The Power of Emotion, when emotions are running high, is always a difficult Power to work with. Emotions are so powerful and can push us to blurt out words we don’t mean – or we do mean, but regret saying them out loud. Social media has made this Power even more difficult, as the words written in haste and not well thought through can lead to misunderstandings and misinterpretation. When we are not face-to-face in a conversation, we don’t have the ability to read a person’s body language and emotions so we can truly understand what is going on beneath the surface of the situation.
So how do we live more “divinely” in this world where everyone has an opinion and many times those opinions are not in agreement with our own? How do we keep the negativity growing from one unkind comment to a ball of blackness that takes on a life of its own as if it was a living, breathing creature? Try this: ask yourself – will this matter in a month? Six months? A year? If not, silence becomes your Power. Your protection. Silence. It may sound a bit overboard – protection? Silence is our protection because when we can walk away without speaking, knowing whatever we say will not change a situation or may actually make things worse, we can maintain our peaceful center. By retreating in silence, we have an opportunity to keep our words from being twisted and misunderstood. — Much love, Amara
