How many times have you started your day with a sense of gratitude and joy only to have someone else come in and steal your mojo?
Maybe it’s a loved one in a grumpy mood …
Maybe it’s a co-worker gossiping about their latest target …
Perhaps it’s the guy or gal in a huge hurry that cuts you off during your morning commute …
Well, truth be told, no one can REALLY steal your mojo … we are actually the ones that decide where our energy goes. Yep, we actually get to choose how we show up in each situation. We get to choose our attitude, our reactions and our responses.
I know, I know, it can feel soooo personal when somebody else is having a bad attitude and spewing their stuff all over, but HOW COOL THAT WE GET TO CHOOSE HOW WE RESPOND!
I would like to offer you a new tool that can help to shift your energy and help you maintain a sense of joy and peace, no matter what anyone else has going on. Any time there is a person, place or situation that feels like it’s pulling your energy away from you, you can use this simple visualization tool to reconnect with the Divine that is within you, which will, in turn, help you to maintain your own energy. You may find it helpful in heated family situations or challenging times at work. You could even use it as a barrier when you are listening to harmful media or news programs.
Visualize or imagine a glorious white rose about 3 feet in front of you … notice the perfection of its soft petals … the gentle strength of its stem … its vibrant and luscious green leaves. Inhale deeply and perhaps you will even sense its beautiful angelic aroma. Notice the subtle power that emanates from it … creating within you a sense of peace, calm, and well-being.
Now, notice this beautiful essence radiating outward towards you … inhale its tranquil splendor. See yourself calm, relaxed, and at peace. Feel yourself filled with its strength and magnificence as you begin to bring into your mind’s eye the current situation that is troubling you.
You are safe to observe from a place of comfort and security. Know that the rose is taking on all of the negativity so that you no longer have to. Allow the rose to absorb any and all negativity… seen or unseen. You are safe. You are protected. Their experience is not YOUR experience.
Feel yourself gaining wisdom, strength and clarity from it gentle presence.
Give thanks for the unconditional love and support of The Universe and KNOW that all is well.
Know that you can return to this exercise any time that you are feeling disconnected or overwhelmed by someone else’s energy.
You may also choose to repeat the following affirmation whenever you feel the need: I am safe and protected, now and always.
