When I first tried to explain what is energy healing many years ago, I had no logical (or illogical, for that matter) explanation. I had nothing to wrap my mind around. It took a couple of neuroscience classes while earning a B.S. in psychology for me to understand energy healing in a way that I could adequately explain it that made any sense.
Before I share my findings, however, it's helpful to understand a few things: 1) that everything in life is made up of energy; 2) that energy is in constant motion; 3) that this motion is vibration; 4) that everything vibrates at a different rate; and 5) that energy cannot be destroyed, only transformed.
With that said....
At the cell membrane exists a naturally occurring electrical charge that is created simply as a result of the chemicals that are present on both the outside and inside of the cell membrane. When the cell is at rest (called 'resting potential'), this charge is minute. Cellular activity changes the chemicals surrounding the cell membrane thereby increasing the electrical charge of the cell. Eventually, the electrical charge reaches a threshold point creating an 'action potential'. This action potential stimulates the release of neurosubstances in neurons which then generates a cascade of additional neural activity that can influence our DNA.
Simply put, energy healing influences the electrical charge at the cell membrane.
Because our bodies are designed to heal themselves, energy healing is a natural, non-invasive treatment that supports this natural ability.
