Star Wars movies have fascinated more than a generation of viewers over the past 30 years, illustrating a fictional universe that mixes philosophy, religion, and futuristic technology in a world where many creatures – half human, half reptile, or humanoid – live. “May the force be with you” has since imprinted the collective mind and leaves with us a hope that the ‘dark side’ can be conquered by the power of the good. Amazingly, what also captured our imagination was to witness that there could be a force within, taught by Yoda, the one who seemed most vulnerable, which could be learned about and mastered.
Quantum medicine is, in some ways, the expression of a similar philosophy, one that conveys that the power of healing is within and that it can be understood through quantum physics and mastered by healers, practitioners, and doctors. The perception of medicine is shifted from a linear materialistic model to a model of full potentiality. In this new model, the client/patient cannot be caught in the fatalistic reality of a diagnosis because in this new vision of reality, there is always the possibility of the impossible, as described in instances of spontaneous healing.
The dark side of medicine today is inherent as a consequence when the human being is perceived as a mechanistic model, where one’s genes are thought to determine everything. The dark side of medicine is the denial of healing alternatives through models of subtle energy. The dark side is to believe in a fatal diagnosis or your genes as a determining factor in the equation of healing, rather than considering the full potentiality that exists within each human being.
