Musings Episode 49: Energy…

Hey, hope everyone’s been having a great weekend and creating some new memories. I’m feeling a bit knackered (which I’d like to sort out), so this episodic musing will be short.

If there’s two things that are inevitably woven into the patterns of day to day life, it’s numbers and energy. Let’s focus on the latter.

Energy fuels a lot of different things, and starts with a thought. Energy fuels how you go about your day to day activities such as work, interactions with people, the way you feel towards certain things people say or do, and can even effect how you approach exercise and your usual workout.

Different energies can conflict with one another – positive and negative being the most general example. What’s convenient (and pretty cool) though is that you can change your energy, by doing different things. It’s not just coffee that can get a person energized. It doesn’t take energy drinks. It doesn’t even take energy pills.

I remember car trading days, 4 days a week worth of LOUD auctioneers, car fumes, the shouts of ringmen and dealers all around. No matter how much money, 5 hours straight of an auction chant at full blast (literally) has a tendency to make your ears ring. I used to practically LIVE off of energy drinks just to get through those mornings (waking up at 5:15 a.m. has never been my cup of tea).

What I didn’t realize is that the energy drinks actually did more harm than good. If anything after a while they were burning out my nervous system and depreciating my vitamin B levels, which had to be counteracted with supplemental daily doses of vitamin B in liquid or caplet form.

Finally, I quit the energy drinks. Started focusing more on alternative, natural ways of feeling the “pump.”

It took a while, but I realized that “pump” had nothing to do with caffeine, taurine, or any of that stuff. It has to do with thoughts you think, actions you take…and I realized I was bored. No, wait not bored – burnt out. As humans we’re meant to constantly evolve, and in that line of business, the plateau had been reached. It was time to evolve.

Start trying and learning new things and you’ll realize your energy levels increase naturally. Let’s put it into a fitness perspective: the reason most people get “discourage” or “tired” of fitness isn’t because it drains energy – on the contrary, it actually boosts energy levels and increases mental awareness.

The main reason is because their body is bored to tears of doing the same thing over and over, not being able to test its limits.

The thought of things that excite you, depress you, make you happy, sad, etc, all change energy levels. Even feeling challenged or taking on something new changes energy levels.

A feeling of nervousness is an indicator of fear. Fear can stem from thinking you don’t know/aren’t familiar with a certain something. The only energy you’ll get from that is low energy.

A feeling of excitement can have the same physical feelings of nervousness, but a bit different. Excitement means you’re ready for something, you may not be familiar with it but you have a thought of confidence.

So really, thoughts are connected to feelings, and feelings connected to energy, all in respective order.

You think Monday is going to suck, so you wake up feeling down about it, and continue the day not feeling very energized, thinking you have to have coffee, that you think will make you feel better, thus boosting your energy levels.

See the process?

You go on a date, thinking about how the who thing’s going to play out, and you feel confident because you’ve been observant and have a game plan (player pun not intended), so you meet up with your date and have confident, excited, non-negative energy.

See the difference?

It starts with a thought…that continues to a feeling…and manifests in energy – which we’re all connected by.

You wouldn’t be half (I bet even a quarter) as excited about the thought of having a day tour of a funeral home than you would about having a day tour of a [insert your favorite thing to do here].

This is what makes concerts so epic, team sports so spirited, and the feeling of walking into a hospital somber and serious. It’s the overall energy of the collective people in the places.

Negative and positive energy can’t coincide in the same places. So remember to take care in who you associate with, what you listen to, read, and what you watch. Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday and has a kickass Monday.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 25: Hate For No Reason…

So this weekend’s been kind of up and down for me…

il_570xN.345850943

At first I thought it was a joke, but now I’ve realized a person I once talked to, got along with, and really thought was cool people hates me.

Hates me.

….and I’ve no real idea why. I’ve considered just confronting them directly about it – but a few other friends of mine have advised against it. Yet I prefer getting to the bottom of things asap – no bars, no holding back, just straight talk. In situations like these it’s better to just shoot straight, get it over and done with.

Thing is, I don’t think the person has the guts to do it [openly state their hate] to my face. Which annoys me. If someone has the audacity to hate someone – and openly state it to others – but never directly say it to the person the negative energy is directed at – then that person is a coward.

In relation to social matters, I have one main philosophy – hate for no reason, is unwarranted hostility. I don’t do well at all with unwarranted hostility. I find it unnecessary, time consuming, and a bad channel for energy. I tend to give everyone a decent level of respect, and have these mental “respect meters” in my head….if a person starts hating me for no reason though, or unnecessary negative experiences are thrown my way – the meter drops….and in turn so does my opinion of the person.

If it drops below a certain point, I no longer find it necessary for that person – that negative energy, to be in my life. Plain and simple.

This got me wanting to write a bit about why hate for no reason – or hate in general, is something that should really be avoided. Dislike is inevitable at times – especially if there are valid, legitimate reasons…but disliking/hating someone without reasoning, is probably the worst thing you can do to another human being – not to mention yourself.

I’d like to touch on this lightly, as getting dark really isn’t my cup of tea. If I go dark I’ll only do it if the situation really calls for it.

So – hate. Why do people do it…? Why does it exist…? Why is it more frequent than it’s opposite, love?

it’s far easier to hate – but it takes far more energy. Energy that easily turns into negative energy. With enough focus on hate at the end of the day someone could render themselves sick – just by the way their energy has been focused.

Negative energy is a waste of time and effort. While without it we would never know it’s opposite – positive energy – at the same time after getting familiarized with it you’d think people would prefer to avoid it. It can knock you off course, make you less focused, and consume your thoughts.

If you regularly work out, it can actually lower your immune system thus hindering workouts and performance. This is why fitness consultants advise people to try and eliminate as much stress as humanly possible from their day to day lives. Stress, anger, sadness, any kind of negative emotion that releases LDLs and VLDLs (lipoproteins that create “bad” cholesterol) more often, and contribute to excess cholesterol levels increasing. Stress has a tendency to release the “fight or flight” adrenaline used when in a dangerous situation – it pumps out adrenaline when it’s not really called for or needed.

Stress and building up hate inside yourself isn’t the only thing that can actually transmit negative energy or “vibes” your way – but interestingly enough so can someone sitting and thinking on their resentment towards you. It’s what many people, both religious and non-religious, and some cultures recognize as the evil eye.

Remember that saying “if looks could kill?” it also ties in here. This is why some cultures believe if someone is having recent, frequent negative experiences go on in their lives it’s potentially from an outside source – a person or thing that has negative energy directed at them, thus causing chaos and confusion.

This is where silver owned signifying redemption or mercy, and talismans come in. Some also believe that any negative energy can be removed with the burning of sage, etc.

Energy, a lot of times is so overlooked. It’s what people in the 70’s called “vibes” – “you’re killing my vibe man,” really in effect meant one person could be making another feel a certain pulse of unwanted energy.

So when you think about it – this applies across the board.

When people are in romantic relationships, they feel desired, wanted, loved.

When people have good platonic friendships or great family support, they feel appreciated, needed, important.

….and when people are in conflicting situations or go through negative experiences they’re left feeling disrupted, uneasy, confused, on guard.

This is why it’s so important to filter or screen. Some people can, and will suck the life out of you. Chase Amante wrote a great article on this, about “psychic vampires.”

And really that’s what life is all about – going forward, getting better, and eliminating negative experiences.

When you walk down the street, you walk around or step over shit – not go through it. It’s as simple as that – anything negative in your life, you have complete control over whether or not to keep it there.

So let go, and continue making you a better you. Just like I’m doing it’s better to kick the feeling out of your system rather than let it sit there. It just takes a little will power – hence why every single being on this earth was given free will. Humans and only humans – no thing else.

Stay sharp.
