Presentation Transcript

Energy psychology


Dr. Michael Davis

Energy psychology defined


  • “Energy Psychology (EP) is a family of evidence supported modalities that balance, restore and improve human functioning by combining physical interventions(using the acupuncture system, the chakras and other ancient systems of healing) with modern cognitive interventions such as imagery-based exposure therapy.”

    Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology

Say what

Say What?

  • Energy Psychology rejects the physical materialism of classical science.

  • Energy Psychology embraces the latest understandings of quantum physics and consciousness studies.

  • Energy Psychology works at the level of the unconscious mind through the field and reduces stress, chronic pain, and emotional trauma.

The field

The “Field?”

  • “What we experience with our limited senses as matter is actually organized fields of energy. Therefore what is “real” is not matter but fields. As Einstein put it, ‘The field is the only reality.’”

  • “We are blind to more than 99.999 percent of the light that actually exists in the universe.”

    Gary E. Schwartz, The Energy Healing Experiments (University of Arizona)

Subtle energies

Subtle Energies

  • “My research shows that human energy fields display a continuum. The extremely low frequencies (ELF), are directly involved with life’s biological processes. The extremely high frequency (EHF) patterns ally with the mind-field and awareness. The general pattern of ELF is similar for all people, while the EHF reveals a personal signature of emotional patterning for each person.”

    Valerie Hunt, Infinite Mind

The quantum problem

The Quantum Problem

  • “It is not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to the consciousness.”

    Nobel Laureate Eugene Wigner

  • “This [uncertainty principle] seems to deny the existence of a physically real world independent of our observation of it.”

    Rosenblum & Kuttner, Quantum Enigma

The consciousness project

The Consciousness Project

  • “Objective science has failed to explain how consciousness arose from matter. The consciousness tradition has yet to explain how mind could create matter. Two worldviews depend on one of these explanations being true. Until we can show how molecules learned to think or how thoughts create molecules, the full truth about Nature and reality will remain hidden.”

    Deepak Chopra, MD

The global consciousness project

The Global Consciousness Project

  • “Quantum event based random number generators (RNGs) produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeroes and ones. But when a great event synchronizes the feelings of millions of people, our network of RNGs becomes subtly structured. The probability is less than one in a billion that the effect is due to chance.”

Global coherence

Global Coherence

  • Global Coherence Initiative – measuring changes in magnetic filed of earth caused by events.

The conscious field

The Conscious Field

  • “But thought itself can only be understood as a field regardless of where you think it originated – from brain cells or from the mind field… And although the brain cells are activated to remember and respond, the active thinking experience is in the field.”

    Hunt, Infinite Mind

Collective consciousness

Collective Consciousness

  • Group meditation and prayer lowered the violent crime rate in New York City in 1993!

  • “The maximum decrease was 23.3% when the size of the group was largest {4000} during the final week of the project. The statistical probability that this result could reflect chance variation in crime levels was less than 2 in 1 billion.”

Observer effect

Observer Effect

  • The well-established Observer Effect holds that the very act of observation collapses matter.

  • Matter can either be a wave or a particle, but not both at the same time (particle potentiality).

  • It “chooses” one or the other upon observation.



  • Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland win the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics for designing ingenious systems to “trick” subatomic particles into being oblivious to observation.

  • They proved independently that particles really are in TWO places at once!

  • Implications for “Science?” Education? Health?

Libet s short delay

Libet’s Short Delay

  • How long between when one thinks to move and the resulting movement occurs?


  • Whose “mind” is it?

It gets worse



The heart brain

The “Heart” Brain

  • “Thinking” neurons fill the heart.

  • Heart activity drives the brain, not vice-versa.

  • Heart has significantly larger field.

  • Transplants of personality!

Predicting the future

Predicting the Future

  • Heart intuitively predicts future emotional stimuli!

  • Up to 7 seconds prior to a random stimuli, the heart knows whether negative or positive.

  • Over 2400 trials by HeartMath Institute

Tai chi chih

Tai Chi Chih

  • Increases “chi” through movement and manipulation of the subtle energies.

  • Chi resides in the bones and kidneys.

  • Chi journeys through the body via acupuncture meridians.

  • “… might well be called medication in motion….” Harvard Medical Letter

  • Direct evidence of Energy Psychology.





  • Examples – braille, half-a-brain & anesthesia

  • Everything we eat, say, think or do physically alters our brain.

  • Rewiring occurs in as little as 48 hours


    Dr. Norman Doidge, The Brain That Changes Itself

What goes in

What Goes in…

  • Subconscious mind is nearly fully-formed by age 5!

  • You are your culture, your community, your parents… without even knowing it.

  • Programming:

Too subtle

Too Subtle?

  • Demonstrations

  • Do we really have an energy field?

  • Can it easily be impacted by my thoughts?

  • Does this field influence my mental, emotional, or physical state?

  • Can it be manipulated by others independent of me?

Self help strategies

Self-Help Strategies

  • KIRTAN KRIYA - Ancient meditation technique

  • 12 minutes per day increased memory by 10% in 8 weeks! Cerebral blood flow and mood altered, as well as increase in length of telomeres.

Self help cont d

Self-Help, cont’d

  • Yawning - Fake it until you make it!

  • Smile, even if you don’t mean it

  • Faith, defined as hope, optimism, positive thinking. Not religion (especially negative beliefs)

  • Dialogue with others on lofty matters w/o conflict

  • Exercise/Fish Oil
