Ahh... the month of October. The month of the scorpion. It's a time that reminds me that there is indeed a negative side. It does truly exist. Some call it the Devil, Satan, evil, darkness and so forth. There are many names for the negative side. And lest we forget that it exists, it will pop up to remind us that it is still very much alive. It will pop up at our very weakest moments. It waits and it waits for the perfect opportunity to cause upheaval, embarrass us, create mischief, and possibly even destroy everything we care about.
The negative side will try it's very best to get us upset. It will focus all of it's energy on our weaknesses. If we have a tendency to be fearful, it will try to give us something to fear. If we have a jealous streak, it will give us something to be jealous about. Vengeful, hateful, angry, depressed... addicted. You get the point? So when dealing with the negative side, we must understand our weaknesses. We must understand who we are, deeply within. When we understand who we are at the core of our very being, the negative side becomes a joke. Something to laugh at. We'll say, “Oh, it's just that negative side again trying to create chaos.” You see, when we understand the very nature of ourselves and the very nature of the negative side, it can no longer harm us. It loses it's power.
You see.... I'm not afraid of the negative side. It's a part of me. It's a part of you. It's a part of everyone on this planet. It's not something to be afraid or fearful of. It's not something to direct anger at. When we take on these emotions we actually become the negative side ourselves. That's when the negative side really gets its way. That's when it gains its power. We really need to have a greater understanding of the negative side if we are to subdue it. The negative side is an energy... a frequency. It's a low vibrational frequency that we are all capable of tapping into. The trick is to not allow ourselves to vibrate on that frequency. Then the negative side is unable to harm us. Because in reality...we are in control of the negative side. We control it when we gain control over our own thoughts and emotions. Indeed, once we come to an understanding of how much control we actually have over our own thoughts, actions and words...well, then the negative side loses it's power.
It loses power, but it never leaves us completely. You see, we live in a world of duality. We can't have good without the bad. With positivity comes negativity. With happiness comes sadness. The trick is to appreciate this duality. The trick is to maintain balance even when the negative side rears it's ugly face. Remember, the negative side will always be waiting to test you. It's how you react that makes all the difference! You are very capable... Free your mind from the darkness. Peace and Blessings.
