The gift of personal responsibility

gift of the heart

This “theme” has been coming up for me lately. I have been reflecting on this a lot. I have always loved to help others. It gives me great joy to be of service. But one of the things I have been reflecting on is how much giving is too much. I AM sure we all know people in our life that seem to need a bit more “help” then others. They look to us for advice or assistance in one form or another. And though I feel part of my purpose in life is to support and guide others, I realize there are two sides to every coin. Even with support and guidance the other person or persons will still have to participate in their own life. They have a personal responsibility to themselves.

When the “role” we take on of support and guidance begins to cross that fine line into constant care taking and problem fixing, we then have to ask the question, are we really still helping? The truth is our choices create our reality. So what reality are we creating when we take someone else’s reality and make it our own? No one wants to see anyone suffer or struggle, but just like a caterpillars transformation into a butterfly, sometimes the struggle is in fact necessary for their own transformation.

We are here on earth for the chance to experience the growth of our soul. What a beautiful and empowering gift to give to another then for them to discover their own majestic BEing! I can’t speak for anyone else but how can I know what is best for anyone else, when I AM still discovering what is best for me?

What’s with all the chaos?

Many have witnessed the “chaos” that is taking place in their life as well as in the world. It can be disconcerting to experience and cause us to feel a great deal of anxiety. My hope is to help eleviate some of that anxiety.

Anytime Change is occuring, we will first experience what will be perceived as chaos. But what is happening is a breakdown of “the old” energetic blueprints. You cannot lay “the new” which is the change occuring, on top of “the old”. Hence the appearance of chaos, as the old is breaking down to make space for the new. In other words, you cannot build a new building (life experience) on an old shakey foundation. I like to look at all of this upheaval as a transformation.

Though we may not always understand what is happening in that moment, it is happening for the greater good of All. It is the way of the Divine. Even though these times can test us to our limits, know that you have the strength and courage to persevere. The key is to listen to your heart and follow its guidance. When we begin to practice this, any perceived obstacle can be overcome. Once on the other side of the obstacle, the joy experienced, knowing what you have accomplished will be truly amazing. A job well done.
