I’ve had this series of books since the ’90’s, and haven’t reread it in years. Thought about donating it and decided to read it first, and wow, I am so glad I did! I knew that I kept it because I liked it so much, but it’s hitting chords so much stronger this time around, especially as I am now a “healer”.
Most of all, though, I have found my guiding…motto?…credo?…light?…? One of the characters is talking about the Elves, and he says, “Because that’s what Elves do. Help and heal. Aid and comfort. That’s really what everybody should do.” (emphasis mine)
That’s it. That was like a bell going off in my head, a deep, lovely, cathedral bell. Over the years I’ve said that I hold space for you, I provide an oasis of peace, healing harmony, all manner of things, but this one phrase, wow. It encompasses what I do with the light (and I hope in my life) into 6 simple words.
Help and heal. Aid and comfort.
Every single time I offer to send light, those words have been the reason behind it; I just didn’t know how to phrase it succinctly. And perfectly. I know that I can do all of those things, and it’s so hard for me to sit back and not just offer, offer, offer…to try to help every being on the planet. Not everyone is open to lightwork, so I’ve learned to either gently mention it, or if I do ask straight out, not to take it personally if they pass.
Those words are also why, no matter how hard I’ve struggled to market myself, I have never, nor will I ever, given up trying. I can’t help it. I have to try because not doing so is like accepting this gift and then tossing it in the back of the closet, never to bring it out again. Not happening.
I’ve been wanting another tattoo for years, but could never find the perfect “IT”; I have now. One day in the future I’ll get it inked on my arm for all to see. I will bring me so much joy!
I’m curious if there is something that guides you? A phrase, an idea, a song lyric, a feeling…what is your North Star, of sorts?
With hope, love, and anticipation,
PS: I’m having fun with Substack; it’s freed me to write about things I would post here. I don’t charge (though I may in the future), and if you don’t want emails, you can just save the link and read it every now and again. No worries!
PPS: Wondering how to keep track of the months and minutes left when you sign retain me (for the low, low price of $99 for 900 minutes of time)? I send you an email in 30 day increments with just that information! Keeps us both aware of what’s going on.
