To understand energy, we must observe energy. And the more precisely we can observe it, the better we can understand and use it.

There’s more to sensing energy than closing your eyes and quieting your thoughts. Today I want to share five techniques I’ve developed for observing energy. Each one builds on the previous ones, so this can serve as a rough roadmap to developing the skills.

Level 1: Quieting your energy

Everything starts with quieting your energy, so you can listen to the other person’s energy. We’ve covered that many times, so read those posts if this is new to you.

Just quiet your energy and extend your awareness to the edge of your energy body.

Level 2: Sensory connection

Quiet your energy, then extend a connection out from your fingertips into the client’s body. Keep the connection quiet, so it listens to their energy. We’ve covered this many times too.

A connection is smaller and more precise than just extending your awareness. This will help you read the energy of individual tissues, so you can more precisely target your healing energy.

Think of it as an energy probe, to read the energy at various points inside the client’s body. 

Level 3: Sensory network

Instead of making one sensory connection and moving it around, make many sensory connections throughout the client’s joint or whatever area you’re working with.

Move your awareness around the joint, feeling the energy of each tissue, noticing the areas with an energy of inflammation or other damage.

This gets a much fuller picture than using a single sensory connection.

I consider a network of sensory connections to be the last beginner technique, and mark the point where a student is ready for intermediate skills.

Update: Here’s the post on this technique.

Level 4: Broad range of signatures

Different tissues have different energy signatures. Cartilage has one signature, tendon has another, nerves have still another. Then the state of the tissue also matters, inflamed cartilage has a different signature than healthy cartilage, and so on.

Energy connections also have a signature. Until now, we’ve ignored that. By default, your connections will have your energy signature, which works well enough for most energy signatures that human tissue will have. But once we learn to work with the energy signature of our sensory connections, we can observe the client’s energy much more precisely.

A connection reads energy in its signature. So if a connection has the signature of inflamed tendon, it’s going to be most effective at noticing inflamed tendons.

At this level, we’re going to make sensory connections with a broader range of energy signatures, so they can read a greater variety of energies in the body.

At this level, don’t worry about what signatures you’re adding. Just add a bunch of them, and get used to thinking about the signature of a connection and broadening the range of signatures you work with.

This is a topic I haven’t written about before. I mostly write beginner topics for students and advanced topics that I’m working on. But I think I’ll turn this post into a series, and write about levels four and five in the coming weeks.

Level 5: Signature decomposition

Once you’re used to creating a network of sensory connections in a variety of signatures, the next step is to think carefully about what signatures you want.

In practice, we don’t want one connection with the signature of inflamed tendon, another with the signature of healthy tendon, and so on. For one, there isn’t a single signature of inflamed tendon, there are many tiny differences between different tendons in different people. And second, I wasn’t born knowing the energy signature of inflamed tendon, I had to figure it out. And the way I figured it out is with signature decomposition.

Signature decomposition is about taking a whole energy signature and breaking it down into smaller and smaller pieces.

Think of it like breaking sentences down into words, and words down into letters. The smaller units of signature don’t necessarily mean much on their own, but they combine to make a full signature with a great deal of meaning.

Instead of looking for a full signature, we make sensory connections that match each letter. Then we read which letters are present in a signature, and figure out what that signature is. This lets us learn what inflamed tendon looks like, how it differs from healthy tendon or inflamed cartilage, and how this person’s inflamed tendon differs from someone else’s inflamed tendon. It shows you the difference between recently inflamed tendon and chronically inflamed tendon, which it turns out is important for getting the best healing energy.

Signature decomposition is how we align to a signature. It lets us create a network of sensory connections that gives a more accurate picture of the signatures we’re dealing with. It is what marks the progression from intermediate to advanced energy techniques.

Once you’ve learned signature decomposition, the next step is to work with smaller and smaller signatures, decomposing the signature further and further.

I’ll discuss signature decomposition in an upcoming post, too.

Join me live every Sunday

Every Sunday at 11am Pacific, I geek out about energy on my live stream, Ask an Energy Scientist.

This weekend, I’ll talk about the five levels of sensing energy. Bring your questions, or just drop in and listen.

Just join my Facebook group, Energy Healing Lab, and you’ll get a notification when it starts.

Looking forward to talking with you!
