In a recent message from Mary she had a question. What do you do with negative energy? It’s all around us isn’t it? It’s in the news, it’s in the media… we have friends, family and co-workers who love to vent, and love to complain. But what do you do with that energy? Do you entertain the energy? Do you feed it? Do you add to it? Do you allow it to grow? It’s easy to do isn’t it?
Mary wanted to remind us that we have choices when dealing with negativity. We can do a few things. We can defuse the negativity by trying to turn the conversation into a positive one…or at least neutralize the negativity; we can have that honest conversation and remind the individual that they are spreading a negative message and share with them the impact it has on others…most people don’t realize how negative they really are; or we can simply walk away from the conversation and distance ourselves from the negativity ensuring that the negative energy at least doesn’t spread to us.
These are just a few recommendations you can try…we know there are more…feel free to share
We had a nice visit from Mary and she passed along a series of messages centered around energy and breaking the cycle of negativity. The last recommendation she passed along made me smile the most, so I thought I would start at the end.
One of the best ways to break the cycle of negative thinking is to connect with a pet! Kitty started to meow and hopped up beside me just as we were finishing up, and I could instantly feel warmth and love in my heart. There was no judgement, there were no negative thoughts…there was just love, joy, companionship…and a warm purring bundle of fur. “C” used her purring ball of fur to heal after she became separated. Her Kitty provided her with comfort and caring … Kitty intuitively knew that she needed to take care of “C” and knew exactly when to snuggle up to reduce her pain.
So Mary wanted to remind us right off the bat to connect with a pet when we are down, when we hurt, or when our energy is being drained…because they can instantly lift our vibrations and take us to a more positive place!
Wouldn’t it be great if we had all of the answers? Never making a mistake, never being wrong, never having any regrets. Maybe it’s not as impossible as it sounds. In a recent message from Mary she showed me a path…it represented our journey through life…and as with many paths there are options…we are constantly making choices…most feel right in the beginning, but the longer we travel sometimes we question our decisions…we start asking “What if?”. This question can keep us locked in the past.
In the message Mary wanted us to understand that in life we may not always make the best choices…or better yet we may not get the results we were expecting…or hoping for…but we need to be realistic about the results…we need to stay positive…we need to realize that sometimes when we go down a path we question, it doesn’t mean we still will not reach our original destination. We can always make changes, we can alter our course…or maybe we are simply taking the scenic route!
The important thing to try to do is learn from our experiences…try to find those teachable moments…share the journey with those we love, for as long as we can…embrace life…embrace love…and share our love with others…it’s really the only true thing that we have.
So how is your week going? Your month…or even your year? We hope things are positive and peaceful.
Life has a way of taking us on a bit of a rollercoaster ride…or in this case a trip somewhere down the crazy river (there’s a Robbie Robertson reference in there somewhere). We have our ups… we have our downs…and for many of us the downs seem more prevalent than the ups.
It can be tough to stay positive. It is easy to slip into a bit of a depressed state, which does not help our vibrations…it prevents us from healing…it prevents us from growing…and can prevent us from growing our love, or caring for the people we love.
In a recent message from Mary she showed me a waterfall…and if you think of a waterfall it can start off as a slow moving river…maybe even relaxing to stat with….but then it begins to speed up. At first you can back paddle a bit…you can hold your own…but then you start to lose ground. The strength of the water starts to take over…you begin to panic…you don’t have the strength to fight the power of the river anymore. You end up getting swept up by the currents…you have lost control…the calmness of the water is long gone and you are now engulfed in the rapids. There is tension, stress and turmoil…and you end up going over the waterfall.
Does this feel familiar?
I’m sure we have all gone through a similar sensation several times in our lives. But the other part of the image that Mary shared with me was that quite often at the end of the waterfall there is a rainbow in the mist…that there is a positive…that there is beauty…there is joy…and although you have just been through a traumatic experience…an experience where you have lost control, felt helpless, and you have been put through the ringer…well… there is the next phase in your journey…and it can be a beautiful thing.
You can rise from your depression…you can raise your vibrations…you can continue to heal….and you can continue to love and grow.
Examine your journey…learn from it…look inward towards your heart and know that things will get better…that life will go on and you will make it through the waterfall.
One recent message that Mary sent had to do with the way we treat each other. We have a tendency to blame. Look at the latest US election (who am I kidding…look at all elections globally), weren’t most of the ads accusing and blaming each other? Isn’t the biggest issue ahead of the US economy very divisive at this point? Both sides are claiming they want to work together to resolve the issue, but we still see little action. It seems to me to it all has to do with blame. No one seems to be taking responsibility as long as they have the option to point fingers.
Do we also do this in our own lives? If something doesn’t go right, or more to the point, if something doesn’t go your way what do you do? Do you take ownerships? Do you take responsibility? Do you evaluate the situation objectively? Or is the easiest thing to do to blame someone?
It’s not easy is it? It’s something we all learned to do when we were children? Our parents taught us to assign blame. It became a way of life. We have turned into a “Blame Culture”. I guess that’s why there are so many lawyers…anyway it’s not easy to break away from. It’s ingrained in us and very often our first response…but it is a negative emotion…it is a negative response….it does lower our vibrations…it can hurt the ones we love…it can divide us…it is not solution oriented…it does not help the situation.
In most cases what’s done is done, there is no changing what has happened…there is only moving forward, and it is important to use positive energy doing so. It’s what raises vibrations and keeps love moving forward…it keeps love growing!
