Alternative healing methods
Medicine and the way we treat sickness is changing. The future has come or maybe its the past. Spirituality has met science and has become our new advancement for medicine. Its the best of both worlds. the new age movement speaks of a planned influence starting in the education branch to the political and the medical. Dick Sutphen a New Ager and promoter of this change says one of the biggest advantages we have as New Ager's is once the occult metaphysical and new age terminology is removed we have concepts and techniques that are very acceptable to the general public and open the new age door to millions who normally would not be receptive.
The Church is not exempt from this planned influence and we need to know what our doctors are practicing or recommending. In some ways we are naive to the Spiritual influences that are contrary t a biblical world view. If the terms and names are changed we can end up participating without ever knowing what it is we are participating in.
CNN /Time poll states that 30% of the US population has tried some form of unconventional therapy. Last years therapies were a 30 billion dollar industry and is continually growing. The concept promoted by these new alternative therapies are to replace the drug use its side affects and our dependency on pharmacy. So who can argue about that. Instead of pain killers it may be acupuncture, instead of getting a minor operation its a need to balance energies. This may sound far fetched but it as become the norm in our society.
The concept behind all this is simple, there is an intelligence that pervades the universe, when we become unaligned with it we become sick. Claims from new age practitioners are that our health problems are a result of misalignment of the latent natural energy within. To have perfect health, emotional spiritual as well as physical this energy must be aligned with various techniques that are unknown to general practitioners but used by those who have trained in new alternative ways to heal. We need to treat not only the body but the mind and essentially the Spirit.
LIST OF ALTERNATIVES: HOLISTIC HEALTH, ACUPUNCTURE, ACUPRESSURE, ROLFING, APPLIED KINESIOLOGY, IRIDOLOGY, REFLEXOLOGY, POLARITY, CHIROPRACTOR, AURIC BALANCING, REIKI REBIRTHING, BIOFEEDBACK, BIO-RYTHYMS, TRANSPERSONAL COUNSELING METAPHYSICAL COUNSELING, GROF, SHIATSU.
1) HEALING WITH SOUND --- EACH ORGAN IS BELIEVED TO HAVE A CORRESPONDING VIBRATION ATTACHED TO IT. LIKE IN MANTRAS OR SACRED WORDS BEING USED TO PENETRATE ONE'S PSYCHE AND ALIGNING THE ENERGIES THAT ARE OUT OF BALANCE FROM UNNATURAL SOUNDS SUCH AS: REFRIGERATOR MOTORS, CAR SOUNDS, AND HUMAN SOUNDS OF PAIN. NEW AGE MUSIC--- (STEVEN HALPERN-IASOS) IS WELL KNOWN FOR THIS TYPE OF MEDITATIVE MUSIC TO SOOTHE THE SOUL). WHILE MANY NEW AGE MUSIC CAN BE ENJOYABLE THEIR ARE SPECIFIC TAPES TO BRING ONE INTO A ALTERED STATE FOR HEALING OR VISITATIONS OF SPIRITS, ONE NEED TO BE CAUTIOUS BEFORE OPENING THEMSELVES UP TO THIS.
2) HEALING WITH COLOR --- COLORS ARE USED IN HEALING IN A SIMILAR MANNER TO THE WAY NUMBERS ARE USED IN NUMEROLOGY. COLORS AND NUMBERS ARE COMPLETELY NEUTRAL, BUT WHEN PLACED INTO AN OCCULTIC SYSTEM THEY BECOME TOOLS FOR OCCULT USE. USING COLORS TO CORRESPOND TO THE AREA THAT IS SICK THE SUBJECT PLACES THEM NEAR THE AREA OR CAN VISUALIZE THE COLOR. THEY ALSO WILL EAT FRUIT THAT HAS HEALING COLORS AS WELL AS WEAR MATCHING CLOTHING TO INITIATE OR HELP THE HEALING PROCESS. THE SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC HAVE THEIR OWN COLORS THAT CORRESPOND TO THE ANATOMY ALSO. THIS ALSO IS USED TO INCORPORATE A SPEEDY RECOVERY.
3) HEALING WITH CRYSTALS --- PLACING CERTAIN STONES OVER THE CHAKRA POINTS AND OTHER POINTS OF IMBALANCE OR BLOCKAGE TO REALIGN THE BODIES ENERGIES. THERE ARE DIFFERENT STONES FOR EACH ENERGY CENTER AND ORGAN. (Crystals )
4) BIOFEEDBACK --- YOU ARE HOOKED UP TO A PASSIVE MONITORING MACHINE THAT IS USED TO EXTEND THE 5 SENSES CREATING A NEW SENSE OF AWARENESS, BY OPENING UP YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS TO THE INTEGRATING OF THE MIND AND BODY AND PROCESSES WHICH CANNOT BE TAPPED THROUGH NORMAL CONSCIOUSNESS.
IT PROMOTES RELAXATION, CREATIVITY AND INTUITION. YOU BECOME IN CONTROL OF YOUR BIOLOGICAL PROCESS, THIS IS DONE BY FEEDING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROCESS OBTAINED FROM THE MEASURING INSTRUMENT BACK TO THE PERSON.
USING THIS MACHINE BY RESPONDING TO IT'S INFORMATION, YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR MUSCLES AND EYE MOVEMENT, BRAIN WAVES AND LEARN TO GO INTO ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS. AFTER YOU ARE TRAINED, YOU NO LONGER NEED THE MACHINES INPUT. (THIS OUT OF ALL THE ALTERNATE TREATMENTS HAS THE MORE PRACTICAL APPLICATION, YET THERE ARE STILL ELEMENTS THAT ARE UNKNOWN AND CAN BE DANGEROUS)
5) BACH FLOWER REMEDIES --- EDWARD BACH WAS A PRACTICING PHYSICIAN IN LONDON, WHO GAVE UP HIS PRACTICE TO FIND REMEDIES, AND
TO PERFECT HIS METHOD OF FLOWER HEALING.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THIS HEALING IS THAT BY TAKING THESE FLOWER REMEDIES, THE SUFFERER WILL BE ABLE TO OVERCOME WORRY, FEAR, OR DEPRESSION AND THAT WOULD ENABLE THE PHYSICAL ILLNESS TO DISAPPEAR. IN OTHER WORDS, OUR STATE OF MIND CAUSES ILLNESS AND WHEN PEACE AND HARMONY RETURN TO THE MIND, HEALTH RETURNS TO THE BODY.
THESE FLOWERS ARE COLLECTED FROM WILD PLANTS, BUSHES, AND TREES. AN EXAMPLE OF THESE REMEDIES IS ROCK ROSE WHICH IS FOR EXTREME TERROR. THERE ARE 4 OTHER REMEDIES FOR FEAR, AND 33 ADDITIONAL REMEDIES TO HEAL OTHER EMOTIONS, WHICH WILL ENABLE THE BODY TO HEAL ITSELF.
6) MASSAGE THERAPY --POLARITY THERAPY, SHIATSU AND REFLEXOLOGY AND OTHER TYPES OF ENERGY BALANCING MAY ALL BE USED BY MASSAGE THERAPISTS AND POSSIBLY CHIROPRACTORS-IT'S GOOD TO ASK THEM WHAT THEIR BELIEFS OR PHILOSOPHY IS ABOUT THEIR THERAPY AND WHAT THE TECHNIQUE IS CALLED THAT THEY WILL BE TREATING YOU WITH SO THAT YOU THAT YOU CAN CHOOSE TO REFUSE THE TECHNIQUE OR FIND ANOTHER THERAPIST.
SWEDISH MASSAGE IS JUST THE MASSAGING OF THE MUSCLES TO BRING RELIEF FROM TENSION AND SPASMS--BUT THEY MIX IT WITH MANY OTHER TECHNIQUES--SO ASK QUESTIONS.
7)POLARITY THERAPY --THE FOUNDER OF POLARITY THERAPY, DR. RANDOLPH STONE, WAS A MEMBER OF THE OCCULT RADHASOAMI SECT AND AUTHOR OF THE OCCULT ORIENTED MYSTIC BIBLE.
THIS METHOD BALANCES THE PLUS AND MINUS ENERGY POLARITIES BY GENTLE MASSAGE, LOVE, THOUGHT AND ATTITUDE, MANIPULATION, EXERCISE AND DIET. THEY BELIEVE THAT DISEASE BEGINS IN THE MORE SUBTLE FIELDS OF MIND AND EMOTIONS. BY NEGATIVE THINKING, WE CREATE OUR OWN PROBLEMS.
THE LAYING ON OF HANDS FOR THE ENERGY
EXCHANGE OCCURS-THIS CAN SOMETIMES LEADS TO PSYCHIC EXPERIENCES WHICH VALIDATES THE PROCESS.
EXPLANATIONS HANDS WILL ALWAYS BE PLACED ON OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE BODY TO STIMULATE SPECIFIC POINTSTHEYLL LIGHTLY TOUCH SO THEY CAN FEEL THE PULSE--MOST TIMES THE PULSES ARE DIFFERENT--AND THIS MEANS ENERGY IMBALANCE AND THEY'LL HOLD THOSE POINTS UNTIL THEY ARE BEATING AT THE SAME RATE.
AT THE END OF THE TREATMENT THE THERAPIST WILL SHAKE HANDS TO RELEASE ANY NEGATIVE ENERGY THEY MAY HAVE ACCUMULATED FROM THE OTHER PERSON.
8) AROMATHERAPY --- THE ART OF HEALING BY INHALING THE ESSENTIAL OIL FRAGRANCES OF FLOWERS, HERBS, AND AROMATIC WOODS TO BRING THE BODY, MIND, SPIRIT INTO BALANCE.
9)ASTRAL TRAVEL --- SOUL TRAVEL---(ECKANKAR) --- LEARNING TO BE CONSCIOUS OF YOUR DREAM STATE. BEING FULLY AWARE OF TRAVELING IN THE SPIRIT REALM TO OTHER SPHERES, PLANETS, OR DIMENSIONS. PEOPLE WILL USUALLY SEE A LIGHT, AND HEAR CELESTIAL MUSIC AND EXPERIENCE MEETING SPIRIT GUIDES.
10) READING AURAS ---BELIEVED TO BE AN EGGSHELL ENERGY FIELD AROUND THE BODY, CONFORMING TO THE BODIES SHAPE. DIFFERENT COLORS WILL SHOW YOUR HEALTH, ATTITUDE, AND CONSCIOUSNESS. GREY IS ASSOCIATED WITH FEAR AND DEPRESSION, ORANGE PRIDE, AND AMBITION, DEEP FLASHES OF RED SHOW ANGER. BY READING ONE'S AURA, SICKNESS WILL BE SHOWN BEFORE IT IS PHYSICALLY MANIFESTED. ALSO KARMA CAN BE READ AS A LIFE READING. CLEANSING AND ALIGNING THE AURIC FIELD IS COMMON PRACTICE IN THE NEW AGE MEDICINE. THE PRACTITIONER WILL SHAKE THEIR HANDS AFTERWARD TO RID ANY NEGATIVE ENERGIES.
THE TEACHING IN THE OCCULT SAYS, EVERYTHING IN THE MATERIAL UNIVERSE IS VIBRATING, HAS SOUND, COLOR, A NUMBER AND FORM ATTACHED TO IT.
TO SEE INTO THE SPIRITUAL REALM, ONE NEEDS TO BE PSYCHIC, THEY NEED TO AWAKEN THE 6th SENSE, THE THIRD EYE, THE ALL SEEING EYE. THIS IS CALLED THE EYE OF HORUS, AND THE EYE OF THE ILLUMINATI.
The hands are powerful tools used in occult healing. "It is an occult fact that the hands of a disciple. become transmitters of spiritual energy" (Alice A. Bailey, A Treatise On White Magic, 6th ed. p. 576).
Just because a practice is Occultic does not mean it has no power or will not work, it can bring results. But because it works does not always mean it is beneficial. To participate in any of these to greater or lesser decrees is dangerous and can bring deception and oppression. All this psychic and occult healing is done in the name of whatever god one believes in (usually one of forces). Spirits (demonic) when involved can masquerade as agents of healing and health for the purpose of diverting our attention from the Lord who is the great physician. Unfortunately the people practicing the occult arts are disciples of deceit deceiving others, hopefully not you.
