Do you like to gossip???

Don't Gossip QuoteI’ve never been a person that enjoys or takes part in idle gossip about others and because of this find that almost no one brings these types of conversations to me, and even if they do, they do not receive the response they are desiring so will rarely follow-up with trying to speak to me again about such things, or anything for that matter.

For many, gossiping about others can become a way of life that is never producing anything good they are wanting in their lives. It’s completely appropriate to have our own opinions based on our own life experiences and how we’re wanting to live, but when we start to judge others harshly and make it our mission to get others onboard with negative, unkind speculation… .Well, that’s not that good.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a situation we are personally involved in or whether it’s someone we don’t know that well that we’re talking about, neither produces anything good. If this is a pastime we find ourselves enjoying, it’s a very good idea to ask ones self why we do it. From observing many people who love these sorts of interactions it’s not hard to see they enjoy being seen as one who knows what everyone else is up to and are usually the first to know about it and let everyone else know about it too!!! (How Boring!!!)

Gossiping often feels good to people because it makes them feel important, like they know something juicy that no one else knows. Passing this information on whether it’s true or not, (Who said gossiping had anything to do with the truth….What a joke!!!) Also feels great when they receive the wow reaction they were looking for and will search out as many people as possible to spread their gossip too, to keep their good feelings going. These types of people often congregate into like-minded groups that usually have a leader with all the others being followers, or more to the point spreaders of all things not nice!!!

Focusing on the not nice happenings in other people’s lives often keeps our thoughts busy so we don’t have to think or maybe deal with things in our own lives that we would do well to do some thinking about, but the worst thing about gossip is how it may effect the person being gossiped about…..Even if what is being said it true, which of course it hardly ever is, it’s very unkind and hurtful and I would say to anyone who likes to do this……STOP IT!!!

I imagine anyone reading this that has been gossiped about is smiling and agreeing whereas if you are one that likes to gossip, you might want to tell me to get lost….Hehehe!!! Fair call, no one likes to be told by someone else what to do.
For those that love to gossip, let me tell you something that I know that may possibly give you some food for thought. Even though we may feel good as we participate in these types of activities one thing is for sure, it is not possible to speak unkindly and cruelly about others without the Powerful Law of Attraction responding to the vibrations (thoughts and feelings) we are sending out and starts matching us up with like-minded people, places, and events.

What does that really mean……

~ We will encounter many situations that are gossip worthy.
~ We will come into contact with other like-minded people who like to gossip.
~ We will eventually bring, or more accurately said attract through our own focused thoughts we’re having about other people’s not nice or unwanted experiences, not nice and unwanted experiences into our own lives.

So just for effect, I’ll say it again….If you like to gossip, for gods sake make an effort to STOP IT!!!

And so we will!!!

Shake it off….You go girl!!!

I don’t usually like to talk about famous people, because many of the negative opinions people hold toward others that are well-known are based on gossip that whether it’s true or not, is not very nice. Although we all have our own opinions on what we hear and see, it’s not possible to truly know whats going on within someone else, so it’s a futile exercise to speculate about it, and it just doesn’t feel good to me to do it, so mostly I don’t do it!!
When making judgements about others, especially negative judgements, it can be helpful to consider the following;

~Unfortunately we live in a time where many find it entertaining to portray others in difficult, embarrassing, and compromising circumstances, which strongly indicates where a person generally is and who they’re currently being if they gain enjoyment from other people’s misfortune.
~Strong negative contemplation of those doing well in their chosen field and that have become well-known for it, often comes from being in a very resistant vibrational place of jealousy and judgement, jealousy of those that appear to have gained notoriety and success in some way….Maybe things we wish we had for ourselves???
~Outrageous allegations sell magazines and newspapers, and it would be rather naive to believe everything we hear or read, and in this digital age, pictures or video either. If one has a mind to portray someone in a certain way whether it be positive or negative, they will find a way to do it, whether it’s true or not!! (What’s the truth got to do with it???) Unless we observe something as it happens it’s all here-say, and even then it’s open to interpretation.
~One thing I’ll say about all of this is, if people knew what they were really doing when they’re speaking not nicely about others, they would not be doing it!!(Law of Attraction!!)

Back to the title, Shake it off is a new song by Taylor Swift, and the “You go girl,” you probably already know is not part of the song, that’s just me appreciating everything she’s saying in it!!!

Before this song came out, I wasn’t exactly a Taylor Swift fan because it wasn’t really my type of music with many resistant type lyrics about dating and boyfriend troubles, subjects that aren’t important to me and are far away from my life experience. But I have to say I’m loving this new song and have found a deeper understanding and respect for what must be a difficult road to navigate for someone so young.
Although I do love to see people doing well, I especially notice when young ones do well because it’s a very good indication they’ve managed to stay true to who they really are. Remaining true to oneself isn’t always easy when surrounded by others that are trying to guide us in a direction they feel is best based on their experiences and desires, but can often be in opposition to the internal guidance we are receiving based on our experiences and desires. It’s not that good guidance can’t be received from others apart from ourselves, it can, but it depends largely on the vibrational place the advice giver is coming from.

It feels like this song speaks to the truth that people are going to say and do whatever they like for their own reasons which is far more of an indication about who they are rather than who they’re talking about is, and the best thing we can do is to know that and just “shake it off” so to speak, and not let them bring us down to a resistant vibrational place.

Some may disagree and say just because someone is gossiping and enjoying someone else’s misfortune doesn’t necessarily mean they’re in a not good feeling vibrational place….(I’m not sure, does anyone really think that???)
And I say, if we’re getting enjoyment from doing this to others, it means we’re in a very resistant not good feeling place even if these actions helped us to feel better. If it doesn’t feel good to be doing this or to be part of a group that is doing this, it means we are likely in a better feeling vibrational place and are not needing to pull others down to feel good about ourselves.

Even if what’s been said is true, it isn’t a good idea to gossip and speak not nicely about others, it’s just not worth it!!
If we do find ourselves doing this, it’s good to make an effort to move into a better feeling vibrational place by noticing things around us that are positive and good.
If people around us are gossiping, avoid being dragged into it by not entertaining such conversations and remove yourself from the situation if you need too. If we stay strong in mind and action with our decision to not engage and take part in these types of conversations, it’s not very long before we either don’t come into contact with people who are talking about others negatively, or if we do, they don’t seem to feel “inspired” to talk about such things when we’re around because they don’t get the response they’re wanting…. That’s the beauty of the Law of Attraction don’t you think?

Allowing others to pass resistant vibrations onto us, doesn’t help anyone create what they’re wanting. In truth nothing can be passed to us without our full permission, and that permission comes through giving something our focused attention and thought that causes an emotional response that the Law of Attraction responds in-kind too.

Knowledge is power…. And we can exercise that power in any way we chose by attracting that which we are wanting….Or something else….

And so it is….
