Do you ever feel you’re taking on other people’s emotions? Do you notice someone close to you who’s angry or sad around you, and then you find yourself really angry or sad too?
And did you ask to receive these emotions? And are there a few processes we can learn to block ourselves naturally from taking on other people’s emotions?
This last few weeks has been an astrological rollercoaster and we are not in the clear yet. News of Robin Williams, cloudy days, interesting star patterns... We're now being asked to reconnect with our sense of Peace, so we're still in action "Go-Time", bringing awareness to who we truly are.
Come enjoy a peaceful Holy Tuesday evening sitting at 6:30pm PST where we’ll enjoy a chapter on ‘empathy’ called “Chameleon: Selflessness”, by Doug Kraft in his book, “Buddha’s Map”, by Blue Dolphin Publishing.
This past week I’ve certainly noticed a deepening in myself, uncovering old unconscious patterns of ignorance and old unconscious patterns of experiencing someone else’s emotional triggers which then trigger my own emotions, and the interesting story that follows.
Well, listen, it’s not my stuff, and it’s not your stuff. So let’s learn a little about how this works using the Buddha’s teachings and from our emotional bodies to build our toolbox and our mental strength to consciously remain in our own bodies, owning our own stuff- and not taking on anyone else’s.
Blessings to you all and may you have a fruitful week,
When: Tues, Aug 26th, 2014
Time: evening, 6:27pm PST to 7:45pm PST
