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.
Watch this 90-second video: “Coherence, Emotions and Interconnectedness.”
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.
Changing Your Social Field Environment
A family dinner, a business meeting and a social gathering are all examples of social field environments. When you hear someone say, “You could cut the tension in the room with a knife,” in essence this is referring to a turbulent field environment. Animated discussions in business meetings that spiral down into arguments can leave people in the room feeling, “Why even be in here?” In contrast, you’ve also probably been in places with people communicating from their heart space and heard comments that the energy in the room (field environment) was upbeat, heart-based and inspired creative interaction and solutions. The people felt refreshed and energized by the positive social field environment.
Most people have experienced the situations above. The collective energy in a room makes up the social field environment, which vibrates at a certain pitch. The overall room pitch or vibration is based on the collective pitch of the individuals in the room. Often when a few individuals take the initiative, they can change the collective room vibration by increasing their own pitch.
This can be done by radiating the attitudes of peace and flow into the field environment while doing deep heart listening with the intent to remain in your heart without judgment. Then, sharing from your heart becomes easier and more objective. Though we can’t help it at times, judgments and criticisms are, in most cases, responsible for bringing down the communication pitch in field environments.
With practice, we can learn to reset our personal pitch while communicating with others by returning to deep heart listening. As individuals practice resetting their pitch, the stronger the positive field environment becomes. This makes it easier for all to experience a higher ratio of coherent interaction and saves a great deal of energy.
Changing Our Planetary Field Environment
The planetary field environment encompasses the earth and its inhabitants. Much of it is made up of the collective consciousness of all people. Radiating love from a coherent heart into the planetary field environment increases the positive energy in the field, making it easier for the planet and its inhabitants to shift and transmute accumulated negative energy. Even sending two minutes of loving care a day to Mother Earth can make a big difference. More and more people are feeling the intuitive nudge to participate in these types of energetic exercises because of a growing sense of responsibility as planetary caretakers. It’s a responsibility like taking out the trash while dwelling in a family home.
It also helps to take some time to envision the planet the way you want it to be because thoughts and imagination precede the creation and manifestation of what we are trying to achieve. Besides caring more for the earth, another major facet of the planetary shift is realizing the need to be more responsible for our own personal energy, our thoughts, feelings and actions. This especially will help upgrade our personal, social and global field environments.
Remember, we are always creating an effective or ineffective field environment with whatever thoughts, feelings and attitudes we are experiencing or putting out. We can consciously effect positive change in our personal and social field environments if we choose to do so. Then the positive field environment will multiply our potential to experience a more balanced and joyful life. As one large family living in one big yard, let’s each lend a hand and raise the planetary pitch together.
In Deborah Rozman’s recent column, Nourishing the Collective Heart, she talks about the Global Coherence Initiative, which offers free tools and techniques for increasing your personal coherence and social coherence to change your field environments on the GCI website (www.glcoherence.org) and a virtual global meditation space that is intended to help build a collective energetic field of love to surround our planet, Global Care Room (www.globalcarerooms.org).
