Your Body is a Mirror of Your LifeWritten by Martin Brofman, Ph.D.
Your Body Is The Mirror Of Your Life Everything begins with your consciousness. Everything that happens in your life, and everything that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. Your consciousness is who you are, your experience of Being. You decide what ideas to accept and which to reject. You decide what to think, and you decide what to feel. When these decisions leave you with residual stress, you experience stress as if in your physical body. We know that stress creates symptoms. The interesting question is, "Which stress creates which symptoms?" When we are able to quantify this process, we are then able to see body as a map of person's consciousness, relating particular symptoms to particular stresses and particular ways of being, in same way that Type "A" Behavior has been able to be associated with heart disease. Everything Starts In Your Consciousness To understand this map, we must first orient ourselves to idea that causes of symptoms are within. While it's true that germs cause disease and accidents cause injuries, it is also true that this happens in accord with what is happening in consciousness of person involved. Germs are everywhere. Why are some people affected and not others? Something different is happening in their consciousness. Why do some patients in hospitals respond better to treatment than others? They have different attitudes. Something different is happening in their consciousness When someone is injured in an "accident," why is it that a very specific part of body is affected, and that it is same part that has had habitual problems? Is that an "accident," or is there a pattern and an order to way things happen in our bodies? You Are A Being of Energy Your consciousness, your experience of Being, who you really are, is energy. We can call it "Life Energy" for now. This energy does not just live in your brain; it fills your entire body. Your consciousness is connected to every cell in your body. Through your consciousness, you can communicate with every organ and every tissue, and a number of therapies are based on this communication with organs which have been affected by some kind of symptom or disorder. This energy which is your consciousness, and which reflects your state of consciousness, can be measured through process known as Kirlian photography. When you take a Kirlian photograph of your hand, it shows a certain pattern of energy. If you take a second photograph while imagining that you are sending love and energy to someone you know, there will be a different pattern of energy shown on Kirlian photograph. Thus, we can see that a change in your consciousness creates a change in energy field that is being photographed, which we call aura. This energy field shown in Kirlian photographs has been quantified, so that when there are "holes" in particular parts of energy field, these are said to correspond to particular weaknesses in specific parts of physical body. The interesting thing about this is that weakness shows up in energy field before there is ever any evidence of it on physical level. Thus, we have an interesting direction of manifestation shown through what we have described. 1. A change of consciousness creates a change in energy field. 2. A change in energy field happens before a change in physical body. The direction of manifestation is from consciousness, through energy field, to physical body. Consciousness------1------>Energy Field------2------>Physical Body
When we look at things in this way, we see that it is not physical body creating energy field, aura, but rather aura or energy field that is creating physical body. What we see as physical body is end result of a process that begins with consciousness. We Each Create Our Reality When someone makes a decision that leaves them with stress, creating a blockage in energy field with a sufficient degree of intensity, this creates a symptom on physical level. The symptom speaks a certain language, which reflects idea that we each create our own reality. When symptom is described from that point of view, metaphoric significance of symptom becomes clear. Thus, instead of saying, "I can't see," person would have to say, "I have been keeping myself from seeing something." If they cannot walk, they would have to say, "I have been keeping myself from walking away from something." And so on. We must understand that there are no accidents and no coincidences. Things do happen according to a pattern and order.
AIDS - A Healer's Point of ViewWritten by Martin Brofman, Ph.D.
A Healer's View of AIDS by Martin Brofman, Ph.D. We are each an energy system. Energy flows through our being, and is directed by our consciousness. When we are healthy, or in balance, energy flows smoothly. The flow of energy is regulated by seven energy centers, called chakras. Any illness or disease can be described as an out-of-balance condition. AIDS (or being HIV positive) is an out-of-balance condition affecting immune system. The immune system is governed or controlled by thymus gland, which in turn is regulated by heart chakra. The heart chakra is that part of our energy system affecting and affected by our perceptions of love. AIDS, then, is an out-of-balance condition that is in some way related to individual's perceptions of love. The disease began among those members of our society whose life-styles created a sense of separation from those they love. Without love they needed, and seeing no way out of their dilemma, those people decided at some point that they would rather die. The immune system then deteriorated so that their wishes could be carried out. Among members of homosexual community, determination to assert freedom of sexual expression was accompanied by a need to hide this sexual preference from parents, from business associates, and from members of heterosexual community in general, for fear of not being accepted, not being loved. With generally puritanical attitudes of heterosexual community, fears were often justified, but situation also created in many members of gay community a non-acceptance of themselves, a judgmental way of seeing themselves that stimulated even more of an assertive tone to exercising of their sexual preferences, with a louder demand for acceptance. Without individuals' acceptance of themselves, however, they would have difficulty recognizing acceptance of others. There would remain suspicion that others were judging them as they were judging themselves. In Haitian community, harsh martial rule imposed by Duvalier dictators created an atmosphere of suspicion and fear, even between members of same family, overshadowing love. Again, lifestyle or people created a sense of separation from those they love. And so, AIDS was born there, too. Drug users, too, who were affected, were living life-styles separating them from those they love, and so they closed their hearts. Children born to them, not finding love they needed, also began to die - again, from lack of love. When these children went to public schools, they were separated, ostracized, and again, not loved - because they were ill! They were feared, and parents of healthy children demanded that AIDS children be removed from schools. So, there was more non-acceptance. Our perceptions create our reality. We can say that those who developed AIDS had perception that they were not loved. That perception was fed and reinforced, and these people were able to affirm even more their basic belief that they were not loved, and prove to themselves that it was true. Then, they asked themselves, what was there to live for? The response by many of not perceiving themselves to be loved, was to not love, in return, and so heart chakra shut down more and more, affecting thymus gland, and immune system. Our society created AIDS to show us that we need to love more. We have entered Age of Aquarius, age of heart chakra. We have, as a planetary consciousness, entered an age in which it no longer makes sense to think in separatist terms, or in terms of conflict. We are obliged now to think in terms of cooperation, in terms of what we can do to help others, in terms of love, in terms of service.
