Recommended video, audio and books

Energy is the form and expression of aliveness. We could also say that it is the fuel by which we can progress through life, that is the divine spark by which we know ourselves to be human. We feel our energy as pulsating, much like a sine wave or an ocean wave. Our energy comes and goes, our emotions swell and ebb, our intense responses to life comes in quivering and shaking.

We all need love and approval. Yet the key to unleashing our creative energy is finding the deepest sense of approval within ourselves. If we place the locus of our worth in the hands of others, we doom ourselves to a life of trying to please.
