Ask Andrea: Good and Bad Energy
Is there good and bad energy?
Everything is energy/frequency/vibration/flow. Everything! Energy, in and of itself, is not good or bad. It is the intention behind or the misuse of the energy that makes it correct or incorrect. Words, thoughts, emotions, ideas and actions all are energy. If they originate from the state of love and compassion they appear to be “good”, helpful, positive and kind. If they originate out of the state of hate and fear, they appear to be “bad,” negative, damaging and hurtful. Intention drives energy.
There is really no bad energy except stuck energy. Acting out judgment, fear, blaming anger, resentment, are examples of sticky energies. Offering acceptance, forgiveness, love and joy are flowing energies. In addition, we draw the energy of our current state of being. Universal energy has an electromagnetic quality. If we are angry and resentful, we draw it. If we are loving, kind and accepting, we draw that. This is what is meant by free will. We have the ability to choose. Although we may be in denial, we know at some level when we are in or dealing with negative energy. It is up to us to change it or move away from it.
Energy healing modalities, particularly Energy Psychology, are helpful here when we can’t seem to find our way.
