What is this feeling of inspiration and why do we feel it?
Inspiration is an uplifting feeling which comes from focusing your attention onto someone who is in close alignment with their higher self. We feel the ease of that person's being, because of their alignment, so much so that we cannot find any resistance to them within ourselves. It uplifts us, it makes us feel good, it can inspire us to decide to raise our vibration too and become more aligned with our higher selves to experience that same ease within ourselves.
Compare that feeling to the feeling that you get when you come across someone who is pretending to be somebody they are not. You feel their misalignment, you feel their unease, you feel the resistance to them because of their own resistance to their own selves. It makes us feel bad.
We cannot help but be mirrors to those around us. When we feel alignment in someone else we smile at that person, in our reaction to them we give them even more to feel good about.
How can we inspire others?
By focusing on our own energy. By being ourselves. By being the best version of ourselves that we can be. By living our passions.
All of these things and more show that you are in alignment with your higher self. But that is only half of the story.
To be inspiring you also need to couple that with accepting others as they are. When we accept others as they are we are in essence telling them that they are ok, they will feel good about this. However, if we do not accept others as they are, we might try to help them to raise their vibration, and in doing so we are not accepting them as they are, we are resisting them as they are, and in trying to help them we are in essence telling them that they are not ok. They feel this as the opposite of inspiring, it brings them down, it does not raise them up.
Many healers want to help everybody, and in doing so make the mistake of non-acceptance of others, of resistance to others. When you look at another person and notice that they are of a lower vibration than you and you'd rather they were at a similar vibration to you and you try to help them to do that, you are in resistance and this will only have a negative effect on them and on yourself. It is no better than trying to drag someone down, you have noticed the difference in vibration between you and them and instead of changing your own vibration you are trying to change theirs - which is impossible and is pure resistance.
However, if you focus on holding your own energy, focusing on your own alignment with your higher self, whilst accepting all others where they are, then that very same person will be uplifted and inspired by you. It might give them the nudge to decide to want to raise their vibration, they might even come to you for help in raising their vibration. When giving the help that has been instigated and requested by another person, you can truly help them and inspire them.
It is quite usual to feel the difference of vibration of another person and feel a resistance to that. We, as humans, have improved in this regard, most of us now accept the difference in vibration of colour of skin without resistance, most of us now accept the difference in vibration of gender without resistance, most of us now accept the difference in vibration of sexual preference without resistance,... We can take this further and fine tune ourselves so that we accept more differences in vibration.
We all have unique vibrations. No 2 people have the same vibration. Although it feels nicer to us when we are focused on someone who is a similar vibration to us, if we have resistance, in time we will find out what those vibrational differences are and reject the person for them! However, if we foster acceptance of the differences in vibration, then we do not push others away.
You can only truly inspire and help others when you are more focused on your own self & own journey than on others.
