‘Tis the season to be jolly
The holidays are a time of warm feelings, family get-togethers. A time to reunify loving relationships.
They can also be a challenge.
People who are normally not prone to throwing energy tantrums can find themselves doing so. They may feel overwhelmed with feeling ‘not enough’ — not enough time to finish the shopping, write the cards, plan the meals, prepare for travel or visitors.
Crowded roadways, long lines and frenzied shopping can lead to emotional outbursts. Road rage can take over a person like entity possession, and be carried from the car into a store or home.
Metaphysics has long held that your thoughts and emotions, whether spoken or unspoken, even written, can transmit an unseen but tangible energy that can affect your mental and physical well-being. When these thought-feelings carry an emotional punch, they can be as real as physical muggers, out to do harm.
Miscommunication happens through email
If you’ve ever been the object of emotional outburst, whether by someone you know or don’t know, you may find it leaves you feeling fragile. Even the internet has become another playing ground for what you might call ’emotional muggers’.
Who are the emotional muggers online? Those who hide behind their perceived shield of either anonymity or distance, tend to ‘jump out’ of their dark corner to surprise their victims with scathing or demeaning email or forum comments and then run.
The internet world calls them flamers, trolls, or just plain cranks. They seem to be looking for ways to be offended no matter how you try to reason with them.
And if you do, you may find yourself feeling offended when normally you don’t have this problem. What’s going on here?
Are you who you hang with?
Just as in a physical community gathering, you come to know by experience those who have the habit of finding fault in almost everything, or seem to delight in repeating every perceived offense by others. Then there are those whose attacks are more overt.
To stay and even just listen can allow the negativity to steal your energy.
Silently joining in such discussion, or wondering what they might say about you behind your back, is not as mild as it seems. If you are sensitive, it then becomes about dealing with the emotional poltergeists or thought-form entities you may have picked up.
They can continue to plague you if you allow them
Normally such ‘crank’ or ‘flaming’ behavior is easy to spot, in physical gatherings or on the internet. And either way, if you engage with this energy, even by defending yourself, it can leave you feeling as abused or exhausted.
Your only defense is to disengage.
Better yet, don’t engage at all. Preserve the precious commodity of your energy by not joining in the negativity to begin with. Move on to another page or away from the computer. Physically walk away from haters, maligners, gossip mongers.
If you can’t just walk away, count to ten
What if you yourself feel rather passionate about an exchange? Can those who’ve pushed your emotional buttons be your teachers, or is your aim to be their teacher? Have they asked for your opinion or help?
Before deciding, you can condition yourself to respond by breathing through any emotional energy sent your way. Just do that until you know what–if anything–is the best response.
Use that moment of deep breathing to remind yourself that, whatever the provocation, you don’t have to be right. In fact there is no right or wrong opinion. It’s only yours or another’s perception that makes it so.
If you are still tempted to engage in a flaming physical or internet exchange, stop and ask yourself what are the possible ways the other person or persons can perceive your message. Ask why you really want to deliver it.
It your intent to help or harm? To hurt or heal? To shame or support? Ask yourself if it will make you feel better about yourself, or if any perceived control is even worth the loss of energy and maybe even public face.
Or is your message one to discuss the issue as two mature people who respect each other? Is it a simple acknowledgment of blessing?
With all communication, even if you intend to take your ego out of the equation and look for a way to find common ground, the other person may have no interest in this. Rather than continuing a futile conversation, you may decide to drop it.
If you do, it might help to remind yourself that this is really about another person who is feeling rather passionate about something and unable to control themselves. They may need your blessing, even a silent one.
Still arguing with psychic poltergeists?
If you still find yourself having a mental ‘conversation’ with your attacker, find time in a quiet place to heal the energy within and without. Simply breathe for five minutes.
That’s it, nothing more. Don’t worry about the thoughts. If they come back just breathe them out of your body.
Five minutes can seem a long time. But after a while you will find you are more engaged with the good feeling of your body. You can use this warm feeling to even recall a happy moment that always makes you smile.
Feel your energy field filling with that warmth. Realize you are activating your own unlimited and unconditional energy frequencies of love.
Then resolve to let go of the situation. Mentally tell the other person, ‘I release you to your good’. Feel the power of the light of your own breathing filling your aura with relief and soothing light.
Visualize or think of that light just dissolving any residual polterguiests or thought-form entities you may have picked up. If you’ve engaged in any actual or mental arguing, think of or see the scene dissolving in the field of light you generate with your breath.
The Gift of Self-Love
If you are sensitive and want to learn more about how to heal with emotional energy, I highly recommend Dr. Judith Orloff’s book, Guide to Intuitive Healing (my affiliate link to Amazon). Dr. Orloff is a renowned expert in emotional healing, and can help you identify if you are an ’emotional empath’.
She also helps you find ways to help yourself if you are overwhelmed by the world’s insensitivity. You can learn more now in her video on how to stop absorbing other people’s energy:
