I picture a new idea as a soap bubble, floating in the air.
Energetically, it’s fragile and able to be taken by a gust of wind or some other gentle shift in the environment.
In order to preserve an idea, energetically, it is important to protect its energetic environment.
And the way that can be done is to keep it to oneself until it has grown strong enough that mild fluctuations in the environment will not effect its stability.
One of the most valuable lessons I have learned is that a new thought has an energy of it’s own, but it must be protected.
If the idea is shared with those that do not support the idea or that do not believe it can be pulled off (like a plan or decision) their thought energy will then be part of the energy of the idea.
But unfortunately, it will be the part that can make it go awry.
For example, let’s say you are going to write a book. That idea is whole and complete and intact. You are inspired.
Then you go and tell John Doe that you are going to write a book. It is possible then for John to pull you off course by a single comment, or even to support you face to face and then mentally hope that you will fail or think that you will fail.
John’s ability to do this is tenfold if you are empathic or psychic, as many indigo adults are, and are not able to filter out others or distinguish between what “stuff” is yours and what “stuff” belongs to other people.
I’m writing this at a time in my life where there are many projects going on. Some are still in their fledgling stages… some are further along.
And a few have been derailed because it was too tempting to me to spread the word about what I am up to because I am excited about it.
And in this modern age, things like facebook and twitter make it so easy to shout your plans and ideas from the rooftops prematurely.
In my case, I did so, and I started to feel a shift in the way I felt about the idea.
I felt insecure and like I wasn’t that into it anymore.
And then I realized that I had just posted something about it on a social networking site and that that was swaying my attitude about my idea.
Knowing this, I have cleared energy of others around the idea (you can clear anything energetically) and since then I have been back on track.
As I have gotten older, I have also learned to dig in deep and push myself beyond what I am hearing in the ether.
The one upside to sharing ideas is when it is truly with a helpful and supportive person. But sometimes you never know. (see my next post)
