For quite some time, even before I learned about Dr. Wilhelm Reich and his study of “life force” energy…Source, Ether…orgon I was very conscious of energy and my interaction with it. I can feel it everywhere in people, places and things. To me it’s like a thin veil, a matrix all around us and some of us can actually sense it, see it, feel it. When I’m outside doing my exercises which flows into meditation with Mother Nature, I try to be conscious of this energy field….touch it. Sometimes I image my fingers permeating it like one does when you stick your hand in a water source…liquid, flowing, warm. You can feel a slight tingling, pressure and warmth against your hands when you connect with it. It makes me feel so connected and alive!
To describe what I see when I see this energy field is like the pixilation of a television screen only at a much denser level if that makes sense. At night the color is a dark blue or purple color. At first I thought I needed my eyes checked lol – they say when your vision is going you might see white “floaties” but I gradually discounted this the more I learned about what Dr. Reich discovered, witnessed for himself and was able to capture in the lab. The very air we breath is this Source — this is why our breathing is so important! A funny thing I think about is “just breathing through it” when it comes to my crochet and I get a nasty knot in the thread. When I just relax and breath when considering the knot…it unwinds quickly versus when I get pissed and breath shallowly or in a short…angry fashion.
This course of thinking can be applied to human emotions I think. The phrase, “count to ten” before you say something in anger really applies here. Those deep breathes help reduce the blood pressure and elevation anger can take you to…give your brain a chance to sort out what’s going on with oxygen flowing freely within it. This is what I’ve discovered in my own personal experience so I don’t speak as a specialist in any other field than my body “-)
I challenge you to stand still outside for a moment today and look at the sky with new eyes. What do you see? A clear blue sky or something more? Look at the areas around tree leaves, flowers and grass. When I look at these things from a conscious perspective like I’m suggesting to you….I image you will see it too. We take this beautiful gift of the Earth for granted and discount her humanity so often. To me she is a living, breathing being just like any of us alive on this planet are…we came from her…we are her….she is us.
Think about your interactions with others and your “bubble” of comfort when meeting with people. For me the bubble expands, my “shields up” kind of thing, when it comes to meeting new people or interacting with others in public. When I am with family, friends and people I know my bubble retracts further in…I allow these people closer access to me.
As an Empath aka Highly Sensitive Person I have had to learn the hard way in regards to energy and having a healthy “bubble” and or boundaries. When energy vampires meet someone like me and I don’t have my shield in place….yum yum gonna feed on Jackie. I’ve had to learn that when I go out into public I must “put on my holy armor” lol or pay for it later. I’ve gotten so I can sense when someone is taking more than they are giving and enjoy the pleasure of meeting fellow Empaths or just really positive people who meet me and we interact on a balanced level. Like difference of when a magnet will attract or repel.
As human beings we must develop consciousness of ourselves as beings containing energy and thus how this energy affects others and the environment we live in. We are ironically part of the “Matrix” of life and I believe this matrix to be pure energy – many scientists in the more junior fields of Quantum Physics and Mechanics are proving this.
Here are some highlights from an article I found that is interesting and a great overview of Dr. Reich’s body of work if your interested to learn more:
BIO-ELECTRICAL EXPERIMENTS, BIONS,
AND THE DISCOVERY OF ORGONE ENERGY
(1934 — 1939)
“The discovery of orgone energy was made through consistent, thorough study of energy functions, first in the realm of the psyche, and later in the realm of biological functioning.”
– from Ether, God and Devil
Reich traveled to Scandinavia where, despite incessant bureaucratic interferences, he managed to continue his research. In Oslo, while continuing to teach and develop his therapeutic techniques, Reich undertook a series of laboratory experiments to verify the existence of a physical biological energy expressed in the emotions.
Using human subjects, Reich was able to demonstrate a charge at the skin’s surface directly related to feelings of pleasure and anxiety. This charge would increase when a subject felt pleasure, and decrease during feelings of unpleasure. From this, Reich concluded that pleasure is the movement of biological energy toward the periphery of the organism, while anxiety is the movement of this energy toward the center. Reich initially assumed that biological excitation of living matter might be electrical, but the results of these experiments indicated otherwise. For example, the biological energy that Reich measured moved in a slow, wave-length fashion, in contrast to electromagnetic energy which moves much faster. Reich wondered if similar energy processes existed in more basic life forms.
This led Reich to conduct laboratory experiments in which he used time-lapse motion picture equipment affixed to microscopes with over 3000x magnification to record the development of protozoa. During these experiments Reich discovered that under certain conditions, sterilized and unsterilized substances–grass, blood, sand, charcoal and foodstuffs–disintegrate into pulsating vesicles that often exhibit a bluish color. Reich observed internal motility in these vesicles, an effect of energy. He called these vesicles “bions,” after the Greek word for “life.”
Reich’s research also revealed that certain bions exhibited a strong radiation phenomena, and that these bions could kill bacteria and cancer cells. This radiation confirmed the existence of an energy that did not obey any known laws of electricity or magnetism. Reich called this energy “orgone,” because its discovery had evolved from his investigation of the orgasm function, and because this energy could charge organic materials. When Reich published his findings, the scientific and psychiatric communities responded with a vicious year-long attack in the Norwegian press.
In the wake of this attack, and the inevitability of a second world war, Reich began to look to America as the future home for his work. Theodore Wolfe, M.D.–a representative of American psychosomatic medicine who had come to Oslo to study with Reich–was instrumental in arranging for Reich’s emigration. When Reich was invited to teach at the New School for Social Research in New York City, the U.S. State Department finally issued him a visa in the summer of 1939. On August 19, Reich sailed for America on the last ship to leave Norway before World War II broke out.
