The Power of Energy Medicine
Are you looking after your health by eating well? Our society now seems to be obsessed with diet and we keep being given endless do’s and don’ts in relation to what we should eat and drink: red wine is good for our heart, but too much alcohol is terrible for our liver. Sugary drinks can cause diabetes, but no-sugar drinks are full of dangerous chemicals. Butter raises our cholesterol, but margarine is now said to be even worse for us. All this endless dietary advice is actually pretty confusing, but in any case, it focuses on only one aspect of promoting long-term health and well-being.
We hear virtually nothing in the mainstream media about protecting our long-term health and well-being by filling ourselves with radiant energy. But as a long term practising Taoist and energy master, I know that cultivating abundant, positive inner energy or chi can play an absolutely key role in protecting both our physical health and our mental and emotional well-being.
If you learn to cultivate positive chi through some kind of holistic movement, such as Tai Chi, Chi Kung, or some forms of Yoga, you can eventually raise your energetic vibration and consciousness up to the level of ‘Love Energy’. This high, extremely powerful energy will automatically protect your physical and mental health because the higher always commands the lower, and the energy of universal love is much higher than the energetic vibration of the physical body.
Energy Practice as a Preventative Measure
To prevent ill health in the future, without having to take any type of medication, you need to cultivate chi abundance and inner radiance. Keep raising your energetic vibration week in and week out, and then do everything in your power to avoid spending any length of time in low energy environments such as bars, hospitals, busy shopping centres or deprived areas of big cities because unless you are superhuman, these types of environments will inevitably tend to drag your energy and consciousness downwards.
As well as avoiding low energy places and people, if you are really serious about protecting your long term health, you should do your very best not to lower your energetic vibration by hanging onto grievances and attack thoughts. All human beings have angry thoughts such as, ‘How could he be so mean!’ or ‘How dare she say that to me!’ So there is no need to feel guilty if a thought like this just pops up in your mind.
The real problem comes when we nurture these attack thoughts by feeding them with stories about how badly someone has behaved towards us and how much they have hurt us, or how unfairly life treats us. Telling ourselves ‘victimhood’ stories like this prevents negative emotions from naturally flowing right through us in just a minute or two. One unforgiving thought towards a parent or past partner can actually trap us in dark, toxic energy for a very long time – sometimes for a whole lifetime!
We all get caught up in angry energy at times – even long-term practitioners still do this. We also get caught up in egoic pride and endless egoic judgements about ourselves and others. Inevitably, some people in our lives keep pressing our buttons, and then we find it so hard to respond to them with nothing but love and compassion.
But we have to realise that holding onto negative thoughts and emotions with low dark energy attached to them such as anger, fear, guilt etc. will always lower our energy and consciousness. Then when our energetic vibration is low, we are much more likely to experience ill health of all kinds than a highly energised and energetically harmonious individual.
The Healing Power of Energy Work
All genuine long-term spiritual practitioners have to commit to transcending, or releasing, all of their fears, anger, jealousy etc. Many of you reading this probably already have a relatively high energetic vibration, but you still have to be careful not to be tempted to hang onto worldly anger, fear and judgement, or your vibration may go back down to life-destroying levels. You may now be able to be truly compassionate when you are full of light and radiant chi, but then when you tire yourself out by becoming too busy in the world, all of your compassion will fly out of the window.
Your daily life can become the perfect place to practise letting go of minor irritations and worries and returning to inner peace. If you do not practise on the little stuff, what on earth makes you believe that you will be able to stay peaceful and loving during one of life’s major challenges?
Someone hoots at you while you are driving, just pause breathe and let the feeling of irritation flow freely through you without falling for the temptation to rant and rave at the hooting driver. If you cannot do this, you will certainly not be able to release much deeper fear or rage.
See all of your projects as spiritual projects, including getting married or having a child. Do not see your daily life as separate from your spiritual path, or you will make very slow progress. Parenthood, for example, can actually teach you all sorts of spiritual virtues and spiritual lessons, such as infinite patience and putting others’ needs first.
But as well as utilising everything that happens to you each day as fuel for your spiritual growth, you should also keep taking time out from the world to avoid being dragged down by collective human consciousness. So, whenever you feel energetically or emotionally low or stressed, please take some restorative time out to re-charge your batteries. Go for a long walk in nature, or just spend some time very quietly by yourself without being hooked up to any kind of modern technology.
Your daily life and how you respond to it is far more important in terms of your long-term health and happiness than listening to ‘the dharma’ on a once in a blue moon spiritual retreat. So please keep using life’s little irritations to practise the life-saving spiritual art of rising above egoic fear and anger. Not only will practising letting go of all of life’s little fears and irritations protect your energy and your long term health and well-being, but it will also be of great benefit to all your family and friends.
We are all going to die one day, so which would you prefer: that your family and friends remember you as a miserable pain or as an exceptionally calm, happy, healthy, helpful person who brought true love and joy into their lives?
