The Energy of Life
Bioenergy. It's the force that animates biochemical matter, surrounding every cell like a miniature wire, providing a blue-print for the physical body and serving as a medium for the flow of information through the body.
Extending outside the physical body, it creates the low frequency electromagnetic fields around us, and other subtle energy fields not yet recognized by science.
A skillful Bionergy practitioner "scans" the body to detect these fields and sense energy flows, then restores the balance between biochemical and bioenergy components, bringing these flows and fields back to normal for improved health.
In Harmony With Science
Polish energy healer Mietek Wirkus was one of the first professional Bioenergy therapists employed by a medical center to compliment the work of physicians. In Poland, healers are accepted as valid medical therapists , licensed by the government after demonstrating to a council of physicians that their treatments have been successful on a number of patients.
Mietek Wirkus now lives in the Washington, D.C. area and has been part of numerous scientific studies, including a research project at Walter Reed hospital in which he "sent" energy to cell cultures with the intent to give the cells more calcium, a measurable "result".
An unexpected turn to the experiment occurred: when Mietek treated the cultures in one room, trays of stored cultures in nearby rooms responded to the energy!
Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of The Body Electric, tells of his personal experience with Mietek in his book Cross Currents. "When I spoke with Wirkus, he assured me that he could easily determine the presence of a disease and where it was located in each patient.he sensed energy coming from the area of disease. He was also certain that when he treated a patient, some energy passed from him to the patient. He told me that it took much more energy from him to treat cancer or schizophrenia than to treat arthritis, skin conditions, insomnia, or neuroses.
The process appears simple: the fully clothed patient stands erect, and Wirkus moves about the patient, keeping his hands a few centimeters away from the body surface. He appears to be almost in a trance state; his eyes are open but appear unfocused, and he has a peculiar respiratory pattern of short, audible, regular breathing.
The process takes less than ten minutes.
I shut my eyes so I would not know where Wirkus's hands were.on several occasions I noted distinct feelings of warmth and tingling.on opening my eyes I found that the sensations were located near the position of Wirkus's hands"
Detecting The Aura
Working in tandem with his wife Margaret, Mietek conducts classes which teach students how to strengthen and clear energy fields ,enhance and open their clairvoyance and recognize and work with the human energy system using exercises and meditations drawn from Tibetan & Huna healing.
Researcher/writer Williiam Collinge, relates his personal experience at one of these Bioenergy classes in his recent book, Subtle Energy. He describes the body's biofield or aura, the inner part of which is the most "visible", extending about 2-4 inches from the skin, and goes on to reveal his first time of seeing it as "very compelling". I remember sitting in a large meeting room of a hotel in a course being led by energy healer Mietek Wirkus..the lights were dimmed and the windows heavily curtained.
As I started across the room at those on the other side, I relaxed my eyes, blinked as little as possible, and tried not to focus. Gradually, as my eyes became more and more tired, it was as if they "gave up"struggling to see anything. It was at this moment of surrender that I began to see a glowing aura extending a few inches around the other people. . The moment I tired to see it more clearly, it would disappear, but when I relaxed completely again it would reappear". The Wirkus' teach that when the eyes become fatigued they cease having control over the visual process and the 'third eye', our intuitive faculty for seeing subtle energies, opens.
Strengthen Your Energy Field
The breath is of supreme importance to our energetic self. The essence of Bioenergy training is mind and breath working together to direct vital energy through us. Here is one of the exercises taught by Mietek and Margaret Wirkus that involves visualizing and directing each breath along a circular pathway through the body, corresponding with the Taoist "microcosmic orbit."
1. Inhale a complete breath for a count of 8, while imagining you are drawing energy upward from the sacrum to the back of the head at the level of the third eye.
2. Hold the breath for a count of four and imagine the energy moving from the back of the head through he pineal gland to the third eye in the center of the forehead.
3. Exhale thoroughly while imaging the energy cascading like a waterfall down the from t of your body to the front of your root chakra.
4. Hold the lungs empty for a count of four, imagining the energy moving from the front of the root chakra to the sacrum.
The third eye is the distribution center of your energy when you exhale , and you should visualize third of your energy being directed down the front of the energy orbit, a third directed through the shoulder joints and down your arms into the palms, and a third remaining in the third eye to strengthen and it.
Do this 3 or 4 times a day, using a series of 10-15 breaths to strengthen your energy field and make it resistant to intrusion from other energy sources.
Like Medicine Used To Be
With the rising interest in alternative methods of healing, it is becoming clear that these methods are not new but old. It is also clear that these methods have one common goal: to eliminate incorrect flows of energy in the body, helping to maintain the corrrect flow of information in the living system..The language of Bioenergy calls this "unblocking the flow of information".
Esoteric wisdom from the past now has an opportunity to be supported by contemporary science.
