Over a month ago, I was on the receiving end of a brief, but nasty, verbal psychic attack. It took me a bit to get over the shock, yet once I did, beyond clearing the energy, I processed and released all of the various emotions around it, forgive myself for why ever it was in my reality, and then let it go.
Or so I was hoping.
It came back around a few weeks later when a friend had a similar experience with the same person and wanted to talk about it. Instantly, my attention went right back to the situation and people involved; I started over-thinking and focusing on it. But all that did was feed it; feed the negativity, feed the upset.
I decided to not speak of the incident again, not from an escapist viewpoint, but from the viewpoint of, "I choose to focus elsewhere, on things that are positive." I was also reminded of the saying that “energy flows where attention goes.”
As I was pondering this, I needed to water my outdoor plants. I thought about attention being like gardening; if you stop feeding the plant water/attention, it dies. I imagined the issue becoming dehydrated of all lifeforce without my attention or energy, and then literally just disappearing.
Sometimes, simply the act of no longer feeding an issue energetically, causes it to cease to exist. And sometimes, a dead plant needs to be ripped out. Once you’ve processed everything you need and the issue is truly dried up and dead, imagine pulling out the experience/memory and watch it dissolve. Then replace it with a positive image of what you'd like to see instead.
This week, become aware of what you’re feeding with your attention; is it something you desire to grow into a magnificent giant oak, or is it something that’s been slowly poisoning you, becoming life sucking vines swirling around your space?
You’re in charge of what you put your attention on, so if you’ve got a giant oak of something that you don’t want anymore, chop it down. Stop feeding it. Rip off those poisonous vines. No one is going to do it for you, you need to do it for yourself.
With spring coming, be ruthless in your spring cleaning, but do it internally. It can be helpful to put post-it notes around your house with what you do choose to focus on because if you keep telling yourself not to focus on something, that’s all you’ll see. You need to fill your mind with something you choose to see instead.
See radiant health, see energy and vitality, see money pouring in, see that brilliant new job, see a healed relationship, see incredible love. Create a new garden, one that can nourish you for years on end!
