The Complete Beginner’s Guide to
Energy Manipulation Part 2
All physical and spiritual forces and all human and non-human consciousness are all manifestations of “Energy”.
It is this power, which said to be the ‘power of the gods’, that can be used to both heal and destroy.
It is this power which must be understood and harnessed to truly work with the Universe.
Welcome to Part 2 of the Complete Beginner’s Guide to Energy Manipulation, where we get down to the nitty gritty.
This will cover:
- Absorbing Energy
- Directing Energy
- Energy Meditation
- Cleaning Energy/Aura
- Abilities with Energy
The Universe is filled with energy.
Energy is all around us. Energy is in the air, food and water.
When we inhale in air, we also inhale in energy. This energy distributes into our lungs and provide us proper blood flow.
When we eat and drink water, we also get the necessary nutrients for the body to convert to energy. Simply, eat healthy and merrily and breathe in clean air.
We are already absorbing energy as we breathe. So let’s continue to breathe.
All breathing should be inhaled through the nose and out the mouth. This is because the hair follicles in the nose filters the bacteria and other harmful viruses in the air.
We naturally breathe with the diaphragm, which is above the stomach and below the chest.
Shallow breathing, which is from the chest, makes us more fearful. Deep breathing is more beneficial.
The stomach expands as we breathe in and contracts as we exhale.
For every breathe that you take in, you feel a sensation where your energy is moving up. For every breathe that you exhale, you feel a sensation where your energy is coming down.
You don’t have to do anything as you instinctively know how to breathe. So breathe naturally.
Now that you know how to absorb energy, it is time to direct them.
Energy is directed by awareness.
If you can imagine your attention like a cursor on a monitor screen, every move you make moves energy. Fixate your attention on what you want and you will crystallize the thought to direct energy there.
The whole point of directing energy is moving the energy to the point where you want it to be and then state the intention of what you want the energy to do.
Directing energy is a lot like shooting an arrow.
After absorbing energy, you direct the energy with what you want the energy to do to the area you want it to go.
- Relax yourself
- Focus on your fingertips
- Breathe naturally
You will soon notice the tingling sensation on your fingertips. This is because you directed your awareness to feeling your fingertips. If you were to direct it to your nose, you will also feel it there.
There is more to absorbing and directing energy. When you do that, you are only using the energy that you currently have.
The purpose of meditating on energy is to increase how energy come in and how much energy we can store. If your body is like a jar where water flows in, meditating on energy is like getting a bigger jar that can hold more water. Every one of us starts at level 1, a pint size jar.
As we increase our energy gauge, we can do more things with the energy we have.
Go into meditation. Then you want to breathe naturally while focusing on your diaphragm, your solar plexus. This is known as the Dan Tien. It is the area which stores all your energy.
Do not store energy in any other area of the body because it won’t be able to handle it. Only the Dan Tien can safely store energy.
- To gather energy, breathe through the nose, sink it down to your diaphragm so that you expand your belly.
- As you exhale through the nose, focus the energy in your Dan Tien.
In the previous post, I said that you are always interacting with the environment and that the environment is constantly influencing you.
Shielding protects you from unwanted energy in the environment.
Have you ever tried talking to someone only to feel that they put up a huge wall around them?
Some people unconsciously shield themselves so that they feel safe and protected, especially if they wish to hide their vulnerability.
Many people naturally use shielding when they don’t want to interact with someone or something. This includes being in a presence of a sad person, getting away from potential suitors but can’t leave for some reason, and psychologically distancing themselves from others.
But shielding also protects you from incoming energies so that you can be free of the environment’s influence, like anger or hostile energies.
Shielding is really psychologically distancing yourself. Since we go beyond psychology towards energy, we can block more subtle things. To shield with your energy, simply imagine yourself forming a shield against the energy you wish to be free of.
- Imagine being in a protection bubble
- Visualize a light of protection
- Picture a warrior shield in front of you
- Etc…(You are only limited by your imagination)
You are always interacting with the environment.
With that said, you will pick up unsuitable energy, you will have energetic residue, and you will have a dirty aura field which blocks you from awareness.
So why don’t we clean ourselves energetically?
It will help with energetic hygiene, recommended to use at the end of every day or every energetic use.
Our energy can be seen in layers around our physical body.
This is your Aura, or energetic field or bio-electrical field.
Have someone ever stand so close to you that it violates your “private circle”?
When someone steps into that circle, they are stepping a few inches away from you, but close enough to enter your Aura field.
And if someone is nervous or excited, you can be pretty sure to sense that.
Of course you don’t have to see Auras, you can already feel them.
This post will not get into the details of Aura, but know that your energy field is constantly active.
How to Clean Aura
At the end of the day, you collected yourself energy influences from here and there, where energetic residues rest on your energetic field.
For example, you hang around with a long-time buddy who bummed about his life and now you find yourself feeling sad about your life as well. Or you use your energy to heat to keep you warm, but you are still getting warmer and warmer.
You want to remove the stains so that you can be energetically fresh.
Most people naturally go to the shower to wash off an icky feeling when interacting with someone.
While you don’t need to take a physical shower, you can wash away the energy by imagining the energy dissipating from your body.
If not, you can always take a clean shower, go out into the sun for fresh air and sunlight, or use grounding as described in this guide.
Abilities with Energy
Here are some of the things you can do with learning energy.
Take them as a side-effect of your spiritual progress.
- Greater Health
- Martial Arts
- Certain powers
In Working with Energy
Much of Energy working involves Imagination, Awareness, Intention and Breathing.
You will know you have high energy when you generally feel good. And you will know you have low energy when you feel lethargic.
In the beginning, trust the process and it will come. Time will be your teacher.
Make it a part of your life and you will create the life you want with the energy you have.
