Do you ever feel like you are alone? That no one understands what you are feeling? Have you looked around you seeing others happy all around you, feeling like their lives are perfect? Every person has felt this way, but for different trials they are experiencing. I, too have felt this many many times. The beautiful thing about this is that this is not reality. We have a Savior who has felt every pain, every sorrow, and every burden. While pondering on how he could have felt what I was feeling, the thought came, "He never gave birth, right?". This is the conclusion that I have come to, His life was far from perfect. He was literally all alone in the Garden of Gethsemane. He was betrayed. He felt unspeakable pain, emotionally and physically. It may have been different circumstances, but the feelings, pain, and emotions were there. All that he endured, he endured out of love, for us. I feel like his love, and God's love is extended to us when we need it and when we don't. We feel it when someone gives a smile, helps that mom trying to get a stroller upstairs, and when we are helping others with comfort and support.
If there is anything that I have learned having a job as an energy healer and foot zoner, no one is immune to problems. That person with the perfect house and perfect family has problems too. So when someone is unkind or unloving, it is best to give the benefit of the doubt because we do not know what they are going through. The answer is love. Love yourself and love others as they are.Be forgiving to yourself and others.
I have struggled at times thinking that because I have struggles, have felt the darkness of depression and anxiety, I am not adequate to help others. I am not able to do this work. But I know that this too is a lie. It is because of the struggles I face that I am better able to understand where you are coming from, and I can help you more. I rely on God in every session and I choose to believe in myself, to beleive that I can make a difference and bring light to your life. And by doing so, you bring light to my life. I am a wounded, but healing healer.
If you need love and support, it is there. Let yourself receive it. If you see someone else in need, give of yourself and you will fee uplifted. Don't give into the lies, but hold onto the hope that is all around you. Let us unite and become a more loving and kind people
