How much are you Compelled to Help others?

It's not my nature to butt into other people's business- sheesh, I am anti-confrontational by nature even in my own business LOL

But sometimes there are some people who just strike me as screaming out for help- I dunno maybe I feel it, or they touch me on some subconscious level...and it is very hard to just ignore.

In any case, unless I meet them in a professional setting or they are a personal friend, and I am directly or indirectly 'asked', I generally won't butt in...but lately I feel the urge to help completely random strangers...

and I have that fear- argh what if they don't want to be helped- do I really want to be screamed at and be told to mind my own business?!!

And do I want to be troubling myself by engaging in others problems unnecessarily?

ergh.

I think now there's this extra confusion layer because I have these "feelings" I'm trying to acknowledge as valid and not just ignore these days and some of these "feelings" seem to be angels etc communicating with me...

Ergh, what to do?

The "O wise one" is here...LOL...

Oh gosh, this is tough (even for the wise one). You need to be careful of boundaries with strangers. Look at their non-verbal communication (the eyes). Are strangers looking at you with eyes asking for help. Also is it your ego that wants to help or your heart? The difference being the ego needs to feel needed and important. Are you reaching out to strangers because you need to feed your ego? Or does your heart guide you to them? Your heart will provide peace...maybe not answers, but a space to share love. I suggest you listen to your heart and follow its lead.

Oh I totally hear you on this one. I have a few people in my life who constantly ask me for advice or help and when I give it to them they stare and me blindly and nod absently, then continue on with the behaviour that harms them. I learned that I sometimes just have to be there and listen and let them work it out for themselves. Most people will do what they want to do regardless of what you do or say

Hey...just responding from the comment you left on my blog...

In regards to intuitive "vibes" and angelic numbers...that's cool. I have a neighbor that can touch you and get all this info about you, so cool. It sounds like you have the ability to access info that few can. If I were in your shoes I would ask the universe to guide me on this... I think you have a very interesting journey ahead :)

P.S. I can't wait to see the photos you take with the IS lens!
