By Chitra Jha March 2012 Everything from cancer to acne can be healed when disease-creating memories are cleansed with the energies of love, compassion and unconditional acceptance, says Chitra Jha Words of wisdomAll healing is first a healing of the heartCarl Townsend, US Navy officer Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it Helen Keller, visually challenged pioneer and activist Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassionBuddhaHealing yourself is connected with healing othersYoko Ono, Japanese artist The soul is healed by being with childrenFyodor Dostoyevsky, Russian novelist The wish for healing has always been half of healthLucius Annaeus Seneca, Roman philosopher Way back when I was growing up, most minor sicknesses were treated at home as mothers had all the time and knowhow to brew various concoctions, make hot/cold poultices, and pound various herbs. Such knowledge was freely shared and practised. The family doctor was visited or called upon only when illness could not be contained or threatened to turn serious. It was almost like praying to God when all else failed. No wonder doctors were treated like gods!In 1976, I entered the hallowed portals of a multi-specialty hospital (a rarity in those days) as a military nursing cadet with awe-filled eyes. The more I learnt about anatomy and physiology, the more I looked at the human body as a wonderful bio-machine. Gradually, the image of the doctor changed from God to a skilled mechanic who knew how to ‘fix’ his particular ‘organ’ of expertise. Marriage and homeopathy After marriage, I experienced the ‘magic of minimum dose’ as my father-in-law diligently and passionately practised homeopathy. The magic bowled me over so completely that I quit my profession and studied homeopathy. The principles of ‘like cures like’ and ‘vital force’ resonated with my being, and I switched over my complete allegiance to this far gentler and less invasive way of treating human beings. Since homeopathy does not treat the body in ‘parts’, the term ‘wholistic’ became holy in my mind. It was interesting and thrilling to find the right medicine based upon minute observation and study of a person as a whole. Deepak Chopra: a key player in the wholistic healing field I basked in the comfort of my sweet pills, until the turn of the millennium when my 12-year-old son fell prey to jaundice while studying in a boarding school. My brother-in-law accompanied me to the Himalayan foothills to fetch the ailing boy back home to Delhi. The youngster looked dishevelled as he had not slept for days. He also had a bad headache. As I lamented that I was not carrying my ‘magic box’ with me, my brother-in-law assured me, “Don’t worry. I will send him Reiki.” Reiki? Now what was that? And how could one ‘send’ it while driving a car? Before I could even ask these questions, the miracle happened. My son simply dozed off with his head in my lap. I came back determined to learn Reiki; and that was a turning point. When you ‘feel’ energy flowing through your hands, all your doubts melt away. That was my first encounter with ‘consciousness’. I have come a long way in the past 11 years, having experimented with not only Reiki but also EFT, Ho’opono-pono, past-life regression, inner child work, and re-birthing breath-work. All these therapies come under the umbrella of ‘Energy Work’, but how does the energy work? They say that the proof of the pudding lies in its eating, so the best way to understand energy work is to experience it; but the scientist in me would like to share my grasp of this work, which I call, ‘healing at the level of consciousness’.All-pervadingConsciousness is the unseen principle that is omnipresent, and one with all life; we also know it as ‘God’. At first, before creation happened, there was nothing but an ocean of pure consciousness. As consciousness contemplated upon itself through ‘first thought’, it created itself. It effectively means that we are a part of the consciousness which has manifested itself in matter. The physical body is the most condensed form of consciousness, while God is the most vibrant form of consciousness. It won’t be wrong to say that we have been created through God’s thoughts. And since God created us in his own image, we too are given the In his book, Ageless Body Timeless Mind, Dr Deepak Chopra tells us that no cell in our body, except the brain cells, is more than seven years old, as cells keep regenerating all the time creative power of thinking. All thoughts come from ‘pure creative consciousness’ and all thoughts create. Disease and health are both created by our thoughts.In his book, Ageless Body Timeless Mind, Dr Deepak Chopra tells us that no cell in our body, except the brain cells, is more than seven years old, as cells keep regenerating all the time. Whether a person is 17 years old or 70 years old, his body cells are anywhere between the ages of 0-7 years! If this is true and it is, then why do we look the way we do? Why do our new cells carry old information of disease and age? This is where my understanding of homeopathy principles helps. In homeopathy all medicines are prepared in such a way that by the time the medicine is ready to be dispensed, it hardly carries any ‘material substance’. In fact, higher the potency of a medicine, lesser the substance in it! It only carries a ‘memory’ of the substance and this memory is so potent that it ignites the vital force into action; thus affecting a healing. This principle tells us that ‘memories’ are indeed potent. Cellular memory Our body cells store every single fractional moment of our experiences. Every thought that we think, every emotion that we feel, and every sensory experience that we have, is registered and stored in our cells in a seamless continuum. These memories are continuously transferred to the new cells. The cumulative cellular memories create various nuances of our present personality, including our unique illnesses. How can we get rid of these stored memories that keep ‘infecting’ the brand new cells? How do we make this ‘conscious shift’? The understanding that we are all made of ‘condensed, materialised thoughts’ tells us that the power to shift also lies within our thoughts. Brandon Bays teaches people how to self-heal without drugs Louise Hay, an influential figure in the self-help movement, lays great emphasis on the power of thoughts. She was given a chance to put her philosophy into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer. That is when she developed an intensive programme of affirmations, visualisations, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy for herself; and within six months, she was completely healed. She explains that our beliefs and ideas about ourselves are often the cause of our emotional problems and physical maladies. When we change our thinking, our lives get better. Her famous quote is, “Love yourself enough to heal your life.” In her cutting edge transformational and healing work, called The Journey, internationally acclaimed author, Brandon Bays, teaches how to heal ourselves of all ills; and she should know what she is talking about. In 1992, Brandon was diagnosed with a basket-ball sized uterine tumour. She decided to instinctively listen to her body wisdom and put into practice all she had learnt about nutrition, meditation, guided visualisations, and herbology. To everyone’s surprise she completely healed herself in six-and-a-half weeks, without any drugs, surgery or pain.Singapore-based Anita Moorjani has written a book titled Dying to be Meabout her extraordinary healing experience. In 2002, Anita was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but a fascinating and moving near-death experience in 2006 and her subsequent healing changed her perspective on health and life. Now, she teaches that our inner world (consciousness) is our primary reality. In a televised interview, Anita asserts, “When I gave myself the permission to love myself enough to let the real, magnificent me come through, my body healed just like that. But this choice has to be made out of love and not out of attachments.” Besides these well-known celebrities, there are many people from all walks of life who have healed themselves from various minor and major illnesses and who continue to evolve their own special techniques of healing. A Mumbai-based writer has found just one such formula. She Brandon was diagnosed with a basket-ball sized uterine tumour. To everyone’s surprise she completely healed herself in six-and-a-half weeks, without any drugs, surgery or pain. says, “I have an asthma condition. Each time I have chest congestion, I simply bring my awareness to that spot and immediately the phlegm comes up for release. For the last few months I have also been affirming that my body is whole, perfect, and complete. I have shifted focus from ‘resisting the illness’ to ‘appreciating the healthy body’. Even though the symptoms have not fully cleared up, I am hundred per cent certain that this is the only way to go.” Healing the uterus Naini, a dentist from Kanpur, had developed a uterine fibroid when she was three months pregnant. She says, “The news of the fibroid shook me completely. Being pregnant, I couldn’t even take any medicine. I started meditating, connecting with my baby and healing myself. Before that, I used to try and guess my child’s gender; but in my meditation I was told that this fibroid was my b
