Want to be free of Burnout, Fatigue, and Overwhelm? Take our FREE GODDESS ENERGY SUPERPOWER ASSESSMENT to find out in 10 questions which Goddess Energy is your strength.
What are the “Goddess Energies”?
The Goddess Energies are based on the Goddess Sustainability Cycle. We have been taught that we should work endlessly and de-prioritize time for ourselves. But that leads to burnout, fatigue and failure.
You aren’t static. You are a DYNAMIC and FLUID being.
If you take the test, and it shows that you are Fire Goddess Energy dominant, that means it’s where you are when you are taking the test. We’ve all had days where the Air Goddess Energy just kicks in and we get a TON done.
You could take the test on different days of the week, at different points in your cycle, thinking of the past year, etc. It will show where you are most often operating from, and if you are human, that changes all the time.
It gets to be a problem if you lean on one energy so much that you are out of balance. It’s easy to get out of balance, you can take a job that nurtures one energy more than the others. You can find that one of the energies is just your FAVORITE place to operate from and really dig in to that. If you are unbalanced, other parts of your life are not getting the care that you need to distribute to them.
The ideal is a BALANCE of all 5 energies, with all 5 being a part of your life.
What does this mean for burnout and overwhelm?
Burnout and overwhelm are ALWAYS the result of staying in any of the energies too long (except for “Plentiful”) because these are the result of feeling ineffective and frustrated .
When you understand which energy is your default, it can tell us about what things you are really skilled at and what you should delegate.
There was a study about a speed reading course (this was the 90’s so that was a thing…) where someone was testing the effectiveness of a speed reading course. They tested the subjects reading rates before the course and then afterwards. They proved that the course was effective when everyone read faster after it was over. But the average readers improved by 20% while the already-fast readers improved by 200% or more!
What’s the lesson?
LEAN INTO YOUR STRENGTHS!
You can get “good” at something that is contrary to your nature, but you will need to work extra hard to get above average at that skill.
When you train and hone your natural strengths, you can become world-class!
