The more you move into and exist from within the energies of surrender, acceptance, appreciation and gratitude, the less those clingy, sticky, life-sucking energies can stay with you, attach to you, and have any sort of influence over you. You become slippery and unattainable to those harsh, vampiric, negative, spiny urchins of malevolence and you regain your creative resources.
As we progress through our journey in a lifetime, we learn lessons, constantly. We have easy lessons, and hard lessons. The harder ones generally, unfortunately, are attached to strong emotional aspects, and those are the most difficult to let go.
