THE FIVE DOMINIONS OF ENERGY

The ancient masters observed that Qi can be divided into five manifestations of matter and energy: mineral, plant, animal, human, and divine. Each form draws on the energy of the next, resonating and interacting with the divine through the form's relationship in Wuji (infinite space). The five manifestations of matter and energy are explained as follows. 1. The mineral's energetic field is considered the densest (i.e., the slowest) or lowest form of energetic vibration. The disintegration or division of the mineral's particles combine with the elements of air and water to form the Earth's soil. Every particle in the soil still retains the original primordial energy force of the mineral, which interacts with the energy of the divine. 2. The plant's energetic field is considered the next higher form of energetic vibration. All of

the Earth's vegetation (trees, bushes, flowers, herbs, etc.) absorbs a part of its life-energy from the mineral's energetic field, increasing and multiplying its energetic potential. The plant's energetic field is considered the next higher step in energetic evolution towards the divine energetic field. 3. The animal's energetic field is considered the next higher form of energetic vibration. The animal consumes and absorbs the energy from the plant's energetic field, further increasing and multiplying its energetic potential, bringing it one step closer towards the divine energetic field. Within each higher frequency of vibration there is also an increase in consciousness and level of awareness. 4. The human energetic field is considered the next highest form of energetic vibration. Mankind stands between Heaven and Earth, partaking of both energy fields. Through diet, Qigong practice, prayer, and meditation, humans can further refine and multiply their energetic potential. 5. The divine energetic field is the highest vibrational expression of energy known. As it envelops and becomes active within the human body, it further increases and multiplies the body's energetic potential, allowing man to attain divine consciousness. All these energetic fields originate from one source, and all contain the vibrations of the one divine life-force. Likewise, with an attitude of deep respect for plants and animals that give up their life-force energy for our consumption, it is possible to enhance the nutritional value of the substances they provide us with. The blessing of food, and food prepared with a loving attitude, allows for the absorption of not only the vitamins and minerals contained therein, but also the absorption of the higher vibrations of the one divine energy inherent in all things. This is why many ancient cultures, often referred to as "primitive," prayed before hunting so that the animal spirit would willing give itself for sacrifice. Prayers were also given after the kill to free the animal's spirit so that it could return back to the divine.
