This morning I met a vampire that would have sucked my energy dry had I not recognized its true nature. This afternoon I sat at the foot of a wise man who restored my faith in humanity. There was much to learn from both.
Last week I was on the receiving end of a petty tyrant’s onslaught. In general, I have lately been surrounded by many under the influence of prolonged financial anxiety and fear of the unknown.
Several times a month, a mischievous brownie attempts to wreak havok in the tranquil pool of my existence. Unlike other brownies who prefer to gift their favors unseen in the dark of night and the wee hours of the morning, this brownie screams for my attention and delights in interrupting my deepest creative flow (for more information visit):
Back to the Vampire: Directly after the vampire ripped its fangs out of my neck, I turned on the radio in an attempt to change my energy and swim back down into A Day In the Life…and was gifted with this message (paraphrased), “…An ambiguous friend can cause stress. Studies have shown increased stress levels including high blood pressure [and aggravation] occur when time is spent with ambiguous friends or friends that cause as many bad feelings as good.”
Reflections On The Day:
- What do you feel like right now (e.g. Do you feel energized, sad, peaceful, angry, lethargic, bored)?
- Who was the last person you interacted with and how did the interaction affect you?
- Did you notice a pleasant or unpleasant physical sensation during or after the interaction (e.g. butterflies, lightheadedness, joy, racing heart, elevated pulse or blood pressure, shortness of breath, tightening of muscles, headache) ?
The above are all opportunities to learn more about yourself and consciously notice how you react to specific people, places, things, concepts throughout the day. Once you start paying attention to your cellular reactions you can start choosing to be around those people, places or things that make you feel good, healthy and in alignment with your higher purpose.
At the risk of sounding as if I know more about physics than I really do, I believe I can safely say: Everything in the universe is made up of energy and energy is continually shifting from one form to another (for more information, visit):
I learned of Einstein’s Conservation of Mass Energy Theory (E=mc2) in school and am reminded of it daily life as I interact with the world around me and physically, emotionally, and energetically react to all that I come into contact with. Choosing to live a conscious life is as simple as noticing what you’re experiencing at any given moment.
