Energy is a huge subject. We interpret the word in many ways and experience what energy is in our bodies, our thoughts and our emotions. We also experience energy blocks.
Energy by its very nature is never destroyed but only transformed. When we are interested in our own personal transformation, it is helpful to know what is going on with the energy at play within us and around us.
There are four kinds of energy i will be addressing today; each with their specific properties. Each kind of energy promotes more and more consciousness in us as it refines. It refines by our own inner work and struggle to be free of suggestibility and mass hypnosis.
The first kind of energy I am discussing is vital energy which keeps our bodies running. When we lose vital energy, we experience sickness and fatigue. This is the kind of energy that keeps our body running smoothly and our heart beating. It is what allows cuts to heal and muscles to produce lactic acid. There is no consciousness on our part to make this energy active.
The next gradation of energy is called automatic energy and by its very name suggests no effort on our part. This is the energy at play as we live our lives on autopilot without awareness of ourselves or others. We have the impression we are making choices and understanding other people, but what is actually happening is our system of memory retrieval, analysis based on those memories, and emotional feedback based on identification with those thoughts. Automatic energy in our lives allows us to breed and feed, live, work etc without any sense of ourselves as a sensitive human.
With work on ourselves, we have the chance to upgrade this energy to sensitive energy in which we are able to observe ourselves. No self observation can occur without the influence of sensitive energy. We build and increase the energy frequency by small daily struggles with being present. We meditate. We strive to question what is going on in and around us with new eyes by bringing in intentional sensation while we do things. We attempt to align our three centers, the thinking, the feeling and the moving in order to gain a new perspective.
This new sensitivity brings about self awareness and understanding of our negative states, our fear and our insecurities. We start to catch ourselves in the act of believing our limiting beliefs from a new place.
Sensitive energy allows us to see something about ourselves that we could not see before.
If we remain divided and operating only from one center, mainly our thinking, we are only operating under certain limited laws of existence. It is a very low grade of energy. If we can start bringing in sensation on a regular basis, we are combining two of our centers. This is often referred to as two centers ganging up on the third.
Often when we find we are in our body and our thinking in the same time, something miraculous happens with our emotions. The more this happens the more sensitive the energy becomes and we start to see!
The more efforts we make of this kind the more the energy begins to transmute and we begin to experience real freedom. We start to choose not to get wrapped up in our daily dramas. We start to have healthy boundaries. We begin to act authentically.
This is the realization that a higher energy is afoot, an energy called conscious energy. With enough pooled conscious energy, we have the chance to acquire permanent change. We are able to forgive ourselves and others. We allow our hearts to open and remain open. We are able to enact life from our Being.
Let me know what your experience is regarding energies. What do you notice about how much energy you have to do your inner work. How does energy read in your body? What is the energy of thought?
Have a great week.
