Energy is all around us. Just like breathing in air, we also take in energy. We are surrounded by a field of energy, contained within an egg-shaped skin or cortex, which is our personal energy field, also known as the aura. When we are born, our first connection is to the energies of the planet, the sun and the energies of our surroundings. Once we are connected to these energetic systems, we also take in air. A little time later we might take in liquids. Only months later do we start eating solids. These are the four foods of the ancients, known as the four elements, or fire, air, water and earth.
We are always exchanging energy with our surroundings. As we grow, learn and develop, we soon find out which energies are good for us and make us feel well and which are detrimental to our health and cause disease. Of course, this doesn’t mean that we are always doing what is best for our health; it only suggests that we soon find out the connection between thoughts and actions and their consequences.
Within the sphere of planet earth there are higher and lower energies; there are natural energies and there are energies manufactured by humans throughout the trace of history. The energies surrounding war, for example, are not natural, but once manufactured, they exist and influence our culture and our age. Likewise, high energies of human dedication, loyalty and generosity also exist and are there in the planet’s atmosphere to be connected to, processed and enhanced.
People tend to surround themselves with objects and energies that they like and that have a positive effect on them when they look at them. For example, putting up a photograph of one’s family on the wall can be a reminder of good times and of the endearment a person feels about their loved ones. We also go to places that energize us, whether it is a walk in nature, a meeting with a friend or going to see a good movie.
There are people whose energies are compatible with our own and those who might cause irritability, or sometimes even what would seem like an irrational feeling of hostility and dread. When we develop a relationship with someone, we form an energy field between us and within that field is stored the history of all our exchanges and feelings about each other. We might not remember every single incident that had occurred between us, but we can feel it, if we are sensitive to the energy worlds, every time we meet.
There can also be a powerful energy exchange between a therapist and their client. When a person shares their innermost feelings, thoughts, fears, hopes and desires, the energy that they connect to to divulge this information is powered with emotion. No matter how aloof, distracted or unbiased the therapist might be, he or she will inevitably absorb some of this energy and will need to process it out in order to be ready for their next client, in order to be able to give them full attention and the care they are due. It is also important for the therapist to be able to go home at night feeling free of other people’s concerns and woes. This can become difficult if a therapist is seeing many clients a day, one after the other. It is a known fact that in the world of psychologists and psychiatrists, as well as psycho-therapists, burn-out is a relatively common complaint.
It is very helpful for a therapist to understand the workings of the human energy anatomy template as well as to learn about simple techniques for clearing a space and getting rid of unwanted energies so that they can move from one client to another without bringing the energies of one client into the field of the other. This does not have to take a lot of time and some simple techniques are very easy to implement but can be rewarding when practiced with regularity. For example, ringing a bell will help disperse an atmosphere that has gathered in a room or office, while spritzing the place with essential oils, diluted in water, will bring freshness and release a natural fragrance into the air.
Nature is a great healer of all. The energy exchange between humans and trees, plants and wildlife can be beneficial to those who are seeking for relief from their hectic life in the city or from working in a crowded office. The natural pace that one becomes influenced by when surrounded by nature reduces the stress and pressure that life in the 21st century is prone to cause in a person involved in the daily struggle to survive.
All these techniques for clearing and cleaning a person’s energy field and the energy of the places where they live, work and sleep, have been developed over the centuries with the help of ancient knowledge that has been passed down to us through the ages from the times of ancient Egypt and from those who are often simply referred to as “the ancients.”
The work of EnergyWorlds and Energy Systems Therapy is now being applied in four modules which form the EnergyWorlds Practitioners Certification. These four modules are:
- Energizing Your Personal Energy Field
- Charging Your Soul
- Empowering Your Mind
- Liberating Your Spirit
For further understanding of these modules, the Human Energy Anatomy Template and its relationship with the EnergyWorlds, you are welcome to attend my pre-conference one day seminar and also my breakout session at the Canadian Energy Psychology Conference, October 2012.
