The concept of Energy in Charisma School
In this article our goal is to define and bring clarity to all the different concepts of energy, magnetism, charisma, sexual energy, magnetic gaze and so on. It’s time to understand what we’re talking about.
It’s also important to point out that these are the Charisma School definitions. If you talk with teachers and read books on other traditions, please seek their own definitions, as most certainly, they will mean different things from what we talk about here. Discovering and defining the meaning of what we’re trying to develop and accomplish is of essential importance in all disciplines, but even more so in subtle concepts, like the concept of energy, since it’s something that can’t be seen or measured by today’s instruments.
We can’t really achieve what we plan to achieve, if there’s not clarity in our minds regarding it. So let’s achieve it together regarding all the concepts we talk in Charisma School.
In Charisma School we talk a lot about Energy, so let’s define this energy. There isn’t one definition of Energy as each ancient and esoteric text talk about it in a different way. We can equate this energy to Prana, Qi, Orgone energy, or the instinct of Freud for example.
We can go through the yoga notion of Prana. In several ancient scriptures, Prana means breath, they talk you about drawing the prana through the left nostrial and expel it through the right and vice versa. But in other scriptures, they mean more along the lines of “life-Force” for which breath is the gross expression of this subtle force. Another texts identify prana with the infinite consciousness and deep reality. Krishnamacharya, a great indian yogi linked prana to consciousness. There are plenty of definitions and different types of Prana even among the same traditions, so we need to cast a wide net to include all these possible meanings.
In the chinese tradition, the term Qi, also have several definitions and different types of qi. The chinese use Qi in different kinds of domains. It’s not limited to energetic practices or traditional chinese medicine, it’s also related to the everyday life, like for example, connections to emotional and mental states. For example, too much worries can cause damage to your spleen and they are the result of a Qi problem in your spleen. Or unordered Chi is associated to being frightened and heart damage. Then we have different types of Qi, like for example, Shen Chi, which is usually associated with the spirit and often times with the blood, We have Gu Chi, which is derivate from the food; then we have the Qi of each organ, Qi from the lungs, liver, spleen and so on.
In other words, both the chinese concept of Qi as well as the yogic concept of Prana, can be a broad concept with multiple subdivisions and they are not as linear as we in the west make it to be. It’s not so simple as to say Prana or Qi is life energy and get it over with. And we’ll talk about energy a lot in Charisma School, what’s important for you to understand is that we’re going to discuss several possible energy types like tension energy and sexual energy that can be in fact subdivisions of Prana or Qi, but we can’t reduce them to tension energy alone or sexual energy alone like Freud and Wilhelm Reich did with the orgone and libido energy. We consider them subdivisions of this whole and broad concept of Energy.
The first distinctions we’re going to make is between tension energy, personal magnetism and charisma.
Tension energy: it’s a subdivision of the whole concept of energy, prana or Qi that controls all physical movements, and yet, at the same time, appears to be something higher than physical itself; it’s generated with our nervous system in a controlled and systematized fashion. The nervous system not only conveys messages from the different parts of the body to the brain, but also serves to convey the energy of motion to the various parts. In short, there can be no motion of any part of the body unless the impulse comes from this tension energy. When the nerves governing any part of the body are paralyzed, that part of the body becomes devoid of motion. So you see, the nervous system is a part of the great energy-producing system of the body – as much a part of it as is the brain. Remember this as this is one of the basis of personal magnetism. By all means, tension energy, is not the only basis of personal magnetism or charisma, but since today we’re discussing energy, we can say that tension energy is the energetical basis of personal magnetism and charisma.
Personal Magnetism is the existence of a personal power, influence, or atmosphere, on the part of certain individuals, which enables the individual who posses it, to attract, influence or control others. These individuals flow with the vigorous tension energy and radiate this energy wth health and vitality that is very perceptible by all those who meet them or even are in the same room as them. As opposed to that, those who lack personal magnetism and tension energy, don’t display this, and can actually be considered vampires as they drain those who come in contact with. I’m sure you can relate to this when you are with someone and afterward you feel down and depressed or feeling negative in some way. In short, personal magnetism is a projection of the tension energy to the outside world.
Charisma according to our definition is bigger than personal magnetism. It’s more of a spiritual and personal quality. While it also encompasses personal magnetism, it’s range it’s bigger. We already have a whole video about what is charisma in general, so I won’t go into much more details here. We define it as a personal and spiritual quality, an appeal of personality that attracts others to you through a powerful energy that you exude from yourself. But it’s also an inner power that allows you to control your own mind, energy and body. It’s the expression of a healthy, happy and powerful person.
So in fact with Charisma, we have as basis the tension energy – which as you know it’s not the only one -, we have an expression of personal magnetism, and a deep inner power that allows you to be everything that you want and can be.
Now that you understand the basis of charisma, personal magnetism and tension energy, let’s define Sexual energy. What’s the diference from tension energy. Is it the same thing?
No, as you might have guessed, sexual energy, as well as tension energy, is also one of the multiple subdivisions of the broad concept of energy. Although tension energy will help you in the projection of sexual energy, they are not the same and they are cultivated and trained in different ways.
Sexual energy is the energy that drives the urge of sexual impulses. These sexual impulses control so much of what we do, how we act, and the choices we make; if it’s not properly harnessed, it can lead to great destruction. But when it’s properly harnessed and trained, then great things can happen. By cultivating and learning how to handle this sexual energy you can, for example, express your sexuality in a much better and healthier way, you can avoid all kinds of frustrations and pathologies that come from the lack of control of your sexual energy. Many men have a complete lack of awareness regarding their sexual impulses and because of this, they feel nervous when they are with women, they suffer from all kinds of sexual dysfunctions like premature ejaculation and impotence, as well as not being to deal with the normal everyday life frustrations that can be quite apparent since we live in a very sexualized society were everywhere we turn, we see sex. On ads, on our computers, on the internet, on tv, on billboards, and so on. For this reason, it’s crucial that we learn how to handle this energy.
Now that we know the difference from sexual energy and tension energy, we understand they are both related to personal magnetism and sexual magnetism. The same way that personal magnetism is the existence of Personal Power, influence or atmosphere on certain individuals which enables them to attract, influence or control others, the Sexual Magnetism focus exclusively on generating a personal sexual power, which may also lead to attract, influence and control of others, but it’s from using a different type of energy – on this case, sexual energy.
They are both the external expression of their energies.
Sexual Magnetism is obviuously a much more sexualized type of projection. To get a concrete example, Scarlett Johanson, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp are examples of Sexual Magnetism, while Oprah or Donald Trump or Churchill are examples of personal magnetism. You can have both, but one is usually more predominant then the other.
The difference between both, aside from the energy that generates then, is what others feel. With sexual magnetism, you’ll elicit feelings of sexuality. With personal mangetism, is more along the lines of feelings of admiration and being influenced by. They both require different kinds of training and exercises to cultivate, but once you develop one of them, the other one is usually much easier due to the awareness that you already have over the concept of energy.
So we defined a lot of concepts and different kinds of energies. Where does the Magnetic Gaze fits in? Is it charisma? Personal magnetism? Sexual Magnetism? What type of energy does it use?
The Magnetic Gaze is a whole system of esoteric development with techniques and methods where we transform our eyes into powerful communication and influence tools. It’s not exclusively personal magnetism development although it can be used to expand your personal magnetism as it works a great deal with our bodies energy, especially the tension energy. And it’s not only to develop your eyes… Although it obviously has a lot of focus in your eyes and gaze, it has a lot more focus on the energetical development.
It’s a personal magnetism system as much as an esoteric system to develop gaze, energy, brain and mind. It stands on it’s own as a full energetical development system.
