Primary Blog/Energetic Health/Understanding Our Energy: How Interactions Shape Our Health and Relationships

Have you ever paused to consider how we interact with the world around us, and how these interactions influence our well-being?

Our existence is not merely physical; we are composed of energy that constantly interacts with our surroundings and other people. This energy, manifested in various frequencies or wave functions, plays a crucial role in shaping our experiences and health outcomes.

In the vast expanse of the universe, everything, including ourselves, is comprised of energy. This energy emits distinct frequencies, which we perceive and interpret through our senses. When we encounter these energy frequencies, our brain responds by initiating physiological reactions aimed at ensuring our safety and survival. Indeed, the primary goal of our brain and nervous system is the preservation of ourselves and our species.

​Consider the simple act of hearing. Sound waves propagate through the air, but for us to perceive them as sound, they must be converted into electrical signals within our nervous system. This conversion process involves a series of intricate steps:

  • ​Sound waves enter the ear canal and travel toward the eardrum
  • The eardrum vibrates, causing the tiny bones of the inner ear to amplify these vibrations and transmit them deeper into the ear, toward the cochlea.
  • Within the cochlea, the sound waves create ripples in the fluid along the basilar membrane.
  • Hair cells along the basilar membrane respond to these waves by bending. If these hair cells are depolarized, neurotransmitters are released, generating an electrical signal that activates specific neural patterns in the brain.

Similar processes occur in our other senses: receptors in our eyes convert light waves into electrical signals, while olfactory receptors produce signals that give rise to our sense of smell. Throughout our body, receptors continuously convert energy into electrical signals, providing the brain with vital information about our environment.

These electrical signals then stimulate neural circuits in the brain. Through repeated activation, these circuits become "hardwired," allowing us to perform certain tasks without conscious effort. For instance, think about the automatic process of putting on your shoes; it's a task you've performed so often that the associated neural circuitry has become ingrained in your brain.

However, our thoughts can also influence this neural activity. Consider how just the thought of your favorite food can trigger salivation, activating the same neural circuitry as actually consuming the food. This illustrates the profound connection between our thoughts and physiological responses.

Negative thoughts, in particular, can exert stress on our nervous system, adversely affecting our health. Prolonged stress can lead to a host of health issues, including decreased cognitive function and motivation. By becoming more aware of how we interact with both our internal and external environments, we can begin to understand the root causes of our health challenges.

Fortunately, we have the power to reprogram these habitual neural patterns. By cultivating awareness and consciously directing our thoughts, we can shift our neural activity towards more positive outcomes. This process enables us to make healthier decisions more effortlessly, leading to improved well-being and more fulfilling relationships with others.

​So, how can we increase our vibrational frequency and promote better health and relationships?

  • Practice Mindfulness: Cultivate present-moment awareness to observe and redirect negative thought patterns.
  • Surround yourself with positive influences: Spend time with people who uplift and inspire you, fostering a supportive and nurturing environment.
  • Engage in activities that bring you joy: Pursue hobbies and interests that resonate with your passions, energizing your spirit and raising your vibrational frequency.
  • Practice gratitude: Regularly express appreciation for the blessings in your life, shifting your focus towards positivity and abundance. 
  • Prioritise self-care​: Nourish your body, mind, and spirit through adequate rest, healthy nutrition, exercise, and relaxation techniques.

By implementing these strategies and embracing the interconnected nature of energy, we can embark on a journey towards greater vitality, harmony, and fulfillment in our lives. Understanding our energy is not just a concept; it's a pathway to transformation and holistic well-being.
