HOW TO GET YOURSELF OUT OF NEGATIVE VORTEXT
Good day and I intend for you to have a great week. This week, I want to clarify the meaning of action in manifestation of our desires when we meet with obstacles and challenges. I am sure you have heard it said, emotion is energy in motion. I am also confident you have seen cartoon drawings of different moods. What is the common animation of a person who is depressed, or sad? Usually hunched over, droopy, slow moving right? What is the opposite of that? Excitement is usually synonymous with being animated, and vibrant, jovial and energetic.
I am going to ask you to try something with me. This has happened to me many times when I am encountering a challenge that catches me off guard or when I think I am being taken advantage of. The times when I feed into the feeling of anger, and negativity, it is much harder for me to regain my balance. But sometimes, and I have done this out of sarcasm and not with much foresight, I smile, or go out of my way to “nice them to death”. Even that sarcastic smile, very quickly dissolves the feelings of anger and negativity, if and only if I go with it, and not try to relive the situation by talking about it, or relaying the situation to others for the benefit of getting agreement or sympathy.
You see, taking inspired action is very easy when you have been going after your dreams, and desires. The same effort will minimize your problem when you are caught in the negativity vortex. I have spoken to you about the term called Amygdala hijack taught in Men Skills classes. When a trigger bypasses your rational thought process and makes you react, and blow off your lid, it takes a minimum of 20 minutes for you to calm down and regain your balance. Coming from a Law of Attraction (LOA) perspective, that is 20 minutes of high energy negative vibrations you are sending into the Universe that is attracting more of like opportunities for you get pissed off. Now who wants that right? Yet we do it over and over, almost every day and wonder how we got so messed up?
Being aware that this happens is a first step. Taking action to not get caught into the vortex as early as possible is the next step. So when things are starting to push you towards negativity, like for example when my kids start arguing and doing the exact opposite of what I asked them to do, I have to realize that I am about to get sucked into the negativity vortex. Then I have to do something. It does not have to be a huge thing. I mentioned before faking a wide grinning smile for a start. The more you move your body though, the easier it is to get back to balance. Do jumping jacks, walk and quack like a duck, whatever weird and ridiculous ACTION, you can think of and are comfortable doing, do it. The more ridiculous the better because it will interrupt the process. It is like when you watch the surfing championships in Hawaii, and a surfer is about to get wiped out in those huge waves, and a jet ski comes and pulls him out of harm’s way. The ridiculous, and crazy action is that jet ski. The more funny and crazy, and yes stupid you make the physical action, the more power the jet ski has to pull you away from the vortex of negativity back to calm waters.
Try it. The next time you are about to get pissed at a situation or someone. Grin from ear to ear, and take action. If you feel embarrassed or are in a situation where you can’t jump up and down, and make clucking noises, go out of your way to do something nice for someone. Hold the door open for 5 or six people in a row. Act like you are a servant. Go with the sarcasm because sarcasm is a higher vibration than anger, depression and rage. It is pulling you in the right direction, and that is what you want. You are reaching for something that feels a little better than where you are now, as fast as you can.
When you are pissed, it is hard to THINK YOURSELF OUT OF IT. Truly energy in motion will change your emotion. YOU MUST REMEMBER THOUGH NOT TO RELIVE THE SITUATION WHILE YOU ARE MOVING PHYSICALLY. Don’t walk like a chicken and say, “%$%$^& I did not get what I wanted”. Just move and breath, and concentrate on whatever is the most ridiculous thing you can think of doing right there and then. It works. It works really well, and as you do this, you are training your body and mind and pretty soon that grin will do the job in most situation because it is anchored with the crazy actions you do, and will be sufficient to interrupt the negative pattern.
