How do you feel when someone calls you a mean name?
Stop and think. What names have you been called that are upsetting to you?
Who called you that? How did you feel?
How do you feel when someone puts you down?
Would you like to learn how to keep hateful names from hurting you?
People who need to call names and do put downs have negative energy in them. People who hurt others have dark, yucky stuff stuck in them and they don’t know what to do with it. So they try to throw it out on others by calling names.
Negative energy is similar to a rock or spear or an arrow being thrown at you. If someone threw a slime ball at you, would you catch it? What if someone threw a porcupine at you, would you catch it. Why do you have to catch ugly words that someone tries to hurt you with?
Others may throw their negative energy at you but you do not have to let them into your thoughts and body. You are in charge of what comes into your self.
Helper Words To Keep Negative Energy Away:
- I’m in charge of what I take into my self.
- I’m not going to catch any slime balls.
- I choose not to take any negative energy from others.
