Protecting Your Personal Energy

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head for days? It plays on repeat. Over and over again. Seems no matter how hard you try you can not shake it.

I’m grateful today that the tune/message in my head is a beautiful one. It’s positive, it’s a about love and never giving up. The song is The Man Who Can’t Be Moved, the Xenia version. The song makes me smile and I feel happy when it’s dancing around in my head.

Overwhelming scientific evidence shows that the messages that surround us have a measurable impact on our physical body. We also know that through repetition – I listened to that song several times in the past few days – we can embed messages into our subconscious. This is the theory behind daily affirmations. Your subconscious does not know the difference between reality and thought, it only knows that its role is to bring about what the thought instructs.

I’m not going to get into how to do affirmations and all that stuff, there is plenty of literature on that. What I do want to talk about are the messages that we allow into our lives and our subconscious.

If you believe as I do, that all messages – in fact all things – carry vibrations that all interact, then it’s easy to see why a negative message will have a negative effect on your body and positive messages create positive effects. It’s why you feel energized when you’re around happy people, and why you feel zapped when you’re around crabby people.

We all know “that person” who just sucks the life right out of you, they leave you feeling weak and exhausted. Take a moment and think about that person. Why do they wear you out? Likely, the answer will narrow to the projection of negative thoughts and messages. Are they argumentative, discriminating, mean, pessimistic?

They have a song in their head and it’s playing over and over and it carries negative vibrations that are wearing off on you. Your energy can not help but be impacted.

You can however remove yourself from the situation or counteract it with a stronger more positive song. Try this test with me for the next four days.

  • Listen to only positive music, happy upbeat songs
  • Watch only movies or television shows with a fun message or those that make you laugh
  • Turn off the news. That means, TV, Radio, Newspapers, Internet feeds – anything delivering negative messages
  • Avoid those people who pull your energy down
  • Identify one person who always brings you good energy and make a date with that person – suck in their great vibrations

At the end of your four-day experiment pause and ask yourself if you feel any different. Do you feel lighter, more energetic, more happy? If not, you were probably pretty happy to begin with. If yes, then ride the wave and continue to create a more peaceful and positive song in your head. I know the people around you will appreciate the good vibrations.
