Healthy Heroes- How to admire in a healthy way, fame & boundaries

So is it OK to have people you admire, or are there situations where that is unhealthy? Yes and YES. This blog post will explain the energy of all that, when admiration is unhealthy and how to keep it healthy and empowering. It's sort of a light wandering ramble, so I hope you enjoy the journey. If you are in the mood for short & to the point, this post is not it. It was inspired by a wonderful client Pooja who commented on my Daniel Sturrige blog post.

Pooja asked:
Hi Janet, I have a bit of a weird question. Is there a way of adopting someone's energy... in a positive way. Like if you admire someone's social skills but know you are lacking and you try to emulate that person. Or from this sports example, if you can imbibe some of Sturrige's energy? Can some energy work help here? Or is that not something that is right or even done?

My reply is:
The healthy version of this, to be inspired by someone, can be done if you have a very healthy and flowing 4th chakra.  Here is my
video playlist about healing your 4th chakra. Then you just see- "Hey he customized his energy for what he wanted to do without even knowing about chakras.  I want to be my best and focus on what qualities I need and customize my energy to be my best with my knowledge of grounding & chakras, physical activity, affirmations, etc.  I will work to be both determined and playful, to be focused but also not take everything too seriously."  Then your attention would go to your goals, your daily habits, your journal, writing down your affirmations, your play, getting back your unique energy, etc.
On the other hand the
unhealthy version of it would be with a less flowing 4th chakra to spend excess energy and thoughts on how he does it, lost in admiration or possibly some envy or jealousy.  This would uncenter you and could get some of your energy in or around his space, and when your energy joins with others doing the same thing it could burden him.  If you find yourself more tending towards envy or low self-esteem I have a free 12min Self-Acceptance meditation that can be downloaded from my free meditations page, or once again my video playlist on the 4th chakra healing. I actually thought about this when I wrote about him.  I double checked with the angels that it was OK to write about his energy, & kept the discussion to his public professional life.  This is how sometimes being in the public eye can be a burden, because people with less flowing 4th chakras often have an invasive curiosity, and the fans in their space become a literal stress on the person they admire.  This is why many celebrities highly value their privacy while still loving their public careers, because in their private time they are trying to get everyone out of their space to feel like themselves again. They are good at their career which is how they got famous. They may even need to remain in the limelight to maintain their position or career, but they may not have the extra strong energy boundaries with others that they suddenly need.

A very tiny version of this happens to me. I am by no means a celebrity or even famous. Maybe I'm micro-famous ;-) but because my skills of hearing angels and clairvoyant reading are an uncommon career path and not so developed in so many others, it does inspire some admiration and even an invasive curiosity. I usually find some of the clients who are impressed by my work hanging out in my energy, in a confused way trying to rethink their last reading or wait for their next reading. This stalls their growth and can burden me. Fortunately part of the reason I'm micro-famous (OK love that term) is because I am good at teaching how to have strong energy boundaries, so I use my own videos, recordings, and techniques I teach to wash people out of my space & to feel better. :-) This is though why before I could only do 10 readings a week, and now only 15 readings a week. On the other hand since I'm basically teaching people how to need me less and less over time, to make a consistent 15 readings a week I still definitely request & appreciate new referrals. I just ask that the referrals be kind-hearted people. :-) Ultimately referrals & video thumbs up & reviews mean more people learn to heal themselves which is crazy good karma for everyone. Plus vehicles like videos and meditations can be used by countless people to create positive change and the angels can just give me extra boundaries protection. The angels make sure there's zero burden to me if tons of people use my meditation recordings and videos each day. They help to make it just a vehicle they can use on their own path. Sometimes angels will get someone to re-hear something I said in a reading in order to give the person a reminder and that is just the angels working with the person's memory so it is totally clean. It's very ironic.

So how do you admire anyone, including me, while being centered and healthy and moving forward? One way is to be very body connected. So you could do gentle stretching as you listen to your reading recording. Feeling the stretches would keep you present, so that you are opening up your own key inner reflective space and clearing energy.

Another way is to practice strong energy boundaries techniques with those you admire. Many only consider that they need strong energy boundaries with those they resist or dislike. So just like in my
strong energy boundaries video playlist you can use a gold sun to call back your unique energy from me and any current or previous mentors you have. You use the gold sun like a magnet and it brings back your energy and then cleans it off so you can shine it back on yourself. Also like in those videos, specifically the Removing Energy Chords video, you can imagine any energy chords that are between you and your mentors and melt them away with gold light, so that you can be inspired & learn only in a clean empowering way.

You can also use an affirmation like
"Angels help me to have clean, strong boundaries with those I admire. Help me to heal my own enthusiasm and motivation and move forward on my own path today." You can do all this with intention, or thought, so don't worry if you can't see energy chords or your angels. For spiritual change, vision is a fun extra you can develop over time, but all things happen also on the level of intention or thought. It does help if you are body-connected or present when you use affirmations, since manifesting requires a harmony between body-mind-and spirit so you could feel your toes wiggle, touch your fingers, or stretch, or as always imagine your own grounding.
