Not just the kind of energy you get from food, or that’s generated in your cells as a result of your mitochondria; I’m talking about the source of that currency of life you know is there, but you can’t see or touch or in many cases even measure. It’s vital. And frankly, it’s not 100% explainable. Not, not just by me, but by not even the top scientists in the world can fully explain it.
Heck, even the Chinese, including all the masters, can’t fully explain “Chi,” but their five-thousand-year old culture knows it’s there. Tai Chi, Qi Gong are built on it.
You definitetly have some of it, but do you have enough of it? It’s vital that you do.
If you were to search Wikipedia on “vitalism”—the theory that the origin and phenomena of life are dependent on a vital principle distinct from purely chemical or physical forces, you would learn that it’s a discredited scientific hypothesis. You would also learn that despite being widely accepted within the mainstream scientific community, vitalism is no longer considered to be an adequate or complete description of reality.
Well, no one said that vital energy, was a “complete description of reality,” but a rather large part, to-say-the-least, yes.
That said, although rejected by modern science,  Vitalism has a long history in medical philosophies: and most traditional healing practices posit that disease results from some imbalance in vital forces.
Again, and I love the healing traditions, but sometimes they take things a bit too far. Energy imbalances are surely a part of the disease equation, but wholly responsible, no. There are food and nutrition, including sun and water, air quality, environmental quality, physical fitness, emotional fitness and psychological strength and so much more that go into disease states and more positively, human performance.
It’s why ISHAR (by Deepak Chopra’s Chopra Foundation) is there to not only explain Integrative Studies but to present the mountains of evidence so that time-tested and proven ideas like the vital principle can be weighted fairly. And that means the evidence that goes beyond purely chemical or physical forces.
Just ask an athlete, if their performance is based only on chemical or physical forces alone. Miss one night or even have one bad night of sleep ahead of a competition, and despite even the most rigorously planned and measured diet and exercise program, she’ll can be rendered relatively powerless compared to the competition.
It’s why Pete Carroll of the Super Bowl Seattle Seahawks said, “Sleep is a weapon, a key pillar to improving health and performance.“
What is THAT energy?
It’s vital, and it can only be measured, practically by energy output, via wattage, like when a cyclist measures their power output. There are also some new and unique vital energy imaging tools out there, measuring the biofield, sure, but the word is still out on what’s learned from the results and how you can apply it in your life.
But neither of those measurement tools is needed to dramatically improve your vital power, your personal energy or personal power (the energy that powers your person).
Want to know the difference between something that’s alive and something that isn’t alive or isn’t alive anymore? It’s the vital energy that powers the cells. A dead person has cells, but no more power. And of course, inanimate objects, like rocks, don’t have cells.
This observation above is basic, yet it’s a profound and powerful one.
When you don’t have enough vital energy, everything in your life becomes just a little less alive, less animated until you eventually burn out usually by wearing your body out.
With every overexertion, you cease to function a little bit more and your
- Attitude suffers.
- Work suffers.
- The quality of life suffers.
And your relationships with your partner, your friends, and your family also suffer. Frankly, everything suffers because everything in your life depends on your energy, including your health, let alone your performance.
Life becomes a struggle, when you have to eat and drink your way through the day to keep going, to engage in extreme work ethic and more just to stimulate yourself.
Gone is that naturally occurring energy you once took for granted.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to go through life like that anymore.
The truth is, you have access to unlimited amounts of energy available to you on tap if you know how to access it. And it will give rise to every possible life-enhancing state of mind and high-performing emotion you can imagine from purpose to passion.
I have dedicated the last 13 years of my life to discovering this “vital energy” that a lot of people are talking about but few know how “to talk about” and not as an end in and of itself, which it is not.
I’ve discovered this source of renewable personal power that will enable you to live your life from a position of strength, as part of a fully integrated, balanced (regarding skills) and healthy (a given) “performance lifestyle” that acknowledges where you’re true power originates.
It did so as a sort of a “reluctant hero-type,” for a variety of reasons. I was so driven and my life as a result, so unmanageable, I was suffering from constant fatigue. So I had to chip away at this over many years to ground myself in what was real. So this has been a quest of mine, since my teens, to understand this at the level that could transform not only my life but others as well.
I wanted to know, not only the physical science-based knowledge about personal energy but the non-physical studies that too often get overlooked because the scientific men can’t measure it. It is arguably more important and far more influential than the physical science itself.
This inquiry has meant years of reviewing countless books, reviewing the scientific literature, working with world-class sleep doctors and athletic coaches. Also, discussions with Ivy League researchers and, with an open-mind an emphasis on direct experience, and searching out the integrative yet non-mainstream studies (now becoming mainstream) such as on consciousness, flow, meditation, relaxation, meditation, Qigong and more.
And if there is anything that I would guarantee that will transform your life, without any question, it is personal (vital) energy renewal. Nothing compares and everything depends on it.
This has all been to provide a model for lifestyle design, based in what will enable you to overcome fatigue and increase your vital energy levels.
Yes, we get into nutrition and fitness and in a way that will help you maximize your energy levels. Sleep too; as this is foundational to any energy management solution; but in PERC, we also take the veil off of what has been one of the unknown subjects in the history of humankind.
Why has energy been so misunderstood? Well, it’s because it’s been too tied up with spirituality, alternative pseudoscience and talked down by scientists simply because it’s an inconvenient truth for their work that they can’t fully qualify.
But no longer is this the case. Science is coming around. The recent Sages and Scientists conference by the Chopra Foundation is proof of that. The insights you’ll learn will make you respect and want to prioritize your sleep and more like never before.
So what do you need to learn to leave the recent you, who is feeling fatigued and exhausted and now start performing, looking and feeling like the much younger person you once were?
And how can you go from fatigued to filled with the vital energy you need to succeed every day?
That’s what my team and I will show you, and not through an overwhelming dump of information that sucks up even more of your power just to get through.
We will deliver the perfect combination of insight, education and application.
At the end of the day, that’s what’s going to work for you. Not shiny objects and science alone, it’s going to be what will plays out right in your life.
So if you’ve been struggling with fatigue, feeling tired all the time, have been misdiagnosed with adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia or a virus—
Or, even if you’re already pretty darn healthy and looking for an advanced, cutting-edge, science-backed practice to take your energy, and subsequently your health and performance, not just to the next level but a whole new tier of human experience—
Then you need the PERC.
But first I want you to get connected with a 100% free webinar training from me, John Allen Mollenhauer “JAM,” founder of Performance Lifestyle, Inc.
It is 100% free and loaded with powerful strategies that are going to help you overcome fatigue and start building the foundation for a mind, body, and spirit filled with vital energy.
Oh, and one thing I need to you keep in mind; this isn’t the same old, keep-you-stuck type of stuff (what you’ll come to know as Tier 1 solutions) that leave you chasing your tail with information and ideas even the experts teaching them struggle with. Believe me, to borrow a phrase from Jake Steinfeld, “I’ve seen a lot famous people naked and they’ve got nothing on you.”
Even the experts struggle with the litany of incomplete and tactical diet and exercise ideas devoid of the real juice such as telling you to sleep more, eat more veggies, cut your carbs, eliminate sugar, take supplements, etc. most of which are marketing-based, not science-based, let alone a complete solution.
PERC is based on the powerful and practical new science that meditators, athletes and other high performing people have been using for decades but has never-before-been-assembled for those who may not be into sports, the sciences or what is ultimately the key to it all – grounding in the ultimate source of energy that will blow your mind and dramatically, increase your energy.
