Newsletter #38, February 2021: Is What I’m Feeling Coming from Me, or Others?


Energy is all around us. We all emit energy – to different degrees – and of different strengths and qualities. And all the energy swirling around can be felt by others. Harsh, strong energies emit far and wide, and we can easily pick them up. Gentle energies also emit, but they have a shorter reach.  Because of their gentler nature, these don't bother us, however, sensitive people do pick up on them more easily.  It is sometimes hard to distinguish if what we are feeling is coming from within us, or from outside us. This year, with all the repercussions of the coronavirus, we've felt more vulnerable. This has caused us to become more emotionally sensitive, allowing us to be more negatively affected by the energies outside of us. However ...., Not all that we are feeling – or have been feeling – this past year may belong to us. This past year has been a monstrous attack on all areas of our life. And we have all been affected in different ways – and to different degrees. We may have had to deal with real-life situations, like keeping someone safe, losing a loved one, or having our livelihood affected. Or, we may have become stressed, angry, fearful, frustrated – or even fallen into dysfunction. However, all of what we feel doesn’t always belong to us. There is an invisible energy thread that connects us all – that connects everyone to everyone. It is because of this connection that we sometimes pick up on another’s energy, or on the atmosphere around us. I’m sure you have experienced this at some point in time when walking into a room where the atmosphere was palpable – where it felt positive and uplifting or negative and heavy. What Emits Positive Energy Uplifts Us What Emits Negative Energy Depletes Us To feel good, positive, and hopeful, we must ensure our thoughts, feelings, attitudes, reactions, and behaviors are positive. We must also ensure that what we expose our self to has positive energy around it. That it uplifts us. Stress, anger, fear, frustration, doubt, conflict, judgment, etc. all hold negative energy. These deplete us. However, acknowledging and allowing for any negative feelings we are experiencing is healthy. Burying our feelings puts up blocks to connecting to the good feelings and other benefits of Universal flow. Having said that, holding on to our feelings or frustrations for longer than the time it takes to process them or to figure out if – and what action needs to be taken is counterproductive. It creates a negative energy field within us that we must consciously break out of. We Can Create Negative Energy; We Can Also Pick It Up from Around Us As well as creating a negative energy field by allowing our inner feelings and emotions to percolate, we can also negatively affect our energy field by our habits, such as: What we focus on – television or videos we watch, the music we listen to, games [...]
