Principles of Huna: Principle 3 Makia – Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

Attention goes where energy flows; Everything is energy

You get what you focus on

In the last principle I spoke of all things being connected and the ability you have of communicating with them. All things means just that. Anything from your inner being to the sun, stars, weather, plants and your pets, including your pet rock (if you still have one). How is this dialogue undertaken? By the properties of the third principle, namely energy and focus.

Energy flow. Just as a conduit harnesses electricity and allows it to flow in a particular direction, so your thoughts are harnessed and directed by your ability to focus. We have all heard the term “tuned in”, which is a way of saying that we are focused on an event, feeling, or phenomenon in our lives. The longer we stay focused on that sensation, the stronger the feeling we receive from it and about it. Thus it is said that energy flows where attention goes. Wherever we focus our attention, energy follows.

This helps us tremendously when we meditate, which, in any of its forms, is sustained focus. Here we find the body relaxed and ready for understanding or direction to change. Problems seem to be resolved easier and connections to other people, places or things become stronger and require less effort. Energy flows more freely and we manifest things more quickly. That’s being “tuned in.”

Attention flows where energy goes. Then BANG! Right in the middle of your quiet meditative state you hear an explosion outside your window. You are immediately jolted back into your skin (sometimes quite shocking if you’ve been away for a while), jump up and see what happened. Your attention was suddenly drawn to where the energy was flowing. Since the energy of the bang was stronger than the energy of your quiet meditation, you were drawn to it. The energy could just as easily been the smell of a favorite pie, raindrops falling on your head, or a bright light shining in your eyes. All are energies that affect the senses and, depending on the intensity, will have small or great effects on your body and/or behavior. You, too, have probably been one of these attention-getters by your own influence of energy on your environment.

Everything is energy. I spoke earlier about everything being made of the same stuff. It is nothing new to mystics, shamans, or modern day physicists. It is the movement of the energy that is important to realize. You create your reality by your energy patterns, and through focus and intent can manifest either what you want or what you don’t want in your life. The energy is neutral. It goes where you direct it, thus you “get what you focus on.” What would you like to bring into your world today?
