The Healing Arts from Egypt to Harlem
An illustration that dates back over 4000 years ago taken from the Physician’s Tomb at Saqqara, Egypt shows two African wellness practitioners using a therapeutic form of healing by manipulating points on the feet and hands of patients. This famous picture (Google Physician’s Tomb) is considered the first recording of touch therapy. The Ki Energy Center in Harlem is one of the few locations in America that also provides an ancient Korean Taoist form of touch therapy.
Taoist healing arts can also be traced to the ancient Egyptian writings of Hermes. The laws of Vibration and Polarity are two of the seven Hermetic principles, and the foundation of the Taoist healing arts. All things vibrate and the Yin/Yang concept of Polarity is the most noticeable of the Hermetic laws by way of China and Korea.
In China human vital energy is call Chi and in Korea it is called Ki in the Asian healing arts Taoist touch therapy treatments are used to bring balance to the vital energy in those who are being treated. The Korean form of touch therapy practiced in the Harlem Ki Energy Center is used to address a host of health issues such as Anxiety, Back Pain, Insomnia, Stress, Depression and High Blood Pressure to name a few.
If you would like to experience a Ki Energy treatment visit our exhibit on Sunday July 29th at the HARLEM WEEK Great Day festival in Sakura Park across from U.S. Grant Memorial Park better known as Grant’s Tomb at 122nd Street and Riverside Drive. You can also call me directly at 646 329-6727 to schedule a Ki Energy Treatment at our Center which is located at 122nd between Malcolm X Blvd. and Mount Morris Place.
If you visit my blog at www.theartofwarogers.com you can more about the Ki wellness center and the ancient Egyptian Hermetic Laws that provide the wisdom and philosophy behind the touch therapy and energy training techniques that we use today. If you bring this article to our Ki Center exhibit at The Great Day festival between 2pm and 5pm and get a demonstration treatment I will give you a special two for one first time Ki treatment coupon at our center which is a sixty dollar value.
Rhythm is a Hermetic Law that states all things have cycles. Causation the seventh Hermetic Law states that all things happen for a reason there are no coincidences. The fact that ancient Egyptian healing arts are now in Harlem by way of Korea is a true testament of the Hermetic law of Rhythm. Your reading this article is for a reason and if you were thinking about different wellness options reading this dialog was not a coincidence. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday at the Great Day Festival.
Autosuggestion means making a definite and specific suggestion to yourself according to Joseph Murphy in his popular book “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”. The average person is not aware of the powers of the subconscious mind and how thinking can create reality. All too often negative autosuggestions are the major factors in the lack of productivity, health issues and unhappiness. On the other hand positive autosuggestions can address fear and doubt and allow the seemingly impossible to become possible.
Our conscious mind makes use of the five senses and our life history to develop what we believe to be the truth about ourselves and others. The thoughts that we believe to be true are then sent to our subconscious mind that in turn will turn our thoughts into a reality.Joseph Murphy explains autosuggestion this way: “What thoughts, beliefs, opinions, or dogmas you write, engrave, or impress on your subconscious mind, you shall experience them as the objective manifestation of circumstances, conditions, and events”.
When the brain receives thoughts from the conscious reasoning mind and those thoughts are accepted to be true they are sent to the solar plexus also known as the brain of your abdomen (your subconscious mind) where they become flesh and made to manifest in your life experience both internal and external.
If you believe you cannot achieve a goal you will encounter internal and external barriers that will keep you from achieving that goal. A major factor in negative Autosuggestion is a term called heterosuggestion. Hetrosuggestion means suggestions from another person. From an early age many have received negative hetrosuggestions about who they are and what they can achieve in life. We are who we think we are and we can achieve what we believe we can achieve.
Positive herterosuggestions can develop positive autosuggestions in individuals statement like black is beautiful in the 60’s was an important hetrosuggestion that developed self-pride in large numbers of American from African descent who for year had been subjected with negative hertrosuggestions due to racism in this country. Creating inferiority complexes that continue exist in the subconscious minds of many.
The election of President Barack Obama sent a powerful and positive herterosuggestion to a large number of blacks in America and the world, a fact that often goes unnoticed.
