If in doubt check it out!
Nevertheless, it is still prudent to do a cleansing practice, like have a healing or do inner reflection technique to erase the troublesome thoughts. Because they have a habit of breeding, coming back again unless we are proactive in ‘weeding the garden of the mind’.
Years ago we learned about a tool called the Co-operative Mode. One of the principles used is that we have a conversation to check out ‘paranoid fantasies’ with the person concerned, to find out what is really going on. I am not talking about actual paranoia in the medical sense, just the tendency that our egos have of thinking the worst. By checking things out, we can avoid a lot of conflict and maintain great relationships. At this time of year when many are tired and just wanting to get through to the holidays, it is even more important than normal to do the inner housekeeping – with a dash of good humour to boot.
Blessings and love
