A recent guest, biologist Sondra Barrett, Ph.D., and author of Secrets of Your Cells: Discovering Your Body’s Inner Intelligence had this to say about New Dimensions:
“What is essential about New Dimensions is the broad range of subjects
and that you can trust the caliber of guests.
For decades it has been a most respected place to listen.”
She gave us permission to reprint a recent essay she wrote for her newsletter below.
With a growing emphasis on energy medicine and quantum healing, whatever that is, I thought it could be useful to get a look at what kind of energy we could be talking about.
First of all, everything is energy. Our cells and molecules craft it, share it and require it for their livelihood. The photomicrograph on the right is of the energy-storing molecule Creatine Phosphate, also known as “May the force be with you.” We humans experience energy as tension, anxiety, fatigue, stress, love, empathy, compassion, and gratitude just to name a few kinds of energy. And yet there’s even more — the field of energy that we broadcast with our body, mind and emotions, our affection or distaste.
If we imagine that our perspective affects every level of our own energy then we can be empowered to ask what am I sending out to my relatives, my friends, my community and myself. It is so easy to get distracted by our own thoughts without considering the consequences yet what if we became a little more aware, would we be healthier, happier, more content?
Consider that nagging criticism of a friend, that internal voice – how does that energy support you or your friend. What about the pattern of a few drinks at night to calm yourself, how does that impact your energy-restoring sleep? And just listen to some happy music, is your energy or mood elevated?
We have so many ways we can restore our energy, our mood, our spirit. Just think, your cells know how to help. Tune in, awaken more to what helps your spirit soar. Here are two links for Sondra that you might enjoy:
