Art Plus Science Equals Magic
Creating Energy Objects & Symbols That
Change The Fabric Of Reality
There is something wonderfully appropriate about making works of art to heal
- an individual, an environment, a family, or a company.
Silvia Hartmann explains, "The trouble with environmental energy healing is
that you can't see it. As you can't see it, you can forget about it or think it
isn't even there. I love the way these large, colourful energy channelling
devices say, Look! Here I am! I am energy and I am absolutely REAL!"
Behind the material facade of everything, there lie the realms upon realms
of "invisible existence" or to use a shorthand term, "the energy of a thing".
Invisible Causes For Physical Effects
The energy of a thing and no matter how simple it may be is made up of many
different frequencies, many different planes. For example, a simple wooden chair
would have original energetic frequencies of the wood it was made from, which
remembers in its very structure where the tree grew, what the summers and
winters were like all through its long journey from a small seed to a full grown
Moreover, the chair also retains what happened to the wood after the tree
was felled, the wood processed. The lacquers used, the workmen who handled it
all changed its energetic structure just as much as they changed a log to a
rough cut plank, to a filed and sanded shape, and to the final painted, coated
Each chair is entirely unique, has its entirely unique energetic properties
and this is so for every object we can see, feel, touch, trade and have in the
Hard, which is a better term than "reality" for reality of course consists of
far more than just "the hard".
A great many problems which individuals face today, and groups collectively,
and societies beyond this right out to all of humanity is the central lack of
understanding of the basic principles of energy - those cause-and-effect
absolutely real occurrences that are not seen.
One of these mostly unknown and untreated occurrences and realities is the
fact that as each chair has a unique and absolute frequency of energies, so do
all environments, all things and all people; and not everything can be used for
People can suffer from energy allergies, from energetic forms of
malnutrition (even though they take vitamin supplements in the Hard!), from
energetic poisoning because they are forced to live in environments which are
not beneficial or matching to their own personal resonance bandwidths, and all
they know of it is that they feel unhappy and out of sorts, yet there seems to
"visible" or "hard" reason for this.
Silvia Hartmann, PhD has been campaigning for a greater awareness of the
absolutely real and very powerful influences of energetic occurrences to be
taken more seriously ever since she discovered in 1993, during a study on high
end behavioural disorders in dogs, that these were directly related to and
caused by the "invisible energies" traded and exchanged in mammals.
She says, "It was just like Sherlock Holmes said - when you have excluded
everything possible, then the impossible must be the answer. I had been working
for years with nutrition, and behavioural modifications, with upbringing and
genetics and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason. Until I finally postulated a
Factor X to make the equations work. And this Factor X, which really does
explain exactly how and why social mammals become structurally autistic, display
rage syndrome or extreme health and mental problems, such as self mutilation and
spontaneous onsets of cancers, turned out to be invisible in nature, but totally
real nonetheless - energy exchanges were at work."
For the next 17 years, Hartmann began to study and research these
"invisible effects" and draw up new theories as to how the universe actually
As a side effect of these studies, she was able to create a great range of
very practical and highly acclaimed breakthrough techniques for explaining and
solving psychological puzzles in human thought and behaviour, including "The
Harmony Programme" (1994), "Project Sanctuary" (1996), "Powerfields" (1999),
"Guiding Stars" (2000) and finally the EmoTrance energy awareness applications
(Oceans of Energy 2003, Living Energy 2004).
Love And Logic
Hartmann says, "What surprised me most of all, time and time again, was
that when you bring in the energy realms, things begin to work with such
lightness and with ease, it is just extraordinary. And the important thing to
understand is that what we are doing is NOT the usual move by which we separate
out the energy work from the day-to-day living, but bring it back together, have
it be present ALL and at the same time. That's when thing really begin to make
some sense, and methods and techniques really start to work like the proverbial
In this way, there is no difference between art and science - both are
simply aspects of the same underlying true and composite reality which have
become detached from one another, much in the same way as the secular and the
sacred became detached when neither can work without the other or have any hope
of making any kind of sense.
"I have been working with and studying especially human emotions for a very,
very long time indeed. It is a huge, a really HUGE mistake to think that a fully
functional human being can even successfully exist without emotions. What you
get if you try is once again, a useless thing, devoid of practical performance,
that can do nothing particularly well at all.
"Of course, that's exactly the same the other way around. If you make
emotions into a god and turn your back on logic, you just might as well jump
into a swamp and become a frog.
"The real truth is that the universe is incredibly logical. And it is full
of powerful energies AS WELL - those powerful energies are what are causing the
side effect of human emotions. You can't understand energy without the feedback
device of emotion, and you can't do anything at all if you then don't examine
all of this logically and USE IT to make our lives more interesting, learn more
about the creative order and our place within that. Most of all, to re-claim our
birthrights of intelligence AND emotions to become whole people to whom the
world makes sense, where they feel at home - just as the creative which designed
us intended in the first place."
One of the major breakthroughs in 2004 revolved around the concept of "Art
Solutions". Struck by the intensity of negativity coming from a reproduction
print of Edvard Munch's "The Scream", Hartmann set to work to try out the
theories of energy-hard re-unification through the medium of visual art.
"I wondered," she said, "How many people who committed suicide had that print
on their walls. I wondered how many would have been able to find a way out of
their states of depression and hopelessness if there had been a different
picture on the wall."
However, there is the question of rapport. It is well known that someone who
is themselves very depressed will choose something like "The Scream" because
this feels familiar, it matches their own states of energetic resonance, and in
doing so, makes them feel less alone.
"You just can't go round depressed people's houses, take their "Screams" off
the walls and put happy flying ducks there instead. They'll hate it and nothing
good can come of it," says Hartmann. "But the world of energy once more can
give us a solution to the problem of rapport with extremely angry or miserable
artists - namely that instead of remaining stuck in the place where you tell
everyone how sad you are, you START THERE but then go on to provide a SOLUTION.
"The "Scream" paintings, and of course, scream-style music, drama, theater,
sculptures and so on, are so beloved because they are true and they are
authentic. They are a description of the artist's true emotions, or their
energies if you will, and that makes them highly desirable to those who resonate
at a similar level.
"Energy doesn't stay still, not like a hard chair does, or so it seems, and
all that we need to do as artists to NOT leave such a legacy of pain and misery
oozing from a million unhappy teenager's walls all around the World, is simply
to take one further step, namely, to give the solution to the problem."
But how does that work in practice?
Ananga Sivyer, a composer and Ayurvedic Medicine researcher, explains.
"It really is astonishingly simple. Normally, one would have an inspiration
or an idea, which is an energy rising that expresses itself in emotions, and of
course, the stronger the energy, the more profound and attractive the emotions
will be, and regardless of whether they are positive or negative emotions, at
"Before I was fortunate enough to be one of the first people to get to try Dr
Hartmann's concept, I would then take that exact energy and make it into a
composition. It is absolutely true that even thought they were very powerful and
very artistic compositions, I was not happy to share these with a wider audience
and in hindsight, I recognise that I must have known that these statements of
pain in artistic form are not what I want to contribute.
"The way I do it now is to sit down and contemplate the problem, the sadness
or the strongest emotion that seeks to be addressed. But then, I take the next
step and HAVE MY MUSIC BECOME THE SOLUTION INSTEAD."
This profoundly useful movement, namely to start with the reality of the
problem, the very real resonance of the emotional energies, and then to take
THAT and present the SOLUTION instead, answers the problem of "rapport
Someone who might have been drawn to the scream will still be able to
absolutely recognise the starting point but instead of getting stuck there, will
be drawn forward, and towards a solution.
A Soaring, Freeing Artistic Experience
Hartmann says, "As a painter, I must admit that this has been the most
freeing, soaring artistic experience of my life. To state the problem honestly
and have my art become the solution is nothing less than wonderful. There is
such an immediate sense of flow - of ideas, of excitement, of energy and
inspiration, it is really incredible that this hasn't been done before.
"All the old injuries, all the old screams - they can get a chance at
resolution and release. They don't have to be hidden away anymore but you can
have them come forward and then resolve them. I'm very aware of my own energy
shifts as I am working in this way with the paintings, the grids and the images
and it is the most extraordinary and delightful healing I've ever felt. It is by
me, through me and the results as well, the finished artwork, is so alive, it
Ananga Sivyer, who has just completed her first album of Sonic Solutions,
entitled, "Here And Now", agrees.
"It was such a rush being able to go towards the solutions than endlessly
having to restate the questions, endlessly re-experiencing the same old
feelings. These compositions are amazing to myself. I've broken through all
kinds of barriers, all kinds of boundaries in the production and creation of the
"Here And Now" album - and this is only the beginning!"
What effects do the results of this art healing, the finished paintings by Dr
Hartmann and the compositions by Ananga Sivyer have on those who see them, hear
them and most importantly, feel them?
The first reaction is always one of surprise and intrigue. Questions are
asked. The more energy conscious someone is, the more delighted they are by the
levels and depths of these works of art, because form and function are aligned
with intent, and with truth in every way.
These are not illusionary "happy" works of art. They are real and yet
entirely inspiring, lifting without once denying the truth of their origins,
namely what is really like for a human being to live here, how difficult that is
when one feels disconnected from the Universe and those around us, and how one
may turn it around and seek solutions.
Hartmann says, "I think some people will find our solutions to be their
solutions also. But that's not so important to me. I think for many more, many,
many more our ATTEMPTS at finding the solutions are the inspiration.
"Yes, we get unhappy. Yes, we have very traumatic memories and things that we
find so difficult, we too want to "scream" sometimes. And we admit that to
ourselves, enter that in honesty and then seek the solution. I think that's the
role model I'm happy to be as the artist, that's the effect I want to have and
be remembered for.
"I have been thinking about this, how the Art Solutions are a complete merger
of truth, hard reality, science, and art. And I really think that when you have
managed to bring art and science back together, what you end up with is real
