The human energy system is called by many names. The Chinese speak about chi (or qi), a vital energy that runs through meridians, or energy channels in the body. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is used to balance chi, unblocking these energy channels, resulting in good health and vitality.
The Hindus speak of Prana, the breath of life, the breath of consciousness. Prana flows through the body and is considered a main component of Ayurvedic medical treatments. Modern day yoga practice is built upon the precept of breath, or prana.
In Japan, life force energy is known as ki, and the practice of Reiki is moving this life force energy throughout the body’s energy channels.
Even western scientists have begun to recognize a “bio-field” or energy field surrounding the physical body. Biologist and author, Rupert Sheldrake, writes about the theory of morphic resonance. These are invisible fields that surround and connect all matter and allow species to communicate telepathically.
Prana, chi, morphic fields or auras, they all describe parts of the same concept; an energy field that extends around your physical body, housing your thoughts, feelings and life force energy. From this energetic field, we can interact telepathically with others by sending our thoughts and feelings out into the energetic web of connectivity to our friend on the other side of the planet, or to our child in need.
As we begin to understand auras and energy fields, we come to the awareness that we are all connected. What affects one affects the whole. You truly are your brother’s keeper and the thoughts and feelings you transmit out into the cosmos have a lasting impact on the energy system of the entire world.
Exercise: Telepathic Communication
Here is something to try the next time you are on the phone with a close friend. As you speak with your friend, close your eyes and visualize your energy emanating out in waves from your body. Imagine your thoughts and feelings leaving your space and traveling out, touching the other person’s space. Now, feel the other person’s thoughts coming toward you, much like a sonar wave. As the other person is talking, see if you can alter the feel of their vibration as it enters your space.
After you hang up the phone, keep your eyes closed for a moment. Sit in stillness and feel the energy in your room. Has it changed? Can you feel some of that other person’s energy hanging around? Are you in a better mood? Do you feel a warm glow spread throughout your body when you think of them? You might think that particular feeling is just a thought hanging around in your mind, but feel into that energy. Is that warm glow only in your body, or could it be that the feeling is in the air around you? Is there lightness to the space around you because your friend said something that made you smile?
Interesting, isn’t it? Welcome to the world of energy!
