What is Energy?
“Energy” is an unseen force which permeates the whole of the universe.
It is a universal energy.
Despite the lack of measurable evidence for this force, anyone who has practiced with energy has a subjective experience of its reality with measurable outcomes.
No doubt that some of us are familiar with the Eastern concept of energy – “Chi”.
Throughout history, practitioners found different ways of harnessing “energy”.
Their approaches are varied from the cultures and religion they were born from:
- Chinese = Chi or Qi
- Japanese = Ki
- Sanskrit = Prana
- Greek = Pneuma
- Hawaiian = Mana
- Technical = Bio-energy, Subtle energy, and Primary energy
- Western = Orgone, Ether, Dark Matter, Odyle, Animal Magnetism, Vital Force, Entelechy, Hormic Energy, Libido Energy, Tachyon Energy
- Intuitive = Energy
- Other = Psychic energy, Magical energy, Universal energy
Now this “energy” is not the same concept of energy as used by modern science, E = Mc2.
It is what we come up with to explain the metaphysical causes. Sometimes there are no words to describe the causes and so we adopt the closest term we can find.
Since this term is the one that most everyone uses, we will continue with “Energy”.
What is Energy? It is…
- An unseen force
- Usually felt by warm or tingling sensation
- Accompanies a change in consciousness
- and allows willful control of our experiences
Principles of Energy
To work with energy, we need to know the basic principles to make it work.
Through trial and error, revelations or intensive study, energy practitioners have found certain principles to keep energy working.
Here are the 4 principles to keep in mind as you begin working with energy.
There is a force called “Energy”
The first thing we must do to begin working with energy is to become aware of its existence.
Energy is Everywhere
Behind every object and person is an atom and behind every atom is an energy.
Each of us act as a walking energy or a walking battery.
And everything has a specific type of energy or energy signature.
For example, the energy of the sun will have a different property than the energy of water.
Exposing yourself to the energy of the sun will give you warmth while water give you a cooling and healing effect.
Exposing yourself to certain people will make you anxious while others make you calm, even though you are distance away from them.
This is because of the energy people radiate and we can feel it.
We are all interconnected
As the environment influences our minds and behavior, so do We influence the environment.
Nothing is independent of one another.
We are all individuals.
Everything in the universe is separate from everything else. Rocks, the sun, people…etc.
We are our own individuality, yet we are all One as a whole.
This is an important paradox. Yet, truth is found in paradoxes.
Our consciousness is connected to the consciousness of the planet which is also connected to the universe.
And what the universe does affects the planet which affects us.
And thus, it is also that what we do affects the planet which affects the universe.
Energy is Neutral
Energy, like nature, knows no human laws or ethics. Indeed, it is intelligent but neutral.
Energy follows attention
Attention is awareness and energy follows awareness.
For example, right now you are reading this and not paying attention to your legs.
Now that you are aware of your legs, you can start moving them.
In energy work, giving attention is the same as giving energy.
Sensing your own Energy
Start with getting a feel of energy.
Remember how you feel when you are happy or grief with pain? Where do you usually feel it?
Find that part of you that feels the emotion, whatever emotion that may be. That part of you is your emotion. And where you feel your emotions is where you feel YOUR OWN energy.
This, however, only occurs when you are feeling an emotion.
At the baseline, you probably won’t feel anything. And that’s okay.
Sensing Energy in the Environment
When we touch something, we interact with it.
As the principle states, we are always interacting with the environment.
Touch is connection.
Go barefoot and touch the floor with your feet.
You will feel a different sensation for each type of floor and you may get a vibrational sense or, as for me it would be a sense of goosebumps, of whatever energy you feel.
For example, a rug will have a different sensation than a grass or a wooden floor. So we can say that the rug has a different energy than the grass or the wooden floor (You want to feel with your entire body, not just the textures of the floor).
You want to get a feel of the energy as you step into these different environments.
Now as you get better with sensing the energy of the environment, you can begin to sense the energy without having to physically touch the environment.
We can walk into the room and get a feel of what the energy of the environment is. For example, walking into a quiet tranquil place has a different feel, almost peaceful, than the work office. And the work office has a different feel than a public coffee shop. Public coffee shops can feel busy and rushed or peaceful depending on the environment.
Have you ever walked into an argument? You can feel the intensity in the air and it is very obvious.
But keep in mind that you are merely observing and not bringing your own emotions in the mix.
Forming an Energy Ball
Now that you learned to feel energy, you can begin to form energy.
The first thing is to Relax.
Sit or stand comfortably with hands resting on your thighs, palms down.
Inhale slowly with your diaphragm, which is below your chest but right above your stomach, and exhale slowly. Do so naturally and at your own pace.
The greater your relaxation, the more naturally you breathe at this area. If you notice yourself after a post workout and exhausted, you breathe here.
This is correct breathing. Before a baby is born and still in the mother’s womb, the baby breathes through the umbilicus without using its lungs. This was how the baby sustains and nourishes itself for 9 months prior to birth. This is also why infants and children are healthy and rapidly healing.
Our diaphragm naturally goes up and down while we breathe in and out. We don’t have to do anything but to be aware of our solar plexus or navel area as we breathe. The more relax you are, the easier and natural it is to breathe deeper. Do not consciously try to breathe deeply.
When you are relaxed, bring both your hands forward as if you are holding a ball with two hands. Your palms should slightly face each other.
Focus all of your attention on both your hands at the same time as you do this. You will begin to feel a warm sensation or a tingling sensation on both of your palms.
Now from your hands, imagine a ball of light between your hands. Feel this sensation. You have formed your own energy.
You may also notice that you don’t feel the tingling sensation on your hands anymore. This is because the energy is in between your hand and not on your hand.
If you didn’t get it the first time, rub your palms together for about 10 seconds or until you feel heat. That heat will accompany another sensation. Put your palms together as if holding a ball.
There should be a magnetic repulsion between your hands as if two magnets are pushing against each other.
To form energy you:
– put palms face together
– imagine a ball of energy and feel the sensation
Only perform this exercise when you are healthy and alert. Do not do this when you are sick or tired.
Whenever you feel anxious, dizzy, stressed or overwhelmed, it is likely due to your energy being depleted or out of control.
Grounding is refueling your energy. It is also where you expend your excess energy and to keep yourself in balance. You also illuminate all the energies you picked up from the environment.
Now how do we ground?
By using your imagination to get back in balance. There are many ways to do this. We will begin with grounding form.
Stand or sit comfortably. If you are barefoot and is touching the ground of the Earth, that will be even better.
Relax by breathing deeply in and out. Relax your entire physical body starting from head to face, to shoulders, arms, chest, stomach, hips, legs, and toes.
From your toes, imagine roots growing from your foot into the core of the Earth.
Here you can experiment with different imaginations to get to the point. For example, imagining your feet forming roots that stretch down into the Earth’s core or energy shooting into the core of the Earth.
It doesn’t matter how you do it just as long as you feel the same sensation when connected.
Feel the warmth of the Earth’s energy.
You will feel better after this exercise.
The Key to Energy Manipulation
The key is to feel.
This concludes part 1.
Practice these as you feel more competent for part 2, where we get into the practical application of energy manipulation.
