“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.”
~Octavia E. Butler~
To hold space for another is to offer consistent unconditional support while being a calming presence throughout life’s upheavals. Compassion is a gift that creates space in which another can discover their own strength, awareness and potential. Sometimes, love calls upon us to simply listen without advice or judgment. Discernment is the ability to be a source of compassionate detachment.
When feeling overwhelmed, act with integrity, do your best and accept what is. Operate from a foundation of wisdom with the understanding that every circumstance works toward the highest good of all involved. There is much more to life than meets the eye. Often, the energetic or spiritual truth of a situation is the opposite of how it appears on the physical plane.
Your energy is transformative. Allow it to shine in such a way that others can navigate the dark night of the soul into the light of awareness and healing.
