History of Energy Healing

Brenan Healing Science™ with Anne-Chantal Misson

With Einstein and the discovery of quantum physics, the scientific view of reality supports the idea that we are composed of energy fields and, in fact, goes far beyond that into realms that we are just beginning to experience: a holographic view of the universe. In this universe, all things are interconnected, corresponding to a holistic experience of reality. Moreover, modern technology has developed equipment and techniques to measure the electromagnetic field emanating from the physical body.

With Einstein and the discoveries of quantum physicsThe insight that the human body is composed of layers of energy is not at all new. Many traditions speak about it and healing methods have been practiced for thousands of years throughout the world. Some examples:

    • Ancient Indian spiritual tradition, over 5,000 years old, speaks of a universal energy called Prana. The universal energy is seen as the basic constituent and source of all life. Prana, the breath of life, moves through all forms and gives them life.
    • The Chinese, in the 3rd millennium B.C., posited the existence of a vital energy called Ch’i. All matter is composed of and pervaded by this universal energy composed of 2 polar forces: yin and yang. When the yin and the yang are balanced, the living system exhibits physical health. The ancient art of acupuncture focuses on balancing the yin and yang.
    • More recently, Dr. Wilhelm Reich became interested in universal energy that he named “orgone“. He studied the relationship between disturbances of orgone flow in the human body and physical and psychological illnesses. He discovered that by releasing energy blocks, he could clear negative mental and emotional states.
    • Dr. John and Eva Pierrakos developed Core Energetics, which is a unified process of inner healing that concentrates on working through the defenses of the ego and personality to unblock energies of the body. It seeks to balance all the bodies (physical, etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual) to create a harmonious healing of the whole person.

History of Energy Healing - Histoire de l'EnergétiqueSometimes called Aura or Human Energy Field, the Human Energy-Consciousness System can be described as a luminous body that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical body and emits its own characteristic radiation. This energy field is very detailed and intricate, the qualities of which directly relate to our state of health on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. It is the subtle aspect and extension of our physical body that holds our feelings, thoughts, reactions, attitudes, relationship patterns, belief systems, etc. All of us are always sensing and responding to one another and our environment through this field.

The Human Energy-Consciousness Field is intimately related to our health. Our physical body develops from this energy field. Therefore, any weakness, blocks or imbalances in this energy field can affect the health of our physical body. Chronically held blocks can be released through subtle energy work before it affects our physical body.

To learn more about the History of Energy Healing and about Human Energy-Consciousness System, I recommend Barbara Brennan’s book “Hands of Light”.
