Clearing your life to move forward magickally

Good Evening,

I think many of us wish to eliminate things in our lives that no longer serve us, so that we may better live our lives.  But the energy by which we do this can hinder us or help us along. What do I mean?

Do you hold grudges? Keeping the anger, resentment and negative emotions directed towards a person or event would be holding onto that energy and allowing it to work against you, slowly and at times imperceptibly wearing you down,  making you tighten up, becoming less open, loving, accepting and making you more distrustful, bitter, jaded and hard.

Now, this doesn't mean we need to forgive and forget. Not at all. Somethings can't be forgiven, instead I accept them. Now, I don't mean acceptance as condoning something, but accept that they have happened, put them side and move on.  especially when what has happened can't be changed in anyway by you. remember, we can only change ourselves and many times we can only change our next response to a situation.

It's not necessarily a good thing to forget either, lest you wish to set yourself up for similar disappointments and heartaches down the road. By all means use the experiences or dealing with certain people to teach you. Then don't forget the lesson. Just put aside the anger, the hatred if there was any, the disappointment and sadness.  Take the lesson and allow it to help you make other choices in your life.

This goes for people also. Some people, frankly, are not healthy to have in your life. Period. Whether they are blood relatives or not. Keeping them either on the peripheral or removing them completely from your life may be a healthy choice for you to make.  But I never think of removing someone from my life as a failure on my part, but a success!  As I grow older I know who and what I wish to spend my life on and I refuse to waste precious time and energy on those who are not healthy for me to be around. We are not meant to get along with everyone. Some people have agendas that for us are unhealthy to be a part of. By not having them in my life, I am happier, more whole and my life is much more they way I want it to be. 

But, does it take a bit of courage and strength to initiate a removal of a person or circumstance from your life? You betcha! And no one will do it for you, it's up to you.  Magickally you can use black candles to help eliminate the negative energies from your life, which may include a person's specific energies. We also use smudge sticks to clear an area, building, room or office of harmful, negative energies but ultimately the removal of yourself from a harmful situation or the removal of a harmful person from your life will come down to you. 

Peace and Happiness
