Energies are the Invisible Key to Fulfilling Relationships

Donna & David teaching the
Energies of Love in 2004
To improve your relationships, understanding the psychology of relationships will help - dynamics such as the way we tend to project unresolved issues with our mother or father onto our wife or husband are certainly important.  But, understanding the energy or relationship can help in ways that are both more fundamental and more immediate!

The union of energies determines the way you communicate, the way you fight, the way you love, and the way you want to be loved.  There are four energetic or sensory styles at play in all kinds of relationships.

The Four Sensory System Stress Modes

Visual Style
  • Projects Own Vision on the Others

  • Easily Moves to Anger
  • Motto: "You're Wrong!"
Tonal Style
  • "Hears" Between the Lines
  • Exasperation at Not Feeling Heard
  • Hears Inner Dialogue Louder Than Partner's Voice
  • Interprets, Analyzes, & Judges Everything

  • Judges Self, Hard on Self
  • Absorbed in Own World
  • Withdraws, Falsely Feeling Rejected
  • Motto: "I'm Angry at You for Making Me Wrong."
Digital Style

  • Too Calm, Cool, and Collected
  • Logical, Rational, Reasonable
  • No Clue That There is a Problem
  • Orderly, Structured, Programmed
  • Tune Out the Others' Truth
  • Can't Be Reached with Feelings, Exasperating
  • Motto: "I'm Right!"
Kinesthetic Style

  • Overly Compassionate
  • Compulsive Enablers
  • Undiscerning

The Three Thumps

The Three Thumps exercise is part of the Daily Energy Routine that Donna Eden shares in her book Energy Medicine (pgs. 74-80).

Three Thumps

This process consists of tapping on three different meridian points. Tapping on these points will restore your energy when you are tired, increase your vitality and keep your immune system strong. Use this process each morning and anytime during the day that you need a pick-me-up.

1) K-27 Points

K-27 Points

To location these points, place the pointer finger of each hand on your collarbone and move your hands toward each other until you reach the two inside corners of your collarbone.  Drop straight down from these points to about an inch below your collarbone.  For most people, there is a soft spot or indentation there.

Tap or massage these points for about 30 seconds while breathing in and out.

Variation: in order to assist the energy to cross over from right to left and left to right... cross your arms and tap the left collar bone with the right fist and the right collar bone with the left fist.
Benefits of tapping K-27 points:
  • Increased energy
  • Feel more alert
  • Focus if you are having difficulty concentrating
