It really feels like I am in the last chapters of my time at my workplace but I would like to leave in a planned way and on a good note. And yet I have increasing demands on me and find it difficult to keep my head above the swirling politics….  How can I do my work and not get emotionally and physically exhausted during this period? I would be grateful for any feedback, thank you!

The guide’s response:

Firstly, you should have music on in this place where you work.  It helps you, it helps balance you as you know.  You need to know that you began to release yourself from this a long time ago.  You also knew that the politics would be difficult. You knew they would want you to be the leader, the voice, the one in the position which you do not want to be in as you have tried very much to not take on more and more, but that is what they want you to do.  And yet your conscious understanding is that there is so much needed and so few to actually have action and to help.  So few see and hear and help those that need to be heard and seen.  Help by helping those that you care the most about to find their own strength. It is more about these beings than any politics or conditions if you want to help and start releasing yourself from it.  You can leave at any one time.  You have set in motion certain conditions that will help you for a while. You will always want to help other beings though.  It is about those that think they know more than others and those that want to have power over others is what you cannot tolerate any longer.  It is as if it makes your skin crawl.

Firstly, have music around you and it would be helpful for others to hear it as well.  Open your heart to those that need to be seen and heard.  Tell them your truth.  Tell them your truth for this is how you teach.  It doesn’t mean you must stand in front of a board and show them letters it means this is what I believe, this is what I feel, this is what I seek.  I know the shy part of you doesn’t want to do this, but it knows it can.  You seek another position and there are many there that would want you.  The choice is yours.  But to get out of this choking atmosphere where more care is about the politics than the beings that they help is very important for you.  Such a sweet beginning can often turn this way.  But you have the choice of not being part of it.  Bless you for being.
