Why is it some of those around us have to give their negative opinion on everything we do in our lives? Whether it relates to work, home, family or friends they have to have their say.
Why do they struggle to just let us do and think as we do without forcing their ideals on us.
What makes them think they have such control over us? Do they think they are genuinely helping us or are they just interfering in our lives because they can.
And, the worst part is if we don’t agree, or follow what they think is best for us, they are often offended.
Who gives them the right to do this to us? Sadly we do.
Why can we not stand up and just say ‘thanks but no thanks’?
Do you think we are too soft and don’t want to offend anyone?
Now don’t get me wrong often we ask for someones opinion or advice and that is fine, we asked for it and we should be grateful and open minded enough to listen and consider what is given. I am talking today about the ones who try to dominate our lives from their perspective.
So what do we do if we find ourselves in this position. It’s not easy just to walk away from these people as they are often an integral part of our lives.
If you have any suggestions that we can share between us all then please comment so everyone can read. You never know we may just be able to help someone who is struggling with this issue.
Once we find the solution that is best for us to remove this negativity from our lives, we can experience the most profound healing experience.
What is hard work and what makes it hard is my current question? The answer I received during meditating was ‘hard work is something you don’t want to do’. So does that make sense to me. Well yes I think it does in a strange way.
Hard work to me means long hours, no pleasure, no gain or reward at completion, just something we have to do to get a head in life. When we enjoy doing something and can see the rewards we or others will receive from our hard work and long hours somehow it doesn’t seem like hard work.
Life is meant to be a pleasure not a chore so if you find any part of your life hard work what can you do to make the changes. Some say not a lot and just stick with what they know, whilst others when they realise what is happening and face up to the changes they have to make can put the hard work in to get what they really desire to make something that is hard work fun again.
Life gives us many opportunities and I strongly believe we have free will to guide us, but why choose to go where we do not receive any joy. If your life is hard work, just stop for a moment and think what you would do to take the hard out of hard work.
Where do I start with how this week is progressing along. All I can say is I have never been aware of how many choices I have and decisions to make. Does anyone else notice this?
It is only Tuesday and the little things in my life seem to be taking up so much head space, which leaves little room for the bigger things that need thinking about. Today I seem to have been in demand by others who have wanted my advice, yes, I feel honoured that people know they can come to me, but I have had to make so many choices. Do I tell them exactly what I think? How do I word it? What tone of voice do I use? Am I blunt or am I subtle? Do I listen or do I speak? One person I do know I most upset but sometimes the word no is enough to upset some. Sadly in this instance I cannot offer anymore and it’s time for her to move on to another mentor. My advice and best intentions wasn’t good enough for her sadly.
And, then what about the easy things. Do I wear my hair up or down? Is it a shower or a bathe? Which colour jeans? Which top ? Which crystal to wear for myself? Which crystals are recommended for others too wear. And it goes on and on. So much so that I finally said enough is enough. No more choices.
Where do you think our choices come from? Is it ourselves that bring this forward or someone or something the presents these situations and opportunities?
Some of the choices I have had to made this week have meant that the answer has been found in my gut instinct or sixth sense. Others have been my common sense or head/heart combination. At this moment in time I am not sure which sense is the stronger one.
So I will leave you to contemplate on the type of choices you have made and still have to make. Remember if it feels right to you then you are making the right choice for you. 💪Be strong
This month, Turquoise has been chosen as the crystal of the month. Turquoise is known as the anti-negativity crystal with the Native American Indians believing it bestows a deep feeling of thankfulness on those that carry it.
Why do we become thankless? What causes our thought patterns to work that way? Why do we not show gratitude for all that we have in life?
These questions have been highlighted as the theme chosen for the month is Gratitude. Turquoise is known to improve all communication activities especially verbal and the written word. When we make changes to our internal and external voice from the negative to the positive, over time we can only then begin to notice the simple things in life that have been overlooked for so long. Counting your blessings, and acknowledging everything that you have worked hard to achieve and have been fortunate to receive over the years shows that miracles really do happen on a daily basis.
Turquoise helps to introduce wisdom and understanding back into our lives. It opens our eyes to the beauty that truly is all around us. When we are absorbed in the negative we really are blind to the wonders that occur on a regular basis. It also assists in promoting self-realisation as it slowly dissolves self-sabotaging thoughts and actions.
The daily practice of showing gratitude opens us up to a pure happiness and makes us more aware of exactly what we have achieved in our lifetime. This then works to reduce our stress levels as we no longer totally look towards what we want but rather to what we have already.
We often take our life for granted especially the most important things such as our friends and family, our home and possessions, our career. Can you imagine how you react if something suddenly happened and you lost all of the things that mean the most to you. How would you cope? How grateful would you be if it were possible to have these things returned to you. Why wait for them to be taken from you before you realise, show gratitude now.
This crystal is very popular for a number of reasons and is widely available. All crystal collections should include a piece of Turquoise as it reduces inflammation and pain as it detoxifies the whole body. It works to improve the immune system as well as balancing the chakras.
