More meditative thoughts on this new symbol.
Human beings do not have an energy field, human beings are energy fields. This is one of the tenets of Open Systems Theory, and of the ideas put forth by nursing theorist Martha Rogers initially in 1970 in The Science of Universal Human Beings.
1. Energy Field constitutes the fundamental unit of the living and the inanimate. The energy field is infinite. Rogers discusses two in particular. The first is the human field. Human beings do not have an energy field but rather they are energy fields. The environment is also an energy field. Neither field can be reduced any further.
2. Universe of Open System indicates energy fields are infinite and continuously open. The human and environmental systems are integrated with each other.
3. Pattern identifies the energy field. Is distinguishing and characteristic of a field and is perceived as a single wave. The pattern changes continuously and innovatively. Each human pattern is unique and is integrated with its own unique environmental field. The evolution of the unitary human being is a dynamic, irreducible, non-linear process characterized by increasing diversity of energy field patterning.
As energy beings we do not end at our skin, we extend out in every direction for a ways outside of our skin. Some identify this as your ‘personal space’. Something that is strongly tested any time you step onto a lift or into a small room with another person.
There have been a lot of sociological studies conducted in regards to personal space so I won’t go into any details here. Suffice to say – everyone has one. This is the continuation of the human energy field outside of the body. Some can sense this continuation as an aura. Areas of illness can also be senses as they cause a change in the energy patterns.
I’ve been trying out your newly discovered reiki symbol, hado (nai). I have experienced a sensation of being lightened. I’ve had some stressful pressures for a while now and after trying this symbol I feel like my usual self for dealing with this stuff, i.e. to trust and know it will work out perfectly. So thank you for publishing your info I’ve really enjoyed trying something new:) ~ Dawn
