Shame that you posted that...some might actually believe some of it.
I have to agree with BigMac! It seems people need an urgent update (or upgrade). Did the world stoped with Edgar Cayce? Don’t we have a better understanding now of what happens in the realm of healing and the so called miracle cures? Is someone in trance supposed to feel pain? I skip the metaphysics as the world of the new quantum physics is more than enough to blow our minds with amazement!
I cured myself of ulcerative colitis in 3 months after 10 years of suffering. I gave my diet book to the doctor! The same happened with my wife. After more than 15 years, she cured herself within one year of the “incurable” Ankylosing spondylitis. Two days ago, my father-in-law went to the hospital (emergency department) with an acute pancreatitis (a sudden inflammation of the pancreas. It can have severe complications and high mortality despite treatment.) Several tests were performed and they detected the presence of gallstones requiring an urgent chirurgical intervention. During that same night, my mother-in-law performed Reiki (at distance) to her husband. In the morning the doctors were astonished ---the gallstones simply vanished. She also performed Reiki to a boy she never met. He was dying with cancer at the hospital in a distant Country. The boy recovered short after, gave up smoking and changed his life completely. In the same manner, a malignant tumor in my niece’s leg has shrink mysteriously. I could go on and on… and I must say she never charged a dime for her healings.
Despite all the above, I don’t think I was cured by a diet but because I firmly believed I could heal myself. My wife has a hard time to understand why I don’t give more credit to Reiki, despite all the evidence that I witnessed and all the strange methods (psionics and alike) that I used to help in her own healing. The fact is that I am only skeptic regarding all the mysticism around Reiki and other healing practices.
My instinct leads me toward a new field, a new science of healing. I reckon it takes a lot of time to read a book or do a proper research, but this DVD movie sums it all up pretty well:
“Living Matrix: Film on the New Science of Healing” Format: DVD
For those with time to read:
“The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles”, Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.
... and this article that seems to confirm the saying "The Message is the Massage".
“Deconstructing the Placebo Effect and Finding the Meaning Response (Daniel E. Moerman, PhD; and Wayne B. Jonas, MD)”
“We provide a new perspective with which to understand what for a half century has been known as the “placebo effect.” We argue that, as currently used, the concept includes much that has nothing to do with placebos, confusing the most interesting and important aspects of the phenomenon.”
"Moreover, as we have clarified, routinized, and rationalized our medicine, thereby relying on the salicylates and forgetting about the more meaningful birches, willows, and wintergreen from which they came—in essence, stripping away Plato's “charms”—we have impoverished the meaning of our medicine to a degree that it simply doesn't work as well as it might any more."http://www.annals.org/content/136/6/471.full
