In a soul reading with a young women yesterday I felt this unbelievable amount of heaviness in my chest, throat and stomach. An incredible sadness filled my heart and tears stung my eyes as I felt her pain. She was literally carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders at the age of 25.
She at 25 was feeling all the same feelings I had in my 40's and as I shared everything that came through for her she sat with a far away look in her eyes nodding her confirmations.
I had been her, she was me and so many others. I realized what this young lady needed more than anything was to hear she wasn't alone.
I put my hand on her knee, told her she wasn't alone in her feelings and the weight of the world was not hers to bare. She looked at me, put her head in her hands and began to cry. This young women who was already so done with the life she perceived to have finally allowed someone in to see her pain.
20 minutes can barely scratch the surface of what comes through in a reading but what I was able to share with her gifted her the connection she so desperately needed, HOPE for her future and CLARITY in the steps she has the ability to take to create substantial change. She welcomed a hug from me with a smile on her face and a lightness in her heart that I felt radiating from her. And that's all it takes to be the change we want to see in the world.
It's not about picking up the battles and fighting them alongside someone sharing war stories while making them bigger and even stronger by adding to their energy;
It's about listening,
and holding space,
and letting someone know they are not alone in this life even when it feels like it.
But it's also about learning to ask for what you need and being open to receiving it.
In a world where the agendas of many are so blatantly confusing, the separation of people through ideas, thoughts and beliefs is becoming more and more and the scarcity mindset is running rampid due to the rising cost of absolutely everything it's no wonder the younger generations are now mistakenly carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders too.
Your empowering question of the week is this:
What area(s)s of your life do you tend to see or feel yourself as a victim? The more you are willing and open to taking a look at these areas the more you can give and receive without an unconscious agenda of your own. We can live differently but it's a choice and the choice is ours.
