I have been wrestling with how to get across my blog for today. The dictionary defines energy as: “The strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity. (changes in the levels of vitamins can affect energy and well-being); or: “A person’s physical and mental powers.” (an alternative is to devote your energies to voluntary work). But I have been wanting to explain that more spiritual energy without making it sound like I have lost the plot.
Then, along came Dr Jill Bolte Taylor, in her book “My Stroke of Insight” (1) and explains from the inside out that “We are composed of energy and energy fields, which interconnect us to all things.” (2). This book is well worth a read if you want to read more detail.
Dr Taylor, a brain scientist, had a stroke which affected the left side of her brain. In her book she shares her experience and her subsequent understanding that she gained during her 8 year recovery. Here is a 20 minute TED talk where she speaks of what it was like, what happened ad what it is like now. Very interesting and well worth watching.
With love, light and harmony
