Yesterday I had the wonderful experience of listening first-hand to a new, not-yet-published ebook by one of my wonderful mentors, Lisa Nichols. The part I came in on while she was recording the book was on relationships. Wow! I cannot recommend this book high enough from just that one chapter!
In thinking about relationships – and this is ALL relationships, not just romantic – I have had to do a lot of forgiveness and releasing in my lifetime. Forgiveness is something you do for yourself, not for the one being forgiven. Once you can grasp that, then you are on your way to a more peaceful, happy life. Our next book will be TIME Forgives and this is exactly what we will deal with. How to really forgive yourself and others. It involves a lot more than just saying the words.
Relationships are not easy. They should be but they’re not. It takes work on each person’s part to speak up for yourself and not get “lost” in the shadow of the other person. This has happened in past relationships with me. Somehow I became the one who dimmed my light, took the back seat and eventually lost my way because of it. In relationships you should build each other up. I remember shirts my ex-husband I had when we were first married – and I was still a teenager – which said “master” and “slave” which at the time was funny (no, we were not into S&M but it was just a joke of the era we were in). I always wanted to wear the master shirt but never did. I dimmed my light because I didn’t want to make waves or upset. I have many people who tell me these very words when talking about their relationships – “I don’t want to upset him/her, so I don’t say what I want to say.” Everything in me just wants to scream out, speak your truth! If you don’t speak up for yourself, who will? This is not only a throat chakra issue but also a solar plexus chakra issue! Find your self-worth. Get those chakras in balance and see what a difference it makes in your life! If you need help doing this, please do not hesitate to let me know. I love you! Hugz~Love
