News Flash! Discover the power of compassion! It will change your Life! With all that is happening energetically right now, causing all kinds of experiences from emotional distress to bodily issues, this would be the time to invest heavily in compassion – for yourself and for others!
POWER OF COMPASSION
Start with yourself. Pay attention to your thoughts and your actions. When you notice you are not living up to your own expectations, this is the perfect time to be gentle and kind to yourself. Remind yourself that you are really doing the best that you can in those moments. Recognize that the profound energies and light we are experiencing are going into very deep core places that we have not wanted to look at because we have judged them.
What would happen if you just allowed whatever feelings and thoughts come up for you? Just observe and experience. No judgement. Be in non-resistance. Take the story out of the experience-just feel the energy. It opens the way to very satisfying shifts as you release old patterns and stuck energy.
Imagine this: there is a part of you that is really enjoying this adventure you are having in The Game Called Life. Whether you are experiencing fun and play or physical, mental and emotional pain, deep in your core you know this is simply a game. It isn’t real. And in your personality, you can always remind yourself that whatever you are experiencing is temporary. Having such awareness helps you be in a state of non-resistance and whatever you are noticing can flow right through.
As you are becoming more compassionate with yourself, start being more compassionate with others. Let go of judgments to the best of your ability. When you do notice that you are having difficulty with someone else, know that usually happens because they are triggering something inside of you. In that moment, you can open up to greater joy and peace inside yourself as you are able to be compassionate toward yourself and also toward the other person.
For those times when you are unhappy with yourself or someone else, when your anger, frustration, disgust or other feelings come up, here are some things you can do to interrupt those patterns and shift into compassion:
- Remind yourself, “This is just a game.”
- Say to yourself, “I call my energy back from this.”
- Step into being in observation of what is going on rather than getting caught up in the negative patterns of judgement.
- Say, “I am choosing the love here.”
You can also put your focus on being compassionate by asking questions such as, “What five things can I do today that will be outrageously kind and compassionate? How present can I be today when somebody says something that does not look like what I want to hear?”
Remember, you have the ability to become a master of the moment by choosing what you think and how you feel. You can even ask yourself, “What do I choose to think right now? How do I choose to direct my thoughts? How do I choose to feel right now and how do I choose to direct my feeling nature in this moment?
Choosing to live from a place of kindness and compassion, you will find your life flows in an easier way. The rough spots become smoother and you experience a sense of true mastery as joy and peace become the natural way of life for you.
