Welcome to Healthy Being!
Remembering Dr John Whitman Ray
Every year I honour the work of Dr Sir John Whitman Ray, founder of Body Electronics in the form of a note on the anniversary of his death on April 21, 2001. As always, my object is to bring attention to the principles he taught, not merely the man, as a personality.
This year I consider one of the most controversial topics in his teaching, the relationship of men and women in terms of the equality and roles of the sexes. As they say, if I had a penny for every time issues around gender came up in Body Electronics classes, particularly with John around, I think I would have a pretty decent sack of pennies.
A large part of the controversy derives from the great deal of emotional charge associated with perceived and real injustices, many layers of societal, religious and cultural programming that distort the truth, and stereotyping that pervades mass media channels, art, employment policy and practice, and many other areas.
However, the topic is poorly understood from a position of correct principle and furthermore is an impediment to many people, in terms of the experiences they have had or continue to have, their attitudes toward others, or in reaching a position of understanding one's own identity and beingness on a gender and sexual level, including their ability to reach a position of non-resistance. So although the territory may be charged, the need is great.
There are some clear principles that can be elaborated, allowing the reader to sift through any biases and reach their own conclusions.
At Healthy Being we are dedicated to addressing the true causes behind all
health conditions. While we can help with the relief of symptoms, we also recognise that symptoms have an internal or external cause that, unless rectified, will tend to result in the eventual reappearance of the symptoms.
This Month at Healthy Being...
My pages about natural approaches to fertility, pregnancy and childbirth continue to be popular. You can read a preview below.
Find out how to get my latest publication, now in its second edition, "The List - The Art of Constructive Manifestation."
What is Body Electronics?
Contrary to what may be suggested by the name,
Body Electronics, there are no gadgets or electrical devices used. The name simply refers to the innate electrical or electronic nature of the body and the method and benefits of removing blockages and alterations to the flow of nerve impulses and other forms of communication in the body.
What is Pointholding?
Pointholding is one of the main therapeutic aspects of Body Electronics. It usually involves applying finger pressure to a region of the body with the intention of helping dissolve crystals underlying that area. These crystals interfere with nerve impulses and other forms of communication in the body.
I'm pleased to feature my own book this month, The List - The Art of Constructive Manifestation.
Republished this year as an extended second edition, The List - The Art of Constructive Manifestation brings together the elegant simplicity of The List and deeper insight into its proper application and action.
I am ever amazed by the unbiquitous and manifold aspects of The List and how its daily use can underpin all our efforts to bring our chosen direction in life to fruition. Whether it be your spiritual path, your personal road to health or freedom, or just your desire to "sort out your life", The List is a profoundly potent and far-reaching tool to help you get there.
