Not Enough....

but sometimes i feel like whatever i do, it is never enough.  there is so much other hurt, so much pain, i wonder what my little gift can do?  i can't help feeling the agony of others.... so often i cannot do anything.  and i wind up in pain because of it.

Perhaps remembering the Serenity Prayer might help...<br />
<br />
God/dess grant me the Serenity<br />
To accept the things I cannot change<br />
Courage to change the things I can<br />
And the wisdom to know the difference !<br />
<br />
It would probably also help to network (in person if possible) with other healers and share experiences. There are more of us out here than you might think !

Here are words to a Garth Brooks song that encourage me along these lines:<br />
<br />
"The Change"<br />
<br />
One hand <br />
Reaches out <br />
And pulls a lost soul from harm <br />
While a thousand more go unspoken for <br />
They say what good have you done <br />
By saving just this one <br />
It's like whispering a prayer <br />
In the fury of a storm <br />
<br />
And I hear them saying you'll never change things <br />
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing <br />
But it's not the world that I am changing <br />
I do this so this world will know <br />
That it will not change me <br />
<br />
This heart <br />
Still believes <br />
The love and mercy still exist <br />
While all the hatreds rage and so many say <br />
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this <br />
It's like trying to stop a fire <br />
With the moisture from a kiss <br />
<br />
And I hear them saying you'll never change things <br />
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing <br />
But it's not the world that I am changing <br />
I do this so this world will know <br />
That it will not change me <br />
<br />
As long as one heart still holds on <br />
Then hope is never really gone <br />
<br />
I hear them saying you'll never change things <br />
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing <br />
But it's not the world that I am changing <br />
I do this so this world we know <br />
Never changes me <br />
<br />
What I do is so <br />
This world will know <br />
That it will not change me

Absolutely beautiful...

Great comments here, and you never know how many people you are actually touching, because when you touch one life, there is a natural tendency for that person to reach out to others. So, it spreads exponentially. You are just not aware of the magnitude of it.<br />
<br />
Remember the old joke - How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.<br />
<br />
And there are lots of people out there biting off chunks of that elephant, so you don't have to eat it all. :)

Blessings, from my own experience I can tell you that there will be many times you feel as though your work is not enough for this world so full of pain and hatred.<br />
During these trials it is important to remember that without the interconnectedness of the universe you would not have your gift.<br />
We are all healers, existing for the sole purpose of loving and caring for one another.<br />
Sometimes, however, connections between each other and that one Source of everything, whatever Its name might be, and new connections must be forged.<br />
That is why your gifts and mine were given to us.<br />
You hurt because you feel the pain of everyone you want to help.<br />
Step back, breathe.<br />
Remember your actions are not small.<br />
Every individual person that you help is as connected to everything else as you, with every healing of one person you help to heal the whole universe.<br />
That's no little thing.<br />
<br />
Just Smile and Breathe,<br />

I understand from your story that you wish to help another people with the same problems that you have. I knew from my own experience that is very difficult help and heal this type of health problems. I ask self this question, did I want to be healed and I will depend on the doctors, which didn’t have any real medicine for migraine. Or in another hand I will look for any sources that have way to help me. If you want to be healing you must find someone, which has the healing power and abilities to help you.<br />

thanks. i needed to hear that. god bless.

You have been given a gift - and you should use it whenever you can... you cannot heal the whole world and you have to realize that and accept it. If you help just one person here and here, you have no idea how much that helps. If everyone that had your gift, and I know a couple of people who do, help just one person, the world would be a lot less painful....for all of us!<br />

Just go with the flow and don't feel guilty because you cannot help everyone!! You are blessed - and only do what you can without draining yourself!
