Love Allowed

DSC01958

I don’t know why some people feel so free to “dump” all their negative energy onto others.

I think it is important to take heed with others, because it’s so true that you never know what the next person is going through.

But I don’t know.

Perhaps some don’t realize what an impact energy has.

Perhaps some don’t perceive their energy as negative at all! (Which would be unfortunate).

Or perhaps some simply don’t care-“misery loves company…”

Well, when this happens I think it pays to be mindful as opposed to lowering ourselves to the same level.

Booker T. Washington said this amazing line. I quote, “I shall not let any man narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.”

I love that. I love how he put that….

Narrow and degrade my soul.

When I think of this quote, I am able to imagine how ugly I can become by reacting in a similar way to a person who has offended me.

Another one I really like is, “Be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.”

I do not say that I am perfect by any means. In fact, I wouldn’t be writing this if there wasn’t a particular energy I felt was pulling me down.

But I hope to shake off that energy before the rest of my day.

Things are not all bad. We just have to force ourselves to remember. 🙂

Hope everyone has a love- and peace-filled day!

Namaste. Xx

  1. Oh yes, the energy vampires. I think some of us are just more sensitive to people’s energy than others. I know that I am super sensitive and my mood can switch in an instant depending on the vibes of those around me. I’ve learned I need to take care of myself when this happens, spend time alone, read inspiring words, meditate. Make sure you’re taking care of yourself to recharge. 🙂

    • Hey Meagan,

      So true-and I am definitely the more sensitive type.

      Thanks for the reminder! I know I need it sometimes. 🙂

  2. I understand also what you are referring too. When I sense the negative vibes, I immediately start praying for Holy Spirit to guide me and allow me to be aglow with God’s spirit. It can be very difficult especially when you don’t feel that well. Here are some key points I try to remember and apply:

    Bible Principles That Promote Peace
    Think before you speak or act.—James 1:19.
    When provoked, do not retaliate.—Proverbs 26:20.
    If anger wells up, “take your leave.”—Proverbs 17:14.
    Be willing to apologize.—Matthew 5:23, 24.
    Forgive freely.—Ephesians 4:32.

    I will forever be a work in progress!!!!

    • Soulbroadcasting,

      Aren’t we all a constant work in progress?!! But how nice it is to see ourselves grow in the process. 🙂

      Thank you for sharing the wisdom. I agree-these are all good things to remember. Xx
