If you are a member of my mailing list, I have done the work which allows you to be protected from someone else’s emotion being trapped in your body.
All you have to do each morning is to say “Shields Up”. I imagine a steel door being sealed all around my entire being. It sounds sort of odd, but it does help with trapping an emotion from someone that is close to you or projecting around you.
For instance, if someone comes into your space and is in a very negative state of being. Their emotion will not be trapped in your body when you have your shields up. They may cause you to trap your own emotion, but their emotion will not be trapped in your body.
So, that takes care of the possibility of someone else’s emotion being trapped in you. What about you trapping your own emotion because of some event during the day stirred a certain emotion in you? What prevents you from trapping that emotion?
Dr. Nelson has recommended that we use a very simple phrase, here it is “That is curious”. I have used this when I would have normally been angry at someone or have had an emotion begin stirring inside. Actually it happened to me recently and “angry” was not the word I would have used. More like “furious”, however, I remembered what Dr. Nelson said and I said to myself, “hmmm? That is a curious way to act.” For some reason by saying that, it neutralized my emotion and I actually almost laughed.
You might find another phrase. The trick is to get your mind thinking about the situation in another way immediately. By doing so, you will not trap that emotion. I believe that if you find the correct mechanism, your trapping of emotions will be minimized.
I know that both of these solutions may seem silly. However, I have actually witnessed the power to which both of them bring. Truth is, what do you have to lose by trying them? You have a lot to gain if they actually work for you.
