Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
The Best Defense Is the High Energy of Love
According to the laws of electricity, electrical energy flows from a positive state to a negative. Your energy behaves like electrical energy. So, if you are manifesting a high positive energy state and come in contact with a lower negative energy state, energy naturally moves from the higher to the lower, not vice versa. This means when you are manifesting a high, positive energy state, and you come into the presence of a low energy state (like a lot of negative or angry people) one of two things will happen. One is that the negative energy can possibly drain you, since energy flows from a high state to a low. You might begin to feel tired and become negative as well. But on the other hand, if you use your will and positive attitude to maintain your high state, you will cancel the negative state instead. This is the power of Love. When you consciously love, you create a field that can’t hold ill will, harm or hurt. Love is the greatest protection of all.
