Perhaps you’re experiencing what we did: We were lost and feeling incomplete and empty. Inner peace and happiness were rare temporary blips in an otherwise mediocre existence. We were certain there was more to life, but had no idea how to uncover it.

After years of inner exploration, humility and healing, life started coming together. Massive energetic and paradigm shifts led to increased harmony and joyfulness. Happiness and fulfillment was no longer unattainable. It was here now.

Our mission is to streamline this path to happiness and spiritual awakening and make it attainable for everyone who is willing to put forth the effort.

1. How to Deal with Toxic People: Do you know someone close to you who is always negative or complaining? Maybe you know someone who's always creating drama are playing the victim. These folks may also regularly engage in low frequency habits like drinking, drugs, pessimism or aggression. Being too close to someone who lives under this stormy rain cloud can be challenging and sometimes even detrimental to your overall well being. It can leave you feeling drained on edge, negative, disheartened and even depressed. These kinds of folks are often referred to as toxic people. If you're wondering how to deal with toxic people, you're not alone. I get asked this question a lot. This video will help you understand what's going on energetically and teach you how to protect yourself. You'll also learn why a person is toxic. Three ways to engage with a toxic person, how to stay aligned in the presence of toxicity, how to overcome a toxicity cloud and how to transmute toxic energy off yourself and others in the violet flame guided meditation. Oh, I am so excited to share with all this powerful information with you. Let's get started 2. The Toxicity Cloud: let's start by breaking down the toxic person a bit. First of all, it's not actually the person that's toxic. Rather, what you dislike and are sensitive to is their energetic X. Let me explain more. All people are inherently good. Their natural essence is love energy. However, as we move through Earth School, which, in case you didn't notice, is pretty tough stuff. We can adopt thoughts, collect unprocessed emotional energy and slip into unhealthy habits, which all impacts our overall frequency. The toxicity we recognize in others is more accurately, like a toxicity cloud hovering around them. It's an energetic byproduct of living a low frequency life. The toxicity cloud is created like this. Negative thinking easily spirals in tow. Uncomfortable emotions, which produces more negative thoughts, resulting in more painful emotions. Under the weight of this pain, there's an attempt to find comfort. It's easier to choose actions or substances that provide ah, quick relief from the discomfort instead of following ones highest good. This pattern eventually establishes into a habit. As unhealthy habits continue to form, the toxicity cloud grows darker and more dense. It can even attract negative external energies, which make themselves at home in this low frequency environment, but it's important to remember that the person's divine light is still present. They are a good, whole amazing human being, but their light is being dimmed by the toxicity cloud, and although it is very uncomfortable to be around a toxicity cloud, it's far worse to be inside it. This heavy energy becomes the filter through which they experience the world. It skews how they see and interpret life events, putting a much darker tint on everything. It can cause great suffering and be quite painful to live underneath a toxicity cloud in the next lesson. All explain how you know if you're being impacted by toxicity cloud or if you may be hosting one yourself, see in the next lesson. 3. The Negative Impacts of a Toxicity Cloud: often people with super dense toxicity clouds don't even realize one's hanging on them. It's usually not created suddenly or overnight. Rather, the density has accumulated over time, making it hard to recognize they're unaware that they come across as negative or critical that they're vibes air bringing down the room, for example, Have you ever acted negatively or sounded critical without realizing it? Until someone pointed it out to you? The toxicity cloud has a way of engulfing us and distorting our reality. Thankfully, those who love us can bring our attention to this sneaky cloud so we can start taking positive actions to dissolve it. Now when you encounter someone with a toxicity cloud, there were a few common symptoms that arise. You may experience a dip in energy levels. I feel utterly drained or experience temporary, joyless nous, disharmony or arguments may erupt in the company of a toxicity cloud. Some people may be unwittingly pulled into drama or encouraged to go against their highest good, and it doesn't stop there. Being around negative low frequency energy can deteriorate your physical health negatively impact your mood, self confidence and self acceptance, lower motivation and keep you from your life's purpose. Create aggressive, unpredictable emotional outbursts, block intuitive guidance, disrupt a creative flow or process. Make gratitude, appreciation and joy. Difficult to experience. But what if the person with the toxicity cloud is your boss or your spouse or even your mother in law? In the next lesson, you'll learn how to interact with someone when they're carrying this low frequency ball of energy without going to the dark side. 4. 3 Ways to Engage with a Toxicity Cloud: So how can you withstand a toxicity cloud and come out balanced and unaffected? And what if one is attached to your office mates or your mother in law or even your partner ? Here's some pointers on how to stay balanced, positive and maintain your personal frequency. Number one lead with compassion. Remember, living within a dense toxicity cloud is uncomfortable and even painful. Those hosting a cloud are suffering and don't know how to feel better. They don't have great awareness of how they're impacting others because the density of the cloud distorts their perception. Simply maintaining this high consciousness awareness will help keep clear boundaries and disentangle your energetic from theirs. Instead of fueling the cloud with thoughts of dislike or disapproval or disgust, try affirming the qualities you appreciate about them. Highlight positive aspects and applaud them when they're acting in a supportive, uplifting and respectful manner. Number two. Create a protective, energetic bubble. Use your power of awareness and imagination to protect yourself from the harmful energetic of the toxicity cloud. You start by simply asking your light beings or angels for extra protection. Then imagine a bright bubble completely surrounding you. Inside it is your safe space. The only thing that can get through that bubble is love. In the guided meditation coming up, you'll learn a powerful method to transform and purify toxic energy that's on yourself and others. Number three Raise the frequency of the space. The toxicity cloud has a very low frequency counteracted directly by consciously choosing to keep your frequency high. You can check out the razor frequency course for even more information, but for now here just a few ways to get started. Choose to stay positive, upbeat and find the humor of the situation. Come into the present moment and take a few deep breaths. Beam love and light from your heart into the world. Try utilizing physical world tools like essential oils or classical music. Minimize other low frequency outputs, such as making sure if a television has to be on, it's on something that's uplifting and heart centered. There may be times where you need to clear yourself or discharge toxic energy and raise your frequency. One of the best easiest ways to do this is to head into nature. Put your bare feet in the grass, feel the wind on your skin and soak up the sun. In the next lesson, you'll learn how to stay aligned in the presence of a toxicity cloud and to continue to make decisions that are right for you. 5. How to Stay Aligned in the Presence of a Toxicity Cloud: take a few minutes to reflect on the individuals in your life with a dense toxicity cloud. Do they negatively influence you the choices you make or keep you from your best self? The toxicity cloud has a way of knowing and exploiting our weaknesses.

At the very least, you can simply excuse yourself to the restroom in order to regain a higher frequency before reconnecting with them. You may also have to have an honest, non blaming conversation about setting new boundaries. You might need to tell them that you're trying really hard to be positive, and sometimes that can be challenging around them. Or you may choose to say that you're choosing to live.
