Deflecting Discomfort

There has been a request and I would like to elaborate on something here.

Many of you are exposed to discomforting energies on a regular basis - some are even directed at you specifically either by those who are angry or perhaps jealous or any of a wide variety of other intentions.

There is one major thing you can do that will deflect the bulk of this from effecting you in any way and that major thing is to develop and maintain a good feeling about yourself.

Of course we all get down on ourselves once in a while but lets make an effort now to develop and maintain a good feeling about ourselves. Let us not continually allow the artificial images promoted by television or other forms of artificial stimulation - such as advertisements to decide for us whether we have worth or value based upon those agendas.

Let us decide right now that we are valuable, we are important and that we deserve to experience a most benevolent life and a most benevolent way of being. That we deserve the respect of others and that when we receive it we appreciate it, we acknowledge it with grace and we give respect to others as well.

What I am saying here is this - that the major means of deflecting discomfort is feeling good about yourself. It is not sufficient to make this mental.

So, this is what I want you to do - a little extra homework for those of you who are here to learn. I'd like you to do this meditation or visualization. Picture yourself in any benevolent environment you choose - whatever it may be. Feel yourself surrounded by friends that like you, love you and appreciate you. They can be human beings, animals, plants, anything - and feel the benevolent feeling that ensues.

Pay attention to the physical feelings in your body. Notice how you feel when you feel good about yourself and you're surrounded by others who also feel good about you. Make an effort then, to maintain this feeling. If you need to do this visualization again then do it because as long as you can memorize that feeling in your physical body and experience it in such a way as you truly can remember it, you will find that you will notice it if it is absent.

If you notice that, try to do the quick visualization and bring the feeling to you. Then - even if you are exposed to an environment where you do not feel appreciated you will not be effected because your good feelings about yourself will deflect most of it.

For any other forms of deflection you can look to this blog or my other and find what you can find and do the homework as you will. I'm sure there's plenty here to do as I am sure you all have other ways to develop good feelings about yourself, good feelings about others and to spread this around as you choose.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

It is so easy to forget what our selfhood target should be isn't it? Bombarded by advertising and consumeritis (I think I invented a word there)the world encroaches on what being knowledgable about what our feeling of self worth feels like. Yours is good advice, as always.
