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.
We are already absorbing energy as we breathe.
So let’s continue to breathe. All breathing should be done through the nose.
Gathering energy is all in the breath.
You want to breathe the energy to your Dan Tien, the center of your body, on all four directions – front, back, left and right or front, back, top and down.
Now there are two types of breathing: normal breathing and “reverse” breathing.
This is the way we normally breathe.
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.
- 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, condense the energy in your Dan Tien.
Reverse Breathing, also known as Taoist Breathing, is the way we breathe before birth, when still in the fetus.
It is also the “Real” way to gather energy because of the principle of creation – male and female.
The energy is considered female and the “Real Dan Tien”, which is only found in this Reverse Breathing, is considered male.
Energy is created by mixing the principle of female and male, yin and yang. Come to think of it, all of creation is created in the same way.
*Only use this when you need more energy but do not practice more than 3 minutes. Be very cautious or the immense uncontrollable energy you’ve gathered will hurt you.
This starts out first by exhaling and then inhaling.
As you exhale, the stomach expands and the sensation feels upward.
As you inhale, the stomach contracts and the sensation feels downward.
- Exhale and let your stomach expand on all four sides.
- Inhale as you contract your stomach into your Dan Tien.
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 and empty your mind of any specific thoughts, just focus on your breath
- Imagine your goal and sense your emotions. Are you feeling a sense of sinking down or joy? If you feel unpleasant, then don’t fight it, acknowledge it and it shall go away.
- Visualize your end goal and visualize you doing it within your usual day.
- Project it out into the world
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.
- Imagine that everything is energy and you will realize that everything is, in truth, energy.
- Relax and take deep breaths.
- Imagine the space that you are in disintegrating into energy, of tiny little particles, even yourself.
- Submerse yourself into the ocean of energy. This ocean of energy is pure consciousness. The whole of the Universe is but an ocean of energy in different frequencies.
- Sit silently in this state.
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.
But shielding also protects you from incoming energies so that you can be free of the environment’s influence, like anger or hostile energies.
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
- imagine a light of protection
- imagine a warrior shield in front of you
- Etc…(You are only limited by your imagination)
The key here is to state your intent as you imagine this.
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.
How do you clean your aura?
Snowing Light Meditation
- Sit in meditation.
- Imagine a spark of light falling down on you like snow.
- Every spark of light snow cleanses the body as it touches.
- Every spark of light snow purifies your aura and repairing your inner wounds.
Remember this meditation because it will be the most important meditation in spiritual practices.
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.
- Conversing with Nature
- Longevity in Health
- Summoning Elements (Aerokinesis, Pyrokinesis, Telekinesis)
- “Divine Working”
- Sexual Power
- Martial Arts
In Working with Energy
Much of Energy working involves Imagination, Awareness, Intention and Breathing.
Light is the strongest form of energy, therefore, imagining light is gathering the strongest of energy.
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.
