Bruce Lipton on Energy Healing & Quantum Entanglement

I just ran across this great article at Huffington Post where Bruce Lipton explains Energy Healing, how & why it works, quantum entanglement, and why distance healing works. Bruce is a cell biologist & was a prof at NIH, Stanford, and U Wisconsin (among other places). 

If your analytical side is as strong as mine (I'm also trained as a biologist), you look for these gems that help explain what your "woo woo" side already accepts and has witnessed. :)


Q: Is it possible to scientifically explain energy healing?

Bruce Lipton:
 Absolutely. There's a concept in quantum physics called "entanglement," which is when one energy source entangles with another so that they interfere with each other. This interference can be positive and harmonious, as with energy healing, or it can be negative.
Physicist Amit Goswami published an article in a physics journal showing that entanglement affects people. He had two people meditate together and then separated them into two chambers where they couldn't see or hear one another. When one person had a light strobed by his eye, it caused the firing of a certain frequency in the brain. Remarkably, at the same moment, the other person's brain also fired, even though he never saw the light. This proves what we intuitively knew, that the energies of people can affect one another.
Q: What exactly happens in an energy healing session, then?

Bruce Lipton:
 What Goswami's study demonstrated is that when two people become entangled, one person will conform to the energy of the other person. When one of them is a healer whose cells are vibrating at a higher level, the client's cells become entangled, and their energy is lifted. That's why that old saying, "physician heal thyself," is so important, even though most don't understand it: If the physician's energy is going to influence or, in scientific terms, "entrain" the patient's, the doctor's must be higher.
Q: So you have to change the environment -- including your thoughts -- if you want healing to be sustained?

Bruce Lipton:
 Yes. If your environment keeps draining your energy, it's like having a leaky bank account, where any money you're putting into the bank, such as by seeing an energy healer, keeps slipping out. You have to change your environment, including any harmful beliefs, before the energy can stay high.
Q: What about healing over a long distance? That's a hard concept for people -- including me -- to wrap our heads around.
Bruce Lipton: It's freaky, but it works, because energy isn't limited to a set spatial distance.
