I want this blog post to be short and sweet. I think it is very important for everyone to create a love circle for themselves. There are many things that we can over analyze, fixate, or dwell on that do not serve us well. Just this morning I had an argument or should I say, an intense conversation with someone who I had argued with earlier in the week. After the first argument, I was a bit flustered and spending far too much of my energy over analyzing it. I soon noticed this and recognized how thinking about it (a lot more than I should have) was bringing me nothing but frustration and anger. I decided right then and there that I was going to let it go. I cut the string that was binding me with this negative energy together and BOOM, it was gone. And I hadn’t really thought about that conversation/argument until this morning, when I unexpectedly ran into this person again. Now, between the time that the first argument had occurred and this morning’s conversation, I had had a discussion with a friend about how he could create a love circle for himself. It seemed he had a tendency to surround himself with bogus energy and it continually brought him unnecessary drama that caused him to suffer. I told him to imagine a love circle surrounding his body that only allowed positive, warm, loving, and compassionate energy into this circle. Then I advised him to imagine a little door attached to this love circle that allowed him to release any negative energy that he may be holding onto. I asked him to slowly open the door and cut the string that tied him to the negative energy. “Now watch, I said, as the energy rapidly disappears out of the door, into the unknown, where it can no longer hurt you.” Then, gracefully shut the door. As I was explaining this to him, I realized that this was a good practice for me, and for everyone. And so this morning, after I had succumbed to a second argument with this person and after I called a friend to bitch about how annoying I thought this person was and blah, blah, blah, I realized that I was doing it again. I was giving this situation too much of my energy, when it didn’t benefit me whatsoever. It made me angry and frustrated and that really wasn’t what I wanted to focus on! I wanted to have a good day, just as it had started earlier that morning. So I closed my eyes and imagined my love circle surrounding me. I took all of the frustration and annoyance, bundled it up, and opened my door, allowing it all to be sucked out. I then shut the door and felt a sense of relief throughout my entire body. I was free to be me without any bad energy bringing me down or distracting me from the beauty that surrounded me. TA-DAH! It is that simple. Don’t make it more complicated than it needs to be. Is something or someone bothering you? Open the door to your love circle and let it GO. You may need to re-visit some of your situations or dilemmas at another time, but for now, if it isn’t serving you any purpose let it go until you can see the truth in the matter. Be calm, be gentle, BE YOU!
