You know that feeling when you are around someone and they make you feel light and airy, versus when you are around someone else who leaves you feeling heavy and exhausted?
This is personal energy.
So often energy is quickly linked to spirituality, however if you are more of a left brain logic thinker, you may want some more tangible ways to understand personal energy.
Here are 5 fascinating (and scientific!) facts everyone should know about personal energy.
To understand the basic principles of personal energy you first have to understand EVERYTHING is made up of energy. EVERYTHING. Even Humans!
Every one of us are made up of trillions of cells. These cells create our bones, muscles, tissues, skin, blood, hair, eyes…they make up everything in us. Cells are the building blocks of life.
Science tells us:
↠ When you break down cells to their microscopic level, they are simply made of atoms.
↠ When you break an atom down, they are simply made of protons, electrons, neutrons, and quarks.
↠ When you break down electrons, protons, neutrons and quarks, they are simply little ‘nano tornadoes’ of energy moving at lightening speed.
Therefore, if the building blocks of humans (a trillion cells) are simply tiny cyclonic tornadoes of vibrating energy, then we, as humans, are simply walking energy vortexes.
You are energy.
Quantum physics tells us when you break anything down to its microscopic foundation – it is energy. Energy is constantly in a state of vibration and these vibrations send off different frequencies depending on what is impacting the energy.
Think classical music versus punk rock. An electric guitar versus a harp. These are all sound energy with very different frequencies.
Energetic biology tells us humans also vibrate at different levels based on what is impacting their energy. Think about when your body is tense, in fear, and ready to react -- it gives off a much different vibration than when your body is relaxed, present and calm. You can physically feel the different frequencies dependent on your emotional state. The great news? You can learn how to raise your vibrations!
One of the best ways to do this is start doing the internal work -- starting with that annoying voice in your head telling you what you can and cannot do. Want to learn how to shut it up for good? Discover how to here!
You've heard before the power your thoughts and emotions have on your individual reality. But what does that really mean?
A little more biology to help explain. When you are in moment of love and bliss you release different chemicals into your body, like dopamine and oxytocin, and your body literally relaxes and you feel euphoric and peaceful. Whereas, when you are in a state of fear or anxiety, you release cortisol and epinephrine, which puts your body on guard, and you feel tense and ready to 'fight or flight'.
The releasing of different chemicals into your body is literally based on your thoughts and emotions. Therefore, when you change (or learn to better regulate) your thoughts and emotions you are literally changing the physical reactions in your body.
We ALL have negative thought patterns and self-limiting beliefs which we play in our heads over and over and over again. Whether we are conscious or unconscious of them, they are there, on replay burned into our subconscious mind like the ABC's.
The good news? Neuroplasticity means our brains have the ability to re-wire themselves. In other words, you can CHOOSE to create new beliefs and thoughts to override those old beliefs which are no longer serving you.
When you choose to learn about yourself, how you tick, why you think the thoughts you think and really begin to dig into and challenge some beliefs that may be holding you back, you are doing the inner work that creates lasting change in your life.
Neuro-cardiologist (Scientists who study the heart brain connection) tell us the heart has a lot more influence in our overall wellness than once thought. HeartMath Institute in California share fascinating facts about the heart. Did you know:
This is FASCINATING stuff you guys.
This is why practicing gratitude is having such profound effects on peoples perceptions and mental wellness.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Once you understand how your personal energy works and how it impacts your world, you begin to recognize the power you hold within yourself.
And is it empowering AF.
