Speaking to a dear friend this morning, I thought this might be a good place to help shine some positive light :-) .
Let’s say you are in a situation where you are around a lot of negativity. It can be really hard not to let that negativity venture over onto you. It’s like a virus spread with emotions, actions and all too often terrible words. You have to find the joy of each moment for you and distance yourself from what is theirs.
Remind yourself that the other person’s thoughts, emotions, actions, words and energy are theirs and not your own. Just as smiles, yawning and happiness is contagious.. so is negativity, especially when exposed to it often. You just have to know what’s theirs is NOT yours. You don’t want it… you don’t need it and you are not what they are!
Be you… stay positive and excuse yourself from the negativity of others.
Something else that helps me… I keep a quartz crystal on my desk or in my office…. it takes on the energy of others and keeps it away from me.. it helps neutralize my space and makes me feel all the better when negative crap is going on all around me.
