Creative Energy Crisis:

Losing Your Life Force

The most precious thing we have is our life force energy.

Without that nothing else happens. Relating to people is difficult. Working and staying focused is difficult. We don’t think clearly.

The loss of enough life energy even changes our personalities. Intense emotions such as love or even anger are unaffordable expenses when we’re depleted.

So how does that happen? How does someone’s life force energy get so depleted?

These are important questions that I will tackle over the course of numerous articles. For now though, I think I should share why I’m raising this issue in the first place. Here goes…

The Loss Of Life Force Energy

For years, like many, I explored New Age philosophies, practiced meditation and yoga, attended spiritual & religious services, read a bunch of self help books, went to support groups and 12-step programs and experimented with diets and holistic therapies.

At the same time, as I was exploring these alternative healing modalities, I was in and out of psycho-therapy and took a series of medical tests. I was trying everything.

I felt exhausted and mentally fuddled much of the time. I’d have extreme highs and lows of energy and emotion, but I didn’t fit the medical definition of bi-polar or manic depressive. I was physically healthy and young. Under 30.

Will I Wake Up?

On the outside I looked pretty normal. On the inside though, I was steeped in self loathing. I was energetically empty, as if a huge chunk of my spirit or soul had been ruthlessly hacked and stolen.

Frankly, there was a period of several years or so, in my early to mid-30s where I felt near death much of the time. In fact, I can still remember some nights as I fell asleep asking myself this, I wonder if I’ll wake up tomorrow?

I’d grown up an athlete. I’d been instilled with good eating habits, work ethic and sense of responsibility.

We didn’t have a lot growing up, but we had dreams and opportunity.

By the time I was 30, I should have been much farther along in life. Yet, I was struggling in every way possible. I didn’t understand it. I mostly blamed myself yet, couldn’t identify anything I’d done really wrong.

Finally, I realized something was really, really wrong and… it wasn’t my fault.


I know there are many people out there right now who feel the same way. It’s part of why I’m telling my story and will continue to write a series of articles on this. If you recognize yourself in my above scenario you may have some serious damage or sickness in your energy system.

This would be damage unconnected to any physical or mental illness that someone may have. I was technically healthy in a physical sense and not mentally ill. Not by any medical definition anyway and I felt terrible almost all the time.

I want to share my experience because I’m long past this stage, but I didn’t heal over night and certainly not by myself and definitely not through any medical means.

First In A Series…

This article is the first in a series of articles that document the crisis of energy I had and that many people have. Maybe even you.

If you look around, the depletion of our life force has become a crisis in our modern lives and is a seriously misdiagnosed condition. Most doctors have no idea what is going on when someone comes in who tests positively physically and mentally yet has no energy.

What the medical profession often doesn’t understand is that many problems are energetic in origin not physical or even mental. I’m talking about a crisis of life force energy that happens when your energy body, your aura or energy field if you will, is damaged.

Not unlike an accident or physical illness. The energy body can become damaged or infected like a the physical body. Therapy and Prozac are useless in the face of a depleted life force. If you or someone you know fits this description please contact me for more info. I may be able to point you in the right direction for healing.

Below is a youtube video feature one of my favorite spiritual teachers… he’s up there with Eckhart Tolle and the Dalai Lama.. his name is Jaggi Vasudev, but goes by the name ‘Sadhguru’ – meaning: uneducated guru. Don’t let his name fool you… this man is deeply wise and highly intelligent. Here he talks about ‘prana’ which roughly translates to ‘life force energy.’
