Do We Have a Self? (Part 1)
Deepak Chopra - September 01, 2006
We have to use the same words to communicate, and one of the terms we share is "self." Myself, yourself, himself, herself. This everyday word has leaked into spirituality as the Self or higher self, and people have become comfortable with it. "God is really your higher self." There's a fairly acceptable sentence among many kinds of seekers.
It comes as a surprise to realize that in neurology no one has ever found this "self." There is no part of the brain where it resides, and even though current thinking holds that more than one area of the brain often interacts with another , this observation doesn't mean (so far) that any pattern inside the brain gives rise to the self.
After all, you feel like yourself in almost any situation. When your brain is processing a memory, having an emotion, reacting to a sensation, or doing anything at all but sleeping, you feel like yourself. So where is this self if not in the brain? You can answer that question in two ways. 1. Everything has to be in the brain, so it's just a matter of time before we find the self. 2. There is a self organized by the brain but not exactly in it, the way a sock is in a drawer.
At the quantum level all subatomic particles exist in a shadowland between time and the timeless, between matter and energy. The universe winks in and out of existence millions of times per second, and the fundamental vibrations that underlie matter have "virtual" equivalents that have no fixed location the way matter does.
In a very basic way, this means that the universe is discontinuous, that it gives the illusion of being a real, solid, verifiable, sensual world while at a deeper level none of these qualities exist. Now let's jump to the self. You feel just as real as the universe you live in. Why? Because your brain and your senses create a "self at the center," a person who remembers a continuous life from the past, has certain preferences, and identifies with all kinds of labels: you know implicitly where you live, what your job is, how much you make, the names of your family, etc. This entire collection of "facts" about the self make you feel real.
One of the big problems in neurology today is the binding problem, which centers on the way different areas of the brain light up simultaneously to create a memory or a feeling or a thought. Quite often the related areas are far apart, yet they interact instantaneously. What binds them? There seems to be physical apparatus, no trunk telephone line to alert a clump of neurons that another clump of neurons on the other side of the brain is about to fire. In fact, such a telephone system makes no sense, because these firings really are simultaneous. One part of the cortex doesn't send out a message saying, "Be on the lookout. This guy's about to say the word hamburger and begin to get hungry." Things happen all at once, then disappear to make way for a new set of things that happen all at once.
This is precisely how the quantum world acts. Some kind of "binding" holds together billions of local events, and whatever it is that makes paired electrons spin in sync even though they are light years apart must be "nonlocal."

Trusting in the process I went for it. The two dogs seemed to know why I was there and, were glad to see me. I ran energy on Jackie, a seven year old hound. She just lay down next to me and stretched out. She would roll over a bit and try to get even closer to me. I realized that there were no emotional blocks in a dog. I felt some anxiety and apprehension that probably came from the owner. So would the dog’s energy entrain to the owners? I decided I wanted to run the dog’s Chakra’s. Wait a minute, how many does a dog have? Does a dog need a third eye if it already has natural instinct? What color are they? I felt like there were only 5 Chakras, a nice number. Then I remembered reading that dogs don’t see in color so I figured that their Chakras might not be different colors either. In fact, I remembered something about dogs only seeing it Brown and White.
So there I was running energy on Jackie, and spinning her “root beer” colored Chakras. She stretched out even more while trying to snuggle closer. Finally she let out this amazing sound that I can only describe as a combination of woof, growl, and a sigh. Totally relaxation. I also worked with Stanley, a much younger hound. He was just very hyperactive and moody. I was warned that he might bite when you least expect it. So my job was to run energy and not expect the bite at all. I guess that is less than expected or is this that letting go of expectations? Anyway he calmed right down and followed me around while I worked on a couple of humans too. Just another Quantum day.

Attention + Intention + Imagination = Visualization = Manisfestation
Energy follows thought. If your thoughts aren't focused neither is the energy.
Energy flows with intention. Quite the mind. Open the heart.
Energy can be a loud thought or it can be allowed thought.

What is Quantum-Touch?
It is the facilitation of healing by running energy through hands-on techniques.
Through its own intelligence, your body will direct the healing energy to the necessary areas and repair itself. Basically, it's the integration of quantum physics with spirituality creating an elegant and efficient approach to healing and wholeness. Physical and emotional stress or pain as well as Life-force energy balance are possible depending on the body's needs.
The principles behind Quantum Touch involve resonance, intention, attention, breath, and innate body intelligence. Practitioners learn to hold a high vibrational energy in their hands. The recipient will eventually match the vibrations. In this process, a person's innate body intelligence directs the healing. In nature, when two systems vibrate at different frequencies, there is a tendency for the two vibrations to come together. This is most often referred to as the process of resonance and entrainment.
That is all well and good but how about a picture?
How about a aura?
Or a Chakra Poster.
