Or, is it all about perception?

We have all said it at one time or another, “Oh my, I’ve got to get away from all this negative energy!” Well, is it really negative energy, or are we projecting or perceiving it to be so? This is a great debate among spiritualists and I’d like to offer my opinion on it. In short, my answer is perhaps a little bit of both. Here’s why:

First off, it is very common for our own energy to project onto persons, places, and yep- even things. Our moods; what’s on our minds, can certainly influence our environment, hence what we may perceive. If we ourselves are negative, we will see a lot of negative. The same is true if we are positive- we would see more positive.

Moving right along, let’s look at a “negative” presence. I’m sure we’ve all seen the “Eeyore types,” (the character from Winnie the Pooh,) who are always down and always stuck in a bad mood, seeing everything as icky.

Is it us or them?

Both still!


Why? Because even people who appear to be full of strife and never-ending drama, hold beauty inside them. Just as how one perceives a storm. Some of us marvel in the beauty of the lightning while others are frightened by its power and potential damage. When we look at others as a perfect act of nature (like a storm,) we will no longer have the capacity to fear it, loathe it, or judge it. And maybe even appreciate it.



With all that being said, there is a paradox to this, because if we believe in Balance, (which I do,) how can negative exist without positive?

Simply put, it can’t.

So, in conclusion, maybe, just maybe, the negative is there so we might KNOW positive AND learn to accept negative; or, rather, the perception of it.


…Then again, perhaps neither exist!


Happy contemplating ; )

    Interesting take on it Jenny and you’re right, it can be a bit of a paradox. I’d like to offer my take on it if I may…
    We all have our ups and downs. Days when we’re up and days when we’re not so up or even when we’re downright down. Our own individual vibrational energies are in a constant state of flux and if we’re at the higher end of the vibrational scale one day, really up and we encounter someone who is at the lower end, we definitely see that person as down or even ‘negative’. But in reality, there is no negative energy. To me that’s like saying there’s negative light when actually there is only varying degrees of light (or energy).

    Energy can be much like water in as much it tries to seek it’s own level. That being said, when we encounter someone who is vibrating at a lower frequency than us, our higher vibrational frequency will help to raise their’s while at the same time, their lower vibrational frequency can’t help but lower our’s. That’s why we might sometimes say something like “Geez, John Doe really brought me down today”, meaning in reality that John Doe was draining me.

      Wow, I really like your take on this, too. It’s beautiful how we can share our thoughts; however differing at times, they are still on the same “frequency” so to speak. <3
