“Hmmm,” I said. “You were pretty mad all afternoon yesterday. Ask your body if that’s why you don’t feel well today.” She got quiet, closed her eyes and went within for a moment. She opened her tear-filled eyes and nodded her head yes. “Now ask your body what it needs to release this negative energy that’s making you feel so bad.” “A warm bath,” she answered.
I finished what I was doing and ran a soothing bath for her. The day before she was mad because she had to leave an event much earlier than she had expected that my husband took her to.
It was unusual for Mecca to remain disturbed for so long. One of the things I admire about her is her ability to let go of things and move on. She’s usually back to her cheerful self within minutes. This time however, she was grumpy all afternoon. She even had to take a nap because she tired herself out, and was still a bit grumpy when she woke up.
We’ve been discussing Universal Principles with Mecca for years and take every opportunity to bring them into a conversation.
So we talked about the Laws of Mentalism and Vibration. How everything starts with a thought. She was mad about leaving the museum and was mad at her dad and was grumpy all afternoon. All the negativity hurt her body and manifested as a headache and stomach ache. Because this all happened so quickly, we were able to link it together. Had she gotten sick a couple of days later, we would have forgotten about her getting mad and lowering her vibration so much.
I find these teaching moments move us all forward in our spiritual evolution. This was a great reminder that I cannot have sick thoughts and a healthy body. My lingering anger and frustration at anybody only hurts myself. I saw this clearly with Mecca and will remember it for myself the next time I get upset. I’m not saying that one shouldn’t get mad. But what I have a tendency to do is to hold onto the anger far longer than necessary or required. In Mecca’s case, she had fully expressed herself about her disappointment and upset; we had acknowledged her; but then she continued to be mad for a few hours. I believe that’s what hurt her body—seething in the upset.
I wish I had learned this stuff when I was a kid. It would have saved me years of suffering. My intention is for Mecca to own her power in creating all of her life, the good and the unpleasant. I feel the more she learns this now, the clearer (and happier) she will be in her life! I love her dearly and hate to see her suffer, but I cannot protect her from the consequences of her own thoughts, actions and behaviors.
