Both ancient wisdom and modern research has shown that life is driven by an energy that is similar to electrostatic fields, yet far more complex (in pulsation, but not in nature), and this is essentially observable in every natural process. Professor Harold Saxton Burr quoted in his book that “Electricity is the way nature behaves” and by discovering that all living things are shaped by electro-dynamic fields, which could be measured and mapped with standard voltmeters, he coined the term “fields of life,” or L-fields, as the basic blueprints of all life on this planet. These L-field voltages revealed physical and mental conditions, and helped diagnose physical, psychological and neurological illnesses before symptoms developed.

Why do I mention this? Because it’s one of the many proofs that we are energy.

From the electric circuitry in our brain to the powerful pump of our heart, we are pure energy. And as energetic beings, we sometimes feel full of energy, in which case we are motivated, strong and powerful, and other times we feel completely depleted of energy. We spend our days either using our energy or seeking to gain energy and if done properly, we can continuously feel like we have a full tank of gas rather than going from first gear to too exhausted to move.

By being attentive to the body’s natural reaction to stimuli, one can become conscious of the energy levels within the body and the elements that positively or negatively contribute to these energy levels. Though we are often deluded by false energy, like sugar highs, the hypoglycemic after-effect offers the clue that such a substance is to be avoided in order to maintain high energy levels without allowing for energy highs and lows.

I once wrote an article entitled “Achieve True Victory, Achieve Self-Trust” in which the importance of trust in one’s feelings is outlined as necessary for knowing what are the right decisions to make in life. Similarly, one must come to trust the body’s signals and act upon the received input. Hence, one’s health and spirit depend on one’s ability to advocate for the body and hold firm one’s personal standards of well-being.

So how can one begin to be attentive to natural energy levels and maintain a new “normal” energy level that is higher than ever before?

Preserve Positivity: a positive attitude in life can go a long way for a positive mind provides a positive body. Image the body like a dog and the mind like the owner. Mistreat the dog and it may either stop working eagerly for you or come back and attack you in its own way. Be kind, give it rewards for good behaviour, speak encouragingly to it, and go play outside every once in a while.

Rest Assured: Moments of activity and rest must be balanced. Too much activity with little rest will drain a fuel tank to the point that only extreme lengthy recuperation will be needed. Similarly, laziness “trains” the body work on less energy and will thus develop an energy limit. A good eight hours of tranquil rest and deep sleep are necessary for moments of high energy and productivity.

Dump the Drains: There are many energetic drains in our lives that we often deem non-negotiable, believing that we have a sense of duty or obligation to sustain them. Often, a bit of reprogramming and sheds light on ways in which we can reduce the things in life that drain our energy. These include traffic jams, neon lights, monotony, excess stress, poor eating habits, specific working or living conditions, noise levels, poor air, water and food qualities, etc.

Have Fun: Fun-filled events, creative moments, engagement in one’s passions, and moments of hearty laughs are all ways in which one can boost energy levels without much difficulty. Often we believe that “fun” involves drinking or going to the pub, but these imply the use of energy drainers: drinking alcohol, being in smoky environments, high noise levels, poor rest, etc. Rather, “fun” implies a level of playfulness often only seen in children, when one can let go of all social restrictions and really feel free to laugh, play and fool around

It is necessary to orientate toward a paradigm that includes the study of life behaviour from an energetic perspective if we are to understand life driving forces and their applications. Vitalism and Life Force energy paradigms are key to understanding how the body works and uncover its purposeful function in life.

As energetic beings, we are all linked to the universe as a whole, including other people, animals, and natural fluxes. One’s spiritual and bodily energy levels thus affect everyone and everything within the shared environment and it is therefore part of our responsibility not only to increase our own energetic vibrations but also encourage the positive energy in others.

“It is only when you have both divine grace and human endeavor that you can experience bliss, just as you can enjoy the breeze of a fan only when you have both a fan and the electrical energy to operate it.” ~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba
