In our past blog, I mentioned that a transparent glass floor is never a good idea. Even if one understands that it is structurally sound and therefore not a safety issue, many people would still avoid walking on a glass floor. The question I asked was; why is this so?
Several people have tried to interpret it from a yin-yang prospective. However, this is actually an energy issue. We project our energy through our eyes. When we look at an object, our energy stops right there. So keeping this in mind, let’s see how it relates to a glass floor. When we walk on wood floor, as it is within our peripheral vision, we are subconsciously aware of the solid floor and at the same time our body, energy and mind all stop there. On the other hand, when we walk on a glass floor, our energy and mind move beyond the glass floor, and naturally our body has the desire to move there too. However, the body is not able to move there and stops at the floor. At which point, the body, energy and mind are all not in unison, creating an unsettled feeling.
This brings up another question. So, what happens when we look at something and does it affect our energy? Firstly, many are often unaware that we are naturally projecting energy when we see something. This is why we feel uncomfortable when someone is staring at us. It feels like we are being pushed by a force. Secondly, when we anchor our mind on something in our line of vision, we create a mental and physical stability. There is an easy test to see how this works. Try to stand on one foot. Most people will be able to keep their balance for a while. Now, this time try to stand on one foot with your eyes closed. You will find that it is very difficult to maintain the same physical balance. Why is this so? It’s not that your foot has less strength. It’s because when your eyes are closed there is only one point ,your standing foot, to hold your balance. On the other hand, with your eyes open, you are able to project energy and anchor your vision, creating an additional point of reference to keep your body stable. Two points of energy are easier to hold a balance than one point.
Now with this information be aware on how we use and waste our energy.
