In The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield writes about the control dramas that people use to draw energy from one another.
Think about it. Every time you interact with another person, there is a transaction of energy. Depending on the kind of interaction, you either feel energised or drained after it.
The reason why negative people tend to drain your energy is because they are operating from their ego.
The ego is all about, I, me and myself. It always wants more. More possessions, more wealth, more pride, more control, more energy
When you operate from the ego, you tend to draw energy towards yourself, and away from the other person.
Every time you try to be right, every time you try to prove yourself superior to another person or dominate them, you are fighting a battle for energy. This battle is the death-knell of many a relationship.
But when you experience a sense of oneness with the universe, lose your sense of self and ego and learn to operate from love, theres no more need for control dramas.
The Fourth and Fifth Insight in The Celestine Prophecy state that:
Humans have always felt insecure and disconnected from this sacred source, and have tried to take energy by dominating each other. This struggle is responsible for all human conflict.
The only solution is to cultivate a personal reconnection with the divine, a mystical transformation that fills us with unlimited energy and love, extends our perception of beauty, and lifts us into a Higher-Self Awareness.
These insights are not new. For thousands of years, spiritual and energy healers from the disciplines of Reiki, Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga, have understood and used them to draw energy directly from the divine source.
Meditation is the way recommended by spiritual and energy healers, but a positive attitude and healthy diet are also important.
When you realise that the energy in the universe is infinite and boundless, and learn how to tap into that divine energy and abundance, theres no need for you to draw your energy from another person.
This realisation will completely transform your relationships.
When you learn how to build your resources of energy directly from the universe, you can even give some to another person who needs it.
You know theres always more where that came from.
