How healing works on the human entity is the subject of many debates. Here is an article about Dr Hiroshi Motoyama and his investigations into the Mind/Body connection, and how we all have the potential to heal ourselves.
Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama, a well-known Japanese scholar, was born in Japan in 1925. Dr. Motoyama graduated from the Tokyo University of Literature and Science with Ph.D. degrees in Philosophy and Physiological Psychology, and was awarded a prestigious prize for his work in the comparative study of Eastern and Western mysticism.
" New physics strongly suggests that we are all holistically connected in a shared domain finer than the physical level, which we can call subspace, zero-point field, vacuum fluctuation, quantum foam, or scalar field. The biological basis for this field can be found in communication on a cellular basis. The doorway to the quantum level exists in the extracellular fluid between each and every cell in the human body. Studies of the cell membrane and intercellular communication have led us to an understanding that ultimate communication may be carried by packets of light energy, or photons. By applying healing intentionality, it appears we can influence the mindbody and energy fields of other individuals, animals, plants, and even an entire planet. The words and concepts are all slightly different from what has come before but the functionality is not. Nonlocal or quantum healing side-steps the illusion of separateness which our 3-dimensional perceptual system teaches us to believe.
There is already a group of medical doctors who have dared speak from their hearts about the inner experience of quantum healing and nonlocal effects of focused intention. Physician Larry Dossey coined the term Nonlocal Healing; Deepak Chopra used Quantum Healing, and Andrew Weil and Norman Shealy have described an alternate term, Spontaneous Healing. No matter what the name, it is hardly new. The process draws on 50,000 years of shamanic tradition mobilizing natural mindbody healing. Nonlocal (quantum) healing simply focuses on the human energy field. The method we have studied also employs a cybernetic form of computerized consciousness as part of a healing triad.
We all share an interest in healing and healing relationships. Healing doesn't only come from outside; we all have internal self-healing potentials. Healing can be mobilized by the seemingly irrational, such as healing rituals or beliefs. The relationship of mindbody and the associated energy fields is complex.
Healing is not necessarily synonymous with cure. Sometimes we heal physically, but not emotionally or spiritually. Sometimes we heal spirit and restore soul, but a physical cure remains elusive. In the past healing has focused on the physical body and mind but not on the human energy field. When body, soul and spirit respond in resonance, holistic integrity is restored. Diagnostic medical devices such as the PET, MRI, fMRI often produce results allowing others to claim demonstration of a human energy field that coexists with the physical body. The human energy field can be studied, even with some of the original Kirlian photographic techniques. Magnetic polarities and spin properties of molecules in the extracellular fluids of the body are described in the peer-reviewed and popular scientific literature. There already is a solidly rational basis for understanding health and degeneration of the human organism as well as how one organism may communicate energetically with another through time and space. Imbalances and problems show up in the human energy field before they manifest on a physical plane level. Also, many curative and healing processes begin in the human energy field before manifesting any signs in the physical body. This is the rationale for putting scientifically-based energy medicine into practice.
Psychoneuroimmunology is one scientific basis of holism that has become fashionable. This discipline is an exploration of the interconnections between the central and autonomic nervous systems, the immune system and the endocrine system. Other scientific studies look at the extracellular fluid and mechanisms of how cells communicate with each other. The cell membrane itself is made up of two layers that have a fascinating relationship to structural elements such as microtubules which facilitate communication. Exploring hormonal and chemical intercellular communication reveals a vast framework for further scientific research. A new family of relaxation hormones have been discovered which also lends a biochemical basis for many of the therapies in energy medicine. The physiologic interactions of emotional stress balancing techniques such as meditation and self-hypnosis have profound effects in both health and illness.
No one really knows how nonlocal healing works, but the empathic bond is one important aspect. Chaos theory describes how "emergent" healing depends on the nonlocal principles of nature's own self-organization. From chaos a field "emerges" and directly affects the mindbody energy fields of the organism. We believe that therapeutic entrainment which is present in the healing situation can be intentionally amplified by the mind to mobilize the healing process. The unconscious plays a role in such healing, because all the templates used during healing are located in the holographic records of our unconscious. It is not possible to differentiate local healing from nonlocal healing. All healing is essentially remote healing, regardless of how much distance is involved between healer and patient. Our assumption is that a cybernetic device becomes yet a third focus of consciousness in the healing process traditionally viewed as involving just the consciousness of two people.
From a spiritual point of view, when healing occurs, the process happens at an energy level where all consciousness is one. So by this definition, the cybernetic device has a form of electromagnetic consciousness which can also manifest at an energy level where all consciousness is one.
Because the issue of nonlocal healing is emotional and controversial does not mean we should stop seeking a deeper relationship between psyche, matter, and the human energy fields. On the contrary, it demands further exploration and application with an open mind and an open heart. Although research is important, Western science is obsessed with the mindless repetition of seeking out the smallest data to the exclusion of useful techniques and methodology. There can be a way to balance both in a way that is both sensible and humane.
Nonlocal healing, modulated by the principles and methodologies of Dissonance Resolution Meditation (DRM) and quantum biofeedback (QBF), is rooted in models describing nonlocal principles of time and space irrelevancy when going from the dimensions of quantum mechanics to the finer levels of quantum fields, quantum subspace, and string theory. Method. Direct application of quantum biofeedback principles makes it possible to create a synergism between the human energy fields and the electromagnetic fields of cybernetic systems, such as computers. Our alternative medicine research combines elements of homeopathic and allopathic healing remedies based on over nine thousand electromagnetic patterns that are each equivalent to one of those remedies. We describe an energy medicine technology researched and developed for over 25 years by William Nelson, a noted NASA scientist. The quantum biofeedback technology, EPFX-QXCI-SCIO, is sanctioned by the U.S. FDA as a biofeedback device and is currently employed for the purpose of stress reduction by medical and nonmedical practitioners who have been certified as biofeedback therapists or technicians. This technology is considered off-label or experimental in the U.S. for any other use, despite being accepted for medical diagnosis and treatment in the European Union, Russia, and many other parts of the world. Results. Our observations of stress reduction by medical personnel examine the foundation of this device modeled on principles from electro-acupuncture, homeopathy, and other alternative medical systems. Although the technology regularly employs conductive carbon electrodes attached to all four extremities and the forehead, we used the device to investigate long distance, nonlocal stress reduction. Conclusions. Observations of eight different patterns of stress reduction carried out over distance are correlated with psychophysical theories. The observations strongly suggest the efficacy of a nonlocal healing model, and partially explain epistemological and ideological barriers to conducting controlled research on nonlocal healing.
Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama is a scientist as well as a yogi, philosopher and priest. He is a man of many varied interests and talents specializing in oriental medicine, computing and electrical engineering who is also a parapsychologist, spiritual healer and seer. He is head of the Institute for Life Physics, Tokyo, and the California Institute for Human Science, California. He conducted experiment sin the 70s showing the effects one person's mind on the body of another in a screen remote locale. In other exiperiments he scientifically detected biophoton emission. He is concerned with elucidating the nature of religious experience and the existence of 'subtle energies' using scientific methods. He built two machines: one to measure the 'ki' energy in the meridians (the AMI machine) and another to measure the energy of the chakras or energy centres of the body (The Chakra instrument). The AMI instrument is in use in some American and many Japanese medical institutions as a diagnostic tool and for research into health and disease and also the paranormal.
