Unraveling Mysteries of Energy Healing

I’ve been rereading one of my favorite books about energy healing, The Energy Cure: Unraveling the Mystery of Hands-on Healing. The author, William Bengston, Ph.D., is a professor of sociology at St. Josephs College in New York, and a respected researcher and educator. Yesterday I highlighted a section in which he’s describing an experiment with 30 mice.

“As a creative sidebar to this experiment, Margaret employed a geomagnetometer, which can measure fluctuations in the geometric micropulsations that are a constant part of the earth’s magnetic field. When I tried to influence the probe directly by passing my hands around it or by touching it, nothing happened. When Margaret put the probe in the room where I was treating my mice, the micropulsations suddenly changed from randomness to coherence, creating a wave lasting a couple of seconds. The fact that I was not able to affect the probe directly but only through an organism, suggested once again that my treatments were being triggered by the biological needs of those organisms.” [emphasis mine]

How cool, I thought.

This morning I was out for a nice walk around the neighborhood. As a woman and her Chihuahua approached, I smiled and said, “What a sweetie!”

To my surprise, she countered, “No, she’s not sweet. She bites people.”

Oh my. So I continued on, looked at the dog (who really did look sweet) and said, “Okay, I won’t try to pet her!”

A few steps later, a strong wave of energy washed through me. I was startled by its intensity. I pass people walking their dogs nearly every day, and I have not had a wave of energy hit me like that before. Was my my energy being triggered by a huge need of the dog? I hope I can find out! Next time I encounter the woman and her dog, I’ll see if the dog acts friendly 🙂

Stay tuned as the mystery unfolds…

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” –Albert Einstein
