HJ: Just like all protons have a cloud of electrons which encircle them, so too does the human body have an energy field surrounding it. After all, the body is composed at a fundamental level of atoms, each with their own protons and electrons — as above, so below, or in this case, as below, so above. The human body is an expression of the microcosm — the fundamental building blocks of the universe — in macro form. With this level of understanding, the study of the human assemblage point came into awareness. The assemblage point can be likened to the central proton in an atom around which the electron cloud forms. In the human body, the assemblage point is the auric field which encompasses the physical form. It is also known as the lightbody, the Koshas, or the torroidal field. Like any system of the body, it can fall out of balance when neglected and exposed to disharmonious energies, thoughts, foods, etc. … the usual culprits.
Thus assemblage point therapy has developed to better understand this phenomenon and bring the body mind and spirit back into balance. It is a very interesting field and one that deserves further study by anyone looking for greater health, clarity and balance in their life.
What is the Assemblage Point?
The assemblage point is one of the most fascinating aspects of every human being. We all have one. It affects everything about us – our appearance, our intelligence, our mood, our health, our way of experiencing the world, our response to ourselves, the environment, our interaction and relationships with others, our achievements, our beliefs and spirituality, our decisions. Yet most of us have never heard of the assemblage point and are unaware that we have one or, in some cases, more than one.
Over one hundred years ago science demonstrated that surrounding every proton is a cloud of electrons. This means that everything in the material universe, including the human body, is electrical energy. It is a scientific fact that energy systems are assembled from an epicentre. Galaxies, stars, planets, molecules and atoms are all energy systems that oscillate and, because they are oscillating, they all have a centre of rotation. The human body is a complex electrical energy system but, over a century later, its electrical properties have largely been ignored by medical science. Therefore, it is not surprising that conventional medical science has yet to recognise the existence of the epicentre of the human energy system, which is called the assemblage point. However, as subsequent chapters will clarify, those practitioners working with the assemblage point consider that, if it is not in its correct position in the centre of the chest, a displaced assemblage point is responsible for – or an indication of – the majority of physical and psychological disease. For example, chronic fatigue syndrome, clinical depression, postnatal depression and myalgic encephalomyelitis are all conditions where the patient’s assemblage point has dropped down to the liver area. (As most energy medicine practitioners realise, it is the liver that provides us with energy. If it is underactive, we feel exhausted and, conversely, if it is overactive, we feel stressed and may experience insomnia.) Adjusting the assemblage point location back to its original position can dramatically improve the patient’s health.
The position of the assemblage point, the epicentre of energy within the human energy field, is central to our psychological as well as physical existence and determines our physical health and state of mind. Its location also influences the state of other energy vortices within the body, the chakras, and the state of the glands and organs they are associated with, and the immune system, the posture and even the complexion. Once a patient has had their assemblage point shifted, they often leave our treatment room with eyes shining brightly, a healthy complexion and often more upright and taller as their posture improves. Often their change of attitude is also immediate, although this can take longer for some than others. The great majority will be aware of a greater calmness, sense of purpose, restoration of their sense of individual worth and appreciation of life and others. Even if the assemblage point is only fractionally out of position, or has started to grow rather loose (this phenomenon will be explained later in this book) the patient still gains greater vitality and peace of mind, plus an enhanced ability to ward off psychological and physical ailments. There is never a time when an assemblage point centring is not greatly advantageous for the patient. What many therapies take months to achieve, the return of the assemblage point to its correct location at the centre of the chest, near the thymus, can produce in minutes. Having now treated thousands of cases, I feel that recentring someone’s assemblage point is the most valuable thing you can do for another person.
To know the location of a person’s assemblage point is to know much about them. For instance, someone with a centred, or just slightly to the high right of centre, assemblage point at the front of the chest and centred at the back of the chest is likely to be happy, healthy, cheerful, and well balanced mentally and physically. S/he is probably interacting well with others, fairly positive about their present and future, confident, relaxed, enthusiastic, interested in life, others and the world they inhabit. We’ve all met them at times, people who for a period in their life (usually while their assemblage point remains centred) seem to have everything they need, cope with everything life throws at them, and have a seemingly smooth path in life. The fact that we remember them shows how unusual they are. We wish to emulate them. They are the ideal.
Until something changes in their life.
Why Assemblage Points May Shift
Something as simple as gradually increasing stress, a change in their relationship with a significant person or people in their life, a job change, an apparently slight accident, an illness which saps strength, even as trivial as a severe influenza or glandular fever, exposure to pollution, etc. – any of these things may shift the assemblage point from centre, either instantly, as in a road accident which jolts the energy field and causes shock to the whole system, or gradually, as in continual stress or a prolonged illness. We may notice the change in them either suddenly or perhaps over a period of time but cannot ignore the difference. There may be obvious mood or behavioural changes or more subtle physical changes, such as their complexion deteriorating, the eyes lacking lustre, the posture becoming less upright and confident or the hair or figure becoming less impressive. The person might start saying that they are “no longer themselves" or that they cannot do everything they used to, or feel as happy as they did.
We may notice all of these things about ourselves too, either suddenly due to a traumatic event, illness, accident or gradually over a period of time. We notice that we no longer cope with life’s challenges or everyday events as we once did and we sometimes look back to a time when we felt more “ourselves" than we do now. We are aware of somehow changing but often cannot explain why or even how we differ from the person we used to feel we were.
We might know what happened to us: a shock, a bereavement, a fall or motor accident, for example. But we cannot understand why we feel so different, why things we once enjoyed now seem unsatisfying, why we cannot perform physically or mentally in the way we once did, why life has somehow changed for us because we seem so different. Sometimes we call this state by a term such as “mid-life crisis", “the blues", “being run down", “feeling in need of change". We may embark on a course of therapy of various kinds, such as counselling, drugs to change mood, help sleep or address whatever symptoms have appeared as a result of the change we feel has taken place. However, usually we are still aware of the fundamental change in who we are, how we experience the world, how things appear to happen to us, how we seem to, and interact with, others.
Our assemblage point has moved. And, once it has, it is difficult for it to return to its previous place without being properly manipulated back to the centre of the chest. We call this an assemblage point shift. This book is about locating and shifting the assemblage point, the variety of ways in which this can be performed, the significance of off-centre locations, and the importance of having a centred assemblage point.
Some Simple Rules
At the risk of being too formulaic and repetitive, it is useful to summarise the theory behind assemblage point therapy as follows:
A human being is an independent oscillating energy field. (For further discussion of energy fields see Lynne McTaggart’s book, The Field.) All such energy fields must have an epicentre of rotation and that of the human energy field is what we call the assemblage point.
The location and entry angle of the assemblage point on the physical body dictates the shape, quality and texture of the energy field.
The shape and overall quality of the human energy field is related to the energy and activity of the nervous system, organs and glands in the physical body.
The biological activity of the nervous system, organs and glands determines the position of the assemblage point/s and vice versa.
The location/s and entry angle of the assemblage point/s and numbers of points seems to dictate the biological activity of the nervous system as well as that of the organs and glands including the brain.
The location and entry angle of the assemblage point or points dictates how an individual feels, behaves and how others perceive them.
Shifting out of position assemblage point locations to centre at the back and front of the chest will change the way an individual feels and behaves.
An effectively shifted assemblage point can remain centred for a considerable length of time, depending on various conditions.
Once someone is used to having a centred assemblage point and knows about the ability of the assemblage point to shift from centre, they will probably recognise if their point is out of centre.
In addition, it should be stressed that an assemblage point should only be shifted to centre by someone with sufficient knowledge and skill and ethical intention to perform the process well. It is easy to shift incorrectly through lack of ability or information, potentially causing harm to one’s patient. It is also easy to shift to a place other than centre deliberately, either to manipulate someone psychologically or cause physical harm. Not surprisingly perhaps assemblage point knowledge has remained secret, not mentioned in writing until the 1960s, previously only handed down from shaman to shaman, and possibly in a much more sketchy fashion than that known and developed today. We do not know how often misuse was made of the assemblage point – but we do know that misuse was possible.
That is the negative side of assemblage point studies. The positive side is much greater and is very bright indeed. We are gathering ever-increasing knowledge about the assemblage point, its locations and their significance, and methods to find and shift the assemblage point. As our skill increases in breadth, it also increases in depth; and the potential for enhancing human health and wellbeing via assemblage point work is becoming very exciting. It is not only possible to create all the benefits of having a centred assemblage point – but this can be done in such a way that particular types of vibrational frequencies are introduced at the same time, with a variety of other benefits. Assemblage point techniques are advancing all the time.
Should anyone worry about the possibility of having an out of location assemblage point, or be concerned that someone might shift their assemblage point to a location which is not ideal, I would say: discover what you can about the assemblage point, read this book, become responsible for your own assemblage point and be aware of symptoms in those you care about. It is not difficult to have your assemblage point centred correctly (and in a way which leaves no doubt about its central location), and experience the benefits that brings. It is also easy to recognise if you have been incorrectly treated and/or have an off-centre location. Learning the facts about the assemblage point can be very beneficial. Not only is shifting another person’s assemblage point often the most valuable thing you can do for them, but hearing how they progress thereafter is usually extremely rewarding.
As William James said, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind." Our generation has the power not only to alter our attitude of mind but our entire state of being on every level and for the better. To do so, we often do not need courses of mind-altering drugs, lengthy counselling sessions, hypnotherapy or electric shock treatment (all of which patients have been able to avoid as a result of having their assemblage point centred), but the ability to recognise if we need an assemblage point shift and, if so, to obtain one of the highest standard. And, if we have the aptitude and ability, to learn how to centre the assemblage point of others. This book, I hope, will inspire others to learn about the assemblage point and its significance within our lives and our world.
