“Consciousness exists on two levels: as seeds and as manifestations of these seeds. Suppose we have a seed of anger in us. When conditions are favorable, that seed may manifest as a zone of energy called anger. It is burning, and it makes us suffer a lot. It is very difficult for us to be joyful at the moment the seed of anger manifests. Every time a seed has an occasion to manifest itself, it produces new seeds of the same kind. If we are angry for five minutes, new seeds of anger are produced and deposited in the soil of our unconscious mind during those five minutes. That is why we have to be careful in selecting the kind of life we lead and the emotions we express. When I smile, the seeds of smiling and joy have come up. As long as they manifest, new seeds of smiling and joy are planted. But if I don’t practice smiling for a number of years, that seed will weaken, and I may not be able to smile anymore.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step

When we go down on a sub-atomic level we do not find matter, but pure energy.
This means that, in fact, nothing rests – everything in the universe is vibrating at one speed or another.
Even something as “still” as a marble statue is filled with millions upon millions of subatomic particles “running around” and “popping” with energy .
When talking about living beings, “vibrations” radiate from a person’s presence based on their overall emotional state.
“Happy” and “upbeat” beings vibrate at a relatively high frequency whereas “depressed” or “negative” beings vibrate at a relatively low frequency.
What influences our interpretation of their vibration is the glowing combination of their body language, tone of voice, context of conversation, and choice of self-expression.
So when you say that you can ‘feel’ a person’s presence or you get a ‘gut-feeling’ about someone, you’re getting that from their vibration. Continue reading
“For many years of my life I thought one came down with a mood just as one comes down with a cold. But slowly I learned that moods are a product of purposeful unconsciousness and can be rectified by the very consciousness one worked so hard to evade.” ~ Robert A. Johnson, He
“The truth is, in order to experience a feeling, you must first have a thought that produces that feeling.” ~ Richard Carlson, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
“When you’re in an ill mood, learn to pass it off as simply that: an unavoidable human condition that will pass with time, if you leave it alone. A low mood is not the time to analyze your life.” ~ Richard Carlson, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
“Subordinates look for their bosses to be positive, in good humor, and cheerful. They aren’t supposed to be emotional or have bad days. but leaders are guman, too, and when they are in a lousy mood and snap at a subordinate, it can have a devastating effect.” ~ Donald T. Phillips, Lincoln on Leadership
