Are You Here For Rescue?

Updated on September 3, 2009

Painting by Mark Bartlett

Have there always been those in your life close to you, who said to you, "You can't save the world."? Do you find that others are constantly drawn to you who need help in some way? Or perhaps, you have always been drawn to, or have always been involved in, careers and/or volunteer work that is centered around rescuing in some way. If this is the case with you, you are here on a rescue theme.

People who are here for rescue are often found in careers such as medical doctors, surgeons, psychologists, various different healing modalities, psychic work, energy healers, firefighters, domestic violence counselors, homeless helping related careers, writers, animal advocates, and many other different avenues of work that can be seen as rescuing in some way.

The challenge for those who are here for rescue, is to be able to rescue in some way on a grander scale, or they are constantly attracted to, and find themselves in relationships with others who need rescuing some way. In these cases once the rescuing is done, the attraction lessens and, in most cases, finally goes. Many who are here for rescue find they have what others might call "bad luck" with romantic relationships.

If you find this to be true for you, then it's time to use your gifts and talents. Decide in which area you feel you could make the most difference, and point yourself in that direction.

Listen to your heart, and play close attention to what attracts you. We have our desires and interests for a reason, just as we are attracted to certain situations for a reason. These "clues" are there to point us in the direction of work that is satisfying to us, and show us where we may be able to best serve.

Another important thing for those who are here for rescue, is to make sure you constantly make time to replenish yourself. If you don't already meditate, learn to. You need quite time in order to restore yourself from the often chaotic emotions involved when you assist in the rescue of others.

Make sure to take time to do something you enjoy, and take your thoughts away from situations when you need to. Often, those here for rescue, have a constant feeling of "urgency" that drives them. Know that it's okay to slow down and take some time for you.

      Beautifully written - thank you for such an insightful and thought provoking piece. I think I have been on both sides of the fence in regards to this theme; there have been many instances I have rescued others, but of late I have found myself needing to be rescued - thankfully an Angel was listening and answered my call :)

      Thank you Beth for shining light into the dark corners of the world.

      Blessings my friend.
