Naomi Lake, esoteric healer and educator, and Lorraine Hurley
a medical doctor working as a health consultant and educator,
share their backgrounds and discuss a relatively new technology
they both use in their individual health care practices commonly
referred to as quantum biofeedback. How each of them came
to an awareness of and interest in the technology, and their
beliefs about what the technology provides and represents,
is the topic of their discussion.
Their respective professional backgrounds would be considered
by most to be at extreme polarities on the continuum of health
care. Esoteric or shamanic-based healing is the practice of
seeing the source of dis-ease and imbalance in a person’s
whole energy field while allopathic medicine, as practiced
today in a traditional setting, is the practice of responding
to the grossly mechanical or physical manifestation of disease.
The idea of creative consciousness in health was for a time
lost in science. Today, with the scientific validation of
subtle energy fields (see information at
foot of page) as well as other work with quantum physics
on consciousness, we have incredible new opportunities and
options for weaving a healing matrix.
LORRAINE HURLEY Hi Naomi, thank you
for discussing your work with me and for providing me with
an opportunity to share my own experiences. I am fascinated
by your background and by how you have integrated this technology
into your work. I understand that both of your parents are
physicians and you considered medical school yourself early
on. How were you led to become an esoteric and shamanic healer?
NAOMI LAKE Since early childhood I have
been able to see colors, shapes and forms around people. My
father, a surgeon, and mother a pediatrician, questioned what
I was seeing and actually took me to their ophthalmologist
friends! In my early teens I was introduced to some of the
early esoteric literature of the Theosophical Society and
learned that what I was seeing were auras and chakras. I studied
quantum physics to understand what these colors were, and
Eastern meditation practices to understand the unification
of body, mind and spirit.
I majored in anthropology at
UC Berkeley, focusing my
work on cross-cultural healing
techniques that led me
into the study of
Shamanism. I moved
in 1979 with my 3 sons and opened an
office in town. In my healing practice, I
used the aura drawings as diagnostic and
therapeutic tools, helping my clients
move into conscious health.
Throughout the 80s and early 90s I
taught healthcare practitioners throughout
the area to see and work with the
aura in very specific ways.
After moving to Crestone, Colorado in the mid 90s, I went
to the Peruvian jungle with a small group of healers to study
with a shaman there. I was introduced to the powerful visionary
medicine called Ayahuasca. During those journeys with the
medicine I was able to see the inter-connectedness of all
living things. The plant spirit doctors showed me how to see
and work with blockages in people’s energy fields, at
extremely deep and profound levels. I felt I was actually
in the quantum holographic field.
HURLEY So it was an appreciation for
the fact that there were not only esoteric but scientific
explanations of what you experienced that moved you towards
the integration of technology into your work?
LAKE Yes, three years ago I was introduced
to a leading edge technology called the LIFE System and was,
frankly, blown away by its capacity to access and balance
the specificity of dis-ease. At first, not comfortable with
the use of technology for ‘healing work’, I made
it a point to meet the developers of the system and found
them to be impeccable healers with enormous integrity.
HURLEY Wow! My own journey is quite
different than yours but has had a similar effect upon me.
I grew to see the interconnectedness of things as I went deeper
into what healing is and what the meaning of suffering is.
In my case the dis-ease of addiction was my diligent and gifting
teacher. Both my parents were alcoholics and before I was
an adult, I too was solidly in the throes of the dis-ease
I left school at the age of 16 and in my late twenties
decided to further my formal education. I obtained a GED and
a B.S. in chemistry from U. Mass and then began work as a
research assistant at Boston University School of Medicine.
I began medical school at the age of 33.
I was in practice as a family physician for only a short
time when I realized that there was far more that I didn’t
know, than what I actually did. My experiences, both personal
and professional, testified daily to the spiritual, mind and
heart dimensions of health and life, but my traditional allopathic
training had not equipped me to meet people with adequate
answers or solutions to their problems. I became deeply distressed
with the limits imposed by and on the practice of allopathic
I began studying alternative methods and philosophies
of healing and this led to dramatic changes in the way I work.
The study of functional medicine and then quantum physics,
in tandem with an inspired reworking of my spiritual beliefs,
was my “Ayahuasca.” I began to see the web or
matrix you yourself describe. It was not a visual seeing but
a quality of understanding that eventually evolved. So I expanded
my work to accommodate the vision I was being given of what
health actually is and that is how quantum biofeedback came
into my awareness and work.
LAKE Yes, and although you and I use biofeedback
systems created by different people, the technology is basically
the same. It is a marriage of quantum physics and computer
technology. Thanks to quantum physics we now know that everything
in creation can be characterized as a distinct frequency of
vibration. Whether atom, molecule, cell, organ, system, thought,
belief, emotion, or discreet energy field (see sidebar), entire
being or group of beings; each possesses a signature of vibration
that distinguishes itself.
During a reactivity
are sent into the
body through a
wrist and ankle
and/or reflects back these frequencies in
proportion to the stress or harmony
experienced by this challenge and feeds
back to the instrument. The computer
analyzes the feedback mathematically
and presents the information on the
computer screen to the practitioner.
HURLEY Naomi, the visualization you
use with your clients while working is quite provocative.
Will you share it here?
LAKE Sure. During a session, which can be
either in person or at a distance, I invite my client to visualize
a multidimensional cocoon, web or matrix of very fine fibers
and surrounding them at a distance from their body. The web
represents their field of consciousness. This is the template
from which they are manifest. It is the result of their cumulative
experience including imprints from genetic, karmic and cultural
influences as well as the effects of their environment, relationships,
beliefs, thought forms and behavior. I ask them to invite
into this clearly defined matrix, experts from many fields
including specialists in endocrinology, naturopathy, herbology,
homeopathy, metaphysics, acupuncture, infectious disease,
nutrition, toxicology, psychiatry and chiropractic to name
a few. These experts take note of where a stress, tear or
break is in their matrix. They then translate this information
through the lens of their field of knowledge and give this
to the main coordinator (the computer). The computer prioritizes
the information into a list. It is an accurate analysis of
the condition of the person on levels of body, mind and spirit.
HURLEY I love that! It is the ability
of the technology to translate these interpretations into
the common language of vibration coupled with the practitioners’
understanding of interconnections, systems and hierarchies
that allows us to use any desired combination of these to
assist a client in their healing process.
LAKE Yes, I use the LIFE System to help
me identify the specifics of a disease and to balance or neutralize
anything in the way of my client’s optimum health. How
are you integrating your allopathic background with the use
of this technology? What sort of people come to you? With
what sort of problems?
HURLEY Many of my clients have just
begun to self-actualize. They do not yet have a full functional
or quantum view of health. They have problems ranging from
life-threatening cancer to simple hypertension and everything
in between. I use the technology to convey stress in terms
they are accustomed to such as allergens, toxins, pathogens,
hormonal imbalance, nutrient insufficiencies etc. This information
usually validates that a change in lifestyle or increase in
awareness is necessary and provides my client with a tangible
focus of control. But I also evaluate and share with my client
the psycho/emotional/spiritual stresses that are being revealed
during the analysis. I provide assistance by attenuating imbalances
at all levels as they are encountered and by educating, educating,
educating throughout this process. Together we develop lifestyle
programs that acknowledge and attend to them across the full
body/mind/heart/spirit continuum of life. I have seen remarkable
things happen for people.
And how is your work going?
LAKE Many of my clients come with varying
complaints...from bad backs to insomnia, digestive problems
to anxiety and depression, lupus to Parkinson’s. I work
with many of my clients at a distance. As a trainer, I give
a lot of demonstrations of the LIFE System. I am finding that
people in attendance are being affected...that actually the
field is being assessed and treated! This is HUGE...in terms
of being able to work with large groups of people at once.
But that gets us into a discussion of the Quantum Hologram...and
there’s not enough time here to discuss that!
HURLEY No there isn’t, but readers
interested in expanding their awareness of what energy healing
is should begin to explore this and other related concepts.
We are truly on the verge of huge shifts in our comprehension
of consciousness and how that affects physical manifestation.
The marriage of ancient wisdom to the insights and technology
of contemporary genius is laying the foundation for a truly
awakened and powerful humanity.

Human Subtle Energy Systems
Subtle Energetic Bodies Discreet
energy fields. Associated with living substance. Made
of matter less dense than physical matter, i.e of a
higher vibrational frequency. Defined by a particular
range of frequency. The higher the frequency the less
dense the field. Energy flows from higher frequencies
to lower frequencies.
Most Dense to Least
The following subtle energy systems do not
represent all known, but represent those that have been
Physical Body Material substance.
Etheric Body Holographic or energy
template that guides the development and growth of the
Astral Body vehicle of emotional aspects
of an individual.
Mental Thought forms (instinctive,
intellectual and spiritual). Vehicle through which self
manifests and expresses concrete ideas.
Causal Closest thing to that which
we call our higher self. Deals with essence.
Zero Point Essence. Called different
things by different traditions i.e. Holy Spirit, Divine
Mother, Cosmic Energy.
Holographic Principle Each piece contains
the whole (as in every cell of the body contains all
the DNA necessary to construct the whole body).
Chi A system of energy that interfaces
between the physical and etheric bodies through meridians.
Chakras Specialized energy centers
that act as transformers. They connect us to the multi-dimensional
universe. They take in energy of a higher vibrational
frequency (than physical matter) and assimilate it for
use by the physical body. 7 major chakras – each
corresponds to a major nerve plexus and glandular center.
They play a vital role in regulation of various states
If any layer of the subtle body system is blocked,
energy will not flow freely down into the next (grosser)
level. From that level onward, there will be significant
deficiencies of energy.
Blockages in any of the subtle layers prevent Essence
Energy from flowing freely into the material body. This
is why so many diseases are co-influenced or co-created
by blockages in subtle bodies. This also explains why
our psychological, emotional and spiritual state affects
our physical body.
