You and I have both physical bodies and spiritual bodies.
To maintain our physical body, we intake food, drink and rest for nourishment. To maintain our spiritual body, we read, practice yoga, get massages, watch children play, go to the beach, connect with Spirit or otherwise, find ways to rejuvenate our souls.
We feed both our physical body and our spiritual body to maintain an energy state to where we are not only living, but hopefully, thriving.
But once we cross over, and lose our physical bodies, we are released into only operating in a Spiritual body.
And in order to operate as a fully interactive and functional Spiritual being, those in Spirit, need to find a way to maintain a certain level of energy. In basic sciences, when you expend energy by doing a large amount of work or simply running a motor on low, to balance the system, energy output, must be replaced by energy input.
When we run a marathon on a Tuesday, we spend all Wednesday resting, recuperating and drinking water - gaining energy. Those in Spirit, when they expend energy, by gathering all their loose molecules to appear, speak or communicate with a human, they need to replenish it - in order to keep operating.
Not all of those in Spirit access the same replenishing energy source, just as all of us, as humans within Spiritual bodies, have vastly different ways as to how we rejuvenate the soul.
In general there are two main categories of those in Spirit.
Light Spirits and Non-Light Spirits
Light Spirits and Non-Light Spirits are defined, largely, by where they source their energy reserves and replenishment from.
Light Spirits are those in Spiritual Body who exist in the Divine Light, who have fully crossed over and have access to the Universal Source Energy, which is where they source their energy. They include Spirit Guides, Angels, and crossed over deceased Loved Ones. These individuals are connected to an infinite energy source, as they are no longer limited by a physical world container.
If you think about it, in a human body, we are limited to a specific container and pattern in which energy can come in and be accessed, and be released and let go of. Once that container is released, and our shells are lifted, we are free to gain access from any molecule of energy, floating around in the vast Universe. In this way, I often think of the human body as a plasma globe, or a glass ball of lightning rods, which you might see at a children’s science museum. Once the glass is shattered, the energy is free to connect with all other electrons, molecules, and waves from an unlimited number of surrounding sources. Once we are free of physical body, and cross over into the Light our Energy is free to connect interact and unite, limitless, with all that which is around us.
Rather than drawing on any particular individual source, those free in energy, draw on that which is all around us. This is known as the Divine Light and we all have access to it.
Light Spirits are not limited by any of the boundaries of the physical world or the level of energy they can access. They can often travel vast distances no problem, transcend physical world barriers and connect with humans still on earth, flawlessly and easily, due to the ease at which they receive energy - by harnessing the all of that which is around them.
The other group of Spirits are known as Non-Light Spirits and these are individuals who do not have access to the free floating energy that is all around us. They do not draw upon the Divine Light, and are, by choice, cut off from this Spiritual Energy supply flow. Non Light Spirits, are usually individuals who, once human, did not access Divine Light while living, for any number of reasons - perhaps they chose to not honor their soul path, continually shut down and turned off the spark of their inner Light, or didn’t pursue stoking the fire of their internal Spirit while living - these Spirits, exist now without access to free flowing energy, Divine Light. Without access to their own Spiritual Light, perhaps from never learning how to access it, these Spirits, now without physical body, have to receive their energy from individual, local and finite sources of Energy.
Their access to limited, finite sources of energy usually means that Non-Light Spirits, including deceased people who have not crossed over and any Spirit individual not operating in the highest and greatest good of all, have a more limited amount of power, unless they can find a lot of it - somewhere.
So, Non-Light Spirits tend to gravitate towards sources of intense, high amounts of energy.
And these are:
1. Spirits in physical body (humans) who nearby and are not secure with their personal boundaries and not paying attention to Spiritual influences or draws on their own energy. Without careful boundaries and vigilance, non-Light Spirits may find you to be an attractive free-loading source.
2. Spirits in physical body (humans) who give off lots and lots of emotional energy (fear) in the presence of a Spirit. Releasing a great deal of fearful or scared emotions (emotions are energy) in the presence of a Spirit is a beneficial energy source for those who are in need of energy.
3. Places with lots of built up residual energy from the presence of Spirits in physical body (humans), such as crowded train stations, bus stops, hospitals, office buildings, workplaces, university centers. Residual energy is sometimes also known as ‘energy lost’ to the surrounding space when energy is transferred between two sources in a typical physics work equation.
4. Electronics. Sometimes, Non-Light Spirits (and occasionally, Light Spirits) will connect with Electrical energy to source their own such as entertainment centers, lights, computers and television. However, using electronic energy is also an attention-getting trick for crossed over Loved Ones (Light Spirits), who wish to get your attention. It’s not exclusive to Non-Light Spirits.
Those in Spirit get their energy from a variety of sources. Depending on the group of Spirit, the source may come from the unlimited supply that we all have access to - the Divine Light - or a pinpointed source specific supply, which is both limited and often, a draw on the resources of others.
