Recognizing when a Problem is not Your Responsibility

Butterfly with Broken WingThere are situations that you will encounter in which it seems as though you are powerless to lend a hand. When facing a dilemma such as this, you can share your love, an empathetic ear, and your kindness. Gifts of the heart can have a profound effect on those that are struggling with life-altering decisions and emotionally painful conditions.

Choices that are Not Yours to Make
No matter how much you want to help someone, there are times when the only help you can offer comes from the heart. This may be because the choices that need to be made in the situation are not yours to make. A prime example would be relationship decisions that friends or relatives need to act upon, such as whether the time has come to break-up or divorce. Other examples include tough choices concerning medical conditions and the mental or emotional health of loved ones. It can be challenging to be an observer to someone else’s pain, especially when it seems as though you can do nothing to ease it.

An Important Contribution
As an observer of a difficult situation that your loved ones are experiencing, you can offer your love, kindness, your listening skills, and prayers. This kind of support can be an invaluable source of positive energy that is not only needed, but also desired. Advice and insight can also be offered; however, the person receiving it may or may not be receptive to it. This may be because he or she is having a hard time incorporating a new perspective. Stubbornness, a strong desire to control outcomes, lack of trust, or an ingrained sense of loyalty are often obstacles to a person’s ability to move beyond a problem. Moreover, even if you offer advice, it may not be an appropriate fit for the situation at hand because you may not be privy to all of the details. Do your best to avoid taking offense if your loved one does not utilize your well-meaning solutions because, ultimately, each person is responsible for his or her own choices. We all must live with the consequences of the decisions that we make. As an alternative to dispensing advice, try listening with empathy and allowing the person to talk about his or her feelings. This may be enough to help him or her to relieve some of the pressure surrounding the situation that is causing the angst.

Love Heals
Do your best not to underestimate or minimize the effect and power of love. Its positive energy can heal a broken heart, provide hope for the future, and offer comfort to those who are experiencing pain. Love is shared and communicated with one another through the heart of our soul. You can send that positive energy to your loved ones with your thoughts and prayers, as well as with physical expressions, such as a hug or soothing touch.

Even when it seems as though there is little that you can offer to someone who is struggling or suffering, remember that love is one of the best gifts that you can give…and it is an energy that you have an infinite supply of to share.

Namaste!

How we can be Angels on Earth

Divine Love

As we greet each day, we have hopes and dreams that we would like to see fulfilled whether it is for a new job, for a loved one to get well, or to find people with whom we can develop positive relationships, etc. In each of our hearts, we hold our individual dreams that we would love to see realized in a way that would benefit the good of all.

As Spirits on a human journey, we are here to help each other bring those life-affirming dreams to fruition – to be Angels on Earth by assisting and supporting one another during times of need, as well as in times of joy.

Sometimes, without our even knowing it, we may be called upon by God or the Angels to answer the prayers of others. For instance, your interactions with others may provide answers to problems you didn’t know they had and/or your random acts of kindness may bring happiness to a heart that has been riddled with sadness.

At other times, you may make conscious choices to help those in need. In my work as a Spirit Medium, I have made the decision to dedicate myself to the healing of Spirit here on Earth as a vessel through which Spirit in Heaven communicates. Others of you may have chosen to be a doctor or a nurse. Not everyone’s life purpose is to serve in this way; however, each one of us can contribute to the well-being of others in our own unique ways.

For example, we can choose to volunteer our time and/or resources to people who need us. This may take the form of donating gently used clothes and items, lending a hand to a friend, or giving a gift of money to a charity.

This Easter Sunday, I dedicated my time to cooking meals for people who are unable to leave their homes due to illness or injuries. I was inspired to do this after volunteering to cook in the Aid For Friends kitchen (www.AidforFriends.org) earlier this week. This local charity not only provides meals, but also companionship for people who have limited contact with the world outside of their doors.

As I thought about my experience at Aid for Friends, I realized that the donation of my time and skills was helping more than the recipients of the meals. I was also assisting with the hopes and dreams of the people who are involved with the running of the charity, as well as my own desire to bring joy and comfort to others.

I believe in the expression “what goes around, comes around.” I know that as I am helping people, others are helping me. The same happens for you. The return on your investment of love into the Spirit and well-being of others will be returned to you in a multitude of ways. When it does, be sure to share your appreciation and gratitude to the universe for the gifts that you have been given – both big and small. By doing so, you are recognizing the efforts and sacrifices that others have willingly made on your behalf.

This week, I give gratitude to God and the Angels for granting me the time and resources to share the love in my heart with all of us in Spirit here on Earth and in Heaven. It is my hope and my prayer that you, too, have many reasons to give and receive gratitude everyday of your life as you fulfill your life purposes as Angels on Earth.

With Light and Love,
Karen
