Weeding Your Garden

New Moon energy still at play … keep working on those seeds you want to plant. Be mindful of your thoughts, your energy.. also others who wish you bad intentions.. bringing bad energy into your life. They are like the weeds getting into your garden, keeping your seeds from growing … pay close attention and keep your garden clean and clear of those weeds.

Many Blessings,

Staying Positive

Spirit urges us to stay positive. When life brings you worry, stress and pain… it is more needed than ever to try and keep your thoughts positive. Thoughts are energy, so, negative thoughts and negative energy and positive thoughts are positive energy. We have enough negative energy in our lives so we need to do whatever we can to add more positive energy to it and bring it back into balance.

Lashing Out and Karma

Jackson Falls - Natchez Trace

Jackson Falls – Natchez Trace

I was having a conversation with a friend earlier about people from their past who have done them wrong, hurt them or were just plain ugly in their ways toward that person. My friend was quick to say, given the situation again, they would retaliate with angry but truthful words that they know would in kind, hurt that person back. They would fight dirty with dirty, throw stones as they were thrown at them. 

My reply was this: Just because someone else wants to get down on that level, doesn’t mean you have to as well. Take a step back from the situation and disconnect from it for a moment to see it for what it truly is. Ask yourself a few questions; is retaliation worth the karma for you to take on? Sending out negative energy into the world, is it worth the risk of it coming back to you? Do you allow yourself to entertain this negativity for a brief moment of feeling justified? That feel good moment does only last a very brief time. 

It’s easy to say these things when you aren’t in the middle of the dispute. I do know how hard it is to hold back when stones keep getting thrown in your direction. I have been on the receiving end many times in life and in many situations. I guess that is where my experience comes from and why today I would much rather choose to gather those stones and build a bridge than to throw them back. I’m certainly not saying I haven’t thrown some of those stones back, especially earlier in my years… but quite often, regret is on the back end of those stones that got thrown and once they hit their mark, they cannot be taken back, ever! 

So when a situation comes your way and someone is sending out negativity of any kind your way… step back, find your balance and don’t allow their negativity to flow over on to you. Or at least, do your best to not let the negativity control your emotions and actions.

No one can take your inner peace away from you unless you allow it. 

Many Blessings, 

The Struggle Between Positive and Negative

IMG_8041Being Kind, Helpful and Positive vs Allowing Others to Walk all Over You

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has ever struggled with this. I am someone who tries my best daily to be as positive and helpful as possible with those I interact with. I will do what I can for anyone who asks for assistance. BUT…. there are some people who step into your life and want to take advantage far too much and in return send out bad energy and negative vibes.

You know those that I speak of… certain people in the workplace who smile in front of you and snarl behind you. Those who come to you when they need help and god forbid if at some point they don’t get first priority.. they take the opportunity to be as nasty as they can. Snide remarks here and there… that look of pure misery when you are near their space and an overall feeling of discontent.

There is a part of me that says .. no matter how this person wants to act .. I will kill them with my kindness and I will rise above their negativity. Then there is this other side of me that says.. well.. I will give them what they give me in return. If they are unsatisfied with the energy they are receiving from me, then maybe they need to have a look at what they are sending my way.

There come s a point where my “killing them with kindness” starts feeling like I am simply allowing the other person to walk all over me. They get what they want from me and yet continue to send back that ugly, negative energy of theirs. So what do you do?

Personally … it takes me a long, long time to get to the point of “I’ll give back to them what they send my way”. I do whatever I can to change the situation into a more positive one. With some people, it is just wasted time and energy. It seems as though they live to be the way they are and I am unsure they care about how their attitude effects others at all.

I’m not quite sure of the correct answer here … if even there is one.

I will continue being me and spreading as much light and joy as I possibly can… but beware those who wish to send out negative energy my way… you just never know when it might get thrown right back at you.

Many Blessings,

Clearing Energy

candleHave you ever had one of those days where everything seems to get to you? It feels that everything that got added to your to-do list was a burden and with each task you felt more and more weighed down. You can feel the negativity building inside you. How do you get past this and how do you clear yourself of this bad energy?

I use a few techniques: 

Smudge  – Smudge is a mixture of herbs that are used just for their properties of clearing away bad or negative energy. You light them and let them smolder.. swirling the smoke around your space.. clearing away all that mad mojo.

Light a Candle – As I light the candle I imagine all the negativity inside and around me burning away and as the candle burns it continues to burn away all that bad, icky stuff.

Meditation – Take a few deep breaths… close your eyes… let go of everything … imagine all good energy taking over as you breathe in and all bad energy leaving you as you exhale.

Step Outside – Nature is a great way to get away from bad energy… just stepping out onto the ground  – taking in fresh air can be very helpful.

If none of the above work… SCREAM! LOL… seriously if you are able to do it .. sometimes a good shout out can release you from all that pent of negativity.

Many Blessings,

Shifting Your Thoughts

We all find ourselves in that negative zone from time to time. Some far more than others. Getting out of that negative space often seems like a task that is larger than life, larger than you feel like you can handle at that moment.

It’s as hard as you allow it to be. I know you hate that answer but it’s true. My words are easy to say and easy to type but I know how difficult it feels in real life. I have been in that negative space far more often than I would like to admit.

The question of the day is: How do you get out of that negative space and into a more positive one?

By shifting your thoughts from whatever it is that put you in that ugly space to begin with. Is it easy? Yes and No. It’s something that will take some serious work on your behalf. You will have to focus your thoughts and energy to something else…. something that doesn’t relate what so ever to those negative thoughts. The further from that negative monster that put you into that space.. the better!

Find something to do. Busy yourself with something that will make you feel good. Whether it is something for another or something productive for yourself or whatever… find something physical to focus your energy and thoughts on.

Take some reflection time to focus and remember all the best moments of your life. Fond memories always put a smile on my face and help me move forward.

When we find ourselves in that negative pit… we dwell on all things negative and bring a dark and dreary cloud over ourselves that does not have to be there. Focusing so much on those negative thoughts doesn’t make it go away, it doesn’t make you or anyone around you feel good, it doesn’t help or improve your life in any way at all. All it does is prolong the negative darkness that is there.

Shift your thoughts and you’ll be asking yourself why on Earth you spent any time at all in that negative space.

Many Blessings,


Daily Insight – Participating in the Negativity of Others

click to enlarge

Speaking to a dear friend this morning, I thought this might be a good place to help shine some positive light 🙂 .

Let’s say you are in a situation where you are around a lot of negativity. It can be really hard not to let that negativity venture over onto you. It’s like a virus spread with emotions, actions and all too often terrible words. You have to find the joy of each moment for you and distance yourself from what is theirs.

Remind yourself that the other person’s thoughts, emotions, actions, words and energy are theirs and not your own. Just as smiles, yawning and happiness is contagious.. so is negativity, especially when exposed to  it often. You just have to know what’s theirs is NOT yours. You don’t want it… you don’t need it and you are not what they are!

Be you… stay positive and excuse yourself from the negativity of others.

Something else that helps me… I keep a quartz crystal on my desk or in my office…. it takes on the energy of others and keeps it away from me..  it helps neutralize my space and      makes me feel all the better when negative crap is going on all around me. 

Many Blessings,

Positive Infection

That’s right “Infection” ….

Today I want to speak about spreading positivity …

Everyone seems to be able to spread the flu and other viruses so easily .. I thought .. ok lets see how far we can spread some positivity..

My challenge for everyone is for the next 30 days … as you go through your day and come across that one negative, nasty, bitter, angry person that everyone runs into .. do something or say something or maybe even just smile and if nothing else give them a silent blessing in a positive way in hopes to spead positivity.

Lets see how much we can change our own worlds by consciously setting out to spread positive thoughts and feelings to htose in need.

Don’t just spread them to the negative folks out there .. be sure and lend some extra to the already positive as well.. for there is never tooo much

Many Blessings,
