Do you ever get the sense of being totally overwhelmed? So much ‘stuff’ going on, so much to do, not enough time in the day … and no one else seems to be there when you need help? Maybe there are people about – it’s just that you have become so used to doing things on your own (or maybe even refusing to ask – preferring things done your own way) that it doesn’t occur to call out for help. But please remember that you are never alone. Your angels are always there and always come to your assistance. It’s just that they cannot interfere, they have to be invited in.
I know that feeling of ‘over-whelm’ very well. Especially if I’ve allowed my emotional self to get involved in the drama of other people’s journeys and issues. Even the best of us can let it happen occasionally ad especially when it is close to home!
So when this happens and I’m exhausted, or things are going array, I know I have to step back, take a breather, re-assess my priorities, and try to gain an insight into the bigger picture. I go away from the clammer, take a walk, and ask myself “exactly what is really going on here?”
What is it that really stops us from asking for help? I have a suspicion that at the heart of it is a twitching ego that whispers in our ear. Our ego could be saying any number of things, but the most common things I come across in my work (even though people don’t always realise it is actually their “ego talking” is that we might lose control, or that the job won’t be done exactly to our liking, or that someone else might get the credit at the end of our hard work. Some of us might need to soften up on these ideas a little.
Remember that old saying: “If you want a job doing properly, then do it yourself”? I was brought up on that one. It fed into my already independent free spirit and I soon learned the tiring behaviour pattern of believing that I was quite capable of doing everything I needed done myself. Of course there are problems with this attitude and I’ve learned big lessons as I grow older and wiser. Firstly, if you turn away help people can feel rejected. It may also give the impression that you are so capable you wouldn’t need any help anyway.
When we turn away help we are turning away a gift. If we do that too many times we may find we are not offered that gift again. Then we struggle on for a little longer until at last we change our attitude.
This happens on a spiritual level too. We tell the angelic realms what we need or desire in our thoughts, our daydreams, which create energy. Every request is heard. Yet when the answer is given we don’t often hear it, or its not exactly what we thought it might be, it doesn’t suit us at the time. So we ignore or reject or dismiss it.
The angels will keep on and on trying to help and guide us. Then they step back. They wait for us to ‘lighten up’ to understand what’s happening, to see the bigger picture. Once we have stepped out of the situation, and sometimes because the universe has co-created a really challenging situation where we really do have to stop and listen or re-evaluate our life path – we may ask again with a renewed sense of acceptance.
The angels answer every prayer, every request and give guidance and answers every time. We just have to learn to be quiet and listen, or to stop and notice. That offer of help you just turned down? It might just have been angelic intervention. Sometimes the angels know a little better than we do. They see the bigger picture when we can sometimes only see what’s right in front of our face.
I’ve just been having a great conversation with a very spiritual friend about the ‘heaviness’ in our world just now and how helpless and vulnerable it often makes sensitive people feel. Some of us can’t bear watching news programmes any more, or reading the papers. Some very sensitive empaths are picking up despair and painful emotions from the hearts of refugees all over the world, as well as the political issues and powerful decisions being made that impact us all. There is a lot of fear and this creates dark shadows around our world. Yet there is so much good and Light shining in the world too. So many random acts of kinds and gifts of immense generosity . And, has anyone else noticed what lovely young people so many of our current actors, artists pop-stars and musicians are? (Nothing like the egotistical often foul-mouthed, hotel trashing rock-stars of my youth!!) So things are changing, yes, and as ever has been there is light and darkness, yin and yang, good and bad in our world. As Light-workers we all know what to do, keep on the good work!
