Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom and sentiment. -Theresa
Friendship/Amistad: Graciella asks us to reflect on the friendships that we have and also on the ones that we may be building. There are many levels to friendships and each is divine in its own right.
Our charge in maintaining solid bonds with others means having the ability to be available for them while also allowing ourselves the right to limit our time and energy in order to keep ourselves healthy. The ability to be honest and transparent with others is key to maintaining friendships. If we can, we find that we don’t seep our misguided thoughts about our friends to others or find we must flee from these relationships because we find ourselves drained by our interactions.
Friendship is about loyalty and patience and love. It’s also about compassion. Graciella asks us to also reflect on whether we use those concepts with ourselves. Are we compassionate, loyal, patient, and loving to ourselves? If we are, we may find that we have more to share with those we call friend.
In love and friendship,
Graciella and Theresa
