What have you decided manipulation is … that it isn’t? What if you could actually use it to your advantage instead of against you?
Manipulations can actually be a way to facilitate people to choose something greater than they have been choosing. What if you could create more possibilities for you and everyone around you by looking at the thing you say and how you speak from a completely different point of view?
For example, manipulation with energy is about creating more ease in your life, in your business and in your money flows. Friends of mine have gorgeous twin babies who are too young to speak. These babies are so good at manipulating they get what they want almost instantaneously. That’s the kind of manipulation I’m talking about, manipulation with energy.
However, you must first give up all your judgments of manipulation. When it’s done for creation, manipulation can actually be an inspiration to people as it allows others to contribute to you. Here are some fun ways to manipulate.
Use Energetic Connections
Business is about creating a connection with people and this is really easy when you use energy pulls. Energetically, people function in four ways: as sceptics, fence-sitters, suckers and pushers.
- Those with a prove-it-to-me attitude: to create a connection with them you pull massive amounts of energy from them, to you, and through you
- Those with a neutral attitude: flow energy through you, to them, through them and then send trickles of energy back to you
- Those who suck energy: flow huge amounts of energy through you, to them, through them, until you feel a connection and then even out the flow
- Those who push energy at you: pull masses of energy though them, through you, and simultaneously flow trickles back to them
How do you flow energy? Just by asking – it’s truly that simple. You don’t have to stand there going, ‘Okay, this one’s a pusher, this one’s a sucker, what do I do?’ You simply ask to be whatever energy flow is required until everybody is connected to you whether at work, with prospective clients, or your family (energy flows work really well with kids too!).
Questions are one of the greatest manipulations. I’ve been in meetings where people were trying so hard to have their say they didn’t even hear each other. Rather than tell someone what they should do, what if you asked a question?
Every question is designed to take you out of fixed points of view and create a different outcome. It also allows others to give feedback and ask their own questions. Some great starting questions are, ‘what else is possible?’, ‘what are you aware of here?’ and ‘in what way would you like to contribute?’
You can use manipulation in your relationship in a way that is enjoyable, even though the person knows you’re manipulating them.
Ladies, if you desire a good relationship, put your arms around your man and you say: “Lover, will you do this for me?” Try it and see what happens. It makes it more fun and enjoyable for everyone!
