Positive and Negative Energy
We always talk about the total influence of energy on our existence and how important it is to know more and more about its categories, ways to enhance its flow and take care of our surroundings and others, as we are all connected in a profound way. Understanding about positive and negative energy, polarization and paths to balance makes us more developed and capable people in all fields of life.
Every day more humanity is able to observe the energy transmitted by different bodies; when we look at galactic images from telescopes, when we measure telluric energy coming from the Earth’s core, electricity, heat, the more subtle the type of energy becomes, the more delicate the process and the instruments also become.
The subject of energy is fascinating and full of deep learning. The subtle energy, strongly emanated from human beings, influenced especially by the strongest and most recurring feelings that we have and that we absorb in the form of energy from third parties, has a more delicate form, because it is extra-physical, and the way we deal with them involves tools and mixed and integrated techniques:
Maintaining physical and mental health
A healthy mind in a healthy body. Taking care of health requires a holistic view, exercise is not enough, but good socializing, care and regular practices, both good nutrition and exercise, kindness and even contemplation, a little melancholy, everything is part of balance.
Maintaining a proper flow of energies in our environment and our bodies
More than the physical body we live in, our living environments are also energy magnets, and as, in many of them, there is a flow of people, with different experiences and feelings, these places can often be loaded, requiring the action of neutralizing bad energies and catalysts for good energies.
Feng Shui teaches us from a very early age in human history about how important it is to take care of the organization of spaces to enable flows; use stones such as obsidian to offer a terrifying capacity for energies, and more delicate stones, such as rose quartz , to inspire calm and good living in environments, keep water flowing for purification, especially in commercial environments , mandalas that inspire rest or concentration, good habits influence and are influenced by the way your environment is organized.
And it is also important to take care of your etheric body, because our chakras , which are our most subtle energy production instruments, can become charged or even obstructed, causing an unproductive accumulation of energy: sedentary lifestyle, excess stress, repressed feelings, everything. this can cause blockages in our energies, leaving us drained.
In these moments , reiki is certainly a great ally in the search for balance and especially in maintaining this balance, which is the most important thing . Good living is a constant exercise.
7 ways to convert negative energy into positive energy
Here are some ways to convert negative energy into positive energy:
1- Become grateful for everything
When we think the world revolves around us it’s easy to believe that we simply deserve everything we have and want. When we place ourselves at the center of the universe, we create unrealistic expectations that others must serve us, supply our needs and desires all the time. When we hold ourselves in this position of false entitlement, we easily become dissatisfied and filled with negativity.
People who don’t appreciate the nuances and understand the ups and downs of their lives live in a constant state of lack and it’s really hard to live a positive life this way.
When we understand the meaning of gratitude in our lives and realize that simple things like being able to get where we want to go (whether walking, driving, biking), we change our attitude from selfishness to appreciation.
This state of appreciation is noticed by others and the increased positivity creates a feeling of harmony that reshapes our relationships. When we are grateful we begin to receive more than we expect. This happens because we give up the idea of receiving. So when something comes up, it’s a nice surprise.
2- Laugh more, especially to yourself
We spend our days too busy. The work routine and relationships with busy schedules and so few days off make us lose part of our sensitivity towards others.
Staying all the time “running after losses” and trying to reach performance goals stipulated by others and by ourselves can harden negative thoughts oriented towards lack and incompleteness. Becoming positive means taking life less seriously and letting go of the anchors that weigh us down.
Do you have trouble laughing at jokes?
Usually people who are stressed and/or overly tense are offended by a bit of sarcasm or humor related to what they are doing. If we can learn to laugh at ourselves and our mistakes, life will become lighter and we will be more likely to discover what makes us happy. Finding happiness means finding positivity.
3- Help other people
Negativity goes hand in hand with selfishness. People who live only for themselves have no greater purpose in their lives.
If a person’s focus is only on taking care of themselves and no one else, the road to long-term fulfillment can be longer than they ever imagined.
Positivity goes hand in hand with purpose.
The most basic way to create purpose and positivity in our lives is to start doing things for others. Start with small acts; hold the door for the person in front of you at a bank branch or ask people about how their day went without having to immediately give your own personal account. Helping others will give you an intangible sense of worth that will translate into positivity.
4- Change your thinking
We can be our biggest supporters or our biggest enemies. The position we take in relation to our lives comes from ourselves.
If you want to become more positive, change your thoughts. We are the hardest part of ourselves and an undercurrent of negative thoughts is corrosive to a positive life.
The next time you have a negative thought, write it down and reframe it for a positive result. For example, change a thought like, “I can’t believe I did so badly on this test. I’ll never make it” to “I didn’t do as well as I had hoped on this test, but I know I can and will do better next time. “
Changing our own thoughts is a powerful tool.
5- Surround yourself with positive people
We become like the people around us. If our group of friends is full of “energy suckers” and “drama queens”, we tend to mimic their behavior and become like them. It is very difficult to be positive when people around us do not support or demonstrate any positive behavior.
Change is scary, but moving away from negative people is a big step towards improving your mood and acquiring more constructive thoughts. Positive people reflect good energies and growth expectations for those around them. Positivity is a process to be achieved step-by-step when you’re alone, but when you’re in a positive group of friends changes can happen at an accelerated pace.
6- Get into action
Negative thoughts can be really overwhelming. Negativity is usually accompanied by a tendency to give up and give in, especially when it is linked to relationships and plans for the future.
Turn negative momentum into positive action. The next time you’re in one of these situations, try taking a break. With your eyes closed, take a few deep breaths. Once you are calm, approach the situation or issue with a pen and pad in hand. Write down four or five actions or solutions to start dissolving the problem. If you manage to change the focus from the negative to the search for solutions, you will return to rationality and be able to broaden your gaze.
7- Take full responsibility for your actions; stop being “the victim”
People who always believe that things happen to harm them have a victim mentality. This is a subtle and misleading negative thought pattern. Phrases like “I have to work” or “I can’t believe he did this to me” are indicators of a victim mentality. Blaming circumstances and looking for blame only undermines our decision to change from something negative to something positive.
If you take responsibility for your life, your thoughts, and your actions, you will be well on your way to creating a more positive life. We have unlimited potential to create and transform our own reality. When we start to really internalize good things, we discover that no one can make us feel or do anything we don’t want to. We choose our emotional and behavioral response to deal with people and circumstances…all the time.
