A man I spoke to recently told me he’d opted to be a loner, because people always wanted something from him. “People either want money from me, or they want to bend my ear with their problems,” he said.
I’ve noticed a significant increase in customers asking me lately just how they can go about protecting their energy fields. This tells me that individuals are becoming very aware of how they are being affected by others, who bring negativity into their home or work environment. They come home from work, not exhausted from labor, but from what is often called a “toxic work environment”. Even a phone conversation can be draining, if the person on the receiving end receives nothing but woes or anger.
You cannot expect to live a positive life if you hang with negative people ~ Joel Osteen
A lack of emotional balance, and thoughts as to how we can avoid unnecessary toxic energy, is becoming more and more of a consideration to many of us. Our endocrine and nervous systems are particularly affected by our thoughts, actions and interactions with others. I am of the opinion that the influence of toxic energy on our systems is vastly underestimated in our modern world.
Years ago, I consulted a brilliant homeopath for what turned out to be an overactive thyroid. He diagnosed through reflexology and his acute intuition. After my diagnosis, he said to me: “I will give you some Muti (a Zulu word for alternative medicine, used frequently in Southern Africa). But until you sort out your emotional situation, it won’t make a big difference. The thyroid is, what I call, the gland of the emotions.”
I will never forget his words. He also reminded me that taking on other people’s emotional stuff equates to us taking on their life journey.
Have you ever seen imagery captured by an electron microscope, which reveals the vastly different chemical components between tears of laughter, joy, and grief, or from peeling onions? The difference is fascinating, which just goes to prove how our emotions affect the overall chemical balance in our bodies.

Medical tests have proven, for example, that people high on positive emotions were three times less likely to succumb to a virus. Our emotions have the capacity to harm and heal, both physically and psychologically, and below are some side effects of both negative and positive emotions:
Forgiveness – longer lifespan and boosted immune system. Improves cardiovascular health, lowering blood pressure.
Gratitude – it has a powerful effect on our emotional well-being and sleep pattern when we acknowledge the good aspects of life. We boost our immunity when we count our blessings, which lowers blood pressure and speeds healing.
Contentment and Love – triggers oxytocin, and when you feel connected spiritually, the heart secretes oxytocin and the tissues receive oxygen.
Singing another’s praises – lowers cholesterol.
Anxiety – can double the severity of allergic symptoms.
Crying – tears help move stress hormones from the body.
Arguing – if you argue on a regular basis, the healing of wounds can take twice as long! Immune molecules called cytokines trigger inflammation; high levels of these molecules are linked to arthritis, diabetes and other immune disorders.
To be of good quality, you have to excuse yourself from the presence of shallow and callow minded individuals ~ Michael Bassey Johnson
Jealousy – This complex mixture of anger, stress and fear is the most powerful and painful of human emotions and hard to control. The fight or flight response is intense and blood pressure is raised.
Stress – Research shows that short bouts of stress boost our immunity, but chronic stress can leave us in flight or fight mode, in which our body can turn off its ability to repair.
Feeling down – Apathy and depression are linked to low levels of the brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters.
The giggles – Studies on the effects of laughter show that mood boosting beta-endorphins increase significantly when we have a fit of the giggles. Sleep and cellular repair are aided when human growth hormone rises. Even thinking about something funny reduces stress.
Being in love – Research shows that being in love raises the levels of a nerve growth factor, a hormone-like substance that improves memory. This calms the body and mind.
For optimal health and a more peaceful way of life on your spiritual path, avoid those who drain you, or pull you down. Invoke psychic protection on a regular basis to shield yourself from those you have no choice but to be around.
