Science Confirms That People Absorb Energy From Others


Often people wonder ‘why do I absorb other people’s energy?’ Scientifically, it is an undeniable fact that people absorb energy from others. “Everything is energy” is one of the main axioms of science. No human being is an exception to the rule of energy transformation. 

Have you ever sensed negative vibes when talking to a stranger? Did you ever feel that the person you are talking to is going to harm you? Or did it ever happen to you that you felt re-energized interacting with an unknown person? This is called energy transmission and read on to know how absorbing energy from others works.

How do people absorb energy from others?

A biological research team at Bielefeld University made a mind-blowing discovery about plants absorbing alternate sources of energy from other plants. The team conducted an interesting study at the University of Bielefeld, Germany, and Olivia Bader-Lee, a physician and therapist, followed the results of this investigation.

The study of the behavior of energy in living beings is called bioenergetics. 

German biologist Olaf Kruse conducted this research on algae. She studied energy behavior specifically in alga species – Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Besides, absorbing energy from photosynthesis this algae also absorbed energy from other algae and plants around it.

Whenever there is a shortage of energy, these single-cell plants absorbed energy from neighboring vegetable cellulose. It secreted cellulose enzyme to digest and break cellulose into small sugar components and transform it into a source of energy. This energy transformation process helps Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to grow even in difficult situations.

“This is the first time that such a behavior has been confirmed in a vegetable organism,” says Professor Kruse. “That algae can digest cellulose contradicts every previous textbook. To a certain extent, what we are seeing is plants eating plants.”

According to Bader-Lee, our bodies act like sponges soaking energy from our surroundings. Just like plants human body also sucks energy that is needed to feed our emotional state. 

“The human organism is very much like a plant, it draws needed energy to feed emotional states and this can essentially energize cells or cause increases in cortisol and catabolize cells depending on the emotional trigger”, said Bader-Lee.

It may be due to this energy transfer mechanism, that we feel happy or sad, nervous, optimistic, anxious, or uncomfortable when we are in a certain group with a mixture of energy and emotions.

The field of bioenergy is now ever-evolving and the findings of the study could also have a huge impact on the future of bioenergy. And in the long run, these studies may provide evidence to show that people draw energy from others in much the same way. Earlier energy metaphysicians also believed that humans can heal each other simply through energy transfer just as plants do.

Bader-Lee also explains that what we call “supernatural” is nothing more than a manifestation of different energies in the world. Decades ago scientists were ignoring everything related to the supernatural out of fear of criticism and rejection by the scientific community.

But, few chose to research this subject and conformed that energy transformation occurs in both plants and humans. Spirits and paranormal experiences are all different expressions of energy.

Spending time with nature feels so good! Isn’t it? Do you know it is because of the exchange of energies? Bader-Lee says, unfortunately, people are losing connection with nature.

“Human can absorb and heal through other humans, animals, and any part of nature. That’s why being around nature is often uplifting and energizing for so many people,” she concluded. 

Why not make more of this power of absorbing energy from others?

Living in a highly urbanized society and always surrounded by digital tools and gadgets, we tend to seek all sorts of pleasures from materialistic things. Connecting with nature can bring us enormous benefits!

Criticizing the analogous concept for humans

According to “”, the well-known website for debunking myths and rumors, it is a false claim that humans may absorb energy from others in the same way as Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. The algae only consume the physical organic matter of other plants, but not some unseen, untapped metaphysical form of energy. Therefore, the analogous concept for humans would be cannibalism.
