Our Divine Download for May 12, 2022 is Compassion from the Mary, Queen of Angels Oracle Cards with the message "I see and feel others' point of view with forgiveness and kindness." The Oxford Dictionary defines compassion as "sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others." Compassion has also been said to mean "to suffer together." Compassion doesn't have to be about suffering, it can be as simple as recognition that we are all human and as such we all have similar challenges and shared experiences. True compassion involves sympathy, sometimes even empathy (though without taking on emotions and experiences that don't belong to us), and the acknowledgement of shared experiences through the recognition that we are truly all one. Compassion is about holding space for others through awareness and concern." Compassion takes us out of our own narrow microcosmic view of self and our own experiences and asks us to look at the macrocosmic experiences that we all share through our humanity. Compassion challenges us to be better people, better neighbors, better citizens of planet Earth. Compassion brings us together through experiences which may seek to separate and divide. Mindful compassion is what we are being asked to embrace today. How can we share in and offer support to the experiences of others? Where can we hold space for others (and even ourselves?) How can we broaden our typically narrow views? How can we use the tool of compassion to be better in all areas and all aspects of our lives? Challenge yourself to a day, a week, or even a month of compassion focused living and see the magic of what can truly shift around you in your life and the lives of others.
Compassion for others is not truly possible without compassion for self. Yet we hold ourselves up to such impossibly high standards that we rarely allow ourselves the grace and space of compassion. Our Angels are here to remind us how to do that during a 60 Minute Angel Card Reading. Schedule Your Session Today: Book Your Session HERE!
