Gabby’s coach says she hasn’t reach her full potential yet. Can you imagine that? The 4’11” gymnast who is the First (1st) African American to ever reach this goal, the young talent who beat out two Russians hasn’t peaked yet?
Wow! According to him, she hasn’t awakened to her ultimate potential and shown her true essence in gymnastics.
She still has energy to be developed and controlled.
Have you been trying to reach your potential? Aiming to live at the cause of your life, instead of the effects? You know, those efforts where you are attempting to make changes happen in your life but seem to end up taking two steps backwards instead?
Unfortunately, I know a little too much about this. Living below my potential. One of my most important relationships involved me constantly trying to fix problems. I read books, invested money and time in working with professionals in couple therapy and alone, went to targeted conferences and places of learning.
Nothing got resolved until I came to one truth. I am created in the image and likeness of God and the only way I can realize that truth is if I owned myself.
The reality that I can only change me became crystal clear and with this unfolding awareness came the knowing that I have a right to my self and my life.
It was disheartening to say the least, to realize that in order to be my best self and become whole again, I would have to issue the boundary of distance and end that relationship.
However, I knew this absolutely had to be done as the presence of that individual in my life was affecting EVERYTHING about me and the people I cared about.
What was curious to me, the inquisitive thinker that I am, was…how did I get to become a victim in this relationship? That’s so not me at all.
Well I’m not going to go into the details of how that occurred here, I am going to highlight what it is that holds you victim to some circumstance or situation in your life.
Energy… yep you heard me right. Catabolic and Anabolic energy to be exact.
Everything you think or feel resonates at a frequency which is making the energy around you resonate at the same frequency.
Your thoughts, emotions and actions emit a movement that either establishes a frequency that harmonizes or dis-harmonizes. When they harmonize you are flowing Anabolic energy. When they dis-harmonize you are flowing Catabolic energy.
This energy runs through you like electricity runs through a circuit. You self direct this energy by your perceptions, the meaning that you give to things and this forms into patterns of beliefs that run behind the surface and control 90%-96% of your day.
That’s some power that you need to get a hold of.
Just like electricity becomes attractive, this energy attracts those situations, people and experiences that match it.
But that’s not all. You are Energy (Light) and are created to have anabolic energy flowing through you predominantly and rare occasions of catabolic occurring.
When you have too much catabolic, you are putting power into areas of your life where you probably don’t want to and are blocking the good things you do want from arriving in your life.
The only way to cure this it to take OWNERSHIP of your life. To RECOVER yourself.
This doesn’t have to take a long time either. You can shift the direction of your life in an instant!
When you start to excavate your unique blocked energy, your life begins to shift, automatically. This I know from experience.
You can feel your patterns at your heart level and can pull them up and transmute (shift) that energy.
Here’s a key: PLEASURE
Tolerance to pleasure will be a significant key in you digging up those patterns and taking your power out of those areas you no longer want to be creating from and putting that power into what you want to create.
Owning your CHOICE is another key. You create your life by each choice you make. Choosing how you perceive. How you give meaning to things determines the type of energy you flow through you.
Bruce D Schneider, author of Energy Leadership, explains it this way, “Based on the way that you perceive yourself, you exhibit or embody a certain level or type of energy. The level that you operate at most often is your default tendency, which determines what you “put out there” and also, what’s reflected back to you. Based on what you think and feel about yourself and the people around you, you create your world.”
My problem was, I couldn’t get my mind right when I was connected to this person. They used the cloak of confusion to protect themselves from being seen and needed to keep me off balance so energy they required for living could easily be taken from me.
They had no intention on being in a harmonious relationship.They wouldn’t align themselves or as we Christians put it, humble themselves under the mighty hand of God so I either could stay and continue to disintegrate or leave and find peace (wholeness).
I had been changing how I perceived this whole situation and as my thoughts changed, my emotions changed and I found the power to take actions in my best interest.
This energy shifting business is for real!
Now, I can look back and my heart is filled with mercy…another anabolic shift caused because I changed how I look at the past relationship and the meaning I give to it.
Whether your are a gymnast who has won an Olympic Medal or an ordinary person who awakening to the truth that you can be more than what you are being. You can change your life. You recover yourself and reach your potential.
