Dealing with haters

Recommended Posts

I had been feeling really confident that my Reiki practice was going to help lots of people (still do feel that way), and I was looking forward to teaching others to practice Reiki too with my new online course. I placed a facebook ad, knowing that more people could find me that way. The VERY FIRST contact I got from that ad was someone who posted on my facebook page that I need to ask Jesus for forgiveness because I am trafficing with the devil!!! 

I have heard other energy healers talk about encounters with people like that, but this was my first time.

Have any of you had to deal with anything like that? How did you handle it?

I just blocked him and deleted the post, figuring the less energy I gave it the better.

Yes, Luma, sorry you had to go through it.  Mine was on my Intuitive Psychic Messenger.  She said "she only believed in Jesus and God and never mess with devil worshipers".  I kindly asked her how my believing that energy exists everywhere different?  Plus all religions have capacity for loving kindness and that is what I practice no matter what I do.  I asked her why she thought I was questioning her religion?  She didn't have an answer and decided it was ok then.  I just said it's ok you do not want to hear from me but she doesn't have to think I am evil just because I feel different things since I was a child.  She understood once I explained I felt things since young and intuition if very real.  I went against my gut feelings and was hurt badly many times, until lesson learned after 30 years.  Never will I go back no matter what anyone said.  she we kind after that.  Most people just do not understand that god/divine/angels/energy/vibrations/love/happiness   all is the same.  Same as ashwa, god, allah, etc.  The higher power exists.  I have deleted a couple people.  You will have so many more that are great people.  Hang in there.

@luma - I can feel how unsettling this would be, particularly when it's your first response after putting yourself out there as you did.

In some cases, I agree that the resistance that rises from another person can be met with curiosity and kindness, probing the belief that says energy medicine is in opposition with faith. At other times, it's equally valid to ignore the comment and carry on with your own intuition and purpose. I think it could also help to consider the state of being of the person who meets you with such a comment - are they operating from love or from fear? Chances are their comments are rooted in fear.

That is terrible. I don’t understand  why people are so mean and righteous. I am baptized Christian but also embrace everything good out there. The past conditioning is strong , I think it is great to have open curiosity. Everything good surely cannot be wrong. The strong voices of conditioning creates fear. For my quests I ask questions for knowledge not condemnation. I hope reiki, mindfulness, mantras etc. help me (which they do) along with it I tend to the conditioning I was raised. I am sorry that the haters are the ones that preach love and speak of let God judge but yet they are judging and striking out viciously. It is hypocritical?hmm

I feel it is healthy to have some opposition to have us each re-evaluate our position on our own beliefs or morals.  It make us even stronger in the sense of knowing and acknowledgement.  Giving confidence to the correcting of the past conditioning.  The longer it is done the past conditioning disappears.   It is a great feeling when it falls off.  Be comfortable and have faith in what you do and feel as right within heart and soul.  Blessings.

I believe the word hate belongs to the unconscious and judging mind, some might say the ego. If we can try to see that everyone is doing their best at each moment with their present level of awareness. It’s not always easy as the so called haters mind is trying to pull at your consciousness to agree with it and ultimately cause conflict. If we try not to react which isn’t always easy the space we create from non reaction serves us for when it arises again which in an unpredictable world will always happen.

@David - Yes I think you are quite right David. It's always good to remember that things are not always as they seem. Quite commonly, what underlies 'hating' is misunderstanding, lack of awareness... but in any case, it is largely fear-based. As you said, it isn't always easy to not react, but it does get easier with time. And quite often, the 'other side' softens when we refrain from engaging on that level.

Thank you for your input!

I haven't personally come across this non belief but it is out there. Being brought up in a Catholic home in a very Catholic Country there is still the belief that healing and working with energy is going against God. Last Year an Irish Bishop publicly condemned Reiki. 

Thankfully it was not made into a big drama but created ripples for a while. God is non judgemental as we were thought in school and churches. Growing up believing God would punish us if we disobeyed him .It does take time for these fears we hold onto to be get go of!  But there is a huge shift in consciousness and beliefs are changing with every passing year.   Every person  is only coming from  a place of fear or lack of understanding Luma.  I too work with energy  and am learning more every day. It is enlightening !

    • @Jess MarieSnakes are not my favorite but anything small with lots of legs that move fast scare me.  Like cockroaches, spiders etc.  Just watching the little legs moving all over is so nasty to watch.  I grab whatever is around and smash, smash, etc.   No mercy there.  Sorry little things.  I get scared.   My dreams are scary also, even today. I am surprised I am still afraid of things. 
    • @Gillian SangerIt always is great to "know" that spring will come.  That seasonal "knowing" . a consistency.   A pattern, or habit of Mother Nature.  This helps settle my inner self to believe in things.  I "know" spring will come and the colorful world will burst out.  The buds on the trees and bushes.  White and red, berries etc.  Even the weeds turn a great color and try to exist inside everything else.   Today I walked outside to gather all the puppy toys.  I got her a bunch of beanie toys she loves.  Her mouth is small so she just tries to find a squeaky in it.  It is funny to watch her biting it.  She will run outside with it and toss it in the air and catch it to toss again.  Running in circles.  Run as fast as possible around things outside.  Or a big circle.  She is a Peek-a-Pom.    The ground was wet from rain.  So were the toys but she doesn't care.  she still wanted them.  The air smelled so "good".  Someone must have cut their grass because it smelled almost like fresh alfalfa being cut.  A sweet smell.  Takes me back to my childhood riding on a raker.  I am excited for spring, in about a month now.     Here is Teddy. She is a clown.
    • Boundaries can be difficult.  Learning to uphold my own was very hard to learn.  I always gave, helped, shared and never new about them.  After a few things happened that were not planned, then it became much more apparent.  Growing up our parents help us determine how close people come to us and sometimes what we communicate about and see.   Keeping it short.  I teach now that a boundary helps us know what we can expect to control.  Without being overwhelmed by "everything".  It is much easier to understand a smaller space and not the whole world.  I teach to concentrate on how wide our arms reach.  If we can control what is within this boundary, our self in the middle, then try to go outside this boundary.   For me being empathic I have to stay home to set boundaries.  People have a tendency to come to me and discuss their life issues and want help, find a path to resolution.  Or I feel obligated to help them so I set the boundary.  It is very painful if I do not and want to help the world.  I am trying to control and help myself first.   I do not expect people I do not know to be within my arms length.  Only close loved ones, dear friends.  People I know.      Other boundaries are health, politics and religion.  I limit all these things and rarely bring them up.  I usually don't have to because there are always those who feel the need to.  I feel these are personal items.  I have my opinion on it, but rather than get tangled up and stressed out it is not worth wasting my energy.  AND joining all the organizations that help the planet, animals, and other needy causes.  I understand that they have to be done, but other people are much better able to than I am.  I have no problem admitting that.  Due to my live and events it does not work.  I want to but, no.   I still battle this control of within my arms.  This creates a responsibility.  Sometimes I lack in this area.
