One of the most sought after practices people want to learn from me is how I stay balanced, aligned, happy and in the flow as Universal Energy when there is so much hate, turmoil and pain in the world.
Let me preface by saying I wasn't always this way. For many years I called myself an "empath" which unconsciously and unintentionally invited into my energetic frequency everything that wasn't mine and the more I gave myself that title the more I attracted.
It wasn't until I fully understood in my human experience that though I am one with all energies and I have the ability to be empathetic and feel however I want towards whatever I want, it's NOT my responsibility to take everything on as mine.
I learned to become conscious of the triggers that supported the uncontrollable emotions of feeling helpless, scared, and often angry at what I was witnessing around me.
I stopped watching the news and reading the newspaper years ago and became very selective in what I allowed myself to see on social media as more and more platforms became available to show us the happenings of the world. I started questioning why the topics most discussed by media and people in general were about things that stirred up all kinds of low frequency energies.
I realized in a very short time that removing myself from these experiences I was actually helping myself to raise my own energetic vibration and began to live a very different life because of it. Some may see this as selfish and portrays a picture of me not caring which of course they are entitled to their opinion but those that know me know that's simply not true.
What I have come to understand is the ONLY control I have over any situation or experience is how I choose to react to it. By living in a higher frequency I am a better human. I have more compassion. I am able to listen and I am able to learn. When I am operating from a lower frequency all of that and more is lost.
That doesn't mean I don't feel some anger when I hear about certain things nor does it mean the sadness has left me completely. What it does mean is that I now use these emotions in these moments to propel me to love more, do better, be better and help when I can, where I can from the high frequency that can actually create the change we want to see in the world. Frequencies are very real and the more you learn about the frequency you live as, the more you can harness your own and be that change you say you want for our world. One conscious moment at a time, we can.
