We often hear, “what goes around comes around” or my all time favourite, “Karma saw that”.
Let’s explore this a little deeper, what happens when we are harmed ? The normal reaction is, we start focussing on energy in being angry, hurt or resentful. The consequence is, we end up either cursing those people or wishing them ill – thereby creating a negative energy in ourselves.
Energy exists within us and around us. Scientists describe every as an indirect quantity observed in physics. Einstein describes it best as , “Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy.”
Through our thoughts, we have the ability to create a positive or a negative energy fields. I remember my grandmother saying, “if there are constant fights, yelling and shouting in a particular home, the negativity embeds itself in every nook and corner in the house”. If you’ll look back, you’ll find that some places make you feel low or depressed. This can even happen with a group of people or certain people – post speaking with them, you just feel drained. People who live in the negative space constantly, have the ability to draw the negative energy more forcefully than the positive. They thrive in this dark space. It’s not uncommon to find people who are prone to spreading malicious rumours or repeating hurtful incidents about others lives, get along very well those who enjoy listening and spreading them further – they both relate on a energy which is negative.
Energy patterns can be changed. While they are a part of our own energy fields and auras, they are deeply connected with our thoughts. Be careful of your thoughts. Catch and nip the negative thoughts in bud. If you find it hard maybe because you grew up in a place which had either constant chaos or negativity, practice saying positive affirmations to yourself. It’s important to look at your childhood, at your growing up conditioning, this is the time when the core belief system gets formed. Examine, what is it that you carry in your baggage.
Unfortunately, stagnancy has the same effect. If you find yourself stuck in a situation be it personal or professional or are constantly in repetitive patterns that don’t allow you to move ahead – take a good look at your surroundings – at your own routine and go deeper look at those of people closely connected with you. Numbing yourself with electronic media or the internet also causes stagnancy. Remember to disconnect every now and then and step outside your comfort zones in order to get things (energy) moving again. It’s no
Detach yourself from thoughts that take you towards hopelessness or a sense if feeling victimised. The thing about negative energy is, it affects you the most. By the time you release the energy, it has started diluting but the maximum effect/residue will be on you.
Surround yourself with people who are supportive, positive and grateful towards life.
We can choose to create our happiness, simply by changing the way we think, we feel. It feels a little strange in the beginning and it’s also not to be confused with “hope” – it’s creating an energy of movement, of a field around you which has love and compassion in it. Use the law of attraction. Write your own story – a happy one.
Lastly, practice gratitude. For every little thing – be grateful, it’ll hold you in good stead.
You are not here to suffer. And happiness requires hard work.
