Social media is a great thing, but it can also be a real pain. There are so many people who hide behind their smart phones, or keyboard and monitor and become very brave to type things and say things that they wouldn’t usually. People with built up negative energy thrive on these sites because somewhere in Social Media Land will be another very negative person just waiting to join in on the other person’s pity party. I just have to shake my head and send these poor individuals love and positive vibes.
We have a restaurant and its incredible how cruel some people can be on the comments on our social media pages. My husband and I sometimes just shake our heads at the comments. Some people must have such built up anger and bitterness inside of them if all it takes is a longer wait than promised, or a stranger made a mistake making your food, for them to blow their fuse, then all I can encourage is sending these people love. If this makes or breaks your day and makes a person so angry that they resort to unleashing their anger and frustrations on a Facebook page, these people need more than me sending them love. They really need to find a different way to channel their energy.
One particular lost soul actually made two negative comments within hours on just two regular posts. Good thing for the delete button. I quickly deleted these negative comments and went on with my day. I could be judgmental, and get angry or upset, but I don’t. I know that we can’t give what we don’t have inside of us to give. I am constantly trying to learn how to make my life and the people’s lives around me better. I try to avoid this exhibited behavior at all cost. That’s why I love the delete button so much. I don’t have to participate in this vengeful behavior or even look at it. I have my own karmic path to travel, and I don’t want to get messed up on anyone else’s path.
I know I’ve mentioned the book “Power Verses Force” written by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., and his great Map of Consciousness before I’m previous blogs. This has all the emotions and their level on the vibrational scale. Of course, all the negative emotions like scorn, hate, craving, anxiety, regret, despair, blame and humiliation being in the bottom of his chart. Well, Dr. Joe Dispenza, author of “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” has a chart that is called, “Elevated Emotions Vs. Limited Emotions”. He further categorize these emotions which he calls “Survival Emotions” or “Selfish Emotions” which include: doubt, fear, anger, insecurity, worry, anxiety, judgment, competition, hostility, sadness, guilt, shame, depression, and lust. These are all emotions that are holding us back as human beings. They are slowly killing us and like his book suggests, we really have to break this habit of being ourselves! Break ourselves free of these selfish emotions and start to control our minds so we can live a totally fulfilled life.
I recommend both of these books to anyone who is ready to start changing themselves internally. You have to start changing yourself internally before you are ever going to see any changes externally. It is the same with any part of our lives. So many people are not happy with their bodies and they are all looking for that secret diet pill, the special diet, or an excellent workout regime that will promise fast results to the body of our dreams. If only people would realize that once you’re are happy on the inside, the outside won’t matter any longer and it literally will take care of itself. You will love yourself just the way you’re are made.
This unhappiness with your body image is just one of many ways that we can be unhappy with our lives. Other forms of unhappiness comes from marriages, children, financial situations, health problems, our jobs, and the list goes on. The same things holds true. If you can find ways to delete the negative internal dialogue of yourself, all the external factors will change. Next time you feel these negative emotions rising inside of you, press your delete button and have them disappear from your internal monitor system. As Dr. Dispenza says, “To truly change is to begin to think and act differently in the same circumstances in your life.”
I’m going to circle around to another one of my favorite books written by Don Miguel Ruiz called “The Four Agreements”. The second agreement in his book is, “Don’t take anything personally”, and that is exactly what we have to remember when people are striking out on social media or anywhere else in our lives. We can’t strike back with negative emotions that they are typing us up because then we are letting our internal systems lower to their levels. Just press the delete button again and keep your internal system flying with these other high vibrations such as, gratitude, love, joy, inspiration, peace, wholeness, trust, knowingness, presence and empowerment. Then you will see your life change for the better.
I know it happens to everyone all the time. People are constantly reviewing others whether it is on a social media site or just in life in general. Instead of joining their social media or life’s pity party, press the delete button, don’t take it personal and send the person love. As Dr. Dispenza also says, “If you can’t control your mind, everything and everyone else will.”
Take control of your emotions and internally strive to have a constant high level vibration ignited on the inside of you and watch your external circumstances change. Do what I do with the negative comments that come to our Facebook page… press delete and keep loving life!
