The theme of today’s post was a question posted by Kelli on my official Facebook page. Funnily enough, I had experienced a great amount of ‘feeling pissed off’ energy myself this morning and noticed that my fuse was super-short.
Getting mad with people can be a knee jerk reaction. It’s a short-term release where you might feel better blowing off some steam in the spur of the moment, but in the long run you just look like a cranky pants monster biatch.
We know that everything is energy, so when you indulge in getting attached to the way you think a person is making you feel you totally hand over your power to them. They win. And yes, it is a competition until you see that it’s your choice to rise about the situation.
You create your own reality and you created the person and their behaviour that you’re choosing to react to. There’s a great lesson in there somewhere. This perspective works for difficult ex-husbands, bosses, high-maintenance mothers and pretty much anyone that you don’t see eye-to-eye with.
Sean and I were standing in our kitchen the other day and heard two male voices shouting loudly at one another. It was ‘road rage’ incident at the top of our driveway where they were hurling insults at one another in very aggressive tones. Sean and I went outside to watch the show just in case some punches were thrown. Okay, forget I said that last part. We were just curious to see how it would play out.
“There’s no need to be such a (insert C word here) about it!”
“You’re an arsehole!”
The screaming match continued for several minutes where it was clearly a case of two energies colliding that were magnifying their state of not being in alignment. It was like a vibrational game of ping-pong with two giant mirrors with an energetic echo.
This is the point I want to make..
When you’re not in alignment with your current situation (whatever it is) then you need to remember to get back into a state of peace, poise and perfect harmony somehow within your soul.
The key is being aware of how you feel. If you feel bad, make yourself feel good. Do whatever it takes. Pour yourself a big glass of wine, turn up some loud music and dance like a crazy person or read something that feeds your soul. Again, do whatever it takes to hold the intention to feel good.
Abraham-Hicks teaches people about the power of the emotional guidance scale. In fact, there are many spiritual teachers that insist that focussing on feeling good in the present moment is the best way to stay in alignment.
Losing your shit at someone isn’t worth your energy. Your cells begin to deteriorate, your bloodstream creates acid, you feel drained and your brain becomes crowded with thoughts that don’t serve you.
The next time someone pisses you off, use it as an opportunity to step out of yourself and choose to guide your reaction to a place of calm, non-reactive energy that leaves you feeling in control of a situation you helped to diffuse consciously.
