Healing Magic of Attunement

     In all my fifty years as a physician, I have not found anything more magical than attunement.  I could spend hours holding a focused current of love over the crown chakra and the pineal gland. Sometimes this is all I do for fifteen to twenty  minutes while sharing attunement with someone long-distance.  I simply bring the fingers of my right hand together to focus a current over the tip of my left thumb as though my thumb were the head of the person.  I have found long-distance attunement to be powerfully intense and fruitful in terms of healing and transformation, perhaps even more so than when the person is present physically.Touching into one’s energetic field and core essence in this way is a very sacred and profoundly healing experience.  

I speak of these two aspects of our being as though they were separate.  In reality they are as one as the sunshine is with its source in the sun and the rainbow is with the white ray of sunshine. . . and, but for an occasionally cloudy day, there would always be sunshine and rainbows to brighten our days.   Inevitably, sunshine and rainbows return as the warmth of the sun evaporates the cold, damp air of the clouds.  

 In a way, that’s what health and disease are, clear and cloudy days within our body-mind and heart.  Attunement brings on the sunshine of love to encompass and enfold the body-mind and heart in an atmosphere of light. . . and more.   The focused current of love that moves during an attunement session resonates at the very core of the individuals sharing attunement,  amplifying the spiritual frequency of that core essence.  It is this intensification of the core current of love within that is the Source of the attunement blessing and healing, as all healing comes from within. 

 We’ve put up a couple of yard signs at the entrance to our health center here in Lake Charles that read: Health. . . Begins Inside. So does disease.  And, just like clouds, disease is transformed by the warmth of love and the flow of life through the body.  All one has to do is dissipate the clouds of discontentment, fear, resentment, guilt and shame that bring on the rains of complaint, criticism and judgement that create dissonance in the body-mind and heart.  Love only will accomplish that with its rainbow frequencies of thankfulness, patience, forgiveness, compassion, understanding, joy, appreciation, and kindness to ourselves and others.  

Living in attunement with love is easy.  Existing under the cloud of discontentment disconnected from love is difficult.  That’s why we have so many difficulties in life.  If you find yourself unable to dissipate your mental and emotional clouds and shake off physical pain and illness, simply remember who you are, a sunbeam of love, throw your shoulders back and smile.  Then break out in hearty laughter at how silly you’ve allowed yourself to be worrying and fussing about trivial things that really don’t matter nearly as much as your health and happiness, life itself.  Attune your heart to the sweet and strong vibration of love.  And if you need help doing that, call me for a long-distance attunement session.  If you’re in the area, come in for an attunement with sound.  Talk about magical!  Attunement with the harmonious sounds of quartz crystal and Tibetan singing bowls is deeply and profoundly healing, and I love sharing such attunements more than anything else I offer as  a holistic healer.

Health is all about coherence, harmony.  Introducing a coherent energy into a dissonant field immediately dispels the dissonance and restores harmony.  And that’s all you have to remember. A wise man once wrote:

We never know how far reaching something we may think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.  It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” (Elbert Hubbard).

That’s because light is coherent coming as it does from Source.  Darkness is nothing but the absence of light.  Likewise, disease is nothing but the absence of health.  Attunement opens a door inside the heart for the outpouring of abundant life, and with abundant life comes health, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Health begins inside.

Here’s to your health and  healing,

The Healing Process: The Cell, Part 2 Energy

ENERGY!  Where does it come from?

We’ve seen how the cell makes protein molecules.  The names of some of these proteins are familiar to us, such as adrenaline, testosterone, estrogen, insulin, cholesterol, dopamine, triglycerides, ATP.  Others are not so familiar, such as collagen, the connective tissue used through the body to hold tissues together.  Then there are countless other proteins found in bones, muscles and hair.  Many do not have names but only numbers for identifying them.  Some are coded as catalyst and messengers to set in motion various events and processes, such as caffeine and “signaling messengers,” to which I’ll dedicate several blog posts later on.

But before we get too much further into our thematic consideration of  the healing process, let’s look at where the cell gets its energy to power its complex machinery.  I’ll call on Dr. Gary Samuelson again to help tell the story as he tells it so well in his booklet, The Science of Healing Revealed . . . New insights into Redox Signaling.

First, let’s view a couple of video clips:   Powering the Cell: Mitochondria (2 min)   Powerhouses of the Cell (1 min)  [Note: video clips are best viewed in full screen mode and using headphones.  To return to the blog, exit full screen mode and then click on the BACK arrow up top left on the screen.]

(Or simply view these embeded videos, although one of them does not have a full screen mode option.)

After viewing these computer animated models of the life and inner workings of the cell, is there any doubt there is a God governing intelligent unfoldment of creation?  Watching these inner “micro machines” of the cell move about in buoyant salty fluid with such grace and certainty, demonstrates the nature of what we’ve come to call the “subtle energy” of life.  Life is in no hurry.  Why should it be?   It is in control of the entire universe, and that’s not going anywhere, has no agenda to accomplish within a “deadline.”  Nor does it use “power or might” to accomplish its work. “By my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts” are the eternal miracles of life accomplished. The subtle energy that empowers our cells is our very lifeline –  and “subtle energy work,” such as attunement and sacred sound healing, is the “wave of the future” in the field of health and healing, as well a lifestyle, simply because it supports the healing process and doesn’t “intervene” with or impose upon the innate wisdom of the body.

Now, on with our lesson for the day . . . .


Almost all of the machinery inside the cell is adapted to use only one type of fuel, namely ATP, providing, providing 95% of the energy necessary to keep this machinery and thus the whole body working. The cell’s fuel, ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) has three high-energy phosphate molecules on one end. They are put together by the burning of simple sugars with oxygen from the blood in a process that is called the “metabolism” of sugar. ATP itself is built up while passing through a complex protein called ATPsynthase. . . .  Most of the ATPsynthase is embedded in the wall of the main energy powerhouse in the cell, the mitochondria. It is in the mitochondria where most of the ATP fuel is manufactured. The ATPsynthase in the mitochondria produces the vast majority of the cell’s fuel, in the form of ATP.

Video clips: ATP Synthesis (1:12),  The Krebs Cycle (0:27)

The mitochondria are interesting objects by themselves, they have their own circular DNA, called “mtDNA,and behave much like bacteria, they divide and reproduce themselves and manufacture some of their own proteins, but they are always under the control of the nucleus; something like domesticated, energy-producing “cattleof the cell. There are anywhere from 10 to 5000 mitochondria in each cell, often comprising up to 50% of the total cells inner volume. Consequently, the mitochondria also consume the lions share of the cellular oxygen in exchange for the ATP fuel they produce.

The importance of ATP cannot be over emphasized; every time your muscles move or a thought runs through your brain, every time you sweat or salivate or look at something, billions upon billions of ATP molecules are being consumed in order to power the process. The chemical reactions powering your cells are blurringly fast on the molecular scale. Most of the complex reactions take place in less than one millionth of a second.


Just like the gas pedal 0n your car, most of the molecular micro machines inside your cells have throttles,called kinases, that control how fast the ATP fuel is consumed by these machines and consequently how fast these little machines operate. ATP is expensive to produce and thus is carefully conserved and used to fuel the most important processes of the cell first. This ATP fuel is also carefully regulated so that no part of the cell receives more than its fair share and ensures that the fuel goes to the place where it is most needed. A few examples of the actual
protein regulators that determine how much ATP fuel is used and where it is used are listed next. The keys to these kinase fuel gateways are determined by a variety of different molecules that are floating around in the neighborhood as well as the presence of oxidants and reductants that will be explained in following chapters.

Pyruvate-Kinase — surprisingly, some of these tiny molecular kinase molecules, like Pyruvate Kinase, actually look like throttle valves that, when activated, physically open up a passage to let the ATP through.

cAMP and cGMP are a few of the hundreds of messenger “keys” that unlock the “fuel gates(Kinases) on the molecular machines so that they can accept the fuel (ATP) that they need to work. These messengers are often released by signals coming from the outside of the cell and regularly unlock the gates that regulate sugar intake and smooth muscle control of the blood vessel dilation. cGMP, for  example, helps open up blood flow and is one of the active ingredients in the popular drug, Viagra.

Ck2a Kinase with IP3 — some kinase gates, especially gates that let through certain metal ions used in muscle control and rapid signaling, are controlled by small molecules like IP3 that hold the fuel gate closed or open.

Video clip:  Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration (3 min 17 sec).   This is a look at the practical, rubber-meets-the-road application of all we’ve just considered.

Aren’t these YouTube video clips entertaining, as well as educational?!  I just love them . . . and I am so thankful to their various creators for making them so freely available on the Web.

I don’t know about you, but I am totally blown away by the biological immensity and complexity of the cell’s anatomy and physiology.   And we’ve only been looking at a single cell’s internal activities.  Multiply what you’ve seen by 100,000,000,000 cells . . . that’s one-hundred-trillion!  It’s mind-boggling . . . for me anyway.   It definitely makes me more aware of the miracle that life is, and it engenders in me a profound sense of respect for the cells of my body and a desire to offer them as much help as I can to make their work easier – such help as eating wholesome foods and taking nutritional supplements and herbs when needed with an attitude of blessing them all, as well as eliminating as many toxins from my life as possible, and doing moderate exercise daily, if only a twenty to thirty minute walk outdoors where fresh air is available and nature’s beauty abounds.

But even more important, I help my cells by maintaining a internal climate of peace and joy, because I  know they feel what’s going on inside my heart, as well as the vibrations of my thoughts.   I will think of these beautiful cells every time a negative thought creeps into my head, a resentful or complaining attitude wants to take root in my heart, or an ill spirit comes along to vex my soul.   In the words of the Psalmist, “Let me dwell in the secret place of the Most High, and abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”  Let me love unconditionally myself, my neighbor, my world.  Let there be peace in my house of being.

Tune in to my next installation in this series of articles exploring the nature of The Healing Process for a consideration of  “The Signaling Messengers” and the critical roles they play in maintaining chemical balance (homeostasis) in the body and implementing its healing process.

I will also be sharing a very significant scientific breakthrough and its application via innovative technology: The Redox Signaling Molecule. I look forward to it because it will represent the “golden nugget” of this series on the healing process.

I’ll leave you to the enjoyment once again of David Bolinsky’s entertaining presentation of the “Fantastic Voyage inside the cell.”  (10 min)

My best to your health and healing,
