A Matter of Energy

Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos - the trees, the clouds, everything.
--Thich Nhat Hanh

Life is everywhere. The earth is throbbing with it, it's like music. The plants, the creatures, the ones we see, the ones we don't see, it's like one, big, pulsating symphony.
--Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure,
Mite Makes Right, 1994

Health is a measure of quality of life while on this planet. We are units of matter and energy – body & soul. We are even considered by some as all energy. In quantum physics matter is shown to be coalesced energy. The mystical view is that we are Soul having a body in our control. The movie, What the Bleep Do We Know!?, brings together science and spirituality. Yes, we are energetic or spiritual beings living in the environment of this planet. But let’s consider here the combined unit of matter and energy, since its separation is more a matter of religious issue than the science of health.

We are matter and energy. We function in an environment of space and time. This condition of MEST is by a constantly changing formula. That is we interact with other units of matter and energy (human and non-human alike) coordinated as to proximity. Whether by choice or happenstance we come into contact with other materials and energy fields that affect who we are and how we function. We choose a food. We breathe. We call a depressed daughter. We drive our SUV past a power station. We fly into LAX. Everything we do affects our energy. Our energy affects others. Our energy affects our matter.

Health is a matter of energy. We can improve our health by making better energy selections. All healing modalities actually work, or don’t work, by this method. Even chemical changes in our bodies affect our thinking, our moods, our dreaming, and our stamina. It affects our energy. Rapport with one’s doctor does affect our healing. We may choose another to strengthen the healing connection. If we feel, it will.

Today there are a lot of choices for directing ones own health. Many of them are systems that recognize the role of energy in the healing process. Chinese medicine, Network Chiropractic, homeopathy, gemstone therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, and Therapeutic Touch are just a few of these approaches. The body’s innate intelligence is the real healer. The pattern for perfect health is stored in the DNA. Using that pattern as the template for our lives, our matter/energy units, is the key to lasting health.

Did you know that therapeutic grade essential oils not only have constituents that affect the physiology of cells to boost stamina and energy, as well as supporting the body’s natural defenses, but also have been known to enhance the benefits of other energetic healing systems? Young Living Essential Oils (available through Share Essence Interactive) has the highest quality and largest selection of these oils attainable. Their essential oil blend of Valor for instance, may help the body self-correct its balance and alignment. Some chiropractors are seeing quicker improvements in their patients when it is used prior to an adjustment. Practitioners of Therapeutic Touch, Reiki and acupressure may also benefit using some of the emotional blends, like Release, Grounding, and Believe.

Health choices we make are more than what is at first apparent. The matter of energy starts first with consciousness.
