The energy effect

Quantum physics shows us that, at a fundamental level, we are small pieces of matter separated by lots of space.  In fact, we are really just a bag of space interacting with other bags of space in a bigger bag of space that is our physical world.

This space is called energy: we are energetic beings living in an energetic world.

On one level, we think of energy as vitality: the ‘va va voom’ that drives us.  But energy is much more than that. We use energy to communicate with everyone and everything in
our lives.  So doesn’t it make sense to consider where we get our energy from in order to understand what is happening in our lives and why?

Physically we take energy from the food we eat and the water we drink. If the plants are healthy, the meat has come from healthy animals and the water quality is good then the quality of the energy we ingest is increased.

Our physical environment provides energy in the form of air and light and the quality of both can make a big difference to our lives.

These sources of energy are all pretty standard and accepted but there are so many more sources that provide both our inherent energy and additional energy that we can tap into when we need it.

Our inherent energy is determined by the time we enter this energetic world.  It’s as if we are time-stamped by the energetic pattern when we take our first breath.  Our date of birth can be analysed by a number of different astrological systems to show character traits, strengths and weaknesses.  Numerology can also deepen this analysis by reviewing the numerical energy of the whole birth date and specific parts of it.

And, as time moves, on the same systems can identify how your inherent energy will interact with the energetic world and other energetic beings at any time in the past, present or future by showing you the cycles of your particular life.

When we come into this world we are given a label that we come to identify as our own and that others perceive us as being.  Our name can give a lot of information regarding our life purpose, our abilities and challenges we may face in this lifetime.  Whether you believe that our name is chosen before we incarnate into this life to help us achieve our purpose or that we grow into the energy of our name as we start to use it, our name can be accurately assessed using numerology to provide insights into our psychological
make-up.

Another part of our inherent energy comes from our divine essence or our soul.  Few of us can consciously understand our soul’s full purpose but we are given the correct level of spirit to help us fulfil that purpose.

To a large extent we have very little conscious control over our inherent energy.  However, exterior sources of energy are very much in our control.  Eating good food and getting fresh air is a choice most of us can make but these are not the only sources of energy we have control over.

Our emotions can either boost or deplete our energy.  Our mental processes can have the same effect.  Doesn’t it make sense then to focus our thoughts and feelings on the good stuff in our lives?

Our five senses are also a great source of energy and a primary way in which we interact with our world.  Touching something sensual like satin or velvet, stroking a purring cat or holding the hand of someone we love immediately increases our energy.  Listening to uplifting music or looking at a beautiful vista will have the same effect as will the taste of our favourite fruit or the bouquet of our favourite flower.  We all have choices about how we use our senses so why not use them in fun and delight and boost the energy we receive?

Another energy source is people.  Anybody we interact with will exchange energy with us.  You’re probably aware of people who leave you feeling drained and others who just seem to give you a lift.  The latter inspire us: literally fill us with spirit or energy.  Seek these people out to improve your energy levels and become somebody who inspires others too.  By giving you’ll receive lots of energy back.

Take account of where you spend your time: your home, workplace, bed or office.  All of these places have their own energetic blueprint that will interact with yours.  The study of feng shui can help you connect and harmonise with the energy of the space you’re in.

I’m sure you can think of many more sources of energy.  The important thing to consider is that the quality of the energy you take in will affect the quality of the energy you experience and give out.  And, as energy is our way of communicating with and experiencing this world, doesn’t it make sense to aim for the highest quality you can?

No surprise that Debenhams bucks retail trends

The UK department store Debenhams has bucked current retail trend by announcing better than expected revenue and pre-tax  profits for the summer months and running into
their year end accounts in October.

Many are asking how they’ve managed it and many intellectual observations have been made.  However, if we look at the energy around the Debenhams brand and the organisation, we can throw a little more light on their current success.

The brand ‘Debenhams’ has a numerological energy of 3.  This energy is creative and, for want of a better word, bouncy.  It finds ways to achieve things.  Sometimes the energy can go off in all sorts of different directions which is not associated with the Debenhams we know.  But, if you look at the organisation’s incorporation date (or its birth date) it is ruled
by the 6 Heaven star in Feng Shui Astrology. (Incorporation date 28/1/1905).  This makes it trustworthy, reliable and calms that bouncy 3 energy down.

This year the 6 Heaven star is in an energetic house bringing wealth and creativity so it’s hardly surprising that Debenhams continues to be not just a part of UK retail, but a successful player.

They plan to move their headquarters and overhaul their flagship Oxford Street branch in 2013.  The overhaul is well starred as they’ll be in their own house for that year and
very stable.  My only tip would be to have an energetic survey done on their new headquarters.  They’ve done so well so far it would be a shame to ignore a little Feng Shui to keep their fortunes sweet.

Of course, it’s easy to apply numerology and Feng Shui astrology in retrospect.  Both are much more effective when applied in the early stages of a business or at crucial
points in an organisation’s life cycle and growth phases.  Date Selection and Branding can be given a ‘once over’ in terms of Feng Shui and numerology to ensure that the best possible energies are being utilised to ensure success.  Many successful businesses and business people use these energetic tools to give them an edge in an increasingly competitive world.

What’s in a name?

Sticks & stones may break my bones

But names can never hurt me

But is that really true?

A name is more than a selection of letters put together to give something or someone a label.  A name is an energetic force which grows stronger the more it’s used.  And this force affects all aspects of our lives.  Just think how scared people are of the word ‘cancer’.  Or how we long to hear those three little words ‘I love you’.

The associations with these words, and many others, are significant but, on an even more fundamental level the energy of the words and the energy of each letter in the word can have a profound subliminal effect on us.

The study of this effect is called Numerology.  Perhaps an unusual word in itself as we’re talking about letters but numerology works on the basis that the fundamental language of our world is mathematics which underlies nature, the solar system, music and the spoken word.  As such each letter of our alphabet relates to an archetypal number and a particular type of energy.

Numerology also considers dates so combine your date of birth with your name and you can get a very accurate picture of you: your skills, talents, character, strengths, weaknesses, life purpose and even karmic debt that you may be here to repay in this lifetime.

So what happens if you change your name?  For example, if you get married and adopt your husband’s surname or double barrel both surnames.  Or perhaps you’re called by a nick name in certain situations.

Well, name changes can add nuances and differences to your character.  However, if the differences are large it will take time to assimilate the new energy into your overall energetic blueprint.  When you do you may discover new aspects of you or, if the difference from your original energy is very diverse you may feel as if there’s a fight or conflict going on inside you.  It may even manifest physically with a schizophrenic condition.

Of course, some people change their name because they want to harness a different energy.  Many actors take stage names and method actors will live the character they are
playing, including adopting the character’s name, to take on the energy and produce an Oscar winning performance.

Others try to cheat the system and change their name in order to change their lives.  Sometimes this works – if they used a skilled numerologist to ensure they get the change
right.  But, underneath it all, their original, intended-by-the-universe, essence will still be there.  The key to getting the right energy in the first place is to use the services of a numerologist when deciding on a name for your unborn child.

Numerology can also be applied to businesses.  A business incorporation date is deemed its birthday and the name can be assessed or chosen numerologically to bring the
right type of energy to that business.

Combine this with Feng Shui to get the business branding right and any venture can maximise its chance of success.

We live in a world where everything is labelled – even us.  A name tag is certainly better than a number.  And, without a doubt, our name can alter people’s perception of us, our own perception of us and the mark we leave on the world.

Your name says a whole lot about you and what you decide to call others may have a big effect on them.

Sticks and stones may break my bones and names can really hurt

What does yours say about you?

A dying art or a lost treasure of knowledge?

Today is National Letter Writing Day and a survey commissioned by children’s charity World Vision found that one in five 7 – 14 year olds had never received a handwritten letter.

Now, there are a lot of questions and opinions about what is real communication as opposed to virtual communication a la email, texting etc.  Communication is communication, whatever the style.

But I don’t want to talk about the pros and cons of our ever expanding technology.  I want to talk about how sad I feel about what these kids are missing out on.

Letter WritingWhen I was a child one of the best presents I ever had was a writing case.  It wasn’t a fancy writing chest that Victorian ladies could boast about.  It was a zip up case that held a writing pad, some envelopes, stamps and a pen.  I loved my writing case.  And it was used pretty regularly because I had two pen friends, one in this country and one in Sweden which I thought was very exotic.

The thrill of getting a letter popped through the letter box was fantastic and that’s one reason I’m sad for these kids.  Even now, I still rush to see what the postman has bought me.  If it’s all junk mail well maybe tomorrow I’ll get something unexpected.

Another reason I feel sadness is that these kids are missing out on the act of writing which, as I claim to be a writer, is close to my heart.  Writing isn’t about putting squiggles on paper.

Most letters of our alphabet descended from the Hebrew alphabet.  In fact, they’re not letters at all.  They’re symbols – with meanings.  Symbols are the language of our subconscious so when we use them they inherently cause a reaction, even though we may not consciously register that reaction. 

You might say that we still use them when we type but when we type all we are doing is pressing a key.  We are not drawing the symbol, the act of which seems to connect us to the spirit of that symbol.

Letters are also very closely linked to numbers, which form the basis of mathematics which is known as the language of the universe.  And like letters numbers are also symbols with their own inherent meaning that we connect to.

I have to admit that these days I write by typing straight into a word processing program.  It’s easier to keep my fingers matching the speed of my mind.  But recently I was going through a period of scarcity in the words department and a friend suggested I write by hand instead of sitting at the computer.

So, I sat down in a comfy chair rather than being hunched over my desk, relaxed and the words flowed.  They seemed to bypass my conscious mind completely.   I still write a lot at the desk but quite often I’ll just curl up somewhere and write on a notepad.  Unfortunately my handwriting isn’t great and my hands can’t seem to go quite fast enough to keep up with my mind.  This makes typing it up later hellish but it’s worth it.

Our language is rich, our words and letter fascinating if you take the time to really see them.  It’s not just about the literal meaning of the word but also the symbolic meaning and it seems to me a shame that some kids are missing out on the pleasure that I had as a kid and still have now.

So, if you have children, introduce them to letter writing.  You never know, if it’s so rare these days it might even become trendy!
