From BLAME to BLESSED?
I have decided to start my classes every week with a special theme, or intention.
This week we are talking about releasing blame, sending blessings to those who we might have conflict with and lastly to become very slow and very, very selective as to how we react to all situations.
In fact, 99% of the time, we don’t need to react at all. The best way to decide how and if a reaction is necessary is to take it in, think or pray on this and then after much consideration decide if this situation or person is worth your reaction. I am talking mostly negative or resistant reactions, of course.
When we react quickly with anger, we lose our power. Our own power, our own energy is given away to something or someone who is not worthy of our energy. We must be careful in selecting where we put our energy. “Where attention goes, energy flows.”
If you are feeling drained or emotionally “spent”, then most likely you are giving too much of yourself to others. If you feel filled and whole after giving energy then filled and whole feelings will return to you. But, if you're feeling sad, low or worn out giving your energy then that will be your return. This is why you must be very slow and careful to where you place your attention and if you will react or will just let it be and walk away.
Blame. Blaming others for your unhappiness will inevitably lead you to much frustration and resentment in your life. This in turn is what you're putting out and therefore you will receive. I totally understand that you might have every right to blame someone for something they have done to you that hurt. However, all that this is doing to you is putting out your light, not their's. YOURS. You are the one that is putting off an energy of resentment and hurt and unfortunately, that is what is going to become attracted back to you in your life.
Again, what you put out you will always get back.
How do I deal? How do I stay in peace when someone has wronged me in the worse way? How do I not send blame to others who have tried knowingly to cause me great unhappiness in my life?
I send them a blessing. Before I can even think of the hurt they caused me. Before I can even remember all of the reasons that they did me wrong. Before I let ANY of those thoughts or feelings in....I just say “Bless You”(to myself). Then I become transparent to those negative emotions and I let them just float right through me and out of me as if they never existed.
Yes, it takes work. But, it is a choice that you must make over and over again. Then one day it will just click and you wont even have to think about it. You will just send the blessing and the blessing will come right back to you.

My class TOMORROW morning at 6:00 is a great way to ease into this practice. We move VERY slow to get the most out of each stretch. Creating much length in our body and we learn to breath. Breathing can help you to work through not just physical stress of the body but emotional stress as well. Will you join?
