You know how people give energy and positive and negative people put energy out and you absorb it... as in if you spend time with positive people you absorb it and become positive and negative works in the opposite way too? You with me? Well I find it real hard to sleep in hotels as they are full of energy... leftover energy (The excitement of holidays, the stresses of work) it is all restless energy... Why are theatres always haunted? You think there are like ghosts everywhere? How many people have actually died in theatre's? I believe it again is energy... actors have loads of energy they fuel it into becoming their character (again leftover energy) enough energy to move stuff around even... Imagine if we actually knew how to channel our energy? I haven't quite figured out all the in's and out's when I do I will get back to you but for now just keep being positive! X
