I Have a Question…


Do you ever find that when you are “in the zone” spiritually, riding so high that you are connected to EVERYTHING and the love from your soul is shining, that you are suddenly attacked verbally for no good reason?

I know that my actions and reactions are the only thing I can control, but I have a really hard time controlling this.

This seems to contradict all I have learned about energy!

I am trying not to beat myself up for allowing my energy to go DOWN to match the attack, and trying not to be angry at the person who didn’t stop until I did.

I still have a lot to learn.


Hope that your energy is flying high and filled with LOVE!

  1. I totally agreed…

    Some people know just when to steal your joy…
    But keep smiling and hold on to your high…and try to get away from that negative energy….

  2. Remembering, as you mention, what I can control, which is my response to, what I can not, namely others perception of me and their reaction.

    1. BINGO!! That, for sure, is the lesson for me. The Universe has a way of showing us what we need to work on. Hope light shines brightly on you!

  3. I have definitely experienced this..My lesson has been to be in gratitude thank the universe and source for bringing those people across my path to create experience of practice for my reaction and allow me opportunity to practice correcting my perspective and reactions and become now where I dont take it personal and can see there reflection is what the see and allow them also the opportunity to correct and not enable myself or them.. Your beautiful in sharing and I hope youll continue to share your lessons along the way.

    1. Thank you so much for the heartfelt response to my question! And it helps to hear that it most probably is indeed a lesson, and experience for me to practice. I also think that it has been recurring because I did not handle the situation the way I would have liked…hopefully, I will be more aware the next time…and keep love as my shining source!
      Thanks for taking the time to respond…I hope your day is filled with love and light!

  4. I immediately put that person in check and once I finish with them they know better than to keep messing with me. I was not raised to be anybody doormat and I will fight back.

    1. Ah! DeBorah!! I won’t lie and say that I have never done that…
      This person hardly EVER has that kind of energy so it is so shocking when it happens…and then it happens when I am so full of love and light!
      Anyway…wish you a wonderful Sunday and hope the weather has eased up a bit for you!! Hello to Stephen! <3

      1. Thanks. My Dad had an expression, Don’t mistake kindness for weakness. What you allow will continue. I don’t allow anyone to disrespect me. I set limits and boundaries. I’m no longer tender hearted and I have no problem kicking fools, morons and idiots to the curb.

  5. Hi Lorrie. I’m sorry that you are experiencing this cycle. Maybe you’re “feeding” people who don’t know how to help themselves feel better. I trust you to know how best to handle it. For me, I’m not trying to fly high as much as to be centered these days. Hugs and blessings.

    1. I get that, Brad…’flying high’ has a counterpart that isn’t very comfortable. Thanks for your response and for having faith in me…I hope to be able to handle this situation much better the next time it happens.
      Hope this Sunday is beautiful for you <3

  6. Yes, I find this very often. I go out feeling really good and people will start talking in a bad way to me, people I do not know from the village I live in. Also in a language I do not fully understand, they think they are funny. I just smile at them and return all their badness back to them in the Name of God. They soon close their mouths and look the other way.

    Lately I seem to get a boost in my life only to have the rug pulled out from underneath me. Life at the moment is so changeable.

    Keep strong and try to keep from taking the bait. At least I can pretend to not understand still it is unpleasant.

    The veils are up and we are pitted against each other. Rather them against us. It is what they have always done. You do not dim your Light for others just make it glow even stronger. Blessings to you and much soul love <3

    1. Much soul love received!! Thank you!
      I think the main answer is coming clear…and it is the answer that I probably knew deep in my heart. I have to be in control of my energy…my power…and not let anything extraneous affect it!! It was a chicken or egg thing…I thought that my energy should affect someone else’s energy…when in reality their energy affected mine!
      I know you are going through a lot…but I also know that you have the strength to endure ALL OF IT…and to come out the other side of it stronger and more full of faith!!!
      Much love <3

  7. Hi Lorrie,
    Your timing is really interesting. On Thursday night I was walking with my husband, about 5 doors down from my house when a I heard a clang and was a little bit startled, and then I realized that it was a person slamming their gate closed – no sooner did I realize this but the woman was immediately in my face and spat on me and said, “yeah, you better run.” Now, in the past, I would take this personally to mean that my energy was attracting it. I do not believe that to be the case now. After discussing the matter with a few of my friends and fellow energy workers, lightworkers, buddhists, etc., we shared in agreement that this person was acting completely of their own issue. I was indeed an innocent bystander. This is not the first time this sort of thing has happened to me. Taking it personally is something our bodies do. We have a bodily reaction as we ought to. Though we have the ability to have control over our actions. In my case, once I realized I may be in danger, I held my ground and walked firmly at the same pace. I also didn’t escalate the situation – which was probably the most challenging thing. My husband didn’t either. I remember him asking, “did she just spit on you?” I think my reply was delayed until we were further past her. Anyways, I will be documenting the occurrence with the authorities. I did not realize that “spitting” is an assault until a friend told me. There’s a lot about energy, but there’s a pragmatism that needs to be accorded to here. Further, I was not flying high at the moment, but I was just barely fielding my own life – probably in a way that said, “yes, world, I’m not a runner.” Our lessons are so individual and personal. I’m sending you lots of love, Ka

    1. Oh, Ka…how terrible for you!! It just seems such a nasty thing to do to someone. I appreciate you sharing your story here. And I agree that our lessons are so individual…and personal!
      I keep thinking about how the whole thing went down…and I’m certain that it was an opportunity for me to NOT lower my energy. I have changed so much but apparently there are some things that still require work.
      And I’m grateful for the chances to work ๐Ÿ˜Š!
      I send you lots of love and light dear soul…may your week ahead be filled with understanding ๐Ÿ’œ

  8. I have experienced something similar at times…and take it as a lesson to keep away from that negative energy, or at least not to connect with it. May your light shine, Lorrie. Many blessings <3

    1. Thanks, Helen! I agree. One of these days I will be able to refrain!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I tried…i will do better next time! Have a super week ๐Ÿ’š

  9. I had this same thing happen a couple months ago. I was shocked by my reaction which was way out of character.. But sometimes anger is a normal reaction. Sometimes we need to defend ourselves. We are human, my friend. Grace is here for you now and always. Big hugs. <3

    1. Ah! Thanks for the soothing words, JoAnna. I kind of had the feeling that I was not alone. I love ‘Grace is here for you now and always!’ Yes…it is true. And I am certain I will have another chance to react differently. Many blessings sent your way! <3 <3

  10. Never had this happen, no. But there are some Strong Mars energies flying around these days – you might want to consult weaver of neptuneandtheoak.com. Feel free to tell him I sent you – very reasonable also. Might clarify some stuff so you don’t feel so blindsided. Love to you, Lorrie! <3

    1. Bela…I don’t know how I missed this! Thank you so much for your kind message …and for the referral! I must say I am in a very auspicious time in my life with many things going on and many energies that affect me. I appreciate our connection so much!
      Hope life offers you gifts of love, peace, and kindness ๐Ÿ’œ

  11. I think we’ve all been there at one time or another – reacting in a certain way and then regretting that we allowed ourselves to get sucked into the yuck. Don’t be too hard on yourself, pick up from this moment and carry on – each moment is a new moment to start anew. Wishing you love and joy and peace Lorrie. Hugs! <3

    1. Ah! Beautiful words, Jewels…thank you! I appreciate your perspective…and I am okay with myself…now…and know that I will learn more and more how not to respond to that kind of negativity. This journey we are on offers lessons in many ways…yes?
      Wishing you sweet blessings for a week filled with beauty ๐Ÿ’—

  12. Jewels couldn’t have said it better….I have done the same thing and then I kick myself thinking I’m better than that (not in an arrogant way, but in knowing oneself)….then I beat myself up for allowing it to pull me to that level…at the end of the day, we are human and far from perfect beings. He forgives us and to your point, you did learn from it…so there is a positive take away!
    All of that said…hate when that happens!! Have a blessed week!!

    1. Ah! Kirt…thank you so much for adding your energy to this! You stated the whole process so perfectly…start to finish! The key is that if we find ourselves in that situation, I have to believe that we get better being able to control our reactions…but when we don’t…we need to be compassionate with ourselves and bot stay in the energy of shame for going there. Thank You, I appreciate our connection and reading your words spread a blanket of love!
      Blessitude ๐Ÿ’— Have a wonderful week, Kirt!

  13. You are a sensitive person Lorrie, so words can hurt you … especially when your heart is open. Know that it is their pain and negativity that is being projected on to you. Energy moves and transforms, just as our feelings do. Pause, breathe and center yourself. Acknowledge the feelings that came up and let them pass. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•

    1. Thank You, Val ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ I am grateful for your compassionate caring, kind words, and great suggestions! I sometimes wish I was not as sensitive as I am, but would never ever in a million years change it!! What I used to view as a burden, I now see as a gift ๐Ÿ˜Š But, I’m still working on the details!!!
      Thank you for your beautiful spirit ๐Ÿ’–

  14. I’m so sorry to hear this, Lorrie. I’ve learned from experience that, most often, it’s more about the person who is being negative than it is about you. But still, hurtful harsh words can be hard to hear – you’re only human after all! I try to remember the Four Agreements everydayโ€ฆ Be impeccable with your word. Never assume. Don’t take things personally. Always do your best. Hope this helps! xoxo

    1. Ah! Yes! Perfect ๐Ÿ˜Š I agree that it was probably all the other person’s energy…and looking back I think it bothered me so from a selfish standpoint…I hated that my beautiful mood/energy was encroached upon. I know that I have the ability not to go there…and I hope I get better at it!๐Ÿ˜ƒ
      Thanks so much for your kind words. Hope you have a week filled with Blessitude! ๐Ÿ’œ

    1. I don’t really mean that I “like” that it happens everytime…just that you left your energy here ๐Ÿ˜Š Have a wonderful Sunday!

  15. Yes, I know what you mean…. I has happened me as well.
    So true that we can not control other poepleยดs acts. In fact we can barely “control” ours… Why should we care… I guess we care because as yous ay those attacks put us down. There is a sort of swifting energy, somehow.
    In my personal experience, I try to deal with these situations as if they were obstacles. An obstacle can become a stepping stone, someone once told me… We are always learning, and we truly evolve when we sort out all these bad situations. Trying to react as if we donยดt care is a good strategy, even more if the confrontation is face to face, or explicit… Also, many times I try to think that maybe those attacks are motivated in othersยดproblems or failures, and not in ourselves (we are just the targets of their frustations, maybe) … You never truly know whatยดs going on in their minds and lives, I guess!…
    Good vibes to you… ๐Ÿ˜€ <3

    1. You bring up some very good points and I love your quote that “an obstacle can become a stepping stone!” I agree with you…we are given so many lessons in this life…so many things to “work on.”
      I’m a firm believer that many times people never even think of how their behaviors will affect someone else…they only think of themselves and sometimes they are in such pain that they react from that place.
      Thanks so much for leaving your energy here ๐Ÿ˜ Have a blessed Sunday!

  16. Hi Lorrie,

    I think, as others have said, that we’ve all been ambushed. It is hard when we’re in a bit of free air and suddenly we’re in what feels like a dogfight. What I remember reading this is something a wise person once told me when I was having a hard time. He said that when our system connects and we have a lot of energy and we are “flying high”, then we are more available to process the difficulties that remain in our unconscious. It’s like the system is ready to take out the next bit of insecurity or darkness or doubt and examine it. Better to do so when we have resources and light around us, than when we’re already in the trenches. So sometimes we think we’re soaring along and then ‘WHAM!’ and he said he thought it was just how things process sometimes. So that is what came to mind, but also please know I’m leery of any one size fits all explanations–in just about anything. They are tempting to grab hold of, but I think reality is so rich and interconnected and deeply integrated that there are quite nearly an infinite number of factors at work in each interaction, and sometimes we can’t figure it out. We can just forgive it…

    Peace to you, my friend!

    1. Ah! Yes…I am exhaling and I feel lighter after reading your response (for the 2nd time!) What a super way to look at it and it feels really right to my senses! You know I am a firm believer in all things happen for a reason…so it would make sense that we are given what we need to handle whatever happens. And in this case for me to handle the unexpected ‘attack’ I was in very high energy. And even though I did not handle it quite the way I would have liked…imagine what it could have been if I started in a lower energy!
      Thank you my friend…it feels good to feel your loving energy ๐Ÿ’›
      Sweet blessings!

  17. This is the wave we all ride dear Lorrie.. Our Human mind is geared to trip one up, be it with guilt, unworthiness or some other negative emotion.. Its a journey I have often travelled through..
    At times I have got really angry with my inner self.. But then it speaks its mind back.. and I have learnt to listen to the space between words.. Which bring a whole new dimension into being..
    I have also found as I progress, I leave those behind whose energies no longer serve….
    Wishing you well dear friend..
    Love to you <3

    1. Hi Sure! How are you dear soul?
      Thank you for leaving your wisdom and beautiful energy here ๐Ÿ˜ ‘Listen to the space between words’….ah! how I love it ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
      Yes, it seems that the more inner work I do, the more I expose that has to be done. I am not complaining…no! I am full of Blessitude that all these things are being shown to me and that my soul is a willing partner to work on all of this ๐Ÿ˜Š
      I hope that you are better than terrific (saying that just reminded me of an old friend who used to say that!) and that you, too, are learning from your soul…but I KNOW that you ARE!!!
      Sweet blessings, Sue. I hope the week ahead is full of compassion ๐Ÿ’œ

  18. I can relate. Sometimes the enemy uses people to try and steal our joy or distract us. You are not alone but don’t let it keep you down ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. If you have a question Lorrie, I wish I could give you an answer. I have been in that ” zone” and I have experienced that crash that might be similar to what you have been feeling. I can’t change things for you, but I can genuinely tell you that I love you and who you are, and I hope that the best thing I can be, is to be good for you. Love, Harlon

    1. Thank you my sweet soul brother!! I love you too, and the beautiful thing about experiencing this…is that we get to experience being in the “zone”…again…and again…and again!!
      Thank you for your always beautiful support <3 I hope that today the sun shines brightly on you…Peace! <3

  20. Yes it has happened twice on my blog comments I did try to explain but the person’s just attacked on the basis of me being Indian… Luckily it was a long work I didn’t have the energy to deal with her negativity ultimately told her chill and not comment on my post if she doesn’t like Indians. The next day morning I re read my comments and I was so happy that I didn’t go down to her level and deleted her comments
