For a day following one that ended on such a high note, today is filled with sobering thoughts.
Good stuff, but sobering.
I’ve mentioned I utilize a white board to track various tasks.
I mentioned in a post yesterday the task list is rather lengthy now.
This morning I added a new task to the very top
Tune the Dial
What does this mean? Unlike the t-shirt in my store it is not about avoiding negativity.
Though that is wise.
Rather, it’s about the opposite. Focus on the positive.
Specifically a person or a situation that will put a smile in your heart when you think on it.
The idea to take such deliberate action came as part of a post-mortem analysis of the previous winter. It was, due to a variety of circumstances, a low point in my life.
Fortunately, months of introspection revealed it is unlikely the stars will line up in such a way again.
That isn’t to say I can be heedless of the fact some of my own vulnerabilities make it so if I’m not careful I could wind up in a smiliar place.
It was one of those where stress led to a behavior to address the stress but ended up bringing different stress which led to…
It was for this reason I spent months dissecting everything that took place including my role in any of it.
How did my actions contribute to my own suffering?
Once I finished that I identified actions I could take to avoid getting sucked into such a place again. I further considered how I might raise my energy vibration back to what it was prior to the chaos. One idea I toyed with was starting every morning by thinking of someone or something that put a smile in my heart.
To achieve the higher vibration I needed to refocus my attention.
I had to Tune the Dial.
What gave me the idea was that I’d noted whenever I composed an email to a certain friend I felt absolutely fantastic.
Energized and ready to face the day!
I decided to test and see if I felt that way even if I didn’t write to this friend but simply thought of them.
I went through other evaluations in order to gauge how various events affected me.
Including interactions with other people.
I periodically tried the morning email thought to see if it consistently got me smiling.
Wanting to be thorough in my efforts to see how various events affect me I spent the past few days doing a number of tests, including reading headlines.
I discovered that my interactions with people affect me far more than what I read in the headlines, regardless of whether or not those headlines are negative and/or upsetting.
I alluded to this in Under Siege: Tools and Strategies for Dealing with the Pillars of EMF Sensitivity in the section on Esoteric EMFs.
I considered activities that bring joy.
- Conversations with Family
- Philosophical conversations with others who love to stretch their minds
- Conversations with people pursuing their dreams or who have achieved them
- Thinking of Fans**
I considered there are some activities I haven’t done in a long time but knowing they brought happiness determined I would reengage.
Specifically a workout routine I did for decades, a combination of stretches and weight lifting.
I determined I got the best response by making a point each morning to think of someone or something that makes me smile.
I may write a message to them I don’t intend to send just to get that frequency tuned correctly.
I also determined it is in my best interest to make changes in how I handle situations that bring me down.
Especially interactions with people who drain me rather than juice me up.
I decided that each time I think of individual(s) who have caused grief or in some way drained me I will automatically send them thoughts of love and happiness.
I used a modified Silva technique to program myself to do as much.
I am getting good results.
Felt as if the weight of the world tumbled from my shoulders.
I am determined to make Tuning the Dial to bring in positive energy a habit.
**Thinking of the people who stop by to visit my websites and who subscribe brings such a smile to my heart! Thinking how people are enjoying the stories I write brings joy.
