Typically when Christians look for the concept of vital energy in the Bible they land on the idea of the “breath of life” in the Genesis account. Most of the time when the Old Testament speaks of the “breath of life” it uses the Hebrew word “Ruwach.” Pronounced “Roo-ahk,” it means “spirit” or “breath.” As spirit, it is used to denote the Spirit of God in the Old Testament and occasionally the spirit of a person or even an evil spirit. Another possibility for where the Bible references “energy” is in the Hebrew word “Chay” (pronounced “Kai”.) It means “alive,” “life,” or “living.” It is often used in conjunction with the Ruwach scriptures where it uses the phrase “the breath of life.” Ruwach is the “breath” and Chay is the “life.” It commonly represents the idea of a whole life or lifespan, i.e., “the six hundredth year of Noah’s life” (Genesis 7:11) Each of these terms have their Greek counterparts in the New Testament such as the term “Pneuma.”
However, the Circuitry + Intention of Energy Psychology is not altering one’s life force per se. We believe that John 1 speaks more directly to what is happening in Energy Psychology. The Apostle John explains to his audience that the Logos (typically translated “Word” but also accurately translated “active will / intention of God”) sustains all things. Johns’ audience was familiar with the term “Logos.” While culturally, it referred to a universal life force or cosmic animating principle, the Apostle John, teaching much like Paul in Athens (Acts 27:24-27), is saying in effect, “What you think is an impersonal force, I introduce to you as the person of Jesus.” It is Jesus as our LifeSource who animates all things by his constant will. Whether it be the original “Big Bang” generating all creation, or the ever present buzzing of the sub atomic particles in every cell of our bodies, it is God who activates and energizes all of life and matter in creation.
Quantum physics shows us that our attention also affects those particles. One of the many mysterious properties of the quantum level is that sub-atomic particles cannot be observed objectivity. As soon as we look at them, our observation changes their structure from matter to light waves. The quantum level gives us some insight into the mechanism behind what we know intuitively and spiritually; our thoughts as humans, created in the image of our Creator, also affect reality, just as our natural words and declarations have supernatural affect and impact. God has built partnership into humanity and Jesus has given us as believers His authority. Every word we speak, every thought we think, every emotion we feel contributes to the quantum field around us. When we employ “Circuitry + Intention” we are just doing it on purpose to bring healing and transformation. It is merely a shared property of God’s own creativity, and we are so grateful for the myriad of ways He has given us to heal.
