Have you ever shared a personal concern or story with someone and you could feel that they didn’t really understand or get it? The person might have nodded and smiled, but you knew that they were unable to connect with the concept and fully support you. Sometimes that can be really frustrating…
Have you ever not been able to fully be present in the moment with someone else when they were sharing a heartfelt experience? This person was perhaps pouring out emotion and you just couldn’t empathise, connect or understand what the big deal was all about?
The concepts that we are destined to understand over the course of our lifetimes are always like peeling back the never-ending layers of an onion. Our life has seasonal levels of comprehension which can range from just the tip of the iceberg to massive icebergs of awareness that hit us with the full force of understanding when they're meant to. This in turn determines the depth of the level of empathy and compassion we're able to offer based on our own experiences through life
There is a beautiful energetic exchange that occurs when you show empathy and compassion for people.
It means that you’re not being self-indulgent and you’re truly showing up in a capacity which helps your soul to expand by being of service to others.
Even if you don’t fully understand….try and be open to the experience of being empathetic. It extends your range of feelings, it can heighten your intuition and it can also be saved in your memory palace for times when you need to reference how to deal with certain situations.
When you cultivate the capacity to feel empathy and compassion for what another human being is experiencing, then you have the power to expand your consciousness.
This is why it’s so important to read the stories of what other people have experienced in their lives. Because when you tune into their triumphs after they have risen up from the pits of despair, you actually connect to the energy of success, love and compassion.
These energetic currencies are what fuel the human spirit.
Simply put, if you feel the true journey to success, you will energetically mooch off it (in a positive way) and draw it into your vibration. This in turn will manifest all good things.
Take what happened to me for example…
I was on my honeymoon in the Dominican Republic in 2013 and was suffering a miscarriage (1 out of 5 in 12 months). It was supposed to be the happiest time of my life, but I felt like I was sinking into a pit of despair. Desperate to make myself feel a little better and see people that had overcome the same obstacle, I turned to the ‘Health and Happiness’ book in our bestselling Adventures In Manifesting series to read a chapter called ‘When Faith Is All You Have’ by Shelby Alexander Griggs.
She shares the story of how she suffered multiple pregnancy losses and just as she was about to give up hope, she manifested a healthy baby girl against all odds.
Her inspiring story gave me hope. It kept me on my own path to holding the vision of carrying a healthy baby one day. As many of you know, my baby Lulu Dawn was born in March 2015.
The power of real-life inspiration like this, held with the power of empathy and compassion cannot be underestimated. It shows you what is possible and that real people, just like you can achieve amazing results.
