Energy is something that people are either very aware of or completely oblivious too. Every one of us carries a certain energy, and that energy changes depending on what's happening in our life at the moment.
Have you ever been with a person who just put off a bad vibration? You didn't have any concrete evidence that this person has wronged you or done something to offend you, but you can just feel their toxic energy. You're not alone. In fact, most people pick up on these feelings quite often, but never fully understand why.
A study out of the University of Bielefeld in Germany discovered that plants often absorb the energy of other plants. Physician and therapist, Olivia Bader-Lee, decided to investigate their findings a bit further.
While plants' main source of energy is through photosynthesis, it was found that they utilize an additional source of energy: other plants. A concept that runs parallel to Bader-Lee's claim that the human body is like a sponge, absorbing the different energies around us.
"This is exactly why there are people who feel uncomfortable when they are in a certain group with a mixture of energy and emotions," explains Bader-Lee.
"The human body is very similar to a plant that sucks, absorbs the energy needed to feed your emotional state, and can energize the cells and increase the amount of cortisol and catabolize, feed the cells depending on the emotional need."
Bader-Lee's explanation sheds a bit of light on how and why people are capable of shifting their moods at any given moment.
She continues, saying that much of mankind has lost its link to nature, a loss that keeps humanity from benefitting from any energy exchange. Sometimes that link is recreated, however, an event that often manifests itself as something we would call "paranormal" or "supernatural."
Many ancient cultures recognize these extraordinary events as the result of different energies culminating and appearing at different times.
