Why worry? where does it get you? What does it change?
All it does it set your body up for a fight or flight situation, sends hormones into your body which are toxic and creates tension and disease in the body. Worry is a wasted emotion, worry is often as a result of an imagined scenario, fear based which then sends your thought processes into a spiral of negative thinking.
Worry creates disharmony in the body and creates a hormones to be released which create an imbalance, does this really help, yes some may say, easier said than done. But on the premise of working with what you physically, emotionally, spiritually have the capacity and power to change, what does worrying do? it creates all sorts of feelings, emotions and discord in the body and mind, not helpful.
The key principle if you feel worried about something, ask yourself does worrying change the outcome of your situation?
Yes worry is a real emotion, it is a real feeling but taking on its own merit it does not truly support you to be able to move forward but creates fear and creates a stumbling block to keeping it moving so that you can then move forward it a more positive manner.
Worrying does not have the power to alter the result nor change the outcome of what is naturally going to be, there are simply some things that we do not have control over, so in truth the only thing to do is trust that any outcome may be beyond our control, the key objective is how we choose to respond once we do know what the outcome is.
Perhaps worrying is a genetic trait, learned behaviour, perhaps family members have been prone to worrying and this too has created a reaction in you, learned behaviour, we do after all inherit some learned behaviours.
The guides are urging you today to recognize that worrying is wasted energy, which you can then free up to be utilized in a more positive manner.
Remembering that if you are dealing with a situation to which you do not know the answer to yet, or you feel it is something out of your control, just flow with it and trust that things will resolve themselves, that everything that you experience is temporary, it does not last, things change, sometimes quickly, sometimes it takes a little longer, but nonetheless, nothing stays the same forever. #
Work with what you have the power to control and let go of the rest.
Now Breathe, in love and beautiful light surrounding you to feel more at ease.
My thoughts turn to Compassion today, compassion goes a very long way in a World that can feel unfeeling at times, you just never truly know how much you holding out your hand in compassion will impact another. For you see many suffer in silence, sometimes the silence is out of not wanting to be a burden to others, not wanting to show vulnerability, not wanting to admit to others that one simply isn’t coping with what one may be going through. Over the years since I have been on Facebook, since 2009, I have seen only too well the posts that do get a response, and the posts that usually get a response are the negative posts and real life posts, you see human nature can respond to these type of posts, so I wanted to draw reference to the word Compassion today, I have been thinking about it for a couple of days now.
So what is Compassion? what exactly is it, a definition I have pulled up from Wikipedia is this;
Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental or emotional pains of another and themselves. Compassion is often regarded as having sensitivity, an emotional aspect to suffering, though when based on cerebral notions such as fairness, justice, and interdependence, it may be considered rational in nature and its application understood as an activity also based on sound judgment. There is also an aspect of equal dimension, such that individual’s compassion is often given a property of “depth”, “vigour”, or “passion”. The etymology of “compassion” is Latin, meaning “co-suffering.” Compassion involves “feeling for another” and is a precursor to empathy, the “feeling as another” capacity for better person centred acts of active compassion; in common parlance active compassion is the desire to alleviate another’s suffering. So here it is in a nutshell.
How much compassion do you display to your friends, family, those in need? is there tolerance for their plight and for their suffering? or do you get fed up if there is repetition of the same story?
Well you see the real essence is that progress and growth in terms of human suffering is I believe at the root of attachment, which in essence is human nature, we all get attached to something, someone and this is the very nature of human nature, can you imagine if we didn’t? how unfeeling would we really be, terribly cold I imagine. But there is one thing that comes to mind in the theme of human suffering is that suffering is a journey, just as grief, loss and detaching yourself from something, it is a journey, it takes time to untangle, to process, to understand, to digest, to get to a place where all of the varying emotions become bearable and no longer feel overwhelming, so imagine how it feels to go through a process of suffering, whether this be from life’s experiences, personal loss, addictions, trauma, it takes time, the journey to healing does not happen overnight, oh no.
So if you see someone within your peripheral circle who needs some support, reach out your hand in compassion to see if you can offer support, you may not be able to take their pain away, their suffering away, but just reaching out and being there, may mean so much, and it just may make a difference to their lives. We all need to feel loved, appreciated, cared for and that we matter, even though the real essence is not seeking validation outside of ourselves, or from others, but it does make a difference to our feeling of interdependence to know and to feel that someone does care.
You just never know how much of an impact that may have on another’s emotional, spiritual well-being.
And also remember too, lastly, if compassion does not include yourself, it isn’t compassion.

How many times do you see a quiet individual and think they are meek and mild, how many times? judgment you see is human nature, we do it all the time, even for those who state that they don’t, even for those who are conscious of their thoughts and are mindful in their actions of them.
You see there is so much judgement around quietness, being still, to be perceived as quiet it means, what is that person thinking, they are quiet, they appear very timid, mild and meek, but do you know calm and quiet can be a quiet hidden strength that resides from a very deep place.
I asked the Universe today for today’s card and the card that was drawn was “Calm Is Not A Weakness”. the key principles of its message today are as follows:-
- A balanced and harmonious existence attracts exactly that
- No drama
- Human society aspires to movers and shakers type A personalities, but what is the cost to their human emotional state, physical state and emotional well-being, at what cost.
- Slow and steady does win the race, it is not how long it takes to get there, but that you get there.
- Constant pressure to achieve can result in burn-out, distinguishing ones soul
- Take care of your human vessel
- Scattered energies achieve little
- Focus, slowly and diligently
- Money not being a total objective over inner calm, peace and inner happiness
- You have all you need
- You are resourceful
- Meditation and sitting in silence, quietens the mind, body and spirit and nourishes the soul.
So I ask you what are you doing to quieten your mind, body and spirit? where do you give your soul the nourishment of calm, inner peace. Tomorrow is a Full Moon a perfect time to allow the ebb of the Full Moon to flow over you as you prepare for the next chapter of your journey.
Remember a calm inner self equates to a peaceful soul.

Card by James Van Praagh. Messages From the Guides deck.
Hi, I asked for a card today to send out Universally and the card that came up is Like Attracts Like, interesting concept, some may think what does that mean, well in essence we get what we focus on, so if we focus on fear, anger, hate, love, disappointment, joy, negativity then we will get those things, this deck by James Van Praagh, Messages From The Guides, Transformation Deck I felt drawn too for spiritual work of sharing positive empowering messages.
In essence this card speaks of the following key points objectively:-
- What you focus on give your energy too this is what will manifest
- You are the creator of your own life
- A deflection away from compassion and truth via distractions from day to day life
- What you desire you must create
- Not giving into fear and anxiety
- Making a conscious effort to turn your fear based thoughts to that of compassion, forgiveness and understanding, mercy, tolerance and service.
- Know one is exempt from this universal law
- Turn negative energy, thoughts and actions into a positive
This takes awareness and conscious thought and action, it does not happen overnight and one has to re-train their mind. I also asked for another card from another deck I have and this one is from the Universe Has Your Back deck by Gabrielle Bernstein and ironically the card drawn fits in perfectly with the other, so today’s message and positive focus is watch your thoughts and your actions, if you are fear based then this is what you will create, let go, let love, compassion and understanding be your inner guide. It does not mean you condone what does not feel right it just means that you channel your thoughts and responses around it.
