Toxicity in the work place

Workplaces may have high standards of behaviour they expect between people and to the public. However, they may not live up to what they aspire to, or management may not enforce of the guideline’s they espouse. The toxicity is all around you for your workday.

So, what are the best coping mechanisms to deal with these people and these situations?

We have free will, we do not have to stay connected to toxic people or places. But sometimes this maybe our work place or a person at work. It could even be a relative and we know the saying, “we cannot choose our relatives!”

I sit quietly, and ask Archangel Michael to sever any energy cords attached to my soul, spirit, aura, physical self, or Chakras. I want him to cut the cords and destroy them. I then ask him to fill me up with pure white light and protect me with his energy.

I will do this at the beginning and end of the day, or after being somewhere or with someone I consider toxic. 

You can speak the short mantra or think it. Some people I know wipe their hands over their face, head and upper body as if they were brushing away cords or spider threads while they are thinking the mantra. If they do not want people to see them preform this ritual, an empty meeting room will suffice, even a stall in the washroom!

In the past I have soundlessly said the mantra in a crowded elevator on my way to lunch after meeting with a particularly toxic individual.

I prefer to think of the cords I am cutting as if they were tentacles of an octopus with suction cups that attach to things and hold on tightly. I see Michael removing the suction cups and cutting the tentacles which shrivel up and disappear.

Because these situations and people create worry, guilt, stress, fear, unhappiness and other feelings that drain my energy, I ask that these be taken from me by Archangel Michael with the help of my angels and for them to provide me with rest and happiness.

Finally, I thank all my angels and the Archangel for their help through either through the day to come or the day that has past.

Don’t forget your guardian angels! They are also with you throughout the day, at any time you can call on them to help you with a situation as it occurs or develops.
