Wellness Tool of the Week: Energy Therapy

In the twentieth century, science and technology finally advanced to be able to prove what indigenous cultures have known for thousands of years: All things are made of energy. Humans, as energetic beings, are constituted of energy fields that combine to manifest the physical body, the mental and emotional bodies, and other domains that are less obvious to our five physical senses.

Disruption to the human energy field is a precursor to illness, dysfunction and adversity. Energy therapy may address physical health, emotional trauma, self-rejecting beliefs, karmic influences and other conditions related to energy blocks and distortions.

Energy therapy augments the natural healing abilities innate to all living beings. The energy therapist serves as an open channel to ever-present healing forces, augmenting those energies with the power of conscious intention for the client to heal, learn and thrive. Healing can take place without conscious action or knowledge by the client. All that is required of the client is a willingness to release the trauma, lie or blockage; and accept a higher state of grace.

Through energy therapy, clients may experience conscious reconnection with what matters most in life. Emotional blocks may lessen or dissolve and existing negative patterns may come to conscious awareness, to be deliberately altered. Recognizing that only Spirit can heal; the therapist’s role is to partner with the client to support healing and growth in the moment.

Each session is unique and client specific, as the energy therapist responds to intuitive guidance throughout the session. Energy therapy may entail a hands-on process onsite, or may be experienced “long distance.” Location does not impact the effectiveness of energetic therapy, as the quality of energetic connection does not attenuate with distance.

Energy therapy is not a religious activity and invokes no religious references.

Wellness Tool of the Week: Systems Work

The tendency of many managers and leaders is to blame certain individuals for failures in business. In reality, 90% of the results are created by SYSTEMS, not the people who work in them.* According to Dictionary.com, system is defined as, “a procedure or process for obtaining an objective.” In the workplace, a system is the structured or unstructured steps taken to accomplish a task. A related Systems Principle is, approximately 50% of systems is structural (how we do things) and 50% of systems is people (how we feel about things).* In other words, the success of an operation is half determined by the efficiency and appropriateness of the procedure; and half determined by the emotional commitment of the people involved.

The natural propensity of humans is to want to do a job well. How successfully an individual or group performs is controlled almost entirely by the systems that support the people. Examples of some common systems in the workplace include:

  1. Hiring Systems that put the right person in the right position
  2. Communications Systems that encourage collaboration and innovation
  3. Supervisory Systems that teach and empower
  4. Operational Systems that optimize the productivity of people, machines, facilities and materials

SystemsWork is a fun, inclusive and easily-learned method for systems improvement. By applying a popular systems principle – 20% of the variables creates 80% of the results* – dramatic improvements in productivity and employee satisfaction can occur with well-targeted efforts aimed at the critical shortcomings in a system.

Coaching Consulting Psychotherapy

…is a relationship of client- empowerment where clients become better at their jobs and their relationships.
…provides perspective and wisdom to address stale, stuck or unfamiliar issues.
…is a means to unlock and implement solutions that already exist in the mind of the client.
…raises awareness and control in relationships, events and circumstances.

…entails the hiring of an expert in a particular field to advise, coordinate and perform to improve a targeted business function (such as sales, public relations, accounting, business planning, etc.).
…provides outsourced expertise for business improvement only, exclusive of interpersonal and leadership skills development.

…is defined as “the treatment of mental and emotional disorders, with the goal being relief of symptoms and changes in behavior leading to improved social and vocational functioning, and personality growth.” (Dictionary.com)
…may be an effective way of learning how your thoughts and behaviors impact your relationships and mental health.
…is not a means to optimize both personal wellbeing andprofessional performance.

If you aren’t sure if coaching can help, look for these symptoms in your organization or your job:

  • Outdated business strategies and practices
  • Conflict among key stakeholders
  • Life is consumed by work
  • Lack of initiative and creativity in the organization
  • Focus on past performance (“the good ole’ days”) and consumed by negative headlines
  • Fear-driven decision-making
  • Resistance to leadership and company procedures
  • Uncooperative team members who hoard information and other resources

Why business and life coaching?
Every circumstance and relationship is a mirror that drives learning and awareness. In business, the influence of a leader’s character, expectations and behavior is the main determinant of company culture and long-term success. Beyond the workplace, a person’s life experience is determined by similar factors: beliefs, expectations and actions. In this work, there is an explicit connection between business problem-solving and personal growth.
