Humans are a weird species. When we are young we are told to be polite and shake hands, look the person we shake hands with in the eyes and pretend to like them. Who invented that code? And why do parents still believe to pretend is better than to be honest?
When I was a little kid I refused to shake hands with people when their energy was unstable or felt bad. I refused to look them in the eyes and I did not approach. My Mom used to force me into shaking hands because she was taught the Belief that this was what people do. She was not aware of what I felt and translated it into something like: you are stubborn and impolite. My dad used to confirm this by telling me just to listen and to do what I was told. Still I refused. After such an encounter I was sent to my room to think about it. And I did.
I do not blame my parents for their way of thinking, they just acted the way they believed was good for me and polite to The Others. My parents were raised differently but one things was mutual. A lack of self esteem and the inability to stand up for themselves. My father did stand up for himself when he came to a certain point of feeling totally frustrated and angry. Then he could explode. My mother used to cover everything with a blanket of Love and understanding. Nowadays she is able to stand up for herself more and more. I just Love to witness this process in her. My father did give his opinion in conversations more than he used to do.
What did this all mean to me?
I was a child who wanted to stay loyal to what I believe was or felt good to me. So I was the in obedient one, the one who thought and felt different than my two brothers did.
I wanted to be and stay authentic, it caused me a lot of troubles but also gave me a lot of Confidence. I refused to bow my head for the people who yelled at me. I used to look them into their eyes and told them what my beliefs were. That I respected they believed in different things and that was totally fine with me. I also told them they could not convince me I “needed” to be the same as they were or “had” to act the way they acted. I talked about equivalence, respect and a better world. They just laughed at me and told me I was crazy.
Funny, as me and my two brothers grew up, it seemed to be specially my youngest brother who started to use his Intuitive Insights more during the last years. Therefore we Connect way better than before. Another process I feel very grateful for.
Instead of shaking hands only or kissing someone on the cheek three times, something we in general do in Holland, the Americans Hug…They shake hands when there is a distance, they hug when they want to give Energy to the person they meet. They make eye contact in a different way. They seem to know why they Hug instead of only shake hands. They generally do not kiss. Too intimate, something you save for people who are very close to you, I guess.
Being a Dutch gal, I feel way more at ease the way the American people greet one another.
When we look a bit more into this Hugging ritual, we can see we exchange Energy…
Most of the times we Hug and send Loving Energy, we even tend to close our eyes for a moment, so we are able to “inhale” this Loving Energy into our entire system. To all levels of our system. And it is like a beam of Light is flowing into our veins, we feel healed, we feel grateful, we feel moved, we feel much better after such an Energy boost.
It can also be someone pretends to be Loving and hugs us. We feel the opposite of a Loving Hug, we withdraw our Energy, we close our windows of our system and we can even lock them, to protect ourselves.
Sometimes we are not aware of someone’s intentions and we believe the hug is sincere and well meant. Until we Feel it. Until that moment we are hugged and NOTHING happens. We can look the other person in the eye and see NOTHING. We can hear this person talk great stuff but it does not land in our mind. That’s the time you can understand the difference in Energy levels.
Some people talk great but they don’t walk their talk.
During the campaigns I can see strange things happen. The person who seems to have the most money can be president more easy because they can put in more money for their campaign. Just watch their eyes. Watch the way they can’t withhold a smile when they are so proud of themselves. All ego boosters, all emptiness. Everything done for one goal, to be someone they are not.
I will not be able to vote since I am Dutch, but when I would be able to vote, I would vote for honesty, reliability, for a president who truly Cares about his people. I will never judge a president who was not able to help America with all of the goals he set as he started. That would be crazy to ask for. Do remember it’s all about politic and one can’t decide entirely on his own. However I do believe in a president who can look me straight in the eye, who’s hand shake is firm but not overruling. I believe in a president who can feel moved, who wants to be there for his Americans. I feel Grateful when I see how much President Barack Obama has already done. How much his wife Michelle has done for this beautiful land called The United States of America. And I feel moved by the thought he keeps his promises. He stands for what he says. No empty words. But well meant. Heart spoken.
We all Connect by Energy. We all divide by Energy. We all Love by the Power of Energy.
I want to feel Connected with The Light, look a person straight in the eye and shake hands when I feel the Energy is good, and Hug when I feel Loving Energy. Not because someone else is teaching or telling me to do so. But because I feel it and I want to live my Life in a pure and honest way.
We all can make a difference.
How about you?
