The first law of physics is the law of conservation.
“Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it transforms from one form to another.” (4)
To expand on this we could say that “energy simply moves from one place to another” whether that is to another form or into another medium.
To demonstrate this we can consider how we generate electricity. We simply capture the energy of gravity in a dam and run water through turbines, or we capture the kinetic energy of the wind to run a turbine, burn coal or capture sunlight to convert heat and light in electrical power.
That power is then used to charge batteries, heat homes and run appliances etc. All energy eventually returns back to the universe as heat, even if this takes billions of years. The fact remains, energy is never lost, it simply moves around, changes form and is recycled.
A similar example of this energy law is found in Osmosis and Diffusion which you can see in the diagram below.
The example of diffusion shows how a substance let loose into a liquid or a gas will spread out and fill the entire space evenly, a bit like a bad smell or a teaspoon of sugar. You could also say this happens when we eat something, think something or apply knowledge of a principle into our lives. The energy is never lost, it just spreads out evenly. The question is, how much energy do we have available when we need it?
Osmosis might help answer this. The law of osmosis usually applies to water and it means that water will move across a membrane to balance the concentration of a substance. This happens a lot with salts and acids in our bodies because salt and acid balance are crucial to stay alive. Osmosis is more to do with balance than the conservation of energy, but the energy principle is similar, energy simply moves.
Remember “Energy is never lost, it just moves from place to another.”
The thing with energy in our lives, is that we could mistake this energy principle for the idea of fairness. In-fact, for some reason we think that there is a give and take relationship with the world and that lets us down.
Here’s a few good examples:
- Karma – When you good or bad things, good or bad things will return to you equally
- When we do good to others we think good things will come back to us. “As ye give so shall ye receive”
- When we work hard we expect to be rewarded financially. Fair trade.
- When we fall in love with somebody we think they should love us in return
Things such as “give and ye shall receive” or ‘the law of Karma’ does not always seem to apply in real life. Bad things happen to good people and vice versa. As life goes on we start to feel more and more disappointed and disillusioned with the world.
You will have noticed that often things are very unfair. You do good, things, work hard, be nice to people etc, and yet this is not always returned. We end up getting hurt, ripped off, disappointed and let down by others. Ultimately you end up experiencing loss, feeling exhausted, depressed, sad, sick and grieving. These examples show how these energy equilibrium concepts actually fail us.
Energy exchange in this sense of fairness and balance is a false concept, as energy in this physical world simply moves from one form to another and it has no real destiny, intelligence or intent behind it. For the sake of this exercise we will coin that ‘horizontal energy exchange’.
The nature of this horizontal energy exchange with the world around us leads us to become stressed, angry and eventually sick. This temporary physical world will never bring us true lasting happiness and peace. It’s all a mirage or illusion. True lasting happiness can only be found by connecting with the source of infinite, unconditional healing energy from above.
This is a vertically moving energy and comes down on us from a higher realm. The only thing we need to do to receive this endless reservoir of energy is to tune in and resonate with it, which we will talk about more in part 4.
A great analogy I often use for the source of healing energy is the Sun. The reason for this is there are some striking similarities. The sun appears to have infinite energy, and it ask for nothing in return. In fact if you tried to give the sun something it would simply burn it up before it got close. Also when you feel the sun on your body, it has this incredible warm glowing feeling. Like a comforting healing effect. Healing energy also has this nature, but we will talk about this later.
But how can we use this vertical energy concept for healing?
Consider these key principles.
- The source of healing energy is infinite and unconditional
- It supplies a one-way endlessly flowing energy and requires nothing in return
- Energy simply moves impartially from one place or state to another place or state
- As our capacity to release and channel this energy outwardly increases, healing will take place
- As a result, the need to get energy from the world around us decreases and happiness increases
- The only thing potentially standing in the way is our limited beliefs, attitudes or opinions
Let’s look at that.
Healing Energy Flow Diagram (explained below)
“Infinite Healing energy simply moves from one place to another”
It is primarily our beliefs, opinions, and attitudes (our Ego stuff) that block energy making us sick. (1,2,3)
Just to clarify, we are NOT talking about absolute knowledge or truth.
Our physical body is the direct result of these mental attitudes and their emotional consequences. Because up to 90% of our opinions, beliefs, and attitudes (our stuff) are often fear-based and typically don’t align with absolute truth, they usually block the flow of energy.
A critical part of this, is that expectation of energy return from the world around us.
Again, this causes us to feel disappointed, tired, heavy, under pressure, angry, sad or frustrated within, causing stress, grief and pain, both physical and emotional. Eventually, this results in the disease process.
Trying to retain further energy is the biggest mistake we make and this type of energy retention will make us unwell, a bit like constipation. Our oldest beliefs, attitudes, and opinions hold back the energy which builds up increasing pain and pressure within.
When we focus on dropping all our attitudes and beliefs, allowing ourselves to simply experience things as they really are, we let go, we make space, reduce resistance and healing energy flows.
This usually requires a shift in attitude, opinions, belief or philosophy, and that is when we receive actual divine knowledge, truth, light and healing. Nothing is lost, it simply changes form. We then have access to the healing power and burn off that stored and trapped energy.
Beliefs become knowledge and sickness becomes health. Divine energy can be felt flowing through our hearts and healing takes place.
The more we drop our ego, and let go, the more we receive, because the source is infinite.
Remember ‘energy simply moves’, it’s unconditional, and all we need to do is think vertical and let go.
Now you’re ready to tune in to the healing energy.
