Projective and Receptive Energy
Projective and receptive energy refers to the flow of your personal energy; projective energy flows out of the body (it’s being projected away from you) and receptive energy takes energy in from around it. We can manipulate these energy currents to receive information from the energy fields around us, or influence the surrounding energy. You also have projective and receptive hands. Typically, the dominant hand (weather you’re right or left handed) is the best to use when projecting your energy, while the other is best to receive. This is not a hard fixed rule though; always listen to your body! One may discover, through practise, that their left hand is projective even though they’re right handed. This is perfectly fine! The idea is to feel and establish one side where energy naturally seems to flow out of you, and you’ll likely find that the other side will naturally be more receptive or more sensitive to energy. Experiment and find what works for you!
Projective energy can be used to influence the space around your energy field. This can be helpful when creating a protective space around you, and when influencing the mood of the room to induce love, lust, happiness or peace. All living beings naturally project some of their life energy and vitality, so with practise one can easily learn how to be more conscious of the energy we emanate. Like energy is attracted to like energy, so it’s important to be conscious of the energy we’re putting into the universe. High vibrational, positive energy will attract high vibrational, positive energy, and the same goes for low vibrational, negative energy. There are tools, such as pendulums, that can physically show the projection of energy during activities such as meditation. Simply hold the end of the pendulum in your projective hand and focus your energy out of your body down through your hand, and watch the swinging pattern of the pendulum increase.
Receptive energy can be used to store energy or receive information. Items with receptive energy tend to take on the energy of the environment around it. This is why receptive stones should be cleansed more often. Some stones can be used as reserves to store energy to be used later on, and they’re even said to be able to house spirits. When we, as humans, focus on receiving energy, it can be possible to gain information about a person, place or thing through our sixth sense. To do this, first, meditate on clearing your mind. Once your mind is completely empty, you can then place your receptive hand on an item to take in its energy. If you’re reading the energy of a place or person, make contact with your receptive hand. Place your hand in a spot that you feel is giving off the most energy – the top of the head, hands or third eye works well when reading people, and the foundation or ground supporting a place is a good starting point. After lots of practise, it’s possible to start to receive images, feelings, and other information from the energy of items like stones or from the energy in the environment around you. By taking in information this way, it’s possible to learn and receive information that would otherwise be out of reach.
