Raw Food Life Force Energy
Tapping the Secret Laws of Life Force Energy
In ancient Chinese medicine it was named chi1 or qi. The Japanese named it ki. In India it goes by the name prana. The Hawaiians call it manna, and the African Bushmen call it boiling energy. They all recognized the same timeless force that we in the West call Life Force Energy. All ancient traditions understand that Life Force Energy needs to flow freely and abundantly from the energy fields surrounding us into our physical body for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being to be possible.
If Life Force Energy is the power that breathes life into everything that lives, it's not something that you want to go through life low on, though most people do. The one thing everyone is after—a great-looking, healthy appearance—can easily be attained simply by increasing the flow of this key ingredient in the body. In a world constantly in search of the miracle food, there is simply nothing on the planet that is as good for you as Life Force Energy!
Life Force Energy is a real, measurable force that surrounds everything on our planet. The ancient traditions considered it to be highly nutritive2; they knew there was a much more powerful nourishing force at play than just solid foods. Now it is time for the Western world to give credit where credit is due—not to milk, grain, and beef, which rob us of our life force—but to chi, ki and prana, which provide it!
Before I go into how to get more Life Force Energy flowing through yourbody, let's take a quick look at how energy actually flows. Just like everything else on the planet, you possess an energetic field, which we'll call your energy body for the purposes of this book. Your energy body emanates all around you in all directions, extending out several feet. It carries vital, life-enhancing energy into your physical body from the pulsating energy in the Universal Energy Field (the energy phenomenon that permeates all space and connects all things to each other3) into your personal electromagnetic field. From your electromagnetic field, it enters into your physical body through invisible pathways called meridians, making critical deposits to energy centers in the physical body called chakras and to the organs connected with points, best known as acupuncture points. This is how the body constantly refreshes its energy supply, recharging each and every cell with enlivened health. When we live inharmoniously, this whole system falls completely out of balance, distorting how we look and feel.
Your energy body is a mirror of your physical body and vice versa; depending on how your energy body flows, it determines the shape of your body and the shape of your life. If it is flowing well, you will look and feel marvelous. If it is not, you will look and feel crummy. If you look tired and sallow, it's because your energy body has stagnated. If you are cellulite-ridden with varicose veins, your energy body is not feeding you the vital force that would otherwise prevent that from ever happening. If you are overweight, sluggish, and irritable, so is your energy body.
The Universal Energy Field, Life Force Energy, and your energy body are invisible only because they are made up of rapidly pulsating light-waves that can't be seen by the untrained, naked eye. Your energy body is sustained not by vitamins, minerals, and glucose, but by the very Life Force Energy of which it is made. I know it's hard to conceive of something like an energy field having an effect on your weight or emotions, but each is a mirror of the other and you'll be blown away when you see the physical results that come from harmonizing your energy body!
If it's more energy we want, we need to start living in such a way that encourages the abundant flow of Life Force Energy and brings us into a state of natural harmony. In the following chapters, I introduce the four principles that will help you better understand the characteristics of Life Force Energy so you can maximize its power in your body.Raw Food Life Force Energy.
