Ask Andrea: Scientific Findings
What are the latest scientific findings that support the energetic approach to life?
There have been many in recent years. It’s been a little like finding out the world is not flat. For example, we thought the brain was pre-determined and static and now we know that the brain is “neuroplastic”. It actually develops according to how we use it. The implications of that are profound. We have known for a long time that meditation is very beneficial for calming the mind and bringing brain hemispheric coherence.
Scientists are unable to find a beginning or end to matter and now the atom and electrons and protons and neutrons are no longer the smallest bits of matter…particles are now the smallest known parts of matter and they are more like light than matter as we have know it. Scientists have also be able to track the effects of group and world meditations on the Earths energy aura. There is much more acknowledgement of the universal energy as being the “glue” of the Universe.
Also we have discovered that how we think and act actually can change our DNA – another discovery with profound implications. Why this is important is that “spiritual practices” such as prayer, yoga, meditation and self inquiry actually do change us in ways we desire and reveal and connect us to our true identity as energy and light beings. Science Spirituality are no longer at opposite ends of the spectrum of understanding the world and ourselves. Throughout my book, Light Through the Keyhole – The Power to Heal Life and Live Joy, I share my personal story and experiences that have led me to this healing work being able to benefit by the amazing times in which we live.
