How to Deal with Toxic People

Written by Sherrie Locke on 12 Caban, November 2014.

We have all had to deal with toxic people at one point or another in our lives. It’s not the obvious that I will be addressing in this article.

I am referring to the insidious, sometime even so called “fun” people in our lives. People who are dealing with (or totally ignoring) their addictions. They may be alcoholics or sympathy junkies, they may be addicted to failure or criticism or racism. They may say they want something out of life, but is their behavior really in alignment with their goal?

There are a lot of people who truly believe that sarcasm or stating what bad things can happen in any situation are speaking the truth. Well, this is not the case. It is their truth and they will manifest it. It is not your truth, so don’t confuse this point. They are creating that very thing in their own lives, and if you don’t want it to leak over to you then get away from them. They are toxic and only wish to spread that toxicity to you and everything you do simply by being in your life. Get rid of them now, before you suffer for having them around you in any way shape or form.

Some people say that you can’t pick your family and must stay in a battle with them to keep the peace. Do you see what is wrong with this picture? How can you depend on a family member, an employee or even a friend if what comes out of their mouth is not totally on point with what you wish to manifest in your own life, or if there is a small window that you can interact with them due to some addiction, these are not healthy people, this WILL NOT work. Distance yourself as far as possible from the source or suffer the consequences.

We are in a time in the evolution of the planet when what we think, say and feel reverberates though everything we are creating and is made manifest VERY quickly, so be MINDFUL of what is coming out of your mouth, what you are feeling and if that expression is in alignment with what you wish to manifest.

We are the end of this lunar phase and the end of the Scorpio energies (at least the overall zodiacal sign in Western astrology). This can be a good time, once and for all, to clear the table and get on with what you want to manifest and do. Make sure your words match what you want to see or just say nothing. If you have any addictions, put them to rest once and for all and get on with your life. You might just save a couple of relationships you say you care about. You might have to sacrifice some relationships you thought were important to you. You will be better off all the way around by making this sacrifice.

Full Moon November 6, 2014

Written by Sherrie Locke on 11 Akabal and 12 Net, November 2014

This full moon occurs in the sign of Taurus (in Western astrology). It is the first full moon after the eclipse cycle and solar eclipse (on this last new moon) on October 23/24, 2014. This full moon occurs at 14 degrees Taurus 26 minutes, 5:23 PM on the East Coast, 2:23PM on the West Coast or 4:23 PM here in Guatemala.

How has your life shifted in the last two weeks? What has changed? What is the center of your attention? Is there a new component? A new focus? A new interest or person? Now that you have a good idea what that is, now is the time to let go of anything that does not serve the new you and certainly time to let go of any self limitation and fear based clinging to old ideas, concepts or programming.

Remember, full moons break impasses. What do you want to break free of and move forward into? This may still take some time, but at least you have a better picture of what you DO want and I am most certain a good idea of what is holding you back. So use this energy to break free, with clear intent for your future. Rather than thinking of all the ways things could not work, be open to how things CAN go right and you truly can (and will) manifest your heart’s desire, if you are diligent and true to yourself for the next few weeks and months.

While the moon visits Taurus, she asks us to focus on what is of true value and importance and release what is not. This is the theme of the Taurus full moon Nov 06/07. Building the new, cleansing. Sun in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries also occurs on full moon day, and this inconjunct just repeats the theme of the last two days. Identify which limitations and restrictions you want to release so you can break through to the new. Use the energy of the Taurus full moon to let go (read my post on letting go). Letting go can be easy, and remember, you are fully supported by the Universe. The only person that stands in your way is you. So just do it, you will surprised at the results.

Let go and let the Universe do its job to bring you your heart’s desire.
