Human Energy Systems
The energy systems of human beings are remarkable as can be observed in people in all walks of life. Humans are definitely energetic and it is because this energy exists in different forms it allows us to manipulate and direct the energy to our advantage. Everything is energy, and because of the different forms of this energy, we have to learn how to use them in different ways. Having a clear understanding of how energy actually works, we need to understand the components that allow us to use energy.
Genetics and energy are the starting point for any investigation into human function and yet there are also at least two other primary areas of we need to understand before we can say we understand how energy functions in humans. Time and space are needed to understand human function. We have to understand the relationship we have to time and space and energy and genetics. These four elements, time, space, energy and genetics act on us within a set of genetic limitations.
In kinesiology treatment terms, energy and genetics combine to form a unique individual who progresses through life in a physical place through a period of time. If energy, genetics and time or space were integrated in such a way to support everything we want to do at a conscious and subconscious level, we would be able to achieve anything we want. The question then, is what maintains the level of integration we need to achieve the things we want?
Also our subconscious what keeps our subconscious working in an integrated way? Our subconscious gives us the ability to integrate all the learning, inherited qualities, experiences and relationships we have in a single harmonious neurological marvel. This integrative ability has been recognized in human behaviour and, depending on the prevailing beliefs at the time, has been given different names.
So, there are four basic and necessary elements: energy, genetics, time and space, and the ability to integrate all of these together – in a state of consciousness we can call awareness. The more we study these elements in kinesiology, we find we can model them in the form of the Model of Universal Principles. In studying this Model, you will discover that these four references are extremely important for finding out the conflicts we tend endure through ignorance of how we really operate.
Challenges (or disruptions) to these elements, energy, genetics, time and space, can prove significant in terms of the needs for our human systems to function successfully within our lifetime. Our nervous system, blood systems, heart and lungs, and other organs face constant daily challenges like food additives, poisons, bacteria and so on. While all this is going on we must maintain, through our autonomic nervous systems and or our sub-conscious, the ability to adapt to those challenges by modifying or in many ways. What makes these elements significant in disease and health problems are our defences, suppressions and behaviours our subconscious manipulates within us often unbeknown to our awareness. This then results in limitations to our experiences and our ability to create new relationships throughout our lives.
Adaption of the human body is a remarkable mechanism, a device with many sophisticated mechanisms at its service. Even with this highly developed flexibility, we are still only able to adapt as well as our experience has taught us. This means that we all have a learned set of responses to life that may suit our needs in some circumstances but not in others. By making a limited number of habitual adaptive responses, we can too easily start to restrict our adaption and hence create health risks for ourselves.
