Energy Medicine: Harnessing The Universal Life Force

Here at The Sacred Science, the phenomenon of human touch is at the heart of many of the healing traditions we’ve witnessed. Yet we’ve noticed that it’s often taken for granted. Perhaps our innate abilities to heal through touch and influence the movement of energy are skills we’ve collectively forgotten over the generations. We believe it’s time to reclaim these basic human skills. We all have energy coursing through our bodies all the time, and by tuning into the subtleties of this energy, we can harness it to heal.

Energy medicine is based on the premise that everything in the Universe, including thoughts, feelings, and all forms of matter, is comprised of energy. Quantum physics has shown that minuscule packets of energy exist in the space between atoms, sometimes taking shape as energy particles and sometimes as energy waves. This energy field is, in fact, continuous—connecting all forms of matter with no discernable boundaries at the quantum level.

Since we’re made of atoms, we’re essentially made of energy. And since the energy that’s the essence of our essential makeup is the same energy that makes up everyone and everything else in the physical world as we know it, we’re all interconnected. We are, literally, all one.

Those who practice energy medicine tap into this universal energy force to promote health and well-being.

What is energy?

In traditional Chinese medicine, energy is called qi (pronounced chee). This ancient form of medicine, dating back more than 5,000 years, is based on the belief that energy flows through the body in 12 main channels, called meridians. When you’re healthy and balanced, your energy flows smoothly. But when you’re in a state of emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual imbalance, your energy flow is blocked and your health will suffer.

Another well-known concept of energy in the body originates from Hindu metaphysics: the chakras, or energy centers, along the spinal column. It’s believed that blocked energy in the chakras can often lead to illness. Therapies such as Acupuncture, Qi Gong, Reiki, Acupressure, and Shamanic energy medicine aim to restore healthy energy flow when it’s become blocked.

Energy medicine releases blockages, promotes flow.

Practitioners of energy medicine connect to the universal life force—the energy field that connects everything—as well as the energy, or qi, within a patient’s own body. Methods vary, and can be hands-on with such techniques as massage, tapping, or utilizing needles, or completely hands-off. Some practitioners even practice energy medicine remotely, using the power of the mind to shift energy flow.

Energy medicine isn’t associated with any particular belief system, religion, or ideology. However, those who practice it and many who’ve received this form of healing claim it can tap into our deepest essence and spiritual calling. Although it may sound ethereal, most often, energy medicine looks like nothing more than a simple laying of hands. It can be learned and practiced by anyone.
