You’re a Beacon – Not a Rescue Boat

Dear Ones,

World peace and contentment are your end-goals, for that is new earth. But such is not happening tomorrow or the next day. It is a process you are fully enmeshed in and with.

Those of you impatient with this process must understand that you are only responsible for you. Even though you have heard or read this phrase over and over, it is time to understand what it means throughout your being.

If your spouse or neighbor chooses not to follow their heart, they will remain in pain. So it is that many parts of your world continue to vie for the greatest place of fear. Such is to be expected if you accept that this transition is a unique global process. No amount of prayer or good wishes will deliver someone to the light.

Perhaps that makes you angry for you are comfortable controlling others – from your children to economics. And with that control, you have the right, in fact the need, to tell others what to feel and believe.

You cannot save the world – or more to the point for this conversation – shift the world to light.

You are only responsible for yourself. Anyone else – including your children, loved ones, community members or country – are outside your bounds of responsibility and control. You negated that control when you exited your cocoon.

You fully understand you are not to control others. But surely that does not mean others are to be allowed to die or suffer if you know what is right or wrong? You do not.

You only know what is right or wrong for you. Information relayed to you via your inner-being for those newly awakening – and you inner-being and various segments once you have reached that level of self-knowledge.

You do not need to waste time and energy feeling you are not good enough or worldly enough to create world peace and love.

The only light you need to foster is your own – as is true of all entities throughout the globe when it is right for them to do so.

Now you question why you need to be so callous as to not defend those in need? For your life is good and getting better. Why should you not share that abundance with others? Ah, such is the difference between old and new earth.

In old earth, you were wiser, better, braver, wealthier than others, so it was your responsibility to even that score via sacrifice in terms of money, physical life or emotional concern. You played savior for those less fortunate than you. Which was well and good when control and capability levels were touted daily.

A new form of sacrifice, if you will, is now required. You are to allow others to discover their power so they know with every fiber of their being that they are as powerful and capable as anyone.

You are the god of you – no one else.  You are not a world savior – you are your personal savior.

Some of you feel the need to initiate global activities. That is well and good if generated from your segments and inner-being. It is not appropriate if you feel sorry for others – if you believe they are not strong enough, smart enough, capable enough or good enough to care for themselves.

Allow others to tell you what they want or need instead of deciding for them. When your child tells you he or she is cold, wet or hungry, you respond. But would it not be silly, even counterproductive, to feed a child who is not at all hungry?

You have trained for eons to care for those labeled less responsible, wise or capable than you. But those labels shifted with Old Age society. Less than a century ago, women in many parts of the world, were not allowed to travel without an escort – now they are encouraged to become active military combatants.

So it is your understanding of labels is evolving.

Human beings - including yourself - are much more capable than you have been led to believe.

You, as a group, are shifting the skill set of earth and all those entities who wish to participate. You are creating new earth one beacon at a time. Even though you sometimes feel as if all is futile, your beacons are now bright enough to be noted throughout the Universes.

Dimming your light to help someone by moving into their path or arena does not increase your light, nor theirs. He or she will have less need to find their inner-power if someone is rescuing them. And you move yourself off track.

You have heard such thoughts numerous times. The piece you have not yet fully grasped is that new earth is not limited to those of light. All of earth are now of new earth.

Some revert to old patterns for reasons you cannot and do not fully understand. Perhaps they are helping another to turn on their light in response to their fear or chaos. You do not know what anyone is thinking, feeling – or what actions are right for them.

You are a new earth beacon shining brightly in the dark that guides others to shore – when and how they wish to do so. You are not a rescue boat – as so many yet believe.

Stop playing god to anyone but yourself.

Other entities, including humans, can accept their power/light when they wish. For you to decide when that should be is of old earth. They will do so when it is right for them. No sooner – no matter how much you want them to. Or no later – no matter how much you feel they do not understand the light.

Allow them to be. You are not a global savior. You are your personal savior. So be it. Amen.


benners 18th November 2014 10:59 am spot on for many of us in the healing community who are guiding people to heal themselves. No more need to take responsibility for healing the entire world, but to focus on healing our own world and know it is all a mirror :) Thank you Brenda and the angels for these wise words. *collective exhale* lol

Skyhawke8 18th November 2014 11:02 am

Amen ... Well said.

Thank you Brenda.

Great point in this one....thank you....

Brenda Hoffman 18th November 2014 11:17 am

Hi Benners,
My favorite part of this channel is that our new 'sacrifice' is to allow others to be. I've never thought about it in those terms. "Collective exhale" for sure!!!

A major perception shift for us from rescue to beacon.

A new earth and new us!!!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Wow! I have a burnout, and last week I visited a therapist for the second time. She told me (using other words) what I'm reading in this message. It can't get any clearer! After reading I realized: The burnout is the start of my new role as a beacon. Amazing that the questions that rised after I left my therapist last week are all answered in this message. It's also nice to read the other comments. Again, we're all in this together! Thank you Brenda, love and blessings for all of us ?

Nitebloom 18th November 2014 3:50 pm

YAY, love and blessings for us all indeed!

Dear Brenda
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I truly prayed last night and this morning for receiving this exact message.
It is what I am going through, and all I can do is say a complete YES to your message. Yes life is getting better and better and Yes we are only responsible for ourselves. I was praying over how I can handle my mother's negativity in a better way, since I've been in the trap of trying to help her see the light in life. Ive told her she has her own power and that she knows all the answers. But all these efforts have drained me for all my life, I'm now 29. I have the need to shift bigger because it's evident that I cannot be the happy energetic person if Im stuck in old behaviors of trying to "help" her. So I release hopefully fully the outdate role of caretaker since I know she needs to find her own way. This may be one of the hardest lessons. However my heart only longs for complete peace and that's the road ahead.
Thank you thank you thank you Brenda for you strong message. It gives me such a feeling of relief. Iam forever grateful to you and your guides.

Emma852013 20th November 2014 5:43 am

To Benners: I loved that! "Collective exhale" indeed! :)

Brenda Hoffman 20th November 2014 3:42 pm

Hi Emma,
Shifting from caretaker/victim to self-love/self-worth has been one of my most difficult shifts too.

I've often felt like a recovering caretaker working in a caretaker bar. Through patience, practice and like you, the desire for inner peace, I'm so much better. I still catch myself once in awhile but nothing like before.

I like to think of it as throwing a stone in the lake. The waves closest to the stone are intense and close together. The further from the stone the less intense or close. We're in the larger, less intense waves.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Brenda, I work as a reablement worker and we help those who have just left hospital or had falls to get back on their feet. We also evaluate any care needed. In my personal life I have learnt to let people just be even those in addictive cycles. However, in a job role such as a reablement worker or Care Worker we do for people sometimes. What is central to our work is the customer maintaining their independence. Are you saying we should leave the sick who can't do certain daily living tasks to just sit in soiled pads and not be helped to make a meal?

I am also a key person in my father's life and speak up for him at meetings if he is being unheard due to his hearing impairment and mental illness. He is unable to write letters to consultants or make appointments. So are you saying he should just be left without support?

Brenda Hoffman 21st November 2014 9:04 am

Dear Expansion,

My channel was about allowing those who can take care of themselves do so.

And allow yourself to follow your heart.Obviously you are doing so with your father and your work.

It's about following your heart instead of doing something because you think you should or because care taking others makes you feel more outer-directed powerful than others. I hope that clarifies.
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,

Expansion 21st November 2014 6:34 pm

Thank you for your clarification Brenda. I think those I am working with and my dad I have soul contracts with to help :) I know I was told many times that my Life Purpose is to help those who are not in a position to help themselves. Much love, I love your articles they so resonate with me. <3

Brenda Hoffman 23rd November 2014 3:18 pm

Hi Expansion,
Sorry for the response delay - I've been out of town playing a bit. You're living your role. How absolutely wonderful. Kudos to you. Thank you for being a beacon for us all!
Blessings, Love and Sparkles,
