This is a brief introduction to the human energy field..
Everything in the universe vibrates and all living organisms have a vibrating energy field. All living cells, tissues, and organs, and the body as a whole generate measurable electromagnetic fields, called subtle energy fields or biofields. The human energy field has areas where this energy appears to be more concentrated and focused, these areas are referred to as chakras or vortexes.
In his book Human Energy Fields, Dr. Colin Ross MD writes “The science of human energy fields unifies eastern and western medicine. It provides a method for studying therapeutic touch, acupuncture, kundalini yoga, and many practices in alternative medicine and traditional healing. The core proposition of the science is that the human energy field, called chi, in Chinese medicine, and prana, in ayurvedic medicine, the human aura, the life force, biofields, and the electromagnetic field of the body are one and the same thing”.
Energy healing therapy works on the principal of low-level energy field interactions between the therapist and the client. Many indigenous modalities are based on the principals and concepts of energy healing techniques, which go back thousands of years, and there are similarities that exist between these ancient concepts and modern subtle electromagnetic energy field theories.
Now try to imagine this energy field permeating and completely encompassing the physical body above, below and all around the physical body, and connecting us with our environment, other people, and the energy fields of everything in the universe.
It is believed that all illness has its origins in the body’s energy field. Research into the human energy field would suggest that this energy field in and around our body keeps us healthy and revitalized, allowing our life-force energy to flow uninterrupted. Blockages or imbalances on any level of our energy field can interrupt this flow of life-force energy, and may ultimately lead to illness.
There may be many reasons why “blockages” or “imbalances” occur in our energy field. These blockages or imbalances may be the result of suppressed emotional issues, accidents, injuries or traumas, we may have experienced during our life dating as far back as childhood or pre-birth.
How we think and feel, what we eat and drink, our lifestyle, our habits, our belief systems, our environment, our stresses and how we cope with them, and how we treat our physical body, may all have an impact on our health. The energy created by our experiences, emotions, thoughts, mental attitudes and perceptions permeate via the chakras and our energy field to our cells, tissues and organs, and ultimately appear to have their affect on our physical body.
