Messages about emotion

Brenda Hoffman

You are letting go of so many pieces of your Old Age life. Some of you are excited to do so. Others feel as if parts of you are torn from you. As you move further into this New Age, such shifts will become easier. Moving into joy requires reviewing all parts of your being – including those no longer right for the new you. But by doing so, you might find yourself releasing pieces you believed were your strength, purpose or joy.

As you continue to expand your being with new splinters, you will need to adjust both your physical and emotional bodies. When your earth being was a mere 10% of your totality – as has been true for eons, you most often knew how you would react to an event. Now that your being is expanding to 20% or even 60% of your totality, you may notice many more variations in your reactions.

I’ve written, and I speak a lot, about how we are contagious, although not in the usual sense of the word where we catch the cold from each other, but in how our emotions are contagious. Social network research shows that if you feel happy, for instance, you not only infect your friends with happiness, but you also infect your friends’ friends and even your friends’ friends’ friends – out to a radius of three social steps. This is partly facilitated through mirror neurons, specialised cells in the brain that mirror our physical expressions of emotion.

I hope this finds you well and happy. Today the topic at hand is judgment of others and being with what is. I have found that many people when dealing with another person that is in distress, especially of an emotional nature are quick to try to “cheer them up” or somehow shift them out of it. What is the reason for this?
