Everything has its politics. The more you go into subjects, the more this is apparent. It is especially difficult when the original source of the research or information is no longer with us.
Dr Hamer’s work is no different.
If you have researched into the Biological Laws, you may have noticed a few practitioners and teachers each with their own following, some intent on putting others down and some claiming to be the only one officially endorsed by Dr Hamer. Some put the information behind a money wall, taking offence at those offering the information freely, and some are downright plagiarising Dr Hamer’s work.
I do understand many of these people are genuinely trying to preserve Dr Hamer’s work to make sure is kept pure and not taken out of context in its teachings, and even though this can be restrictive for those wanting to share this information, it is very important. It is also important that when you delve deeper into the Biological Laws, you select your source carefully as there are many professing to be teachers of GNM or GHK and assuming authority of it.
Lloyd and I are not an authority of Dr Hamer’s work, we are not teachers (as there is no official course), we merely share the fundamental truth of the biological laws to enlighten others lives and encourage further study. We want to separate from the politics surrounding Dr Hamer’s discoveries as we believe this can put people off learning about the Laws and it dilutes the extremely important messages they give us.
What’s the official name?
You will notice there are different names used for the Biological Laws. Dr Hamer wanted to distance himself from the controversy,so in his later years he changed the name of his discoveriesfrom GNM to Germanische Heilkunde or GHK (specifically this was chosen due to not having an English translation, so it could only be called the one name, but the acronym has since been given an english meaning of Germanic Healing Knowledge by some). The Spanish refer to Dr Hamer’s work as La Medicina Sacrada, menaing Sacred Medicine (this was while he was still alive and with his blessing) hence the name of our presentation and our show with Richard D Hall.
Due to feedback from promoting the events and from others, the terms German, Sacred and Medicine have been off-putting for many, forming presumptions of what it actually is. The term Germanische Heilkunde is difficult to pronounce and, again, it makes it difficult for people to understand what it could be.
Lloyd and I want to honour Dr Hamer’s actual discoveries, not someone’s branding or rebranding of it. Additionally, we agree with many others who have given me their opinions, that having a name or copyrighted branding gives the impression that Dr Hamer’s discoveries are simply another modality that can be chosen amongst others, so in a way misrepresents it, as the Laws are, in essence, a fundamental truth. Though we completely understand the reasons for wanting to protect his work, it does have the ongoing effect of preventing it from being freely shared when there is the threat of being labelled a plagiarist.
Lloyd and I want to have the freedom to practice and share the information as we feel is most beneficial to all, including all the techniques we use that we have found very beneficial to ourselves and others, with everything we do underpinned by the solid scientific foundation of the biological laws. However, we often find a lot of restrictions in sharing Dr Hamer’s work due to the images and material being copyrighted and it is unclear if we’d be labelled as plagiarists or breaching copyright if we try to create our own diagrams. (Any copyrighted images in videos and presentations we have used has been endorsed by their owners).
Lloyd and I stay true to, and honour, Dr Hamer and his work when sharing his discoveries as we have been taught them by Caroline Markolin, along with further research and study of Dr Hamer’s resources that are available in English, and further study through the translated lectures by Helmut Pilhar and others. However we are not authority or expert on this, and simply want to share the information going into enough detail that people need to enable them to take notice, while not going out of our depth into the deeper science. And we want to encourage everyone to obtain further information from experienced and trusted sources if they wish to find out more than we offer.
I am always clear when sharing information that is mine and/or Lloyd’s opinion or practice with the foundation of the laws, rather than the laws themselves, such as how we work with and live by the knowledge. We feel it is important to make a clear definition of what is Dr Hamer’s original work and what is our own guidance on living and working with it. In sharing this information in this way, we are not trying to mold the laws into anything, plagiarise the work or change them in any way. The Laws are the solid, fundamental truth that we build everything else upon.
While we don’t necessarily want to endorse one source over another, as it is not our position to do so, we refer to Dr Hamer’s work as GNM because that is how we first came across it and learnt it and it therefore comes naturally. It is also the term used by Caroline Markolin in her excellent website learninggnm.com, which continues to be an extremely valuable resource for myself and for practitioners worldwide, and so far is the most extensive free resource for Dr Hamer’s work.
We do however prefer to call these discoveries simply the ‘biological laws’, the ‘laws of nature’, ‘Dr Hamer’s Laws’ or even simply ‘Hamer’s Laws’ such as in other branches of science who honour discoverers such as Newton’s Law, etc.
Use of the term Healing
I recently came across someone who was condemning the use of the term Healing Phase. I use this term extensively as it feels natural to do so, it is more easily understood and accepted by the wider audience. To me, healing means restoration and recovery which fits with what happens in PCL Phase.
I looked up the actual definition and it is stated as ‘the restoration of structure and function of tissues’, as well as other definitions implying disease. There is a thought that healing implies that something was wrong in the first place and this needs healing, and this is incorrect as everything in nature is meaningful. However, when we understand the laws, we know exactly that what is meant by the term healing is restoration and recovery, and I don’t think it is necessary to be pedantic about what can be construed from erroneous definitions and interpretation.
We need to remember that all of Dr Hamer’s work has been translated from German, so this lends to different translations by different people, and some words may not have a direct translation that encapsulates the original intention of the word. Therefore some translated terms are open to opinion. I also wonder if this may be yet another little political dig between the various ‘camps’ of those who teach GNM/GHK, another opportunity to call each other wrong. We need to rise above this as I really feel it dilutes the message as I mentioned.
I say you need to use whatever phrases or terms you personally resonate most with as this is an individual and personal journey to your own self-empowerment.
At the end of the day, when all is said and done, the Biological Laws of Nature are one of the most important discoveries in our lives, whatever you decide to call it, whatever terms you decide to use and wherever you decide to learn from!
