“What other people think of me is none of my business. One of the highest places you can get to is being independent of the good opinions of other people.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer
Light Workers, Psychics, Diviners, Healers, Shaman, Kahuna, Wiccans, Pagans, Druids…no matter where it is that you operate from as any of these people, and no matter what it is that you were raised to believe, not one of us has been raised to be free of the opinions of other people, and really, that is a whole LOT of the issue that a whole lot of people employed in the realms find as being a reality which is not that easy to deal with.
The Good Opinion of Other People
For the most part, people have opinions not only because they have them, but, some of them actually have our very best interest at heart.
Then there are the rest of them, the sort who like to call us Devil Worshipers, Heathens, Occultists (which, actually is the truth), and anything that would be thought as being a means by which anyone who is employed in the realms would be manipulated by fear, and fear that does not belong to us. In fact, that fear I have found through a lifetime’s worth of actual researching the best group of lab subjects I can find – the very family in which I was raised.
The good opinion of other people is not something that we should be worried about, really, because really, they, the most of them, are not even speaking or citing their own truth, and that they are not able to think of a means by which they will be who they are in the spiritual sense and still manage to listen to what their own belief’s text says that they need to do, other than scaring people into the idea that they, by virtue of the guy up front and behind the pulpit, have the truth and the only truth, and that truth, as I am sure many of you already know, does not come close to what and who we are.
What and who we are
We are what we are at the time of our conception. Who we are is subject to change due to the fact that we all have life lessons to learn. In my case, it is this that you are reading today that was the harshest lesson of all, and the lesson by which I have been girded in strength and in that stand alone manner about which I say much.
In order for any person employed in the realms to be effective in their doings, they MUST be free of the opinions about them that other people have. When it is that an entire population of people, for generations, have been taught to fear rather than to inquire, this breeds within the populace an “Us versus them” energy. This is not something that was not understood back in the ancient Roman days, and this was not something that was not understood when our own American ancestors took humans and turned them into slaves, and this is not something that, for the most part, all humans are not able to do.
Being able to manipulate people so as to serve one’s own needs is as old as the first human being. Being able to do our job without manipulating anyone to believe what it is that we are saying is a challenge if we were, at one time, one of those people who were told, rather than shown, how to judge, even if that judgment was taught to us through others within that energy of beliefs of others by our being judged by them.
Being judged by others tells us that that which others are not inclined to learn, are not inclined to better understand through questioning a person (albeit in a nice manner), are not inclined to accept, that those others are living in a fear.
They are scared, no lie, to find out that what they have been believing for a long time is somehow not the thing that someone else will believe, and that someone else does not believe it makes the someone else a (gulp…I have been called this one too many times….) ‘devil worshiper.’
They are scared that maybe they, themselves, might be swayed by our truth, might have to eat crow because for a long time, they were the very ones who were out in the world telling people all kinds of scary stories about people like you and me.
Judgment of others = AFRAID of something
Think back to that time when you were a kid and you believed in Santa and then your pals started not believing. You wanted to believe, so you did. Then one day, you caught your parents in their most Santa possible way, and suddenly, it was not that your friends were correct, but that they were so judgmental in the way that they told you that you were being stupid cause you believed in Santa.
It is the same way in terms of people of certain religious beliefs that the best method of getting people to believe what is their belief is through bullying tactics.
It is not that these people like to bully, but rather and only that this is the way that they have been shown, been taught, believe is the right and the only way to make certain that what they are choosing to believe and to follow is the only real and only one correct and true way and system.
They have been told that their activities are right and good, and that when they are out and about, enforcing their own beliefs and helping elevate the congregational numbers, that sometimes it is with the very hand of their god that they will have to proverbially thump these unsuspecting people in the head with their doctrine.
Then, the day comes when they happen upon someone like me.
Let me get this one thing very clearly understood, right now, and that is that if you feel like you have to force anyone to believe, to follow, to do anything that you want them to do and you have to use fear or other terribly ugly things in order to make that happen, not even for you but for a collective of “you,” you are wrong.
This is something that I have always believed – a person will grow into and become who and what they are supposed to, and no other human being can change that.
When those who are “of the church” happen upon me specifically, it is natural for them to remind me who my parents are, natural for them to want to try to save me, natural for them to not think before they speak, and natural for them to assume that because I no longer bow to their god, that I have to be, must be, AM a devil worshiper, and all because of the fact that I am no longer able to believe in something that I never really believed in to begin with.
Dealing with people who are arrogant is part of our purpose, my dear fellow weirdos. Dealing with people who want to help you feel like you owe them an explanation regarding who you are and what you do is really and truly not something that you HAVE to believe or to do. You do not HAVE to tell them anything that you do not want them to know, and you, more than anything else, do not have to be guided by what anyone else’s thoughts or opinion about you or anyone else is.
The Hard Part
Haha ! I bet you thought that just knowing these sorts of people exist and believing that they exist, even if they don’t exist in your life at a constant, was the hard part. It isn’t.
You see, the most important person who we, as professionals in the realms, have to heal, have to deal with, have to teach, if our very selves. Just because we were taught another way does not mean that we are not meant to teach ourselves how to deal with having been manipulated as we’d been in the past.
You have to be able to know what is your own truth and you have to believe that truth, because it is the truth that you, yourself, created through lots of hardships and lots of tears and lots of people being awful to you, and of course, the other side of all of that awfulness you also learned a whole lot from the people who have loved you unconditionally. The Goddess does not ever give us one energy without also giving us the corresponding energy, even though we have to actually go through what we have to go through in order to learn what we are supposed to learn.
You have to be able to know what it is that others like and love about you, because without knowing those things, you cannot know anyone else and you cannot, because you will be bothered by the symbols in your own mind that are telling you these very things, discern what is your energy and what may be someone else’s who you share a particular kind of closeness with, no matter what that closeness may be about.
You have to be able to let go of what it is that you want to still believe is good for others and turn the attention to yourself, and ask, without being shy, without worrying about how you might hurt you, what it is that you are not able to face in regards to what other people say about you. You cannot remain in the energy that is someone else’s thought about you, make it the truth for you, and hope that you will be able to be all the light worker that you are meant to be.
You must be able to put aside your opinion of their opinion, be able to take it apart, word by word, energetic “zap” by energetic “zap,” accept what it is that you like that is given by others, and more, not bother with what is not the truth, and what is no longer YOUR specific truth.
The opinions of other people are valuable when we make them that way, not because they are the people whose mouths are the biggest, voices the shrillest, opinions are the strongest. Those descriptors are useless if you, yourself, do not make them YOUR truth…
Happy Birthday, Guys !!
