The level of compassion we have for ourselves is the same that we will have for others.
In order to sit down at the table and really listen to others, we need to first do the hard work of looking at what parts of ourself still need to be held with Compassion and Kindness. This requires honesty and courage……to not gloss over or stuff emotions, to not belittle or disregard our past needs that were not met, to not deny that we had expectations, to really examine what Beliefs lie under our assumptions or our hurt feelings. Yes, Courage, Beautiful Ones, is needed, but you are not in this alone. No one is. We all have a Spirit Team ready and waiting.
Call in your favorite Angel or Ascended Master, your own Higher Self/Soul, your “Spirit Team”. Call them into your Heart Space. See this Heart Space as either a Crystalline Temple or a Beautiful Garden, and Invite the Spirit Team in, to sit with you. Ask for their Love , Support and Guidance with this Process. Remember that it is a Process, and not just a One Time deal.
As things come up, look with gentle eyes. See with the eyes of The Heart. Be kind and gentle with yourself and embrace the parts of you that need to feel Love. Ask your Spirit Team to surround these parts and hold, embrace, sing to, wrap in rainbows of Light, these parts. And ask for all negative emotions to be lifted away, within bubbles of Pink Light, by the Angels, up to The Heart of God.
You may even ask for a member of your Spirit Team to continue to walk with you, through out your day, to provide comfort and upliftment. I did this myself, a long time ago, actually more than once, and it has provided a great measure of comfort. The first time, it was Jesus/Yeshua who came and sat down at a picnic table with me, in the Garden of my Heart. Though He did not speak, he looked me square in the eyes, with a Depth of Compassion that is indescribable, and when I asked if He would hold my hand, as I walked through Life, to lend me His courage and support, He reached across the table and grabbed hold of both of my hands. Many times in my life, perhaps when I needed the reminder most, I would “see” with my inner eye, Him, walking beside me, holding my hand. It brings tears to my eyes every time, even now as I type this!
The Angels too, Glorious, Wonderful Angels! Call on them, and often, as they Truly Love to Assist you! Angels are Guardians of Hope and Wonder, the Keepers of Magic and Dreams. Angels watch over you wherever you go, ready to help out when you remember to ask. Angels carry High Beam Lights to help you through the darkest hours. They can help you to carry the ball, carry a tune, carry your weight away, carry your grief away, up to The Heart of God, and support you to carry on! Angels are with you every step of the way and help you soar with Grace. Your own personal Guardian Angel, especially, knows you inside and out, Loves you deeply and sees the Beauty of your Soul.
Remember that you are not alone. Remember to call upon your Spirit Team always, for they hear and respond. Beautiful Ones, Go Now, and Ask.
