Do you believe that the world around you reflects your inner state? Or, to put it another way, how you’re feeling can be a filter for what you’re experiencing?
For example: when you’re short-tempered you tend to have interactions that support that state of mind. When you’re happy, others seem more naturally friendly and fun to interact with.
I’ve noticed this when I go grocery shopping – my own little social, energetic experiment. I have a love-hate relationship with shopping. Sometimes I enjoy being out and about, interacting, and it charges me up! Other times I just want to get in and out as quickly as possible, especially when I’m preoccupied or in a rush. I notice that I have an enjoyable, easy shopping experience when I enter with that state of mind. So, it’s not really the people or the shopping that makes or breaks my experience, it’s me.
There’s a name for this: it’s called resonance. The inner mirrors the outer. Do you experience this?
Even though we may understand this, we still tend to believe that the situations and dramas around us are what make us feel how we feel.
The more I understand how energy exchange works, the more I recognize that cultivating our inner state has the biggest impact on how we perceive the world around us – and how it interacts back with us. We are not simply victims of the external. This doesn’t mean it’s always easy to remember in the moment, though! Can you relate?
When I recently wrote about saying hello to the water when I shower or bathe, this is what I was getting at. Saying “Hello, Water,” is a simple ritual that connects us beyond ourselves. When we pause to greet and thank the water, it brings inner balance and cultivates our senses. It primes our awareness to welcome MORE beauty and abundance.
When we got some much-needed rain this week, I indeed said, “Hello, Water!!”
It reminds me of a story told by my energy clearing teacher, Hay House author Jean Haner:
A rainmaker was brought into a village where there had been a long drought. The first thing he did when he arrived was to go into a tent by himself where he stayed for three days. The villagers wondered why he wasn’t out there doing a rain dance or other rituals to make it rain.
After three days, he emerged from the tent. Clouds gathered overhead and the sky opened up with rain. The villagers were thrilled and thanked the rainmaker. They asked how he did it. He said that to bring balance to the earth and sky, he first needed to bring himself into balance.
So often we, like the villagers, believe that DOING something externally will affect the desired change. And yes, that sometimes is the case. But what if our first course of action was tending to our inner being? Pausing. Breathing. Grounding. Honoring that what’s going on inside of us has a direct effect on the external – sometimes much more so than our outward activities.
Just as the rainmaker recognized the importance of finding equilibrium within himself before influencing the weather, we have the power to create harmony in our lives and the world by nurturing our own inner beings.
Our inner state has a profound impact on how we perceive and interact with the external world. When we are centered and aligned within ourselves, we radiate a sense of calm and clarity that attracts positive experiences and meaningful connections.
Conversely, when we are imbalanced or stressed, it can lead to a distorted perception of reality and hinder our ability to navigate challenges effectively. (Hello grumpy grocery store encounters!)
Taking the time to cultivate inner balance is not only beneficial for our own well-being but also for the collective consciousness. By prioritizing self-care, practicing mindfulness, and engaging in activities that nurture our soul, we contribute to a ripple effect of positivity and transformation that extends far beyond our immediate surroundings.
Imagine a world where individuals consciously work on finding their inner balance, where compassion, empathy, and understanding flow effortlessly. This is not an abstract concept but an attainable reality that starts with each one of us.
When we commit to our own growth and self-reflection, we create a ripple effect that spreads throughout our families, communities, and even the global community.
You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t value self-discovery, fulfillment, peace, and inner balance. You know that by investing in yourself, you are also investing in the well-being of those around you and the world at large.
What would open up for you – and those around you – if you cleared the mirror of your inner being to enjoy greater joy, connection, and love in your outer life? I invite you to explore this in a Heart & Soul Strategy Session where you’ll have undivided attention on YOU!
I’m so glad to be on this transformative path with you!!
