Ancient Alchemy Examines How Ancient Healing Traditions & The Cosmos
Ancient Alchemy is the root of modern chemistry and medicine. Ancient medicine prior to, and up to, the time of Hippocrates, was based on the proper management of life force energy, also known as Qi, Ki, and Kundalini.
In this episode we will be speaking with Jennifer Gehl where we will delve into the connection between the microcosm with the macrocosm and how discrepancies and misinformation about our history have contributed to faulty foundations upon which many of our health systems have been built.
About Jennifer Gehl
Jennifer Gehl, MHS, synthesizes her experience in the areas of music, energy medicine, Oriental Medicine, astrology, and yoga, to provide a unique Harmonic Astrology practice. Each person has a unique celestial configuration represented by the natal chart, which continues to be activated by current planetary cycles. She has a gift for interpreting the planetary story asking for greater harmony and healthier dialog in the life of the client as it relates to the collective whole. In her book The Science of Planetary Signatures in Medicine, with Marc S. Micozzi, MD, PhD, she reveals how discrepancies and misinformation about our history have contributed to faulty foundations upon which many of our systems have been built, including medicine.
When we look at the vast and intricate cosmos—galaxies, planets, organisms, organs, cells, molecules, atoms—there is a fundamental order, a music or harmony of the spheres. Our cells reflect the images of galaxies seen through our telescopes. We are the microcosm, reflecting the macrocosm of the heavens. Our ancestors understood these patterns and connections between humanity and the universe and developed spiritual and healing traditions in line with these cosmic truths. Yet in the 19th century, knowledge of these connections was set aside as medical science sought to create the “one size fits all” approaches to healing that dominate modern medicine today.
In this comprehensive exploration of the ancient alchemy and the celestial influences that underlie health and healing, Jennifer Gehl, with Marc Micozzi, examines how ancient and modern traditions of healing interconnect through the doctrine of signatures, “As above, so below”. She reveals how one’s celestial nature—the arrangement of the cosmos at the moment of birth—has implications for personal health and how each sign of the zodiac corresponds to parts of the body, the chakras, and specific plants, herbs, colors, and emotions. She explains how sound re-arranges forms according to the principles of harmony, leveraging not only the human self-regulating capacity to restore health but also that of the Earth to restore balance and harmony. Also explored are the recurrence of geometric forms in nature and how to apply this knowledge in sound healing and medical astrology. Weaving together the threads of ancient science and spirit that formed the original tapestry of medicine, Gehl explains how to restore the cosmic foundations of healing for personal, planetary, and universal health and wellbeing.
