It's All About The Energy (Again!)
Following on from my previous post, what came to mind was an article I'd read in the Observer several months ago. A mother whose son suffered from ADHD was advised to be and act calm around him. At first she was reticient, her cultural background meant that she was passionate and high octane and what difference would it make if she changed.
Quite a lot as it happens.
She noticed that her son's behaviour calmed down as hers did. She was reluctant to admit it, but her behaviour was having an effect on her son and a detrimental one at that. In fact, losing your temper and shouting at a child with ADHD actually makes it worse for them.
But rather than focus on ADHD as such, what this illustrated to me is the pivotal importance of centering and maintaining your own energy and connection and seeing how this influences the energy of others around us.
We are all connected
Self help gurus and mystics often state that: "We are all connected". It is true. We may know this intellectually, but it isn't until we do the energy work that we actually feel the depth of that truth.
As I've been doing the energy work consistently and started clearing my energy on a whole bunch of painful issues, as my energetic channels have become clearer and clearer, I've noticed how this has impacted on the people around me and the way I approach and think about different situations.
Mahatma Gandhi once said: "Be the change you want to see". Wayne Dyer says: "When you change the way you look at something, what you look at will change".
It's very easy and very acceptable to blame others for our problems, but others are just a mirror of ourselves. You can guarantee that whatever we don't like in others is merely our movie projection as to what we don't like in ourselves. If we can clear ourselves of that energy from our field then that person's mannerisms or behaviour no longer have the ability to "press our buttons". In fact our feelings about them is just information and tells us what we need to do for ourselves.
