A demo is arranged by the undersigned on Energy Psychology application
to a Coaching Community. As Energy Psychology, (EP for short) is a new
subject to many people, some concepts on EP is shared and discussed so
that there is more understanding observing the EP coaching in action
This is not a training session on Energy Psychology Coaching, hence full
elaboration is not addressed here. For those interested in the formal
training and organization practice, please contact the undersigned.(or
refer:EP for Organization)
The following SYNOPSIS was given to the Coaching community
before the EP demo:
A human being is not just the physical parts, nor just the
rational mind, the sub-conscious mind. It is much more than
that. Word itself is already a limitation to describe the
totality and the essence of the human being. Nevertheless we
still need words to describe – the words used are Body
Intelligence / Energy Field and its Life Force.
Conventional coaching uses largely the conscious / rational
mind, which can help coachee-client to some extent. At the same
time scientists inform us that the conscious mind is only a
small fraction of a human being’s all knowing, or wisdom. As
such, conventional coaching can only address a small fraction of
the total being.
Energy Psychology coaching addresses or communicates with the
Body Intelligence / Energy Fields to help the coachee-client to
tap into the enormous hidden potentials.
A volunteer coachee for the Energy Psychology demo can come with
issues or apparent no issues. The Body Intelligence may have an
intention for the being, possibly manifested through the Energy
Psychology coaching process.
Hence whoever are the volunteer coachee can feel relaxed and let
the process guide you towards a solution, consciously known or
not. Depending on the time availability, we can have one or two
Concepts Underlying EP Coaching
- “The observer cannot be separated from that which is
observed.” – Werner Heisenberg
- “Everything is emptiness, form is condensed emptiness.”
– Albert Einstein
- “Nothingness is the building block of the universe.” –
- “The universe is an interconnected whole” – David Bohm
- “There are no local causes” – John Stuart Bell
- “Cause and Effect are not closely related in time and
space.” – Dr. Peter Senge.
- "Biography becomes biology" - Caroline Myss
- “The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of
our inner thoughts and beliefs. Every cell within your body responds
to every single thought you think and every word you speak.” ~
The famous "Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle" in the Quantum mechanics,
emerges from the study of the atomic world. Physicists trying to prove
the theories of particles and waves, found that the results of what they
want to prove, is what was in their mind, on the onset - if you want to
prove that the "thing" is a particle, then the thing behaves like a
particle. If you want to prove the thing is a wave-form, then it is a
Hence - "The observer cannot be separated from that which is observed"
In the atomic world, we learn that an atom is made up of electrons,
neutron etc. which is a very very small fraction of an atom, as the
majority of it is space, or void, or emptiness, or ENERGY.
We as human being, is fundamentally made up of Emptiness, or Energy.
“Everything is emptiness, form is condensed emptiness.” – Albert
What we sense as form, the physical, is manifested from the emptiness.
Scientists use other language-concepts to describe the emptiness, ..
energy, information, consciousness, intelligence.
What have the above got to do with our business in coaching with people
to get on with challenges faced or life?
First, from the above, we can deduce that human being is made up of
vastness of emptiness, and hence enormous potentialities, un-tapped.
Hence in coaching, if only we can access to this enormous field of
And it is hoped that the coming EP Coaching demo can show something of
In doing so, EP coach is mindful of "The observer cannot be separated
from that which is observed", even though as professional coach, we
focus on client's agenda, never coach's agenda. But "“The universe is an
interconnected whole” we can never isolate ourselves as coach and
coachee as another entity. Coach and Coachee relationship is like a
dance in action, you can't have a dance partner not dancing.
In EP protocol, the structure of the process tries to reduce as much any
imposition of coach's not useful "energy" onto the coachee's.
For that you may like to make your observations during the EP demo.
In coaching, a coach is making more conscious observations on the
coachee, as the later could be more engrossed in his or her own issues
In the light of "The observer cannot be separated from that which is
observed", coach is to be mindful of the subtle energy that can have
negative impact on the coachee. The subtle energy can be in the form of
pre-judgment of the client, holding certain strong views about the
coachee;s worldviews, or own preferred viewpoints.
It might well be the coachee is sensitive to the coach’s subtle energy,
though it is not the intention of the coach. For example, the coachee
may react not so positively on the coach’s diary on the table (as an
example), as that reminds her of a sad happening in her life.
Then the challenge is on the part of the coach, how to pick up such
reaction, which usually the client may not review, but keep in the
heart, and that can affect the rest of the coaching session.
As per the scientists’ study, ENERGY is consciousness, information,
intelligence and messages, how then can such signals be accessed?
Again, we hope that such scenario may arise in our next EP coaching
In the above discussion we used an example of a diary that may trigger
something in the coachee, for that matter, something in the room or the
overall organization culture (he or she works in) may have some bearing
on the coachee too.
We will move on now to discuss two categories of concepts underlying
“The universe is an interconnected whole” – David Bohm
“There are no local causes” – John Stuart Bell
“Cause and Effect are not closely related in time and space.” – Dr.
A coachee may put forwards some causes to his or her own problem during
coaching. An EP coach is mindful of the above concepts, and with open
mind, guide the coachee to explore on different parameters, and not just
on the obvious causes – e.g. I can’t perform well in my work merely due
to too much workload, or, my constant tiredness is due to my sickness.
At the same time, there could be thousands factors as causes to
speculate. EP coach will utilize the client’s body intelligence to get
"Biography becomes biology" - Caroline Myss
“The body, like everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner
thoughts and beliefs. Every cell within your body responds to every
single thought you think and every word you speak.” ~ Louise Hay
Another concepts to the above is “The body never lies”. “The required
information (the biography) of the coachee-client is in the biology, the
body”. Or,” the body stores the information”.
Most of us have such experience – just looking at a person, say, a)
depressed look and behaviour, b) another person, walks straight with
confidence, smile and calmness on the face. We can be quite correct to
speculate that the former have problem to achieve his or her goals,
whereas the later will have no problem. The body has its own
intelligence to tell a lot of information.
An EP coach will pay particular attention to the body reaction and
feedback on the issue at hand raised by the coachee, and thus bring
greater awareness to the conscious mind of the client to make wise
The stored information in the body can be in the tense shoulder or
Let’s see whether we have opportunity to witness the above in the coming
Energy Psychology demo session.
