The Biofield

The biofield is a word about which you are going to hear a great deal in the years to come. It is a term that we use for the organizing Informational Matrix, which is the underlying field of life itself. If you are not functioning at your best, or if you’re ill, this means your Informational Matrix or as the ancients called it, your Inner Light is being hidden and not expressing itself. We decided upon this new term several years ago because it best explained our observations. The Matrix underlies the energy fields of the body, which themselves support molecular and biological processes. I’ve spent a lot of time talking about this issue in Healing, Meaning and Purpose.

Information is a form of energy. But when we use the term “energy,” I must issue a word of caution. The term itself is fuzzy, conveying multiple meanings, with many people discussing “energies” and “vibrations” with little clarity. There is a potent reason why this matters: When healers only visualize energy flowing from them into a receiver, like water flowing from a pipe, they are limiting what they can do to help. When we use self-healing, it is essential to use the bigger idea of the Informational Matrix to help us focus our mind and our attention. Yes, there is a flow of “energy:” I can see and feel it, as can thousands of other people. I can train most people to sense it within an hour, and it can probably be photographed. But the energy flow is secondary to a correction in the Informational Matrix.

For centuries, most of the traditional forms of healing have relied upon the notion that there is a “Vital Energy,” an “Essence,” a “Life Force,” forming the basis for a person’s health and healing. Many scientists around the world are now re-investigating this life force, now re-labeled the biofield, or, as we prefer it, the Informational Matrix. A recent paper in a prestigious journal has advocated the importance of integrating “energetic” therapies into cancer care. Here are just seven recent and very interesting papers on this incredibly important subject: 1. 2.3. 4.5. 6.7.
