See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying—through their individual experiences—to find their way back to that calling, back to that Source Energy. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than you would choose, there’s no right or wrong way. In other words, bless them all, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is opening or closing your vortex to your natural state of Well-Being.

Hello Dear Ones!
An unusual day energy-wise. Have you ever had a day where someone you have to interact with is angry? You know the kind of anger that is so palpable the air is thick with it? I’ve been doing all I can to release, alter, fix, placate, remedy, mollify, modify, help, ignore … I come well armed with a history of rescuer behaviour – a lifetime pattern of it, in fact. Being a rescuer is labour intensive. It’s a lot of work. It’s emotionally and physically exhausting. For me it’s difficult, sometimes, to just let go and let that individual do whatever he or she needs to do to get through their own issue(s) while I get on with living my happy, Pollyanna life.
I’ve begun to recognize the pattern – that when I’m around angry people I get this knot of tension in my solar plexus and I translate it as fear. Not a comfortable feeling. I get antsy, restless, scared: little girl scared. So during those times of being in the same room or environment with an angry individual it is really important for me to find a way to acknowledge the source of the anger as originating outside of me. It is NOT my emotion and I do not need to hold any of it within the framework of my own body or etheric energy field.
There are things I can do… I start by loving the other individual as s/he is. Easier said than done, often times. Loving an angry person can be quite challenging. What I find myself doing, then, is envisioning them as the dynamic, powerful, spiritual, multidimensional being I know them to be. That’s all I can do for them. What happens to, through, and within them is up to them, and them alone. Me going into rescue mode does not help either of us. Finding ways to keep my own vibrational energy at the highest level I can is my personal responsibility. Taking care of me helps us both in the long run.
Selfish? You bet! Having one angry person is challenging enough. Having an angry person and a scared person within the same vicinity is just a waste for all concerned. So, for me, it’s important to feel the loving energy of Source flowing through me – revved as high as I can possibly allow it to flow – in order to stay focused and balanced and happy. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes I’m less than successful. Sometimes I just have to leave the room or the building! It is important for me to do whatever I need to do to get myself from that place of little girl scared to at least a place of relative calm. Once my vibrational rate is up even a wee bit, it’s still better than being in a place of fear. When I’m in that bit better feeling place and comfortable with it, then I can tell if I need to rev the vibration up even more.
How do I do it? I think of things that make me happy: wiggling my toes in the sand by the ocean; playing with my grandson while he sings and dances and giggles around me; feeling the tiny feet of a firefly (lightening bug) walk across my palm … These things bring a smile to my face and a feeling of joy and peace to my heart. Then I make sure to smile. When I smile I can’t help but feel better. The body and emotions don’t know the difference between a put on smile and a spontaneous one. So smiling always works for me. I force the smile and feel a bit better. Feeling better makes me smile more. Smiling more makes me feel even better – well, you get the idea!
Once I feel better, my higher vibrational energy emanates out to the room, the environment in which I find myself. My intent is not to overpower the negative energy of the other person. That is, again, a waste of my energy. It is also not my responsibility. I think the best analogy I can use to express this is that I am like a candle in a dark room. The light from the candle doesn’t seek out to dispel the darkness. It merely radiates its light. The darkness then shifts its location to places where the light cannot reach. The candle just sits there and glows. That is me in times like that. Passive and happy.
My personal well-being is important to me and to all I encounter in my day. I let others do what they would do with no judgment as to whether their actions are right or wrong. There is, after all, no right or wrong – it is just that their actions are different from mine. As Abraham states in the above quote: “bless them all, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is opening or closing your vortex to your natural state of Well-Being.”
Right now I’m writing, as it lifts up my energy. In my mind’s eye I’m watching my grandson wiggling his feet in the sand at my favourite ocean beach. My whole body is smiling. Feels wonderful! Feeling wonderful is my natural state of being and I like it there …
