Were those last reflections concerning Laughter, Openness and Vibration helpful? I hope so!
For sure, I can confirm it became increasingly important to maintain a high energy-presence while striving to partner with my father in his waning years. As we needed to keep “moving the needle” regarding growing urgencies for support inside and out of the home (beyond just me), I recognized how vital it was to keep my own “shape” intact.
I knew that if I lost sight of my high vibration, both of us would lose. Instead, I preferred to stay mindful.
Examine further how you view your aging parents.
What does that notion boil down to? It denotes that we already contain within the answers to any question or dilemma. On the premise we’re spirits having a human experience (and not the other way around), everyone possesses similar wisdom.
Yes, that includes your parents – hard as these statements may be to accept some days!
Permit me to share an insight regarding my paternal “contract”.
Even though it is jumping ahead in my “story”…
…I would like to quote what a precious friend wrote in the final throes of my Dad’s passing-away journey: “I think you have chosen to walk with your father as he gets ready to transition partially out of obligation but also because it is the path you have chosen. Sometimes walking with someone is neither easy nor fulfilling for one party. But the lessons we learn about ourselves in retrospect will be worthwhile.”
How accurate, Patrick!
With the benefit of hindsight, I definitely see that my father was somehow connected to his bigger “contract” all along. That larger arrangement entailed obstinately remaining in his home of almost 50 years. On the Earth plane, his choice was completely unreasonable. Still, in some fashion, he could be described as “whole, resourceful and creative”.
Parting food for thought…
Imagine what would be possible if you considered your folks capable in their Essence.
Remember, they needn’t behave in this manner on the surface. Rather, the salient query is, can you believe they’d act differently if you appealed to their inner core?
No matter your answer, they will show up as morons or adults depending on how you treat them. I’m just being blunt!
