The connection between consciousness and physical health can no longer be denied. Dr. Amit Goswami, in his blog title, “Quantum Activism For Better Health And Healing,” (http://www.amitgoswami.org/quantum-activism-health-healing/), makes the case for infusing allopathic medicine with consciousness, and I will attempt to provide an (elementary) explanation why.
Matter does not produce consciousness. On the contrary, one could say that consciousness produces matter, but even that presupposes a duality between the two. The rabbit hole goes even deeper. Matter is consciousness as form – they are not two – and the form consciousness takes as matter in any given moment is one possibility out of an endless number thereof. So, for example, your liver is a possibility out of infinite set of possibilities that has taken shape according to a specific design to meet a specific function. On the quantum level it is not a product of some immutable physical law but is, in fact, the way consciousness is choosing to manifest at a particular nexus of time and space. That’s what your liver is.
What does this mean for medicine? It means that no physical intervention, alone, can ever cure a problem. If the pattern creating the problem first exists as a possibility in consciousness, then consciousness is choosing that possibility and, thus, manifesting as an ailing liver. Your ailment, therefore, is the result of a pattern consciousness is choosing. To create a cure a new possibility must be discovered and patterned, otherwise, the ailment will continue to return no matter how many times it is removed.
I believe people remain chronically ill for so long because their consciousness is locked into a pattern and unable to choose a different possibility. While this is just my theory, and while I’m certain may chronically ill people would argue tooth and nail with that, I think that the pattern exists somewhere in their consciousness, even if they are UNconscious of it (and many of us are very unconscious and very many ways).
So, what does it take to change? First the realization that things can be other than they are. Then, it takes the work of progressively uncovering the patterns that make us ill, and consciously replacing them with new ones. (In fact, I’m not even sure we have to be so deliberate in replacing old patterns with new ones, for consciousness is by nature whole and infinite.) It means using our consciousness to change our reality, in this case, our physical health, and this also entails bringing a medicine of consciousness into our typical treatment paradigm. If and when we do I think we will be very delighted with the results.
