Our ‘human energy’*, the energy we transmit through our thoughts, choices and actions is the only permanent energy resource we have. It is also the only energy source that on which we as individuals have 100% influence.
The impact of our energies on a daily basis is immense and nothing we do, say or think is without a consequence – positive or negative, our choice. Yes, you heard me right – awareness of our energies can give us a competitive advantage and a way to influence not only ourselves but also the world around us.
Today I visited a hospital for a routine check. The positive attitude of the doctors, their willingness to explain what happened through the actual examination, and their deep felt wish to make me feel comfortable throughout my stay was exceptional. The whole time I felt safe and cared for. Also did their personal questions make me share about my work, my passion and life mission. A routine check for breast cancer, could have been associated with my fearful and negative emotions and the experiences with my grandmother and mother’s history of breast cancer if I had been met with a negative or less caring attitude at the hospital visit. Leaving the room, declared healthy and well, I heard one of the doctors saying: ‘what an great person’. I was inspired by their wonderful ways and so were they. A mutual build of positive energy where I initially was low in energies due to nervousness. We truly can change lives with a positive energy.
Obviously, if we are stressed, unaware of our own energies we never feel what drains us and what strengthen us, what creates results and what creates barriers. And we do create our own pitfalls – take all conflicts in the world I would be able to tell you how it was built and how to resolve it – of course depending on the willingness of the parties to cooperate.
Working with clients on performance (Energistic Leadership & Impact Performance™) I see great results daily. An example in the corporate world is when we create results in sales way beyond expectation by creating awareness on how to mange own energies, the energies in strategy, relations and in our complete stakeholder chain and those tools are indispensible once known to you.
Once you become aware and become capable of managing your energies you also become aware of the ripple effect of the energy you transmit and your responsibility to create a positive impact, not only in your own surroundings but in the world you live in. Acting ethical, with integrity and making wise long term decisions become the most natural thing in the world – and a positive side effect is that it all comes back to you.
Energistic Leadership™ that I have developed and shared for more than 6 years now – teaches you how to mange your energy in your life, business, and organization creating a ripple effect of positive change. In my book ‘The Treasure: How to change the world’ you get some cases, examples and tools.
It is my passion to share the message on the importance of awareness and taking responsibility for our energies – because we can change the world, doing what we do best while making a positive impact in our own life, in our organizations and in the world.
Below you hear an example from the medical arena building awareness on how positive energies affect healing. Oprah talks with Dr Jill Taylor about hospitals should preserve energy instead of taking it. “Take Responsibility for Your Energy – Super Soul Sunday – Oprah Winfrey Network” – Click on the picture to see the short film:
I encourage you to start preserving and build the best possible energies – for yourself and for the world we live in.
Best of Energies,
Christel Rosenkilde Christensen
