Beliefs are transmitted whenever thought forms that are like one another come into contact. What happens is that one consciousness scans another consciousness, seeking to find a level of agreement. Thought forms that meet in agreement amplify one another.
The way in which this happens -whether the contact is positive and creative, or negative and destructive - is always governed by the qualities each person brings to the interchange.
Magnetism is the greatest medium for transmitting beliefs, the highest form. In order to be magnetic, a person must be in touch with his or her higher Self; their essence, and must also have thought waves that are in tune and in alignment with their essence or the core values of their purpose in life. Another person who may or may not be aware that they hold similar values -will respond to the magnetic attraction. It is an experience that is always intriguing, and often joyful.
The person gets connected to the higher values they hold within themselves, yet are still in the process of discovering. This is a tremendously pleasant thing to experience. They may feel challenged toward growth, yet in a positive way. They will feel uplifted, with the potential to keep on feeling that way.
Beliefs can also be transmitted by lower thought waves, but the form this takes is hypnotic rather than magnetic. Instead of feeling uplifted, the person is likely to feel manipulated, drawn by something that they actually dislike. Or they may feel brought down and inwardly want to somehow escape, to block the transmission, to prevent the negativity from taking root. Have you ever listened politely to someone, while inside you realized that they were expressing unhealthy thoughts, something you wanted no part of? We've all had that experience.
What you feel in a moment like that is your higher values desiring to release themselves from lower influences.
Any thinking mind is influential. And it is extremely important to distinguish between the state of merely thinking and the state of being aware. The first requires only an ego that wants to get whatever things it desires at the time. It happens more or less automatically. The second requires an ability to step outside of, and see beyond, the ego. It happens by realizing that real connection comes from inner sources, and from nourishing the calling to stay in touch with what is high vibrational within you.
Only a person who is aware can be magnetic. Awareness, in fact, creates the ideal conditions for magnetism to flourish. We are all called by the concerns of the ego, and we all feel the tug of fears. Your will to be aware causes your thought waves to return to a higher plane. In this way, Will fortifies magnetism. The more your thoughts and your higher values remain in close harmony, the more powerful your magnetism will be. Whenever magnetism is strong, so is positive influence. If magnetism is combined with a passionate desire to influence others in a positive way, it is even more effective.
However, it is possible for influence to be strong even when magnetism is weak. Negative influence also flows between minds, sometimes powerfully. We can realize that an influence coming to us is negative simply because it does not possess magnetic quality. It may have strength, but it does not feel like a blossoming. It does not communicate a sense of vitality. Although it extends the possibility of feeling in agreement with another mind, it does not refresh your Spirit. It appeals, instead, to your fears. A person who recognizes their higher values will release themselves from this kind of influence.
So, although negative thoughts can be transmitted between minds, they cannot be transmitted to someone who is magnetic. Why is this true? When a person's thoughts are true to their values, their mind will only accept influences that are resonant with their values, that feel like fresh verses for a deeply familiar song.
A magnetic person, aided by their will, releases any thoughts that clash with their inner song. A magnetic person knows inner harmony, and will always listen for the presence of alignment and oneness in the music of the voices they hear.
Celebrating your magnetism,
