I used to be a very opinionated, argumentative tree hugger type (not to stereotype or anything; )
I didn’t understand how to be passionate about something and not have a chip on my shoulder about it when others didn’t have the same viewpoint.
I couldn’t understand why people could be so ignorant and asleep, to what I then saw as the demise of our environment, the abuse of animals and the general uncaring attitude that people had towards things that seemed of the utmost importance to me.
I was reminded of this recently when my daughter came home from a 2 month long trip to Sri Lanka and Nepal.
She is worried about the planet. She doesn’t understand why we don’t all drink out of hemp bottles. She is frustrated and angered by people that just don’t seem to care. She thinks Trump is the antichrist.
I get it. I understand. I know what it feels like to be so passionate and emotionally invested in something that it drives you nuts seeing other people not care at all about it.
But here’s the deal (from an energetic, manifesting perspective)—
It doesn’t matter if it’s the Donald Trump supporters (or haters), the tree huggers or the Bernie Sanders lovers.
It doesn’t matter if it’s fear about terrorists (so we never leave our homes) or fear of the polar ice caps melting.
If you’re arguing, pushing, worrying and PRIMARILY placing your focus on the “WHAT’S WRONG” part of anything—you’re setting yourself up for more disappointment and more things to worry about.
You don’t get a clean, healthy planet by being PRIMARILY angry and pissed off by people who have 18 kids, drive SUV’s or don’t recycle.
You get a clean, vibrant planet by seeing it as a thriving, healthy thing (yep, even when all evidence points to it being otherwise).
Yes, there are times when anger and fierce passion about causes and injustices have created great changes and shifts in things—but I can guarantee, the focus didn’t stay long on the anger and disgust, but shifted quickly to a passion and drive to create a solution (and that feels better)
Whether it’s people freaking out about who our next president is going to be or worrying about the fate of our planet—we’ve got to understand how critical it is to keep the focus + energy on HOW WE WOULD LIKE IT TO BE.
Even when we see evidence of things we don’t want (litter, mean people, presidential candidates we don’t like, polar bears balancing on a tiny, thin piece of ice, etc..) the key is to keep the focus on what’s wanted, work in a positive way towards that goal and then let go a little.
Yep . . . .let go a little. Because if we hold on soooooo tightly to what we want—energetically speaking—it comes across as an energy of desperation, rather than desire. And that isn’t how we attract things we want—by being desperate or fanatical.
I know its a HUGE energetic leap of faith for most of us (to let go and keep the focus on what’s wanted rather than what’s perceived)—but it’s the most critical part of the energy/vibration/manifesting deal.
So just for today—whatever chip you may have on your shoulder about whatever topic you feel passionate about—try seeing it from another angle.
Try letting go of the darkness of it and allowing the light to be with it—transforming it into a knowing that no matter what—it’s all good.
Because whether you’re a tree hugger, or a Trump lover—you won’t get closer to what you want by being angry about it all the time, or by trying to get everyone else to think the way you do.
Do your thing. Be passionate. And of course, care what you care about.
Just don’t let the evidence of what’s wrong, what’s broken, what bugs you, what you want to change, what makes you seething mad, what makes you disappointed in humanity—throw you off course and block you from enjoying life.
Keep the focus on the desire, not the disappointment.
And do it from a place of light, of forgiveness, of hope and of positive expectancy.
