Quote of The Day: Some People Are Like Clouds

some-people-are-like-clouds

I heard this quote on July 1st and it made me laugh. It’s true, in my opinion. Some people are just like clouds. They come in and cast a shadow over you, change the energy around you, cause uneasiness within you. But then when they leave–oh wow, everything seemingly regains light and life. There is indeed a shift when they arrive and when they leave.

Here’s the trick: identifying the ‘clouds’ in your world and then making the decision to either limit your contact with them or steer clear altogether.

We do have choices.

Even if one or more of the ‘clouds’ are related to you, and some of you may not want to admit it—but they are in your life, seemingly waiting to stir up a jaw-dropping storm just because they can—but you do have a choice as to how much time and energy that you invest in that person. Just as you have a choice with deciding the time and energy you invest in every person that you encounter.

You also have a choice as to how you respond to their presence.

You don’t have to give in to the pressure to feel negatively about your interaction with this ‘cloud’. You can choose whether to open the floodgates of toxic waters or to relish the sweet moments that you were enjoying before the ‘cloud’ appeared. I’m beginning to learn how to do the latter. It’s better for the mind, heart, body, spirit, and soul. It truly is.

Why on earth would I help a cloud rain upon me?

Grab an umbrella, poncho or rain coat, a hefty pair of rain boots, and get to splashing. Splash until the rain stops and the cloud clears. Don’t derail your day. Don’t be drained of the light that you were carrying around. Push past it and know that soon, just like all clouds, this one will be sliding off away from you.

Have fun with the smile that grows on your face as you think about this truth. The ‘cloud’ will wonder why it’s planted there all big and bold. Smile bigger.

If the ‘cloud’ is leaving, to never return, then smile bigger. Smile like the Kool-aid man in the commercials we loved years ago.

Your day and all days after will be brighter because that ‘cloud’ won’t be a part of it.

Now smile!

Intimacy and Energy: The Impact on All of Us

My friend Staci shared a post on Facebook by The Mind Unleashed. Now I’m not sure if this is original content by The Mind Unleashed, or if they are sharing information that they gathered elsewhere, so I can only credit what I have seen with my own eyes. I’m sharing this with all of you because it is not only deep, it feels so true–so poignant that I would be wrong to keep it for myself. I’m sharing it because I am a person who thrives off of energy and is very receptive of others energy. My insight and what some would call my “intuition” is extremely strong, so considering the blend of energy with others and how it not only impacts me but them is reason enough to share this with all of you.

My dad told me when I was a very young adult that I needed to always be mindful of those people who I was intimate with (and the depth of my intimacy) because if the numbers were great the magnitude of energy, emotions, and memories could cloud my thinking and being, and make it difficult to truly connect when I found the man who I saw as the “one”, my husband, my mate for life. He used to tell me something to the effect of (I will paraphrase to keep it toned down), “if you have sex with a lot of guys before marriage, when you do find your husband, the images of the ones from the past will flood your mind while you are trying to connect intimately with him. You may fail miserably at making that connection with the one person you were intended to love fully and spend the rest of your life with…”

How deep is that?!?

So today I share with you some powerful words delivered by The Mind Unleashed. After you read it please share your thoughts and be sure to forward this post to others so that we can create some healthy dialogue on this topic, and possibly rewire how and whom we are intimate with. Enjoy!

Pay attention to whom you share your intimate energy with. Intimacy at this level intertwines your aural energy with the aural energy of the other person. These powerful connections, regardless of how insignificant you think they are, leave spiritual debris, particularly within people who do not practice any type of cleansing, physical, emotional or otherwise. The more you interact intimately with someone, the deeper the connection and the more of their aura is intertwined with yours. Imagine the confused aura of someone who sleeps with multiple people and carries around these multiple energies? What they may not realize is that others can feel that energy which can repel positive energy and attract negative energy into your life.I always say, never sleep with someone you wouldn’t want to be. -Lisa Chase Patterson 

We don’t mean practice celibacy or wait until you find “the one” or anything like that. Just be mindful of who you share your valuable energies with.
