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.

It was so refreshing to read your article, thank you! Its a reminder to us all that we do count and can affect change simply by sending positive vibrations through our thoughts and feelings! That is powerful. We are more powerful than we realise. Thanks again!

Thank you for sharing. It is so true that energy follows intention. It is exciting to know that there is a collective group who are intentionally sending good energy throughout the world. Keep up the good work and keep us informed. We will see world peace one person at a time.

I definitely have not to absorp all the negative things that day brings but insist to myself to think, immagine positive and to be it. Find nice words and smile also when it is hard because of ignorance or not care of people versus my work, other people, animals (especially)... I think this is difficult to realize but I am convinced it works! Thank you for information you share in this article cause they show the way.... You know, just to watch this small picture of calendar evokes relax and peace in my mind..... simply ad to my favourites to find it when need. Thanks again!

Sadly, family as a basic unit of society has its fair share of animosity. Indeed, how such tension can invade and cloud the occassion instead of bringing out the sunshine. Such hypocrisy in a family is tragic. Yes, we should be more engaging, happily.

Am so grateful for these informations, for this new science! But find it so difficult to really go the new way. The old patterns and beliefs are so strong. But it's really worth it to try the new way again and again each day. Maybe our only chance to save our world?

very interesting, thanks for sharing...

We are all connected and now more so than ever we need to focus on the every day blessings we have and pay it forward by sending our love to the precious Earth that provides us with so many basic necessities.

I have cats who wake me up, and then I go back to bed for the rest of the night.

In the past, my type made me feel bad about myself - good type to recognize in advance!

Thanks Ann for providing the great information from Dr Weber.
