being introduced (although it was more precisely a timely remembrance) 20 years ago to the fact that all matter, including we human beings, is made of energy, profoundly affected my view of healing and life in general. It was one of those moments that brought forth those sudden, torrential and hard to explain tears that contain both joy and sadness. The joy came from uncovering a knowledge that instantly helped me to make sense of so many of life’s mysteries and that on some level I sensed would profoundly shift the direction of my life. Like a reunion with a long lost loved one, as the joy burst forward it carried with it the deep sadness at having been separated from this felt recognition of my spiritual nature and interconnectedness of all things.
Principles of energy
Any quantum physicist will attest to the fact that there is nothing solid about us at all. When we go into matter deeply enough we begin to see that amidst the components of atoms are yawning chasms of ‘empty’ space. The electrons, protons and neutrons themselves seem to flash in and out of existence. As we explore deep healing and its basis in energy let’s start by reviewing some of the principles of energy.
Everything is made of energy
All matter, inanimate as well as animate, is made of energy. A dog, a stone, a pen, a plastic container, an apple, are all fundamentally energy, and each one holds a unique energy pattern and frequency.
Energy permeates all space
Even the space between objects is filled with energy that can’t be detected by the five primary senses. However, many of us are sensitive enough to pick up unseen ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ energies in the spaces that we visit. The universe is a vast energy soup, and the objects that float around in it are like ‘carrots and peas’. We can take the metaphor further and know that not only are the vegetables contained within the soup, they flavor the broth, or space around them.
Thoughts and emotions are also energy
The experience of thinking about someone that we haven’t spoken to in a while and having them call or e-mail us shortly after is universal. Thoughts, being energy, can travel through space and be detected by the object of our thoughts. Many of us are also aware that we can detect emotional energy. For example, a person might be smiling as they talk to you but your body is picking up an entirely different story. Each human emotion carries a distinct energetic signature that is felt in various places in the body. Sadness is felt as a heavy energy in the chest, while anger is often felt as tightness just below the rib cage, for example.
Harmonic inductance is happening all around us
We are all picking up energies on an ongoing basis. The vibration of one object affects another. This is called harmonic inductance, or entrainment. When we spend time in nature for a few days we begin to resonate with the energy of nature, and we feel more peaceful. When we spend time around people with a negative outlook we feel heavy and sluggish.
Food is energy too
As a nutritionist I love to underscore the fact that food is energy too. Every whole food contains an energy signature that is unique to that food, like a personality. The food, being energy, is also affected by all the energies that it was exposed to during its growth and processing, because of harmonic inductance. Animals that have suffered and been sad during their lives bring those same energies to us when we eat them. Is it any wonder that anti-depressants are so commonly prescribed in these days of compassion-less mass production of animal products? Farmers who love the earth and love you enough to grow food that is nourishing and clean, even though it means more work and less money for them, infuse the food that they grow with love and health. The parent who prepares food with sincere blessings of wholeness and peace for their child, infuse their creations with that energy. We begin to understand that food is so much more than mere calories, vitamins and proteins. The intentions, values and emotions that we bring to the cultivation and preparation of our food affect us immensely in unseen but very real ways.
The frequency of health and disease
Many researchers have discovered ways to measure the frequency of the human body. Although every cell, tissue and organ has its own resonanace, on average our bodies vibrate from 62 to 68 MHz. Dr. Royal Rife developed a machine that measured frequencies and concluded that every disease has a specific frequency. The research of Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technologies determined that:
- Human cells can start to change (mutate) when their frequency drops below 62MHz.
- 58 MHz is the frequency of your body when you have a cold or the flu.
- When candida is present within your body, you vibrate at a frequency of 55MHz.
- 52 MHz is the frequency of a body with Epstein-Barr virus present.
- 42 MHz is the frequency of a body wherein cancer can appear.
- When the death process begins – the frequency has been measured at 20 MHz.
It’s clear that pathogens and diseased cells thrive at specific sub-optimal frequencies and good vibrations are crucial to staying healthy.
Our mental and emotional states as well as our spiritual connection arguably have the biggest impact on frequency levels. A negative mental and emotional state can lower a person’s frequency by at least 10 to 12 MHz. Conversely, meditation, prayer and positive states can raise it by at least 10 to 15 MHz.
As mentionned above, the food we put in our bodies has a tremendous impact on our vibrational frequencies. Poor quality, processed canned, genetically modified, chemically sprayed foods, as well as foods produced with an element of human, animal or planetary suffering all lower our frequency level when ingested, and of course create environments where disease sets in.
Interestingly, but not surprisingly, people tend to choose foods that will keep them at the vibrational level that they’re used to. In order to keep emotions suppressed we subconsciously choose low vibration foods. As soon as we begin to eat a higher vibration diet composed of whole, plant-based, living foods, lower vibration energy pockets that contain suppressed emotions will start to dissolve … this is of course positive in the long-term, but in the short term it can create some uncomfortable ’emotional detoxification’ as they dance their way out of our systems. High vibration practices, like spending time in nature, meditation, prayer, and any other activity that speaks to the soul are the key to moving through these transitional times with greater ease.
The key shift I believe is to stop thinking of uncomfortable emotions as ‘bad’ and pleasant emotions as ‘good’. All emotions are valuable messengers of self-knowledge. Grasping at so called pleasant emotions to avoid challenging ones is the root of all addictions, and is a profoundly soul-numbing way of relating to life. Creating a friendly awareness of all emotions frees up tremendous amounts of energy used to suppress them, and allows for a deeper connection to our true nature, in a vibrantly healthy body.
