Emotional Surfers

Do you get affected by other people’s emotions? Do other people’s emotions impact how you feel?

Many people surf the wave of other people’s emotions but emotional surfing is optional. 

The words that people say to you contain emotions. Sometimes they don’t contain much emotion at all and at other times they are highly emotionally charged. 

Emotion is energy. The emotion that is enmeshed in the words is vibrating at a certain frequency because energy vibrates. Energy is also magnetic. 

For example, if someone is angry and says something to you, the words he says will have emotion or energy vibrating at the frequency of anger (angry emotion). Now, if you do not have sufficient control of your awareness in your mind then the power of his words, which is really the emotion or energy in his words, can dictate where your awareness goes upon hearing those words. 

Assuming you have little control of where your awareness goes in your mind, then these words vibrating at the frequency of anger will grab hold of your awareness and move it to the area of your mind that is anger because your awareness is now infused with this angry emotion. This angry emotion is vibrating at a certain frequency which will move your awareness to the area of the mind that vibrates at that frequency. 

The same way, when you listen to a love song, the words of the singer that are infused with emotions of love can move your awareness to the romantic area of the mind. The process is the same. 

People say opposites attract. Well, people say a lot of things without actually thinking about what they are saying. Opposites attract only if you’re a magnet. In life things of a similar frequency attract. All the uplifting people I know only attract and have uplifting people in their lives. They vibrate at a certain frequency and attract into their lives others who are vibrating at a similar frequency. 

Another great impetus for learning about awareness and the mind, followed by learning to control awareness in the mind is so that you do not surf the wave of other people’s emotions. When someone says something in an emotional way to you, your ability to control your awareness in the mind determines if the power of their emotions take you to the area of the mind that they are in or not. 

Don’t be an emotional surfer. It is exhausting. Give yourself the gift of being able to choose which emotional waves you wish to surf. To do this learn about awareness and the mind. Make it your goal to master, in this life, where awareness goes in your mind. 

I’ve put over 25-years of experiential learning and practice into my Unwavering Focus course which clearly elucidates how to master awareness in the mind. It is the most important thing I can share with you and in my opinion, the most important thing you need to learn. All else stems from this. Click here to learn more about my Unwavering Focus course. Don’t delay or wait for the right time to begin the study and mastery of your mind.
