I had a conversation with one of my amazing healer-friends the other day. As always, we invite the presence of angels and guides, and they share their wisdom with us. And today, I am sharing that wisdom with you:

Burdens of Responsibility come from old ways or patterns of thinking. There is no joy in this. Children must have joy in their life. It is like a watering can for a plant. Just like the plants need water, children need Joy. It is their water.

for the light to flow and it is in this light that the receiver(s) get what they need. It is just that simple, but it is also that difficult.(Picture a pointer at a blackboard, emphasizing these words: Burdens of Responsibility.) You can burden yourself with things that you think you are supposed to do. It doesn’t work that way. It will always drain you, and there is no joy about it. Your responsibility always comes from a place of nurture. You know boundaries. Boundaries are a part of responsibilities of Light. Boundaries are a responsibility to the Light.

Everyone is designed this way. You will never make everyone happy. You can’t. It’s not going to happen. Your soul, your Light, will always be.

Do you remember when you were told by your parents and some teachers, “Be nice. Get along”? It is an elementary statement in education. While it is always true in statement, the practice was never really taught. The confusion begins at that early age. Be nice to someone who has put you down and scared you? Not true. No one taught you boundaries to keep you safe and to keep your light alive, keep the Joy there. A rare teaching. That is what is happening.

BOUNDARIES. BOUNDARIES. This is the lesson of this generation of people on the planet. It is not about making wars. It is not about holding a grudge. Do what you know to keep yourself safe and to bring the Joy alive.

There you have it, a message from the spirit world to all of us. Blessings, everybody!

  1. One way I work with old patterns of behavior that I want to change: I think of the opposite behavior. So if I’m hanging on, I let go. If I’m criticizing, I accept. If I’m gossiping, I mind my own business.

    I think of boundaries as self-care: what do I need to do to keep myself physically, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually safe? Boundaries are like a draw bridge of my being. There are times when that drawbridge is down and other times when I pull it up to keep my being peaceful.

  2. Thank you for this message Janet. Too often I find myself feeling drained and weighed down by what seems like responsibilities, but there really is no joy in this that is so true. I appreciated finding out through your post that my only responsibility should always come from a place of nurturance. Going to put this into practice. Blessings!!

  6. Thanks for sharing this Janet. For me responsibility can be heavy sometimes and Joy is always light. Being an oldest child I am very responsible, it’s in my DNA. It’s about the balance and of being a responsible person while also allowing myself to be Joyful.

  8. Goodness Gracious! I am receiving signs everywhere that I need more joy in my life! I have had people tell me to stop working so hard on my business and just play. I read it in a book recently also. Now I am reading it here. That is why I have been feeling so drained lately!

    Thank you for this. I am finally ‘listening’ to the message the Universe has been trying to send me in so many ways. Play equals joy which in turn equals more productivity.

  9. I’m in an odd (for me) situation right now where I’m fully focused on another’s dream. It’s not working very well for either one of us. Thanks for the reminder that feeling responsible (something I’ve always found pride in with my nature) doesn’t work very well when it’s pure burden and no joy.

  10. Janet, I somehow missed this wonderful post. I’m so glad I visited again to read it! The message resonates with me today. For years, I focused on supporting other people, because I thought that was my own, personal dream. But you know what? I was wrong. It took a long illness to get me back to my true creative dreams. I have chosen to believe that focusing on what I truly desire is a benefit to the world, so I can set boundaries and let go of all those “be nice” messages.
