Energy isn’t elusive— it is everywhere. “Good energy” is also everywhere.
You absolutely need vibrant and flowing energy around you in order to thrive. The overtly mean miserable people who seem to be succeeding are not. This is becoming strikingly obvious these days. Truth seems to be revealed rather quickly these days…
Sometimes its hard to feel it. And its not really clear quite why…
The thing is, when you’ve had big run-ins with negativity you can have actual ideas, things and even obligations that start taking your energy… Someone or something awakens fear. Fear grows like a weed, choking off possibility.
It’s subtle sometimes… until you suddenly feel overwhelmed and all the good energy feels so far away.
There are so many ways that life can introduce worst-case-scenarios, fear and dread into beautiful lives. It is the worst truth. It’s not easy to unload all of the time. But you can. And the rewards are enormous when you do!
We are magnetic. As magnets, the more you shine the more you are opened up to the weirdo folk and vampires. I’ve seen it time and again. I used to fear it.
You have two choices: 1. stay small and minimize our talents and your reach in life so that you can minimize the possibility that you’ll come up against a little chaos or 2. learn to ignore and unload negativity.
You can manage your space in your life to keep the negativity far away. Its a learning curve worth learning, keeping the negative far from the inner circle of your life.
First things first: no one’s opinion matters. The truth matters. If you have a medical conumdrum you may find yourself getting opinions from all kinds of doctors who freely use big scary noxious words with total irresponsibility a lot of the time. Their opinions don’t matter: only the actual truth of tested results matter. If you latch onto their opinions you can make yourself sick. This has been proven. Stick to the truth. This goes for all things. Truth is all that matters.
Don’t take criticism personally. If someone wants to bash you (happens to me from time to time) I say let them. Sometimes there’s something invaluable in criticism. Often its just noise. Its very hard not to take it personally but the best thing I can think of to do is to thank people for their feedback. Literally. Thank them. Mean it. The more you resist something the more it will stick to you. Don’t fire back needlessly. It feeds the issue.
Create something much bigger than any negativity that comes your way. I had a scary negative experience and the next day I went and made so much art happen that I had no time to dwell on the negative. Keep creating art and you will create far beyond fear and negativity. While I took this to an extreme in the past and waited for a negative something to come my way to motivate me, now I lean heavily on extra-creative days to wash out and crowd out anything negative that might come up… its not my motivation but its an awesome tool to cure most anything!
Look at the much bigger picture. You can truly do anything. I know that enormous quantum speak is often really hard to actually act upon, but in this sense it isn’t. When I really need to shake off the negative I look at the big picture quite seriously. Check it out: you have infinite possibility. You have a big plan. You have a tremendous amount to give to and share with people who love you. Why would you let one person’s opinion or one negative event block all the greatness that is there, waiting for you?
And of course, whenever I am truly astonished by meanness, selfishness, fear-mongering or anything else that really shuts down my excitement, I now ask myself: ” Should I let this person or thing take away all the great things in my life?”
By dwelling on the negative, you let the negative win.
Is that what you want?
Of course not!
I know you can create more space for the things you love. It’s addictively fun. It’s sometimes a radical departure from how you’ve lived. Dare to do it. Ditch more negativity and fear. Watch what incredible stuff happens…!
