Over the past few years, I’ve been told by several people in various situations, that I have a “calming effect” on them. It always makes me laugh because I know my mind and “calm” is not necessarily the right description. The calm before the storm, maybe.
Usually, I just write it off to the fact that I’m soft-spoken, polite, (you know, just your basic ‘decent human being’ stuff which has become something of a lost art.) But tonight it happened again, a stranger I interacted with who started off by saying they had had a “long day”, later randomly mentioned this calming effect again.
It got me thinking, maybe I should stop ignoring these little messages from the universe and start using my calming superpowers for the greater good. I have a feeling the world could use some calming energy right about now and in the years ahead. Not sure what that means for me exactly, but I think I’m open to finding out.
When I wrote this on social media, someone commented: “It’s the balancing your being brings.. most people just don’t know what to call it.” It helped me to fine-tune this thing because I realized they were right.
In these moments, it’s usually me just “being” and the other person allowing themselves to share this space with me till we find some kind of balance. In tonight’s case we were forced to occupy the same space for a while so they had to adjust. In extreme situations, when people are way off to the other edge of the stress spectrum, my so-called calming energy can sometimes be overwhelming for them and they resist it even more. In those cases there is just no possibility for balance.
Anyway, that’s it. Namaste, bitches. (This calming thing comes and goes.)
When we react to something, what actually happens is that our brain thinks to itself, “Hmmm, where have I encountered a similar experience before?” and then it re-acts, meaning: acts again. It’s a simple survival mechanism, but it doesn’t have to run on automatic. At any given moment we have the option to pause and say: “Thanks, but no thanks.. This time I’m responding differently.”
If you insist on contradicting your desires with “buts” all the time, (i.e. “I want to follow my passion BUT I don’t think I can make money from it”), try switching it around and adding a “but” to your doubts, instead.
For example: “I don’t think I can make money from doing what I love…BUT…I know that others have done it so I’m willing to research the idea and seek examples of those who make money from similar passions.”
Next time a doubt comes to mind, try adding a “But…” to that thought and see what you come up with. Your brain won’t know what hit it and your heart will thank you.

Did you know that your thoughts and feelings directly create your reality?
This is not a new concept, we do it all the time. The thoughts we think make us feel a certain way, and that feeling causes us to vibrate on a certain frequency – just like a radio dial tuning in to a certain station. Thoughts that make us feel bad have lower frequencies, and those that make us feel good have higher ones.
SO, what happens when you tune in to a certain frequency? Well, the same as when you tune in to a certain radio station – you get more of the same! That radio station (life) will continue to provide you with more and more things that match that low or high thought or feeling.
You can change the station, at any given moment, by reaching for a thought that makes you FEEL a little better than you do right now. The key word here is “feel” because your feelings and emotions will always be the indication of whether you are in a low or higher vibrational frequency.
Meditation: It’s not what you think.
I prayed for change, so I changed my mind. I prayed for guidance and learned to trust myself. I prayed for happiness and realized I am not my ego. I prayed for peace and learned to accept others unconditionally. I prayed for abundance and realized my doubt kept it out. I prayed for wealth and realized it is my health. I prayed for a miracle and realized I am the miracle. I prayed for a soul mate and realized I am the One. I prayed for love and realized it’s always knocking, but I have to allow it in.” – Jackson Kiddard
If you want to see a clear example of the Law of Attraction in action, take a look at those times when you’re feeling bad or experiencing something negative. When we’re already in a negative state and all our energy is focused on the “problem”, what tends to happen is that we begin attracting more and more negative experiences at an even faster rate. That’s what we like to call: “When the shit hits the fan.” It feels like it’s out of our control but all that’s actually happening is that our current low vibrational state is reflecting outwards and intensifying by virtue of our focus.
The new shift in thinking is the gateway to human transformation. And because of the sheer number of people involved in this shift, and the growing magnitude of the crises that are driving us to change the way we think, we are standing on the threshold of human transformation at a level unlike anything ever before known on Earth. – Gregg Braden
What’s the point of finding a “cure” for cancer or any other disease if we continue living the same lifestyles and thinking the same thoughts that caused the disease (dis-ease) in the first place?
If we spent half as much time and energy on slowing down, breathing deep, doing what we love, nurturing our bodies, eating high vibrational foods, meditating, speaking from the heart, drinking lots of water, feeling good and loving ourselves in mind, body and soul, we would eventually “cure” all dis-ease anyway. It would simply become a non-issue.
