Detach from Negativity with Chigger Medicine
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
Are you taking things too personally? Is something getting under your skin? If so, what might help?
Healing Action: Decide that your reactions matter by growing a thicker skin. You don’t have to take on negativity, especially when it isn’t really about you.
Growing A Thick Skin
Chiggers are mites that dig under the skin and lay eggs.
They irritate and cause you to itch voraciously.
Unfortunately, the more you scratch –
the more they spread and the worse it gets.
Parasites of this sort come in many forms:
the gossiping neighbor next door,
the rebellious child,
the critical boss,
and the nagging mate.
It’s as if all they want is to get under your skin.
Anger and apathy only keeps the fire burning.
The way to handle parasitic people is to
cut them off from their fuel supply –
detach from your emotions.
Be firm, be courteous, agree with them
and hand them back their problems.
When you offer no resistance,
there is nothing left for them to feed on.

Further Exploration into Chigger Medicine:
You are very easily irritated by your current circumstance. It would be advisable for you to transform your irritation into an energy that will fuel your dreams instead of destroying them. This fire (your irritation) causes your energy to leak and gives you an excuse to act foolishly by blaming, arguing, gossiping or feeling sorry for yourself. When you do these things you are really fueling a destructive fire within yourself.
Learn to be more quiet and peaceful when you fall out of balance. Stop whatever you are doing and take a deep breath. Take several, in fact. Then stop focusing on the feeling of irritation and concentrate your thoughts on the person or situation itself. Don’t let yourself get caught up in trying to fix it or make it work. The time isn’t right for action. It’s time to get to the bottom of why you are reacting the way you are.
Look at the Circle and ask your heart: “What is really irritating me about this?” Then just start writing whatever comes into your head. Don’t stop the flow of thoughts until they are complete. More questions or irritations may come up. Keep writing until you get to the bottom of the matter. The time you spend now is well worth it.
Irritations that return over and over again are there to remind you that something is a problem. Release any conditioning or agreements you may have to ignore the message or unknowingly internalize negativity. Imagine that you can open yourself up and expel whatever is bugging you by sending that irritation up to the Sun for transformation.
