I recently made plans to meet a few friends for dinner. It’s been such a long time since we’ve gotten together and we were all feeling upbeat and ready for a night out at our favorite restaurant. As we were all catching up with each other’s lives, the waitress came to take our order.
It was pretty obvious that our waitress was having a bad day. She was less than friendly and not hiding how irritated she was. Instead of getting upset, irritated or angry myself, I decided to use a technique that I was taught many years ago. I still use it whenever I encounter someone who is angry, annoyed or just in a bad mood.
I decided to send the waitress positive, calming energy with my thoughts and surround her with white light. I took a moment to imagine this positive light entering her heart center. I did this as she took our order.
When our food was ready, the waitress brought it to our table and you could see she was more engaging. Her face was less tense and she actually began to laugh with us!
When the waitress left our table, my friends looked at each other and then at me. “Did you do something, John?” I told them I just sent her positive energy to help ease her mood, and possibly help her have a better night.
At the end of the meal, our waitress said, “Thank you and please come back!” I left in the hope that the positive shift in her energy would be passed on to her other customers, and maybe she would take it home to her family and let it keep spreading.
How many times have you been on a plane and swear that the screaming baby was purposely put in the row behind you? Instead of getting irritated with an infant who’s clearly suffering from the pressure change or just frightened, try sending calming energy. I often imagine that a beautiful pink bubble is encompassing the child, and more times than not, the baby will stop crying and calm down.
We often forget that we’re made up of energy and we’re all quite powerful.
Your energy and the energy of those around you can affect you positively or negatively, so be aware of what you’re sending out and what you let in. The choice is and always will be yours.
Just for today, how about sending out a positive thought or blessing to everyone you encounter—no matter who it is or whether you know them or not. You never know whether this could create a ripple effect that will reach many people in their lives and beyond.
