To read energy, engage all of your senses, including kinesthetic feeling. Let it speak to you, without holding any assumptions.
Here are Seven Keys to Reading Energy. When we have techniques for reading what seems intangible, the invisible becomes visible.
1. Observe Light and Shadow
Pay attention to contrasts in light. Where the light is especially dim, the energy is also. Lack of light can suggest a depressed state. When the light is extremely bright, there may be too much activity.
We want a balance of light and dark. Darkness in balance serves as shade and protection. Light in balance cultivates energy and growth.
2. Check Energy Density
Negative energy is thick in nature: Stuffy, stagnant, and immobile. You may feel suddenly claustrophobic around this person or place, and have difficulty breathing. The air is stagnant. When the air is stagnant, communication is blocked.
Thick, dense energy is all-consuming, feeding on its environment. Parasitic.
Light energy is angelic — fearless, fluid, flexible, and dynamic — like palm trees swaying in the breeze. Spacious.
