Serge Kahili King, Ph.D. is the author of many works on Huna and Hawaiian shamanism, including Urban Shaman and Instant Healing. He has a doctorate in psychology. In his book, Endless Energy ( draws on the indigenous historical wisdom of the Hawaiian people in describing profound practices for energy expansion. These practices induce immediate mini-experiences of the Overview Effect and openness to Collaborative Innovation; Awe, Wonder, Possibility, Acceptance and Belonging for yourself and others.

Great advice comes from George Leonard in his life-altering book, Mastery
“The most successful path to mastering anything is to practice for the sake of the practice itself, not for the result. All significant learning is composed of brief spurts of progress followed by long periods of work where it feels as if you are stuck on a plateau. There are no experts–only learners.”

ENERGY PRACTICE ONE: Energy flows where attention goes (1)
“If we want to change something, the best to shift our attention. Attention to the wrong place is what creates the difficulty, and attention can turn the base metal of looking for answers in the wrong place into the gold of insight.”

ENERGY PRACTICE TWO: The world is what you think it is. (2)
“Every moment, we filter the world through everything we have ever learned and experienced. At no point in your life will you ever interact with the ‘real’ world. Expectations, the world, and all else are filtered by internal experience. If you think work is going to be hell, it probably will be.””

ENERGY PRACTICE THREE: Now is the moment of power (3)
“All energy exists now. The definition of ‘now’ of course, depends on the range of our current attention. According to this principle, what we call the ‘past’ is a collection of currently existing energetic patterns of memory, somewhat like the information stored on the hard drive of a computer. What we call the ‘future’ is a collection of currently existing energetic patterns of expectation, somewhat like the plans and projections stored on the hard drive of a computer.”

ENERGY PRACTICE FOUR: There are no limits. (4)
“Energy has no limits. Energy is endless, unlimited. This makes sense only if you believe that everything at its core is energy. This leads to the possibility that everything is connected energetically, and patterns influence other patterns through this connection.”

“Concerning matter, we have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” Albert Einstein

ENERGY PRACTICE FIVE: All power comes from within. (5)
“All power (energetic influence) comes from within, from the energetic source. Not simply from within you as an individual, but from your connections to the rest of the world. All of the power in your life comes through you. There is nothing outside of you that has any power over you. Everything, however, has power. The power of the tree comes from within the tree. The power of the clouds comes from within the clouds. We influence each other. It’s like being able to influence someone by speaking to them.”

ENERGY PRACTICE SIX: Effectiveness is the Measure of Truth.(6)
The practice is to assume that the effectiveness of energetic interaction is the measure of the truth about the interaction. A different way to put this is to say that expectations are only valid to the degree that they match results.
