Everything around you is energy, from the smallest particles to the largest galaxies. Energy is constantly moving and changing form. It is the fundamental building block of the universe.
Just think about it, the clothes you wear to the chair you sit on to the air you breathe is composed of energy.
Our bodies are made up of energy, and we are constantly exchanging energy with our environment. We absorb energy from the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the people we interact with. We also release energy through our thoughts, emotions, and actions.
Our physical bodies are made up of energy. Every cell in our body is vibrating at a certain frequency. When our energy is balanced and flowing freely, we feel healthy and energized. However, when our energy is blocked or stagnant, we may experience physical problems, such as fatigue, pain, and illness.
Our thoughts and emotions also affect our physical energy. When we are stressed, anxious, or angry, our energy levels drop and our bodies become more susceptible to illness. On the other hand, when we are happy, relaxed, and grateful, our energy levels rise and our bodies are better able to heal themselves.
Our emotions are a form of energy. When we feel happy, excited, or angry, our bodies vibrate at different frequencies. These different frequencies can have a positive or negative impact on our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.
Empathy is a valuable gift that allows us to connect with others on a deeper level. It is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. When we are empathetic, we are able to sense the energy of the other person. This can be helpful in building relationships and understanding the world around us. However, it is important to be aware of our own energy boundaries and to protect ourselves from taking on the negative energy of others.
The relationships that we have with others have a profound impact on our energy. It is important to surround ourselves with positive and supportive people who lift us up and make us feel good about ourselves. We should also avoid people who drain our energy or make us feel bad about ourselves.
Remember, experiencing the emotions of others is as natural to our body as breathing. We are wired for connection, and many of us were never taught how to differentiate our personal experience from that of another person.
Think of a time when the negative emotions of another person affected your mood. Have you ever had a colleague or friend enter your space and fill it with colorful remarks conveying frustration and anger? In pursuit of venting or catharsis, that person may slander another, spread rumors, and undermine another’s credibility. You, being a good listener, start to feel her pain and also unconsciously begin to take on his or her negative emotions. While your friend or colleague may leave the conversation feeling relieved and grateful to you for listening, you, on the other hand, are experiencing the residual effects of your conversation, namely frustration and anger.
Now step back for a second—what just happened? As mentioned earlier, your body is a sponge and it absorbs the emotions of other people. In this example, your body absorbed your coworker’s frustration and anger even though you didn’t directly experience this situation. What happened is your body is doing what it is trained to do—feeling the energy around it and trying to make sense of what it is experiencing.
When you took on your friend’s emotional energy, you were feeling foreign energy—energy that is not a part of your body’s physical life experience. In other words, you were becoming the effect of someone else’s emotional experience. This happens all the time, but it is not healthy for your body, especially if you don’t release this foreign energy.
If you experience this situation routinely, then your “friend” might be an energy vampire. You see, energy vampires are people who take our energy without giving anything back. They may be negative, complaining, or critical. They may also be needy or demanding. It is important to be mindful of our energy boundaries and to avoid spending too much time with energy vampires.
Remember what we said at the beginning? Everything in the universe is energy and it vibrates at a certain frequency. The higher the frequency, the more positive and uplifting the energy. The lower the frequency, the more negative and draining the energy. We can raise our own vibration by spending time in nature, listening to uplifting music, and surrounding ourselves with positive people.
We are all in charge of our own energy. We can choose to focus on positive energy or negative energy. We can also choose to protect ourselves from the negative energy of others. By understanding and working with energy, we can improve our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
I hope this additional information is helpful.
