As the Halloween Season quickly approaches, I thought it would be fun to do a blog post with a fun Halloween twist to it.
Recently LIFE seems determined to keep bringing up the subject of People with a .
It seems that I cannot turn on the Television without hearing about some group of people somewhere in the world fighting over some issue.
I can’t go to work without hearing complaint after complaint all day long.
I have been misjudged, misunderstood, and mistreated lately.
If there is one thing that I have learned it is this:
When life is constantly putting a particular issue IN MY FACE...
Then that is the exact issue I need to FACE.
SO… today, I am going to face this issue of
NEGATIVE PEOPLE with bad attitudes, HEAD ON.
I am going to call these monsters out of my closet and let them know that they have been exposed and can now move on.
I hope you have fun and enjoy the Halloween twist on this difficult subject.
I want to start with a quote from Guy Finlay:
“Hell is the compulsive pursuit of pleasure, powers, and possessions; it is keeping the company of those who care for nothing higher than themselves, who are driven to seek one distraction after another in the vain hope of protecting themselves from the uncertainty of Life’s transfiguring touch.”
Doesn’t that sound like a nightmare?
I know when I read that quote it scared me to death.
The reason that it scared me was probably because I could relate to it.
I used to be THAT person. Living in that Hell.
So today, I would love to have us all join together and Recognize and Reject the Monster known as…
So that when Halloween arrives, we can tell the difference between the dressed up spooks and the real life spooks that seek to destroy your happiness.
I honestly believe that every person alive has at one time or another been sadly deceived by someone they thought they could trust. (and at times that person was themselves.)
Negative personalities are dangerous for the unsuspecting people that they encounter.
Many people have unknowingly abandoned themselves in a vain attempt to please or assist a negative personality in exchange for the strong sense of self that these type of people can give you.
The presence of such negative attitudes and energy that they provide can be just as addictive as heroine as it courses through them.
These poor souls don’t even realize that the sudden sense of security that they feel when they begin to trust and depend on the negative person is actually coming from the influence that they bring into the relationship that is creating the illusion that it is
“Us against the World”.
But this form of emotional dependence can infect the unwitting souls and drag them down to their level.
Those of us who aspire to the Light need to recognize these negative personalities and reject their poisonous expressions.
Any of you that have followed me for any amount of time will know that I am a LIST PERSON…
I love to make lists that I can check off at the end of the day to help me feel that I am on track and doing well.
Sometimes I will make a list at the end of the day and pretend that I made it in the morning just so I can feel the RUSH of completing a list.
Okay…so I was just kidding on that last sentence, but seriously…I am a LIST PERSON. 🙂
So here is a list of five different “Negative SPOOKS” that you need to be aware of if you are ever going to stand a chance of stopping them from infecting you.
Your detection and rejection of them depends upon your awareness of their presence and your refusal to take part in the negativity they live to spread.
These “Emotional Vampires” must use their fellow human beings as their physical instruments, because without them they have neither sound nor voice.
These negative people live to drag up old painful events and then revel in the anger, resentment, or bitterness that such unhappy memories must hold in the fabric of their cloth.
Stay away from any inclination, in others or in yourself, that wants you to dive into some suffering over what happened in any yesterday.
Never consent to stoop to resentment.
#2: The dirt throwers:
Certain low and malicious people love to pull themselves up by pulling others down.
They love to gossip, criticize, judge or denigrate anyone who ever had the misfortune of spending time with them.
The only loyalty these vicious back biters have is to their own pain that they feed by involving everyone they can in their dirt throwing.
The Dirt Throwers!
#3:The Doom and Gloomers:
These fear-monger types are forever trying to sell their death and imminent destruction theories to anyone unaware enough to lend them an ear.
They are Chicken Little personalities who get their kicks crying “The sky is falling,” and then wait to see if you will fall with them into the pit of the despair that drives their pitiful existence.
Just say “NO!” to them and leave them to their own destructive dreams.
#4: The mud dwellers:
This is a group of mired people that attempt to make music out of their low vibrations. But their music is hollow and empty, so they seek out a person who is energetic and playful so that they can use them as an instrument to play out their endless dark music.
They are Easily recognizable, these unfortunate people serve up dreadful mental pictures, or deliberately tell offensive jokes, for the sake of the unnatural reactions they produce.
Ignore these messed-up spirits.
Let them take their mud-making elsewhere.
#5: The life-haters:
This group of individuals like to perpetuate their hold on others by resisting almost every gift that life offers.
They want us to listen to their complaints,
Agree with their envy,
And accept their rejection of life when anything or anyone fails to please them any longer.
The trick to handle these types is to infuse them with your happiness and joy!
Now that we have called these monsters out, lets band together and unite in our effort to eliminate them from our own lives.
Let’s teach our children to recognize them when they meet them so that they too, will be prepared to walk away from this type of negativity.
Remember that these chronically conflicted personalities NEED us to join in their party or they can’t spread their poison!
This circle of negative people need our permission to intrude into our lives so that they can continue to thrive.
Without us they have no strength.
Our real inner work is to sweep clean the places in ourselves where such creatures reside.
Remember: We are all vulnerable to these negative personalities but they have no entrance into our lives unless we have left the door open.
But please remember that whatever has been left open in our minds can be closed consciously, if we so choose.
