Why Envy & Resentment Are A Big Lesson

Why you need to pay attention to those feelings of envy, jealousy, resentment and judgement.

These huge negative feelings are weighing you down, keeping you stuck and they are also blocking you from welcoming abundance into your life


We've all been there, witnessing somebody you know and love achieving their goals, getting the dream job, buying the dream home, marrying their Mr / Mrs right and all you can feel is jealous, envy or resentment.

In this situation if you feel anything other than genuinely happy for them then there is work to be done and a lesson to learn.


Firstly, know that it is human nature to feel this way so be kind to yourself and don’t beat yourself up.


We all have these feelings from time to time. Beating yourself up is not going to help you to work through how you are feeling. And pushing the feelings aside may make you feel better in the short term, but in the long run they will re surface over and over again.


Secondly, know that there is a message in those feelings. It’s most likely that there is a mirror being held up to you. If you explore deeper ask yourself why you are feeling that way.



1. Is it because you want the same things

2. Is it because you don’t think they deserve it or you feel they’re not worthy of it?

3. Is it because you don’t think you’re worthy of it?

4. You feel like you work really hard and don’t achieve your goals and it seems to come to them with such ease

5. Is it because their beliefs don't align with yours so you begin to questions yourself?


Feeling this way towards somebody that you love is a reflection on your own insecurities. Like I say we all have them and this isn't about never feeling these things .... it is about learning to understand the message from them.


If you try to ignore how you feel or you dwell on them for too long you aren't going to resolve them.


Feeling this way doesn't make you a 'bad' person. Judging yourself for feeling this way will only keep you stuck and repeating these patterns of behavior.


Knowing that the emotions you are feeling are valid and they are your inner guidance, your intuition, your soul speaking to you and letting you know that there is something going on with you that you need to pay attention to.


Are you even aware of your own Soul Aligned goals. (If you're not sure about how to align to your Soul Goals then join The Harmony Hive where you can explore these in your own time https://www.facebook.com/groups/harmonyhive)


Do you know that this life that you think you aspire to.... the life that you see others living it you feel envy and resentment....is in fact the life you really want to live?


Sometimes we can just want something that we see somebody else has without really exploring if it is for us.

Sometimes we feel that they are getting to live their dream life because they are a better person than us.

These are all stories that we tell ourselves and they keep you stuck because they keep you in a lack mindset and if you believe that lack mindset the decisions that you make will come from that place of lack.


Imagine living your very best life right now. Imagine that you have everything gong on that you ever dreamed of. Imagine how you will feel and look, what you would be doing every day.

Now, imagine now hearing from a close friend that they had just had a huge success in their business or personal life ...would that version of you feel resentful or envy of your friend? No, of course you wouldn't.


So it's time to come from that place of abundance.


* Know you are worthy

* Know that by seeing others achieve it then it means it is totally possible for you

* Know that you aren't living that life because you aren't aligned with it. So do the work and find out what you are aligned to. If the life you are living now isn't what you wrote about in your journal 3 years ago or doesn't include any of the images from your vision board then you are not aligned and you do not believe that it is totally possible for you.


Imagine living your very best life right now. Imagine that you have everything gong on that you ever dreamed of. Imagine how you will feel and look, what you would be doing every day.

Now, imagine now hearing from a close friend that they had just had a huge success in their business or personal life ...would that version of you feel resentful or envy of your friend? No, of course you wouldn't.

Listen up …. You are worthy… they are worthy … it is possible for you as it is for them ….. It is just that they believe it is and they take action.
