To answer this question, we must firstly define the term consciousness which is something philosophers throughout the ages have had difficulty doing. Understanding the essential properties of consciousness raises a number of questions such as; can consciousness be explained mechanically? Whether non-human, like animals, experience consciousness at all and whether it may ever be possible for machines like robots to develop a consciousness.
Have you ever questioned your core-self because someone placed a seed of doubt in your mind? All it takes is one negative comment and who we are as an individual can quickly unravel. Personally, I have had this happen many times in my life and even recently. I am a very energetic, positive, happy and caring person and I love being ‘high vibration’, it’s who I am. Yet, on many occasions, I have been ridiculed and put down for being who I am. I have been told: “You’re such a cheerleader”, “How can you always be so happy, it’s unrealistic”, “Are you on drugs”, "Only children are this happy", and other negative comments. These deeply hurt because all I want is to be happy and for others to be happy around me, bring each other up and want the best for each other no matter what. Sometimes it's hard to stay positive and upbeat when my positivity is attacked and challenged. There always seems to be one or two people that look down upon my core-self and will do and say anything to make me question and doubt myself.
Human beings aren’t the only beings with energetic bodies. Animals, plants, trees, and even the planet also have an energetic field or body.
Our physical bodies are designed to be nourished by the Earth and all it’s incredible food sources, while our energetic bodies are designed to work with the energy of the planet which, if we allow, can balance and revitalize us.
