The Energy Dimension

Patterns

There are four problematic patterns in the Energy Dimension—Destroyer, Depressed, Anxious, and Manic. You may click on each link to learn more about the pattern and then decide if you want to explore it, now or later.

The Destroyer is an Inner Critic that squashes your energy and tells you that you don’t have the right to exist. It is profoundly shaming.

The Depressed Pattern involves feeling hopeless about your future, bad about yourself, and low on energy. You often find it hard to function, and you feel worthless. This pattern can be produced by the Destroyer.

The Anxious Pattern involves being anxious and nervous most of the time or suffering from panic attacks at times. You may not know what you are anxious about, or your degree of anxiety may be much greater than the situation warrants. (This pattern is not in STJ yet.)

The Manic Pattern involves being agitated and overly speedy, not being able to relax, and being driven to excesses of action, often without consideration for the consequences.

Capacities

There are two complementary healthy capacities in the Energy Dimension--Peace and Aliveness. You may click on each link to learn more about the capacity and then decide if you want to work on developing it, now or later.

The Peace Capacity involves the ability to be quiet and calm, unruffled by external events or internal emotional reactions. (This capacity is not in STJ yet.)

The Aliveness Capacity involves involves being vital and energetic, and having the ability to be excited about your life. You also know that you have the right to be here and take up space.
