Dear Friends,

Do you ever have one of those days where you just feel like the best idea would be to crawl back in bed? Where no matter what you do, you just can’t feel energized, even after drinking that pot of coffee? Everyone has those days and it’s perfectly natural. But what many people don’t realize, is that there is a never ending source of energy right at your fingertips. By sharing energy with the universe, or even with those around you, you can feel more energized and alive than you ever imagined possible.

Energy sharing is a very powerful and magickal thing. However, though we have an over-abundance of energy in the universe for our taking, many people are not aware of how to tap into that source. Even more are not aware of how to take that energy properly. Energy sharing can be beneficial to both you and those around you, providing you learn when it is OK to share that energy and when it is not.

Energy Sharing with the Earth

The best source of energy is the universe around you. Everything that exists in this vast universe surrounding us is filled with energy. For those of us here on earth, the best source of energy is Gaia herself. In all of her love for us, Gaia is more than happy to share her energy with us and help to empower us so that we feel our best. And fortunately, sharing energy with Gaia is a very simple thing to do.

Energy sharing with the earth is easy, and only takes a few moments. It does however, take focus and concentration. The way that I find easiest to enjoy this sharing magick, is to take it directly from the earth. Go outside and sit on the ground. You can take a blanket or altar cloth with you to sit on so that your clothes do not get soiled, and still reap all of the energy benefits.

Sit, or even lie, on the ground in a comfortable position. Place your hands upon the ground and close your eyes. Visualize the energy from the earth slowly seeping into you. Be careful! Don’t try and take too much energy or you’ll wind up feeling like you just ate a pound of pure sugar. Simply visualize it slowly seeping in, providing you with the energy that you need to feel better. You will actually be able to feel the fatigue fading away. Stay this way for a few minutes, then thank the earth for sharing it’s energy with you and go on about the rest of your day fully energized and feeling great. Keep in mind this only works if you are connected with the actual earth, not sitting on a piece of concrete or other man-made structure.

Energy Sharing with People

It is also possible to share energy with the people around you as will. Energy sharing with people however, is a bit more complex and comes with some moral issues. You should never, ever take energy from a person without their knowledge and permission. This is not sharing, it is stealing and makes you what is referred to as an energy vampire. Stealing energy from others is not an ethical practice and can cause a good amount of harm to them.

Now giving energy to another person without their knowledge can be a topic of great debate. Many people feel that giving your energy freely to another that is not feeling well is purely helpful and safe, and that there is no reason to share the knowledge that you are doing so with them, particularly if they are a non-believer.
I personally feel that is a decision that each person must evaluate and make on their own. I will admit, there have been a few occasions when I have given my energy to another without their knowledge. While no ill has seem to come of it, it is not something I do often and feel that it is an act that must be taken into consideration greatly before doing it.

To share energy with another person, you simply need to touch the other individual in some way and visualize yourself giving or taking the energy. Open yourself to feel the energy coming in to you, or going out into the other person. It should only takes a few seconds. In fact, you can transfer energy as quickly as you can shake a hand. Do not let it take more than a few seconds though, or you may take or give too much energy causing the person giving the energy to become too fatigued.

The magick of energy sharing is a very powerful thing. My personal beliefs are that you should take your energy from the earth whenever possible, as energy sharing with another person can sometimes develop a co-dependent relationship that is not healthy. In some circumstances though, sharing energy between two people is the only option. As with all things in Magick, it is up to you to evaluate each situation, and determine what the right choice is for you at the time.

Brightest Blessings,

    This is very good, however, there those of us who cannot get down on the ground due to physical dissabilities. I’ve found that if I sit in a chair or on a bench with my feet on the actual ground, as you say, I can do the earth energy draw. Many of us who are along in years or find ourselves in a wheel chair, doing the energy draw this was helps us, too.

    Oh, forgot to add a comment about energy vampires. Often found in stores and restuarants, on buses and subways, they stand close to strangers and actually drain their energy. Most of them don’t realize they are doing it and it’s very difficult to stop especially in a crowded area. Always check your personal energy protection “bubble” when entering a crowded situation and should you feel your energy being “sapped” or “sucked” move away from that area! I’ve been in situations where I felt like a large soda with a bunch of straws in me with everyone around me sucking my energy out! It’s a real “draining” feelings. Love & Blessings

    How true, what you say about energy leeches – I’ve known a few and they are exhausting. There are radiators and drains – people who give or take energy from others.

    I was wondering if there is a way to give/take energy with someone who is not infront of you, say in another state?
