-Do not write off your experience as invalid just because it is unique. Only by being removed from society can you truly see it objectively. The clearest view is always from the outside.
-You will be tested. At least once a day. Even on your best days. There will be days where you will want to throw up your hands and give up. You will say “they will never understand, so why am I even trying? This is not my job. It was a problem before me, and it will be a problem after me. Nothing I will do will actually make a difference.” You are wrong. We cannot understand the path of events that lead to change, but we can know that they are greater than we could ever imagine. We will not be able to see the ripples of motion that we created until we are no longer in these bodies, living these lives. It is our job to listen to the voices that guide us, those pangs deep in your chest. Your intuition, if you will. Whatever makes you radiate in your core, whatever you feel ignite a spark in you in places you didn’t even know you had in you- do those things. Those are the things that will create change. Those are the things that make a difference.
-Understand that you have an energy. It remains constant as long as your sole inhabits your body. It can change depending on your mood, and on the health of your soul, but it grows every time that you acknowledge it. We feel energy beginning early- it’s how you know someone is looking at you without having to turn around and see their eyes. Before we physically see, we feel the shift of energy in the universe.
-Use your energy for good. Spend time carefully crafting your energy and presence in the world. Exude not only what you want people to perceive, but also what you want to find you. If you radiate positivity, it will find you. Not only will it find you, but if will easier for you to find when you need it.
-Unfortunately, the same is true of negative energy. Be aware of this. Expel your negative energy in healthy ways that do not harm any other living creatures or beings. In this way you can remain pure, but do not bring any negative karma into your life. This is the only way to truly expel negative energy and be rid of it. Any other option will only temporarily transfer the negativity. But do not be fooled, it will find you again.
-Approach each situation empty of your own thoughts, bias, and experience. Listen to people. Not just their words, but their energy, their expression, and their passion. These will often tell you more than words could ever attempt to. People know when you are really listening to them.
-And the last thing- you are more powerful than you will ever give yourself credit for. You deserve love and happiness. You are not a culmination of bad things that have happened to you. You are a warrior that has fought to be where you are, and you have the scars to prove it.
my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate
