Helping as guided...

I did not find out about the tornadoes in Oklahoma until I was in a chat room during the Braco live streams. A woman mentioned that she was there and the sirens were going off but she was fine. Her heart was peace in the storm and her home and family were mercifully unaffected. You see stories in every disaster of houses being spared by tornadoes in strange ways,and stories of people in hurricanes whose houses wash away, but who are miraculously tossed into safe spaces. I have a friend who long ago was spared almost certain death as waves of a wildfire in California miraculously went around the house where she was trapped and praying. We too can be peace in the storms of life. We too can have the faith that no harm comes to us unless we have something to learn or contribute through the experience. And when our lives are going well and we witness others going through sometimes unthinkable disasters and pain, we can be the angels who offer hope, relief, and compassion.

So how do you know what to give and when? Like many others, when I watched the recent tornadoes from the safety of my own solid home, I felt a mixture of both fascination and awe with the powers of nature, a sense of gratitude for my peaceful life, and huge waves of compassion for those affected. I wanted to reach out and hold some of those people in my arms, but instead I sent my soul and prayed for them to feel the ever loving embrace of God rise up within them. When I am guided I donate money. After one disaster, before I had even paid my own bills I heard the angels giving me a specific large amount to contribute. I wrote the check without thought, knowing my needs would be met as well. After the hurricane back east last year I was guided to connect those with supplies and those in need, even though I was nowhere near the area. Trust, that you will know what to do.

So when you see the tough things going on in the world, quiet your minds. Drop into your hearts. Ask a simple question, "God/Source what do you want me to do here?" You may get nothing. In that case, the answer is, "Nothing." You may get pray, play, contribute, etc. Trust your own heart and your own guidance. It may not seem like "enough" but trust again and always that the power that moves the stars in the heavens can coordinate the gifts of those "who have" with the requirements of those "who need."

I know that by continuing to celebrate my happy life, while at the same time offering immense light, love, compassion, and contributions as guided, this will be the way I can uplift souls. Some are guided to fly in and shelter or feed others. Some are guided to pray. Some are guided to counsel or console. Many are not guided to do a thing in one case or another. Your love in any aspect of your life, whether directly related to the disaster or not, contributes to the greater good of humanity.

So if you are affected, we send you great love and acknowledge you for your strength and for demonstrating the best the human spirit has to offer. And if you are not affected, ask if there is anything you can do to love those who have been affected. Listen to the still small voice of you heart, for this is where we connect with the One Love that binds us all together.
