DO NOT ASSUME!
My assumptions about others may not be about them at all.
I was puzzled by my colleague Beth – she’d promised to record a message about a program that was dear to her heart. Each reminder was responded to positively but nothing was ever recorded. My assumption that she had an unspoken issue made me feel uncomfortable.
I could choose to feel unpleasant about my assumption or find out what had happened.
When we spoke Beth said, “I’ve been feeling so bad. I thought I knew how to record a video on my phone but every time I tried something got messed up. I felt incompetent and then my ex-husband started becoming abusive and I only had energy to deal with that.” Now I felt bad for Beth!
My assumption had offered negative energy. Our conversation was a reminder that our best intentions are interrupted by life. When my assumptions are challenged, explored and released I am grounded in the positive energy of the Universe.
Be aware of your assumptions and the negative energy they can invite
Choose to be present to positive energy with others.
Notice the freedom of living beyond assumptions.
