I recently found two drawings of the human body that truly saw different stories. One from Japan circa 1341 that was all acupuncture meridians and one from France around 1543 that was all muscles. Western medicine’s view of anatomy did not perceive the tracts and points of Chinese medical teachings. Chinese medicine could not comprehend Western preoccupation with ligaments and muscles for which they didn’t even treat. Now, this is not the only viewpoint of these two systems of healing. They do illustrate how, over the course of time, perceptions can evolve and that there is an extraordinary influence of one viewpoint over another at any point of time. It turns out that this particular divergence didn’t always exist and only emerged at the turn of the first and second centuries. Prior to that, it was use of the senses of touch and sight that guided the healer. Perhaps you guessed that the touch evolved into muscle awareness (via dissection) and the sight into the pulses and meridians – the “inscrutable gaze of the Chinese doctor.”
The story of healing is expanding again. It incorporates the ancient and adds (Quantum) Physics including light (lasers), electromagnetics (xray) and magnetoelectric (MRI) that the ancients had not accessed. In its first generation, energy is accessed and projected with the healer acting as conduit. In the newest emerging iteration, we sense energy and receive information (muscle testing, structured intuition). Rather than becoming a conduit, the healer becomes a catalyst that allows the other person to directly connect themselves to the Energy Field/Innate Wisdom/Frequency from which the healing takes place. Healing now becomes personalized and extensive instead of relying on a current and changing point of view.
Happy New Year. I sincerely look forward to engaging with each of you this year. Whether you are starting out with Energy Therapy and simply use my website to learn the Cortices Technique or book a 1:1 appointment to jumpstart your healing process, I welcome the opportunity to work together. Let me know how I can help.
