Have you found that people who are right in the midst of a personal struggle will gravitate to you and that your energy seems to guide them through their crisis? Well that may mean that you are a catalyst of other people’s healing.
I am not referring to the daily healing work I do as a practitioner. No, I am talking about a much deeper personal and emotional healing done in a one-to-one relationship.
I am looking at why I get drawn into these situations. With my own experiences I have found that the following traits and behaviors attract the people who are in need of a catalyst to make life changing decisions:
After years of working on myself I have come to a place in my life where I feel truly authentic. I don’t feel judged by anyone because I don’t care what others think and I don’t judge others. The saying “What other people think of you is none of your business” resonates with me at a conscious and unconscious level. This authenticity leads to ease in my dealings with others and makes them feel comfortable to share their secrets.
I live my life with an intensity that is seldom matched in people around me. Other people who resonate the same become close friends and in these cases there is no energy loss on either side. The ones who don’t vibrate at the same rate find my intensity and energy acts like a catalyst for them. They draw from this and use it to spark change in their own lives. In most cases this is not a problem because I have learnt how to protect myself from energy vampires.
My heart is open to my community, my friends and my family. My heart is generally open in this way. I do however keep my heart hidden in a relationship until something happens that triggers a happy memory and allows me to open it. Once that happens I am 100% present and engaged. I don’t play games well, so I avoid them. I am either in or out there is no in between. This trait often makes the other person feel safe and then they start to engage at a deeper level. There are times they run because they are just not ready. When they run I struggle to just let it be at first but I soon see the wisdom
I am nothing if not enthusiastic. I have a passion for life and I don’t play small. I have lived most of my life taking risks and laughing at most of the consequences. My motto, if you don’t laugh you’ll cry and that won’t solve anything. So I choose to laugh. If doesn’t hurt less but it is more bearable and affords me the grace to hold my head up and laugh with others at my crazy life. People who need to feel protected when taking a risk notice this. They draw energy from me to step into the unknown.
Do you have the same traits? For me it isn’t always easy… sometimes I invest and find that I am left asking what went wrong. Does this happen to you? Have you been left wondering how come you have been squeezed dry?
Here is what I know; you have far more reserves than you think. You will always return stronger than before. You will recover quickly as long as you are never a victim. Perhaps it is yours to do but remember you always have a choice.
I realize quickly that I choose my path and that there is power in every choice I make. Life is glorious and we should all live it to the fullest, even if it means taking risks and laughing in the face of despair.
Love & Light
