Emotional Awareness in the Paranormal

How do paranormal phenomena such as ghosts and spirits interact and affect our day to day lives? Manipulation of emotional energy is a reality that many people refuse to acknowledge. A disembodied ghost who remains behind in an emotional trap or a nonhuman spirit who is limited by the laws of interaction operates along the same energetic path. We must become aware of how we affect each other through our emotions and in turn realize how we are affected the same. Responsible thought and emotional management is priority in creating our healthy, balanced lives, and that means asking questions.

Before a child understands language it mainly operates though empathy, or reading of emotions. Animals are sensitive to the emotional states as well, as any pet owner will know. Our emotions are not private. Do you ever remember a time when you felt the negativity or positivity on someone without speaking? Emotions are the fuel that runs our lives. Our passions, joys, desires, and fears create our perception of ourselves and the world around us. Our perceptions determine how we receive and process information which leads to intention, then action, then collective reality. You are constantly sending to and receiving emotions from those around you. Not every emotion you feel is yours until you accept it.

What we emit into the world around us we empower. If we send love out we empower other humans and positive phenomena as well and encourage more of the same. If you go through your day full of fear, that energy will be picked up and draw negative people and any spirits of the same emotional level. For example, the man who struggles with alcohol draws to himself any local residual ghosts of the same, so he will not only be struggling with his alcoholism but his desire for it will be magnified by any that are feeding off his actions. Malevolent spirits operate with more purpose because they are in fact aware. They will torment a person by crippling their thinking process with fear, anger, lust, etc. which is translated into thoughts and if we are not aware of our emotions and thoughts, we will react in that emotion, as it then becomes our own.

As paranormal phenomena, spirits and ghosts are limited in their interaction in this physical matter frequency. We as living beings are the creators of our own actions. You are here because you belong here and now. You have purpose and responsibility as a caretaker of our world. The very fact that you are alive and have a body is evidence of your authority to this realm. You have to be tricked or just reactional. They will give you fear, if you are observing your emotions and aware of the different factors involved you will let it pass through you and immediately empower your thoughts. Remember that there is nothing to fear. Choose what you empower in your environment. This is important especially to paranormal investigators who expose themselves to areas thick with activity and stored emotional energy. Always on the forefront in our mind should be the awareness of how we feel and strict observation over our thought processes.
