Growing up do you remember the phrase, "tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who YOU are?"
I believe most of us understood it as the crowd we were associated with reflected who we were to others.
However, it is now that I come to understand a different perspective to this popular phrase. Not only do our friends represent us. But they also become our mirrors and manifestation of our realities.
For example if you have friends who are often negative and gossiping or enjoy creating drama and playing victim roles.
At some point you too will be sucked into that behavior. Even if it's temporary.
It is difficult not to fall prey to the behavior that you choose to surround yourself with. The question I often hear: "So, I'm I supposed to avoid this friends? ...soon enough I won't have anyone to confide in!" Yes, it does sound radical that you clean out your closet and remove all the negativity.
You need to keep in mind that you have free will and choices. If you choose to stay within that circle, you may enjoy the drama and been the victim (even if you do not admit it to yourself). But for those who are interested in having a more balanced lifestyle, even a little bit of destructive behavior will contaminate your environment and mood if you have not yet learned how to still maintain balance among chaos. (I seen this happen again and again). I coach my clients to address a healthier lifestyle as a WHOLE using Angel therapy and help them realize they have the power to create their realities. (Feel free to visit my Angel Therapy page to set up a free consultation, mention this blog).
In a different senerio, as your personality changes and your interest develops away from what you used to share with old friends. You will find yourself not finding activities or even company as rewarding as it used to be. Therefore, you will begin to cut the cords that you used to share. Now it is important to understand that simply because you are attracted to a different set of people and experiences, it does not mean you are a "bad friend" to those you used to love spending time with. Memories and experiences will always be part of your heart.
In order to manifest more experiences that you are attracted to, you need to be able to see a mirror in the company you keep.
Using my own life as an example, I have had 5 childhood friends since I was 12 years old. As I dealt with my own awareness of a different consciousness I realized that I had lost touch with four of them. Not because they were negative, but simply because we were no longer on the same page of interest's. We all took on different journeys, I love them dearly and I have amazing memories of them. But no longer spend time with them as I used to. I send them love and hold them fondly in my heart.
Once I truly admitted my experiences I decided to attract new friends and like minded individuals. I asked my angels to please bring bring to my life those who will help me continue growing and be able to express my truthful higher self freely. I have since that day met and gotten to know higher consciousness individuals. With each step I surrender and trust, the more my world shifts and I continue attracting new set of friends, teachers and students.
For anyone who is experiencing this shift or would like to live a more happy and balance lifestyle, it is OK to cut your cords with the negativity that surrounds you. Trust that in order to have new beginnings you will have to let go of old patterns and behaviors. ...and yes, maybe even those friendships who do not serve your highest good.
