Caring without Carrying

flower with heart

It doesn’t take morning news, or news at all, to know the struggles going on in our world. I Know. I feel them. Do you?

For some of us, it’s about turning off the news and tuning into ourselves; our energy and emotions. We need to balance compassion and empathy . . . what I call the difference between caring and carrying. I tend to be hypersensitive to energy and environment so I need to be centered in my own body and aware of what is mine and what is theirs and yes, what is ours. Universal emotions are real and we pick up on them all the time. Have you experienced this?

If you think this might be happening, do this check-in with yourself:

  • Sit with both feet on the floor and legs shoulder-width apart.
  • Take 3 deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth.
  • Tune into your heart and then any area of your body calling for attention. Consciously feel each area of tension, anxiety, tightness, one by one, and ask: 1) What do you want me to know? 2) What do you want me to do? 3) What’s it going to take for you to ease up/heal? Take time to listen and align thoughts, words and actions with info you got. Your energy and emotions will follow.

Next week I will talk about how to handle those times when we feel an emotion suddenly and shockingly; like one moment you’re fine and the next you’re drastically different. It’s important to know how to deal with emotions. I hope the information above helps.

Here to hear you and to help you hear yourself,
