Think Energy is Woo Woo? Read This.
If you’re interested in mindset work and personal development, you’ve probably heard plenty about the importance of energy and raising your vibration. But what does that mean? What are “vibes” really? And what is the scientific basis of energy work, and how can we apply it to how we manifest or create our reality? Keep reading to learn the scientific research behind how we are all connected by our energy, and what that means for you as an energetic being!
Every now and then I encounter someone who asks me something like, “You say ‘everything is energy,’ but what does that even mean?”
Sometimes it’s even more like, “I don’t know, all that energy stuff is a little too ‘woo woo’ for me!”
For years, I’ve known and believed to be true that our thoughts and our energy radiate from our bodies and affect the world around us.
I’ve seen too many miracles and synchronicities in my life to not believe this to be true.
So many people disregard energy when it comes to creating and improving their life, and that is just unfortunate because they’re missing out on so many important data points that could actually be the missing link they’re needing to create the success they’re looking for. This post serves as a reference to put qualitative data behind the fact that we are all energy, and utilizing energy is instrumental in creating a better life.
Now, one of the exciting things going on behind-the-scenes at YES SUPPLY is that we’ve brought an incredible researcher and neuropsychologist onto our team who has been doing the work to share the proof and evidence that each and every human has unlimited potential within them, and back it up with science and research.
There are new discoveries about our DNA that were previously undetected and unmeasurable by science that are now coming to our awareness.
That there is a light and energy that is resonated from our DNA and can affect the world around us depending on the signal we are giving off.
When I learned this, I got chills, reflecting on the power within us all.
And we’re just at the beginning of the work we’re doing to understand the scientific connections between all of these topics and our human potential to influence and shape our reality.
So keep reading to learn about some of the science behind energy, and get a feel for the true meaning of “good vibes!”
Everything is Energy
Every single thing in this Universe is made up of energy… from this text you’re reading, to your eyes reading it, to the computer or phone that you’re reading it on… all are in a perpetual state of motion that gives off energy.
Even something that seems still, like a grain of sand, is still made up of atoms that are pulsating with energy.
This energy emits vibrations at various frequencies which can be measured in the form of waves.
Absolutely everything in the Universe interacts with your energy.
Your subconscious mind extends out beyond your mind, and even slightly beyond your physical body, via your biofield
The human biofield spans out to approximately 6 feet or more beyond our body, made up mostly of measurable electromagnetic energy. (Note: 6 feet is what is measured, but there’s evidence it could be much more.)
Our bodies generate this biofield through brain waves, heart beats, infrared energy, and biophotons.
What are biophotons?
If you’ve followed YES SUPPLY for awhile, you may have heard me say that you’re a being of infinite light and love… but get this:
It turns out that we, as energetic beings, are constantly radiating light in the form of biophotons! This light source originates in our DNA and biophotons radiate from our skin 24/7. It’s just that our eyes would need to be 1000x stronger to perceive it directly.
We’re only at the beginning of understanding how much this influences our environment on a molecular level!
As you’ve probably already noticed, your personal energy field is being bombarded all the time.
New energy comes to you through the people you spend time with, the spaces you inhabit, the food you eat, internet connections/wifi, the chemicals you put on or in your body, and the things you do.
It’s also been shown that when pairs or groups of distinct objects are together long enough, their vibrations begin to synchronize. This phenomenon is referred to as spontaneous self-reorganization or resonance.
Think of a school of fish, or the neurons in our brains, or even a planet and its moon.
When their energies vibrate at the same frequency, they begin to resonate and amplify that energy even further. In music, this is known as harmonic resonance. It can also be referred to as sympathetic vibration.
In fact, it’s even been shown that within a range of approximately 5 feet, two humans’ heart beats can affect one another by entering a state of entrainment, or locked frequencies, that lead to synchronized beats.
Because of these energetic laws, a dance of energy is constantly happening within us, and between us and everything else in the universe!
How does this apply to our thoughts and our potential for change? Let’s get into it!
Brain Waves as the Energy of Your Mind
We can think of our brain as an orchestra, and our brain waves as a symphony.
It’s well-known that brain activity – our thoughts – determine the frequencies, or the energy patterns we send out into the universe.
Think of our energy as a signal, making us known to the universe.
Our signal attracts and resonates with energy that is similar to it, and changes in the presence of energy that is not similar to it.
Entire lines of scientific research, stretching across fields from physics to philosophy, draw on these principles of energy.
Therapy treatments, such as neurofeedback, can even measure and manipulate our brain wave patterns as a way of training our brain to think differently. Evidence supports this method as a treatment for anything from depression to anxiety.
You may have heard me talk about how our thoughts create our reality, and this is why I am so passionate about the tools we teach in the YES SUPPLY METHOD, like Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), that allow you to be more conscious of those thoughts and work with them to create your YES life.
We think over 70,000 thoughts per day… and almost all of them are subconscious. These thoughts are influencing our brain wave emissions, or our “signature vibration.”
What’s so amazing about that is that we can take responsibility for the energy we live in and send out to others, and to notice how our daily environment is influencing our energy.
…You’re able to shift out of unconsciously emitting a vibration that’s a match to what you don’t want in life and start emitting a vibration that’s a match to what you do want in life.
How Thoughts Become Things
If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.
– Bob Proctor
As a mindset coach who’s obsessed with everything about the subconscious mind, I’m constantly reading, learning, and studying the connection between our minds and our outer reality.
That said, the paradox here is that because we have to use our minds to study the mind, we may never truly know the full extent of its mysteries.
A quantum physicist would tell you that we can’t even observe, let alone understand the brain in its entirety… because when we observe what is happening to us, we change the outcome of reality!
The double slit experiment proves this:
But for the purposes of the work that we do in the YES SUPPLY METHOD to coach our clients to success, it’s useful to look at the relationship between intention and outcome.
Intention is a directed thought to perform an action or reach an outcome.
In our daily lives, we set intentions all the time – planning dinner or organizing a party, choosing an outfit for the day, or studying for an exam all involve thoughts of our intentions.
But as so many coaches, leaders, and speakers have talked about, there’s more and more evidence all the time that our thoughts become things.
In NLP, we talk about how thoughts become behaviours, behaviours become actions, and actions become our outcomes.
However, recent biophysical research tells even more of the story, and studies on the power of human intention have yielded fascinating results.
For example, in one psychological experiment, people were asked to wear a pair of headphones and listen to a series of tones that were sent to either their left or right ear. These tones were randomly generated by a computer.
With no intervention, it was clear over time that the randomly generated pattern resulted in a statistically equal chance that a person would receive a tone in either their right ear or their left ear.
Then, the researchers asked each person to mindfully think about the side from which they would prefer to hear the tone – the right or the left.
Within a single session, the chance of the computer playing the tone from their preferred side increased to likelihood beyond a statistical doubt.
In other words, this simple experiment demonstrated that it is possible to will something to happen with powerful thoughts of intention.
What powerful intentions do you want to set today?
We’re All Connected by Energy
As you can see, the Universe is far more connected than we know.
In fact, scientific research tells us that there must exist at least billions of connected multiverses — we don’t know if they are “parallel,” “bubble,” or “daughter” universes — but physicists are working on that!
So this means that parts of “us” likely exist elsewhere in this Universe and likely other multiverses, and our actions in each one ripple and affect one another.
If you study The Universal Laws, you’ll see how this concept perfectly relates to my favorite, The Law of Divine Oneness.
The Law of Divine Oneness states that everything is connected to everything else.
This means that what we think, say, do, and believe will have a corresponding effect on everyone and everything in the Universe around us.
Once I learned about The Law of Divine Oneness, I started realizing that the energy I put out will always come back to me, one way or another.
This helped me see that I have a ripple effect on every person I interact with, and that I always have a hand in creating the reality I live in.
So let me leave you with this:
How will you act knowing that you’re connected to everyone and everything?
