Weight Loss


It must be noted here that the psychology of weight loss is a complicated matter. There is no single ingredient that can turn a fat person into a thin one. However, recognizing that there is a psychological component to successful weight loss may, in fact, be half the battle. Once an individual recognizes that he or she is engaged in a psychological fight, he or she is better able to do battle. By retraining oneself to seek healthy approaches to diet, one can, in effect, mold oneself into a new individual—one that no longer lives to eat, but simply eats to live.

Swine influenza explained





In response to cases of swine influenza A(H1N1), reported in Mexico and the United States of America, the Director-General convened a meeting of the Emergency Committee to assess the situation and advise her on appropriate responses.

The establishment of the Committee, which is composed of international experts in a variety of disciplines, is in compliance with the International Health Regulations (2005).

The first meeting of the Emergency Committee was held on Saturday 25 April 2009.

After reviewing available data on the current situation, Committee members identified a number of gaps in knowledge about the clinical features, epidemiology, and virology of reported cases and the appropriate responses.

The Committee advised that answers to several specific questions were needed to facilitate its work.

The Committee nevertheless agreed that the current situation constitutes a public health emergency of international concern.

Based on this advice, the Director-General has determined that the current events constitute a public health emergency of international concern, under the Regulations.

Concerning public health measures, in line with the Regulations the Director-General is recommending, on the advice of the Committee, that all countries intensify surveillance for unusual outbreaks of influenza-like illness and severe pneumonia.

The Committee further agreed that more information is needed before a decision could be made concerning the appropriateness of the current phase 3.

OUTSIDE OF TIME AND SPACE


In neurotheology, psychologists and neurologists try to pinpoint which regions turn on, and
which turn off, during experiences that seem to exist outside time and space. In this way it differs from the rudimentary research of the 1950s and 1960s that found, yeah, brain waves change when you meditate. But that research was silent on why brain waves change, or which specific regions in the brain lie behind the change.

Neuroimaging of a living, working brain simply didn't exist back then. In contrast, today's studies try to identify the brain circuits that surge with activity when we think we have encountered the divine, and when we feel transported by intense prayer, an uplifting ritual or sacred music.

Although the field is brand new and the answers only tentative, one thing is clear. Spiritual experiences are so consistent across cultures, across time and across faiths, says Wulff, that it "suggest[s] a common core that is likely a reflection of structures and processes in the human brain."

There was a feeling of energy centered within me ... going out to infinite space and returning ... There was a relaxing of the dualistic mind, and an intense feeling of love. I felt a profound letting go of the boundaries around me, and a connection with some kind of energy and state of being that had a quality of clarity, transparency and joy.

I felt a deep and profound sense of connection to everything, recognizing that there never was a true separation at all.

Is God all in our heads? A look at 'Neurotheology' and the biological basis of spirituality

- Faith Is More Than A Feeling

The problem with Neurotheology is that it confuses spiritual experiences with religion That is how Dr. Michael J. Baime, a colleague of Andrew Newberg's at Penn, describes what he feels at the moment of peak transcendence when he practices Tibetan Buddhist meditation, as he has since he was 14 in 1969. Baime offered his brain to Newberg, who, since childhood, had wondered about the mystery of God's existence. At Penn, Newberg's specialty is radiology, so he teamed with Eugene d'Aquili to use imaging techniques to detect which regions of the brain are active during spiritual experiences. The scientists recruited Baime and seven other Tibetan Buddhists, all skilled meditators.

Insomnia just like sleep-disasters for me


Insomnia is one of the most commonly addressed problems with sleeping. It refers to a state of habitual sleeplessness. It can include the issue of not being able to fall asleep in the first place or the problem of waking up during the night and not being able to fall back to sleep. This condition can last from a few days to weeks or months at a time.

Besides not being able to sleep, other symptoms include waking up early in the morning and yet not feeling awake or refreshed enough from the sleep you did have. Also, daytime fatigue and drowsiness along with irritability will highlight that you are not getting enough of or the right kind of sleep. For some individuals the problem becomes so persistent that they will resort to sleeping pills or alcohol to achieve some rest.

It has been stated that close to 20% of the population can be suffering from insomnia at any given time. And while it is not regarded to be dangerous to an individual in and of itself, it can be extremely frustrating and have an eventual dramatic effect on their daily lives.

Initially the effect may just be the aforementioned drowsiness or irritability. And for many it may result in a lesser ability to perform routine tasks or demonstrate higher creativity. If it continues over a few days it can begin to dramatically affect one's work performance and may even alter one's personality traits. If it becomes a chronic issue, studies have shown that productivity declines, safety and health problems can result

As can be imagined, there is a long list of medical causes that could contribute to someone developing insomnia. These include straightforward physical pain and muscle aches, indigestion, breathing issues, depression, anxiety, hypoglycemia, stress and profound grief. Obviously, while some of these conditions may be temporary, others may be lifelong issues that require a constant surveillance.

Certain drugs or food products such as caffeine can stimulate the body and contribute to sleeplessness. Included in this list are Pseudoephedrine which is a decongestant that is found in many cold and allergy products, medications for heart problems and high blood pressure, some appetite suppressant drugs, the antiseizure drug Dilantin, and some thyroid replacement medication.

In recent times, attention has been brought to a condition known as 'restless leg syndrome' which can also prevent someone from getting a good night's sleep. This is manifested by their legs twitching or jerking involuntarily while lying down. Much is unfortunately still unknown about this problem.

However, a very well documented and serious disorder known as 'sleep apnea' disrupts sleep through irregular breathing. The breathing process actually stops, sometimes for a few seconds, or up to as much as two minutes. Gasping for air the affected sleeper awakens. This can repeat itself dozens of times during the night and yet the individual may not remember it in the morning.

Of course other factors can come into play such as traveling and going through a change in time zones. Who hasn't had to fight a case of jet lag? Or some other change in schedule could throw off a person's sleep schedule and make it difficult to get back into what may be a more usual routine. And there also exists the possibility that a person simply doesn't follow through on good bedtime habits that can induce good sleep. Ultimately, whatever the underlying cause, the result is insomnia. And it can become a great challenge to find a good night's sleep.


There are different kinds of insomnia:

  • Sleep Onset Insomnia(Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome): A disorder in which the major sleep episode is delayed in relation to the desired clock time that results in symptoms of sleep onset insomnia or difficulty in awakening at the desired time.

  • Idiopathic Insomnia: A lifelong inability to obtain adequate sleep that is presumably due to an abnormality of the neurological control of the sleep-wake system. The insomnia is long-standing, commonly beginning in early childhood, sometimes since birth.

  • Psychophysiological Insomnia: A disorder of somatized tension (conversion of anxiety into physical symptoms) and learned sleep-preventing association that results in a complaint of insomnia and associated decreased functioning during wakefulness.

  • Childhood Insomnia (Limit-Setting Sleep Disorder): Primarily a childhood disorder that is characterized by the inadequate enforcement of bedtimes by a caretaker with resultant stalling or refusal to go to bed at the appropriate time.

    Another kind of insomnia that generally affects children is called Sleep-Onset Association Disorder. This disorder occurs when sleep onset is impaired by the absence of a certain object or set of circumstances, such as being held, rocked or nursed; television watching, radio listening, etc. ( Could be true for the Peanuts cartoon character Linus and his blanket?)

  • Food Allergy Insomnia: A disorder of initiating and maintaining sleep due to an allergic response to food allergens. It is typically associated with the introduction of a new food or drink, i.e., cow's milk.

  • Enviornmental Insomnia (Enviornmental Sleep Disorder): A sleep disturbance due to a disturbing enviornmental factor that causes a complaint of either insomnia or excessive sleepiness. (How about the garbage man or the leaf blower early in the morning!?)

  • Transient Insomnia (Adjustment Sleep Disorder): Represents sleep disturbance temporally related to acute stress, conflict or enviornmental change causing emotional agitation.

  • Periodic Insomnia (Non 24-Hour Sleep-Wake Syndrome): Consists of a chronic (lasting a long time) steady pattern consisting of 1-2 hour daily delays in sleep onset and wake times in an individual living in society.

  • Altitude Insomnia: An acute (short and sharp course, not chronic) insomnia usually accompanied by headaches, loss of appetite, and fatigue, that occurs following ascent to high altitudes. (Unless you are a mountain climber or a mountain goat, this kind of insomnia won't apply)

  • Hypnotic-Dependency Insomnia (Hypnotic-Dependent Sleep Disorder): Characterized by insomnia or excessive sleepiness that is associated with tolerance to or withdrawal from hypnotic medications.

  • Stimulant-Dependent Sleep Disorder: Charcterized by a reduction of sleepiness or suppression of sleep by central stimulants, and resultant alterations in wakefulness following drug abstinence.

  • Alcohol-Dependent Insomnia (Alcohol-Dependent Sleep Disorder): Characterized by the assisted initiation of sleep onset by the sustained ingestion of alcohol that is used for its hypnotic effect.

  • Toxin-Induced Sleep Disorder: Characterized by either insomnia or excessive sleepiness produced by poisoning with heavy metals or organic toxins.

REIKI AND CHAKRAS


The Human Energy Field (HEF) or subtle energy field is comprised of the aura, chakras
and meridians. These terms are now becoming more mainstream as the general
public becomes aware of the value of acupuncture, massage, and of course – Reiki.
Imagine our bodies in terms of layers that have major and minor arteries and energy
centers. You might see it as an energy matrix or grid or highway with entrance points,
gateways, and transformers. The chakras or energy centers are like transformers, the
meridians like pathways and the aura a multi-layered, egg-shaped energy field. The
term “chakra” comes from the Sanskrit, a sacred Indian language, and means “wheel
of light.” You might also see it described as a spinning vortex or power center.

Even though Mikao Usui did not teach the chakra system, he did use techniques to
build the energy flow through the meridians and to strengthen the hara center. The
Hara or Tan Tien is the location of original life force energy we are all born with.
(Reference Diane Stein’s “Essential Reiki” p.34) Hawayo Takata was aware of the tara
method and is not known to have taught the chakra system in the West. A number of
her students included the chakra system into the modern teachings of Reiki, including
them in the techniques and the attunement process.

The seven major energy centers in the physical body (based on the endocrine glands)
have correspondences in the other layers (etheric, astral, mental, spiritual) of the aura.
With each chakra there is also an association with color (viewed by clairvoyants in the
etheric field) as well as a relationship or connection with other attributes, symbols or
issues. For example, the rainbow colors – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and
violet – are related to the seven major chakras located at the base of the spine, sacral
center, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow and crown. On another level, the basic
qualities of chakras as written about by Caroline Myss are listed as follows:

Root Chakra – groundedness, family identity, bonding
Sacral Chakra – creativity, survival instincts, sexuality
Solar Plexus Chakra – self respect, self esteem, ethics
Heart Chakra – love and compassion
Throat Chakra – choice, faith, personal authority
Third Eye Chakra – wisdom, intellectual skills, inspiration
Crown Chakra – inner divinity, inner guidance

These qualities or correspondences can help the client focus on or clarify an
intention. This may help the practitioner focus on a chakra or location for hand
placements. As mentioned, there are other major and minor chakras, all serving a
particular function and purpose. So what is the importance of the chakra system in
relation to Reiki? Diane Stein says all we need to know in Reiki I are the hand
positions in relation to the seven major chakras. Yes, we can reference each chakra,
its physical location and the effects of imbalance in that particular part of the body.
Since Reiki works on the cause and effect, understanding the mental/emotional/
spiritual root can assist us in understanding the physical effect. Knowing about a
disease may help us decide which hand position to use. Just think of “The Original
Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui” which lists treatment positions. But is this part of
our role as Reiki practitioners? During a Reiki treatment we find that the chakras
become balanced and we may sense/visualize whether chakras are open or closed,
blocked, etc. In other words, we find energy blockages are cleared with the use of
Reiki. Some teachers may show you which chakras work well in pairs, where to place
hands. Some Reiki practitioners list chakra healing in their repertoire. Teachers may
show you (so you can show others) how to sense the aura and what subtle energy
feels like.


Worth mentioning are the five paragraphs that William Rand has written about the
aura, chakras and meridians. He states that treating the chakras can also be an
important part of giving a Reiki treatment. In fact, Lawrence Ellyard and other authors
write about using a specific sequence of symbols for chakra balancing. Indeed other
teachers have developed techniques or systems in working with the chakra system.


A further discussion on some of the other chakras is given by Walter Lubeck in the
article “Understanding the Body of Light” published in Reiki News magazine in which
he references nadis (meridians) and aura chakras. While there are many books and
articles concerning the chakra system, their study is both fascinating and
enlightening.
To sum up, awareness of the chakras in relation to Reiki:

Makes describing the hand placements easier.
Gives us a relationship between chakras and organs.
Increases our knowledge of how Reiki works in the attunement process.
Helps us understand the needs of clients.
Enables us to use Reiki for further chakra balancing.
Increases our ability to converse about the holistic relationship between the
physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms.
Gives us a new and brighter world to explore with our consciousness.


In our Reiki practice we are concerned with health and balance. The chakra system is
designed to be healthy and balanced. Knowing about the chakras can only expand our
conscious awareness of who we truly are and what magnificent beings we truly are.
Here we have an intricate world that is awesome and one we can experience in many
ways. Are the worlds of Reiki and chakras connected? You decide

HEF- human energy fields


Throughout history, many spiritual healers have relied on information about their patients via energetics. This might take the form of aura colors, for example. Oftentimes, these healers were also looking to heal within the physical body, as well as in the emotional and spiritual. Over activity and weakness of a person's energy can affect all three of those aspects, and can be causal in illness and disease. The energy of the body of which I am speaking has been called by many names over the years. The Hindi refer to chakras and auras, and the energy patterns that flow through them. The Chinese utilize the terms chi or qi and shen in referring to the energy within and around the body. Western cultures often refer to the HEF- human energy fields, and so on. Each culture takes the information they gather from these energies to help create the healing tools they use in that culture.

The manner in which people go about healing is varied. There are the completely hands-off approaches, such as energy healing and prayer. There are also the hands-on techniques of massage, accupressure, tough therapy, and others. Gentle internal practices would include the use of herbs and medicines, while invasive techniques would include surgical procedures. There is not one right way to heal, rather, all aspects of healing can work together, and each should only be used in appropriate settings and situations.

The way in which an aura reading can contribute to the healing process is quite simple. Aura colors are believed to indicate the forms of energy that are working in and around a person, as well as the manner in which energy is flowing. A healing practitioner can use this information to inform their diagnosis or treatment. For many years, people did not have scientific proof of auras, and so many dismissed them. Today, thanks to the aura camera, proof of auras is beyond simple to obtain. Fortunately for those who already know the value of auras in healing, modern science has long proven that the human electo-magnetic field is exactly what is being viewed in an aura photo.

The aura camera itself is an invention that has totally revolutionized the way aura colors could be used in treatment, because it was then possible for the client themselves to see their aura. Even if you have complete faith that a person is telling you the truth about the color of your aura, actually seeing it yourself is still a much stronger experience for your brain that just being told about them. Beginning with Kirlian photography in the 70s, aura photography has grown into what it has become today, which is a system capable not only of still shots, but interactive video of a person's aura. A very basic explanation of how this works is that a biofeedback sensor collects information about the HEF and then translates that into the actual visual of the aura.


An aura is the three-dimensional energy field that surrounds the bodies of all beings and things. The healthier you are, the further the aura will extend out from your body.

How to read the Aura
Find a place where there isn't any harsh light. Focus on one part of your body, preferably your hand. Relax, concentrate on your hand lines. If you’re relaxed enough, you’ll see a certain color. With time you might be able to see several colors.

Auras can be seen physically, or sensed psychically. One way to see someone's aura is to have the subject stand in front of a white background. If you look at the person for a while you’ll see some sort of wavy lines of energies, and also maybe a couple of aura colors. There is also another exercise. As far as I know, the author of the following exercise is unknown, but I’d appreciate it if you emailed me their name so I could give them credit.

“Stand in front of a mirror at a distance of about half a meter, with a wall of neutral color some distance behind you. Alternatively, get a friend to stand about 1 meter away from you and 2 meters from a neutral wall.
Relax, and breathe deeply and evenly. Focus your eyes on the wall behind the head.

Gently sway your body from side to side (or tell your friend to if looking at someone else). As you stare past the outline of the head, you should be able to see an envelope of light - it's an aura! The room and subject should be illuminated by subdued lighting, but not in darkness or direct sunlight. Do not worry if you cannot see color at this stage, in time you may.”

Common Aura Colors
The following is a list of aura colors that are associated with the person’s conscious and subconscious state. The color spectrum varies with a person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states.
• Red: The color of strength, passion, impulsiveness and will.
• Orange: Color of affection, kindness, and creativity. The muddier shades denote vanity, while golden orange represents self-control. Someone with orange in his/her aura may suffer from kidney troubles.
• Yellow: Mental activity, optimism, perfectionism, responsibility, sometimes shyness.
• Green: The color of sympathy and reliability. The person may be an effective healer. Dark shades of green however indicate one who is jealous or hesitant.
Blue: The color of calm, and spiritual and material attainment. May sometimes represent a tendency to moodiness and depression.
• Indigo/Violet: The colors of the seeker who has inborn psychic and intuitive abilities. They represent an astounding ability in the handling of practical matters. Dark shades may show that the person is often misjudged and misunderstood. May indicate heart or stomach trouble.
• Black: The color of self-protection. The person is good at ‘wearing masks’.
• Pink: A compassionate person who is fond of the arts. Darker shades of pink may point to immaturity and irresponsibility.
• White: Purity and honesty. A color associated with spiritually evolved persons.
• Silver: The person might be pregnant or is going to be soon! However, this is not always so. Seeing this may indicate a person who is allowing great creativity in their life.

Sometimes you experience the interplay of an outside energy field upon your aura.
You can tell this is happening to you in the following circumstances:
• When you are around some people and you feel ‘drained’ and weak.
• When you feel there is someone staring at you intensely.
• When you have an instant liking or disliking for someone you’ve just met.
• When you sense someone’s presence before you saw this person....


Possible Physics of the Human Energy Field as Indicated From High Sense Perception Observations
Barbara Brennen

As a longtime practitioner and teacher of energy healing, Barbara Brennan presented her model of the human energy field (abbreviated as HEF or Aura). Her knowledge of the HEF is not abstract or coming from second hand information. Instead, it comes from many years of practice at entering into an expanded state of awareness in which she can "see" the energy field that surrounds and interpenetrates all things: humans, animals, cells, and even microscopic DNA.

Levels of the Human Energy Field (HEF)

Using slides as a visual aid, Brennan’s presentation enumerated four aspects of the human energy field that she has perceived during many years of practice:

1. The physical body
2. The aura, which has seven levels of structured and unstructured fields, each with seven chakras, or energy vortices, located along the human spine
3. The Hara line, which runs vertically up the spine and inside the auric vertical power current
4. The Core Star, which is the inner Divine within all things

Brennan began by pointing out that many cultures have made references to something that lies beyond and below the human physical body. According to Brennan’s observations, the human aura has at least seven levels, and she has observed many more but kept the discussion to the lower seven. Of these seven levels, every other one is structured (1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th), meaning they have a specific pattern to them. These levels look like standing beams or avenues of light in which particles are flowing. The even numbered levels are unstructured, and Brennan sees in them types of energetic bio-plasma composed of fluid light. The different levels of the fields are like frequency bands that encircle and penetrate the physical body. When she is feeling them, the fields feel like currents of wind or energy. They look like colored streams of bio-plasma of different consistencies, which vary depending on the auric level.

For Brennan, the fields are both "deeper" and "higher" than the physical body. While most scientists try to explain energetic phenomenon, such as acupuncture meridians or the HEF, as derivative processes of the physical body, Brennan, in contrast, sees the physical body as being derivative of the human energy field itself. In short, the energy-body is primary, and the physical-material body is derivative. Take, for example, the physical processes of growth in nature, such as a leaf on a tree. According to Brennan, the leaf grows into an energetic pattern that is already there. We just cannot see the energy-body that the physical leaf is growing into. Every cell and organ inside our physical body is wrapped in layers of light. They flow through all physical structures, even though common human perception cannot see them—at least not yet.

Brennan shared another example that demonstrates this pattern as well. According to her observations of the HEF, an unborn child-soul that wishes to be born into the physical plane of existence will come to her potential mother’s field and establish energetic relational cords to the mother’s heart chakra before birth. If the cord connections cannot be made, the mother won’t get pregnant.

In expanded states of awareness, Brennan can open her consciousness to the 4th level (the astral level), where all types of non-physical imagery start to emerge, such as light beings and hell beings. At the 5th level (the template level), in addition to spiritual beings, Brennan has observed intricate geometric patterns that serve as the energetic and architectural template for all forms of our physical level. At the 6th, 7th levels and beyond, Brennan has observed Spiritual Beings of Light.

The Chakras

The human chakra system has been referred to by ancient Indian religious texts as well as by Western esoteric traditions, such as Jewish Kaballistic teachings and alchemical texts. According to Brennan’s observations, these texts confirm what she herself can see: there are 7 chakras (which look like swirling funnels of energy extending from the spinal column out beyond the physical body) that align themselves vertically up the human spinal cord. The first chakra rests at the base of the spine and the seventh is at the top of the head. The fourth is right in the center of the chest, frequently called the heart chakra, and there are three above it (5,6,7) and three below it (1,2,3). When a person is healthy, their chakras spin clockwise, pull in energy, and are in alignment vertically up and down the spinal cord. Healers work to restructure and balance the chakras and the HEF of people who are sick or emotionally upset. Brennan has frequently used voice toning to remove blockages from unhealthy chakras and the HEF.

The Hara Dimension

Even deeper than the human energy field and the chakras is the Hara line. This is a place of deep calm due to the fact that it is a zero-point energy field, apparently lacking magnetic polarity. According to Brennan, the Hara line is a solid pole of intentionality that runs vertically through the center of the human body connecting us upwardly to the sky and downwardly to the center of the earth. When working with a person’s Hara line, Brennan tries to connect that person’s intentionality with the center of the earth in order to foster a calm and grounded feeling.

According to Brennan, the Hara dimension is associated with human intentionality and our soul’s incarnational task to be accomplished in this body and lifetime. Brennan emphasized that the energy that she sees in the HEF is never separate from a person’s thoughts and feelings. For example, when someone’s mind is feeling calm and positive that will be reflected in their HEF. In fact, everything a person experiences has a correlation in their HEF. Every thought, feeling, sensation, and emotion can be seen in the field. Brennan noted that when she looks at the HEF, she sees much more information than she could ever possibly communicate. The HEF is robust with information and activity. Brennan also pointed out that most healers work with the HEF without the ability to perceive it and many do not understand the functional relationship between the Hara and the HEF. This discrepancy sometimes has lead to confusion amongst those who are trying to understand the energetic basis of healing.

The Core Star

The Hara line is located inside the layers of the HEF and the chakras and on another dimension. The Hara line is the foundation of the HEF and correlates to our intentionality. So what is inside the foundation of the Hara? According to Brennan’s observations, within the Hara lies our inner Divine Core that is our connection to the Eternal Divine. When looking at this dimension, Brennan sees brilliant light just above then navel that is the individuated divine within. It is from here that creativity upwells from our center within, seemingly coming from other dimensions.

Health and Diagnosis of Disease

One of the greatest benefits of Brennan’s ability to see the human energy field is its implication for revolutionizing health care. According to Brennan, common diseases, such as cancer, can be detected before they take on physical form. Picking up on this theme, Marilyn Schlitz noted that CAT scans frequently will miss cancer cells until it is too late. Thus, healers, such as Brennan could be effective in diagnosing illnesses that have not even formed yet physically.

When looking at the HEF of cancer patients, Brennan has seen the adverse effects of chemotherapy upon a person’s field. For example, the normally flowing and healthy bio-plasma of the unstructured levels turns brown and stagnant. Brennan also noted that energy healers can help organ transplants be much more successful by cohering the energy that surrounds the tranplanted organ with the new body.

Of particular relevance for this conference, Brennan believes that the human healing process is rooted in our intentionality that arises in the Hara level. Creative and healing energy upwells from our Core Star deep within us and then filters through the intentions we hold in our Hara level and is then precipitated down through the HEF level as thought, feeling, and will, before descending into the physical body as health or disease. Thus, in Brennan’s system, human intentionality has a direct influence on our ability to heal.

Brennan believes that energy healers can also speed the recovery of common injuries. For example, when working with someone with a sprained ankle, Brennan will re-build the energy lines and help the bio-plasma start to flow again. She has seen this reduce the level of swelling and speed up the healing process to 30 to 45 minutes, rather than two weeks on crutches.

When observing her clients, Brennan has noticed that emotional traumas appear as frozen bio-plasma. Good energy healers help the plasma to flow again. Importantly, Brennan noted that the physical presence of the patient is not necessary to conduct a healing session. The work can be conducted non-locally as well as locally.

Time and Other Dimensions

Brennan believes that the seven levels of the aura are all on the same dimension of space-time. When she enters an expanded state of awareness, her consciousness can travel to other dimensions. She indicated that any of us can take the time to clear our chakras and align our fields and thereby be open enough to experience other dimensions. At levels of the HEF well above the 7th, Brennan experiences higher frequencies and patterns that only seem to be accessible when her consciousness is in a refined state.

After hearing that Brennan can see into the past and future while doing her healing work on her clients, George Leonard asked if the future is determined? Brennan believes the future is filled with probabilities and possibilities but is not determined. Sometimes when she meets spirit guides, they will reveal future events to her. On many occasions, Brennan has seen people’s past lives. The longer most people have been out of the body (after physical death) the higher in frequency they become, as they go through their growth process in higher realms before returning to physical incarnation.

Western Science and the Human Energy Field

Brennan believes there is a continuum between the energies we can measure now with our current instrumentation and the energies we cannot yet measure. One of Brennan’s priorities is to help advance the technological sophistication of our current instrumentation. On this note, she mentioned a book by Albert Davis and Walter Rawles called Magnetism and Its Effects On The Living System (Exposition Press, 1974). These authors have looked at the relationship between the physical body, cells, and electromagnetism. If mainstream science will ever succeed in measuring the HEF, Brennan believes they will discover the first level of the aura, which is most akin to what we call "energy."

On this note, Beverly Rubik mentioned the work of Valerie Hunt, who has been measuring the aura by way of high electromagnetic frequencies around the muscles and claiming it correlates to certain colors that psychics see. Brennan believes those are the colors of the 2nd and 4th level of the HEF.
