The Science and Spirituality of Emotions in HealthCare

Posted by Marilyn Carpenter on April 7, 2020
quote on attitude


For me, the whole notion of HealthCare has always meant the joining of science and spirituality, with health rooted in science and care connected to spirituality – our universal ‘oneness’ - guided by the golden rule – treat others as you would have them treat you. Love, kindness, joy, gentleness, patience, and goodness to name a few outward emotions we all like to receive from others, especially our caregivers. Growing up in the 70’s, the doctors in my small town often made house calls. The doctor’s kind and gentle “bedside manner” meant everything to us.

Our HealthCare System

Our current healthcare system in the U.S. is primarily an Allopathic system which finds its science rooted in genes and chemistry. Additionally, Allopathic care is focused on treating the disease, illness or condition. In contrast, Homeopathic Medicine treats the person. Alternative Medicine, like Homeopathic, has its science rooted in energy, with the foundational belief that we are bioelectric in nature.

Our current healthcare system has also become specialized, rushed, and impersonal. Advances in modern medicine leaned far in the direction of the science and efficiencies of operations to serve the masses, and perhaps a bridge too far away from the true spirit of care.

Have we lost more than we gained with the advances in modern medicine? When the spiritual components to our healthcare system are severed or compromised for the science advancements and efficient operations of the system, we can expect to lose much.

Breakthroughs in Science

However, new breakthroughs are returning us to this convergence of science and spirituality in healthcare because these breakthroughs reveal - our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and actions are the best indicators of our wellness overall, and, for our bodies ability to heal in the face of illness, injury or disease.

Let’s take a brief review of the relevant and important breakthroughs in science that are the forces converging science and spirituality:

Quantum Theory is the settled science of our day, even though many scientists don’t fully understand it yet. Quantum Physics replaced Newtonian Physics that is based on matter. “Newtonian physics is limited to what we can see with our senses and big enough to be measured on a large scale - like Newton observing the apple falling from the tree. That is how he came up with the laws of motion - such as gravity.” 1

Quantum Physics is science dealing with the behavior of matter and light on the atomic and subatomic scale … everything is energy.

Thought is energy - Every thought influences every single cell of your body at quantum speed, which is faster than the speed of light. Our thinking changes the physical. Mind is over matter. Mind influences matter.2

Energy Fields - Science has proven that the heart puts out an electromagnetic field. If you have ever had an EKG, you will have seen the printout. That electromagnetic field extends to at least 15 feet in every direction. The purpose of this field is to send information to every cell in the body. If all is well, it can broadcast health and well-being, or it can also send out negative messages.

This energy field goes beyond our five senses. It is influenced by the power of intention. It exists within a part of a universal ocean of energy and information which can be accessed by the human mind under the right conditions.1

Emotion Code

With these breakthroughs, it becomes clearer how the science of Quantum Physics and Energy are connected to our thought-created emotions. All we need do is remember that, in the quantum field, everything is energy.

The body is made up of pure energy. Every organ, every bit of tissue … indeed, every cell of the body is made up of energy. But there’s more. All of the non-physical aspects of yourself — your thoughts, your beliefs, your memories, your emotions — are also made up of energy. When viewed from this energetic standpoint, you can see just how easy it really is to affect change … but not all energy is created equal!” 3

A Glimpse of Senior Living Communities

We can apply these ideas of emotions as energy in a real-world healthcare scenario. Imagine for a moment that you are an aging senior and you now live a Senior Living Community. You no longer live in your home - you no longer live amongst your family. The people who reside there are strangers. The care givers and medical practitioners on staff are strangers. They come into and out of your personal living space often. Your schedule during the day is often aligned with the institution – when you eat, rest, take meds, social time, etc. If you have family close by, you relish their visits and their advocacy to help you handle the difficult or unpleasant aspects of this new life you have. If you don’t have family close by, or don’t have any family at all, imagine how this would all contribute to your emotions, in the moment, throughout each day.

Now, imagine that the people who can make a difference in how you feel contribute through their own emotions and presence to make you feel safe, secure, loved, respected and valued. The caregivers’ interactions and engagements you experience are full of light, fun, humor, interest about you, concern for your wellbeing?

How do these wonderful, high frequency energy interactions impact your emotions and feelings? They are lifting. They are difference makers for how you experience each day and how you manage through the ups and downs of your new life. And, as these emotions resonate high energy frequencies in your body with your cells, tissues and organs – they favorably impact the health of your physiological body!

On the other hand, imagine that these same people who can make a difference in your life entered your living space with a basket of negative emotions inside them. They don’t smile. They are preoccupied with themselves and their negative feelings as they interact with you. They may be frustrated, angry, scared, or in fear about something in their life and they bring that negative energy to the community. They take no notice of how you are, how you are feeling. They brush aside your requests perhaps because it makes more work for them. They are there to do a physical job and they aren’t aware that emotional intelligence is part of their job, because their management hasn’t yet made the connection between extraordinary care giving that begins with the caregiver’s own emotions and emotional state.

Shaping Culture for Extraordinary Healthcare

Where we place our attention is where we focus our energy. Wellzesta embraced this fundamental behavior concept when they designed their products to organize around the eight dimensions of wellness, which help users feel empowered and live well with purpose. When an entire community within a Senior Living Community – leaders, care givers and senior residents alike – have intentions to shape the culture towards extraordinary care and living – what are the possibilities?

Wellzesta products intend to help users focus their attention on elevated emotions throughout the day for both seniors and caregivers. They also measure engagement to provide data insights that help those managing facilities know their community better.

In addition, Wellzesta products are shown to improve staff collaboration, reduce turnover by lifting the culture, thus improving the quality of their work environment.

Overwhelming data provided by doctors, healers, and researchers show that elevated emotions are fundamental to our wellness. If you are in a position of influence for shaping community culture, remember this idea – where we focus our attention is where we focus our energy!
