My cable and internet went out yesterday. First, I had no idea how addicted I was to my devices, but that’s for another post. I finished all my housework and caught up on some reading. When it was time to wind down for the night, I wanted to watch something on TV. I dug through my old DVDs and found my DVDs of Heroes, a drama that focuses on people with superpowers. One character stuck with me through today. He had the power to create mini blackholes that sucked up everything in its path. Not only was the power cool, but the visual effect was amazing.
Today was a pretty normal day, but it seemed like everyone was on edge. My coworker snapped at me because he couldn’t get Excel to cooperate with him, my boss miscommunicated a project to me and was flustered when I didn’t provide him with what he needed, and my work bestie was in a bad mood since she didn’t get time for her vacation approved. This constant negativity just began to bog me down.
Inspired by Heroes, I decided to make a little blackhole of my own. I held out my hand and visualized a point of black light. I saw the light spin counterclockwise, slow at first, but faster as I continued to breathe and focus more energy into my hand. I then visualized the light turning into a cone that sucked all the negativity that came into my presence into oblivion. Slowly, I moved the blackhole to just over my left shoulder and willed it to be anchored there.
Throughout the rest of the day, any time I interacted with someone who was exuding negativity, I saw that energy be sucked right into the blackhole and out of my space. It worked so well that most people who walked over to vent out a random frustration immediately stopped when they stood in front of me.
Like most of the magic I’ve worked during this challenge, I’m going to add my blackhole technique to my magical Swiss Army knife to use in the future.
