Thoughts raced in my mind quicker than a speeding bullet or at least that sounds about right. Fear seems to be contagious in a way. I would hang around certain people and before long I would have fears racing in my head and some of those fears did not belong to me. So, was I supposed to live in a bubble? or just run like hell from people? But choices that I came up with did not go with my personality. I am a lover of people and even animals too. I loved talking to people about life and experiences but if I got around a crew that had a thousand and one buts as to why they are not happy and where they want to be and had something negative say about not only themselves but other people I would slowly feel myself loosing energy as I absorbed their crap. My husband says to me all of the time that I listen and that’s all people want is for someone to listen but I wasn’t just listening I was absorbing and I wasn’t getting paid for it. The thing is this. I have to learn how to step in take my power back and do what makes me feel great and that’s speaking life over myself and others. So toss those negative thoughts out the door and welcome in new people and situations.
Steps to elevate Negativity in your Life
1. Pray( please a prayer in your God box asking God to change your mind set and place positive and progressive people in your life and block out all of those that aren’t right for you)
2. Live your life (Do fun things….laugh a lot and worry less)
3. At the end of the day and before your day begins MEDITATE
4. Exercise more( walks in nature)
5. Eat healthier( going to sleep after eating cake will have you dreaming all kinds of crazy stuff.
6. If somebody is around you and everything is negative just walk away and politely excuse yourself *you might be alone for awhile but honey that is better than being around someone that dumps their crap on you…
Gardens can teach you so much about life and living. I am sure most of you are wondering how can a garden teach about life? and those of you who are wise already understand that it is a must to start a garden to merely confirm what you are learning about life. Now…. when I first started my garden I had a mixture of fruits and vegetables all in one closed in area and some plants brought specific types of insects and other repelled insects but I had to plant plenty of seeds and even a variety of seeds to figure out which ones would be a great fit for my gardens environment. We, as in…. humans tend to plant a variety of seeds not knowing which ones will kill the other or support the other we just throw them all into the garden and watch as they grow and then we typically move things around and even out of our gardens. Everything PLANTED and every seed sown is NOT meant to stay in your gardens if you expect your garden to flourish. One must tend to their garden and clear out weeds, and bug just as we must know when to uproot relationships and negative situations in our lives. Just like plants in our gardens that decay we must learn how to uproot and toss out decaying and diseased relationships we wouldn’t want to KEEP attracting disease causing bugs into our gardens now would we?

I was passing a church near my home and on the billboard in large letters I saw the phrase WOUNDED HEALER and I started to think that hey, that’s me, a wounded healer. I have been through so much pain and heartache that I can just about relate to a variety of testimonies and have a gift that seems like a curse at times. The gift of feeling the pain and issues of others and being able to relate because I am a wounded healer or better yet I am extremely empathic. Empathy can create a load of issues. If you are an empath or wounded healer you must learn how to separate yourself from stressful situations and scenarios that don’t belong to you. Because of your helpfulness and ability to relate to others you are now carrying around feelings that your don’t own and in this case your wounds are reopened and you are back in your head again with a thousand and one fears, anxieties and woes that have been dumped over and onto you. It is so imperative for empaths or wounded healers to center and clear self regularly.
I am sure you are wondering, how do I center and clear myself and I have a couple of exercises I do. After a client or friend has dumped a boat load of issues onto me I quickly do a chakra clearing meditation, brisk walk on a nature trail, and take a long essential oil and sea salt bath to sort of clear myself. So, if you are a wounded healer/ empathy try some of these activities to clear your energy.
