I just had an interesting exchange on social media with someone I've known for a long time but don't know well. This person was sharing that they are really pissed off about something that happened a long time ago. I don't believe it happened to them personally, but they somehow decided to take it personally.
I get it. We all get pissed off by things we hear about or read about... and it's okay to be angry as long as you do something with that anger. Anger is a great catalyst for action... and sadly, it's also a great catalyst for, well, more anger.
It's like the old saying " Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. - Buddha"
My point is why hold onto it year after year after year? Why let a coal sit and burn in your soul like that? Who are you hurting? You are hurting you! If you're pissed off, do something about it - use it to guide you to constructive action, don't let it simmer forever... nobody needs that. Not you, not the people around you.
Also, if you're pissed at someone for something they supposedly did in the past, I advise you (and I'm talking to myself as well) to look at what you're pissed at them for exactly and find a time when you probably did the same exact thing!
For instance, if I'm pissed off about something someone said that I disagree with, I sure as hell can find where I've done that about a million times. I've judged people and said things that didn't need to be said and thankfully, I now have tools that help me let that shit go! And I can tell you, it's amazing when you do that!
It comes down to this: When we know better, we do better. Belief systems and people can change and sometimes it only takes an instant! I know that and so do you... remember that thing you were so sure of which turned out NOT at all like you thought? Yep, you saw it differently and realized you were wrong and hopefully you changed!
One thing I know for use is that everyone is capable of change. And, in fact that is the only constant - I am not the same person I was exactly 5 years ago and I bet you're not either. But to judge someone on something that happened in the past especially if they themselves have offered that maybe they could have done better only hurts you.... you are losing the chance to know them and to learn from what they've learned.
It's okay to be angry... but do you really need to carry that hot piece of coal around?
If you think this all sounds nuts, that's okay... or if you realize you might have some anger lying around that is burning you, let me know... I have several techniques to help you let that shit go! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let's work together to clear that coal and heal those burns.
INTUITIVE INSIGHT: JUNE 3-9
Note: The Colors of the Week Report and Downloadable Kit will be delivered monthly now on the first Sunday of the month and will contain the complete Report and Kit for the entire month.
June is off to a powerful start! I mean look at the colors for this first week… they are vibrant, powerful, and eye-catching… just like you!
It’s a week to focus on your personal freedom… WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? This is the question you must ask yourself and be prepared to hear the answer and take a step towards fulfilling it? You know what this is and you probably even know what step or steps you need to take to start making it happen. Now is the time to do that! The energy supports you in taking those steps!
As we move into the middle of the week, the focus in all on family. What does that mean? Well, actually family can mean a lot of things…. Your family of origin… where you came from, or the family you have created for yourself now… which also can mean a lot of things… family doesn’t always mean the ones we are directly related to!
So, in general it’s a good time right now to evaluate your relationships! Take a look and be real about what’s working, what’s not, what can be improved and maybe even what can be let go of. This is powerful and you can do it!
As the week draws to an end, we shift to animals (who can also be part of the family).When we become aware of the animals around us, either the pets we have or the animals who show themselves to us in nature, we can learn a lot! Pay attention to your pets and right now and listen closely to what they may be trying to share with you and also any animals who keep showing up.. they come with a message!
INTUITIVE INSIGHT JUNE 10-16
This is a powerful week… with a lot of potential for positive change if you are willing to step forward and make the first moves.
The beginning of the week is about justice. Justice is a powerful word and can mean a lot of things to people… one of the things it doesn’t mean is revenge. That is not the same as justice.
Justice is when things are balancing out in a fair and just way and there’s a good chance that you might see something you’ve been wondering about experiencing the effects of justice without you having to do a thing. It will resolve beautifully on it’s own! (If something really cool or crazy happens now… be sure to let me know at email@example.com!)
Midweek finds you focusing on travel… are you getting ready to make a move? Take a trip? Planning a trip? Thinking about traveling? Or even daydreaming about trips you’ve already made?
Now is the time to indulge all your travel fantasies and maybe even finally start planning the big trip you’ve dreamed about.
It can also be a time of travel on the interior… you may be discovering things about yourself and your life that are surprising, exciting, and eye-opening… pay attention to what may be revealed to you right now!
As the week draws to a close, know that you are protected in all ways. If that doesn’t feel true to you, please take a moment and call on Archangel Michael… he is the angel of protection and is always there for you if you need him (and if you don’t). I
f you feel the need for protection right now from anything… ask him to come and help you… you may just be surprised what happens when you do! (I’ve been working with Archangel Michael for years and he has never let me down and I’ve learned things might not always happen how you think they should, but in the long wrong, they are happening in the best way for you if you can trust His guidance!)
