Being a Positive Force in the World Through Emotional Contagion! Power of Emotions to Change Your Life, Part 8

Being a Positive Force in the World

Through Emotional Contagion!

Recently I was talking to someone on the phone and could tell they were ‘down’ which they attributed to the glumly weather, but after about twenty minutes of talking they said they felt like getting out to see a another friend. We synchronized emotionally, though there was no will power involved on my part. My purpose was to be a friend and convey consideration, care and love for them. So, in turn the person I was a friend to wanted to be a friend to someone else!

 We can be a positive force in this world through emotional contagion.

The Universal Law at work 

Have you ever noticed the more you smile the more other people around you smile?  There is real value in the emotion of smiling because, not only it is an experience of your own reality, but also it sets the tone for positive inception to influence other people’s reality! People relate to us, even in passing, through our body language, facial expressions, words, and tone of voice.

Through the Law of Attraction, we can synchronize with other people’s emotions in their energy fields and auras, unconsciously. Emotions are contagious!

We have been unconsciously conditioned to mimic other people’s expressions, tone of voice and body language. If we radiate emotions with qualities of love and happiness like a genuine smile, it attracts similar friendly emotions from others.

Others may find their innate love and return it to us, though it may be unconsciously. Nevertheless, when we manifest Love people will respond in kind eventually …… it is the Universal Law of Attraction, of Love. And that uplifting energy we originally sent out to others will eventually return to us increased. 

But, others can also be adversely effected by our emotional energy. Anger, hatred, disgust, resentment, jealousy, and worry are also contagious!

It is true of any fear-based emotion. Say at work, if we are doing something for someone as an obligation rather than freely giving abundance from our heart, it can attract the same energies from them, adversely affecting them. Plus, the same types of energies eventually return to us.

 The “thinker”

If we want to be a conscious, positive force in others lives, we must first be aware of our own emotions and motivations. In other words, know ourselves. 

Practice of Silence and the Mental Contact, meditation, helps quiet monkey chatter of the subconscious ego so that we are able to listen to our inner voice that recognizes the ego without getting snared in it.

If we are feeling down, we should be conscious of it and do our best to recognize it ….. and try to find the reason. It may be an emotional wound rooted in the past. Yet the essence of it is that the situation is not the way we think it should be. And, we are not doing what our loving heart Truly wants. Thus the depression and unhappiness.

Recognizing the emotional wound is just one step. Then we can accept it and release it. That way we don’t deepen it within ourselves and spread the same emotional energies to others.

You are a Power House!

We can live our life sleep walking, just moving through our day not knowing what a powerful force we are in the world. Being conscious, mindful of the moment, frees us to focus our attention on our deep felt emotions and motivations – our intents.

You can be a Light in this world. The ways are near endless, and everything counts. When you act sincerely from the Love and tenderness of your heart,  you are a positive force not only for yourself and others around you, but indeed for the world.

Love spreads. It’s contagious! 

In the hope You know the Love that You are, Portia SLB

Consider the Radiant Heart Exercise and Conscious Heart Practice to be a conscious positive force in the world through the emotion of Love.


“GIVE TO THE STRANGER THE RICHNESS OF THY SMILE,” is the gentle appeal of Love. What does it mean? It means that we should give even to the stranger whom we do not know, expressions of love….It is not the thing itself which counts, but the way the think is done or the way it is given.

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, pages 26-7.

Flutters

ID-1008718

Flutters

We are constantly fluttering,
Becoming dumbfound
We listen to voices with no sound
Dream resolution in delusion
Speak words of confusion
All the while, tasting bitter feelings of collusion.

We oscillate, palpitate and fluctuate
Totally ignore and subordinate the beauty of the butterfly
Misunderstanding the need to identify
With that character to comprehend
The butterfly is not pretend,
And does help us to ascend.

As dangerous flutters abound
We fear the butterfly cannot withstand the pain
Believing it is foreordain
That we are set apart
Opposites, an unsubstantial counterpart
Like a shadow with no heart.

With Light and Love, Portia SLB

A Dream

A Dream

 A Dream

Stone on my heart, heavy

with black underneath

No notice of twilight, deep

Cold and deserved frozen complete

 

Hands of time, still

with experience incomplete

Sweetness unravel memories, tear

  Ice and immure darkness begin to retreat

 

Question forms on my lips, why 

within light still burns
Smell a whisper of roses, sweet
Faint movement and beat

 

Do I dream, now?

Do I begin to feel?

Am I awakening? Hope.

 Is that gentle love that I feel?

With Light and Love, Portia SLB


“In the darkest hours of your life, when the stress of circumstance is at its crisis you have a Light to guide you and a Strength to help you support the burden. Universal Life Energy, that wonderful Power vouchsafed to Mankind, is always ready at hand to answer your call, an Ever Present Help in time of trouble, an Ally never loath to come at your summons and lend Its invincible Strength to fight and win all life’s battles.”

Dance on water

DANCE ON WATER

Your reflection is rippled and distorted in the human mind,                                                     yet your Higher Self knows
You dance on water, You float on air!


You are a gentle soul that unfolds petal,                                                                                       by 1,000 petals
so that your tender heart is disclosed.


You are a friend, then foe, then Friend exposed.

You are a jewel in the silence,
a Light like the sun.

You are ‘I am’ and part of ‘I AM ONE.’

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB


“The Past cannot be changed; we have to take it as it is. But our Future is completely in our hands, and, if we start the right causes, should never occasion us any worry, as it will take care of itself because of the Law of Cause and Effect.”

The secret Love of a crisis – it’s not what you think!

Montserrat, Italy 2018 PSLB

Photo: Montserrat, Italy 2018 PSLB

The subconscious ego may be torn up and desperately distraught …. circles over and over in despair, depression, worry, and fear about the global and very personal issues we face now …… without finding any value in it at all.  Yet, there is value in everything, including the present challenges. 

Difficulties can challenge us to pause, ponder and contemplate …. to go within …… to seek joy and happiness. Isn’t it true that we seek strength, wisdom, freedom and harmony? Even the subconscious cries for freedom from misery. Urns for happiness. Pleads for strength and wisdom.  

The subconscious ego wants to reject the way things are now, and would much rather focus on the future or the past without fully experiencing life now. Yet, it’s an opportunity missed. So many, many opportunities missed to consciously experience life. Gone.

If we view every challenge, every problem, every opposition  …..  as an opportunity to find within us a greater response then …… we are encouraged to look within to find our sown strengths …… to rediscover our Soul’s Strength, Wisdom, Truth and Love.

Challenges can prompt us to pause, ponder, and become Silent …… and that’s when we are better able to look deep within and recognize our own Inner Real Self. We may find that we are in the moment fully ….. appreciating Life.

And there can be victory in our hearts ….. and this is a secret Love within us awakening ….. Unconditional Love and Joy.

Gratitude may arise for the awareness of what is happening. Not for the crisis, problem or opposition, rather gratitude for the awareness of serenity and love always being close at hand. Gratitude for the infinite opportunities in this moment. Gratitude for some higher conscious understanding, that may not be logical, rather something deeper and far reaching ….. life changing.

And we can know ….. that if we do fall when facing challenges, it is temporary because we have a deep drive within us to succeed in life. It may take a while and we can hit bottom. Yet, eventually we will, with the help of the Great Principle, find the courage to dust ourselves off and face life again ….. and this is a great gift of Unconditional Love.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB


“And there are those who walk the Divine Road. No human help do they expect. At first their steps are handicapped. They have to fight ill-will, and apathy, and ignorance, and fear….And by and by, slowly, step after step they climb, overcoming obstacles along the way, until easier and broader turns the path on which they move onward.”

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, pages 305 and 306.

Sure fired ways to create Happy Days!

Photo: PSLB Key West

The subconscious ego can hold us in frustration, lack, and unhappy times, yet a simple decision to rise above it can change everything and our reality can transform.

We are the creators of our reality …. with our attitudes, thoughts and behaviors. Your greatest asset for creating a happy life is yourself ….. your Inner spiritual will and Authentic Self. Remember that the Eternal is always within You, endlessly working for your happiness. You only need to allow it ….. allow all the uplifting Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love to be in your consciousness and life.

And remember that everything …..everything we think, decide, or do returns to us! And this is also what we attract more of.

Here are some simple ways to create happy days …..

Start your day …….by going within! Take some time to be with yourself and know your loving heart, conscious awareness and inner strength. Do some deep breathing and contact Universal Life Energy, which works to harmonize body, mind and emotions.

Do an attitude check! If you start with an uplifting attitude it can stay with you throughout your day, motivating positive thoughts and behaviors. So consider telling yourself that today is full of happy potential ….. it’s an awesome day! Smile! You are activating the Law of Attraction!

Paint visualizations in your mind of your Happiness ….. what makes you happy and feel it as if it is right at this moment. Know for certain and write it, say it, be in that energy now. This is what you attract and create.

Have an attitude of gratitude. View challenges as opportunities to learn from and improve your well-being. And learn from your mistakes rather than circling in them.

Throughout the day allow yourself to be in the present moment. Accept the moment as it is. See the good in it. That simple decision can change your brain’s neurochemistry to a positive direction. Obsessive worry or constantly thinking the same thoughts, especially of the past, can keep us stuck in that frequency.

Listen to, dance to, sing to ….. feel good music ….. for example, “Happy” by Pharrell,I Got You (I Feel Good)” by Brown, “Marriage of Figaro” by Mozart,Largo al factotum’ by Rossini. It’s amazing how uplifting great music can be!

Dance ,,,,, exercise, eat healthy, and get plenty of sleep. When you feel good on one level it manifests in other levels ….. so if we eat healthy, exercise and get plenty of rejuvenating sleep it benefits our attitudes and behaviors to feel good and be happy!

Clear the clutter …… a simple environment helps release you from past energies, attitudes and memories, opening paths before you with fresh, uplifting energies.

Make the decision to listen to your Heart and be lead by Love. Live FourSquare – be enthusiastic, wise, accurate and loving in all that you do. It’ll build your self-esteem, confidence and attract more feel good opportunities for successes.

See the good in yourself and others. Be a Light in the world. Lend a hand, heart and mind to help others. Give the healing Energy to the world.

In the hope You paint your happy day now, PortiaSLB

“The Power of Love, surging with a quickened beat through the whole Race, is beginning to eat away the discrepancies in their individual natures by which their lack of balance was measured.”

Simple effort can have major effects and change your life!

We can sit in a quiet place to meditate and all that happens is thinking. We are so addicted to thinking that we feel empty, lost without it.

It takes courage to go into the gaps ….. to become aware of the silence in-between the streams of thinking. It takes courage to go out of our comfort zone …. to pause, observe the quiet ….. go silent within…… and experience zero thoughts.

And we may not even be aware that such a thing is even possible until we try it ….. until we experience it. And interestingly, when we do experience it …… it is such a calm peace that we can get excited about it and we have to quiet that excitement too.

We may experience cycles of silence …… thinking …… silence …… excitement …… silence. And realize we are stretching out the gaps of silence between the streams of thinking, with the thinking streams becoming shorter and the gaps of silence longer in the sense of the human mind.

The point is that in the Silence we are mentally relaxed, physically relaxed, emotionally relaxed.

We are in the physical world, yet free of the heavy senses of it. We are in the mental world, yet free of the demanding and addictive thinking of it. Free of the collective, human subconscious and free of the inner ego, with the memories, beliefs and assumptions of the past.

We are in the human emotional, behavioral world….. yet free of it. Free of guilt, fear, anger, impatience and all the drama, highs and lows.

We are allowing ourselves to return to our true nature …… and this is a healing process for us. We remember and allow ourselves to embrace the beauty of our loving nature ….. to the courageous heart that allows, permits acceptance of what is. Acceptance of what is the condition of life in the moment ….. for ourselves and for others.

And from this experience of Silence …… the experience of freedom from the human ego along with the past attachments and ties to the future ….. we begin to experience the freedom in our daily life moment to moment, seeing the opportunity to build on that freedom for our happiness.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“In practicing Relaxation and Silence you will gradually gain such control over yourself that unfavorable surroundings will no longer be able so to influence you as to prevent you from deriving all the benefits from the two Exercises whenever you choose.”

Inner art

photo PSLB New Zealand

Creativity is a spiritual process that as humans we sometimes overlook and underrate because we are not normally aware that we are constantly creating. We don’t see ourselves as artists …… or creators. Yet, we are constantly creating.

Creative Process

Art is the invisible within …… and the expressions of art are the manifestations. Art is the Power and Inner Being behind the creative process …….behind the manifestation of creation of works of art, rather than the works of art themselves. And that creative process is part of our life everyday.

It is the waking up and beginning your daily life of thoughts, motivations, and behaviors. You are creating within every moment of your day. Actually it is more accurate to say we are co-creators because …… there is nothing we can do without the Source, Our Father, the Eternal.

You are making choices and creating your reality …… with your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors. And this is art ….. the creative process.

Your attitudes and emotions motivate your thoughts ….. and you behave, take actions accordingly. Your actions create an effect. Everything is connected in mind, past memories and emotions, possible futures and most importantly ….. what is happening right now.

The Conscious Artist

A person conscious of being a creative artist …… loves the process of creating ….. and aware of what motives them in the present moment. Now some may call this spiritual awareness or even religious devotion ….. and it is in a way, because …… we are becoming conscious of the Divine within ourselves.

When we toast a piece of bread, paste a picture in a memory book or call a friend ….. we are being the artist …… because we are in the creative process. And we can choose to be conscious of it ….. love it ….. and create beauty because of love within ….. or slide along unconscious of our motivations or what, how we are creating.

We often create unconsciously with subconscious traits rooted in fear and ignorance, like anxiety, desire and pride. And we can be totally unaware of how such emotions motivate our thoughts and behaviors ….. and we end up creating problems/challenges for ourselves.

This inner creative quality is something to cherish and nourish

We usually dismiss and forget our creative process all together in our every day life. Yet, when we become conscious of being motivated by love and other qualities of love like ….. hope, appreciation, consideration, and compassion ….. then we are in the process of creating reality with these motivations …… and we attract more of the same …..

Then art is not a thing of beauty ….. art is beauty. Art is the inner creative cause within you …… the honoring of love and beauty. In this respect, art and our spiritual journey are one and the same.

In the hope You find your Inner Artist, PortiaSLB

For a link to this week’s lesson from 27 Lessons in Science of Being: Intuition Now

Posted in Mindfulness, Practices, shaping your reality | Tagged , , , , , , , , , | 3 Comments

Healing treatments

Health and happiness is the goal of us all and we are now becoming conscious that we are responsible for both. What we think, feel and do all determine our well being and success in life.

The purpose of Science of Being is to help all of us achieve Freedom, Strength, and Happiness. Thus this week we are exploring one of the greatest assets in our hands …… and that is to help us heal ourselves when we succumb to illnesses, physical or mental.

Here is an expert of the Companion lesson 17 in 27 Lessons in Science of Being …. kindly consider the link and joining us in this revealing series of lessons with steps to help us achieve all that we desire in life:




All illnesses are rooted in the human mind, thus start with a Mental treatment. Make the Mental Contact and get to the root of the problem by being open to recognizing the cause rooted in the subconscious ego. Let it flow through you, then fade. Allow Universal Life Energy to do Its work by penetrating and expelling the negative from the subconscious according to Universal Law without personal will power.

“Silently state that there is nothing to fear, that Peace, Confidence, Strength and Harmony are supreme in the Body under your ministrations.”

Eugene Fersen, The Fundamental Principles in Science of Being, page 241.

And realize that Harmony and happiness is our natural state. You are being a channel for the patience to reconnect with their Higher Self and Universal Life Energy which does the healing.

For the Magnetic treatment I direct the Energy to the physical body, including any specific area as needed ….. without willing healing or transformed tissue. Depend on the Will of the Father and Universal Life Energy to work according to Universal Law, and Trust in That.


Kindly keep in mind that these lessons are arranged in gradual depth, so if you are just joining us or just starting your journey in Science of. Being start with Lesson 1 and build up.

Remember I am available for questions or comments too….. just leave a message in the comment box and I will get back with the help of the Great All.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB
