You come to me and say you are dealing with a devastating illness and you are scared. I am not a doctor, but I can listen and send you love.
You come to me worried about your investments. I am not a financial planner, but I can listen and send you love.
You come to me in fear of your marriage collapsing. I am not a marriage counselor, but I can listen and send you love.
You come to me as you’ve just lost your job. I don’t have a job to give you, but I can listen and send you love.
Has any of your family or friends come to you with fears and worries? Or perhaps these are feelings you are personally dealing with. You don’t want those you love to feel scared, worried, or fearful, yet, the scenarios seem overwhelming. What can you as one person do?
You CAN listen. You CAN be compassionate. You CAN send them love. Empathy and compassion are amazing traits to feel connected to others. Take a moment and look at how you express empathy and compassion with yourself and others. Be empathetic and compassionate, but I encourage you not to join in the worry wart syndrome. Rather than spending time thinking of those you love in difficult situations and worrying about them, every time their name comes into your mind, send them love. When it’s fear in the form of illness, send them love and healing thoughts rather than worrying and more fear. When people discuss the current economy situation, especially if they are personally dealing with challenges due to it, send them love rather than conversing about how bad things seem to be. Send your family, friends, and world citizen’s love, for if you believe that what you put out there comes back to you – send love and be ready to receive it.
Moving forward, I invite you to help by:
Appreciating the fact that life is filled with choices and you get to choose yours as others get to choose theirs – choose from a space of love.
Loving yourself, others, and life – when you live in a space of love, all is well.
Asking yourself, what would love do or what would love say? When you speak from love, you should feel empowered. If it’s a disempowered feeling, perhaps fear has crept in. Love can and does say no when it’s needed.
Mostly, I invite you to become aware of your thoughts. If you want more love for you and others, send out loving thoughts. If you want great health for you and others, send out thoughts of health. If you want more abundance for you and others, send out thoughts of abundance.
Until next week, I send you love, health, and abundance to help you on your journey.
I am filled with love for myself, for others, and for life.
