There is magic when we choose to encourage!

Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!

“Sweet Girl” by Stacey Foster


I believe that to encourage means to offer hope to someone, to tease them into being more of who they be and to help them step out of their perceived limitations so that they can begin to see, the infinite possibilities that are available to them.

Isn’t that what the best doctors, nurses, healers, coaches, teachers, parents and friend’s do?

When we choose to join them in anyone in their stories of despair, of not enough, can’t, won’t happen and shouldn’t, then we do them a huge disservice and ourselves.

We have an opportunity to raise them up and to raise ourselves up in the process. There is magic available for everyone when we choose to encourage another into a different way of being.

We remind ourselves in the telling and we remind them.

Yes, there could be another way. Yes, it looks kind of bad right now and maybe we can figure out something else together. Yes, I know you are worried and afraid-I understand and maybe, you could change this thing that is so worrisome.

You are my friend. I see you underneath all of that. I have witnessed you in your awesomeness and I believe you can do this. You can find a better way for you. It might not be what I would do but if it works for you then I will support you in that.

Meanwhile, I know my friend, my child, my co-worker… that you have more than you could imagine available to you to help you. Do you want to explore some possibilities? Do you want to give it a try? What would it take to change it?

“Oh yes you can be so funny sometimes. You forget that life on planet earth is a playground of possibilities and you forget that there are people who can help you to find those possibilities. What if you asked for them to show up for you?

Show me the people who can help to change this! Show me the possibilities!

Aww…there is the rub for some of you. You think that it has to happen a certain way but if you do, then that is not encouragement for anyone.

It takes a strong and loving person to not be pulled into the limitations that another thinks that they own. Stand your ground for yourself and for them.

There is no one way to go about things. There are an infinite number of possibilities and paths to get somewhere. You and only you can find the truth of it for yourself and from our broader perspective that is the only encouragement that you can offer someone else.

It is what we offer you.You can tell them that they and only they are their own best experts and you could tease them into feeling lighter and more joyful until they find their own truth. It might match yours and it might not. But, good friends, teachers, healers, parents understand that. They understand that they are only there to encourage you into more of you-the magnificent being of light and love that is underneath all of your fears and limitations.

Whatever you offer-make it joyous-make it light-make it without judgment and you will find it is more than enough.
