Concepts of Soul Mind Body Medicine
In this chapter, I explain the basics of Soul Mind Body Medicine, including its key theories, its diagnostic approach, and the fundamentals of healing. After reading this chapter, you will understand the key causes of sickness and how to heal from it. The rest of the book will give you a full toolbox of Soul Mind Body Medicine healing methods, including specific applications for many illnesses and guidelines for preventive maintenance.
Before exploring the basic theories of Soul Mind Body Medicine, let's first take a look at some of the fundamental concepts on which the theories rest, starting with the basis of the soul's healing power, and then the relationship between physical life and spiritual life.
The body and its immune system possess great healing potential. When you cut your finger, the cut will heal by itself. When you catch a cold, you usually recover in a few days, even without any intervention. Even if you break a bone, the fracture will heal by itself. Soul Mind Body Medicine works with the body's inherent healing ability, expanding and deepening the potential of your body itself by focusing on the soul as the master healer.
The soul has incredible healing power. But the soul of your body isn't the only soul whose power you can tap in to. Every bodily system has a soul, as does every organ, every cell, and every strand of DNA and RNA.
One of the main treatments in Western medicine is using drugs to adjust the functions of the systems, organs, and cells for healing. Traditional Chinese medicine uses herbs, acupuncture, and tui na (Chinese massage) to adjust and heal. Soul Mind Body Medicine adds the power of the soul as a way to adjust and heal the systems, organs, and cells. You only need to know how to connect with the power of your many "inner" souls.
In addition to the inner souls of your body, there are an infinite number of "outer" souls. Animals, oceans, mountains, trees, flowers, buildings, Mother Earth, other planets, the sun, the moon, stars, and galaxies — all have souls. In fact, everything has a soul. All these outer souls have incredible healing power also, and you will learn to use their power to heal soul, mind, and body.
Billions of people believe in the spiritual world. This faith may be expressed through a religion or other belief system. I believe in the Divine (the Creator or the Source) and that, as the creator of the universe, the Divine embraces all religions and belief systems. Buddhas, saints, healing angels, and enlightened masters are all part of the Divine. They all have incredible soul healing power, so they are another incredible healing resource from the universe. We can ask these "outer" souls to heal our soul, mind, and body. Prayer, practiced by many whether or not in the context of a religion, is an application of Soul Power and soul healing. This book will explain the essence of prayer and why it works. It will also give you practical guidance on how to pray most effectively. With the appropriate wisdom and knowledge, you can learn to increase the power of prayer and receive healing miracles from the Divine.
PHYSICAL LIFE AND SPIRITUAL LIFE
The universe can be divided into yin and yang. The yang universe is the physical world we live in. The yin universe is the spiritual world, which comprises all the souls in the universe. Yin and yang are separate, yet connected.
As human beings, we live in the physical world. We conduct our lives and affairs according to the laws of this physical world. Yet whether or not we consciously know or understand it, our souls must follow the laws of the spiritual world. So our physical life is inseparable from our spiritual life, and vice versa. This is becoming increasingly evident as we witness more and more people searching, consciously or subconsciously, for soul wisdom to awaken them and help fulfill their spiritual journeys.
Everyone and everything has a physical life and a spiritual life. A soul or spirit in the universe has a spiritual existence; it has a spiritual life. When a soul returns as a human being, it then has a physical life. Similarly, the sun has both a physical life and a spiritual life. The moon, the planets, and the stars all have their own physical and spiritual lives. Physical life and spiritual life are distinct yet united. They serve each other. Most people are intent on fulfilling their physical lives first. In contrast, Soul Mind Body Medicine teaches you to fulfill your spiritual journey first. You will then receive great benefits for fulfilling your physical life.
Heal the soul first; then healing of the mind and body will follow.
Fulfill the soul first; then fulfillment of the mind and body will follow.
The key theories of Soul Mind Body Medicine are simple, elegant, and easily understood, yet profound in their wisdom and application. They will give you a clear picture of why people get sick and how they can heal. These theories provide the foundation for the Soul Mind Body Medicine methods for self-healing, healing of others, group healing, and remote healing. Once you learn these methods, you will truly understand the message of Soul Mind Body Medicine:
I have the power to heal myself.
You have the power to heal yourself.
Together we have the power to heal the world.
Once you use the methods of Soul Mind Body Medicine, you will live this message. Let us now explore its underlying theories.
A body consists of many systems, such as the nervous system, the circulatory system, the digestive system, and the immune system. Each system in turn consists of many organs. For example, the digestive system includes the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, and pancreas. Each organ in turn consists of many cells. Scientists estimate that a brain consists of about 15 billion cells. Each cell is made up of various units such as a nucleus, mitochondria, Golgi apparati, and other organelles. The nucleus includes DNA and RNA. Each cell unit has its specific functions and role. The key points of Cell Theory are as follows:
A cell is the smallest functioning unit of the body.
Cells constantly vibrate, expanding and contracting.
This vibration creates an energy field around each cell.
Western medicine identifies many causes of illness, including bacteria, viruses, stress, trauma, pollution, and genetic factors. All these factors affect cellular vibration.
Traditional Chinese medicine identifies many causes of illness, including natural factors such as wind, cold, summer heat, dampness, dryness, and fire; emotional factors such as anger, overexcitement, worry, sadness, and fear; and accidental factors such as falls, snakebites, and injuries. All these factors affect cellular vibration.
Any cause of illness identified by any healing modality affects cellular vibration. When cellular vibration is affected by any factor posited as a cause of illness, two things can happen: 1) The cells become overactive, radiating lots of energy and increasing the density of the energy around the cells. This energy cannot flow quickly enough through the meridians — the energy pathways, according to traditional Chinese medicine — to other parts of the body, resulting in an energy blockage. 2) The cells become underactive, radiating little energy. This results in an insufficiency of energy around the cells.
An overaccumulation of energy or, simply, "too much energy" is the root cause of about 85 to 90 percent of all unhealthy conditions. The sicknesses due to "too much energy" include pain, inflammations, cysts, tumors, cancer, and AIDS, as well as emotional imbalances such as anger, depression, anxiety, worry, grief, and fear.
"Not enough energy" is the root cause of about 10 to 15 percent of sicknesses, including chronic fatigue syndrome and degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease.
For sicknesses due to "too much energy," the healing solution is to reduce the energy density around the cells. Soul Mind Body Medicine will give you practical tools to dissipate and move excess energy around the cells.
For sicknesses due to "not enough energy," the healing solution is to increase the energy density around the cells. Soul Mind Body Medicine will also give you practical tools to increase insufficient energy around the cells.
In one page, the Cell Theory of Soul Mind Body Medicine explains the causes of illness and the nature of healing. Essentially, the rest of this book will give you specific tools and techniques to accomplish healing, both for yourself and others. I will also take you much deeper, into the spiritual aspects of illness and healing, into the soul of Soul Mind Body Medicine.
As explained above, a cell constantly vibrates. The energy radiating from the cell's vibration forms a field around the cell. Every cell has its own energy field. Similarly, every organ has its own energy field. The body as a whole has its own energy field, which many people understand as the aura of the body.
According to Soul Mind Body Medicine, the energy fields of all the organs in the body radiate to and influence one another. Illness can also result from imbalances in the energy fields around organs. Just as cells can be over- or underactive, so too can organs. The ultimate healing solution for all illness is to balance the energy fields around every organ and every cell, and to bring all fields into relative balance with each other. To summarize:
For sicknesses due to "too much energy," the healing solution is to dissipate the density of the fields and reduce the pressure around the organs and cells.
For sicknesses due to "not enough energy," the healing solution is to increase the density and increase the pressure of the fields around the organs and cells.
There are two kinds of space in the human body. One is the smaller space, the space between the cells. The other is the bigger space, the space between the organs. Eighty-five to 90 percent of sicknesses are due to having too much energy in the space. Ten to 15 percent of sicknesses are due to not having enough energy in the space.
Energy radiates out from cellular vibration. The collision of these energies happens in the space, both the smaller and the bigger space. Some energies will join together to increase the original energy. Some will join to create new kinds of energy. All these kinds of energy must flow inside the smaller and bigger space. This is very important. Remember that cleaning the energy in the space and promoting energy flow in the space are vital to healing. This book will give you practical tools to reduce or increase the energy density in the space to balance and heal.
Matter Energy Message Theory
A cell consists of a membrane, cytoplasm, and a nucleus. It contains liquid, proteins, cell units, DNA, and RNA. Everything inside the cell is matter.
When a constantly vibrating cell contracts, matter inside the cell transforms to energy outside the cell, in the space around the cell. When a cell expands, energy outside the cell transforms to matter inside the cell. Under normal conditions, this transformation between matter inside the cell and energy outside the cell is in relative balance. If this balance is lost, however, sickness can occur. In fact, any sickness can be explained as an imbalance in the transformation between matter inside the cell and energy outside the cell. The healing solution is to balance this transformation. Soul Mind Body Medicine gives you practical tools to do this, many of which are based on the Matter Energy Message Theory, which states:
Message is soul or spirit.
Matter and energy are carriers of message.
Message can directly affect the transformation between matter inside the cell and energy outside the cell.
Message can affect the transformation between matter and energy because it connects with, directs, and balances both matter and energy. A prayer is a message. Therefore, prayer can affect the transformation between matter and energy, which means that prayer can heal. This wisdom clearly explains how and why prayer works. It really is that simple. A great deal of scientific research, not to mention anecdotal evidence, has demonstrated that prayer works, but scientists haven't been able to explain clearly how. Matter Energy Message Theory explains how prayer works because it makes it clear that message works at the cellular level and at the DNA and RNA level, directly affecting both the matter inside the cells and the energy outside the cells. Message can balance the transformation between matter inside the cells and energy outside the cells.
This wisdom reveals the essence of how spiritual healing can work for the physical body, emotional body, and mental body. The Matter Energy Message Theory can explain any cause of illness from the perspective of all kinds of medicine. It is a universal law, representing the essence of soul healing. The most powerful methods of Soul Mind Body Medicine are applications of this theory.
Most other healing modalities focus on matter, as Western medicine does, or on energy. Many healing modalities take it one step further, by connecting the mind and the body. Even Western medicine now acknowledges, studies, and uses the power of the mind-body connection in healing. However, very rarely does any healing modality pay sufficient attention to the soul.
The soul's power is profound. Very rarely does healing really explain and use the soul-energy-matter connection, which is another way to express the matter-energy-message connection. Only fairly recently in this modern world, with its high stress and its materialistic culture, have soul issues begun to earn greater attention. But people still do not have much soul wisdom, despite their growing desire, even yearning, for it. In this book I offer some of the deepest and simplest techniques of Soul Power, not only for healing, but for every aspect of your life. The simplest secrets are the best secrets. Keep that wisdom in mind as I share them with you throughout this book.
Some Tips for Reading
Before moving on to the remaining key theories of Soul Mind Body Medicine, let me share some of simplest and best secrets that you can apply as you read this book. In fact, these are simple but profound tips for reading any book. When you read, sit down straight. Put the tip of your tongue close to, but not touching, the roof of your mouth. Contract your anus a little, and tuck in your lower abdomen. Maintain this position while you read. Why? This is the greatest meditation for boosting energy, healing, and rejuvenation.
Every gem of wisdom and knowledge, every practice, every sentence of this book is a message. These messages have immeasurable healing and blessing power to balance the matter inside cells and the energy outside cells. When you maintain this reading position, your cells will be in a state of inner peace, awareness, and relaxation. Whatever part of this book you are reading, your cells will be open to receive the healing and blessings simultaneously. Read slowly. Comprehend and digest and absorb well. From now on, use this reading technique. Every word has a soul. Every sentence has a soul. A soul carries love, light, healing, blessing, and service. This reading secret can dramatically transform every aspect of your life.
Conservation of Energy
Another key theory of Soul Mind Body Medicine is the Law of the Conservation of Energy. This law of physics states that energy can never be lost; it can only transform from one form to another. Energy can transform to matter, and matter can transform to energy, but energy can never disappear.
Consider the clouds in the sky. The water from the oceans (di chi, or Earth energy) transforms to water vapor, which is one kind of energy. As the water vapor rises, it becomes clouds (tian chi, or Heaven energy). Then, the energy from the heavens descends in the form of rain, another kind of energy. Although these are all different forms of energy, the energy is always conserved.
A stone erodes naturally due to wind and rain. The stone becomes smaller and smaller. If a stone is struck at the same point for hundreds of years by dripping water, a hole will form in the stone and, eventually, through the stone. The part of the stone that has eroded away to leave a hole is the part that has turned to another form of energy in the universe. Similarly, when a human being dies and is buried, the energy is absorbed by Mother Earth and then transforms into other forms of energy. Soul Mind Body Medicine will give you practical techniques for transforming energy to heal.
