We are carbon base beings, living in the carbon cycle here on Earth. Our bodies are good conductors of energy. Good conductors are copper, aluminum, platinum, gold, silver, water and animals.
Nature can be used to conduct energy also. Crystals, wood, and just about anything from nature can be used as a tool. To conduct energies, the materials actually does it on its own but slowly with some force.
A person must focus and channel the energy via thought. Thoughts are energy, intent. The mind can consecrate the object to raise the vibration or conductivity of electron flow.
