Negative energies from the people around you can be harmful

What would you do, if you had a dream and someone crush it for you?
What would you do if you believe in something so deaply and trying to achieve it so hard and someone tells you: ''Wake up, its just a dream, it would never happen!''

Would you give up?
Would you try to continue?
Or would you just stay heartbroken, feeling lost and helpless.

In our life we meet all kind of people, positive, negative, people who will try to help us and people who will try to put us down.

How to deal with negative energy around you and how to deal with psychic attacks? 
A psychic attack is when a person sends negative energy to another person, with the conscious or unconscious intention to inflict harm upon you, your life or your dream. Harm can be launched towards your emotional, physical, spiritual or mental state.
People and places carry their own energies that can adversely affect us.
Given the possibility of these negative influences, the next problem is to detect them and then clear them. The most important way of protecting yourself from the effect of negative energy is to be emotionally strong and not allowing others to identify with your fears because this reveals your weakness. Negative energy wears you out, takes the fun out of life and destroys all your dreams before they're even given a chance.
Not every negative person is attacking you personally, sometime people are just negative.

You have to remember one thing, no one has the power to harm you, unless you allow them to harm you. And you are allowing others to harm you by fighting against them. By fighting against what you do not want in your live.

What can you do about it?
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

- Stay focused on what is most important to you.

- Try to avoid the company of negative people because they can drain your positive energy.

- If you believe in higher power you trust, pray for protection.

- Try Reiki or use stones for protection.

-  Meditation can help a lot.

- Use the white light technique or cross your arms. Imagine yourself surrounded with white light. 
  When speaking to someone who has bad energy, cross your arms. 

- Spring clean, get rid of clutter.

- Just smile and don’t say anything.  Leave the room if you can.

- Go to a park and surround yourself with flowers and sunshine. 

- Remember: Positive thinking leads to positive outcomes.

If you ever want to do anything great with your life, you have to avoid all negative people and negativity. Stay positive and believe in yourself. You are amazing.

The more relaxed you can get, the better you'll do.

''You are greater than the problems you face. You are more than what you are going through. Let the problems go. Whatever the issue may be, engage yourself purposefully and enthusiastically in the goodness that still exists around you.''

''Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest.'' 
~Sri Chinmoy ~

''If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.''
~Pat Riley~

''This is the Zen approach: nothing is there to be done. There is nothing to do. One has just to be. Have a rest and be ordinary, be natural.''

Every word you say is an affirmation

Having good self motivation and confident of being you is the best way to stand out yourself.  
We all know that thinking and feeling positive, attracts positive situations. 
But how can you do it when you feel low or when you don't feel inspired?
The occasional case of the blues is perfectly normal, but that doesn't make dealing with it any easier. 
Positive and negative thoughts are contagious. If you are surrounded by negative people, it's only natural that you'll start to think and feel the same way.
Affirmations are a wonderful tool
to keep your life on track

An affirmation is a carefully formatted statement that should be repeated to one's self and written down frequently. Affirmations focus attention on the positive outcome of a situation and are structured to affirm that the positive outcome is already a reality.
I recommend you spend 10-15 minutes several times a day doing your positive thinking statement, because every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation.

You can use positive thinking affirmations in your daily life.

Choose a statement from those below and repeat, repeat, repeat throughout the day, every day, of every week.

One of the different ways of dealing with negative thinking is to read some positive quotes.
Remember that it is you who chooses how reality looks like. 


Positive Affirmations
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Today is a beautiful day because I am going to make it so.

Magical Paris under a blanket of snow

This winter we only had 3 days of snow. 
I love snow, the beautiful snowflakes gently falling down, the trees and all nature are covered with white frost and glittering snow.
Snow is so magical and when it keeps falling down, suddenly everything goes white and outside seem more relax and peaceful.
During snowy days all the sounds around seem to be lower and all the people calmer.
Everything is beautiful, covered with a white blanket as in a fairy tale. 

Two weeks ago I was talking to my boyfriend, telling him how I wish to see snow in Paris. Later on I was sitting in the living room when my boyfriend asked me to look outside. 
When I opened curtains I couldn't believe it. Everything was covered in snow. Our terrace turned into winter wonderland. 
Wishes do come true. :-)
I couldn't stop looking out the window at the snow.
After an hour I told my boyfriend ''We have to go out''.
''Now'' he asked me.
''Yes'' I answered ''We have to go out to take some photos''.
It was 10 o'clock at night, but that didn't stop me to put a jacket on and running outside like a kid, taking pictures of everything.
Paris in the snow is pure magic. 
It was amazing seeing our street turning into something truly breathtaking. 
I have to say it is fun walking between white trees on the white ground and looking at the snowflakes falling down. There is something about seeing everything covered in the white blanket.
I love when it snows and I love when it rains.  
Feeling the rain, walking in the rain, hearing it and seeing it, really washes away all the stress. And it's the same for snow. It feel so good. 
It doesn't matter if you are lying comfortably in your bed and looking out the window or having a nice walk, breathing the freezing air. 
Sometimes being outside can take the edge off. 
Sometimes to go for a walk might be all you need.
It just brings a happy feeling. 


Here are some wonderful photos I took:
