We are all connected in this massive stream of energy that flows through each and every one of us on Earth.
Knowing that we all here existing together, we can’t deny the fact that everything in our environment affects us in some way, which in turn affects the world as a whole. All of the people we don’t know about are just as capable and magnetically affecting the world and each of us in it. So much so that the loss of one person affects us all. This leads to a new (if not old) awareness that “If you are not everything you can be, you are costing others to be all that they can be”.
Think about the "100th Monkey” Phenomena. The one monkey on one island was taught to clean his sweet potato with water before eating it. When this monkey was introduced into the other monkeys, they all began cleaning their sweet potato. This was an obvious act that we can easily relate to when in the same close environment, we automatically take on some personality traits or ways of living from others around us. However, the biggest impact that these monkeys had, were not on the one group on the one island copying each other. It was when monkeys on a completely different island began cleaning their sweet potatoes that we began to realize, there is something greater that we cannot physically see, involved with the collective consciousness of the world we live in.
So ask yourself the question John F. Kennedy asked;
“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"
Life expects service from you. This is sometimes known as social responsibility. When you are motivated not only by doing things that help YOU feel better about life and living in this world, but add to the motivation that, when you be the best you, you are giving others permission to do the same. This is a proven phenomena that is displayed by the environment you find yourself.
Putting yourself in an environment that projects negativity or ways of being that does not support your best self, not only affects you personally, but also everyone in the environment, and therefore extends out into the entire world through osmosis and the collective connection.
“If you are not everything you can be, you are costing others to be all that they can be."
So what can you do about this to make sure you are creating the environment you want to be in and thrive in?
#1. Look to surround yourself in a constructive environment, not a destructive environment.
#2. Spend time getting in touch with WHO YOU REALLY ARE! Spend time ALONE. No TV, visitors, spend time thinking without succumbing to the need of getting another persons opinion about what you think.
#3. Surround yourself with people that expect something from you. When you surround yourself with people that challenge you to be the best you can be, it will not feel comfortable. However, you shall never strive for comfort anyway. Comfort creates fear of movement. Feel good being all that you can be and get familiar with who you are, but as soon as you stay stuck in this familiarity, you become rigid. Continually learn something new everyday to continue building upon who you are will encourage movement, flow and continuous opportunities.
#4. Make it your mission in life to make people glad they talked to you. Ask yourself what difference would it make to your environment if you did this?
Be active and smile! When someone asks you how you are doing today....answer with a great big “SENSATIONAL!!” Even if you don’t believe that you are sensational yet, just say it anyway with enthusiasm for 30 days and see what happens! :)
Embrace the flow of the collective connectedness and begin creating the world you want to live in by being the person you want to be with.
