Swearing Can Be Good For The Soul!
So, it’s been an intense time. People have been feeling stressed, and there’s been all manner of snafus in communications. I’ve heard from so many people that they have no idea why so much seems to be piling up on them all at once. Sometimes, you just want to throw your hands up at the Universe and yell, “what the f&*k!”
I felt like that too. Which is precisely why I wrote my latest post, WTF is going on this month. Mind you, I didn’t curse at anyone, nor did I direct any negativity at any person. I actually didn’t even swear, unless you count acronyms. (Really, no toddlers innocent ears were harmed in that post).
I felt really good about sharing with people that they weren’t alone in their feelings. I find that SO helpful, when you’re going through something difficult emotionally to know YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You are never alone!
WTF was THE best way of describing the energy. Truly. And yet, the night that I had the post scheduled, there was a little part of me that said people were going to be offended. I’m a spiritual teacher, I channel angels and spirit guides. There are expectations of me. Not everyone is into that kind of humor (really, I did find it funny myself.) So I said, screw it! If people didn’t like me for WHO I AM, I won’t try to conform to their expectations of me.
Of course, then next day, I got complaints from people saying they thought better of me. Ironically, some people even cursed at me. (Hello, irony!) And you know what? I felt great!
I Like To Drop The F Bomb
I’m from the Bronx. #Streetcred. It feels good sometimes to let off some steam by swearing. Not AT people, just diffused in sentences to release tension. It’s part of who I am. I love angels, and channel beings of light and that doesn’t mean I need to walk around with a halo over my head. (Although, I DO love unicorns!).
In fact, one of the BIGGEST lessons the angels and guides have taught me is that if you try to be perfect for other people, you can’t be yourself. If you spend your energy trying to live up to other people’s expectations, not only will some people dislike you anyway, you’re actually rejecting YOURSELF, and that’s the biggest tragedy.
Angels Don’t Want You To Be Nice All The Time
Archangel Michael carries a sword. He slays demons – he doesn’t kindly escort them to the door. He sprays a can of whoop-ass on them. He certainly isn’t concerned about being liked. Angels are here to empower us. Being empowered requires you to have healthy boundaries. It requires you to be true to yourself, and have the courage and confidence to bring your unique light into the world regardless of what people think. In a world of darkness YOU need to be the one to lead the pack. That requires you being YOURSELF without the need for approval.
So when you’re making a decision about something and you’re wondering how others will react to you – you can redirect that energy. In that moment, you have the opportunity to ask yourself what’s right for YOU. And if someone else doesn’t like you because of it, they will leave your life. And that’s a good thing. You’re just making room for someone who loves you more.
Remember that, earth angel. Be yourself no matter what. The only person you need to please is yourself.
