How to Give and not Burn-out
I dont know about you but I really feel stuff very strongly at times.
For me I find it most difficult hearing stories of children who have tragically died or been mistreated.
I strongly agree that these stories need to be told. I agree to exposing the truth. And I agree that these children need to be honoured and shown Love by telling their story. I also believe these stories can help others.
Though personally, when I hear or see these stories I get energetically pulled into them.
And find I am affected quite deeply. I dont know whether its a normal human experience, a mother’s fear or the fact that I easily tap into this connection. And I think this is what some people call empathic.
I start to have visions of the incidences, sometimes I feel the victims fear and have a movie like senario played out of the horrific event. Sometimes I can feel the perpetrators energy and intent. And most times I grieve for the victims and their families.
I also found myself at one stage substituting my little boy for the boy in the story. My boy became his surrogate and I felt I wanted to help the boy by showing him what true parental love feels like. It was an unconscious decision and felt I constantly felt the pull.
This way of coping with these scenarios is totally not ideal. I don’t recommend it. It is unhealthy for you and the other person.
Tragedy and horror are very real within our world though to allow your own energy to be poured into another person through tragic events, will drain you and ultimately not help the other.
And this type of Love conversion ends up doing this to you.
It drains your energy as you are merely handing over your energy to another and saying, ‘Here have this, you need it more than I do.’
By doing this we are forgetting that the other person, whether they are in spirit or still alive, have their own supply channel to the life force/the Universe/God/healing/Love. And that you don’t need to supply it for them.
A better way to help send love and support is by doing this…
You can help strengthen their energy by simply recognising it.
By doing this you help trigger more love conversion without expelling your own.
Some people call this – Sending Love and Light. Others call it prayer. What ever your belief, know that you are not only helping someone by triggering more love flow to fill them up, but you are doing so by staying in your own flow and not handing everything over.
It’s a win win.
I have taught this practice many times to clients who feel they need to help or rescue someone and end up feeling drained. This burnt out feeling comes up for many carers and those that are tending to others who are ill or need help. Many professionals in the service industry also tend to fall into this category.
This example, by no means, is saying not to practically assist or help someone if you can and is not talking about the many different healing techniques that can be used.
It is a reminder that you can help by recognising someone’s own strength, power and love by the simple thought that each person has their Love above them and within them.
What are the ways you cope with giving and hearing tragedies or caring for others?
