Energy You Don’t Need

The process of Logosynthesis is about using words to open a pathway for energy to move. Many of my clients and students understand quite well how to take their own energy into a situation and leave it there. It makes complete sense. You give your energy to something when it grabs your attention and your attention stays focused on that event or person.

It is harder to understand how you acquire someone else’s energy.

One way to understand this is when you remember being a child and your parents said something to you that you hated. You made a vow to never, ever say that horrible thing to your own children. Then, as a parent yourself, when you were stressed about something, those exact (horrible) words came tumbling out of your mouth! Yikes!

When you were under stress as a child in that situation, you picked up your parent’s energy and had been carrying it around ever since. You can use the second Logosynthesis sentence to return that energy to its source. “Where it truly belongs.” It might not even belong to your parents, it might have come to them from somewhere else, so we use a more general term. What we know for certain is that you no longer need it and can let it go.

Giving Up Anger

It can be frightening to give up an old behavior pattern, even if keeping it causes problems. And suffering, seeing yourself as a victim is one of those patterns.

The first pattern I was invited to give up was anger. I was living in a new city with a new group of friends and studying Transactional Analysis. I habitually used anger to get what I wanted in the world.

I had learned to use it in a family and a culture that heard anger as a message that something was important. It was also a sign of strength. I was fearful that without it, I would be ignored.

I agreed to experiment by avoiding using angry words and body language for a week.

I was quite surprised when I discovered that asking for what I wanted instead of demanding it still got me what I wanted. And the people I asked seemed to treat me better afterwards.

I reported my results and agreed to make the change permanent. I still get angry sometimes, but instead of manipulating others, I use that energy to solve problems

You can easily release an old pattern using the Logosynthesis tools and you too can discover an even better way to operate in the world. And with Logosynthesis, the process is faster and easier.

Release Control without Damage

I asked an engineer friend to review my new Experience Abundance (with Logosynthesis) book and he asked, “Where is the right place in myself?” This is a fairly common question from people who operate almost entirely in a logical bubble.

I know the immense value of logic. Not only that, but as a young science teacher, I was proud of training my students to think logically. It took a while to recognize that there is more besides logic for understanding the world.

When I read Lawrence LeShan’s 1976 book,  Alternate Realities, I began to understand much more clearly that what we believe about how things work makes it much easier for things to work that way. When we acknowledge that we are spiritual beings/energy systems, with our core True Self connected to all that is, by whatever name we call it, it is easier (but not impossible) to allow energy practices to work–as Logosynthesis does. And trying to figure out, logically, where that is, does not help at all.

What does help is simply to relax and notice how your emotions and body respond to the words in each sentence and to allow your True Self to manage the rest.
