According to NANDA, energy field disturbance is defined as the disruption of the flow of energy, or aura, surrounding a person's being that results in a disharmony of the body, mind, and/or spirit. (this diagnosis has been around since 2005-2006)
Nanda is the national board that figures out what nursing diagnosis is applicable to ALL nursing care. As I nurse I had to work with these while making out care plans.... oh LAWD did I ever excel at care plan making! This particular nursing diagnosis was adapted due to the increasing use of therapies like TT (therapeutic touch).
I have a dream...
Really I do... my dream is that I get into the schools for doctors and nurses and attune their hind ends FAR before they become legal health care providers. My dream is that they become aware of the energy, orgone, ki, chi, qi, prana, ether that surrounds their bodies and makes up the stuff of their worlds! Think about that just for a second people... that the next time you HAVE to go and use the allopathic health care system that they not only understand the HEF (human energy field), but they embrace the fact that you are a practicing REIKI or Spiritual healer.
They recognise the importance of complimentary care and all you have done to further your education about the human body and it's systems. Your doctor takes a moment to look into your eyes, takes a nice deep breath with you and recognizes the need for relaxation and for preventative care that includes your wonderful daily yoga, Reiki, or Qi Gong program. She then says, "alright you have done a great job here... I am going to prescribe these antibiotics because we want to make use of the drugs that we can to get rid of this chest infection, but my dear it is clear to me that you have an energy field disturbance caused by not taking the time to get a good massage and meditate daily. WE must exercise our heart centers with self love before we can fill the cups of our loved ones. So that is my other prescription... meditation, massage, and love... keep up the good work!"
Seriously this is my dream and when I get that massage job in Lakeland working as a massage therapist in a brand spanking new medi-spa (you can tell I want this right?), I will be working with the nurses and doctors that 9 years ago I dreamed of training when I began my Reiki journey. OOOOOh changing the world one doctor and nurse at a time... sign me up!
The fact that the national organization that mandates the diagnosis for nursing care now included and energy field disturbance clause, well my friend times are changing. This is an incredible opportunity for anyone looking to break into the allopathic care system... I feel so encouraged and empowered to know that they can not argue with their own acceptable nursing diagnosis for care!
Rock on AMERICA and the forefathers of complimentary care methods in our health care system!
