Redirecting Stressful Energy


Stress is scattered energy. Taking the undirected energy of stress and applying it useful relieves stressful feelings.

At the first sign of distress we can take a moment to breathe in deeply and then let go while relaxing on the out-breath. Controlled breathing cuts the edge off agitation. Next, change activity and surroundings. Focusing the mind on another activity redirects stressful energy. Choosing to live for the highest good directs our energy in a positive manner.

Directing our energy for the highest good serves us best, eliminates stress.

Making Time; Taking Time

We easily make time for the people we want to be with and the things we want to do. It is harder to arouse energy for what we are procrastinating about, or do not really want to do.

We feel a burst of energy to get the job done by adopting a positive attitude toward what we put off doing by saying, "The quicker I get it done, the sooner I'll be through."

It is the attitude in our mind about people or things that focuses the necessary energy in our body to fulfill our desires.

Energy is flowing through us all the time from the permanent source of our Creator-Sustainer. By our attitudes and will we are choosing how much current to draw from the inexhaustible supply. When we really want a certain result we make the time and space to create that reality.

By our free will we make space in our time to fulfill desires.

In Consuming We Contract; In Loving We Expand

Consuming—Contracting
Loving—Expanding.


We might think it is the opposite, that by consuming we are gaining and by loving we are giving ourselves away.

It is what we do after we consume that matters.

If we use our consumption to fortify ourselves solely, we are reinforcing the false idea that we are separate from that which is outside our own body.

When we use our personal gains as tools of sharing by including others in our circle of caring, we are effectively using our consumption to expand our capacity of loving.

Loving more and more and more
Erases the barrier we thought was there
Filling our life
With more and more and more Love.
