I just read an interesting dialog between two people. One person was worried that she was losing her energy to those who were more successful in life.. and they – like predators – were “living off of her energy”. In this case energy that was talk about was more that of the consciousness origin.
Another commenter, Scott Masterton, explained it rather well.. and what he says is profound enough to be remembered for most of us. Its how you use the infinite and all encompassing energy. The more you use it to negative ends.. the more it can hurt you. Worth a read:
Everything (including all matter) is energy, so the idea of “sucking energy” from another by an act of will in order to become successful is sort of meaningless.
You can block the energy that you have access to by your beliefs or what you put your attention on (in Chinese medicine Q’i or Chi goes where the mind goes) but it can’t really be stolen. Maybe a better term to use than “block energy”, is maybe to say that you can invest your energy in things that don’t serve you.
Of course this is all done unconsciously. For example holding a grudge against another person or persons is a tremendous drane of energy as that energy must “create” another ego (the imagined qualities of that other or others), in order to sustain the viewpoint that we might have of them.
That’s why homeopathic healers of all disciplines (even MD’s and hard scientists are discovering this to be true) say that all healing begins with love and forgiveness. From a pragmatic standpoint any grudge that I hold is energy that I can’t use for healing or manifesting whatever I want in my life.
(broken into paragraphs by me; as also the emphasis was add for better reading)
