My Sister and I Are Not

Speaking to Each Other

Exercise: “My sister and I had an argument over a year ago, and we haven’t spoken to one another since. Sometimes I think I should just pick up the phone and call her, but then I remember how angry she made me when we last talked, and I don’t want to take a chance on going back to those angry feelings again. I don’t feel good about not talking to her, but it feels a lot better than how I felt back then.

“She started the argument, and then she wouldn’t even try to understand my point of view. She’s always been stubborn, she always thinks that she’s right, and I’ve always given in to her just to keep the peace. But I’m tired of always having to be the one who gives in, so I just don’t call her.”

Most people want to be loved. They want to be appreciated, and they want to be understood. But the trouble with those desires is that you cannot control whether someone else appreciates or loves or understands.

We have noticed that it feels every bit as good to love or appreciate or understand as it does to be loved or appreciated or understood; and the most interesting thing about that is, you have complete control over that. You have the ability to love someone just because you have decided that you want to. And while what they have done may have upset you so much that you do not feel you even want to try to love them, we want you to understand that unless you do love them, you will hold yourself out of vibrational alignment with yourself—because, like it or not, your Inner Being does love them.

Since they are the subjects of your thoughts, and since you feel horrible when you focus upon them, you blame them for the horrible way you feel. That is reason enough to stay mad at them, for they seem to be the reason you feel so awful. If they would be different, you would feel better, but since they refuse to be different, you think you can’t feel better … so they seem to hold the power over the way you feel. No wonder you are mad at them: You have given them your most prized possession—the key to your own power.

When you remember that you can control the way you feel, no matter what, you can regain your own power, and then you can come back into alignment with who-you-really-are. And when you are in alignment with who-you-really-are, it is easier to put their actions, words, and attitudes into the proper perspective. Those things are not your business. Even their thoughts about you are not your business.

Even if the hurt from a relationship reaches far back into your childhood, you can, with far less effort than you might think, bring yourself into alignment, because you do not have to go back in time and rethink everything and sort it all out and find remedies and solutions.
