Connecting with Source Energy

There are many theories as to how to tap into or connect with source energy.  Reiki, prayer, meditation, and dancing are just a few ways that people have found that work to align you with source.

But really, we are all made of source energy so all we really have to do is use the inherent connection we all have to tap into the universal source energy all around us.  Although, that can be easier said than done. 

The study of source has been known by many names and reached through many styles. Buddha called it enlightenment.  Tibetan Monks have mastered chanting as a form of connection to this energy.  There are some on the Sufi path that whirl during ceremonies to find this connection.  Some in the Indigenous peoples of the Americas reached this ability through a ceremony known as the Sun Dance.  In seeking forms of divination, people who use the Tarot, I Ching, crystals and runes are all tapping into source energy.

These can all take years to master.  So what is the best way for someone to try to tap into source for the first time?  It can be different for everyone but the main way is to find something that causes your heart to feel excited.  For some people that is using their body, by running or doing yoga.  That gets someone into “the zone” where they feel at one with the universe.  For others it can be painting or playing music, that makes them feel alive and in tune with something greater than themselves.

Whatever you feel most alive doing or at the most peaceful, is where you should start to try to tap into source.  So, for example if you love to dance, put on some music and allow your body to feel the rhythm, don’t try to “dance a specific style” just let your body move.  Try to free your mind from any distractions that come up about feeling silly dancing by yourself or how you might look to someone who sees you.  Just free your mind from any thoughts other than how great the music sounds and how wonderful it is to move your body.  Don’t fight your mind, if distracting thoughts come up, just acknowledge them and let them flow on out, don’t continue to focus just think of sweeping them out of the way with a broom and tune back into the music.  Keep dancing and just letting your body move however the music leads and begin to feel how open your heart is, how happy the movements make you feel.  That is tapping into source. 

If you have been looking for answers to a specific question or worrying over a decision, once you feel happy and open through dancing, sit down and take out a piece of paper or your computer, whatever you are most comfortable writing with, and just start thinking about your question or decision.  Write down whatever comes to your mind.  Don’t analyze or over think it, just let the words flow.

The same can be done through whatever it is that makes your heart sing.  If it is painting then start swatching colors in a sketchbook or on a piece of paper.  Don’t worry about an image at first, just watch the colors move across the page.  Feel how the paint flows from the brush to the canvas or paper.  Watch as the colors shift and combine if you move one color into another.  Don’t focus on anything other than watching the change and feeling the flow.  Once your mind feels at peace, begin focusing on the problem at hand.  Try to paint how the problem makes you feel, use colors that make you feel the same way.  Soon the answers you are seeking will become clear. You can tap into source in many different ways.  Each one will work better for different people because all of us are wired differently, but we are all made up of the same source energy as the universe.  Just work on finding the right path to tap into it for yourself.  If the first attempt doesn’t work, move on to something different because it will just take some time for you to find the right connection.  It is like digging through a bag of phone cords you have kept for all your phones through the years, to find the right one you have to keep trying each until you find the one that fits your current phone to charge it.  There a style of tapping into source that will work for you, you just have to find

Source Energy

What does it mean when people say the word source or the phrase source energy? The idea behind source is that there is energy that surrounds us and binds everything together in the entire universe.  From the smallest ingredients in an atom to the largest sun in the galaxy, we are all made up of the same building blocks and energy connecting it all. 

Where did it come from?  Religions have always had individual explanations for it, as did every ancient civilization throughout history.  They each may call it by a different name; from Christianity’s God, to Nu in ancient Egypt, to the Aztec Quetzalcoatil, to science’s Big Bang, there is an underlying theme of the universe springing up from somewhere.   

According to Einstein’s first law of thermodynamics, energy can be neither created nor destroyed.  This means the energy of the universe has always been here and will always be here in some form.  The term source or source energy has gone through lots of other incarnations over time.  But the idea that there is a collective energy that flows throughout the universe is not a new idea.  Source is the idea that no matter what your religion or belief system, there is something that all of us, and everything in the universe, came from or is connected to, the energy flowing between all things. 

Whatever it is, we came from it and when we die, our energy passes back into it, just like our bodies go back into the earth to help rejuvenate the planet from which all physical life here grew from.  Source is really all of us, and everything in the Universe.  The collective knowledge of everything that has ever existed or will ever exist. 

Many people call upon source for help, or look to it for answers.  When you hear someone say “I am calling upon source for answers,” or “What does source want from me?” What they are really saying is they are trying to connect to the source energy all around them to try to open themselves up to the answers they are seeking. 

It is somewhat akin to going to the library or using the internet to do research.  You are looking to something bigger than yourself for the knowledge you don’t have.  People throughout time have looked up to the heavens and believed wishing on a star could bring you something you desire, or that maybe there were answers to be found in the heavens because it looks so big and all encompassing.

What we have to remember is that we are from this energy and we will pass back into this energy.  It isn’t something “outside of ourselves,” we are source too.

Connecting to Source Energy

Connecting to Source Energy

Source energy may be thought of as The Universe, God, Higher Power, Spirit, Divine Energy or more. Regardless of what you call it, that connection is there and it is a source of love and safety. This is where we connect to who we really are at the core. 

When life is busy, we get caught up in our daily routines and stuck into repetitive habits. Some of these habits may help us: exercise, meditation, connecting with those important to us and time in nature. This is an ideal state of balance with mind, body and sprit. Often, though, we may be stuck in the frantic pace of wake up and race through the day until we finally collapse, exhausted. And although we don’t look forward to repeating it all over again the next day, that’s exactly what we do — because we’re stuck and can’t think of any other way. 

This craziness usually continues until we get so out of balance and life yells loudly to get our attention. That is when we abruptly stop and realize we need to make some changes. This may be a health wake up call, career turn arounds or more personal concerns. Let me show you how you can make small steps to improve your life in a big way before this happens!

Steps to Connect

  1. Find or create a place of calm. Turn down life for at least 15 minutes, hopefully more.
  2. Close your eyes and start breathing slowly and deeply.
  3. Remember or imagine a time or place that brings you immense comfort.
  4. Rub your hands together to create a sense of warmth and connection, feeling your energy build. 
  5. Place your hands on your heart and continue breathing at a comfortable pace.
  6. Take this time to connect to your inner you, your source of power.
  7. You will become aware of Aha’s, new ideas, downloads, connections and more. 
  8. We are all unique. Trust that you are here for a reason. Allow this deeper awareness…
  9. You may “see,” “hear,” “smell,” “touch,” or “taste” something that connects the dots for you. 
  10. The more you do this, the easier it gets.

Enjoy this process.
