Energy Awareness for Decision Making

There’s an interesting study by Antonio Damasio for our energy training, it was done with the Iowa gambling task:

In this study, participants are presented with 4 decks of cards. They are told that each deck holds cards that will either reward or penalize them, using game money.

The goal of the game is to win as much money as possible.

The decks differ from each other in the balance of reward versus penalty cards. Thus, some decks are “bad decks”, and other decks are “good decks”, because some decks will tend to reward the player more often than other decks.

Obviously, the participants don’t know that when they begin the game.

Most healthy participants sample cards from each deck, and after about 40 or 50 selections are fairly good at sticking to the good decks.

However… the measurement of galvanic skin response shows that healthy participants show a “stress” reaction to hovering over the bad decks after only 10 trials, long before conscious sensation that the decks are bad.

In other words, there’s an unconscious bodily and energetic reaction to what we know it’s bad far earlier than when we first consciously acknowledge it.

This study not only confirms the “gut feelings” we usually have, but also the importance of energy awareness.

Although I’ve never done this experiment, I would make an educated guess that someone with energy sensitivity and awareness would start to avoid the bad decks much earlier, since he or she would be much more in tune with his body.

Hence, energy awareness will often help you make the right decisions and avoid the wrong ones.

Inner Power and Stoicism

Here’s an interesting question from a student:

“If I have inner power will I become stoic?”

I would differentiate the word stoic from what this student really meant, which is being cold, withdrawn and resigned to your fate.

Without going into too many philosophical details, Stoicism as a philosophy that can be quite close to inner power. It avoids clinging to pleasures (but not avoiding them altogether), lessen the fear of loss, overcoming anger and being overpowered by “passions”.

Most of them are principles of inner power, even if the methods to get there are different.

So, there’s an important difference between inner power and being cold.

You don’t need (or even want to) to be emotionally dead. Or to be alone forever in a hermit type of cave to avoid the earthly pleasures.

Inner power is a lot different than this “cold” approach.

I love sex as much as the next person. The same way, I also often enjoy good food and drinks.

But there’s a difference between being able to enjoy them and being addicted to them or let the search for whatever pleasure to run your life.

This understanding is a part of inner power.

So fortunately, neither of us need to live as an outcast of society and avoid life’s pleasures. There’s no need to be a celibate monk.

You do need:

– To be able to control your mind, emotions and body.

– To differentiate your emotions, beliefs and thoughts from your true self.

– To be able to face and overcome your fears

– To be true to yourself and others.

Developing Different Types of Charisma

Here’s an interesting question from a student:

“Is it possible to train oneself to develop 2-3 different kinds of charisma? If so, what will happen to your charisma?”

While an appealing result, it doesn’t work out quite like that.

It’s mostly a matter of levels or intensity.

For example, let’s take two different celebrities and their magnetism: the Dalai Lama for spiritual energy and Marilyn Monroe for sexual magnetism.

For example, let’s say the Dalai Lama now wanted to develop sexual energy.

He could train it if he wanted, but eventually, one or the other type of energy would dominate. While he could become a lot more sexual, his spiritual side would be much less.

The opposite would also happen to Marilyn Monroe.

Let’s say at some moment of her life she decided to convert to a religion and become a nun. If she really trained her mind and energy, her sexual magnetism would be reduced and her spiritual magnetism would increase.

In other words, you can’t be the Dalai Lama and Marilyn Monroe at the same time. As appealing as it may be to master everything, there’s usually one type of magnetism that will dominate.

But you can be a Marilyn Monroe with a bit of Dalai Lama in her or vice-versa. So you can be a sexually magnetic spiritual guru, if you so desire. Just remember there’s usually one energy that dominates your magnetism.

As you train and understand energies, you’ll be able to develop and train what you need for any given time. In one period of your life you can have a more personal magnetism, a leadership type of energy, while the next year you can choose a more sexual magnetism.

Once you understand energy – and especially having trained them in you – then you can activate them in a period of time.

Be warned that it does take time. While it may be easier to activate a particular energy at a given moment (let’s say on a date or a particular public speaking situation), the change of your whole energy in a more permanent basis is hard work.

If you are beginner in this type of energy and magnetic training, I recommend focusing mainly on one type of energy and one type of magnetism.

Less confusion, easier training and faster progress.
