Recently I made a new friend. She feels like a lost soul, looking, searching, tied up by her own chains, being drained of energy by those around her, unable to make decisions for herself and in her best interest, afraid of hurting others and yet hurting herself so much more in the process, unable to take about things as there are so many emotions paralysing her. I gave her some Reiki although we were interrupted by children several times so unable to relax which is part of the problem.
We all have times when we cannot see the wood from the trees, when fear paralyses us, when we cannot find a solution because it involves letting go of toxic attachments and going against the status quo. It takes a lot of bravery and effort to redifine ourselves and break the chains that bind us but it is so worth it in the end. Still this is her process and I can only accompany her if she will allow it. We all make our choices including whether we allow other people to help us. Much compassion and love to all of us who feel like that on occasions.
