Notice how babies gravitate toward some people and not others? It doesn’t mean that person is good or bad. It’s how they feel about their energy.

Mother’s Day I was very ill. I had allergy and asthma symptoms for weeks that continued to worsen. When I arrived at my daughter and son-in-laws home, I sunk into their couch.

Normally my grandsons are all over me. They know how much I love them and are eager to eat that up. To my surprise and disappointment, they didn’t come to me. They didn’t even recognize me. It was as if my energy was so different, so diminished, they didn’t know it was Nana.

Actually, when I looked in the mirror, I didn’t recognize myself. I appeared decades older, grayer. That evening I went to urgent care and learned I had pneumonia in both lungs.

As adults, perhaps in a less obvious way, we also are aware of other peoples’ energy, especially if it is unusual. Sometimes we are surprised if we instantly feel an attraction or dislike toward someone. Most likely, we are reacting to their personal energy.

I’m not certain, but have heard that cats leave the room of a dying person, even one they love. That change of energy either disturbs them or they feel the person they knew is no longer there.

Dogs are the opposite. Our favorite family dog, Lois Lane, is in town. She spent the past few weeks close to me. She snuggles, often with a paw or her face on my leg. When I am in a coughing fit, Lois stares at me, alert and ready to assist. If an outsider comes near me, she gently nudges between us.

Quantum physics says that atoms are force-fields emitting waves of electrical energy. Since we consist of atoms, and all of them are continuously emitting and absorbing light and energy, our energy field changes depending on our circumstances. That’s why we feel agitated, drained, excited, or happy when we are in certain places or with certain people.

My recovery will take a good amount of time, but I need to build my energy level as quickly as possible so the little guys will again feel comfortable with me. I need to submerge myself in a restful, peaceful environment to heal and rejuvenate. And I’m going to do that. I want my Nana energy back.
