Yesterday I fell into a trap. A negative trap. That as soon as I did, I knew it just sucked my energy down in a very big way!
We were at a local hockey game, I left after the 1st period to grab some groceries and came back to see the last period. Unfortunately, I instantly regretted going back. Even though our town team was winning, they were not playing well. It was so rough and they were falling into the other teams negative trap. They were mouthing our team, chirping the players as they skated by the away bench and even up in the stands, one of their fans were yelling to and calling on people from our town, from one corner to another.
I got sucked into the negativity, simply because of the language being used in front of kids but not just that there was NO need for it. Our team was winning, let them chirp, let them drag down into their own negativity. I spoke up to the male fan from the other town, that there was no need for the language they were using or calling each other on to fight. Of course I got told to F off. I get it, the heat of the moment. Its not like Im a pure person who never swears, lord knows I do 😉
For whatever reason, it really rubbed me the wrong way. Im not a fan of violence and if the team is winning, which ours was, just play the game and win gracefully. Which unfortunately also didn’t happen. Yes our team won, but they fell into the other teams trap and there were multiple fights with big consequences. I left feeling like I had wasted my afternoon in going back to watch it. What really happened was I let my walls down. I also let their massive negativity into me which shouldn’t have happened.
While making my lunch today, I did what I typically do, turned on Joel Osteen on our google mini. He is a brilliant speaker in a nondenominational church in texas. If you are looking for someone motivational to listen to – honestly look him up! The sermon that came on I had to look up the title, it hit the nail on the head.
Joel Osteen – Keep Your Walls Up!
I want to talk to you today about “Keeping your walls up”. It’s easy to go through life letting everything get on the inside, offended by what somebody said, worried about a problem at work, upset because of a negative report. We can’t stop all these things from happening. The key is to have walls built up so we don’t allow everything in.
Exactly what I did yesterday, let my walls down. I let the negativity in. Did it directly affect me? Nope. But I fell into the trap myself.
This was exactly what I needed to hear! So timely. Thank you Universe. You work in amazing ways! You do not have to prove anything to anyone. Just continue being authentically you!
After listening to his sermon while making my lunch, I went into my sacred space to ensure my heart and soul really heard this. I start by smudging myself with dried sage. I also like putting Frankincense (Frank is a very high vibration oil!) on my crown chakra and any other oils I might be drawn to on my wrists to ground. Today I used a custom blend I made which includes Neroli, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Wild Orange and a few others. Ahhhh back on track even better now than I was before ❤
