Hoping we never find ourselves in circumstances requiring the assistance of support services, knowing they exist in case of emergency provides a certain peace of mind.
Looking at the matter from a perhaps less dramatic position, in case of emergency along our chosen path towards goals who do we turn to first? Partners, trusted friends, coaches, mentors, and the like may all be there for us in case of emergency.
Each person making up our circle of help undoubtedly contributes something unique to the moment and, although in a perfect world we wouldn’t find ourselves in need, it is reassuring to have these folk around us in case of emergency.
A source of help we might often overlook in case of emergency is our inner wisdom. Spending a few moments connecting with our intuition, listening to our heart and embracing the experience we have acquired to date could turn out to be beneficial for us.
That so many people choose to live as if unaware of these human capacities suggests they are indeed not familiar with them. Given the limited space inner reflection receives in our fast-paced ‘modern’ world this lack of knowledge is possibly not so surprising.
