These ones touch our hearts in the deepest of ways. They are called ‘family’ and choose to be here with us in this life experience to support us to know ourselves on ever-expanding levels!
They come as our guides, our teachers, our triggers, and our allies. At times they can appear to be our greatest foes or they can be our deepest support. Each beautiful family member has a role to play in our lives, a contract worked out between them and us before we entered this reality!
Some are our guides in physical form, all are our teachers in so many ways ( the children of ‘now’ are especially included in this). Some are here as the shoulder to cry upon, and bring the arms to hold us when our hearts are heavy… and some play the hardest role of all (they choose this because they love us so much on other levels of reality)… they are our triggers, and will butt up against us time and time again until we surrender into our self and recognise an aspect of us that is holding us back!
Ceasing to project our feelings out onto them and instead, owning our feelings, starts a process of self-responsibility.. there is great personal power to be found within this process. Their behaviour is not about us, it is about them, our behaviour is about us!
On a deep level we can recognise what role each family member is playing out for us and when we do this we will feel differently towards that person.
All that they do and say, they do because they love us so much that they want us to feel every part, every aspect of our self and this life that we are experiencing, so that we may heal those abandoned aspects, those dismissed parts that we may not like in ourselves.
When each aspect is accepted back into our heart with love .. we change, we morph into a gentler more loving, more confident, grateful, open, forgiving and connected version of our self!
This is why we are here, to remember our personal truth and power. To regain our full memory of the beautiful Beings we are, and each time we come to the point of acknowledging and accepting an aspect of Self back into our heart of hearts, our Confidence grows, our Self Respect, Self Worth, and Self Love grows deeper.. and we are closer to standing fully in our authenticity as the glorious God / Goddess that we are.
And remember also that we are also in roles for others. Being amazing Beings as we are, we can wear many hats during one lifetime and be playing many roles for others, however, we still have a responsibility even within our many roles, to be consciously aware of our thoughts and actions, words and feelings always.
Can you work out who is playing what role in your life? And what role you are playing within some of your family members and close friends lives? Realising can be an eye opener .. it can also be a heart opener!
