Energy: The Silver Bullet for Health and Vitality

This article was written by Colleen Deatsman
posted under Self-Help

Energy, energy, I need more energy! In this over-busy, hyper-stressed modern western culture, the mantra I hear most is the cry for more energy. We think that if only we had more energy we could complete all of our tasks and responsibilities and still have energy left over for leisure activities. We think if only we had more energy we would not be bored, angry, depressed, anxious, tense, or feel so stuck or lost. We think if only we had more energy we would have the patience to be kinder and gentler with our families instead of lashing out from frustration. We think if only we had more energy we would not feel so sick and tired all the time. We think if only we had more energy when we looked in the mirror we would see a younger, more radiant face rather than the world-weary one we currently see. We are absolutely correct, and having more energy is really much easier than we think.

I hear it in the grocery store, post office, airport, restaurants, my workshops, and my counseling/healing practice: the voice of energy-depleted people resounds in a buzz of discontent, negativity, imbalance, and disharmony. In countries where abundance is evidenced by urban sprawl and SUVs parked on paved city streets, a poverty of a different kind plagues its people. We have forgotten how to connect with energy. As a sufferer of chronic fatigue immune deficiency syndrome and fibromyalgia for ten years, I did, too. The key to my recovery is energyóconnecting with energy every single day, all throughout the day. It is also the key to your recovery from any malady you are experiencing and the means by which we can all reclaim and maintain vibrant health and well-being.

Energy is the essence of life. It is the sustenance that feeds us and is the source that creates a balanced, whole, integrated self of body, mind, emotions, and soul. To be whole and healthy we must have ample energy flowing throughout our body and energy system.

The concept of connecting with energy is not new, but it has become a lost skill in our post-industrial society, where we are not taught the methods or value of connecting with energy. Millions of people know how to plug in a computer, turn it on, and operate it while not knowing how to plug their own energy system in to any of its multiple power sources, turn it on, or operate it. Along with losing the know-how to connect with energy, we have also lost the understanding of what energy is and the wisdom of using it for personal and global benefit. Unless a person is a quantum physicist or an energy healer, they probably have only a vague understanding of what energy is and how it works. It is no wonder we are in such disarray. It pains me to see so many people suffering needlessly when all it takes to be energy-filled is a little intention, focus and know-how. I wrote Energy for Life: Connect with the Source to help remedy this imbalance.

Energy for Life accomplishes this through practical application and education. It is an inspirational guidebook that leads readers through multitudes of easy-to-do, empowering exercises that plug them into their power sources. The accompanying CD makes it easy to connect with energy by practicing dynamic energy movement exercises or relaxing into an altered state of consciousness and journeying to oneís sacred healing medicine place. At the same time, Energy for Life takes bold steps in defining and explaining energy in its differing aspects and discusses the consciousness of energy as no other book on the market. Do you wonder what the differences are between personal energy, life force energy and source energy? Did you know that energy is conscious and intelligent? Allow this book to enlighten you.

Page by page, the doors of understanding will open as you learn practical skills to manifest powerful energy in your everyday life. Through succinct explanation, step-by-step instructions and revitalizing exercises you will learn about energy, activate your own personal life force energy, release blockages, stop energy leakages and power up through direct connection with universal life force, spiritual and source energies. Functional ideas for application and easy integration of the exercises are included to help you manifest vitality simply.

Feeling vibrant and full of abundant energy is your natural state of being. The exercises in this book and CD are a sure bet for a healthier, happier, more energy-filled life. Come on, havenít you struggled long enough? Plug into the passion of being alive and connect with the world of energy within and around you!

A few years ago, my youngest son was arguing with his friend about the age of Honey, our wild golden retriever. His friend insisted that Honey was five, because the dog had been alive that many years. Said Gabe, "Sometimes Honey is really one, like when he chews our shoes; sometimes he's 89, like when he pretends he's too old to listen when you... read this article
