Groundbreaking studies using leading-edge equipment, physics, and processes have developed a new set of subtle energy “mystics”: scientists unveiling the mysteries of the energy system. For this reason, each section of this book emphasizes the scientific evidence substantiating the existence of subtle energy structures. This book offers information on many different treatment methods based on subtle systems. ” What do color and sound have to do with healing? What might taste, gemstones, and numbers mean to the contemporary healer?

In classical physics, a particle, which is a point of mass, can only exist in one place at a time. 3 And some of these places might be other worlds. These kinds of rules, which are revealed through quantum physics, are closer to those that explain subtle energy. They imply that though subtle energies and their structures cannot be seen, they can be shown to exist. The truth is that we know subtle energies exist because, as we will see throughout this book, we can perceive their effects. Historically, the forms of energy behind traditional science and medicine were subtle.

These subtle structures interact between the physical body and the etheric (and other) realms, illuminating higher orders so that we can perceive them from the physical plane. Everything in the universe vibrates, and everything that vibrates imparts or impacts information (the definition of energy). To broaden our discussion of particles and waves to include health, we can define health as the state of an organism with respect to its functioning at any given time. Good health occurs when an organism and its components (like cells and organs) vibrate at optimum functioning; bad health strikes when these components vibrate adversely, challenging the ability to function.
