What exactly is consciousness and how does it relate to medicine? Well, consciousness has numerous facets such as how we perceive our world, our thoughts, being self-aware, our intentions and more.
“Looking for consciousness in the brain is like looking in the radio for the announcer.” – Nasseim Haramein, director of research for the Resonance Project
Pro-consciousness medicine is simply the merging of quantum physics with energy healing modalities to heal the whole body by realizing and utilizing the power of consciousness. The challenge for consciousness-based medicine is to integrate the notion of personal growth, where the individual shifts from functioning in an ego self-centered mode to a more universal self-mode. This is where a health practitioner that uses Integrative Medicine can help, by facilitating the transcendence of the ego-character to allow for the emergence of the quantum self in the individual they are treating which ultimately leads to improved health and overall well-being in the person.
Throughout the world, people and communities are awakening to the idea that Western and modern medicine are lacking in results if not outright detrimental to our bodies and that individuals can take healing into their own hands. The right to heal ourselves has been consigned to doctors or health care providers for too long, but now people are realizing the power of consciousness and natural medicine to promote healing.
The past thirty years have been an exciting time in Pro-Consciousness Medicine. Scientists, doctors, healers, and communities are exploring this amazing new dimension of the quantum-consciousness connection and integrating it with medicine to produce amazing results! We are finding out more and more fascinating things about consciousness’ effect on our bodies via Quantum Biology and also our mental well-being through the understanding of Quantum Psychology.
This new awareness has been translated into the booming Health and Wellness industry which mostly focuses on alternative and natural approaches to health. Think about how many fitness centers or yoga classes are available in your community now, compared to only 10 years ago? Health coaches, nutritional consultants and energy healers have sprung up all over the world and have created a new industry by addressing the growing need to treat and prevent illness in the body naturally.
The art of healing is no longer just in the hands of medical doctors, but in a growing field of holistic health practitioners of natural and integrative medicine.
Why is the understanding of quantum physics so important to this emerging movement of consciousness-based medicine?
Quantum physics reveals to us that consciousness effects not only the mind but matter itself, meaning we are indeed the masters of our own reality!
“A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.” – R.C. Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University , “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005) (source)
The implications of realizing that we can choose to facilitate our own healing is no longer a far-fetched idea from mystics, but has been proven by science! Recent research in neuroscience has demonstrated that we can shape our reality according to our thinking, and from the point of view of Quantum Biology, we are no longer victims of the determinism of our genes. That means that your genetics do not rule your fate! You can choose to ‘reprogram’ your genes and prevent or heal disease in the body.
This is incredible news for those of us dealing with chronic and debilitating illness and disease. This knowledge gives us back the power over our lives and brings the hope of health and vitality within our grasp.
The power of meditation to promote healing.
Science has documented that when we practice daily meditation and visualization that we enhance our inner ability to change ourselves at the quantum level. Meditation opens the door to a new level of health and vitality, giving us higher functioning of our physiology through the resulting brain wave states and the release of endorphins.
A five year study conducted by Harvard scientists revealed that meditation affects DNA and brain activity. According to John Denninger, a psychiatrist at Harvard Medical School who was leading the study,
There is a true biological effect. The kinds of things that happen when you meditate do have effects throughout the body, not just in the brain.
His research concluded that these mind and body techniques could have such power to switch on and off genes linked to stress and immune function. Simply put, meditation alters our physiology in many positive ways, which in turns facilitates healing and enhanced mental well-being.
