Message from the Angels:
Giving love to a difficult soul does not mean you have to spend time around them, agree with them, or even subscribe to their behaviors. Nor does it mean you have to educate or correct them. Loving a soul simply means that you recognize that the light of God exists in their heart as well and that there is value to them as a person whether or not they are choosing to express a loving truth. Loving a soul means recognizing that everyone, without exception, is here to discover the light of God within them, and everyone has purpose. Everyone deserves your love and your prayers, whether you agree with them or not.
However, you must choose to love yourself first if you are going to be truly able to give this spiritual love to another soul. You must be able to speak your truth with the understanding that your perspective is valid and real to you – we are not speaking about telling other souls how they should behave, but rather expressing your own perspectives and feelings here. You have a right to feel how you feel. You have a right to be the loving soul that you truly are. You have a right to set firm boundaries and to walk away from unloving and unkind behavior.
If you acknowledge your own right to move towards loving and kind behavior and away from that which is not, then you will allow others to be who they choose to be. You will simply withdraw from negative souls, or if you must spend time around them, you will choose to be in a loving space and refuse to take on their negativity. After all – their negativity is their own – it is not yours to solve or fix. You can say to a negative soul, “I can see how you feel that way,” without ever agreeing with their perspective. You can acknowledge without agreeing. You can even remain silent. In this fashion, you honor their right to be by maintaining your own.
Just as water in a stream moves around the unmoving boulders, you too can move around those who choose not to budge or to be unyielding to your love. You can choose to remain silent when those around you gossip or speak in unkind ways because silence is a powerful message. The rocks along the canyon walls shape the river – so too the unmoving souls help you find your own heart and the movement and growth that you seek in life.
It is a time on earth of sorting and clarification. You are becoming clear on who you are, and the heavens simply ask that as you do this, you allow others to become clear on who they are. The miserable will seek out company of like mind and the joyous and trusting will seek out their own company as well. Allow others to be who they are. Allow yourself to be who you are. All is a movement towards greater love and a greater discovery of the loving soul inside this person you have chosen to be. We love you so very much.
