The other day I was in the store doing my grocery shopping. I like to go when the store just opens as there are little to no customers. It gives me the chance to browse the fresh produce area quietly. But also, pick fresh produces that has not been handled too many times.
As I was going to the cashier area, a line started to form which was unusual. I was standing quietly behind a lady. She turned to me with an unfriendly face. I looked at her and smiled right back at her. She instead sent more negative energy towards me.
It didn’t faze me at all, I looked at the cashier. We greeted each other with a big smile. Again, the lady in front of me turned around with a somber look on her face. I smiled again, she turned her back to me than walked to pick up her groceries.
I approached the cashier, we started to laugh and talk a little. Before I left, I wished her a good day. While I was leaving the same lady was this time, by the water, refilling her bottles with the same look she continued to stare at me.
I just smiled, all the negative energy never entered my personal space. I had made sure I was in my personal field bathed by the love of the Universe.
I do, at times, found that a simple smile, a nice talk and gesture towards someone else goes a long way. Sending negative energy to someone else never worked it always comes back to you with twice the speed.
It was unfortunate for this lady to not elevate her energy. Sometimes we can have bad days but if we are living in constant negativity our world is becoming darker. I couldn’t see her beautiful spirit. I saw instead unhappiness.
Sometimes people feel walking around with frustration and unhappiness and feeling down, is a way of life, but not so. We need to find a way each day to switch and bring more positivity into our lives. Being positive and happy, regardless of our situation, is better for our Spirit and the people we meet on an everyday basis.
A simple gesture, a thank you even a smile can help you get there.
So why are you looking at me this way?
