Our bodies are atoms and molecules moving at a high rate of speed. Our bodies, like our thoughts, are pure energy. Our thoughts are more powerful in manifesting than our bodies in that they are free agents and not limited to gravity of the material plane. Our material bodies are immersed in energy because they are energy, which makes them susceptible to all kinds of energy around us. We are like magnets of energy.
Think back on a time when you might have entered a room and felt tension in your body, or you began feeling uneasy around someone, or you suddenly became nauseous for no reason. Our bodies are energy sensors; our bodies absorb and contain other energies we encounter. This has long been understood by different religious factions. Catholics often wear medals or relics to safe guard them from harm (e.g. St. Christopher, protector of drivers). Garlic is often portrayed as a remedy to ward off evil forces. Holy water has been known to clear negative, harmful entities when sprinkled on objects or people. Crystals are known to have curative qualities.
I have been exposed to certain people in my life who exhibit a negative energy that I can easily absorb when I am not conscious of doing so. In fact, my wife has always been able to tell when I’ve been around negative energy. I seem to wear it in my facial expressions, my verbal expressions, and how I carry my body. I don’t think I’m unique in this manifestation. My sense is that we all absorb energy and express it in similar ways, some ways more pronounced than others.
Crowd mentality is another way of understanding the power of energy around us. Concerts are a great example of powerful energy that sometimes goes amuck. If you have ever visited a prison, the negative energy is palpable. You can feel the energy, see the energy, hear the energy, and depending upon your sensitivity, you might even taste the energy. We can carry these energies for days, even weeks. Many times we keep these energies locked in our bodies by talking about the events, reliving them as if they were just happening. Sometimes when we express ourselves in anger, it is a release of pent-up negative energy that we’ve contained over a period of time. Anger released and spewed over someone else can cause a chain reaction. Fear is often related to unfortunate events in our lives, contained in our memory as energy.
The absorption of negative energy that is not dealt with can have a devastating impact on our bodies. Negative energy is like a cancer within the body. Dis-ease within the body is negative energy. Clearing that energy with healthy, loving, and spiritual energy can create a healthier body. Spiritual healings have been shown to have long-lasting effects. Jesus offered many spiritual healings throughout his ministry. He chastised negative entities to leave human bodies where they resided. Many faith and spiritual healers have existed during thousands of years. They’ve often been misunderstood, cast out as charlatans; they have often been thought of as evil, the work of the devil. Some people thought the same of Jesus in his time. People often fear what they do not understand.
There are many things we cannot explain about life and all the different manifestations that happen in and around us. We often just accept what is. There are those of us who understand that all things in life have a purpose, sometimes not immediately evident, yet over time it becomes revealed to us if we are open to it.
The challenge for each of us is to know that we have the power to overcome negative energy; we can unlock the effects of negative energy by absorbing the spiritual, loving energy that is all around us. When we unlock our own negative energy, freeing ourselves from its effects, we begin to affect other energies, other people, around us in a positive way. People often report a sense of calm, a lasting calm, after receiving a spiritual, energy healing. While they might still express things or feel things somewhat negatively at times, they find themselves able to come back to their center of calmness more quickly and easily over time. Relationships are often restored after a spiritual energy healing. An overall wellness often takes place for individuals who receive energy healings that are a combination of physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual in nature.
Tuning out our negative energy and tuning in to our spiritual energy is important to feeling a total sense of wellness.
