Metaphysics In A Medical World
Once, not that long ago, metaphysics referred to Atoms and other things unseen. Now we have the equipment to measure atomic particles. One day we will be able to measure healing energy and map vibrations of the human spirit, But Aha that technology already does exist to a point with the aura mapping equipment in use today. Metaphysics now represents the Philosophy that the world is affected by things unseen, energetic systems and our relation with the universe; it also represents a non-dualistic theory of the universe. We can measure and prove we are more than just the solid and visible flesh, we are energetic beings. The Electrocardiogram is a medical illustration of the electrical vibration that runs our heart. So where do metaphysics and medicine meet? We must come to a total package; Body, Mind and Spirit determine our health and wellness.
Body, Mind and Spirit health is about the complete integration of all our systems to create wellness. We are not a machine to be parted out and worked on as a car that goes to the mechanic. Indeed we are, as referred to in Chinese medicine, like a garden to be fed and nurtured. Cause and effect take on new meaning when you look at the human body as an infinitely connected energetic system.
In the coming months of this column I will address medical diagnoses and then discuss holistic and metaphysical approaches. My goal is to provide education so that those who suffer can find relief. I know there are many that are taking multiple medications that are interacting and not healing but creating more problems. There are individuals that have had multiple tests and procedures and yet their Medical Provider still ”doesn’t know what is wrong.” I must offer the obligatory disclaimer please before you make any radical changes in your healthcare regime consult your healthcare provider. I also must say if you are going to work with alternative medicine seek a competent provider. You have a fool for a doctor if you treat yourself. Herbal medicines and supplements that are commonly available may be contraindicated in your condition. Just because they are on the shelf at the store does not mean they are safe. There are many things we can do for ourselves without a Provider visit, changing our mindset is the first step.
I have worked as a Nurse for 30 years in allopathic health care. For 25 years I have studied holistic and alternative therapies, including Energy Medicine, Herbs , Homeopathy and Aromatherapy. My experience in the Hospitals, Clinics and Nursing Homes lead me to believe we must integrate all approaches. It is also my belief that many of modern medicines are not a cure, just a cover up of symptoms that are rooted in energetic and emotional origins. The metaphysical and holistic approach is a way to address all forms of “illness” and provide true Wellness and Healing, not just suppression of symptoms.
I am also a Psychic and Medical intuitive. I used this gift for many years in secret in my Nursing work. The medical system in the USA was not ready to believe. I hope as we move to the shift all the Nurses and Physicians with “Good Intuition” are able to be recognized and work openly with their special gifts. I would like to pay honor to one of my early role models and teachers Barbara Dossey, RN her lectures and books on Holistic Nursing inspired me that I was indeed on the right path.
I would also like to thank Carolyn Myss; the small group weekend lecture I attended with her many years ago let me know that what I was experiencing was called being a “Medical Intuitive”. I hope with this monthly column I can educate and inspire as these women did for me.
I am happy to take suggestions on topics from readers of this magazine. If there is a specific diagnosis that you would like me to cover please send me an e-mail. I will be addressing Psychiatric Diagnosis as well as Medical issues.
