You Have the Power!Your amazing energy quotient.
For years, we’ve been told to “let the sun shine in” and “face it with a grin,” and that “winners never lose, and losers never win”; but many of us are still a little cynical and question the notion that our attitudes really do have the power to dramatically influence the outcome of a situation. Nevertheless, science tells us that we—our thoughts, emotions, and actions—create our reality. We aren’t innocent bystanders in our own lives, no matter how much we may want to believe that we are.
Maybe you’re wondering about the same things that I did when I first realized this! For example:
- How can the thoughts I think, the words I speak, and the actions I take literally transform a potentially negative outcome into a positive one?
- How can I change my destiny?
- How can I alone create riches and great health or find everlasting love?
- How could I possibly have this much power?
Science has proven that you are pure light . . . energy and power. Yes, it’s true! You may not know this, but everything in your body from your blood, skin, and organs are composed of atoms. That’s right! You’re made up of subatomic particles—bundles of vibrating energy—all moving at various speeds. And to top it off: they are 99.99999999 percent empty.
This is so important to understand: Although you appear to be a physical being with bones, organs, hair, and so forth, you are, in fact, millions of different “packets” of vibrating energy. The reason why you “see” your body parts differently (even though they’re all of the same vibrating energy) is because your “energy-processing eyes” translate these frequencies into different molecules, shapes, and organs.
Actually, everything in the universe is composed of this same vibrating energy that’s moving at various frequencies and intensities. The difference in vibrational output is what makes things appear as different forms or physical manifestations. This means that we’re all from the same “field of energy” or “field of consciousness” . . . or what I like to refer to as God.
Since you came from God, you possess the same potential energy, or power, as God does—should you choose to resonate at the highest frequencies. This is why I stress the importance of knowing who you really are!
Knowing this, we also see that our emotions are energy; and our thoughts, possessions, and even the foods we eat are energy. Music is energy, vibrating at a frequency that our “energy-processing ears” translate into specific sounds. Words are energy. In his book The Hidden Messages in Water, for example, Dr. Masaru Emoto explains how he captured images of changes to the molecules in water. Water that was literally spoken to with love and kindness responded by forming incredibly beautiful crystals, whereas water that was subjected to hateful words or had come from war-torn areas had distorted shapes, with no sparkle or shine. We must wonder: Is it really the words that were used or the vibration that each word resonated at that transformed the crystals in the water?
Albert Einstein said: “Energy is never lost—only transferred.” If our choice of words can change the energy in water, imagine how much we affect each other by the things we say!
One of my favorite movies, The Matrix, compares a human being to a battery—one that can power an entire city block. Science tells us that we have over a trillion cells in our bodies, each with the capacity to deliver 1.17 volts of electrical power. That would mean that we have, within our control, at least a trillion volts of power . . . should we want to draw upon it! The more energy we have, the more power we have.
The more power you have, the more light you shine! You can unknowingly emit a huge, beautiful aura that surrounds your physical body. Imagine lighting up an entire city block! You can feel amazing, look extraordinary, and notice that people are naturally drawn to you. I go into great depth explaining how to achieve this magnificence in my book Transcendent Beauty. For now, just know that your level of “power”—your resonance—is your choice, and it’s within your control!
Most people are unaware that the thoughts they think, the words they speak, the food they eat, the music they listen to, the people they surround themselves with, the space they live in, and the amount of exercise they get affect how empowered they feel and how much “power” they possess. In fact, here are some fascinating statistics: there are 81 watts waiting to be harvested from a person sleeping, 128 watts from someone standing at ease, 163 watts from a person walking, 407 watts from a briskly walking person, 1,048 watts from a long-distance runner, and 1,630 watts from a sprinter.
Can you see that someone who is physically fit is simply more powerful than someone who isn’t? Exercise is crucial in eliminating negativity and sustaining success. You simply have more energy and stamina to see things through . . . and the fact that you’ll also have thinner thighs is a bonus!
