Understand Your Energy

We’ve all had ‘that’ feeling: when our mood suddenly changes, or we sense an ‘atmosphere’ on entering a room. There is a distinct quality that connects these experiences – it’s a shift in how we sense a person or a place, often referred to as a ‘vibe.’ 

Vibes matter because they have the power to change the way we feel and behave.

Garret Yount, PhD, has been researching the science of ‘energy vibes’ for over 20 years. In Why Vibes Matter he explains what can lead us to experience a ‘vibe’ or a shift in energy and how to harness their power.

Looking at where vibes come from and how they affect us, Garret reviews the research and explains the science behind our reactions.

About the Author

Garret Yount, PhD

Garret Yount, PhD, is a molecular neurobiologist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) where his research focuses on laboratory-based models of exceptional human abilities. He obtained his BS from the Department of Molecular & Cell Biology at the Pennsylvania State University and his PhD from the Department of Neurobiology & Behavior at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He began his formal studies in consciousness research with a small grant from the Institute of Noetic Sciences in 1995, which allowed him to work with biofield practitioners and spiritual healers in the laboratory. Since then, Dr. Yount has conducted carefully controlled laboratory experiments with spiritual healers and biofield practitioners from around the world, including China, Brazil, Canada, USA, Japan, India, Russia, Hungary, and Sri Lanka, and was fortunate to be among the first scientists to be awarded a Research Project Grant (R01) from the National Institutes of Health to study energy healing.

Many of us have had the experience of picking up subtle energies from other people—and even placesbut these instances are easy to dismiss as mere inventions of the mind. Not so, according to Dr. Garret Yount in his new book. Dr. Yount aggregates an impressive body of science, from a diverse array of disciplines, to demonstrate that “vibes” truly exist and impact us all. He also provides helpful, practical exercises. The implications are immense not just for everyday living, but for science’s broader understanding of the nature of reality.
