“Energy runs in established patterns or habits. Left to their own devices in the modern world, your energy systems must rely on patterns out of resonance with the environment. If you are to thrive, you must participate in the evolution of your body’s energy patterns.”
– Donna Eden, Energy Medicine: Balancing Your Body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality.
Our bodies are continually trying to adapt to an environment that they did not choose. In fact our bodies still have energy software to live in the wilds, yet our daily modern life is anything but that for most of us. We are blasted daily by electromagnetic radiation, artificial chemicals in our food, and high concentrations of pollutants in our air and water systems. This means that our immune systems are continually on alert – or emergency response – which drains our energy and depletes our vital life force. In addition, the constant stress of modern life activates the “fight or flight” response of the sympathetic nervous system which puts everything in overdrive and depletion.
This constant activation has costs to it. There is a chronic request for more and more energy for the immune and fight-or-flight response which then undermines overall health, vitality and a feeling of well being. The normal pattern of healthy and balanced energy systems become chaotic and reversed. We feel drained, our breathing is shallow, and we are open to mental and physical illness and disease taking over.
It is time for harmonizing with the forces of nature and a return to practices that are natural, friendly, and familiar to body, mind and soul. As we evolve by returning to balance within the natural energy systems of our own bodies, we communicate that to everyone and everything we touch.
The deep interconnection between matter, spirit, and subtle energy informs not only our health and well being, but that of the planet we inhabit. These subtle energy systems operate outside of the mind and are perhaps THE mastermind, if you will, behind the evolving universe. Everything is energy!
For a 5-minute daily practice that will keep your energy systems healthy and flowing (and your breathing alive and full) I invite you to explore these practices taught by Donna Eden. For more information on her and her husband, David Feinstein, Ph.D. please go to:
