How To Feel The Energy Around You

Author: Diane Wing
Posted: June 30th. 2013
Times Viewed: 4,378

Energy is vast and pervasive. It is all around you, forcing you into a relationship with it. All interactions contain an energetic component. The unifying forces of the Universe are omnipresent in both living entities and inanimate objects. People, animals, situations, objects, and environments contain and give off energy. Energetic insight is a source of constant information, an intuitive knowing that increases self-confidence and removes the drama by seeing yourself, others, and situations objectively and accurately.

A natural ability: To encounter any of these things creates an energetic interaction. Everyone experiences these energetic exchanges, whether consciously or subconsciously. Because of this dynamic, it is possible to enhance understanding through insight into the energetic relationships that occur in the course of your daily routine and to perceive them objectively. What was once looked upon with emotion, fear, drama, doubt, worry, and guilt becomes pure when the underlying energetic pattern is revealed. As a result, decisions can be made and actions can be taken with a clear heart and mind. Enabling your natural ability to sense the vibrations that are constantly around you creates awareness of energetic shifts within the self and in circumstances outside the self.

Have you ever walked into a room and felt like you wanted to leave right away? Ever met a person for whom you had an instant dislike for no apparent reason? Been around certain people and suddenly feel exhausted? You have probably described a person or object as having “good or bad energy” or certain places as possessing “good or bad vibes.” We regularly use phrases such as “that resonates with me” and terms like “harmonious.” All of these references demonstrate that we are tuned in to the energy around us and we attempt to describe what we innately feel.

It is a natural instinct, our inherent sixth sense possessed by every human and animal on the planet to varying degrees. The majority of people are aware of the energy around them, albeit on a superficial level. This is a means of intuitive knowing; it is the familiar sense of comfort or discomfort when you walk into a room that indicates whether positive or negative energy, or a blend of the two, is within that space. The vibrations could emanate from a certain person or group of people, from within you, or from a particular room or overall physical structure.

Raising your energetic consciousness is to develop your natural intuitive ability and to open to a source of information that is constantly available to you. If you prefer the term psychic, it is simply the ability to perceive that which is beyond the five mundane senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, and tasting. And just like some people have a stronger sense of smell or extraordinary hearing, so do some have a stronger sixth sense. While there are inherent individual limitations to the ability, just as with the other senses, it differs from the other five senses in that it is beyond physical limitation and can be developed and enhanced. Also, there are times when energetic sensitivity manifests itself in the other five senses, such as being able to see an auric field or hear the activity of imprinted energies from a time long past. With heightened energetic consciousness, resistance is lessened, flow is increased, and the ability to understand and use energy in specific ways is enhanced.

Energy has no limitations; it can reach anywhere it intends to go. With each gesture, thought, intention, action, and interaction, you move energy. You can choose to be sensitive to the wealth of information contained in the ether around you, or to remain closed off from and unacquainted with your surroundings. By understanding and being consciously aware of the energetic impacts you create, it is possible to improve relationships, to avoid mishaps, and to understand Divine Will while developing a singularly strong will of your own. It is riding the energetic wave in the direction the energy is naturally flowing, the essence of Divine Will, rather than fighting against the current so as to achieve in an effortless way, to manifest, and to thrive in abundance. It is a way to come into your power.

Awareness is the key to understanding the nature of energy. Awareness enables you to influence the way your personal energy flows and the way we project it out into the world. With the ability to sense the forces moving within and between you, it is possible to understand the underlying aspects of a situation. Heightened sensitivity to these forces expands your ability to understand your feelings and reactions, as well as those of others. It also enables you to tap into the vast abundance of Universal Energy.

By increasing your energetic awareness, it is possible to observe energy patterns and consciously change their texture. The ether that moves around and through all things, animate and inert, reacts to your thoughts, feelings, and actions. It connects all things. You make imprints in the ether with your words, actions, thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, and thereby affect the outcome of all events that follow. The way individuals choose to think and behave not only influences them personally, but also affects the vibration of the entire planet and increasing awareness of the energy within and around you.

There are numerous methods that vary by culture, tradition, and belief system to enhance your ability to move and influence energy. I encourage you to try not only those mentioned here, but to continue your explorations through other systems of thought and belief, ultimately knowing which are best through your own intuitive voice. To empower yourself fully and increase your effectiveness, I recommend taking aspects of all systems that speak to you, combining them, and adding your personal touch to the mix. It is important that your energetic awareness includes the types of techniques and beliefs that resonate most closely with your vibrational patterns.

Understand that with each shift, the techniques you employ and the beliefs you hold will change. Before embarking on this avenue of exploration into the self, make the decision to be open to a new way of seeing and sensing the world around you. Energetic consciousness allows you to ride the wave of vibrations and follow them to new opportunities. Flexibility is one of the most important aspects of energy, since change is inevitable and resistance to change creates discord within and around you.

Source Energy: When considering the nature of energy, it is essential to ponder its source. The essence of this energy is a conglomeration of everything that is known and unknown, every thought, feeling, and action, every aspect of every type of being. It embodies every archetype, every representation of gods, goddesses, saints, and angels, as well as the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual expressions of all that is. It is the connecting force that binds us together and allows us to understand each other and to feel compassion for one another. If used to best advantage, Source energy fosters elegant interactions between plants and illness to affect a cure, between animals and their environments to foster harmonious relationships, between people to experience growth and enlightenment. When misunderstood or used to its detriment, pain, disharmony, anxiety, fear, doubt, and worry prevail.

The Source goes by many names: God, Infinite Spirit, The One, The Source of All That Is, and Universal Energy, to name a few. Every religion has its own name for this Source of Power. For now, suspend your preconceptions and religious notions of this energy and attempt to take a neutral position regarding its nature. Upholding the non-denominational quality of this text, we refer to this primary energy as Source. Source Energy has no gender, no malice, no love, and no impetus of its own. It connects all beings and things together so that each impacts the other. The attitude of the energy is neutral, having no attachment to outcomes, nor directing activity. Its nature changes as the beings that interact with it change. It holds vast amounts of information imprinted on it over time immeasurable.
