What is “Energy”?- Subtle Energies from People, Places, Things

What do we mean by "Energy"?

Energy is the engine of action, substance of connection, and blueprint for existence for all of Creation.  (“Smart glue that moves things”??)  Even "Science" is now accepting that all of the Universe is made of energy (as in Einstein’s theory, E=mc2) and even “empty” space is really filled with energy.  While no one really knows exactly what energy is, we can seek to understand it by observing it.  If we are trying to do that only with electro-mechanical instruments or even just our five senses, we are missing too much of its nature.

One the one hand, energy is all power, cannot be created or destroyed, has always existed, and moves into form, through form, and out of form and can be in more than one place at a time.  Nothing in the Universe happens without energy being involved.  (Sounds like a description of, umm -- God, doesn't it?)  It is also multi-dimensional, holographic, has consciousness and even “personality” of a sort, and seems to “remember”.  All energy is vibrating, moving to and fro in a continuous repetitive cycle.  The more cycles completed in one second, the higher the frequency.  When its vibration slows down enough, energy becomes physical matter but vibration remains in the subatomic particles.

If you take the energy anatomy of water as an analogy:

Take energy away from water by cooling it and its vibration slows down until it becomes solid matter-- ICE!  If you add heat to ice, you speed up its vibration and it changes form back into liquid water.  If you continue to add heat energy and increase the vibration of the water it will boil, turn into steam and disappear.  But wait!  If you put a glass of ice water nearby, the steam will give up energy and the water will condense and reappear on the outside of the glass.  Rapidly vibrating steam is invisible to the naked eye and seems weightless.  You can see both water and ice and feel their heaviness.  You can push the dense matter of your hand right through steam or water but not a block of ice.  As the vibration of matter becomes slower it becomes more physically solid.  If its vibrational frequency increases, it becomes less and less dense until it becomes etheric.

The belief system called “Science” is also finally catching on to what Shamans and indigenous cultures around the world have always known-- that all energy has Consciousness (awareness of being aware) or Spirit and comes from a single Source.  Experiments with subatomic physics have shown that light and other energies react to Human consciousness and change their appearance or behavior as a result of its influence.  Physical light behaves as a particle when we're directly observing it and a wave when we're not.  It “knows” we’re looking at it and reacts to our attention!

We can also influence some of the energies of physical matter with our minds through focused intention and attention, like programming crystals for instance.  This change may be harder to measure but Dr. Masaru Emoto has shown through his photographs of water crystals how our thoughts and emotions can affect water’s energy and influence it’s physical form.  Some predict that we will one day be able to use the energy of our thoughts to co-create with the energy that determines the physical structure of matter and create real physical objects just by thinking about them.  Yogi Sai Baba has been reported to have materialized dusty “sacred ash”, jewelry and other small objects by focused thought alone.

The more subtle Spiritual, Healing, Inter-dimensional, and Life Force energies have a higher (faster) vibration and require a shift of our learned and habitual perception for us to sense, register, and interpret.  Sometimes referred to collectively as “Light” (with a capital ‘L’— the higher dimensional Spiritual consciousness energy within visible light), they are much finer and higher in frequency than the more material light, heat, sound, etc.  It is harder for us to perceive high-vibrational energies because of our own relatively low-vibrational perception.  We’ve evolved to be more adept at perceiving matter and slower energies than pure high vibration.

There is a hierarchy of vibration in the Universe.  The highest, fastest vibration is Love or God/Source-- that which divided itself into all of Creation.  If we were to experience the full high vibration of The Creator it would literally overload our molecular and Spiritual circuits and blow us apart.  The Creator insures that Source energy is slowed down one step at a time to a frequency that our physical plane metabolism can withstand.  It's part of the job of Spirit and Nature Beings to make higher energies usable for Humanity and our chakras (subtle energy centers in our body) do this for us on the individual level.  We can attune and prepare our minds and bodies to function as high-volume conduits or conductors for these extremely healing and restorative energies by training as Energy Healers.  You can also use objects like crystals, pendulums, and our Mesa Creative Arts Tools for Transformation and Healing to bring through these frequencies.

Here's what the energy frequency hierarchy looks like.  At the Top are Spiritual Energies:

  • Love/God/Source is the highest vibration in the Universe.
  • Love slowed down yields thought:
  • Thought slowed down yields feelings:
  • Feelings slowed down yields magnetism:

Now come the Physical Energies:

  • Magnetism is the fastest vibration of physical energy.
  • Magnetism slowed down yields electricity:
  • Electricity slowed down yields light:
  • Light slowed down yields heat:
  • Heat slowed down yields sound:
  • Sound slowed down yields matter.

Some say God sang all of the Souls into existence with our own individual “creation song”.  The greatest difference between light, sound, and matter is frequency, the speed of vibration.  There is also a difference between them in consciousness, as the “knowing”, awareness, and overall Spiritual purpose of each is specific.

Most of us are able to feel all of the energies in the Physical range.  Some people have learned/remembered how to feel the Spiritual ones.  Just because the Human eye cannot see ultraviolet light or Human ear cannot hear a dog whistle, does that mean that those energies do not exist?  Just because no meter has been invented yet to detect the Life Force that makes protoplasm “alive”, does that mean it isn’t there?  What about experiments that show that a body loses a tiny amount of weight when the Soul leaves at death?  There are reports that some monks have already found ways to live on the Prana (Life Force) present in the air without partaking of food, water, or sleep for months at a time.  Look at it this way:

If you were sitting on the runway in an old propeller driven airplane looking out the window toward the control tower, your view might be blocked by a blade of the huge, dense propeller on the wing.  (Resting at zero cycles per second rotation.)  As the motors were started and the propellers turned faster and faster (Thousands of rotations per second!), you’d be able to see the tower right through the rotating blades.  They'd just “disappear” as their speed exceeded the tracking ability of your eyes.  Just because they became "in-visible", does that mean they no longer exist?  All you'd have to do is put your hand into one to receive the full impact of their energy and find out that they are just vibrating faster than your brain can perceive!

We Human Beings are made up of a multidimensional mix of vibrating energies.  We take in physical energy from our food, water, and our physical environment and emotional and mental energy from people, the Media, living spaces, and mass consciousness.  We take in and give out Life Force energy through our breath and our chakras.  We are constantly being maintained, created, and recreated by Spiritual energy from our Higher Selves, our Soul, and That which created us at our very beginning.  These energies make up the foundational fabric of our physical body and higher (Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual) bodies, comprise the patterns of our thoughts and emotions, and circulate in our multilayered energy systems.  Etheric blueprints comprised of the highest Spiritual energy are the very organizational templates of what and who we are.  If they were withdrawn, we would simply cease to Be.

These remarkable energies are as necessary for sustaining Life as food and water.  When they are out of balance, distorted, missing, or in excess we get unhealthy in some way.  When we become conscious of these energies, we can make better use of them to create better health for ourselves and our planet.

Your own personal vibration is really a chorus of the many vibrating systems and channels within you and is affected not only by what you eat and drink, but also by how you think and feel.  Other people and your environment affect your Being's energy systems when absorbing energy from them directly, by resonance (frequency matching) or entrainment (when part of your system is induced to match a stronger outside vibration).

All human beings are "hard-wired" to take in and use subtle and Spiritual energies as well as the more physical ones yet most people do it largely without even knowing it.  Relatively few adults perceive them but many children still do because they have not yet been fully “trained” to sensually ignore them.  Short of seeing auras (energy fields around the Human body) or hearing Spirit Guides, you’ve likely sensed differences in energy many times in your life but paid it little attention or took it for granted.

Have you ever:

  • Eaten food that felt “dead”?
  • Known that the Moon was full without seeing it first?
  • Walked into a motel room or restaurant and it just felt creepy/dense/rough/heavy, so you left?
  • Walked into a second place that looked pretty much the same but felt lighter/happier/smoother, so you stayed?
  • Walked into a room after people had just stopped arguing and could “feel it” in the air?
  • Felt someone looking at you?
  • Felt the presence of a deceased relative?
  • Sat in a circle of strangers and noted that each one felt different to you somehow?  (Happier, sadder, angrier, more joyful, vibrant, dull, or “out to lunch”)

These are common experiences with subtle energies from people, places, and things.  There are many ways to develop your sensitivity to these energies and it all starts with awareness.  This awareness begins with sensing your own presence, your own “I’m-sitting-right-here-ness”.  With that as a reference point you can begin to notice how the feeling of your own Life Force changes as a result of outside influences and from your own thoughts and emotions.

Energy’s job is to make things happen, and for that to occur it needs to be in constant motion, circulating freely within us as well as coming and going from outside of us.  The less Spiritual we are, the denser and slower our personal vibration.  The more we connect with the Spiritual, the lighter we are and faster we vibrate.  We Human Beings are meant to be fluid like water, not dense like ice.  If we fill up on the slow energy of low vibrational food, negativity, fear, and doubt our body’s energy will become denser and may even “freeze” here and there into semi-permanent blockages.  If we raise our vibratory rate by cleaning our bodies and investing our hearts and minds in Love, Trust, and Compassion, we become like steam; “enlightened” and closer to the etheric world of Spirit.
