Our Emotional Energies Provide Our Direction

The four types of emotional energy that we each have are creative, logic, relationship and grounding.

To gather energy, we use either grounding or creative energy.

In order to process energy, we use either logic or relationship energy.

The energies are:

1) Relationship energy—working with and being sensitive to others.

2) Logic energy—setting goals, planning action needed and analyzing resources available.

3) Creative energy—looking at new solutions for problems and possible redirecting to implement change.

4) Grounding energy—getting the job completed on schedule.

To develop energy in each area, we may try the following:

1) Creative energy—we may need to play at solving problems. Turn the solution into a game.

2) Logic energy—we may choose to do some projects that call for measurement, for example, measuring all your rooms to estimate the total floor space available in your room.

3) Relationship energy—we need to practice expressing feelings in intimate situations.

4) Grounding energy—we need to explore our physical world during walks, etc., by noticing colors, smells, sounds, etc., of our world.
