The CURRENCY I work with and understand
is emotions, time,
meals cooked, tears on my shoulders,
and ears full of ventings about
whatever may ail you or your mind at the moment.
The world does not understand this particular type of currency, although I think it should.
This is what I'm working on right now (the image/quote), no matter how much resistance other people feel to me FINALLY coming into my own and discovering my personal power (not to mention at the same time healing from all manner of emotional and physical ailments and issues all at once). It's amazing how much your relationships can change when you begin to REALLY take care of yourself and follow your own path. Certain people - even those whom you thought were your "ultimate" support system - may not understand and might react with fear (no matter how good what you're doing is for you). DON'T LET THAT STOP YOU.
If you find yourself working toward something amazing that YOU (not anybody else... for just a minute, fuck 'em all and focus on YOU, you beautiful empathic dreamer, you!) believe in and know is right, then it may be time to deliberately ignore those people and stay focused on what you're doing and working toward (and yes, they may claim to believe in you right up to the very point when you REALLY need it and then stop suddenly because they cannot see or understand the bigger picture yet and you may not be moving at the speed THEY think is appropriate, even though they have no clue what you're even working on).
When certain people insist on distracting you with fear-based arguments and "concerns," it serves no other purpose but to give those people control over your life, and if you allow them to take that control, you are giving up your power. Then you can pretty much forget about accomplishing anything because you'll be too busy worrying about what those people think to get anything done.
STOP! Ignore their negativity, recognize that they don't know what they don't know, and move on. Anything they do or say beyond that (especially if they call you names, tell you that you should have stayed with your ex who almost killed you, and so on) is THEIR issue AS AN ETERNAL SOUL, not yours. Some of us are trying to purge the dark stains that fear and hatred created for our eternal selves, while others are scared of doing so and will do and say whatever it takes to keep you at their level of consciousness.
Remember that there ARE more important things than money, one of them being your eternal energy; your soul; your spirit. I KNOW that it is better to live in a place of love rather than fear, and that is exactly what I am doing all of this inner work for. MY SOUL.
I hope this resonates with and helps someone who may need it right now <3. Namaste.
