So the other day I’m walking around the store looking for a new saucepan (yes, saucepan) and there’s a whole slew of Teflon products on the shelves.
When it comes to cooking, I’m not really into Teflon. I don’t like what it’s made of, don’t like the chemical reaction that occurs when it’s heated. Overall, it’s not the kind of product I’d stock my whole kitchen with.
On the flip side – how everything slides right off it never seizes to amaze me.
Even though I wouldn’t buy it – you’ve gotta love how cool and convenient that is. That made me think about a few things concerning life.
Thinking about it I know seeing the words “Teflon” and “life” in the same sentence doesn’t actually make too much sense, but in a funny enough way they actually go hand in hand.
Couple weeks ago I posted up a Spiritual Saturdays post where Abraham Hicks discusses the astonishing power of emotion, talks about a person’s vibration and staying in the “vortex” plus various other aspects. It goes on for a good 30 minutes.
Really when you think about it, emotions and vibrations go hand in hand yet can be separated. The key is aligning your energy or “thoughts“…because your thoughts can eat you alive. A good movie that has an excellent example of this is “Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh” – to sum it up it’s about a guy who even though married the woman of his dreams can’t get over his own issues that are revolving around in his head.
Getting a hold of your own vibration sounds odd at first and can take some getting used to, but when you do learn to control and eventually master it, you’ll wonder why it was so hard in the beginning. The free eBook offered here helps with this.
Choosing what to focus on is one of the most powerful things a person can master.
Let’s start talking in terms of analogies.
Choice of thought can be looked at like a pan over a hot burner on a stove top. Depending on what the pan is made of affects how the things that it comes into contact with will cook.
If you don’t take the conscious effort to have control over your own thoughts or your mood, then your whole energy alignment will be like a new skillet that hasn’t been seasoned and needs to be pre-oiled – everything will stick and burn, making it hard for the next food item to be heated or cooked – because the previous item is still stuck onto the pan.
If however, you train yourself enough to take control over your thoughts, mood, or “vibration,” and make the conscious decision to say:
“NO. No matter what happens, no matter who I come into contact with, no matter what the weather’s like, no matter what situation I encounter I’m going to make it my business to stay in this happy, relaxed state of mind today…”
if you make the decision to say that to yourself and then follow through with it…well then my friend you’ll be like Teflon.
If someone’s having an off day and you’re just “skipping along” or it’s been smooth sailing with your mood, and you make the decision to say “I don’t have time for this, this isn’t making me feel good, I’m not going to be this vibration or this mood’s company,” eventually, you’ll come to find out that someone else’s energy will just sail right past you.
You’ll be like a Teflon pan where when someone throws an egg in to make an omelet, it just swirls around like a glass of fine wine.
This is when you truly take control of your day to day mood and feelings. You don’t have to be affected by others if you don’t choose or allow to. The decision lies in choosing to allow. Remember that.
