Operating on Different Paradigms

Diagram of operating on different planes of existenceNancy Smeltzer, MFA

When considering the different ways of looking at how life and healing works, it’s important to consider different planes of existence or the paradigms of Life. Each has a different set of rules or ways of looking at things, so knowing about their existence helps to know when two people are coming from different ways of viewing the world. It would be like two people trying to play  a game, with one person using the rules for poker and another using the rules for Monopoly. Both would feel that they weren’t being understood and a lot of “talking past each other” would occur. Lets’s consider how this situation would play out in talking about healing an issue.

On the Newtonian paradigm, cause and effect is the main operating principle. Someone does this to you, and therefore you react in this way. Perpetrators and victims are major players on this plane of existence, and often there is a sense of helplessness when faced with the inevitable sea of emotions. Modern Western society supports this way of being, and few ways are taught as to how to deal with life on this plane of existence. Most of the modern media outlets portray people as existing on this level and so there are few models for other ways of being.

I apologize to any physicists who are reading this post, as I know that the word “quantum” has a clear scientific definition. However, the phrase “quantum plane of existence”, or similiar wording, has become so well integrated into alternative healing circles, that I’m using it to explain this level of existence. On this level, people affirm that we are powerful spiritual beings who have come down to the planet at this time and place to learn the lessons that we have signed on to complete for this lifetime. They also realize that they are, at least on an unconscious level, creating their own existence. The trouble, I find with my clients, is that while many people believe the above, there are few examples of techniques on how to more consciously and effectively manifest what you desire in your life. More will be written on this topic in the future. For right now, I just want to introduce the concept that there are at least two planes of existence co-existing on the planet.

I think that you can see how problems would arise when two people are interacting, but with two different sets of rules. The first might be bemoaning his most recent form of chaos in his life. The second person is offering to heal the issue, and the first person sees the second as being insensitive to the issue at hand. Both are seeing the world through their own lenses, and one way isn’t better than the other. However, in my opinion, if one wishes to heal an issue and be done with it, than the Quantum level is a more optimal one from which to heal.

How do you feel about the above concepts? How have you experienced being in one paradigm and dealing with someone else operating in another?

About Nancy Smeltzer

I'm passionate about long distance spiritual and alternative healing, having had a successful practice now for over ten years. My clients work with me over the phone and on Skype from all over the USA and Canada, as well as Switzerland, Russia, and Australia. I specialize in helping people heal their negative repeating patterns of behavior and remove the stuck energy in their unconscious minds. By doing that, they can quit going round and round in circles,. repeating the same mistakes, and move forward to having the life of their dreams. Besides my holistic healing practice, I've also been professionally creating art quilts and other fiber arts for over 30 years. My specialty is contemporary beaded art quilts. On my web site, I bill myself as the "Self Proclaimed Button and Bead Queen of Maryland (USA)." My recent works have images that are based on what I see when I tap into a person's energy field and are called Meditation Gardens. These visionary art pieces are the perfect place for that person to play and meditate. In my spare time, I'm a rabid, avid "dirty nails" gardener, composing scenes with plants. Sometimes, I come inside so dirty that my clothes have to go straight into the washing machine; they're too dirty for the dirty clothes hamper! -The Official Google + site for Nancy Smeltzer
