Need To Gain Energy?

this is an audio post - click to play

"People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents."
– Andrew Carnegie, Industrialist

Emotional Energy

When we are tired, it is hard to communicate. Our thinking cells don’t function and even if we try to continue, the effort and results will be mediocre at best.

It is important to realize that our energy levels are affected by the state of our emotions. And our emotions are a result of our perceptions on our outlook on the events of our lives. (Reread that if needed and let it sink in)

We act in accordance to our beliefs. And our actions can then cause that outcome to manifest.

Author Mira Kirshenbaum, author of THE EMOTIONAL
ENERGY FACTOR wrote about how our emotions dictate
our energy level.

"It is estimated that a whopping 70% of our energy comes from our emotional state of mind as apposed to the food we eat or the exercise that we do."

Our positive emotions of love, joy, excitement, compassion, create energy within us. These are the driving forces that can help us excel in our accomplishments.
They enable us to create and implement more ideas and inspire us to do more.
They attract other successful people to us and radiate potential.

Whereas negative emotions such as anger, hatred, fear, worry anxiety etc.
drain us of our energy. They literately zap and drain us of our abilities to change whatever we do not like. They can stop us in our tracks from moving forward. They leave us with little more energy then to just sit and complain about the world rather than being part of the change. AND, this attracts other complainers with little or no energy.

To increase your emotional energy, you need to look at two things.

1. Know what it is that drains you; (learn to avoid them)
a. Life situations
b. Toxic people
c. Habits of worry, guilt, fear, indecision, envy
d. Unfinished business; whether its cleaning,paper work or clearing the air

2. Know what it is that fills you (and give yourself more)
a. Prayer
b. Meditation
c. Hobbies
d. Walks or reading

If we can use positive emotion energy when thinking about what we do want, we will attract the life we desire. Moreover, we will have the energy to go after it.
So ask yourself, where is my emotional energy, and what is it doing to me?

Power Point of the the New Orleans Hurricane

And What We Need To Do

If anyone wants to understand or see what what happened in
New Orleans, I was sent this powerpoint, showing the storm and
the courageous volunteers.
Right now they are being hit again along with other cities. They have
even put Huston Texas, on alert where many refugees went,
are being evacuated from there.

Right now we need to send them good thoughts of safety
and protection,and not ones of fear and devastation.
Thoughts of the storm dieing down.

****Note this is 3.4 megs. It may be better to download and watch that just straight open.***
Click here for the Powerpoint:
The Great USA


Dr. Joe Vitale has sent an article about the importance
of watching our thoughts. He spoke about how if we believe
we are victums then we are. If we are in fear that the storm
will get us it has.

He states that it is important not to ignore the storm, but not
to getcaught up in fear mongering and with luck, by the time it
hits mainland Texas,it will have dropped to a category 1 hurricane.

He notes that people seem to say and breath victim
That we are victims of
storms
chance
of a poorly run government
of gas prices, gas shortages
inflation, recession, taxes, wars, and now...
the worst of all -- Mother Nature.
He goes on to say
"it may upset some people. I'm hoping it will
inspire you.
Here goes:
You have more power than you think
While you may not want to stand in the path
of Rita, you don't have to cower under the bed
As odd as it may sound, I believe that if enough
of us think positive, we can create a counter
storm of sorts. We can protect ourselves and
our loved ones with our thoughts."

He is not saying to ignore the storm, only not to get
caught up in the fear that the storm warnings often bring.
Happiness is a choice.

Disasters from Mis-Communication

this is an audio post - click to play


Too often, we are only half listening to what people are saying.
This can be because we believe we know what the other person is going to say or because our mind is on something else. Sometimes we think we understood, but don't clairify to find out if infact we did hear it right.

    Other things that cause mis-communication are:

  • Ineffective listening

  • Noise

  • Meaning in words

  • Language

  • Gatekeeping

  • Appearances


Never the less, too often disasters happen because of mis-communication and the lack of clarification. It is up to you to do something about it.

I know about an example when the supervisor, who while heading out for the night, said, "Don, turn off the suds machine" Don thought he heard, "Don't turn off the suds machine", so he shrugged and thought, Ok and walked on. Check out the results of a miss-communciation at an airport hanger.

Which Word Was Right?

this is an audio post - click to play


Some people don't know where they want to go but complain a lot about not getting there. Decide not to be one of them. by Lee L. Jampolsky, Ph.D.

Quite often I have people say to me, "Maria, we could really use help around her with our communication skills, and especially with the email. We have had several people upset due to misunderstandings."

Many people and organizations face this problem because several of the communication elements are left out of message.
You see when we are communicating with another person, the words we use are only 7% of the total sum of the meaning. 38% is tone and 55% is body languages.

One of the reasons that we rely so much on the tone and body is because of the homonyms and synonyms in our language. The words are easily misunderstood when reading them alone.
Some examples are:

  • The farm was used to produce, produce

  • He could lead, if he could get the lead out

  • Upon seeing the tear in the painting, I shed a tear

  • The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert

  • The bandage was wound around the wound

  • Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present

Intentions, What are Yours?

When engaged in communication with another person, we
must be aware of our intentions, with the message that we
want to get across.

Are you trying to inform, coercion, manipulate,
inspire, persuade, or control?

To be effective, it is important to know and realize what we
are trying to accomplish before we begin. Sometimes people
are not aware of what their intentions are.

They believe that they are trying to persuade, when in fact
what they are doing is manipulating and forcing control over
the other person. When we do that, we all lose out in the end.
People will be cautious about interacting with you in the future,
which leads to communication breakdown.

Do you ever stop to think about what your intensions are
before speaking?

Have you ever felt that someone was trying to coerce or
manipulate you into agreeing? And how did that make you feel?

These important questions can help you to figure out what
your intentions are and ask yourself, 'Is there a better
way to do this?'
