From the INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this book is two-fold. The first is to present you with information that will direct you toward a new paradigm in healing work, be it professional work as a medical/health-care provider, or your own personal healing work as an individual. The second is to provide you with a simple pathway to follow in your exploration of this new paradigm.
The old paradigm, which is represented by our mainstream Western medical system, views the human body as a closed mechanical system. Illness and disease, pain and problems are caused by something that is separate from the human “machine”, and affects the machine from the outside “world”. Solutions for problems, and cures for illnesses, are to be found outside of the human system. Treatment is administered “on” or “to” us, and we are passive recipients. This is an external path toward healing, in that both the cause of the problem and the tools for the cure come from “out there”.
The new paradigm includes an internal path, based on the view that the human body is part of an open system that includes the mind. The mind consists of a conscious, intelligent field of energy that extends beyond the realm of material reality, and is not measurable by standards of time, mass, and space. The mind interacts with the human body via the brain. Illness and problems can originate at any level of the body-mind, and solutions are actively created from within our body-mind. The internal tools for creating solutions are consciousness and choice.
Signature Energy Work is the result of my own exploration of the new paradigm. It is a pathway toward healing that combines the external path and the internal, with the intention of forming a whole that is greater than the some of its parts, in which the two integrated paths complement and amplify each other. Signature Energy Work employs muscle-testing, a simple yes-no questioning mechanism, in combination with the SEWLINE, a framework of exploratory questions, to access the intelligence of the body-mind. The information gleaned is then integrated with energy-work techniques to create a healing treatment. I will discuss each of these three tools -- muscle-testing, the SEWLINE, and energy-work techniques -- in detail, as they are the basic components of Signature Energy Work.
Signature Energy Work is the product of over 20 years of clinical experience, imposed on the background of 40-plus years of life-experience and spiritual/philosophical study. This book is meant as a teaching tool for the professional healer as well as the individual lay person to learn Signature Energy Work: to examine it, understand it, and master it. However, just as Signature Energy Work itself is the integration of all of my healing experiences and philosophies, I encourage you to use it as a starting point for the examination of your own healing background, beliefs, and interests, and then create your own healing pathway. Healing is a creative process; it’s an art. Master the technical structure of any healing modality, and you become a technician. Stand on that structure and leap from it into the unknown, and you become an artist.
