In the fifth installment of Principles of Spiritual Healing we’ll explore the E in ANTHEM, which stand for Energy Follows Awareness.
This may be the one principle that is most familiar to those of you who have done some energy healing work. It’s mentioned a lot. Yet many don’t understand its full implications or power. Awareness makes everything possible – in fact consciousness is the stuff of which our universe is composed, and awareness combined with energy (otherwise known as emotion) is how your reality is created. (That process of manifestation will be the subject of another post.)
Awareness allows you to bring energy to an area that could use it (like a tired part of your body), and it’s also the means to move energy out of an area where it is stuck or create a more complete and balanced flow in your body. And these are just the physical benefits.
Emotionally, awareness equates to light and love, which are other names for energy. And love is what all the neglected parts of yourself are wanting. I’ve wrtten about this before, so there’s no need here to repeat it all. But please don’t underestimate the power of being present, in love, with the aspect of you that is hurting, fearful or angry. Awareness alone brings hope, comfort and the ability to let go of whatever burden you’re carrying. Nothing more is needed, as long as the awareness is deep, pure and there for as long as is required.
Cellular memories are released under the gaze of non-judgmental awareness. Limiting beliefs are exchanged for higher truths. Traumas soften their sting. And perhaps most importantly we reconnect with our Divinity simply by allowing ourselves to be aware of (remember) who we are, why we came here and how vast is the love available to us.
I highly recommend that you take a few minutes a day (at least) to bring awareness to your self and all its magnificent elements. Notice the sensations in your body, pay attention to your emotions and what they feel like (and where you feel them), observe your thoughts and who’s doing the thinking. And just be with whatever you find. The energy that your own awareness carries is a powerful healing balm. Use it liberally.
