Energetics Are Everything
Since the start of my spiritual journey over a decade ago, I’ve always been interested in energetics, but it wasn’t until the past few years that I’ve really started to experiment with energetics and energy work. Although I’m still a newb in this area, I have come to believe this wholeheartedly:
Energetics are everything.
I want to preface the meat of this post with a confession: I had no idea how much there is to learn about the human energy field and energetic anatomy. Not to mention all of the competing information that is out there. In doing research for this post, I fell down a google rabbit hole which made me realize how much more I have to learn about energetics. (And I’m totally okay with that because I’m a nerd for learning 😉
So, I am by no means an expert in energetics, but I can share my own experiences and practices in case you find any of it helpful 🙂 I’m also excited to learn more and expand my knowledge in this area. For me, when there are competing explanations and beliefs, I always feel into what aligns most with my higher energy. What feels right and true for me on a soul level?
Okay so here’s the gist of energetics…everything is energy, even us. As humans, we have an energetic field that is composed of different layers of energy, and the awareness and maintenance of that energy is just as vital to our well-being as the care we give our physical body.
Our energetic state can deeply affect our human experience.
At any given moment, the state of your energy correlates with how you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally. Are you feeling happy, sad, tired, overwhelmed, resentful? If you’re feeling sad, you may feel physically empty and tired. If your energetics are vibrating high and you’re feeling happy, you may feel light, excited, and free.
When you interact with others – what is the energetic exchange going on there? Maybe you spend time with your best friend, and you come away feeling carefree and replenished. Maybe when you visit your least favorite relative, you come out on the other side feeling negative and physically depleted. In every moment, your energy is affecting how you are feeling and being.
You can literally shift how you feel–physically, mentally, and emotionally–by shifting your energy.
If you’re ready to start experimenting with energetics as part of your spiritual practice and personal well-being, I suggest you start here:
1. Decide on what resonates most with you. What type of energetic bodies or beliefs do you feel most drawn to? When you think of energy work and hygiene, what energy bodies and tools do you want to work with or experiment with? Are there certain types of energetic services or experiences you want to try?
2. Experience your energy. Take some time and space to just sit with yourself and feel into your energy. You can even treat this as a type of meditation. Get grounded and still. Go inward. How do you feel in the moment? Physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Then experiment. Visualize something that you deeply desire and feel into it. What is the underlying energy of that wish or goal? How does it make you feel? Notice how your energetic state has shifted since you first started your practice.
Since this post has turned into a bit of a monster, I’m going to save diving into my own energetic beliefs and practices for next week. I’ll share how I work with energetics, energetic hygiene, the type of professional energetic services I favor, and some of my daily energetic practices.
