Seeds of Spirit: The Harvest of P. P. Quimby

By Robert Waterman

The words were like keys that opened the pages of my heart. I was young. Like Paul, I wanted to be “face to face.” Like John, I wanted to see the “sky open.” Like Jesus, I wanted to be “one with.” Like the Pentacost, I wanted to experience the “mystical wind.”  Ancient seeds fell on fertile soul. One day they sprouted. The sky did open and after that I could gaze into the seeming inner darkness. Images and metaphoric scriptures emerged. It seemed that the true message was for the outer word to awaken the inner ones. The “wind” of spirit spoke to me through my soul.
I began meeting people who experienced and delivered the ancient teachings in a real and tangible way. No more dogma covering the shadows of fear nor political agendas passing as inspired guidance. After my fragile beginning and many interesting discussion with people who had no experience to offer, I was meeting people who experienced spirit and could do things. Christ, to them, was real, up close and personal, in contrast to abstract, historical and dogmatic.
I met Phenius Parkhurts Quimby in Alamogordo, New Mexico. That may seem strange to say, since he allegedly passed in 1866. Trust me, things are never as they seem. That was a scientific principle for Quimby. I went to Alamogordo to study with Dr. Hunter who I met in Santa Barbara, California, in 1966. She was like a circuit rider. She traveled around the United States and parts of Canada, teaching and giving readings similar to Edgar Cayce. She went into a trance state, and an alter-ego would speak that called itself Dr. Gordon, who subsequently revealed that he was Quimby in his past life.
Dr. Hunter, John Clark MacDougall, and Ellavivian Power developed an energy healing that they called Aura Balancing. When I met Dr. Hunter in Santa Barbara, I had dropped out of the University of Santa Barbara. I was overwhelmed and stuck. When my first Aura Balancing was over, my reality was entirely different. I was clear, aligned, motivated and alert. I re-enrolled and soon graduated. I had directly experienced the healing of Quimby. In my session, Dr Hunter, and her colleague, cleared blocks and congestion in my aura. The aura is a morphic field that surrounds and penetrates the physical body. The beliefs held in this field inform our health and mental emotional balance. The physicist, David Bohm, called the field the implicate order. Sheldrick called it the morphogenetic, or morphic, field, meaning form making field.
The process was simple. Through a prayer the practitioner aligned with the Holy Spirit (wholeness), merged fields with the client, engaged blocks and distortions detected in the field, dissolved or balanced these aberrations. The balancing actions occurred through a spiritual action enabled by the practitioner’s witness. The session ended when the field appeared light filled and  felt whole, smooth and silky. The practitioner then disentangled from the client’s field through a closing process. The practitioner began with an intention to serve the client, but made no promises.  Jesus said, “what you tell God in secret will be given to you openly and abundantly.” That is an amazing statement. In other words, in the balancing the intention is given into the wholeness of spirit while the practitioner engages the point in the field and watches God work according to its own wisdom rather that the agenda of the practitioner. Change happens and client’s heal and transform. At the time of my first experience, I was amazed. My amazement continues. Each session is a predictable mystery.  The physical symptom may change and the healing is a change of heart. That is not an excuse. It is a truth. A love filled life is the greatest healing.
One day when I was in a class with Dr. Hunter/Gordon, I looked over at her, and clear as day, there sat Quimby, for a moment, then his image was gone. From then on, I felt I had personally met the man and that I had a collegial relationship with him. Cool. I could say: “well Park (his nickname) what do you think of this?
Quimby, like quantum physicists of today, looked at “science” as everything outside of what we conventionally call science. This is the same contrast as Newtonian and Quantum Physics. Seeds of Spirit. In his day, Quimby sat with his client and explained to them that dis-ease was caused by beliefs that blocked and distorted the easy access to the inner Christ. He called his approach the “Science of the Christ.” Once the client had reconciled their beliefs, Quimby “worked with them silently.”  These same steps appear in the Balancing work: Merge with the client in the spirit of the Christ, give to God the intention to heal, engage the blocking beliefs and distorted energy, deconstruct, then witness and observe the transformation of the energy as information, which then informs the client’s reality differently.  The client experiences healing. This healing manifest through the highest good from the perspective of the Soul, so it is often more then expected and is frequently different than expected.
As a renewal of the healing taught by Jesus, Quimby was actually a second seeding. Through his teaching as Dr. Hunter’s alter ego, Aura Balancing developed beginning in the early 1960’s. The Aura Balancing was like a third seeding. The way a seed works is that you formulate its’ matrix and then plant it in human experience. It grows in the collective field of the unconscious. As balancing evolved, I expanded it into Noetic Balancing. I did this because, over time, our experience revealed a much broader action than the personal aura. We were engaging a field that was the entire matrix of which the aura, as we understood it, was the immediate morphic field of the body.
More recently, those original seeds are sprouting through seemingly unrelated sources. A morphic field began with Jesus and Quimby that is expanding into increasingly new application through the consciousness of humanity. When we connect with this field, we can know what the field knows.
One of the more dramatic contemporary harvests is Matrixenergetics, developed by Dr. Richard Bartlet. Perhaps, I should say, continually developed by Dr. Bartlet. Essentially, he merges with the matrix–what I call the noetic field and Bohm calls the implicate order–and moves into a rapport with the client with the intention to heal often using the symptom of the client as a starting reference, notices and connects with two points on the client’s physical body or in their field, drops his consciousness into the wholeness, and the reality of the client changes. Where have we seen this program before?
I would like to include one other healer in this discussion, Vianna Steible. She developed Theta Healing. Through her conversations with God, she applies the same elements. She connects with All That Is, either through merging with the matrix of going up and connecting with the field of universal love. Once connected, she places an intention with the Father-Mother God, All That Is, by stating that it is commanded that the change in condition occur. She gives thanks. Moves her awareness to witness and observes the healing occur, watching the change in reality.  She continues to observe until the transformation is complete.
From the seeding of Quimby, the harvest is great. Noetic Balancing, Thetahealing, Re-connective Therapy, and Matrixenergetics are examples that I know about that apply the essential elements of the Science of the Christ. The “silent work” as Quimby refered to it is key. Would you like to test the waters?

Be with a friend, client, colleague. Sit or stand. Engage your connectedness and through that kinship you are in rapport with each other. With your hand, touch the frequency of this rapport. You can sense it clearly with your touch, and in the rapport of the surrounding field. Give thanks for the presence of living love. Give thanks for the presence of the Christ and Holy Spirit, if you like. Give thanks for the presence of Allah, or the Buddha consciousness, if you like. Give thanks. Realize that this is your reality and that your colleague is a mirror within that realty as you are a mirror within hers, within his. There is nothing to fix, no problem to solve. Ask your colleague to tell you their concern. This is the intention you will give to God, All That is, through your connectedness, your kinship. You are involved in Divine collaboration to shift realty to one that is preferred. The intention brackets or selects the frequency and points of contact, the index, the reality transformation. With your fingertips touch the indexed points in the field of your colleague. This is a measure. You might touch the body, if that is where the field points are. You will feel the contact. As you find the contact points, align in your connectedness, in your center. Take a deep breath, and drop into the wholeness, the All That is. You are the stone dropping into the oceanic arms of All That Is. Move with the experience. Ask what she/he is experiencing. What is your experience?

The harvest of the Quimby seed has just begun.

The basic elements are:

•    Be present relinquishing any need or agenda to fix.
•    Connect through your kinship with the matrix of  All That Is.
•    Engage through morphic field with serving intention.
•    Drop into your heart, releasing intention.
•    Be present and observe the way of universal love.
