“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
As you observe another in crisis, feeling intense emotions, or just having a very hard time in his or her life, you are being given an opportunity. Oftentimes, you seek to help that person by giving him or her what he or she needs. You often try to make the situation better in some way, so that the person can feel better. And when he or she feels better, you feel better. You may actually see this as an act of service.
We invite you to also consider that allowing a person to be where they are, showing them compassion, and holding space for that person is valuable, and possibly even more valuable. We know that if you could flip a switch and alleviate all suffering in this world, you probably would, and you certainly would for yourself. But giving each other an opportunity to have an experience allows for more growth, for deeper understanding, and it also gives the other person an opportunity to feel empowered.
If you are a parent, and you have a child who is at the age where he or she is learning to tie his or her shoes, you may have a very hard time watching the child struggle. And at times, you may want to reach in and just do it for the child, because that solves the problem of the untied shoes. There is great value, however, in letting the child experience the frustration. And if you can help the child move through the frustration, then you will have given him or her something more valuable than tied shoes.
We are not telling you to look the other way when someone is in pain or suffering. What we are telling you is that sometimes it is necessary for you to be in your pain and your discomfort as you watch another struggle and suffer, because you will be offering an opportunity for learning, for growth and for empowerment. And you will also give yourselves an opportunity to feel compassion, and to trust that the other person is going to be able to work it out.
This is the way for you all to start facing things vibrationally, rather than just looking for quick fixes. And the vibrational solution is always the long-lasting one.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
