Energy 101:
Good Energy Can Be The Missing Component to Success!

by Mary Lee McRoberts

What Energy Is

The universe is meant to work in harmony, with cooperation and coordination. Everything has an energy field that emanates from it, whether it is living or not. We are trained to use our minds (through studies) and our physical bodies (via athletics/exercise), but we are not taught about the third component of “energy.” It’s unseen and not part of our scientific culture. We don’t see gravity, but it exists. We don’t see radio waves or electricity, but we know they exist because we hear music and lights turn on; we believe because we see an end result.

How We Experience Energy

Energy fields exist, that are unseen by most, around people’s bodies. Ever walked into a room of people, smiling and acting happy, but you know (and feel in your gut,) they just had a disagreement? That’s your energy field detecting energy emanating from them. You receive information in your mind, although there is nothing you saw or heard to support the instant knowing. Energy is a real and palpable thing and it swirls around us all the time. It stays where we are – even after we leave the space – and the more emotion attached, the longer it remains.

How Energy Can Impact a Business

Imagine energy/emotion in a business where everyone is under pressure to perform, or the last president was really unhappy before leaving. Businesses are like people; they have a heart and soul. Problems in any area – management, employees, buildings, projects – can be larger than the mechanics of what it might appear to be. When the right decisions are made from a logical business perspective, and yet the business continues to suffer challenges, it means there are other things in play that are not normally “seen” from a traditional business viewpoint.

How Energy Can Impact a Home

Every structure holds energy of its inhabitants until that energy is removed. Imagine making Easter eggs, dropping the dye tablet into vinegar and observing the color spread out – that’s what energy looks like emanating from our bodies. If you purchase a home from a couple who repeatedly fought in the kitchen, that energy/emotion still sits in the kitchen where it took place. It doesn’t go with the people when they leave! After moving in, you may find yourself feeling angry and arguing in the kitchen, when you’ve never done that. You’re literally living in the energy of anger left there.

Another example is a married couple having conflict but eventually sorting it out. Because they still live in the energy of prior conflict, it’s more difficult to experience harmony. (This is why real estate agents tell you to remove personal items when selling your home; this removes some of your “energy” so the buyer doesn’t feel like they are in someone else’s home.)

Mary Lee McRoberts - Energy Work

By Mary Lee McRoberts

 Are you stuck in your life, looking to create positive change? Are you experiencing the end of a relationship or the loss of a loved one? Is your business struggling? 

The easiest way to create positive change in your life is to change your surroundings! 

1. Remove Objects That Do Not Support You

We live in a world of energy that permeates everything and holds 

emotion. When we surround ourselves with particular objects, we are sitting in the emotional energy those objects hold and it affects how we think and feel. At a client’s home I observed a painting on the inside of the bathroom door and knew the painting held the emotion of anger and control from a powerful female relative. My client said her mother is an artist and had painted it, and they hadn’t spoken in years! 

The look on her face was amazement as she became aware of the negative effect of the painting, even though it was a lovely piece of art. 

2. Clear Your Home

Turn off your brain – turn on your senses. Take one room at a time, sit alone quietly in it, with your eyes closed, and see if you can feel the room. Do you feel happy, sad, uncomfortable, angry – is there a feeling to the room?  Open your eyes and look at each object, including furniture, one by one.  Where did it come from, do you like it, does it make you feel good, did it come from someone you don’t like but you feel obligated to  display it, what are the memories attached to it? If you love it and feel 

really good about it, keep it. If it’s anything else, dispose of it.

3. Clear Your Office

To create change at work, the same method applies. Eliminate the clutter, things that don’t mean anything today. Don’t keep too much from the past – it holds your energy back and you want it to be looking at the future and what you want to create. Look at each item in your office and if you feel ?at, sad, under pressure, angry, get rid of it. Surround yourself with colors you love, things that inspire you, and keep it simple.

4. The Clutter Issue

Many people are challenged with clutter. The more clutter you have around, the more energy is sapped from you.  It can make you feel safe to live in clutter, but it will keep you stuck in place. It can affect every part of your life because it is an emotional issue. 

Objects can hold the energy of the present owner, the past owners and the creator. Think of a hand-carved violin or a quilt lovingly sewn by a grandmother and how good that feels.  Now imagine the energy in a home filled to the brim with second-hand store and garage sale items.  

What you surround yourself with is key to your ability to create change in your life!  You have the power!
