Energy Work The Basics it all starts from the basic assumption that everything is made of energy our bodies, the world around us. We have all grown up with the concepts of energy “discovered” by modern science. of electricity, magnetic energy, gravity, weight, atomic radiation... But the concept of energy on a subtler level is still seen as a mystical, imaginary spiritual thing played with by deluded mystics who like to believe in fairy tales. We do have a spiritual subculture seperate from science that has made many attempts to define other energies. Starting in India Sanscrit, and Bhuddist teachings, we have the concept of Auras and energy bodies, chakras and more. Which is wonderful, as it has made the concept more mainstream and acceptable to people, but one of the misconceptions that exists is that this “Aura” is somehow something seperate and “spiritual” from our more earthy bodies. Whereas in actual fact, our bodies themselves are energy.
