Understanding your self turns out to be the most important understanding you will ever have, as how you understand yourself is at the core of the energy you radiate, and what that energy attracts. However, we’re not taught about ourselves in terms of energy, as it’s only fairly recently that the impact of personal energy has started to become widely discussed in more than vague and metaphysical terms.
However, since the 1980s, there have been a growing number of modalities that examine and treat a person’s energy and the consciousness from which it derives. While the Chinese and Indians have studied energy for thousands of years, the first US-developed modality is generally considered to have been Thought Field Therapy, which blended acupressure with psychology to help people reduce and often eliminate negative feelings and effects from past traumatic events.
In the early 1990s, this was adapted and simplified into a modality called Emotional Freedom Techniques (or “EFT”), which was taught widely by its originator Gary Craig. Because of its effectiveness and ease of use, EFT spread widely internationally and was soon joined by other energy psychology applications including Tapas Acupressure Technique (“TAT”), Matrix Energetics, Access Bars and others. All of these techniques work with the energies of thought and emotion, most of them accessing them through the physical body.
While these approaches are generally somewhat to very effective when used for emotional therapy, the new field of energy coaching is emerging that applies energy psychology for the purpose of personal and even business growth. Before going further, however, it is important to understand the difference between therapy and coaching. The most fundamental difference is that therapy is used to treat a condition that the client and therapist consider to be a problem, and which is interfering with the client’s enjoyment of her/his life. Coaching, however, is based on the premise that the client is whole and complete, and entered into with the intention of personal and/or business growth for the client.
Energy coaching is based on the principle that we create what we experience through our energy, being the expression, in energetic form, of our habitual thoughts and emotions which are rooted more than 95% of the time in the subconscious mind. Energy coaches can use combinations of kinesiology, intuition, and energy flow techniques such as Reiki to identify and transform their clients’ energy into alignment with their conscious intentions to accelerate their experience of those outcomes.
There are even forms of energy coaching, such and life energy coaching and business energy coaching, which can be done remotely, as consciousness (and resulting energy) can be changed by agreed intention between coach and client, either over the phone or even by email exchange. And the applications for energy coaching are only limited by one’s imagination, including improving relationships, financial flow, and emotional well-being.
The only pre-requisite for success with energy coaching is to accept that everyone and everything is energy, always in motion and able to be transformed. Once this is accepted, all circumstances can be changed and molded by conscious intention.
