Greetings, Lightworkers, Earth Angels, and new visitors to my site!
Recently, my good friend Rowan let me know that good friends of hers (friends of mine by association!) have been struggling with bullies at their school, and she had the fantastic idea of inviting school counselors to the upcoming Forgiveness Festival so that they could take the power of forgiveness back with them to their schools. Because this year’s festival will be more of a workshop-style event, only two hours, and 8th chakra/soulmate-focused, I told her that was an idea I’ll definitely use for the 2013 festival, which will be longer and more along the lines of the 2008 festival which was a forgive-a-thon style, all day event. But I still wanted to reach out directly to those being victimized by bullies with a message, so thank you to Rowan for the inspiration for this post!
Bullying is an element of the 5/3 Communication/Power chakra mirror, where our action or inaction down in the third chakra, relating to power and control, is a reflection of a blockage up in the 5th chakra, relating to communication and silence. The open heart or 4th chakra causes all of the other chakras to open. Forgiving opens the heart which then causes an open 5th chakra of joyful, peaceful, respectful communication which is reflected down in the third chakra as the Power of Service. In this space of love, we serve God and humanity, by communicating our desire for other people’s happiness, by loving them! So, when we love others, we desire their happiness; and when we forgive them, we desire their happiness anyway. The very act of forgiveness is part of the 5/3 Communication/Power chakra mirror from an open heart, because we serve (invoking our Power to love/chakra 3) humanity every time we communicate (chakra 5) to God by asking for another person to be healed of all pain and sadness and filled with Love.
Another element of the 5/3 chakra mirror from an open heart is protesting injustice and objecting to abuse of power. Bullies use words as weapons to threaten and attack because they feel compelled to assert dominance and leverage control (a compulsion which is caused by a closed heart and the inability to feel Love). Openhearted lightworkers use words as tools to serve with Love. Bullies often stop just short of physical violence because they know that would be illegal, but will use words as weapons just as cruelly. Forgiving them each night and pre-forgiving them each morning is an excellent way to act as the conduit for the healing power of divine love. And, we would ideally follow the act of forgiving or pre-forgiving with our own courageous objection of any injustice they would attempt to perpetrate against us. The BEST action to take, when being bullied, is to take out your cell phone camera and begin to film the person. We are called to encourage the young people of our society to speak up, to be brave, and to protest injustice. Young people, film yourselves saying to bullies, “Please, leave me alone. Please, I am asking you politely, to leave me alone.” Keep repeating this request, over and over and over and over.
When we teach our young people to “just walk away,” we actually teach them to do exactly what the bullies want! And what is it the people who engage in bullying want? To know that they can simply say the word and phonetics alone will cause another human being to move! Think how much physical energy it would take to pick up and move another person. The bully effects this same outcome using only psychic energy, via psychic, emotional, and verbal attack.
Other tips for dealing with bullies are …
- when in the presence of the bully, to request & receive Love from the other person’s guardian angel and your own guardian angel
- when in the presence of the bully, to give the forgiveness prayer silently (“Please, God, let me be healed of all pain and sadness and filled with Love, let ______ be healed of all pain and sadness and filled with Love, and please don’t let ______ hurt anyone else the way s/he’s hurting me by bullying me.”)
- to join in prayer with the guardian angels of all bullies anywhere in the Universe for their healing and happiness (“God, I join in prayer with the guardian angels of all bullies at my school and anywhere else in the Universe for all of them to be healed of all pain and sadness and filled with Joy by the Power of your Love.”)
- to pre-forgive each morning with the Circle of Angels (“God, I join in prayer with the Circle of Angels that perpetually surrounds the Earth and envelops it in a cocoon of divine love: please let everyone on Earth be healed of all pain and sadness and filled with JOY by the power of your Love!”)
Now you may be asking,
Why would we want to pray for the happiness of someone who has hurt us instead of for their punishment?
There’s a logical reason for forgiving (also defined as desiring another person’s happiness not because they have earned it with behavior that has earned it, but simply because they exist, that is to say, to love them the way that God does, for no reason) and that is that forgiving people heals them and fills them with God’s Love. And people who can feel God’s Love don’t hurt others. Why not? Because they no longer have any desire to. In this way, forgiving not only heals people, it causes the prevention of future pain of the same nature. Forgiveness is the way to not only world peace, but world JOY! In fact, the events Michelle and I will be hosting in May and June at LHSC will be, in essence, Joy Vigils, where we do the Circle of Angels visualization and use the power of the group’s focus to open the collective heart chakra that much more.
Finally, let’s remember here that people talk to others the way they have been spoken to, especially by their most dominant and most present authority figures, usually their parents, whose energy resides “up in” the 5th chakra of communication. In other words, the bully almost definitely has a bully parent. Imagine having to go home to that after school. It makes neglect sound like a day at the beach, no? (Okay, a cold day at an overcast beach ….) So after you forgive the bully, you might add a second prayer for the healing and happiness of the bully’s parents, who undoubtedly use words and weapons, and possibly even fists and weapons as weapons. Their kids are doing at school what they learned at home.
So let us as lightworkers, paradigm shifters, peaceful warriors, social justice activists, Millennials, Indigos, Crystals, and anyone else interested, BE the conduits for the healing power of Divine Love and open the collective Heart with every prayer for humanity’s happiness we give!
Angel blessings for a great day!
