You’ll often hear people say, “He has good energy,” or “I like her energy,” but do you ever think about what that really means? The energy people give off can be hard to put into words, but you know it when you feel it – and it’s the reason you’re especially drawn to some people, and not so much to others.
When someone meets you for the first time, they might know what you do for a living, hear what you have to say, and see how you dress and what you look like. All those things contribute to how they perceive you – but your energy speaks even louder.
What role does energy play in our lives?
A big one! Everything in the universe is made of energy and has its own unique vibration, including you. Each one of us is in a constant state of receiving and radiating energy, good and bad. Positive energy is infinite, effortless, and rooted in love and compassion. Dark energy is denser and rooted in fear and negativity.
Your personal energy field contains an impression of every thought, feeling and experience you’ve ever had, and it’s also affected by the energy fields of other people you encounter. I sometimes think we’re all like giant sponges, holding onto everything that ever happened to us, and soaking up other people’s energy as we encounter them.
But some of the things you’re holding onto are probably NOT serving you – and might be making you feel sick, stuck, or uninspired. For example:
- Unexamined emotions, suppressed memories, trauma, and anything you’re pushing down and refusing to face can interfere with your energy flow and even make you ill.
- Refusing to forgive and holding on to hurt and resentment toward others can create walls that stand between you and the positive relationships you long for.
- Old “stories” from your childhood can translate into negative self-talk as an adult. Maybe you were the kid who struggled with math, was clumsy, shy, or bad at sports. Those things shouldn’t define you as an adult – but they will if you don’t release those beliefs!
Your energy attracts those things that match its frequency. If you’re coming from a place of love, your energy is light, clear, and attracts positive people and things to you. When you’re anxious, angry or depressed, you risk attracting more negative experiences.
So, knowing that, how can you make sure your energy is pure and positive?
Here are the keys to keeping your energy field clean, clear, and strong:
1. Take Care of Your Body
First things first, for a healthy mind, body, and auric field, eat well and get enough sleep. Strive for balance between work, relaxation, and exercise. It’s easy to get so focused on tasks and obligations that you put self-care at the bottom of your list. Don’t do it. Make your own wellness a top priority.
2. Embrace Mindful Movement
Stimulate the flow of energy in your body with activity. Yoga, Thai Chi, walking or hiking in nature, swimming are all wonderful ways to take care of your mind, body, AND your energy.
3. Awareness Equals Improvement
Everything improves when you apply focus and awareness to it. By concentrating on your energy field, you can bring healing where you need it most.

4. Practice Gratitude and Forgiveness
Forgiveness isn’t excusing someone’s bad behavior – it’s refusing to let it harm you any more. Holding a grudge blocks YOUR energy, so give yourself the gift of letting go! Speaking of gifts – gratitude opens up your heart and helps you to express love. Make it a regular practice to send unspoken gratitude and love to others, and you’ll help heal them – and yourself.
Focusing on these key areas will help you to tap into your inner healer – you’ll not only experience health and vitality in your own life, but you will shine your healing light on those around you.
