This is a message from Spirit Mentors Xara & Friends translated and relayed by Mandy Wildman:
“Guilt is simply resistance. It is you resisting the luxury of feeling good because you think your happiness will attract the jealously and disapproval of others whose opinions you currently consider to be more valuable to you than your own well-being.
In other words, guilt comes about as a product of attaching your happiness to the way other people regard you. We recommend deciding that YOU feel good about you, regardless of what the peanut gallery might or might not think.
It is interesting to note that you can knock yourself off balance when you decide to worry about what others think of you. You can be going along quite happily and then you see something which you decide displeases you. In that moment you are not feeling quite so happy because you are resisting what you saw that generated that resistant, displeased feeling.
We recommend that you place yourself in a ‘no judgment zone’ where you decide that you will not judge people or things and that you will have no reaction to those who seem to be judging you.
Try this for a week and see how it works for you. Ideally you will feel cheerful and productive and at peace and all those good feelings that contribute to your overall sense of well-being.”
