Judgement Issues?

In the realm of consciousness, a judgement is a classification. It is a thought that classifies people and things as right or wrong, good or bad, fair or unfair when measured against what we believe. Iyanla 

What we believe is right or wrong for us are foundations and pillars of how we live, how we make decisions, how we choose our tribe. Many times what we believe came from a combination of tradition, stories passed down, religion, family, and experience. There are times however that the information we base our life choices on have changed or they no longer serve us. Additionally, we use the information as a basis for our interaction with others. When the other person is different, does something different, acts different, dresses different, speaks different,sometimes we get thrown off. We react sometimes in fear, most times in fear because fear can manifest itself in so many different ways. We believe what they are doing is wrong, or bad or unfair or flip side, good, great and wonderful compared to what we believe

So what if they do not share your beliefs? Are they wrong, bad, good, great or are they just different?

Many times when we respond negatively it is in response to something that triggers us. I have learnt that it is an opportunity to bring the feeling to the forefront and focus on how it can be healed.

What are some of your triggers when judging a situation?

Ask yourself why?

Then analyse whether the beliefs that brought them to the fore still serve you
