What Do You Do with the Unexpected?
Let's Genuinely Help Others
Here I am in the middle of writing a joy book knowing that a fire has burned down my neighbour’s homes in Lahaina.
How do I maintain my joy knowing my neighbours are not only losing their homes but in some cases their lives?
How about you? How do you maintain your joy (your high vibration) when you’re witnessing something that is hurtful to witness?
Life is Full of the Unexpected
I’m trying to relax and meditate but thoughts of the Lahaina fire invade.
My sadness is overwhelming, and I feel like I’m falling into a dark abyss.
I make myself breathe deeply and focus on my breath.
As I continue to focus on my breathing, I hear from my Still Small Voice (my voice of truth, or Godly voice).
You’re not helping. When you lower your energies you cannot help the problem.
The only way to raise others is to first raise yourself.
You must concentrate on raising your vibration.
We Don’t have to be Joyless
Being easier about someone else’s pain doesn’t mean we don’t care. Being easier about it, brings ease into our beingness, which then gives us the oomph needed physically, mentally, and emotionally to rise up and serve.
Think about this - How many times do you find yourself in the middle of someone else’s pain? Maybe you’re having a conversation with them and they’re sharing the depths of their distressed feelings, or maybe you’re witnessing them in an action of distress, or maybe you hear about their plight from a third party.
Whatever the case may be… It’s important to not allow ourselves to sink into their upset.
As we know, everything is energy, and all energy vibrates, and like attracts like. So, what do you suppose happens when we add our lower vibrations to their lower vibrations?
We attract more of the same! More of the same does not alleviate any problem.
As Albert Einstein once said, “We cannot solve problems at the same level of thinking that we were at when we created those problems.” (I’ll add, that we cannot help anyone solve their problem with the same kind of thinking as they have.)
Friend, let’s be easier about it. Let’s care enough to keep our harmony so that we can help bring harmony to those who need it most.

First Love Yourself
After I heard that the only way to raise others is to first raise yourself. You must concentrate on raising your vibration.
I get it. Clarity roots itself and I understand that - just because someone is hurting doesn’t mean we need to sink into their hurt to give support.
First, I begin by sending love and blessings to myself. As I breathe and envision love as a pink ray of light coming from the Divine going into my heart and deep into my belly, I calm down. In the calmness, I feel peaceful and connected.
Once I raise my vibration, I then radiate love and blessings to the folks of Lahaina.
As I continue to focus on love, ease and hope flood my being.
Now every time I think of my Lahaina neighbors, I immediately fill myself with love. I want to make sure that my vibration is high enough to make a difference.
Dearest, let’s remember that it’s in our higher state of being that we can genuinely help others.
Inner Joy Compass Prompt:
To continue with the thought that we can genuinely help when we hold a high vibration, breathe and complete the following:
The next time I hear about a loved one’s pain, I will raise my vibration by ____________________________________.
I will make this a practice starting with _____________________________.
“Living with a high vibration is a choice you make in the present moment.” – Unknown
I thank you for being here with me.
May we vibrate high together and raise ourselves along with those we love.
Blessings of love to you and yours,
