“Everything is energy” is a common expression most of us are familiar with. Now, a scientific study offers insights that takes our understanding one step further.
Researchers from the University of Bielefeld, Germany, demonstrated that plants can absorb energy from other plants. This research was conducted in algae, particularly in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.
It was unearthed that in addition to its primary source of cultivating energy — photosynthesis — they also have another method, which is that they can share their energy with one another.
German biologist Olaf Kruse was in charge of the research, and its findings were reported on Nature.com.
This inspired Olivia Bader-Lee, a physician and therapist, to research the topic further and what she discovered was incredible.
The science that studies the behavior of energy in living things is known as Bioenergetics.
According to Bader-Lee, our bodies are like sponges that absorb the energy around us;
“This is exactly why there are people who feel uncomfortable when they are in a certain group with a mixture of energy and emotions The human body is very similar to a plant that sucks, absorbs the energy needed to feed your emotional state, and can energize the cells and increase the amount of cortisol and catabolize, feed the cells depending on the emotional need.”
Many of us have always known this intuitively, but hearing it explained in scientific terminology makes it more real and understandable.
Bader-Lee believes that over the centuries human kind have lost their connection with nature that allowed them to enjoy the benefits of being naturally rejuvenated by its energy and presence.
These days people who speak about energy and spirituality are often criticized by the mainstream scientific community because it cannot be measured by man’s limited scientific observation and technology, but for millenia gurus and ancient traditions have known about this very well, and many of us have experienced it first hand. Not it seems it is finally being validated scientifically, which is great.
With this understanding, I think it’s time for all of us to make the decision to start spending more time in Nature and reconnecting with this majestic Earth.
