The Energy Field
There is an energy field (actually several) around and through the human body. These have been seen by humans for millennium. Think halos around enlightened beings….saints, sages, prophets, Holy ones. Ayurveda Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine are founded on the observation and flow of these subtle energies. We can now measure these fields with various devices. MRI, PET scan, AO Scan, and Squid computers are just a few examples of these field measuring devices.
Physicist Heinrich Rudolph Hertz (1857-1894) was the first to measure energy. Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is known as “The Father of Electricity”. Dr. Royal Rife (1888-1971) was an inventor at John’s Hopkins and Heidelberg Universities. He is considered to be the first to see live bacteria under his own high-powered microscope. He measured and categorized the frequencies of every pathogen known to man.
We believe and observe in The Emergence Process that optimum flow of energy through the human system is essential and primary for a healthy body.
The life work of Dr. M.T. Morter, Jr. (1935-2013), founder of Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique, addressed how the body’s energy field “segments”- becomes more of a positive charge or negative charge when influenced by intense or prolonged a) physical trauma, b) chemical/electrical toxicity and/or c) mental/emotional stress.
Endocrinologist Hans Hugo Bruno Selye’s (1907-1982) book “The Stress of Life” documents the biological reaction to stress and what occurs when a system undergoes continual Sympathetic over stimulation.
Arthur C. Guyton’s (1919-2003) “Textbook of Medical Physiology” documents how the emotions of anger stimulate the sympathetic nervous system to produce biochemical responses in the body, while the emotions of worry can inappropriately stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.
We believe it is the system being “stuck in defense” that leads to exhaustion of one or more body systems. A stuck in defense system expresses lack of ease and even pathology. We find that it is usually more than one factor over a long period of time that creates a perfect storm of exhaustion, which leads to body breakdown and dis-ease.
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, (1935-2017) observed a polarity shift in brain physiology, which he documented as a major factor in the sickness of the body. He also found that emotional trauma, experienced in powerlessness and loneliness, had a major impact on brain/body physiology. He studied over 10,000 case histories and thousands of PET scans.
The Two Minds
To understand The Emergence Process we need to acknowledge that the human brain has two divisions: The Conscious Mind and the Subconscious Mind.
In the conscious mind, we experience education, will, decision making, logic and reason. It is logical, linear and language driven. It is a learning computer. Therefore, it doesn’t know or understand everything. It only has data as to what it experienced through the 5 senses (taste, touch, smell, hear and see) and has no direct control over the body. It can be taught how to indirectly influence the body through the subconscious mind/brain.
The Subconscious mind/brain is what we call the feeling brain, the processor, the integrator of the 5 senses. Sensory input goes into the subconscious brain and motor response feedback goes to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, arteries and veins. All this physiology and function is for one purpose and one purpose only: SURVIVAL- in this moment.
Others before us and Emergence Practitioners have observed that this primal survival mechanism can get jammed (stuck) in Defense Physiology. On a subconscious level we are 24 hours a day, 7days of the week looking for threat. Every system of the body is alert and ready to Get away from something (aversion) or Get/hold onto something (attachment).
The excess (jammed/stuck) stress reaction leads to the exhaustion of multiple body systems, bypassing the parasympathetic system, which effects detoxification, rebuilding and revitalization. We cannot be digesting our food while defending our life.
The over energizing/under energizing of our body fields, acupuncture circuits, chakras (energy centers) leads to body malfunction. We were not designed by our Creator to be in a state of stress 24/7. The book, “Why Zebra’s Don’t Get Ulcers”, by Robert M. Sapolsky, demonstrates this perfectly.
In Emergence, we believe in the presence of Spirit and soul. We believe that, beyond the individual soul, there is a Source (God) as the Creator/Designer of all. Creation and evolution are ongoing in the individual and the cosmos.
The Larger Universal Field
We believe in the interconnectedness of all creation. Look no further than Quantum physics, String Theory, Sacred Geometry, fractals and Fibonacci Sequences. We observe The Law of Attraction (Reaping/Sowing) applies to everyone the same. The totality of all frequencies (conscious & subconscious) creates an energy vibration to what we experience and attract from the larger field.
We can learn to intentionally choose and therefore create more experiences of Peace, Joy, Love, Health, Happiness, Success, Prudence, Courage and Gratitude to vibrate and attract specifically into the field of infinite consciousness. When factors are favorable, the infinite potentiality of that vibrational frequency collapses the wave form into actuality (Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle).
