The Evolution of Energy SourceBook

This article was written by Jill Henry
posted under Chakras & Energy Work

I didn’t plan to write a book. The book evolved from my website. I didn’t plan to build a website. The website evolved from our store. We (my husband Charlie and I) didn’t plan to open a store. The store evolved from finding ourselves temporarily unemployed in the Smoky Mountains. We didn’t plan to be unemployed, which evolved from completing three-year contracts as physical therapists. We didn’t plan to be contract physical therapists; that evolved from buying land in the mountains. We didn’t plan to buy land in the mountains. The spontaneous purchase of land was made the day after we had spent a week with an Indian Guru who was passing through our city. We didn’t plan to study with a guru; that evolved after we advertised for his concert through our store. We didn’t plan to open the first metaphysical store in our town. The store evolved from my dissertation on Development and Learning for Transformation. I didn’t plan to write a metaphysical dissertation. The dissertation evolved from my practice of meditation. I did, however, plan to practice meditation.

And there you have it: the perfect flow of energy when one taps into the Source. It’s unexpected, unplanned, and perfect in its outcome. That’s what Energy SourceBook is about—how to tap into energy and use it for healing, success, prosperity, adventure, and anything else you desire.


The Beginning
I met my husband in 1980 when we were both Assistant Professors of Physical Therapy at the Medical College of Georgia. I was career-driven, stressed out, and determined to make tenure before I was forty. I began my doctoral studies, made tenure, and became even more stressed out. During my comprehensive exams I reached my limit, and finally “came to my senses.” I began to read metaphysical books, to study meditation, and to practice a daily mindfulness technique. I completed my dissertation and directed my studies towards Transpersonal Psychology and Adult Development. In essence, my metaphysical dissertation was about the possibilities of learning, growing, and evolving from within. Shortly after receiving my Doctorate of Education (EdD), I realized that I had evolved past my secure faculty tenure, and quit. I opened a metaphysical bookstore, The Relaxation Station. The store attracted teachers from all aspects of metaphysics. They taught Reiki, Gemstone Healing, Hypnosis, Meditation, Yoga, Chi Gong, Tarot, and much more. Then we practiced more meditation with the Swami and found ourselves standing on land in North Carolina, knowing that we were to buy it. From that point on, we have taken advantage of each new opportunity the Universe has presented to us. We moved to the mountains and opened another metaphysical store, Mountain Valley Center, complete with a public outdoor stone Labyrinth in a beautiful mountain glade.


The Book
In 1999 I placed a small button on our website that said “Click here to be added to our mailing list.” After several hundred people had clicked, I realized they were asking for something in return. I collected my notes from over the years on metaphysics and began to write a series of articles. For four years, one article each month was published free to mailing list members. After the first three years, I developed a workshop based on the articles called “Feel the Flow” (the original title for this book), and now offer it to Nurses, PTs, and Massage Therapists for CEU credit (approved by their respective organizations), as well as the general public. The workshop allows participants to directly experience the energy of the Chakras’ mind/body/spirit connections, Meditation, and Polarity Energy’s ability to balance the body’s biomagnetic poles using five elemental energy streams (Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Ether). After four years and additional articles on Feng Shui (the energy of wind and water), I realized that I had written a book.

Following my inner guidance, I downloaded the submission guidelines from the Llewellyn website, and submitted my manuscript. Knowing that all energy is flow, and that you “can’t push the river,” I did not contact the publisher after the manuscript was submitted. I had no expectations whatsoever. The day the publishing agreement from Llewellyn arrived in the mail was unexpected, surprising and exciting!

Energy SourceBook is a sharing of practical, “how to” information to transform your inner world and then see the transformations occur in your outer world. It is a step-by-step guide to the inner work that must be done before outer results are visible. It’s about the daily practice anyone can easily do to transform your energies and your life. Energy SourceBook evolved on its own. It was not planned. It was being published because, for a brief moment, I was in the flow and allowed the Universe to work through me. May the Universe flow through you from reading this book, and may you witness miracles in your life.
