I’ve been aching to get this thought out and presented on this wonderful site. I notice that when other people bring lots of energy in social atmospheres, it amps me up. People who bring unique energy trigger energy within me that I wish I would amp up more often. People sometimes make you realize what level you could be existing at. And those special people that you connect with most encourage you to do just that. So I’ve been thinking. It might work well to imagine when in a social setting having the reflection of your best self in front of you. Imagine all of the energy they would have. The wit, the courage, the confidence. Anything you need to be amplified within you. Imagine your ideal self in the room sending all that energy to you. Use that energy to amp things up a bit! As good as any idea is though, it must be applied. How do I apply it you might ask? Spend some time thinking about your ideal self. Then imagine the energy they carry. Maybe put some type of reminder on you. I read the article of the guy who makes this website, about his tattoo on his hand of a circle to remind him to tap into some awesome energy or imagine an alter-ego. (https://www.highexistence.com/how-to-install-a-power-up-button-on-your-body/). Well that same idea could be applied here. Happy energy boosting!
@ryezinguhbove, this is particularly relevant for me right now because I’ve been thinking, reading, and listening to videos a LOT about the power of thought and intention, and manifesting desires. Visualization is supposed to be very powerful but I haven’t tried it much myself… Seems like it could work really well!
I controlled a conversation with my friend the other day. I was high as fuck and realized that I KNEW that person and I knew what I wanted to say and how to say it. I was communicating without remembering the previous social borders I use so often. I was bold and it was amazing. I think most people confuse thinking with socializing. People say that you have to stop thinking when you want to communicate well. Or that you have to use your mind very thoughtfully. Well what I experienced felt like a perfect mixture of strong thought and careless understanding…
Honestly, as being the type of person that does this, it’s about becoming your higher self. Otherwise, you’re just putting on a facade. When you start living in a way that propels yourself toward excellence, wisdom, etc. you can create that type of vibe or energy wherever you go. I’ve realized the more I allow my potential to embody my actions, the more influence I have on others.
@tangledupinplaid21, a great book is The Power of the Mind to Heal, or the documentary/book The Secret by Ronda Burns if those are your focuses! Has some really important concepts about visualization in them. I think in pictures… all the time. So visualization is who I am.
“I think most people confuse thinking with socializing. People say that you have to stop thinking when you want to communicate well. Or that you have to use your mind very thoughtfully.”
I’ve been meditating on this for the past couple of days. Very well said. Ultimately when engaging a conversation with someone, your aim is to become one psyche for the time during the conversation. Bringing your internal chatter to expand out to someone else’s internal chatter and then sync the two into one voice. Both people need to be free form for this to happen, or fully accepting of external things.
” Well what I experienced felt like a perfect mixture of strong thought and careless understanding…”
Is this referring to your opinion of my post??
“A botton on the hand or one inside and unseen. Either is fine by me : )”
I hope you know how beautiful of a person you are for this. That was beautiful imagery.
And yes for key 1! A wise man once said… “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” -Albert Einstein
@whiteoak, “as being the type of person that does this”
Referring to using other energy to energize yourself or being the one influencing others to resonate at a higher frequency?
And very wise words. I feel my main hindrance of encompassing my full potential is fear. I need to cleanse myself of clinging to it. I have moments of my higher self being shown externally, but I haven’t mastered showing it on key. Right now it’s circumstantial and oft times by chance.
@ryezinguhbove, Being the one that influences others. I think something that could be useful is improving yourself for your own purposes, rather than viewing any realizations you have that thrust you toward higher levels of purpose, action, existence, etc. as attributes that you wish others to admire about you.
If at the core of your spiritual development you’re constantly trying to cling for acceptance or approval from others, your road will be very unpredictable and unstable, for you will always be relying on the judgements of others (something that is completely out of your control) to dictate your happiness or self worth. Even if you are awkward or self-conscious or whatever, improving yourself solely to create an image for others seems like a misguided endeavor.
Letting others define our self worth or beauty or how cool we are only leads to disappointment. We cling to the moments when we are accepted and suffer greatly and are tormented by the times we are rejected and told “no”: you’re not beautiful enough, you’re not awesome enough, you’re too awkward. THIS IS ALL BULLSHIT.
From looking at your picture, I think personally see so much beauty it’s hard to miss. However, especially at our age, it’s easy to get caught up in others ideas of what is beautiful and what isnt, and after a while we take these shallow judgements as true or real.
I’d definitely love to help if you have anymore issues you’d like to talk or vent about!
