Energy & The Holistic Approach

What does Holistic Mean?

Holistic is an attitude that recognizes that everything is part of a greater whole and therefore not only are we affected by our environment and also have an impact on our surroundings, but our growth as individuals requires moving from seeing parts–to seeing the greater whole that contains those parts.

Holism also implies that body, mind, thoughts, and emotions form the integrated and whole human organism, which itself is integral to the whole of humanity. The word “holistic” comes from the Greek “holos”, meaning seeing reality as composed of integrated wholes, whose properties cannot be reduced to smaller units.

The essence of the connection is what Plato calls the “soul” and it is what makes each of us truly unique and distinct from every other being in creation. Your soul is your essence, your deepest and truest nature and what gives you your distinctive character.

Soul also implies depth and meaning and suggests the intangible and undeniable mystery of life that makes each of us unique.

The word “soul” defines the non-material, vital, “more” that lies at the root of your unique existence and connects all apparent diverse parts of being. Perceiving your soul is seeing the connection between all your parts, in other words perceiving yourself as a “whole.”

What is Vibrational Medicine?

Vibrational medicine is the science of sensing and interfacing with energy. I chose to extract words from  A Practical Guide To Vibrational Medicine: Energy Healing and Spiritual Transformation  written by Richard Gerber MD precisely because he was “not a traditional” medical doctor,  he understood the interconnectivity of energy.

The new model of medicine is part of an emerging field of what has been called “vibrational medicine,” as a science that is part old and part new. It is a synthesis of the best of ancient healing lore combined with the latest discoveries in science to produce an entirely new approach to diagnosing and treating illness.

Vibrational medicine is based upon modern scientific insights into the energetic nature of the atoms and molecules making up our bodies, combined with ancient mystical observation of the body’s unique life-energy systems that are critical but less well understood aspects of human functioning. Rather than seeing the body as a sophisticated machine, animated only by electrochemical reactions.

Vibrational medicine views the body as a complex, integrated life-energy system that provides a vehicle for human soul. In the world of vibrational medicine, illness is not only thought to cause germs, chemical toxins, and physical trauma but also by chronic dysfunctional emotional-energy patterns and unhealthy ways of relating to ourselves and to other people.

Rather than relying on drugs and scalpels to treat illness, the vibrational medicine approach to healing employs the use of different forms of energy, both electromagnetic and the subtle life energy, to bring about healing changes in the body, mind and spirit of the sick individual. For many people, the term “vibrational medicine” will be unfamiliar.

The word “vibrational” conjures up an image of something vibrating or making sound. Sound waves are the most familiar form of vibration people think about when they use the term “vibrational.” But sound waves are actually one form of energy. Light is another form of vibration or oscillating energy.

They are two examples of the many types that make up the so called electromagnetic spectrum, which also includes radio waves, television broadcasts, X rays, ultrasonic waves, and microwaves. Modern physics tell us that the only difference between these forms of energy is that each oscillates at a different frequency or rate of vibration.

Hence, vibrational medicine refers to an evolving viewpoint of health and illness that takes in account all the many forms and frequencies of vibrating energy that contribute to the “multidimensional human energy system”.

The most basic such form is the matter that composes the physical body. According to the new perspective of Einsteinian and quantum physics, the biochemical molecules that make up the physical body are actually a form of vibrating energy.

Are Emotions a Form of Vibrational Energy?

At the present, the earth is going through a major transitory period in which its own resonances and vibrations are altering and moving to a new state of balance. Therefore, the resonance fields of our body are also transiting to a new level of balance from the subatomic, atomic, on up to the cellular, and are affecting our organs and systems.

This is creating tremendous internal biological stresses which get translated into physical challenges that sometimes take the form of disease and sometimes the form of fatigue or agitated states. In the emotional realm it takes the form of emotional instability.

Emotions also have sound and vibration for they are actually a multilevel phenomena which include neurological patterns within the brain. The hormonal responses within your body also relate to the changes in emotion. Emotion affects changes in breathing patterns and oxygenation of the blood as well as changes in blood chemistry.

All of these changes set off specific harmonics. These vibrational changes can be detected and our science is on the verge of doing so. We will soon find that all emotions have a sound or vibratory signature. Thus, all emotions will come to be viewed much like musical chords, some of which are melodic and soothing while others are grating and cacophonous.

What is Heart Coherence?

Discover the heart-based wisdom of ancient cultures whose literature holds the secrets of our ability to be a more conscious creator in our lives! The scientific basis of the coherence model is about increasing self-regularity capacity. Failures of self-regulation are central to the vast majority of health and social problems that plague modern societies.

Coherence implies order, structure, harmony and connection within and among systems whether in atoms, organ systems, people, teams, society, planets and galaxies.

There are different aspects to coherence such as synchronization, connection, alignment, structure, harmony, resonance, entrainment, and wholeness.

Physiological Coherence: physically, coherence describes the degree of order, harmony and stability in the various rhythmic activities within living systems over any given time period. Let’s go straight to the heart of matter.

What is Heart Coherence?

Heart Coherence is a term coined by the HeartMath Institute and refers to a way of life that is heart-based and conscious-oriented.

Heart Rhythm Coherence: heart rhythm coherence is also referred to as heart coherence, cardiac coherence or resonance. Heart coherence is a function mode, measured by heart rate variability (HRV) analysis wherein a person’s heart rhythm pattern becomes more ordered and since wave-like at a frequency of around 0.1 Hz (10 seconds).

Emotions affect physiology more than thoughts. It becomes clear that emotions are primary drivers of the activity in our major body systems. They also determine our level of engagement in life’s events, what motivates us and what we care about.

What is Heart Brain Harmonization?

When the heart and brain work synergistically this is called Heart Brain Harmonization. We have 40,000 specialized cells sensory neurites, they are brain-like cells that are concentrated and we call it “The Little Brain in the Heart.”

These sensory neurites can learn, think, remember, and communicate with us independently than the neurons in the brain. Gregg Braden speak much about emotions, the coherence of the heart and consciousness.

What are Chakras?

  • Sushumna; is the central vertical Nadis “channel” center current where all 7 Chakras are aligned, connected, which energy can run up and down the spin.
  • In actuality there are over 350 Chakras – occur at organs, joints and glands.
  • Chakra: is a Sanskrit word that means spinning wheel or disc.
  • They are energy centers connected to the body through our energy field.
  • Chakras act as step-down transformers for higher frequencies of subtle energy.
  • Chakras process life force hormones biochemical.
  • They are associated with major nerves and the endocrine glands.
  • Chakras are also connected to the “Nadis” and acupuncture system.
  • Average person has 3 to 4 functioning Chakra’s and 3 to 4 that are blocked.
  • Healthy Chakra’s spin clockwise.
  • Chakras contain our psycho-spiritual history and memory of past lives.

Sanskrit name of each Chakra:

Sahasrara = Crown
Ajna = 3rd Eye
Vishuddha = Throat
Anahata = Heart
Manipura = Solar Plexus
Svastisthana = Sacral
Muladhara = Base/ Root

What is the Mer-Ka-Ba?

In simple terms Mer-Ka-Ba is an electromagnetic vehicle made of fields of light (wheels within wheels), which are counter-rotating spirals of electromagnetic energy fields (as seen in DNA). The word Mer-Ka-Ba is made up of three smaller words Mer, Ka and Ba, which as we are using them here, came from ancient Egypt.

It is seen in other cultures as Merkabah, Merkaba and Merkavah. There are several pronunciations, but generally you pronounce it as if the three syllables are separate, with equal accents on each.

“Mer” means Light
“Ka” means Spirit
“Ba” means Body

MER refers to a specific kind of light that was understood in Egypt only during the Eighteenth Dynasty. It was seen as two counter rotating fields of light spinning in the same space, which are generated by certain breathing patterns. KA refers to the individual Spirit and BA refers to the Spirit’s interpretation of its particular reality. In our particular reality, BA is usually defined as the body or physical reality.

So the Mer-Ka-Ba is a counter rotating field of light that affects Spirit and body simultaneously. It is a vehicle that can take Spirit and body (or one’s interpretation of reality) from one world or dimension into another.

In fact, the Mer-Ka-Ba is much more than this because it can create reality as well as move through realities. For our purposes here, however, we will focus mainly on its aspect as an inter-dimensional vehicle (Mer-Ka-Ba means Chariot in Hebrew) that will help us return to our original state of consciousness.

A healthy spinning Mer-Ka-Ba is fifty feet to sixty feet in diameter, proportionate to one’s height. The Mer-Ka-Ba has also been referred to as the eight chakra. The rotation of a spinning Mer-Ka-Ba can be displayed on a computer monitor using the appropriate instruments, and its appearance is identical with the infrared heat envelope of the galaxy, the same basic shape as a flying saucer.

What is Cymatics?

Cymatics, the study of Wave Phenomena, is a science pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972). For 14 years he conducted experiments animating inert powders, pastes, and liquids into life-like, flowing forms, which mirrored patterns found throughout nature, art and architecture.

What’s more, all of these patterns were created using simple sine wave vibrations (pure tones) within the audible range. So what you see is a physical representation of vibration, or how sound manifests into form through the medium of various materials.

Dr. Jenny’s methodology was meticulous, well documented, and totally repeatable. His fascinating body of work offers profound insights into both the physical sciences and esoteric philosophies.

It illustrates the very principles which inspired the ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus, Pythagoras and Plato, on down to Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler, the fathers of modern astronomy. From Wikipedia. Find out more about Cymatics on the website

Is there a difference between Music Therapy and Sound Therapy?

Mankind has long recognized the power of sound. About 2500 years ago, the Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras is recognized as the father of Music Therapy, he developed “musical prescriptions” for his students.

He told them which sounds; mantras, chants, natural sounds, or musical symphonies that would maximize best results during study, relaxation, sleep, etc. He also used music to stir and bring up certain emotions, to spark the psyche of his students with revelations.

Pythagoras understood that there is an esoteric mystical dimension and spiritual connection woven into certain musical harmonies, melodies, symphonies and rhythms. There is a difference between sound therapy/sound healing and music therapy they are not the same discipline.

Music therapy is mostly used in the medical system, as well as in psychotherapy, as a therapeutic modality to alleviate pain, improve memory, releases endorphines in the system, help access deep emotions, induces an overall sense of wellbeing calm and joy, and in a group setting this brings patients closer together by creating sounds/music together. Harpists play in hospitals to sooth the passing who are transitioning because it creates a sense of being envelopped or wrapped. It is very comforting and evokes “the sense” of the divine presence, the experience enables the passing to see, hear, or feel the music of the spheres.

Sound healing is a modality ultizing the transformative properties of vibration, sound and fequency to brings ease. Sound gives a person the freedom and power to attune and align the energies within oneself, and also to heal any ailments no matter physical or psychological. Sound is also connected to the mystical, spiritual, and creative dimensions within. Sound healing refers to sound being used alone as a “tonic” which tones up all of the bodily systems, this also applies in group settings for building coherence and community. Sound can be used individually at home for equilibrium, or can also be applied in a therapeutic setting to access the sub-conscious terrain and inner landscapes of the soul or psyche.

“I believe that sound, especially music, can be a great healer,” says Steven Halpern, Ph.D., composer, researcher and author of Sound Health: The Music and Sounds That make Us Whole – “Sound can relax you. When applied the right way, it can help release energy and help your body heal itself.” Therapists are using sound, especially music, to help people with a wide variety of medical problems, from Alzheimer’s disease to tooth pain.

What are the 3 Aspects of Sacred Sound Principal?

In almost every society, there has been what was termed “the Song of the Absolute” or the threefold song. Three numerologically is the great creative number. It is the number of the Artist, the Musician, the Poet and the Mystic. This threefold song employs three aspects of sacred sound principal.

Rhythm:  from which comes all motion in the Universe. Rhythm is the element which has the most intense and immediate influences on man, and It affects directly both the body and the emotions. Organic life is based on various rhythms; the rhythm of respiration, the rhythm of the heartbeat, the rhythm of various muscular movements, the movement of subtle vibratory rhythms of every cell, every molecule and every atom. rhythm is the pulse of life and it affects all physical conditions. Rhythm can be used to restore the normal, healthy pulse within a person.

Melody:  from which comes the interactions between the divine in the physical and with other life forms. The combination of rhythms, and accents produces those musical ‘Units’ or ‘Wholes’ which are called Melodies. Melody – whether spoken, sung, or played upon an instrument – will soothe and altar emotional and mental states. It can balance mental stress and it can be used to relieve pain. Who has not seen a mother singing or humming softly to a crying child?

Harmony:  from which comes the true spiritual power manifesting in the universe and all humans as our interaction with all elements of life are harmonized. While Melody is produced by a succession of sounds, harmony is produced by the simultaneous sounding of several tones which blend with each other, forming chords. It is through harmony that the power of our own individual energy can link with the energy of the divine. In harmony lies not only  a physical, emotional and mental aspect of sacred sound, but a spiritual aspect as well.
