The Energy You Radiate
At every moment of our lives, we are radiating our primary feeling out into the space around us as energy. Like the sun radiating rays of light into the Universe, our thoughts and, more importantly, our feelings are an energy that shine from our bodies and effect everyone and everything that comes into our field of Awareness. This 'energetic field' is often referred to as our aura, and it has been proven scientifically to extend about 2 to 3 feet around the entire body, and can even be different colors, depending on everything from our mood to how well we are taking care of ourselves.
I mention this because it is a well know spiritual truth that what we radiate is what we also attract. For instance, if you tend to be predominately loving, positive and joyful, your energetic field will attract more loving and joyful people and circumstances into your life. On the other hand, if you tend to be negatively charged, experiencing unhappiness, frustration and anger at every turn, then you will most likely attract experiences that give you more of the same. This is actually very good news, because if we wish to live with greater peace and joy for instance, all we have to do is change our inner energy to one of peace and joy, and before we know it, our Life will reflect that energy.
Luckily, there is an old Taoist technique for changing the energy field of the body into one that radiates light and attracts more positive and loving experiences into our lives. I now offer it to you:
Close your eyes and get the sense of breathing the most powerfully healing and loving Qi (energy) through the entire field of your body - through every inch of skin - down into the marrow of your bones and into every cell. Get the sense you are gathering this energy directly from the Divine Source all around you, and If you like to visualize colors, see it as a golden-yellow color, like the sun. As you breathe this energy in deeply, hold your breath for a short time (4 or 5 seconds is enough) and then breathe this energy out through every inch of your skin (especially out of your heart) into the space around you. Let it radiate out at least 3 feet in every direction, like the rays of the sun into your auric field.
Do this breathing for a few minutes twice everyday, either before or after your regular meditation and whenever you feel called to do it. What you just might find is tha,t as you radiate this loving and healing energy into the field around you, a greater joy, love and abundance will start to flow back to you in equal measure. If you doubt this, give it a try for a week and see what happens. Be like the sun and radiate
what you most wish to experience in your life on a regular basis. You might be surprised to find that your life becomes filled with more love, joy and abundance than you know what to do with.
