This month’s edition is on Energy Medicine. Energy permeates our life in every aspect. In fact, looked in totality, we are energy beings. We are waves of energy so close together that we become visible. Hence its natural that we react and respond to the energy changes all around us. Every act of ours also creates some ripples in this field of energy that we are and that pervades the existence. Positive thoughts and acts create positive vibrations and vice versa.
Positive acts or thoughts are those that come from love, unconditional love. Any act or thought that does not come from unconditional love creates a heavy vibration which we commonly refer to as a negative vibe. The positive energy or the unconditional love has very high vibration. When there is lack of love because of ego or fear, it creates a negative vibe because fear has very low vibration and hence is a dense energy. Dense energy tends to move very slowly, easily stagnates or gets stuck in the energy meridians of the body. This stuck energy in the body or the energy field creates more blockages. You can picture this as a broken down car on the road which, if not removed on time, can create a traffic jam and lead to stuck traffic on the road. The organs or areas of a human body, which do not receive sufficient energy because of such energy blockages, tend to have reduced efficiency and functioning. Over time, this gives rise to dis-ease.
Energy medicine is a form of healing which works on harmonizing the flow of energy in the body by removing the energy blocks, increasing the vibrations by channeling more prana or life force energy into the body and the energy field and thus create a state of balance or health.
Energy medicine can take various forms. It can be working with energy therapeutically as in Reiki, Pranic Healing, Touch therapy etc. It can also work in the form of healing essences such as flower essences, Bach Flower Remedies, Homeopathic medicines etc. A very important part of energy medicine is the diet.
When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need. ~Ayurvedic Proverb
Food is the one of the biggest sources of prana in our body. Have food that is rich in prana or the life force energy. Processed foods, foods that are microwaved, non-vegetarian diet have negative prana. It decreased the overall energy of the body. Raw fruits and vegetables are high in prana.
Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food. ~Hippocrates
Spices that Indians use in their everyday diet and as recommended in the Ayurveda sutras are extremely beneficial for the energy beings that we are. They are not only used to add taste but also are rejuvenating, preventive and curative in nature. Used in moderate quantities, they are life affirming and improve the overall quality of the body which helps the body in taking in and assimilating the prana from the food.
Bless your food and water before consuming. Thoughts and words are also energy. Food cooked or eaten in anger is equivalent to poison for the body. Food cooked or eaten in sadness become dense in energy and creates energy blocks in the body.
Energy medicine is not only about energy healing techniques, it is about living a lifestyle that is life affirming, that creates more time and space for connecting with nature, connecting with other beings with love, experiencing love, sharing and caring. We are not human beings waiting to have a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings here for a human experience. Enjoy and cherish the human experience of emotions, love, joy, sadness and allow space for life to flourish. Live in harmony, listen to your body and enjoy some time in nature – it is the best gift you can give your body and to your being.
