Today, when we look at a brain, we see an intricate network of billions of neurons in constant, crackling communication, a chemical labyrinth that senses the world outside and within, produces love and sorrow, keeps our hearts beating and lungs breathing, composes our thoughts, and constructs our consciousness.”
— Carl Zimmer
The world is made up of atoms, molecules, microns, and many smaller, subatomic particles. These energy particles are in constant motion and are the essence of every animate and inanimate object. These animate and inanimate objects have an energy signature that can be measured by its specific vibratory rate. Every thing is in motion. Everything vibrates. Energy medicine traditions around the world call this Universal energy vibration life force, Chi or Qi in the Chinese traditions.
Throughout history, cultures from all over the world have acknowledged the existence of a Universal Energy Force flowing through everything in the world, including the human body. It has been given many names. In India it is called ‘’Prana’’. In the Far East it is ‘’Chi’’ and in some shamanistic traditions it is described is ‘’Chula’’ or ‘’Amimu’’. Today many people refer to it as ‘’Spirit’’ or the ‘’Life Force’’.
Everything is energy. Atoms vibrating at different frequencies form matter. In the physical world the only thing separating a chair from a rock is their rate of vibration. Even non-physical entities such as thoughts, memories, feelings, love and fear are forms of energy with their own frequency and magnetic signature as well.
Think of your body as a receiving and a sending station to understand how energy works. Atoms are the building block of matter that makes up all living things such as a plants, animals, the air and even you! Your body contains a variety of atoms which are composed of protons and electrons with electric energy running through them. It has been proven that Reiki can help people suffering from various major and minor ailments. It is often used as a complementary conventional therapy.
The energy within your body is directed to move based on your thoughts and feelings, and is carried throughout your body via a web of strong connective tissue called fascia. We are always communicating energetically. Before you have spoken a word, your frequency has relayed volumes of information. When we speak of raising vibration, it is a change in frequency. You are sending out new information. In doing so your communication is understood by those of like frequency. The human body is an energetic listening post within an infinite ocean of frequencies and vibrations. We have connections to energy fields all around and within us. Remember your true creative potential. Our whole individual and collective experience is based in energy exchanges.
