To really understand this, first you need to understand that our being is comprised of 5 different levels of health.
The 1st or densest level is the physical body. The physical body is the foundation upon which everything else rests. It is our connection to the earth and the source of our physical energy. Supplements, pharmaceutical drugs, surgeries, chiropractic adjustments all operate in the 1st level (they work in a bio-chemical or bio-physical way). Most medical doctors operate almost exclusively in the first level.
The 2nd level is the energy body. Within it is the summation of all electric and magnetic events caused by the activity of the nervous system. Most nerves in the body travel in the longitudinal axis of the body and create electric fields along these nerves. The magnetic fields created by these forces travel perpendicular to this axis into space. Even though their strength decreases with distance from the body, they extend into space beyond the skin, theoretically into infinity. The most profound new knowledge on this level comes from the world-renowed physicist Fritz-Albert Popp: each cell emits biophotons (that is to say “life-light”, which is highly coherent and polarized). The biophoton field created by the light emissions around the body regulates most metabolic enzymes inside the cells. It modulates neural transmission, neurotransmitter releases, detoxification and many other body functions. The 2nd level is easily disturbed by Electro Magnetic Frequencies (EMF) which create electro-smog. Working on the acupunture meridians of the body is an example of a treatment on the 2nd level.
The 3rd level we call the mental body or “mental field”. Beliefs, attitudes and thoughts form and organize this level. There is an individual mental field and a consensus field (consensus reality). Rupert Sheldrake has named this level morphic field. Every idea or thought ever thought goes into this field and becomes part of an invisible library that can be accessed by anyone. Sheldrake has published his experiments in several books and scientific publications. Every emotion (2nd level) is preceded by a perception and a thought or chain of thoughts. Thoughts trigger emotions and other energy body changes, which in turn trigger change in the physical body (1st level). Disconnecting clients from the consensus field of their symptoms is the key in the 3rd level.
The 4th level is a level beyond the mind and beyond language. It is the home of near-death experiences, archetypes, spirit possession, ecstatic states and the expression of unresolved trans-generational family issues. The highest level at which an interaction between practitioner and client is possible is the 4th level.
The 5th level is the spirit body. The only relationship that exists here is the relationship between the individual and God. The fifth level is our interaction with the part of God that reaches toward the individual regardless of all his or her flaws, strengths and idiosyncrasies.
