In life I am usually prone to cutting people outta my life when they upset me, or drain me, or are energetically aggressive. I feel as if I do not have room in my energy spere for people who are not a part of my greater good. That being said, I also recieved a message while meditating that the more appropriate response to people with heavy energy, and heavy energy actions, is to send heart energy to them, straight into their heart.
For example, a person acting from darkness is usually doing so because of a lost heart piece, and what they are looking for is energy. Usually this feels draining, heavy, and I have a hard time remembering that the person isn't consciously doing anything, but it is because I am not remembering to tap into the universal life energy continuously.
When remembering that I am fully connected, that my energy is not mine but divine, then this becomes a Radical endeavor to give people what they are looking to take from you (i.e. energy) straight into their hearts is to crack open the true issue and make them face that; with love of course.
Giving the gift of 'exactly what they asked for' can be much more illuminating and healing than cutting people out of my life.
