Q: I believe we have the power to heal ourselves and others. And I know I'm a spiritual being and I've experienced some unexplainable things in my life, both bad and good.
But when I have tried to convince family members of my beliefs, they think of me as silly or foolish and consider me to be an embarrassment, which I know I am not.
How do I rid myself of their negativity towards me?
A: Doesn't it feel great to be aware of yourself as a spiritual being! I find it very empowering. I can relate to the situation with your family. I've found over the years that I only share what I sense my family can understand and appreciate. I know it's difficult to not share everything about yourself and not be "seen" by your family. And it's painful to think that your family views you as an embarrassment. Know deep in your heart that they are coming from fear as they don't know themselves as spiritual beings the way you do. Hearing about things that are beyond their conscious experience may trigger their ego fear and judgment response - but you don't have to take it personally. It says more about them than it does about you.
If you can have compassion for them (think of what they are missing out on not realizing they are powerful spiritual beings) and know that they are on their own journey (and will one day or one life-time become conscious of this, but it is there process - not up to others to convince them), this will help you to release their negativity. As you say hello to the spirit in them and rise above their ego comments, this will help support your connection to them. Love, compassion and forgiveness are all self-healing tools.
I also find amusement very helpful. If you can stay centered within your higher, bigger, spiritual self where you are at ease and amused, you will slough off your family's comments and negativity. Like attracts like so over time you will attract like minded people who know and appreciate what you are experiencing. In the meantime, try to find common ground with your family so you can enjoy your time with them (and you may find you spend less time with them once you have created more connections with spiritually minded people).
