What filters are you using to protect yourself from the thousand bits of information which hits you daily?
" What do you do with¬†the information and feelings that you receive all day long? The manager who 'deals' with you; the FB messages you read; the body language¬† of those you can't stand but words are not exchanged; the terrible news of child trafficking; ¬†the news of death and beheadings in countries you don't know about; ¬†the dishonesty of people we trust wholeheartedly; ¬†a glimpse of what you could have become if only you made a different choice; ¬†the life lessons from someone else's book; the¬†advice from those close to you; the rivalry between siblings; the sudden death of a family member; the things you heard about someone else but never experienced yourself; the rejection from someone you held dearly to your heart; the job opportunity which you did not get¬† - it is a hell of a lot of stuff to tune in to! It has been proven¬†that emotions trump logic all the time! Most of the time, we think we make logical decisions but unless we apply the filters to diffuse emotions, we cannot come to logical conclusions. We are loaded with emotions and even though they are not expressed, we carry them around us all day long.¬† The things that happen to us or does not happen to us are often related to our emotional vibrations. Writing this reminds me of my experience with an absolutely gorgeous woman who told me she believes that she is an ugly person because she was told so repeatedly as a child by her parents.¬†Even when she grew up to be beautiful, she has not been able reverse the emotional damage which was done to her and it still affects her present¬†life, 60 years later!¬† Does this sound crazy to you?¬† Well, it is not! Do you know that sometimes an emotional memory of something which happened many, many years ago can still control your reactions to¬† your current life? How do we filter it all out and decide what to feed our mind, spirit and soul with?¬† Does the information and vibes we receive from others all day long remain stored in¬†our emotional memory?¬† Do you notice how you feel at the end of the day?¬† Are you sad?¬†Anxious?¬† Happy?¬† Fulfilled? Unfulfilled? An emotional wreck?¬† Do you have control about what you consciously allow into your system? A few days ago, I saw a dear friend whom I had not seen for¬† about 6 years.¬† She always filled me with high doses of beautiful, positive energy.¬† As we held hands, I could feel that positive energy from her infusing my body with positive light.¬† When I left her, I felt that I had received an¬†infusion of positive energy which has left a smile on my face and a warmth in my heart.¬† This mood has continued for several days now and made me realize how much I missed her! Can you put your finger on exactly what leads you to your overall mood at the end of the day?¬† Are you living in your past?¬† In the present? Everything and everyone sends an energy wave towards us and sometimes we embrace that energy without even realizing it. When we look at an inspiring sight or a painting - it gives us energy without speaking to us!¬† That is why we leave feeling inspired.¬† However, you can only feel inspired if your emotional body is open to receiving this positive energy.¬† The energy we receive - negative or positive -¬†remains stored in our mental and emotional body until something triggers it. ¬† This emotion, if not managed, can eventually turn you into something you were never meant to be.¬† It happens quietly overtime.... and then one day, you may find yourself asking: ""What happened to my life?"" ""How did I end up in this situation?""¬† If you look back, you will realize that there are many small dots that connect.... and it is all about our emotional energy which translates into physical positive or negative vibes which further translates into physical manifestations in our bodies and generally into our lives. TuneIn to consciously choose what you want to be present in your life. Trust?¬† Love?¬† Peace? Fulfillment? Good, healthy conversations?¬† Good friends?¬†A supportive network? Kind words? Are the activities which ¬†you are currently engaged with provide you with those outcomes? We ¬†have a choice about what¬†we let in and out of our¬†lives and sometimes we have to StepUp and let go of some of the things that drain us. Unfortunately it may include people who are in our lives, some aspects of the media, re-framing our jobs; re-thinking our career paths or even making some rebellious decisions to start a new life pattern.¬† We many need to say a¬†firm NO to the things that do not support our life choices and a firm YES to the things¬†we truly want to bring into our lives. Whatever it is, remember that your spirit is always longing to be touched with kindness and gentleness. Be well.¬† Protect yourself.¬† Trust your vibes.¬† Take control of living the life which YOU want to live. Love, Magdalene"
