Sometimes we are put in unpredictable situations that not only do we not expect to come up but we are called to act …in the name of service. Just recently I was sent and led to a local store. It turned out to be interesting too, because just like my Angel was driving the car I turned around to go back to a street I had just passed, and I didn’t know why at the time. I just knew to go back. I went down the street not knowing exactly where I was going. I saw the store and thought is this where my guides wanted me to go, I knew the store didn’t have what I needed yet figured there had to be something else they wanted me to find. I seriously thought this as I drove up. As I was looking for a parking spot, I ran into a young lady. She was 15, barefoot, had a very torn shirt, and some facial cuts on her. Her face was bloody and she looked scared. I pulled up and asked her if she was okay. She told me a group of girls had beat her up, she asked me for a quarter. Right then, I asked her if I could at least take her to the bus stop. She didn’t want to get into my car because she was in a very panicking fear like state. I understood, I gave her some money for the bus and felt sad that anyone would do that to another human being.I went into the store and looked for the item I was looking for and just as I thought, they didn’t have it. I kept thinking about that poor girl and what those girls did to her and for no reason other than to be bullies. So awful.
In the last 5 years I have seen this happen in the professional world as well, its really sad that women can not be more supportive of each other. I use to work in Education years ago and this “keep you down” mentality didn’t really exist; everyone was happy that you were bettering yourself, seeking a higher position or moving forward in your life. And if one landed a better position everyone knew the person had earned it, that they had the best experience and that they had the most education or were the best for the job. At that point I was working for a female Dean, she had a PHD, and she was my inspiration in my 20’s. She gave us direction, then let us do our job. It was truly liberating as a women in Business/Education. Doesn’t everyone want a boss that will say, “YOU can do it and go for it”. Life is sure a teacher.
In this economy Ive never seen so much FEAR in my life. I recently attended an inspirational speakers event, I was helping the organization for the day. And the speaker used fear to get people to buy her next event, making them feel as if they didn’t purchase her product they would be failing in life. How she set it up was in disguise of motivation yet there was a lot of fear tactics in her presentation. Since I am educated in various things and highly in tune, i knew this was occurring; it made me upset that this organization allowed her to come to motivate the group and she was scaring the group to purchasing her coaching. Its sad to see this with seminars. I know that is why my gut was just sick and why I left the room. I felt her intention as I sat there and it was hard to swallow. It upset me because this was an underserved community and I found it despicable that someone felt that they needed to use guilt tactics for sales with a nonprofit group and their audience. I guess thats partly why I was told to go there as I wasn’t really planning on going that day. We all can play a part in the energy of a room.
I feel its everyones job to step up every now and then for someone else, especially when you see injustice. Thats what make you an “earth Angel” and/or a more in tune human being to our greater existence. What if you were the one that could make the difference? Would you keep your mouth shut or would you say something? Ponder that. And you never know, one day some one may return the favor.
There was another time about 4 years ago where these men were harassing and man handling this young lady in the parking lot of where I lived; I stopped, honked my horn and called the cops. I didn’t care if I was a woman alone in my car, i couldn’t just let them rape her in front of me. This actually did make them check their behavior, enough for them to stop, look over and let her go. Who knows what they would of done to her had I not took the time to do something very basic. We are all defenders and protecters of humanity.
