Next suggestion: Disengage from the drama!

One of the reasons you maybe getting negative feedback, or get whispered about behind your back, or are thought of as the odd ball – misfit in the group, is because you are! BUT in a good way. Your higher vibrational frequency can be discordant to those of different vibratory cycles – and that is a good thing – the way of a way-shower. The good news is, this does not mean that you have to quit your job tomorrow, or stay miserable. Own it, stand in that truth. Feel the confidence of that empowerment, then allow yourself to remain confident in that truth without needing to disclose this to the people you work with. Keep this truth to yourself. This is not appropriate work time conversation.

Firstly, and on your own free time, figure out why you are at the job you are at and how long you need to stay there.

Next, decide what your intention is. Is it to get through a year until retirement or is it to hang in there until you find another job? These decisions will help you by providing a timeline to work within.

Next, figure out where the discordant vibrational offering is coming from. In other words, who is “vibing” you out? Is it the boss or is it a click of folks that tend to be the gossipers? Figure out order of magnitude: Boss, manager, co-worker, subordinate etc. then proceed with your first priority. The person who has the biggest ax to grind with the larger paycheck, they will be first priority.

First thing’s first, decide that you would like to grow and expand from this experience. Come into the present moment with a fresh perspective by forgiving all involved for any past drama. Put the past to rest, and start anew each and every day. If letting go and forgiving feels difficult, trying setting the intention to let go and allow forgiveness with the passage of time.

Come to work grounded. Do your inner prep-work before you step in the work door. Meditate, mantra, exercise do what you can to maximize your happiness quotient.

Remember that you are a sovereign being. Each moment is a chosen moment by you. You can chose how you will feel about your work.

 

Fear Fundamentals

“May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism.”

– Unknown

I had a great lesson about fear today. This morning, after waking up early and feeling proud of myself for meditating AND doing yoga, I was faced with a high (family) drama situation, and it ALL happened before 7:30 am! My 5 year old daughter who is in the phase of life where she is losing her front teeth, unexpectedly had one of her front teeth almost knocked out by her brother last night while rough-housing before bed. She awoke this morning in a haze of fear. I failed to figure out exactly what was causing the fear; fear of pain, blood, looking funny, loss of control, being teased by kids at school… it could have been any number of things. In her young mind, she assumed that if she stayed tucked in that state of fear induced paralysis for long enough, the tooth drama would just magically go away. Her Mommy and Daddy had the lucky job of bringing down the hammer of reality.

“We must move past the fear, my sweet girl”. As parents, finding the least harmful option out of an out-right lame list of choices is tricky terrain. The goal – DO NO HARM. And when that is not possible, option B becomes – Do the Least Amount of Harm possible.

In the final analysis, fear is an important tool for human beings. It works great when running from a runaway train. In my opinion, we humans have become quite fond of the benefits of FEAR. Wait did she say benefits? Yes, I did! Fear enables us to live a life outside of the NOW moment. It’s great for that. If we are always thinking about how to be prepared for the unknown, we miss where we actually are. Our bodies may be in the now, but we are not in our bodies when we are in fear, we are actually visiting the place or thing we are afraid of. Meaning, we are unplugged from our selves, and ungrounded and totally separate from the NOW moment. This also wreaks havoc on all aspects of our beings: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The benefit? Avoiding the discomfort of the unknown.

Fear in the physical body causing the release of harmful stress hormones that increase likelihood of dis-ease.

Fear in the emotional body show up as emotional blocks, which are the locations of “issues” in your energetic body. Over time, these emotional blocks can make it more and more difficult to cope and interfere with the healthy flow of energy in the emotional body, which can lead to the development of physical symptoms (i.e. pushing down fear through over eating).

Allowing fear into the mental body by watching fear saturated images on television and the media, or living lives that embrace “preemptive” approaches to problems can distract us from the ever present magic and serendipity that is constantly nudging and validating us along our path. A thought pattern based in fear sounds like “I really want to go to the beach today, but I am afraid it might rain”. The fear is the of the unknown. The rain is the excuse not to be in the moment. Closing the door on an activity that would otherwise create unlimited possibilities.

Fear in the spirit body makes it very difficult for us to actualize our “higher” goals, which includes manifesting our dreams and connecting with our inner truth.

Living a life free of fear is a choice. It takes evaluating the kinds of interactions we engage in every day. From the types of television shows we watch (i.e. crime shows, shows where people are treating one another badly, violent shows, natural disaster shows and the like) to the way we relate to the world. Am I perpetuating a life of fear for myself and family? How do I live a life where fear is not over utilized?

By 7:40am, my daughter had survived having her tooth pulled and all calm was restored.

I would love to hear what you think about clearing the fear from your life, and what you do to make life more fear-free.

Until then, have a glorious day!

Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.
