“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it’s beauty.” ~Albert Einstein
My gift to this world is my deep empathy. I see through the dense energy of the pain and anger projected by others. I see no one as being unworthy of receiving love and opportunity to heal. I see the light through the shadow aspect of human personality. I came here to protect, hold space and ignite healing within others.
The best thing I can do for anyone else is work on myself. The challenges my soul has grown from in this life is identifying and setting boundaries of my own to protect my energetic, emotional and physical well-being. I can not take adequate care of a single other soul unless I am taken care of, myself.
Deep empathy can be burdensome for those with undisciplined boundaries. I once lost all sense of who I was and my emotional needs were set aside as my own soul was carrying the load of those I cared for. This was the catalyst for a complete mental breakdown, but simultaneously the beginning of my awakening to self love and henceforth the strengthening of my gift of empathy and longing to complete my soul work as a healer for the wounded.
