You serve better through love

Last week we spoke about how you can assist others more if you resist the energetic tugs and pulls to join them in their difficult spaces. For although "misery loves company," you can help others far more if you invite them into your loving space than if you join them in their more difficult spaces.

This is not always easy, for many of you are empathic. You are deeply sensitive and caring souls who have the ability to feel other people's feelings. You sense the sadness of a friend, the upset of a stranger, the fear of a person trying to explain their ideas to you. You sometimes feel as if you are drowning in a sea of emotions that is not your own. Take heart, dear ones, you can care for the world, assist the world, and still remain in, but not of this world. You can feel the pain of others, then just as quickly step out of it and into the deeper truth of God's love.

Practically speaking, suppose someone you care about is going through an extremely difficult time. You love and care about them. You would do anything to help but perhaps you have asked and you cannot. Perhaps they are not ready to receive. Perhaps they do not want your wisdom. Whatever the case may be, there are always times when you must bear witness to pain in another that you cannot solve for them. Trust that they are going to learn what they need in this situation and it is not up to you to make them get out of their pain faster, just so you can feel comfortable. For in truth, dear ones, if you were to take away the pain of another before they are ready to release it, you would be robbing them of lessons they would most likely experience in yet another difficult circumstance.

So when you feel another in pain, first acknowledge what you feel. For some souls you can verbalize this, "I sense you are in great pain and I am here for you if you need assistance." For other souls who will not let you close, you can telepathically send the message, "I feel your pain and I love you. I am praying for you. God loves you and God is there for you." Then ask God and the angels to help you release the feeling for it does neither of you any good for you to join in the pain and suffering of another. Instead ask to see this soul through God's eyes, with love, grace, and compassion for the very difficult challenges and lessons they are currently going through. Stay in love dear ones, not in pain, for in a space of love you can be the light of the world. You can be the beacons of hope. You can be the ones to reach a hand out and uplift those who are hurting.

This truly, dear ones, is what it means to "be in the world but not of it." You can bear witness to pain and suffering while still knowing how deeply and dearly God loves you all. And if you are willing, you can be the hands, the eyes, the mouth, the hearts of God here upon the earth for one another. There is no greater healing balm than a love that says, "Yes, I see you. I love you. I want you to feel this love too."

God bless you dear ones, and your deeply caring hearts.
We love you so, so very much.
