I would like to share a couple of experiences I had in the last year that I can now look back and reflect on. In the last 5years I have learnt to stand my ground. I have been involved with bringing truth, integrity and transparency to the fore front regarding my working environment. I will say I have fought and stood my ground mind you this has brought me physical/mental pressures along with this. My working environment is very toxic and even though I could have left for some reason I stayed and decided to stand and be in truth.
I have realised when these situations came about and were dealt to me in a very bullying way I stood my ground. I could have just cowered and went with the norm and let them happen BUT my inner being was saying no. Now I know that this can be seen as an ego thing and maybe it was however, my inner being was so strong (on a human being scale) I knew this behaviour was not good.
On one occasion in a big meeting with 30+ staff a guy stood up and expressed an opinion that everyone in the room was thinking regarding an anonymous survey. The manager shut him down and no one was will to stand up and support this. I did at the end and when I confirmed the person's opinion/question on behalf of the 29 people I confirmed this guy was saying what people were thinking. Because I was so passionate about confirming this guys opinion I noticed while I was talking the person next to me moving away in an upper body bending motion. I am always trying to be aware of my energy and later asked this female I noticed her move away from me which she confirmed that the energy from me was full on but no negative just powerful.
On another note, I had another situation which was not nice and I stood my ground and while I was talking with such immense energy that I could feel emanating from my body which was about my rights as an employee I saw three people move away from me.
This doesn't mean I was out of control, it just meant that on a human level I had rights I felt were justified and this over rided people trying to blind sight me. I spoke to another person in a spiritual level outside of work and advised on whet happened which confirmed at THAT point in time, my personal power came out.
So I thought I would share this, as I know someone somewhere will relate to this.
I know there are people who are fluffy duffy sprititual but hey would they stand up for a person not being treated right? Does fluffy duffy mean that you are spiritual? No way, why stop being yourself and pretending to be someone your not. Really human kind is about being treated right, would these people stand up for you or is it too much drama? Nothing is perfect we are who we are.
