The Inner Voice

by Marilyn Gelfand

I have often used the expression, our energy can be a beacon of light, when we are feeling connected to the Universe/God and have kept our energy calm. The idea is that we can keep our own energy at peace through our de-sire to cleanse and protect ourselves.  We become a lighthouse with a strong energy emitting from us that does not get turned off, to the best of our ability, by the circumstances that surround us. When we are this lighthouse, we try to keep the peace within and radiate our own beautiful feelings both within ourselves and surrounding us. It does feel good to be at peace and very alive as the strong energy flows through.

We do not have to worry about who we attract. One of my friends who recently left a bad relationship said she is almost afraid to be a positive energy because someone may think she is open and vulnerable. What is so important to remember is that people perceive us in their own value system and want different things from people.  My cousin said when he was young he was always attracted to neurotic women because he liked the intense crazy energy. Some people are looking for people to save, people to use, people to dominate, people to lead, etc. Not everyone wants an in balance person looking for an equal relationship. The point is that if our energy does not attract certain people it is fine because there was no match of purpose there.  There is no need to feel rejected or abandoned, but rather glad that those who are not good for me are not attracted to me. She now wants a good relationship with someone who believes in being supportive, but separate and equal. They come together in the spirit of fun. This pertains to all of our relationships with friends as well.

It is good to feel comfortable in our own skin. If we can be ourselves at peace, we can allow others to come and go and allow those with whom we are comfortable to get closer to us. We don’t have to feel badly if others do not appreciate our own way of being or attraction, but rather rejoice.
