"The Law of the Garbage Truck!"

There are times in life that we experience events and situations that are meant to expand our knowledge and wisdom, build our character and empathy, and give us courage and determination!

These times can also be extremely taxing, upsetting and very nearly character destroying dependent upon the circumstances.

When individuals are in full "victim" mode (blame and its everyone else's fault - taking no responsibility for their own actions), they can and usually do PROJECT their 'stuff' onto innocent others, and these projections may be quite venomous, affecting us deeply and long lastingly if we don't do something to move and clear what we have received as quickly as possible.

If victims are not willing to become responsible for their own thoughts, words, feelings and actions, then it is up to us to be on our guard for our own well being! Now this is not to frighten us but to initiate and follow our own inner knowing or IN - tuition.

Being totally aware and mindful of what is occurring can be a very quick vaccination to what is ailing! It's also about receiving respect and living each and every day with integrity!

Also, some in full victim hood can also step into bullying behaviour in order to make themselves feel better and more in control and this can take many forms.

In essence, if you are not enjoying the presence of any one person for any reason, then it is time to extricate yourself. You may feel fearful, intimidated, assaulted whether verbally or physically, attacked, nagged, teased, on the receiving end of derogatory conversation aimed at you, spreading of rumours or lies, being embarrassed, having outrageous or uncomfortable demands of you and/or they are saying hurtful things - these are ALL forms of bullying and need not be endured!

This is where understanding what is occurring and following a very inspirational action can assist us in not only moving through these times but be more prepared for any future infections!

Being AWAKE and AWARE are two major keys and then deciding a plan of action to negate the experience!

Here's a little but very important story for you that may very well help in these situations. It's well worth remembering!

"The Law of the Garbage Truck'

The story goes like this -

'One day, I hopped into a taxi and took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly, a black car, jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed the brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. I mean, he was really friendly.

So I asked, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!" This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck'

He explained, "Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you.

NEVER take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on with the routine life." Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home or on the streets."

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so......

'Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't.'

* As very rightly said quote:- Life is 10% what you make and 90% how you take!"


Introducing myself - My name is Virginia Ede and over the years, since I began my Natural Therapies business back in 2005, my passion has always been focused upon assisting people to discover a release from pain, stress, anxiety and other such physical issues through the means of gentle modalities such as Bowen Therapy, Reiki and Australian Bush Flowers.

As is in most cases, things shift, change and grow and the journey that I now share with others has transcended beyond being just about addressing the physical pains and discomforts that we all experience at times,

It now includes the reconnecting to the simplicity of our true authentic being, initiating those marvellous healing processes that are much more achievable as well as sustainable.

I have created Maggies Farm to be a safe haven that encourages the processes of all manners of healing and the transformation that follows. ​

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a deep and loving connection with animals and it is now that I am more able to combine my specialised practitioner skills with the intuitive and instinctive expertise of my animal family.

Please come and join me for what will surely be an unforgettable personal experience!
