Well, that person that is so far under your skin is your teacher. They are exposing a truth or a lesson that you need to learn or to heal. The crown (seventh) chakra opens us to the guidance, lessons and the teachers that are all around us. Our job is to be open to receiving the lessons as they are presented.
Follow a few steps here to connect with that teacher:
Picture that person right now in your head.
See them doing what really sets you off…doing exactly what gets your goat.
Notice what happens in your body when you think of them. Where do you feel it? What happens to your breath?
Here is the hard part… what are you meant to learn from them? If you really open yourself up, get out of your ego’s way of trying to be right or better than them and out of your high seat of judgment, what is your interaction or relationship with them here to teach you?
Strength to stand up for yourself?
The ability to not take things personally?
Maybe you are lacking the very thing they are exhibiting and because subconsciously you know you want to be more like them, they really upset you.
If you take some time and are really honest with yourself, you will find the lesson that they are in your life to help you learn.
So, thank them, take the lesson and store it in your toolbox of life skills.
And I bet they won’t be quite so annoying to you, now that you realize they are your teacher.
PS- If you’d like that same annoying thing to stop happening to you, really learn the lesson. Because we will keep being served up the same lesson by the Universe until we learn it!
Enjoy this 15 minute yoga practice that focuses on strengthening the muscles of your core. Aside from the obvious external physical benefits of a strong core, there are many other practical, everyday benefits too. A strong core helps your posture, your digestion and energetically balances your third chakra.
