Insights About Being Defensive.
When we are being defensive, often times, our solar plexus clinches up or it might be our back, shoulders or some other part of our body. When we are being defensive we close ourselves up tight. Emotionally, it feels negative.
The problem with being defensive is that we cuts ourselves off from the 'organizing intelligence of the universe,' that I call God, that supplies us with the wisdom, guidance and insights we need to handle whatever life throws our way.
The next time you are feeling defensive, ask yourself what you are defending. Chances are, you are defending your feelings so you won't get hurt again but in the process of defending yourself, the irony is, you will get hurt again.
