We just got back from a trip to Chandler, AZ.
The older I get, the more convinced I am that there is something to positive and negative energy. When I wake up every morning, before I get out of bed, I remind myself of what I'm grateful for. It starts my day off right and makes me feel good about what's in front of me. I think about my son and our close family and all the love I have in my life. However hard we try to surround ourselves with people who are good and who care about us, though, there will always be those who, for some reason, have negative energy. They can be hurtful and cause you sadness or pain.
My grandmother (Chitti Patti) used to say, " Immerse them with kindness". Another strategy is: "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." There is a lot of wisdom in these two old sayings. Instead of trying to get revenge, take the high road. Let it go. Instead of trying to get back at someone because he/ she has hurt you, think of one nice thing about that person and put that out into the universe instead. If you don't let it go, that person's negativity will stay inside you, and that is exactly where you don't want that energy to be.
So the next time you're hurt by someone, wish that person well in your heart and tell your brain to move on and think about something else that matters. You will be amazed at how it releases your negative energy. People can't control you if you won't let them.
