There are Spiritual energies all round us at all times. Most people do not realize this but those who are more sensitive are. We must realize that we are not all that exists in this realm. Because you cannot see it does not mean it is not there. Being aware of it is important for many reasons.

Having an awareness of these energies broadens our horizons. When we are aware that there is more than what you can see in the material realm, we open ourselves up to endless possibilities. We then can begin to become more sensitive to these presences and know that we are more than just our physical body.

Becoming aware of the energy around us is really not as difficult as you might think. The best way, as always, is through meditation. Meditation makes your mind and body more relaxed. When you are more relaxed it is easier to be aware of the energies in other realms. Meditation also causes you to have a much more open mind which is always very important when you want to be more in tune with the Spiritual Realm.

The most important way to be aware of these energies is to be more mindful. When you are present and mindful, the sense of sight is more heightened and you can see beyond the physical realm. The best way to be mindful is to constantly focus on the task hand. When you find your mind wandering, just bring your focus back to what you are currently doing.

Another way to do this is to not only focus on physical objects. We have a habit of placing our focus only the physical things around us. When we soften our gaze, we then are more able to see the subtle energies around us.

What do these energies look like? They mostly appear as a wave of energy like you would see around the gas pump at the gas station. They can also appear as tiny fuzzy sparkles, lights and orbs. When you are more advanced you may see the actual forms of the beings or their colors. The other way to see energy is around the people themselves which are auras.

We need to be more aware of what is around us because we need to have the awareness that there is more in existence than just what appears solid. The Spirits around us want us to be aware of them in order to be able to guide us through our lives. This awareness brings us more in tune with the Spiritual things, brings us knowledge and gives us freedom and hope. – John
