HOW TO CHANGE OUR OWN PERCEPTION OF ANOTHER PERSON


In his Afterlife Knowledge Guidebook, which is a home study course in Afterlife Knowledge, Bruce Moen gives instruction on the art and practice of projecting Love Energy toward a specific target.

After working with that particular exercise, I began to take it and do my own things with it. I hope Moen doesn’t mind! It seems to be human nature.

In an earlier post, I discussed a discovery in Psychology which suggested that if we change how we think and feel about someone, their own attitude toward us will change also. Relationships can be mended with this technique, even if a lot of damage has been done.

Love has a way of erasing darkness and its side effects. To try to deal with troubles between people in any other way is very complex and time consuming, often doomed to failure. But when we deal with a troubled relationship with these straightforward yet challenging techniques from our own heart, conflict seems to dissolve and disappear.

Can you recall an instance where you felt deeply loved? Can you remember your tiny child toddling over to your bed in the morning and planting a big wet kiss on your cheek? Or the way your dog looks at you with those big brown adoring eyes just because you came home from the store? Can you remember the start of a romantic relationship when the Other thought you were the most wonderful gift ever created for another human being? Any situation where you were aware of feeling loved!

You might have been in the forest watching a curtain of massed falling leaves blowing sideways in front of you and you suddenly were awestruck and aware that Majesty had arranged for you to be right there at that moment and show you how beloved you were.

My husband, now deceased, once came home from a walk by the seashore and began trying to explain what had happened to him out there alone on the rocks by the ocean. He could not find the words, his speech stumbled, he tried desperately to tell me that something beyond description had touched him and met with him there. He had never experienced much in the way of spiritual moments before, and it was his undoing, he was so deeply moved.

If you can remember some moment when you felt beloved, then focus on that moment. Remember the feeling of being loved, how it felt. Then take your conscious awareness and place it firmly in your heart area. With your eyes closed, focus on that feeling of being beloved and on that awareness that your Mind is now in your Heart.

Picture your Mind and your feelings-of-being-loved together there in your heart. Allow your heart feelings to expand. Build on this for a few minutes. Be brave. Don’t panic and quit. It won’t hurt you, even though it might feel scary. Allow the love to build and if it hurts, take note of where the hurt seems to settle in your body. You may be able to find an answer to some problem by noticing that.

After you have built the love energy up high for a few minutes, then select someone to send it to. Maybe someone you have a great relationship with, maybe someone you have been having trouble with.

You can find different ways of “sending” the love. Anything from a squirt gun to a laser beam or a stream of fragrant flowers flowing out to the person. Let the love build continuously as you Send.

You will know when to stop. There is almost a muscular indication that it is time to relax.

If you enjoyed this exercise, then do it at least once a week, sending love to any target you choose. Watch what happens to your relationships.

It’s interesting to note what happens in our own ego and Mind when we send Love to someone who we are struggling with. There is such relief in just simply sending Love, forget the arguments and the “who is right” syndrome. Just bask in the sunshine of Love for a few minutes. Watch what happens to how you, yourself, view that person you have been having a hard time with.

It’s hard to be mad and send Love at the same time!

Blogging is not only a pleasure, it is a basic necessity...I don't know how I have lived so much of my life without a blog. It gives me a place to write, a motivation to write, lots of reasons for reading lots of mind-expanding and challenging books, plenty to think about and be happy about. It has become a centerpiece of my retirement life along with my friends and pets, my faith and my afterlife journeys.
