About the Author
Wing sees connections between things that seem disparate to others and can help you see their significance in your life. She's an idea person who helps you shift your perspective to see yourself and your life in a whole new way and is a master at bringing magick into the everyday. She wants to live in a world where people feel inspired and motivated to evolve beyond their current way of being. As a Perspective Changer and Blockage Buster, she's a wiz at helping people find their Inner Magick to help them be happy in the present while creating their ideal future.
To that end, Diane Wing created a body of work focused on knowing the self at a deep level in order to build self-trust and self-confidence. Her books, both dark fantasy fiction and enlightening non-fiction, hold lessons based in Universal and Magickal Law and energetic consciousness. Her games, Pathways and Insight Stones®, are systems of metaphysics designed to facilitate self-discovery, develop intuitive ability, and to enhance self-awareness. The emphasis of her school, Wing Academy of Unfoldment, and of her radio show, Wing Academy Radio, helps students and listeners learn ways to take metaphysical and personal development concepts and apply them to everyday life in their own distinct way. It's about going deeper and seeing the patterns of your life.
According to Diane Wing, "Ever since I was little, the world felt magickal. [I use magick with a "k" to differentiate the magic of an illusionist or stage magician from the magick that includes your intuitive abilities and tapping into the flow of the Universe). The world was beautiful and mysterious, filled with things to learn and experience. The path led me to become a lifetime student of metaphysics, mysticism, magick, and spirituality and to achieve a Master's degree in psychology...and it all shows up in my writing. You never know what's waiting around the bend.
"The world still feels magickal to me; every act of nature, every energetic exchange, every new discovery is perceived through the eyes of wonder. I now understand that self-knowledge is the key to all magickal operations; the discovery of our own Inner Magick is essential to living in concert with the Universe. We are the Magician, as in tarot, orchestrating and creating life in accordance with our true self."

Read an Excerpt
The Nature of Energy
Energy is vast and pervasive. It is all around you, forcing you into a relationship with it. All interactions contain an energetic component. The unifying forces of the Universe are omnipresent in both living entities and inanimate objects. People, animals, situations, objects, and environments contain and give off energy. Energetic insight is a source of constant information, an intuitive knowing that increases self-confidence and removes the drama by seeing yourself, others, and situations objectively and accurately.
A Natural Ability
To encounter any of these things creates an energetic interaction. Everyone experiences these energetic exchanges, whether consciously or subconsciously. Because of this dynamic, it is possible to enhance understanding through insight into the energetic relationships that occur in the course of your daily routine and to perceive them objectively. What was once looked upon with emotion, fear, drama, doubt, worry, and guilt becomes pure when the underlying energetic pattern is revealed. As a result, decisions can be made and actions can be taken with a clear heart and mind. Enabling your natural ability to sense the vibrations that are constantly around you creates awareness of energetic shifts within the self and in circumstances outside the self.
Have you ever walked into a room and felt like you wanted to leave right away? Ever met a person for whom you had an instant dislike for no apparent reason? Been around certain people and suddenly feel exhausted? You have probably described a person or object as having "good or bad energy" or certain places as possessing "good or bad vibes." We regularly use phrases such as "that resonates with me" and terms like "harmonious." All of these references demonstrate that we are tuned in to the energy around us and attempt to describe what we innately feel.
It is a natural instinct, our inherent sixth sense possessed by every human and animal on the planet to varying degrees. The majority of people are aware of the energy around them, albeit on a superficial level. This is a means of intuitive knowing; it is the familiar sense of comfort or discomfort when you walk into a room that indicates whether positive or negative energy, or a blend of the two, is within that space. The vibrations could emanate from a certain person or group of people, from within you, or from a particular room or overall physical structure. Raising your energetic consciousness is to develop your natural intuitive ability and to open to a source of information that is constantly available to you. If you prefer the term psychic, it is simply the ability to perceive that which is beyond the five mundane senses of seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, and tasting. And just like some people have a stronger sense of smell or extraordinary hearing, so do some have a stronger sixth sense. While there are inherent individual limitations to the ability, just as with the other senses, it differs from the other five senses in that it is beyond physical limitation and can be developed and enhanced. Also, there are times when energetic sensitivity manifests itself in the other five senses, such as being able to see an auric field or hear the activity of imprinted energies from a time long past. With heightened energetic consciousness, resistance is lessened, flow is increased, and the ability to understand and use energy in specific ways is enhanced.
Energy has no limitations; it can reach anywhere it intends to go. With each gesture, thought, intention, action, and interaction, you move energy. You can choose to be sensitive to the wealth of information contained in the ether around you, or to remain closed off from and unacquainted with your surroundings. By understanding and being consciously aware of the energetic impacts you create, it is possible to improve relationships, to avoid mishaps, and to understand Divine Will while developing a singularly strong will of your own. It is riding the energetic wave in the direction the energy is naturally flowing, the essence of Divine Will, rather than fighting against the current so as to achieve in an effortless way, to manifest, and to thrive in abundance. It is a way to come into your power.
Awareness is the key to understanding the nature of energy. Awareness enables you to influence the way your personal energy flows and the way we project it out into the world. With the ability to sense the forces moving within and between you, it is possible to understand the underlying aspects of a situation. Heightened sensitivity to these forces expands your ability to understand your feelings and reactions, as well as those of others. It also enables you to tap into the vast abundance of Universal Energy.
By increasing your energetic awareness, it is possible to observe energy patterns and consciously change their texture. The ether that moves around and through all things, animate and inert, reacts to your thoughts, feelings, and actions. It connects all things. You make imprints in the ether with your words, actions, thoughts, beliefs, and emotions, and thereby affect the outcome of all events that follow. The way individuals choose to think and behave not only influences them personally, but also affects the vibration of the entire planet.
The techniques and energetic interactions discussed in this book offer alternative ways of perceiving the world and increasing awareness of the energy within and around you. There are numerous methods that vary by culture, tradition, and belief system to enhance your ability to move and influence energy. I encourage you to try not only those mentioned here, but to continue your explorations through other systems of thought and belief, ultimately knowing which are best through your own intuitive voice. To empower yourself fully and increase your effectiveness, I recommend taking aspects of all systems that speak to you, combining them, and adding your personal touch to the mix. It is important that your energetic awareness includes the types of techniques and beliefs that resonate most closely with your vibrational patterns.
Understand that with each shift, the techniques you employ and the beliefs you hold will change. Before embarking on this avenue of exploration into the self, make the decision to be open to a new way of seeing and sensing the world around you. Energetic consciousness allows you to ride the wave of vibrations and follow them to new opportunities. Flexibility is one of the most important aspects of energy, since change is inevitable and resistance to change creates discord within and around you.
When considering the nature of energy, it is essential to ponder its source. The essence of this energy is a conglomeration of everything that is known and unknown, every thought, feeling, and action, every aspect of every type of being. It embodies every archetype, every representation of gods, goddesses, saints, and angels, as well as the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual expressions of all that is. It is the connecting force that binds us together and allows us to understand each other and to feel compassion for one another. If used to best advantage, Source energy fosters elegant interactions between plants and illness to affect a cure, between animals and their environments to foster harmonious relationships, between people to experience growth and enlightenment. When misunderstood or used to its detriment, pain, disharmony, anxiety, fear, doubt, and worry prevail.
The Source goes by many names: God, Infinite Spirit, The One, The Source of All That Is, and Universal Energy, to name a few. Every religion has its own name for this Source of Power. For now, suspend your preconceptions and religious notions of this energy and attempt to take a neutral position regardingits nature. Upholding the nondenominational quality of this text, we refer to this primary energy as Source. Source Energy has no gender, no malice, no love, and no impetus of its own. It connects all beings and things together so that each impacts the other. The attitude of the energy is neutral, having no attachment to outcomes, nor directing activity. Its nature changes as the beings that interact with it change. It holds vast amounts of information imprinted on it over time immeasurable.
Every person, creature, and plant on the planet makes the Source Energy's fabric ripple and change with each energetic impact and dynamic exchange. We can imprint upon it our hopes and dreams, hatred and anger, desires and goals. The way we are impacting this complex weave of energy is an awesome responsibility to be aware of; to understand that our choices affect what we manifest in each moment throughout our lives. We all tap into the same energy source. Each person chooses to brighten the pool with positive thoughts and actions or to pollute it with hatred and fear. We have the power to raise the vibration of the planet to increase harmony and peace or to diminish it into an unmatched state of war and hate.
Every being has its own energy field surrounding it, fueled by and connected to Source. By insuring your ultimate physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health, you can generate a bright, positive energy. Sickness, poor diet, negative thoughts and emotions, substance abuse, and inactivity create a muddy auric field. Light or dark, your personal energy field affects every other on the planet, either bringing them to a higher level or depleting them.
There is a constant energy exchange between everything and everyone with which you associate. The awareness of these exchanges guides you towards or away from certain people, places, and actions. If you allow yourself to be energetically guided, it is a highly accurate compass steering you safely into shore and away from the dangerous rocks. Paying attention to the energetic interactions around you provides continuous learning opportunities by way of the information held within that exchange.
There are always factors and energies at work of which you are unaware. As a result, your actions are based on what you know and then can only surmise that it will have the desired effect. The Source has all of the information available to it that you do not, and so opening to the wisdom of Source is the best way to accomplish goals. This does not exclude you from taking action toward our goals, but it does give you support that do not necessarily factor in when considering the probability of desired outcomes.
With the occurrence of so many simultaneous interactions, probability is the only indicator of what will transpire next. Until you make a decision, formulate an idea, or create a shift in thinking, all potentials have equal probability of taking place. Until then, anything is possible. This is well illustrated from within quantum mechanics: a particle is only a probability until detected. The action we take may support our desires or work against them and, either way, while something may happen, it may not be what we anticipated.
Nothing is pre-ordained and the next action can change the potentiality of possible outcomes to follow. Taking action can contribute to a specific effect, but is not likely to be the only factor or cause of the particular effect. Hence, to produce a desired effect, riding the wave or rhythm of Source Energy is your best bet. You need to take responsibility for the choices you make; they are the expression of free will, and the more closely aligned you are to the natural rhythm of things, the higher the likelihood of taking potential outcomes and making them actual. Energy cannot be forced to do what you want in the timeframe in which you want it to manifest. The Source has its own sense of time, and energies culminate into desired results when all other associated energies to that purpose align with it.
The ability to harness the Source Energy is available to everyone. Tapping into Source, being fully aware of it, and establishing a constant flow and connection is the ultimate goal. By so doing, you are able to flow with Source, acting in accordance with your true nature, and with the Self intuitively aligned with Source. Achieving this level of awareness allows you to go with the flow rather than against the grain, thereby experiencing harmony and success. Aligning your personal energy with that of Source Energy is the core of health, well being, and the materialization of our desires. Going against it makes life feel like a constant struggle.
There is a never-ending redistribution of energetic possibilities due to the perpetual bombardment of thoughts, feelings, and actions upon Source Energy. Opening to these energetic shifts allows choices based on the most up-to-date energy patterns. Getting in synch with that which is around you, whether it emanates from people, places, objects, or ourselves, is to experience the wavelength of the situation and understand its true nature. The guidance system you use to make these choices must include an understanding of the energies within and around you. To discover how to observe, interpret, and direct this abundant energy is to harness the power at our fingertips. By understanding and being consciously aware of the energy within and around you is to remove the drama from your life, enhance your intuition, and manifest your desires.
Energy is the foundational component of energetic consciousness. The amount and quality of energy you have within you is contingent on your diet and overall physical health, beliefs, emotions, and thoughts. The energy that is within you emanates in bands of energy outside of your physical body, known as your auric field. Starting closest to the body, the first band is reflective of your physical body, the second of your emotional body, the third of your mental body, and the fourth of your spirit body. The larger the aura, the more energy and power you possess. If the aura is close to the body, the energy is low and there is a heightened sense of vulnerability and fatigue. When this occurs, the various aspects of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health should be evaluated for how aspects of each are contributing to the low vibrational pattern.
The amount of energy you have indicates the quantity you have available to apply to your daily activities; the vibrational level indicates the quality of that energy. For example, an individual may have a lot of forceful energy, yet a low vibrational level that has the potential to harm themselves or others with that energy. An individual who has lots of energy and a high vibrational level will use that energy for the highest good and create an atmosphere of harmony.
Energetic vibration can be understood as the frequency at which the personal auric field vibrates. The quality of the energy you have at your disposal corresponds to the quality of your life and to the types of experiences you have. The higher the frequency, the more open and connected you are to Divine Source Energy and the higher your level of understanding, personal power, and purpose. The lower your frequency, the more discord you will experience in your life and the more negativity you will attract. Higher frequencies feel lighter; lower frequencies feel heavier.
Higher frequencies can be seen in the visible light spectrum. Purple, the color of the crown chakra (energy center at the top of the head), which is our link to Source energy, is at a higher vibration than red. Red is the color of the root chakra, which is located at the base of the spine, and serves to ground energy within the body and is associated with the denser, physical aspect of our being. Additionally, a higher frequency consists of waves that are short and closer together, while lower frequencies have longer wavelengths.
You have the ability to raise or lower your vibrational level and to recognize where you are vibrating. Why is it important to know where you are vibrating? Lower vibrational levels are more likely to lead to difficulty in your relationships and in your life in general. When your vibrational level increases, you will be less tolerant of discord in relationships and of dissonant environments, ultimately letting go of old, outmoded behaviors and associations and attracting positive energies, relationships, and circumstances. Your vibrational level is also felt by others, so if you have an important meeting or want to give your most desirable self to your family, it is important to adjust your vibrational level so that they can experience you in the best possible way. When you are vibrating in the lower frequencies, you may engage in thoughts or activities that result in much less energy to accomplish your goals and take care of all your responsibilities. When you are energetically aware, you can determine when you are getting too low in energy and then intervene and elevate your vibration using intention. Being conscious of your frequency enables you to do a check-in with yourself and view the situation more objectively to make sure that your perception is accurate.

Setting out specific exercises and thoughts to change your life, for example - How many negative influences are in your life? - This could be as simple as removing someone who only calls to pass on bad news or is always complaining to you. There are exercises that will also help you to feel better about yourself and how to attract positive influences in your life. It explains why certain places and events affect your mood and character. Why do you go to a certain place to feel better? For me it was a visit to the watch the tidal movements that has this effect. This is a book that I would like to revisit time after time to gain the maximum results. An enjoyable, informative read from the author.
Interesting Read “The True Nature of Energy” by Diane Wing contains tools for decreasing the anxiety you feel by interpreting and directing the energies around you. I have to admit this was a bit out of my usual wheelhouse…I have never been one for crystals or auras, but I have always felt a sense of being in tune with the universe and most particularly my body. Therefore, I was intrigued to read this book. The book is well-written and easy to understand, even for a novice with regard to this topic (like me). I was shocked to find such specific examples of anxieties and conditions that I face each day. In particular, the example under “Internal Indicators of External Energies” describing a woman who gained a significant amount of weight after being sexually assaulted. The author states, “…she discovered that if she appears unattractive, then she will be safe from experiencing another attack” (p.23). WOW! The author then goes on to describe how this woman sought professional assistance to help her ‘feel safe in potentially threatening settings.” In addition to relating examples of anxieties addressed by this book, the author describes energies (toxic and healing) that we can tune into to help us with these anxieties. There are even exercises in the back of the book that you can use to work through your own personal anxieties. I was especially drawn to the routines she describes to “Ground and Protect” in the morning, and “Clean and Rejuvenate” in the evening. I have even written the basic steps for each of these on a notecard that I carry with me everywhere. It is surprisingly calming and refreshing to be able to ‘do’ something positive to bring peace in the midst of tumultuous energy.
