Some people, places or situations simply aren’t aligned with us. They’re too toxic. They leave us feeling depleted instead of uplifted. Drained. Zapped.
With people, in particular, these are the ones who do not know how to manage and run their energies.
They have very little if at all awareness of their patterns, especially the unhealthy and destructive ones.
They go about their lives on auto-pilot mode not knowing that they’re dumping their stuff on to others.
They don’t realize how intoxicating and harmful the effect of their lack of self-awareness is on other people.
I’m not saying that out of judgment, but merely an acknowledgment of the incompatibility and misalignment in our energies. And the fact is, not all will align with our energies.
Those that do are welcome to stay.
Those that don’t have no place — or right — to be in our lives.
Self-Respect. Self-Love. Say No.
It is our responsibility — as an act of self-respect and self-love — to keep only those that align with us and our energies, and to say no and get rid of those that don’t.
We have the power, the freedom and the right to decide which ones get to stay or from which ones we need to keep away. No guilt or shame there. No explanation or justification necessary either.
Just like with a gardener who watches out for weeds and pests, we, too, need to be vigilant about such elements and get rid of them — to keep our “garden” vibrant, healthy and tidy. 🙂 ☀ ☀ ☀ 🙂
No new news. But the article is well-timed and a much-needed reminder — as with anything and everything.
In a previous post, I talked about the weakness of my kidney meridian that the acupuncturist pointed out to me.
Kidney-related conditions are associated with blockages and imbalances in the root chakra.
Boundary-setting is one of the spiritual lessons of the root chakra, and the opportunities for me to define and enforce my boundaries — with people, places, and situations — have consistently and constantly been showing up in my life.
Especially in recent years after I returned in 2010 to the Philippines, my country of origin.
And even more so now that I’m living in the city again — not to mention in a neighborhood that isn’t quite aligned with my energies, preferences and lifestyle, yikes! 😦
I must, therefore, vigilantly keep on tending to my garden — with what I allow or prohibit.
Lest I end up with garbage and toxic wastes.
Not exactly a pretty sight! 😦
And certainly not the Life that would bring me — and those with whom I come in contact — much Joy and Delight! 😮
And you, how are you tending to your “garden”?
