So, from most of the reading I have been doing while recovering from a pretty savage flu, it seems that one of the very most important things that we need to do or learn is to improve our emotional tone and flow. It sounds like it is going to be pretty important to us in the future at the big wake-up.
Energy Follows Thought: Emotionally empowered thought creates absolutely and almost immediately in your environment.
I wanted to write about some emotional Ninja skills I’ve picked up just from playing around with a few ideas in my life over the years. Realize that every emotionally toned thought you send out comes back to you, magnified for your learning purposes. That means aggravation begets aggravation, snipes beget snipes. Did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed? Are you putting out those feelings to any and all who get within ten feet of you? Was your day one of those that went from bad to worse? Feelings are fine, what you do with them is more important. The first step to de-constructing what looks like a bad day ahead, is to get in touch with your feelings and say, “Ok, I feel (insert emotion) but I refuse to visit it on everybody else, so I will choose to work this out later when I can, and temper all my reactions and responses today, knowing I want to wring anybody’s neck I can get a hold of.” In the same manner, understanding begets understanding, and empathy begets empathy and so on for love, joy, happiness….
A good way to practice this principle and have some fun doing it is observing your Car Karma….
A common place that we all feel frustration and sometimes rage is in the car. Once again, feelings are inevitable, it’s what you do with them that counts. So the game goes like this: Turn on an energy ball of peace around your car, one that extends out about 4 feet in every direction to the exterior of the car. Then, monitor your thoughts about the drivers around you. Instead of driving down the road as a blistering ball of fury, can you create a ball of energetic flow (peace) around your car while observing the efficiency of this effect by getting to your destination earlier? Trust me this works. It also helps prevent accidents. The energetic ball of flow tends to wake you up, and you avoid a lot of minor irritants that way. I got this idea one day while driving down the street and getting blasted by a nasty wave of rage from a driver going the opposite way. My kids were young and I was being safe and I put white light around the car often. Then it occurred to me that I could protect myself from unwanted incursions of others messy emotions AND slip through the traffic flow easier, if I just put that thought around my car. WOOT! It worked wonders.
Manifesting as proof that your thoughts can and do have an effect on your immediate life.
Another fun way to play with this concept is to image in your head the parking spot you want at your destination and getting it. This is simple proof that your thoughts are things that effect your life instantaneously. It works scary good and it only involves yourself and your thought and the desire (emotion) for a good parking spot. (I know that this is an old game, but practicing it actually creates a skill level…)
Create your own games.
Treat energy as a concrete thing, power your thought with emotion and watch what happens. When I first discovered this game I used to lob white light at everybody and every thing just to watch the results. Then I began the deeper game of adding and modifying my emotions in the mix. I learned quite a lot at that point.
Platitudes and memes.
These are all thought bites, Zen smacks, to bump you out of your non-awareness. They might work for thirty seconds or so… What will really teach the HOW and WHY this works is by actively playing with it and watching the results. Play is fun and it is the easiest way to learn. It makes you a stealth-ninja-energy-follows-thought-impelled-by-emotion expert. 🙂 so go PLAY!
