Wisdom for healing: Day 1

I've been super grouchy lately. I think it's cause I'm holding on to way to much. Sometimes I have to stop and realize I am a nice person and my heart gets wounded easily. No matter how many times I try to be tough, or not care about something. In the end, I do care. I care too much. So part of my healing in these times of too much on my shoulders is to stop and think about taking care of my spirit. I'm gonna go through a deck of cards I bought and post one each day along with my reflection on the lesson.

This is more for me but I hope if it comes in handy for any of you that you use it as well.

Today's Lesson: 

Engage in psychic cleansing. How much debris do you carry in your energy field? Debris is generated by irritation, stress, unfinished business, and mental and emotional toxins. It's distracting and disempowering to the healing process.

Your goal: 

To release unnecessary thoughts and emotions.

Some stuff I will try:

Here are a few simple things that can help you:

  • Reduce the amount of time you read the newspapers or watch the news on TV.
  • Stay away from negative conversations and from negative people.
  • Don't hold grudges. Learn to forget and forgive. Nurturing ill feelings and grievances hurts you and causes lack of sleep.
  • Don't be jealous of others. Being jealous means that you have low self-esteem and consider yourself inferior to others. Jealousy and low self esteem, often lead to lack of inner peace.
  • Accept what cannot be changed. This saves a lot of time, energy and worries.
  • Learn to be more patient and tolerant with people and events.
  • Don't take everything too personally. A certain degree of emotional and mental detachment is desirable. Try to view your life and other people with a little detachment and less involvement. Detachment is not indifference, lack of interest or coldness. It is the ability to think and judge impartially and logically.
Every day, we face numerous inconveniences, irritations and situations that are beyond our control. If we can change them, that's fine, but this is not always possible. We must learn to put up with such things and accept them cheerfully.

You will also need to:
  • Let bygones be gone. Forget the past and concentrate on the present moment. There is no need to evoke unpleasant memories and immerse yourself in them.
  • Practice some concentration exercises. This will help you to reject unpleasant thoughts and worries that steal away your peace of mind.
  • Learn to practice meditation. Even a few minutes a day will make a change in your life.
  • Inner peace ultimately leads to external peace. By creating peace in our inner world, we bring it into the external world, affecting other people too.

Flor, this is something that I have been thinking about a lot lately. Especially with the kinds of topics that I sometimes cover...it can get depressing very quickly. Also, the blogging community can have a "keeping up with the Jones'" kind of mentality at times and it gets exhausting. I love your idea of simplifying and putting positive energy first. Wishing you the best of luck and a peaceful new year. ♥
