Hello Awawkened Soul,
As for question #2; no, I do not and never have done NEW. I don't think that sort of Energy exercise for the sake of it has any particular value. However, directing Energy as a part of the healing process, again as I discuss in my book, is absolutely fundamantal to the success of healing. The same applies to Reiki, Pranic Healing etc.. which all involve directing Energy towards the object of the healing guided by the Mind. Reiki, Pranic Healing and other Energy based healing methods are very powerful indeed.
NEW however is really just another mystical process, and like much of mysticism can become a religion. People talk of "energy work" and so on but it makes no real sense.
The fact is; the entire Universe is pure Energy, and we also are pure Energy, Energy that we "work" with all the time whether we are conscious of it or not, and therefore the concept of drawing Energy in through your feet for example makes no sense at all. Energy originates from within and extends to the outer physical world including our physical body, and it is therefore from within that we draw it and focus it with theMind for healing, or indeed any other purpose. During healing we focus on directing Energy, the same Energy of which we are all aspects. The notion that Energy is somehow outside of us and can be drawn into us is erroneous.
Thanks alot for your reply again, Adrian. I get the point on nr.1 but for nr.2, the NEW system, I think that it does have it's uses although the energy RAISING might be or is erroneous in theory.
- The NEW system is very effective in stimulating your energy body by using the awareness actions you learn with NEW
- It's also VERY easy to stimulate chakras
- You become very sensitive to energy in general and notice where there's more energy in the air then somewhere else wich can be fun when visiting a party or concert and stuff like that
- Apparantly there most definitely are storage centers in your body that can be filled with the NEW system that the body can use
Although some of these things may still be erroneous, I do feel that what works works. I mean, if you really consider that energy is all there is, then why for instance bother to breathe air if you're pure energy yourself? Or why eat or drink? The answer is that we apparantly have to take more energy to us in the form of oxygen or food, so why not through the hands and feet, etc.... We also seem to exchange engergy when kissing and having sex through energy ports in mouth and genitals.
I do get the point about what you said, but it's just that by now I'm probably an advanced NEW-user that sees that NEW system does have certain uses that are too powerful to just to be thrown in the dustbin. And for blind people (wich I'm not) it's also very nice to learn a system based on awareness instead of visualisation.
I also noticed that now I have an develloped energy body, it's much easier to get it to respond using visualisation techniques wich sure wasn't the case before (that whole white light thing just was too far fetched for me at first and I'm probably not alone).
One last thing: according to Bruce, visualisation is not like really seeing something in your minds eye in the sense of watching a tv screen. This is actually called 'clairvoyance' and shouldn't be called visualisation because it confuses people and makes them think they can't do it (and most people probably can't really see tv screen like images without develloping the third eye indeed). Do you agree with this?
