I teach a lot of people a lot of things:
- how to heal issues from the past
- how to forgive
- how to deal with being an empath
- how to reclaim your passion and purpose
- how to experience greater levels of inner peace and joy
- how to rise in consciousness and awareness
- how to access higher wisdom
- how to clear disharmonious negative energies from yourself, as well as your home, work, and other environments
The list could go on of course.
But that last one I mentioned about dealing with something negative in yourself or your environment . . . how do you know it is actually your “stuff” that you are dealing with?
Often, in fact, it is not!
I’m sure you are probably wondering what I am talking about.
Sometimes you unexpectedly experience negative emotions like anger, sadness, or fear. Other times, you might wake up with this uneasy feeling that you can’t quite put your finger on.
Dowsers, empaths, and highly intuitive people often start looking for the cause of those feelings. They will ask questions like, “Is something ‘bad’ about to happen?” Or, “Am I upset about what Nancy said to me yesterday?”
It’s one thing to encounter a person or situation and have an immediate reaction. You know exactly what was done or said that upset you. And you can decide to forgive or have a conversation with the person to clear the air.
But when you have an unexpected negative emotion or feeling, it becomes very taxing sometimes to figure out why and then to rid yourself of it.
Often, the problem is that it simply isn’t your “stuff.” You’re simply being an empath picked up on the feelings, often outwardly unexpressed, that someone else is “running.”
Sometimes it is as if you have run into a negative vortex (like a little energy tornado) and now you are stuck there. These “icky” feelings might last a few hours, a few days, a few weeks . . . may we have a drum roll please . . . EVEN A FEW YEARS!
No, I’m not making this up and I’m not kidding.
It’s bad enough that you have energetic ties (cords) to people that can negatively affect you that will remain in place until they are removed properly.
But now you have to be concerned about picking up other people’s negative energy and emotions.
I’ll never forget the time I was terrified …
of being audited by the IRS.
O.K., first of all, I had nothing logical to fear. I always file my taxes accurately and on time. So, there was no obvious ‘reason’ the fear was so pronounced.
But day after day for several weeks, I would wake up with this gripping fear that I’d done something wrong on my taxes. I tried all kinds of things to rid myself of the feeling.
I don’t ever seem to be terrified about things. Having meditated for so many years, I live in a calm centered place almost all the time. Obsessive worry is a completely foreign concept to my reality. So these feelings and thoughts were almost unbearable.
When I repeatedly dowsed about being audited, I always got “no.” But I just couldn’t seem to rid myself of the thoughts and feelings.
Then one day a woman from the homeschool co-op that I was part of shared that she and her husband had been going through this horrific audit by the IRS. They had been dealing with it for weeks on end. And she had been basically a basket case all that time.
You have got to be kidding me!
I had been going through absolute agony and it wasn’t even my stuff.
And even worse than that, I already knew better. I had already been down this road several times and had some truly fast and effective methods for handling it.
I couldn’t believe I hadn’t remembered to ask the all important question. (Read on to find out what that is . . .)
Being in a feminine body means that I am naturally receptive. On top of that, my astrological sign is Pisces. Since Pisces is a water sign, it means that I am, therefore, naturally more sensitive to energy and emotion than many other people. Having raised my consciousness and awareness significantly over the past couple of decades, my sensitivity has been amplified even more. All of that is great for working with healing energies and picking up on the subtle. But it is not so great for dealing with intense negative emotions.
So . . .
Being an empath, until I figured out what was happening, I had become an emotional garbage collector. Other people had a lot of emotional junk. And I kept picking it up and carrying it for them.
I couldn’t believe I hadn’t recognized that sooner about the IRS issue.
Maybe you find yourself obsessing about:
- needing more money
- declining health
- making a mistake
- upsetting someone
- or something else
What if you have been worried about those things for a long time and it isn’t even your stuff?
And, if you are worried about those things, your natural flow of “good stuff” in those areas can’t happen?
You can’t have good health if you are obsessing about poor health.
You can’t have money flooding in your direction if you worried about not having enough.
So you see, it is critical that you not run fear about such things if you want to be healthy, happy, successful, charismatic, lovable, full of joy . . . you get the idea.
So what should you do when a negative emotion pops up?
The first question you should ask is: “Is this mine?”
If the answer is “Yes,” then you need to do some healing.
If the answer is “No,” then you need to clear out the energy. In my online course on pendulum dowsing, I give you a great method for handling it immediately and effectively.
In the meantime, visit the link and start doing the Daily Harmony meditation every day. It is not quite as thorough as some of my more advanced techniques, but it will still cause significant improvements if you’ve picked up someone else’s stuff. And, best of all, it’s FREE. Many people do it every day … even with their kids.
