As we grow, become more aware, and love, our thoughts and actions change as well at Wealthy Affiliate. This is not only due to our goals changing but the resources we draw on become more productive.
As we ‘wake’ to the world as it truly is, the truth of it all changes us from the core outward. We are still human so we still experience and project negativity, but the magnitude and length of time being negative changes.
I still get angry at some fairly dumb things, but where before I would become a ball of rage and self-destruction, I accept it as it is and smile to my heart. I thank it for being able to experience an array of emotions and through that love and acceptance, my rage subsides.
Through the years of experience and learning, I have come to understand the pitfalls the life can trick us into stepping into.Here is a list of some of those emotions and concepts that you will naturally let go of as you reach higher level of consciousness.
I talked on this a little but anger and hate are sadly dominant aspects of our society today. Anger is like a fire in our souls, that clouds our eyes with smoke and chokes up true expressions. The feeling from anger is nauseating and entirely destructive.
After spending long enough in the presence of love, hatred makes us feel physically ill.The once perceived strenght that comes from anger, is seen as one dimensional and unproductive.
Jealousy is a direct descendant of comparative thought. We look at what we have and compare it to another. We then judge the two parties off superficial elements. As we grow as people and fill our lives with love and works of compassion, we stop worrying about what others have.
We acknowlege our own successes and failures as being precious and irriplaceable.This make our mental and spiritual ” belongings” priceless. The joy attached to experiences and loved ones has shown us the flimsiness of the pursuit of physical objects.
As we see others with a deeper understanding or a more powerfully expressed form of love, we are glad to have witnessed it. We are filled with joy at the success of others, because everyone deserves to be happy.
3.0 Fear of Failure
For you to have built up your consciousness and prepare your tools of mindfulness, you have undoubtedly stumbled more than once.
But as we grow older and wiser, we feared scrapped knees less and less.We know that the harm of failure only extends as far as a lesson not learned. We welcome all opportunities of growth and knowledge.
Our ‘tools’ wouldn’t be nearly so sharp if we never ‘sharpened’ them on suffering.
This thought child of comparative thought is normally one of the first negative formations to leave us.Insecurity cannot prevail where there is acceptance, love and hope for the future.We remember that we are a perfect and constantly evolving form of beauty.
The future and past are nothing more than mysteries and stories. We don’t allow the unknown to cause us discomfort.We have faced it down many times and survives for the better.
If someone wrongs us, the natural urge at one point was to return the favor. As we conquer our own negative formations, we come to recognize the pain that fuels the antagonists in our life.
We don’t hate them, we don’t want to inject more negativity into the world.Staying wary of potential harm, we avoid it or try to save it from the negativity of their actions.
Signs you are an Ambivert: Someone Who Is Both Introverted And Extroverted
Many of us consider ourselves both an introvert and extrovert depending on our surroundings.
- Which one is more dominant for you?
- And which one do you find yourself struggling with?
The classic trait of being an introvert isn’t necessarily being shy, but not getting as much energy from interacting with those around you.When you get down to it, studies actually show that has to do with our brains.Introverted people have less dopamine released when they interact with people.
“A 2012 study, completed by Randy Buckner of Harvard University discovered that introverts tended to have larger, thicker gray matter in their prefrontal cortex — a region of the brain that is linked to abstract thought and decision-making — while extroverts had less gray matter.”
1.0 You Get Less Energy From People
Many of us have combinations of introverted and extroverted traits within us.One of the most common traits of an introvert is getting less energy from interacting with people. To certain degree, we all have this.
Some people can go to a party and talk to almost anyone, enjoying light conversation with no specific outcome.While many introverts enjoy deep, more involved conversations that take more energy, so they don’t start them in the first place.
To have simple and shallow conversations can take way more energy than it should. It takes energy to seem interested when you’re not and to keep a level of poise when you’re not completely comfortable with the person you’re talking to.
2.0 You Want To Be Around People, But You Also Don’t Want To Be Around People
This is something many of us experience if we’re around people that we don’t necessarily like.When we’re surrounded by people who don’t understand us or our point of view, interacting with them can be incredibly exhausting.
If you have an idea you want to share but you know you won’t be understood, that takes more energy than you might realize.Also, because of this modern age riddled with technology, many of us enjoy the company of people but still feel compelled to be on our phones or the computer.
Many of us have experienced a desire to be around people, but still get a certain comfort on the Internet that humans can’t always provide.This might be because there is no verbal interaction or requirements, and you’re constantly looking at things that entertain you.
3.0 You Enjoy Attention, But Not Too Much
If you’re in a setting like a bar or a party, and you’re enjoying the attention you’re getting, this can be a great source of energy for you.
The moment it shifts and starts getting awkward or uncomfortable, then everything changes. It can be fun to get attention in a group of friends where you know everyone and feel like you aren’t being judged.
For many of us, the feeling of being judged is one of the scariest.There’s a balance between being the one speaking and having all the energy drawn to you, and then giving it back.
When you’re in a situation like that, it’s important to pass the energy around through verbal or physical communication so you don’t feel burdened or overwhelmed.
4.0 You Want To Share Ideas, But Don’t Want To Be Judge
The concept of an introvert or extrovert is greatly dictated by our environment.If you know you’re around people who don’t fundamentally understand the same ideas as you, wanting to share your thoughts but being too scared of getting judged takes a lot of energy out of you.
For many introverts, they want to create a connection and understanding but are sometimes too scared to make that first initiation. Humans are programmed to be afraid of judgment because we don’t want to be accused of anything negative.
You know you’re interacting with someone who is an introvert, make the initiation to talk about a topic that you know they enjoy.This will give them an immense amount of energy because they didn’t need to start the conversation, and it shows that you’re interested in it as well.
5.0 You Break Out Of Your Shell When You Feel Safe
This really is basic human nature. When we are in a safe space, we feel free to be ourselves and say whatever comes to our mind.When we are in stressful or chaotic environments, we are usually in a more survival based mindset.
Many people will consider themselves depressed, crazy or upset because they think something is wrong with them, when really it is their environment that is not in support of them.
Make sure you are surrounded by are loving people, and breaking out of your shell will come naturally to you.
