My Greatest Teacher 10/18/2011
I had a lovely reader send in a fantastic Soul Session Question to me a couple of weeks ago. + though I still want to answer it in a video response, I felt it's message needed to be heard in the here + now.
Her email read something like this...
I have a question for you personally but i am sure your answer would be helpful to everyone. I would like to know how do you stay in a good place to be able to stay so positive, do your card readings and your soul sessions, etc., on days that everything is going wrong and you are upset or in a bad mood?
What if something is really upsetting like if you got into a fight with your husband or something.( I did say IF) If it were me I would just be no good that day until things were resolved but that makes me feel like my moods depend on other people and I know that is not right either so i was wondering what do you do to stay in that good place even when things are going wrong?
Thank you for writing me this amazing question.
I feel there are two things you are asking me here...
Let's Get down to it
How do I function in a way that is not dependent upon the
circumstances + emotions of others?
My good friend Mali Apple, co-author of The Soulmate Experience says that any conflict you are presented with, whether it be a person or a circumstance, may be your greatest teacher.
There are times when certain events or conversations shake me to my core + it takes me a little longer than expected to jump back up on my feet.
But when I am faced with an obstacle, even in a relationship
I know it is there to teach me something.
I allow myself to experience any upset that may be present for me. Letting myself cry, punch a pillow, right a nasty letter that I'll never send or scream + after all of those emotions are released + addressed, I look for what there is to learn.
Although this can be hard to swallow this concept in a fit of rage, it always boils down to being very true. I know this from experience.
I believe the simple awareness of switching your mindset from trying figure out how to solve the "problem" to looking at what there is to learn from the "problem" creates an entirely new way of being + moving through your day.
Even if the "problem" isn't resolved.
Because now, you have become the student instead of the victim. + THAT gives you all the power in the world.
