Albert Einstein showed that matter and energy are interchangeable (e=mc*2) with matter being the densest of states. The same would apply to the physical body relative to more subtle, less dense energies surrounding, and all being of the same consciousness at different levels. The interdependence of these systems would assume that a disruption in one, whether at the physical or subtle level, would synergistically affect the system as a whole.
The chakra system comprises 7 main energy centers aligned vertically throughout the body. Chakra is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel,’ and describes these centers of energy starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Each chakra corresponds to bundles of nerves and major organs as well as psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. This energy extends outward with increasing vibrational frequency and decreasing density.
Ultimately, we interact through quantum physical processes within energetic fields that are comprised of both measurable electromagnetic energy and subtle energy, or qi. For over one hundred years, scientists have shown that cells and tissues generate electrical fields that can be measured on the surface of the skin. These tiny electrical currents result from a charge flow that makes life possible. In Chinese medicine, this would be considered qi.
A concept in neuroscience called ‘plasticity’ refers to your brain’s ability to change. The continued practice of meditation and energy healing allows the brain to access a state of peace more easily. Below are the main frequencies on which your brain operates:
- Delta (0-4 Hz) – deep sleep, renewal, and healing
- Theta (4-7 Hz) – insight, intuition, and awareness
- Alpha (7-13 Hz) – calm, relaxed alertness
- Beta (13-40) – nervousness, irritability, anger
- Gamma (Over 40 Hz) – the rarest of frequencies, regularly measured in monks practiced in the art of meditation.
The brainwave activity of most humans is beta, which is the logical part of our brain dealing with grinding, thinking, and reasoning. In this state, one may feel trapped in thought with anxiety and overthinking. When our brains are in resonance with the alpha state (7-13 Hz), we are in an optimum frame of mind. The frequency of 7.83 Hz is associated with meditative, creative states. Shamans, healers, and even the hands of qi gong practitioners have been recorded at this frequency during sessions demonstrating how universal electromagnetic energy is truly channeled.
Sound therapy works by using different frequencies to restore balance to the mind, body, and spirit. Singing bowls and tuning forks are used for deep relaxation, to improve circulation, release tension, and eliminate toxins from the body. After sound therapy, emotions are calm and the mind is clear.
Scientific studies have confirmed the different harmonic frequencies of an individual’s heartbeat produce coupled oscillations, or standing waves, in various internal organs that relate to the 12 primary meridians in Chinese medicine. The function of these frequencies is to help blood enter the specific organs, improving circulation and cell regeneration. These harmonic frequencies are in range when the body is in optimal health, and are altered by stress and disease. These frequency pathways have shown to be modulated through energy medicine such as acupuncture.
