Creativity in the Vital Body
Quantum healing usually refers to a creative approach to mind-body medicine. In this lecture, I will show that the creative process can also be used for vital body healing. I will discuss how to stimulate unconscious processing for the vital body and achieve quantum leaps of healing. I will also discuss awakening the heart and preventing certain types of cancer.
Before the quantum world view came along, we could not imagine a way of describing the vital body without the criticism of dualism. If you are positing that life energy is vital energy, then the problem is how does the vital body interact with the physical? Quantum physics has solved that problem because even the physical consists of nothing but possibilities for consciousness to choose from. We can say that the archetypes of vital, physical, mental, and even the supramental bodies are all possibilities for consciousness to choose from. So this idea, which I sometimes call Quantum Psycho-Physical Parallelism, is very important to grasp. According to this idea, all four worlds of possibilities exist in the ground of being that consciousness is, and then when consciousness chooses, we call this choice downward causation.
I will lay the groundwork for an understanding of the Vital Body by describing consciousness and how manifestation takes place. I will then discuss how we experience and the four main types of experiences – sensing, feeling, thinking, and intuition – as well as how these four experiences interact, without an exchange of signals or exchange of energy, as contrasted with the ego experiences which are local and rely upon signals.
The Vital Body is crucial for life. I will discuss how living matter and nonliving matter are fundamentally different and introduce the concept of tangled hierarchy in this context, as well as how the non-local morphogenetic field formats biological form, a concept that Rupert Sheldrake made explicit in biology in a book called the New Science of Life, in 1981. I will explain how the vital and physical are correlated and how feeling is a movement of the associated morphogenetic field connected with an organ, and I’ll show how, although we cannot change the physical energies very well with our consciousness, we can affect the energies of the vital with our consciousness.
I will also discuss the concept of chakras as places where there is a major organ and the associated morphogenetic field that is the blueprint of the vital physical organ, the meridians that connect the chakras, and how to nourish them. I will explain why humans have trouble being centered in our bodies, where our wonderful experience connected with the brain is connected with another tangled hierarchy that occurs in the brain itself, which represents the mind. And I will describe why what we mean by feeling is almost never pure feeling. The vital component of our feelings come from our organs, but then thoughts are superimposed, creating the emotions we normally experience.
I will then explain how we can become more sensitive to the body so we can experience the vital energy of our body when an emotion is arising and how we can then play with the chakras, which can produce a tremendous amount of new vital energy medicine that human beings have hardly used. I will also explain how a major source of cancer is an immune system malfunction. and how research is showing that we can support our immune system through a tangled hierarchical connection with the morphogenetic fields by awakening the heart.
Theoretical quantum physicist Dr. Amit Goswami is a retired full professor from the University of Oregon’s Department of Physics where he served from 1968 to 1997. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicates in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, where he also solves the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect.
Dr. Goswami has written several popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness. In Physics of the Soul, Dr. Goswami develops a theory of survival after death and reincarnation. In The Quantum Doctor, Dr. Goswami seeks to integrate both conventional and alternative medicine. In his most recent book, Quantum Economics: Unleashing the Power of an Economics of Consciousness (May 2015) Dr. Goswami focuses on critical issues for a new paradigm in economics and business for the 21st century touching upon the stability and sustainability of the economy and leadership as well as creativity and ethics in business.
