Dr. — My ass…!
No this is not a new Jackson Browne song…
This was the comment waiting for me today from one of my YouTube videos.
I created the video for fun (technology can be amazing), to share what I know, and as a way to promote this blog. In the description and the video, I identify myself as "Dr. Drew Rozell."
This was a calculated move on my part.
After all, I am a doctor. I have a bona fide Ph.D. in psychology from Syracuse University. I earned that sucker. It’s not a mail order degree, some sort sketchy of "doctorate of universal metaphysical divinity studies", or a degree in physiology like "Dr. Laura."
My point is, I consciously identified myself as "Dr. Drew" because I wanted people to think about me in a certain way. I’m smart. I’m credible. I have a "real" degree. Listen to me.
I knew when I included that title that my energy wasn’t too clean. In other words, I was aware that I had some concern about how people thought of me.
"Yes, this attraction stuff and dowsing rods may seem a little woo-woo folks, but I assure you, I AM a doctor and you can trust me."
As this was the energy I was projecting, I cannot say I was shocked at the 3-word comment from the internet stranger —
"Dr. — my ass."
And yes, I felt a slight twinge inside as I read those words. The arrow, while not a direct hit, found at least part of its mark.
I attracted the person who picked up on my niggling concern about my credibility and reflected it back to me. Actually, I’ve gotten a few such notes in my inbox. People I do not know who go out of their way to question my credibility. Energetically, we’re a match. We fit like a lock and key.
Just a reminder, here. Our energy always does the talking for us and the universe is one big mirror. When things come into your life that don’t feel so good, do not get caught in the illusion that the real problem lies outside out yourself. Thinking about what a jerk this person is to send me a cowardly e-mail gets me nowhere.
My job is to clean up my energy so that I have no resonance with any sort of concerns with what other people think of me.
That’s true freedom. The place where full self-expression lives too…
Onward and upward,
— Dr. Miass
