Many years ago when I first I embarked on a spiritual journey I believed that the development of the upper chakras and the spiritual energies was the ultimate goal to strive for in any given lifetime. Time and experience showed me something different! I had issues with anxiety, boundaries and the full expression of some emotions like appropriate anger (spiritual people don’t get angry! ) Fortunately I had teachers who were able to show me the “error of my ways” and I went on to live with more balance, less stress, greater freedom of movement and happiness!
Fully Human: Electrical and Magnetic Energy
Everything in our universe exists on a continuum of the electromagnetic energy spectrum. This includes human beings! We embody both electrical and magnetic energies and these form the foundation for our various abilities, capacities and functions.
The electrical portion of our nature is generally associated with our higher level functions such as creativity, intuition and the pure awareness of our spiritual nature. Our spiritual nature is the part that experiences life without analyzing, judging or labeling. It is the aspect that we seek to access and develop through meditative or spiritual disciplines. Soul and spirit are both within this province.
Magnetic energy is that which resonates at the frequency of the Earth. This aspect is associated with our basic physical vitality, life in the body and orientation to time and space. Generally magnetic energy provides us with abilities that have to do with the physical world.
Each of our cells has an electrical component that is surrounded by a magnetic field. The magnetic field has been described as that which binds our soul to the earthly realms. Hence the expression: “We are spiritual beings having a human experience” appears to be true at a cellular level!
All aspects of ourselves and our composite nature are important. If we are to truly express and live our full potential we need to have a balance and capacity to express all our energies, not to overdevelop one at the expense of the other.
