There are literally countless studies within the realms of parapsychology and quantum physics that make it quite clear that human thought, intention, and overall human consciousness has some sort of relationship with our physical material world. That is not what?s in question, what?s in question is the nature of that relationship and how strong this effect is. There is still so much to discover. Beyond peer-reviewed published studies, there are also some very reputable sources showing that mind influencing matter goes well beyond the quantum scale, but we?ll get to that a little later. Now, a fairly recent study published in SAG Journals entitled Transcriptional Changes In Cancer Cells Induced By Exposure To A Healing Method has examined the effect that healing intention can have on cancer cells in vitro. The goal of the study was to assess if stored or recorded energy has an impact on breast cancer cells by using energy-charged cotton and electromagnetic recording of healers practicing the method. When it comes t o heal ing, t he st udy point s out : Virtually all recorded societies report that certain individuals appear to have the ability to heal. Often times this healing has been associated with spiritual disciples of one sort or another, and the healers themselves have sometimes been accorded a special status within the culture. Healers have utilized various methods of practice, including laying on of hands, prayer and induced altered states of consciousness, to name a few. Hippocrates, referred to this healing as ?the force which flows from many people?s hands. This type of healing has been practiced in various cultures throughout human history, especially in Buddhism. Ancient texts in this area are full of stories of people with exceptional abilities, but what?s even more exciting is that we actually have real-world examples today that can?t really be debunked. For example, when talking about modern-day research, one of the pioneers in this area was a biologist by the name of Bernard Grad of McGill University. In controlled experiments, he discovered that certain people could actually influence the germination of plant seeds, make plants grow at a faster rate, and influence the curing of seeds that had been shocked by saline solution. Furthermore, he was able to measure the ability of healers to reduce goiter and stimulate wound healing in mice. What?s interesting about that particular study is that it wasn?t the only one. A study published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine, as seen in the US National Library of Medicine, demonstrated that a woman with special abilities was able to accelerate the germination of seeds for the purposes of developing a more robust seed stock. Her name was Chulin Sun, and she entered into a deep trance-like state, which sprouted dry seeds in 20 minutes, compared to the normal 3 to 4 days. The Science Is There The cancer study mentioned above goes on to provide more examples: Since Grad?s initial work, there have been innumerable preclinical studies of healing, sometimes categorized by the target of the intended healing. Benor, for example, discusses healing action on enzymes, cells in the laboratory, fungi/yeasts, bacteria, plants, single-cell organisms, and animals that have been subjected to controlled study. The proliferation of healing studies has continued to rise in recent years. At present, there are several peer-reviewed journals devoted exclusively to the burgeoning field of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), publishing both preclinical and controlled clinical studies of healing of a wide variety of conditions. In addition, there is an increasing number of peer-reviewed journals which are not focused exclusively on CAM but that are open to publishing controlled studies in these areas. Scientists used energy-charged cotton to store healing intention from several self-proclaimed ?healers,? and they Page 51
