“Energy medicine,” everyone talks about it but nobody seems to know much about it?
Ch’i, prana, elan vitale, vital force, etc. are all loosely used terms since the 70’s used in a litany of books with assumptions “as if” everyone knows what it is, without any descriptions, solid definitions, and prime examples. In quantum physics, there is first a valid model or observation, then a fundamental theory which describes nature at its smallest scales. The subject of “energy medicine” and its descriptors should be no different.
A most recent book, Light in Shaping Life; Biophotons in Biology and Medicine (Van Wijk, R., 2014), furthers my observation of the above. It states on page 227, opening statement of “Electromagnetism: Basics” - “Basically, everything electrical stems from the phenomenon of charge. No one knows exactly what this is, except to say that it is a fundamental property of matter that exists in two opposite forms (or polarities) which we arbritrarily call positive and negative.”
However, there were aether physicists, nobodies in the world of biologic academia, that did know what charge is, as this book will report. Prominent of this charge was Nicola Tesla, whose discoveries of charge changed the world forever. Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse built the first hydro-electric power plant in Niagara Falls and started the electrification of the world.
"The evolution of electric power from the discovery of Faraday in 1831 to the initial great installation of the Tesla polyphase system in 1896 is undoubtedly the most tremendous event in all engineering history”.
-Dr. Charles F. Scott, Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at Yale University and former President of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers
Aether theory suppression parallels natural and indigenous medicines and have both suffered setbacks, most notably Mesmerism, Animal Magnetism, Odic force, and Homeopathy. Following on the heels of these suppressed movements, nature cure and allied modalities, naturopathy, chiropractic, osteopathy, eclectic medicine, and many others suffered likewise. Then came the Flexner report, conveniently titled Medical Education in the United States and Canada and the 22 page control ‘mechanism’ was more or less a teamsters union manifesto, and natural medical schools in the U.S. were cut in half by the Flexner Report in less than 15 years. With partnerships including Andrew Carnegie and JP Morgan (who also funded and sought control of Tesla), a new government “doorkeeper” would exist to influence legislative bodies on state and federal levels to create regulations and licensing “red tape” that strictly promoted drug medicine while stifling and shutting down alternative, inexpensive natural remedies. Those medical colleges and institutions that did not submit to this superpower of regulation were crushed and put out of business and many of their proponents sent to prison. So what the heavily funded Flexner Report did was to attempt to align medical education under a set of norms and police state controls that emphasized laboratory research, medical technology, and the patenting of synthetic medicines which would serve to further enrich the corporations who funded Flexner’s 1910 report: John Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, JP Morgan, and others. Natural medicines, electrotherapies, and drugless medicines like Chiropractic and Osteopathy were out of scope and in most cases would become ‘illegal’ practices of medicine. The only survivors were Christian Science and allied methods because they stayed in the religious domain of sphere sovereignty and gained exceptions as the 'practice of medicine'.

Chakras (Sanskrit: चक्र, IAST: cakra, Pali: cakka, lit. wheel, circle) are the various toroidal focal points in the aetheric subtle body used in a variety of ancient medical concepts and meditation practices, collectively denominated as Tantra, Yoga, or the esoteric or inner traditions of Hinduism. Beliefs differ between the Indian religions, with many Buddhist texts consistently mentioning five chakras, while Hindu sources offer seven, plus an 8th (splenic chakra). Early Sanskrit texts speak of them both as meditative visualizations combining flowers and mantras and as physical entities in the body. Within kundalini yoga, the techniques of breath exercises, visualizations, mudras, bandhas, kriyas, and mantras are focused on manipulating the flow of subtle energy through chakras, channels, and nadi.
The chakras are the key power centers of the energetic anatomy and physiology, and it’s important for you to have a better understanding of the eleven major chakras and the organs and parts of the body they regulate. The Power of Prana
Beginning at the top of the head, there is the crown chakra. The crown chakra controls and energizes the brain and pineal gland. It is also one of the body’s main entry points of prana, and energizing the crown chakra energizes the entire body. It’s similar to pouring water into a funnel; as prana enters the body through the crown, it flows throughout the entire body. The crown chakra is also the entry point of especially high-vibration prana generated during powerful meditations, since it is the aura’s center of divine love.
The forehead chakra is located at the center of the forehead, close to the hairline, and this chakra regulates the entire nervous system. Like the crown, it also energizes the pineal gland and can be used to direct prana throughout the rest of the body. The forehead chakra is the third eye, or spiritual eye, as it is known in some teachings. This is the chakra used for clairvoyance and higher consciousness perception and intuitive sensing.
The ajna chakra is located between the eyebrows and controls the pituitary gland and the entire body. The ajna chakra (or just the “ajna”) is often called the master chakra because it governs the other chakras and also the endocrine system. The ajna is often mistakenly called the third eye, usually by adherents of a seven-chakra system. As noted above, the forehead chakra is the true third eye.
The throat chakra is located at the center of the throat. It controls and energizes the throat, and thyroid and parathyroid glands. It also has a correspondence with the sex chakra, as the throat chakra is the higher center for creativity while the sex chakra is the lower center for creativity.
The heart chakra is located at the center of the chest and is one of several chakras with a front and back characteristic. The front heart chakra controls and energizes the heart and thymus gland, while the back heart chakra controls and energizes the heart and lungs. The heart chakra is important to many healing protocols because the thymus gland is so essential to the body’s immune system. The heart chakra has a connection to both the solar plexus chakra and the crown chakra. Since it is the center of higher or refined emotions, the heart chakra is related to the solar plexus chakra, which is the center of lower emotions. And since it is the center of worldly love, it also relates to the crown, which is the center of divine love.
The solar plexus chakra is located in the depression just below the sternum and also has a front and back characteristic. It controls the key organs of digestion, including the stomach, liver, pancreas, and intestines. The solar plexus chakra is the seat of lower emotions, with the front solar plexus chakra governing expressed emotions (for example, fear that you let out as a loud cry) and the back solar plexus chakra governing suppressed emotions (for example, long-harbored resentments, unspoken feelings). Since there is so frequently an emotional component to many ailments, the solar plexus chakra is almost always included in Pranic Healing treatments.
The spleen chakra has two aspects, a front and a back. The front spleen chakra is located under the floating rib on the left side of the body, while the back spleen chakra is located directly behind the front spleen chakra. The spleen chakra is a crucial energy center, as it is one of the major entry points of prana into the body, particularly air prana. For this reason, it is always included in healing protocols for patients with infections.
The navel chakra is located directly on the belly button and, like the solar plexus chakra, controls many of the organs of the abdomen, including the large and small intestines. It also controls the birth process. It is often confused with the tan tien, (“field of elixir” or “field of chi”) of Chinese and Taoist systems, or the hara of Japanese meditation and martial arts teachings. The tan tien (also spelled dan tien) is actually just below the navel chakra.
The meng mein chakra, or “gate of life,” is located on the back, right between the kidneys. It governs the kidneys, adrenal glands, and partially the urinary system. The meng mein is an important pump and transformer, as it directs energy up the back of the spine from the basic chakra during meditation. Most significantly, for healing and meditation, it also controls the blood pressure. Thus, Pranic Healing treatments for hypertension always include the meng mein.
The sex chakra is situated right behind the pubic bone in both men and women. It energizes the legs, sex organs, and also the throat because, as noted previously, the sex chakra is the lower center of creativity and is thus connected to the higher center of creativity (throat chakra). The sex chakra also energizes the brain, as prana is regularly circulated through the body upward to the head.
The basic chakra, or “root,” is located at the base of the spine. It governs the bones, muscles, soft tissue, and blood production. The basic chakra also affects your general sense of vitality and energy, the growth of children, and body temperature.
Together this aggregation of auras, chakras, and meridians—your energetic anatomy—has four main tasks:
1. It controls prana exchange or “pranic respiration”—that is, the regular
intake and expelling of prana, as well as its circulation throughout the
2. With the chakras acting as transformers and regulators and the meridians functioning as wires, it modulates the level of prana throughout the physical body.
3. It acts as an energetic barrier for the physical body, protecting it against all the various types of energetic contamination to which it is subjected.
4. It acts as an “energetic pattern” for the physical body. People often believe the body contains the aura, but it is actually the other way around: the array of chakras and auras are actually the form for the physical body. This concept is better understood when presented in a more overtly spiritual context, and it’s a topic worthy of a much longer discussion, but we’ll summarize it very briefly here.
The aura is the template for the physical body because of the esoteric or spiritual principle of correspondence, which states that there is an inner or energy world, and before something manifests in the physical world, it first manifests in that inner or energy world. Thus, the aura comes into being as the energetic manifestation of our divine nature, the Incarnated Soul. The nature of the Incarnated Soul is that it is pure, but not perfect. As a result, it continually strives to reconnect with the original source, God. This is the spiritual yearning that we all inherently possess.
But in order for the soul to make progress toward reunification with God, it needs to incarnate first in a physical body to learn certain lessons. The most fundamental of these is to recognize our true nature—that we are spiritual beings having a human experience; that we are a soul first, and a physical body second. Thus, the Soul manifests in this material plane in the form that we know as a human being. And the aura provides the energetic pattern for that physical body.
The ancients described in their texts anatomy's of no physical origin and discussed such glands as the 'triple burner' while omitting the pancreas altogether. They described pathways called channels, meridians, and vessels and energetic points called marma, loci, etc. These are discussed in our other courses.
This course examines the more modern advents, such as Randolf Stone's 'wireless anatomy,' and that of Dr. Guiseppe Calligaris. He had discovered that certain lines and points on the skin were related to the conscious and subconscious portions of the mind, and even to the enhancing of paranormal abilities. Calligaris called this new research, ‘linear chains of the body-mind.’ He discovered, experimentally, a network of lines — a grid of longitudinal meridians and parallels of latitude on the skin — that have less electrical resistance, are hyperaesthesic, and form geometrical patterns. For example, he discovered squares, which he called ‘windows to the cosmos.’
For over thirty years, Calligaris examined thousands of individuals, and discovered that the system of coordinates and points on the skin of the human body evoked reproducible effects. He proved that everybody could be stimulated to enhance clairvoyance, clairaudience, and precognition and retrocognition, the same way that we learn writing or mathematical calculations.
Other researchers are also covered in this intriguing course. 25 clock hours.
Vitalism is the firmly held belief that "living organisms are fundamentally different from non-living entities because they contain some non-physical element or are governed by different principles than are inanimate things". Where vitalism explicitly invokes a vital principle, that element is often referred to as the "vital spark", "energy" or "élan vital", which some equate with the soul.
Vitalism grew out of ancient medicine and became principle to TCM, monastic medicine, Unani, Ayurvedic, and Homeopathic concepts and precepts. In the 18th and 19th century during the renaissance, vitalism was discussed among biologists, between those who felt that the known mechanics of physics would eventually explain the difference between life and non-life; and vitalists who argued that the processes of life could not be reduced to a mechanistic or chemical process. Some vitalist biologists proposed testable hypotheses, meant to show inadequacies with mechanistic explanations, but these experiments failed to provide relevant support to minds of the time for vitalism. Biologists now consider vitalism in this sense to have been refuted by empirical evidence, and hence regard it as a superseded scientific theory.
2. Humoral medicines
3. Atomic (Biochemic) Modern Medicine
The purpose of this short course is to provide the practitioner, physician or prospective student an overview of the various esoteric (energy) traditions that today are often called "alternative and complementary medicines." The term energy has been widely used by writers and practitioners of various esoteric forms of spirituality and alternative medicines and refers to a seeming wide variety of phenomena, but as this course points out, there is a common theme of all of them that have arisen in human development. This 'energy' is sometimes conceived of as a universal life force running within and between all things, and in other cases it is seen as a more localized phenomenon, such as in vitalism, subtle bodies, or somatic energies such as qi (acupuncture), prana (Ayurveda and yoga), or vital force (homeopathy).
Those who have been so ordained are obliged to understand these various vitalistic medical systems. They are part of human culture and development, and offer service to our people when understood in righteous context. We should understand that the great religious leaders of the world such as Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Confucius, and the Reformers, as well as philosophers including Socrates, Plato, and others, received a portion of God’s light. Spiritual truths were given to them by God to enlighten whole nations and to bring a higher level of understanding to individuals. Things that are compatible to one another work together in peace, flow and beauty. Those who can perceive compatibility will therefore understand and experience the nature of peace, flow and beauty from the way things work together. One would therefore find closure to ignorance, gain peace and happiness, and fulfill the meaning and purpose of life, which is to find and recognize the meanings through experience and God's love.
This COURSE provides a general overview of the history and principles of energy (vitalistic) medicines and proposes acceptance of a common theme that pervades traditional and indigenous medicines, e.g. "shakti" (Indian yoga), Holy Wind, Seiki (mystical Japanese), mana loa (Hawaiian Kahunan), Lung (pronounced "loong," this is the Tibetan term which literally translates as "wind"), the greater kan and li (esoteric Chinese), huo (Taoist) and tumo or Dumo Fire (Buddhist); leading up to more modern concepts such as the odic force (von Reichenbach), mesmerism (Franz Mesmer's Animal Magnetism), elan vitale (French philosopher Henri Bergson), archaeus (Paracelsus), orgone (Wilhelm Reich), the primal fire (alchemy), and "the breath of life" (theosophy).
Various terms of 'energy' are widely used by writers, proponents, and practitioners of various esoteric forms of spirituality and "complementary and alternative' medicines. The context of energy refers to a variety of phenomena, from the unexplained to sometimes directly perceptible to some observers, who have usually undergone some form of training or initiation. This 'energy' is often conceived of as a universal life force running within and between all things, animate and inanimate, and in other cases it is seen as a more localized phenomenon within the organism such as in vitalism, subtle bodies, or specific somatic energies such as qi, prana, or elan vitale. Spiritual energy is often closely associated with the metaphor of life as breath - the words 'qi', 'prana', and 'spirit', for instance, are all related in their respective languages to the verb 'to breathe'. It is also often seen as a continuum that unites body and mind.
The experience of spiritual energy is described differently depending on the tradition or practice in question. Sometimes it is described as a physical sensation similar to the movement of breath in the body, sometimes as visible "auras", "rays", or "fields", sometimes as audible or tactile "vibrations". As a rule, these experiences are held to be available to anyone, but only after proper training or sensitization through practices which vary widely across different belief systems. Spiritual energy is also usually associated with feelings of bliss or contentment, as in the pleasurable sensations of kundalini, the ecstatic states of certain forms of meditation, and the 'oceanic feeling' discussed by western scholars such as Freud and Rolland. There is no scientific evidence of physical energies of this type.
Serious studies into the more esoteric approaches to healthcare provide considerable importance for anyone professing some form of skill or aptitude in most all of the alternative and complementary medical vocations (secular or religious). It is apparent that the themes of the vital energy, the elements, the etheric anatomy and etiologies are very similar. If their observations and teachings were fictitious and pagan, one would have to ask:
• Why did so many variant, medical traditions, at separate times in history and diverse geographic locations, arrive at so similar conclusions?
• Why did the theme of vital energy so animate so many medical traditions, and why did western science seem so adherent to crush its foundation in favor of chemical medicine?
• Why did the theme of the elements, whether four or five, survive for so many thousands of years, and interlace itself not only in human anatomy (the humours), but cosmogeny (astrology) in general?
This School proposes that humanity must retain the ancient esoteric teachings for posterity.

AETHEROLOGY [Physics of Energy Medicine]
We can rely on the words of Leonardo Da Vinci:
IF YOU GET IT RIGHT ON PAPER, IT WILL WORK.
Prior to the advent of modern medicine, all medical systems of import, accepted the philosophy of the ancients and adopted a vitalistic view of nature's processes. Called Vitalism - the belief that living organisms are fundamentally different from non-living entities because they contain some non-physical elements and are governed by different principles than are inanimate things. This has a very long history in medical philosophies: most all traditional healing practices posited that disease results from some imbalance in vital forces and have been extensively covered in our long list of courses.
Where vitalism explicitly invokes a living principle, then referred to as the "vital spark", "energy" or "élan vital", which some equated with the soul, it naturally influenced the minds of developing physics and chemistry. In the 18th and 19th centuries vitalism was also discussed among biologists, between those who felt that the known mechanics of physics would eventually explain the difference between life and non-life and vitalists who argued that the processes of life could not be reduced to a mechanistic process. Some vitalist biologists proposed testable hypotheses meant to show inadequacies with developing purely mechanistic and aetheistic explanations, but these experiments failed to provide support for vitalism in academia because it was a controlled politic. There were other schools of thought but they were being radically suppressed in a totalitarian fashion, which continues to this day. Biologists of the academic world now consider vitalism in this sense to have been refuted by empirical evidence, and hence regard it as a superseded scientific theory.
The fundamental particles of this period were being placed on the Table of Elements, a tabular display of the chemical elements, which are arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties. Astute physicists referred to this as 'ponderable matter', a product of condensed aether. These physicists postulated the existence of a subtle medium which permeates all space. They called it the aether. (ether).
The process of casting new light (if you pardon the pun) on these topics makes mandatory the introduction of two entirely new concepts:
1. One of these is an insight into the nature of the sea of aether, the origin of all phenomena on planet Earth, and its fundamental particle - anu/omni; and
2. The other are the all important concepts of aether particles - the aetherions (soft electrons); the photons; the hard electrons known to science; protons; and neutrons.
Heretofore, science has recognized the existence of only four types of such particles - photons, hard electrons neutrons, and protons.
All these ideas and particles will be employed throughout this Course to unravel the mysteries of the universe and lay solid foundation for a return of vitalistic medicine to its rightful place as a fully legitimate practice of medicine.
"The processes by which Nature creates the fundamental particles which combine to form atomic matter and so our whole universe determine certain numerical factors which are precisely the same whenever and wherever measured. These are known as the fundamental dimensionless constants. They are merely numbers but yet those numbers are encoded expressions which tell us that Mother Nature has, for some special reason, determined a definite relationship between certain physical quantities". [HAROLD ASPDEN, 2003]
In spite of all that has been accomplished in physics, there is still much to be understood to further clarify the vitalistic topics which they generally deny altogether, or only touch on only briefly or admit with embarrassment. Modern theorists have nearly always assumed that the phenomena of the universe cannot be explained in terms of mechanically minded models, thus came quantum physics. Unfortunately, they rely almost solely on mathematical descriptions (constructs) as a proper treatment of the subject which objectively has become a near religion. Tesla and a few others did the opposite, they created the ideas in their mind, out of the aethers, and went to the wood shoppe and built machines from scratch with drawings just like Leonardo da Vinci. They are the shakers and movers who have changed world history through their inventions, and from their scant writings and speeches we have traced together an entirely new interpretation of the ancient teachings, applicable to our modern world and vitalistic medicine. That is what this course and school is all about.
I have no doubt that, if you really read, study, and comprehend this Course, it will change the way you see most all things. The human mind is easily hypnotized through the use of language (words) and symbols. That is what mainstream academia has been doing to the public now for over one hundred years. It has subjected the public to mass hypnosis.
Any serious, intelligent doctor of medicine interested in understanding the true nature of physics, biochemistry, energy healing, psychosomatic illness, gravity and a unified field theory of all Life, will have to conceive of the interrelated movements of the sea of aether, atoms, molecules, and celestial bodies throughout the universe, as an integrated system of perpetual planetary and celestial motions, with interlocking radiation, nuclear-gravitational energy, electric and magnetic currents, with their fields and effects as the complete expression as the force of God. It is a circuitous, eternal process, in which 'energy' can be neither created nor destroyed, only changed in forms and radiations. These forces continuously transmute in nature, whether or not humans use them to perform "work" or change. Perpetual motion and change is the universal rule and not the exception. All energy and matter is conserved in changing forms, exchanging forces, effects, or matter, "using nothing up", and equaling zero point radiation to maintain perpetual stability. Every second, every change, whether good or bad conceived within the human mind, is a perfect expression of God's manifestation.
Time is a concept describing the rate at which events in the universe occur in a linear tract. 'Objective reality', in the purely physical sense, consists primarily of human sensory detection of electric-magnetic forces on ultra fine particles, which in turn, compose all atomic mass. Only the mind time tracks the movement of these forces, from moment to moment, which the brain records its illusion of a linear sequence, leaving a ghost called 'memory.'
Neither energy nor time exist, since these are only fictions or concepts we have created, to measure, calculate or predict certain functions and reactions in and between space, matter, light, "zero-point radiation", "zero-point ultra fine matter", and cruder "atomic matter" - which is only a concentrated assemblage of the latter.
What will be revealed in this course is the natural interplay between fundamental positive and negative electrical charges in elementary (physical) matter, the existence of a universal sea of aether, the permeation of space by its omnidirectionally interpenetrating Zero Point Radiation ("ZPR", or Tesla (scalar) radiation, aka the breath of God), the natural electromagnetic fields and enormous electrostatic forces emanating from the earth, along with the man made electromagnetic fields, which affect the aether through which it moves.
In Part II we study the aether in relation to human physiology.
Parallel to atomistic anatomy & physiology, Vitalist practitioners equally must keep in mind such importance to energy (aether) input and distribution into the body's matrix. Such aspects as breathing, sunlight exposure, vitality of fresh foods, etc. are all part of the patient assessment.
This is Part II, a continued course after WIRELESS ANATOMY.
25 clock hours.
The fundamentals of of all forms of healing, humoral, laying of hands, psychic, homeopathic, energetic, sympathetic, etc. can never be fully understood until the nature of aether is examined, as was done by Nicola Tesla, who's generator of electricity changed the world forever. Aether physics became a hidden science when it was realized the enormous profits to be made selling power, and kindred tools of industry in the early 20th century. The study of academic physics and chemistry ever since has been more to coverup, rather expose the source of infinite energy, what physicist Dirac termed a 'cauldron of energy' - the sea of Dirac.
According to ancient and medieval science aether (Greek αἰθήρ aithēr), also spelled æther or ether, is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere of manifest existence of the normal five senses or sensations: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. The word αἰθήρ (aithēr) in Homeric Greek means "pure, fresh air" or "clear sky". Aristotle added aether to the system of the classical elements of Ionian philosophy as the "fifth element" (the quintessence), on the principle that the four terrestrial elements were subject to change and moved naturally in straight lines while no change had been observed in the celestial regions and the heavenly bodies moved in circles.
In traditional Chinese culture, qi
(also chi or ch'i) is the active principle forming part of any living
thing. Qi is frequently translated as "natural energy", "life force", or
"energy flow". Qi is the central underlying principle in traditional
Chinese medicine and martial arts. The literal translation of "qi" is
"breath", "air", or "gas".
Concepts similar to qi can be found in most ancient cultures, for example, prana and cit in Hindu religion, mana in Hawaiian culture, lüng in Tibetan Buddhism, ruah in Hebrew culture, and aether in Western philosophy. Synaether posits that elements of qi and prana for westerners can be better understood in the term aether used by scientists, writers and practitioners of various esoteric forms of spirituality and alternative medicine.
There are vital energetic terms, central in the field of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that causes considerable difficulty for modern practitioners: Wind, Cold, Heat, Dampness, Dryness, and Summer heat. These are considered "evils", are external in origin, and can penetrate deeply into the body through the skin and meridians, forming nearly the entire basis of acupuncture known to the ancients. They are also described as "entities" with their physical hand-shake thought of being electromagnetic phenomena of weather patterns and of "pathogens". However, "cold" is not an "entity" since it is only an absence of a radiation phenomena measured by science as part of the electromagnetic spectrum. These issues are only vaguely resolved in current TCM literatures or entirely ignored altogether. Most practitioners of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) ascribe them now in modern terminology as "heat pathogens" and "cold pathogens" implying their hand-shake with microbes and viruses. This does not do justice nor bring the westerner to the essence of Chinese and ancient thoughts, let alone, acupuncture therapeutics.
A thorough understanding of the subject of vital energy is also a necessary foundation for the study of homeopathic philosophy, if the student is to understand the principles upon which the practice of traditional homeopathy is based. Energy is posited as a three-fold dimension: spiritual, dynamic (aetheric), and physical. In practical application we think of the source of energy as being a thing upon which we can draw upon for therapeutics. We draw upon spiritual energy (especially by Hope), upon dynamic/aetheric energy (for therapeutics), and upon physical energy (chemical and electric, e.g. herbal and nutritional). Because I speak of three forms of energy I do mean that they are essentially different in that they are layered. The different forms of energy (qi), layers insensibly into each other. Hope invokes spirit, so vital to life on earth. Vital energy is a store-house of vitality which exists in all nature and it shall be our special effort to so train you so that you may avail yourselves of the power which we call therapeutics. Physical energy is supported by dietary reform, relaxation and breathing, yoga, nutrition, etc. The astute doctor invokes all three-fold dimenions into his or her practice.
In acupuncture and homeopathy we are more particularly concerned with the dynamic/aetheric energy. This dynamic energy Hahnemann called the dynamis, the spirit-like as in many cultures, and in Chinese medicine the vital force, qi, in Ayurveda prana, etc. animating the material body. These are the core issues of therapeutics. In the human body we have present all three forms of energy, the physical/chemical in the tissues which today's science recognizes; the dynamic/aetheric in the aetheric body and anchored in the nervous system which theosophy, osteopathy, TCM and other ancient cultures recognized; and the spiritual in the mind which religions and new thought recognizes. This dynamis of the human organism inter-penetrates each and every physical tissue of the body, but it does not sit apart nor superintend all the actions of the tissues and organs. It is however, the power, the force, upon which we depend for metabolic reactions to move forward. The vital force is anchored in the body with the right nutrients as well as righteous thoughts (spirit). This brings us down to the practicality of taking advantage of this dynamic and vital energy in acupuncture therapeutics, bodywork, and our homeopathic prescribing. All energy, in its essence, consists of action and reaction, and this action and reaction are crux of energetic therapeutics. Granted, chemical energy in the form of nutrients will do much to invigorate the organism as they form the anchor for the dynamis, but add to that aetheric therapeutics and hope and all is potentiated.
