Care Focus: Shifting Overcare into Balanced Care

GCI March 9, 2020 – Full Moon Synchronized Care Focus

Welcome to the Global Coherence Initiative’s March 9, 2020 Full Moon (17:47 GMT/UTC) synchronized Care Focus. In order for GCI members around the world to participate at a convenient time, we have chosen 4 a.m., 12:00 p.m. (noon), and 7 p.m. Pacific Time (GMT/UTC minus 8 hours) when GCI members in the Global Care Room or Global Coherence App can do the Care Focus together.* Thank you for being with us.

As we move into a new year and new decade, we see the Shift energies continuing to accelerate planetary changes. Just the first month of the new year saw fires burning throughout Australia, major earthquakes in Puerto Rico and Turkey, volcanic eruptions in the Philippines, a virus spreading from China throughout the world and ongoing political polarization in many countries. Humanity could benefit from compassionate care more than ever to help ease these transitioning times. Genuine care and compassion are two of the most life-fulfilling coherent heart qualities we can cultivate. However, given today’s emotional climate, it’s so easy for our care to turn into worry, anxiety, energy drain, and burn out – what we call the overcare syndrome. We can prevent much of this with a little practice once we know how.

Excessive worry is easy to justify because it fools us into thinking that amped up worrying is when we are caring the most. However, research has shown that constant worrying not only drains energy but blocks us from seeing creative choices and solutions. The disruptive changes that Earth and humanity are experiencing, especially call for clearer reasoning and wiser choices. Most of us know this, but knowledge only collects dust without an action plan. Taking charge of our personal energy is something no one else can do for us.

So how is it possible to care deeply without depleting our energy or harming our health? Research has shown that the practice of shifting overcare into balanced care lifts our vibration and renews our energy. Practicing balanced care is especially helpful for increasing our coherence to prevent energy drain and burnout when things we care about don’t go the way we want – regarding political or personal issues.

The following Care Focus and exercise unfolds clearer views regarding our discernment, choices and actions, as well as more flow in our interactions. Many people have reported how effective this practice has been for them.

Let’s start by connecting in the heart with everyone participating in the Global Care Room or Global Coherence App and radiating love and appreciation to each other.

Care Focus – Shifting Overcare into Balanced Care

1. While breathing in a relaxed pace, pretend you are breathing through your heart or chest area and imagine calming your mind and emotions with your breath. (Calm emotions help to create a space that enables intuitive access for clearer discernment and choices when evaluating situations.)

2. Once you’ve calmed your mental and emotional vibrations, identify issues that trigger unbalanced care (worry), then ask your heart feelings, “What would an attitude of balanced care look like in this situation?” After you decide a replacement attitude, imagine breathing in that new feeling for a few minutes to anchor it into your system.

For example: If you are frustrated or impatient, then breathe in the feelings of patience until you feel the energy change. Or if feeling worried or overloaded, sit quietly and breathe compassion and the feeling of ease into your system.

Breathing compassion and ease helps to neutralize overcare, anxiety, worry, impatience, anger, mind looping, moving too fast, etc. Know that with practice, you can replace unwanted feelings that override your heart’s intuitive choices and clear directions.

Increasing our compassion is one of the most effective steps forward for social and spiritual advancement. As we radiate compassion and ease to stressful situations on the planet, this adds a softener frequency to the Earth’s energetic fields. Visualize this softener energy bringing comfort and ease to people, helping them to better discern their highest choices in dealing with challenges.

3. Now let’s close by radiating compassion and ease to all people around the world who are in stress from Earth changes, viral epidemics, homelessness, terrorism, political polarization, and more. See our collective compassion helping them find more ease in dealing with their situations and making creative choices for a better future.

Observe yourself for a few days and see how often you can catch your mind looping in overcare and downer projections regarding yourself, others or issues. When you find yourself in worry or anxiety from overcare, do this Care Focus practice to shift into balanced care. Approach it from the heart with ease, not force, for better results.

The skill of shifting our feelings from overcare to balanced care doesn’t diminish our true heart’s care, it strengthens it, without debilitating our system. Preventing and reducing stress is growing to the top of our must-do list if we are looking for peace, happiness and fulfillment.

You can continue to do the Care Focus in the Global Care Room, if convenient, after the full moon period, as this will help raise the vibratory rate of the personal and collective field environment.

Thank you for your participation in this Care Focus.
