ENERGY…. Although I have been an energy healer, channeler, and Spiritual Intuitive for about 7 years now I STILL think the word “energy” sounds SO new age-ish, don’t you? Let me simplify and demystify this simple word’s meaning, and explain what healers like myself know energy to be.
Energy = Free floating emotions and thoughts. That is way more simple that you thought it would be, right?
Now that you know this I would like to invite you to take a moment after you read this article and think back to a time when you were in a GREAT mood, TOTALLY loving life, then you walked into a house or business and immediately felt edgy, or even angry, for no reason what so ever! It has happened to me countless times and unfortunately, before I understood “energy”, it’s effect on me, was the basis of my depression, anxiety, and several other issues I struggled though for 16 years.
In 2009 I developed the ability to SEE energy, auras, angels and spirit guides with my eyes so I became driven to understand how it all worked. I quickly learned that my sudden mood shifts we’re caused by another person’s energy, or free floating thoughts and emotions, entering into what I call my snow globe or in other words my personal bubble and field of consciousness. The mood shift I would experience as their energy came into my snow globe was due to my brain processing those experiences as my own.
Here’s an example : Let’s say it’s date night at the house. All is great, but you need to run out to buy butter for the popcorn. You happily trot on out to the store while your happy date patiently waits for you to get back. While at the store you get rung up by a lady whose spouse is FURIOUS with her! She does not share this with you. In fact you hardly say a few words and then smile and wave goodbye. Five minutes later you walk through the door of your house and you get a nagging feeling that your date is FURIOUS at you!
Your mind scans for reasons…. Did I take too long? Did I buy the wrong butter? Your mind pulls up a memory of a time 5 years ago when you were late for a date and your partner at that time yelled and screamed and broke up with you. You begin to panic!
Meanwhile your emotions start to build into defensiveness because you know you didn’t do anything wrong! WHY is he SO FURIOUS!? Although you can’t seem to think of why he could be mad, your mind (usually in the background) will continue to scan for reasons as to why that cashiers energy is actually your own. This is the “minds” job!
To process the energy that passes through “our bubble” and find a person, a place, a memory, that matches the energy it is encountering. In this case the cashier’s energy of being in trouble with her spouse got into your field and now you are absolutely positive that without a fraction of a doubt you are in BIG BIG trouble! You even have a SICK feeling in the pit of your stomach that you may even think it’s your intuition telling you something!! Has anything similar EVER happened to you?
This “phenomenon” is SERIOUSLY how most fights start not only between lovers and family, but most misunderstandings in the work place revolve around messy energy and the assumptions that we allow our minds to pull from our data base of past experiences that come with it. All it takes is one person assuming one thing based on a “gut feeling” they get about why a coworker/family member happens to be doing something and then things start to spiral out from there.
So let’s go back to the happy couple watching their movie. If she doesn’t realize QUICKLY that she picked up the cashier’s “my husband is so mad he is going to leave me because I cheated on him” energy she will most likely give him the silent treatment all night because he is not telling her why he is REALLY mad at her and then he will turn around and assume she has done something wrong and start accusing her (out loud or with in his own mind) of things she did not do. Do you see where I am going with this???
This can happen with ANYTHING because we are all big bubbles that I like to refer to as snow globes of emotions living our lives and most people, especially those under age 65 are empathic. Empathic people can feel other people’s emotions and if they are not very careful they will go through life experiencing things based on emotions that are not all theirs.
I believe that mental illness, addiction, alcoholism, and most of the “disabilities” children are being labeled with these days are stemmed from the human ability to feel other’s emotions and read other’s minds while being completely unaware that we are doing so.
Starting right now if you want to see how sensitive you are to energy and you want to see how it all works I invite you to just say in your head “Higher self I ask that you stay connected to me and make me aware of the energy that should not be in my snow globe and I ask that you remove it immediately so that it does not effect me”.
Then all you have to do is notice what you notice when you go from one place to another running errands or to a friend’s house. Also, notice how work feels when you are there alone as opposed to when certain people arrive. Places change with the people that are in them. If you notice that your mood changes instantly at ANYTIME and that the mood is not going away as the higher self removes the energy it may mean that you are holding onto the energy for some reason.
It is usually because the energy represents something you have personally gone through so your mind wants to solve it and therefore hangs onto it fordear life. If this is the case rather than experiencing the emotions of that awful break up from 2005 all over again you can do the following : (at the bottom there is a video that walks you though this)
Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and say in your head : “I am a snow globe.” Imagine that you are the statue in the middle of a snow globe with snowflakes and water swirling all around you. Feel what it feels like to be in your snow globe then say “I am alone in my snow globe, I am my creator self” and imagine a HUGE ball of bright white or golden light dropping down over you, into your snow globe, down through your head, through your body and out your feet into the center of the earth where anyone or anything that is not you and that is not in alignment with your highest self will be flushed away from you and transmuted into unconditional love using the energy of the earth and the white light above you.
This can take you 30 minutes if you want to make it a meditation or you can do it in 20 seconds when walking into the office. The key here is the you are becoming aware of the energy around you and learning that you and only you are in control of it and if something or someone has energy around them that makes you feel badly, you can protect yourself and clear yourself regardless of the situation because you are the creator of your own reality!
Now, go about your day and maybe just maybe this week you can make it through with out any arguments or mood swings. haha! YEAH right, huh? But hey, let’s give it a shot anyway!

There is no video at bottom of article like you stated.
Well, this is a good introduction for newbies. Let’s clarify a few things:
1. People over 65 are just as “empathic” as those under that line. In fact, most of us who are truly empathic get more so as we age…or maybe as we become wiser and more understanding–compassionate in our responses to the energy we feel from out there.
2. The word energy is not new age. It’s been used by Taoists ( an other mystical traditions) since well-before the time of Jesus. It is simply over-used by some New Agers.
3. The energy of emotion and thought is chemical and very physical. So the “feelings” your’e speaking about are sympathy, not empathy. Empathy is compassionate, not judgmental.
