The Uncomfortable Monarch

"U" is for Unknown

The unknown is a very unacceptable place to be these days.  Science is uncomfortable with the unknown, and at this point in human history science is King.  And what happens to the guy who makes the King uncomfortable?

"Off with his head"!

From my practice in the complementary healing arts of Reiki and Sound therapy I have come to realize that people are more than a collection of organs, bones and muscles wrapped around a personality.  But what exactly is that "more" made of?  We don't know....yet.

There was a time in the not-so-distant past when doctors scorned the idea that invisible germs were responsible for hospital infections.  In fact, this idea was so widely ridiculed that doctors would wipe their scalpel on their shoe prior to surgery just to prove how wrong it was.  Well, we all know how that story turned out, and how silly those doctors ended up looking.  

But what about the part of our story that's yet to be written?  The part when future historians say "There was a time when the idea of (INSERT CURRENT UNKNOWN QUALITY HERE) was widely scorned until (INSERT NAME OF RIDICULED SCIENTIST HERE) proved that ........"

Until that time comes and that part of our story is filled in, we in the complementary healing arts are just going to keep right on working with the unknown. 

May the King show a little mercy in the meantime.


  1. It's a tall order, but I'm trying to "meet" everyone too.
    Thanks for the positive feedback!

  2. Hi, Earth Dragon - I'm a Wood Dragon living in Nova Scotia whose life changed drastically when I began acupuncture treatment two years ago. As in, gave me my life back drastically. So I'm all over the complimentary healing arts thing.

    Glad to have met you.

  3. I believe that there is so much more to us than just what we see, so it only makes sense that complete healing should encompass more than what addresses the stuff that laboratories can measure.

    I’m A-Z Blogging and my “U” post is right here.

  4. @Julia Smith - always love to hear the recovery stories of those using complementary healing. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    @Word Nerd - agreed! I'm still hopefull that one day (probably not in my lifetime though) the scientists will figure it out.
