I had coffee with two lovely friends today, we don’t meet together very often. One is switched on intuitively, like me, the other keeps things very close to her chest, yet today both she and I had a tearful moment – on completely separate subjects (its amazing how far a conversation can travel in a few hours!). We parted company, hoping and praying one of us can sort out a major issue and I no longer feel quite like the freak I thought I was!
My fear sort of re-appeared this morning, well no actually, I was just human and one of my Father’s adages came up again – ‘the law of unintended consequences’. I won’t go into the detail, but suffice to say that my tearful moment was in response to TOTAL empathy. We discussed parenthood – it is SO hard being a parent, I expect a colossal amount from myself (I didn’t have the best start in life with my Mother and this makes my personal Mothering journey particularly fraught). I LOVE my kids, but oh dear … it is hard to remember that they are only children, we expect an awful lot from them (and ourselves) sometimes.
Its all very well me doing this blog and blahing on about tying in Spiritual journeys, healing and helping each other. But sometimes we have to listen, advise, then sit back and let people take their own course. They know where we are, we can ask for blessings to be sent to them on their journey, pray for them but then we must leave them be. Until such time as I am approached for help again (or its shoved in my face so blatantly that I cannot ignore it – not everyone actually asks for help!!). I have a tendency to dwell on the trials and tribulations of others (a product of living too much in my own head and not enough out in the world – the joys of staying at home with a toddler all day!), its not healthy. I visualise an open goblet, pour the issue into it and send it winging to the Spiritual realm – let them deal with it. If I’m needed they (my spirit guides) will call me to the table! Its a fine balance – send a hug their way but don’t smother … easier said than done.
