This is a tool that I learned in a spirituality class. It's simple, easy and works fast to help me remain centered and intentional. Whenever you are confronted with a situation that is challenging and runs the risk of getting the better of you, repeat to yourself out loud or silently, "The God in me is loving the God in ____" and insert the name of the person(s) impacted. Repeat this over and over for a few minutes until you feel the shift happening inside of you. Even if you have to grit your teeth and choke it out at first, do it anyway. You will be surprised how after saying it a few times, your own thoughts and energy will begin to shift.
Now the super cool thing about this is that it not only begins to shift you, it also can have the impact of shifting the other person, and they are not even consciously aware that you are doing it. You may notice that they calm down and that their energy becomes more stable. Remember how thoughts become things and impact our environment and what comes back at us? Well, this is another powerful example of how this can work.
This tool can also be used if you are in need of shifting the energy in the room to a more positive one. If you are in a meeting and the energy is turning negative, or your family is having an off day. You may not notice the shift happen, but rest assured you are having an energetic impact on some level.
I love how Pamla Ashlay-McPherson describes this tool. "People address each other from the part of themselves that has been programmed by this earth life; they forget they are spirit first encased in a body and when we address each other from our spirit to their spirit we speak greater truths. So next time someone is yelling or upset; be still, and in your head repeat over and over, 'The God in me is loving the God in you' and they will stop; as it will bring them to a greater truth without realizing it."
So, next time you are in a challenging situation that threatens your ability to stay in a calm and loving place use this tool, repeat ... The God in me is loving the God in you ... and feel and watch what happens.
