Here are 3 Ways You can Negate Negativity
3 Ways to Negate Negativity.
A few posts ago I wrote about the opportunities and challenges a silent client can present to us.
Negative callers can present an equal challenge as well.
It can be very frustrating as reader to have “Negative Nellie” or “No-no Nancy” on the line but there are ways to work with these types of energies.
Everyone has their own way – and some more experienced readers may just breeze through – but here are a few insights into negating negativity.
1. Cultivate Compassionate Detachment
This is a concept many readers have not heard of and many balk at, but every reader needs to be able to stay detached emotionally to work at their highest level.
I do not mean that you should be cold or aloof. Nor do I suggest not feeling empathy. Rather, connect on a spiritual / energetic level, not an emotional one.
Try not to allow their emotions to frustrate you. They are not being negative towards you personally. This may sound counter intuitive, but compassionate detachment exist is healthy energetic detachment which protects you and allows you to thrive.
Signs you may be too emotionally involved may present as frustration towards your caller, impatience or impassiveness. Try grounding yourself beforehand and work with spiritual integrity/emotional intelligence instead of complete emotional attachment.
There are gems, oils and herbs that can assist with just this. Try keeping a piece of obsidian or muldavite near you, anointing with myrrh, drinking sage tea or smudging.
2. Understand Why
Sometimes a caller will call just to test you or see if you are “real”. They may have had unfortunate experiences in the past and so are wary of talking to a psychic again.
Although this can be very distressing to a reader, I find that explaining my methods and how I work can help calm and center them.
Negative emotions are often born of pain, despair, betrayal or unwellness. Many times, a caller is simply unable to express the complicated and chaotic emotions they are experiencing so they are shut down when they call.
Emotional pain takes many forms and negativity often follows periods of anger, deep hurt, or fear.
It’s not always easy but listening patiently and allowing them to express often transforms the initial negativity to something softer.
3. Don’t be Distracted
Stay positive and keep going forward with your work. Sometimes a caller is just not open to receive in the moment, but they are hearing your words and they may be able to accept them later.
If the caller becomes very aggressively negative, you may wish to take a break and ask your caller if they wish to continue the call.
Remember, just because they are saying no does mean you are wrong. Conversely, it often means you are very accurate, but they are unable to accept it in the moment.
Truth, especially when it comes to love, and the heart can be very painful to manage and oft times our callers need time to heal and integrate information.
Sometimes they call wanting to hear a specific outcome, even if they know its unlikely so a reactionary no to your words may happen.
Part of doing this work is being able to work with all sorts of personalities in all sorts of emotional spaces.
It is up to us to take control of the energy and guide our callers to their highest potential. Whether they accept it or not is on them, and we may never know if they do, but we can always plant seeds and nurture the light.
