Jealousy can take many different forms. The feeling rare its ugly head in different relationships, it has a far-reaching effect and the worst thing is that the people it affects do not even realise it. As it takes hold of you the feeling reaches every fibre of your being, and what people do is they project this jealousy onto other people. Jealousy is a subtle, intelligent energy, which keeps us in a black hole. Many of us when we are experiencing the throes of jealousy do not realise that we are in the hold of a very destructive force. We find lots of intelligent reasons why we should defend ourselves or project our jealousy onto others. We can become blind and insensitive.
I do not think there is any human being that have never experienced some form jealousy, great or small. So if we do not want to be responsible for it, “The jealousy”, then this destructive force starts to affect other innocent people around us. There are some that are conscious and able to realise what is happening to them when this force takes over, but there are also those who continue to ignore it, which eventually leads to their own destruction.
I remember my first love, I was just a teenager. The jealousy that was born from that was because I was so afraid to lose her, and eventually my own jealousy created a situation whereby we parted. Of course in my life I have moments of jealousy, if I did not I would not be human. But, I have found that by acknowledging it and saying: I know you are there, and ask that feeling why it has visited me, what is the message it is carrying, then I can start take responsibility for it and start taking control of it. If I sit with that feeling and let it speak to me it offers me the reason why I am jealous, and therefore I can neutralise that negative energy, which helps me find a solution.
I have seen jealousy bring people to their knees and destroy their lives. I have seen the power of it when it turns to hatred and it is not a pretty sight. I have witnessed ordinary people lose their way and whose health has suffered both mentally and physically, because of this negative force. It is important to stop the flow as this energy increases, because of all the positive things within us that it overrides.
We also must not to forget all the people who become the victim of jealousy in its’ varying forms, and what devastating effect has on their lives. That is something that the jealous person never thinks about, but there is a saying: What you give out will always come back to you. There will always be consequences for our actions, consciously or unconsciously.
