Q: Allana, I need a little guidance and a lot of patience. My mother has been staying with us for awhile due to a pipe burst in her home. I love her but she complains about EVERYTHING all the time. I try to counter it by telling her to be grateful in hopes that it will get her to stop but she says she is complaining to herself and keeps talking. It is such an energy drainer! I don’t want to be rude but it is starting to take a toll on my positive attitude. The one that took me years to achieve thanks to you and your videos. Can you work your magic and help me through this please?
A: Clearly the damage is that this is disrupting your positivity. On the pro side, she is one heck of a spiritual teacher here. This is a hardcore lesson that just fell in your lap. This is an invitiation to take on the practice of allowance.
