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.
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
“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.
