“I give thanks that I am fearfully and wonderfully made!” (Psalm 139)
New discoveries in biology, physics and quantum mechanics expand our understanding of what it means to be human on planet earth.
If you could see inside yourself, and project that image microscopically deeper into your physicality, you would discover that the atoms that make up the molecules that make up the cells, etc., are primarily … space! The electrons that orbit the center of the atom can disappear and reappear, and indeed do so continuously.
Einstein said, “Matter is energy. Energy is light. We are all light beings.” This has exciting implications for the notions of healing. Energy healing is expanding in popularity as we come to understand our bodies as forms of energy.
Energy practitioners work with the energy field of the body to enhance the body’s ability to self-heal. Their techniques are effective for stress relief, pain management, recovery from surgery or injury.
The church will be offering Healing Touch on the third Sunday of each month between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. I am a certified healing touch practitioner with seven years’ experience and offer my services free of charge to the community.
