Working with Energy

Working with Energy
In both presenting and training, one major difference in the way
we work with groups is the way we use energy. Working with
energy is a powerful way to change what happens within groups,
and because you have greater awareness, you can be more flexible
in what you do, and have more fun!
Every living creature has an energy field, which varies in intensity
over time, but is always present to some degree. You can measure
it with scientific instruments, and with Kirlian photography you
can show that the state someone is in influences the energy field
around them.
Have you ever met someone, and thought, “This person has a
good energy. It feels great to be in their company”. Or, alterna-
tively, “Hey, what’s with this person? I don’t feel comfortable
around them”. Maybe you avoided them for no apparent reason,
even though you didn’t know them. Have you ever gone into a
room and had the feeling, “Something happened here before I
came in”? It is as though you have picked up some ‘bad vibes’, or
sensed an ‘atmosphere’, because people had been arguing or
fighting there. Alternatively you may have entered a room and
sensed a feeling of well-being, relief, relaxation, or ‘coming home’.
Immediately your state changed, and you felt uplifted.
These types of experiences are the effects of your energy field
interacting with other people’s energy fields, and of the qualities
of the energy that has been created in that place. Whenever a
group comes together it generates its own ‘group energy field’.
Generally speaking most people aren’t consciously aware of the
energy emanating from others or from a particular physical space.
Yet, unconsciously, you pick it up. One reason your mood or your
state changes is because you are now interacting with other peo-
ple’s energy. Presenting Magically
Controlling energy
This chapter is about exploring the energy you have in your own
body, and the energy you put out, which affects other people. You
will learn how to control your energy, the energy in the space
around you, and the energy within the group to whom you are
presenting.
So if you are already aware that you can instantly pick up the
energy in a room, and that when people enter an energy field their
mood changes, then what if you could set up the energy in the
room the way you wanted it? What if you could customise the
energy, the kind of feeling in the room, that would be most con-
ducive to what you want to do there? For example, if you’re
having a sales presentation, or presenting some new business
ideas, then what if you could set up the energy in the room for a
state of curiosity, interest, or excitement, say, so that as soon as
someone comes in they begin to feel curious, interested, or
excited, even before you start your presentation? For a personal
growth or self-development training, exploring group processes,
you could establish an energy that produces a feeling of safety,
transformation and change. Immediately people walk through the
door, their mood begins to alter: they feel safe, and begin to
change and transform themselves, simply because the energy in
the room is in harmony with the results you want to create with
those people. That would that be useful, wouldn’t it?
Using energy means you are working on an almost invisible level
with the people in your particular group. Using all of your train-
ing and presentation skills, you will learn to control the level of
energy at the same time. And you will be able to do it whether or
not the people in your group know this consciously. They may be
aware at one level, perhaps just noticing a certain atmosphere in
the room, or that the atmosphere has changed.
Looking after your own energy
It is essential to maintain your own level of energy. Once you
know how to use this way of working with energy with others,
you can also use it for yourself. When you have plenty of energy
you can avoid those situations you probably had in the past
where your energy ran low, you started tiring, and thinking:
Energy
“I don’t have enough energy to do any more.”
“I would be able to do a better job if I had more energy.”
Many people have experienced this. What you are doing doesn’t
have to be physically strenuous. It could be dealing with other
people, or anything demanding your attention or keeping you
thinking. If you are a trainer or a presenter it might be:
“I’ve been presenting all day, and I’m exhausted.”
“I’ve been training for five hours, and I am now flagging a little.”
“It’s been one thing after another, and I’m whacked!”
Other sources of energy
We’re going to teach you how to maintain your energy level, so
that when you are presenting in front of an audience, instead of
using up your own energy, you can use the energy that is natu-
rally all around you to keep going all day. Then, at the end of the
day, rather than feeling tired, you’ll feel as though you have more
energy than when you started. It means that when you get home
you’ll have energy for doing other things, rather than collapsing
in a chair, sighing, “Phew! I’m wiped out”.
Energy work exercises
The next three exercises provide direct experience of using energy,
so that you will know more about how to work with the energy
systems in your body. We also want to teach you about focusing
your attention, because where you focus your attention has a dra-
matic effect on both the energy in your body, and your physical
balance.
These exercises demonstrate that where you put your mental
attention actually changes your physical body. They are examples
of the mind-body connection. We firmly believe that the mind and
the body are intimately connected, that they act as a system, and
that one way into that system is through what you are paying
attention to.
Do these exercises with a partner to explore how this mind-body connec-
tion works. Read through all the instruction and study the photographs
first, so that you will be able to safely do the same thing with your partner.
