It's Just Energy
One important way that I use the tool of "it's just energy" is in my relationship with my husband. There are times in our very harmonious partnership when we get really annoyed at each other. Thank Goodness for experience, that most effective teacher, from which we have both learned that when we are fighting, it's rarely about us. When we are in conflict, it doesn't reflect at all on the amount of love, commitment or happiness we experience together. It's a reflection of how much we're being caught up in the energies around us.
We have learned over time that when one of us can remember that simple truth, and then remind the other, we can step back, take a deep breath, and wait for the flurry to pass. It's not about us. We may be stressed over something that happened at work, or stirred up by something unresolved from the past, or many other things, making us more grouchy or sensitive. But grouchy and sensitive are temporary states of affairs. They are vibrations passing by, and not the truth of us. We have agreed to believe in the face of whatever is passing by that our relationship is sacred, and our belief makes it so.
Someone once told me that it's all energy mechanics, and I'm starting to understand the truth of that. In seeing a situation as the fleeting and mutable vibration that it is, rather than a solid thing that we are forced to endure for as long as it chooses to stick around, we are able to choose to be proactive rather than reactive in our response to it. We can manage it rather than let it control our experience.
How do we manage the energies that we encounter in our lives, and turn them to our good? Meditation is one way, but there are many others. Prayer, affirmations, turning it over to the God within us, or choosing to see God within another; probably all of the tools discussed in this blog and elsewhere help us change the energy. Anything that helps us take a step up from the problem, and connect with our higher truth, allows us to remember that we are unlimited creators of our life's divine melody.
May this tool be a blessing. . .
