Dr. Brenda Davies interviewed
by Viola Edward
Hello Brenda it is so nice to meet you again, I know how much you like to be in Cyprus and how connected you are with the Cypriots. I was delighted to be in one of your workshop last April and I am so pleased that you are back; I would like my friend, the lecturer to know more about you and your work.
Q: You are a Scientist and a healer, how do these two subjects work together?
A: I believe that in the end there is only one energy and the healer and the scientist may view it differently, but that is all. So for me there has never been a conflict – I use whatever will help the person I work with. What we consider ‘scientific’ is only so because it has been proven by scientific means, whereas what we consider spiritual may not yet have scientific proof, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. So I don’t see that there needs to be a conflict. Even over the last thirty or forty years – and steadily advancing – is a body of scientific knowledge about issues that the healer or the mystic always felt, knew or saw. These are therefore now considered ‘real’, though they always were even without the benefit of such proof. As I wrote in my first book, rainbows always existed and didn’t become more real just because some scientist finally split the spectrum so we had scientific proof of the nature of light.
Q: Can you identify or demonstrate the relation between Science and energy?
A: They are simply a continuum. Energy is the base material of all life and all that exists. Science sets out to understand it. So in a way, science is always catching up by proving what on some level we already know. Sometimes I feel it’s a little sad however that many forms of energy are dismissed until we await the seal of scientific proof.
Q: Why did you become a Medical Doctor?
A: Having been a ‘healer’ since I was a child, I guess somewhere within me was the desire to formalise that and be more useful. I have loved the science of medicine, and for me too it’s been important to have scientific proof of what I could always see and sense. Often as a child I was dismissed as being crazy simply because many people couldn’t see what I could. And sometimes medicine can go further than healing, and sometimes vice versa. So integrating the two gives us a broader reach. Though I don’t prescribe very much, there are times when it’s obvious that antibiotics will be life-saving, and chronic pain and disability require more than healers may be able to give. There are times when emergency surgery is essential. So for me the art of diagnosis was, and remains, an essential and exciting tool, and when I teach I always stress how important it is that we have a proper history, good examination, proper investigation and a high standard of ethics and confidentiality that I base upon my medical training. We are not gods and should never act as such and medicine gave me credibility as a scientist and willing and capable student that the title of ‘healer’ lacks. I have loved the marriage of the two.
