Emotions Are Energy

The word “emotion” is derived from the Greek term “emotere”, which translates to “energy in motion”. Emotional energy is usually neutral by itself. It transports a wide spectrum of feelings and moves energy throughout our bodies. Several studies have now proven that emotions have measurable energy that affects both our mind and body. In fact, research conducted by the late David Hawkins, MD, Ph.D. reveals that emotional energy can negate or foster cell life.

In his book Power vs. Force, Dr. Hawkins shows how our log level (measurable energy level in their magnetic field) varies based on our positive and negative emotions. Moreover, negative feelings like humiliation, regret, hate, shame, and anxiety can bring the log level below 200. It was found that at this level “cells actually died”.
