What is Energy?
Energy doesn't communicate in human tongues, but it does speak clearly. It speaks through the metaphors of our lived experiences, the hurricanes and earthquakes of nature, the expressions of the body’s symptoms, or the whispered message of a randomly chosen passage in a book.
Energy communicates through colors, geometric shapes or symbols, as well as through the dreams and the events that occur unexpectedly in our lives. This language, like any new tongue, is challenging. Learning it begins with paying attention to the ways in which the invisible world communicates. Whatever the situation, there is a message. It just takes a little exploration to uncover its meaning.
At a party some time ago, I had some insights into the way nature gives us messages. The conversation turned to the weather – how “unseasonably terrible” the rains had been, and whether that was a sign of climate change or just another rainy season.
I asked: “What if we stop and look at what’s going on from a different perspective...not just here but globally, and not just personally or even economically. What if we try to understand what these days and days of continuous and intense rain might mean in the bigger picture of life on planet earth?”
Energy Speaks through Nature
Rain is physical manifestation or reflection of the unseen energetic realms that surround us. It speaks to me of the transition we’re all experiencing as humanity evolves into a lighter, more energetically attuned state. Rain washes away the old, clearing, cleaning and bringing in the new.
I believe rain is only one of the ways that nature speaks to us. Hurricanes, floods, drought, earthquakes, hailstorms, excessive heat, unseasonable cold and erupting volcanoes are all others ways that nature expresses the energetic messages from the planet. The world around us is communicating constantly.
Energy Speaks through our Bodies
Energy also speaks to us through our bodies – through our aches and pains, itches and sniffles, and through our intuition and feelings. Some years ago, I had an experience that confirmed this. I had gone to an alternative health clinic in Switzerland to have dental surgery. I checked into the hotel recommended by the clinic.
The first night I was unable to sleep. It felt like I was on red alert. Every time I tried to sleep, my consciousness was jolted back to wakefulness. I was anxious and felt the need for protection, yet I knew that this anxiety was not mine. Yes, I was aware of the forthcoming surgery, but this level of anxiety was not in line with what was about to be done. My wakefulness had more to do with the energy in the room.
There weren’t any vacant rooms in the hotel to which I could move, so I got permission from the hotel owner to sleep in the computer room. Only then was I able to let go, to relax and finally, to go to sleep.
The second night, after the surgery was complete, I tried once again to sleep in my hotel room. I still felt the same anxiety, even though the surgery had gone smoothly and painlessly. Once again, I moved to the computer room and rested without distress.
The third night, another room became available and I moved to a different section of the hotel. The energy, the vibrations, the feeling in the room was totally different. I slept even better.
In the first room the anxieties of its past residents were palpable. I felt those anxieties as if they were my own feelings. It turns out there was a series of visitors who had each coincidentally determined to cross over (die) shortly after their visit in that part of the hotel. The residue of their distress was the dark energy that I had experienced.
More Energy Expressions
Energy also speaks to use through synchronicities – those seemingly coincidental events that we all experience – and through dreams. Consider the metaphors present in everything around you. Keep a journal and note any feelings that are out of the ordinary, any aches or pains that are new, different and fleeting.
Record your dreams. Write phrases or pages: it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you begin the process of noting how the unseen realms of energy affect you. Then try your hand at interpreting what you've experienced. Let your intuition or your inner knowing be a guide to beginning to understand the language of energy.
How does energy speak to you? What do you notice?
