Energy Medicine/Noetic Field Therapy
How would you like to dramatically reduce your stress and anxiety, feel more peaceful and relaxed, gain perceptual clarity, feel greater joy and confidence, increase your energy, improve your physical health, and awaken you to your holiness? You can do all this by removing imbalances in your human energy field and aura. These energy blocks manifest themselves as stress and anxiety. Removing the blocks restores the natural energy flow resulting in feelings of peace and harmony.
Why do we need energy medicine?
When aligned and balanced, the aura is radiant energy, a living light. Because the aura serves the transformational agendas of the soul, it is constructed such that imbalance can be incorporated into the ego structure. Part of our life is to create blocks, which we use as stepping-stones. Our issues and concerns appear as blocks and distortions in the energy field. Physical and emotional trauma, self-judgment and limiting beliefs, or external psychic pressures from individuals, groups or institutional belief systems cause these blocks and distortions. Psychological and spiritual wounds condense, even into physical disease, to assist us to complete the soul’s imperative to fulfill our nature. Although these patterns in the aura represent energy limitations, each one also holds a key to greater spiritual realization and strengthening. They are adversaries that become allies as we work to transform them.
Each dilemma is linked internally to a solution that awakens our holiness. Our beliefs, judgments, attitudes, and trauma affect the containment and movement of energy within our consciousness. Blocks are an attempt to protect. As such, they become integrated into the sustaining structure of our personality. As we create meaning in response to trauma, we adapt to the meaning as if it were normal. Thus, the trauma and the meaning we constructed in response become normalized into our psyche. We adapt to the level of our injury. While the ego adapts to trauma, the soul continues to pursue transformation. In the deepest sense, our aura is out of balance as one phase in a process caused by our drive to awaken spiritually and transform the quality of our lives and our experience. In a more conventional sense, any concern, trauma, or issue that brings one to counseling or requires therapy reflects in the aura as an imbalance.
Blocks and imbalances help us answer the age-old questions: Who am I? What am I? What do I want? The more energized and integrated the aura, the faster the process. Transformation and realization can be instantaneous. The aura wants to be in balance. As we grow wiser, we are more attentive to the care and maintenance of ourselves as energy. It is in our nature to seek new experience and then transform that experience into understanding, strength, and awareness. Blocks are a natural increment of human destiny. We are taught that we must do good in order to be good. In truth, we do good because we are good.
To have a perfectly balanced aura, one’s development and attitudes on all three of these levels (physical, emotional, and mental-spiritual) must be in perfect attunement with the Infinite. For example, should a man become involved in an intense argument with another person leading to an exchange of physical blows, the disharmonies will show in both the mental and physical auras and the auric fields will be disrupted. The aura carries scars just as the physical body carries its scars. Emotionally and spiritually as the affected person strives for a better balance, the wounds become laced just as a physician will sew up a cut on the physical body. Consequently, as we live, grow, decide what is right and what is wrong, rationalize and compromise, our aura is in a constant state of flux. How the aura is transformed depends upon our ideas, attitudes, endeavors, and the state of consciousness in which we live. There is no doubt that our personality, soul condition, hidden self, and physical condition are revealed clearly through the vibrations and formation of the aura. A trained Noetic Field Therapist can tell the emotional and spiritual development of a person by the scars and lacings in the aura.
“In the universe there is an immeasurable and indescribable force which those who live of the source call intention – and that absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.
Sorcerers are not only concerned with understanding and explaining that connecting link, but they are especially concerned with cleansing it of the numbing effects brought about by all of the concerns of living at ordinary levels of consciousness.” – Carlos Castaneda
Noetic Field Therapy
In the practice of Noetic Field Therapy, the healing proceeds focusing on energy first and image second. We reference our therapeutic attunement first on the energy field, followed by attention to the body and psychological structures. Other therapies begin with the issue, explore its structure, and abstractly infer the blockage in the intentional flow of energy. We begin with the blockage of energy in the field itself as it exists around the physical body. The practitioner is able to find these blocks by inner seeing, spiritual vision, or hands scanning. Through prayer and focus, an altered state of consciousness unfolds, enabling the practitioner to engage the blocks and distortions directly in the energy field. Through this spiritual rapport, the practitioner is able to assist the client to experience transformation and balance. The healing occurs by de-constructing the blocking beliefs while the therapeutic focus forms a conduit for the flow of spiritual energy. The use of one’s hand or a pendulum enhances the therapeutic focus. This flow of energy helps release the blocks and balances the field. Transformation occurs through an alliance of intervening spiritual energies, unfolding soul energies, and our own self-forgiveness. Once the block is discerned and attuned to, we explore the related belief structure or complex. The practitioner assists their clients to change, reframe, or forgive themselves for the blocking beliefs or judgments. Concurrently, their therapeutic focus forms a conduit for the flow of spiritual energy (such as chi, dharma, or the Holy Spirit) which helps release the blocks and balance the auric field. The block clears because you are working from the place inside you defined by your wholeness. When the distortions are gone, the field is once again fluid and smooth. There is no bad energy, just energy displaced. We aren’t the wound, we are the relationship to the wound. Balancing puts energy back in place.
In an aura balancing session, an “altered state” occurs in which the time frame changes – past joins present and alternate futures are created. Because of the intimacy and unconditional love, the practitioner can safely become the temporary transference of the client’s strengths and weaknesses. Our unconscious becomes conscious by reflecting it back to ourselves through life’s drama. The blocks in energy are formed when our emotions give us information such as fear, hurt, anger, confusion, or aloneness and we place a thought on it that says we are bad, powerless, shameful, victimized, or guilty. In this way a structure is formed and energy trapped. The trapped energy represents an incomplete expression of joy, curiosity, love, or enthusiasm. Blocked by the belief, attitude or judgment, inherently joyous, loving energy is experienced in painful, numb, angry, or depressed symptoms. In Noetic Field Therapy the symptoms point to cause and cause points to intention. The symptomatic patterns reflected back through the metaphor of physical, mental, and emotional reveal pictures of the soul’s purpose in reflection. Techniques such as releasing, reframing, healing the memories, and self-forgiveness balance the energy by expanding it into wholeness. The choice made by the client provides a conduit for understanding and love to flow into the area of imbalance. These ingredients cause a change in the injuries and restrictive patterns which result in a fulfillment and expansion to the inner consciousness. The goal is not to analyze but to create access to universal energy through the inner life of the personality and actualization of the person.
The expression of the soul – as a positive force on each negative level of the unconscious (archetypal), mental, emotional, imagination, and physical – takes a slightly different form. The soul as a spiritual force on each level will persevere through any system of belief temporarily created by the individual. At the core of any destructive psychology pattern is a spiritual essence striving to be actualized and fulfilled. On the imaginative level it is procreation and creativity. On the emotional level it is desire and enthusiasm, on the mental level inspiration and intuition, and on the archetypal level aspiration. On the soul level its motivation is unto itself a return and union with the universal love and intelligence of which it is a spark or essence. Our souls share love through our minds, feelings, and touch without control or claim. It is the ultimate goal to draw all the motivating forces for preservation, creativity, desire, enthusiasm, inspiration, intuition, and aspiration back into itself and direct those energies in wholly spiritual ways.
The implications for therapy are straightforward. When an expression has been blocked there is pain, unconsciousness, confusion, numbness, absence of creativity, or indifference. By the practitioner or client touching and acknowledging the true motivation, it activates and moves. This sensation can be experienced in many ways such as “quaking”, body trembling, a rush of joy, and sudden sense of weightlessness or freedom. These responses can range form very mild to very dramatic. These energies are the “juices” by which we draw our impulses to do. They can be freely accessed and either used or misused. It is our choice.

Phineus Parkhurst Quimby was a transcendentalist healer who practiced during the mid 1800’s and made a significant contribution to the new thought movement in the United States. He said that true science was the understanding that existed beyond our rational understanding. He discovered that we each have a spiritual form within us that he called the inner Christ. Considering Quimby’s definition of science, his recognition of this inner spiritual form transcended all ideological and religious boundaries to embrace a universal spiritual force. In a sense, Quimby was anticipating quantum physics and it terms of modern physics, we could call this healing resource the quantum Christ.
In 1964, Dr. Neva Dell Hunter blended Quimby’s science with her understanding of the human energy fields and, with John-Clarke McDougall, developed aura balancing. A central feature to McDougall’s collaboration was the use of a pendulum. This made possible a transformation of energy at the precise location of the block or distortion in the aura. This technique facilitated deep work within the psyche and the aura itself without the need to touch the physical body. Ellavivian Power describes this definitive work in her book, The Auric Mirror. They also believed that the aura can actually become distorted, blocked, or unbalanced by judgments we make about our life experiences, which in turn can cause physical illnesses or other manifestations. And at the core of these auric imbalances are feelings that lie deep within. Dr. Hunter and Ellavivian Power combined auric healing sessions with self-forgiveness to allow the release of energy blocks in the aura that perpetuate disharmony.

Recently, Dr. Robert D. Waterman combined the energy work techniques of Quimby and Hunter with the philosophies of Husseri, Emerson, Steiner, and John-Roger to form Noetic Field Therapy. Dr. Waterman describes this technique in his book Through the Eyes of Soul, Theory and Practice of Noetic Field Therapy. Noetic Field Therapy is a spiritual approach to inner harmony, clarity, and alignment. Through prayer, an attunement is made to transcendental energies, creating an opportunity to change any emotional attitudes or mental judgments that may be blocking the energy flow. This process occurs in a very supportive non-adversarial and non-coercive way. There are no imposed attitudes or beliefs. Any suggestions made are given as options that may assist in clearing and balancing the energy field. The balancing process will not exceed the limits that are appropriate as expressed by your own intuitive determination of the highest good.

Noetic Field Therapy Procedures
Preparing the Client:
When a client makes an appointment, I talk about the need to be accepting and that one’s own desires for greater health, well-being, and happiness are sufficient preparation. It is best to start with three sessions and to space them two or more weeks apart. Each session can last from one to two hours and averages 90 minutes. Generally, the first session focuses on the physical, the second on the emotional, and the third on the mental-spiritual. Depending on the circumstances, there may be exceptions. Each balancing provides a foundation for the next. After the first three, a balancing every six months to a year seems beneficial.
I orient the client to the nature of the balancing and explain that usually the physical and emotional balancings are done silently. If a question or observation comes up, I encourage the client to speak. During the mental-spiritual balancing, I make focus statements to help the client discover and clarify beliefs and to facilitate self-forgiveness. Jewelry, metal, and shoes might affect the balancing, so I ask the client to remove them. The client reclines, face up, on a therapy table with the practitioner standing. The reclining position of the client is relaxing while providing the practitioner easy access to the energy fields.
Opening and Balancing:
With the client relaxing, I begin the session with a prayer. Regardless of the spiritual heritage, the balancing strengthens the client’s particular spiritual practice. After the prayer, I use a crystal pendulum to open the aura at the solar plexus. The pendulum is an instrument of focus. The permission of the client, the alignment with spirit, and my intention form the focus through the pendulum opening the aura. As I lower the pendulum into the aura, I sense the subtle changes that occur. Usually the aura engages and begins to open just above the solar plexus. When this occurs, the pendulum gently begins to rotate. When the aura is open, the pendulum stops. Each imbalance in the aura is approached in a similar way. This action creates a high level of rapport with the client. It also makes the sensitive levels of the client extremely vulnerable. The protective fields of the aura interface with the psycho-spiritual environment. As I mentioned before, blocks are an attempt to protect and have been integrated into the sustaining structure of the individual. Therefore, the individual must authorize any changes to this structure.
Next, I scan the aura with my hand to first increase my attunement and then to find the blocks and distortions. My hands are trained to see and sense. The impressions are processed through my nervous system and brain like any other stimulation. Because I am awake in my subtle body, movement in my energy fields register in my physical body. This is true for most of us. We have trained ourselves to focus away from these impressions. In this phase of balancing, talking is not necessary except perhaps to help the client relax. When I find a block or distortion, I use the pendulum to engage the energy. When the pendulum rotates, it reflects the transformation of energy in the aura. I proceed in this manner until all the areas are balanced.
A wonderful process develops between the client and the practitioner. The practitioner is analogous to a transformer. In electronics a transformer is a device that matches different energies for the purpose of transferring power. In this case the balancer is the transformer of universal energy and the soul and magnetic energy of the client. As the healing progresses, greater energy is available. Each time the client lets go of or forgives self-inflicted judgments, the patterns that imbalance the aura dissolve. The energy of the aura becomes coherent through the focus of the practitioner and the developing inner agreement and balance of the client. The levels and lines of force in the aura develop a resonance. As this resonance increases the aura becomes coherent, which results in a balance.
The natural guidance leads from one step to the next. Balancing the physical and emotional energy fields is done silently. I may ask the client what she or he is experiencing or suggest a deep breath. Facilitative talking is always needed in the mental-spiritual balancing because the client needs to discover and clarify their beliefs and self-forgiveness. At some point toward the end, I will have the client turn over so I can check the aura from the back. I continue until the entire aura is smooth and silky. Before I finish, the client is once again face up. With the self-permission, a loving presence moves through the energy field resulting in a smooth texture to the aura. These processes are repeated until the coherence occurs throughout the energy field. When the process in completed, a focus of filling the aura with radiant energy is held by the practitioner, separating the close connection of the two auras and sealing in the changes.
When the balancing appears to be complete, I ask the client if there is anything else. When nothing more presents itself, I then proceed to close the aura with a blessing of spiritual light and love. To close the aura, I encircle it seven times in a clockwise direction ending at the solar plexus.
Period of Adjustment:
The balancing process continues for three days after the actual session has ended. During this time, the individual completes any processing and adapts to any changes. This period of adjustment provides a new baseline upon which the subconscious can regulate the psyche. For that reason, I recommend that the client abstain from alcohol, recreational drug use, and sex for those three days. Alcohol and drugs may disrupt the transformative changes and disperse the new organization of energy. Sexual intimacy is very powerful and, until the changes stabilize, may be confusing on the subtle levels. Recreational drugs always act against the balancing process and should not be used when developing a strong, aligned, balanced aura.
I also recommend that the client take life as it comes for the three days. Changes are often deep and can be accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms such as minor flu or restlessness. On the other hand, the client may experience a great peace or joy. In any case, by the end of the three days, the client will have adjusted to the changes and have a new sense of what is normal. With each session, the client becomes more and more skillful in using the balancing session and maintaining and promoting balance in general.
The effects of the aura balancing may be as subtle as feeling more peaceful or as dramatic as experiencing bliss, greater clarity, or transformation. Our souls are rich with awakening power. When we reach down into ourselves and call forward the strength within us, the universe responds in kind. Life brings to us what we pay attention to. Dwell on victim, the universe brings us victim experiences. Dwell on holiness, and we will see the face of holiness looking back at us through life itself. Eventually, no one is an enemy. If there is an enemy, it is the thoughts that coax us away from the truth of our holiness. The bottom-line-purpose of life is to awaken to our holiness and then realize that all else follows. Our lives are the fulfillment of a spiritual promise.
