Maybe you are disguising it in terms like, “wanting to be of service to others, and to humanity.” Wanting to “be there” for friends and family.
This will not lead you to your freedom, any more than it will help anyone else.
You carry a bright light, and it is growing brighter. But if you insist that you need to compromise yourself for anyone or anything, you are working against your own light. And you know more now than ever before when that is happening. You know by how you feel.
It used to feel good to sacrifice and suffer in the name of service to others. It was seen as a virtue, especially as a woman, to put aside your own needs for the needs of others. You were then considered a good person, a good woman. You nurtured others, maybe even your own family, your mother and father, because you could see they couldn’t do that for themselves.
Others came to you for nurturance, advice and support. Friends, associates, even strangers. And you felt, to a degree, a sense of identity with that role, and a sense of fulfillment.
And it’s not just your grooming as a woman which placed you so deeply in that role, it was being a light worker. You knew you carried something special and you wanted to share that to help those in your life who seemed to be struggling. You held energies for others and for the planet for a very long time.
But you have paid a hefty price for that type of service. Emotionally and physically, you downloaded the pain from others, even from your ancestors before you.
YOUR NEW ROLE
Now, in light of the new consciousness, all that is going. In the new energy things operate differently. Pain, suffering and struggle cannot reside there. Playing the victim will not do. Taking on the pain of others and worrying about the planet is counterproductive.
The new consciousness is based in joy and self love. It is based in cooperation between you and you. Between your human and soul self, between your masculine and feminine nature. Not just as a concept, but putting it into practice on a daily basis. It is a radical shift away from the old patterns. Patterns that had their basis in guilt, shame, and fear.
So releasing the old role makes room for the new one to emerge: Loving yourself, nurturing yourself, accepting yourself, and continuing to invite your soul into your body and your life. That’s it. Anything beyond that is gravy. And the byproduct of that is everyone around you, including the planet, benefits.
Whatever else you do is up to you. If it brings you joy, do it. But don’t do it because you “think” it’s being of service in some capacity. That is just old energy thinking.
Martyrdom, to whatever degree it is practiced, is dead in the new consciousness. Don’t bother looking to the old role models of ascension or enlightenment because, with few exceptions, they are generally laden with martyrdom.
You are moving beautifully past the old, outworn ways of being. Trust in yourself and in this process, and gift yourself with no longer using humanity’s definition of being in service.
