Energy Medicine
will transform health care in the 21st century
by Donna Eden

Teaching classes in Energy Medicine throughout the U.S., England, and Australia these past few years, I have been watching the paradigm shift in the way individuals understand health and how they keep themselves healthy. People are becoming confident and determined that they can learn techniques that truly empower them in relationship to their medical care, and they are hungry for knowledge about the energetic dimension of the physical body.

Advancing knowledge about how all things physical are patterned around energetic forms is the key to Energy Medicine. Any conceivable health problem can be helped if not overcome by intelligently shifting the energies in the body that are maintaining that condition! That is the essential promise of Energy Medicine. And in the process, you become more consciously, intimately, even joyfully involved in the deepest workings of your physical vehicle.

The epidemic of stress and immune-related disorders-from chronic fatigue to cancer is the consequence of bodies trying to adapt in a world for which they were never designed. The amount of information we must process every day, the speed of events, the immediate impact of circumstances half a world away, the inability of tradition to provide useful guidance, the crush of social stresses, the erosion of resources for natural foods, clean air, and open space, the jamming of every band of the electromagnetic spectrum-all require adaptations that evolution never anticipated. If you are to thrive in the 21st Century, you are challenged to re-tool, in particular, your body's way of managing its energies.

And this requires you to enter a new paradigm, a world-view that recognizes how the body's instincts can be reprogrammed in ways that until recently were the exclusive domain of natural selection and physical evolution. It has become possible to create favorable changes in the body's innate responses to the stresses and challenges of the modern world. Decisive shifts can be initiated in the body's ways of meeting and metabolizing food, stress, speed, transition, electromagnetic fields, even pollution. By becoming knowledgeable about your body as an energy system, and learning how to unblock, move, sedate, and enhance the subtle energies that are the infrastructure of your physical body, you become a master rather than victim of your physical destiny.

Early in my career, licensed as a massage therapist, I would see and feel, in my clients, patterns of energy that told me about their physical problems. I will recount one of the first cases, from over two decades ago, that showed me the power of working with a person's energies. A woman with ovarian cancer came for a session with the hope that I could help relax her body and prepare it for a surgery that was scheduled in five days. She had been told to "get her affairs in order" as her immune system was so weak that her chances of surviving the surgery were limited. Metastases was also suspected.

From looking at her energy, I was certain the cancer had not metastasized. While her energy was dim and collapsed close to her body, the only place that looked like cancer to me was in her left ovary. In addition, the texture and vibration and appearance of the energy coming up through her ovary was responsive to my work with her. I could see and feel it shift, and by the end of the session, the pain that had been with her for weeks was gone.

I told her that her body was so responsive to what I had done that I wondered about her plan to have surgery. I was concerned that her immune system was indeed too weak, and I was confident that by working with her energy, not only would her immune system be strengthened, the tumor's growth could be reversed. While I made my statements with the strong disclaimers required to avoid immediate arrest for practicing medicine without a license, she responded to the implication that she cancel the surgery with horror. I suggested she at least delay the operation for two weeks. She scheduled a session with me for the next day and said she would discuss the surgery with her husband.

That evening I received a call from her husband. He was outraged and threatening. He called me a "quack." He said I was putting his wife's life in jeopardy by giving her false hope, and he told me I would never have another chance to confuse her like this. He made it clear that she would not be coming back. When I began to respond, he hung up. I called back a short while later. She answered. Talking in hushed tones, she was clearly uncomfortable speaking with me. I said, "Okay, don't postpone the surgery, but please keep your appointment tomorrow. You don't have to pay. You have nothing to lose. I believe in what I am saying. In fact, I want you to bring your husband in with you. Find a way!" She did not believe he would come in, but the next day, they both arrived for the appointment.

I had her lie down on the massage table. My hope was to find a way to give this traditional and skeptical man, so poignantly fierce in his protection of his wife, an experience of healing energy that his senses could not deny. I could see a dark, dense energy at the site of his wife's left ovary, and it felt like my hand was moving through a muddy swamp. I asked the husband to place his hand a few inches above the area and begin to circle it, using a motion that tends to draw energy out of the body. To his great surprise, not only could he immediately feel that he was moving against something, within two minutes his hand was pulsing with pain. To his utter amazement, his wife reported that her pain diminished as his increased.

By the end of the session she was again pain-free, felt better, and looked better. I had also been able to show them both, through the use of "energy testing," that we had been able to direct healing energies from her immune system to the area of her cancer. I taught him a set of procedures to use with her every day. They decided to temporarily postpone the surgery and ask for further medical tests prior to rescheduling it. After about ten days of these daily treatments from him and three more sessions with me, she went through the additional testing. The tumor was gone.

The first practitioner of energy medicine is you, the one who inhabits the body being cared for. We are required today to live in conscious partnership with our body's energy systems if we are to live fully. And it is easier than you might think to learn how to mobilize inner forces that enhance your health, empower your mind, and literally brighten your spirit.
