Yes, yes, yes — anyone can do it. You do not have to be able to see or feel energy. In the course of the work you will most likely develop the ability to do so, but you don’t have to be able to do it.
The truth is, you have felt energy before, you just didn’t think of it that way.
Think of a time when you were feeling fine, and then were around a group of people who were angry, upset, or depressed? How did it make you feel? Think of places where you felt uncomfortable: it might be a crowded car on the tube, or a place that has tense or unhappy people in it. You probably can remember places or people that when you are there you feel uncomfortable or headachy or just don\’t like it. Something about the energy is bothering you,
Think of people that when you around them you tend to good. (Even if you don’t know them or even speak with them).
Are there places you go that make you feel good? Certain people that it feels better after they come into a room? Often that is out in nature; it might be in a place of worship; it might be in a particular room in your home or a particular spot in your garden &mdash all you know is that when you are there you feel good. The first time I went to the city of Bath, I noticed that at certain locations in and around Bath I felt really good for no apparent reason.
By telling people they have problems from other people’s energy, isn’t that giving them a negative unconscious suggestion?
Many people started studying NLP because they were concerned about some “problem” in their life. Concern about your present and future well being is a good reason to start studying Energetic NLP. In NLP, we learn to help people with the skill of creating positive compelling futures — and we also help them with the skill of creating negative compelling futures (see the book, Know How, for a great discussion on this). Those of you who are in danger from absorbing other people’s energies are in danger whether you are warned about it or not. The difference that makes a difference is that now you have the opportunity to do something about it!
