Being a Positive Force in the World
Through Emotional Contagion!
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 because it is an experience of your own reality, but also it sets the tone for positive inception to influence other people’s reality! We can be a positive force in this world through emotional contagion.
People relate to us, even in passing, through our words, tone of voice, facial expression and body language, but most of all through the emotions that we radiate in our aura and energy.
I was recently 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. That was left to the Great Law. My purpose was to be a friend and convey my care and consideration for them. So, in turn the person I was a friend to wanted to be a friend to someone else!
Mindful of our Emotions
We will synchronize with other people’s emotions unconsciously through the Law of Attraction. It can happen automatically since we have been unconsciously conditioned to mimic other people’s expressions, tone of voice and body language. Yet, it is the energy they project that can have the most influence on us.
And, of course we are responsible for what we express in the world! Recognizing our emotions and our motives are of primary importance in emotional contagion and what affect our attitude may have on others.
If we radiate emotions with qualities of love and happiness like in a genuine smile, it can draw out similar emotions from others. But, if we are doing something for someone, even at work, as an obligation rather than a free giving of abundance from our heart of love, then others can be adversely effected by that emotional energy of the motivation. And, it will retard our own growth and happiness. That is true of any fear-based emotional motivation like guilt, worry, resentment or jealousy.
The Laws at Work
If we want to be a conscious positive force in others lives we must first be aware of our own emotions and the motivations. In other words, know ourselves, otherwise if we work on assumption that assumption could be wrong. Practice of the Silence and the Mental Contact, meditation, helps quiet the 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.
We are all connected through vibration since everything is vibration. And, any emotions we express impacts others through that vibration that strikes their aura, especially those we direct our attention to. Then it can jump from one person to another very quickly.
But, it also spreads out further out from us, eventually fusing into the world mental/emotional atmosphere. Then that energy will also boomerang back to us, usually increased though we may not recognize the source of our good fortune or ‘bad luck!’
So, no matter how we view it – through contagion (Law of Vibration and the Law of Unity) or the Law of Karma (Law of Cause and Effect), it is in our own best interest to be conscious and manifest high-frequency energy in our emotions!
Being a Positive Force in the World
We can live our life sleep walking, just moving through our day not knowing how powerful a force we are in the world. Being mindful of the moment frees us to focus our attention on our deep felt emotions and motivations – our intent.
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!
In the hope You know the Love that You are, Portia SLB
“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.
