Thrown Under The Bus


As I taught yoga, my client barked back at me, blaming ME for the blast of heat coming in through the windows on a 90 degree day. She wanted it cold and viciously yelled at me as if it were all my fault.

Do you have people in your life who blame you for things that are out of your control? Do they pull the “victim card”, blaming you, society or the world at large?

Well, Ester Hicks succinctly discusses this conundrum of people who are a little (or a lot) out of alignment and calls them "pinched off from Source". In other words they are unplugged from God.

People tuned into their Higher Power don't need to put others down, yell, shame, complain, judge or gossip. They know better.

When you are aligned with source, God or whatever you choose to call it, you feel nothing but a connection with all things. You don't feel the need to throw anyone under the bus. When on the right tracks, you uplift, empower, enrich, empathize, console and nurture. 

Remember, when you have one finger pointing at someone else, three fingers are pointing back at you. Go ahead. Try it. It’s always best in most situations to put down the magnifying glass and pick up the mirror. 

When you feel the joy of living, you know it inside. When you are feeling anything but good (God) it's time to get your train back on the tracks and find a way to fill yourself up spiritually, so the nastiness doesn't contaminate you and those around you.

When clients, friends or family are being anything but kind, I say to myself, “they are unplugged”, and remind myself to never take anything personally. Ultimately I know that hurt people, hurt people. Let’s be good to one another.
