How are you affected by the energy around you? And how is your presence affecting others?
Heavy energy creates heavy emotions and heavy experiences. The energy is heavy because it’s full of obstructions to your true nature, which is Light. Light energy creates light, and heavy energy creates heavy—it’s why a bad day tends to get worse.
Here’s an example: You watch the news over breakfast and begin to feel agitated; you snap at your spouse; then you miss your train; your boss is in a bad mood and everyone in the office is on edge; your debit card doesn’t work at lunch; you slip on a banana peel; when you get home you burn dinner…
Creation energy is viral; viral energy creates. It works the same for the good, the bad and the ugly.
So be careful not to resonate in a low emotion for too long: chronic exposure can drop your energy level (a.k.a. your presence) and therefore also drop the quality of what you create in your life and experiences.
I interviewed Dr. Gerald J. Haeffel, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame, who researches potential contagious properties of emotion. He said this. “It’s really interesting. We’re social creates and we do give off energy and vibes. A lot of times when you talk about something being contagious, you catch it and you know it right away, you start feeling worse, you start feeling sick. When we say contagious (in terms of viral energy), you didn’t go from being an extremely positive person and then go right to being negative, or vice versa. But an event or influence can have a small effect and start to work on you in a positive or negative way. You probably don’t realize that you are starting to think differently, so it really is like you’re catching a silent factor that you might not be aware of.”
