Last week I talked about high and low energy which is a state of being for me. My physical energy is generally high when things go well; like winning a contest. For example, my favorite team is the Chicago Bears. A few years ago, I went to a Sunday night game in Champaign, Illinois when Soldier Field was being renovated in Chicago. I left for the 200-mile trip home at the start of the 4th quarter with the Bears leading. My energy was high. Halfway home I stop to get gas. When I got back in the car the game was over; They lost. My energy dropped immediately. I felt so tired, almost to the point of pulling over and taking a nap.
On the other hand, positive and negative energy is more emotional with an element of intent. It could be conscious or unconscious. I believe it is a choice. You might ask, how could it be a choice if unconscious? In my September 22 post, I mentioned entering a Harley-Davidson dealership feeling negative energy. To deal with situations like that I had to ask myself where these feelings are coming from. Then ask what if I looked at the situation differently.
Someone told me that people bring their weather with them. It is another way of saying; you get what you expect. Philosophers call it the law of attraction. It is the belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life. In my opinion this definition has validity, but not a universal truth. Somethings happen to people that they wouldn’t wish on their worst enemy. Nevertheless, taking charge of our thoughts, feelings and actions can go a long way to helping us create positive energy in our lives. A spiritual leader once said, “What you think, you become. What you imagine, you create. What you feel, you attract.” Be the energy you want to attract.
