What is energy?

Want us to call you?
* indicates required field

According to Wikipedia the definition is:

“a scalar physical quantity, an attribute of objects and systems that is conserved in nature.

In physics textbooks energy is often defined as the ability to do work or to generate heat.”

*”Conserved in nature” would also mean conserved in the universe. Nature is part of the universe.

Is the universe then made up of different energies?

Science shows us that everything is made up of energy and exchanges that with everything else at all times in a most complex way. It is the building block of all matter. The same energy that composes your flesh is the same one that composes the bricks of your house and the trees outside. It is all the same. It is constantly at flow, changing form all the time. This is a very simple explanation of a rather complex thing.

Everything in this universe is made up of the same stuff. It is just present in different forms and shapes.

The human body and cells

Our bodies have an electrical nature. If you shuffle your feet across a carpet and then touch something made of metal you get a small shock of electricity. Also, if you step on a piece of glass you will feel the pain immediately because it is electrically transmitted along the nerves to your brain. In our heart we have “electrical circuits”and we can measure the electrical activity by using a electrocardiograph (EKG).

The human body is made of tissue and organs and the tissue and organs are made up of trillions (millions of millions) of cells. No-one knows for sure how many there are. Each of these cells in our body contain a smaller substructures called organelles (“Little organs”), each of which performs a different task related to the purpose and function of the cell.

Blood cells have a different task than skin-cells which have a different task than the brain cells and so on, but they are all necessary to make the body work. In the anatomy of the cells we find many “little organs” like the Cell Membrane , the Nucleus, Cytoplasm, the Endoplasmic Reticulum, the Golgi bodies, the Mitochondrion to mention a few.


The Mitochondria are the “engine” of the cell. They are sausage shaped organelles that are the power sources for the cell. Mitochondria are sometimes described as “cellular power plants” because they generate most of the cell’s supply of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), used as a source of chemical-energy.

So our human body is filled with cells containing energy. In addition each cell are made up of molecules and these molecules are made up of atoms with protons, neutrons and electrons. What are the atoms made of? Sub-atomic particles. And these sub-atomic particles are pure energy. Hence our body is one big piece of energy and so is everything else in this great universe.

Everything is energy

If we go below this level – to a subatomic level – scientists have shown us through quantum physics that everything at this level is pure energy. Hence humans are pure energy. Everything in this universe is made up of energy including ourselves. From a spiritual viewpoint we are deathless souls within a physical body – a particle of the Divine, of the Creator, The Source – God.

In our life any problem occurs as a result of imbalance energy in our life .Any mental or physical problems occurs when there is a disturbance in energy level of our body . Positive or negative energy is nothing but frequency of vibrating energy .

As you listen to the radio you have to tune it to the right frequency if you don’t.
