Last Christmas I started a vision board for 2011. I posted all sorts of things I wanted to attract into my life experience. Many of those things materialised for me and I must advise you to be careful or should I say mindful of what you wish for. I posted that I wanted to make/meet like minded friends. Little did I know that would involve me letting go of friends who were not so ‘like minded’. A consequence of sorts. When you pop yourself on your spiritual path there are many challenges, changes and growth etc, but, as you move along your vibration changes, we are energetic beings after all. I’ve been on the path myself now for ten years but have had major shifts occur in the past four years. So it makes sense that all the people I attracted into my life four years ago were on a similar wave length to me at that time which is very different to where I sit today.
Four years ago I had suffered an emotional break down and was in a very low place personally and I had a lot of healing to do. Around this time I met many new people, some became friends, some did not, one in particular became a friend but I never really ‘got’ her I was always shaking my head not understanding her behaviour yet somewhat envious of her free spirit. I ‘get’ her now and we remain very very close, seems I just to catch up a bit I guess. Anyway I pursued my healing journey, read a lot, meditated a lot, saw my healer a lot, learn’t a lot and during all this healing, meditating, reading and learning I grew spiritually and emotionally and my vibration raised considerably. Now don’t get me wrong here I’m not saying I’m ‘better’ or ‘higher’ than anyone because that is not true of anyone at all. I just noticed over time that I didn’t resonate with some people anymore. I couldn’t relate to them, I felt I had somehow alienated myself even further but knew in my heart I had to keep going. My life was improving and I was feeling amazing, happy as I had found my purpose. I was just not on their wave length anymore, just like turning into a radio station, I was turned into a different channel to some of those around me.
So this involved friendships ending. Some seemed to just drift apart, I felt like I was no longer welcome in some friendships and while I remained friendly it was obvious the friendship we had shared no longer existed. But one ended suddenly, harshly and in some ways violently – not on my part mind you, on theirs. Now the flip side here is the friends whom I drifted apart from blamed me, were quite angry and nasty towards me and became quite uncivil to me. I guess they felt I had changed, which I suppose I did but they couldn’t understand why and felt betrayed. It makes the whole process tricky because feelings and hearts are involved and while I didn’t do anything intentionally to hurt anyone it did happen. When friendships or relationships change or end there is always a grieving process for both parties to go through. Am I responsible for how others feel? No I am not. We are all responsible for our own feelings and our own reactions. We are the captains of our own ship, we have the power to choose how we feel.
When I made my vision board lovingly posting all sorts of things I wanted in my life it never occurred to me I would have to let go of some ‘old’ things to make way for the new. I had to work my way through old feelings, old beliefs, old patterns, I guess in a way the old me to make way for the new me that was brimming to the surface. Not an easy process but a necessary one for me.
So I highly recommend making a vision board, I find them to be an extremely valuable and magical tool of manifestation.
Be the master of your own destiny and be clear about what you want to create and manifest into your life experience. Be prepared for change, growth and blessings but most of all be careful what you wish for!
Blessings and love
