ENERGY HEALING ESSENTIAL WELLNESS TOOLS
As humanity explores the Universe and the mysteries of life, we find that energy is the foundation of life and a key element to healing. Energy medicine uses a wide spectrum of vibrational healing tools, including light, sound, and subtle life force energies such as “chi/prana” to bring balance and harmony to living systems.
Jed Shlackman, M.S. Ed., LMHC, Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Jed has been studying and exploring the nature and processes of energy and consciousness since the 1990s, integrating hypnosis, reiki, energy psychology, and other mind-body and energetic healing methods to help clients make powerful shifts and transformations on physical, psychological, and spiritual levels.
Background Jed has a B.A. In psychology from the University of Miami and an M.S. Ed. In School Counseling from the University of Miami. Jed became certified as a Reiki Master in 2000 and certified in hypnotherapy in Jed has also received training and certifications in mind-body and energetic healing modalities such as Psych-K, ThetaHealing, Quantum Touch, Neuromodulation Technique, SomaEnergetics, and Regenetics. In addition to formal training, Jed has done extensive exploration of leading edge knowledge and resources in the holistic and natural healing arts, including reading about alternative medicine and nutrition since childhood. Jed attended the University of Miami undergraduate with a National Merit Scholarship and while completing graduate school Jed went through a process of spiritual awakening that directed him to look beyond the surface of reality and explore metaphysics, parapsychology, and various other phenomena that challenge consensus and orthodox views of reality and health care. This led Jed to become committed to helping heal, empower, educate, and awaken others to hidden knowledge and wisdom and to their own potential for health, happiness, and fulfillment.
The Concept of Vitalism The impressive feats of healing, longevity, strength, and mind over matter associated with mastery of vital energy are recognized the world over. These energies are experienced on a daily basis by a very large number of people. This includes those possessing the sensitivity to ‘perceive’ energy fields directly, those undertaking energy based healing modalities such as hands-on healing, breathwork, and practitioners of the energy based martial arts or yogic sciences. The fact that the recognition of vital energy has had near universal acceptance and application over many millennia in numerous cultures around the world is suggestive of its validity. This model underlies many traditional medical systems (e.g. Ayurvedic medicine as well as Traditional Tibetan and Chinese Medicine and native shamanism of the Americas), martial arts (such as karate), as well as many of the world’s principal personal and spiritual development disciplines (many varieties of Shamanism, Yoga, Qigong, & Western traditions of Alchemy, Kabbalah, and Christian healing practices). We need to appreciate the vast continuities of these systems over the course of many millennia.
Using Vital Energy To Heal Every living thing is dependent upon a spiritual energy source for its very existence. Scientific studies have shown that each cell in the body emits light - biophotons. We live in a sea of energy and our bodies are composed of energy. Our energy system is constantly exchanging energy with its environment. In 1984, Nobel laureate Carlo Rubbia proved that the human body is composed mostly of energy and of very little matter. To be exact, for each particle of matter, there are 974,600,000 units of energy (photons). In other words, only approximately one billionth of your body consists of matter and the rest is vibrational energy. All matter that comprises your physical body, the chair you are sitting on and the planet you are living on, behaves essentially in a quantum-mechanical way. - Andreas Moritz, Ph.D. Within our body, our organs and cells all have a level of vibration. When our body becomes out of balance, disease occurs. Extensive research has been done using subtle energy therapies like reiki and healing touch as well as electromagnetic frequencies of light and sound, showing that these forms of energy can help bring our physical and emotional systems into balance.
Asian/Oriental medicine teaches us that our bodies have meridians, energy currents/circuits carrying energy throughout our system, connecting with each major organ. When blockages or imbalances in the flow of energy through these meridians happen, disease often follows. The Chinese use acupuncture needles to clear blockages in the meridians. Sound, color, light, and hands-on chi application can be used in place of needles for the same effect. Since a disturbance in energy fields and energy flow precedes physical dysfunction, energy healing methods are an ideal form of preventative medicine. Even “physical” substances such as crystals, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and proteins are primarily energetic in nature, and the way these substances affect our body depends on their energy state. For this reason, traditional herbal medicine considers the energetic properties of herbs in prescribing herbal formulas to promote balance for a patient. Also, synthetic vitamins are poorly absorbed and can produce toxic effects in the body since they are energetically out of harmony with the living system that is ingesting them. Research showing vitamins to be ineffective or harmful is most often done using synthetic, unnatural vitamin sources, thereby misleading the public about the safety and benefit of natural bioavailable nutrients.
Chakras: Wheels Of Light The chakras are subtle energy vortices that govern the flow of subtle energy into the physical body. In Indian/Ayurvedic traditions there are 7 major chakras connected to the central channel of the body, from the base of the spine up to the crown of the head. When we experience stress, trauma, and difficulties with particular aspects of our life the chakras can become congested or distorted. One common focus of energy healing is clearing and balancing the chakras. Yoga and other popular practices are often able to help open and balance the chakras as well.
Get To The Source “To Treat Pain Or Illness, Seek Its Root” When our energy system is functioning optimally the cells and organs of our body sustain our health. When our energy is drained or disrupted the systems of our body can start to malfunction. To achieve a full recovery from illness it is vital to treat the energetic layer of our being, including psychological factors that are present, as the greatest influence on our energetic state is our thoughts and emotions. Our feelings, memories, and beliefs are recorded or imprinted in our energy field, down to the level of each cell. There are many cases of organ transplant recipients who experience the feelings, memories, likes & dislikes of the organ donor. Chinese medicine and other healing systems that have functioned for thousands of years consider the vital force to be the foundation of health.
History And Studies: Energy healing can be traced back many thousands of years in shamanism and native healing traditions around the world. The Chinese acupuncture meridians were mapped thousands of years ago in China and other parts of the world and are now validated by electrical measurements. Systems such as yoga, tai chi, chi gong, and pranayama (breathwork) have been used for thousands of years to help guide energy flow. Modern research has examined the benefits of acupuncture, reiki, healing touch, bioenergy healing, yoga, meditation, energy psychology, and other forms of energy-related therapies. Many studies have produced impressive results, although the ability to control variables in energy healing research is more of a challenge than in conventional medicine, since the energy and consciousness of the practitioner and patient are even more directly related to the treatment effect and the treatment is not as uniform as a biochemical therapeutic agent would be.
In 1994 and 1996, Linda Russek and Gary Schwartz studied pairs of subjects sitting in the same room, sitting quietly with eyes closed, not touching each other. The EKG and EEG rhythms indicated that their heart and brain rhythms synchronized, and the synchronization could be enhanced if they were connected electrically by a wire held in the left hand of one person and the right hand of the other. Cancer Patients’ Responses to Healing Touch. The Cancer Wellness Center sent surveys to 92 participants and received 43 responses. Summaries of participants' responses to HT treatments: Improved relaxation, 98%; Improved sense of control, 75%; Positive change in energy, 87%; Improved interpersonal relationships, 63%; Improved sense of well-being, 92%; Decreased pain, 85%; Decreased side effects of cancer treatments, 77%. (Judy Brannon, “A Patient Satisfaction Survey for Cancer Patients Experiencing Healing Touch at the Cancer Wellness Center. “) Specific Studies
William Bengston, Ph.D. has been conducting research in the area of anomalous healing for several decades and has proven the effectiveness of his technique in 10 controlled animal experiments conducted in 5 university biological and medical laboratories. His healing research has produced 100% successful full cures of transplanted mammary cancer and methylcholanthrene induced sarcomas in experimental mice by laying-on- of-hands techniques that he helped to develop. He has also investigated assorted correlates to healing such as geomagnetic micropulsations and brainwave EEG harmonics and entrainment. Dr. Elisabeth Targ and Fred Sicher tested healing in a double-blind study with patients having end-stage AIDS. During the 6 month trial, 40% of the control group died but all patients in the healing group were alive and had improved! They decided to run another test with a larger group all perfectly matched down to personal habits and found that the treated group did better physically and psychologically than the untreated group. And none of them knew who was being treated or not since it was a double-blind study and healings were done at a distance.

THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE, ENERGY MEDICINE “A complete approach to health means addressing not only our physical body, but our energetic body as well.” - Andrew Weil, M.D. “As we get better at understanding how little we know about the body, we begin to realize that the next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine.” - Mehmet Oz, M.D. “Reiki is used to support the body's natural ability to heal itself. It releases spiritual and emotional blocks, and brings a feeling of harmony and vitality”" - Gary Null, Ph.D. “Most over-the-counter and almost all prescribed drug treatments merely mask symptoms or control health problems or in some way alter the way organs or systems such as the circulatory system work. Drugs almost never deal with the reasons why these problems exist, while they frequently create new health problems as side effects of their activities.” - John R. Lee, M.D. “The medicine of the future will be energy medicine, and chemical medicine will be a subset of medicine as a whole. Probably 80 percent of medicine will be energy medicine, and 20 percent chemical medicine.” - Robert Jacobs, N.M.D., D.Hom. (Med)
Quotes “Future medicine will be based on controlling energy in the body” - William Tiller, Ph.D. (Stanford University, Nobel Laureate) “Body chemistry is governed by quantum cellular fields.” - Murray Gell-Mann, Ph.D. (Physicist, Yale & MIT, Nobel Laureate) “Diseases are to be diagnosed and prevented via energy field assessment.” - George Crile, Sr., MD (founder of The Cleveland Clinic)
More quotes “The art of healing comes from nature and not from the physician. Therefore, the physician must start from nature with an open mind.” - Paracelsus “A wise man ought to realize that health is his most valuable possession.” - Hippocrates “There is evidence that acupuncture influences the production of and distribution of a great many neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, and that this in turn alters the perception of pain.” - David Eisenberg, M.D., Clinical Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School “Because the meridians influence every cell in the body and pass through every organ and organ system, acupuncture provides health practitioners with an accurate and noninvasive means of determining health deficiences, as well as a method of reestablishing balance.” - William Michael Cargile, B.S., D.C., F.I.A.C.A., Chairman of Research for the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
Phantom Leaf Effect
The Aura - Biofield
In mapping the bioenergy fields, Dr. Valerie Hunt of UCLA's Department of Physiological Sciences has found that each individual has a unique resting pattern. She calls this the Signature Field. The Signature Field of a healthy human being is composed of balanced, coherent energy patterns across the full spectrum of frequencies. This coherency shows up on a graph as smooth, gentle, shallow waves evenly distributed throughout the frequency spectrum. The Signature Fields of human beings who have (or are soon going to develop) disease are of two kinds: deficiency patterns, and hyperactive patterns. These show up on the graph as thick, jagged waves concentrated in the high- or low-frequency bands. Deficiency diseases like cancer and fatigue syndrome have anticoherent patterns in the high frequency ranges, with almost no energy at all in the lower frequencies. Hyperactive conditions like colitis, hypertension, and skin problems show anticoherent patterns in the low frequencies, with absent vibrations in the high frequencies.
Dr. Hunt says that the type of disease — deficiency versus hyperactive — can be determined by AuraMeter readings (still in research stage, not available for the public), but not what tissues the disease will attack. "That is determined by genetic weakness and other factors that are at this time unreadable by the AuraMeter. But we can tell what kind of diseases will occur, for they fall into those two categories: areas where there is too much chi, or energy, and areas where energy or chi is lacking. The pattern of frequencies tells us this." "Until now," Dr. Hunt says, "many human diseases have been characterized as 'etiology unknown.' In other words, the cause of the disease could not be determined, and therefore the only possible treatment was alleviation of symptoms. But physiological symptoms appear because of the field disturbance. If we correct the disturbance in the field, the symptoms disappear and we have been healed. If we treat the symptoms directly, then when a stressful situation once more aggravates the incoherent energy that is the source of the problem, the disease condition returns." There are, says Dr. Hunt, five variables in a successful healing: (1) the field of the disease, (2) the field of the person, (3) the field of the therapist, (4) the field of the therapy, and (5) the combined field of the therapist with the therapy being performed. "When the energy of the therapist performing a particular therapy moves and changes the anticoherent energy field, that disease will be healed." Dr. Hunt says. "But it has to be both the therapist and the therapy that creates this field. And the energy of the healer combined with the energy of the therapy has to transact with the person being healed in order for results to occur.

Balanced vs. Deficient Fields
Personality & Dissociation Persons with multiple personality disorder exhibit distinct physiological changes when they switch personality – allergies and medical conditions will appear or disappear, responses to drugs will change, and even physical features may shift their appearance. Consciousness is the Source field that governs all other fields and the subconscious mind can create or heal any physical condition. Since most of our consciousness is in the sub-conscious level it is vital to access that level when offering healing resources.
Wave Genetics Three series of experiments with identical protocol were conducted by the groups of P. Gariaev in 2000 in Moscow Russia, in 2001 in Toronto, Canada, and in 2005 in Nizhni Novgorod, Russia. These are more advanced experiments based on the principles and technology of WaveGenetics. The goal of the experiments was to test new technology for regenerating damaged pancreas. Pancreas is an endocrine gland which has several vital functions, the major one being production of insulin, a hormone responsible for sugar metabolism. A control group of rats was injected a lethal doses of a poison called alloxan which destroys pancreas. As a result, all the rats in the control group died from diabetes in 3-4 days. Then the same lethal dose of alloxan was injected to another group of rats. And when the rats reached the critical condition, they were exposed to light images/waves coming from a quantum bio-computer. Those light images/waves were created beforehand when the bio-computer read information from the pancreas surgically removed from healthy newborn rats of the same species as those used in the alloxan experiments. One can explain the results of the experiment using the following analogy. The pancreas gland contains DNA-movies with information about healthy condition of the pancreas in its genetic apparatus. And this video morphogenic information programmed the stem cells of sick rats to regenerate their pancreas gland. Combined statistics for all 3 series of experiments is as follows. Altogether, around 90% of all the rats had their pancreas gland restored and their health recovered.
Wave Information... Researchers have also used light wave transmissions to carry information from one species to another – causing amphibian embryos to develop into an entirely different species purely by exposure to light waves tuned in to the information from the other species. "Life is fundamentally electromagnetic rather than chemical, the DNA blueprint functioning as a bio-hologram which serves as a guiding matrix for organizing physical form." - Iona Miller & Richard Miller
