Help Others, but not at your own Peril!

by | 14th June 2012

The Angels messages of late seem to be about our own importance.  So many people, who have been coming for readings lately, seem to have similar issues.  We are often so involved in looking after everyone else’s needs, making sure everyone is ok, we forget all about ourselves.  When we have taken care of everyone else and we eventually get five minutes just for us, we are fit for nothing and fall asleep.

The Angels often show me pictures or symbols to get a message across; the one I am seeing repeatedly at the moment is of an airhostess and the oxygen mask!  Aircraft staff always say about putting your own mask first before you help others.  Even though I can remember when flying with my children when they were little how alien this felt.  As a mother we want to make sure my children are ok before attending to my own needs.  The Angels tell me this is the wrong way round and when you look at the bigger picture as much as it does not feel right, I can see what they mean.  As without my oxygen mask in place allowing me to breathe I wouldn’t be able to do anything for my children.  I wouldn’t be able to make sure they kept theirs on and did what they needed to.  So by taking care of my needs first enables me to take care of others people’s needs more efficiently and effectively.

That is all very well in a controlled situation but the reality life takes over, we are all rushing around cramming too much in to each day, racing around, under pressure and stressed.  Work commitments, children, partners, household chores, bills to pay, deadlines to meet, pets to take care of.  All which generally take priority over what our needs are.

But the Angels ask us to ask yourselves – “Are you really so unimportant that your needs can’t be taken care of”?

You are certainly very important to your Guardian Angel.  But sadly most people’s Angels are incredibly bored.  Imagine if you job was to help someone with everything in life, but only if they asked you.  You had to follow them around, watching what they did but unable to do anything.  I bit like when you do work placement from school.  It is boring, you want to help, make things a bit easy but you can’t.  That is what is happening with so many people’s Guardian Angels.

Your Guardian Angel loves you unconditionally, knows you are not perfect, can see your struggles and wants to help.  Knows ways to improve your life, wants to give you this information, is showing you signs but they are all being ignored because you are not aware of them. They also want you to be more important to yourself, so your life can change for the better.  Often we attract bad relationships because we don’t place enough value on ourselves, we don’t love ourselves enough and if we don’t value and love ourselves how can we expect others too?

The Angels tell me it is not a selfish act to take care of our needs but sensible.  If we feel more looked after, valued and not as stressed we become nicer people to be around.  So your family will benefit in the long run.  Obviously you can go in the total wrong direction and become big headed and selfish and believe me the Angels have something to say about that too!  But it is all about balance.  When you work with your Angels on a deeper level than just asking them for parking spaces you will be find you grow and deepen as a person.  Their unconditional love is so special it has to impact on your life.  It calms and nurtures you awakens your inner self that loves you and others all just as they are without conditions attached.  They know we are no Angels we aren’t meant to be but with your Angels working in your life, helping and assisting were asked, things change for the better.  But mistakes will still happen as we are no Angels and life is about learning.

You are important.
