The Energy That Surrounds Us All – How To Tune Into Your Light And Your Soul

We all know that there is energy surrounding us that we never see. Radio waves, micro-waves, these are energies that are all around, but we never see them. If we didn’t have micro-wave ovens, or radios, we wouldn’t even realize these energies exist.

Even though we can not see something, it does not mean that it doesn’t exist. Take our country for instance…..Did America only exist once it was discovered? During the time before America was “discovered”, had you tried to tell anyone that if you went to the end of the “flat” earth you would come to a country called America…..well, they would have just thought you were crazy. The same is true for radio waves, even before the invention of the radio, they existed. So what is real and what is not real, is a very complicated thing. Just because we see something, doesn’t mean it is there, and just because we don’t see something, doesn’t mean  it’s not. Have I lost you yet?

Not only do we have energy that surrounds us, but we are energy. Every cell in our bodies is energy. And, nothing that we see with our eyes is actually as it seems, at a molecular level nothing is solid, not even our bodies. But, that is the science of things, and not really what I want to talk about here. I want to talk about how we can each use our “personal” energies, to our own advantage. Like most things in life, it is just a matter of awareness. Taking the leap of faith and believing that it is there is the hardest part, once you do that, it’s just a matter of learning how to feel it, or tune into it.

What ever our spiritual beliefs are, most of us believe in the idea of a soul, or the part of us that makes us who we are. We all know it is there, but none of us know where. There is nothing “currently” in anatomy or physiology that can explain what or where our soul is. I say “currently”, because even things that seem impossible to us today to understand, may be very explainable in ten, twenty, or a hundred years from now. For the sake of this idea, lets just say the soul exists somewhere in the area of either our hearts or our brains, which ever you feel more comfortable using with this exercise.

It is my belief, that our souls are like the conductors of a symphony, only the symphony is our “light” or our “energy”. I use the word “light” in order to give a visual to discribe our “personal energy”, that eminates from our soul. Close your eyes for a minute, and in your mind’s eye, picture your soul with beautiful light eminating from it.

Now, imagine the light shining from within you, and radiating all around you. Visualize an infinite stream of your light, that can radiate all the way to the heavens, and back to earth again to touch and surround anyone you care about in an embrace of light and love… including yourself.

Practice this type of meditation, where you visualize your light, (or your love, or your soul, or your energy…..what every you want to call it) within you, and feel the peace and comfort that embraces you. When you are done, remember that even when you stop picturing this light, it is still there. Just as the radio waves are still there even when you turn off the radio. The energy of your soul goes on whether your body is tuning into it or not.

Now for the test. Can the awareness of this energy, the awareness of your light…..can it make a difference in your life? I believe it can. Not only can it be comforting to meditate with this thought and visualization…..but, try to “project” your light onto other people and other situations. Visualize your light surrounding your children or your spouse when they are away from home. If you are going to be in a situation that would normally make you uncomfortable, send your light to it before you get there, and picture your light surrounding the people that will be there. Notice the difference in your experiences when you allow your energy to soften and comfort your life and your surroundings.

If this is a totally new concept for you, and you think it sounds “crazy”, just take some baby steps towards opening your mind to this idea. Make a conscious effort to become aware of your energy and your light, try it for a week and see if you notice any difference. Like anything else in life, you may be ready to try something new, or you might not be. You may not be ready right now, but you may be in a few weeks, or a few months, or even a few years. Whenever you are ready, the light is within you, it never goes out, it is just a matter of whether you choose to tune into it or not.

“Any idea seriously entertained tends to bring about the realization of itself.” — Joseph Chilton Pearce

If this is an idea that you have worked with before, maybe this is a call to begin giving it more attention. Maybe something has been blocking you from tuning into this energy, and maybe if you take some time to meditate on it, what is blocking you may fall away. What ever the case, I hope you will allow your light to shine love and hope to all the corners of your life.

  1. Interesting. I am a firm believer in energy untapped around us. I am going to read some more of your site.

  2. “SurfaceEarth” — Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you will be checking out my site. Up until now, I have only touched on this idea in some of my other posts. I’ve only been blogging since last month, so if you are looking for more detailed information, you may not find what you are looking for just yet. Although, if I get a good response with this post, I will tailor some more of my future posts in this direction. I just don’t want to “scare” anyone off, that might not be open to this type of idea. I’m trying to keep this site diverse in many ways to “be the change in yourself”….in all aspects of life, so I don’t want to get too far from that theme.

    Thanks again for your comment, I hope you like the site.

    Wonder why we have to be timid in simply expressing thoughts that may benefit others. Your site could not be more gentle in its message.

  4. “SurfaceEarth” — Thank you for the kind words. Come back anytime.

    hello catherine,
    i am christin from greece. i believe the energy surrounds us. your blog is really good and easy to understand.
    3days later i am supposed to make a persuasive speech and i decided to make people be aware of that energy around us. i wonder if you could give me some examples that make them think and start to believe it. visual examples may be more effective i guess.
    thank you for your help.
