Do you ever feel like you have an antenna for someone else’s emotions? That your colleague’s negativity gives you a bad mood? Or that your sister’s company has positively changed your mindset after you cried? Science can now confirm that this is indeed how it works: there is a constant energetic exchange between ourselves and the people in our environment.
If you have ever heard of the term aura or energy field, then you know that humans have some energy field around them. Humans have been experimenting with different energy fields for thousands of years before even scientifically proving that this energy existed! Without energy, there would be no universe. The universe is energy!
Energetic charge and energetic exchange
We have always thought of the air around us as empty, but nothing could be further from the truth! It is also energetically charged, an infinite field of energy and information. And that is what we feel when an angry person enters our own “energetic bubble”. We absorb that energy, and it affects our feelings.
While we are probably decades away from the total understanding of how energy works and how it affects all living things, we can already see a continuous energetic exchange.
We are steadily discovering new fascinating facts about how energy works. Not so long ago, a study at the University of Bielefeld in Germany concluded that plants could absorb energy from other plants.
The researchers studied algae (Chlamydomonas reinhardtii), and they discovered that the algae have an alternative energy source in addition to photosynthesis and that they could absorb energy from other algae.
Like the algae from this research, our bodies are sponges that can absorb and release energy. This is precisely why it can feel uncomfortable for some people to be in a crowd. The great mix of energies and emotions can feel overwhelming to someone sensitive to this.
The Battery Effect: tantric energy exchange
For the exchange of energy, you don’t have to do anything. An energetic field surrounds us by nature, reaching up to 1.5 meters around our bodies. Everyone who comes near us can feel that field and vice versa; we can feel their energetic field. The heart generates this electromagnetic field, which acts as a transmitter.
The HeartMath Institute in the United States has been researching for 40 years on the human heart, the energetic charge the heart generates, and how this affects the environment.
The exchange of energy with other people can also take place consciously. A good example is a tantric practice, where two people who love each other build an energetic circular system. This technique involves exchanging energy through breathing and visualization. This technique is also called ‘the battery effect’ or ‘the battery effect.’
The shift from feeling to reasoning
Over the centuries, humanity has lost its connection with nature. Slowly our spiritual insights and abilities have disappeared. Our ratio has replaced our spiritual powers. We mostly experience emotions based on our reasoning.
Now that we finally understand how the energy exchange between people works, we can benefit enormously from it. Our mind is energy and in fact, “being supernatural” is nothing more than an ability to interpret the interplay of different energies.
This wisdom has been known to civilizations on all our continents for centuries. Science has long ignored these fields of research. They did not want to be vulnerable and perhaps end up outside of established science and be labeled as ‘crazy. Few scientists dared to question these issues and have now been able to prove how energy exchange works.
Fortunately, scientists such as Dr. Joe Dispenza and Gregg Braden do get off the beaten track and are researching this.
Example of energetic exchange
At home, you are sitting on the couch after a hard day’s work. Tired but satisfied, you drink a nice cup of tea. While the food is simmering, immerse yourself in an interesting article that you have been eager to read. Your partner comes home. He curtly asks if dinner is ready, and it’s pretty clear that his working day was not great. When you ask for a kiss, you get a rough smudge on his unshaven cheek. The energy that surrounds him feels even more challenging. Not nice! Soon you will feel rushed, and you are less looking forward to a lovely evening of Netflix.
You see how the energetic exchange can have a huge impact on your mood and your relationship in the long term. Of course, you don’t have to be receptive to that negative energy. The more you know this and the stronger you are in your energy, the less you will be bothered by other people’s emotions.
