If you walk into a gathering, it is very easy to absorb the mood and emotional state of the crowd. But if you remember that the not so visible spiritual realm is part of your environment as well, you will feel protected and supported by the positivity of guides and helpers in all situations.
Don’t underestimate the power of focus. What you focus on will determine the quality of your experience. Expend your focus and you will feel expansion. Keep in mind that expansion feels happy and contraction doesn’t.
