The study of Advanced Clearing Energetics® (ACE) is in the name, it’s all about clearing energy. But what really causes energy to be added or taken away in a person and why is it so important that it is corrected or healed?
There are three components at play that confirm energetics is how you power your whole system, your behaviour and therefore if you fail or succeed. They are melanin, mitochondria1 and structured water.2
Melanin3 is the pigment that makes your skin colour. However, many people are unaware that melanin also surrounds practically every organ in your body, it can also be found deep in your brain. To give you an example of this, there is an organ called the Substantia Nigra. The word Nigra is latin for dark, and it refers to the fact that this organ is black and full of NeuroMelanin.4 That blackness is because melanin is mostly made from carbon that surrounds the densely packed mitochondria.5
Melanin is a carbon based semi-conductor6 that runs on water7 and it’s truly incredible. It receives and transmits information through light that is mostly outside of the visual spectrum, in the infra-red and ultraviolet range.
To explain this further, semi-conductors joined together make up microchips, like the ones you find in electronic devices such as your mobile phone or computer. However, these use silicon not carbon and they don’t run on water. As anyone who has dropped their mobile phone in the bath will testify. They also don’t simultaneously transmit or receive information. But like Melanin they do run on electrons and require energy to make them work.
Melanin is so amazing that scientist are now starting to experiment with it, to see how they can go way beyond our present microchips.8
You run microchips using electricity, by connecting them to an energy source, such as a power supply or a battery. It’s also worth noting that when you pass electricity through any conductor it creates a magnetic field around it. This is because it creates a flow of negatively charged electrons through the conductor.
Melanin is the same but its energy source comes from a specific type of water that has a negative electron charge to it, known as structured water or EZ water9. This water is found inside every cell in your body. Where mitochondria fit into this equation is they make energy through something called ‘The Citric Acid cycle,’10 which in turn creates heat through an electron transport chain, this structures the water inside your cells. Every cell, apart from blood cells has anything from 500 - 10,000 mitochondria in them, although this can vary based on cell health and environmental conditions.
When it comes to answering what is ‘energetics’, I am sure you have experienced what happens when your mobile phone battery runs out of juice or your computer stops running, it’s because it’s low on energy. Often these devices go into a low power mode. To get them running again you need to recharge them. It’s the same for melanin. If it has little or no energy to power it, it stops functioning properly.
Many practitioners refer to addressing the low power mode in humans as energetic healing, which is really about recharging or correcting the flow of energy to the mitochondria, which restructures the water and allows the melanin to run on full power.
Similarly, if a computer has to do a lot of work, such as processing a large video file, it depletes itself of energy. This happens in humans as we process complex amounts of data such as a stressful event, or eat foods we are allergic to, or living in a dysfunctional relationship; we end up running out of energy. Therefore, energetic healing often helps by resolving stressful events, detoxifying the body or by changing the environment the person lives or works in.
Mitochondria become dysfunctional when subjected to ongoing chronic stress.11 Likewise, structured water becomes unstructured and loses its power when subjected to magnetic fields that break up its intricate balance due to calcium overload.12 Melanin becomes depleted when it’s carbon structure is broken down, affecting our mood due to the reduction or increase in dopamine levels.13
How does this then affect you in the real world? Alterations of the electrical and magnetic field around you disrupt the energy flow in your mitochondria, structured water and the melanin semi-conductors, stopping them all from doing their jobs and from communicating correctly.
As an example, the magnetic field of the heart, which has been studied extensively, has shown that being in the presence of an angry or happy person can have an effect on your heart-rate variability, which then affects your behaviour.14 Imagine then how this may play out when a person is subjected to continuous abuse in any relationship, at work, or in their home life. Or alternatively, how a person behaves in a supportive work environment or a loving relationship.
One way to describe the transmitting and receiving part of melanin in your body and how it works for you, is to think of it as a three dimensional, moving TV with 6 sides, where the screens all meet together to create a solid three dimensional block. It’s a cube that has a back, front, left and right, a top and bottom.
Inside that cube is where your consciousness resides. The front and back screens emit your future and past, this is what you perceive as time. There is a feminine energy screen and a masculine energy screen on the left and right hand side. There is also a sun or spirit screen, which is above you and a grounded earth screen below. This all links in with Circadian Rhythms15, meaning we adapt to the changes in dark and light through the visual and non-visual light receptors in melanin, called Opsins.16
In other words, your body is a moving hologram with you in the centre and your thoughts swirling around on the outside. All of this is happening electromagnetically, chemically, on a quantum level and also on a scalar or cosmic wave level. It’s known as the human bio-field.17
How this cube powers itself is through structured water. As I have mentioned, mitochondria are mainly responsible for making this electrically charged water18, sunlight and earthing also play their part. As sunlight charges the cells through coherent light19 and earthing equally charges the body through Mother Earth being negatively charged.20
When a shock or traumatic event occurs it changes the balance of the energy in this holographic cube. You could imagine it as if a whole weight of energy lands in one of the eight corners of the cube. Knocking the whole cube out of balance.
Traumatic events affect cells causing mitochondrial dysfunction,21 the structured water can no longer hold its negative charge. The net effect, the now positively charged trauma upsets the overall natural negatively charged electron balance of the cube, resulting in the cube shifting to one side and leaving an energetic void in another. Think of it like heat being concentrated in one corner where the trauma resides, but it also means in another area there is less energy, being colder or even a void.
We can see an effect of this occurring because we can measure this through electrical and chemical changes during shocks and also when a person revisits a trauma.22 It’s also obvious when we observe microchips in electrical devices, because they also exhibit this phenomena when they go wrong.23
Anyone who has experienced a horrific stressful event can probably relate to this. The charged water gets pulled in one direction as it depletes the energy in another part of the cube. Essentially draining a person of their natural energy flow and pushing it into one area of obsessive thinking, that disrupts their whole life.
We can see this as people exhibit different challenging behaviours, changes in sexuality, anxiety as in fear of the future, or paranoia as in fear of being attacked from behind. Other events such as a person becoming delusional, or being stuck and unable to move forward in life.
This can be simply confirmed when we consider what happens to the body during a shock, as the body goes into the sympathetic nervous system.24 Energy is pulled into the musculature and diverted away from the digestive system, allowing us to fight, flight or freeze. All for survival reasons.
Stressful environments, such as working and living inside on mobile devices also deplete melanin and disrupt mitochondria function.25
Being in the sun or connected to the earth all play a major part in our psyche and general mental wellbeing, as the sun charges our melanin and mitochondria through ultra violet and infrared light via the skin, and the earth does the same through the earths field exhibiting a negative charge.26 Being in a peaceful environment, going on holiday in the sun, all have an effect on our wellbeing in a positive way.27
There is also other good news, if you fill the melanin with thoughts that bring balanced non-visual light into the area, where a shock has been resolved, the melanin will respond and further fuel the mitochondria, allowing for more structuring of the water within the cell. This is the antithesis of the shock, it also answers how goal setting, if aligned and balanced in an individual or an organisation is empowering, adding energy to all.28
Energetics is therefore vitally important for everyone. As it goes way beyond what most people consider as a fringe system of healing. Instead it is the basis behind all life and by rebalancing the energetics in a person or system, it has profound positive effects on individuals, teams and businesses.

3 Melanin; from Ancient Greek μέλας (mélas) 'black, dark') is a broad term for a group of natural pigments found in most organisms. The melanin pigments are produced in a specialized group of cells known as melanocytes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melanin
4 The substantia nigra (SN) is a basal ganglia structure located in the midbrain that plays an important role in reward and movement. Substantia nigra is Latin for "black substance", reflecting the fact that parts of the substantia nigra appear darker than neighboring areas due to high levels of neuromelanin in dopaminergic neurons. Parkinson's disease is characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Substantia_nigra
5 Several studies have recently demonstrated the close relationship between mitochondria and melanogenesis in melanocytes. Physical contact between mitochondria and melanosomes, specialized melanin pigment-producing and lysosome-lineage organelles produced in melanocytes, has been frequently reported. In addition, melanin synthesis has been shown to be regulated by mitochondrial dynamics through their fission and fusion. https://www.jdsjournal.com/article/S0923-1811(16)30714-9/fulltext

7 What may not be immediately obvious, given melanin’s insoluble nature, is that the material itself is quite hygroscopic. Water adsorption isotherms of melanin have indicated that it can absorb up to 20% of its own weight in water, which corresponds roughly to ~2 water molecules to a monomer moiety. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8161012/

11 In this review, we have discussed emerging evidence indicating that chronic stress generates maladaptive alterations in mitochondria, which contribute to allostatic processes, ultimately promoting aging and disease. Together with the extensive body of literature on early adversity, these findings collectively highlight the critical value of early screening and intervention for childhood maltreatment. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8007172/
12 We demonstrate that intracellular Ca2+ leak causes mitochondrial Ca2+ overload and dysfunction in postischemic heart failure (HF). In particular, sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ leak via type 2 ryanodine receptor (RyR2)—but not type 2 inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (IP3R2)—channels plays a fundamental role in the pathophysiology of mitochondrial Ca2+ overload and dysfunction in HF. We present here a previously undisclosed molecular mechanism in HF with crucial implications in cardiac physiology. Indeed, our data establish a feedback loop between SR and mitochondria in which SR Ca2+ leak triggers mitochondrial dysfunction and increases the production of free radicals, which in turn lead to posttranslational modifications of RyR2 and enhance intracellular Ca2+ leak, thereby contributing to impaired cardiac function after myocardial infarction. https://www.pnas.org/doi/abs/10.1073/pnas.1513047112

14 Each individual’s thoughts, attitudes and emotions emit energetic fields.

15 The biological clock is involved in many aspects of our complex physiology. We now know that all multicellular organisms, including humans, utilize a similar mechanism to control circadian rhythms. A large proportion of our genes are regulated by the biological clock and, consequently, a carefully calibrated circadian rhythm adapts our physiology to the different phases of the day (Figure 3). Since the seminal discoveries by the three laureates, circadian biology has developed into a vast and highly dynamic research field, with implications for our health and wellbeing. https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2017/press-release/
16 Opsins are the universal photoreceptor molecules of all visual systems in the animal kingdom. They change from a resting state to a signalling state by absorbing light. This activates the G protein, resulting in a signalling cascade which produces physiological responses. This process of capturing a photon and transforming it into a physiological response is known as phototransduction. Five groups of opsins are involved in vision. Another opsin found in the mammalian retina, melanopsin, is involved in circadian rhythms and pupillary reflex, but not in image-forming. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opsin
17 Current medical science is just beginning to explore the electric nature of the human body. Zhang has called the biofield the “electromagnetic body” and described it to be a complex, ultraweak field of chaotic standing waves, a dissipative structure of electromagnetic fields that forms the energetic anatomic structures including the chakras and acupuncture meridians (Zhang, 1995, 1996). Even though medical science has been largely focused on the mechanical and chemical aspects of the body, especially for the last seven decades, there have been a number of researchers prior to and throughout this time period who have done extensive investigation into the electromagnetic body. However, the field of subtle energy research has been limited by the sensitivity of the technologies and their capability to detect minute changes in and around the body. https://www.faim.org/what-is-the-biofield
18 So when that water is not structured to become an exclusion zone (EZ), the hydrogen bonding network is not tight enough in water’s networks around mitochondria. As a result, those networks are less condensed and more spread-out. This allows the proteins to spread out further than they should. Every one Angstrom of “stretching out” between the respiratory proteins leads to less electron tunneling and a massive loss of redox power in the mitochondria by a factor of ten!!! Why does this happen? Water has some anomalous properties when it is heated by IR-A light and life takes full advantage of these properties in a cell to improve energy flux in mitochondria. https://jackkruse.com/reality-14-warburgs-proof/
19 Moreover, close to 65 years ago, the father of biochemistry, Hungarian born U.S. scientist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi had already highlighted the importance of water for life, and proposed that organized water existing close to surfaces, such as found in cell membranes, is able to induce a very long lasting electronic excitation via resonant transfer of the different molecular species present in liquid crystals, thereby activating them and enabling their mutual attraction for reactions to take place. When electrons are added to surfaces they become more hydrophilic and they for an exclusion zone (EZ) in water. They are called exclusion zone because they exclude everything larger than the size of light hydrogen. This EZ has a large net negative charge and becomes a battery in water for electromagnetic radiations from the sun. https://jackkruse.com/quantum-biology-5-coherent-water/
20 The earth is negatively charged, carrying 500,000 C of electric charge. This results in a 300 kV potential difference between the earth and the positively charged ionosphere. C (earth-ionosphere) = 1. 7FIf we assume that the bottom of the ionosphere is 60km above the surface, what is the magnitude of the average electric field between earth and the ionosphere? https://science-atlas.com/faq/why-is-the-earth-negatively-charged/

Overall, evidence supports the notion that acute and chronic stressors influence various aspects of mitochondrial biology, and that chronic stress exposure can lead to molecular and functional recalibration among mitochondria.

22 The skin tells everything – our skin gives away a lot of information on how we feel when we’re exposed to emotionally loaded images, videos, events, or other kinds of stimuli – both positive and negative. No matter whether we are stressed, nervous, fearful, psyched up, stoked, baffled, or surprised – whenever we are emotionally aroused, the electrical conductivity of our skin subtly changes. One of the most sensitive measures for emotional arousal is Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), also referred to as Electrodermal Activity (EDA) or Skin Conductance (SC). https://imotions.com/blog/learning/research-fundamentals/galvanic-skin-response/
23 D.Thermal Imaging in Electronics Engineering. Among the various mature applications of thermal imaging in various other branches of engineering and electronics engineering, it can be used to form another matured application of managing thermal behavior of electronic components. Some of mature applications of thermal imaging in electronics are detection of shorts, cracked conducting tracks or vias, testing of BGAs (Ball Grid Array), HotSpot detection and many others. Figure 2 shows thermal image electronic component. https://research.ijcaonline.org/ncece2016/number1/ncece29513.pdf
24 The sympathetic nervous system makes up part of the autonomic nervous system, also known as the involuntary nervous system. Without conscious direction, the autonomic nervous system regulates important bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, pupil dilation, body temperature, sweating and digestion. https://www.livescience.com/65446-sympathetic-nervous-system.html
25 For humans, the absence of light is an optical nonlinear signal that indicates that it is the period when redox levels are unstressed by solar radiation. This is how the brain tells time, night from day. It is an old evolutionary clock that was important before the SCN came along. This clock, however, in humans still controls glucose metabolism. It also is the reason why blue light at night is what is driving insulin resistance and the runaway diabetes we see today. The optical signal of melatonin is a key circadian timing signal contributes to and is a part of a cascade of other responses that help initiate and maintain sleep when light is not present. Melatonin levels also control the distances between respiratory proteins in our mitochondria. If the level is low anywhere in the system % heteroplasmy rises and the ATPase of that mitochondria begins to spin slower than it should and electron chain transport slows in that tissue and damage occurs that can make that organ diseases. https://jackkruse.com/time-17-melatonin-insulin-solar-metronomes/
26 On an ordinary day over flat desert country, or over the sea, as one goes upward from the surface of the ground the electric potential increases by about 100 volts per meter. Thus there is a vertical electric field E of 100 volts/m in the air. The sign of the field corresponds to a negative charge on the earth’s surface. https://www.feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/II_09.html
27 Natural environments were associated with low frequency brainwaves and lower brain activity in frontal areas, indicating comfortable and subjectively restorative feelings.
