Paying Attention to our Field Based Bodies

“Every feeling is a field of energy. A pleasant feeling can nourish. Irritation is a feeling which can destroy. Under the light of awareness, the energy of irritation can be transformed into an energy which nourishes.” 

- Thich Nhat Hanh


On a micro molecular level, energy and matter are the same things.  The only thing that differentiates a door and a thought is the rate of vibration.  The more dense the matter, the greater the vibration.

“The Living Matrix” is a movie that explores the various modalities of energy medicine and the growing science and discussion around it.  The final twenty minutes talks about the connection between the brain, energy and information.


Lnnn McTaggart (Unity Fields) states that the “brain is closer to a receiver of information” rather than something that processes, decodes and stores information.  Bruce Lipton talks about the mind as an energetic field with an MEG probe outside of the head being able to read a field of neural activity.  Lipton goes on to suggest that information informs biology.  Belief affects how we behave and thoughts create our moments.  Indeed, thoughts release chemicals which directly affect our bodies ability to maintain equilibrium, feel well or inform our body that something needs our attention.


Our mind cannot distinguish between action or thought. Belief, as in the case of the placebo affect, can even override biology. Lipton goes on to suggest that belief itself is our body’s strongest medicine.


Dr. Eric Pearl talks about this field being comprised of energy, light and information.  Pribram even goes further and suggests that memory actually exists in this field, outside of our body.


Our bodies are essentially a field, made up of molecules vibrating at various speeds. In this field based model of the body, information plays a key role.  Information determines what signals outside of the cell turn it on or off to various stimuli.


Genes are potential not deterministic Bruce Lipton (Biology of Belief)


So what does all of this information have to do with energy medicine? Energy practitioners, shamans, healers and empaths have intuitively worked with bodies as fields of vibration. Having the capacity and practice to see, feel, hear or experience the human being as a field of energy reinforces the science that is beginning to merge into the mainstream.


The more I learn about all of this, the more impressed I am with the wisdom and accuracy of Chinese Medicine which precedes modern medicine by a whopping 5,000 years. Modern “Science” is just now beginning to catch up with this perspective.


We are not just ingesting food in our bodies.

Your body is a field of vibration.  It is a heart and a bone and a breath and more.  What you breathe in your field and what you breathe out of your field matters.  You are not just moving air in and out of your lungs, but you are moving gratitude, overwhelm, wrath and bliss.  What you put in your stomach is not just a steak and salad, but you are also consuming your goals, your repressed feelings, your celebrations and griefs. All thoughts and things move through our fields and interact with our body parts both seen and unseen.


This holistic way of practicing wellness leads not only to better health and well being, but to transformation.  Ultimately, the goal is not only better physical health, but an awareness and profound appreciation for what you and all of your field of vibration have been specifically designed to do and be and serve.  Ideally,  transformation brings you closer to what Barbara Ann Brennan in Healing Hands of Light states,  going back to “remembering who you are”.
