Take or Break

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculptures mounted on wooden cube atop glassWhen you ask someone for their advice, you are asking them to give their opinion on what they think you should do.  That’s a big responsibility for them.  However, you have the option of considering whether or not you want to take their advice.  In doing so, you’re exercising your free will.

But what if you act on the advice and then things don’t turn out as you thought they would?  Are you going to blame them because you acted on their opinion?  In the end, you are responsible for all your actions.  Whether or not you asked for the advice, accepted it and acted on it are all aspects of your free will.

I was fortunate to learn the basics of this lesson early in life when, in secondary school, I learned that not everyone would readily accept advice.  My girlfriends often asked me what they should do in a variety of situations, ranging from what they should wear to a dance, to how to complete a homework assignment, to how they should react to a prospective boyfriend.  After doling out advice on many occasions, only to have it often fall on deaf ears, then have my friends return with regretful statements that they wished they had listened to me, I came up with a solution.  Whenever my girlfriends asked for advice, I would tell them: “I can only offer you what I think you should do, because you have to realize it for yourself.  Do you really want to hear what I have to say?”  With that caveat, I felt so much better in spending my time giving an opinion.

During my work in spiritual/natural/quantum/distant healing, my clients are always asking for advice and I’m always readyLeo Jean's Starlike© paper sculptures mounted on wooden cube atop glass with mysuggestions.  Gladly, I learned early that advice is easily given, but not always easily taken.  I respect that someone might only want an opinion and that, in the final analysis, they’re going to do whatever feels right for them.  That’s their free will.  In order to feel like they’re not breaking my free will when they ask for my advice, I always know what to say before giving it.  I’ve learned to make positive suggestions and to allow them to be considered and accepted or rejected without judgment.  I also remind my clients that they can ask their higher self for help in decision making.

Parents have a very fine line to cross between breaking free will and offering guidance to their children.  Sometimes a parent will feel that their free will is being crushed when their child rejects their advice.  A child whose free will is constantly broken will grow rebellious, but when their free will is respected, they are allowed to live in harmony.

It’s a good idea to consider that, whenever you allow someone else to break your free will or you break theirs, you’re impeding your own spiritual progress.

Reacting to Negativity

Leo Jean's Starlike© Opposites; paper sculptures atop bottle with layered color resin interiorWhen you first recognize the onset of negativity, whether physical or spiritual, it’s your responsibility to react immediately to counteract its effect.  Once you accept negativity at any level, it will begin to augment whatever thought, emotion or sensation that was initially affected. 

As soon as I sense that negativity is being sent to interfere with my well-being, I’ve learned to respond by first refusing it while asking my spirit to help me to return it to the source with the Light*.  The foremost reaction is to refuse and return the negativity, but there’s often more work to do.

Although I’ve refused the initial impact of negativity, I will most often have to fight off the supporting negativity that accompanies it.  Depending on the intention of the sender, whether it’s from a spiritual or physical source, there could be further negative interference that needs to be neutralized.  For instance, if I allow doubt to set in at any point while making a decision, my acceptance will bring the negativity of that doubt into the process, thereby attracting further spiritual opposition that makes it much harder to realize a positive outcome.  So, if doubt is the negative interference, then each time doubt arises, I will have to refuse and return it by working with my spirit as in my initial reaction.

If you insert fear, anxiety, sadness, self-pity, frustration, guilt, jealousy, hatred or any other negative emotion where the term ‘doubt’ is used above, the process of dealing with it is essentially the same.  If you allow the effects of negativity to thrive, it will build upon itself into an enormous brick wall with plenty of mortar.

After I’ve engaged in the refusal process, it’s important to switch myself into a positive mode that allows me to continue with minimal interference.  Another natural way I deal with negativity is to take advantage of my intuitive skills.  In the case of making a decision, it helps to ask my higher self to help me, since it is much less vulnerable to interference than my physical self.

Because I’ve been diligently practicing the positive principles of working with the Light as part of my daily routine, my spirit has accumulated more positive knowledge and energy.  As a result, together we are far more capable of eliminating the sources of negativity that continuously try to obstruct our efforts to achieve a positive existence.

One of the most rewarding aspects of working with my spirit is that I’m now equipped to counteract the negativity that interferes with my progress at all levels of my being.

A Refreshing Challenge

Leo Jean's Starlike© paper sculpture atop glass flowerWhen you ask for the light and decide to work with a positively oriented spirit, you’ll experience a positive higher-level perspective to your life.  As you choose to stand in the positive realm, you’ll gain the knowledge of how to deal with higher-level interference by using the pure white light.  You’ll realize more positive outcomes to your efforts as you work with your spirit to improve your life.  The benefits will be immediately evident:

1.  Your resolve will be strengthened.  When you work with your spirit, you’ll be equipped with the confidence of knowing that, when directed, your spirit will respond and assist you.  Your fear of introducing change into your life will be diminished as you replace it with determination and confidence.

2.  Your awareness of incoming sources of negativity will be heightened.   As you work with your spirit and remain calmly vigilant, you’ll see improvements in how you recognize and assess negative conditions and spiritual assaults, so that you can act more quickly to diffuse them. By being able to identify the signals that you’re receiving negativity, you’ll be better prepared to deal with it as it hits you.

3.  Your ability to refuse negativity will be increased.   The combined efforts of you and your spirit to refuse and return negativity at the spiritual level will be immensely powerful, because the light will respond to you instantaneously.  Refusal in a timely manner will curtail negative thoughts or emotions that could eventually snowball into anger, anxiety or sadness. When you have a spiritual means to refuse negativity, you’ll be less vulnerable to its impact.

4.  There will be an improvement in your decision-making skills.  You’ll be able to consider more clearly the consequences of how negatively or positively your decisions might affect you.  It will be easier to detect negative trends and begin to counteract them to produce positive results.  You’ll respect the free will of others and ensure that you don’t allow anyone to break yours.

5.  You will enjoy increased energy as you properly refuse negativity.  As you progress with your spirit, you’ll get better at eliminating the draw on your energy that results from absorbing negativity from others and from allowing others to drain your energy.  In addition, when you refuse negativity at its source, you’ll decrease the accumulation of negative spirits that are drawn to and feed off of negativity. You’ll be more relaxed as you handle stress as negativity and your ability to recharge with the pure white light will mount as you progress.

6.  You’ll take more responsibility for your actions.  As you realize your spirit-body connection, your perception of who you are and how you conduct yourself at all levels will take on a new dimension.  As you take responsibility for every experience in your life, whether negative or positive, you’ll take control of your existence.

7.  You’ll learn to convert the negative aspects of your life into positive and productive elements. There are many ways to creatively change a negative atmosphere into a positive experience, whether at home, in the workplace or in public.  There’s no better way to deal with negativity than to convert it into a positive element!

It all comes down to taking on the challenge of being positive in an increasingly negative world.  With a light-committed spirit and the knowledge of how to work with it, you can rapidly refresh your life!
