Polarity Therapy - Hermetic Medicine?
THE PRINCIPLE OF MENTALISM
THE UNIVERSE IS MENTAL - which doesn't mean that the whole world is "off its trolley" ( no matter how true that statement may appear on some particularly trying days ) but that the All is Infinite Mind which is the fundamental reality and the womb of all universes.
Dr. Stones Polarity model states that the world as we know it is perceived through our five senses and 'organised' by our minds interpretation of those perceptions. We create our own reality.
THE PRINCIPLE OF CORRESPONDENCE
WHATEVER IS BELOW IS LIKE UNTO THAT WHICH IS ABOVE, AND WHATEVER IS ABOVE IS LIKE UNTO THAT WHICH IS BELOW - this is clearly demonstrated in polarity in say the reflex patterns in the feet reflecting what is going on in the rest of the body and the correspondences of the five pointed star energy pattern where disturbances in the pelvis and digestive system can be carried upward in the body to find their correspondence in the breasts, shoulders and neck. The pattern of the six pointed star demonstrates beautifully the interlaced triangle representation of spirit and matter ie: that which is above being reflected downward into matter and that which is below reflecting back to spirit.
THE PRINCIPLE OF VIBRATION
NOTHING RESTS, EVERYTHING MOVES AND VIBRATES - this is fundamental to Polarity; the life energy is in constant motion if it is not, any impediment to its flow results in pain, disease and eventual death.
THE PRINCIPLE OF RHYTHM
EVERYTHING HAS ITS TIDES, ITS RISE AND FALL, ITS PEAKS AND TROUGHS; ITS EQUAL PENDULUM SWINGS TO THE RIGHT AND LEFT - Dr.Stone does not make great mention of this principle in say the way that the Chinese medical professional might but any practitioner of the art will know that timing is everything!
THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSATION
EVERY EFFECT HAS ITS CAUSE, EVERY CAUSE HAS ITS EFFECT, ALL PROCEEDING BY LAW, NEVER BY CHANCE - the exploration of this principle is what makes Polarity such a powerful companion on the path to self growth and knowledge.
THE PRINCIPLE OF GENDER
EVERYTHING HAS ITS MASCULINE AND FEMININE ASPECTS - the centripetal and centrifugal energy flows. Energy leaving a source on its outward, positive phase and returning to that source in its inward, negative phase to complete the cycle.
THE PRINCIPLE OF POLARITY
EVERYTHING IS DUAL, HAS POLES AND PAIRS OF OPPOSITES - I rest my case!!
Those of you who are familiar with the Polarity model will be able to find numerous examples of the afore mentioned principles and come to realise that we are indeed modern day alchemists turning the lead of mans everyday material existence into the spiritual gold that is our birthright.
