Understanding the Mechanics of Energy Work
Energy work, in the way we will be applying it here, is specifically about tapping into the meridians of the human energetic field. As you now realize, this is anything but a new ability for the human being. It has long been known that the activities of cells and tissues generate electrical fields, which can be directly measured and detected through reactions on the skins surface. In fact, this ability to consciously communicate and activate each of the known 72,000 Nadis, or minor energetic centers, predates even the Chinese acupuncture system.
Energy work may be familiar to the initiate in any of myriad guises, whether it is a direct energy transfer like Reiki or a physiological stimulation based practice such as EFT. One particularly interesting and potent form of energy work, which is now embraced by millions worldwide, is Qi Gong. Qi Gong is a traditional Chinese practice and is related to acupuncture and Tai Chi. Qi Gong practitioners use a sacred rhythmic motion to balance and activate the body's energetic field, bringing alignment between the energy system of the self, the physical vessel, and even outside forces. It is a most elegant form of spiritual activity to say the least, and is well worth exploring for those who wish to increase their energy work beyond the scope of our current aims.
Many of the energy work traditions familiar to contemporary minds are best known for their use in healing, but it should be recognized that there are many other benefits and uses for learning these techniques. In this program, the energy work is intended to teach control to the initiate, as the processes involved in separation from the physical form and navigating within the non-physical realms largely involves controlling the energetics of the human system.
It should be remembered that the control of these systems is not a new, but an ancient concept. Today, even members of the scientific community have begun to explore and validate the concept of the human energetic field. Within recent decades the SQUID magnetometer was developed. This device is capable of detecting tiny bio magnetic fields connected to psychological activities in the body. Scientists are now using this technology to map the way diseases alter bio magnetic fields around the body. Even more startling, Dr. Robert Beck, a physicist and Nobel Prize nominee, claims that using an electronic stimulation of blood can actually eradicate viruses, parasites, bacteria, fungi, and even cancer from the body. His use of outside electrical stimulation can be seen as a technological extension of the work done by an energy healer using his or her own bioelectrical field. Other scientists have been studying the possibility that DNA molecules, when in their natural state, have superconductive properties, and, consequently, that the electrical energy system of the body deserves deeper study. Clearly, these scientists and others recognize that the human energetic field is not only real, but also significant enough to warrant their research efforts.
While all this information and the myriad of traditions related to energy work might suggest that this is a complicated area of practice, we can simplify our efforts by considering the ancient concept of what we might call the sacred circuit. The majority of ancient cultures understood and taught that every cell in the body constantly receives a pulse from the brain; in turn, the brain constantly receives a pulse from the heart; the heart constantly receives a pulse from the earth; the earth constantly receives a pulse from the solar system; the solar system receives a pulse from the galaxy; and the galley constantly receives a pulse from the greater universe. This pulse is a signal that, when heeded, aligns the body with the universe on an energetic level, and works as a unifying force throughout the cosmos. This sacred circuit quite naturally reflects the Hermetic principles that have been presented thus far. Recognition of this circuit is integral when proceeding in all energy work, as it is the ultimate goal of energy work to learn to align with these deeper forces, in a way that provides harmony and freedom to the individual self.
Of course, all of this information cannot substitute for the essential ingredient necessary for developing the capacity for energy work. That ingredient, of course, is conscious will and belief. One must have an experiential recognition that these energies exist, and a certainty that the mind can alter the function of these energies through the application of conscious will. This is one reason for the choice of the spiraling vortex technique utilized in this section: this methodology has been developed very precisely and with the specific goal of ensuring that anyone who follows the process as described can easily achieve energetic stimulation. In essence, we will be providing a high level of stimulation to the energy centers, and by so doing will expand our awareness of these centers on an experiential level.
The serious pupil will no doubt use all of these techniques accurately, and with dedication, allowing a feeling of complete physical discontinuity to take place while stimulating the energy body.
The first of these additional energy work techniques involves bouncing awareness throughout the body between its left and right counterparts while drastically increasing energy flow. This involves pulling the flow of energy between two locations by means of shifting awareness points.
*Begin this by directing full awareness into the left foot. Then shift awareness into the right foot. Begin to notice the energy transfer from one point into the other. See it move across the floor as physical sensations sweep between both feet. Control and alter the speed of this energetic stream with awareness alone. (Repeat as felt needed)
*Shift full awareness in the left knee. Then shift awareness into the right knee. Feel the energy transfer from one point to the other. See and feel this energetic stream moving between each knee as physical sensations sweep back and forth. (Repeat as felt needed)
*Guide full awareness into the left hip. Then shift awareness into the right hip. Feel the energy transfer from one point to the other, gliding through the base of your torso. See it moving between each hip as physical sensations sweep back and forth. Feel this energy moving and stimulating the entire pelvic area. Control and alter the speed of this energetic stream with focused awareness. (Repeat as felt needed)
*Move awareness into the left hand. Then shift awareness into the right hand. Feel the energy transfer from one point to the other. See the energy moving between the hands as physical sensations sweep back and forth. (Repeat as felt needed)
*Guide awareness fully into the left elbow. Then shift awareness into the right elbow. Feel the energy transfer from one point to the other, gliding through the core of your torso. See it moving between each elbow as physical sensations sweep back and forth throughout the entire abdominal region. (Repeat as felt needed)
*Shift full awareness into the left shoulder. Then shift awareness into the right shoulder. Feel the energy transfer from one point to the other, gliding through your entire chest region. See it moving between both shoulders as physical sensations sweep back and forth throughout the entire chest region. (Repeat as felt needed)
*Guide full awareness down to the bottom of the spine. Then shift awareness up to the back of the neck. Feel the energy transfer from one point to the other as it glides through the energetic vortex of your imagination. See it moving up and down the entire spine through each vertebra as physical sensations burst throughout your entire back.
Note: Alternative bounce patterns are up to the individual where additional work and stimulation are needed. A bounce in awareness from the foot to the hip will stimulate the entire leg at once. A bounce in energy from the hand to the shoulder will stimulate the entire arm at once. Mix it up and be creative to exercise your body awareness skills. The benefits of the stimulation process are extremely beneficial and can be done daily to simply activate the grids and meridians of the energy body.
*And finally, a full body-bounce in awareness from the toes to the head and back may be performed to stimulate your entire being.
Place your awareness on a radiating white ball of energy just below the feet. This ball should be large enough to encompass the entire girth of the body. With a slow deep inhale, move this glowing ball slowly up through your body until it rests just above your head. With a deep exhale, move the ball back down your through your body and place it just below your feet again. Continue this full body energy bounce feeling the white glow moving through every cell tissue and organ in your body. This light is now felt as purification healing energy. Continue breathing slowly but now fluctuate the speed of the white energy ball with your awareness.
