Welcome, welcome dear human, we are so pleased to be able to speak with you again. We know we have been ‘absent’ for two weeks, because our channel had to take a little break from all the obligations. Which is fine. And thus we will talk about obligations today.
What do you feel obliged to do? Are you doing things that are taking a toll on you? Do you feel that you could use a break from the things you are doing? Are you in need of some well spent ‘me time’?
We see many people going on vacation right now. The summer period is excellent for doing that. Especially when the weather isn’t too nice where you live, it can be a wonderful experience to go somewhere where you can enjoy sunshine, and warmth.
For others a vacation is just not having to do anything in particular. To stay home, sleep in when you feel like it, or stay up late without having to get up early to do things for an employer.
Obligations can give your life routine, they can give meaning for many of you, but they can also begin to drain you when you are losing the pleasure in whatever it is you’re obligated to do.
So, how can you fulfill your obligations, do the things you are asked to, or you need to because you get paid to do whatever it is you need to do?
How do your obligations make you feel?
Well, the first thing we suggest is to do things with a sense of pleasure. You have a choice in how you feel about things.
The simplest way to change your feelings about anything, is to tell a different story. If you have an obligation to go to work, every day, week in, week out, you may feel drained by it, not seeing the fun in it, not finding pleasure in it.
It can be that your job is too boring, or too demanding. It may not be so fulfilling as you hoped it would be, or as it was when you just started out.
But when you’re in a job, you can always decide to find a different job. And if you can’t, for whatever reason, you can change the stories you tell yourself about your job.
Stories make the difference
Change your perspective, tell a different story of how you feel, about the things you are doing.
Humans are usually in their heads, in their minds, having conversations with themselves, often without even noticing. So, we encourage you to start looking at what you’re telling yourself.
When you are at work, or doing whatever it is you have an obligation to do, begin to see what thoughts you have, and what feelings come from those thoughts.
Do you resent that one colleague, or that one superior who you feel is bugging you a lot? Change the story. Start saying different things to yourself.
Instead of “oh no, not again… he/she is so annoying, I can’t stand him/her!” you can change the way you feel by changing your thoughts.
Look at this person in a different way, see them as their souls, see them as an actor in your movie.
When you know they too are coming from love, they too are playing the part they chose to play in their lifetime, you will look at them from a different angle.
And that way you can change how you feel about them.
Besides, it is never your place to judge anyone. You are not filling their shoes, you have no idea what is going on in their life. So stopping judging alone, can work wonders in how you perceive other people.
By just letting them be who they are, without labeling their actions as good or bad.
Whatever the obligations are that you have, look at them as a way to expand your consciousness, as a way to expand your experience in this physical reality. You are loved beyond measure, you are a wonderful spiritual being in a physical experience.
And when you feel you need some time off from any obligation, feel free to choose yourself above anyone else. You are a sovereign being, and you have free will, free choice, no matter how obligated you may feel, or how much pressure you think other people are putting on you.
They cannot have power over you, unless you give them the power. You have the power to live your life the way you choose. Remember that. No obligation is bigger than you!
We love you, we love you, we love you, and we look forward to our next conversation.
We are the Collective Consciousness of All that Is, and with that we are complete.
