Psychological work focuses more on what has gone wrong: how we have been wounded in our relations with others and how to go about addressing that. Spiritual work focuses more on what is intrinsically right: how we have infinite resources at the core of our nature that we can cultivate in order to live more expansively. If psychological work thins the clouds, spiritual work invokes the sun. – John WelwoodYes! And… what happens after that? After all, just standing in the sun is satisfying for only so long. What if you could grab that energy and do something with it? Would you know how to direct your light in service of your vision and dreams? If you learn how to shape the energy that flows naturally within and around you, your life can take the creative shapes you desire.
What Is Energy Shaping?Energy Shaping is a practice that involves setting clear intentions, discerning next steps, and moving forward while working with this unseen web of energy. Whether you know it or not, the energy you bring into a room, the tone of your voice, and the way you interact with yourself (your inner dialog) and with others shapes the energy around you. You can maximize your impact when you do this consciously and intentionally. To shape energy well, we must maintain our center as we move through the events of our day – whether the events we’re shaping are challenging professional conversations, strategic team meetings, or movie outings with family.
Step into an arena with a horse and see…
- How leading from ‘what is intrinsically right’ with you connects you to your center and your power,
- How to maintain that center effectively while working with the energy around you (and that of a 1500-pound four-legged friend),
- How to consciously co-create while also maintaining a strong sense of self, and
- How to continue to shape energy once it begins moving in the desired direction by reading feedback from the environment, staying grounded in self, and discerning next right steps.
