Energy Cannot Be Destroyed – Only Re-Purposed
An Inner-World Exploration
Energy cannot be destroyed, but it can be dismembered, then rearranged, refigured, and reassembled.
That is very powerful knowledge. It means that negative energy can be turned into positive energy. You don’t have to stay stuck, you can simply dismember the negative energy and reassemble into positive energy.
That’s a powerful concept to embrace.
Do not focus on the negative energy
Transformational thinkers all over the world see their contribution to the well-being of the world as personally raising their own vibration so that it affects the collective consciousness. Changing the vibration of our own energy is the cornerstone of all change.
While I work daily to raise my own vibration, I looked for ways to assist in the dissemination of the negative energy that’s so dense, so destructive.
We do dismemberment – reassemble work through intention
There are several ways to create change. Somethings have to be leveled in order to build anew. We have to destroy, remove, clear, clean them out. Then something new can be planted and nurtured in the clear energy that remains.
For our own growth, we need fertile ground that we’ve prepared through our spiritual practice and sometimes we have to clear a space of unwanted thoughts and energy before we can plant and grow something new.
The intentional inner work we are to do is to disassemble the unwanted energy and then use our intention to build up a new form, bringing the energy together in a new harmonious design.
It’s a process and we each have to find our own ways to dismember and reassemble, but I’ve figured out a few ways to begin.
Identify the energy you want to change
You may want to change a negative attitude within yourself, a negative situation you experience in your life, or yes, a negative experience in your world that feels beyond your control.
Choose the focus for your dismemberment.
What is the current purpose of the energy you desire to change?
Even negative energy has a purpose. It may be there to force you to examine your personal values, make a different choice, deepen your conviction, or rearrange your beliefs. Once you have used thoughtful self-awareness to identify what you want to change and why, mindfully begin to change your responses and your actions.
There’s a purpose for whatever situation we find ourselves in. It may be blatantly obvious or patently subtle. We need to be willing to change. We need to be willing to release what’s no longer useful.
What are the messages you are receiving in your life and how will you dismember the negative energy you see around you, then rearrange, refigured, and reassembled it in a positive form?
All healing/change begins within you.
Negative energy is sneaky
Negative energy is insidious. It creeps up on you and gradually takes up more and more space until suddenly you’re pretty much immersed in the negativity. A very important first step is to notice your own energy and the energy that you’ve allowed to surround you in your life.
This negative energy might be as simple as a judgmental thought you have about someone you meet during your day. It might be a feeling of anger at something on the news. The next thing you know you’re sitting there upset and angry and rather full of negative energy. It creeps in and builds up.
Be aware of the negative energy you come across in your day. Be aware of any negative energy that you create in the course of a day. And begin to make changes by 1) being conscious of negative energy and 2) creating a spiritual practice that helps you not just notice the negativity but clear it from your life.
Why that negative energy is there?
What’s the lesson of negative energy? It highlights where your attention is focused and what you expect to be present in our life.
That’s easy to change. Shift your gaze.
Dismember the negative energy in your life
Once you have identified the negative energy you wish to eliminate, thank it for its service, for its lesson. You will see it immediately begins to lessen in strength. Then invite that energy to transform into a happier, lighter form. Keep looking for scraps of negativity in the corners of your life and allow all the negative energy to dissolve and disappear.
Dissolve your personal attachment to the negative energy
Why has this negative energy been important to you? Why did you need it in your life? What did it make you do – or not do? How did it make you feel? Perhaps identifying with the negative energy made you feel right, or part of a group consensus. What are you personally getting out of being attached to or focusing on this negative energy?
Once you identify it, let it go. Then simply walk away.
Create a level playing field
The practice of dismembering in shamanism is to take the energy you are changing completely apart so it no longer exists in the form it was in. Reduce it to “unformed” energy.
Create a level playing field. Simply visualize the dense energy changing. You can feel a wind come through to disperse it. You can see a rainfall come to put wash it away, or a flame to burn it up. You can feel the earth move to cover it up. I like to see negative energy simply becoming lighter, joyfully happy to be lighter. It becomes white light and simply dances off. Dancing formerly-negative energy – ha! Use your imagination to see the negative energy disappear or grow lighter, or…you are dismembering it so that it no longer exists in the negative form.
Begin to reassemble
Reassembling is like having a fresh ball of clay before you that you can make into anything you desire.
What do you want to build with it? How do you want to reassemble it?
Remember, we cannot destroy energy but we can change its form.
Give careful thought to how you want to reassemble the energy before you. It’s not about creating the opposite of what was just there. It’s about moving forward in your thinking to shape that energy into something better than before. Perhaps something not thought of until now.
We cannot see into the future so your request to your helping spirits may be to reassemble that changed energy into the form that’s most useful for you and your evolution. Then simply see what shows up.
Keep flexible. As the energy shifts, you may want to repeat this visualization to clarify your intention in order to continue to lighten and reshape the vibration in a positive form.
Create a ceremony of continued reshaping
Each day, in your spiritual practice, release your connection with any negative energy you see around you. You may simply see the energy gradually grow lighter, or begin to dissipate or drain into the forgiving earth. You may release it in a breath. You may be at the point where you easily see the level field and begin to reassemble, to construct what you need next in a positive form.
Although this will probably be a gradual process, it will be hastened by your focused attention and your intention. Work with this process of disassembling and reassembling energy.
Be aware of what changes
Sometimes change happens simply because we shift our focus. We start focusing on the good that’s happening. Make the act of looking for the positive a part of your daily spiritual practice. Cultivate gratitude and awareness. And encourage a willingness to let go and change.
Change the negative energy as it shows up
Create your own physical act that reminds you to send positive energy toward – whatever you wish. Maybe you blow a breath over the top of your index finger at the negative that you hear or see. Perhaps you hold your palm up to halt it or mentally send a stream of energy from your third eye. Just make up some gesture that reminds you to intuitively send positive energy to a person or situation emanating negative energy.
The power is in the awareness. The power is in noticing the negative energy and sending it positive energy through thought and intention. And it’s about becoming aware of the negative energy and taking steps to shift it in the moment.
Create your own technique to alter the negative energy that comes to your attention.
Keep your own energy positive
Each day in my spiritual practice, I simply sit and vibrate light. I see my light energy moving out into the world to make others aware of the power of their own light. I send my vibration out to heal and comfort and support the planet and all who live here. You, too, can simply sit and radiate your glorious inner light out into the world. Become more aware of your own goodness, your own power to simply gaze upon and thus change the negativity you come across.

Deeper Song Process
- Identify a form of negative energy you want to transform.
- Identify the thoughts, beliefs, reactions that are behind it. See if you can understand its reason for its existence.
- Through your intention and any ceremony you wish to create, begin to disassemble your attachment to the negative, your belief in the negativity, and your fear of the negativity. Cultivate a willingness to have that negative energy disassemble into neutral energy.
- Watch the negative energy begin to shift. Does it change color? Does it grow smaller? Does it melt into the ground? Notice how the energy changes.
- Sit quietly in contemplation at the level playing field you’ve created. The blank slate. The energy is still there, it’s now neutral energy waiting for its new shape. What will you invite it to become?
- Use your imagination and intention to begin to reassemble the energy into a positive form. It doesn’t have to be specific, it can be greater awareness, deeper conscious behavior, a willingness to act for the highest good for all.
- Notice how the world changes with the reassembling of the energy into a positive form.
- Repeat as desired.
