This one is rather "out there" so, as always, take what's useful and discard the rest. :)
I sustained a blow to my energy body first thing Saturday morning. I'm still recovering. Thank you to my incomparable friends for their love and help. I'm working hard to get well enough fast enough that I won't miss physical therapy in a little while. It has been wonderful so far and I cannot miss an appointment now!
There is a thing called ill-wishing that Christianity for sure advises against and no doubt other belief systems of good-will find wrong as well. Ill-wishing can cause bad effects in the one wished ill upon, it isn't character-building for the ill-wisher, and simply isn't constructive to resolving the problem. There are several proven and time-honored methods for deflecting ill-wishing and even turning it back upon the ill-wisher.
I only recommend what my belief system advises. Matthew 5:43-45 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father in Heaven; for He makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."
What's sad about ill-wishing, or rather what is particularly sad about this specific event, is that I was completely uninvolved in any way in the problem that the wisher was faced with. I was a victim of false accusation generated in her own mind. The wisher did try prayer afterwards to "make me not hate" her but I've never hated her to begin with! My heavens, I don't hate anybody!
This is a classic example of false accusation, bad conscience, and how it can cause true assault on someone else's energy body. I felt the surge of hatred and anger just as truly as though she had been in front of me swinging her fist. Her ill-wishing physically injured me just as though she had.
Some people have inborn talent to maneuver and manipulate their own energy. They can do things like slam people they don't like and make all their friends line up and "do right". If they're really in denial, they say things like, "people who cross me always have something bad happen to them!" I shake my head when I hear that. You're more likely to be causing the other person trouble yourself by nothing more sinister than your own ill-wishing. Nothing to write home about there.
Some people are more susceptible to ill-wishing than others. I am extremely sensitive to it, so sensitive it would defy comprehension; however, I've got references. I have had to find ways of contending with it throughout my entire life, and it remains a problem now.
One person who has seen how ill-wishing whacks me said, "Well, quit pissing people off!" That wouldn't have helped in this situation because I had nothing to do with it in the first place. I don't often have much to do with things that cause people to ill-wish upon me. I get more general crap from Christian-haters, people who hate my former employer, people who hate my friends, and that sort of thing.
I got whacked because of someone else's bad conscience, Scorpionic desire for revenge, and Leonine conviction that she is leading the way in saving the world by going after people like me. Then she discovered that I wasn't doing anything.
Give me a freakin' break. And keep your ill-wishing to yourself. We're on the same side here and please keep that in mind.
When all this came to light I thought to myself, wow, some people credit me with a lot more power than I have, and some underestimate me entirely.
For the record, I'm in the middle.
