I am in a situation at work where changes in technology are taking place at a very rapid pace. More and more is expected of me and I feel I’m subject to subtle intimidation (from my boss) in spite of taking the lead trying to learn the system, training other staff and trying very hard to maintain standards of service to our Customers. He points out to little errors in front of other staff members (even errors not made by me). I also get a sense of his own insecurities. This situation is contributing to my low self-esteem not only at work, but also in my personal life. I’m not sure if I’m just being over-sensitive or if the situation is real. Any enlightenment as to what lies ahead will be much appreciated.
The guide’s response:
Your perception is correct, my blessed one. You recognize that he is threatened by your light and that he probably feels very insecure about the world you live in with these technologies. The best way to turn the tables here is to be filled with light and smiles and happiness. Instead of being fearful, respond with “you are so smart, or you are so right, or I am so happy to be learning from you.” Turn the tables, dearest, and you will disarm this one and this one will feel not so threatened.
MJ is also asking what lies ahead?
Whatever MJ needs to learn. I know, I know– you like to hear about exactly what is going to happen and at what time but that isn’t what it is about. It is all about learning and growing, so don’t deviate from something that looks difficult. Get in there. Don’t run from something that makes you somewhat frightened or threatened. Stand still in it and take a deep breath and move forward.
