According to Western medical professionals, the mind and the body are separate, and they should be treated separately. Doctors learn how to treat one or the other. The split between the mind and body is not a scientific fact nor does nature recognize such a split. But Western medical professionals continue to treat people using archaic procedures, even though quantum physics says humans and all living things are forms of energy.
The fact that humans are pure energy is a fact Eastern medicine embraces. All humans and living things have an energy field or aura surrounding the body, and that has always been the basis for Eastern healing for centuries. Western medicine treats the physical body, and Eastern medicine treats an energy-field dysfunction. If there is an energy field dysfunction in what Eastern medicine calls the subtle body, Eastern healers help the body heal itself by finding the source of the energy dysfunction.
If Western medicine would bring the split between the body and the mind together like Eastern professionals do, the cost of healthcare would radically change. Physicist and author, Barbara Ann Brennan work is a good example of how Eastern medicine’s spiritual healing process works. Her first book Hands of Light: A Guide to Healing Through the Human Energy Field is a classic.
In that book, Brennan has drawings of the energy field, and she explains how the energy field works. She also explains how it impacts personal wellness as well as how it impacts other people. The human energy field is actually a seven-layer field, and there are different frequencies and different kinds of energy in each layer. Each layer performs a different function.
What Dr. Brennan and other doctors like her are doing is expanding the Eastern concept of healing. That concept has been around for thousands of years. Brennan is just giving people in the West the opportunity to understand the relationship between the mind and body better.
