A New Perspective on Healing
Today’s healthcare system is in a critical phase of transition. The real issue of unaffordable healthcare costs needs to be addressed, but how can we do so without questioning the foundational premises of healing? How do we heal?
I will never forget a particular consultation early on in my rural medical practice. One day, a lady with a lot of stature and confidence walked into my office. She was the wife of a farmer and her language was straight and unequivocal. She confidently strode in and sat solidly down in the consultation chair, looked directly into my eyes and said, “Doctor, you are not the one who heals here, the Lord is the one.”
Honestly, I did not know what to do with this affirmation at the time, but continued to reflect on it. Later on in my career, I was invited to a convention in Switzerland where doctors from all over the world came together to explore one main question: “Who heals?” There were as many answers to that question as there were participants. Years later, as I watched a sci-fi movie called K-Pax, I was struck by a passage spoken by the main character: “For your information every being has the capacity to cure themselves”.
So who does the healing? What the lady who had walked into my office expressed to me years ago, is what many of our ancestors have known for generations. There is another unseen element involved in healing that goes beyond the doctor’s prescription. Today, quantum physicists such as Dr. Goswami describe this unseen element as consciousness. He purports that consciousness as “the ground of all being” is the source from which healing comes.
Conventional medicine has had a pretention of having solved the mystery of healing. In doing so, it has created a costly healthcare system, based on a symptomatic approach, where pharmaceuticals and surgical techniques have been empowered as the primary methods of healing. We now have to go deeper into our investigation to realize, that factors related to healing need to be reconsidered from a totally new perspective. For example: “How can we restore the power of healing back into the hands of the patient?” “How can we give them the ability to heal and hope for them to reach their full potentiality for wellness?”
One way we can do this is by educating people on how to access the art of healing from within through consciousness. This type of knowledge could be made accessible to everyone and taught as part of a medical school curriculum. Doctors and other healthcare providers could then pass this information on to their patients to make them aware of how they can contribute to their own healing. This is one component of the training now being offered to healthcare professionals in Integrative Quantum Medicine at Quantum University.

This is the direction we are moving in. Health is not found outside of us, but within our consciousness.
Well they need to expidite the training for Dr’s. because mine told me he had NEVER seen anyone as bad as me get well. I told him to “keep watching!”
