Summary: Chances are, you’ve heard the phrase “everything is energy.” But what does it mean, and how can you use it? Discover more with insights from Jeffrey Allen.


Chances are, you’ve heard the phrase, “Everything is energy.” But what does it mean exactly? 

The thing is, not only is there an energy world beyond the world of matter, but the world of matter itself is actually made of energy. And the same way you can intervene in this world with your physical presence, you can also do so with your energy. 

Energy always happens first, and then the physical world happens second,” according to Jeffrey Allen, a renowned energy healer and trainer of Mindvalley’s Duality Quest. And it’s when you learn how to harness it that things start to manifest for you.

What Does “Everything Is Energy” Mean?

The idea that “everything is energy” is based on a principle rooted deeply in physics and philosophy that everything around us is made up of energy at its core. It suggests a deep connection between all things—everything and everyone, at the fundamental level, are all united through energy.

This includes things like:

  • Thoughts: Though intangible, they are a manifestation of energy taking place in the neural networks of our brains.
  • Feelings: Similarly to thoughts, our emotions are expressions of biochemical processes fueled by energy.
  • Matter: Everything around us, living or not, is made from tiny particles called atoms and molecules. These particles are always moving slightly, showing that even solid objects contain vibrational energy.
  • Light: Visible or not, light is a form of energy we interact with daily, illuminating our world and facilitating sight.
  • Sound: Produced through vibrations, sound waves are a form of mechanical energy that travels through a medium, be it air, water, or solids.
  • Electricity: A type of energy that powers our homes, devices, and, increasingly, our vehicles, fostering modern convenience and technological advancements.
  • Heat: This flow of energy can be felt and measured, originating from various sources, including the sun, and governing the temperature of our surroundings.

Everything is energy” means realizing that all of life is connected through a shared life force. And the truth is, everything and everyone has a valuable role to play.

“Everything Is Energy” Quote

The famous phrase stems from this quote:

Everything is energy, and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”

Albert Einstein quote about everything is energy

Many people think this quote came from Albert Einstein. It sounds like something he might say, right? 

However, there isn’t any proof that he ever said or wrote those exact words. Despite this, the idea behind the quote is kind of linked to Einstein’s theory of special relativity, where he showed that mass and energy are interchangeable, hinting at the interconnectedness of everything.

The true source of the quote is Darryl Anka, a special effects artist who brought it to light in 1998. He mentioned receiving this insight not through scientific research but from an alien entity named “Bashar,” communicated through “trans-dimensional channeling.”

And while “Everything is energy” isn’t Einstein’s energy quote (or any other scientist, for that matter), it brings to life a concept rooted in actual scientific discoveries, albeit interpreted through a new age lens. It gives people a positive way to see the world, hinting that we can shape our own reality with the right energy.

The Science Behind “Everything Is Energy”

The saying “everything is energy” is grounded in fundamental principles of physics and can be understood through a couple of essential scientific concepts:

  • Quantum Mechanics: At the core of this concept lies the field of quantum mechanics, which studies the smallest particles in the universe—particles that make up atoms, which in turn make up everything around us. In quantum mechanics, particles exhibit both particle and wave-like properties, meaning they are expressions of energy.
  • Einstein’s Theory of Relativity: His famous equation E=mc2 demonstrates the interchangeability of mass and energy. According to this theory, energy and mass are two forms of the same thing and can be converted into each other. Hence, all matter contains energy.
  • Law of Vibration: This law states that everything in the universe vibrates at a specific frequency. Every atom, particle, and molecule is in a constant state of vibration, thus showcasing a form of energy.
  • Thermodynamics: The first law of thermodynamics, also known as the Law of Energy Conservation, states that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only transferred or converted from one form to another. It reinforces the notion that energy is a fundamental and conserved property of the universe.

So, when someone says “everything is energy,” they are referring to the idea that all things, even objects that seem solid and still, are made from energy. This concept is supported by science, which shows that at the very basic level, everything is moving and vibrating, full of energy.

How to Use Energetic Resonance to Attract What You Want

Energetic resonance is about using the Law of Resonance to your advantage. This law says that your internal frequencies—your thoughts and emotions—attract things that are on the same “wavelength.” It’s a way to steer the positive and negative energy toward or away from your life.

In other words, understanding and using energetic resonance can help you use more of your potential and get more out of life. Here’s how you can use it:

  • Define your desires. Narrow down what you want to achieve, identifying your energy type to focus your efforts effectively.
  • Raise your vibration. Engage in activities that enhance positive thoughts and diminish negative energy.
  • Visualize success. Regularly envision your goals as realized, fostering a positive mindset.
  • Affirmations. Create and recite positive phrases to reinforce your confidence in achieving your goals.
  • Practice mindfulness. Be present and aware of your emotions and thought processes, maintaining a healthy mental state.
  • Positive environment. Cultivate relationships and surroundings that foster positivity, encouraging beneficial energies.
  • Trust the process. Believe in the universe to fulfill your desires at the right time, avoiding undue stress over controlling outcomes.
  • Active participation. While energy healing is essential, taking practical steps toward your goals is imperative.
  • Patience is a virtue. Recognize that utilizing energetic resonance is a gradual process that requires persistent effort.
  • Reflect and adjust. Routinely assess your strategies, being open to any necessary adjustments for success.

Starting to use energetic resonance can be a big step, especially if it’s new to you. Being open to learning and growing can help you avoid low vibrations and use more of your abilities.

Unlock Your Brilliance Within

While “everything is energy,” it’s also important to remember that energy is everything. Because in a life where your energy is often put into trivial matters, where you focus your life force and how you use it matters.

“Duality is all about understanding that we live in a dual world,” says Jeffrey. Indeed, acknowledging and comprehending the energy our world is made of is essential for gaining a deeper understanding of it and our experiences within it. 

In the words of Sarah Begum, a student of Jeffrey’s Duality Quest on Mindvalley: “I was curious to see if I could master my energy body since I started discovering my “spiritual powers” but couldn’t understand how to manage it. The tools I learned from Jeffrey Allen and Duality have helped me enormously, as now I have energy flowing through my hands that I can use to heal. I wake up every morning feeling like I have superpowers”.
