Each Individual Impacts the Field Environment

Can we change our individual, social, and even planetary environments to create the type of environment in which we’d like to live? I believe we can.

Each person’s thoughts, attitudes, and emotions emit energy fields. Your individual field environments not only affect you, your health, and perspective on life, they also can influence your relationships and experiences in your social field environments as you interact with people. Heart coherent energies of genuine love, appreciation, care, and compassion can change a field environment – both locally (say in a meeting you are in) and throughout the world.

HeartMath researchers have also seen that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion – such as care, appreciation, compassion, or love – it has a beneficial effect on our own health and well-being, and can have a positive effect on those around us.

Changing Your Individual Field Environment

Sometimes when we wake up in the morning, our energy field is sunny-side up and bubbly. Then our pitch drops after a few bumpy interactions such as spilling tea, running late for work, and so on. Such frustrations often magnetize more negative thoughts, leaving you more vulnerable to personal energy drain. You can reset the energy of your individual field environment by doing the following:

Stop and relax for a few minutes, while imagining breathing the attitude of ease in through your heart or chest area. This quiets the energy of frustration and anxiety. Then you can re-center yourself in the heart and change your field environment with more positive energy and outlook.
