Have you ever received an unexpected metaphorical slap to the face?
I have. Several times this week. Totally catching me off guard in both situations. The first from a cherished loved one who just doesn't understand my path yet and can't sympathize with any of this. A complete overcomplication and almost mocking of my journey.
The second from an aquaintance who rattled off an apocalyptic diatribe of supposed outcomes if I continue on the crazy train I'm currently on.
Does the slap sting any hotter if it's a cherished loved one versus a stranger on the street?
For me not. Being empathic means that it all stings hot and barbed. My aura hurts.
Yet being on a spiritual path means living in love and light at all times because that is the only way we roll. So I turn the other cheek and send the slappers white light and love. I light my sage and smudge my aura clean of any remaining sting. I ask the Archangels to help me clear my energy. I forgive and release the situation.
But sometimes I still wonder, what is happening here? Why is it okay to mock and diatribe and sting others so. What supposed relief does this bring to the slappers. And why for goodness sakes are they messing with me? Am I too nice. An easy target? Did I somehow egg somebody on with all my love and light?
They say that like attracts like but I'm not so sure. Sometimes I think that love and light attract jealousy and misunderstanding. So I pray and ask to be spared this hurt. Ask to deflect and shield myself of those that do harm knowingly and unknowingly. So be it and so it is.
Blessings all. I have to go meditate now.
