I have been noticing the way communication on social media and also in real life has been changing. People react very impulsively, and where people used to be understanding and communicating their opinion and listening to the argumentation of the other person, there is now a tendency to be radically for or against something without any compromise.
The chaos you experience on the outside is a perfect opportunity to go inside and learn more about yourself.
Are you reacting or responding to anything that is brought into your field?
REACTING is an emotional answer, usually influenced by a trigger caused by an old wounding or trauma. A wound, respectively a trauma, is a time capsule where the original emotion and the feelings of the wounding is stored in. The time capsule can be found in our energy field or even hidden in the physical body. It carries a specific vibration and every time we experience a situation, person or place which carries a similar vibration like the original wounding, we fall back into the time/space matrix of the moment in our life when the wounding happened and react accordingly, like the wounded 8 year old, for example. That’s why a reaction often seems inappropriate or exaggerated to others. We literally jump back into the moment of the age when we were hurt the first time.
Once the wounding has been cleared, we are able to process what the other person tried to communicate or the news broadcast had released, reflect and compare it with our own belief system. We are then also open and able to adapt our beliefs where necessary and change our views upon reviewing the facts. Only then we can RESPOND in a reflected, understanding and loving way and even if we don’t agree with something (it’s our free will what to we choose to believe and what not), we can still acknowledge the effort of the other person to openly stating their personal truth.
When we react, we operate from fight or flight modus, thus we increase our adrenal flow which puts our system under stress. When we feel empowered, centered and grounded, we can respond from a sovereign position and in a state of calmness.
Whenever you feel the urge to reply immediately, take a moment to reflect whether it is an emotional trigger you are reacting to. Observe yourself how the message made you feel and whether there is some deeper meaning to it. Take a look at it from a third person perspective, observe the feelings and emotions that bubble up to the surface. Do not ignore them, acknowledge them and let them move through your body and finally out when you are ready to let them go. The more you practice it, the more you will be in your center and grounded and the less the chance that you get emotionally triggered.
What you focus on, your energy moves to.
Now that we have understood the difference between reacting and responding, we can again observe ourselves what we focus on. Do we follow the mainstream media which has the goal to spread mostly negative news? Are we attracted to all kind of gossip and rumors? Do we complain about what is happening and feel powerless? Or do we see what is going on around us, acknowledge it and stay a passive observer? Are we able to hold our light inside while the world outside is rapidly changing?
Your inner world creates your outer reality. Whatever energy you are (unconsciously) sending out from within will be reflected in your outer reality. That’s why we often attract people, things and circumstances that we don’t want and we can’t understand why the same things are happening to us again and again.
If we feel unworthy of becoming abundant and financially independent, we will never be able to succeed in a career or make a decent income. If we believe that we are unworthy of love and respect, we will always attract people in our life that will use and disrespect us. Always remember, we are creator beings, and it is in our power to create our own reality. But to be able to do so with the desired results, we first have to work on our inner world and clean out everything which doesn’t serve us.
We are not victims but creator beings!
This is a quote from one of my favorite books. Randy Pausch was soon going to die, and he held a last lecture at his university before he died. He was a wonderful and wise man. I can highly recommend you to read the book or watch it on youtube.
“If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised by how well things can work out… Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
He understood. We are not victims, but creator beings and we can choose how we want to live and what we want to attract in life. It is all about vibrations and what kind of energy we are (unconsciously) sending out (and therefore pulling into our life). By complaining and staying in the loop of negative feelings, your situation will not change. As long as you hold the energy of fear, anxiety, failure, low self-esteem, being a loser, etc. you will attract exactly this response from others, and you will experience one failure after the other. The worst is that every new negative experience will confirm your negative thoughts about yourself.
So, what to do about it? Once again, pay attention to your thoughts and feelings. Do not ignore, suppress or deny them. Allow yourself to feel them and observe yourself what comes up in this moment. When you catch yourself going into a destructive thought pattern, consciously stop the thoughts and think of the best possible outcome. Keep doing this as long as those thoughts keep coming up, which can take quite a while until your brain has really gotten the message.
Always remember Joe Dispenza’s saying:
“When an individual’s heart is in a state of coherence or harmonious rhythm, it radiates a more coherent electromagnetic signal into the environment – and that this signal can be detected by the nervous systems of other people.”
Whatever you are sending out, you will receive back.
