I have a been a volunteer track coach at my daughter’s middle school the past couple of months.
I am coaching the distance runners.
The last couple of weeks, I had these athletes doing hard workouts on the track.
They were gettng their bodies used to the stress of running at their desired goal pace.
They were bonding as a team.
They were also supporting each other and cheering for each other.
A couple of weeks ago, the team completed a very hard workout running 800 meter repeats at goal pace on the track.
At our next track meet, all of these athletes, all our male and female distance runners, set a new personal record (PR) in their races.
All of them.
Several of the runners who ran two races in the meet set new PR’s in both races they ran.
These athletes achieved some amazing results being part of a positive collective energy.
A positive collective energy that did include stress.
There are also many examples of negative collective energy all over our planet.
Negative collective energies of destruction, death and despair.
Negative collective energies based on self-serving interpretations of ancient writings and current situations.
What is your edge of collective energy?
Are you part of any collective energy with your family, friends, a belief system, a political point of view, a religion?
Is your collective energy positive or negative?
Does your collective energy allow you to achieve something beneficial or be a better person?
Or is your collective energy holding you back, keeping you trapped, or is it destructive to yourself or others?
If you are part of a negative collective energy, what steps can you take to remove yourself from it?
How can you become part of a positive collective energy instead?
It is easier than you think.
