Positive Energy



I've been thinking about energy lately. The kind of energy that unites souls. Some people call it animal magnetism or auras but I think there’s more to it than that. Besides, animal magnetism doesn't really apply to heterosexual, same-sex friends, does it?

Perhaps our greatest human strength is not physical.

Think about the last time you sat in a car and stared into another car. Did the passenger or driver look back? Coincidence right? Maybe not. Maybe it’s your energy? Are we ready to acknowledge our innate wireless connections? Have you ever showed up at someone’s house only to be told they are so glad you came and they were just about to call you and invite you over? Maybe you got there just in time to cheer them up or save them from a house fire because you noticed they left the stove on.

While quantum physicists are explaining their theories regarding atomic connected-ness, I’m thinking about it all the time. I don’t need the theory of relativity to tell me we’re related.

I remember Christmas shopping in a store that gave me bad vibes. By the time I left, I had accidentally cut myself on the sharp-edged counter and was bleeding profusely. Was it something they sold? Was it the building? Was it the people who worked there? Why did I feel so uncomfortable and why did I end up punished in a sense, for not liking their store? Sure, it seems silly to take it personally and yet there was a definite feeling hanging over my shoulders, making me feel like I wasn't welcome.

My husband is a real estate broker and has shown me many, many resale homes where I immediately sensed either a negative vibe or a positive ambiance. This has nothing to do with cleanliness or staging a home. When I walk into a home, I often feel there were huge arguments or perhaps painful interactions that might have taken place. I can be in a sunny, upbeat mood and feel like a dark cloud has landed on my head. Heading for the door, I wonder if the house will ever sell. Of course, I've been in happy homes where happy families lived and typically, I've wanted to linger. Isn't it strange how we leave behind these energy fields and how can we prevent them from seeping into the foundation?

While USA Today called Sedona, Arizona the most beautiful place in America, others say it’s a place of concentrated energy. A place where spiritual powers feel enhanced from what the New Age crowd calls a vortex and others say it’s just our own personal reaction to extraordinary beauty. A vortex is something that swirls like a whirlpool and takes place in water, fire and even lava. Like dust or snow flurries, they settle down after a while, unless it’s invisible like energy. The invisible part makes scientists dispute the energy claims of Sedona because it’s not very easy to prove and scientists love having proof. All I know is that my fancy Swiss watch had a new battery when I went to Sedona, and once there, it stopped running. 

Home to many different tribes--such as Hopi, Apache and Anasazi-- could the collective energies of their families, their prayers have seeped into the red stone monoliths to create a kind of outdoor cathedral uniting tourists and local believers?

We've all heard of the power of positive thinking and the laws of abundance but what are the consequences of the opposite? With so many negative things going on in the world, is there something we can do to create positive energy? Every word, maybe every thought alters the universe. Maybe our inner strength can end violence, create peace and end war?

  1. There is a positive and negative force in the world.

  2. I definitely believe in what you're saying and don't think it's limited to those nearby. I have a friend who lives 3,000 miles away and we'll often be messaging other the same thing at the same time, or cut our hair the same way without thinking about it.

    If we can do this from 3,000 miles away, then I certainly think the world's positive energy could alter the universe. But getting everybody on board with it would be the hard part.

  3. It's admittedly something that I haven't dwelled on... perhaps I'm out of tune with such things.

  4. I've been drawn into situations which I thought at first dire in nature and because I tackle things head on when I sense I might not prevail, I will turn on the positive energy. I seem to have a knack for it. I've been told on many occasion that I seem to exude so much positive energy that people aren't afraid to follow what I have to say and the path I choose to take. Scary? :D

    I don't know what you call it, but I if it makes people feel more comfort in following my suggestions, then I put my experiences behind a positive attitude and everything else seems to fall into place!

  5. Hey Eve,

    Now here's some positive energy. Yes, at long last, I arrive full of positivity with my new adventure.

    Positive energy starts from within and transcends to the outside world. I know that not allowing negative environments permission to sabotage our right to happiness, is one step forward in a positive, united front.

    Lovely to you, my good friend.

    Hugs and hope,

    Gary

  6. I BELIEVE! I believe in these internal wiring systems that we and the animals have as well....it is a connection that is vital for our existence and survival. Oh how delightful of a read this morning! And thank you kindly for your visit and comment on my post! Anita

    1. That is a huge, awesome compliment Norma and I will remember your kind words. Thank you. I guess I'm hoping whatever I feel can spread....

  8. I try to be as positive as possible, but I do believe negative people draw negativity toward them. It could be as simple as people sensing your negative energy even before you've spoken and reacting to that energy in a negative manner, but it seems negative people never quite get far in life...

  9. If I reach for the phone to ring my sister, I can almost guarantee it will ring before I dial the number, and it will be her. It’s the same with birthday and Christmas cards. We live a good distance from one another and use different shops, but time and again we send each other exactly the same cards.
    I also think buildings, and places retain energy from previous occupants; some places feel downright scary while others sort of wrap you in a warm embrace.

  10. Hey Eve! You're right, this is similiar to my post...maybe one of those strange things??...hmmmm.....I know there are times I'll think that I should call my mom, and a few minutes later, she'll call me! Mind you, that doesn't happen every time, not even every other time, but when it does happen it seems so cool that I forget all the times it didn't happen. I do think there is a connection between us, (each other) and the other earthlings we share the planet with, but I think also that a lot of us have forgotten that, or fail to recognize its importance.
    Excellent post Eve! It may not be funny,(lol), but it makes ya think! :)
    Hope your weekend is wonderful!

    1. Thanks Eve for stopping in and I do think it's important to recognize this--as for funny--well if we're all thinking at the same time, that could be funny!

  11. Those concentrated energy sources are really something. I do believe that homes and places reflect the energy of those that lived there. I too have been in homes that felt comfortable and loving and others where I felt uncomfortable just near the house.
