How other people’s guilt can affect you energetically.
The very first thing I wish to share is that guilt is one, if not THE most negative emotion we can feel and hold on to.
Many people say anger is, but I disagree. Anger can propel us to do great things when handled adequately.
How does this all work energetically?
The person who feels guilty will project all her/his unprocessed emotions, wounds, triggers, hatred, “poor me scenarios” onto you in order to justify their behaviour, course of actions or decisions. They will never even realise that all this behaviour stems out of a deep sense of guilt and they feel entitled to their rage.
Not only is this overwhelming to witness, it energetically brings you down if you don’t know how to protect yourself.
And it happens easily that we lower our “shields” and allow these people to express themselves, and we might even buy into their dramas and endless cycles of negativity and feel we “owe” them to listen.
But you know what? We don’t!
We really, really don’t!
An energetic “cord” is built when someone tries to unleash their hidden “guilt trip” onto you and you take it on. Why? Deep down they WANT you to feel guilty and understand them. They are very eager to transfer their own guilt onto you.
While the other person is justifying themselves, again and again, sometimes in what seems like an endless loop, you are energetically hooked and will carry that “baggage” for them, especially if you buy into it and feel sorry for them.
So here is what to do:
You don’t owe anyone to listen to their unprocessed shit.
You are not responsible for anyone’s shit.
You have your own shit to sort through – focus on that!
If you are carrying a lot of someone else’s guilt around make sure you find a way to work on it and to release it. Seek professional help if you don’t manage by yourself (it’s not easy!)
Or email me if you would like to schedule for a FREE 20 min chat and wish to work with me on releasing and cutting these guilt-cords once and for all.
