What needs to be added to this conversation is how our own human energy field can either magnetize things toward us or repel things from us depending on our state of mind and our habituation. One therapist I knew told a group of us that children of alcoholic parents will likely attract an alcoholic person to them without even trying. They could walk into a party and would be attracted to the only alcoholic in the room. It’s not that they even want to do this but something in their energy field magnetizes this reality to them. In a Firewalk, I believe we are conditioning our “state of mind” a group hypnosis that moves our energy in such a way to protect our feet from burning. As long as we are in this relaxed, focussed state of mind, we do not burn but should we break “state” we can. I believe that is why my toe burned. I broke “state” before I washed off the coals. Taking this train of thought a bit further, I believe we can apply it to our lives and the things that happen or don’t happen to us. Why is it that when we are genuinely happy on the inside, we don’t get sick, we don’t tend to have accidents, we attract great people to us and sometimes even serendipitous situations? When we are in a more disgruntled state, just the opposite occurs. We attract illness, accidents and other disgruntled people to us. There is a bit more to it but basically we attract “Who We Are Being” to us. This means we have an opportunity to see what we are experiencing in our world as a Mirror of who we are being in the world. The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim "like attracts like”. Our personal growth comes when we acknowledge this and strive to become a better version of our current self. As we look into the mirror of all the people and situations we attract to us, we can then redirect our personal sails in a new direction if we choose to create a new reality and new experiences for ourselves.
So when accidents do occur, who’s fault is it anyway? Is it ours? Have we attracted this situation or event to us somehow? What is that event mirror telling us about what is going on inside, our “state of mind”? This level of personal responsibly can be very empowering. It means we have to power to change our life circumstances but we Must become someone different, an improved version of ourselves. We have to shift our thoughts and feelings. This is easily accomplished by reading empowering books and watching movies with new ideas that evoke feelings in a new way. We need to shift our habits by doing new activities, and having new experiences and especially changing our habits and routines. Turn off the TV, drive a different route to work, park in a different place and walk, get lost on purpose, read an inspirational book, try a new workout, meditate, try a different cuisine, just experience something different and on a regular basis. We must move out of our comfort zone and try on a new experience in order to evoke new feelings within. Then watching the mirror of life we can adjust our sails to continue to move in the direction of our dreams.
In addition, it is important to keep your energy level high. You can’t jumpstart a new you with a tired body. Fuel yourself with good quality “real” food. They contain energy that will naturally fuel you. Avoid anything with chemicals, additives and added sugars. These are draining. If you eat something and feel tired after, it was probably the wrong fuel for you. Get moving in a way that feels great; Yoga, walking, jogging, hiking. Physical activity will generate natural energy and help bust stress. For an amazing energy booster, see a chiropractor. Chiropractic helps restore flow to your personal energy system, your nervous system so your body can function optimally. Lastly, seek out nature. Sunlight, dirt and plants are powerful energy sources that you can pull from.
