It’s that time again… I get eMail. Boy do I get eMail. Some of you have started your own spiritual centers or business and have sent me messages about eMails like this one. You’ve asked how I might handle this situation or respond to that one.
When I get an off the wall email, I’m trying to share them and share how I handle responding to them. Sometimes not responding isn’t an option. People are coming to you out of a sincere perspective that you might be able to help them with their problem, or question. If you’re going to put yourself out there with a spiritual shingle and claiming to be a teacher or minister/priest or any type of expert, then you’re going to have to find a way to respond to everyone. No matter how crazy or annoying their email to you might be.

If you try to fight every situation as it crosses your path, you’ll wear yourself out and deplete your energies. You don’t have to fight everyone at every turn for reasons that aren’t even your own. Some of the battles you’re engaging in aren’t even yours to take on in the first place.
Choose your battles carefully and make sure you’re picking the ones that need to be fought in order to take you forward. The battles that keep you in the past aren’t worth your time and they certainly aren’t worth your efforts. So let them go and turn around to face the future.
Select the battles that will break down the barriers and overcome the obstacles that are in your way to success. Overcome the fears and self doubts you’re carrying around within. Stop the negative self talk! Especially the doubting talk that was put on your shoulders by others. Their limitations of you are not yours to carry. Their inability to stand tall and reach for their dreams are not your baggage to own. Continue reading →
