The Energy of Energy


“ Progress is impossible without change and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. ” 
- George Bernard Shaw

The most important energy we have in the world is human energy – the power of human potential.  History is filled with pioneers that built this great country and history will continue to be filled with pioneers that can solve our most pressing issues.  We have thrived and will continue to thrive on a broad continuum of evolution, but only as long as we continue to tap into our greatest resource – ourselves.  Our potential is limitless as long as we recognize that it exists.  There is no problem that is not solvable even ones that appear impossible.  But we have to stop looking outside ourselves for the answer.  The answer is within.  The answer is also filled with compassion and hope – not fear.  Fear only isolates us and makes everything seem impossible.  But when we choose to see things differently, to see that we can all be agents of change, we begin to see that together, even greater change is possible.  We need to reimagine the way we see energy and we need to start with our own. 

The average person thinks 60-70,000 thoughts a day and by the time we are 35 years old, 95% of those thoughts are the same as the day before. That means your world goes on auto-pilot, re-creating the past over and over again, shrinking your world, your life, your ability to access your creator-ship, entraining your whole body, mind, nervous system, brain, hormones, endocrine system, and all your habits are the ones from the past.

Neuroscience has been studying the energy around thoughts for decades. Researchers are well aware that there are distinct differences in how the body and mind respond to both positive and negative emotions. They are discovering that when you have positive thoughts, your awareness and possibilities open up, which then allows you to build new skills that provide greater value to your life. Positive thinking has a direct impact on your brain, and the science is called neuroplasticity. This idea was originally introduced in 1890 by William James but was rejected because scientists at the time did not think the brain could change its structure. Science now knows that the brain can adapt and how we think about things has a direct correlation on our environment.

Quantum physics states that we all live in a sea of energy and that objects cannot exist independently of the observer.  What we see is based on our thoughts.  When we change our thoughts we change the environment around us. 

What if we could move the discussion around energy in a more positive direction?

Researchers know that negative emotions limit and narrow our thinking and don’t allow us the vision to see possibilities. Fredrickson who is a positive psychology researcher at the University of North Carolina and has studied the impacts of positive thinking and the impact it has on your skills and refers to this as the “broaden and build” theory.  If we can turn the conversations around energy into a positive solution-based direction, we can open ourselves up to discovering sustainable solutions that might even surprise us. Regardless of where you stand on your view of climate change or how we power our lives, we all need this planet and need to use every tool at our disposal to make sure we are working toward humanities greater good.

As one researcher Scheier stated, "We know why optimists do better than pessimists," Optimists are not simply being Pollyannas; they're problem solvers who try to improve the situation."

We are the most valuable resource we have – not wind, not sun, not oil.  Our collective energy can power so much more and together we can solve the most pressing of energy issues. 

So please join Energy360 in being “problem solvers” and creating encouraging conversations around the many challenges and opportunities needed to power our planet, our lives and making this Garden of Eden a place for all to enjoy for generations to come.

 We are all in the energy business!!
