We are at the crossroads of change. Being a crossroads means we have a choice of which direction to take. We can choose the path of denial and despair or the one of love and gratitude. That choice is often determined by where we place our focus.
You would think it’s a no-brainer for us to choose the positive, love energy. But the more people who focus and send out the hate/fear energy the more this builds and the harder it is not to become embroiled in. For anyone Sensitive, this low-level energy, that has swept the globe, is agonizing to experience. But it can also be perversely alluring; drawing us in without our realizing.
I too have been lured into engaging the distressing and emotionally provoking news, designed to distract, divide and enrage. And yes, I get wound up by it all. I keep having to remind myself to unplug and stay switched off from it. No good comes from occupying the mind with such negatively charged news.
Some might argue that we have a duty to stay informed, we should fight for our rights and silence is consent. And as much as I may agree with that, most of what we are being fed is shameful propaganda, which does nothing but feeds our darkest emotions and pains the soul.
When we focus on the incredible force of gratitude and love it is a game changer. You see more and more positive come into your life. This amazing energy is all around us, we just need to take our eyes off the distractions and diversions to realize it.
By not giving our attention to anything which feeds negative emotions, we can free ourselves and then take our focus to the more positive. Choosing to stay unplugged is the best form of protection at this time. Especially if you are badly affected by all the hysterical energy.
Here are some excellent ways to stay unplugged:
Stay away from the media: Online news, social media, and televised news reports can lure you into negative thinking, frustration, and anger.
Avoid politics: Don’t get involved in dogmatic discussions and avoid those who seem to thrive when politically venting.
Steer clear of large groups of people or protests: Mass hysteria is contagious and drags everyone in, even those with the best intentions.
Pursue your passions: Do what you love and be creative as often as you can (your own form of distraction).
Express gratitude every day throughout the day: Be grateful for anything you can. A delicious meal, a good book, film or just the traffic lights being on the green. Keep pumping this positive energy out.
Keep control of the mind: Meditate or perform moving meditations like yoga, Tai-chi or dance.
Get outdoors: Spend as much time in nature as possible and bask some natural sunlight.
Pain serves us in mysterious ways. We eventually come to a point when we understand why we endured all we have, and we recognize how our pain shaped and changed us for the better. But we don’t need to keep experiencing it over and over. We have a choice. Now is the time to start shaping your new reality by unplugging from the old.
Until next time.
