How should we greet

a3

A greeting apart from brightening someone's day, can do many things, like helping two col-leagues to get to know each other, expressing one's care for another, or it can be the start of a fulfilling relationship. Greeting others is something common and yet important to all cultures. It is a norm that nearly everyone engages in on a daily basis. We greet people in different ways depending on our relationship with the person we are greeting and also depending on our culture. For example, for our business colleagues at work we usually greet with a handshake, a mother and child may greet with a hug or a husband and wife may greet with a kiss. We are taught these different greetings from childhood and most of us do not give any thought to the spiritual impact of how we greet. However, through spiritual research, we have found that different forms of greetings have different spiritual effects that can help or harm us in our daily lives and also in our spiritual journeys. This is because subtle energy is exchanged every time we greet others. In this section, we will cover in detail about how some greetings can be spiritual beneficial and some can be spiritually harmful.

How to greet | A spiritual perspective on greeting

Nearly everyone greets someone daily. Each of these greetings has a spiritual impact that depends on our intention when greeting, who we greet and also on the type of greeting.

Handshakes – spiritual perspective 

The handshake, which is a widely used greeting in the western world, can be done for a variety of reasons. For example, some may shake hands to develop rapport, some may do so to show authority, and some may do so as a mere formality. No matter what our intention is, shaking hands is very likely to have a negative spiritual impact that should be considered by all.

Japanese greeting – Bowing

One the face of it, the Japanese bow appears to be a very respectful greeting steeped in a rich cultural background. Yet even for this type of greeting, there are both positive and potentially negative spiritual effects.

Hugging people – Spiritual effect

Who doesn't like the comfort of a warm hug from a person that we love? We also don't think twice about a social hug as it is now the widely accepted form of greeting. What most people don't realize is that a seemingly harmless hug has mostly negative spiritual repercussions. This is especially so when children are being hugged as they are more spiritually vulnerable.

How to greet – kissing | A spiritual perspective

Along with a hug, a kiss on the cheek is more and more accepted as a social greeting. It is also one of the more intimate ways to greet others and it is common to many cultures.Many of us have been conditioned by movies, television and mainstream culture to see kissing in a positive light. Yet from a spiritual perspective, kissing actually has the most potential for exchange of black energy. For all the die hard romantics who hold a mouth to mouth kiss as the epitome of displaying romantic affection, the bitter truth is that it is also the form of greeting that can result in the most exchange of negative energy.
