Moving around through a day, most people never stop and consider the influence their mere presence has on those around you. Your mood and the way the you interact with those encountered on your daily journey, will have an effect on all even if you don’t realize it.
When I was young, I would often throw stones into the lake we lived on for no reason at all. My brother and I would see who could throw the farthest or make the biggest splash or the most skips. As you watched
all of the rocks hit the surface of the water and disappear to their murky destination, each left behind an expanding ring of ripples that carried with them the details of the size of the rock, its impact on the world, and the force with which it was discharged. Its energetic pattern, remained for a brief and fleeting moment.
When I watched the ripples intersect and merge I noticed a lot of different patterns. Some would join together and branch out and start a whole new wave. Others would simply override smaller ripples and completely dominate those smaller waves around them. Some would simply shine in the dwindling
twilight and radiate a signal all their own until they gently and almost imperceptibly disappear completely, either outside of my sight or splashing softly on the rocks of the shore at our feet.
Choose Your Energy
Today I can see that people and their attitudes are exactly like those rocks from long ago. Only the waves of energy they create can’t be seen, they can only be felt. Notice the next time you meet anyone, the feeling or vibe you feel from a person. This vibration is completely unique to each person, and just like the stones from long ago exudes information about that person.
That vibrational ripple is determined by the thoughts and beliefs that each person chooses to pay attention to and to think about each day. The choices are between love, kindness, understanding, acceptance and gratitude, or fear, hate, being mean, judgemental, angry and ungrateful. These ripples will affect everyone you meet and everything that you are involved in. Just as the ripples on the water interact and change each other.
The key is that each of us has the choice each day, no each moment, to remake these choices and change the vibration that our energetic ripples exude. The challenge is for you to look at your thoughts and beliefs and to decide how you want your energy to be perceived by others. It is a simple matter of choice and noticing.
