Quantum Healing and Consciousness

Consciousness is a force that most of us undervalue. Generally we do not focus our inner awareness or use its real power, even in the most difficult moments of crisis. That may account for why “miracle” cures are greeted with a mixture of awe, disbelief, and reverence. Yet, everyone possesses consciousness. Perhaps these miracles are extensions of normal abilities.

What marks a survivor as opposed to a non-survivor? Apparently the successful patients have learned to motivate their own healing, and the most successful have gone much further than that. They have found the secret of quantum healing. They are the geniuses of the mind-body connection.

Modern science cannot even begin to duplicate their cures, because no cure that relies on drugs or surgery is so precisely timed, so beautifully coordinated, so benign and free of side effects, so effortless as theirs. Their ability springs from a level so deep that you cannot go any deeper. If we knew what their brains were doing to motivate their bodies, we would have the basic unit of the healing process in our hands.

As yet, medicine has not taken the quantum leap, and the word quantum has no clinical application. Because quantum physics works with ultra-high-speed accelerators, you may think that quantum healing uses radioisotopes or X rays. But that is the opposite of what it means.

The deepest core of the mind-body system is where healing begins. To go there and learn to promote the healing response, you must get past all the grosser levels of the body–cells, tissues, organs, and systems–and arrive at the junction point between mind and matter, the point where consciousness actually starts to have an effect.

Colleen, if science confirms these effects, they will no longer be regarded as magic.

I have been a fan of Sir Roger Penrose for many years. He is the most well renowned mathematician that explains consciousness through quantum mechanics. I like him so much, that I made my own theory out of the idea that consciousness might be in the form of quantum mechanisms opposed to activities in the brain.

My idea is that antimatter is the mirror of this universe, and that antimatter might

be where memory is located.

I think that the subconscious mind and consciousness are located in parallel universes

in the form of antimatter. That makes the spirit and maybe even God all physical, so

basically I could be said to be an atheist, even though I consider myself spiritual.

If you would like to know more, then you can watch a full videopresentation of my

theory on my blog:

When you have experienced healing, you have an open mind about it's powers...

an exciting dialogue happening here, and all for the good - ultimately
Got to agree with Bob C.'s comment that 'name calling' is a destructive form of communication and leads to more 'destructive - name calling' --- which isn't what our goal is here,...
Especially liked Ron G.'s " ... will to learn." injection into this broad subject, of which science, spirit, and all studies apply.
And Elvy S.'s appreciation of scientific research and discoveries are exciting as well. And as a college grad myself, I always got A's in my science classes. Love to study,....
What I take from the conglomerate of all these perspectives put together is that we have increasing hope for cures of mental and physical illness, cultural and social maladies, economic and organizational dilemmas, and even to our personal and public relationships - we can also gain better understanding and true compassion for each other and our Selves.
Ron G. - says: "It all points to what a marvel all creation is...including us"
Who would want anything else,.... ?

Miacid T. it is ironic too. as some traits of some mental illesses are heavy on "odd beliefs and magical thinking". quantium healing can cure schizotypical personality disorder? or would that be the reason someone will believe in it.

I am feeling much like a human now. someone go experment on yourself for me.

is quantum healing just a sciencey way of saying "magic"?

@Miacid: While I share some of your criticisms of Dr. Chopra's article, I would try to avoid the crude name-calling here. There is nothing constructive in it for anyone.

That said, I agree with you that science has done much to improve the lives of people, including enhancing women's control over their own bodies.

While I think there is much to be gained from studying the mind-body connection and its role in healing, I consider the discovery process ill-served by terms like "quantum healing" that appear to conflate a specific scientific discovery about electron energy levels with the healing power of attitude, thought, and meditation. There may be some connection to be found there, but I'm not convinced that Dr. Chopra has found it or that he has correctly labeled it much less described it. I find the phrase "quantum healing" embarrassingly awkward coming from a scientist. (Dr. Chopra is an MD, a board-certified endocrinologist, and a former medical school instructor.)

@ Bob C. I am so glad that someone seems to understand the beauty of science. I get tremendous joy looking at the night sky, or the rainbow, or cloud formations, and a great deal of that joy comes from understanding a great deal. The excitement I feel as I contemplate the process of evolution and how diversity developed is invigorating. It's been a fun and rewarding discussion. Thanks.
