Spiritual Healing - some research....
Werner Heisenberg is one of the chief architects of quantum theory. His Uncertainty Principle implies that, “no particle ever stays completely at rest but is constantly in motion due to a ground state field of energy constantly interacting with all subatomic matter. It means that the basic structure of the universe is a sea of quantum fields that cannot be eliminated by any known laws of physics. What we believe to be our stable, static universe is, in fact, a seething maelstrom of subatomic particles fleetingly popping in and out of existence.” (taken from The Field by Lynne McTaggart)
What this means is that when scientists came to try to measure these particles they found that we cannot know both the energy and the lifetime of a particle, therefore, subatomic events, at this level, involves an uncertain amount of energy. We have an unmeasurable amount of energy appearing out of. This subatomic activity, when added across the universe, gives rise to an enormous amount of energy – more than is contained in all the matter in the world. Physicists refer to this as the Zero Point Field.
We, therefore, live in a quantum sea of light – this is what mystics and healers have been saying for thousands of years, and scientists, although they knew the above facts, have been discounting them because it is ever present and as close to zero as they could get in their calculations. They theorised that because “it didn’t change anything” it didn’t count, however, this shows therapists working with vibrational medicine know that it does count.
In the early 1990’s an orthodox psychiatrist, Elisabeth Targ, and Fred Sicher, a psychologist and researcher, conducted some research into remote healing. The patient group were Elisabeth’s patients with advanced AIDS.
They constructed a rigorously checked, double blind experiment (neither patient nor doctor knew healing was happening). The patient population had the same degree of illness, the same T-cell counts and the same number of AIDS defining illnesses. All healing was done remotely so as not to confuse results by meeting the healer or being touched.
Each patient was to be treated by at least 10 healers. All the healers were given to work on was a photograph of the patient, a name and a t-cell count and they were asked to hold an intention of health and well-being for the patient for an hour a day, six days a week, for ten weeks. During the six month trial 40% of the control population died. But all ten of the patients in the healing group were not only still alive, but had become healthier, on the basis of their own reports and medical evaluations.
Healers develop an ability to tap into the quantum sea of light – the Zero Point Field – and it appears they can use this to create greater “order” in another person, allowing “the Field” to realign another person’s structure. Vibrational medicine includes all the healing modalities that manipulate this field eg healing, Reiki, flower remedies, homeopathy, kinesiology, acupuncture and others.
