The Chinese refer to it as chi, yogic systems of India as prana. The Japanese call it ki. The Hunas of Hawaii name it mana, and the Jewish Kabbalists know it as ruach. When it flows unimpeded in and through our lives we are more prone to good health, both physical and mental, more inclined to follow through to the attainment of whatever goals we have set, and more likely to experience prolonged moments of peace and happiness.

"Reading Energy rekindled
in me a gratitude for the awesome gift of life's energy and a renewed sense
of responsibility for who I am and what I might become."
Fred Richards, Ph.D.
(1998 Georgia Counselor of the Year, co-author of Perceptual Psychology: A Humanistic Approach to the Study of Persons)
Quote from introduction:
"We live in a world that's constantly changing. And what's more, the changes are increasing exponentially - "faster than a shooting star". Past behavioral patterns and inflexible thought systems are failing us, and we aren't sure what to do about it. We look for help on everything from losing weight to improving relationships. But even when we find what appear to be the answers, most often we can't follow through and do what we intend. And we are left with a sense of failure.Table of Contents:
The impediment to our success is most frequently a lack of Energy. When we have enough of it, we find ways to attain not only whatever material or career goals we have set, but also those elusive states we call happiness and peace of mind. When we don't, daily life becomes hectic, and we struggle just to react to life rather than to live it. So this book is about Energy: awakening to its availability, opening the blocks to its flow, and using it wisely."
