Energy. What is it exactly? Pneuma in Greek, Spiritus in Latin, Qi in Chinese, Ki in Japanese, Prana in Sanskrit, Neshamah in Hebrew. This force that gives animation to living things we refer to as energy is one of our most precious commodities. We see the suns energy as light, we can feel it's warmth. We hear the energy of an impending storm, we feel the forces of nature as wind, lighting and rain. We witness the birth and decay of plants as energy transfers through tiny seeds, into lush botanicals, and back into soil. Energy can be transferred through language as a verbal hello or a simple smile.
Energy truly is power in this world. Our bodies need nutrition and sustenance to transfer into energy for basic life function. Meditation and exercise are two more ways we utilize energy for our well-being and survival. We know when we are low on this mysterious force and when it's immense revitalization meets us.
Being able to harness your personal energy is truly an unmatchable skill. Learning to restore your stamina and recharge you spirit while feeling unmotivated or drained will set you up to take control of your days productivity, reach your goals, and live the life of your dreams.
