Dealing with conflicts in your relationships

Have you noticed, when a new person enters your life, however fleetingly, energies often surface to be dealt with.

If you find yourself in conflict with someone, step back a little, breathe... and let go. Give yourself, and them some space. An inner asking for peace will underpin any initial desire to lash out.

This doesn't mean you will become a doormat, and allow others to walk over you. Rather, you will find that you will be able to stand up for yourself in a grounded, balanced way, rather than adding fuel to the fire.

If you sit with the uncomfortable energy, and simply observe your reactive nature, you will eventually find the 'irritation' calming down as you continue to observe it. Then, when you are more centered in your own being, you will find more space to respond effectively.

As you calm down, go within. Put your hand on your heart, breathe deeply and calmly and say to yourself:

"My co-operation with Divine Order replaces all sense of negative competition and conflict. I love myself and see the highest in myself and the other person."

Say a few times, until the affirmation settles. Practice the 'feeling', rather than just saying the words.

Act, when you feel guided to.
