The Chain of Life
by Dr W. Guyon Richards, now apparently out of print, is a fascinating and intriguing
book on Radionics and Radionic therapeutics and should be studied if you can
get hold of a copy. Not for the beginner. It was published by C W Daniel, so
writing to them might help persuade them to reprint it.
The Science of
Cosmic Ray Therapy, or
Dr Benoytosh Bhattacharya, revised and enlarged by Dr A.K. Bhattacharya and Dr. D. N. Ramchandran
This is the first book I read
on Radionics and although it impressed me greatly I did not accept a word of it. The only
possibility was to try it and see if it worked. And here we are.....

A few FAQs:
1. Are Radionic
instruments really necessary?
It is argued - and has apparently been demonstrated - that Radionic results can be
obtained by, for instance, drawing a picture of a Radionic instrument on a piece of paper,
marking in the settings, and using this for treatment. Therefore, the argument continues,
why do we need to purchase instruments? It might also be asked - but what was the quality
of the result?
This question is dealt with
at length by Malcolm Rae in Dimensions of Radionics, who explains that the
instrument provides a tuning focus for the mind. Radionic practitioners may have many
patients under treatment, and it would be extremely difficult - probably impossible - to
hold the image of each patient and the respective treatment in concentrated focus at all
times. Thus the instrument acts as a kind of sample and hold device which
allows the operator to set it up for a treatment and then leave it while getting on with
other activities. The practitioner has already provided the basic impetus through his or
her intent to heal and the Radionic instrument does the rest. For a further expansion on
the idea of intent, it is worth reading A Treatise On White Magic by Alice Bailey,
which is essentially about creativity through focused intention, and not, as the title
seems to suggest, forms of magical ritual.
It should also be noted that
Radionic treatments, unlike, for example faith healings, use highly-specific treatments
which are designed to alleviate specific energetic disturbances as identified by the
practitioner. Thus selection of the most appropriate treatments is a crucial part of
Radionic work and the practitioner will spend much time determining what needs to be done
and how. Thus, working without an instrument, not only would the practitioner have to hold
in mind a general intention to heal but also many specific intentions
held specifically for a number of patients.
Is Radionics actually
magic by another name?
Not being a magician I cannot
give detailed comments about magic and its aims and intentions. But as described above, in
Radionic working the objective is to heal specific health problems using precisely-specified
Radionic codes. In doing so the practitioner must have the patient's permission,
preferably in writing. We do not perform treatments to help solve financial problems or
induce invisibility or find new lovers etc, which may be the province of the magical arts.
Useful books on magic have been written by Dion Fortune and the interested reader could
consult those works for an introduction to this subject. Similarly black magic may be used
to attack other persons by the creation of astral entities and so on (see Dion Fortune - Psychic
Protection) but obviously, this is done without the other person's consent and
usually bears harmful intent on the part of magician. However it has fallen to Radionics
from time to time to give treatments to rid patients of supposed possessing entities,
curses and other pseudo-miasmata. These must be taken seriously; they may be
delusions on the part of the patient but their effects may be very serious.
Another view is that it may
be a misnomer in general terms to talk about magic as such; magic, sorcery, witchcraft etc
may well be simply personifications of things which are not yet understood or accepted by
mainstream human thought - the question of whether magical operations are actually
efficient or effective being a secondary matter. To look at it another way, if you can
still find on this planet primitives who have not witnessed modern technology,
and you switch a radio on in front of them and music or voices come out of it, they might
well ascribe the phenomenon to magic. We modern people of course know that the
radio is a device for picking up electromagnetic waves which have been broadcast from a
radio station. On the other hand if the untutored modern person looks at a piece of music
by Mozart on an oscilloscope (a device for looking at electromagnetic waveforms) he will
see a very complex line wiggling around on the screen and will probably wonder how that
translates into the melodies of the 41st Symphony, so his puzzlement may be as great as
that of the tribesman with a bone through his nose. If we took this yet a further step and
gave him a print-out of the binary data for a 24-bit digitally-encoded version of Mozart
and explained that this was, in fact, the symphony, I am sure our modern consumer would be
utterly baffled. In short, as I see it at present, if we decide to call Radionics
magic it is simply because we dont have a better explanation, and thus
we also, from a certain standpoint, are primitives. Magic so-called may in
fact be the manipulation of non-physical (or subtle) energies and formative
forces by a physical person to bring about certain desired results on the physical plane.
We might further take the
view that everything in the Universe happens under Law, and where we have not discerned
the nature of those Laws, we think in terms of Magic, Miracles, and so forth. From another
angle, this might lead to the idea that where the manipulation conforms to the Law, it is
White Magic, and where the manipulation attempts to breach the Law, it is Black Magic, and
hence the personal danger to the prospective Black Magician when the Law ultimately
re-asserts itself. This would help the reader to understand the nature of Radionic
working, in that ill intent will come back on the practitioner.
Most human activities are
preceded by thought at some level and the effective person is the one who can translate
his or her thought into physical manifestation through the strength of their intent, in
short, their ability to manifest thought on the physical plane. Thus is could be argued
that everyone practises magic to a greater or lesser degree according to their
level of success at getting what they want out of life.
The concepts of Morphogenetic
Fields, Morphic Resonance and the Theory of Formative Causation may help provide further
explanations for some of the processes taking place in Radionics, particularly on the
matter of analysis and treatment selection. These theories have been set out by Rupert
Sheldrake in his books A New Science of Life and
The Presence of the Past, although, as noted, there is no
discussion of Radionics in the text.
3. What type of pendulum
should I use?
Many different types of pendulum are
available and it can be argued that a pendulum simply amplifies a muscle reaction in the
arm of the dowser and therefore any suitable object will do, such as a wedding ring on the
end of a cotton thread. I personally use small inexpensive brass pendulums as I find that
appropriate weight and balance are important to facilitate rapid working.
