Laying on of Hands and Miracle Healing
Monday, 29 November 2010 14:53

Several Years ago, I interviewed Dr. Melinda H. Connor, Director of the Karen Connor Optimal Healing Research program at the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona, the only laboratory program in the country specifically missioned to find mechanisms of action in the energy healing process and the miracle healing process. They look at a full range of “laying on of hands” energy-healing experiences using hard science and empirical measures -- things like gamma and x ray detectors, biophoton imaging systems, EEG s and EKG s to look at the healing process to try and better understand what is involved. Dr. Connor’s focus is Biofield therapies.

Dr. Connor holds a MA in Counseling Psychology from University of San Francisco and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from California Coast University. Her dissertation combined telemedicine technology with providing psychological services for developmentally delayed children residing in a rural community. In addition, she completed a one-year Neuropsychology rotation with Shasta Community Health Center and a three year Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Complementary-Alternative Medicine Research at D. Andrew Weil's Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona (under Dr. Iris Bell and mentored by Dr. Gary Schwartz.) Dr. Connor is a board certified Alternative Medicine Practitioner by the American Alternative Medicine Association.

Using a biophoton imaging system, the same kind of system that observatories around the world use to image distant stars, they looked at very, very small quantities of light -- photons, which are smaller than electron particles created by cellular metabolism. They looked at those photons and how they’re given off by various living cells and collecting that light overtime and looking at differences in the light. The results are fascinating, and the process was in its infancy at that time, so I will be inviting Dr. Connor to join me again soon.

According to Dr. Connor:

We can only test the practitioners themselves after they are already attuned. And then only to see whether or not their brain waves change and whether or not they produce this oscillation affect, changes in things like gamma and X-ray emission, whether or not they’re oscillating in a number of different frequency ranges, things like that…

We can perceive when we’re running the waves. We can perceive when there’s a change in the process. We can perceive how things are flowing…

We were very honored about a year ago to have at the Laboratory For Advances in Consciousness And Health, a very wonderful gentleman who is a Sufi practitioner. And he is capable of going into a beautiful and a deep prayerful state in the Sufi tradition. And in that place, he took a skewer and we had him wired to an EEG. And he put the skewer through his cheek. Now with an EEG, if someone is going to be in pain, it shows up very, very fast and particularly the victim’s head, neck, or shoulder area; but it shows up very, very fast. And this gentleman experienced no pain that we could track. And he stayed in that position for about five minutes. And then took the skewer out of his cheek. And I was honored and gratified to be able to watch the skin flow back together and close. There was no wound on the outside of the cheek. There was no wound on the inside of the cheek. It was absolutely as if there had never been any trauma inflicted.

That’s what I consider a miracle.

On Wednesday, December 1st, I will be hosting an event with DaVid Raphael, M.D., who will share his wisdom about the power of miracles and love to heal.
