The Biofield Anatomy
“Biofield” is the word chosen by a team of National Institute of Health scientists in 1994 to describe the field of energy and information that surrounds and interpenetrates the human body. It is composed of both measurable electromagnetic energy and hypothetical subtle energy, or chi. This structure is also called the Human Energy Field or Aura.
While Western Science has yet to describe and measure subtle energy, other cultures, especially ancient Indian or Vedic cultures describe it extensively. The term “chakra” means wheel in Sanskrit and these spinning energy vortices are seen as structures in the body’s subtle energy anatomy. Not coincidentally, chakras are present where there are large nerve clusters or plexuses within the body itself.
One way of looking at subtle energy is to see it as a higher harmonic of electromagnetic energy, present wherever electromagnetic energy is, but higher, finer, more diffuse and following slightly different laws. Another way to see it is: subtle energy is to electromagnetism as water vapor is to water. Just as we do not measure water vapor with the same tools we use to measure water, we can’t use the same tools to measure subtle energy that we use to measure electricity.
Another word for this energy is bioplasma, a diffuse magnetic fluid that surrounds all living beings. Like a fluid, it can be of varying viscosities and densities. In Biofield Tuning, we see the human biofield as a bioplasmic toroid-shaped bubble that surrounds the body at a distance of about five feet to the sides and two-three feet at the top and bottom, bounded by a double layer plasma membrane that is much like the ionosphere of the earth.
All of our life experiences appear to be stored within this magnetic medium, in what seems to be binary patterns encoded in standing waves. Eileen’s research has shown that the biofield appears to be compartmentalized, with the record of different emotional experiences being stored in different, stratified locations in the field. Additionally, it is timelined, with information at the outer edge of the field relating to gestation, birth and earliest childhood and information close to the body being recent or current. All other years fall in between like rings in a tree.
Different emotions have different frequency signatures– these are reflected in the overtones (or harmonics) of the vibrating fork. For example, fear has a very distinct pulsing quality to it. Other emotions, such as guilt, grief, and anger, all have their own unique signatures, and their own unique locations in the biofield.
Eileen’s extreme sensitivity to vibration as well as a somewhat curious natural understanding of the language of vibration has enabled to her to “map the biofield” much like neuroscientists have mapped the brain. Over the course of her research, a universal pattern has appeared—the same emotions (or states of mind) appear to be housed in the same areas in the biofield and body in everyone.
The record of periods of stress or difficulty can be located in the biofield with the tuning forks- they show up as distortions or “noise” in the signal that is easily heard by the person receiving a session. Depending on where these distortions show up, Eileen is able to determine what age they were generated, whether it was trauma on the emotional, physical or mental levels, and specifically what emotions were involved.
Being able to identify the “source point” of the stressor in the field and neutralize it gently with sound has, in clinical practice, produced predictable, repeatable and consistent outcomes of symptom reduction and even elimination, sometimes in just a single session.
The Biofield Tuning process is designed to locate, identify, and interrupt patterns of sonic imbalance, making it possible for the individual to become “unstuck” and able to move forward in life with a more balanced perspective.
The Biofield Anatomy is outlined in detail in Eileen’s book, Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy, and is useful information for anyone involved in helping others to be well.
