Boundaries; blocking, deleting, and social networking.
As I am navigating this new online world where people are using technology in fascinating innovative progressive ways to recreate their lives, change the world, and communities -I am reflecting on the importance of good boundaries! I have found this wonderful online community of fellow starseeds, empaths,psychics,mediums, astrologers, lightworkers, shamans, and other seekers newly on the path and it’s been amazing!
My experience thus far has been ;Validating! Fun,welcoming, inspiring and extremely comforting! I think I am part of about 20 groups and I am still figuring out which groups I really resonate with. I have only been an active member on Facebook since I think November 2014, but the more involved I get the more involved I want to be! It’s been very exciting to meet other people with all my weird tics, strange beliefs and outlooks but occasionally you do encounter friction and have to have great boundaries like you do in person, but how do you do that?
I have to say I love the delete and block button! I also turn off private messages and monitor what gets posted on my timeline. I love being able to co-create my reality and say yes or no to people, lessons, or personalities I just don’t jibe with. The Celestine Prophecy identifies and explains this well and coined the term “control drama” to identify these unconscious power struggles we get involved with. It’s so much easier to identify a control drama online than in person. Control dramas are the unconscious patterns and behaviors and little ” dramas” that people repeatedly play out with each other to unconsciously steal energy from others. It doesn’t mean they are bad people. We could call them “energy vampires” but they are really people that don’t know how to love themselves, and/or don’t know who they are and seek energy or attention in ways that are indirect. They could also be lost and in pain looking for an answer or a person to heal or rescue them. They can be people that need to be right about everything and know everything. Maybe their just angry and looking for someone to pick on and berate. It can make them seem excessively needy, drama, negative or plain annoying!
I am a healer and helper I am naturally drawn to whoever needs my love but I love owning my space even online. It’s a way to make sure I love the God within myself, this Is a new sense of freedom. I don’t feel I need to engage every single person that wants my attention, or rescue them, or save them. In fact if I don’t jibe with a person I don’t feel they were meant to be in my life I just don’t engage. If we are not in sync and if they are aggressive or try to intimidate me I just hit delete or block and do my best to not rescue, react, or feel guilty.
As Shelley M Kekuna once said to me ,”Some lessons keep you on the student path, and some lessons put you on the master path. I am recreating my life and love owning my energy where it goes and what I am doing with it.
Life isn’t happening to me, it’s happening through me and I am making it happen! Disengage from the drama! If something feels weird or wrong disengage.
