Mind-body medicine has well recognized the ability of mental images, generated by the mind and

directed to specific parts of the body, to produce profound physiological changes, e.g. impede tumor

growth (Ader, 1981). Psychoneuroimmunologists, however, do not recognize that the mind can also

intentionally focus on and manifest changes in biological systems outside the body.

The effects of focused intention have nonetheless been studied using both physical (Jahn and Dunne,

1986) and biological systems (Braud, 1989), and is often referred to respectively as psychokinesis (PK)

and Bio-PK. A parallel investigation of conscious intention on biological systems falls under the auspices

of healing research where investigators have demonstrated that various types of healers can produce

biological effect (Benor, 1990). A third line of investigation involves the study of Chi-Gong practitioners

who can also influence biological systems. Most of these studies, however, are phenomenological and

are only intended to demonstrate an energetic communication between the practitioner and the

biological target. In most healing experiments the intention of the practitioner is to “heal” or normalize the

pathological situation.

A few studies, however, have addressed the question whether different intentional states of

consciousness produce different biological effects. For example, Rauscher and Rubik examined the

relationship between biological responses and different healing state of consciousness (Rauscher and

Rubik, 1983). These experiments were designed to determine whether the healer could protect bacterial

cells in culture from inhibition induced by an antibiotic (ampicillin). Using different intentions Laskow could

either protect bacteria from the lethal effects of antibiotics or inhibit their growth in the absence of


Sweet and Myers of Spindrift compared two different healing states of consciousness, goal directed and

qualitative (Sweet, 1991). Since qualitative healing, as they characterize it, is the surrender of one’s will

to the will of God, there is no focused intention as in goal-directed healing. These different states of

consciousness produced different biological effects on the growth of yeast and seeds.
