Have you ever noticed that when we meet people who “light up the room” we often say that they’re beautiful? Regardless of their physical features or the outfits they’re wearing, we just know that certain individuals have something special, a sparkle deep within. We’re naturally drawn to them. They shine, and their energy is intoxicating.

So, what exactly do they possess? And how can we acquire it, too?
The Essence of All Life
Did you know that although to the naked eye we may appear to be physical bodies composed of solid matter, we are in fact organisms of pure energy?
Quantum physics tells us that we’re actually composed of subatomic particles that are 99.99999 percent empty—with just a mere .000001 percent matter! We are actually billions of tiny bundles of energy all vibrating at various speeds. Imagine—in essence, we’re almost not here! In fact, Albert Einstein concluded that matter and energy are perfectly interchangeable, so you can think of matter as the heaviest form of energy, and energy as the lightest form of matter.
This doesn’t just apply to us human beings either, but to all matter, from books you read to the chair you’re sitting on, birds, trees, flowers, the moon, sun, and stars. Energy is the essence of all life!
Don’t confuse energy with the liveliness of a 20-year-old fitness instructor—rather, everything is energy. Nature gives off an abundance of energy; in fact, the food we eat when digested becomes energy called a “calorie.” Lights, music, computers, television, and radio all give off energy, resonating at different speeds. (Just think of how great music can lift your spirits or how a disturbing movie can dampen your mood.)

Think of yourself as an “energy-processing system.” While this might sound technical, each of us is in fact processing everything—from the air we breath to the food we eat, the thoughts we think, the sounds we hear, the words we speak, the images we see, and the emotions we feel—which all create energy within our body.
According to Dr. David Hawkins, the brilliant author of Power vs. Force, by using the science of kinesiology, scientists are able to determine the speed that each level of consciousness vibrates at. That is, when we have thoughts that are happy and positive, our energetic frequency vibrates very quickly (we are light, bright and powerful), while when we have negative thoughts, our energy essentially downshifts. Emotions of love and joy are vibrant, while shame and guilt are dark and heavy. When we speak words that are kind and thoughtful, we raise our resonance by leaps and bounds, while hurtful and cruel ones lower our energy to a dark place. We can literally become exhausted by our own thoughts and words.
Energetic frequency is never static—we’re always in a state of flux, depending upon our mood, our surroundings, the foods we eat, how we move our bodies, and probably the most important factor, the thoughts we think. It’s important to know that energy can never be lost, only transferred.
