Did you know your thoughts can affect water – and your body?

Last week I was interviewed for a documentary called ‘A Vibrational World.’ The documentary seeks to explain how everything we perceive in the universe is energy, including our bodies, and therefore has a vibrational frequency.

I am a strong advocate of this understanding because if we can understand our vibrational body, we can understand elements that keep us happy and well, as well as understand factors that can make us sick.

These negative factors are not always visible, but we can comprehend that vibrational forces from electromagnetism, X-Rays and nuclear radiation can cause damage to our physical bodies.

From a more subtle point of view, our body’s subtle energy field can similarly be affected by the emotional charge of the people around us, or even the local space. Have you ever walked into a building where people are depressed and you can just feel a ‘negative vibe?’ Well, that’s the subtle aspects of how we perceive energy fields and its vibrational frequencies.

According to Reiki expert William Rand, people can make the best use of their life force energies by improving their diet. In order to make use of higher healing energies, the physical body must be capable of holding and channelling these energy frequencies.

The body can therefore achieve a high degree of purification for natural balance. Stimulants, drugs and diet can distort our nervous system and other important organ systems. The body would therefore be hindered from holding more refined frequencies as the nervous system would not be able to channel them.

Although some energy would flow, these are only the lower vibrations which do not hold the full healing potential possible.

The quality and quantity of food you eat is central to your physical and emotional health. The source of food and how it is cooked is just as important as what it contains. Your body and health is a clearly a reflection of what you eat – on this there is no debate.

Your diet affects the energy to heal physically

Another fascinating observation affecting our nutrition comes from experiments by Dr Masaru Emoto from Japan. He took pictures of water molecules using a Magnetic Resonance Analyser (MRA) which he then exposed to prayer, sounds and words.

Initially the MRA pictures showed the water molecules as dark and non-descript, but after an hour of prayer directed at the water, the molecules had transformed into bright hexagonal crystals.

He repeated the experiments and found that positive thoughts and emotions would turn the water molecules into beautiful crystals whilst directing anger or abuse at the molecules would change them into ugly shapes.

Considering that our bodies are 65-70% water and that the food and drink we consume have high concentrations of water, it is a startling discovery of how our energetic vibrations from thoughts and emotions can shape our nutritional intake.

It also makes sense when certain religions advocate prayer before a meal as it channels positive energy into the food; we now have scientific evidence to prove a positive effect. These findings also offer an explanation as to why food made with love always tastes better and feels more nourishing.

7 Positive tips on How to deal with Negative people

Every person radiates energy and your own personal energy is influenced by those around you. Certain people give off positive energy while others give off negative energy – when you spend time with negative people, your own thoughts and emotions slowly become negative and toxic.  On the flipside, spending time with cheerful, optimistic people can help you laugh, feel upbeat and exuberant.

Have you ever noticed that you attract people with similar energy to your own? They say ‘misery loves company’ and so at any particular point in time, if you are feeling negative you are more likely to attract the same, even though this is not necessarily the best solution for you.

According to personal development guru the late Jim Rohn, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” This is why we need to actively manage our social circle, as not everyone you meet will be an appropriate match for where you want to get to in your life.

Remember life will always throw us people that challenge us and people that support us, almost always in a 50-50 ratio. Both sides however are always there to test and evolve us.

However, we can raise our vibrations ourselves as we evolve over the long term. Here are a few practical ways in which you can deal with daily situations or people that may be negatively affect your energy field:

1.   Change the topic

Negative people tend to dwell on everything that is wrong with the world and completely ignore the positive aspects of a situation. They can also exaggerate issues and make their predicament seem a lot worse than it actually is.

In such as situation, avoid engaging in the negativity. Make them realise that everyone on the planet is given a half a glass, and it is up to us if we wan’t to look at it as a glass half empty, or a glass half full. Switching the conversation to a more positive tone, highlighting positive aspects or changing the topic altogether can help in the short term.

When the conversation changes, be sure to affirm and respond with enthusiasm whenever the person is being positive. Ultimately, an individual who has a repeatedly negative view on things has an underlying energetic disruption requiring attention.

2.   Meditate

As mentioned earlier, meditation will help you centre your mind so you do not dwell on the negative thoughts or ideas that may have been introduced while spending time with a negative person. It will help restore balance in your energy field; the more often you meditate, the more balanced you will be

3.   Relinquish your ego

Always remember that negative people also serve a purpose in your life – they are meant to evolve you so you can be a better person.

Negative people are often very critical of those around them, and you may find yourself on the receiving end of their criticism. Unwarranted criticism is an indication of the person’s personal issues, they are often more angry of their inner selves, which has nothing to do with you.

Don’t let hurtful comments get under your skin – that is your ego being hurt and not you true inner self. Your inner, authentic self is a soul of beauty and it is untouchable, no matter what happens in the world. Relinquish your true enemy, which is you ego in such circumstances as I did in openly declaring my own personal ‘flaws’.

You’ll be surprised that people don’t really care what your ‘flaws’ are because deep down, theirs are just as real. You will live so much lighter afterward and be able to accomplish anything you want with greater ease and flow.

4.   Practice Gratitude

When the negative person is a loved one, it is important to remind yourself that he or she loves you despite the criticism. Be grateful for things and people you do enjoy having in your life, no matter how insignificant that may seem.

Some people write a Gratitude List, that is a list of all the things you are grateful for in your life, no matter how small it may be, like a supportive friend or even a favourite inspiring quote you just read. Once you add up your list, you will find everything balances off and your energy shifts.

In the follow up book to The Secret, Rhonda Byrnes suggests using a Gratitude Rock. I occasionally use this tip before going to bed, where I hold on to a random rock I picked up near Bondi Beach and think of the one thing I am most grateful for in the day. This exercise reinforces our thoughts to shift to every positive experience in the day and shifts our programming to further manifest our desires.

5.   Suggest action

Since the focus of any argumentative scenario is often on negative aspects of a situation, your role is to play the objective party. Provide workable solutions to the person and later ask whether he or she followed through on the solutions you came up with as this may help the person come to terms with his or her own negativity.

Sometimes you will find that despite solving the problem, the person continues to be despondent. Keep reminding them of their victories, successes and achievements, no matter how small or large they may appear.

6.   Move away

To the extent possible, avoid people that drain your energy. This does not mean that they do not deserve your love, but sometimes you need to have time out to find your own positivity and build immunity toward their negative energy.

As your body’s energy system reaches higher levels of vibration in your personal growth, you can become a source of strength to others. On occasion, it is perfectly acceptable to put that particular relationship on the back burner or let it fade altogether, to enhance your own life.

Do this only after consulting dependable people or seek professional advice.

7.   Rebalance your own energy

If all else fails, rebalancing your own energy with energy techniques can help you eliminate the negative energy you absorb from those around you.

When your spouse, parent or child is a negative person, it can be very difficult to be completely immune of his or her negative energy. As such regular balancing of your chakras and field helps you release the negative emotions you may feel, allowing more positive energy to flow into your life.
