While feeling envious stinks, with compassionate self-awareness our most uncomfortable feelings and experiences become our greatest teachers.
Jealousy has the power to teach us what we truly desire.
Likewise, envy reveals to us the attributes and characteristics, which we see in others, but imagine that we don’t possess or have within us to cultivate.
While we may get on a superficial level, when we feel envy it is because we desire what someone else has, taking it to the next level of mindful awareness allows us to come into deeper engagement with what we truly desire to feel, express, experience and manifest.
Paying attention, raising our awareness and reflecting on our feelings of jealousy provides us with potent fuel for personal empowerment.
We may suppress feelings of jealousy to avoid confronting this discomfort.
When the truth is that attempts to avoid this kind of discomfort only delays the inevitable and keeps us stifled in our growth.
The good news is that engaging and learning from what lies under the surface is a skill of empowerment that we can learn.
I am passionate about mining the riches of our feelings and using these inner resources to create lives of passion, purpose and fulfillment.
This month throughout our Celestial Cycle Series (introduced below) we will explore how to flip feelings of jealousy and envy from enemies into teachers.
We will dive into the Evolving Mindfully approach to empowerment in a free webinar this Sunday, April 22nd.
