Here are several techniques with which you can use what you've learned in System One as a sort of energetic first aid.

Physical Care Techniques for Self

There are several ways in which you can administer to yourself when your body has been injured or traumatized in any way. These we shall call Care Techniques for Self. They show you how to care for, and actually alleviate many physical problems for yourself.

Please note that none of these techniques obviates the need for conventional medical care. By the time an issue has manifested in the physical body, it usually becomes a real illness that needs to be cured by conventional means. These techniques are intended to be used:

  • In addition to first aid, to ease pain and bring comfort while awaiting conventional medical attention

  • After or during conventional treatment, to help resolve the underlying issue, thus permitting faster and more complete physical recovery

There are levels of physical pain, as well as levels of awareness regarding injury and pain. These may range from a not-yet-painful erupting pimple, to a major wound. In each case, you need to recognize that any physical pain that your body experiences includes some level of unconsciousness. You heal much faster when you are more aware of what is occurring. You can learn to direct your energies and focus, so that conscious awareness and life essence returns to any painful or numb area.

Your physical body learns to protect itself in many ways. One of these ways is to stabilize an injured area through the process of swelling. Another way is through numbness. Each society teaches ways to get rid of pain. These techniques do not necessarily deal with the actual pain or injury. (For example, taking aspirin or ibuprofen doesn't necessarily cure the actual cause of a headache, which is why they so often recur.) The most effective way to remove the cause of pain is by learning how to focus and direct your energies.

The following Care Techniques present the beginning steps to true recovery.

Care Technique One (Self): Directing Focus

When you are really taken up with the pain of an injury, close your eyes and direct your attention by focusing on the area. Squeeze different parts of your body with your hand. Say to yourself "Feel this." When you feel it, acknowledge yourself. Repeat this as many times as needed until you are more focused and you are better able to communicate with others. Pay particular attention to your joints as these tend to hold a lot more energy in them.

If you are injured and in too much pain, ask someone else to do this with you. Request them to squeeze your hand. It will help you focus and come more present to start the healing process. When you are focused enough and you are able to, proceed by using the above process on yourself.

Care Technique Two (Self): Handling A Temperature

When you have a fever, direct your attention to things around you. Each time, you say to yourself "Look at that (object)," acknowledge yourself by saying good, great! Then say "Hold it completely still." Follow this by asking, "Did I hold it completely still?" If you didn't, request yourself to do it again until you can. Do this with several different objects. This will assist in bringing a high fever to where it is working for you and not against you.

The reason this works is that fever occurs in the body as a way to rid it of harmful bacteria or viruses. The bacteria or viruses, being much, much, smaller than a Human, are less tolerant of temperature changes than we are; the higher temperature kills them. However, if the body panics in response to resistant bacteria, the temperature may raise dangerously high, in which case the fever can cause damage. Keeping the body's temperature from rising too high allows us to experience less discomfort so we can focus on healing.

Another approach to dealing with fever is to pay attention to the body's requests for temperature change. In cases of serious infection, fevers are most effective when they reach high temperatures briefly to kill as many bacteria as possible, then drop quickly to avoid damaging the body. Once the body has recovered, the temperature can again rise to kill more bacteria.

To assist the body, pay attention: If you feel cold, the body wants to warm up (hence the chills that often accompany fever). So, get into a hot bath, as warm as is comfortable. Soak until you feel warm, which is the body's way of saying it wants to cool down. At that point, simply pour cool water into the tub until you again feel comfortable. Prepare to soak for an hour or more, keeping the water temperature comfortable to you at all times. In this way, you can assist the body in defending against invading bacteria effectively and with a minimum of discomfort.

High fevers are sometimes accompanied by hallucinations or periods of unconsciousness. Never get into a tub alone if you are that sick!

Care Technique Three (Self): Handling Immediate Injury

When your injury is fresh, follow this simple procedure to re-establish the proper flows of energy throughout the body. An injury to the body acts like an earthquake and sends shock waves throughout your body.

With trauma, erratic energy vibrations can become locked up in various other areas of the body. This happens specifically around the joints. Another phenomenon is called reflexive injury, in which uninjured parts of the body manifest the pain of injured parts. For example, after injuring your left hand, the right hand may start to hurt. This is the body's way of trying to discharge the excess traumatic flows of energy. The following technique can be used while you contact the injured area:

It's quite simple: Repeat the motion that caused the injury. Slowly, of course, so that the injury isn't made worse! If the injury was caused by a moving object, make sure the object has been brought to a stop. Make sure anything hot has been cooled, and anything very cold has been warmed to a safe temperature. If there was electric current present, turn it off. If something crushed a part touching it will do as close as possible to the area of impact.

The repetition of motion should be as complete as possible: Touch the injured part to the area that injured it. As much as possible, duplicate the motion exactly as it happened originally. The welled-up energy will begin to dissipate. Keep doing this until all the trauma, unconsciousness and pain are gone.

If you are injured you may experience several levels of discomfort. The pain may even, briefly, become worse than before! Just keep touching the injured body part to the area or object that caused the injury. Whatever might show up, fear or pain, this will eventually lift, as long as you do this enough times.

Be careful to recognize when the pain or trauma is gone. That is the time to end off.

What has happened energetically is that impacts that are painful have disbursed some of your energy into an object and some of its energy into you! By touching those areas together your body can recognize its energy patterns and reestablish these back and release the object's energy back to it.
