Your energy field
It has long been known that our cells and tissues generate electrical fields. However, the significance of those fields and our influence on them is still somewhat of a mystery. It is an invisible force field around us, telling the world how to interact with us and influencing how we experience it but we don't know how to interact or change it. But we can with a little mindfulness.
Your energy field should be arms length around you in all directions. But sometimes we extend our bubbles wide into the room or shrink them up into little balls. Other times we put up boundaries that are too intense or too weak. This impacts how we interact with others, how we use our energy and how we feel in various situations.
I use many techniques to teach the kids about their energy field. I teach kids to think of it like a bubble around them. I'll show a jar that is easy to put stuff in, but when flipped over, difficult to shake stuff out of. We play with hula-hoops and protect our space. Each of these games encourages them acknowledge that their space the exists beyond their bodies.
But the truth is kids only need to be taught to consciously use their energy field not that they have one. As babies we begin to use the size of our energy fields to get what we want from our caregivers. We intuitively know how to make our space bigger and smaller depending on how we want to experience things. But as we are impacted by life experiences, we start to unconsciously turn our energy field up or down.
Make use of your mind, body, spirit connection
Consciously using your energy field is easy. The trick is to do it when you are under pressure. The best way to flex this muscle is to practice, so when the pressure comes, you already know how it feels to be balanced. Giving conscious attention to your energy, arms length around you, is all you really need. Acknowledging how you want to feel in your personal space and who you authentically are. To read more about authenticity read my blog "The Secret Ingredient Of Success."
By doing this, you are using your own electromagnetic field to impact the space around you. This can impact the entire room. Just as an angry person can shift the energy of the entire room, a conscious aura can too.
This is more than a mind trick. This is a synchronization with who you are, what you intend and how you are feeling. If you practice understanding who you are, how to use intention and how to move yourself into peaceful feelings, when you are under stress, you can actually return to this state by using your awareness and electromagnetic field.
The Spirit Science channel on YouTube does a great job explaining some of these concepts. I recommend this video on the energy of the heart field.
Practice makes perfect
Part of the reason I wrote my book, Insightful Inspirations - Conversation starters for your authentic self, is because in my work I have noticed people struggle to know themselves. They have become collections of projections, programming and other people's judgments and often lose their sense of what gifts they want to bring to the world.
If you don't know who you are, it is hard to hold an energy field in a stressful situation. If someone more energetically committed to an intention influences your space, you will quickly switch back into autopilot. Practicing self awareness and understanding in calm, relaxed moments will help you hold your energy field when under pressure.
Proof is in the pudding
I can't tell you how many times I have seen this work. One situation comes to mind over all others. I was working at a party, reading for a variety of people. While I was in a room working with someone, I felt a strong energy come over the house and then dissipate. When I returned to the group everyone was in a buzz because a neighbor had come over intoxicated and in distress.
Knowing how I work, the hostess asked me to go over with her to check on the neighbor. As I walked into the house a strong sense of despair and struggle came over me. I instantly adjusted my energy field to hold the vibration of peace and wellness.
She went into the back bedroom to find her neighbor crying uncontrollably. The host came out afraid and concerned for her wellbeing and asked if there was anything I could do. As I entered the bedroom, I maintained my peaceful energy field, not matching into the energy of worry and concern the others had.
Immediately the woman's eyes cleared up and she grabbed my hand. She began telling me her story and asking me to stay with her. The others left the room and I sat with the woman awhile. When she began to drift off to sleep, I left.
Unfortunately, her troubles returned when I left and she ended up struggling with herself and her sister all night. But this is a great example of how you can impact a situation for yourself, despite strong energetic chaos.
Play around with it yourself and see what you notice. See what experiences you can have. Remember to be authentic in the use of your energy field. Using your energy field to control or manipulate others is not the point. I have seen people misunderstand this power and turn their lives upside down misusing it.
The point is to be the person you intend to be and watch how the world responds.
