The experience I shared last week in my blog demonstrates the power of our energy on our animals and I would venture to say on much more than that. I want to share with you the experience of one of my readers when she experimented with this technique and something truly incredible I learned several years ago.
“Thanks for sharing Wendy. I tried your technique the night after reading your blog. A very noisy thunderstorm came thru at 11:30 PM with an intense lightening show. My 70 lb German shepherd and 8 lb kitty were having thunder terrors and wanted me to ‘save them’. I have tried different techniques for my dog the entire 11 yrs that I have had her and have found no way to calm her thunderstorm fears. I dropped into TM meditation and expanded it out into the room as you suggested. By gosh, both the cat and dog laid back down and went to sleep!! Even with the thunderstorm continuing to cause a ruckus outside!! Unbelievable…I was able to fall back to sleep myself and we all had a good night. You are fabulous!!!”
You might be wondering if this is something you could do…get peaceful enough and know how to work with your energy so that you could calm the savage beast…so to speak. Well I am here to tell you, YOU CAN. I teach this in my Phoenix Rising programs. It is doable…for anyone. Just in case you need a bit more convincing…let me share something really fascinating. Keep in mind, my process with the dogs involved sending my heart energy out to fill the room.
Several years ago I attended a workshop with author Greg Bradden and Howard Martin of the HeartMath Institute. This was my first introduction to the Heartmath Institute which was founded over 20 years ago to scientifically study the heart.
What we know about the heart because of their research is that its electrical field is forty-sixty times stronger than the brain and its magnetic field is five thousand times stronger than the brain. The energetic field of the heart extends outside the body somewhere between 1-8 ft. This is measurable electromagnetic energy…not some woo woo illusion.
Here’s something really amazing..the energy of the heart appears to affect the Earths’ Magnetic field. (okay, some of us have known this for a long time).
NASA tracks the earth’s magnetic fields with different satellites on an ongoing basis and the information is graphed. There was a significant change in the magnetic field; a large spike appeared on the graph. The scientists were curious what would have caused the spike, perhaps a strong weather event. When they looked at the exact day and time the spike occurred there had been no strong weather event. The graph spiked on September 11, 2001 at 9 am eastern time. Fifteen minutes after the planes struck the twin towers the impact of the horrific news and the accompaning emotions felt around the world as people learned about this event actually altered the magnetic energy of the earth.
Think about that for a moment. The compassion and empathy felt by viewers around the world literally changed the magnetic field of the earth. We are powerful.
You are powerful. But since nobody passed out energy operating manuals when we were born…or during our schooling, we need to learn how to manage this thing called our energy body.
For those of us who are “highly sensitive” this is even more important because we feel others energy and frankly, sometimes that sucks. We take on energy that doesn’t belong to us and we end up with anxiety, depression, anger and other emotions that are not ours…but are attached to the energy we came in contact with (as if we didn’t have enough of our own stuff to deal with).
The good news is we can learn how to protect our energy to create more peace in our lives and in the process we open the door to tap into our higher wisdom and live a life directed by our higher purpose.
If you’re ready to learn how to manage your energy body to create more peace in your life and live in tune with your higher purpose, check out my Phoenix Rising class coming up soon (and filling up quickly by the way).
In the meantime, if you want to know what’s going on with your energy field just share your space with an animal. They are highly sensitive and will reflect back to you what they feel. I like to think of them as my energy barometers.
If you want to learn more about how you can positively affect what happens in our world I invite you to check out The Global Coherence Initiative, a science-based initiative uniting millions of people in heart-focused care and intention, to shift global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace.
