Energy is superior to Chemistry. Energy controls Chemistry.
Chemistry responds to Energy. If we modify the Energy, Chemistry follows to match the tapestry of energy.
For short term changes we can modify chemistry, e.g. with supplements, food or pain killers. Chemistry can affect energy TEMPORARILY. To thrive sustainably we want to look at ENERGY. When the energy is dealt with, biological and chemical processes adapt to the new energetic pattern and begin to harmonize within our body if the energy is harmonized first. Harmonizing the energy takes more commitment but leads to SUSTAINABILITY.
Let's take our emotional well-being as an example.
The gut is the seat of our emotions and intuition. A study found that daily comsumption of probiotic yogurt was responsible for more stable emotional responses of the participants when exposed to a stressful situation. In this case, the probiotic yogurt acts like a natural medication that has a positive effect on emotional balance when taken DAILY. This approach is: Chemistry first
And then there is an energetic approach to emotional balance.
And we would ask: What is the underlying energy of my emotional imbalance? E-motions are energy in motion and when emotions are not allowed to 'flow' through your gut they become stuck in your gut. They remain unexpressed but are released in small or big volcano like spouts. That's where you begin to ask: Do I suppress my emotions? How come I suppress my emotions? Maybe the answer would be that you are afraid of being judged if you followed your impulse and freely expressed a feeling in the moment it arises or the answer might be something else. You could then ask how come I am afraid of showing and feeling my way through emotions? You could then look at how your parents dealt with emotions. Was the full expression of your emotions allowed for or were they energetically or verbally overwritten by the mind of your parents. This approach is: Energy first
In a nutshell, if you get to the Energy, you get to the core and your body chemistry begins to harmonize because the energy is being addressed and harmonized.
Dealing with energy is a process and not as easy and quick as something you can simply eat or take. Humanity has been operating for eons with an Chemistry first approach when it is Energy that runs the show in the background. So when we look at energy first, we begin to claim our true power and within the process of doing so, sustainability is being created and we can begin to thrive instead of putting all of our focus and energy into maintaining.
In my life Energy comes FIRST! And as I am dealing with the energy first, I very much appreciate probiotics, supplements, juicing and all those things that my vessel LOVES to run as optimal as possible while I transition from chemical maintaining to energetic thriving.
Remember: Chemistry follows Energy and Energy runs the show in the background.
