Spring bursts forth with gay abandon. Birds sing, leaves expand, flowers open and chickens lay eggs. Palpable energy fills the air.
Each day brings new surprises. The land grows greener by leaps and bounds.
With sun shining brightly, I’m pulled outdoors. While my eyes inhale vibrant color, my feet dance in rhythm with spring-time energy. Sensing the energy that surrounds me, I delight in this time of the year.
Upon returning inside, I sit at the computer and find myself reflecting on Harmony Center’s spring workshops. With no intent on my part, they each ended up focusing on energy. Though different in focus, their main themes revolve around energy.
So what, actually, is energy?
Great minds have pondered this question for ages. It addresses the Great Mystery of Life, with both science and religion seeking to answer the question. In some ways it is the arena where science and religion intersect.
Energy involves the activity of the electromagnetic field around and within all living beings. This energy connects all of creation, forming the inter-relatedness of all beings. It can be measured, physically sensed and some people even see this energy.
While most people have times when we pick up energy vibrations, for we talk about experiencing “good vibes” when in the presence of certain people or places, we often don’t trust this information or know how to tune into it on a consistent basis. For most of us, tuning into energy is an undeveloped skill.
So I’m looking forward to Harmony Center’s next workshop, “Opening to the Energy Field” on June 8th from 1pm to 5pm. I expect to learn more about energy and further develop my ability to sense it. Maybe I’ll even get to see it.
