I haven't been here for a minute but I have so much to talk about today. I hope this finds you well and after reading this you realize just how POWERFUL you truly are!!
I watched the last Oprah show today. I wanted to see how she would end things and how she would bring this chapter of her life to a close. I really got more than I bargained for. For 50 minutes, Oprah basically taught, preached and inspired in a way that I had never seen her do. I left that experience with tears in my eyes and feeling more in charge of my life and more inspired than I have EVER felt before. Her moving to a new chapter in her life made me realize that I was doing the same thing and didn’t really acknowledge it that way. This is a new chapter for me too.
Something she said got under my skin really deep. She said one of her guests said to her “You are responsible for your own energy”. That hit me like a ton of bricks and I had an “A HA moment”. My entire life I have been able to sense energy and auras of others but I didn’t know what I was feeling and what I was experiencing; I understand now that this is a gift from God. For YEARS I let people rob me of my energy and make me feel like I was less than and good for nothing. I felt like such a misfit and I thought something was wrong with me. I dismissed what I felt as just me being over emotional or sometimes just plain crazy. I wouldn't tell people what I felt and just came to the conclusion that everyone else was right about me and I was wrong. That is what low self esteem will do to you. I wasted so much time GIVING energy to things and people that didn’t mean my energy any good. I realize now this crucial thing:
PEOPLE WERE SO BUSY TELLING ME WHO I WASN’T, BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT ME TO KNOW WHO I WAS; IF I NEVER FIGURED OUT WHO I WAS, THEY COULD CONTROL ME AND MAKE ME BE LESS THAN THEY WERE.
What a POWERFUL revelation for me! I knew there were people that meant me harm and went out of their way to hurt me. That was by design, because if I realized that I WAS GREAT, they would realize THEY WERE NOT! But now I know the truth; now I know what I was feeling and dealing with. I WASN’T A MISFIT AFTER ALL. I am not the names they call me. I am not the worthless person that they made me believe I was. I DO have gifts. I DO have talent. I DO have an anointing. I DO have a calling. I DO have a purpose. I DO sense positive and negative energy. Guess what my friend? SO DO YOU! Someone reading this has felt the same way. Energy transference is REAL.
I had a Reiki treatment a few months ago. The definition of Reiki is:“A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
This was BETTER than ANY massage that I have EVER had in my life. She manipulated my energy field and she NOT ONCE put her hands on me. The whole experience took 45 minutes. When she finished, I was so relaxed, at peace and exhausted, you would think I had played a contact sport. All I wanted to do was go home and PRAY and then go to sleep. It was AWESOME. I would encourage you to have a Reiki session; you will know after that that energy is REAL and PRESENT. (If you need a referral to the place I go, just ask me and I will be more than happy to give you one). I say all of that to say this; you cannot allow everyone to transfer energy to you and you shouldn’t give your energy to everyone. That energy is a force that God has given us and through our spirit selves, we can use this energy to sense things around us and DISCERN things. This energy is unique to each of us and is truly a gift from God. When was the last time that you felt that someone you were around was “negative”, yet they hadn’t done anything to you or said anything to you? Then you find out that you were right. That is discernment of the Spirit and that discernment filters through that energy.
GOD CREATED US ALL TO BE WONDERFUL, POWERFUL AND UNIQUE. Embrace your POWER and your UNIQUENESS. KNOW THAT GOD IS LOVE IS GOD!
Until next time
Sharpen your Edge and your LIFE will never be DULL!
