Life Is Energy

My dear Friends,

Everything in life is energy. There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- that is not energy. Everything vibrates with this energy, and the number of vibrations, or wave patterns, within a given period of time is called the "frequency" with which the energy fluctuates. Energy is always fluctuating. Always. That is, energy never remains static. If energy were to ever remain static, everything would suddenly stand still. The physical world would simply stop, as in the freeze frame of the movie. In that moment life would end.

Life, then, could be defined as movement. When movement stops, life stops. We have nothing to worry about, however, because movement never stops. It is built into the system. It is the system. This information is more than esoteric data. It has some practical implications that may have escaped you. It has applications in day-to-day living that could change your life in remarkable ways.

For instance, ever notice how energy flows? Energy never remains at Straight Up Zero. If there was such a thing as an Energy-O-Meter, you would see that the needle is always moving. And the meter is very sensitive. Very sensitive. You would see the needle swing wildly to the left or right of Dead Center with the slightest fluctuation in the vibe.

"Dead Center" would be an apt description of the moment when the needle is pointing straight up. That would mean there is Zero Fluctuation of the energy, hence no movement, hence no life. That would, indeed, be dead center!

Now, why I am bringing this all up here? Your energy in every single moment is either moving towards something or away from it. It is either attracting or repelling. It is either pulling something closer or pushing it farther away.

Within the phenomenon known as Space, "moving toward" something or "pulling" something closer is the same thing. It is the experience of shortening the space between two objects (or, in fact, two experiences). The way you think about a thing attracts it or repels it. That's because what you want is energy moving in one direction or the other. We call these "to and fro" energies "love" and "fear". Those are names of actual human emotions, but, in truth, they are simply our ways of describing E-motions -- that is, energy-in-motion. is always in motion. It's either moving toward something or away from it. It cannot do both and it cannot do neither. It is eternally doing one or the other. The swings of the meter to the left and the right of Dead Center are necessary, and part of the normal function of life. The fluctuation must occur, and so this business of moving toward something or away from it is not a question of "good" and "bad". One thing is not "better" than the other. It is just what "is".

That is important to understand. Otherwise, we might get into our judgments about it.

The trick with regard to energy is to learn how to regulate it so that you can control the ebb and flow. You are actually controlling the ebb and flow right now, but you may not be doing it consciously. Regulating energy is about conscious creation of the ebb and flow. It is about conscious attenuation of the vibration. It is about adjusting the frequency of your energy on purpose.

Because the needle on the Energy-O-Meter is so very sensitive, the slightest, tiniest, most minute fluctuation in your personal energy causes the reading to vary massively from one moment to the next. Even from one milli-second to the next. So we have this needle swinging wildly from left to right past zero, which is at center. The needle is never at Straight Up Zero except when it passes through Zero Point on its way left or right.

Now, with regard to any person, place, or thing in your life, ask yourself this question: On this day, am I moving towards this, or away from it? This will help explain why your relationship with your Significant Other is going the way it is going. Are you experiencing greater closeness or greater distance? Are you experiencing an increase in the energy's intensity, or a decrease?

More important, is the next remark you were going to make, or the next thing you are going to do, likely to swing the needle to the left or to the right? Is it getting warmer or is it getting colder in the environment of your heart? What is the "temperature" of your present interaction? To what "degree" do you see it changing the mood of the moment? To what extent will this shift to the left or the right of center affect the long term balance within the system?

These are interesting things to think about just before opening our mouths to say something to another. These are fascinating things to explore just before taking some action or making some choice, be it large or small, in the day-to-day process of our living. Is this action drawing me closer to, or pushing me further away from, my loved one? Are these words pulling that Special Other just a tiny bit further in, or moving that Special Other just a tiny bit further away? Which way is this sensitive meter pointing?

Of course, it can't always be at a +10. Sometimes it's going to be at -2 or -3. You can't have "up" without "down". You can't have "left" without "right". You can't have "cold" without "warm". You have to have the fluctuation. The fluctuation is good. It is necessary. It is, as we have said, part of the process. But here's something that most people don't understand about that process: You can control it. You can regulate it. Indeed, you are doing so in every moment. It is simply a question of whether you know what you are doing.

When you know what you are doing, it is called Conscious creation. Conscious creation is the deliberate construction of energy patterns in a particular frequency of fluctuation. To put this simply, it is the sending out of "good vibes" deliberately and intentionally. It is the activation of the choice to attract rather than repel, to move toward rather than away, to pull in rather than push out.

Is this what you were doing with the last thing that you said to the person with whom you want to feel closer? Read the last e-mail that you sent to that person. Do you think that it is swinging the needle to the right or to the left of Point Zero?

It's just a question...

With Love,

Is the world truly our oyster? Forgiveness for "perceived" wrongs, plus genuine "thankfulness" for the "blessing" of any opposition which impel us to reconsider our thoughts and actions for refinement , will move us closer to the zero point of the needle of which you speak. This is the power of the "fluidness" that is mentioned by another writer on SL today. ALL great stuff to consider for which I am truly grateful. It is truly a collective spirit at work here.

How do oysters make pearls? The initial "irritation" in the oyster was the catalyst for the resultant gem. We welcome it!

In 3d we have/had; chose or signed up , to contrast, to being polarized. In this 5th dimension so palatably present, it might be a possibility for no more contrast/or being polarized. Our souls have/can choose a new way to evolve.
Does forgiveness go away as we come out of judgment and judgment dissolves?
Perhaps pearls can be made without irritation, or a virus/fungus. Perhaps pearls in 5d are made with joy, inspiration, happiness, laughter, fun,and many other ways.

Rocks, plants, and animals...(including molluscs)? Time to "clam up" and be still?

"A great silent space holds all of nature in its embrace. It also holds you." (STILLNESS SPEAKS, by Eckhart Tolle)

"For there are moments when something new has entered into us, something unknown; our feelings grow mute in shy perplexity, everything in us withdraws, a stillness comes, and the new, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it and is silent."- Rainer Maria Rilke

F...eels like quotes as swords of light. :)

Great article on working with our energy. Thank you Neale!! And also the comments and discussion, NickosVG, Zorro, Cindy!

Just as with the making of the Diamond, who's to say, high pressure and heat of the earth are not the producers of love? A bud strives long and hard with its intention and the roots grow deep in conscious Co- Creation to become the flowering, and in its opening the rose in bloom.. A New Moon, first quarter, or that to the Full Moon are no less significant in offering it's qualities or purpose in the process and in phase, nor to in awe behold. Disemenating is the time of harvesting, just as waneing is transformation which leads to the seeding time. Beauty and love can be recognized, and found in movement, and the deep moments of stillness as well. Even in it's opposites, or cosmic squares ..are love.

I agree with you, SpiritDriver. You would think that those of us ushering in the New Earth would be more tempered to withstand a little heat in the kitchen without being afronted or fearful of losing precious unity. If you take a deeper look at it, it can often be perceived that fear of losing something is motivating more than fearing some friendly opposition that is viewed as judgemental and not spiritual. But the one that takes the royal cake is "spiritual brand protection". An initial briliant inspiration becomes a brand and all attention now funnels into that and the original openness that led to the insights is now limited to brand awareness and the brand becomes the "filter" for discussion and subconsciously must be defended at all costs. Brand position may override fluidness and true transparency. A true "let her rip" discussion becomes taboo. This is not limited to authors or speakers but to all of us with our pet spiritual ideas and biases.

Perhaps...dear wanted your meet with the STILLPOINT that GOES Beyond All human comprehension
thus LIFE ITSELF....That you call DEAD....because you compare .....uncomparable...LIFE with a state of denial
of LIFE ITSELF...That IS and IS unmovable...but ...IS Causing All Movement.
This Zeropoint...IS REALLY Full of become Manifest....
Perhaps you wished to hear Some-One say this HERE?....

"Seeking never ends, I think"

I hear you. Yep, it's called love, creation! ..and why we're here..right?!

So are you commenting on the awareness of the power of expressing and retaining the energy within. I am certainly finally understanding that!! And to do with love, and for that matter sex. Yes, it can be shared, but the energy does not have to be moving towards, or away from any external. Rather it really unfolds and also grows, found in its roots and expression, from within.

Don't know it that makes sense to you, but its what your words brought to me. Thank you for sharing.
