Though you may feel ashamed of something you have done, something that happened to you, or something others think about you, if you sit long enough with the shame it becomes apparent that it is nothing more than energy within you trying to get your attention, alerting you to something deeper about yourself. Don’t get caught by the temptation to stay stuck in the vortex of your shameful self but let the energy of it take you beyond it. Use it as your power to think, discriminate, and change yourself. Use that which holds you back as the energy to take you forward. Transform negative energy into positive energy and transform yourself too. Everything is energy, but you decide what meaning gets attached to it and what attitude you take towards it. Something you perceive as bad may in fact be really good!
