Do You Take Your Expertise For Granted?

I’ve had an epiphany of sorts over that last week or so. Many of you have downloaded the Energetics of Attraction report and were either on the live teleclass calls, or listened to the MP3 recordings of them. If you haven’t, you can go get your free Energetics of Attraction Resource Package here:

But that’s not the reason for this post. No, there’s something much more interesting.

As I’ve been preparing to launch the new Energetics of Attraction Intensive – writing the report, leading the teleclasses, creating the curriculum and handouts, setting up the web pages – I’ve come to realize the extent to which I take my knowledge of the Human Energy Systems for granted!

I’ve been thrilled about the launch of this new program, but after reading through some of the questions that have come in and a phone conversation I had with one of my Mastermind Partners – a long-term Personal Development and Law of Attraction practitioner – I finally got that my understanding of and experience with the Human Energy Systems is rare, even in the personal development world.

I’ve been intensively studying the Human Energy Systems for over 12-years and sometimes I just forget that the knowledge and skills I possess are totally foreign to many (most?) people.

A while back, my friend Dawud Miracle started an interesting conversation by asking: Are You An Expert if You Can’t Share What You know?

It’s an important question. But before you can even get to that question, there’s another one that needs to be asked:

Are you an expert if you don’t acknowledge that you are?

We all have expertise. Every single one of you reading this is an expert at something. But because you are an expert at it – because it has become easy for you – you may well not even notice it.

A bird would not acknowledge that it was an expert flyer. He just flies!

A fish would not acknowledge that it was an expert swimmer. She just swims!

You probably don’t acknowledge that you’re an expert walker or breather or eater. But you are!

Of course you are an expert at other things as well, things that may not be quite so universal as walking or breathing!

But do you acknowledge your expertise? Do you accept that something you do is unique. Or do you take it for granted because it now comes so easily to you?

I learned my lesson. With over 12-years of active, intensive study into the practical applications of the Human Energy Systems I have achieved a high level of mastery. But as Dawud asked, “Am I an expert if I can’t share that knowledge?”

There is no definite, universal answer to that question. But for me, the answer is a resounding No!

After all, what use is mastery if it’s not shared?

So I have made a conscious decision to ramp up the level at which I share my knowledge of the Human Energy Systems.

The Energetics of Attraction Resource Package was the first step.

And the next step is the 6-week program: Basic Energy Awareness Skills for Deliberate Creators.

Where is your expertise? What unique wisdom, talent, knowledge or ability do you have that you take for granted?

Perhaps it is time for you to claim your expert status and share your wisdom with the world!

      Hi Ed,

      This concept really resounds with me. I am a photographer & use LOA extensively in my business. I sometimes get vibrationally out of sync and start to feel less secure about my skills. I think photography comes so naturally for me that I forget how many people can not create what I create. When those insecure feelings hit, I need to remember that I AM an expert.

      I was on both of your teleclasses, and really enjoyed them. I’ve been using neutral seperation on a daily basis. Thank you for all the fantastic tools you provided!

      So funny – I was just thinking about this! It’s all too easy to get into thinking that what “comes naturally” to me just comes naturally to everyone else… or that it’s natural, per se, and not the result of years of time, training, and hard work.

      Or then there’s the “nobody else is going to care about this but me” or “nobody’s really going to be interested in this”. Such was the case with the site I just launched. I almost didn’t start it at all, but the response has been overwhelming… just so far.

      Sharing knowledge is another way to celebrate abundance in our lives.

      What a terrific article. It is something that I have done often in the past and that is underestimate the skills and expertise that I have to offer others. Jim Edwards states that prior to going into a joint venture we all should make a list of our skills so that we know what we might have to offer others when in a partnership. Perhaps something that we should do on a regular basis.

    Got something to say?
