Today Angela and Patti will explore how to interact with Social Media and keep yourself focused on the impact that social media and addictive viral media has on how you treat others with care or carelessness. When Angela trained in Mass Communication we researched the history of documentary and fiction film, radio, creative video and theater. She used the term Mass Communication and the modern forms of Social Media and Viral Media grew out of these forms of mass communication as a way for every human to participate actively in all forms of mass communication. Social Media was a way for the people to create their own stories and respond to the mass media being projected on them or about them.
Is this similar to shadow work?
Shadow work comes from the term “the shadow self,” which was coined by famed 20th-century psychologist Carl Jung. In Jungian psychology, this term describes the unconscious parts of the personality that our conscious ego doesn’t want to identify in itself. Shadow work is a process of inner work in which you bring those unwanted parts to the surface to purify, heal, and integrate into yourself. Your shadow isn’t something to be ashamed of or something to hate. It simply points to where you have work to do and where you got to give yourself more love.
In spiritual work we call this type of collective back and forth of thoughts, words, feelings, emotions and communication in humanity – Mass Consciousness. Angela always been struck by how Mass Communication and Mass Consciousness are two very different worlds of the media and spirituality that have a lot to offer each other about how to control or worsen the negative aspects of human thoughts and emotions. Mass Consciousness is the collective thoughts and emotions created, experienced and projected by humans through all time. This includes all the literature, all media, all the thoughts your ancestors had, all the thoughts you have when you’re not even aware you’re having thoughts. Some people also refer to Mass Consciousness as the thought sphere. However, Mass Consciousness is not just thoughts. It is the emotions and thoughts that have been experienced by humanity through all time. And these are not just in written form. Many cultures did not use writing, they used spoken words, they used art, architecture and all cultures had love and relationships, families, communities, tribes and these had thoughts and feelings. So Mass Consciousness is the collective of all these thoughts and feelings.
There is always a reason any social media triggers you.
Often if you watch that media, if you literally just watched how the media makes you FEEL, you would get the TRUE impact of that viral media.
Try this experiment: Before you even get on social media – take a note of how you feel and write it down. Then go on social media for 5 minutes. Get off – and notice how you feel and write down how you feel. And be honest. If you do this experiment over time. You will see the difference.
What are some Strategies to help listeners start to pay attention to how social media makes them uncaring, numb or disingenuous to their relationships?
Create or purchase a gratitude journal. Every day in the journal, write one to three things you are grateful for in your daily life. When you practice being thankful for the things and people in your life this helps you appreciate others more which in turn you become more caring.
Be aware of your emotions and feelings when on social media. Remove yourself from social media if you feel triggered and emotions of overwhelm, comparison or anger happen. Don’t reply to a post when your emotions are high, if you do need to respond. Respond back in a couple of hours when you have time to cool off, rewrite your response several times before hitting the reply button for the whole world to see. Ask someone else you trust for honest feedback before replying. Reflect after writing the response – Is it kind, is it necessary, how would you feel if someone responded to you with this response?
Work on halting the complaining and overthinking about a situation or comparison envy during and after reviewing social media. One thing Patti does is skip on by posts that she knows will trigger her.
The definition of resilience is the ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. Patti calls these life lessons.
Let’s say we are overthinking about a situation that can really take a toll on a person. It may cause depression, anger, suicidal thoughts, sadness, ulcers, overwhelm, uncontrollable crying, anxiety attacks, and so much more.
Being resilient is the process of healing and requires constant mental work of positive self-talk, the ability to let it go and move on.
In today’s podcast episode, we will be discussing how to fool-proof relationships so they can endure during lock-down.
With any relationship, you will have things that are going to irritate you about the other person. No one is perfect, and no relationship is either. You will have highs and lows during the partnership. For some, it is easier to walk away than to work it out. Anything worth having you have to work at it.
Now, let’s get real, there were many times Patti felt like running away, and that was pretty much my inner and outer struggles, not him. It’s okay to feel this way at times, and it’s alright to take a break to figure things out when needed. It takes two to have a healthy, thriving relationship. In relationships, you have two imperfect people with very different views on what a happy relationship should look like while trying to relate to each other, besides having a different upbringing, love languages, personalities, and values. Gary Chapman wrote a book on the 5 Love Languages.
It’s important to do things together as well. Have a date night at home – dress up, make a special dinner, etc. Sit outside with a glass of wine or beer, coffee or hot chocolate, whatever is your favorite beverage and watch the sunset, go for a walk, watch a TV show or movie together or go for a bike ride, take a drive in the car together to get outside and away from home. For more tips on surviving social isolation, we did a podcast on Episode 15 on this topic.
