In cellular structure, scientists recognise that all living cells contain a formula called DNA, which is the map as well as a formula to generate a living organism. DNA is a function of the bio-energetic field. Humans are constructed of energy at the cellular level and therefore have a definite energy field. The physical body is the densest component of many interactive energy fields. Each of these fields is connected to the physical cellular structure through a complex network of energy threads. This field is known as the Human Energy Field. Findings by scientists and biologists prove that not only is everything made of energy, but that we also continually trade either positive or negative energy. Our very being as well as our thoughts has an impact on those around us, not just our actions. It was Jung who first came up with the idea of a collective unconscious, an unconscious that exists outside the individual’s own personal experience. This may be the same energy field that shamans use to access knowledge in their trancelike states. Sheldrake’s theory (1986) explains these phenomenon, as collective belief patterns that form what he calls “morphogenetic fields”, which are actually habits of thought, and these maintain a relative permanence through what he calls “morphic resonance”, i.e. people agreeing with the belief add strength to the pattern and it becomes fixed. This theory finds support in Bohm’s theory of universal flux and the notion of an undivided wholeness of the universe. Concepts such as energy and the collective unconscious do not respond to the laws of traditional science yet find a resonance with the discoveries of the new science, quantum physics. These ideas about energy and the flow of energy are useful concepts with which to study human interactions and therefore organisational behaviour. Slowly we are coming to the realisation that there is no real contradiction between the ancient concept of a universal energy, from which all life flows, and scientific knowledge. As Western scientific thinking has not previously acknowledged the existence of energy fields, there is limited research done in this area. More recently, Western scientists are directing their attention toward the study of these previously unrecognized structures and they are now finding their eventual validation with the evolution of subtle-energy technologies with can measure their existence and functions. For now we are still largely dependent on Eastern thinking to explain concepts such as energy centres. To read more, go to: http://www.goldfish-consulting.co.za/blog/what-human-energy
