Chapter One Help Yourself
Despite continual advances in medical technology and know-how, incidences of illness and pain in this country are on the rise. Hypertension is rampant. The number of deaths from heart disease and stroke is rising instead of falling. Every other person you meet seems to be suffering from chronic pain caused by arthritis or bursitis or some other "-itis," and cancer is striking way too close to home. If that isn't bad enough, each allergy and flu season seems worse than the last.
So why do we get sick or fall victim to pain? Western medicine believes that sickness is caused by invasive elements (including bacteria, viruses, and parasites), inherited conditions, or injury. Pain and incurable disease are often chalked up to aging or chance. But that doesn't explain why we are vulnerable in some cases, but not in others. Nor does it explain why some of us succumb to whatever comes near us, while others never seem to get sick at all.
You can feel your body's field of energy simply by holding your palms as close together as you can without letting them actually touch. Feel the heat? You've just felt the energy that radiates from the cellular vibrations of your skin, tendons, muscles, and blood vessels. In short, you've just felt what the Chinese call chi (pronounced "chee") — your vital energy or lifeforce. In a tightly controlled experiment conducted in 1992 at Beijing's China National Radio and Television Research Laboratory, twenty doctors and scientists saw an individual's emission of energy — of chi — actually register on the ultrasensitive laboratory equipment.
Healthy energy in the body — chi — stems from the healthy vibration of cells in every single part of you. When that vibration is in perfect order, your body has a good flow of energy. If that energy becomes blocked, imbalanced, or diverted, pain or illness results.
It doesn't matter whether we get sick on a physical, emotional, or spiritual level. All sickness begins at the cellular level. Cells are constantly vibrating, contracting and expanding. In the process of contracting and expanding, matter transforms to energy and energy back to matter. When cells contract, it's as if the cells are breathing out. Matter is released and transforms to energy. Conversely, when cells expand, it's as though cells are breathing in. Energy is taken from outside the cells and transforms to matter inside the cells.
So how does this relate to energy problems and getting sick or being in pain?
If cells contract too much or don't expand enough, then too much energy is released in the spaces around the cells. This accumulated excess energy around the cells will not be in balance with the matter inside the cells. This imbalance causes problems like inflammation, pain, and even cancer.
On the other hand, when cells expand too much, they take too much energy from around the cells and convert that energy to matter inside the cells. So you wind up with too much matter inside the cells and insufficient energy outside the cells.This imbalance causes problems like chronic fatigue and other degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
So how does this apply to you? What if I told you that you could access a system that would: Develop energy throughout your body — throughout your main internal organs as well as your main energy centers Balance energy in your body, mind, and soul Release chronic pain Improve the functioning of your immune system Help heal illness Improve stamina and overall health Improve the quality of your life
You can. Even better, you don't have to depend on anyone but yourself to gain these benefits.
Energy in your body can be moved, and you can do it. Using the four keys to power healing presented in this book, you can stimulate cellular vibration, remove blockages, and direct energy flow in a healthy pattern.
The fact is that we all have the power to heal ourselves. I can do it. You can do it. And you can do it better. You are the healer.
The concepts, theories, methods, and techniques introduced in this book are simple, practical, powerful, and profound. These self-healing tools can help you correct unhealthy conditions at the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, thereby enabling you to become more responsible for your own health. If you're already under the care of a doctor or psychologist or receiving any other type of healing service, the techniques you're about to learn will support and complement your other treatments and restore your physical, emotional, and/or mental health even faster.
If you're fortunate enough to have good health, you'll learn how to improve your immune system and quality of life. You'll learn how to prolong that life. You can even learnhow to change your environment to improve your health and energy. People pay thousands of dollars to bring in feng shui masters to move their furniture in order to create better energy flow in their homes or offices. But just by sitting in a room, you'll be able to tell whether you feel serene and at ease or uptight and edgy. It's all about paying attention to what's going on around you and inside of you, and then taking the appropriate steps to improve the energy flow.
In the past, we've been content to let experts dictate how to make us well or pain free, and they've done that with varying degrees of success. Ultimately, however, you are the best arbiter of what's going on with your body, and you are the one best suited to fix it. So why sit in the passenger seat of your own physical, mental, and emotional health? Once you've learned how, you can move over and drive yourself.
