Energy mindfulness is the practice of placing one’s attention on sensations or perceptions regarding a force or power interacting with one’s being. This can include overtly physical interaction to those that are more subtle or ephemeral – like thoughts. Thinking and perceiving in terms of energy is fundamental to energywork. What is energy?
There is no accepted definition for energy, other than those that refer to force, electromagnetism, or it’s relationship to matter (E=mc^2). Since the dawn of quantum mechanics, interpretations of reality in terms of the information that makes it up appear more and more definitive.
This is in lieu of Newtonian mechanics, which sees nature as physical, material, and fundamentally composed of matter – usually involving the interaction of particles, corpuscular bodies, and the like. The discovery that matter can be understood as both a particle and a wave (simultaneously) is the great insight of quantum physics. Both perspectives are simultaneously true – E equals mc^2. Newtonian mechanics is yin within yang. Quantum mechanics is yang within yin.*
Matter and energy are the same in the same way that 0 and 1 are both binary code.
What is a thought, in it’s simplest terms, other than an organization of information? The minds influence on matter is increasingly well-supported in scientific literature, e.g. the minds ability to move random number generators further away from random (i.e. more 0’s or more 1’s by willing it) , or the mind’s ability to intersect the path of light in the famous double-slit experiment by remote viewing into the box where light is being beamed .
These effects persist independently of distance and even when the subjects are electromagnetically shielded. There are no “psi waves” propagating through space. More on this in a bit.
At the quantized level of space, the “atom” is literally a whisp of pixie dust floating on an endlessly deep ocean of pure energy (Planck density: 10^93 gm/cm^3). “There is enough energy in a cubic centimeter of space to boil all the oceans of the world”, said Feynman. Turns out, this was a gross understatement. How, then, is matter stable under such unimaginable pressure?
The ground substance of reality is the information state of quantized, Planck-dense bits of data. The code that governs this data is perfect. Nothing ever gets off it’s tracks. All protons and electrons in the universe access this database to “know where to be at all times”. At this level, there is nothing but pure yin and pure yang interpenetrating one another; this is an image of the Taiji.
What we are discovering in the laboratory of Radin, Dunne, and others is that consciousness has direct access to this database, and even to the code itself. Sound like the Matrix? The level of information complexity in consciousness (note, I didn’t say in the brain) is second only to the Planck scale of space. The Planck scale is about 30 orders of magnitude more dense with information, but the degree of connectedness (novelty) in that information is matched only by what we know of as consciousness. I contend that it’s not due to wave-like effects but because of scale-harmonic novelty that mind shares its influence on the material world independent of mechanical effects.
The effect that intentionality has on reality is the basis of prayer, magic, energywork, and essentially all of the meaningful action in human life. Energy mindfulness brings the information complexity of the Planck scale into harmony with the information complexity of the mind-body space by some kind of feedback (or feedforward) mechanism. This cross-talk between mind, body, and what is effectively qi is the mechanism by which energywork and psychic phenomena occur.
By integrating mind, body, and spirit through energywork and Qigong, we entangle our being with the ground substance of the universe. In doing so we become more like the Dao.
