We can use anything in a good way or a bad way. The actual thing used remains the same no matter our intention. Consider how a weapon can be used to kill or protect. The weapon that kills is the same weapon before and after the act that kills. It is what we do with it that makes a difference. It is the same principle with vibrational energy. It is there to be used but it can be used in both directions. What we do with it matters.
Human beings use energy in every breathing moment. We use it to create our reality and that reality can be positive or negative. For example, we can create anger or get angry at a situation or person. But anger has a powerful resonance that will affect you by emitting a negative feeling. If it is aimed at a person, they will unconsciously receive it.
The pool of all human consciousness that acts like a collector of similar resonance will increase in strength. This pool of anger then reflects back onto humanity, making people feel deeper, that which might have been a minor irritation. Make no mistake, in this situation, the anger you created has just increased in strength within you. It will grow and express itself in situations that previously did not make you angry. You become the product of your thoughts.
So, what do we do?
In this scenario, we don’t do anger. That’s the one thing that we don’t do.
But how do we NOT do that which we have become such an expert at doing? It takes practice, almost like a new hobby. You are learning whole new ways of being. I shall keep with the same analogy of anger, or let’s say road rage as a more specific aspect.
First, be aware of all aspects of your road rage. Do you say things to yourself? I bet he is going to cut me up, or he did that on purpose! Do you see the offending driver as a demon with your inner vision?
Notice the inner-feelings, spot where they live within you. This is a big step! You are now noticing the process of what is happening rather than being the product of the emotion.
Now, being aware of exactly how this is affecting us, we can do something different. We plan that change in advance by rehearsing a new inner-speech and a new inner-vision, both of which will lead to neutralising that crippling gut emotion we all feel when angry (or afraid).
So, just as an example, you might cut short the inner-speak when it starts like a worn-out record and change it into a positive statement. The statement can be neutral, like:
I better hold back. That driver needs space.
Or my personal favourite:
I bless that driver so that he may proceed safely for himself and others.
Change the inner image. Again, by rehearsal: With your inner eye picture the driver as somebody you are close to or know well. Put your awareness into your lower stomach and pay attention to your breathing.
If you do this, you will break the old pattern that leads to the heightened emotions of anger or rage. The anger will not happen, and you will have lightened your bodies negative emotional load. You will have lowered the universal load of anger, helping humanity regain its natural positive nature.
Working on, and neutralising, negative emotions is a huge step towards clearing our spiritual pathway. A huge step also for deeper meditational experience. In a future article, I will take this one step further by focusing on forgiveness.
