“Healing is different from curing. Curing is the business of medicine & it involves eliminating symptoms; while healing is the crafting of a healthy lifestyle by eliminating the cause of suffering and disease & then creating a meaningful destiny. Ours is the practice of healing. Healing attends to the Soul and the Spirit”
Modalities such as Reiki, Sound Healing, Crystal Therapy, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Meditation, Reflexology, and Acupressure are just a few of the practices that fall within the realms, of holistic therapy. Although they differ, they share the same fundamental principle, in that, by creating a multi-layered dialogue, they seek to aid healing.
As the definitions suggest, the therapies, rather than focusing on individual symptoms; take into account the many areas, that make up the whole.
Holistic = Relates to parts of something that are intimately interconnected to the whole (Holistic = Medical capacity = The process rather than focusing on the symptoms of a disease, takes into account the mental and social factors.) Therapy = Treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder.
Based on this assumption, most of what we do, say, and feel could be thought of as a reflection. Everything from the food we eat to the exercise we take, to the people we meet; all form connections in some way. With this in mind, if we’re looking to promote good health & aid healing, it is obviously essential, to take the wider picture into account.
In creating a reciprocal conversation the processes allow for a greater degree of synergy to take place. A good example of this can be seen in the way that the therapies are able to communicate with not just the physical, but the emotional and psychological realms too. In creating an all-encompassing series of networks, the processes used within holistic therapy have the ability to delve into a series of different realms. With the premise of not only dispersing the disparities within; but to also connect with the underlying aspect; or root cause.
In being able to address the body holistically, the procedures used within the techniques, are often able to transcend from the every day, into something far beyond. The ability to open up and forge these connections, however is entirely based on the individual. The body & mind must feel comfortable and ready to allow these changes to happen. Most holistic therapies tap into the process called life energy. This universal embodiment allows for an internal and external dialogue to take place, not just within the body, but in the areas that surround us too. Life energy could also be thought of as “flow”. The theory behind life energy goes back many thousands of years and is still used today, within a wide range of aspects.
There has been a lot of scientific research done over the years to further substantiate the phenomenon that is life force energy. The realms of Quantum physics or Quantum entanglement explain more about the science behind it, in particular.
The elements of “flow” can be found in many forms. Such as, in the practice of Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Martial Arts, Qigong to name but a few. It is also found, of course, within the various holistic therapies previously mentioned, such as Acupuncture, Acupressure, Sound Healing, Crystal Therapy & Reiki, etc. Lifeforce energy when thought of in terms of the body, is said to connect within and without. It forms the auric field as well as permeating within the meridians, chakras & organ systems. When it is able to flow correctly, the body is more effective and able to accommodate the changes (or imbalances) that may occur. When there is a good level of flow, the body is able to more easily reach the levels of homeostasis (balance). Blockages, stagnant energies, as well as manifestations of stress, etc, are more likely to form when the body is at dis-ease. The formation of blocked “chi” or elements pertaining to the blockages of flow are mentioned in the film e-motion. The film documents how the effects, can surface in a multitude of ways; and can even perpetrate within the form of disease.
“Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.”ECKHART TOLLE
In forging reciprocal connections, the techniques used within the varying holistic therapies, have the potential to break down or clear these imbalances, so that natural healing can occur. Once the “flow” is re-aligned, the way in which the processes develops becomes less about the symptoms & more about a personal journey. Regardless of the technique used, the desired outcome, the conclusions, and the manner in which it is orchestrated will fully depend on the individual. Which of course is all very holistic, in a roundabout way !
