I first became keenly aware of it through
the contrast - their energy plummeting when/if they
were interrupted, typically by an adult, at the
moment of 'getting' an inspiration! WOW!
Now, that awareness was cool and really enhanced
my relationships...with children and adults, as
I made the choice to practice 'listening' for more
natural lulls in the energy flow, thus minimizing
interruptions at peak moments.
But what REALLY cranked up my awareness was taking
the time to consistently ask 'Right Questions' and
follow my own energy flow!!!
I'm a member of another online community -
(GreatestNetworker.com, there's a link on my
Ryze page) and one of the many, many benefits
of membership is their Call Partner Program.
Any member can participate in this program
which consists of being partnered with another
member and agreeing to make a daily (Mon-Fri)
15-30 min. phone call alternately asking a
series of questions and listening, without
feedback, to the answers - with - answering those
questions. (Meaning one day you're the 'questioner'
and the next day you're the 'answerer'- same
set of questions asked daily)
Kurt Wright and John Milton Fogg developed a
series of questions designed to tap into the
intuitive mind, opening you up to inspiration
and unfolding a steady increase in energy!
I'm not exagerating in the least when I tell
you the results and insights, for me, are nothing
less than stunning! And many, many others are
equally amazed at the power of this exercise and the
insights gained...I know members who have been
making Call Partner calls daily for the past
FOUR YEARS and they continue to benefit!!!
I share this simply as encouragement to take
action and break the rules!! It really does
remove obstacles to effortless high performance! :-)
So now, I'm curious, what would be one "RIGHT
Question" you could ask today that would fuel
increasing your energy?
What makes that valuable or important to you?
And, heads up...these are NOT rhetorical questions! LOL

When completely disconnected from our intuitive minds, our rational minds have been proven totally incapable of distinguising truth from fiction. This startling discovery comes from the clinical medical research which earned Dr. Roger Sperry (http://almaz.com/nobel/medicine/1981a.html) the 1981 Nobel Prize for Medicine.

As a result, our WHAT'S RIGHT questions are deferred to our less assertive but far more powerful intuition -- where they are processed in a manner that generates energy. By 'more power', I mean that our intuition processes somewhere between 1,000 and 10,000 times as fast as our rational mind. In addition, we know it synthesizes parts into a unified whole, generates
