What is Your Energy?
What is Your Energy?
We all have a unique energetic signature.
We use the word ‘energy’ to mean a lot of different things. Energy can be your sense of motivation. Energy can be what cooks your food. The life force energy that exists within all of us is something that we can use to heal ourselves and others, through a variety of energy healing techniques.
Energy is also the unique vibe you put out into the world.
Energy is the feeling people get when they are around you.
It’s interesting that other people may feel and recognize your energy more than you do. Often, we don’t realize that people see us as loving, or competent, or funny, or warm or playful. We can’t always tell how others feel when they are around us.
We are all a conglomeration of energies and attributes, and each of us has a unique energy signature.
Can we control our energy? To some extent, yes. If we work to be peaceful, we will exude that energy of peace. If we work to be efficient, we will put out vibes that let others know that we can get the job done quickly and well.
Our social energy is part of the equation, too. Are you an introvert, extrovert, or somewhere in between?
The Myers-Briggs personality types can be seen, in a way, as a description of the energy we cultivate.
Aura photography is a way to visually see what our energy field looks like.
If we pay attention to sensing the energy of others around us, we get a better sense of how to feel energy, and how it affects us. This can make it easier to sense our own energy.
In meditation, we can slow down and focus in order to feel the energy around us, and settle in to an understanding of what we feel like to others.
Sometimes we feel naturally drawn to people simply because we like their energy. Sometimes we feel repelled by people for the same reason.
To become familiar with your energy is a good way to learn to know yourself and love yourself.
To cultivate the energy that you want to express to the world is a good way to embrace personal healing and growth.
Perhaps the energy we put into the world is a window into our soul; that part of us that existed before we were born, and that will continue to exist when we die. Perhaps our energy is the expression of that sacred part of us that is eternal.

How to Read Energy with Tarot
When you want to know about a person, or about yourself, you can simply ask the cards, “Who is this person?” or “Who am I?” or “Who is Sam?”
Pull a few cards and look for the story you see there. What energies do you see in these cards? What type of experiences have shaped this person? How is this person feeling?
All of these things add up together to give you a read on the person’s energy.
So often we talk about people being ‘good’ or ‘bad’. It’s much more helpful to discover a person’s energy, which melds many factors into something you can recognize and understand.
When you look at the cards, try to fill in the blanks on these sentences.
I am a person who…
My priorities are….
I care about…
Obviously, if you are looking at someone else, replace the word ‘I’ with their name.
When we use the cards in the exploration of personal energy, we become better able to know ourselves and others.
When we think of each tarot card as expressing an energy, we develop a new tool for reading tarot.

Tarot is a book of spiritual wisdom in picture form. With it, we are able to learn about ourselves, communicate with others and understand our world.
The sixteen Court cards of the tarot, that is, the Kings, Queens, Knights, Pages, are some of the most versatile cards in the deck. The Court cards can help us understand ourselves, our talents, our fears, and our motivations.
In this class you will learn a variety of ways to interpret these cards when they appear and find all the possible messages within them.
Bring a tarot deck or borrow a deck at class. Class fee is $35, payable to True Bikram Yoga.
I hope to see you there!
The Week in Review
This week I shared some ideas for etiquette when participating in free reading livestreams on social media.
Remember that I do my Three-Card Weekly Reading on my Facebook business page every Monday. If you miss it live you can catch it in archive.
From Around the Web
Tarot historian Sherryl E. Smith, from the Tarot Heritage website, happened to catch an episode of Global Tarot Circle. She was impressed with my reading style, designed an exercise around it and share it on her blog. The blog title is “Speed Reading the Tarot with Christiana Gaudet”.
From Yoga Journal, here is a guide to energy healing.
I was surprised to find this article on energy healing in Psychology Today!
Cards for Your Consideration
The Ace of Wands is the perfect card to consider when we talk about chi life force energy. Wands, also known as Rods, Staves and Batons, is the suit typically associated with the element of Fire. Fire is our passion, our creativity and our energy.
Aces are the number One, and are associated with new beginnings, source and essence. Therefore, we can see the Ace of Wands as the essence and source of Fire, which is our life energy.
Typically, the Ace of Wands can describe a new creative project, or a new feeling of enthusiasm.
In many tarot decks, included the one pictured here, the Smith-Waite Centennial, the Wands are shown sprouting new life. It’s interesting that, through associated with Fire, they are not shown burning, but rather, sprouting.
That’s because the energy of the Ace of Wands, and the suit of Wands, is not about destruction. Rather, it’s about the life force that is growing and blooming within us all.
