When the temperature rises, so do tempers! Do you think that the increase would make people do what they normally wouldn’t do? I wondered that myself this past week as our air conditioner died and we called a repairman to assist.
He arrived late in the night to take a look (9:30 p.m.) after an incredibly hot and humid day. At first I considered his “sharp” and short attitude as understandable because he had been on the road since six a.m. on repair calls. Well, at first! I stopped focusing my entire attention on what was being discussed between him and my husband and started focusing on his energy. What was this guy’s vibe!
Yea, that’s when I “heard” what was really being said. It seems our air conditioner died, guess it had suffered through its last summer. But it was the cost that energetically “rubbed” me the wrong way. Yea, it was high, choked the air right out of my lungs. More so, it was the energy that came with this guys words that got the “hackles” up on the back of my neck!
I did some research and discovered another company could do the install for $3,000.00 less. Now, I’m a business woman, I understand competitive pricing but this guy’s energy spoke louder than his words and what I heard him say was “you are about to be royally screwed!”
How many times have you encountered people that somehow “rub” you the wrong way and you can’t figure out why? Do you even pay attention to what your “gut” is trying to tell you? We all possess “intuition”, but we all don’t use it. It takes practice but the first step is to begin to sense your own energy. It’s like knowing where your property line ends and your neighbors begin. We install fences to define our property yet we don’t install “boundaries” for our energy fields.
When you know where your “fencing” on your body exists, your personal perimeter, then you know what is yours and what belongs to your neighbor. In this case, what belongs to the rotten repairman!
Your energy, just like everyone else’s, has a language and it speaks the truth – ALWAYS, EVERY TIME. If it isn’t in alignment with your words then it sends out a wave a discordant energy and people sense it! They might not know what is throwing them off and making them feel uneasy, however they will react unfavorably. Trust is built with your word and if your word doesn’t match your energy, there will be no trust – whether you are conscious of what is happening or not!
Jill Bolte Taylor, author of “A Stroke of Insight” says it best, “be responsible for the energy you bring into the room”. Be who you are, be authentic/genuine and the energy you bring into the room will speak loud, clear, and transparent even if you screw up and have trouble expressing yourself!
Here’s hoping you enjoy summer and your air conditioner stays healthy!!!
