Greetings Beloved Ones.
Friendship is such an important construct for humans. As you are born into a family, picked for various reasons by your Higher Self, as you grow through your life you will find people you will take to your heart and call them various terms defining your friendship.
Just as with your family members, these individuals will have ample opportunity to hurt your feelings and your heart. They will also bring many moments of joy and happiness to you, if you allow it. If you are blessed to have someone come into your life and your heart you must always remember that this person is a spiritual being on their own path, and thus they have their own lessons to learn, have the right to make their Free Will Choices, and whatever they choose to do has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them.
As you grow in your life you develop friends from different locations – work, hobbies, travel – and they add to different parts of you and help you grow and round out your world viewpoint. This is good. No one is an island and if you prevent yourself from learning about the reality you live in, that will hamper you from growing and developing in your life plan.
We angelics are always happy for you when you find that individual who you add to your tribe to love, and happier when that relationship stays positive. Unfortunately, just as you have disagreements with your family members, so too will you disagree with your friends. This does not mean that the friendship is over, however, what happens is entirely up to free will – yours and the others.
There is nothing wrong with enjoying and loving someone. But when one takes in another person’s issues it is detrimental to oneself – and can throw one off of one’s healing path. All too often, in pain and sadness, humans reach out to others to solve their problems, instead of looking inside and reaching for their higher self and their guides to help them. Each person is responsible for their own healing and growth and when you give your power over to someone else, you will stagnate instead of grow.
Indeed, one should really focus on living in the moment and enjoying the moment while respecting and loving oneself. Honor that which you are growing through as a step in your path just as you honor others living this challenging life known as being human. Love yourself and love those around you, giving the respect to each other that each has the free will choice to make whatever decision one chooses – regardless of any label others may place upon that choice.
Love is so much more than the narrow definition humans give it. One definition of Love that we would like you to embrace and enact in your life is that you have free will to make a choice or not make a choice. Not making a choice is still a choice, but making active choices instead of passive choices will help you develop your sense of Will over time. Once your sense of Will is developed you will be less likely to fall complacently into line with those who may not have your highest and best good in their intentions.
And that is truly what friendship is about – spending time with others who accept you and respect that your highest and best good is equally as important as theirs. If you are spending time with someone who does not respect your highest and best good, then it may be time to meditate on the relationship and see what is holding your friendship in place. Is there a lesson that needs to be learned and healed? Do you stay friends because of stagnation or fear? Even family members eventually leave the home environment and begin the process of living on their own, separate from each other. If you have someone in your life who has expectations of what you should do for them or their life, this may be a prompt for candid self examination.
Self examination can be a difficult process for it requires honesty and the ability to look truthfully at situations. We angelics are here for you, now and always, and love you as you are and are always surrounding you with love. Even if you walked away from all you know, we will always be with you. You are never alone and we want you to know that. Just as you are reading this, we are surrounding you with love and joy. Life is filled with difficult decisions for humans, but we want you to know that you should never stay in any relationship because you are afraid of being alone. We are with you always, your personal posse that will never leave you, so be honest and truthful in your self examination so you can grow best from it.
We are with you always, beloved ones, and that is something you can count on. Listen for us, feel for us, for we are always reaching out to you with Love, especially when you are in a peaceful place and can hear us better.
Remember, Love is all there IS, and You Are Loved, You Are Love, and You Love. Say it to yourself when you are feeling scared and lonely and you will realize the Truth in that.
“I Am Loved, I Am Love, I Love.”
Find strength in the knowledge that we love you and are always with you.
Blessings to you this day of our Creator.
