Being an empath is not easy. In my line of work, it is a double edged sword. It helps me to connect to my clients, understand their needs and intuitively guide them to their highest healing. Yet as a human being in the world we live in today it can be brutal to the heart. For those astrologically inclined, I’m a Pisces sun and Scorpio moon. Whenever I tell people who understand the science of astrology they usually cringe. I am beyond sensitive, and I go deep, deeper than most. Not only do I go there, that’s where I live. Sometimes I think I can feel the suffering of the hearts of the entire world. Rare is a day when I am not crying, and don’t get me wrong they are tears of joy as well, as I am witness to the amazing people in this world that continue to do kind and selfless acts. I have learned however, I cannot under any circumstances watch the news, unless I want to feel complete fear, helplessness and despair and become a blubbering mess. And what’s the point of that. Is that helping the world? No, it is not. Being compassionate and having empathy is a lot different than having sympathy. Sympathy keeps you down in the pit of despair with the negativity. Empathy raises people up. By feeling sorry for others’ suffering does help them at all. I am sure there are many people reading this now that can relate to me. If you have a heart and haven’t been fully desensitized yet, you can’t help but feeling bad and getting caught up in the atrocities and needless suffering that exists in the world. What does help then? What can we do? Well, for starters try not to dwell in it and talk about it. I know that’s hard but just as gossiping is not a virtuous trait, gossiping about the darkness in the world just keeps it alive. Everything is energy. What you focus on you create. We are powerful creative creators and we have created this mess of a world we live in. It is our job as responsible spiritual/human beings to uncreate the darkness and bring back the light. When you enter a dark room, the only thing you need to do is flip the switch and the light comes on. That is what is happening now on the planet. Individuals, communities and societies are waking up, they are switching on their light. We are waking up the the truth of who we are and how to really make a lasting change. That change has to happen with a shift in consciousness, or it won’t last. To quote big Albert, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” Isn’t it about time we get that? As individuals and as a whole? It is said that when you are uplifted you uplift 30,000 people. It’s time we started uplifting each other. Miracles are possible and as a matter of fact they become a way of life when we finally wake up to who we really are and the power we truly have; and we use that power for the good of all. My task as I see it is to be as peaceful, kind and true to myself, and be the light for others. I must eradicate anger, negativity, judgment, criticism, and self betrayal from my mind and my heart… for it is a form of violence. And then I try to influence and heal others in my little corner of the Universe as best as I can. In other words: heal yourself, heal the world. From that space we can then unite our intentions, prayers and energy by sending waves of love and light to areas of the world that need it. Take Mexico for example. It was suppose to be the worst storm/hurricane that they have ever seen. But not one person was killed! That was a miracle, truly. How did that happen? People from all over the world prayed, sent their intentions and energy to Mexico. Can we make a difference? Yes we can.
“If there is peace in the heart, there will be beauty in the character
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.”
– Lao Tse
WE ARE ONE. ACT LIKE IT.
