What is Energy?


As you sit there reading this post, energy flows around you and through you from radio waves, television, cell phones and electricity. All energy holds a frequency of vibration, even physical matter, and this frequency will either move slow or fast, depending on the density of the physical matter.

Therefore, all matter – the chair you are sitting on – and of course the human body itself – is made up of energy.

Nikola Tesla observed that the universe is a sea of energy. Energy comprises 98% of the Universe and matter only 2%.

As Oprah stated “One of the truths I most deeply believe is that everything in life – eeevvveerrryy thing – is energy.”

Our thoughts are energy. We are responsible for everything we do, based on our intent – so it is important to become consciously aware of what we think before we act.

On average, the human mind creates about one thought every 15 seconds, and this equates to around 240 thoughts per minute. This is a lot of energy!

Thought sets up energy patterns. Every thought has an effect. What we think we become ~ Paul Fenton-Smith

We are constantly affected by this energy in the third dimension – but we are also affected by the way other people, objects and events around use this energy to create their own realities.

For example, if you’re angry with someone, you’ll project an energy field of anger which will sit around the person and affect anyone else who comes into their field; to include yourself. The same applies when someone is happy.

There is little point saying an affirmation, prayer or holding a crystal if you’re thinking about what that “terrible” woman said about you in the office.

If you keep your energy fields nurtured with the light/spirit of Source/God, you will enlighten yourself on all levels. The more you lift your vibration each day the more your thoughts will be filled with high frequency energy.

Set aside 10 minutes each day to send out thoughts of gratitude for all you have received in your life that has served you well. Say prayer of thanks to all the people who have assisted you including those who have triggered you in some way.

Choose to let go of judgements of yourself and others. Allow compassion to fill your thoughts and surrender to what is in each moment, releasing the will of your ego/personality.

The choice is yours…it always is.

  1. I love what you wrote about surrendering each moment, that’s such a key for me. My spiritual teacher John-Roger wrote a book, You Can’t Afford The Luxury of a Negative Thought. Your post reminds me of this — thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Great post! It’s becoming more and more commonly known that the positive energy of our thoughts and words affect us deep inside our cells! Our bodies respond to this… They always have, it’s just that we’re becoming aware of this cause and effect phenomenon! Good job!


  3. It really works. Thoughts of gratitude helps a lot to forgive and forget the disturbing episodes of our daily life. It saves energy. Enjoyed the post very much.

  4. Loved this post ๐Ÿ™‚ It reminds us to take responsibility for our thoughts, actions and energies…Thank you for this important reminder ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. And because of that I’ve read it and loved it. I also believe in energy (Carlos Castaรฑeda!) and that way of thinking changed my life for th better. Thank you Spiritual Journey for writing in such a beautiful way. And thank you Timeless Wheel to put in in front of my eyes. <3

  5. So raw and true!I read a book recently,called”The power”,which put me in perspective and made me realize how much counts to have thoughts filled with positivity,optimism,gratitude and honest love.Everything that surrounds us is full of energy,light and love,we just need to choose the best for us and allow to feel deeply the strongest of powers which reside in no one but ourselves.
    Love your emotion!โค๏ธ

  6. It is a wonderful space to be when one is cognizant not only of their own energy they are constantly projecting, but also of the incoming energy coming from the conscious field around us.
    You mention electronic signals. It has been my experience, when coming into more of a meditative state, to pick up not only radio waves from a local station and begin singing a song that is currently on the airwaves, but also to pick up the tone of phone conversations in the vicinity as well.
    This may not be a skill all may want to have, but it shows the complexity of the interplay of energy around us. We are fearfully and wonderfully made.

      1. I think we all have the capabilities. It grows as we move toward oneness. I’m looking forward to the day when we drop the electronics and are able to utilize our own innate capabilities. I think it comes as we begin to be “safe” to have them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Thank you for this post. Sometimes we need to be reminded the power we hold. Especially, those of us walking threw a dark phase in our lives. Very encouraging words.

    1. Glad it lifted your spirits a bit. We all have the capacity to heal ourselves…we need to acknowledge what keeps creeping up in our lives, working through it and releasing it.

  8. Reblogged this on Little Purple Box and commented:
    A post from a wonderful writer, that I feel should be shared. Every word is very true. This is also something I try to practice in my life. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that we are the key. Thank you SpiritualJourney17.
