(Humanity Healing) Empathy: can the energy of others condition your own?
Why other people’s energies affect your own?
Are your emotions on a rollercoaster because of the other people in your energy field? Humans beings can and do absorb Others’ energy. We are all born with different degrees of empathy. This ability explains why people feel uncomfortable when they are along with a particular group of folks. This conclusion came from a research study carried out by the University of Bielefeld. It has been shown that humans are continually influenced by the energies of their environment.
Just like the flowers need water and light to develop and bloom, human beings are no different. Our physical bodies are like sponges, absorbing part of what gravitates into the environment. We all have a person with whom we live who can be sucking all our energy and leaving us exhausted. The opposite is also true: there is always that person whose presence inspires, motivates, and nurtures us.
Sadly, Human beings can also absorb the sensations emanated by animals in general. That’s the reason why being in touch with nature is a stimulating and energizing experience for so many people. On the other hand, Zootherapies or assisted therapy with animals also have a mission to consciously harness the animals’ energies to improve the human patients’ conditions.

The relationship between the state of mind and the energy level
Energy may be defined as the ability of a body to perform work. All bodies can accumulate it and produce changes about themselves and/or other elements. When we do any activity, what we are doing is basically a transfer of energy. Energy is never wasted; it is only transformed.
All living things need different kinds of energies to develop our activities, and we get them through food. We can also get them from nature, more precisely in the wind, water, heat, light, etc. Without a doubt, empathy is essential for our lives. The absence of it hinders many of our day-to-day activities, such as moving, caring, working, or playing sports.
The energy of our body influences and modifies our state of mind. According to some psychologists, such as Robert Thayer, mood reflects the association between Vitality and emotions. It fluctuates between an energetic state (from more tried to more active) and a state that refers to the degree of nervousness (between the calmer and the tenser). The “best” is considered a peaceful and energetic state, and the worst is an anxious and tired state.
The man usually becomes what he believes he is.
How to increase positive energy?
When our personal energy is low, everything becomes more complicated, and the difficulties are exponentially multiplied. It is necessary to ask ourselves what actions, events, or people bring us a Positive, Upbeat, and energetic state. Activities and people who offer us good energy help us to be more proactive with our lives.
To increase our energy status and surround ourselves with positive people, we have to develop a program to work internally.
Following, we collected 4 tips that can help us achieve an excellent energy state:
1. Keep the focus on our goals so that the energy does not disperse. 2. Cultivate a mind-state of non-resistance. What we resist turns out to be a problem. 3. To be aware of our limits without judging yourselves for it. 4. Try to Focus your energy on those goals in which you have greater control.
On the other hand, we have to look for activities that help us stay motivated. For some, it is enough to practice exercises, walk in the field, share tasks, or change habits. We have to find what recharges our batteries and try to include it in our day today. Likewise, it is also beneficial to keep people with a similar approach close by so that they too can take advantage of the energy you emanate.
Choosing our daily environment, friends, activities, and, above all, our life partners influences our state of mind. Surrounding affable people with positive energy provides us with significant help in meeting the challenges, both the metaphysical and, of course, the more mundane ones as well.
