Each Individual Impacts the Field Environment

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.

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?
