“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…” ~ Dr. Seuss
Sitting in a conversation and trying to make sense of what is really happening. Do you know that feeling? You are in the same place, having a cup of coffee together with friend, work colleagues and it seems to be a nice conversation, but why doesn’t it feel like it. That was happening to me the other day. It seemed to be a day like no other. The group of people that where together I know for a very long time and it was a nice topic to talk about. Still you could sense that something was up. Not sure what, people where smiling, exchanging compliments you would think nothing was wrong. I took a step back and notice that underneath the complements and smile there was a lot more going on. What feelings were being triggered here? It was not a safe place at all. On a completely different level there were psychic kicks being delivered and you could see that some where trying to keep up with it all not really understanding what was going on as well.
We can’t see this part of ourselves, but together with body and mind it makes up our whole being. And every time we interact with others in a visible way, tangible way, on the level of the spirit an invisible exchange of energy is taking place too. This is when we talk about our day and start describing our day. The people we have met and interacted with. We use phrases as; She’s being pushy, The whole group was held hostage by his behavior, I made a suggestion but I was shot down. With our words we are able to describe what has happened or what has happened afterwards. We simple don’t feel well when we live or work in environment like this and in the long run we will get really ill.
If we look at the cultures of indigenous cultures, we can learn from them that there is a difference between sending negative energy and merely expressing it. WHen someone is expressing his or her anger without sending out that poison arrow to any one, he or she is just acknowledging the feeling that are being experienced. At this time and age we are not aware any more about the invisible and shoot our arrows unconsciously. This is way we don’t realize that we are harming other around us. It is important to express your feelings, because otherwise you are harming yourself as well. In the next few weeks, I’ll be writing about how your can shift this energy within you and around you. For this moment just observe what is happing in you daily live. It is not what we do that changes the world, it is who we become.
