New Solutions for change, personal growth & achieving goals
Imagine that deep within you is an unlimited ability to create, an almost magical power to heal, a strong intuitive potential, and an enormous capacity for joy and profound peace. What would it feel like to be in touch with these wonderful internal riches?
The truth is that, deep within each of us, we are dynamic, creative and powerful beings. However, we need to learn how to tap into our true nature and its gifts. We need a roadmap and a bit of guidance and support. With this article we starta series that will provide information and methods that can begin you on an exctingjourney toward developing your natural, innate abilities.
This journey begins with a willingness to consider a shift in how you see yourself and the world. Quantum Physics has now validated the age-old wisdom that people and everything in the universe – from dense material objects to light, airy ideas and dreams to intense emotions of despair and love – are made-up of energy. Indeed, your very consciousness is energy! This means that you are literally in touch with everything and everyonein your world through your energy field.
Everyone’s energy field is unique and constantly changing depending on a variety of factors, including our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs of the moment. The energy patterns we create, moreover, bring about physiological changes and, in a profound and fascinating way, determine our perceptions, as well as influence what comes into our lives. We can fully engage in this process by becoming conscious of how to work with it in a positive manner.
Learning how to manage your energy will help you:
- Align yourself with positive outcomes
- Free yourself from unnecessary conditions that have held you back
- Release “unconscious” negative images, feelings or beliefs that help pattern energy in stressful ways
As a result, you will start to:
- Experience more vitality
- Enjoy life rather than merely tolerate it, or feel you are struggling through each day
- Feel more in charge of your life – and be more in charge
- Develop more ease, pleasure, health and peace of mind
- Increase your creativity
- Feel more of your natural state of “wholeness”
- Become more intuitive
- Interface more effectively with others’ energy
- Get in touch with – and have the courage to be – who you really are
- Bring JOY to your life
The first step to transforming any part of your life with energy is understanding what it is and how to work with it. Next, it is not necessary to believe in the process to achieve results, but it is helpful to at least adopt an open, experimental attitude. Finally, it is helpful to actively develop your natural ability to sense energy and acquire skills to manage it so that you can make the changes you desire.
With this in mind, we will begin our discussion with general theory about what “subtle energy” is and then move to specifics of the human energy system, its structure and its functions. From there, we’ll talk about the skills necessary to begin to sense and connect with your energy. Finally, we will focus on how to build your vitality and minimize its depletion.
If you find that you cannot relate to some of the information right away, do not worry. Practice what you can, what seems to draw you. Everyone grows in their own way. One of the exciting benefits of this type of ‘work’ is that you will actually come to know yourself better through allowing your own natural instincts to guide you.
We encourage you to practice what you learn on a regular basis, ideally incorporatingit into your daily routine. Just like anything else, the more you practice, the faster you will progress.
Please keep in mind that, like other self-help techniques, intentional energy management is powerful and needs to be done with care and respect. A well-informed, balanced, respectful approach, combined with a desire to grow in a positive direction, will guide the process quite well. However, there may be circumstances that arise as you work with unblocking and re-channeling your energies when the assistance of a teacher or mentor to guide you would be helpful. There are a variety of practitioners who have integrated this type of knowledge into their healing work and are able to provide appropriate assistance. Use your feelings about who is appropriate for you at your stage of interest and development.
In closing for now we want to say that learning to use energy does not mean that your life will be perfect. We all face challenges every day. It does mean that you will have more self-mastery, be more “in charge” and have more of what you do want in life. Whatever challenges remain, you will be better able to manage, resolve and move beyond them. So, keep an open mind, relax, and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
May the Force Be With You!
As it turns out, the reality of a force that you would be fortunate to have with you may be more literal than most of us realized when those words were first uttered on the big screen!
It often seems that science fiction writers, poets and mystics articulate concepts that are later proven out by science. Could it be that the success of books and movies containing these ‘messages from the future’ in some way speaks to our intuitive awareness that these ideas are true?
It is interesting to note how often science later corroborates what has been spoken of in these venues. Case in point; the revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory and biology are overturning centuries old models and providing us with startling evidence to support the notion of the universe as a vast network of energy of which we are a part.
Although this energy is normally difficult to detect without instrumentation it does flow through us and around us, connecting us all to each other. It is also the ‘stuff’ of consciousness! Our bodies, thoughts, feelings, beliefs, hopes, dreams and goals are all varying frequencies of energy. So it seems that to understand the force, this energy, and how it operates is a means of understanding ourselves in the most profound way. It may in fact be the single most powerful way of knowing ourselves and it may also provide some very positive and effective means of proceeding on our journey through evolution.
No longer can we view ourselves as biochemical units powered by nerves, muscles and organ systems. Cutting edge physicists tell us that the physical nature of matter is lost at the subatomic level. According to these scientists, all life is comprised of pulsating waves and particles that coalesce into form. This fluctuation energy has intelligence appears to participate in the encoding of our experience AND is responsive to our attention and intention. So it does seem that the statement “change your energy, change your life” has truth to it!
Implications of Energy Awareness
Of course all this challenges everything that many have believed about the world and how it works. It has enormous ramifications for how we see our capabilities and ourselves in every area of our lives. It is all good news so far however. Consider healthcare, at least two forms of hands on energy healing, Reiki and Therapeutic Touch have been integrated into many hospital settings with excellent results. There is also movement within the Psychotherapeutic community to blend techniques from Energy Psychology into traditional practices. The results so far have been astonishingly successful in many cases.
Perhaps the most exciting prospect of all is that we now have a highly effective way to tap into the vastness of human potential. This path is not an unknown one although it may be new to us in the west. Eastern medicine and spiritual disciplines have taught the principles and practices of energy management for centuries. A great deal of this information was kept secret and only made available to those in positions of power and affluence. Now we all have the opportunity to learn and benefit from what was once the privilege of only the elite, the mystics and their initiates.
Feng Shui provides a good example of how information that was once secret has now emerged into the mainstream. Feng Shui was an oral tradition that took years of apprenticeship to learn. Over the past twenty five to thirty years this knowledge has been disseminated in the mainstream for widespread use.
As the new science continues to evolve, it is bringing the concept of a higher, collective, unified consciousness into reality. This field connects us all and we all have access to it. It is the realm of healing, intuition, creativity and spiritual unfoldment. We each have more power than we realized. We all have the ability to heal and improve our lives using energy skills. It seems to logically follow that as we innately possess these abilities then it is incumbent on each of us to learn to use it responsibly not only or our own benefit but for the world at large. As each one of us grows, learns, heals and raises our consciousness, we bring new light and energy to each other and the world at large.
You are already experiencing energy
This shift in awareness may seem awesome to consider but it need not be a difficult transition, In fact, we are already managing our energy. However, because we do not have adequate information or understanding of the process, we are not necessarily getting the maximum benefit from it or deriving the results we desire.
Each of us can access energy as well as use it to find our answers within. It is a matter of tuning into ourselves -our bodies, our minds, our spirits and our environment to identify the clues and patterns that will enable us to lead our lives in the best possible way.
Look around you and truly notice as much as you can. What happens in your daily life? Is it the same pattern day after day? Do you love it? Do you want to change it? If so, what would you like to be different? Begin to focus on the images and feelings of your ideal life and spend time visualizing it everyday.
Bringing your attention and intention to your goals enlivens them, infuses them with energy and helps move waves of possibility into the particles of probability and reality.
We will be offering more tools and information in order that you can understand and engage the power of your mind and energy and apply it to the areas of your life where you seek change. For now focus on expanding your self observation skills, list your goals, and envision them as complete and already in existence for a short time (ten minutes)each day. Above all, have fun and enjoy yourself within this process!
