Esoteric Acupuncture goes a step further than treating the body for disease. It is a system designed for the practitioner to create a wellness mindset and allow consciousness to expand for them and the patient. “Focusing on wellness will automatically start the process of prevention of disease.”1
This form of acupuncture was developed by Mikio Sankey who holds a Ph.D. in Oriental Medicine, and is a Licensed Acupuncturist. Esoteric Acupuncture has been evolving since 1995. Today, there are numerous protocols to choose from for different reasons. The original 361 acupuncture points are used. However, needles are inserted in a specific order and in different configurations of triangles. Sankey names the various protocols “Encoding Patterns.”
Whereas regular acupuncture moves the qi linearly through the meridians, in Esoteric Acupuncture a morphic resonance takes place that allows for something new to occur. Morphic resonance is possible due to the general collective consciousness. The triangles created by the needle design make a spin pattern at the entry point of the needles. This way the acupuncture treatments can be expanded.
There are four main aspects of Esoteric Acupuncture:
First, the practitioner pierces the physical body with acupuncture needles at exact sites, but in a very specific sequencing order using Encoding Patterns. The process unlocks the gateways to the finer frequency levels of consciousness stored in the planes above the mental planes.
Second, the treatments balance and strengthen the opposing energy fields. For example, the heart/love versus the kidneys/fear. The Encoding Pattern chosen depends on what the patient needs for balance.
Third, Esoteric Acupuncture can assist in accessing Ageless Wisdom Teachings. These help to find or discover an individual’s puzzle piece in life. It may answer the questions of who they are and their life purpose. The patient needs to be very still inside to enter a level of consciousness to reach their Inner-self, Higher-self, and Spiritual Heart Center.
Lastly, Esoteric Acupuncture is designed to assist with discernment. Patients are able to make wiser choices in life, or at least guide them on a path of least resistance while on their journey toward staying on their individual inner, Spiritual Heart Path.
Staying on a Heart Path isn’t only an Esoteric Acupuncture notion. HeartMath 2 provides tools that connect us with the heart of who we truly are for living healthier, fulfilling lives and building a brighter future. Bringing heart and mind together for wellness.
Books translated from China tell us they knew something similar thousands of years ago. For example, Claude Laree, S.J, and Elizabeth Rochat de la Vallee in Rooted in Spirit3 say, “To be effective, and at the same time not violate the organism, the acupuncturist goes all the way to the origin of the patient’s life, to that place where the Spirits are rooted, to the ben shen.” Ben is the root or the source. Shen is the spirit (consciousness) and lives in the Heart. They reflect an important principle in acupuncture therapy as recounted in The Heart in Ling Shu Chapter 8.4
Esoteric Acupuncture is close to the bone on moving our planet forward by creating and maintaining wellness through this unique system. Is it possible to maintain wellness and never get ill or diagnosed with a disease? That’s how it’s supposed to be. I think. Wasn’t that the cosmic plan?
This unique system of acupuncture requires years of study and a clean body, mind and spirit. An acupuncturist must be clear of all negative frequencies in order to have the capacity to create wellness. I wonder how many in our society can actually live this way. We are subjected to poor quality food, air, and exposure to numerous toxins every day. It’s inescapable. Is it worthy of study and practice? Or, should we continue treating autoimmune diseases, pulled muscles, anxiety, insomnia, pain, fertility, and on and on. In other words, should we just continue on our current path of learning how to treat disease and make sure we quantify and qualify it in our studies? Or is it our goal to strategize how to make more money with this medicine? I hope not.
We have something at our fingertips. We have possibility. We have a way to reconnect with our whole selves. The ancient meanings of the acupuncture points are used like a key to unlock our long hidden nature. Esoteric Acupuncture allows us to connect to all of our energetic layers: physical, auric, etheric, astral and causal/spiritual bodies.
Time is of the essence to change and re-program the energetic fields of humankind. These Encoding Patterns form geometric energy shapes. Triangles, merkabahs, and pyramids are created with needles on the body. These shapes open doors that act as gateways. Having the ability of traveling on the energetic and spiritual planes is a potential. These Encoding Patterns work not only on the higher levels, but also down to the dense physical body. Here is where we see greater health and wellness.
The Chinese talked about something similar thousands of years ago. Esoteric Acupuncture is the 21st Century version. This could be the beginning of a movement that can take humanity to the next level of wellness.
