Is It Just a Handshake?


Or an Exchange of Energy?

We know the drill: upon meeting another person, we’ve been instructed to extend our right hand and offer to shake the other person’s right hand, firmly but kindly.

Have you ever wondered why?

It took me years to understand the ‘natural’ energy quadrants of the human body, but I think they’re connected somehow.

We understand negative and positive in almost everything we speak about: up vs. down; in vs. out; right vs. left. But again, why?


Notice how both positive and negative energies initiate on one side and terminate on the other. If you place a human body facing you and superimpose the graph, the energies end up on the right side.

In my own experience of energy work, I have noted that, when sitting in a circle holding hands, energy moves from the right hand of one person to the left hand of the person sitting on their right. When the circuit is complete, the energy comes back around to the first person through their left hand, and the movement of energy starts again. (A bit of “what goes around, comes around again.”)


The handshake is an instant recognition of the energy another person holds in comparison to your own. Sometimes, sparks fly, but mostly just an easy rapport.

I’ve got to hand it to the person who devised this social convention: they must have known what they were doing. I’d like to shake their hand…
