Everything in this world is made of energy, and just as a single tuning fork that is struck will cause adjacent tuning forks to also resonate at that same frequency, the same holds true for our experience of emotions in life. How many times have I encountered a sad or angry person and felt my own energy drop and begin to resonate at that same level? Or the times that I have been low and encountered the vibrant energy of someone who is happy and in a good space and I’ve felt my own energy rise to resonate higher? It is hard for those separate energies to co-exist in the same space… so who is going to change? One or the other inevitably will.
Understanding this concept has brought new perspective to the challenge of parenting. I have a child right now who is struggling with anger. His energy is so strong and forceful. I often times end up syncing to his energy and becoming defensive and angry myself. But understanding this concept is helping me realize the power that I have if I “HOLD THE SPACE” of light and love. If I can stay there, remain open, the other energy begins to change by natural law. The moments I have been able to do this have been miraculous and proven true. How do you ‘hold space’ for others? #reallifebalance
