I used to be so tough on the outside and so vulnerable on the inside. My deep sense of vulnerability made me very defensive. I also would get out in front of any perceived attack by being the attacker. I was on high alert ALL of the time, and it was exhausting!
In my life experience, one of the most common things I see is that people get hurt and offended, and then they feel justified in attacking back. AND the really intense part of that whole painful mess is that it happens so fast that we don’t even really know what’s going on.
If we’d like to get to the bottom of it and turn the ship around, we have to have a great willingness to let the upset go in favor of Peace. Most people don’t have enough motivation. For me, Self-Love became my great motivation. I actively choose to Love myself, and so not being at Peace is not worth it. It’s an attack upon my very Self.
When I look deeply into things, there can be a great heart opening and a change.
Example: I FINALLY learned how to handle the times when I feel threatened with spiritual maturity. Now, if I have a moment with a loved one and I feel the old impulse to defend or attack, I can make a new choice.
I’ve learned when the thing to do at that moment is to withdraw and just let it all be.
I can give it up to Spirit to teach me about the meaning of it and the value of whatever’s going on.
I know that everything works together for good and there are no exceptions. When I take a step back, before too long I can remember that this person says snarky comments to everyone they love and it’s not personal to me. I could really feel that was true, and that felt like healing to me.
Now I can go back to the person with a new attitude. I can return to the scene of the “crime,” so glad and grateful that I hadn’t retaliated or escalated in any way. This leaves the door open to a closer connection and more intimacy in my relationships – which I enjoy greatly.
What I’ve come to see is that my willingness to stay cool, to not be offended, and instead have compassion is also an extension of compassion to my former self who was CONSTANTLY making snarky comments.
Also, I see that my willingness to not be hurt and to go back into the “fray” is an affirmation of my loving acceptance of myself and my loved one, and that brought more Love between us.
I am so grateful I can choose a better way.
It’s a moment-by-moment practice that builds our mastery and keeps our Peace. It’s beautiful!
Being masterful with our emotions and relationships is just one of the important and valuable things we practice in my yearlong Masterful Living Course. We actively practice healing the sense of separation that keeps us disconnected from Spirit. We cultivate the relationship with Spirit. We transform the most painful parts of our life.
Real people having real miracles.
