Life is an energetic encounter. Energy is everywhere and every moment of the day we encounter energy. We are energy interacting with energy. It is not usual for most of us to think of ourselves or our lives in this way. Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2 tells us that all matter and the means by which matter interacts are all manifestations of energy. Everything is energy of one sort or another sort and we all feel energy.
We make sense of our external world by means of our senses. Our senses are filtering and assessing information that comes in our direction. The light from the world around us enters our eyes, and that information touches the retina and is relayed to the brain. This information is then interpreted by the brain. Sound waves enter the ear and are converted into electrical signals that travel along the auditory nerve to the brain. This information is also interpreted by the brain. Our sense of touch will give us information on texture heat, type of material and general quality and much more of any object. We are energy and any given object is energy and when we touch something or something touches us it is nothing but an encounter of two energy types interacting. It does not matter whether that touch is physical or emotional it is all energy interacting in one way or the other with energy. All encounters are nothing but one energy type making sense of the other or one giving or exchanging information with the other. The bottom line is energy interacts with energy. There are waves of many kinds interacting with us all of the time. We are constantly receiving electromagnetic waves such as TV signals and radio signals.
There is a subtle, naturally occurring electromagnetic energy that exists both inside and outside of ourselves that we interact with. This energy is called Chi, Ki, Prana and Psychic energy. It is all the same thing just known by different names. We can feel this energy and we can draw this energy into our body at will. Our body will draw this subtle energy in all of the time sub-consciously and we can do so consciously at will also. This energy is not entirely understood but it is known to be in existence and we know it impacts the body.
Gary Schwartz in the book “The Energy Healing Experiments,” explains that he did experiments with many people as he wanted to know if we all feel energy. The results of those experiments show that we all feel energy even if we think we do or not. In his experiments he had people that were blindfolded exposed to the energy of another person first on one hand and then on the other hand randomly. The experiments showed that we all feel energy and we all have an idea of where and when we are feeling that energy to some degree. Some people are supersensitive to it and other people are less sensitive to it. However we all feel it and it impacts our physical health and well-being.
What is energy manipulation?
We can all manipulate this energy. We do so subconsciously without knowing we do for the most part. We continually interact with subtle energy all of the time. There are many holistic healing methods that stimulate the subtle energy system. Reiki, acupuncture and cranial sacral therapy all employ various methods to stimulate the subtle energy system to bring about health and well-being within the person.
Subtle energy has many uses. It can help to heal the body and the emotions it can also help us to activate the chakra points on the body. By stimulating or activating the chakra points we can keep our body in balance and harmony thus aiding well-being of the emotions and the body in general. This is what the meditations seek to achieve in “Nourish the Flame Within”. Awareness of energy in the chakra areas builds our relationship with energy within the body. By placing our awareness on particular chakra points, we can influence the flow of energy within the body, leading to interaction with the world around us as well as within us. We can also flood the body with subtle energy using Reiki therapy. By flooding the body in this way with subtle energy we saturate the body allowing it to take what it needs and expel what it has no use for. Thus the Reiki therapist does not need to know where the problem lays within the body just that there is a problem and by giving the body an abundance of what it needs it will be more able to find its own balance in a short time.
We can also flood the body with energy by doing certain physical exercises. The practice of Chi Kung and martial arts for example that have been done by eastern people such as the Chinese for many centuries exploit this knowledge. Within this practice exercises are done in sequences for the most part to stimulate the subtle energy to flow along the meridian lines of the body. The meridian lines are energy pathways through the body by which it is believed that the subtle energy flows.
As well as exercises and therapy we can also make energy move by using our will or our minds. This takes a little practice and belief and understanding of the reality of this ability that is within us all. Once the person accepts this as a truth they will be willing to put in the small amount of practice to enable them to feel this energy consciously and make it move.
What are the steps for creating energy?
We cannot create energy nor destroy it; we can simply alter the form it takes. Everything within the universe (and that includes everything on the earth) is energy. However we can have an influence on the energy flow. For energy to flow anywhere the correct conditions must be in place. There must be a free pathway for the energy to flow into. This is true of all energy not just subtle energy. We can harness subtle energy and manipulate it by various methods. As I said earlier various therapy methods and exercise practices will enable the energy to flow freely and in abundance for good health and well-being. The bottom line is for free flow of energy throughout the body one has to either flood the body or manipulate the body or the energy system in some way to make it move. The ideal state with regards to energy flow within the body is free flow and movement of energy.
