How to Deal with Difficult People

Weekly Blog

Today we will have a look at how to deal with difficult people.  

We all have them – those people who bug us, who we complain about, who frustrate us.

People can play massive mind games with us.  When we are polite, we call them ‘difficult’; when we aren’t polite we call them much worse.

None the less they can hamper us, hinder us and even make us sick when we let them get to us too much.  They may be our siblings, our spouses, our co-workers, our bosses or the people at the DMV.

How do you deal with these people?  Ignore them?  Lose sleep?  Get a stomach ache?  Disown them?  Quit your job?

Once upon a time, I too had a situation (among many—but this was the one that turned it around for me) – where someone was being very difficult in a project at corporate world work that was creating great issues for the project’s completion.

One day I came home frustrated and angry beyond belief.  My Divine Guidance Team is always with me and they certainly were that day.  I came home mad as a wet cat. (Normally cats don’t like water and a wet cat is an angry full-clawed hissing type creature you don’t want to be near!).

I came home and was cussing up a blue streak (yes, I do occasionally do this – it lets off steam!).

My Team inquired what was wrong in a rather calm fashion, as they are warranted to do.  One particular Team member, Master Yeshua, was the front-runner spokesperson that day.  I told him in no uncertain terms what was wrong, throwing my purse to the floor and stomping my feet as a child in a tantrum would do.

I finally said to him, “What should I do about this situation?”  His answer came unexpectedly.  

“Bless him,” he said.

“What!??!!”  I yelled back (it was cool to do so – he’s used to it).  “I can’t bless him!!” I yelled and went on for another fifteen minute rant and rave.  Finally I let him speak again and again he answered,

“Bless him.”  

At this point I knew for certain I was channeling an Acended Master, for I would never in my current state of mind come up with this incessant, peacefully, spoken answer.

I went into another fit of anger, but I was winding down.  It only lasted five minutes.

“Are you through?” he finally asked as I collapsed into a near-by chair.  

“Yes,” I said, exhausted.  

“Then you must dig deep down inside yourself and bless this person,” Master Yeshua stated.  “For in doing so you will dissolve the block that is holding you from your solution.”

I pondered this for a moment.  “Do I have to?” I whined.  I can be stubborn when I want to.

“Do you wish to solve your issue with this individual?”

“Yes,” I said.

“Then you must bless him,” came the answer again.

And so with this answer at hand, I ponder the Master’s answer.  

The next day, I had a meeting with the difficult person, along with the rest of the work team.  They too were fed up with the situation and were borderline difficult themselves.  The situation had been a toll on all of us.

As the project manager droned on about timelines and duties, I focused on Mr. Difficult.  I looked around the table. And I looked towards the ceiling (heavenwards) and silently, to myself, I said,

“Dear Angels, God, Master Yeshua and the rest of the Team, Please let me see this situation with new eyes and an open heart.  Let me heal myself and the others.  Let the bridge of knowledge between us flow openly. Let understanding flow between all parties and let there be peace among the team.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Then I dug deep into myself (and deep is an understatement) and had to find all that peace, understanding and even love among fellow team mates.  I finally found that sweet spot and sent out waves of beautiful white light, love and blessings to all, especially Mr. Difficult.  

I blessed them all and asked the angels and Team to bless them all, especially Mr. Difficult.

Then I sat and waited.  

I didn’t have to wait long – in less than 20 minutes, if that, the situation began turning around.  I expressed myself in the meeting not with frustration, but with renew understanding and sympathy.  Especially of Mr. Difficult, who turned out didn’t have a clue of what was being asked of him.  We helped him with this process going forward.

The dam was broken and the project progress started to flow again after weeks of backup.

Mr. Difficult became Mr. Cooperative.  The project, while it still had its bumps, preceded and finally finished only one week late.  

I am convinced it was because I did as Master Yeshua instructed: I blessed the situation and the people involved.  

I am also convinced that anyone can take this method and use it to their advantage.  For I have done so a number of times since then with positive results.

The next time you have a difficult situation, stop and dig deep (this may take some doing) and bless the person.    

Many ask: “What would Jesus do?” when dealing with difficult people.  I know the answer: Bless them.

(Master Yeshua is also known as Jesus Christ.)

8 Tips to Keep Communication Open

During the holiday season, we all need to remember to communicate better.

How are you showing up when you talk with others?

Communication is key when you’re attempting to get your message across to others.  This is true for our jobs as well as our friendships, family relationships and loved ones relationships.  Too often we speak in vague, even abbreviated language to each other which lead to half-heard conversations and half-understood meanings.

Between our social media and our advertising billion dollar industry alone we are bombarded with misleading, propagandized and non-truthful messages all day long.

How much conversation do you truly have with another person anymore?

As a member of what I have long termed ‘corporate world’ I see this type of ‘non-communication’ communication all the time.   It takes email after email just to get a simple point across or a simple discussion to be had.  And half the time, employees are so much in a rush, they only half read the email at best.  And thus miscommunication – and misunderstanding is born.  I call this: ‘non-communication’ communication.

IMG_1947Parents of teenagers are well aware of ‘non-communication’ communication.  Ask a teen what he’s doing and he will shrug and probably said, “Nuthin’.”   Ask him a more direct question and she’ll answer or whine, “I don’t know,” followed often with a roll of their eyes.

That kind of behavior from my niece in her teenage years drove me nuts  — bless her patient mother!  I’m just now beginning to establish relations with my niece now that she’s now 65 years old!

Husbands and wives get into fights because they don’t communicate.  A grunt does not a conversation make.  A whine or a shrill voice will only make another shut down.  Walls are created when communications break down.

Suddenly you are like two countries –fighting about semantics and dealing with bruised egos.  Over what?  Is it really that important?  Or are we holding on to false belief systems that no longer serve us?

This upcoming week is Thanksgiving week — how are you and your loved ones plan to celebrate?  Will it start with good conversational habits?  Maybe it’s time to start communicating effectively.

Here’s are 8 communication tips to get started:

  •  Try to really stop and listen to each other.
  • Don’t attempt to figure out how you’re going to respond and what you’re going to say while the conversation in in play.  Listen and then form an opinion or response when it’s your turn to speak.
  • Gain clarity if a meaning is unclear.
  • Do it in a neutral tone.
  • Don’t get angry or frustrated.
  • If the conversation is important, write down salient points that can be discussed.
  • Learn to compromise.
  • Let your ego go and know you don’t always have to be right.

Communication is key to relationships – no matter who they are with.  Opening yourself up to good conversation etiquette can help you in your work, your family life, your love life and with your friends.

Be kind to yourself and others this holiday season and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

How are you communicating with others?
Do you practice good conversation etiquette?
Are your conversations working for or against you?

Share your communication practices with us and let’s learn together how to change habits for the better!  Practice allowing yourself to attract that which you desire and wish to manifest by learning from others.  It starts with you!   What are you telling the Universe?

Remember: The Universe always agrees with you.  What are you telling it?

DGT Speaks – Shine Your Light

Illuminated Engagements
Learn to Shine Your Light to the World
This week the Divine Guidance Team wanted to post on the subject of Shine Your Light.  Here then is the Divine Guidance Team:
Hello!  We have been having our channel, Blake, reread and study Kryon’s writings from 2003 and 2013 recently.  Kyron is a celestial group of intelligent non-physical beings of angelic realms, channeled by Lee Carroll.  He has been around since 1989, if not a bit beforehand.  Kryon technically is not male (or female) but rather a combination of these two energies.  Of course we could say the same about ourselves.
We have had Blake read Kryon for the information that was being sent to you in the early 2000’s as well as more recently for a reason.  From the beginning dialogue with you until his most recent discussions, Kryon’s viewpoints and lectures have changed with the times.  They are not static or stayed in one direction, but have deviated according to what is currently happening on your planet.  This is because your planet is constantly in motion and time is not linear, but rather fluid in nature.  You also live in a multi-dimensional world which is in constant flux and fluidity. It’s constantly in motion.  So Kryon is correct when his messages and discussion change with the times.
Our message also changes too as your planet continue to evolve in its current direction.  What we may have spoken of ten years ago when we first started transmitting to our channel may no longer hold true as your world has moved into a new direction.  At the time of our answers, your planet was in one time frame/dimension and progressing in a singular fashion, for the most part.  Since then your planet has moved dimensionally into a different realm or dimension.  Again, yours is a very multi-dimensional world.  It makes it hard which direction you will wind up in at any given point in time.
One of the aspects of your planet is the free will/choice conundrum.  Many others (living physical beings) in your universe do not have the amount of freedom in free will/choice you have on the planet you call Earth.  The amount of free will and choice you have is almost unique and is cause for much of your planet’s direction, i.e. so as the people go, so does your planet.
This is why we are so keen to teach you the Path of Illumination and Light.  For as you shine your Light into the dark places on Earth, you diminish the darkness and expose the darkness transmuting into in to Light, both spiritually and physically; both figuratively and literally.  This was also exposed by Kryon and was revealed to our channel recently.
We do what we can to provide messages to you – whether it is talk with you directly or whether it is to provide additional research and reading material to you.  Whatever it takes, as we say.
Remember to shine your Light and Love to dark places (places of fear and anger) by simply meditating daily.  Ask the angels to illuminate the darkness in people’s minds and souls. Picture a huge spotlight hanging in the sky above places of war, fear and anger and turn on the spotlight onto these places. Send love to these people and places, through intention and prayer.
By doing this just five minutes a day, you help lift the world to a new and better understanding of itself.  You raise the planet’s vibration to a higher level.  In turn, you lift yourself to a new level of love and service to God and His Earth.   All of us are winners in the Light for your individual efforts.
Collect more than one person and hold group meditations on a regular basis and you all become winner in the Light on a group basis.
You are one voice, one person.  But just one person can and does make a difference.  Never forget this.  One voice in the darkness, Lighting the Way, has the power to make a profound difference in your world.  You have the power; you have the love and support of God and the angels behind you.  Start today and shine your Light.
Thank you!
