What are Channeling, Bioenergy, and Healing?
Channeling is a unique tool all of us possess. It enables us to receive accurate, reliable information at any given time in our lives. The nature of channeling is making contact with ‘god’, ‘energy’, ‘essence’, ‘spiritual guides’ or anything else we believe in, as opposed to making contact with the physical. (This is my definition based on my own personal knowledge and experience).
Today, there is still no scientific explanation as to the nature of the information received through channeling. Even modern physics has tried to understand the nature of matter and anti-matter, i.e. that which is not quite matter yet is visible, for example, electromagnetic waves. These behave like massless particles and in scientific experiments have been seen in several places at once (Ben-Dov, 1996). Experiments such as these can give us some idea about the information source, channeling. Since we are dealing with energies, senses, emotions and feelings that are not related to material, it can be concluded that the mystical sources of knowledge (channeling) are found everywhere. It is therefore not important who we make contact with or who ‘sends’ us this information; what is important is the accuracy of the information and the person receiving it.
Bioenergy (or more accurately, biorgonomy)
Biorgonomy is a diagnostic and treatment method developed by Rafi Rosen. At its core lies the idea that everything in existence possesses energy or energetic fields (orgones). These fields are not dependent upon matter or time and are found everywhere. A biorgonomic diagnosis allows the cosmic or personal energy flow of people to be felt. Rafi Rosen developed a diagnostic method whereby the energy we are examining is sensed by the eyelids. We ‘call’ the energy to come to our hands, and then examine it. Biorgonomy helps us to examine the state of the energy inside a person, its being, whether it is growing or is still, and whether the person has an excess or a lack of energy. A biorgonomic diagnosis can provide the answers to almost any question. The organs of the body, cells, tissue, blood pressure, cancer growth, illness, and so on can be checked as well as emotional state, for example trauma and anxieties etc. Everything we undergo in life leaves a mark on our bodies. For instance, trauma leaves an area of weak energy on the body which can be sensed. When a person does something that feels good, his energetic fields become stronger and when he does something that feels bad or when he’s afraid, his energetic fields become weaker (Rosen, 1989).
Healing means directing energy, using relaxation or any other therapy technique the patient finds suitable. The choice is in his hands. Healing energy can strengthen specific areas of the body or all of it. Strengthening energy (healing) can give a push to the body to heal itself as it releases the flow of energy to the body to cure illness, relieve physical pain, and ease mental hardship and so on. During the healing process, it is possible to direct energy to strengthen other people if they are interested or to send healing out to the world. Directing healing energy may be done through words, touch, music, and dance or through many other options depending on our imagination and experience.
What is holistic mental therapy?
Holistic complementary medicine views the soul as a part of the body that is impossible to examine or measure separately from the whole. A complete human being is the sum total of his parts that are connected together from the time of his creation until his death.
When I examine a person’s ‘soul’, I must remember that I am dealing with the specific energy or power connected to the body which influences and is influenced by every event in his life. From this, I have learnt that every one of life’s events has a strong impact on the body, soul, and spirit which constitute a person’s whole that is in a constant state of flux.
One of the ways to understand the concept of ‘the soul’ or ‘the connection between the body and soul’ is to view a person as a totality of emotions, feelings, energy, and a body then to try and examine how certain feelings and emotions are expressed within this totality. For example, if I feel sadness, what is its root? Where is it expressed in the body, and can I get in touch with it in order to examine its source? How can I assist it? What is it trying to tell me?
As another example we can use stomach ache. We would try and talk with the stomach area to find out what it is trying to tell us. Listening to the area that hurts can provide answers to the source of the pain: What caused the pain? How can we treat it etc.? In actual fact, listening prepares the gateway for healing. We are the body; we do not distinguish between the body parts. On the contrary, we create a therapeutic conversation which can reveal a great deal about ourselves and how we can treat ourselves. We discover that there is no single soul in any one place, rather there is a complex of feelings throughout our sensory organs creating one perfect totality which is constantly changing, every moment of our lives. It is therefore this that provides the possibility for change and recovery.
From my experience as a complementary medicine therapist, tools such as channeling, biorgonomy, and healing help me tremendously in locating the source of the problem in the body and ‘talking’ with it. Sometimes this conversation alone – the information I read to the person or the silent channeling, and the conversation about every spoken or written detail – is enough to produce great relief which strengthens the person’s overall energy. Sometimes, this is the beginning of a lengthier process in which the sources of the problem are investigated: past cycles or dimensions, childhood, adolescence, family etc. At each stage, using the diagnostic methods above, we can check which genetic effects or event created the ‘energy block’ (pain, distress, or fear), reach the source of the problem, and treat it using appropriate therapeutic methods, as well as medical intervention to administer suitable medicines when and where needed.
It should be remembered that this treatment requires a lot of sensitivity to oneself and the ability to cope with the weight of emotions or feelings that surface during therapy. It does not suit all people at all stages of life since there are times when it is difficult to cope with certain feelings and emotions. Consequently, the therapist must diagnose this and only use this method when he is certain the patient can be helped without any ill effects.
Example of a Treatment Case
Orit (not her real name) is 60 years old and divorced with three grown up children. She called me and asked to come for treatment. She complained of pains all over her body and feared she was suffering from fibromyalgia. She told me she was being treated with painkillers. When I met Orit, I noticed she was under a lot of stress. She confirmed this and told me she had the feeling that she should be helping everyone else all the time, especially her daughter, and that she had no time to herself. Orit explained that she felt most of her pain in the shoulders which was bothered her tremendously. The medication she was taking did not really help and she did not want to take medication all the time since it made her feel a bit drowsy.
I tried to diagnose her through biorgonomy and noticed straight away that all of her body parts were very tense, especially the shoulders. Such weak energy was an indicator that Orit obviously had gone through very traumatic events which ’caused her’ to become very weak.
Since it seemed obvious the problem was psychological with physical effects, I suggested an exercise in deep relaxation and Orit accepted the idea. I asked her to sit in a chair and not to do anything at all. Then I asked her to take deep breaths and to let me or the world help her. I told her she need not do a single thing except sit and let the world reach out to her (this is a relaxation exercise I developed which is the most powerful because none of us are taught to ‘do nothing’ – to just sit or lie down and let the world take care of us; it can therefore come as quite a shock when someone asks us to do this!)
When Orit began to relax and to see that nothing bad was happening to her, she allowed herself to enter the process and was amazed at what happened: suddenly the strong pains in the right shoulder were transferred to the left shoulder, then a few seconds later, they disappeared. Orit was very surprised. I asked her to stay seated so we could try and get rid of all the pains in her body.
During the process, I reminded her from time to time not to do anything, just to let us, the powers in the world, heal and strengthen her. A few minutes later, all of Orit’s pain miraculously disappeared. At the end of the procedure, Orit got up and excitedly said: “How did this happen? Will this continue at home?” I explained to her that she carries the weight of the world on her shoulders, and the moment she does something for herself too, she will feel better and that the majority of the pain should go away. I gave Orit several suggestions on what to do at home before she left.
A few days later, Orit called me and said that most of the pain had disappeared and that she was trying to go out more, spend time with friends, and to think more about herself.
Of course, Orit’s case is an exceptional one with regard to the direct connection between the mental stress derived from certain behaviours, thoughts and physical pain and their disappearance during the process of deep relaxation. In most cases, pain can be alleviated from a mental source and even cured, but this demands the patient’s cooperation during and after treatment in order to strengthen the patient and reduce mental stress.
One of the most creative and efficient ways to treat mental health problems is by using complementary medicine to make direct contact, using appropriate diagnostic and treatment methods, with the ‘parts’ of the patient’s being (physical, mental, spiritual). The source of the problem is then reached, allowing it to be released and the way paved for healing. It is of vital importance to make a thorough diagnosis and examination of the patient’s condition to see whether or not he can stand up to this method of treatment which touches the depths of a person’s emotions and feelings.
