A Layman’s understanding On Psychic Energy


It is my contention that everybody can train himself to feel and effectively manage his energy system – things like seeing the aura, doing divination, spiritual and remote healing and psychic protection against hostile energy entities, provided he understands the principles behind the energy system and how to develop and manage it. There is no mystery surrounding this innate gift that we are supposed to be born with but through the passage of time has neglected and lost it. For the Higher Beings have chosen to bury the secret of life within us and afford us the opportunities to re-discover it and put it to our own good use. It is always our sheer arrogance and ignorance that would prevent us from ever exploiting this gift of life.

It is by developing our sensitivity to energy that we acquire the ability to manage it, and the more we work on it the nearer we are on the path to attaining the oneness with Light. For true psychics are not necessarily those who only walk tall in the shadow of their powerful guides but become helpless and defenseless when the guides are no longer there to protect them and do their biddings.

Chakras And Energy Subtle Energy Bodies

We need to know that not only we have a physical body but also we have an energy body, or more appropriately a series of the subtle energy body. Collectively, the energy body is liked our electromagnetic field, which some would equate it as our aura.   If we agree that our physical body produces electricity – the positive pole being our brain and the negative our coccyx (tailbone) and the nervous systems being channels for electric flow, then there should be a corresponding electromagnetic field (or fields). Some psychics even consider our energy bodies as templates of our physical body.

Body Chakra System.

We also have energy centers that operate like dynamos along the central axis (spinal cord) – 7 major chakras (Hindu term for energy wheels) from the base upwards to the crown. Each of these chakras also generates whirlpools of electromagnetic force with a different rate of vibration or frequency. These different vibrations result in layers of energy field around our physical body, interlacing with each other. The lowest vibrations (longer wavelengths and slower oscillation) occur in our lower chakras – the Base, the Sacra and the Solar Plexus, the higher being the Heart, Throat, Eye Brows (3rd Eye) and the Crown.  Most of these charkas and their sub-divisions seem to correspondent with the Chinese acupuncture points and meridian systems. Brief descriptions of the seven chakras are as follows:

The First Chakra is the Root Chakra. (Gonad): Located between the anus and Scrotum for men and between the anus and the vaginal cavity for women. Its basis is Survival, Rooting, Support, and Grounding. It’s supportive of interconnecting with the Earth. Its element is Earth (Chinese acupuncture point – Hui Yin.) This chakra is linked to the first energy subtle body of our human energy field – the etheric level (some called it the physical body)

The Second Chakra is the Sacral or Dan Tian. (Lymphatic): Location is about one inch below the navel and about one inch inward towards the diaphragm. Its basis is in emotions, sexuality, desires, and creativity.  Its primal foundation is energy/power in its raw form. Its element is Water. (Chinese acupuncture point – lower DanTian (Qihai) This chakra is linked to the emotional energy field. (Emotional Body)

The Third Chakra is the Solar Plexus. (Adrenal) Location is the central cavity of lungs, approximately 4 fingers from the naval button. Its basis is personal power and metabolic energy. Its primal essence is that of the Will. Its foundation is based on one’s individual essence/beingness. Its element is Fire. This chakra is connected to the mental energy field. (Mental Body)

The Fourth Chakra is the Heart (Thymus): Location is about 2-3 inches above the solar plexus, approximately the sternum. It roots out to heart organ as well and it’s area thus is the general area between the upper lung cavity to the heart cavity. Its basis is Love, Associations, Relations, and Compassion. Its primal essence is interrelations and all that is in the arena of love. Its element is Air. (Chinese Acupuncture – middle DanTian or ShungZhong) This chakra, the threshold to the spiritual realm is aligned to the astral energy field. (Intuitional/compassionate body)

The Fifth Chakra is the Throat (Thyroid): Location is about midway point between the skull and the lower neck cavity. It is about one inch inward from the throat. For the man,  it is approximately the location of Adam’s apple.   It is in a linear vertical alignment with the spinal cord. Its basis is Communication and Creativity. Its essence is vibration, focusing and directing. Its element is Sound. This is linked to our etheric template energy field. (will/spirit body or atmic body. )

The Sixth Chakra is the Third Eye (Pituitary): Location is the central cavity of the brain. Its basis is Intuition faculty and all that is governed by the imagination. It is the link from which we perceive the higher zones and higher planes. Its essence is within the astral and dreaming worlds. Its element is Light (Chinese acupuncture point –Ying Dong.) This is linked to the celestial energy field (soul level, or monadic body)

The Seventh Chakra is the Crown (Pineal): Location is at the pivot axis point of the skull at the very top. It is where three plating of the skull intersect, of the frontal lobe, the left, and right hemispheres. Its basis is that of Knowledge, Information, and Understanding. It is refined thoughts. Its essence is that of blissfulness. Its element is Thought (Chinese acupuncture – Upper DanTian or Bai Hui. This is linked to the Ketheric Template energy field. (divine body)

Therefore, when sicknesses take place, they affect the energy field first – causing imbalances or blockages and they, in turn, affect the normal functioning of the chakras which are in turn closely linked to our endocrine systems and indirectly to the surrounding vital organs and viscera.

Chinese Concept Of Qi

As mentioned earlier, the Chinese system of Chi also fits into this model of human energy field – the meridians being channels for movements of Chi and the viscera and organs being connected to/connected by these meridians. A smooth and unobstructed flow of Chi or energy, therefore, connotes that our viscera and vital organs are functioning properly, and the reverse means otherwise.

To have a healthy physical body, therefore, one needs to have a healthy energy body. To heal a physical body, one also needs to heal the energy body first – removing the blockages and imbalances or negative energies to prevent the physical body from degenerating and allow it to recover. This is a complementary to Western medicine.


To be able to access our body’s energy system, one needs to extend our normal sensory abilities – especially our ability to feel the subtle sensations. Both Chi-kung and meditation (they are in fact inter-related) can teach you to still your body and mind until you raise your sensitivity in feeling beyond your normal sensory abilities. At one point, you should be able to feel the presence of energy – just like you can feel heat and cold. You can feel the flow of energy inside and outside your body. You begin to experience the feelings of energy blockages or energy deficiencies in your body. You begin to feel what is good energy and bad energy – take for example the different feeling of being in a Church and being in a Casket company.

After you have learned to feel the energy, you begin to learn how to manage it; how to remove bad energy and how to supplement or replace it with good energy. You will also discover that our thoughts can order the movements of energy. Have you ever wondered that whenever you feel pain, that areas, where pain takes place, are actually sending signals to our brain, our central nervous system – that they need healing and request reinforcement of healing energy to their rescue. Additionally, of course, the brain would send white blood cells to counter the invasions of bacteria or virus, or red blood cells to do the repair work.

Meditation, therefore, not only calms your mind, allows your body to relax and rest but also helps you to acquire the ability to feel beyond and gain mastery over your energy flow. The key to successful meditation relies on focusing; the ability to keep at bay the multiple thoughts to achieve concentration/mindfulness. The Chinese put it this way: “Replace thousands of thoughts with a single thought”. Besides the ability to feel the subtle energy world, advanced meditation also trains you to be able to decode the energy dimensions – you begin to interpret in your inner mind whatever forms or meanings the different energy that is around you. Like, for instance, ghost and spirits, they are lingering energy bodies without the physical body. They may refuse to believe they are dead and without a physical body. But soon, like their physical body, their energy bodies would dematerialize and fade away into other dimensions. When our senses are heightened due to advanced meditative training, we would be able to feel and see ghosts and spirits.

Feeling of Energy Vibration

I used to conduct lessons to teach my students how to feel the vibrations of energy. One method I often use is to show them how to feel the vibrations of different type of quartz. If they cannot feel the stones, I would try and open up their hand charkas by focusing my energy on to their palms. The left hand seems to be able to sense energy better, probably because the right hemisphere of the brain governs the left side of the body. It is probably explained by the fact that our right hemisphere of the brain governs our abilities to learn about humanities as opposed to the left brain which control our the abilities to know about subjects on science and mathematics… As the students advanced in their lessons, I made them programmed their emotions into the quartz and tried to pick up the different vibrations representing the feelings of joy or grief. To improve their ability to sense energy, I also taught them how to center themselves by regulating their breath and by doing some meditative exercises.

As mentioned, at a higher level, one would be able to feel the energy of emotions in the air – one would be able to discern moods of happiness, hostility or sadness the moment one enters a room. One would be able to feel even the aftermath/residue of a violent encounter even after the players have vacated the room. Emotions, as well as mental thought-forms, are also energies and have definitive and characteristic vibration rate. Some emotions are damaging – for example, anger, sorrows or worries – and their densities in our energy fields cause blockages to the inflow of good energies. Prolonged exposure to these emotional vibrations, therefore, leads to sicknesses like cancer, hyper-tensions or asthmas.

All these unorthodox extrapolations should make one realize that to heal oneself, one must have an all-round approach – the holistic way of restoration. Western medicine is a necessity but by itself, it is inadequate to ensure a complete recovery of the patients. One must not only heal the body but also the mind and the spirit. One must not only subdue the symptoms but also trace and eliminate the root causes of sicknesses.

When a person gains mastery over the control of energy, he also begins to develop the ability not only to feel his own energy but also learn to sense other people’s energies. Whether it is deliberately or otherwise, he picks up others bodily vibrations – including their physical pains, and their emotional states. This will be the stage where he begins to be affected when he stands next to persons suffering from sicknesses – for example, chest pains and headaches. At the point where two persons’ force fields intercede, there is some form of sympathetic resonance taking place. Healers, who do energy healing, will always have this problem of being influenced by the energies of their patients, and if they do not do proper grounding and cleansing during and after the healing sessions, they would pick up the same sicknesses after prolonged exposure to their patients.

Channeling of Energy

Besides the ability to sense energy, the person also acquires the ability to channel energy. He is able to move energy through his body and radiate them out of his hands to do the healing. Or, he can allow his body to become a psychic conduit for higher spiritual energy, which he can project out to heal himself and others. Through his improved power of visualization, he can conjure up thought forms to do his bidding. Example: he can create etheric hands or other energy objects such as etheric plasma balls or pyramids and will them to perform specific tasks.

At another higher level, the person might be so attuned to energy sensing that he develops the gift of connectivity – the ability to do remote sensing and healing. Not only distance is no longer an obstacle, but also he can even attempt to reverse back in time to heal the root causes of sicknesses. Example: if the root cause of the sickness is implanted during a person’s childhood day, he can mentally visualize those early years and perform healing on the image of the person in those eras.

Energy Vibration And Divination

Going a bit further, you can even do “divination” or commonly known as fortune telling – an ability to forecast events by tapping into the vibrations of the energy (astral) dimensions. The use of the pendulum is but one example. Depending on which direction the pendulum swings you can actually get a “Yes” or “No” response to your question about something unknown in the past or about the future. One can also ask the questions in the inner mind and get a “Positive” or “Negative” response by looking out for subtle physiological changes in your body. I take note of the vibrations in the crown chakra (pineal gland) to connote a “yes” and in the inner third eye chakra (pituitary gland) as “No” to get the answers to my questions. The Chinese call the crown chakra (PaHui ) the Yang Dragon (Yang) and the 3rd Eye chakra (Ying Tong) the Yin Tiger. The realm of our subconscious mind is also the dimension in which we encounter during dreams. Some psychics get their forecasts or divination in their dreams, or what we call the astral world. Some people call the ability to predict or forecast events as intuition or some dismiss it as mere coincidences. But if the mere coincidence repeats them too often, one should seriously take a second look at this phenomenal ability.

On Mediums

Another subject that intrigues most people is mediumship. In my view, a medium is one who allows him to be taken over and possessed by another entity. They can come in the forms of angel, deities, and spiritual guides or even lower elemental spirits or discarnate beings. With the consent of the medium, an energy entity would enter the person’s energy body, normally through the back throat chakra, and temporarily take shelter in it. He gains control over the person’s physical body and his consciousness for a period of time. During this time, the medium can display unusual psychic abilities – foretelling past and future events, kinetically moving objects or performing exorcisms and etc. The Chinese pugilistic art has a school of spiritual boxing where the fighter invokes the deity and summons it into his body to help him become invincible in fighting and protecting him from being harmed by his enemies.  Most people craving for good luck would visit these media to receive blessings.

I also observe that those mediums would normally collapse and become very weak after they have performed those rituals and after their out-of-this-world guests have left them. I think nothing is for free and mediums do pay a high price, in terms of their health being affected or the consequences could even be karmic in subsequent incarnations. I have been approached by very powerful mediums who volunteered to train me in mediumship, but I politely declined all these offers. Nevertheless, I believe there is a difference between a psychic who connects to his guides and a medium who invokes spirits, deities and other energy entities to enter his body to perform divination and do his other biddings. I also feel that there are good and bad mediums; it all depends on whether the rituals they perform are for their personal/mercenary ulterior motive, or they are providing a genuine service to help those in need.

Energy And Geomancy (Fengshui)

Common exterior Feng Shui Sha Qi to avoid — Picture Healer - Feng Shui, Craft & Art, Chinese Medicine

Feng Shui, Geomancy is also about energy – Energy caused by the landscape, magnetic forces and flows, seasonal fluctuations, celestial and planetary influences, and positioning of static objects in the environment. Another factor to consider is how your own body energy copes and resonates with all these causes of energy. The western application of Feng Shui is to bring an array of scientific equipment into a location and test out the various forms of energy in the area. If you are sensitive to energy, you can actually feel the influence of “Feng Shui” – the good and bad “Qi” – rather than relying entirely on the Feng Shui principles practiced by the masters.


Most of us have strong cravings for good fortune or windfall in lotteries or gaming activities.  Therefore, it is beneficial to have a fundamental understanding of how maintaining a clean and positive energy would bring about material success, and also good health and harmonious relationship.  Some who are convinced that energy does play a part in attracting luck would go for blessings from spiritual masters.  My energy consultation service is geared towards cleansing away negative energy blockage, supplants my clients with positive energy and balancing the 7 major chakras.  I also organize coaching programmes to teach – how to meditate and gain understanding and even managing their body energy system.
