Meditation: Energy in our Society


I frequently have incredibly exciting life-events that take place in relation to my spirituality. There are very few people I feel comfortable sharing my accounts with. A few months ago, I had yet another very invigorating experience. I meditate (almost) every day. During this particular meditation I gave myself a front row seat to energy in our society and I feel compelled to share it with you.

The beginning of my meditations always begin the same. “I open myself to all the good and positive energies of the universe. I need your help. There is no such thing as separateness. I can spread more love with the talents and abilities of ALL than of a solitary entity. We are One. And as One, I ask you to use me and work through me to spread all the love, peace, joy, happiness, truth, courage, strength, and LOVE LOVE LOVE imaginable. I am open. Please use me for positivity and love. I cannot do this alone – because there is no such thing as singularity. We are one, just as we always have been.”

All of my meditations begin with the above request – “all energies centered in love and positivity use me, I am open.” My next step is very visual. I envision myself floating above our earth in outer-space. Goldish-Yellowish- very BRIGHT shimmers of light/energy spread from my floating body and encompass the entire world. I bathe absolutely everything with this energy. I go into every single person and “hug” their heart with love. I see my bright aura pulse and dance inside them as it radiates outward and continues to spread throughout not only Earth, but the entire universe. This is how my meditations begin. Every session takes its own path. And on this particular day, I was in for an extra special treat.

In normal (non meditation state) day to day living, I see and feel energies…I can see and feel the vibrations put off by all organisms. When walking by trees or plants I see their specific signatures as they all intertwine with everything around them. My energy dances and plays with the root systems, the birds, the leaves, the wind and water. All signatures overlap and weave in out and of each other. I feel their “feelings” and I am able to see how far their energetic fields reach. This is the life I see on a daily basis. This is a glimpse into my world.

But, while doing this particular meditation of sending and sharing pure true love with the entire world and universe, I was suddenly honed in to the flow and communication of energy. “I” was no longer above the earth in our universe. Nor was I reduced to pure light, which happens the deeper I take my meditation. This time I was Source. I was flawlessly all energy. Picture a nature movie on fast forward. You see vast savannahs, oceans, prairies, forests, and all living creatures moving past you at staggering speeds. Imagine root system everywhere and how they connect to one another. Imagine neuropathways transmitting signals through the brain. Imagine all the roots connecting and radiating their vitality. I got a front row seat watching how energy flows freely from all life. I was the energy. I was the roots and the trees, the wind and rain, the ocean and forests, and everywhere I went these roots or pathways connected one thing to another. Everything was interconnected and there was no separation. Now this in and of itself wasn’t  a rare session for me. I’ve had this type of experience quite a few times. But what happened next was different.

As I was flowing freely across the vast open natural world, the speed at which I was traveling slowed down at the outskirts of city life. The closer I got to the city itself the more my reach was concentrated. My energy didn’t flow freely through the land. It came to a halt. The root systems which I use to flow through were paved over with cement. Sidewalks and streets had taken over my ability to communicate freely with life. There was a barrier between us. People had unknowingly placed themselves in concrete prisons which made them unable to feel the unity and harmony that life genuinely has. They no longer had access to dirt, bugs, birds, clean water, wildflowers, wind… the wild beauty of life had been removed.There were trees placed in holes in the sidewalks but our energetic reach was suspended as they became detached from the natural world surrounding them. The people couldn’t feel me because they had quite literally lost touch with nature… they had lost touch with me. When people live in cities they are unable to feel the free nature of energy as it is intended.

When my meditation ended I was very excited. When I have these types of experiences I feel as if the ball of energy inside my chest will explode. I feel like I could bounce off walls. I feel like I can bounce through walls. I’ve known firsthand for many years that when people live in cities they cut themselves off from source, from nature, from me. It’s no mystery why people feel secluded and alone. When we live so much of our lives fractured from the purity and freedom of nature we begin to show signs. These feelings of separateness and isolation from the world will only continue to grow if people don’t embrace and reconnect with the natural and wild spaces we belong to. These spaces exist not only outside of us, but most importantly inside. We all belong. We are all one. This world we live in belongs to all living creatures. And despite human destruction of wilderness, we live together in harmony. There is an ebb and flow that constantly radiates like the ocean waves over all living things. There is an energy which lies in each of us, an energy that creates freely and flawlessly, and we are that energy.

We are all one. We are all connected. Get out and play in YOUR natural world.
