We all have bad days; however some people have more than others. Although I pride myself as a happy person, there are moments I experience negativity for no apparent reason. For instance when my co-workers began to complain and produce negative attitudes. I find that the smallest thing begin to cause me to be snappy. There are also some areas in my life that are consistently negative in my opinion. For example, I have a teenage daughter, sixteen years old to be exact, she is a good kid but the constant eye, head and lip movement just irks the core of my being. Yeah, I know I sound dramatic because I am a good and bad Drama Queen. Although it is never acceptable for a child to direct a negative response towards a parent, I am concerned with the reasons behind her relentless irritation. Since all the negative energy seems to be directed towards me, I’d begin to wonder if I were the source.
A friend once told me that happiness is based on happenings and joy comes from the soul. Never forgetting this quote, I’ve always strived to feed my spiritual soul. Now I find my natural happenings out of balance. So I recently challenged my self identify the source of energy in my life.
First I realized I was not Creating my happenings. When my creator established the earth and me, he looked and saw it was good. Just having positive quotes, affirmations, and books placed around your desk and home is not enough. We must know and follow these quotes and affirmations before adversity shows up. If you set a ritual of creating happy happenings, a positive Godly standard will shield you from being infected with negative ions. Remember when the enemy comes in like a flood the spirit of God will build up a standard against him. Start Creating Your Standard!
One of my greatest lessons in my challenge was realizing my lack of COMPASSION . Being a teenager with ever changing hormones and rules and regulations can be a challenging life to lead. I remember at her age always being too old for this but too young for that. No matter what age I achieved it just meant, yeah you can go to the dance but you need to be home at 10 o’clock. Oh of course the dance didn’t end until 12 and EVERONE else could stay later. Now I am the parent saying, “Yes you can have a drivers license but you’re not ready for a car.” How fair does that seem. Although I now empathize with her, my rule is still the same but my delivery is different. I now understand if she isn’t allowed to use the car she won’t be able to prove what a safe, confident and responsible driver. Compassion allows me now to have an open mind and at least try to find some level ground. Of course in all things you want be able to please everyone but it is important to acknowledge and consider others views. She still does not have free access to my vehicle but her usage has increased. Yes, Yes, Yes I see the eyes. Yes, I feel the heavy breathing. Yes, I hear the complaining. Compassionately I know she is just multi-tasking.
Positive and negative energy is everywhere. Their like bacteria, we all have good and bad. However we must purpose not to let the bad energy override our positive power. By not feeding into negativity through a compassionate and understanding spirit you can and will create POSITIVE POWER. Wash your mind like you wash your hands. Be careful not to spread Negative Energy. Help cure the spread of this deadly disease.
