I’ve tried to keep the information thus far relevant to the process of construct creation itself so the reader can get to the actual construct making as quickly as possible. With that out of the way, we can get a little more in-depth.
The energy we’ve been working with thus far is usually termed psi energy, and it comes from the energetic body itself. The ambient energy we gather from crowded places is largely composed of psi energy cast off by human beings. What we interact with physically, we interact with energetically, and we leave energy behind wherever we’ve been. I’m sure we’ve all heard the example of walking into a room shortly after an argument has taken place and felt the emotional energy left behind. There is some contention about whether emotional energy is a type in and of itself, or whether it is simply psi energy that has been patterned with the emotions of the people who generated it. The general consensus is that the latter is true, and it’s an example of unintentional programming being left behind in a room’s ambient energy.
I’ll stick with types and sources that can easily be used to power constructs, and leave the rest for your own experimentation.
Most short-term constructs are powered by the practitioner himself. If you look for it, you should find a link, which looks a bit like an energetic hose, between the construct and yourself. It’s not a good idea to power too many constructs from yourself, which is why we use other sources. If you power up a construct initially, but don’t give it another power source, be sure to specify that it not draw power from you. That way it will simply cease to exist once it uses up its energy.
In his book, The Power of Intention, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer describes air as possibly the best example of something that appears to be infinite. Where does the air in one room end and the air in the next room begin? Where does the air in your house end, and the air of your yard begin? The defining lines that make up areas of your house don’t apply to air, which flows freely throughout. Unless you’ve installed an air-lock, anyway. Like the air in Dyer’s description, energy, in varying densities, is virtually everywhere. Though it is easiest to draw ambient energy from a place with a heavy human, animal or plant population, there is no such thing as an energetic vacuum (as far as I’m aware, and certainly not naturally occurring) on Earth. No matter where you go, you will find energy.
It is worth bearing in mind that your construct may not find sufficient energy in a given area. It must not only gain energy from its immediate environment, but from a distance also. The pull of energy must be constant, rather than drawing it only when the batteries are low, so to speak. By doing it this way the construct is always at full power, and there is time to remedy the situation if it for some reason cannot access its usual source of energy. It also means that there will be a constant, slow tug as opposed to a sudden, massive drain.
Originally suggested as an explanation for the straight lines intersecting archaeological sites, ley lines have come to mean something slightly different in energetic practise. To the psionics student, ley lines are paths of energy criscrossing the Earth. The energy contained in ley lines is different to the psi energy we have utilised thus far. As with ambient energy, you should not internalise it, but feed it directly into your construct. To use a ley line, you need to find one. Traditionally, ley lines were dowsed for, using divining rods or a pendulum. The easiest way to find one for our purposes is to enter your meditative state, then view the landscape around you energetically. You are seeking what looks like a long, thick stream of energy. You can draw energy directly from the line, but to power a construct long-term, you’ll need a way to connect the construct to the ley using a link. Creating one is simplicity itself; just create a hose construct between the ley and your construct. If you find that one ley line is not enough, you can use multiple ley lines for a single construct. Don’t bother using multiple links to the same ley, however, as the effect is not the same. When you first create the hose, ensure that it is closed at one end, opening it only once it is attached to the construct. Unlike ambient energy, there is no need for the construc to draw in the energy. It comes from the ley line at force, like water from a hose. Pay attention to your construct when you open the hose, and see the difference the ley line’s power makes.
The sun is a much greater source of power than ley lines. You use it in much the same way, by creating a link between power source and construct. As with the ley, the energy comes at force.
