Energy Field

Energy series – an introduction post

We have been talking a whole lot about psychology because I’m a firm believer that there is a LOT to improve by understanding the mind and trying to make it work better for you.

But today buckle your belts: we are about to get “hippie” here. If you are a more rational person, you might feel uncomfortable. Try to be open to the possibility that learning about the subject might be less terrible than you anticipated. But if you still don’t feel like it, I’m letting you know in advance what will all the next posts be about at the end of this one… ok? You can skip them.

So here is the information I received a few years ago on the energetic alignment course: we have four – one might put it this way – layers.

The theme we were discussing was: diseases. What the master explained back then is that everything first happens in your energy field, then it moves to your mental plane. When you still can’t solve it in your mental plane, it flows to your emotional plane. Well, if it remains with no resolution, it finally installs itself in your body as a disease. But this is not just for diseases. Actually, anything in your life might go through this process.

She never talked about existing a “feedback”, but I’m assuming there is. Like a rock in a river: the rock eventually flows where the river goes, right? But it also “impacts” the water that is really close to it, in contact with the stone. The water that surrounds the stone has to “adapt” to the rock matter. But in the end, the water is so much bigger… 

The metaphor I’m trying to build is: in a sense, energy is everything. But yeah, if you start planting your flags in other areas, YOU WILL IMPROVE YOUR LIFE. As an example, if you deal with the mental plane, you will also affect energy. If you take care of your body, you will impact the emotions. Do you know what I mean? Start wherever you want and feel comfortable with making the first steps. That’s why the image below has an arrow coming and going.

What would you change in your life if you started taking into consideration all of those aspects?

Is this true?

I don’t know. No scientific explanation was given to me back then, but it made sense. At least by pointing out that more things were happening than we could necessarily feel with our senses or understand with our minds.

More recently, in my Advanced meditation retreat with Dr. Joe Dispenza, I came across the story of Harold Saxton Burr, a professor of Anatomy at Yale University School of Medicine and researcher into bio-electrics. His research confirmed at least two things: 1) There is, in fact, an energy field, and 2) This field affects matter.

“In his book The Fields of Life (1973), Burr used the analogy of the iron filings with which I played as a child. If you shake the iron filings off the paper and add new ones, they arrange themselves into the same patterns as the discarded ones. It is the field that is organizing the filings; the field is not being produced by the filings. Burr wrote: “Something like this . . . happens in the human body. Its molecules and cells are constantly being torn apart and rebuilt with fresh material from the food we eat. But, thanks to the controlling [life]-field, the new molecules and cells are rebuilt as before and arrange themselves in the same pattern as the old ones” (Burr, 1973, pp. 12–13). […] Energy is not an epiphenomenon of matter; energy is organizing matter.”

Excerpt From: Dawson Church. “Mind to Matter.” 

Well, if the energy affects matter we might take care of it too… wouldn’t you agree? And that’s why we are about to do a sequence of posts on the methodologies to do that.

There are A LOT of techniques to handle and improve your energy. I don’t have the goal nor the ambition to present them all or tell which one is best. 

I just felt it was a good moment to share the methodologies I’ve learned a little more about: Reiki, Meditation, Fogo Sagrado – Energetic Alignment, and Access Consciousness Bars®.

I’m on a journey, and I’ll probably have more to share anytime soon. For now, I’ll see you in the next post about Reiki. But first, how about leaving me a comment about how do you feel about energy healing methodologies?
