This has been a blog I have wanted to write for a while but it's a hard topic to put into words....the topic of energy. Not the kind of energy you wished you had at the end of a long day and you still have to get dinner organised....but the kind of energy that basically makes up who you are and everything in this world.
So yes, energy. It's what you are made up of and it also makes up all matter around you. I have to include this little extract from Symmetry magazine as it's just so cool and it tells us -
"About 99 percent of your body is made up of atoms of hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen. You also contain much smaller amounts of the other elements that are essential for life.
While most of the cells in your body regenerate every seven to 15 years, many of the particles that make up those cells have actually existed for millions of millennia. The hydrogen atoms in you were produced in the big bang, and the carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms were made in burning stars. The very heavy elements in you were made in exploding stars.
Scientists believe that almost all of your body’s mass comes from the kinetic energy happening between these atoms"
Even something that seems quite still, like a book on your bedside table or an apple in your fruit bowl, is actually just a bunch of atoms vibrating to keep the mass intact.
So I wanted to lead with all that amazing info because I deal a lot with energy these days in the form of how it moves through us (or gets stuck in us!) in an expressive form and that is in the form of emotions. E-motions literally is our energy in motion.
That may be in the form of anger, fear, happiness, sadness, shame or extreme joy. This energy is running through us all the time but it's when it doesn't have a great 'flow' or outlet that it can cause issues. This energy can be accessed and directed by emoting (letting our feelings come out!), acupuncture (by needling our meridian channels), meditation and focusing on our energy centres or chakras (read more about those here) and of course by taking an energy remedy such as flower essences.
Another amazing thing is that we also have all these energy layers surrounding our bodies which are also known as our energy bodies. We can even project this energy into the spaces and places we inhabit as well as leave some of our energy behind! Have you ever been somewhere that just made you feel different just by entering into that place? A good example is thinking about if you've ever been to a cemetery or a place that may have had a traumatic event happen there and you immediately feel that sadness or grief even though you had been feeling perfectly fine moments earlier? You might not have realised it at the time but what you were doing there was reading energy. You were feeling a collective energy of the place as well as the accumulated energy left behind from people who had visited there.
Being able to read the energy of a place or person is something we all have the ability to do and some of us may be more aware of this and put it into practice, and some of us may just be doing it more on a subconscious level.
You may wonder why you might feel immediately comfortable around someone you meet but I can tell you it is because they have a good energy going on! You may wonder why some people feel like they are silently telling you to back off and stay away, and I can tell you it's because they are feeling quite out of balance and you are reading an uncomfortable energy. So now you know it's not just facial expressions, actions and words that you are responding to but someone's energy!
Children and animals are even more in tune with the energy of people and places and are an excellent way to test out someone or somethings energy! It's good to be sensitive to their reactions to new people or places especially when it comes to our children as they may be reading something that is very uncomfortable to them that we can't feel in that moment. It's also interesting to note that while children are young, especially up to the age of 7, they are often still sharing their mothers energy body especially when they are in the same room. This is why I will often tell mums to take the same flower essence remedies as their children to increase the effectiveness.
Another amazing thing about our energy bodies is that they can expand (when we are feeling open and sociable) and contract (when we are feeling more introverted and needing to protect ourselves) so depending on how we are feeling, this will change how much energy we are putting out. Our energy bodies can even reach out and change the energy body of someone next to them! This is why you may feel calmer or even agitated/anxious around certain people as their energy body is actually altering the state of your energy body! And likely you are doing similar things to those around you depending on how you are feeling.
So these are all amazing reasons to be taking your flower essence blends to help direct and alter your energy states if you need to....and now you can also use them around your energy body and spaces! We have brought out an incredible new range of flower essence mists that are also combined with essential oils to further enhance the vibrational shifting!
These mists are used by spraying around your personal space, your homes, vehicles and work spaces and are incredible for altering the energy of you and the space you are present in.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about energy and how you can alter your own energy to feel differently! If you are new to energy remedies or flower essences and would like to read more about how they work, please read this blog HERE
