Energy Creates Form – Lessons to Success

Energy Creates Form – Lessons to Success


“Energy creates form” is a concept shared by Buddhists and nuclear physicists.  The basic idea is that when you apply energy to something, this energy begins to shape the material reality or expression behind that energy.

It’s not as abstract as it may sound.  It’s all about attracting and manifesting what you believe to be true.  Your thoughts are perhaps even more powerful than your actions because they are the engine behind the actions.  Beliefs and thoughts are like magnets.  You cannot see a magnet’s power, but soon, forks, bottle caps and pieces of metal are flying through the air, pulled by this invisible force, and the magnetic attraction has taken tangible shape.

This is relevant for anyone making their way through the business world and even just making their way through life.  The realization that you become what you believe—that life is a self-fulfilling prophecy—determines how it goes.  And it’s key to remember this when encountering negativity, whether it be your own or someone else’s.

Energy Vampires

Throughout my working life, I’ve encountered what I call energy vampires.  These are needy individuals who have a victim’s personality, believing the world is out to get them, and they sing a victim song.  They say the world is a terrible place, that they have been treated unjustly by life, and that the same may happen to you—not exactly a cheery thought.

Even John F. Kennedy said, “Life is not fair.  Some of you are born richer, poorer, taller, shorter, even prettier or smarter than others.”  This fact defines the hand of cards you were dealt by destiny, luck and fortune, including your DNA and a million other circumstances out of your control.  But what’s far more important is how you play your hand once you’ve had the chance to examine and understand the cards you hold.

In the simplest terms, it comes down to choice.  You do have a choice, you do have free will, and you do make key decisions throughout life.  Many people get stuck in a feeling of helplessness because their initial hand of cards may not be entirely to their liking or because a wild card shows up without invitation.  But you still exercise choice as your choose you responses to all of the things in life over which you feel you have no control.

Fight Through

So perhaps you’re a bright, motivated, chic skin therapist, and yet nothing is going your way.  The economy is bad, your practice is inconsistent, you can’t afford to buy all the nice things you’d like, you work too many hours, your feet hurt, there is no end to the laundry, your friends and family complain they never see you…Please, hold it right there.

As a friend from Brooklyn always says, get over yourself!  The key is to hold a picture in your mind and the heart of your being about what you want to happen and what you most passionately wish to be true.  This may be as simple as a full appointment book.  Or it may be a skin care center of your very own.

First, form a clear picture in your mind.  Then bring this picture to mind consciously throughout the day, and hold it in your mind when your head finally hits the pillow at night.  This way, it can permeate your subconscious thoughts as you sleep.

This is the opposite of dwelling on what you don’t want.  Banish from your mind the long list of negative what-ifs.  These include: What if I lose my touch? What if our building catches on fire? And so on. You just have to tell yourself to stop it.

Thoughts such as these are the magnets described earlier.  This is not to mean your mere thoughts can actually cause your building to catch on fire.  But thoughts, both negative and positive, do attract material actions.

It’s Up to You

The ones who succeed are the ones who keep reaching.  The ultimate victors don’t ever see themselves as victims, failures or losers; they merely see themselves as future success stories that have not yet been told.  The same qualities are always required: focus, persistence, passion for the goal and a refusal to quit.  Each of these qualities is defined by your commitment to repel the negativity that arises from the inside.

Remember, misery loves company, so have none of it.  Go on to shine.
