Time for my third and final post of the week on the subject of celebration (as tomorrow is Transformational Question Friday).
And today I am celebrating Life! Let’s go big or go home, as they say. I don’t know about you, but for me life can sometimes be a bit of a roller-coaster, full of up days and down days and boy, do I get dizzy with it all sometimes. And yet, even when I’m in the thick of a rough, tough week I know that so much of that problematic stuff, those thoughts and emotions, are coming from inside me. Or are they?
I spend a lot of time looking at life from the point of view of being energy. We know that everything is energy, I do believe those science bods have decided this is definitely the case. So, we are energy, everything is energy and that’s all there is. It’s not easy to think of our solid, flesh and blood selves as energy, I admit, but hold that idea for a moment and let’s see where we can go with it.
We also know that energy is vibration. Everything is vibration. When we are experiencing something that has the same or similar vibration level as us, it resonates with us. The more something or someone resonates, the nearer the match to our own vibration. When there is a mis-match, we get a sense of dissonance, it feels out of synch with us and we feel uncomfortable. We learn to recognise the feeling of being uncomfortable and that’s life giving us a chance to make different choices.
So, what can lead us to feel dissonance? Anything that is of a lower vibration to us. What if we are at a low vibration ourselves? Then, other low vibration energies are a fit and we resonate with them rather than feeling dissonance. When we are at a low vibration and we come into contact with low vibrational situations, thoughts, actions, people, events, then they feel comfortable to us because we match them. We don’t get the signal to stay away because there is no dissonance. So, if you are feeling dissonance, going through times when you are out of synch, then you are resonating higher.
It’s only when we are at a higher level of vibration than the dissonance that we detect its presence and know that something is out of alignment. This is a gift, and it means that the low dissonance is not inside of us, it’s not a part of us, we are the high vibration and we remain the high vibration. We may choose to focus on and own that dissonance, but it is not us and we haven’t lost our own vibration, we remain at that same high level.
Life is amazing, life is looking after us all the time. Just by being energy, being vibration, life ensures we are kept informed of our needs, whether or not we pay attention. It also means that when we detect dissonance, when we are brought into contact with the vibration of a situation, event, thought or object that is not resonating for us, we are learning to understand that we are not that feeling, we can refuse to own that dissonance. Just let it be there, respect it as a guest that has come to show us something, don’t fight it and don’t own it. Continue to vibrate at the same high level. If we are wise, we learn to move away from whatever is bringing this lower vibe into our life. When we can’t move away, know the dissonance will pass, the dissonance is a teacher and a gift. Life is a teacher and a gift. Well worth celebrating, I’d say.
