AngelicView: This article made me think. I feel as though I “throw” around positive energy everywhere I go, and have for as long as I can remember. But I haven’t always felt as though positivity was “thrown back” at me from other people. This, though, seems to be changing.
For example, I burned up four hours of my life yesterday between the doctor’s office, the lab, and the pharmacy (spreading positive vibes – even through my misery). And I noticed something different about the people I encountered. People were friendly, talkative, respectful, and smiling!
Working as a nurse, I deal with the public on a daily basis. However, the people and visitors that are in the hospital are living in extraordinary circumstances in their lives. #1: they just had a baby (happy!). #2: their baby is sick (sad!). And so it’s hard for me to tell what’s really going on with people that I see at work.
Now, on to the article by Jim Self: Throwing Energy
How do you respond to an unexpected situation? Do you absorb it and let it affect you physically or emotionally? Do you internalize it as stress? Do you react and complain? Are you sarcastic? Demanding? Do you cut the person off at the knees and reject them? (All third dimensional reactions/) And then how do you respond when someone else reacts and throws energy?
Do you match them, go down to their level, and throw back? Or do you take a break and see that they are revealing a great deal about their own pain? Pain speaks very loudly sometimes.
Email exchanges can be a fun place for watching energy being thrown, and for watching if you throw it, too. Emails to businesses are somewhat “anonymous,” and therefore easy to hide behind. Notice if you forget there may be real live people with feelings (and intense issues going on in their office) on the other side of that “send” button. Apologizing for your lousy behavior can be more difficult than managing it in the first place. The drafts folder is there for a reason. Write it once, save it, and read it out loud later.
How are you presenting yourself?
Machine Gun Irritation. Send a progression of five complaining emails, minutes apart (around midnight is best), each expecting an instant response. Be sure each one gets louder and bolder and redder and nastier. No need to apologize for your behavior when you are helped that afternoon. You are the customer after all.
Cut Them Off at the Knees. Complain and threaten to quit and “take them to court” if you don’t get your money back. You’ll get faster help and maybe extra gifts.
Sarcasm. It is very easy to throw this energy in emails. If the recipient calls you on it, you can always blame the innate troubles of email communication.
Poor Me. Act like a victim. “I’ve just lost my job/house/mind. I have cancer/leprosy/ emergency.” If you can make them feel sorry for you (it is not your fault you are in this situation), you might get extra attention, scholarships, and free gifts.
Hider. When the unexpected situation arises, do not do anything at all. It was probably your mistake/misunderstanding/bad vibes that caused it. Go eat some chocolate and drink a beer. The company is probably too busy to bother with you anyway.
Ripples on a Still Lake. When one throws energy, it creates a ripple effect. This is very much like the concentric circles that form when you toss a pebble into a still lake. Ripples are created that move out to touch and influence others. If I were to punch you (throw negative energy at you), you might turn to the man sitting next to you and punch him. He then turns to the woman sitting next to him and insults her. She carries that energy around with her until she gets home. She then yells at her son, who then kicks the dog, who then… you get the picture.
Because I began that ripple by throwing energy at you, it is my responsibility to clean it up. Not an easy thing to do when, by the next day, tens of people (or more) have been affected by my rippling energy.
We have all thrown energy at others in our lives. During this time of Shift, it is now urgently important to become aware of and change this habit in ourselves. It is possible to master every thought, every emotion, and every action. Every moment.
Your job is to be a big, solid boulder in the rippling lake. You are the boulder that keeps the ripple from continuing to touch others. The master neither passes the energy along to others, nor absorbs it into her space. The master transmutes the thrown energy and gives it back to the giver in a higher vibration of kindness, upliftment, and grace.
First, be the example of what you want to experience more of.
