We all sense subtle energy, although we may not always realize it. People called clairvoyants are especially gifted with the ability to see subtle energy. And while it appears to be specific to them, the truth is we all possess this ability. It can be developed by anyone who takes the time to learn the skills necessary and to practice them.
Most of us may not see subtle energy, but we do sense its existence and respond to it on a daily basis. Much of our language even speaks to our unconscious experience of energetic states and events. Think about: “I feel blue,” “My heart is heavy,” “I feel so empty,” “It’s like I’ve been knifed in the back,” “I feel so full of joy,” “My heart is glad.” These are statements that are actually descriptive of your energy at that moment.
Biofeedback instruments show that the person who reports feeling blue is, in fact, emitting the frequency of energy our eye sees as blue. The person who reports feeling heavy or sad in the heart is actually experiencing a lower frequency of energy– one which is slower than that of joy or happiness. In addition to the lower frequency that person may also be experiencing a constriction of the flow of energy through the heart chakra area. Being able to sense your own energy allows you to apply the correct solution for the problem state.
Feelings Inform about Energy States
The statements two paragraphs above viewed through energetic eyes…
An inner sense of emptiness is depletion or lack of energy, this may be due to a block or constriction, or an issue of frequency, or the organs of the subtle energy system are not large enough to hold an optimal amount of energy.
Joy is a feeling of fullness of lighter, faster moving energy which is moving freely throughout the system.
The statement re: the knife in the back reflects an experience of negative thought or emotional energy being received from another person.
When we understand the reality of energetic interactions and dynamics we have a deeper perspective and self-knowledge as well as more effective options to work with our whole being- thoughts, feelings, sensations and beliefs- in order to shift out of negative states more quickly. In addition, being able to sense and manage our subtle energy allows us to maximize our efforts to create change and attract new possibilities into our lives.
Most people wait for time or external circumstances to change for relief or resolution of their issues. Unfortunately this creates a weak, dis-empowered position doing nothing to support proactively moving forward AND it does nothing to erase the effect the negative emotion has on your entire system which will have a ripple effect throughout one’s life.
Although a person may feel that the problem or emotional state has disappeared, what more typically happens is that it has been driven deeper into the system so that it is out of awareness but not necessarily out of range of affecting your future experience. To work on an energetic level with the totality of you is a major step on the road to empowerment and one that goes beyond learning new ways to simply THINK about things. It helps remove obstacles to true emotional freedom and affords greater access to higher level functions of creativity, intuition and spirituality.
