Elevated thought of the day:
Getting rid of JEALOUSY.
JEALOUS (noun): Resentment against a rival, a person enjoying success or advantage, etc., or against another’s success or advantage itself.
In fact, at the very least, jealousy causes feelings of animosity and inferiority and at most it causes anger, aggression and worst. People have killed and people have died over this word and I’m not sure if people realize how big of a part it plays in our everyday lives.
When I start feeling jealous of someone or something and I go to speak the word, I first try to take a step back and examine what it is that they have that I desire. If it is something that I can obtain – then I mentally or physically write it down on my vision board and start working towards it. If it is something that I absolutely cannot obtain then I try and flip that human feeling of wanting what others have into true happiness for that person/people and then let it go.
Letting go of jealousy allows us to move easier into a new, positive, loving and harmonious time on this beautiful earth. There is no place for old negative energy. Because that is all jealousy is. Old, negative energy meant to pit us against each other, make us feel lesser and to bring us down.
And why can’t we be happy for others? Some are blessed with beautiful bodies and some with beautiful minds and spirits. Some seemingly have it all – Awesome! Be happy for them. And then remind yourself why you also have so many things to be happy for… and then carry on with your new, elevated, grateful and happy life.
