Since being introduced to the Bars and Access Consciousness I’ve added some great tools for increasing my awareness to my life. Some of them are profound. One of those profound tools I’d like to share with you is asking the question, “is this mine?”
So many times we take on other peoples (and other living beings, animals, plants, the Earth itself) pain and suffering. Say you’re driving down the road, listening to a great song on the radio in your happy place. All of a sudden you start to feel angry or sad for no logical reason. Why? What is this about? The best way I can explain it is that we are all connected to each other by energy. Everything is energy! If you are sensitive, intuitive or empathic you will pick up these energies from others more easily. It can be a problem. Why would you want to carry someone else’s baggage around? There is no good reason, unless you’re into self punishment.
So, what I do is ask myself, “is this mine?” And if the energy lightens that means it’s not, so then I say to myself, “return to sender with awareness” until it’s gone. When you return to sender it’s not a cruel or mean thing to do, it merely gives the sender an opportunity to change their situation as they are now aware, whereas before, more than likely, they weren’t even aware that they were sending these thoughts out to others.
I’ll give you an example: the other day I was walking into a store and my right foot felt a sharp, excruciating pain when I stepped down on it. It was bad, like making it back to my car was a question, “can I make it?”
This happened totally out of the blue, so I asked, “is this mine?” And the pain lessened considerably, so I returned it to sender with awareness until the pain was completely gone. By the way – This took all of about 20 seconds, it’s not a long process in case you were concerned about that.
As this was going on I noticed an elderly woman in one of those mobil chairs ahead of me going into the store and I was pretty sure that it belonged to her. Wow, it was understandable that she was not walking around, because she couldn’t! While we were both in the store shopping the pain came back again and I noticed she was close by. This was even more validation for me that we are all connected, some of us send out a powerful energy and some of us receive. The thing is that it does no good to be in pain or sadness, depression, etc if it’s not yours. Why would you do that to yourself?
If you were to stay in this question for about 3 days you would experience more peace and such lightness you’d wonder how you ever got along without this tool!
