Many people don’t believe in energy because they can’t see it or touch it. Interestingly though, most everyone feels energy, even if they are not recognizing it for what it is. It’s easy to explain off those feelings as one thing or another, but make no mistake about it, energy is all around us. If it weren’t, then you and I wouldn’t be here. Most people believe that life is nourished and sustained by other ‘physical objects’, such as food, yet, this is not actually how life maintains itself. Energy is the substance that sustains life. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, etc. do not sustain life, it is the energy inside of these substances that enables life to exist here. Our bodies are in essence biological machines which run on energy, not dirt. Without energy, there is no life.
Energy is flowing and moving around us all the time, if it were not so, we would not be alive. As a conscious, energetic being you have a unique way of interacting with energy, and your mind consciously controls your energy. When your mind is placed on things outside of you like objects, ideas, events, or people, then your energy leaves your body and follows your thoughts. Conversely, when your mind focuses on your body, you attract and deepen your energy (life force) within your physical structure. This is the essence of many energetic physical arts, such as the ancient practice of Qi Gong.
