And the unfortunate thing is that, for some reason, we’ve started to see the simple act of asking for help as some kind of weakness. As if the only successful people, the only ones who ever really accomplish anything, are the ones who do it on their own.
There are also those of us who just have it ingrained in us to never ask for help. Maybe we’ve been burned one too many times – by a relationship, by a family member or by someone we were in business with. Whatever the reason, we don’t want help. We don’t need help. We won’t ask for help.
But turn it around.
Have you ever been fortunate enough to be able to help someone who needed it? Just to be able to take the time and be there. Offer a hug. A word of encouragement. A gesture that might even seem simple to you.
We’re so busy these days that we don’t always make the time for this. Or maybe we don’t think we have the time. But even the slightest of overtures can make a world of difference.
And you have to remember that it’s also about perspective – because what might seem like an almost insignificant effort on your part could mean so very much to someone else.
It helps us to remember that we aren’t alone, that we’re all really connected. Like a Psychic Tapestry.
I try to help others with this website and with the Blog Talk Radio show. I feel the over-riding message - that we all go on, that everyone we’ve ever known and loved is just a thought away – I feel that brings hope and healing to some who need it.
Not everyone, of course. After all, not everyone believes. But I’ve heard from some who have been grateful for what seems to me to be among the simpler things I could do – from having on a particular guest who talks about a certain topic, to taking a call and giving a reading, to just pulling a tarot card.
And I’m grateful for the opportunity to be a part of that.
I don’t think of myself as any kind of expert. At anything, really. But I like doing this, and feel so blessed to hear that it matters at all to anyone.
That simple act of helping, of being willing to help, is the highlight of my week. Every week.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. No one will think less of you. And it will give someone else that wonderful opportunity to lend a hand and make a difference.
In fact, I’m going to get the ball rolling right now by asking for your help.
Running this site and this show take time, which I’m happy to give, but they also take money, which I’m also happy to give when I have it.
But I could use some help.
I’m so grateful for the support I already receive, with LIKES on Facebook, FOLLOWS on Twitter, and even SUBSCRIBERS to the YouTube channel. Not to mention the growing numbers of listeners we have to the show!
And for those who like all that Psychic Tapestry does, and are in a position where they can. I’d also be grateful if you could help with your treasure, too!
Money is so subjective. A little to you could mean a lot to me. And a little to me could mean a lot to someone else.
So I don’t want to assign any particular value to this. But here is a link where you can pitch in whatever you’d like, if you’re able and if you want to.
Don’t misunderstand me.
I’m not holding Psychic Tapestry hostage. I don’t have some particular goal amount in mind. But I could use some assistance.
And I’m hoping you can help!
Ken Kessler has always been interested in psychic phenomena, and like Mulder on the X-Files, wants to believe. But like most, he tends to look for, and accept, rational explanations. (More)
