For years people have carried around lucky charms to bring them good luck; a lucky rabbits foot or a found four leaf clover. Are they really lucky or is this just a belief…and does it really matter?

I have mentioned in previous posts that I attract people who are “lost souls”. I have never searched for this particular type of person, they just always find me. One of the only explanations I have is that I am a very animated, positive person and I feel they want to be surrounded by this type of energy. It doesn’t matter what the reason, I just love listening, helping or holding their hand. I’m not a therapist or expert in anyway, but in most cases people just want to be heard. However, sometimes when a person decides to talk about their pain, It feel as though this energy has been transferred to me. This part is hard to explain, but anyone who has listened to a hurting friend or family member knows the feelings they are left with once they leave.

Not only have I listened to people going through a hard time, many people have stayed with my family if they needed to. Our home has always been a safe haven for many going through a difficult situation in their life. My eldest son seems to have inherited the “Lost Soul Attraction Gene” as well, which means a few of his friends have lived with us for months at a time in the past. I have always done my best to navigate the different energies in our house, but our newest house guest was a whole different story.

A few months ago a very dear friend of ours tried to take his life. He was found in time, but the days that followed were overwhelming.  Not really having a huge support system, he had no where to recover and heal.  It became very clear to me he needed to come and stay with our family. Once again we opened our home to another lost soul.

Quickly I could feel how much pain our friend was in and what he was going through. It was a dark energy inside him, and one I had truly never encountered before. In the weeks that followed I noticed my energy was shifting. It was nothing he was doing intentionally, he was just trying to share and heal, but for me this was becoming an issue. Sadness, anger and darkness was starting to consume me. My sunny, energetic personality was slowly disappearing and I felt like I was losing control of my own emotions.  Everyone at one time or another can relate to this because we encounter those people who feel good to be around; they improve your mood and vitality. Others are draining; you instinctively want to get away. This subtle energy can be felt inches or feet from your body and is very apparent when it happens. Thank God I have such an amazing husband and friends who recognized that I was on the verge of an emotional breakdown.  After many tears and supportive conversations with friends, I realized I had left myself very unprotected from such strong emotions. It was time to find my force field again!

I have always been a spiritual person and truly believe in the power of rocks, gems and crystals as a healing and protective source. The rock recommended to me, to deal with this particular situation was Angelite.  I carry it everywhere with me and I truly feel it’s protective force field energy. Like the lucky rabbits foot or the found four leaf clover, it works! It honestly doesn’t matter to me if it really has energy or if it’s a psychological thing. My point is, we all experience each other’s energy and we need to be aware of what is actually happening.  Having a support system is key and for some, like me, you may also need a lucky charm or positive stone to feel protected and safe. This is why I created the Positive People Army to become the support system for anyone needing it.  This community is not just for people going through something, but for people supporting someone as well.

My friend is doing much better now and so am I.  Both of us have talked at great length about what we both went through and we have become very mindful of how our energies were affecting each other. In fact, he even wears a crystal quartz I bought him, which has been called a “Master Healer” and feels stronger and protected because of it.  Again it doesn’t matter what your beliefs are…you just have to create your support system and believe in something to get you through this crazy life.
