Positvie Energy....A dialogue


"Listen to me...as you would if I were talking to myself. I am admitting to you my inmost thoughts, and am having it out with myself, merely making us of you as a pretext."
... Seneca the Younger

I am holding onto and sending out positive energy to myself and my husband....Right now, it is the one thing that I can do....If you know of anyone who is in need of energy or has someone in their life in need of it...please send as much as you can...perhaps you can lend an ear...I find that people use to listen well..because it was the polite thing to do...but these days in the light of internet and every thing moving so fast...people seem to busy to listen...they like to give you advice rather than just lend an ear....Causing the talker to become frustrated...I am one who holds things in...takes things personally...The truth of the matter is....that no matter what the situation is...we do not have someone else's life experiences...we do not have the answers for someone else...we cannot make someone else do what we believe should be done....Our energy needs to go elsewhere....So...my finding is the best thing one can do is to just listen...no helpful comments...no advice....no stories about when the same thing happened to you or your aunt or your uncle....Be patient...Let the talker just tell you what it is that they need to....Be willing to hold their hand...give them a hug...offer them support...and send them healing and peaceful thoughts ...For me, knowing that someone is listening gives me tremendous freedom to get my fears out....and allows me at this moment to think something through...It is so much different right now than my daily affirmations have been over the past several years....It is a relief of sorts...and I am learning about myself and what is going on for me and my husband...
Artfully Yours,
Pattie
