PAUL LENDA & CHRISTIE SHELDON: “16 Ways to Bring Positive Energy Into Your Life”

9d69c2541dcc5a3ec6ab740b3cd65f26.jpg

You’ve felt it.  You’re in a group of people, and somebody walks in with a black cloud hanging over their head.  Their energy repels you, and you may find your own mood affected by it.  So how can you NOT be one of those people?  We all have bad days, but with a few simple tricks, you can avoid letting that black cloud grow and hover over you.

1.  Do not dwell on the negatives.

Stuff happens.  It’s how you respond that matters.  If you choose to be victimized by what happens, your negative energy will gain momentum.  Instead:

 —Stop thinking about it if there’s nothing you can do to improve it  (if a thought comes up about that situation, do not allow it to continue — force yourself to think about something else).

 —Do not talk about it anymore than you absolutely have to.  Don’t give it energy!

 —Find the blessings and lessons in the situation.  This may take some time, but if you stay busy looking for them, you won’t dwell on how something negatively impacted you.

2.  Do not speak of your problems, diseases, illnesses or worries.

The more energy you give what is wrong, the more it persists.  Yes, we all need to vent once in a while but if you vent, or even when you’re just thinking about what’s wrong, here are some rules:

 —Don’t think or say: “I’m so sick, I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck!  I don’t know how I’m going to get through the week!”  Do think or say: “I caught some bug but I’m taking good care of myself and I’m feeling better every day!”

 —Don’t think or say: “This job is terrible! My boss is a jerk and nobody appreciates me!”  Do think or say: “I’m looking for a better job and meantime I’m trying to learn as much as I can so I benefit. In fact, my boss is the perfect example of how not to treat employees!”

3.  Love and accept yourself.  As you are.  NOW.

It’s easy to beat yourself up about what’s wrong, but how much energy do you give to your positive qualities?  Do that more.  For every negative comment you make about yourself, give yourself FIVE compliments.

4.  Let go of the past.

You can’t undo anything.  It’s done.  Forgive others, forgive yourself… learn from your mistakes, learn from others’ mistakes, remember that NO unkind or thoughtless action ever comes from love but from a place of deep inner pain  (you can be compassionate to that pain without condoning the acting out of the pain) and release the energetic burden you carry: grudges, resentments, pain, hurt, disappointments, sadness, anger, guilt… let it all go.

5.  Don’t give away your power or your happiness.

Remember that when you criticize, judge or blame others, you are choosing to focus on what they’re doing wrong or what’s wrong with them — and you give these people the power to control your mood and state of mind.  Ask yourself why somebody’s behavior irritates you so much that you allow yourself to get upset about it.  Why let others’ behavior affect your mood?  Why give them the power to control your happiness?  Instead of criticizing, judging or blaming, find something you can compliment them on.

6.  Do not say yes when you mean no.

Honor your needs, priorities, time and energy!  You’ll resent it.  Save your precious time and energy for things that are meaningful to you, or in instances where others ask you to do something, make sure that it brings you satisfaction and joy.  Otherwise, politely decline.

7.  Laugh!  Smile! 

Surround yourself with upbeat people who make you laugh.

8.  Be grateful.

Appreciate the many blessings, but also appreciate the struggles and frustrations.  How have you become enriched because of them?

9.  Don’t worry.

Use your imagination to visualize what can go right, instead of what can go wrong.  Train yourself to visualize the best-case scenario.  Be solution-oriented, not problem-oriented.  Think only about the ideal situation, not the current problematic situation.

10.  Run it off.

Exercise physically removes you from your problems, and it also removes you mentally.  If you’re worried about something, you need to give your brain a chance to process things.  Exercise will flood your system with feel-good endorphins, release stress and in the middle of a long bike ride, walk or swim… or in the middle of the climbing wall, you may suddenly have an epiphany.  Or, at least for a while, you will be fully present and not worried about the future.

11.  Be present.

Speaking of being present, be interested in what you’re doing, no matter how “boring” or “mundane” it may be — quotes intended, because any activity can be made as interesting as you are willing to make it.  This will keep you in the moment and will keep your mind off your troubles and worries.

You have the power to control your mood.  Use these positive-energy-boosting exercises every single day.  Before long, you will be the high-vibrating ray of sunshine that brightens everyone’s mood!  We all have the ability to look to our mind for ways to not only dissolve that sadness, but to cultivate such a positive state of mind that we won’t fall easily back into melancholia.

There are many ways in which we can cultivate positive energy five ways to transform your mindset from darkness into light, sadness into happiness.  May they also help lift up your soul.

12.  Appreciation

When you appreciate someone, you’re tuned into their positive qualities and express your empathy and gratitude for them.  It’s a simple way to refresh yourself and establish heartfelt connections with ourselves and others.

With so much beauty all around us, it is easy to show our appreciation to others, and nature, on a daily basis.  Try appreciating the simple things you might take for granted, for example, a deep relaxing breath of crisp outdoor air or the pleasurable radiant warmth of the sun at noon.  Or the thing we should be the most grateful for  (but the one we often forget) — that we’re alive and so fortunate to experience each and every day.

As you do this, try to focus completely on the good this experience offers you and acknowledge that you — and only you have created it — no matter how it came to you.  Regardless of your condition or circumstances, there will always be something that you can find to appreciate.

13.  Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the moment-to-moment experience of peace and understanding that occurs when the suffering of someone who feels injured has their suffering reduced as they transform the grievance that initiated that suffering.  By embracing the feeling of forgiveness as something that can help us, we accept it as an aspect of acceptance, love, peace, and truth instead of experiencing hatred, negativity, and falsehood — all of which are faces of resentment.  By being forgiving, we acknowledge that people make mistakes and release the emotional burden that holding a grudge has on us.

14.  Selflessness

When we are selfless, we shift our focus onto the needs of others, rather than keeping it on ourselves.  It’s the practice of being unselfish and minimizing the gratification of the ego’s wants and desires.

In order to make the life-redefining shift from selfishness to selflessness, go and focus on the well-being of others.  This can be done in countless ways.  You can clean up your life and surrender a fully healed body, heart, mind and soul to others when entering a relationship.

You can also be ready to share any amount of time needed by others whenever they need it  (don’t allow yourself to be used, however).  Be happy with your life and with whatever you are offered by others.  Whenever you are sure to give your very best, you are receiving exactly what ever you need for your greatest possible benefit.

15.  Wonder

Experiences of wonder can lead us to a sense of transcendence and realization of higher states of consciousness.  From a mystical perspective, it relates to affirmation, as wonder openings reveal the infinite and the source of all that is, which operates as gateways to uniting experiences.

Buddhism muses that distinctions limited to relative or empirical reality are just an illusion; resulting in the continuation of anguish, pain and frustration because we become alienated from experiencing reality through the eyes of a child where everything was wondrous.  In short, wonder leads us tasting a unified and infinite existence that enriches our life experience.

16. Nostalgia

Nostalgia is a yearning for a return to some past period or seemingly irrecoverable condition that’s seen in a positive light.

Studies have found that people who have a heightened level of nostalgia have higher self-esteem and are less prone to depression.  Thinking of good memories for just 15 or 20 minutes a day can make you more cheerful than you were the week before, and happier than if you think of your current life.  Nostalgia is a very potent mood booster, so if you seem to be in a bit of a funk, think about good memories of times past and you will experience higher self-esteem and feel more positive about friendships and close relationships.

JUDITH ORLOFF: “Sensing Energy — 5 Strategies To Read People’s Emotional Energy”

246575_442734952425928_1831631283_n-3

Emotions are a stunning expression of our energy, the “vibe” we give off.  We register these with intuition.  Some people feel good to be around; they improve your mood and vitality.  Others are draining; you instinctively want to get away.  This “subtle energy” can be felt inches or feet from the body, though it‘s invisible.  Indigenous cultures honor this energy as life force.  In Chinese medicine it‘s called chi, a vitality that‘s essential to health.  Though the molecular structure of subtle energy isn’t fully defined, scientists have measured increased photon emissions and electromagnetic readings about healers who emit it during their work.

Emotional energy is contagious. It can make the difference between a toxic and healthy relationship.  It’s crucial to get a clear read on this aspect of anyone you plan to regularly interact with.  Then, you can decide whether a relationship is feasible based on your energetic compatibility.  In my medical practice and life this chemistry is a deal breaker.  Experience has taught me that it’s pointless to work with a patient or form a friendship if such basic rapport isn’t there.  You don’t have to force a fit when the energy feels right.  Forcing anything is simply the mind’s attempt to interfere with flow.  Of course, we all have quirks, anxieties, and fears, but energy cements your bond with others and motivates you to work through the rough spots.  Nevertheless, healthy relationships have a momentum that carries them, a surrender that feels more natural when you‘re both in sync.

When reading emotions, realize that what others say or how they appear frequently don‘t match their energy.  You must let go of the notion that what you see is what you always get.  As a psychiatrist I’ve observed how people go to great lengths, purposely or not, to appear in certain ways — either to impress, say the right thing, or sell you on something — but this “self” isn’t aligned with their true emotions.  Consider these examples: your spouse apologizes for blowing up but her hostility still lingers.  A man you just met tries to charm you, but you don’t feel much heart there.  A friend seems cheerful but you sense that she’s hurting inside.  Realize: just because people smile doesn’t mean they’re happy.  Or just because people are reserved, doesn’t mean they’re not ecstatic.  Ultimately, the energy transmitted by someone’s smile and presence tells the truth about where they’re at.  So, be smart enough to correlate a person’s energy with their emotions.  Most people aren’t being intentionally misleading — often they don‘t know what they feel or project.  They might tell you one thing — and believe it — but you’ll learn to decode their emotions.

Here, the surrender to focus on is saying “yes” to the messages your body sends.  Your mind may want to talk you out of your body’s wisdom.  Don’t allow it to.  Reading energy lets you attune to how you relate to people, who you feel comfortable around and who you don’t.  To avoid bad relationships and regrets, you must let go of trying to convince yourself of anything the body’s intuition doesn’t affirm.  To help with this surrender, here’s what to do.  When identifying how you energetically respond to others always ask, How does my body feel?  Does my energy go up or down?  Then follow your body’s lead rather than resisting it.  In practical terms this means: you want to marry someone who increases your energy not drains it, regardless of how perfect he or she looks on paper.  You want to sit beside a coworker who’s positive, not negative.  You want to choose friends you resonate with so that you can nurture each other.  Then notice the positive difference in your life. To experience the pleasure of compatible relationships, use the following tips.

Strategies to read emotional energy

Sense people’s presence — This is the overall energy we emit, not necessarily congruent with words or behavior.  It‘s the emotional atmosphere surrounding us like a rain cloud or the sun.  For instance, they may give off an aura of mystery, joy, or sadness.  To compare extremes, think of the Dalai Lama’s, compassionate presence versus Charles Manson’s deranged darkness.  Presence is also associated with charisma, a personal magnetism that you‘re drawn to.  Warning: charisma doesn’t always contain heart, something to beware of. Charisma without heart can’t be trusted.  It’s a dangerous combination present in many con artists and seducers.

As you read people notice: does their overall energy feel warm?  Calming?  Uplifting? Invigorating like a breath of fresh air?  Or is it draining?  Cold?  Detached?  Angry?  Jarring?  Depressed?  Do they have a friendly presence that attracts you?  Or are you getting the willies, making you back off.  Also see if people look anchored in their bodies, indicating their feet are firmly planted on the ground.  Or are they floating outside themselves, which may indicate flakiness and distractibility?

Watch people’s eyes  We can make love or hate with our eyes.  Our eyes transmit powerful energies, what the Sufi poet Rumi calls “the glance.”  Just as the brain has an electromagnetic signal extending beyond the body, studies indicate that the eyes project this too.  In fact, research reveals that people can sense when they‘re being stared at, even when no one is in sight — an experience reported by police officers, soldiers and hunters.  Indigenous cultures respect the energy of the eyes.  Some believe that the “evil eye” is a gaze that inflicts injury or bad luck on its target.  Also, science has documented “the look of love.”  Joining eyes with a loved one (or dog!) triggers a biochemical response, releasing oxytocin, the warm and fuzzy “love hormone.”  The more oxytocin your brain has, the more trusting and peaceful you’ll feel.

Take time to observe people’s eyes.  Are they caring?  Sexy?  Tranquil?  Mean?  Angry?  The way others look at you can make you feel adored or afraid.  Also determine: is there someone at home in their eyes, indicating a capacity for intimacy?  Or do they seem to be guarded or hiding?  Certain people’s eyes can be hypnotic.  Avoid looking deeply into eyes you distrust or sense may be dangerous.  The less you engage negative people, the less they’ll zone in on you.  On the other hand, feel free to fall into people’s eyes who you cherish.  Enjoy all that beautiful energy!

Notice the feel of a handshake, hug and touch  We share emotional energy through physical contact much like an electrical current.  Ask yourself: Does a handshake or hug feel warm, comfortable, confident?  Or is it off-putting so you want to withdraw?  Are people’s hands clammy, signaling anxiety.  Or limp, suggesting being non-committal and timid?  Is their grip too strong, even crushing your fingers, indicating aggression or over control?  Along with physical cues, the energy of touch reveals people’s emotions.  Some hugs and handshakes impart kindness, joy, and calm whereas others feel clingy, draining, even hostile.  Therefore, spend time with people whose energy you like.  Be wary of those you don’t so you‘re not depleted.  Avoid physical contact (including making love) with anyone whose energy doesn’t feel good.

Listen for people’s tone of voice and laugh — The tone and volume of our voice can tell much about our emotions.  Sound frequencies create vibrations.  Some frequencies we hear.  Below an audible range, sound can be felt (think of a bass vibration).  When reading people, notice how their tone of voice affects you.  Words ride the energy of tone, its warmth and coldness.  Ask yourself: Does their tone feel soothing?  Or is it abrasive, snippy, or whiny?  Are they a soft-talker or mumbler whom you can barely hear, signs of meekness or low self-esteem?  Or do they talk too loud or too much, signs of anxiety, narcissism, or insensitivity.  Are they fast-talkers, trying to sell you something?  Or boring you to death with a slow monotone, suggesting depression and no spontaneity?  Be aware of sighing which relays sadness or frustration.  Also, a pinched voice suggests emotional repression, over control, or a thyroid disorder.  Always observe how much people laugh, a sign of lightheartedness.  Does their laugh sound genuine?  Fake?  Child-like?  Joyous?  Or are they overly serious, rarely laughing?  In addition, a quivering voice and sudden change in pitch can indicate potential signs of deception.

Sense people’s heart energy — The most important aspect to read about energy is whether people exude a sense of heart.  This is the loving-kindness in us, our capacity for empathy, giving and connection.  When heart is present you‘ll feel the warmth of emanating from others which makes you feel safe and at ease.  It‘s the unspoken sense of being accepted, not judged.  No one can fake this.  Our heart presence builds through our good intentions, deeds and emotional work to overcome fear and negativity.  The heart is the most positive quality anyone can have.  It‘s healthy to be drawn to it.

Reading energy is a game-changer where intense emotions blur your clarity.  It enables you to see past fantasies or desires to pinpoint someone‘s motivations by sensing invisible messages they give off.  I was once attracted to a man, a successful financial manager who knew exactly what to say to melt my heart.  Todd was from the country club set and much too conservative for my taste — I often fall for wild, creative men.  Yet he was smart, boyishly playful, seemed to “see” me and respect my sensitivities.  We could discuss anything from politics to the nature of the universe and he’d speak to me in an appreciative low tone of voice I melted around (I’m very responsive to sound).  Still, from the start, when I looked into Todd’s eyes, I had the oddest feeling — there was no “there” there.  His eyes seemed cold, vacant, even a touch mean.  However, for better or worse, I was drawn to him, which doesn’t happen to me every day.  I really wanted to surrender to my romantic feelings for Todd, to explain away the niggling truth his eyes conveyed, though I knew I ignored this red flag at my own peril.  But, as the desiring mind can do when it wants something, it downplayed intuition.  I rationalized, “You‘re just too picky.  Todd is wonderful.  It‘s crazy to let his eyes stop me.” My friends also told me this, and I agreed.  So, for a year, I stayed in the relationship.  But in the end, this man‘s eyes revealed his true colors.

The problem was that Todd was a super-smooth operator and my raging hormones were blinding me.  Also, I was naive.  I confused his seductive energy with heartfelt caring and was horribly susceptible to the charisma he wielded so well.  It was a perfect storm of forces I didn’t have a handle on.  I needed to sort them through before I could read him from a neutral place which at that time was light years away.  A policy of mine is to study what makes me weak or strong, so I can learn from it.  If something knocks me off my center I want to know why and not repeat the situation.  To break Todd’s spell, I had to grasp that what excited him most was not to love me but to have power over me.  I just couldn’t grasp how he or anyone could feel that way.  He‘d reel me in with gorgeous intimacy, then be unavailable.  Or he‘d be incredibly sensitive, then incredibly cold.  I kept wracking my brains, “What could he possibly be getting from this?”  Slowly, I came to understand that he got off on the rush of being in control.  For him, it was an aphrodisiac.  I didn’t operate like this, nor had that been a dynamic in my past relationships.  But, thanks to Todd, I can recognize it now.  In retrospect, I‘m grateful to have learned this lesson about power versus love from a perfect teacher.  Also, I realized that once again, I’d talked myself out of intuition in favor of passion.  I’d surrendered to the wrong thing, to what I wanted, rather than what I “saw.” However, being human, sometimes I have to keep making the same mistakes until I finally learn.  Today, I value the energy of the eyes more than ever.  It communicates an essence in someone if we can trust this.

In your life, get used to reading people’s emotions.  Factor what you sense into your total assessment.  Maybe just a single red flag will appear so you‘re not sure what to do.  Then, take your time.  Watch how people treat you.  Notice if their words back up their behavior.  The purpose of reading energy is to become more empathic by sensing the nuances of different personalities.  Stay alert to the signals energy sends so that you can see the whole person.

PAIGE BARTHOLOMEW: “Your 7 Sacred Soul Tasks”

seven-sacred-tasks-2

Does it feel like something is out of balance in your life?  Maybe you’ve done a ton of healing work, you’ve read all the self-help books, you’ve meditated with the best of them, but still something feels off.

 

Having difficulties doesn’t mean that you’re failing at being a spiritual person.
Your life is simply showing you where you’ve still got some work to do.

 

Here’s what you need to know: your seven chakras aren’t just energy centers.  They are sacred containers of knowledge which contain an enormous amount of specific information for your growth.  Each chakra holds within it a soul task which must be mastered.  If any soul task is left incomplete, painful symptoms will show up in your life and your relationships.  These symptoms are signs showing you where you need to do your work.

First Chakra Task: Keep Yourself Safe

If you’re out of balance in this soul task, you might notice that you put others needs before your own — to your detriment.  You may allow situations or relationships into your life that hurt you.  You may rationalize that you deserve the pain.  You might turn on yourself, speak harshly to yourself, you may even hate yourself.  To improve your health in this chakra, make a commitment to observe the ways that you devalue yourself and let others devalue you.  The truth is — no one is more important than you, and you are no more important than anyone else.  Your needs matter as much as anyone else’s.  Stay mindful every day.  A deep purification process like this takes time, so keep at it until you feel more stabilized.

Second Chakra Task: Connect with Others

We can’t make healthy connections with others if we believe everyone else is better, smarter, or that they matter more than we do (see how the health of each chakra has to be solid before we can fully master the next?).  If you’re out of balance in this soul task, you might notice that it feels hard to make and keep friends.  Connection may feel difficult for you.  To improve your health in this chakra, start with a commitment to daily self-inquiry and examination.  Observe your own behaviors and feelings around others.  Take small steps toward interaction with people.  Set goals for joining in with groups.  Remember, your commitment is all you need.  If you are committed, the healing will come.

Third Chakra Task: Set Boundaries

Symptoms of ill-health in the third chakra show up as either a tendency to be “too nice” and let people walk all over you, or to be “the Big Cheese”, believing you are entitled to more than your fair share.  We must learn healthy boundaries.  If you are out of balance in this chakra, you might have a hard time saying no.  You may grieve a lot about other people’s pain.  You may worry about how someone will feel if you set down boundaries.  Or — you may feel an impulse to run over people to get your needs met.  To improve your health in this chakra, first commit to observing your patterns and discover the reasons for them.  Then make a solid commitment to boundary setting.  Learn to say “Yes” and “No” at appropriate times, both to others and to YOURSELF.  You must learn to say NO to toxic people, places and situations, and say YES to beautiful, fair, kind ones.  The third chakra soul task balances the ego.

Fourth Chakra Task: Forgive

If you’re out of balance in this soul task, you might notice that you have trouble forgiving yourself or others.  You might be hurt or angry about things that happened a very long time ago.  You might hold grudges.  Forgiveness is the soul task that opens the heart.  If we are unable to forgive, we will be unable to move into fourth density consciousness (4th chakra heart), which is vital if we are to shift into the New Earth.  Forgiveness requires a change of heart.  Forgiveness occurs when we accept that our brother (or our self) is, in truth, innocent, and deserves our compassion.  No matter what you did, no matter what they did, the soul is innocent.  If you’re having trouble discerning whether or not to trust someone who is toxic or dangerous, go back to the third chakra — you have more work to do there.

Fifth Chakra Task: Embody Fearless Truth

Symptoms of ill-health in the fifth chakra show up as a fear of speaking your truth.  You may be afraid of the consequences when you say what you deeply believe.  You may fear hearing what someone else deeply believes.  When this chakra is balanced, you’ll know how to discern Truth from falsehood, because you will have effectively grasped all of the soul tasks from the previous chakras.  Here, the soul is becoming pure.  To heal an imbalanced fifth chakra, practice knowing your Truth.  Practice standing firm in your truth.  And finally, practice speaking your truth while maintaining pristine compassion and respect for others.

Sixth Chakra Task: Become One with the Creation

When the sixth chakra soul task is incomplete, we do not see others as our self — we see them as separate.  It is a very high state of being to actually be able to see others as yourself.  It’s more than just sympathy.  It’s more than just being able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.  We are talking about literally seeing your brother as YOU.  Seeing that you are the same being at the core.  The truth is — we are all only ONE being.  Symptoms of ill-health in this chakra show up as subtle projections onto other people: “He is less evolved than I am.”  Symptoms also show up as a sense of separation: “I’m glad it’s them and not me.”  To restore health in the sixth chakra, meditation is necessary.  Become quiet and get to know yourself in stillness.  Practice seeing your neighbor as yourself.  Practice seeing a tree as yourself.  Feel it as though it were REAL.

Seventh Chakra Task: Become One with the Creator

Becoming one with the Creator is such a high state that humans are not capable of maintaining it for long periods of time.  Like the story in the bible when God revealed Himself to the mountain and it crumbled to dust, we dissolve back into All-ness when we reach this eternal station.  We slip into states of Divine knowingness, drink from it, and then we slip back out.  It’s that way by design.  Each time we slip in, the experience changes us so profoundly, we are never the same human being again.  Our soul task in this chakra is not a matter of reaching perfection, because we never will.  This chakra is infinite.  Our task here is to open to the mystery of the absolute as often as possible, and to surrender our small self to its Intelligence.  Practice by meditating on loving your Creator.  Meditate on opening your entire being and offering it to the service of your Creator.  Ask for help from your Creator, for your human self cannot know how to explore the realms of the Most High without help from the Most High.

 

Have fun in your travels, for in truth,
Growing through these soul tasks is the entire reason you’re here.

MICHAEL FORRESTER: “Science Finally Confirms That People Absorb Energy From Others”

science confirms! (3).png

A biological research team at Bielefeld University has made a groundbreaking discovery showing that plants can draw an alternative source of energy from other plants. This finding could also have a major impact on the future of bioenergy eventually providing the evidence to show that people draw energy from others in much the same way.

Members of Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse’s biological research team have confirmed for the first time that a plant, the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, not only engages in photosynthesis, but also has an alternative source of energy: it can draw it from other plants. The research findings were released this week in the online journal Nature Communications published by the renowned journal Nature.

Flowers need water and light to grow and people are no different. Our physical bodies are like sponges, soaking up the environment. “This is exactly why there are certain people who feel uncomfortable in specific group settings where there is a mix of energy and emotions,” said psychologist and energy healer Dr. Olivia Bader-Lee.

Plants engage in the photosynthesis of carbon dioxide, water, and light. In a series of experiments, Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse and his team cultivated the microscopically small green alga species Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and observed that when faced with a shortage of energy, these single-cell plants can draw energy from neighbouring vegetable cellulose instead. The alga secretes enzymes (so-called cellulose enzymes) that ‘digest’ the cellulose, breaking it down into smaller sugar components.

These are then transported into the cells and transformed into a source of energy: the alga can continue to grow. ‘This is the first time that such a behaviour has been confirmed in a vegetable organism’, says Professor Kruse. ‘That algae can digest cellulose contradicts every previous textbook. To a certain extent, what we are seeing is plants eating plants’. Currently, the scientists are studying whether this mechanism can also be found in other types of alga. Preliminary findings indicate that this is the case.

These are then transported into the cells and transformed into a source of energy: the alga can continue to grow. ‘This is the first time that such a behaviour has been confirmed in a vegetable organism’, says Professor Kruse. ‘That algae can digest cellulose contradicts every previous textbook. To a certain extent, what we are seeing is plants eating plants’. Currently, the scientists are studying whether this mechanism can also be found in other types of alga. Preliminary findings indicate that this is the case.

“When energy studies become more advanced in the coming years, we will eventually see this translated to human beings as well,” stated Bader-Lee. “The human organism is very much like a plant, it draws needed energy to feed emotional states and this can essentially energize cells or cause increases in cortisol and catabolize cells depending on the emotional trigger.”

Bader-Lee suggests that the field of bioenergy is now ever evolving and that studies on the plant and animal world will soon translate and demonstrate what energy metaphysicians have known all along — that humans can heal each other simply through energy transfer just as plants do. “Human can absorb and heal through other humans, animals, and any part of nature. That’s why being around nature is often uplifting and energizing for so many people,” she concluded.

Here are five energy tools to use to clear your space and prevent energy drains while releasing people’s energy:

Stay centered and grounded. If you are centered within your spiritual self (instead of your analyzer or ego) you will sense right away when something has moved into your space. If you are fully grounded, you can easily release other people’s energy and emotions down your grounding cord with your intention.

Be in a state of non-resistance. What we resists sticks. If you feel uncomfortable around a certain person or in a group, don’t go into resistance as a way to protect yourself as this will only keep foreign energy stuck in your space. Move into a state of non-resistance by imagining that your body is clear and translucent like clear glass or water. This way, if someone throws some invalidation at you, it will pass right through you.

Own your personal aura space. We each have an energetic aura surrounding our body. If we don’t own this personal space we are vulnerable to foreign energy entering it. Become aware of your aura boundaries (about an arms length away from your body all the way around, above and below) as a way to own your personal space.

Give yourself an energy cleanse. The color gold has a high vibration which is useful for clearing away foreign energy. Imagine a gold shower nozzle at the top of your aura (a few feet above your head) and turn it on, allowing clear gold energy to flow through your aura and body space and release down your grounding. You will immediately feel cleansed and refreshed.

Call back your energy. When we have our energy in our own space there is less room for other’s energy to enter. But as we focus on other people and projects we sometimes spread our energy around. Create an image of a clear gold sun several feet above your head and let it be a magnet, attracting all of your energy back into it (and purifying it in the gold energy). Then bring it down through the top of your aura and into your body space, releasing your energy back into your personal space.
