Sometimes I forget that I am deeply affected by other peoples energy, whether it is good or bad. For the most part, I am in tune with my body and can feel my heart beat faster or slower depending on the circumstance. My body is a barometer to the outside world. My hands turn cold when I’m nervous. I become shaky. My stomach tightens. Even my cheeks turn red when I feel threatened.
When I am happy I feel lighter and warm. A smile comes easier. It’s as if all functions level out.
It is good to pay attention to these reactions so as to not forget that we are all truly connected and that each kind word, each kind gesture, matters. At the core, all humans want the same things: health, happiness, and safety. If we all just focused on what we have, instead of what we don’t, then we’d be healthier and happier.
Wishing for peace around the world, and internally.
