I’m finding a fair number of Facebook friends are spouting off at the moment. At a ton of different things, and most of them seem to be pointing at things in the physical world that they see through emotional eyes and without any digging into the event to see what really is happening. Just reading something, getting wound up because, in this day of so much False News, they have a certain innocence and still automatically believe what people tell them. Let’s have a look at this…. From a basic Energy perspective it is quite interesting.
Did you know that when you respond with an emotional blast of anger, you are feeding energy to the very thing that threw you into a tizz in the first place?
Think about it from a purely practical/physical/emotional point of view:
You read about something that really gets you annoyed. That gives you a choice – you can react by actually directing that energy into finding more info about the situation, so you are not just being a sheeple, but working out whether it is something you should be angry about. Or you can just re-post without checking the validity and without adding anything. You can let your anger blurb out and add your comments to the post (maybe with a whole heap of swear words and finger pointing). You can also choose to do nothing or even delete the post from your page. There is probably many more things you can do, but these are the main ones I see.
Let’s look at what happens with each of these things – and we’ll use a scenario that actually appeared on my page a few minutes ago and triggered this ramble. A local tour boat has been forbidden to tie up at the dock due to health and safety risks.
You can re-post without checking the validity and without adding anything:
This appeared in your feed, the person who posted it is quite wound up. You didn’t know anything about this and it has got you quite annoyed. But you are a ‘don’t rock the boat’ kind of person, you prefer not to get personally involved, even though you are actually pretty angry about it. So you don’t bother to find out if this is true or not (and that is so easy nowadays with Google) you just hit the Share button. That’s so easy and, having done your thing, you can completely forget about it. You didn’t sound off, you didn’t rant, you just let it flow through you and maybe if you are Spiritual you added a belt of Love and Light.
Except you have 300 friends and let’s say that half of those people saw that re-post. 50 of those friends live in the local area and of those 50, 40 didn’t know about this. It just dropped into their feed in the same way as you received it. So now, potentially, another 40 people are annoyed. Some will sound off, most won’t check the validity. And I’d bet my bottom dollar that no-one will actually contact the tour operator or the harbour master to find out the real situation and see if they can help. And if each of those 40 have 300 friends…… Well that is a whole lot of people going through their day feeling angry.
This form of sharing is AWESOME if many of these people decide that they need to physically get out of their armchair, check out the real facts and if the matter is accurate and unjust, go see what they can do to help. Just think Standing Rock. But really? In our society? Mainly we just get good and mad. Then find something else to get good and mad over. Humans like to point the finger of blame at someone!
Maybe you get REALLY wound up and have a great rant:
Phew! Got that out of your system, you kinda let rip but hey! that released the anger and now you can get on with your life.
Except…… Those 300 friends. They now have the added fire of YOUR anger added to the initial post and there may be some who are offended by the swearing (I’m one of those – swearing is low frequency energy and I don’t want that in my energy field) So now, YOU may have released your anger by spouting off, but you have just INCREASED the load you have spread around. And you STILL didn’t bother the check the validity or the reason behind the decision OR get off your chair to do something about it. Getting the picture? Those flames are well and truly fanned!
Redirect the Energy:
When the post hits your feed and you get all riled up about it, maybe the first thing you do is say to yourself “Stop – let’s check if this is true” So many people fail to do this and that is how angry rumours and false news get a foothold in social media. Let us say that you make the decision to check it out and you turn to Google. In this way you gain really good information so you can decide if you do need to get good and angry or if it’s all a load of hogswash! Or maybe there is a really good reason that the boat was forbidden to tie up at the dock. Whatever it is, you are then taking your next step – sharing or not sharing, maybe telling it as it really is. The other benefit of heading off to Google first is that you have had time to take a metaphorical deep breath! You don’t just explode with a heap of emotional-driven superlatives and hit the share button!
You can choose to do nothing:
This one is a tricky one. A lot depends on your thinking behind this. Did you choose to do nothing because you are not interested – someone else’s problem, not yours? Did you choose to do nothing because you know that one lone voice is pretty much lost in the wilderness of all this anger? Maybe you chose to do nothing because you got involved before in something similar and got hurt. Maybe you did check it out, found it was true and chose to do nothing because you feel there is nothing to do – there was a solid reason behind the decision maybe. Some people may think you cowardly for appearing to ignore the situation (I have not followed news media for about 35 years – many people think this of me. I no longer care what they think. I know what is right for me). There are so many reasons behind this choice, but the bottom line is that you are NOT feeding the energy. Not in a positive way by acting or in a negative way by re-acting. And provided you are comfortable with that decision and understand why you made this choice, that is absolutely great.
You can delete the post – and maybe the poster:
This is my preferred method.
We have already shown that the post is carrying low-frequency energy in the form of anger. You have decided you are not going to promulgate that anger. So you can either leave the post on your page and it will soon move out of sight, or you can remove it from your page.
The reason I prefer to remove such posts from my page is the Law of Attraction. Yes, that very Law that we use whenever we want to create something in our lives (like money, good health, a holiday etc). The Law of Attraction doesn’t care what is being asked, it simply reads the Energy. And low-frequency energy, like anger, on your page will attract more low-frequency anger. I’ve seen this happen hundreds of times. It is the very reason why we Admins on the First Wave Blue Ray Indigos Facebook page remove all low-frequency posts. If we let someone post who is seeking money through a GoFundMe – even for a good cause – there will be 10’s of these in the next couple of weeks and most will not be for a “good cause.” If we allow an apple-cider cure post – we will be flooded with more apple-cider, garlic, turmeric, ginger cures followed by shampoo ads and even, once, we got a fish tank being offered for sale. And all this low-frequency clutter reduces the overall vibrational frequency of our page. And for Spiritual people trying to raise their frequency, it’s like shooting yourself in the foot.
I, personally, do not want that Energy on my page. Especially if there is a rant liberally peppered with foul language. My choice is to check out the validity, get involved if I have something I can offer or delete the post if it is untrue or I can’t help in any way. I also give the poster the benefit of the doubt – sometimes you do just need to rant! But if all – or even most – of their posts are rants, then I remove the person from my friend’s list. I don’t need their low energy affecting me.
I have one exception. One area of zero tolerance. Outright hatred, bigotry, fear-mongering. These energies have NO place in my life. Anyone who posts graphic pictures of the pain and torture of animals or other humans; anyone who spreads hatred and fear of other races, ethnic groups or communities – If this is where your energy lies; if you can share these things, fanning the flames of fear and hatred, even when you may disagree with them, ( the OMG look at this – it’s horrible kind of posts) then you will be removed from my friend list. I try not to judge – we all have our path to follow, and sometimes I give the benefit of the doubt and just remove the post – but every time I have done this, I find those things coming back.
I hope this has given you some food for thought; that you better understand how easy it is to promote low-frequency energy and especially that if you want to raise your energetic vibration, you really need to be on your toes. Work on Self doesn’t always mean from a healing / spiritual point of view; it doesn’t mean knowing the ins-and-outs of every Ascended Master – it includes your language use, it includes understanding why you do certain everyday things like having a rant! And it includes understanding the repercussions, Energetically, of those rants or low-frequency posts.
Yep, it can be a good thing to let the anger out – but maybe it is better to do it by yelling at a tree who will only argue back with a gentle, soothing hummmmmmm….. Me? I let rip in the shower. Its amazing how much emotion can be released, transmuted and washed away when needed – without harm to anyone else.
Whatever decision you make – it is YOUR decision. YOU hold responsibility for not only your Energy, but for how your energy affects the Collective Conscious Mind. It is easy to see how your possible explosion of anger on your facebook page can affect a whole heap of other folk and can even set off a chain reaction around our globe.
Conversely, each time you choose to share something worthwhile, something that brought you a smile or a laugh; something uplifting or supportive – you feed THOSE energetic flames too. How much better, I believe, to share the uplifting, positive, high Energy.
Choose wisely how your share Energy. Your choice has deeper repercussions than you may have realised.
It was a long read – I hope you found it worthwhile.
