Happy Fall Everyone! I recently had an Akashic Record reading for myself and in it we discussed how to best get along with people during this time of heightened emotions.   One of the most obvious choices is to avoid subjects that have a big charge. I don’t always advocate for avoiding tough issues but at this point in time it seems in the best interest of relationships to totally avoid talking about sensitive issues.   But what also came out in the reading is to accept people for where they are. Whatever their beliefs. Each person has created a world of their own where their beliefs are their security and the container in which they live. To try to dismantle this for someone will throw them into a panic or worse and cause an upheaval that you don’t want to be responsible for.   As the Reader pointed out, we each have our own preferences. Her example was that person A might prefer chocolate ice cream and person B might prefer vanilla. No amount of pleading, cajoling, manipulating, bargaining, belittling, complaining about or whining from person A will change the preference person B will have for vanilla. B will insist that vanilla is best no matter what A says or does. Trying to manipulate another person is just plain wrong. There is nothing wrong with either choice, is there. Both choices are right for A and B. But A’s choice is not right for B and vice versa.   Seems simple enough but when we get our emotions into it, these opinions become more important than the persons involved. Is it worth loosing a beloved relationship over “east is east, and west is west and never the twain shall meet”? After all, in the big picture, does it really matter that Person A prefers chocolate and person B vanilla?   Our discussion in the Records was such that allowing each person to have their own free will is an act of love. We honor their free will as we recognize that each person is on his or her own unique path and that that path is a culmination of the choices they make with their free will. Honoring that in another is allowing them to move up or down the ladder of consciousness and no matter how much we think we know better, allowing each person the dignity of their choices is a supreme act of love as long as they are not making choices that could endanger themselves or others. Trying to interfere with their choices is an act of manipulation and control and does not come from love but from fear.   That said, we also are allowed OUR own choices and free will and having others trying to tell us we are wrong, or crazy, or out of line is their reaction from a fear based belief and often an act they see as trying to “save” us. While we can’t control their thoughts or their reactions towards us, we CAN control OUR reactions. Someone one described this to me as allowing the arrows to pass by us, simply by not responding or not reacting. This defuses the situation for when you don’t engage, there is nothing for them to struggle or fight against. If you drop out and change the dance steps, there is no dance.   I know this is easier said than done as emotions are at a peak right now. But give it a try. Take the path of letting those arrows zoom by you, of not engaging with a battle of opinions, as an act of supreme love by allowing your friends and loved ones to have their own opinions. It will save you a lot of energy and heartache and will quite possibly preserve the relationships that are important to you.

For something a little lighter, take a look at the fashion colors for spring 2021.

The colors of love could be any of these depending on how you use them. I recommend pink for unifying group energies and to create an atmosphere of unconditional love in a space. Red for passionate love. Green for infusing heart energy into an environment, and purple for a more spiritual type of love. Magenta is love of beauty and can be used to infuse “love from above” and to heal the lack of nurturing and “Mother love”. http://www.lifepotentials.net/shop/
