I wish there was something I could say that would ease your mind. I wish there was a way to show you how these energies of negativity will grow, and expand, exactly what you do not want. The intense focus on what is not wanted, will only ensure more of the same comes, only now, with such intense focus, it will be bigger … more than before. I wish you knew that you are a powerful creator, and this is what is being chosen.
When a loved one becomes ill, there is intense focus on it. There is a deep want for them to be cured and a severe dump of life force energy goes into the fact that they are ill. Sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, everyone is involved in this energy dump around illness. Doing so causes the one who is ill to focus on that illness intently.
There is one small problem with this, and it isn’t so small.
Where thoughts go, energy flows.
With all that focus on illness, it actually can cause a dramatic growth and exacerbation of the illness. There are many studies from all around the world which prove this to be the case.
Of course we want to help our loved ones. We want to do everything in our power to increase their chances of becoming well, or healing to the greatest extent. We want it so badly that we make ourselves sick with worry. Hence, where thoughts go energy flows, not only for our loved ones, but in us as well.
The most powerful thing that can be done is to step back from the fear about illness and shower the situation with love, acceptance and joy. Fear, and a form of panic does not do the situation any good at all, it increases discord and fear ~ it promotes uncertainty and loss of hope. Essentially, it can cause one to just give in and give up.
Love must be allowed to over-ride the fear of loss, it must over-ride the fear of the future outcome. Loving … day to day, day after day, is what brings peace.
It is important to take a deep look into the situation and consider what type of energy is being contributed. Where is the power of the human creator going to? Where is the focus of will going? What is being empowered?
Snap, pop … ever hear and feel that when you move? It is a blessing to experience this … it is a statement of living, and proof that life IS still.
It can be easy to spin on the discomfort or pain, and then it becomes even easier to fall into victim-hood … the woe is me point of view. This can morph into bitterness, “Why isn’t this happening to so and so? I’m not as careless” … or whatever one may find themselves saying.
Practicing a grateful response to all of lifes experiences eases the possibility of negatives growing and becoming fertile. It really is true that what ever is watered in our gardens of thought will flourish.
Many of us have experienced moments in life where we find ourselves saying, “I should be dead. How did I survive that?” and yet, we did. And we are still here … there is opportunity to prove that life can be more, get better and shinier … all it requires is effort.
True wealth is not about money or things … it is about the inner garden. What is growing there? How many can this inner stuff feed? What do we have to offer? Here is were sharing comes in.
Many of us start out looking to others, or to things, or to title and wage or some other privilege bestowed upon us by someone else. If we are fortunate, we live … and we begin to notice that none of that matters. We understand that no one has more authority over our life than our self. In this scenario, we make choices, moment by moment, we learn, we grow.
Some people want others to believe they cannot function without being told what to do and when to do it. They pay a wage, and then they expect they are owed something in return. In a good system, it is a conscious agreement that is entered of give and receive ~ or give and give, an agreement that can be altered or canceled at any time by either party.
It is all good in freedom ~ when we honor each other.
Without honor, integrity, morals and care, none of it matters. None of it. For love will never grow there, and without love ~ everything is worthless, there is no point of anything, and slavery remains.
This is quite interesting. As so many people focus on manifesting what they deem to be for their highest and greatest good, I refuse to. For I know that what is for my, and all those my life touches, highest and greatest good, already is.
Saying good-bye is never easy. Even when we leave behind situations that are painful, it still requires an adjustment, for pain, too, is something which can be missed once gone.
Every relationship, every situation, is for a reason. It may be that some knowledge of current, must be brought forth into future endeavors. Usually, if paid heed and utilized correctly, this new knowledge can be beneficial to all involved.
Grow. Never stop adding to the learning adventure. Stretch your comfort zone, move beyond what you may see as your capacity. There is always room for something greater. You have so much to offer, and while others offer their own experiences for lessons, you can do the same for them.
Your life is valuable, your knowledge is perfect and when used for good can shift the world view and path toward the outcome of peace and compassion. The seeming negatives, which undoubtedly have been yours, are teaching tools. For others, and also for self. Moving beyond the pain they may have caused, increases care for self, and for all in the world.
Nothing to do … twiddle thumbs, look around … and eat. Get up from chair, pace the room, repeat.
A new adventure is about to begin. When these moments in life, these opportunities occur, it may feel as though the clock stops, butterflies do their thing in the belly and slight agitation erupts in the mind.
Calming the nerves takes effort and practice. Running at 1000 miles per hour, or 2 ~ it has the same affect. Being so busy one cannot think, and being so stagnant that is all one has to do, has the same unsettling outcome … both require an effort of stilling the mind.
With eyes shut feel a long breath enter the lungs, with a long slow exhale, feel it leave. Pay attention to the way air moves into, and out of, the body. Do not stop after 3, let the uncomfortable sensation sit, keep breathing ~ slowly. After a time, a small relaxation will arrive … keep breathing. Breathe through the need to get up and be busy … just sit and breathe.
