Communicating at the Speed of Light
Is the human body the first wireless device?
That's what I was thinking as I listened to Jim Oschman, a scientist and researcher, speak at a small gathering in Washington, DC on May 27. He reminded the group that as human beings we radiate electromagnetic waves, the same medium that carries information through space to cell phones, Wi-Fi, radio and TV. Common medical tests such as the EKG and EEG measure electromagnetic activity in the heart and brain. Oschman, however, described this kind of communication at the level of our cells.
“Light is very important to our health,” said Oschman at the start of the talk. “Light in the outer world exists on the visible end of the electromagnetic spectrum, and of course we need it for survival. ‘Light’ within the body is produced by the continual vibration of cells. Every molecule has a frequency, wave length and speed that can be measured. That is how substances are identified by scientists.”
Vibratory communication in the body plays a big role in our health because it regulates cells. "There are two models for cell regulation,” said Oschman. “One is the lock and key model, which says that there are chemical messengers in the body and that cells communicate when the molecules of one cell fit into an opening in another cell. I think that’s incomplete, because it’s too slow.
“There is another model to consider, that of an electromagnetic signal, which means cells communicate by sending vibratory signals. Instead of a lock and key, they communicate by resonating with each other.”
It may be invisible, it may be subtle, but it is fast. Communication through electromagnetic resonance takes place at the speed of light, thousands of times faster than through chemical messengers. Watch a dancer or athlete perform and you will see vibratory communication at work. When practiced with intention and repetition, these performers get into “the flow”. What's happening, suggests Oschman, is that cells enter a state of optimal communication, resulting in "systemic cooperation".
Why is this important?
Anyone interested in creating change in the body or mind will want to find their own way into “flow” so they can influence cell vibration to take on a healthy pattern. One way to begin is by getting into a relaxed, alert state and then finding the body’s natural rhythm through the breath or the heartbeat. Then you can influence cellular vibration through touch, words or images.
In his book Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis, Oschman describes research that measured energy coming from the hands of practitioners. When they entered the relaxed, alert state there was a significant increase in energy output, consistent with the mechanical current used for jump starting tissue regeneration. Another idea to consider is how the electromagnetic waves we radiate also carry information. This too can be an influencing factor, especially if we fine tune ourselves to be good senders and receivers.
We can all develop these qualities in order to help ourselves and those we care about. Oschman concluded the evening’s discussion with this advice: “We are not limited beings. However, we can’t do things if we believe we can’t do them. But that’s just a matter of changing our minds.” To make practical use of the research into energetic communication we need some basic training, practice with each other and a community of support.
Learn to communicate through touch
Touch is a bridge that links the physical and energetic aspects of the body; the particles and waves!
Barbara Goldschmidt is planning a series of classes entitled “Massage for Wholistic Family Care” which will include techniques for getting into the relaxed-alert state, exercises to sensitize the hands for both giving and receiving, and protocols for common needs. Stay tuned for dates and locations.
