Greetings, friends! We are glad to have the opportunity to speak with you again today.
We see many millions of you now establishing new and higher levels of inner vibration—which then powerfully affects your outer lives—and we continue to celebrate such, though we understand the pressures you are under now.
We are often asked, for example, how a sensitive person, an empath, is to deal with two great challenges that trouble nearly all Lightworkers.
The first being, How do I deal constructively with the loss and pain experienced by those around me, and by the world in general?
And the second being, How do I deal with the pain of my own past?
This first question is a very great issue, and one that you will have dealt with on varying levels for most of your life.
Even as a child, you noticed those around you who were in trouble—the classmate who always seemed hungry or angry or sad and silent, or whose eyes were often red from crying.
News reports and public service spots showed you images from around the world of those who were struggling to survive against war or hunger, natural disaster, uncured illness, lack of proper housing or education, or other apparently needless forms of suffering.
You often felt the pain of others, as if these were your own problems.
You absorbed their struggle and emotionally—energetically—took it on as your own, as if that would cure or solve or lessen their pain in some way, if you could also carry it.
And yet you know by now that feeling sorrowful for another does not decrease or alleviate their pain.
You have seen that joining another in their grief or shock or depression vibration does not alleviate what they are experiencing—if anything, it only further increases the weight they carry.
You have seen how sitting with a friend who is grieving, your grieving on that same level will not alleviate their pain—they may in fact be sorry to see that you are resonating with their sadness.
Yet you may feel that you are not showing sufficient compassion if you do not sit down and cry with those who are in despair, believing that empathy and kindness require such.
But consider that you are moving beyond experiencing sadness and pain now, for any reason, and that the excuse that “I was comforting another” is no longer a part of your path.
Others tell you their troubles not to bring you to their level of shock or sadness or anger, though it may seem that way at times, but to ask you to raise them up, in steps, to the level that they perceive you are on.
A great deal is being asked of you now.
You are being asked by those around you to be a sort of leader, to show them where the great Light that emanates from you originally comes from.
Many are curious to know how they may tap into that and resonate with it, in their own way.
For you to drop down to the level of their despair—to add one more rock to the heavy weight of human sadness—does nothing whatever to help them, and they know this.
Certainly, as a natural empath (and natural healer), it is your instinct to resonate with those you connect with on a heart level.
But we assure you, they do not ask you to do so in a way that has you resonating with their despair.
They ask that you show you understand their struggle, but while remaining calm, reaching out to them not from their place of grief, but from your higher place of peaceful understanding that All Is Well in this Universe.
They ask that you affirm that they are fully able to join you in that place, once they are ready to do so.
As you do so, you hold that space for them, knowing and believing in their ability to release whatever troubles them, to open up to a higher answer—to weather their challenges with courage and the sort of detachment that is utterly fifth dimensional.
And that vibration means not allowing emotional reactions to lead their thoughts and determine their ongoing emotional vibration.
That peaceful detachment—and you have achieved it many times—is the very nature of compassion.
It is a matter of holding the understanding of another’s challenges in one hand, and the reality of their powerful soul in the other hand, with the understanding that their higher self is bringing them home to peace and wholeness, no matter what may appear to be happening to them right now.
You cannot know their path, and what they determined, before incarnating, would best stimulate the soul growth and expansion that they risked the travails of yet another Earth life to attain.
Likewise, when the thought of a painful episode from your own past comes to the surface, offer compassion—caring, with detachment and belief in your higher path—to your younger self.
Becoming angry or sad again and again may appear to be a form of showing solidarity with the person you were then, and that is understandable.
Yet you do not help or heal that younger self, who comes to you for understanding and wisdom that they do not have yet, when you agree with them that this person or that was an abusive lowlife, and you hope they got their comeuppance.
We assure you, all things are coming to their rightful place now on your planet.
Nothing is to be hidden in this New Earth you are building, and justice and equality are a very large part of the equation.
Each person must face their judge—their own soul and Divine Self—and determine who to ask forgiveness of, and what forms of sensitivity, wellness, and balance they have avoided or been deprived of till now.
Allow your younger self to heal from the shocks and traumas of the past, by saying to them, when these memories arise, “Yes, I see that you suffered. I am sorry I was not there to protect you. We’re much stronger now. Release this. They have no power over you now. I have banished them. You are free.”
They come to you crying about past abuses and losses, precisely because you were not then able to give them the level of reassurance and comfort then that you are able to give now.
But you will notice that until you are able to believe in your higher path with detachment, not anger or grief, they tend to remain unhealed.
This is counter-intuitive, perhaps—your ego-mind will be wondering, Why would you not stay angry at a foul injustice, toward you or anyone?
Yet try this with yourself, as an experiment.
See if you can consciously turn toward the younger self who was fed to one wolf or another before their defenses, self-esteem, and self-care were fully in place, and speak on their behalf now.
Consciously interact with these memories, whether you speak mentally to the abuser and inform them that none of this will be tolerated, or you speak to your younger self to say, “They have no power over you now. Leave that place. I will protect you. You are safe!”
You have been seeking this for many a year—this reassurance and belief in your or another’s strengths and ability to recuperate and continue on the path, without bitterness.
And in these times when Lightworkers are depended upon to not fall for the old regime’s tricks of trying to entrain you upon a vibration of anger, despair, grief, or shock, your movement forward in this is not only called for, but a requirement for your Ascension.
And will I become so detached and calm about everything that I no longer fully participate in life—no longer full feel life? you may ask.
You have not seen your higher self in full presence.
You have not seen him or her dancing on the color and Light forms of these new and higher frequencies, singing with the tonal vibrations of waxing moons, Nature spirits, and legions of Angels, as we have, or you would not ask.
You are riding the great wave of planetary and individual Ascension as Poseidon rides the waves that are his horse herds—and you are no less powerful, dramatic, celebratory, and astounding.
Namaste, powerful ones! Step up, and be your full and higher selves.
The Universe awaits.
