Abstract

            The contribution of the present research lies in the presentation of the unique format for integrated medicine, definition of the 32 intelligences, and in the construction of an instrument for the measurement of the subject’s level in each one of the 32 intelligences through which medical centers, therapists, and education practitioners can create their unique treatment mix personally adjusted to each and every patient or student.

            The world, according to the Book of Creation, is divided into 32 paths. Every path includes variables that suit the frequency of the path. Treatment of one of the variables will favorably influence the other variables on the same path.

            All the variables that are commensurate with the path frequency embody the human potential of the path and it is called ‘intelligence’, or in the language of the Book of Creation, ‘wonderful paths of wisdom’. Intelligence can be corrected, maintained, and improved, like a muscle, by free will.

            Treatment with integrated medicine is performed using ‘lousky medicines’, which are simple human actions directed at receiving or giving, such as hugging, sleeping, showering, walking, smiling, laughing, drinking, taking a trip, shopping, and going to the sea. In addition, the following treatment techniques are used: massage, healing, acupuncture, Bach flowers, healing plants, psychotherapy, the arts, dreams, psychodrama, meditation, guided imagery, creation cards, chirology, poetry, stories, process, experience journey, and nutrition. .

            Integrated medicine is an innovative and practical development of the Book of Creation into an integrated educational and treatment method – holistic spiritual psychotherapy for the balance of the body and mind, through the 32 intelligences with the integration of the arts. Integrated medicine is a format for the inclusion, association, connection, and integration of the different treatment and therapy techniques in the world of medicine, in all their forms, for the creation of a whole integrated medicine

Integrated medicine is medicine that integrates methods of treatment from different worlds and dimensions (physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual). It focuses on both body and mind; it is an integration of, on the one hand, scientific medicine, namely medications and operations, with, on the other hand, holistic, methods of treatment. These latter methods of treatment include physical methods, such as acupuncture, movement, massage, and nutrition, emotional methods such as integration of the arts, healing, and psychodrama, intellectual methods such as guided imagery, conversation, and querying, and spiritual methods such as meditation, feedback, forgiveness, and prayer. Integrated medicine provides a solution for the different aspects of the person’s body and mind and sees all the person’s parts and dimensions as combining into one whole unit.

            There are five main characteristics for the creation of a pattern and framework for integrated medicine through 32 intelligences, for medical centers and for therapists: scale (ladder) of health, the motive of change, lousky medicines, the ‘basket’ of treatments, and circle of therapists. The five main characteristics are the outcome of a pattern of 32 paths (intelligences). According to the Book of Creation, the 32 intelligences are a system of rules that control Creation. Through them, man and the universe are created and through them man creates his world.

            Intelligence is ability, and the definition of ability is as the definition of a void. Abilities appear in four dimensions – physical, emotion, intellectual, and spiritual – the ability to identity emotional lacks, the ability to define desire, the ability to change an approach, and the ability to determine and realize goals. The four dimensions are related in that they create one unit that seeks a relationship and balance among the dimensions.

            Every one of the 32 intelligences appears in every person, to some extent. Every person has his own unique profile of intelligences, and this profile shapes his personality, his perceptions, and his understanding of the world in order to prevent mishaps, solve problems, and achieve objectives. People can be intelligent in different areas, such as drawing, poetry, marketing, drama, sport, organization, teaching, treatment, playing instruments, writing, editing, management, sales, entrepreneurship, business, finance, design, and in the lingual and logical-mathematical domains.

            Each one of the five characteristics of integrated medicine is like a part of the body, and action that integrates between the five parts is what enables balanced and whole movement.

            According to the vision of integrated medicine, in the operating room of the medical centers there will be a physician who is trained in holistic methods and a holistic therapist who has received basic scientific medical training. The physician and the therapist will assess the patient and will reach a joint decision on the continuation of the process. The holistic treatment will include work in the holy space, personalized treatments, work in development groups, and support groups for the patients and their families. This way ensures the integration of the different approaches so that the patient will be in the center. The objective is the management of the patient’s health instead of the management of the illness.

            To measure the subject’s level in each one of the 32 intelligences a questionnaire was constructed. The purpose of the measurement is to identify the strong abilities and reinforce them, to identify the weak abilities that constitute a threat and risk and correct and improve them. At the end of the process, the task is to identify the sources of imbalance so as to eliminate them. The map of intelligences will indicate a hierarchy of abilities in all areas of life.

            After the preparation of the questionnaire, many dozens of students, who sought to be accepted to studies, have been examined. In addition, strong and less strong intelligences were diagnosed in patients. On the basis of these assessment treatments have been carried out with great success.

 

1. Introduction

Integrative medicine is not the simple parallel of complementary medicine. While complementary medicine addresses the collection of diagnostic and treatment approaches that cannot be learned in medical schools, integrative medicine has broader meaning and a long-term objective. It focuses on a perception of health and healing as opposed to a perception that is focused on the illness. It sees the patient as a whole person who is comprised both of spirituality and soul and incorporates these aspects in the diagnosis and treatment (Rice and Wale, 2001)[1]. In addition, this approach necessitates the patient and the physician to be simultaneously involved in the preservation of health through the direction of attention to elements of lifestyle such as nutrition, physical activity, rest, sleep, life values, and the nature of the systems of relations. Lousky medicine is medicine with considerable value in the treatment of the patient; therefore, it must be integrated in the framework of the medicine of the future – integrated medicine – an integration that will include not only complementary approaches as a way of treatment but also will constitute an essential change of the perception of health and lifestyle.

In the holistic approach, there is a transition between the different dimensions, so that every treatment in one dimension influences and addresses other dimensions as well (in a space of time). However, the therapist needs to treat the painful dimension (the result) directly and immediately and only in the next stage, or in parallel, to address the seed (the cause) of the mishap, which originates in other dimensions. In this way, the patient will receive holistic (whole) treatment. Thus, every treatment method, in actuality, provides an immediate and direct response only to a part of the whole and does not treat the person. Hence, there is great importance in the definition of the treatment ‘basket’ that includes different treatment methods according to the different dimensions for integrated medicine.

The transition between the different dimensions, or in other words, all that occurs in one dimension will be expressed in other dimensions. Treatment in one dimension is like treatment in the other dimensions. The life values that originate in the intellectual dimension will be expressed as illness in the emotional dimension and then in the physical dimension.

(From this point onwards, when the concept of intelligences appears the intention is life values and the reverse is also true.)

There is a relationship between life values, which appear in the intellectual dimension of the intelligences, and illnesses and mishaps, which appear in the physical dimension of the intelligences, as well as a relationship between the intellectual dimension and the physical dimension. This relationship enables treatment of the physical dimension for the purpose of the acquisition of the ability to change life values. Self-education for change of life values increases the ability to cope with illnesses and mishaps, prevents relapse, and averts illness. Self-education for life values of the 32 intelligences contributes to the abilities to prevent illnesses and mishaps.

2. The Research Objectives

            The research presents an innovative approach to integrated medicine based on a unique framework through the 32 intelligences according to the Book of Creation. The research includes the definition of the 32 intelligences and the construction of a questionnaire for the evaluation of the intelligences.

            A high percentage of patients turn to complementary medicine, which offers hundreds of treatment methods that are not organized and arranged by law. Many therapists and physicians define themselves as treating with integrated medicine. Some medical centers opened wards and use the term ‘integrated medicine’. Integrated medicine is forming and is becoming fait accompli as an educational instrument for the maintenance of the health of both body and mind, for the prevention of illnesses, for self-healing, and for better coping with illnesses. In actuality, there is no format or framework for integrated medicine.

            Medical centers and therapists act in integrated medicine with a ‘basket’ of treatments acquired according to their personal tendency or according to the supply in the market and not according to a format that is related to the patient’s situation or to a holistic approach.

            The educational system educates for many values. However, till now, no research study has collected or defined in an organized manner life values and paths and a way of life, to which it is possible to add values as a result of the changes in the approach and perceptions, so that all the extant life values and those that have not yet been added will be included in the framework of a uniform format. The present research study seeks to makes its contribution in these topics as expressed in the research objectives. The primary research objectives:

  1. To create a format and framework for integrated medicine.
  2. To define the 32 intelligences, according to the Book of Creation.
  3. To construct a questionnaire for the measurement of the 32 intelligences and to examine it empirically.

 

3. Methodology

3.1 The Research Questions

  1. What are the main characteristics required for the creation of a format and framework for integrated medicine through the 32 intelligences for medical centers and for therapists, according to the Book of Creation?
  2. What are the 32 intelligences?
  3. What are the values of life that can be measured and through which it is possible to evaluate the intelligences?

3.2 The Research Method

The research study combines the phenomenological method and the hermeneutic method. These research methods were chosen because of the broad personal expression they grant the researcher. The broad expression of the researcher will enable the crystallization of a unique research method that is necessitated by the investigation of the topic, which has not yet been researched, and by the complexity and nature of the topic (which obligate personal observation) of the research before us. The research will be based on the interpretative phenomenological approach founded by Schutz (1971), according to which actions and symbols are always interpreted through the unique situation in which the person finds himself in the world at any given moment of his existence.

            The qualitative phenomenological research method relies on the assumption that with the help of qualitative instruments the researcher can attain, in a more in-depth and profound manner, the center of human being, through the processing and analysis of the findings in their overall context (Miles and Huberman, 1984; Smith, 1979). According to the phenomenological approach, there is no one truth or objective reality but rather a multiplicity of realities dictated by the participants. The fundamental assumption is that the perception of reality is subject and depends on the beholder. The phenomenological research aspires to identify, describe, and understand these experiences. This approach emphasizes the advantage in the understanding and subjective interpretation of social phenomena and enables in-depth understanding of the individual’s meanings and experiences, as he perceives them.

            The interpretative qualitative method  (hermeneutics) is based on the analysis of written sources. Hermeneutics is a theory or philosophy of giving meaning to things by interpreting them (Bleicher, 1980). In the present research study I chose philosophical hermeneutics that includes the theories of Heidegger, Gademar, and Taylor, according to which it is possible to find in the text different meaning depending on the interpreter. Gademar maintains that “every understanding is interpretation” (Levy, 1986). The researcher’s early assumptions influence his reference to the text and thus, in essence, allow him to judge the text and find in it new and original things.

            To conclude, the methodology of phenomenology is characterized by a research approach that aspires to lack preliminary assumptions. This methodology aspires from the start to avoid a research process, research techniques, and concepts that will direct the investigation. Phenomenology and hermeneutics have certain ways of investigation but the way is not predetermined through milestones; rather it is necessary to discover the way or invent it according to the researched question. This approach is commensurate with the approach of the Book of Creation, which presents a method and destroys it, so as to develop a new method and thus, in essence, directs to the fact that in the end there is no method. The primary research aspect in my research is expressed in original interpretation of the five characteristics of integrated medicine according to the Book of Creation for the purpose of the creation of a unique and simple format for integrated medicine. Thus, the definition of the life values of the 32 intelligences.

            It is emphasized that the phenomenological approach is the ‘glasses’ through which I analyze, research, and formulate the implementation of the 32 intelligences, as I understand them, on myself and on others. The hermeneutic approach addresses the interpretation of the Book of Creation and the possibility of bringing the explanation to practical implementation.

 

4. Health in the Mirror of the Intelligences

4.1 Holistic Health

A critical presentation of scientific health alongside the holistic approach and the description of the relationship between body and mind in the holistic approach are the rationale for the encounter between scientific medicine and lousky medicine, for the purpose of creating integrated medicine.

According to the Hebrew Encyclopedia (1961), the origin of the word ‘holism’ is Greek and the meaning of the word is ‘whole’. Holism perceives the entirety as a basic factor in the structure of the world. Holism sees the objects in nature, animate and inanimate, as a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The whole is the primary and unique reality. An encounter of different elements at a defined time and space creates a unique outcome: the discovery of new traits that cannot be expected beforehand on the basis of an analysis of every part of reality separately. Holistic health is a way of life and a perception of the world that sees the person to be in the center.

To understand the special role of holistic health, it is necessary to compare it to scientific medicine. Ben Dov (2005), a scientist and researcher who addresses the questions of body and mind, maintains, “When we speak of healing, we must address the whole person and not only his discrete components. This is the fundamental difference between the method of scientific medicine and the methods of alternative medicine”. According to Ben Dov, scientific medicine is based on the assumption that it is possible to address separate phenomena in the human system. Indeed, the method of scientific medicine divides the person into systems, each of which is a subject of distinct medical specialization. An ophthalmologist, for example, does not specialize in cardiologic problems; nor does the cardiologist specialize in the eye. Therefore, if we go to a physician with an illness that impairs a system found in his field of specialization then he can propose an adequate solution. However, if, as happens, we go to a scientific physician with an illness that impairs systems affiliated with other areas of specialization, then we must go to other expert physicians, each of whom can say different things and sometimes can prescribe medicines – statements and medicines that may conflict with what a different expert said and prescribed.

This difference can be understood if we observe the role that the whole human body fills in healing. In the method of scientific medicine, the body has no role and it even appears as an impeding factor. For instance, the primary actions of the operating physician are cutting the body tissues to reach the damaged part and therefore the fact that this part is within the living body is perceived as a problem and not as an advantage. Similarly, the side effects of medicines appear because of the complicated reciprocal relations between the different systems in the body and the ideal situation for the medication’s action is in the ‘test tube’, when the cells upon which it acts are isolated from their environment. In contrast, lousky medicine sees the whole person and is based on natural healing processes, with the goal of strengthening the four dimensions (physical, emotional, intellective, and spiritual), so as to allow it to cope with the illness with greater success.

From the perspective of body – mind, “when we go to a physician, we do not leave the emotions or thoughts outside of the treatment room. The mental aspects of the illness constitute an important part both in the development of the illness and in the healing process” (Ben Dov, 2005). The principled difference between the scientist and the physician is the commitment to ‘scientific truth’, or in other words, the truth that the investigation methods of science can discover. The physician is committed to healing and will prefer a situation in which the patient will be cured by the ‘wrong’ reasons over the situation in which he dies from the ‘right’ reasons.

4.2 Integrated Medicine

            The way in which the treatments were chosen for integrated medicine, in many cases, derives from considerations of convenience or ‘supply and demand’ and not from treatment rationale. Integrated medicine means the integration of different treatment methods (holistic and scientific) in the treatment ‘basket’ so as to provide a solution for the helping of body-mind in four dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical[2].

            Over human history, many researchers have presented an attitude on integrated medicine but never has this subject been a focus of attention in practice as in contemporary times.

            The Book of Creation[3], which is ascribed to the Patriarch Abraham, was the first to instruct in the integrated approach. The relationship between numbers and letters (male and female) and the creation of the four dimensions – spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical, senses, inner forces, outside impacts, and the relations between the desire to give and the desire to receive, relations between the body limbs and the seasons of the year, the zodiac, the stars, measurements, human traits and intelligences – everything is related, everything is one (Lousky, 2005). This can be seen as the determination of basic rules for integrated medicine.

            Reference to health in a holistic approach is also found in Socrates, who warned two thousand four hundred years ago that a part cannot be healthy unless the whole is healthy. Jan Sumitz in 1926 proposed to see life as an entity that is greater than and different from the sum of its parts. According to him, when things are limited to a certain perspective, some are lost. Even if it is possible to examine every part separately, the perspective of the whole, which is above everything, will still be absent.

            The model of the four dimensions, which describes the whole person (physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual) appears in Eastern doctrines – Buddhism of Buddha (the eight paths, 2500 BC) and Taoism of Confucius (Cong Fu Ze, 551-479 BC) (Pearle, 2000)[4]. The pattern model for the description of the whole is an inseparable part of the holistic methods of treatment. The four dimensions for the description of the whole are found in Jewish medicine and in Western philosophy. Complementary medicine, which is also called holistic (whole) medicine, has a number of treatment methods at the basis of which are two essential principles:

  1. The person is one whole entity in which there are dynamic reciprocal relations between body and mind in four dimensions – physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
  2. Every person has inner healing powers that can be intensified and directed to perform the healing work.

An illness is linked to the disruption of the delicate balance that exists between body and mind. Therefore, the first aspiration in the healing process is to reach the point of equilibrium to allow the inner healing powers in every person a good platform and appropriate conditions to act. The aspiration to harmony and balance exists not only in times of illness but is essential even more to maintain the health and avert the development of illnesses. The body mind relationship and reciprocal relations between them have been scientifically proved (Shechter, 2004)[5]. The scientific field of research that engages in these relations is called psycho-neuro-immunology (psycho – brain, neuro – neurons or nervous system, immuno – the activity of the immune system, logy – science). Many researches have proved that there is a relationship between science that examines the mind and the immune systems and that there is a relationship between stress and the activity of every system in the body. According to Shechter (2004), there is scientific proof that stress harms the heart’s activity, increases the risk of getting sick, and impairs the chances of recovery. Other researches found that it is possible to improve the activity of the immune system through simple means such as physical activity, correct sleeping and eating habits, optimism, and even laughter. Researches that examined the relationship between optimistic thinking and recuperation from severe illnesses, such as heart disease, brain strokes, and cancer found that there is a direct relationship between a positive approach and believe in the ability to recuperate and the recovery itself. Shechter (2004) maintains that people who believed that they would recover or whose mental situation was better coped better with illness and their chances of recovery were greater. Hence, these are not conflicting approaches – it is definitely possible to phrase a good formula that combines between scientific medicine and lousky medicine.

4.3 Integrated Medicine in Israel

Integrative medicine in Israel is not the simple parallel of complementary medicine. While complementary medicine addresses the collection of diagnostic and treatment approaches that are not learned in the schools of medicine, integrative medicine has broader meaning and a long-term objective. It focuses on the perception of health and healing versus a perception focused on the illness. It sees the patient as a whole person comprised of both mind and spirituality and incorporates these aspects in the assessment and treatment (Rice and Wale, 2001)[6]. In addition, this approach necessitates the patient and the physician to be simultaneously involved in the preservation of the health through the direction of attention to the elements of lifestyle such as nutrition, physical activity, rest, sleep, and the nature of systems of relations. Lousky medicine is medicine with considerable value in the treatment of the patient and therefore it must be combined in the framework of the medicine of the future – integrated medicine. This integration not only will include complementary approaches as a way of treatment but also will constitute an essential change of the perception of health and lifestyle.

Patients have begun to promote integrative medicine on their own. From a perceptual perspective, Israel is one of the actual leaders in this field and has gone far: in 1991 a clinic was opened in Israel, the first for integrated medicine in the University medical center of Assaf HaRofeh. This process was at that time a focus of opposition on the part of the medical establishment. At the end of the decade, in Israel the number of hospitals that incorporated lousky medicine had increased to ten. In parallel, the medical clinics opened to this idea and began to provide holistic medical services to their clients in the framework of complementary coverage. In Israel a most diverse variety of services in the field of holistic/integrated medicine has been offered in comparison to other Western countries (Rice and Wale, 2001). In Israel, the level of integration in the different systems is such that there is integration between complementary approaches and conventional medicine as well as integration among the complementary approaches themselves. In this field, Israel is a pioneer (Rice and Wale, 2001).

4.4 Health Management as opposed to Illness Management

            Integrated medicine incorporates different treatment methods and approaches. The integration of scientific methods and holistic approaches and the integration among the different holistic approaches are undertaken with the goal of creating an integrative range of treatments that address the person as one whole entity. Integrated medicine addresses the physical dimension, through medications and operations and through holistic physical treatment methods such as acupuncture, massage, and motion; the emotional dimension through treatments such as integration of the arts, the intellectual dimension through treatments such as guided imagery, and the spiritual dimension through treatments such meditation. In actuality, most of the medical centers do not create this integration. When the medical centers go to choose the treatment ‘basket’, they tend to choose physical treatment methods such as massage, nutrition, homeopathy, reflexology, and movement. In many cases, they ignore the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual methods of treatment.

            When I visited the Assaf HaRofeh medical center in Israel, I found the Department of Complementary Medicine Treatment to which patients from other departments are referred. An integrative relationship between scientific medicine and lousky medicine was not found and a structured integrated approach for the treatment techniques of complementary medicine was also not found. The Assaf HaRofeh medical center as a medical center adopted techniques of complementary medicine in a separate division. It charges full payment from the patients for the service, which makes it very difficult for the population at large to receive complementary medical service.

            In my search for a medical center that combines between the approaches, I heard that the Global Hospital Medical Center is the most advanced in the world in the integrated approach. I traveled to the medical center, found in Mt. Abu, in South Rajasthan in India. I was there for a month as a guest of the medical center. I conducted lengthy conversations during my visits to all the departments of the medical center, I went to villages with medical staff to find patients and assess them. I was present in a number of operations, participated in many conventions and lectures, and I gave a number of lectures to the medical staff on the format of integrated medicine. Global Hospital has an entire floor of complementary treatment techniques and the services are provided free of charge. The work the medical center in Mt. Abu conducts is unique and apparently there is nothing similar in the world. In every floor on the medical center there are active meditation rooms, there are courses on correct nutrition, courses on life values, the provided food is nutrition, music is played, and throughout the medical center there are placards calling for a ‘look inside’. The integrated medicine of Mt. Abu has no structured rationale or orderly format for integrated medicine. Here too the budgets are the factor that determines what the treatment is. The collection of techniques here is link to the ability to recruit therapists and equipment, regardless of the work format or rationale. Another difficulty lies in the fact that the patients do not know which techniques to use and in the operating room there is no holistic therapist who can propose integrative service. Here too there still is reference to the illness as opposed to the patient. 

            The problem of the lack of integration is not exclusive to the medical centers. Holistic health also defines itself and acts according to a pattern that combines four dimensions of treatment of the whole. It provides only partial and not a complete solution for the integration between the different methods and approaches. The holistic therapist notes and lists the treatment methods that he addresses. He declares, “I use Shiatsu, reflexology, and nutrition”. Another therapist states, “I use healing and medicinal plants”. The holistic therapist does not learn or choose his methods of treatment out of the need to create integration between the four dimensions. He trains himself according to his inclinations or according to supply and demand in the market of lousky medicine. In spite of the holistic therapists’ declared desire to treat the whole person (four dimensions) in actuality, there is no integrative implementation that addresses the four dimensions and accordingly the patient is not accorded holistic treatment.

            Contact therapies do not address the intellectual or spiritual dimension and meditation does not provide a solution to problems of nutrition or movement. A person skilled in meditation can possibly achieve such a level of meditation that also resolves his issues of movement and nutrition; but this is only possible – perhaps – after years of training that are not necessarily at the disposal of every patient. This main issue – of the importance of providing a precise and integrative range of treatments – can be concretized in the following example. It is similar to a person who has broken his leg (physical dimension) and after consultation the therapists reach the conclusion that the fracture was caused as a result of a difficult dyadic system of relations that induces the patient’s lack of attention and this contributed to his lack of awareness, to his stumbling, and to the leg fracture. Then the therapists decide to first treat the dyadic system of relations (emotional dimension) before they put the broken leg into a cast. This is not correct – and similarly, it is not correct to treat through nutrition (physical dimension) the situation of the loss of a workplace or the loss of a loved one (emotional dimension). The division to dimensions was intended to address the damaged dimension directly and immediately through the treatment method that is suited to the harmed dimension.

            In the holistic approach, there is a transition between the different dimensions, so that every treatment of one dimension influences and treats the other dimensions (over time). However, the therapist needs to address the hurting dimension (the result) directly and immediately and only in the next stage, or in parallel, to address the seed (the cause) of the mishap, which originates in other dimensions. In this way, the patient receives holistic treatment. Thus, every complementary treatment method in actuality provides an immediate and direct solution only to part of the whole and does not treat the person according to its declaration. Hence, there is considerable importance in the definition of a range of treatments that include different treatment method according to the different dimensions of integrated medicine.

            Holism is not only every approach in itself but also the integration among the approaches, which are shaped according to the patient’s needs. The holistic emphasis is systemic and not only in approach or in the atmosphere. Holistic health means that the patient is at the center – it is management of the patient’s health instead of management of his illness.

5. A Brief History of the Research of the Intelligences

The theory of intelligences explains how we create our understanding of the world where we live, how we change attitudes and beliefs, and how we determine objectives and accomplish them. The success of the process necessitates the implementation of all the dimensions in the individual’s personality – a holistic approach, or in essence, the implementation of many intelligences. Thus, the contribution of the research of intelligences to the understanding of the holistic approach, which is the heart of integrated medicine.

The French psychologist Binet addressed intelligence as an intellective ability that can be quantified into a numerical index, called IQ – Intelligence Quotient. Binet composed a tree of units of age-intelligence, assuming that intelligence changes with age. Therefore, the intelligence quotient is defined as the ratio between the individual’s personal ability and the ability of his peer group. The IQ test was first developed by Binet and Simon in 1916 and was intended to classify students for regular and special schools. On the basis of the test, these intelligence tests are still used in the Western world to classify students and predict their success in the studies. The IQ test measures the abilities required to succeed in the studies in the conventional school such as comprehension and verbal ability, logical mathematical ability, and recall of words and numbers. According to Binet and Simon, there are three criteria for the thinking action: thinking in a defined direction, adjustment ability using temporary solutions and ability to clarify, judge correctly, and critique every assumption or solution (Gardner, 1996).

The extensive use of intelligence tests over the years has awakened criticism, which addressed the question of whether intelligence is one ability, which can be measured quantitatively, or whether it constitutes an entirety of abilities. The critics argue that the definition of intelligence is narrow, examining only logical-mathematical and verbal abilities. This approach is the antithesis of the holistic approach, since it addresses only one part of the intellective dimension and does not see the whole person (the four dimensions).

In 1710 Jambista Vicko maintained that the Divine truth is what God learns in the process of its creation and combination. Human truth, too, is what the person learns when he builds it and shapes it according to his deeds. Therefore, science (scientia) is the knowledge (cognito) of the sources, of the ways, and of the manner in which things are created. According to Viko, the only way to know something is to create it, and only then it is possible to know all the elements that were combined together in it. Viko used the word ‘operation’; hence, knowledge according to Viko is awareness of the actions that create the world of activity and the world of activity is a product that builds the intelligence.

Piaget (1977) maintains that the implementation of a cognitive entity is what organizes the world of experience through the organization itself. Weschler (1944) holds that intelligence is an ability, which is evinced through challenges that are placed before the individual and according to resources at his disposal. Thorndyke (1921) maintains that intelligence is the ability to respond with the right answers.

Goleman (1995) posited ‘emotional intelligence’ to meet the need to find a different index for the quantification of a person’s ability and to understand his behavior or the course of his life. Emotional intelligence takes two uncorrelated concepts, intelligence and emotion, and creates a new definition of the concept that better explains the social, organizational, and administrative situation in a world that is steadily becoming more complex.

Sternberg (1985) posited a theory of ‘Three Factors Intelligence’ that maintains that it is necessary to examine intelligence in three dimensions and in the relations among these dimensions.

  1. The person’s world of inner thinking, which includes elements of knowledge acquisition, knowledge processing, and meta-cognition elements that address planning and regulation of the elements of knowledge acquisition and organization.
  2. Thinking in contact with the person’s outside world that includes his abilities to adjust to the environment, change it, or exchange it for another environment.
  3. The person’s thinking and range of experience, in other words, his abilities to cope with new situations and transform the abilities that he developed during these coping into an automatic part of his repertoire of actions.

Sternberg (1997) in his book Successful Intelligence had what is considered the breakthrough of the last decade, when he constructed a new theory that defines human intelligence. His primary approach is based on the tripartite theory of intelligence, which is based on three elements: the analytic element, the creative element, and the practical element. According to Sternberg, successful intelligence is intelligence that can help the individual build himself in light of these three elements and a qualitative educational system needs to allow and encourage such construction. Sternberg’s approach to the examination of the nature of intelligence is primarily expressed in terms of the context in which it is held. He proposed a contextual framework for the understanding of intelligence. Most researches, from the 1970s and 1980s, engaged in intelligence in relation to the individual’s inner world. These researches provided means for the understanding of intelligence in terms of the processes and cognitive structures that contribute to it, but they did not contribute anything to the relationship between intelligence and the individual’s outside world. If we perceive intelligence, at least in part, as adaptive behavior in an environment of the real world, according to Sternberg (1997), then it is not possible to completely understand the nature of intelligence without understanding how the real world shapes what is intelligent behavior in the given social and cultural context. 

5.1 The Multiple Intelligences Theory

The multiple intelligences theory of the psychologist and neurologist Gardner (1996) inspired a revolution in the perception of intelligence. He presented evidence that human intelligence is not one intellective index but a combination of intelligences. All the characteristics of intelligence have a distinct place in the mind and the unique mechanisms of information processing and expression influence human understanding of human ability to live and function in the world.

Gardner (1996) cast doubt on the validity of the measurement of the IQ and emphasized the diversity that characterizes human abilities. Thus, he extended the scope of vision of human potential to go beyond the bounds of the IQ. According to Gardner (1996), intelligence is the person’s ability to solve problems. Problem solving needs to lead to products that can be measured and evaluated. Gardner proposed to examine how people cope with different life situations when he emphasized the multidimensionality of human intelligence, which is expressed in many dimensions of the body mind system as an entirety of the ten intelligences or distinct human abilities. These intelligences are different from one another and can connect together in everyday functioning.

Gardner (1996) based his theory on the neuro-physiological aspect. An infant coming into the world has a complex and complicated system of nerves comprised of neurons. These neurons wait to be woven jointly and connected into an active constellation of thinking actions. The active relation among the neurons is what gives the system its traits, meaning, and design. The design of the system eventually determines who the individual is and what abilities he has. The lack of development of these abilities is the functional degeneration of part of the nervous system. The neuro-physiologist researches show that the main relations are conducted through experience, primarily in the stages of early childhood and elementary school (Gardner, 1996).

The dimensions of intelligence proposed by Gardner are: lingual intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, spatial intelligence, musical intelligence, movement intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, naturalistic intelligence, moral intelligence, and survival intelligence. Each one of these intelligences appears in every person, in some ‘dosage’, so that people can be intelligent in areas such as music, movement, interpersonal relations, and not necessarily in the lingual or logical-mathematical areas.

Every person has his own unique profile of intelligences, which shapes his personality, his perceptions, and his understanding of the world and his behaviors. This profile is fundamentally hereditary, and the tendency towards intelligences is evinced from an early age, but the continuation of a person’s development – or the delay in a person’s development – depends on environmental factors such as access to resources or experts who can provide assistance as well as on historical, cultural, geographic, family, or circumstantial factors. In light of the fact that intelligences have a neurobiological basis, a person’s constellation of intelligences changes constantly during his life.

Gardner (1996) maintains that it is possible to improve and develop every intelligence with the influence of the environment, through appropriate stimulation and training, and that the effectiveness of the intelligences increases as the level of motivation rises. Alternatively, the development of the intelligences is delayed given the lack of training and stimulation.

Human abilities also develop through the neurological connections and electric currents in the brain. The brain cells, like the intelligences, are physical entities that can be developed using different means and they respond like the muscles in the body respond to practice and training (Gardner, 1996). Through practice, it is possible to develop the nervous system and the neurological connections in the mind and in the entire body that are required for learning and for the optimal and balanced exploitation of the potential of the 32 intelligences.

5.2 The Book of Creation as a Source of the 32 Intelligences

The lively discussion of the nature of intelligence and the revolution that Sternberg and Gardner inspired in the perception of intellection allows the appearance of a format of 32 intelligences according to the Book of Creation, which seeks to play a part in the discussion of the definition of the human potential of intelligences. The human potential format according to the Book of Creation is the format of integrated medicine (Lousky, 2005).

The model of integrated medicine is based on the format that the Book of Creation instructs and the interpretation that is given to the format. Hence, I decided to devote this section to the presentation of the special place of the Book of Creation in philosophy and thought.

In his book The Doctrine of Creation of the Book of Creation, Y. Libs (a professor in the Department of Jewish Philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem) says, “The Book of Creation is a wonderful work, unique in its language, form, and content, concise, considered, and laconic, which appeared in the culture of Israel at an unknown time and place and re-shaped Jewish literature and philosophy. This is a book of instruction and teaching, content and expression, in regards to appropriate spiritual conduct.” The activity of God, which is seemingly the primary issue of the presented book, according to Libs, is a model of imitation and human activity. God is the light and man is the instrument (shadow), God does not have a beginning or an end while man is found with limitations of beginning and end. The instrument needs light to receive and the light needs the instrument to give; one is linked to the other, the one is formed through the other, to create the balance. God created the world through 32 paths of wonder and wisdom and therefore man must shape and build his world through 32 paths.

The Book of Creation is the source of the Tree of Life, the seed from which all the branches spouted and grew, from which all the perceptions, doctrines, religions developed. According to the ‘Holy ARI’*  (Berg, 1990), the Book of Creation is the book of instruction that the Creator gave to all that he created, through the Patriarch Abraham, 3800 years ago. The Book of Creation is about thirty pages long (six short chapters) and an extensive research literature, consisting of interpretations and explications, has been created around it. This literature is tremendously important in the shaping of Judaism, Kabalistic thought, and Jewish philosophy (Libs, 2000). Around the Book of Creation have been created many exemplary works such as the literature of the Kabala and the Zohar, researches in the field of cosmology and astronomy, the structure of the human body, the theory of language and grammar, mysticism, magic, etc.

The phrasing of the Book of Creation lives and develops with the growth of interpretative literature. This phenomenon, which is also known in other cases, is especially extreme in the case of the Book of Creation (Libs, 2000). The Kabala has not yielded interpretations of the Book of Creation, according to Libs (2000); rather, the interpretations of the Book of Creation have yielded the Kabala. In other words, the interpretation of the Book of Creation is the theory of the Kabala.

The Book of Creation, attributed to the Patriarch Abraham, opens with a dramatic declaration. “In thirty-two paths of wonderful wisdom God engraved …” In other words, the world was created in thirty-two intelligences: ten numbers and 22 basic letters. The paths of wisdom according to the Book of Creation are the manner of action and the way of action, both the place and the time, they are paths of wisdom and wisdom, they are the creator and the creation, they are the content and the framework (Libs, 2000). They are a way of life and they are intelligences. According to the Book of Creation, God created the world through 32 paths, and therefore mankind shapes and builds reality through 32 intelligences. It is difficult to describe something that can be processed in the mind or in other physical systems without letters and numbers, since the end depends on the thinking at the beginning, and the end involves numbers and letters first. The 32 intelligences are the entirety and wholeness, all that is in all its elements, the complete spectrum of the reality of the light. All the human formats and paths are built on letters, words, and numbers. Every action and creation are possible only through numbers and letters. Reality and the intelligences are two parts of the same essence – the creator and the creation (Lousky, 2005).

The values of life or the intelligences are the principle of multiplicity, the number of intelligences is the main theme of their essence, the number of letters in every group and the number of numbers are the infinite multiplicity: the numbers according to the decimal generative principle, the letters in their connections into words and their infinite combinations. However, the multiplicity exists only seemingly and is not nothing other than evidence of the one God. The world of the Book of Creation is dynamic and not predetermined; it is created in the eyes of the beholder and is destroyed by the beholder in an unending process. The beholder’s eyes are what imprint in the world the multiplicity and they negate its existence (Libs, 2000).

Intelligence (DNA) is the building block of the body. The body is built of more than fifty billion billion cells that live in the body in manners and quantities according to their place and role. In every cell there is genetic recall that passes from generation to generation. The tree of life is the genetic memory and the human potential. This is a molecule built of a twisted tree of three coils that create 32 intelligences in four dimensions. Every segment of the tree that creates the triple coil is called a path and it is a page in the book of the whole tree of life. The 32 intelligences are the pages that create the complete human genome. In every cell in the body there is a complete copy of the whole genome. All the human traits that create the structure of personality are coded in different combinations and mixes of the 32 intelligences. Mapping human behavior according to the intelligences allows approach to the need to assess and treat, practice and train, improve, maintain, and correct (Lousky, 2005).

“The thirty-two paths of wondrous wisdom” of the Book of Creation are the thirty-two intelligences. Every intelligence is divided into four dimensions (physical, emotional, intellective, and spiritual). Every intelligence includes an infinite number of possibilities (body limbs, colors, sounds, values, times, places, human traits, stones, etc.) that are related to the frequency of the intelligence. The life values are one of the expressions of the intellective level of the thirty-two intelligences.

For every person, every human behavior, every process, and every human actions a graduated profile of actions of the thirty-two intelligences can simply be defined. Every person has a unique profile. Some people have stronger intellective intelligence and will prefer activity in subjects such as accounting and business administration, while others have stronger emotional intelligence and will prefer to engage in social work or education. Those whose spiritual intelligence is stronger will prefer to work in charity organizations or in the role of spiritual teachers while those whose physical intelligence is stronger will engage in agricultural occupations or in sports. Of course, there are combinations of the types of intelligences that enable combined professions and occupations.

Every person has a unique profile of intelligences that shapes his personality and he ‘builds’ his personality, although every person can stimulate, train, and practice intelligences to shape his personality by his own free will (Gardner, 1996). The combinations that every person has are unique and faithfully express his unique personality ‘structure’ and the resultant personal mission. The unique profile of every person makes him singular, special, and unique and places him at the center of the universe and the center of the existence. Every person has thirty-two intelligences at unique dosages and degrees. Every person’s personal profile constitutes the unique language with which he functions and excels (Lousky, 2005). The understanding that every person has a unique profile of intelligences requires change of the treatment approach, from a situation in which the illness is managed to the management of the patient’s health. Management of the patient’s health is a holistic approach that enables implementation of the format of combined medicine.

The Thirty-Two Intelligences according to the Book of Creation

The five characteristics of integrated medicine are the result of the ‘healthy structure of the Book of Creation’. According to the Book of Creation, life and the universe, what exists and what does not, are one whole – the thirty-two paths of wondrous wisdom are the thirty-two intelligences (Lousky, 2005).

The Book of Creation counts the thirty-two paths in the following way: the whole divides into two – 10 numbers and 22 letters. These two parts represent male and female, the desire to give and the desire to receive (the motive of change). The numbers represent the emotional dimension. The letters (dividing into three) represent the spiritual, intellectual, and physical dimensions. Thus, the four dimensions of the whole (ladder of health) are created.

Each one of the dimensions includes a number of intelligences (three in the spiritual, seven in the intellectual, ten in the emotional, twelve in the physical) for a total of thirty-two intelligences. Every intelligence is like a drawer that contains all that is suited to its frequency: character traits, emotions, body limbs, simple human actions, colors, sounds, etc. (holistic medications).

Each one of the intelligences is a unit that stands alone: it is one of the thirty-two foundation stones of the entire structure. Every intelligence is a microcosm of the whole (every intelligence includes all thirty-two intelligences). Every intelligence, like the whole, divides into male and female, the desire to receive and the desire to give (motive of change). In each one of the intelligences, there are four dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical (scale of health).

The Numbers – The Non-Existent

There are ten numbers of stopping (emotional dimension): The numbers of stopping or nothingness* symbolize the lack, the ‘nothing-ness’, and describe the feminine passivity and the inner forces (Lousky, 2005).

The Letters – The Existent

There are 22 letters that divide into three dimensions (spiritual, intellectual, and physical). The 22 fundamental letters symbolize the active side, initiative and creation, and the materials with which we build the world and what exists.

6. The Format of the 32 Intelligences

            According to the Book of Creation, the 22 letters and 10 numbers (the 32 paths) are the laws according to which the world was created. Every letter and every number represents a human intelligence. The 32 human abilities are the human potential (Lousky, 2005). The human abilities are also ‘lousky medicines’ for internal change, for the increase and decrease in the health ladder, for the purpose of healing, preserving balance, and preventing mishaps and illnesses. The practice and training of the intelligences are the center of activity in integrated medicine.

            The three intelligences in the spiritual dimension express the ability to define desire and its direction.

  • The Hebrew letter aleph, א, created free will – the ability to discern that the world is an empty void that is filled with free will.
  • The Hebrew letter mem, מ, created the desire to give – the ability to define the desire to give as a lofty goal and purpose of life.
  •  The Hebrew letter shin, ש, created the desire to receive – the ability to define the degree and the direction of the desire to receive.

The seven intelligences in the intellectual dimension define the ability to effect a change in approaches and beliefs:

  • The Hebrew letter beyt, ב, created wisdom – the ability to synchronize action – where, when, with whom, how much, how, and the combination between them.
  • The Hebrew letter gimmel, ג, created richness – the ability to understand that much or little does not influence your joy.
  • The Hebrew letter daled, ד, created seed – the ability to have a motive and correct direction, like a seed from which the result grows.
  • The Hebrew letter cahf, כ, created life – the ability to effect an inner change. To be in motion and to convey onwards.
  • The Hebrew letter pay, פ, created self-governance – the ability to free the self from arrogance, over-righteousness, and conceit.
  • The Hebrew letter reysh, ר, created peace – the ability to include you and others to create the whole and perfection.
  • The Hebrew letter tahf, ת, created charm – the ability to bring the occurrences to self-awareness and self-discovery.

The ten intelligences in the emotional dimension defined the ability to identify and assess lacks:

  • The number 1 created the power of light – the ability to be certain that everything comes from the side of the light, everything is light.
  • The number 2 created the power of the beginning – the ability to begin everything at the start in any place, at any age, and at any time.
  • The number 3 created the power of love – the ability to do things from love as a medicine of all the medicines.
  • The number 4 created the power of freedom – the ability to be or not to be at any place where you are found.
  • The number 5 created the power of thinking – the ability to create through thinking, belief, and new reality.
  • The number 6 created the power of unity – the ability to strengthen the difference to create unity and harmony,
  • The number 7 created the power of observation – the ability to know yourself through others and through your experiences.
  • The number 8 created the power of healing – the ability to discern that as you learn more, you understand less.
  • The number 9 created the power of immunity – the ability to learn how to learn and to find the required knowledge in the required time.
  • The number 10 created the power of discovery – the ability to accept reality and address the causes for the purpose of changing the result.

The twelve intelligences in the physical dimension express the ability to define and realize objectives.

  • The Hebrew letter hay, ה, created the sense of sight – the ability to see things visually, spatially, supra-sensory, using the imagination, multidisciplinary. 
  • The Hebrew letter vahv, ו, created the sense of hearing – the ability to hear sounds, tones, frequencies, to process them, to have discipline and give meaning.
  • The Hebrew letter zahyin, ז, created the sense of smell – the ability to smell truth or lie and the ability to act from the personal truth.
  • The Hebrew letter chet, ח, created the sense of speech – the ability to speak, to write, to share, to lecture, to distinguish between right and wrong.
  • The Hebrew letter tet, ט, created the sense of taste – the ability to differentiate between good and evil and the ability to act for the good.
  • The Hebrew letter yood, י, created the sense of deed – the ability to take the initiate and do and the ability to distinguish between what is permitted and what is prohibited.
  • The Hebrew letter lamed, ל, created the sense of touch – the ability to discover through contact, body, nature, dance, movement, arts, drawing. 
  • The Hebrew letter nuhn, נ, created the sense of way – the ability to make a process into an objective, for the solving of complex survival problems.
  • The Hebrew letter samech, ס, created the sense of the gut – the ability to practice internalization and personal training, the ability to act out of belief.
  • The Hebrew letter ahyin, ע, created the sense of the mind – the ability to play, logic, classification, processing, analysis, question, conscious investigation.
  • The Hebrew letter zadik, צ, created the sense of the heart – the ability to connection, compassion, commitment, acceptance, integration and management of others.
  • The Hebrew letter koof, ק, created the sense of the cell – the ability to cope with moral and value-oriented dilemmas, human dignity and freedom.

The 32 intelligences are human potential. Every person has a unique profile of intelligences through which he can determine objectives and excel in them. Human potential, namely, all the person’s abilities, everything is found between aleph א (the beginning, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet) and tahf ת (the end, the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet), from 1 to 10. All the letters with the addition of the numbers represent the abilities and human potential.

6.1 The Connection of the Hebrew Language to the Intelligences

The 22 Hebrew letters were chosen to represent 22 of the 32 intelligences (10 of the numbers represent the emotional dimension, suitable for all languages). The 26 English language letters, the 27 Roman letters, 28 Arabic letters, or the 24 Greek letters were not chosen. The researchers know the reasons:

  1. The Hebrew language was the language that the Patriarch Abraham spoke.
  2. The Hebrew language, according to certain researches, is the most ancient language.
  3. The letters of the Hebrew language represent contents.

Languages are created on the basis of agreement among people. Languages are generally a collection of agreed-upon signs for the purpose of interpersonal communication. Words in all languages are labels or signs that describe abstract ideas. The reason that words represent any contents is related to local history, philosophy, or economic social perception. In actuality, there is no logical relationship between the word and its content or meaning. From this perspective, the Hebrew language is different and special. Every letter in the Hebrew language has defined and regular spiritual meaning that is represented by reality. Every letter is an intelligence that enables the improvement of the innate ability among people. The meaning of the Hebrew word is the combination of the meanings of the letters that construct it. The letter describes the concealed trait, the nature of the intelligence and its meaning. The numerical value of every letter and its place in the word, the form of the letter, and the emphasis and tune derive from the letters’ meaning. The letters are built from the body of the letter, the tags or emphases, the vowels (in other words, the punctuation marks (in other words, the movement and direction of the letters) and the tastes (in other words, their music). A word is a combination of meaning of the letters that built it to describe reality.

  1. It is possible to create other formats for the description of life, the formats can have 24, 26, 27, or 28 letters. According to the Book of Creation, everything is correct, every format is possible to describe reality. This research uses the format proposed by the Book of Life: a format of 22 letters and 10numbers, which are the 32 intelligences and ways of life.

6.2 Self-Image and the Intelligences

          People who work in a place of work only because of the need to earn their livelihood, without joy of life and without interest, eventually will develop illnesses so that they can avoid the frustrating work. Society can and should evaluate abilities according to the profile of personal intelligences and thus it can create openness and acceptance of many diverse occupations such as poetry, dance, acting, sport, healing, carpentry, machinery, etc. In this way, it is possible to allow many people who do not want to be engineers, lawyers, or physicians to feel worthy and wanted in society and to allow them to excel in the area in which they can best express themselves. This issue is a main aspect in integrated medicine and seeks to address the prevention of illnesses and mishaps through the reinforcement of the self-image.

            Every intelligence is related to an environmental aspect and therefore it is necessary to examine it in an aspect familiar and suitable to a person and to provide optimal environmental conditions, which extend the expression ability of the intelligence.

            The role of the therapist is to identify the person’s abilities, to help him reach an area that suits his abilities, an area that allows him effectiveness and competition ability, satisfaction, and reinforcement of the intelligences in which he excels. This will contribute to the promotion of his self-image and to the realization of his personal potential (Walizer, 1999).

            Despite the differences among people and the infinite variety of the ‘profile of the intelligences’, evaluation is still performed using uniform  ‘conventional’ tests. In this strange situation, the abilities that primarily are based on two intelligences – lingual intelligence and logical-mathematical intelligence – are emphasized. The meaning is that people who excel in these two intelligences are considered strong and successful, while others are considered to have difficulties, to be weak, and to fail to meet requirements. They just have a low self-image and are caught in a frustrating cycle of mediocrity or failure.

            The therapist’s role is to allow every person a stage and window for opportunities to express the diverse texture that characterizes intelligences, which sometimes are latent and are not expressed. As the therapy is more diverse in terms of the activities and learning materials, the more it will be possible to discover interest and motivation, to express the self in the context of the remedial activity, in diverse ways suited to the personal profile of intelligences. Beyond the experience of such learning, the therapist will be allowed to ascertain reliability and validity, on the basis of the patients’ performance, if indeed they understand what is learned and can intelligently use the knowledge they have acquired. The therapist can assess abilities, tendencies, strong points, and fields of interest, alongside points that require improvement and mistaken perceptions. In light of this assessment, the therapist can design the continuation of the treatment so that he will encourage patients to emphasize their strong abilities and fields of interest. From this positive perspective, it is important that the therapist will be helped by strong points as an impetus for the promotion of other abilities, which are not sufficiently developed and should be improved or so that mistaken perceptions will be uprooted (Walizer, 1999).

            If we adopt this ‘educational’ approach in integrated medicine, it is possible to create optimal conditions that inspire motivation and that encourage the patients’ growth and the realization of their innate potential. This treatment approach, which enables the patient to present himself in diverse ways that suit his personality, his inclinations, and his abilities, according to his choice, may instill a sense of efficacy and belief in his ability. Thus, we will cause the increase of their security and self-image. All these will lead to motivation and openness to personal learning, which will help them leave the circle of failure or mediocrity in which they are caught.

            The educational process is a process of self-healing (Lousky, 2005). Exposure, stimulation, practice, and training of intelligences will help the development of the effectiveness of the intelligences (Gardner, 1996), for the purpose of self-healing as well.

            When a person does not excel in the intelligence of speech (and therefore has difficulties phrasing verbal responses), but is talented in intelligences of touch, it is possible to encourage him to evince the knowledge he has acquired through drawing, sculpting, construction of a model or presentation, in a process or action of his choice.

            A patient who has received the recognition and esteem of the uniqueness of his developed intelligences will display greater interest in further learning and improvement in his less well developed areas (Walizer, 1999).

7. Interpretation of the Intelligences of the Book of Creation

The source of the 32 intelligences is the Book of Creation. The interpretation of the Book of Creation, as it appears in this research, of each one of the values are seven books that I wrote. I decided to tell about the way in which the books were written to illuminate a little the considerable work that has been conducted to collect material, classify it, investigate it, and present the final result, as it appears in the books cited in the present research.

The research of the intelligences and life values according to the Book of Creation was accompanied by considerable and comprehensive work, over the course of fifteen years before this research was conducted. It would seem that there is ‘no relationship’ to this research. My familiarity with the Book of Creation was not coincidental and was timed precisely to the time when I am ready and prepared. I heard about the book in one of the Kabala lessons in which I participated. From that day, I have been restless. I have read the book dozens of times, I have been in love with what I found, and from that day I have learned everything through the book. Since then, I have spent many days and nights on the meanings and values of the book and its author, the Patriarch Abraham. I have researched the Book of Creation, from what is written inside and from what interpreters of the Book of Creation have said and written on it. Over the years, I have collected considerable information from the writings of researchers, scientists, and rabbis who addressed the uniqueness of the Book of Creation and who interpreted it. 

Every crumb of information that I found was examined and compared to what I saw in the Book of Creation and to the interpretation I gave. The interpretations I found of the Book of Creation were supported by conclusions of other researchers and rabbis. In many cases, first I saw and interpreted the text in my own manner and then I searched for confirmation and support in the writings of other researchers. This way allowed me freedom of inquiry in my unique interpretation of the Book of Creation. Thus, I arrived at the format of the 32 intelligences and integrated medicine.

            Over the years, I have researched the meaning of the intelligences and the life values for the purpose of the change of reality with thousands of participants, in workshops and courses for self-awareness that I have conducted throughout Israel. I taught about the intelligences and the life values for the change of reality in courses and lectures in Haifa, in the Krayot, in Tiberias, in Safed, in Rishon LeZion, in Tel Aviv, and in Jerusalem. Some of the courses consisted of eighteen meetings of four hours each meeting and in recent years, I have taught intelligences and life values in the framework of a four-year program for training therapists. The participants in the workshops consisted of people who sought to understand the nature of life and human mind, and of people who came to learn the treatment profession. Some were professionals, physicians, nurses, and nursing staff, who wanted to learn and implement the values of integrated medicine in the medical centers.

            Examination of my interpretation of the thirty-two intelligences of the Book of Creation was supported by four primary sources:

  1. Interpretations of rabbis and researchers on the Book of Creation.
  2. Scientific works and researches in the field of the definition of the intelligences – Binet, Gardner, and others.
  3. My work in the field with thousands of participants in courses and workshops.
  4. Work with patients and subjects, through which I could assess the differences between the different values and define their meaning in unique ways.

My work to give an orderly and structured interpretation of the intelligences according to the Book of Creation led me to write seven books. Every book discussed a group of intelligences according to the Book of Creation.

The first book was: Nine Cosmic Forces for Success. The book discusses the ten emotional intelligences. The entire book was communicated through writing (most of the writing was in front of a computer). The writing began with a sketch of nine forces in the shape of a circle with the writing of the names of all nine intelligences according to the order inside the circle and their interpretation. The center of the circle is the tenth intelligence, which symbolizes the reality that is created in actuality.

When I finished writing my first book, I knew that this was the time for me to end my life. Only when that very night I wrote the title of the second book, was I freed and re-born. I was born into the destiny and purpose of my life.

Seven years later, I wrote the sixth book, Integrated Medicine, a unique research book. This book is the complete opposite, in terms of its manner of writing, of the first book. The book was written in a format and according to all the rules of scientific writing. This book also presents the format for integrated medicine for therapists and physicians. The book concentrates, organizes, and explains the way and rationale of all that I wrote in the previous books.

The considerable work that I undertook was channeled eventually into the creation of an educational treatment method called the Lousky method. The method is taught in a four year program for the training of therapists, instructors, trainers, and teachers in the Lousky College in Tel Aviv. This research was the natural continuation of my work till this very day.

 

8. Format for the Creation of Integrated Medicine

            There are five main characteristics for the creation of a format and framework for integrated medicine through the 32 intelligences (life values) according to the Book of Life for medical centers and therapists. They are as follows:

  1. Scale (ladder) of health
  2. Motive for change
  3. Lousky medicines
  4. ‘Basket’ of treatments
  5. Circle of therapists

8.1 The Scale (Ladder) of Health

The scale (ladder) of health is the main characteristic of the format of integrated medicine. The scale of health was derived from the division into dimensions of the 32 intelligences. The scale of health is built of four dimensions and describes the person’s changing needs, the abilities that he can develop in every dimension, and the need to move between the dimensions for the purpose of balance. Whole health is possible through the balance between the different needs in each one of the four dimensions.

According to the vision of integrated medicine, the number of dimensions in the scale, the content, and the needs that characterize every dimension, as well as the need to transfer from dimension to dimension, are the milestones for whole medicine. The dimensions of the scale of health express conflicting and complementary interests that characterize the changing needs and challenges for a full life. The division into four reflects the entire range of life. The importance of the scale of health lies in its ability to assess and rank the four dimensions among the patients, from the stronger dimension to the weaker dimension, for the purpose of practice, treatment, or reinforcement of the weak aspects. 

Four Dimensions of the Scale of Health

            The World Health Organization defines health in a way that leaves no doubt regarding the importance of the different dimensions that comprise the whole as a way of achieving whole medicine. “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well being” (World Health Organization, 1947).

            The world, according to the Book of Creation, divides into four dimensions – the Scale of Health. The four dimensions express contradictory and complementary desires that characterize changing needs and challenges for a whole and full life. The division into four reflects the complete range of life:

  • The four elements: air, fire, water, and earth;
  • The four realities: silent, growing, living, and speaking;
  • The four tasks of life: love, career, money, and health;
  • The four dimensions: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual;
  • The four animals of sanctity: bull, man, lion, and eagle;
  • The four processes of creation: thought, words, effort, reality;
  • The four ranks of being: body, mind, spirit, soul;
  • The four types of healing: movement, nutrition, energy, awareness;
  • The four types of communication: supportive, analytical, task-oriented, expressive;
  • The four types of teachers: problem solving, appreciating, directing, challenging.

Each one of the four dimensions divides into a number of parts, so that altogether 32 intelligences are created. In each one of the 32 intelligences, there is the desire to receive and the desire to give. The balance between the desire to receive and the desire to give creates free will, which is the force of life (the chi). To create whole medicine, balance is needed between the desire to receive and the desire to give in every intelligence. The lack of balance between the two desires over time will cause pain, mishaps, and illnesses.

I chose the term ‘scale’ or ‘ladder’ to describe ‘whole medicine’, through the model of integrated medicine. The head of the ladder of health is found in the air (the element of air / the spiritual dimension), in the middle of the ladder are found the water and fire (the intellectual and emotional dimensions, respectively), and at the basis of the ladder is the ground (the element of earth / the physical dimension). I saw this image in the Biblical story of Jacob’s dream, which presents man’s longing to live in wholeness, in all the dimensions, on the Health Ladder. In this perspective, when the head of the ladder reaches the sky and its legs are on the ground, the ‘dreamer’ can go up and down the ladder freely, as he sees fit. “He had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven ….” (Genesis 28:12). The painting of Marc Chagall, Jacob’s Ladder (see the following picture), describes in the language of art the whole creation.

 

 

Jacob’s Ladder, Marc Chagall, 1887-1985

Ascending the ladder is similar to swimming against the current. Swimming against the current will lead to the source of the water (as well as the source of the problem). Descending the ladder is similar to swimming with the current, relaxation, change of approach, change of values and beliefs (desire to give). Descending the ladder necessitates connection to the joy of life, joy as a compass to successes and to destiny (desire to receive). In the encounter between the desire to receive and the desire to give, free will was found – the power of life for change, training, and healing (Lousky, 2005).

The Relationship between Body and Mind on the Health Scale

The relationship between body and mind is the basis of integrated medicine, which is the integration of scientific medicine (body) with lousky medicine (mind). This relationship is essential to observation, assessment and treatment, to the rising and descending on the ladder of health, which is, as aforementioned, the main characteristic in integrated medicine.

The body can be described in the following ways: through pain, through pleasure, through posture, through body language. We also describe the twists and pains of the soul through the body. When we say ‘his legs froze’ perhaps we are speaking of the legs on the physical level but refer to fear (bodily and emotional) found in the legs. When we say ‘green eyed monster’, we do not see eyes that are physically green but refer to jealousy  (intellectual dimension). Expressions such as ‘sharp tongued’, ‘grinding teeth’, ‘blood going to the head’ and others express a mental situation (spiritual, intellectual, and emotional dimensions) and not necessarily a physical situation. Lousky medicine addresses these expressions in their dual meaning, ‘body mind’. Sentences that describe, apparently, a physical problem, do not only remain in the physical meaning. According to the holistic approach, they also are expressed in other areas. When a child is constipated (physical dimension), he is brought to a pediatrician. Why should the mother, kindergarten teacher, or teacher not treat constipation that originates from the emotional blockage of the intestines (Reich, 1991)[8]. The body is not a separate entity, it is an expression of the mind, just as the mind expresses itself through the body. The body is the home of the soul, the temple of the soul. The body tells the story of the soul, the body talks endlessly, sometimes it also yells aloud and sometimes the shout is through the deafening silence (Reich, 1991).

The body expresses itself in different ways: through beating, concentration, grounding, focusing, breathing, holding, moving, relations, and connections. The body expresses contents and a framework of the contents – what and how. Body language is sharp, intuitive, lacking in comprises, without masks. The body expresses itself through body language, which is the expression of the social and cultural conditions. The body also expresses itself through body positions posture, and expression and these express the outlooks, beliefs, and educational influences. The body writes everything, every mental state is recorded in the body lines, in the body postures, in the body language, and in the body grasp. The body is the soul’s home. When a person does not feel at home, in many ways, he is not balanced, he is not at his best. This unbalanced situation, when it continues over time, invites mishaps and illnesses.

Life is a type of movement even when there is no movement. Life is movement and change. Movement in the body is created through beating (Reich, 1991) and there needs to be fit between the pace of beating and the environment. Experiences (emotional dimension) create muscle contractions (physical dimension) and become armor (intellectual dimension). The armor of the body is similar to defense mechanisms in psychology. The armor, like the defense mechanisms, must be slowly and carefully removed. The removal of the armor will provide the result of the qualities in the body and body posture. The armor will appear between the latitudinal and longitudinal lines of the body. There are seven latitudinal lines in the body and they are parallel to the energy areas according to chakras. The armor appears between the latitudinal lines (chakras) and the longitudinal lines (meridians). The armor is like a dam that on both sides appears imbalance: on the one side there is a flood and on the other side there is a drought. The blockage (dam) must be slowly released and the flood must be gradually dried out. 

Every emotional process leaves its mark on the body. Every emotional imbalance begins its path in the spiritual body that influenced the intellective body – which created approaches and beliefs, which created feelings of ear, which were imprinted on the body. Armor is created as a result of insults, the armor is created as a result of developmental traumas and a result of the experience of the word ‘no’. The experience of insult is an emotional blow, ‘you do not understand anything’ as a way to emphasize the inferiority of another person and emotional exploitation to provide narcissist needs (desire to receive). The insult remains in the physical memory and creates the armor. Flexibility, melting, or decomposition of the armor is possible through work with the body – touch, movement, breathing, and sounds. These are experiences that the body remembers and they will appear in the form of contractions and pains in the body. When a person ignores his feelings and experiences and conceals them in the storage room instead of taking them, through the heart, they will appear in the back part of the body – they will appear through pain in the waist, back, nape of the neck, and the head (Reich, 1991).

We see that every emotional process leaves its mark on the body. Every emotional imbalance begins in the spiritual body and influences the intellectual body, which created the approaches and beliefs, which created feelings of fear, which were written in the body. When the therapist has training in treatment methods for the treatment of each one of the four dimensions, the therapist can treat the dimension that is not balanced and thus stop the mishap, before it appears in the body. The necessity to train therapists in treatment methods to treat the four dimensions (health ladder) is at the basis of integrated medicine.

The Health Ladder and the Human Pyramid of Needs

            The different dimensions of the health leader express all that is. They create contradictory and complementary desires that characterize changing needs and challenges for a full life. Every person has different needs, during his life and during his development, according to the division into levels of the ladder of health. The human pyramid of needs describes the person’s factors of motivation, arranged hierarchically, when the fulfillment of the essential needs precedes the fulfillment of less essential needs (Maslow, 1960)[9]. The lack of realization of some of the human needs creates imbalance in the absent level. The prolonged lack of balance will cause mishaps and illnesses.

            It is customary to describe the hierarchy of needs as a pyramid, when at the basis of the pyramid are found the fundamental needs necessary to ensure a person’s physical existence. As one rises in the pyramid towards its apex, the needs become spiritual. When needs from a lower level are realized, the needs of the level above become relevant. Every type of needs is accompanied by an analysis of what happens when these needs are not fulfilled.

  1. The physiological needs are found at the basis of the pyramid: breathing, water, food, maintenance of temperature, and sleep.
  2. The need for security: This need is found above the physiological needs. When these are provided, the person is then troubled over his need for quiet, security, stability, and protection; lacking the satisfaction of this need, anxieties, tension, and a series of behaviors deriving from this lack then develop.
  3. The need for love and belonging: The need for relations with other people, for friends, for love, for children, for a sense of community belonging. The lack of satisfaction of this need induces feelings of loneliness, social anxiety, etc.
  4. The need for appreciation: It is necessary to differentiate between the need for the appreciation of other people – social status, degrees, recognition, publicity, and political power and the need for self-appreciation – self-confidence, achievement orientation, independence, and freedom. Lacking the fulfillment of this need, feelings of lack of self-confidence, inferiority complexes, and low self-image appear, and these awaken mental problems and psychological disorders. The first four layers of needs are those that cause the person a lack, when they are not fulfilled, and when they are realized – he does not feel a thing. All these needs are existential needs, which the person needs to maintain his physical and mental health (Maslow, 1970). A severe lack in the fulfillment of these needs in childhood may lead to the development of disorders in the person’s behavior and to the impairment in his functioning. The person who suffered from this severe lack will be focused all his life on his frustration and feelings that he has missed out.
  5. The fifth and supreme need is the need for self-fulfillment. This need is not realized or balanced. This is an ongoing need for self-expression, for inner happiness, for creativity, for the full actualization of the individual’s abilities. The fulfillment of this need, which is not existential like that previous four needs, is very rare. The motives behind this fulfillment are the search for truth, morality, beauty, wholeness, essentialness, uniqueness, justice, simplicity, happiness, independence, and meaning. When people fill their basic needs (the first four levels) but do not succeed in achieving self-realization, they suffer from different psychological problems, such as depression, alienation, despair, etc. (Maslow, 1970).

      The fulfillment of human needs at all the levels of the health scale create the whole, the holistic. They express contradictory and complementary needs that characterize changing needs and challenges for a full life. The fulfillment of the human needs in all levels, according to integrated medicine, is the key to holistic health

Movement between the Four Levels of the Health Scale

            The movement bottom up and top down on the ladder of health is what allows the integration of all the needs into the shaping of the personality of a whole person. When the person’s needs in one of the levels are not fulfilled, imbalance is created. The pattern of integrated medicine proposes certain tools for balance between the levels, through the training of the weak intelligences and through lousky medicines for support and reinforcement of the weak levels.

            The individual’s personality is divided into four worlds (levels) – the objective world, the subjective world, the symbolic world, and the holistic world. King emphasizes and enhances the need for balance between the levels through movement on the health scale (King, 1988)[10].

  • In the objective world (the physical dimension), the assumption is that every thing has a beginning and an end. The color of the trees, the smell of the flowers, the song of birds, the feeling of cold, the reality of plants, animals, people. Things that can be seen, smelled, and touched, things for which we can collect information and process it in the framework of empiric experiments are a format of objective thinking. The expression of the objective world is separation and is external to the observing person. In the observer’s eyes, it appears obvious and acceptable as a single possible truth. In the objective world, everything is measurable and there is only one (scientific) truth. In this dimension, the healing occurs through medicines, analyses, massage, plants, movement, and nutrition.
  • In the subjective world (emotional dimension) everything is related, everything is found in one circle. The truth is not one and everything is correct and true. A person is aware of the light and forces that act around him, he feels himself a part of them, one part, not separate. The past and the future occur in the present, energy is natural communication, thoughts and feelings are conveyed naturally from person to person. Hence, every harm to one person or to nature is harm to every person. In this dimension, healing occurs through an integration of arts, energetic balance, energy transference, healing, shiatsu, stones, etc.
  • The symbolic world (intellectual dimension) is a world of symbols. A person is a part of everything. The birds sing their promise of happiness and the sunrise is the touch of the Creator’s light. The person writes or draws to capture the symbolism of the moment. A dream, too, is a symbol and therefore reality is a dream that can be changed. Every experience in the symbolic world is the person’s reflection. To change the experiences, a person can change what the event symbolizes for him or change himself so that his refection will change and then the event, too, will change. This is an excellent tool to differentiate between how beliefs are reflected in the body and experiences and how conditions and systems of relations change when the beliefs change. In the symbolic world, the meaning that everything has is the meaning that the person gives it. On this dimension, the healing occurs through different treatment methods such as deciphering dreams, guided imagery, positive thinking, mantras, and in the types of healing that required the patient’s belief in himself.
  • In the holistic world (the spiritual dimension), the person is the light and he feels how the light of the sun becomes power. The person’s presence is what allows the light to be what we were. Since everything has one identity, ‘everything is me’, ‘I am the thing itself’. A person can assumes roles and experiences successfully so that the experiences delineate him. On this dimension, the healing occurs through finding purpose and destiny, through forgiveness and prayer.

To Move between the Dimension for the Purpose of Inner Change

            The imbalance appears when a person acts only in one dimension and does not move between the dimensions and does not combine between the different needs. To move between the worlds, a person needs to effect an inner change, to change approach and the direction related to his goals, to experience the world and the place where he is found from love, to hold onto love and not let go. An inner change occurs when a person moves from dimension to dimension: “I am separate, I am within, I am a part, and I am the thing itself”. The movement from dimension to dimension allows change to occur for the purpose of the improvement of abilities (intelligences) and the performance of the life tasks (love, career, money, and health).

            When a patient is engaged solely in the physical dimension, meaning ‘I am separate’, he can bring the knowledge as it was the ‘single truth’ and to treat without involvement. When the patient rises in the ladder to the emotional dimension, he brings his knowledge as a relative truth and examines it versus the patient’s feelings. This way empowers the patient and allows him to assume responsibility on the treatment. When the therapist works in the intellectual dimension, “I am a part”, he adjusts the treatment to the patient’s beliefs and in this way the inner forces he recruits inner forces for healing, which enable a ‘quantum leap’ (Chopra, 1997)[11]. The quantum leap is an inner change, which alters the genetic code and effects ‘spontaneous healing’[12]. When the therapist works in the spiritual dimension, it is as if he were the patient, the illness, and the possibilities of healing, all one unit. Only the therapist’s and the patient’s free will are what determines what to choose. The ability to move between the dimension is what induces the desired miracle and it enables the ‘quantum leap’ and whole healing.

            A person is an entity constructed of four dimensions that express the whole. The four dimensions express contradictory and complementary desires, which characterize changing needs and challenges for a full life. The division into four reflects the complete range of life: the four elements – air, fire, water, earth; the four realities – silent growing living speaking, the four tasks of life – love, career, money, health; and the four dimensions – physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. The body is an expression of the world of emotion. The emotional dimension is an expression of the intellectual world (attitudes and beliefs). The intellectual dimension is an expression of the spiritual world, which is the ability to define the desire to give or receive and to determine the direction freely. Every mishap or difficulty, and happiness and success, in one dimension appears in the other ones. The different dimensions indicate the same phenomenon with a change of form – change of form from air to fire, and from fire to water, and from water to earth. This is the same entity that goes up and down on the ladder. This is the same entity that speaks in different languages. The four dimensions are one unity that expresses different frequencies on the whole human ladder. We saw that only an integrated action and movement in all four of the dimensions is what ensures body and mind balance (King, 1988).

At every moment over the course of life, a person is found and acts in one of the worlds (dimensions). Frequently a person acts in both or in three or in all four worlds (dimensions) at the same time. Although there is a world (dimension) in which the person lives naturally, the way to integrated medicine is balance among the dimensions. A person needs to be aware of his desire to receive and desire to give in every dimension and to balance between the desires. When a person does not act over time in one of the four dimensions, imbalance is created. To restore the balance, it is necessary to act opposite to the personal nature (movement from bottom up); it is necessary to change approach and then to change habits. At the end of the process of ten stages (the therapists circle, discussed in the continuation) the reality changes.

 

8.2 The Motive of Change

The motive of change is one of the five main characteristics of the format of integrated medicine. The motive of change is the polarity that appears in every phenomenon in nature, as in every intelligence. The unending struggle between the desire to give and the desire to receive is the motive of inner change, of movement in the health scale, and transition from dimension to dimension (Lousky, 2005).

The ability to act within the contradictions is so essential, according to the Kabala approach of the Book of Creation, that it appears that this ability alone is a main tool for healing. When this ability is absent, it is also the primary source of blockages and imbalance. Every assessment begins with the therapist’s observation of the patient’s ability to act from contradictions, to live with them peacefully, and to make them into an engine of change, for the ascent and descent on the ladder of health. In the Book of Creation the words ‘male and female’ appear 24 times[13]. This is to teach us that in every human trait, in every limb of the body, in every phenomenon in nature, everything was created male and female – different with the goal of creating unity – separate parts with the aim of creating the whole.

It is necessary to discuss the concept of ‘male and female’ in the context of the energy frequency in them. Male and female are bipolar forms and energy that exist in every phenomenon in nature. Male and female are the desire to receive and the desire to give (numbers and letters), these two desires are created from free will (the force of life) (Lousky, 2005).

According to the Book of Creation, there are three elements – the element of air (free will), which created the water (the desire to give), which created the fire (the desire to receive). The water, in the end of every process, creates the land as the fourth element. The land (visible) like reality is an expression of what happens in the three elements (invisible) that created everything.

The Book of Changes, attributed to Confucius (700 BC), contains the first mentioned of the Chinese doctrine of yin and yang (Pearle, 2000). Yin and yang symbolize the two qualities that simultaneously are one thing and its opposite, but in complementary fashion. Every phenomenon in Chinese medicine is defined according to the degree of yin or yang in it. In any event, it includes the two qualities in terms of complementary contradictions. Using these two forces, it is possible to explain how the universe developed and the principles of order that reign therein according to Taoism. The yang is the active side (the letters), the male. The yin is the passive side (the numbers), the female. These two forces cannot exist separately, and as long as they act reciprocally the process of being exists. When this reciprocity stops being balanced, the good order is harmed (as in the case of illness) and may cease to exist if one force overcomes the other or disappears (Pearle, 2000).

The phenomenon of contrasts that creates unity can be seen in the Star of David that is comprised of two triangles that are found on one another. These two triangles represent the dual force that derives from the unity: yin and yang, male and female, human and Divine. The upper triangle is considered male and the lower triangle is considered female. The contradiction and the polarity existing between the levels and between the triangles exist in every part of nature, in electricity (positive and negative), in the human cell (positive electron and negative proton), male and female, day and night, high and low tide, magnetic polarity. In the Book of Creation the contradictions were first mentioned (male and female he created them) and later, in Genesis 1 the contradictions in the light and dark, sky and land were mentioned. The goal of the polarity is to bring the person to produce energy from within himself, an engine of inner change. The presence of the contradictions is what creates the harmony needed for the inner change. It enables the discovery of the unity that is concealed in the diversity.

According to the Book of Creation, everything connects to something that is similar to it, to an opposite. The contradictions create the whole. If there is no question, then there is no answer. If there is no medicine, there is also no illness. If there is no male, there is also no female. The chi, the life energy according to the Chinese or the free will according to the Kabalistic approach of the Book of Creation, was born with the principle of polarity, which describes the initial relationship between yin  (desire to receive) and yang (desire to give), between sky and land, between energy and material (numbers and letters). The chi (free will) includes all and connects to all and together they create the ability to form and grow to the whole with all its parts. This view of things explains the entire world, with all its phenomena, as occurring all as a result of the contradictory but complementary relationship between the desire to receive and the desire to give, two qualities of free will, which is the force of life.

The nature of the yin-yang relationship is explained also in the verbal meaning in Chinese calligraphy, yin, ‘the side of the mountain cast in shadow’ is hidden from the eyes of the sun. The shaded side is considered passive, dark, wet, concealed, internal, contracted, the activity is slow. Yang, the lit side of the mountain, is revealed to the sun. The sun illuminates it, it is active, hot, dry, external, expansive, with rapid and energetic activity. However, the place of the sun for the world is not fixed. The clouds too, which cast their shadows on the earth are found in motion. What is at one moment under a shadow may have been in full sunlight a number of minutes ago, and what is now in sunlight may be shrouded in dark with nightfall. The shaded part is the yin and the lighted part is the yang, and in regards to the momentary quality of light and shade and the constant cycle of change, each one unavoidably becomes the other. The light of the sun on the hilltop is a game that presents a passing quality that is subject to change. At every moment and in every phenomenon that we experience it is possible to discern the temporal and transient quality of yin and yang.

According to this model, greater warmth is the desire to give (found in the upper part of the ladder of health), as opposed to colder, which is the desire to receive (found in the lower part of the ladder of health). Thus lighter, as opposed to darker, is higher, as opposed to lower, etc. According to the same model, the cyclical phenomena of change in nature are explained – the change of seasons, the change of day and night, the fact of life and death – all the phenomena. Thus, everything is controlled by or influenced by the energetic relationship b etween the heavens and the earth – the silent world, the growing world, the living world, and of course humanity itself – the desire to receive and the desire to give (numbers and letters), the first two powers that exist in all things area the most basic division of every phenomenon. It is possible to describe what happens to a person’s health when the movement from top down and bottom up on the ladder of health is ended. The movement on the scale through the inner change is holistic health – a foundation of integrated medicine.

The Chinese describe every material, and people too, as bubbles of chi that are forced inwards until they become bodies – material, which is, in essence, a transformation of the chi. According to the Kabala of the Book of Creation, the origin of the transformation lies in the type of the relationship between the desire to receive and the desire to give (numbers and letters), the two qualities of free will (Lousky, 2005).

Each one of the qualities needs a quality that contradicts it so as to receive meaning and to exist. The existence of one is essential to the existence of the next. Everything in the universe has an opposite force in value and together they complement one another: matter and anti-matter, good bacteria and bad bacteria. Like the poles of the magnet and the aspiration to balance, the desire to receive and the desire to give will attract one another. All the phenomena embody the two qualities at varying levels. Every phenomenon is defined according to its degree of the desire to receive and the desire to give. Every desire to receive and desire to give is relative to one another. Every desire to receive and desire to give are subject to another inner division. Nothing wants to receive absolutely or give absolutely. The desire to receive and the desire to give always change according to one another. The relations of forces between the desire to receive and the desire to give act reciprocally constantly and create flow and change. The most significant change occurs when the desire to receive reaches its apex and changes into the desire to give or when the desire to give changes in turn to the desire to receive.

The desire to receive and the desire to give are a mechanism of life, they are the force of life according to the Book of Creation (Lousky, 2005), while according to Chinese philosophy they are the energy of chi. According to the Japanese, they symbolize the qi, and according to the Hindi they symbolize the paranah. This is the polarity that appears in every phenomenon in nature, in every intelligence and in every dimension, this is the incessant struggle between the desire to give and the desire to receive (numbers and letters) and it is the engine of inner change, of movement, and transition from dimension to dimension.

The (seeming) imbalance between the desire to receive and the desire to give is what causes pains, mishaps, and illnesses. Life does not allow ongoing imbalance and therefore the moment that imbalance is born, even in the person’s thoughts, life acts to correct and restore the balance. The pain that appears as a result of the imbalance is an alarm and alert of the force of life so that the person can observe himself and correct the imbalance that is created between the desire to receive and the desire to give. In essence, the pain and illness are actions of balance (temporary) that appear against the power of the imbalance that is created.

The light reduces of itself, gives way to give the person a personal expression and freedom of choice. When the light makes room, a void is created, a space that lacks meaning and purpose so that it will be filled with the desire of people. The void is an instrument that wants to be filled with light, every moment that the instrument is emptied from the light the desire to accept anew is created, light that is absent. When the instrument extends, a lager void is created and the desire to receive increases, when the instrument becomes a tube for the transference of light to others, in other words, receives in order to give, it is always found in a situation of lacking and therefore also in a situation of the desire to give. Just like the desire to give, so is the scope of the joy of life and happiness that the person produces for himself (Ashlag, 1988)[14].

Desire is the force that motivates the dimensions of the universe, physical and spiritual, body and mind. The silent world, the growing world, the living world, and the speaking world are measured according to their degree of will power, their belief, and their ability to realize it. The desire, the life force, is found in every place and at every moment; the desire is not limited in any way. It appears in an unconscious manner. Only after the appearance of the desire, does the conscious thought of what to do appear in the force. The thought that is limited by its very nature limits the desire in its purpose and desired outcome. The limitation of the desire by the conscious thought is performed from many reasons related to the person’s outlook and belief in his ability to absorb and include the proposed quantity of abundance or the belief of ‘how much I deserve’ (desire to receive), whether he profited the abundance or whether he still needs to work. In many cases, the desire is present and the person does not know what to do with the desire, he also does not know what he wants. For the desire to flow, be discovered in life, and be translated into an outcome, there must appear a thought that limits the desire to a defined need, a clear purpose.

The definition of an objective (the definition of an objective needs to be in variables of space and time – how much and when) is a definition of a space that has an end, a death. The definition of the desire is like putting a fence up for the desire. Only with the appearance of the limitation and the definition of the space is the power of will liberated and it then fills the defined space. Only after the nothing was defined does life appear. Only after a limitation is created is the unlimited force of life freed. The infiniteness of the desire allows the transfer of the force of will from one person to another or from one material to another, and this does not take away from the giver. The force of will acts like the light cast from a candle, when the light is transferred from one candle to another candle, there will be two candles and the light will not be detracted from the candle that gives its light (Ashlag, 1988).

The polarity that appears in every phenomenon in nature, in every intelligence, and in every dimension, the unending struggle between the numbers and the letters, between the desire to give and the desire to receive, is the force of life and the engine of the transition from dimension to dimension, in the ladder of health, for the purpose of the inner change.

8.3 Lousky medicines

            Lousky medicines or Lousky medicines are one of the five main characteristics of the format of integrated medicine. Lousky medicines are simple human actions, such as sleeping, showering, positive thinking, good deeds, hugging, kissing, love, sexual relations, walking, visiting new places, etc. In each one of the human actions there is the desire to give and the desire to receive, so that it is possible to direct to acceptance or to giving. Every human action enables practice, training, maintenance, improvement, or correction of each one of the 32 intelligences. The awareness of the desire to receive and the desire to give in every action is what motivates the power of life (the free will) and makes every simple human action a medicine (Lousky, 2005). Lousky medicines are instruments for the prevention of mishaps and illnesses and medicines for healing in integrated medicine.

            Lousky medicines are a product of the intelligences and are given for the purpose of the training of the intelligences. Understanding the role of each one of the intelligences  (see the chapter on the 32 intelligences) will enable adjustment of the medicines to the intelligences. Intelligences are abilities or life skills (Gardner, 1996).

              The four stages for assessment and treatment through the 32 intelligences: the ability to identify lack in emotional dimension, the ability to define desire in the spiritual dimension, the ability to change approach in the intellectual dimension, and the ability to determines goals and implement them in the physical dimension (Lousky, 2005). The training and practice of intelligences need to produce products measurable by three standards: change in the physical state (world), change over time (year), and change in essentialness and joy in life (mind/soul). “…Three progenitors and their offspring, namely: the seven planets and their hosts, and the twelve oblique points. To confirm this there are faithful witnesses; the world, year and man …” (The Book of Creation, 6:42).

            Every person has 32 intelligences at a varying dosage and a unique degree. The personal profile of the intelligences of every person constitutes the unique language with which he functions and in which he excels. The human abilities develop through the neurological relations and electrical currents. The neurons are like the intelligences, they are physical entities that can be developed using different means and they respond as do the muscles in the body, responding to training and practice. Using practice, it is possible to develop the network of neurons and neurological connections in the mind and in every part of the body, which are required for learning, for optimal and balanced exploitation of the potential of the 32 intelligences. The awareness of the desire to receive and the desire to give in every action is what motivates the force of life (free will) and makes every simple human action into a ‘medicine’ (Lousky, 2005).

            Table number 4, titled Lousky medicines, presents simple human actions, according to the intelligences. Training and practice of simple actions will allow the strengthening or correction of intelligences. For every intelligence it is possible to develop many additional ‘medicines’. This table presents one possibility for every intelligence, for the purpose of exemplification.

The Mind and Human Intelligence

            ‘Lousky medicines’ are simple human actions that act in the same way as do chemical medicines.

A person’s resistance to pain depends on a group of biochemical materials called endorphins and encephalons that act as the body’s natural painkillers (Chopra, 1997). The word ‘endorphin’ means inner morphine and the word ‘encephalon’ means in the mind. In other words, these chemicals are a version of morphine that is created by the mind itself. Strong feelings, for instance, can overcome the pain signals that come from the body, as happens when a mother runs to save her child from a burning home.

Morphine and endorphins block pain by adhering to the receptor of the nerve cell and preventing the entry of chemicals that bear the message of pain. According to this model, an endorphin molecule is like a word, say the word is ‘calm’ it is possible to hypothesize that every time that the word pain reaches the mind’s attention, the mind has the possibility of returning as a response the word ‘calm’ and eliminating the pain. Endorphin and morphine are basically identical; the difference is that one is created by a person and the other is created by the opium flower. There is nothing special in the molecules themselves; the ability to create through human intelligences is what is important. The adrenaline molecules are not what cause the mother to run into the burning house to save her child. The endorphin molecules are not what prevent the feeing of pain from the fiery flames. The desire, the certainty, the determination, the love, the commitment are what protect against the pain. These intelligences (medications) found a chemical channel that the brain can use to converse with the body and protect it. Hence, the consciousness expresses itself in the body through chemicals. These chemicals are not produced only in the mind, whose function is to think, but also in the immune system and in other systems.

The argument is that the intelligences that flow in the body require a material basis. The cell receptors dance without pause on the cell surface and change their form so as to absorb new messages. “The consciousness and the body are like two parallel universes. Everything that occurs in the mental universe must leave traces on the physical universe …Your body, as you see it at this moment, is a physical picture, three dimensional, of what you think … Nothing can move without moving the other parts of the whole.” (Chopra, 1997)

It is not only the mind thinking; every place in the body where there are receptors for the molecules bear messages. In other words, in every cell in the body there is thinking. In every place in the body, in the heart and in the mind, in the liver and in the facial skin, there is the same DNA and this means that the heart cell or the facial skin cell can behave as does the brain cell. “Till now science has determined that we are physical machines that somehow have learned to think. Now it is clear that we are thoughts that have learned to create a physical machine.” (Chophra, 1997).

 

Researches and Lousky medicines

            Researches prove that simple human actions (holistic / Lousky medicines) are related to health. Lousky medicines are a main characteristic of integrated medicine. Proving the validity of lousky medicines through empirical researches will provide valid support of the format of integrated medicine. The following paragraphs present the findings of certain research studies.

            In recent years, it has been scientifically proven that prayer has healing power. Dr. Avi Belich of the Lev HaSharon Psychiatric Hospital, who wrote on the power of prayer to health disease in the Journal Medicine (2002), presents the concept of Distance Prayer (DP). This concept describes the situation in which a person or a number of people pray for the well being of a patient whom they do not know and whom they have never met. According to Dr. Belich, the effectiveness of distance prayer in the healing of illnesses has been scientifically proven. Many researches cited in the same journal summarize, “Distance prayer can influence patients with blood vessel infections. The treatment is efficient in financial terms, does not detrimentally influence, and must be considered for use as a part of the clinical procedure” (Professor Levovits, The Rabin Medical Center, Petah Tikva, Israel.)

In another place, the researchers from the American Heart Institute in Kansas, the United States note that distance prayer has been proven to be effective in cases of short stays in the heart treatment units. The conclusion from the article is that prayer can be an effective addition to regular medical care.

            Another ‘lousky medicine’ for which there are findings is sexual relations. One of the prominent researches on the topic was published a number of years ago in the British Medical Journal (Shiraz, 2006)[15]. This research showed that men who hold sexual relations very frequently live a longer life and are less prone to die at a young age. It became clear that the group that was less sexually active had twice the mortality rate as the more active group.

            The researchers examined healthy people who did not have sexual relations and sick people who had relations and using statistical relations proved that sexual relations cause good health and long life. Sexual relations also are related to a lower incidence of prostate cancer among men. The same article describes an Australian research published about two years ago that showed that the more frequently a man experiences orgasm and ejaculation (whether through coition or masturbation), the lower his chances of developing prostate cancer are. Professor Graham Gellis, the manager of the Center for Epidemiology of Cancer in Australia, who was the head of the research summarized, “It appears that a high frequency of ejaculation prevents cancer inducing substances that came with the blood to the prostate from accumulating there and causing cancer inducing changes in the cells.” Sexual relations contribute also to the reinforcement of the immune system and this facilitates the prevention of autoimmune diseases (asthma, psoriasis, lupus, and others), in which the immune system attacks the body, as well as influenza, colds, and healing of sores. Regular sexual relations increase in the blood the level of antibodies – immunoglobin – that strengthen the body’s coping.

            Another lousky medicine, which was examined in research, is ‘attention’. Dr. Ornish in his book Love and Survival: The Scientific Basis for the Healing Power of Intimacy (2004) for the first time introduces into the equation of health and sickness topics that have not been discussed in the past by the medical world. His method to healing the heart is today implemented in a number of hospitals in the United States and in the Assaf HaRofeh Medical Center in Israel in the framework of support groups for the healing of the heart. The heart healing method of Dr. Ornish has caused a regression of arterial sclerosis (the process that blocks the heart arteries and causes eventually heart attacks and brain incidents). Love, support, and belonging have the most meaningful impact on our health. It was found that the subjects with conventional risk factors (high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure, advanced age, diabetes, EKG disorders) were candidates to develop new arterial sclerosis twenty times as much as others in the coming five years. The people who answered affirmatively to one question – does your wife express her love of you – suffered significantly less from heart pressure even when they had the same risk factors. Those with risk factors who answered this question negatively suffered from pressure considerably greater. As the risk factors were more meaningful, the sense of being loved by the spouse had a more significant neutralizing impact. The researchers summarized this as ‘The love and support of the wife is an important balancing factor that in the end reduces the risk of heaviness in the chest even when there are high risk factors” (Ornish, 2004).

The conclusion is clear: ‘lousky medicines’ have a proven research ability in their ability to health or strengthen against illness. Dr. Ornish not only indicates the risk factors but also details how it is possible to make a risk factor into a protection factor, how it is possible to increase the sense of belonging, support, love, and intimacy in our lives. He first chooses the topic of interpersonal communication. He leads us step after step to communication that brings us closer as opposed to communication that increases the distance. According to Ornish, closeness and intimacy mean healing, while distance, lack of trust, cynicism, and isolation lead to illness. He speaks of the power of words and of thoughts. Words have the power of life and death and thoughts have the ability to create a new reality (Ornish, 2004).

            Music, too, has healing power. Music is one of the ‘lousky medicines’ that have been empirically researched. In an articled published in Other Lives (February 2006) the author writes that a research conducted in the Macabi Residence Homes found that listening to music encourages recovery in patients. A research held in the Macabi residences in the Golden Building in the city of Bat Yam examined people who had a stroke and people whose right brain lobe was damaged. In the research, the patients were divided into three groups. The members of the first group did not hear music at all, the members of the second group heard a sonata of Mozart, and the members of the third group heard music that they liked to hear at their homes. The research results show that the situation of the Mozart listeners improved as opposed to the patients in the other two groups. This research was conducted following the inspiration of an American research held in 1993, in which intelligence tests were held for students before and after they listened to a Mozart symphony. The findings showed a clear improvement in the scores after listening to Mozart. Following the research findings, the book The Mozart Affect was written and audio tapes were produced to improve the learning, healing, and creating abilities and to induce calm using listening to music.

            Professor Karso, head of the Psychology Department of Bar-Ilan University, in his book The Heart – The Complete Guide to Health and Recovery (2004) provides a series of advice on maintaining the health and preventing heart disease. His words of advice are general ‘lousky medicines’. The following paragraph presents some of his words of counsel.

            “Love yourself, spoil yourself, and remind yourselves that you are important and most loved in the entire world. Try to be optimistic, optimistic people succeed more, are loved more, and are healthier. Pessimistic people and people who see bad in everything bring upon themselves problems and illnesses, like a self-fulfilling prophecy. Positive thinking helps in all areas of life. Optimistic people are better liked in society, and even physicians like them better. If you have sunk into a chilling mood or self-pity, borrow a funny video or watch a funny television program. Leave this funk behind, the sooner the better. It is possible to heal illnesses or physical problems using meditation and guided imagery. Don’t immerse yourselves in unnecessary conflicts and tensions. Even if you win a trial against somebody who is hated, the mental energy you invest will cause you greater health and mental damage than the profit of the trial. Avoid superfluous arguments and situations of pressure and tension. Conflicts, wars, and unnecessary arguments consume energy, put the body in a situation of stress, and repress the immune system. Let yourself change. Let yourself be more flexible, give in and forgive, understand, accept, and attempt to try new things. Don’t get stuck because of fossilized and fixated thinking. An easy life is a smaller burden on your immune system. Be good to others, help people without thinking of profitability. Good deeds performed without expectation of compensation create positive energy and the knowledge that you have done something food helps your good feeling with yourself. Give to people more than they expect and do this happily. Take responsibility for your health. Don’t let a small argument harm a great friendship. Be open to changes – but not at the expense of your values. Learn the rules – and break a few of them now and then.” (Karso, 2004).

            Holistic medications or simple human actions act in the same way as chemical medications act. The consciousness expresses itself in the body through the chemicals that are created in the body. All the holistic methods of treatment are created as a result of observation of the miracle that occurs in the performance of human actions in an intentional and aware manner, a ‘quantum leap’ or ‘spontaneous healing’ (Chopra, 1997). Conscious and intentional contact became a massage – Swedish massage, medical massage, and tissue massage, Tawina, and Shiatsu, reflexology, and hence healing in its different forms developed. There is energetic healing and spiritual healing and Kabalistic healing, Reiki, and others. Conscious physical movement developed into sport in all its types, into the martial arts, into tai chi, into yoga, into chi kong, into the Alexander method, and the Feldenkreiz method. The engagement in food, consciously, developed into whole sciences and a new world of possibilities. Simple human stories developed into bibliotherapy and games developed into methods of therapy through art and competitive sports. More and more simple human actions develop and become orderly methods of treatment. Therapies have developed focused around plants, colors, stones, music, smells, oils, animals, water, space, dreams, sleeping, and prayer. In the end, every human action is a method of treatment and every treatment is, in essence, an intentional human action. Every conscious and intentional human action is a ‘medicine’ (Lousky, 2005).

            Healing through the intelligences is an acquired education process (see the circle of the therapists). Every inner change in one of the intelligences through ‘lousky medicine’ will appear in all four of the dimensions of the same intelligence. Every intelligence is a part of the whole and therefore every change in it influences the entire body, the whole (body and mind).

            The awareness of the desire to accept and the desire to give in every action is that motivates the force of life (the free will) and makes every simple human action into a ‘medicine’ (Lousky, 2005).

            The tree of life, according to the Book of Creation, is an instrument for assessment and treatment and for the determination of strategy and preparation of a treatment program (Lousky 2005).

8.4 The ‘Basket’ of Treatments

            The ‘basket’ of treatments is one of the five main characteristics of the format of integrated medicine. The basket of treatments includes all five of the methods of holistic and complementary treatment and scientific western treatment methods. Every treatment method has a main aspect and role for correction and lack of balance in one of the four dimensions. The choice of the treatment method needs to be performed on the basis of its ability to treat the certain dimension. Therefore, medical centers and therapists are recommended to adopt an integrated treatment package. In other words, they should choose methods of treatment suited to the dimension. The set of treatments for the creation of integrated medicine necessitates at least one holistic treatment method from every dimension.

            This chapter presents, in depth and in breadth, four methods of treatment. I chose one method for every dimension, as in the example of the set of treatments. Each one of the methods of treatments chosen acts accordingly for one of the dimensions that it trains. The methods chosen for the set of treatments, for instance, are meditation in the spiritual dimension, guided imagery in the intellectual dimension, arts integration in the emotional dimension, and acupuncture in the physical dimension. These methods of treatment were chosen also because of the fact that they have been empirically investigated and there are scientific findings that can confirm the abilities acquired in every dimension. Every one of the selected treatment methods needs to be practiced and the intelligences are trained in the same dimension for the purpose of maintenance, correction, or improvement.

The Abilities Acquired in Each One of the Dimensions

  • In the spiritual dimension, the ability to define the desire (desire to receive or desire to give) and its direction (to receive so as to give or to give so as to receive) is acquired.
  • In the intellectual dimension, the ability to change approaches and abilities is acquired.
  • In the emotional dimension, the ability to identify emotional lacks is acquired.
  • In the physical dimension, the ability to determine objectives and realize them is acquired.

To acquire these aforementioned abilities, it is necessary to practice and train the weak intelligences through lousky medicines, treatments through methods of treatment chosen for the treatment basket, and work in groups, adjusted to the dimensions. Table number 2 presents a list of complementary methods of treatment (holistic) that are active throughout the world, according to dimensions. The dimension chosen for every treatment method describes the method treatment aspect from the therapist’s perspective. Therapists and medical centers can choose, from the list, treatment methods and work in groups according to dimensions according to the patients’ population. The chosen treatment methods are the ‘treatment basket’ of the integrated medicine format.

Table number 5 describes the complementary methods of treatment.

Meditation Treatment

            Meditation is a method of treatment characteristic of the spiritual dimension. Through meditation, it is possible to train and practice the ability to define the desire (desire to receive or desire to give) and its direction (to receive so as to give or to give so as to receive).

            Goleman (2006) in his article Destructive Emotions[16] details the findings of research studies on the topic of meditation in recent years. The conclusion deriving from the recent scientific findings is that people who meditate have an advantage. The researches prove that meditation strengthens the immune system and brain scans show that it promotes the alleviation of tensions.

            Physicians recommend meditation as a way of preventing, slowing, or at least controlling pains induced by chronic illnesses, such as heart problems, AIDS, cancer, and sterility. It can also be used to increase the balance in situations of psychiatric disorders such as depression, hyperactivity, and attention deficit disorders, in combination between Eastern mysticism and Western science. For thirty years, the meditation researchers told us that it works wonderfully as a medicine for situations of pressure, according to Goleman (2006), but what is exciting in the new researches is seeing how meditation can train the mind and reshape it. Researches conducted using most sophisticated apparatus of simulation show that it can change the wiring in the brain, and shift, for example, the breaking point, where a traffic jam, for example, causes people to go crazy with nerves. Goleman relates that Richard Davidson from Wisconsin University used brain scans to show that meditation diverts the activity in the forward part of the brain (directly behind the forehead), from the right lobe to the left lobe. Following the research Davidson argues that the regular practice of meditation changes the tendencies in the brain from a state of ‘fight or flee’ to a state of acceptance and comfort. This change, he says, brings with it a rise in the level of satisfaction.

            Goleman further says that John Cabot, who studied Buddhism in the 1960s and founded the Clinic for the Alleviation of Tension in the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine in 1979 attempted to find scientific ways to prove the healing powers of meditation. Over the years he succeeded in helping more than fourteen thousand people cope with pain without the use of medications, while teaching them to focus on the feeling of pain and accept it rather than fight it. According to Cabot, the patients in the medical clinic have cancer, Aids, and chronic illnesses and if we think that we can do something for them, we are in trouble. However, if we change the point of reference and accept the idea that they can help themselves, if we provide them with effective tools, then the situation will change exceptionally.

Recently Cabot examined a group of patients with psoriasis, which is a skin disease that has no cure and which requires hospitalization, protection of the eyes, and standing naked in a room exposed to ultraviolet radiation. The treatment inspires pressure and anxiety among the patients. Cabot chose a number of them and taught them meditation techniques to reduce the anxiety. In two experiments he conducted, he discovered that the skin of the patients meditating was healed four times as fast as that of the other patients. In another research, he injected an influenza vaccination into two groups of subjects and measured the amount of antibodies they developed in their blood, and the brain activity of the patients new to meditation. The findings showed that not only the patients who engaged in meditation developed a greater number of antibodies but also those patients whose minds had succeeded in conveying the most of the activity from the right lobe to the left lobe evinced even higher levels of antibodies. The better the meditation technique, according to Cabot, the stronger the immune system. Meditation is an adventure, the greatest adventure that the human consciousness can choose. Meditation is only being without doing – no action, no thought, no emotion. You only exist, and this is a supreme pleasure. The essential core, the soul of meditation, is to observe, to know yourself (Osho, 1997).

            Integrated medicine is medicine that incorporates treatment methods from all four of the dimensions that compromise the whole person. Meditation is a treatment method that enables a person to observe and know himself and consequently practice and train the spiritual dimension (the free will) in each one of the 32 intelligences (Lousky, 2005).

            Table 6 presents the relationship between meditation and intelligences – meditation for the training, practice, and opening of the spiritual channel in each one of the 32 intelligences.

Treatment with Guided Imagery

            Guided imagery is a treatment method characteristic of the intellectual dimension. Through guided imagery, it is possible to practice and train the ability to change beliefs and approaches. The treatment with guided imagery begins with a short relaxation, when calming background music is used to enable the patient to enter the quiet and take long and rhythmic breaths. This state allows the patient to observe and empower his force of life. The process continues with a story and images through which it is possible to lead the patient to the root of the problem that we seek to treat.

            There are different types of imagery to effect change: open imagery, planned imagery, and guided imagery (Fanning, 1995)[17]. Open imagery is listening to the sub-consciousness. The person closes his eyes and waits to see what pops into his mind. This type of imagery is suitable to the research of resistance to change in life, to the exposure of emotions, to the discovery of personal images, and to the clarification of the possibilities. Planned imagery means the listening and conversing with the subconscious according to a predetermined script. This type of imagery is beneficial for the achievement of objectives, the improvement of the athletic ability, the acceleration of the healing of injuries, and the increase of the images. Guided imagery is the integration of open imagery and planned imagery. In the imagination some detailed occurrence is created, with the elimination of certain essential elements, and then the subconscious is allowed to fill them in. Guided imagery is suited to self-improvement, to mental care, to healing, and to control of pain. In the end, according to Fanning (1995), the person develops his own reason to explain why and how his imagination acts – a reason that best suits his outlook and explains how guided imagery works for him.

            Jung (in Shalev, 1987) created the term ‘archetype’, an innate universal symbol that is shared by many people. For instance, a cave is an archetypical image for a womb. Jung maintains that if a person believes that a ghost is attacking him, he will respond to it as he will respond to an armed burglar. Thus, Jung founded the idea that the only reality the person knows is his cognitive images, whether they are real or whether they are imaginary.

From time immemorial, many experiments have been conducted that have proved repetitively the relationships between the force of thought and imagination and the body. Modern medicine began to use the biofeedback method and thus acknowledged the power of thinking for controlling the different actions of the body. Biofeedback is a treatment method in which the patient is connected to machinery that measures different actions of his body. The patient sees on the monitor the different indices and learns to control them by his power of thought. Frequently, from the lack of awareness of the power of thoughts (and sometimes despite the awareness), we imagine scenarios that do not benefit us. A person who over the course of many years does not believe in his ability to change an existing situation will find it difficult to induce a change; for instance, to stop smoking, to lose weight, to heal from a certain illness, or to realize another dream.

Psycho-neuro-immunological medicine is a new realm in the science of medicine. This domain investigates the reciprocal relations between the ‘psycho’ (emotions and thoughts) and the ‘neuro’ (nervous system) and the immunological system (immunity). In other words, this field studies the impacts of the mind on the immune system. In situations in which we lack the mental powers to achieve something, guided imagery can support the process and create a new and optimistic understanding that will fulfill itself. Guided imagery entails the potential to fulfill dreams, the ability to influence the reality of our lives using the power of thought. It enables the simulation of healing influences, since the human mind responds identically to an event whether it occurred in reality and whether it was imaginary.

            Integrated medicine is medicine that incorporates methods of treatment from each one of the four dimensions that comprise the whole person. Guided imagery is a treatment method that enables training and practice of the intellectual dimension in each one of the 32 intelligences, to effect a change in approach, to shape a new belief, to change practices, and at the end of the process, to even change the personal reality (Lousky, 2005).

            Table number 7 presents the relationship between guided imagery and the intelligences; guided imagery for the training and practice and opening of the intellectual channel in each one of the 32 intelligences for the purpose of change (Lousky, 2005)

Treatment with the Integration of the Arts

Treatment with the integration of the arts is a treatment method characteristic of the emotional dimension. Through the integration of arts in treatment, it is possible to train and practice the ability to identify emotional lacks.

Treatment with art is emotional therapy conducted using visual means, when the art is an alternative means of communication that is not a complicated language (Case and Dalley, 1992). The artistic creation is a way of distancing the self from the feeling of powerlessness, of freeing the self from inhibitions. Art is a world without bounds that is constructed on symbols, images, and metaphors and receives its uniqueness in the encounter with reality.

One of the qualities of treatment with art is its ability to connect to the unconscious part of the person’s mind (Yiftach, 1992). Through art, the person comes in contact with his emotions using nonverbal means that allow images that represent the patient’s conflicts and troubles to be brought to his mind. Artistic expression increases the patient’s ability to participate in the sense of creation without needing a logical, causal, or circumstantial explanation. Every element in the creation reflects to some extent the sense of the self. A visual translation of the perception of the self is expressed in the elements of the page, in the proportions, in the wholeness, in the details or their emphasis, and in the degree of use of the means of expression. It is possible to use an examination of the strength of the line and color. Understanding the symbol and its personal meaning helps the patient release aggravating contents and achieve insight and a sense of greater control.

Integrated medicine is medicine that integrates treatment methods from all four dimensions that comprise the whole person. Treatment using arts integration is a treatment method that allows the practice and training of the emotional dimension in each one of the 32 intelligences for the closer encounter with the joy of life (Lousky, 2005).

Table number 8 describes the relationship between colors and the intelligences, the colors of the clothes the person wears, the color of the walls in the home or in the office, the food colors. All these are related to the intelligences. Adding, removing, and changing colors practice and train the life values according to the trend of change (Lousky, 2005).

Treatment through Acupuncture

            Acupuncture is a method of treatment typical of the physical dimension. Through acupuncture, it is possible to train and practice the ability to determine and realize objectives. In Chinese medicine, acupuncture is a primary method of treatment in every illness accompanied by pain. Acupuncture is a Chinese method in which very thin needles are inserted into different points of the body to stimulate certain points in the body. This stimulation causes a desired physiological response of the body and opens energetic obstructions in the body. Chinese medicine speaks of the different paths of energy in the body (meridians), through which the energy of life, called chi (the free will) flows and goes to each and every limb of the body, nurtures it, and protects it, as does the immune system (Pearle, 2000).

            When an obstruction is created in the flow of the chi, due to different reasons, then pain is created. If this is a sudden obstruction, then a sharp and very strong pain is created. If this is a chronic, gradual obstruction, then the pain will be less strong but longer in duration. The release of the obstructions is accomplished through acupuncture or pressure on the key points along the meridians (channels of energy). In the next stage, the energy resumes flow freely and harmoniously and the pain disappears. Pressure on or acupuncture of the point between the thumb and finger, for example, can release obstructions in the energetic flow to the brain and consequently it can significantly ease headaches, sinusitis, toothache, etc. The needles ease the pain, since the acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins (endorphin is a pain-relieving hormone). Therefore, Chinese acupuncture is considered effective in the treatment of backaches, migraines, headaches, menstrual pains, joint pains, etc.

The realm of the easement of pains using Chinese acupuncture has been a subject of increasing research in recent years (Levy, 2006)[18]. A comparative examination of a number of researches on the topic shows that Chinese acupuncture eases pains in up to 90% of the cases. The data of this research were collected in Germany from scores of participants. In the human body 400 points suited to acupuncture were identified. When a needle is inserted into a certain point of the body, the brain is stimulated to excrete endorphin. The acupuncture opens the energetic obstructions in the body and provides easement by opening the obstructions. According to Chinese medicine, there are twelve meridians in the body and these in essence are tracks of energy on the body upon which the acupuncture points are situated (Pearle, 2000). Acupuncture significantly eases different types of pain and saves the patient use of unnecessary drugs and thus the side effects that derive from the regular consumption of pain killers (Levy, 2006).

Integrated medicine is medicine that integrates treatment methods in each one of the four dimensions that comprise the whole person. The ability to determine and realize objectives is withheld form patients because of the body’s pains. Easing or avoiding the pain through acupuncture significantly helps improve the abilities (intelligences) in the physical dimension. In a situation of easement or good physical functioning, the person can determine and even realize objectives (Lousky, 2005).

8.5 The Circle of Therapists

          The circle of therapists is one of the five main characteristics of the format of integrated medicine. The circle of therapists is a description of the treatment process that the therapist must experience with the patient, sometimes through observation and sometimes through instruction for the patient. The circle of therapists is a genetic continuum, a human process, for the creation of a balanced reality that is performed in ten stages: ‘Look, see, investigate, understand, engrave, carve, refine, create, think, succeeded’ (The Book of Creation 6 48). The following paragraphs explain each one of the ten stages of treatment for the circle of therapists.

  1. Look – Look at the Problem

            Look at the problem, the mishap, the obstruction that impedes. It is like pain – prominent, since it needs its presence to be addressed. Sometimes it is hiding under different layers and excuses. Shift your attention and focus it on the task that you are seeking to achieve with the patient, through the notation of a schedule. Ask and identify what is missing (emotional dimension) and the desire (spiritual dimension) that arises from the lack. Look at the lack of attention, the lack of flattery, the lack of health or money. Look at the beliefs and the approach to life. Look at the way of feedback obtained from the behavior of the environment and its attitude to the patient. Look at the purpose of life and the goals for which the patient lives and rises every morning. Look at the results achieved, in his words (physical dimension).

  1. See – Do a presentation of the problem to see the cause and profit.

            From the observation, you see the mishaps, the problems, and the obstructions that impede. You see the cause, the seed, and the source of the problem. You see the root, how it began and when it began. You see the profit that the patient derives as a result of the mishaps. Through the presentation you see the attention and special reference that the environment gives the patient as a result of the problems it has. You see and discern the pain and the loss that is incurred as a result of the problems suffered. You see and discern the traits revealed as a result of the pain and mishaps and understand the lesson it teaches. The fear suffered teaches how to find the love inside, the pain teaches how to find the calm. The lack is to teach that happiness is not related to ‘how much’. The darkness is to teach to discern the light.

  1. Investigate – Study the bounds and limitations.

You begin with an investigation to examine whether what you have seen is indeed what is causing the delay. Investigate the four tasks of life – love, career, money, and health. Investigate the circles of life – interpersonal, dyadic, family, work, friends, your city, the country, the world. Investigate the life habits – the patient’s pace of life, his approach to life, his beliefs, his body language, nutrition, and nutrition habits. Remember that weakness should be prominent; it is apparent through pains in the body so as to be noticed. Ask a detailed questionnaire, using conversations and queries, dreams, palm of the hand, wisdom of the body, the zodiac and the influence of the stars, the centers of energy, and biofeedback. Research the beliefs, the principles, the conditions, the limitations and boundaries.

  1. Understand – Understand the Issue

            In this stage, the patient is about to understand something about himself. The understanding comes from action, meditation, guided imagery, acupuncture, contact, smells, colors, sounds, drawing, creative writing, dreams. The understanding comes through a book that he read, a film he saw, a conversation held with a friend, from a simple action he accustomed to performing (lousky medicines).

  1. Engrave – Determine laws of new games and make decisions.

            If you have understood something of the investigation and observation, in this stage, create new rules of play. Create a new approach to life, crystallize another outlook, and a belief that suits your present existence. Make a decision to change on the basis of new rules of play. Ask the patient to perform the regular actions in a different way, ask the patient to look at the desire to accept and the desire to receive in every action. Set new rules, have a correct intentions in every simple action.

  1. Carve – Incise inwards, in the past, in the future, and in the beliefs

            Ask the patient to carve and dig and study deeply, to look at the new habits and the new reality that is about to create as a result of the new laws and the decisions made. Carve in the past, present, and future, examine the impacts on the environment. Examine the tradition, the accumulated life experience, examine what happened in similar cases, examine if it is commensurate with the principles and limitations in the framework of which you and the patient act. Conduct guided imagery with the patient, allow him to look backwards, as if considerable time has passed after the performance, and examine whether he is satisfied with the decision he made.

  1. Refine – Combine everything to a treatment strategy and performance program

            Combine all that you have found into a treatment strategy, a practical treatment program to be performed. Determine for yourself a clear way and believe in the expected outcome. Infect the patient with your belief.

  1. Create – create a Commitment to your destiny

Create a relationship between the decision and the commitment to the patient’s destiny, create a commitment to the purpose of life and the lofty goal from which all the patient’s tasks and secondary objectives are derived.  Create commitment to the decision you made.

  1. Think – think about the motive and the following generations

            Look at your thoughts and the patient’s thoughts, look at the motive, at the patient’s motive behind the decision, look at the intention at the beginning of the action, look whether this is the desire to give or the desire to receive. Examine the implications of the program performance on the near and far future. Think with the patient on the coming generations and the entire world. If this is not well received, examine where the mishap is.

  1. Succeeded –

After the performance, examine whether a new and better reality was created for the patient. If this succeeded, then you acted correctly. If not, began the entire process anew or go back a number of steps, until the change of reality (Lousky, 2005).

The Treatment Process

            During the treatment process, you and the patient move from stage to stage, go back and forth, the patient understands as he goes along. You and the patient understand something big from something small, you understand the process in the body through the process in the mind, you discover how the behavior of an entire country is similar to the behavior of one person. You discern how the mind influences the body. You look at all 32 intelligences and examine them. Know that when the patient begins the process of observation and asks questions, the process of corruption is stopped and awaits the completion of the treatment process. The circle of therapists is organized so that it presents at both sides of every stage the complementary opposite side. Between the two sides of the circle appear the absolute contrasts (Lousky, 2005).

The order of the circle of therapists is the essence of the issue. Every treatment process, as every assessment process, requires the performance of all ten stages according to the determined order. Every human process, like every process of decision making, requires a transition of ten stages. Every one of the ten stages can be performed in a very short period of time (seconds) or in a very long period of time (years). Time is flexible and has no meaning. The entire process is what creates the meaning.  

Figure number 2 presents the circle of the treatments.

9. The Vision of Integrated Medicine

The integration of the scientific approach, according to which the person’s body is the center of empirical investigation, with the holistic approach, which sees the human body as a reflection of what happens in the person’s mind, is the vision of integrated medicine.

Scientific medicine focuses on the physical elements. Lousky medicine addresses the dimensions related to systems of relationships, frustrations, fears, human traits, life habits, thoughts, values, and beliefs, as a source of mishaps and illnesses. The vision of integrated medicine is an integration of the different approaches into one integrated treatment.

The body does not exist as one separate entity, the body reflects what happens in the mind. Every part of the body is linked to the thoughts, approaches, and beliefs, to the feelings and emotions, to the experiences and occurrences, and in each one there is the ability to receive so as to give. The lack of understanding of the action of the mechanism of ‘give receive’ is a cause of risk and illnesses. To ‘only receive’, like eating without stopping is like declaring a great love without its physical realization, like experiencing great fear without sharing, like absorbing a considerable amount of scholastic material without waiting to internalize it or convey it onwards. The inability to convey it onwards, the inability to move between the dimensions is a primary risk factor of illnesses. One of the discoveries of Carlos Castanada[19] is that the world that people can perceive is similar to an onion and our system of interpretation allows us to perceive only one layer of the onion (Meged, 1998). For the therapists with integrated medicine, all the layers of the onion are accessible and they also can be a part of our human heritage. The other parallels worlds are multidisciplinary, enabling to act and struggle therein; they are worlds in which the person can live and die, just like in the physical dimension.

In the vision of integrated medicine, the fear is removed through love. The therapist using integrated medicine begins every treatment with observation, so as to see at least one thing that he likes in the patient. This way releases the fear and ensures another system of relations between the therapist and the patient. Integrated medicine necessitates its practitioners to evince a great degree of openness and bravery, so as to achieve understanding and learning. ‘Doing and hearing’ – the action is what creates the ability to see, to hear, and even to create a new meaning.

The vision of integrated medicine sees, in the operating room of medical centers, a physician who has been trained in holistic methods and a holistic therapist who has basic medical training. The physician and the therapist will diagnose the patient and make a shared decision on the continuation of the process. When an examination diagnoses a physical problem, the course of treatment will be scientific and medical, and in parallel, or after this treatment, treatments from the holistic approach will be incorporated – personal therapy according to the dimension, an awareness workshop, a support group, or a development group. When there are no physical pathological findings, the course of treatment will be according to the holistic approach, and in parallel, there will be a continuation of tests and follow-up according to the scientific medical approach. This way ensures that the patient will be at the center. This way ensures the management of the patient’s health instead of the management of the illness.

In the vision of integrated medicine, in every medical center there will be a holy space. This holy space is a space sanctified to high awareness, clean and pure, enabling work in the four dimensions: in the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual dimensions. In the sacred space drinking and eating are not allowed, there will be calm music throughout the day, there will be lit candles, there will be pictures and colors that connect to the ‘home’, there will be smells of incense for purification, there will be stones, oils, and musical instruments. In the holy space there will be meditation every day, different activities, support groups for the patients and their families, awareness workshops, circles of love – circles of listening, circles of women, circle of men, circles for conflict and problem resolution. People will sit on the floor, on cushions that will allow the body to connect to the ground while the head rises, in the imagination, high to the sky. 

In the vision of integrated medicine, the therapist will diagnose the imbalance that appears in body or mind. He will search for the root of the problem, he will dig until he finds the reason, and he will look until the benefits that the patient obtains through the illness surface. The therapist will diagnose through a series of non-invasive instruments according to the holistic approach and the physician will further the diagnosis as required according to the scientific approach.

A sick person is a person who lives in a state of imbalance or sense of lack. A healthy person lives in balance or in a feeling that he does not lack anything and therefore he is happy with what he has. When the lack or sense of lack continues, the balance is disrupted, and pains, bodily aches appear, as an alarm and signal; this is an inner message to stop, to look, and to correct. An illness is a desire that is created as a result of the lack that is not fulfilled over time or a surplus that floods the ‘tool’ and cracks or breaks it. The root of the illness is the disruption of the communication between the body and the mind – a great hole in the soul that creates a small hole in the body. The seeds of the illness begin with fears that originate in the past, in the lack of acceptance of what exists that originates in the present, concern and anxiety of the future. When a strong pain appears, it is necessary to immediately treat the body, in any way, to provide a fast solution for the pain, but it is necessary to understand that the source of the problem of the failure with the body is found in the emotional, intellectual, or spiritual dimensions. In each one of the four dimensions, there can be an obstruction of the life energy that will cause an erosion of the equilibrium and a disruption of the harmony.

An illness is a collection of blocked intelligences or a blockage of one channel that creates a change in the natural combinations that enable normal and balanced action. Symptoms in the spiritual dimension and lack of desire to give are caused by feelings of loneliness, loss of way and purpose in life, fear of abandonment, sense of victimization, feeling of betrayal, guilt, and shame. This situation can cause phenomena and mishaps in the intellectual dimension, such as difficulties concentrating, worry, shame, confusion, forgetfulness, poor self-esteem, and difficulty and rigidity in decision making. This situation promotes the development of symptoms and mishaps in the emotional dimension, such as agitation and sadness, variable moods, depressions, fears, anger, sense of emotional lack, feelings of guilt, aggressiveness, feelings of being closed, over-eating, exaggerated smoking, drinking, and self-flagellation, communication problems, accusations of others, jealousy, and hatred. All these at the end of the process will cause in the physical dimension illnesses and mishaps such as tiredness, headaches, dryness in the mouth, nausea, vomiting, shaking, diarrhea, speech difficulties, teeth grinding, impotence, premature ejaculation, high blood pressure, heart problems, stomach pains, asthma, cancer, diabetes, loss of job, business failure, marriage failure, destroyed relations with the environment, deterioration to crime, drinking, smoking, drugs, and damage to the immune system.

In every case of mishap, pain, or illness in the physical world, the reason and the solution are found in the intelligences in the emotional dimension. In every case of illness in the emotional world, the reason and the solution are found in the intelligences in the intellectual dimension. For every problem that appears in the intellectual dimension, the reason and the solution are found in the intelligences in the spiritual dimension. When a problem appears in the spiritual world, its reason and solution are found in the intelligences in the spiritual dimension – since the spirit is created by the spirit.

In the vision of integrated medicine, every intentional human action is an act of an artist and an action of healing. Many people heal themselves using simple actions such as sleeping, laughter, crying, walking, nutrition, drawing, writing, play, films, contact, love, speech, sharing, listening, forgiveness, dreams, hugging, mediation, compassion. (All are lousky medicines.) In every simple human action there is the force of healing. Integrated medicine aspires to the balance between the desire to receive and the desire to give, so as to allow the force of life and the free will to flow in each one of the 32 intelligences. The therapist who was trained in integrated medicine will act through the treatment methods for which he was trained in the physical dimension (scientific medicine as well) and in the emotional dimension, intellectual dimension, and spiritual dimension (treatments basket) so as to open the blockage that has caused the illness. The opening of the blocked channels of energy will cause the correction of the genetic code that caused the appearance of the illness. The patient’s desire to correct, to find a destiny and purpose in life, and the belief in his ability to heal himself and being all anew are a basic principle for the empowerment of the life force and the medicine and the desired treatment ‘miracle’.

 

10. The Multiple Languages Theory: My Personal Experience

In this chapter, I seek to describe my experiences during two years in the framework of group work. My personal experiences include struggle, deliberations, and hesitations and were for me the ‘motive for change’. The ability to change allowed me to ascend and descend on the ‘health ladder’, in myself and outside of myself, and at the end of the process I found the ability to train and practice my weak intelligences through ‘lousky medicines’ in order to achieve a better state of health. Through the personal experience I describe, it is possible to see that the model of integrated medicine represents ‘natural’ human behavior.

My personal experience moves through experiences that addressed and healed every one of the dimensions in me through different healing languages. My self-investigation begins with the basic understanding that people speak different languages. I understood that I can speak through words and speech like I know and I can speak through looks and feelings, through body movements, I can also speak through meditation, guided imagery, drawing, or writing, through recording, sculpting, poetry, or dance. The surprising thing for me was to discover that drawing, too, speaks to me. The sculpture wants to shape itself and the drawing wants to be drawn. The walls in the room want to be looked at or want pictures to be hung and the pages want to be written or drawn. The thought wants to be realized in reality and the lack of movement of meditation wants to be present and to take its place. I understood that I can speak with people as with objects and pictures, I can speak with thoughts and feelings, with my imagination and with figures that arise from my imagination. Every object, feeling, and thought in the universe express itself in its unique language. The picture speaks in its language, water and flowers speak in their languages, feelings, symbols, and images speak in their language – and all understand.

In the beginning, it appears strange and odd, but over time, I understood that there is a system of relations between the living and the silent, between the silent and the speaking with the growing and with mother earth. All is related in a wonderful way and everyone speaks his language – different and multiple languages. What is surprising is to see people speak a little and only the look and body movements betray the profound meaning of the things they wanted to say.

I understood that every human action is art, and all art is a healing action, and healing must be an acquired educational process. This process is life. Trust in the process, said Professor MacKniff in the Arts Integration course I took with him. I dedicated myself entirely to the process and understood that my feelings at this moment will not be my feelings in another five minutes and they will be different in another two days. Language is unique and it is said in a way that does not repeat itself. Every sentence said is one-time, whether it is said through words, drawing, dance, feelings, thoughts, images, or music. Wiping color on paper is a sentence said by the painter to the paper upon which he works and the painting answers him in a unique way that only the painter understands and feels.

I understood that the translation of human action from language to language is a creative act that brings the person closer to another person in a wonderful way. I understood that every object under the sky speaks in its own language and I understood that it is possible to translate from language to language. An article will be translated to a drawing and a drawing is translated to movement and movement becomes music, and music becomes a play, and the play is translated to a song, and the song is translated to words, and then to a sculpture, to a dance, to laughter, to yelling, to a look. Everyone speaks about the same thing in different languages and only the intention of the language is what connects. The multiple languages are what explain the multiplicity of the truths in every realm. Every person has a unique ‘truth’ and it is the unique language that he speaks. Even when the person’s speaking language is understood, he still speaks in his unique ‘language’ using familiar words. Teachers will speak in different languages on the same topic; drivers will come to the same place in different ways.

In one of the processes, before I began to draw, I felt a very strong feeling to create, I did not know what I am about to create and I trusted in the process that I was to experience. My feelings were strong and clearly expressed something that only feelings know to say in their unique language. I began to paint, I held the paintbrush, I did not lead the lines or the colors, we worked together, the paintbrush and I were two dancers on the dance floor. The paintbrush led me and I let it lead and then I led and it let me lead, it was clear to me that I am now speaking in the paintbrush’s language and it speaks to me in my language. The paintbrush causes me great enjoyment and I caused it a dizziness of feelings. I felt its desire to be expressed and to realize itself as a paintbrush and I colored with it as a violinist plays his violin, like two friends who are sitting and conversing between them. All I knew and all that I did not know on colors and paintbrushes, on canvas and paper, on the different techniques, vanished as if a void were created – nothing, lacking purpose and without meaning. I wielded the paintbrush up and down, I performed pirouettes on the canvas, I was ‘myself’ without knowing or not knowing. We were totally us, I and the paintbrush and the drawing in an intimate conversation, we danced and made love. The colors, too, were good friends and made their contribution to the conversation. The colors were there for us, they smeared where I and the paintbrush lead. They observed and whispered among themselves and created connections and relations of color and I felt that I am found in a strange world of speaking objects. They talk between them, I talk with them and they with me, and this was a natural action. This was the work of an artist, I felt like an artist in all respects. I felt the wonderful sense of creation that does not repeat itself. Art became the knowledge that indeed this is how things are and I am not hallucinating or delusional. In these moments I knew that I am returning to my sanity, to the feeling of unity with myself and with ‘mother Earth’.

I understand the feeling of the artist who dances and jumps and speaks of the painting that he is painting through the paintbrush and the colors and the canvas and the water and the lights, and the walls that watch. All are in the conversation and in the dance and in harmony, and only what is inside understands the act of the artist. Only in this way are the great works created, only when one language is created between the picture and the artist. When every person will speak in his unique language out of the knowledge that the entire universe is listening and cooperating, as in a dance, as in an orchestra that plays different instruments in different languages, only then is there the harmony that we so desire. One unity.

Before I began to paint, I was hesitant, as if I did not want to work with the drawing, and amazingly, the painting answered me in the same vein – it did not really want to work with me. Slowly, slowly I saw in my resistance and in the obstacles an opening and possibility and instead of giving myself to my doubts in my ability to draw, I began to rely on the process and be certain that no matter what the outcome would be, I will learn something from the process. Without understanding what I am doing, I simply did and saw where this took me. The moment I trusted in the process and in the activity of here and now, the objections became milestones and showed the way. In these moments, I began to respect my objections. I began to draw, the painting was a unique personal expression, my personal attitude, a conversation that I am holding with the paper upon which I am drawing, a unique language that I have created. In this way, my drawing began to assume flesh and the painting itself began to draw itself. I drew it and it drew me and thus the conversation between us was held, thus we made love for a long period of time.

I understood that as long as I allow the disorder to be, thus a new order is created. In the beginning, it appears coerced and artificial and not natural, but as long as I held the picture and grasped, it steadily became something real and true for me. I declared again and again the things I believed, I left the framework to my unlimited imagination and preserved who I am. I understood that as long as I am bringing myself and my uniqueness I touch more and more and create a special texture of relations with my painting. I saw that as long as I am ‘myself’, I can be anything. I could be the painting or the color; I could be the paper upon which I worked. I was the walls and the lights and even the air-conditioning unit the warmed the body. With a considerable amount of surprise, I could look at the people painting beside me and be perfectly any one of them and to be them and fit perfectly into the group with whom I worked.

The place where I could take myself was like a show of many figures on one stage. Every character kept its special place. I preserved the special person inside of me, the paintbrush kept its uniqueness, and every color expressed itself and its unique personality. The watching walls, each one of the members of the group and the devices with which he works – they all retained their uniqueness and their unique way of expressing themselves. We were all on one stage; every one of us was deep in his unique role. The unique place of each one of the participants created contradictions, a conflict, and different desires. This fact is what enabled the presence of harmony and unity. When every one is found with himself and with his uniqueness, the ability to include grows. Suddenly it appears like an orchestra that plays a wonderful harmony and a conductor of the orchestra was the presence of each and every one.

Multiple languages created one language. Words are a language that can be translated to painting, then the painting can be translated to dancing, and again the dancing can be translated to song and then it is possible to express it in words. However, a song is not words and words are not a drawing, a dance, eating, or contact. Every human action has a language that addresses another dimension in human nature. Every language addressed me in a unique manner and different dimension. I can translate one language into another language in a way that only I feel through the different languages the different possibilities that I include. But I never can express in words dance, and dance can never express what the drawing or sculpture can express. I understood that I can describe in words my feelings from the work I did when I painted the painting, but this will never be like painting. Words are words and a painting is a painting, and although I can translate one language to another language, there is no substitute for experience in all the languages that Creation has given us.

Healing is possible through every language in every one of the dimensions, from the work in different artistic languages I can say that every language heals in a different and unique manner. Every language has the special place where it can do what another language cannot. The multiplicity of artistic activity (every human action is art) in its many varieties will allow different and dormant dimensions to be touched and awakened and allow them to be expressed through the different arts for the purpose of healing.

Rogers (1988) in her book The Creative Connection says, “When the arts are practiced for the purpose of self-healing or for treatment goals, we do not need to be bothered by the lovely appearance of the arts, by the grammar and writing ability, or by the harmony obtained from the song. We use the arts to release, to express ourselves, and to calm ourselves. We can touch our inner nature through the learning of the symbols and metaphorical messages. Arts speak to us, if only we let the messages reach us”. The advice of Rogers guided me throughout all my work; it was clear to me that it is not the quality of the painting, the song, that does the work for me but the ability to express myself without fear and not how I look but that is the resultant ‘artistic’ outcome. Sometimes I have found liquid, myself sweating from every possible place and sometimes there were a number of people in the group who came really close and expressed their love in different ways, including close hugs.

‘Trust the process’ is wonderful advice that was repeated by Professor Sean McKniff, time after time. Had I not had faith in the process, I would not have been bale to integrate and understand the entire process. There were moments where there was the question ‘Where does it take us?’ and I heard it say, ‘Health is walking after the promise’.

Human information doubles itself every two years; only DNA includes everything. Most of the information that the person accumulates during his personal life is found in the subconscious. Processes with the arts can expose the information found in the subconscious. This information wants to get out. Sometimes it yells ‘let me out’. Holistic methods of treatment that incorporate the arts and experiences in the arts reveal what lies behind the behavior. They reveal the cause and what lies behind the thought. The arts do not engage in a symptom, which is, as known, seen here and now (physical dimension). Therefore, work in the arts does not always show results that can be brought to the consciousness here and now.

The subconscious is like a shadow, like the painting and the dance, the movement and the other arts (emotional dimension). They are willing to be revealed and discovered but only from their place of hiding. They play the game that life has promised. The subconscious is not willing to take life seriously but it is willing to play seriously. The subconscious wants to play, it hides behind the pictures, the sculptures, the dance, the movement, the writing, the drama. It wants to play. If you, as a therapist or teacher, like to play, it is possible that everything that you need to know on your patient will be revealed to you through the playing.

Before the beginning of the course in the arts directed by Professor Mitchell, he said with simplicity, “we go to play together”. I think that this is the most precise title that I have heard in relation to holistic health. In my opinion, too, therapy through the arts, therapy through guided imagery, acupuncture, and meditation should be played seriously. In this playing, the human consciousness can win. Professor Mitchell said a sentence that was inscribed deeply into my consciousness: “A teacher does not say what to do and what not to do; a teacher should show you how to be aware, the awareness will tell you what to do.”

 

11. Questionnaire for the Assessment of the 32 Intelligences

This part of the research presents a description of the process of the construction of the questionnaire for the measurement of the 32 intelligences, including the choice of questions, validation of the questionnaire, and examination of its reliability. The questionnaire includes 320 statements, ten statements for every one of the 32 intelligences.

11.1 The Goal of the Questionnaire

            The questionnaire is constructed for the purpose of the assessment of the research subject’s level of ability of the 32 intelligences. The goal of the measurement is to identify the strong abilities and strengthen them, to identify the weak abilities that constitute a threat and a danger, and to correct and improve them. At the end of the process, the task is to identify the sources of imbalance so as to eliminate them. The map of intelligences will indicate the ranking of abilities in all areas of life.

The Stages of Assessment of the 32 Intelligences

  1. Identification and assessment of what is missing in the emotional realm, using the ten intelligences in the emotional realm.
  2. Identification of the willpower and its direction, using the three intelligences in the spiritual dimension.
  3. Identification and assessment of intellectual abilities, ability to change approaches and beliefs, using seven intelligences in the intellectual dimension.
  4. Identification and assessment of physical abilities, achievement and realization of objectives, using twelve intelligences in the physical dimension.

Intelligences Linked to Different Aspects of Life

            The world according to The Book of Creation is divided into 32 paths, every channel includes a variety of variables that suit the frequency of the path. Treatment of one of the variables beneficially influences the other variables in the same path.

            All the variables that suit the frequency of the path are the human potential of the path and it is called ‘intelligence’ or in the language of The Book of Creation, the paths of the “wonderful paths of wisdom”. The intelligences can be corrected, strengthened, and improved, like a muscle can be built up, according to free will.

            The treatment is performed using ‘Lousky medicines’, which are simple human actions aimed at receiving or giving, such as hugging, sleeping, showering, walking, smiling, laughing, drinking, taking trips, shopping, going to the beach, and through treatment techniques such as massage, healing, acupuncture, Bach flowers, healing plants, Sujok, psychotherapy, arts, dreams, psychodrama, meditation, guided imagery, creation cards, song, story, process, experience journey, and nutrition. The mapping of the variables according to intelligences will allow an approach for the purpose of assessment, treatment, improvement, maintenance, and correction.

For every human behavior, every process, and every simple human action it is possible to define a ranked profile of intelligences that includes all 32 intelligences. Every person has a unique profile of intelligences that shapes his personality and it is his personality ‘structure’. Every person can discover and stimulate, train and practice intelligences, and adjust them to the new structure of personality that he seeks to acquire for himself. The combinations that the person brings are one-time and loyally express his unique personality ‘structure’.

The questionnaire for the measurement of the intelligences will not include all the variety of possibilities for the examination of the profile of intelligences. The questionnaire is limited to the examination of questions and to providing answers to them. The test examines the subject’s ability to provide answers to questions that pertain to the intelligences, without addressing all the other aspects of the intelligences. Hence, the results obtained cannot present a complete picture of the profile of intelligences in the research subject and it is necessary to complete the picture using additional tests.

 

11.2 The Process of the Construction of the Questionnaire

Stage 1: Stage of the Construction of the Questions and Determination of the Scale of Responses

            This stage took a long time and many people participated in it. In this stage, for each one of the 32 intelligences ten statements that addressed the examined intelligence were phrased.

  1. First, all the statements were phrased positively (without reversed questions). The research subject was asked to express the degree to which he agrees with each one of the statements on the scale of agreement of three levels (yes, no, don’t know).
  2. This questionnaire was completed by 49 subjects, all of whom were my patients or students in the college where I teach. After every test, the validity of the statements was examined and discussions were held in the groups of students who learn psychotherapy in regards to the collection and adjustment of the statements. During the process, changes were made in the phrasing of the statements according to the findings.
  3. The process of the collection of the questions led me to the conclusion that the scale of agreement should be extended to five levels so as to obtain a greater difference of the scale of responses. 1=definitely do not agree, 2=do not agree, 3=agree to a certain extent, 4=agree, 5=agree definitely. According to this questionnaire, another fifteen subjects were examined. It was found that many subjects tend to answer the third question on the scale as a regular preferred possibility, ‘agree to a certain degree’. Therefore, it was decided to remove this possibility from the scale of agreement and the scale was limited to a scale of only four levels: 1=definitely do not agree, 2=do not agree, 3=agree, 4=agree definitely.
  4. Then, for half the statements the phrasing was reversed into negative phrasing. At the end of every process, the questionnaire was comprised of direct questions, feedback questions, and indirect questions. Every question was examined for ten patients. Every question was learned and evaluated as a question pointing to one of the aspects that indicates weakness or strength in the examined intelligence. The classification, formulation, and adjustment of the questions took, as aforementioned, a considerable amount of time. In the end, 320 questions were chosen from hundreds of statements collected in the beginning of the process.

Examples of direct statements:

  1. I believe that the world is an empty space that is filled with my will.
  2. I believe that I can shape my own life.
  3. In life I do only what I want.

Examples of projection statements:

  1. People are aware of their successes and failures.
  2. People are always willing to do good deeds.
  3. When people bless, they intend this.

Examples of indirect statements:

  1. In every action there is a motive and intent and they are the seed from which the result grows.
  2. Every person, as such, deserves respect and freedom.
  3. Marriage and family life are not a guarantee of the joy of life.

Sometimes it becomes clear that the response to a direct statement will be on level 4 (definitely agree) and for an indirect statement or parallel projection statement there is a response of 2 (don’t agree). This situation obligates future reference of the therapist to the intelligence using additional statements for the purpose of exact assessment. Statements of projection expose the subject to the attitude of another person that reflects what he saw. The personal attitude reflects to a considerable extent what he sees or wants to see. Indirect statements sometimes help the subject avoid conflict with a direct statement and it is easier for him to reveal the personal truth through indirect statement.

The following is an example of the first twenty statements of the questionnaire before the reversal of the questions.

Instructions for Filling out the Questionnaire

            The following is the instructions for filing out the subject’s degree of agreement for each one of the 32 statements.

Read the statements and express the degree to which you agree with each one of them on a scale of agreement from 1 to 4.

When you read the statement, something pops into mind – this is your answer.

Do not bring your past to the statements and do not think about the future and how you want it to be.

Answer the questions from the place where you are at present, in the here and now.

Answer

1

Definitely do not agree

2

Don’t agree

3

Agree

4

Definitely agree

 

Stage 2: Validation of the Questionnaire

            After the selection of the 320 statements, work with additional dozens of subjects and with a large number of therapists, rabbis, and academics was conducted to examine the suitability of the statements to the intelligences, through the reference to phrasing, to the length of every statement, and to the simplicity of understanding of every statement.

            In addition, the process of the validation of the questionnaire included obtaining the opinion of a number of experts from the field of psychology. The experts who took part in the validation of the questionnaire were:

  • Dr. Oded Erlich, a senior consultant for measurement and evaluation
  • Professor Akiva Fradkin (Ph.D.)
  • Professor Gabi Kovacs (Ph.D. psychology, L.L.B. law)
  • Professor Gershon Tenenbaum, Department of Educational Psychology and Learning Systems, Florida State University
Content Validity

          We examined whether each one of the 320 statements indeed expresses what it intends to examine; in other words, does it examine the situation of the examined intelligence. During the content validity many statements were changed, sometimes the change was only in one word and sometimes the entire sentence was changed. The following examples present changes of statements.

Original statement:

All my successes and failures are not related to other people.

Corrected statement:

My successes and failures are not related to other people.

Original statement:

Generally I live to help others live.

Corrected statement:

The desire to give is a lofty goal and purpose in life.

Original statement:

I know many people who have lots of money.

Corrected statement:

I like money and all that money can give.

Relevance of the statements: The relevance of the statements to the researched subject, namely to the intelligence, was examined.

Lack of overlap: Every statement was phrased so that it addresses a different aspect of intelligence, with no overlap in the statement with the other statements on the same intelligence.

Fulfillment: The statements cover most of the aspects of the researched topic.

Psychological biases: Considerable attention was devoted to possible psychological biases on the level of the questionnaire and in every statement individually.

Halo effect: Some of the subjects had a tendency to generalize the response to one statement to the sequential responses. Some of the subjects entered into a negative situation from the beginning and then answered all the statements negatively, while others were positive and responded to all the statements positively. The solution we adopted was ‘direction change’, in other words, for one question an answer of yes is positive, while for another question, an answer of yes is negative. (Is Yossi smart? Yes (positive) Does Yossi lack understanding? Yes (negative).)

Social desirability: The subjects’ lack of desire to admit behaviors or opinions that are not accepted, primarily in sensitive topics (such as lies, God, and fate), was found. “Do you believe in God? When I bless, I mean it.” The solution we adopted was projection/feedback statements, “When people bless, they do not mean it.”

Preference of a direction: The tendency of some of the research subjects was to prefer a certain direction in their responses. Some agreed with everything. Others answered that they did not agree for everything. Some subjects always tended to respond with a degree of moderate agreement. Our solution was to change the direction of half of the statements; in other words, we changed their phrasing from a positive phrasing to a negative phrasing.

Multidimensionality: We avoided including two responses or two statements in the same statement (Are you rich and happy?)

Presentation of one side as normative: No one attitude or one side of a dilemma was presented as accepted and agreed-upon by the majority. The statements were phrased objectively (most of the population thinks this or that, do you agree?)

Presentation of one side of the coin: We did not emphasize one side of a dilemma more than another side.

Concepts of emotional value: We avoided using emotionally charged and meaningful words (For instance: terrorist, Holocaust, occupation, etc.) Thus the subjects will respond in a matter-of-fact manner and not from an emotional mindset.

Ambiguous phrasing: We avoided using ambiguous phrasing and phrasing that requires previous knowledge or professional knowledge. For instance, do you favor the use of Rorschach tests as acceptance tests?

Words with multiple meanings: We avoided using words that have dual meaning, since every person may have a different interpretation.

Phrasing negatively: We avoided using negative phrasing: Can you not say that you are not bisexual?

Balance: We created balance between the alternatives to the possible responses, so as not to tilt the scales in any direction.

Stage 3: Preparation of the Computerized Questionnaire

  • The questionnaire was inserted in to the electronic spreadsheet Excel.
  • A process of the random mixing of the 320 statements was performed, when the affiliation of each aspect to its intelligence was marked. The goal of mixing the statements is to distribute them so that for no intelligence there will be a sequence of statements.
  • A program was written in the Visual Basic language that allows, along with the Excel electronic spreadsheet:
  • The subject to respond to the questionnaire while typing his degree of agreement for each one of the 320 statements.
  • After the subject has finished answering the questionnaire:
  • The program restores the original order of the statements so that the statements of each intelligence are again in sequential order.
  • The program reverses the degree of agreement for the half of the statements that are asked in the negative.
  • The program calculates an overall average score for every subject in each one of the 32 intelligences and builds a graph of the results for each subject.
  • The program collects in a separate spreadsheet the responses of all the subjects for the purpose of the performance of statistical processing and analyses.

Stage 4: Examination of the Questionnaire Reliability

Sample of Research Subjects

            In the framework of my job in a holistic college in Tel Aviv, I distributed the final questionnaire with a ranking of four stages to twenty students, ten of whom volunteered to distribute it to a random number of subjects in their immediate environments. In this way, a group of ninety research subjects was collected for the purpose of the reliability examination. The subjects filled out the questionnaire directly on the computer or on a printed-out questionnaire, for which the results were inputted into the computer. The average time it took to fill out the questionnaire is 40 minutes.

            The research subjects’ willingness to respond to the questionnaire was high because of the considerable curiosity on the topic of intelligence tests. Every one of the subjects received the results of his test in a personal conversation in which the relationship between his attitudes according to the questionnaire and the attitudes he presented in a free conversation was examined. It should be noted that for almost all the subjects there was a high correlation that indicated the validity of the questionnaire. Only for a small number of questions did the subjects hide behind attitudes that fit the environment’s expectations of them.

Description of the Sample

The research sample included, as aforementioned, 90 research subjects.

  • Gender: 76.7% of women, 23.3% men.
  • Age: The subjects range in age from 16 to 71, when 21.2% are up to 25, 35.6% are 25 to 35, 32.1% are 36-50, and 11.1% are older than 50.
  • Family status: 35.6% of the subjects are married, 15.6% are divorced, and 48.9% are single.
  • Country of birth: 82.2% of the subjects were born in Israel, the rest came from Europe, Asia, and Africa.
  • Place of residence: 37.7% live in Tel Aviv, 17.3% live in the Central Region, and the rest, 45.0%, live in different places in Israel, ranging from Carmiel in the North Region to the Beeri Kibbutz in the South Region.
  • Education: 43.3% of the subjects have a high school education, 27.8% have a post-high school education that includes certification studies (such as nursing, teaching, etc.), and 28.9% hold an undergraduate degree or higher degree.
  • Level of income: 3.4% stated they have a low income, 88.8% reported an average income, and 7.8% declared a high income.
  • Health situation: 90.0% of the subjects declared that they are healthy and only 10.0% noted that they suffer from different illnesses.

Examination of the Reliability of 32 Intelligences Questionnaires

For each one of the 32 intelligences reliability analysis was performed that included the calculation of the correlation between the score of every statement and the subject’s overall score in intelligence (without the score on the statement). Statements, for which the correlation between them and the subject’s overall score (without the score of the statement) was lower than 0.10, were removed from the questionnaire. After these statements were removed, the reliability coefficient of Cronbach’s alpha was calculated for each one of the 32 intelligences.

Table number 12 presents the a reliability coefficient of each one of the 32 intelligences questionnaires and the statements that were removed from the questionnaire. (Note: the removal of questions from the questionnaire is only for the purpose of this research and in the future it will be necessary to re-examine the degree of reliability for additional samples.)

11.3 Empirical Examination of the Questionnaire

The treatment process according to the Lousky method to the construction of the questionnaire began with an interview of the patient, collection of his personal background data, and conversation for impression and assessment of the patient’s problems. Following the construction of the questionnaire, it was integrated as an integral and important part in the processes of assessment and treatment. The subject’s results for the questionnaire, in other words, the scores he received in each one of the 32 intelligences, allow the strong abilities to be identified and strengthened, the weak points, which constitute a threat and risk, to be identified and corrected and improved. At the end of the process, the task is to identity sources of imbalance so as to eliminate them. Since the questionnaire was prepared, strong and less strong intelligences have been diagnosed among 54 of my and my students’ patients. On the basis of the assessments, treatments have been conducted with great success.

The following example, example 1, describes the use of the questionnaire. Moshe (an alias) is a 28 year old man. He was born in Israel, he is married, and he is the father of a two year old. He lives in the Central Region in Israel. He has a complete high school education and an average income. He suffers from general weakness, strong stomach pains, diarrhea, and sleeplessness. He has never been hospitalized. He does not have a profession and has been unemployed for about a month. Moshe came to my clinic for a series of treatments.

In the first session Moshe had the need to talk and the following are a number of key sentences he said.

  • “I don’t know at all who I am, I also don’t know where I am taking my life.”
  • “I do not like all the bosses with whom I worked, they only know to tell me what to do.”
  • “My wife, too, tells me what to do, I don’t like being told what to do.”
  • “I am confused, I don’t know to say what I want and in essence I am not interested in anything.”
  • “I have strong headaches every time I need to do a job that I don’t like.”
  • “My mouth is always dry and it is hard for me to talk, once I fainted from dehydration.”

Moshe spoke also while stuttering, without order in his statements. He was very emotional, as if he is fighting with himself.

In his second meeting, after a conversation for the purpose of obtaining additional details, the patient responded to the statements questionnaire and completed the entire questionnaire. Figure number 3 presents the patient’s map of intelligences – the results he obtained in each one of the 32 intelligences.

According to the figure, it is possible to see that the patient has high abilities in the intelligences of cell, heart, taste, gut, unity, freedom, beginning, Self-Governance, seed, richness, life, and free will. He has low levels of intelligences in way, touch, deed, speech, smell, thought, charm, and wisdom. These results were presented to the patient, a conversation was held with him, and we saw the relationship between the key sentences (intellectual dimension) and the areas of pain in the body (physical dimension) and the results of weak intelligences. We talked about the strong intelligences through which it is possible to perform correction and the desired change. The conversation itself constituted an important part in the beginning of the treatment in which the patient discovers his weaknesses and strengths. The results of the test show that in each one of the dimensions (physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual) there are both weak intelligences and strong intelligences. There is no finding that shows that there is a problem in any certain dimension.

According to the map of the intelligences, the weakest intelligence diagnosed was ‘way’. In this intelligence, the distribution of the patient’s responses was: three responses of ‘definitely don’t agree’ and four responses of ‘don’t agree’, for a total of seven negative responses. In addition, the patient had two responses of ‘agree’ and only one response of ‘definitely agree’. The mean score is thus 2.1. According to the Book of Creation, every intelligence is linked to a part of the body. The stomach is linked to the intelligence of ‘way’. The diarrhea and stomachaches that the patient suffers reinforced the results of the map of the intelligences, since the weakest and hurting intelligence is the intelligence of ‘way’.

For the therapist and patient, the conversation on and discussion of the results contributed to the understanding that the root of the problem indeed is found in the intelligence of ‘way’. Conversation and extension of the knowledge on the nature of the intelligence of ‘way’ led to the making of decisions on the continuation of the treatment.

In this case, the therapist decided to begin treatment using guided imagery with the goal of allowing the patient to see himself in a new situation. The new situation will also allow all the weak intelligences discovered in the examination to be treated. During the guided imagery the patient saw himself work in a job that reflects his unique way, a job that reflects his free will, a job in which he will have professional and personal freedom, a job in which he will not be tricked or exploited, where he can address things in-depth and involve the immediate environment in his successes. Guided imagery will reinforce the self-worth and belief in himself and his way.

Immediately after the end of the work with guided imagery, the therapist asked the patient to write objectives for the next nine years and then the secondary goals and the immediate actions that should be undertaken to create a new reality. The determination of objectives for the continuation of life allowed the patient to focus the efforts through the strong intelligences to reinforce the weak intelligences so as to change the reality.

Additional weak intelligences indicated by the map of the intelligences were intelligence of speech, linked to the minimal amount of liquids in the body, and intelligence of smell, linked to the spleen and to a weak immune system. Therefore, the therapist asked the patient to drink at least three liters of water a day and recommended Bach flowers extract to boost the immune system.

Example 2 presents a combination of treatment techniques of integrated medicine. Yossi (alias) is a 43 year old man. He was born in Poland, he is married, and he is the father of two children. He lives in the Central Region in Israel. He has an academic education, an undergraduate degree, and has a low level of income (as he reports). His profession is computers. He suffers from a liver infection, general weakness, and eye pains. He has not been hospitalized. Yossi came to the clinic for a series of treatments.

A liver infection is characterized by weakness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and low fever, after which the urine is dark, jaundice appears, and the liver is enlarged. In the assessment of the map of intelligences and in the investigation, it was found that the significantly weak intelligence in regards to the others is the intelligence of sight (ה). This intelligence received a mean of 1.7 and for all four of the possibilities the patient answered ‘don’t agree’ or ‘definitely don’t agree’.

According to the Book of Creation, there is a relationship between intelligence of sight and the functionings of the liver. This finding reinforces the assessment of scientific medicine and the results of the map of intelligences. This example concretizes the relationship between the different variables with a frequency that accords with the ‘ה path’ – intelligence of sight. According to integrated medicine, treatment of one of the variables in the ‘ה path’ will favorably influence the other variables in the same path.

The following variables suit the frequency of the intelligence of vision – ‘ה path’:

  • Sight in the four dimensions: visual sight ability, spatial, supra-sensory, imaginary, multidimensional, illumination, mirror, awe and teaching, blindness, and partial blindness.
  • Inner body part: Liver and the different liver functionings, filtering and classification, desire to receive, lust, avarice, vengeance, jealousy.
  • Time: The Hebrew month of Nissan and the symbolism of the holidays in this month.
  • Sign: Aries and the qualities represented by it, selfish, temperamental, leader, and prominent.
  • Sound: Do in the notes octave.
  • Color: Red.
  • Element: Fire. Symbolizes rapid and sharp movement.
  • Nutrition: Unbalanced intelligence indicates unhealthy nutrition lacking in water.
  • Meridian: BL 18/ UB18*, which is found under T9, 1.5 tsun lateral.
  • Bach Flowers: Red chestnut.
  • Oil: Frankincense, myrtle, lemon melissa.

In this case, the therapist decided to employ treatment with different means (some or all, according to the progression in the stages of the circle of therapists). He recommended:

  • To change the eating habits to improve the ability of the desire to give.
  • To drive, walk, and take trips to new and old places to strengthen the sense of sight.
  • To eat cooked food without oils and transition to whole rice.
  • To drink three liters of water a day.
  • To avoid alcoholic drinks and milk products will favorably influence the better functioning of the liver.
  • To change habits of listening of music and make the transition to soft and calm music in which there is no do sound is aimed at influencing the responsiveness that characterizes the Aries sign.
  • To undergo treatment in the energetic channel – meridian BL18 using acupuncture, massage, healing, and Sujok.
  • To use lemon melissa oil in massage and myrtle oil for the home.
  • To drink four drop a day of Back flower extract – red chestnut.
  • To avoid wearing the color red and prefer light colors.
  • To participate in development and guided imagery groups.

12. The Research Limitations

The research study did not examine the following questions:

  1. Is the format of integrated medicine proposed in the research more effective than other formats for the health centers or for the therapists?
  2. Does the format of integrated medicine benefit patients to some extent in regards to other methods?
  3. To what extent are the lousky medicines proposed in the research effective like chemical medicines?
  4. Does the intelligences questionnaire encompass all human intelligences?

 

13. Recommendations for Future Research

            First and foremost, it is recommended to repeat the present research on a larger sample. This will enable the construction of a research constellation in which it will be possible to examine differences between levels/categories of each one of the background variables and interactions between the levels/categories in each one of the four dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and in each one of the 32 intelligences.

            In addition, the goal of the recommended additional research is to respond to the following questions:

  • Is there a relationship between intelligences and types of illnesses?
  • Is there a relationship between intelligences and types of population and different cultures? 
  • Is there a relationship between intelligences and subjects that people choose?
  • Is there a relationship between intelligences and dyadic suitability?
  • Is it possible to predict ability to succeed in certain professions according to the profile of intelligences?
  • Is it possible to improve the ability to cope with the illness through the training of intelligences?
  • Is it possible to increase the ability to prevent the recurrence of an illness through the training of intelligences?
  • Is it possible to improve the ability to self-heal from an illness by the training and correction of intelligences?
  • Is it possible to improve the ability to prevent an illness through the training of intelligences?
  • Can any frequency describe a thought and the reality that the thought creates through the frequency itself?

 

14. Research Summary

          The research presents an innovative approach to integrated medicine that is based on a unique format through 32 intelligences according to the Book of Creation. The research included the definition of the 32 intelligences and the construction of a questionnaire for the evaluation of the intelligences.

            Integrated medicine is a treatment approach that combines different treatment methods from the realm of complementary medicine and scientific medicine into one integrated treatment in order to allow the patient to look at the root of the problem and perform the inner change required to better cope with the illness, prevent it, and self-heal.

            The source of the pattern of integrated medicine is, as aforementioned, the Book of Creation, which is ascribed to the Patriarch Abraham. For many the Book of Creation is absolute truth. Life, according to Book of Creation, is a pattern of 32 paths, 32 ways of life, 32 intelligences, 32 life values. When we say ‘life values’ we mean the values of life of the 32 intelligences. The 32 life values are the expression of the intellectual dimension of the 32 intelligences. Intelligence includes a world of possibilities interrelated on a defined frequency. In this research study the intelligence tests are based only the life values of the intelligences.

            The contribution of this research lies in the presentation of the unique format of integrated medicine and the construction of an instrument for the measurement of the subject’s level in each one of the 32 intelligences, through which medical centers, therapists, and teachers can create their unique treatment admixture that is personally adjusted to every patient.

            Integrated medicine is medicine that integrates treatment methods from different worlds and dimensions, body and mind – an integration of scientific medicine, namely medicines and operations, alongside holistic treatment methods, such as acupuncture, movement, massage, and nutrition; emotional treatment methods such as art therapy, healing, and psychodrama; intellectual treatment methods such as guided imagery, conversation, and querying; spiritual treatment methods such as meditation, feedback, forgiveness, and prayer. Integrated medicine provides a solution to the different aspects of the person’s body and mind and sees all his parts and dimensions as merging cohesively into one whole unit.

            There are five main characteristics of the creation of a format and framework for integrated medicine through the 32 intelligences for medical centers and therapists: scale (ladder) of health, motive to change, lousky medicines, ‘basket’ of treatments, and circle of therapists. The five main characteristics of the result of the format of the 32 paths (intelligences) as directed by the Book of Creation: the one – the whole is divided into two parts – numbers and letters (male and female), which are the desire to give and the desire to receive (the motive of change). The numbers (numbers from 1 to 10) are the ten intelligences in the emotional dimension, the letters are divided into three parts: three intelligences in the spiritual dimension (the Hebrew letters of א מ ש), seven intelligences in the intellectual dimension (the Hebrew letters: ב ג ד כ פ ר ת), twelve intelligences in the physical dimension (Hebrew letters: ה ו ז ח ט י ל נ ס ע צ ק). Thus, the Book of Creation creates four parts from the whole (ladder of health, with four dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical). Each one of the 32 intelligences is a part of the whole and behaves like the whole. Every intelligence divides into two parts – male and female, and every intelligence has four dimensions. Every intelligence can be exercised and trained (like a muscle) through simple intentional human actions, through treatments, and group work. The practice of intelligences allows movement from dimension to dimension on the health scale for the purpose of balance and opening of channels.

The Main Characteristics of Integrated Medicine

            The scale (ladder) of health has four dimensions and describes the person’s changing needs, the abilities that the person can develop in every dimension, and the need to move between the dimensions for the purpose of balance. Complete health is possible through balance among the different needs in every one of the four dimensions. The motive for change describes the contrasts that are fixed in the world of every person and that create movement and change. The temporary imbalance that is created by the encounter between good and evil, dark and light, certainty and uncertainty, fear and love, are an expression of the movement between the desire to receive and the desire to give and they are the basis of change and movement in the scale of health. Movement up or down on the ladder of health is possible through internal change, which originates in the change of the form of the desire to receive to the desire to give and the reverse. Lousky medicines are simple human actions (that enable the practice and training of the intelligences) such as sleeping, showering, positive thinking, a good deed a day, hugging, kissing, sexual relations, walking, going to a new place. In each one of the simple actions there is the desire to give and the desire to receive. The direction, given by the patient for each one of the simple actions, allows internal change and creates movement up or down on the health scale. The treatment basket includes treatment methods according to dimensions such as meditation (spiritual dimension), guided imagery (intellectual dimension), integration of arts (emotional dimension), acupuncture (physical dimension). Every treatment method has a natural place in one of the dimensions and it is the treatment method that is suited for the treatment in that dimension. There are many treatment methods that supply the different needs in each one of the dimensions so that every therapist and every medical center can choose from the abundance of the methods what is suited for him and for his patients. Integrated medicine necessitates the choice of treatments according to dimensions, limitations, and needs of the patient population. The circle of therapists is a treatment process of ten stages; this is a genetic continuum for the change of reality. The therapist must act according to the changes to obtain a correct outcome. There is no meaning to the time that the therapist must act in each one of the stages. Sometimes the transition from stage to stage is very rapid (seconds) while sometimes it is very long (years). Sometimes the progress is sequential, while sometime it is necessary to go backwards and then forwards and then backwards again, all according to what is necessary and to the feedback obtained from the treatment process.

            The integration of the tools in integrated medicine is the key to the success of the treatment. Every one of the five characteristics of integrated medicine is like a body limb; the integrated action among the five limbs allows balanced and whole movement.

            The vision of integrated medicine is the integration between the scientific approach and the holistic approach. According to the vision, in the operating room of the medical centers there will be a physician who is trained in the holistic methods and a holistic therapist who has received basic scientific medical training. The physician and the therapist will assess the patient and will reach a joint decision on the continuation of the process. When in the examination a physical problem is diagnosed, the course of the treatment will be scientific and medical and in parallel or after the treatment holistic treatments will be incorporated. When there are no physical pathological findings, the course of the treatment will be holistic and in parallel there will be medical checkups and scientific follow-up. The holistic treatment will include work in the holy space, personalized treatments, work in development groups, and support groups for the patients and their families. This way ensures the integration of the different approaches so that the patient will be in the center. The objective is the management of the patient’s health instead of the management of the illness.

            To measure the subject’s level in each one of the 32 intelligences a questionnaire was constructed. The purpose of the measurement is to identify the strong abilities and reinforce them, to identify the weak abilities that constitute a threat and risk and correct and improve them. At the end of the process, the task is to identify the sources of imbalance so as to eliminate them. The map of intelligences will indicate a hierarchy of abilities in all areas of life.

            To measure the subject’s level in each one of the 32 intelligences, a questionnaire of 320 statements was constructed. The process of the construction, validation, and empirical examination of the questionnaire was both long and fascinating. After the selection of the 320 statements, work with additional dozens of subjects and with a large number of therapists, rabbis, and academics was conducted to examine the suitability of the statements to the intelligences, through the reference to phrasing, to the length of every statement, and to the simplicity of understanding of every statement.

            In addition, the process of the validation of the questionnaire included obtaining the opinion of a number of experts from the field of psychology. The reliability of the questionnaire was examined for a sample of 90 subjects. For each one of the 32 intelligences reliability analysis was performed, including the calculation of the correlation between the score of every statement and the overall score of the research participant in the intelligence (without the score of the statement). Statements that had a correlation with the subject’s overall score (without the statement score) lower than 0.1 were removed from the questionnaire. After the questionnaire was prepared, intelligences were examined and diagnosed among the patients and on the basis of the diagnoses many treatments were conducted successfully.

פרק ראשון

מ”א  בשלשים ושתים נתיבות פליאות חכמה חקק יה יהוה צבאות אלהי ישראל אלהים חיים אל שדיי רם ונשא שוכן עד מרום וקדוש שמו.

וברא את עולמו בשלשה ספרים בספר וספר וספור. עשר ספירות בלימה ועשרים ושתים אותיות יסוד:

מ”ב  עשר ספירות כמספר עשר אצבעות חמש כנגד חמש וברית יחיד מכוונת באמצע כמלת הלשון בפה וכמלת המעור:

מ”ג  עשר ספירות בלימה עשר ולא תשע עשר ולא אחד עשר הבן בחכמה וחקור בבינה בחון בהם וחקור מהם דע וחשוב וצור והעמד דבר על בוריו והשב יוצר על מכונו כי הוא יוצר ובורא לבדו ואין זולתו ומדתו עשר ואין להם סוף:

מ”ד  עשר ספירות בלימה בלום לבך מלהרהר בלום פיך מלדבר ואם רץ לבך שוב למקום שלכך נאמר והחיות רצוא ושוב ועל דבר זה נכרת ברית:

מ”ה  עשר ספירות בלימה נעוץ סופן בתחלתן ותחלתן בסופן כשלהבת קשורה בגחלת. דע וחשוב וצור שאדון יחיד והיוצר אחד ואין לו שני ולפני אחד מה אתה סופר:

מ”ז  עשר ספירות בלימה צפייתן כמראה הבזק ותכליתן אין להם קץ ודברו בהם ברצוא ושוב ולמאמרו כסופה ירדופו ולפני כסאו הם משתחוים:

מ”ח  עשר ספירות בלימה ועשרים ושתים אותיות יסוד. שלש אמות ושבע כפולות ושנים עשר פשוטות ורוח בכל אחת מהן:

מ”ט  עשר ספירות בלימה אחת רוח אלהים חיים נכון כסאו מאז ברוך שמו של חי העולמים תמיד לעולם ועד קול ורוח ודיבור, ודיבור זה הוא רוח הקודש, לראשיתו אין תחלה לאחריתו אין תכלית:

מי”ב  שלש מים מרוח חקק וחצב בהן תהו ובהו רפש וטיט, עשאן כמין ערוגה הציבן כמין חומה סככן כמין מעזיבה ויצק עליהם שלג ונעשה עפר שנאמר כי לשלג יאמר הוא ארץ. תהו זה קו ירוק המקיף את כל העולם, בהו אלו אבנים מפולמות משוקעות בתהום ומביניהם המים יוצאין:

מי”ג  ארבע אש ממים חקק וחצב בה כסא הכבוד שרפים ואופנים וחיות הקודש ומלאכי השרת ומשלשתן יסד מעונו שנאמר עושה מלאכיו רוחות משרתיו אש לוהט:
