Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year everyone! And welcome to the beginning of another exciting and busy year of events, activities, newsletters and of course the annual Biological Medicine Tour program to Germany.

I have to admit that this past year has had more than it’s share of adventure and disruption and I’m really looking forward to getting everything back into routine and actually getting caught up after all the changes. Between the move last summer, the Germany Tour program in the Fall and then the end of year holidays, it has been a challenge to keep everything up to date. But, we’re almost there and I am expecting to be able to get back into our regular mid-month publication schedule for “The Bridge” newsletter.

However – speaking of disruptions these first few weeks of 2018 have displayed their own challenges. We already knew our computer system was getting old, and were planning to replace it piece by piece over the coming year. Well, I truly believe computers have their own minds and agendas. First my computer with all the translation software and accounting went “unstable” followed by Elaine’s usually stable machine “flickering”. Bringing in our trusty computer guru Heather, all she could do was shake her head. Our operating system was tooooo old, our drives on our server were failing and if mine had crashed again she would not have been able to recover it. Soooo . . . new computers, new servers, new routers, new connections, and anything else from stem to stern has been ordered and installed. As of this morning all of our specialized software has been reinstalled and we are fully operational – but, boy does VISA ever love Carolyn.

To continue the tale (hopefully without boring you too much but explaining why we were totally without phone or internet for nearly a week), sometime during the weekend prior to installation of the new computer system our very antiquated phone system that has been moved between three different office locations decided to also give up the ghost. Two days into installing the computers we realized that all phone lines were totally dead. Gasp!! Frantic calls by cell phone to the phone tech people at least netted us a temporary fix to keep us functioning, and the new system will be installed sometime mid- to end of February. Oh joy – at least Carolyn gets points on her VISA. Phones will likely go down for at least one day during installation, but we’ll try to let you know in advance by email and Facebook.

In view of these huge mostly unexpected infrastructure expenses during the first part of the year, I truly and gratefully want to thank those docs who stepped up and sent donations to help us cover this financially. Your donations will go directly and fully to this project. Within the next few days Elaine will be issuing your donation receipts showing our tax and corporate non-profit registration numbers, and they should be fully tax deductible. We send our heartfelt thanks to all who will and have participated, and we will pay it forward.

Moving on to this first 2018 Issue, this year I’ve decided to forego the usual New Year’s business and practical pep talk. I know, I can hear you all sighing with relief in the background. But, you’re not getting away without some thought provoking inspiration and challenge . . .

For me personally the Holiday Season this year was a time of quiet reflection, rest and that all important family time with my Mom. For those of you who know her she will be turning 97 in a few months, still takes care of me (supper ready when I get home from work and so on) and remains my rock and mentor. This time of recuperation and relaxation has been a blessing gratefully received. As Christians we enjoyed the full trappings of Christmas and participated in the many religious and secular activities of the season.

In our congregation we hear the Crystal Bowls in every service along with numerous other musical modalities. And of course, music in various forms is a part of most religious services regardless of your faith. Recently while preparing to exit a Sunday service, several ladies from our congregation approached our minister asking about why we use the Crystal Bowls. His response, quoted below, set me to thinking and writing and considering our work as healers.

The Philosophy Behind the Quartz Crystal Bowls

One constant in the Universe is that everything has a vibration. That is the theory behind how playing Quartz Crystal Bowls during meditation encourages healing. The theory is that once an egg is fertilized, it begins to divide; two then four then eight then sixteen cells and onward. Eventually the cells begin to differentiate and to become skin, organs, and all the other parts of the body. It is thought that as this begins the cells begin to vibrate at wavelengths unique to that part of the body. As we live life many things can put us out of balance, out of tune. The cells are not vibrating at their optimal frequency for that part of the body.

If part of the body is out of tune when the Crystal Bowls are played those cells will sense a dissonance and want to get back in tune. Like when a choir first sings a single note there may be many notes close but not in tune with each other. After two or three times singing one note the people will tune to each other.

After a time, the cells will match the note being played and come back into tune allowing the body parts to be in optimal vibration for the cells and the body can begin to heal.

For example, when we are singing [hymns in church], especially in a group the sound is around us as well as vibrating in your vocal cords and resonating in our lungs and other cavities of the body. After a choir practice people feel energized even if they were tired before they started. Using this theory, it should be possible in a concert or worship experience to balance everyone in attendance. Music can encourage optimal health.

Hmmmm . . . And . . .

  • Ever noticed how many of us who are involved with Biological and Complementary Medicine are – or were – musicians?
  • As practitioners, how are we approaching our practices today? Are we thinking about the whole person – body, mind and spirit? All three need to be nourished and all three need to be in resonance for successful therapy. Right?
  • Have we gotten caught up in the latest method being touted in the media or by a marketing company out there pushing for big bucks in this industry?
  • Are we looking at ever smaller and more specific aspects of our patient’s health issues – the frequency of the liver is xxx so let’s treat the liver with xxx frequency. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying this kind of approach doesn’t work, but have we bothered to look and see if frequency xxx resonates with this particular patient’s liver, or better yet does it resonate with him as a whole energetic being?

Okay, I’ll stop. These are open ended and rhetorical questions. But this is a wakeup call to be sure when I think of this kind of healing message in relation to the spirituality of our patients. This is a clear challenge to us as healers to ensure that we maintain the balance and harmonious resonance of the triumvirate representing the whole of the energetic being. These are concepts that we need to consider as individuals. But they are also concepts we need to look at and consider on a regular basis in our ongoing efforts to treat these energetic beings we call “Patients”.

Going back to basics. Going back to the underlying precepts of our healing methods seemed like an important step for me as I moved forward into this New Year 2018. Following is an article that I have adapted from one of my recent lectures on Resonance. I’m not a physicist nor a philosopher (and I truly don’t believe that as practitioners we need that level of understanding) and my research for this lecture was based on a desire to understand the underlying concepts on a fundamental level of true energetic, wholistic and complementary medicine.

I challenge you to continue this discussion. I look forward to hearing your understandings and thoughts. Let us make a resolution to remember that we must always seek resonance for each individual patient.
