It's About You
Whatever gets you upset or
angry or sad or feeling helpless or your
feelings are hurt it's not because of the other person. It's about you
being triggered by the words or behavior or emotions of that other person.
All your behavior is a product of your past and so is theirs.
I work with this concept daily helping patients family and friends to
separate themselves from the bondage of their childhood and identify the
trigger for their own behavior.
When someone spoke to me about road rage I couldn't help wonder what might
have happened to her as a child that she was willing to chase after someone
in her car possibly putting herself in harms way just to make a point.
What makes us think we have the right to spue our negative pollution out
into the environment when we don't even know what the reason is that someone
behaved the way they did.
What might be driving that person to this behavior that is now bothering me
so much and why do I want to step into that energy anyway.
There can be physical relationships related to emotional states that are
just as serious.
A patient had an experience lately with his right knee. He came in
limping and dragging his right foot. I examined the knee and it was hot,
swollen and very sensitive to touch. We determined that this problem was
related to an emotional component and specifically to the liver and the
The Chinese have taught for over 5000 years that every organ is related to a
group of emotions to muscles and also to the spine as well as the
Back to the patient's knee. The treatment procedure revealed that he was
stressing over a project given to him to work on by upper management.
Every time the guy came around to check on his progress he got up tight and
irritated. We then went back into his life to locate the origin of this kind
of emotion and reaction.
He remembered at eight years old
an event that happened frequently, His father was a mechanic and he an
aspiring physicist. His father would yell something like hand me the socket
wrench but not knowing what that was he would hand him something and his
father would yell at him and call him stupid. Now do you see the
connection? His boss was just the trigger and the source of his
resentment was pain from his childhood. Well now his boss is off the hook
I have a Chiropractic mentor, Dr. George Goodheart, founder of a great body
of work known as Applied Kinesiology who says:
"When you practice from intent instead of by accident it sets you on
fire and people come from miles around to watch you burn."
Oprah Winfrey is a good example of this phenomenon, but so is Osama Bin
Be on intention to clean up your speaking, your actions, your behavior so
you are not a negative source for people to come from miles around to watch
burn. When someone makes an error or is even obnoxious send them a healing
thought. Bless you!! I wish for you a successful and fulfilling day. Or as I
said the other day when someone honked at me - You're right I shouldn't have
done that forgive me, and I wish you a better day starting now.
We can become programmed from the information media and plugged in daily to
an overwhelming barrage of negativity and focus on moral issues that have
nothing to do with what we are up to in life.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change'
It's a choice we make to focus on the negativity or to focus on the
beauty, the what _IS_ working. The *WHO *we do love. The *WHAT *makes us
