Becoming Aware of How Life Force Leaks Away From Us Unnecessarily
(Continued from: Life Force Part II)
For the last few months we have examined and explored the phenomena of life force, with the objective of increasing its flow into our being.
To review briefly, each of us receives/absorbs a certain minimum amount of this mysterious life force each moment of each day, just by being alive. This flow of life force is what gives us life, insight, consciousness. Without it we would die. When our life force is increased, it flows into all aspects of our being. We become more astute, clear, able to function at a high level of excellence. When we are “in the flow,” feeling and performing well, it usually is an indication that our life force levels are high.
Conversely, when our life force is low, when it leaks away, every aspect of our being is affected. Understanding this, the intelligent person becomes aware of not only what increases life force, but what decreases it as well. This way the astute person can promote and practice the methods of increase, and avoid those activities that decrease life force. Becoming aware of this ebb and flow of life force within us will make a huge difference in how we live our life. With practice we will naturally adopt good life force habits.
As I mentioned previously, our life force is intimately connected to our thoughts and emotions. Negative thoughts hinder the flow of life force, and these we must beware of. The main negative thoughts and emotions to look out for are those connected to guilt, hate, self-pity, fear and worry. All these always drain life force from us. Let’s briefly examine these emotional states:
Guilt: Each of us has incidents in our life where, if we were to relive them, we would probably do things differently. This is only natural. We are all human. As the old saying goes, “To err is human; to forgive divine.” To be human is to make mistakes. No one is immune. No one is perfect. If you let go of your past mistakes and errors in judgement, learning whatever lessons need to be learned from that experience, then this is healthy. Unfortunately many of us beat ourselves up over and over again over past mistakes. To hold yourself responsible in this way and to live with guilt daily is to be trapped in the past. This vicious cycle of self-abasement cuts off life force and weakens us.
Hate: One of the most toxic energy substances and to be avoided at all costs. Hate, whether it be self-hate or directed towards another, almost always causes serious illness to those individuals who foolishly indulge in its cesspool energy. I don’t care how justified you feel you are in hating another individual, you do so at your own risk. Think about how you feel when you hate. Take a minute right now and spend 60 seconds thinking about someone you dislike. Really get into it and hate that person for a full 60 seconds, and then observe how you feel when you’re finished. Why would you ever want that energy in you on a regular b
