We made a mistake the other night and watched what turned out to be a very violent movie. We usually avoid violence and never watch slasher movies, but this movie had some good actors in it and we thought it would be okay. Wrong! From the very first scene I knew we should have turned it off but we didn’t. You know how some movies just feel evil from the start? This was one of them. I should have followed my instinct, and about half an hour later we did turn it off and I was in tears. The scene that finally did it was so graphic and so realistic that I can’t believe someone thought it was worth putting on film. I have spent the past few days trying to get the images out of my head.
So here’s the thing about movies: there can be an energy from them that is like an etheric assault. It’s done on purpose, so you have to protect yourself from it. What happened to me was that I was almost immediately attacked energetically because the disturbing scene in the movie hit me in my 3rd chakra and left it vulnerable to attack. The chat group helped me on Sunday and I was finally able to stop thinking about that awful scene. But today I was challenged again. I have blown up a lot of roses in the past few days, and run my energy constantly, just trying to get out from under the continued assault. I’ve played my emerald singing bowl, I’ve used my golden lemurian, but nothing worked for more than 5 minutes.
Finally, I remembered to put on some bracelets! I don’t know why sometimes it takes me so long to do the obvious. I put on my Heart Protection, Love & Compassion, and Emotional Healing bracelets – all heart stones. Stevo told me to forgive myself for letting the movie images get to me. I also decided to forgive the people that made the movie for making something so evil. Within about 10 minutes my dark mood lifted considerably and I was able to take a deep breath for the first time in two days. I haven’t obsessed about that movie since.
So you have to be careful. It’s risky to expose yourself to any kind of media because it is so controlled and is used as a weapon against us. We usually are very picky about what we will watch. We don’t watch commercial TV at all, haven’t for about 17 years. We select movies and TV shows on Netflix or Amazon that we feel have some kind of good purpose. But sometimes we get caught. I thought I’d better blog about this to show you what can happen if you aren’t discerning about what you let into your space. It can happen to anyone. Someone has been running my energy for me since I saw that movie. That is completely unacceptable and I’ve had to fight to get control again. It was a good reminder.
