What does jealousy do to someone?
This is a subject that not many people like to talk about, but it is one that is always ripe within human nature. The last few years since changing my life around and doing well for myself this is something i have been under attack of from some people. I was always told by a dear friend of mine that when i first had my book published i would be under attack from those that knew me and those that had done nothing with their own lives. At the time i just smiled and thought that this would never be! but guess what? it was!.
I have made some lovely friends since this but there are still a few that i have not seen since my young days that show these jealous traits and try to find ways to ‘run me down’ or send me silly pityful comments to my website in the hope that i will read them and take them to heart! how wrong they are!!. Even though i know who this is and why they feel they need to do this, i still remain happy and calm. They forget that being a spiritual person does not mean you are weak and frail, infact it means i am strong and very wise with a heart of gold but a defence of steel. I could hit back and make their life very hard like anyone would, but because i am happy and i know about the energy of jealousy i am able to pity them and feel sorry for them. I know that life is hard for us all and we all would like more of what some have, but to let the energy of jealousy rule our life is nothing but a killer for ourselves and not the one we aim it at.
It is not just me that gets these attacks but people i know who are also very spiritual people get these attacks because they have a good life and are happy and had to work hard for it. People do not run to praise us! but they can run to try and put us down. I have felt alot of anger these last few weeks for what someone i know has had to put up with all because of jealousy and i have had to calm this anger and see that the ones doing this are very lonely people who may not have got out of life what they wanted and so to counteract these feelings they try and run others down in an attempt to feel better about themselves. They forget that what they say about others in what they feel about themselves. This person they have tried to run down is on a very high spiritual level and they send this energy back to where it came by refusing to read what is said. This is very wise and shows that this person knows that the energy of jealousy is not part of their life and belongs to the ones who sent it.
Jealousy is a name that we do not hear often because we link it to school days when we would hear kids running each other down because they didn’t have what the others did. We forget that jealousy is also what some bring with them to adulthood. I was always told that “At the Top it is lonely and you will not have many friends”, i used to ponder on this is try to work out what it meant. Now i see what it means. It means that people who strive to live a better life and work hard to gain more in life are more open to attacks from jealous minds. It is a shame but it is true.
When i get attacks to me about my work and my life i always pity the one who is doing it. I know that they may not have much in life and may feel that they could have done more with their life. I always see them saying to me what they think of themselves and i smile and send good energy back with love and healing for their mind. I always think to myself “Why would anyone who is happy want to send naty comments to me and spend hours looking at my website in hope of seeing me unhappy? and we all know the answer!. I was given this small piece of writing from a friend once and it sums up a person who feels jealousy………..
Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative— self value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it’s a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanners within. Find the true seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voice and experience. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy. You can then render the pain and fear and put it in the bin.
I was also given this from someone who used to read this out to his pupils…….. The Jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves…..(William Penn, some fruits of solitude, 1963)
So i hope this helps others who feel that they are being under attack for being happy! now you know why you are being attacked, it is nothing to do with you, it is to do with the one who is saying it. Pity them and just remember that what they say about you is what they are themselves!!!
