The idea that you can “be one” with the energy of the universe and use it to shape your own reality can sound fanciful at first.
However, when we explore the theory behind this idea, we discover that everything is energy and we all have the power to influence it.
All you need to do is develop a particular set of skills.
Below, we take an in-depth look at how to be one with the universe's energy.
Beginning with an explanation of the nature of universal energy, we'll then give you advice for boosting your own universal energy.
Next, we'll offer four powerful strategies for using universal energy to help transform your reality.
Finally, we'll suggest how you can combine what you've learned with Law of Attraction techniques.
What is universal energy, then? It is the thing that makes up matter, and matter, in turn, makes up all we see and feel.
Albert Einstein was the first to observe that everything is energy, noting that the idea we can shape our own realities was a fact about physics rather than a piece of speculative philosophy.
In addition, energy is eternal – it cannot be created or destroyed. The amount and kind of energy around you now is the same energy that was around 100 or 500 years ago, and the same energy that will exist in 300 years.
We can change everything just by observing it. For example, the famous double-slit experiment in quantum physics proved that a light particle can be in more than one place at once.
Meanwhile, another experiment on randomized sound showed that a person's desire to hear more sound in one ear made the sound in that ear increase.
And you can tap into the same power to influence your body, mind, and the world around you.
You can start to boost your own connection with universal energy in all sorts of surprisingly simple ways. The main thing you should be working to do is make your desire to direct universal energy known.
In addition, since energy attracts other energy that is similar to it, you will want to try and create as much positivity as you can.
For example, you could commit to directing a small act of kindness towards a stranger every day, and to doing a favor for a friend at least once a week.
Similarly, a gratitude journal encourages you to focus on 3-5 things you appreciate each day, which imbues you with positive energy that then attracts more positivity into your life.
Now that you have a better sense of the nature of universal energy and your capacity to connect to it just by living and thinking in more optimistic ways, let's turn to how you can begin using universal energy to transform reality.
The following four techniques will help you manifest whatever you want to change in your life, whether you're looking for a new partner, an ideal job, financial abundance, or something else entirely.
Combined with the above positivity strategies, these exercises make you a magnet for positive change.
In the simplest terms, your RAC (i.e., reticular activating system) is a network of neural cells in your brain that help ensure you focus on what you are interested in.
Your RAC makes it possible for you to filter out irrelevant things, such as background noise when you're trying to listen to someone.
And as you'll know from everyday life, when you pay more attention to something it becomes more prominent in your world. This is the RAC in action.
You can harness the RAC for your own purposes by focusing (and refocusing) your attention on what you want to create.
For example, turn your attention to the beauty in the world to draw more positivity into your life.
Or imagine the goal you want to meet, and notice how you take faster steps toward it.
Secondly, you should begin to pay more attention to your state of consciousness and the things that affect it.
Think about how different reality looks depending on your mood, on whether you've had alcohol to drink, on whether you're on drugs or you've experienced a significant loss.
There are two things you can do to create a happier, more successful reality by affecting your state of consciousness.
For one thing, try to cut out things you know upset or destabilize you – or at least cut down on them.
In addition, start noting the things that are making you feel positive and making the world around you become richer and more rewarding.
For some people, music plays this role, instantly shifting their way of being in a way that rearranges reality to match. For others, physical activity is more powerful or creating art.
As you might already be gathering, the focus is key to harnessing and using universal energy to change your world.
All matter reduces to energy vibrations, and our perception is what determines how that energy arranges itself around us.
In other words, if you stay focused on what you truly want, then your energy exerts a pull on the energy around you to shape itself into what you want to perceive.
But how do you stay focused?
Some of the tips we gave for building positivity applies here, too, such as dream boarding and keeping a journal describing the life you want to live.
In addition, however, you might try using tools like affirmations – statements you recite to yourself that summarise what you want.
For example, you might say “I get closer to my dream job every day” into the morning each morning, or “I attract the love I deserve.”
Finally, while we've been stressing the value of positivity, that's not to say you should ignore the more negative parts of yourself.
Rather, you need to actively challenge beliefs that undermine your ability to shape your reality.
The importance of belief can't be overstated, as if you don't really believe you can get what you want then you won't ever be able to harness universal energy in the way you need.
One way to push back against old, limiting beliefs is to notice when they arise, and then generate a replacement.
For example, if you grew up being told that you talk too much, then when someone ends a conversation you might immediately think “I've bored this person and they don't want to know me.”
When you write out a replacement, the new belief might be “That was a good conversation, but this person has other commitments too.” The more you do this, the fewer negative beliefs hold you back.
Experts in manifestation tell us that we receive what we send out, and everything you now know about universal energy helps to explain why.
When you combine an understanding of universal energy with the manifestation exercises Law of Attraction proponents suggests, you can become more powerful than ever at creating the life you want to lead.
