The old paradigm of health and healing has been undergoing an array of subtle shifts in the past 10 years. To provide a more holistic care to their patients, many traditional (allopathic) health care providers have begun to incorporate alternative modalities into their practice. Simultaneously, and ironically, while they have been taking this important step, the alternative practitioners have been trying to catch up with the wisdom and science of the mystics.
If we are to be re-wired for the upcoming health care evolution that will prevails for hundreds and possibly thousands of years we must incorporate the science of the mystics with the traditional and alternative sciences. Only by taking this crucially important step will we be able to create a radical shift in consciousness and achieve a lasting health and peace that is at the root of our quest for healing, happiness, and enlightenment.
Before we look at this needed paradigm shift in health care it is important to understand the foundation the current system is based on. The traditional education system trains and graduates people as ‘experts’ while completely ignoring the state of personal development of the expert himself. The training, which at its core is based on intellectual understanding of concepts, assumes that if the ‘expert’ has passed their exams successfully they are automatically qualified to know what their patients’ needs are and how to ‘treat’ the issues that are perceived to be a problem.
The traditional education system gives the graduate the power, authority, and responsibility to conclude what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ for the patient. It takes away the power, responsibility, as well as the dignity away from the individual and puts it into the hands of the graduate ‘expert.’ The graduate then knowingly or unknowingly becomes a puppet in the hands of the status quo that created this system of education and accreditation in the first place.
Prescribing a remedy, whether allopathic or alternative, without understanding the patient’s individual journey and the lessons that he/she needs to learn will always yield a limited outcome. To raise health care education to a new more complete and comprehensive state we must include the science of the mystics. We must educate and encourage our experts to simultaneously and sincerely work on their own healing and transformation.
The Self-Healing Dalian Method Facilitators (SHDMF) are professionals who have courageously looked into and worked with their own unconscious fears and limiting beliefs. They are the people, who, in spite of their training with traditional concepts have taken the courage to step out of the ‘norm’ because they have realized that something is fundamentally missing in their institutional education. Instead of receiving and giving ready-made answers these extraordinary pioneers have taken the courage and responsibility to find true answers within themselves and walk their talk with integrity.
What the world needs most at this time is self-healing and self-responsibility. To me, these two components, along with training in self-awareness are essential in the advancement of our education and health care systems. This fundamental understanding and approach in healing and spiritual transformation is what makes the Self-Healing Dalian Method and its facilitators pioneers in creating a fertile foundation for meeting the needs of our evolving humanity.
