I posted this letter to introduce myself - I’m hoping to meet with sincere researchers.
I deeply respect honest inquiry regardless of where it takes us. This takes a good deal of courage, especially if what we are seeing does not fit our expectations.
Without robust and repeatable empirical evidence, as well as properly conducted scientific studies, there is little reason to accept “energy medicine” as more than a popular belief based on anecdotal reports.
I’ve been in this “fringe” field for 35 years and have written books on the subject. If anyone in Los Angeles would like to see a clear, empirically obvious, visible, measurable, repeatable, and teachable demonstration that consciousness affects the outer world, I’d be happy to present this. It is easy to allow suggestion to influence people, but a good experiment must remove psychological factors.
I could easily demonstrate pain reduction, but those experiments take a lot of time to set up properly and establish adequate controls. Consider a completely different test:
Professionals who do postural analysis agree that the vast majority of people have a moderate to dramatic twist in their pelvis. That is, when standing, most people have their left hip higher than their right in the front, and their right higher than their left in the back. This can be seen in seconds by trained professionals, noticing roughly a 6 to 14 degree tilt. (At first glance this seems impossible when considering the pelvic girdle. However, there is a certain amount of freedom or swing between left and right sides of the pelvic bones that allow us to walk.)
The way this pelvic twist is addressed by chiropractors is to lay a person on their side and apply force in two directions. Unfortunately this twist almost always returns in a few days. There is no evidence that this twist ever corrects itself over time or especially while a person is standing.
I’d like to demonstrate that this twist can be removed when I simply meditate for about 10 seconds without touching the person, and without the use of suggestion. People can be as skeptical or hostile as they like, and it still works. From my experience, the phenomenon works close to 100% of the time; however there are a few exceptions were people only improve about 50%. Unlike a chiropractic adjustment, this change appears to last months or years in most cases. To remove the possibility of suggestion, I ask the subjects if I can study them before I work. I’ll have already done the adjustment while I’m looking at them. To further remove the possibility of suggestion, I’m happy to do the sessions over Skype, so I can see the subject, but they don’t need to know I’m there.
When I do this kind of demonstration, I’d require experienced professionals who know how to measure posture, since inexperienced or hostile witnesses will bias their observations.
Please suggest people I might contact. I’m finding it difficult to show this to scientists who “know” how truly stupid this sounds. As Arthur C. Clarke said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” What I’m showing is not magic, but a basic human skill that I’ve already taught thousands of people to do by shifting the focus of their awareness.
