Trust the Energy

Trust the Energy

I’m back here in my office after a summer of travel. I’m so excited that I will be recording a whole new series of videos based on what I learned. I will be covering business-oriented topics and stories from my world, where I have had to trust the energy to shift the field. 

 

For those of you who are transformational leaders, you know what I mean. It’s time for Transforming Out Loud Season once again!

 

Last week, I hosted a retreat with a small group of clients who are graduates of our programs, who came to practice their magic and trust the energy. 

 

The retreat’s theme was Trust the Energy or Energy Dynamics, and we had lots of opportunities to practice. That’s what makes retreats so amazing. When you come together live, you really get to have the experience and the immediate feedback of your perception of energy. 

 

That’s the kind of stuff we do, especially at a high level on our retreats. We go deep, quickly, and we create a safe container. We’re able to experience things and see how other people experienced the same things to get a sense and validate the energy in your body. 

That’s what makes retreats so amazing. When you come together live, you really get to have the experience and the immediate feedback of your perception of energy. 

I had an experience this summer where I became obsessed with trust. All I could think about was, can I trust? Can I trust again? Will I be able to trust this person, this situation, etc. 

 

One of the best decisions I ever made, and continue to make over and over again, is to work with coaches who understand the dynamics of energy. They aren’t just speaking to the head and the circumstances but understanding the dynamics of energy. 

 

My coach said to me, ‘what if you never had to worry about trust? What if you never had to worry about trusting someone again? 

 

I said, ‘okay, say more? 

 

She continued, ‘What if your job wasn’t to figure out if you could trust someone, a person, or a situation, but rather trust the universe, and trust, the energy and how it feels in your body? 

 

I  sat with that and thought, ‘Well, of course, I trust the universe. That’s kind of what I do. But I was being invited to trust the universe at a deeper level. It was like I was trusting the universe, but I was also figuring everything out at the same time. 

 

Have you ever done that? 

‘What if your job wasn’t to figure out if you could trust someone, a person, or a situation, but rather trust the universe, and trust, the energy and how it feels in your body? 

So the invitation was to trust the universe. One of the things my coach said was, ‘all you have to do is show up in the moment and see how you feel in the moment in your body. Think about that. Think about if you never had to figure out if you could trust someone or if you’re doing the right thing. 

 

All you have to do is show up in the moment and trust that the universe will give you what you need to respond. Then notice how you feel in your body in response to what’s happening, or the circumstance, or person or opportunity, etc.

 

I know for a lot of you, you might be saying ‘but I don’t know how to tell how I feel in my body.  I get it, and we have curriculums about that because people don’t know how they feel in their bodies. That’s why we practice. That’s why we become Sourced leaders. Trusting the energy is not something we instantly do because we’re trained out of knowing how to show up in the moment, feel how we feel in our body, and trust the energy.

 

We’re trained to override our inner knowing in favor of pleasing our parents or our teachers, etc. Showing up in the moment, and trusting the energy is an advanced practice. I made a decision to practice showing up in the moment, and trusting the energy.

All you have to do is show up in the moment and trust that the universe will give you what you need to respond. Then notice how you feel in your body in response to what’s happening, or the circumstance, or person or opportunity, etc.

I have to tell you; the universe had my back.  I didn’t have to figure anything out. Time after time, the universe presented to me the circumstances, the people, and bits of information that my body and my energy field could respond to, and then I could discern the truth. 

 

I never had to sit and figure out whether I could trust; I never had to fix anything about myself. Granted, I have done a lot of work to be able to actually show up and hear it. 

 

Imagine if that were true for you. I want you to think about how you would hold your business differently. How would you hold your relationships or the leadership of your team differently? 

 

If you knew all you had to do is show up and trust that the universe would deliver the perfect circumstances, for people to behave in the perfect way to show you exactly what you need to know, to make the decision. 

 

Then we have to trust it. Sometimes we feel it, but it might feel familiar. And we think that that feels good. But that’s not true. Just because energy feels familiar doesn’t mean it feels good in your body. That’s where the practice comes in. 

 

What’s it been like for you on your journey of learning? Do you trust the energy? Do you trust that you will notice it, to sense it, to feel it and to make decisions based on that without having to explain yourself to anyone? I would love to hear? 

 

Just because energy feels familiar doesn’t mean it feels good in your body. That’s where the practice comes in.
