Sympathy, Empathy and Compassion, Part 2 | Mastering Alchemy

Excerpt from the Kindle book: What Do You Mean the Third Dimension is Going Away?  ... Compassion, on the other hand, is an upper fourth-dimensional expression. It operates in the present time moment and allows you to neutrally, objectively observe the situation that is before you. It is nonjudgmental. It’s allowing and accepting of things exactly as they are. The act of being in your Higher Mind and surrounded by your Octahedron offers you the ability to be compassionate. Facing your friend who is in pain while you are in this compassionate space, gives you the room to see and offer the wise, helpful information they can benefit from if they choose to.

Conversely, when you are in the third-dimensional reactions of sympathy and empathy it is impossible for you to guide and mentor your friend. Compassion allows you to observe without becoming entangled in the drama, emotional reactions, and physical pain of others. This place of power then enables you to be of greater service. You can assist others to release their unbeneficial patterns, beliefs and habits in greater ways—if they wish to do so.

Reaction versus response
For many, the coming months and years of the Shift will be very confusing and emotional. Those who rely on reactionary patterns of sympathy and empathy to understand or help others will experience a charged, emotional and physical, electromagnetic pull into those people’s feelings, thoughts, and pain. Let us say that again: As the momentum of the Shift continues to increase, if you choose to rely on empathy and sympathy you will find these charged electromagnetic patterns pulling you into the erratic, unfocused, painful feelings, thoughts, and drama of those standing before you.

Most of us can clearly remember where we were and what we were doing when we heard about the events of 9/11. As the event unfolded, two ripples of energy moved around the world:

  • A third-dimensional reaction steeped in fear
  • A fourth-dimensional response that stepped up and asked, “What can I do? How can I help?”

The people in the New York City area first experienced the third-dimensional reaction of fear, followed by the second response, which moved many into a fourth-dimensional vibration of compassion, which involved no thinking and no conditions. Some friends of ours hung their landline phone out the window so others might call home and offered their bathroom to the firefighters. All that mattered was that well-being is brought back into balance. Communities joined together to serve and assist. Others around the world were also affected by these events. Many who were not even directly involved felt empathy and sympathy and chose to feel physical and emotional discomfort, which also included fear, tears, and worry. Many others chose compassion, and in their own way stepped up to help. How did you respond at the time?

Both reacting and responding are very available choices during this time of Shift. You have this choice every moment. Remembering and using your tools to stay focused, observant, clear, and purposeful will allow you to hold a vibrational tone that keeps you well above the reactions of the lower three chakras and out of the third-dimensional fear.

I just ran across this blog and am so grateful as I was only 10 minutes earlier going over a situation with my friend, who I am assisting, with the placement of her relative into an assisted living place.  I have been with my friend helping put together all the pieces she needs to get in place, and I noticed that I am a little drained.  I have gone through this myself in the past (whether it was being a caregiver 24/7 or whether it was putting my own mother into an assisted living place).  After reading Part 2, I realized I was not in the higher dimension of compassion ... well, I have been in that place, but I was drifting back and forth between the higher and lower places.  I was wondering how I can help my friend feel better as I am noticing all the resentment she has and I am noticing it stems way back to her early childhood.  So just reading this Part 2 is helping place myself in compassion rather than sympathy & empathy AT ALL TIMES.  (I will do my best to notice in the coming days.)  Looking forward to using the tools!  Perfect timing ...  Jenny
