Quantum Energy Healing - The Dawning of a New Era

by Melissa Upham-Strickland

It is time now to awaken and remember who you really are and from whence you came. 

There is an innate universal intelligence that exists in all matter and continually runs through everything in the universe giving it all its properties and actions. All matter is created with the same basic building blocks, protons, neutrons & electrons. Universal intelligence determines the size, shape and form of everything in existence by organizing these basic building blocks in different ways; giving it different forms of expression. We are all different forms of expression of the same stuff, universal intelligence (life force), connected to each other and everything in the universe through it.

From these building blocks certain frequencies, energy and vibrations are emitted of which we now know about through quantum physics. These frequencies, energies and vibrations that are emitted from universal life force are connected together inside and outside of all matter to form a divine matrix, a pattern of universal intelligence of which all knowledge, information and healing flows through. This universal life force is all knowing, pure unconditional love and in a perfect state of health at all times in it's purest form. We were all once in this perfect state of being from the moment we were formed.  From the moment we came into existence we were all knowing, pure unconditional love with no illusion of boundaries.  Our bodies were created to function as a whole; all of its organs and systems working together to function in perfect harmony to create a perfect state of being, perfect health in every moment.  It is only through childhood conditioning, television, life experiences and fear that we have been reprogrammed to forget who we really are.  Each of us have it in us already; innate intelligence that is all knowing, perfect health and pure unconditional love.  We simply need to be taken to a place in our minds to remember. A place where space, time and fear and judgement do not exist.  Sometimes we need a little help to remind us of who we really are.  That is the purpose of the healer.

Anytime two or more forms of matter are joined together, a third type of existence is created. A third type of frequency, vibration and energy is formed; a sum greater than the whole of its parts. This is what happens during a quantum energy work session. The person, the “Healer” or “Energy Worker” working with you taps into the universal life force within you and the universal intelligent matrix that connects all matter bringing the knowledge, unconditional love and perfect state of being into your reality. Awakening your cells to their purest form of existence and allowing them to remember who you really are. The healer or energy worker acts as a conduit for the energy and information to pass through directing it through focus and intent into your cells where your body will automatically know where it needs to go and what to do with the information. With quantum healing there is no need to analyze everything that is out of balance, that which you may be holding on to and no longer in need of that prevents your personal growth. We each already know what our issues are. We have grown beyond having to psychoanalyze everything. Instead we just move it on out to make room for the new energies from universal intelligence to enter your body. The third form of existence that is created is healing and personal growth. With quantum healing you will notice changes in your subtle energy body during the healing session, feel changes in your physical body and feel a difference afterwards as the healing continues for days. Only 1-3 treatments are necessary for any condition.  Your healing practitioner will utilize many healing tools during this treatment such as breathwork, toning, crystals, chakra therapy, instruments and  visualization to adjust your frequency and increase your vibration; awakening your cells to the highest potential they are capable of achieving at the time.

More Cancer Centers and Doctors Encouraging the Use of Reiki

By Jack Bleeker

April 2010

With groups like the Society of Integrative Oncology, a multi-disciplinary organization of professionals, touting the advantages of complementary cancer treatment and recovery, new methodologies, including Reiki are gaining in popularity. More and more cancer centers and oncologists are beginning to recognize the benefits that these treatments – once dismissed with a snicker by those “in-the-know” – are providing for those who just don’t know where to turn to address issues like the pain and stress associated with cancer and its conventional treatments.

Complementary therapies - not to be confused with “alternative” therapies, which are unproven treatments – have gradually made their way to the forefront of cancer care as well-known oncologists who are lauded experts in their field begin to promote these supportive treatments as a natural part of cancer care. Even the National Institutes of Health operates a National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researching complementary therapies and then recommending proven ones for integration into cancer programs nationwide, including those associated with mesothelioma cancer.

Lately, the ancient form of spiritual healing known as Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee) has earned plenty of attention as a potential complementary therapy for all kinds of cancer, including mesothelioma. Rooted in Tibetan Buddhism, Reiki was “rediscovered” in the early 20th century and became particularly popular in the late 1990s as Reiki Masters began to teach non-Buddhists that life energy flows through all persons, this technique strives to increase the life force energy of a sick individual, therefore helping him achieve better health and happiness.

Like many complementary therapies, Reiki takes a holistic approach – treating mind, body, and spirit – and is safe and natural. Many cancer patients who have tried it note an overall feeling of peace, relaxation, and well-being when the treatment is complete. Totally non-invasive, Reiki therapy involves the laying of hands on the fully-clothed patient by the Reiki practitioner. His/her hands travel through 12 different positions, staying in each place for about 5 minutes for a total of about an hour per treatment. The feeling of invigoration or tranquility results from the fact that Reiki causes the body's molecules to vibrate at a higher intensity, hence, dissolving energy blockages that lead to disharmony and disease, Reiki masters note. This assists in controlling pain, easing stress, or lessening side effects of traditional treatments like chemotherapy, including nausea and other debilitating problems for mesothelioma cancer patients. It is also believed to improve immune function.

With continuous positive reactions from many cancer patients, prestigious cancer centers like Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center offer Reiki classes for cancer patients, including Sloan Kettering mesothelioma patients on a regular basis as well as in-service classes for their hospital staff. Other well-known hospitals to jump on the Reiki bandwagon include Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Columbia Presbyterian, the Yale Center, and Cancer Treatment Centers of America. The list continues to grow as patients use tools like the internet to advertise their positive reactions to this ancient healing art, enticing others to give it a try.
