There are many books and online resources that define and describe what Negative Energy is. The description below is one that I feel fits well with how we work with sound.
“Negative energy is out of harmony or out of resonance. Negative energy is a lower vibrational energy that creates a disturbance in the field. It’s actually not really negative, it is different and unwelcome in a particular situation.” – Elaine Seiler
Much of the negative energy we feel is unknowingly dropped into a space from human emotions as we go through our day. This is normal. An important aspect of the evolutionary stage we are experiencing right now is to become more conscious of these ‘energy droppings’.
Sometimes this energy lodges itself into a space or a body if those emotions and thoughts are repeated a lot, including the negative thoughts we think about ourselves.
Worry creates an ENORMOUS amount of negative energy clutter. This is energy that is most often sent unknowingly.
Many of you know that I’m a physical empath. Negative, or unwelcome, energy – or any energy, for that matter – has always had a deep impact on me. And that has been a long journey of learning. And figuring out how to manage its impact on me.
Let me describe one of my experiences with negative energy to allow you to glimpse it through my perceptions.
This happened in 2006. I was working on producing and recording my CD “Transmutation.” I was also thrilled to be collaborating with a good friend of mine on another CD project, creating the sound track for her meditations.
On top of this, I also had a full teaching schedule and other volunteer commitments. My days were pretty full.
One of the very special people in my life has always been my mother-in-law, Peggy. I adored her. We had so much fun doing many things together. We enjoyed getting our hair done and treating ourselves to lunch. She helped plan the flower gardens around our house. She was a MASTER gardener. We often did craft projects for Christmas and scrapbooking together and so much more.
I always treasured my time with her.
Peggy, though, was a champion worrier. She had a brilliant mind. But when she was focused on the negative stuff, she could create a very powerful field. Especially when she was focused on one person in particular.
Thoughts have powerful energy. They are VERY real in a physical sense. Powerfully focused thoughts can create fields, like clouds. Positive thoughts create positive, or welcome, fields. And negative thoughts create negative, or unwelcome, fields.
Positive thought fields make you feel wonderful, vibrant, blissful and more, like standing on the shores of Lake Louise in Canada. Negative thought fields can feel buzzy, heavy, thick, creepy. Like when the hairs on the back of your neck are raised when something feels not right.
I hadn’t realized the strength of Peggy’s “worry” fields until one morning, while I was driving to a recording session with my friend. I received a blast of energy that almost drove me off the road. I physically hit the steering wheel.
I don’t get this kind of blast very often and I immediately asked for its source. Peggy came to my mind immediately and I knew that she had been focusing her worry energy on me.
It took me 20 to 30 minutes of vocal toning and clearing to get that energy out of my being. And to return to feeling ‘myself’ again.
What you NEED to know about ‘worry’
Worry creates a powerful negative thought field. And this thought field has a physical reality.
When you are worrying about someone in particular – they RECEIVE this energy. Whether they are aware of it or not.
You may not realize this, but YOU receive the full blast of this energy too.
So what is ‘worry?’
Here’s a definition from Google: “Worry – To give way to anxiety or unease; allow one’s mind to dwell on difficulty or troubles.”
Check out the list of synonyms in the next part of the definition!
synonyms: fret, be concerned, be anxious, agonize, overthink, brood, panic, lose sleep, get worked up, get stressed, get in a state, stew, torment oneself, as in “she worries about his health”
Worry is nothing but FEAR!! It is every possible negative situation your mind can come up with!!
And what does that do?
It creates a powerful field filled with FEAR all around you!
And if you are focusing those thoughts of fear on someone else, they too receive this field filled with FEAR.
There’s another part of this that is also damaging your own health. Every time you have a fearful thought, you are flooding your body with the stress hormones, adrenalin and cortisol.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control has stated that more than HALF of all deaths of those UNDER 65 are because of stress.
Have you ever heard or said “I was worried to death about you!” Does this information give you a different perspective on ‘worry?’ I hope so!
Back to my story. What did I do?
I made the decision to take responsibility for my own worry thoughts.
I gathered my two sons around the kitchen table and made a solemn promise to them. I promised them that I would NEVER worry about them again.
Whenever they are in a situation where they could be in danger, like driving on icy roads, I consciously surround them with a bubble of golden light. Then, for example, if they are on icy roads, I imagine a golden path all the way from where they are to their destination.
I also had a heart to heart conversation with Peggy about her worry energy.
She knew of my sensitivities and was quite shocked when I told her that I had felt the effect of her worrying about me. She had been worrying about me that day.
I told her what it felt like and asked her not to worry about me anymore. I asked her that if she noticed her mind moving into habitual worry thoughts, that she create the intention to notice them and imagine me in a golden bubble of light instead.
I know she did her best. But 80 some odd years of habitual negative thought patterns isn’t really changed in a day.
There are many different kinds of what we would call ‘negative’ energy. But with all the chaos in our world right now, ‘worry’ is RAMPANT!
And as you now know, ‘worry’ thoughts have serious consequences. Especially to your own wellbeing.
That’s why this article has focused on that one aspect of negative energy.
My hope and prayer is that with a little more awareness and responsibility for our own thoughts, we can actually save some lives.
And find the PEACE that always feeds us.
