The newly emerging model of human functioning has evolved from including body, then mind and emotions to including consciousness. Not limited to the brain and central nervous system, consciousness is seen as an intrinsic aspect of the entire being and present throughout the body. Collectively, these aspects of our experience are expressed as an energy field that has been called bioenergy or the newly coined biofield by the National Institute of Health (NIH). The energy field, also known as the aura, can be measured and has electrostatic, magnetic, electromagnetic, sonic, thermal and visual components (just to name a few). These measurements show that the aura has a fluid motion like that of air and water and is composed of charged particles which move together following certain physical laws that suggest a state between energy and matter.
Matter and energy, according to quantum physics, are two forms of the same thing. Our energy field acts as a template for the different aspects of our experience. Denser energy relates to the physical body, slightly finer resonant energy to emotions, finer still to thoughts, and very subtle energy to the spiritual aspects of our being. If there are imbalances, blocks or gaps in the bioenergy, there will be imbalances, disruptions and disease in our physical and conscious experience. All health problems are the result of imbalance in the human energy field. Chronic health issues are associated with long term energy imbalances.
“An elementary particle
is not an independently existing, unanalyzable entity.
It is, in essence, a set of relationships that reach outward to other things.”
“The more you know
the less you understand.”
Tao Te Ching
