The word “energy” comes from the Greek word energeia. It combines two words: en, meaning “in” or “inside”, and érgon, meaning “work”. It is translated as “activity”, “strength to execute action”, or the “ability to do work”. This is a physical approach as physics deals with energy, investigating its quantitative properties through science. There is, however, another angle from which we can explore energy, and this is from a metaphysical level. Here energy is understood as an intangible and modifiable force, often described in positive and negative terms, which is emitted by people, places, and objects. It can be transmitted and exchanged in interactions.
What does energy consist of?
Metaphysics has found that the smallest elements of the universe are fundamental particles characterised by different vibrations. All these particles are made of tiny packages of energy called strings. According to string theory, everything in the universe consists of small vibrating strings (chains, or cords) of energy. This indicates we, and everything around us, is pure energy.
Why are interactions important?
All interactions between people are also energy interactions. Anything that happens to a given object or being leaves an impact on that object or being. Everything is influenced by the behaviour it is subjected to. In other words, all behaviours or actions produce and influence other behaviours or actions. To better understand this phenomenon, let’s use an example from the field of quantum physics. The famous Single-Particle-Double-Slit Experiment, is one of the most stunning illustrations that the quantum world is very different than the large scale, physical, everyday world we are used to. When, during the experiment, a large number of particles were shot out one at a time at a board with two slits on it, an interference pattern (wave light behaviour) was formed on the other side. Interestingly, when observers measured which slit each individual particle was going through, the interference pattern (wave light behaviour) changed to a standard distribution pattern (particle light behaviour). If the mere act of observing a particle leads to changes in its behaviour, you can begin to understand the power of consciousness over matter.
How does energy connect with the brain?
Neuroscience shows that all experiences we are subjected to, create various neural connections in the brain. These in turn evoke specific emotions in us. Depending on which connections are stimulated at a given time, some become stronger, others get weaker. This is known as neuroplasticity. So, whatever we do, we physically modify our brain.
Everything that we are subjected to triggers chemical reactions in the brain (such as the release of stress or happiness hormones). Thus, according to neuroscience, emotions are the result of reactions in the brain, and these can be largely controlled by thoughts and actions. Following this path, positive thinking affects our life in a positive way, while negative thoughts evokes negativity.
Returning to energy, the brain, which is our internal computer and command centre, also consists of energy and, with its complexity, reacts in the same way as other elements of the universe. Thoughts play an extremely important role in energy processes – both consciously and subconsciously. Where the mind goes, the energy follows.
When we change the direction of our thoughts by developing a higher awareness, transforming our beliefs, or changing our opinions about something, the energy around us changes too. This causes changes not only in the perception of what is happening, but also in the life experiences themselves.
What is low and high-energy frequency?
Everything in the universe is composed of energy vibrating at different frequencies. Every thought we have, every belief we hold, every emotion we experience, and every action we take creates vibrations of energy.
The frequency at which we operate, “tunes in” to the thoughts and feelings that accompany us at a given moment. These come from our values, conditioned beliefs, and the experiences that have shaped us until this moment. Energy is an internal vibration. What we feel inside, we reflect outside. If we are accompanied by negative thoughts, we naturally tend to be nervous, fearful, and anxious. Furthermore, we project these emotions into the future, entering a low-energy frequency, which in turn attracts events that were the subject of our fears, or similar to them. This is known as emitting negative energy.
However, if we look at the world in from a positive point of view, we automatically raise our energy vibrations, making us attract situations, people, and events also with higher, more positive vibrations. What we are putting out, we are attracting back. Whatever we attract is what resonates best with our mental-emotional constitution at that given moment.
That is why it is so important to achieve the coherence of thoughts and feelings, as this is the key to a positive energy vibration.
Fortunately, we also possess the power to control our vibrations through consciously-enhanced mind and body techniques.
What are chakras?
The word “chakra” comes from Sanskrit (the sacred language of Hinduism) and means a wheel, circle, disc, or centre. In short, chakras are seven energy centres throughout our body where energy channels intersect and concentrate. Chakras are the hubs of your energy management: they receive it, transform it, and transmit it onward. They are located along the central channel of the body from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
