(Compassion, Archangel Oracle Deck by Doreen Virtue)
This card, this week is urging us to keep our hearts soft in the face of trying circumstances.
Archangel Zadkiel: “Soften your heart with respect to this situation, and all the people involved, including yourself.”
Now that little bit at the end is so important – “including yourself”
Often times we can feel guilty for feeling annoyed at other people/situations that there is no one to really blame or hold responsible for.
Even if there is someone accountable, there is often nothing that can be really done, sometimes things just happen in life that make certain people unhappy through noone’s ‘fault’
So we turn that helplessness and irritation back on ourselves.
This week let’s try and start showing compassion for ourselves first, by allowing ourselves to feel frustration, grief, resentment or anything else that comes up.
Feel it, self-soothe and treat yourself kindly.
Only when we feel ‘okay’ in ourselves will we really have the energy to give to others, and support them in feeling okay.
They key word here is ‘support’ – we cannot fix anyone else’s problems, we cannot change anyone else’s circumstances, we have to allow others to fix themselves – but we can help.
One of the easiet ways to help is to show compassion.
Compassion can be leaving someone to sort out a problem by themselves.
Compassion can be allowing someone to leave your life.
Compassion can be stepping back in order to regroup.
Compassion can be a loving text at the end of a really long day.
Much love always Txx
