We aren't born with bad energy. We develop it from experiences that leave us feeling alone, helpless, or victimized. Mel LLeras, C.Ht.
We hear it all the time… phrases like, “Oh, that person has bad energy…” or “Ugh, I just couldn’t be around somebody with such a low vibration.”
To be clear, phrases like these often ARE indicators – but less so of the person targeted in the statement, more so of the person making the statement.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with creating space between yourself and another whose energy does not work in harmony with yours in the moment. But moments don’t last forever, and these two common phrases are filled with both judgement and ignorance. For the purpose of our work, these phrases are indicators that the sayer is not in a neutral space, nor are they in a space for growth – but most especially, they are not in a space to effectively heal… or teach.
Because you see, we respond through learned behavior and are shaped by our experiences. •
In my opinion, these phrases should not be tossed around lightly… as if to “cry wolf”. Because if we do… become so laxed as to dishonor the sacredness or the power of our words… we may fail to recognize when the rare, but authentically harmful “bad energy” situation does arise.
We aren’t born with bad energy. We develop it from experiences that leave us feeling alone, helpless, or victimized.
