Columbus' Journey to a New Way of Life
When Columbus proved the world was round,
most people were not affected in the least in terms of how
they lived their lives. Many people simply didn't know what
he had discovered and none of the ones who knew could understand
the enormous impact that this discovery would have on future
generations. Who could have foreseen space travel or satellite
communication or world trade changes made possible by this
new model of reality?
We've entered a new era in healing and we're
not unlike those people. What has changed in the last 60 years
that warrants such a comparison? In a word, Quantum Physics.
In a nutshell the science behind quantum physics tells us
that for very small systems there is no subjective reality.
Our reality, at this very small level, is determined by how
we choose to look at it, and by the measurements we choose
How will this science and the truths behind
it affect our models of health care? At the technological
level it already has. The computers that drive the modern
machinery of health care like MRI and CAT are based on the
truths of quantum physics.
What we want to focus on is how it affects
our understanding around what is possible and appropriate
for inclusion into the evolving models of wellness. There
is a problem when it comes to considering the application
of quantum physics at the whole body level. According to the
Heisenberg uncertainty principle, no single outcome can be
predicted at the quantum level. For systems of any appreciable
size, however, the probabilities of certain outcomes approach
either 1 or zero, that is to say they will happen or they
won't. This summation to given outcomes is what makes our
health and our world so seemingly real. If the ball is dropped,
it will fall.if the liver is diseased it will fail in predictable
ways. Quantum theory doesn't work appropriately in our daily
There is one important exception. There
is one point in our lives where the quantum scale is relevant,
that single crucial exception to the effect of massive systems
is at the level of the mind. Thought.. that magnificent act,
can literally create something from nothing. At this most
minute level, at the active end of a neuron, at the level
of neurotransmitter, our world is shaped every day in every
way. We definitely form our experience of reality around what
we choose to bring into existence with thought. It is a fact.
To grow healthier using the truths of quantum
physics mandates the use of the mind and nervous system as
a tool to reach that profound end. Having a clear mind and
a healthy nervous system is essential to applying quantum
physics to our lives. There are three basic ways directly
related to insuring a healthy mind and nervous system:
It is important to have a balance of the
physical and energetic body to help in this area. Calm, peaceful
sleep, forgiveness, close, supportive friends, harmony in
family, play, laughter and a creative outlet are ways to achieve
a balance in life.
The tools of prayer, meditation, hypnotherapy,
tai chi and breath work, among others, improve stress reduction
and are methods of living more full lives.
The use of chiropractic and acupuncture
and the cultivation of body energy (Chi) to attain a balanced
energetic body cause you to feel more vibrantly alive and
literally have more energy.
Any good scientific model of better health
embraces and incorporates the evolving truths from all areas
of science. These considerations may not seem like the domain
of today's medicine but the laws of quantum physics tell us
It is a new era in healing. It will be fun
to watch these new truths dawn more fully on the consciousness
of mankind as we, like those in the days of Columbus, move
into our new, healthier, well rounded world.
