There is something that I am having a really difficult time overcoming, and I need advice.
I feel that one of my major lessons is to learn how to maintain my positivity in the presence of negativity. For example, I am getting pretty good at having my default mood being happily content. I'm thankful and compassionate, right where I want to be. But let's say I suddenly find myself stuck in a room with a tv, and that tv is showing a very low-vibe reality show. You know, the kind where people yell and cuss at each other and they have to bleep out the swear words. Being in the same room as that shakes me up. I get very irritated and my thoughts automatically become resentful. I say loving things to myself to try to keep my vibes elevated, but it doesn't work.
But here's the thing: the world is made up of many levels of higher and lower vibrations, and they are everywhere. I know that many articles recommend avoiding exposing oneself to lower vibrations, and I can see the logic behind that. But... that's not the point of being here. Jesus said that he hung out with sinners because a doctor doesn't come to heal the healthy. Or something like that. I'm by no means trying to call myself a messiah, but do you get my point? How can I help others raise their vibrations if I can't maintain my own when I'm around lower vibrations?
Can someone please give me advice?
