True Story. Last night I dreamt that I was arguing with my partner. I don't remember the specifics, but I was super annoyed in my dream. I woke up around 6am with a pit in my belly and incredibly pissed off. I felt as if we had been in a brawl all night long when the reality is that he had been sleeping peacefully next to me, completely unaware that we were now fighting
.
.
When I woke up, I became conscious of my anger and I noticed how I immediately wanted to pick a fight w...ith him... could you please close the door??? turn down the light!!! make sure the water in the shower isn't too loud???!!!... lmao, AS IF.
.
.
And what struck me was how the THOUGHTS I had while sleeping were so powerfully impacting my CURRENT EMOTIONS and potentially MY FUTURE BEHAVIOR. So instead of voicing anything, I went within. I took several deep breaths while still in bed, reminded myself that these were just thoughts that I didn't have any control of while sleeping. BUT NOW I GET TO CHOOSE. So I breathed and envisioned us having a good morning, remembered what it felt like to have his warm body cuddled up next to mine, and then I breathed some more. I let the emotions flow through me. Didn't try to fight them. Noticed that anger and annoyance were visiting me as unwelcome bedmates. And then I giggled. Giggled at how back in the day I would have totally picked a fight with him as a cathartic release. But now, I get to choose, to lean into my practices and be accountable for my energy and my emotions.

The law of attraction is real my friends. That anger could have easily attracted a crummy morning that started with my partner getting under my skin through no fault of his own. But guess what, you have agency. I have agency. I CHOOSE MY LIBERATION from habits, and thoughts, and emotions that do not serve me. AND THEN I MOVED INTO ACTION.
.
.
Please do not use the Law of Attraction or "sending good energy or white light" to keep you from the doing the work to be accountable or from moving into action when you see something is off. Do not let it stop you from the real work it takes to be an ally or use it to discount personal responsibility in perpetuating systems that serve you and oppress others.
.
.
Namaste beloved, and stay WOKE AF.
