A few weekends ago I attended a weekend training session around an amazing tool called the Energetic Leadership Assessment.

I met some brilliant people and learned some powerful new things, had a few ‘aha’ moments and was re-inspired to work with clients using the new perspective we were trained about.

There is controversy out there as to who said, “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”  However, it doesn’t matter who said it but simply that this statement true.  Try walking through your day with a high level of energy and see how others respond.  It is pretty amazing to watch.

Below is a description of the 7 levels of energy.  The assessment I use allows us to see where you resonate energetically during times of peace and times of stress. However, without the assessment, it is possible to look at the chart below and think about where you experience each of these levels.  

Remember you aren’t at a level– you are experiencing the level.  It is important to think about how much time you spend in each level.  It is important to observe this. You could spend time in that  level for a minute, an hour, a month depending on situation.

Energetic Self Perception[1]

Level 1-At this level, what happens is an experience and/or sensation.  It is contagious and you can feel it.  Mostly can tell it is happening through emotions.  We do our best to describe it with words so use the words that most closely describe it below.

Level 2-At this level a lot of action occurs and things get done.  

What occurs:
