Some articles just flow, research is done, words written and pop, there it is. Some articles start from my editing and reading of the other experts; their thoughts trigger new avenues of thought and exploration.
This article for Holistic Living Magazine on the other hand is really stumping me, in fact I’ve missed the publishing deadline, but I’ve been given some leeway to squeak in the day after.
Although it is interesting that in the first sentence I mention ‘flow’. Energy is as much about movement as anything else; electrical energy flows and moves from atom to atom; kinetic energy is about the movement of a body, tidal energy is about the movement of vast bodies of water, of course all caused by that celestial body the moon.
Also interesting is how people talk about themselves and others; ‘I feel flat…’, that person ‘just drains me…’ or even ‘I’m raring to go…’ If you think about it rationally, you can’t actually be flat, a person really can’t drain you, and you aren’t a race car engine being revved.
You are a physical and emotional being, but at the same time all matter is energy, so perhaps you can be flat or drained like a battery, or the total opposite, with a full tank of gas and are actually raring to go.
Now if energy is a major underpinning of your emotional and physical wellbeing, then perhaps focusing on and understanding what energy is in the context of the human body and spirit is a key step in overall happiness?
Of course, the first step in that process is to understand how energy is created, used and blocked within the body. Nutrition is a key step, you can’t be full of beans if you eat junk food and sugar every day.
You also can’t be raring to go if you are dealing with people and situations that are drains on your energy. If you walk out of work feeling as though you’ve been beaten up every day and all you want to do is crawl into bed then something is very wrong.
The next step is to further understand how you, as an individual, operate and how all these levels; the physical, the emotional and the energetic all interact and play upon each other.
This is not the first time that self-awareness is a key tenet in living a healthy life. If you don’t know what is broken, or working, then you can’t fix it, or expand upon it.
Once you have that understanding then we hope that this edition of HLM will further that knowledge, the experts have written some very interesting and surprising articles about energy and the human condition.
I know that my reading of this edition gave me a different perspective on energy and consciousness that I’ve already used to further some of my own personal goals.
