“In every community, there is work to be done.
In every nation, there are wounds to heal.
In every heart, there is the power to do it.”
When I read this quote, I immediately felt a connection to its message.
I believe that I exist to assist individuals and groups in healing on many levels. I have been “learning” how to heal myself throughout my life. With each level of healing, I feel more power, compassion and empathy in my heart.
Being called, consistently, to help “heal” can feel heavy at times. I have, on occasion asked, “Why me?” and sometimes, “What about me?”
Interestingly, each time that I have stepped forward and served in healing, that “what about me” question has been answered as I felt my heart swell with gratitude, compassion and joy as I watched the wounds of another begin to be sutured!
I consistently feel a sense of fulfillment in helping others. I also enjoy being helped and have been so thankful for those who have assisted in healing me. I haven’t always allowed the help, but I have learned that others wish to “fill my bucket” as I do theirs.
Great power arises in reaching back and lifting each other up.
Who needs you today?
Simply open your eyes and heart, reach out your hands and then be prepared to experience the joy in assisting another!
