Q&A: Vibrational Job Hazards?
I have a friend who devoted years to working with an organization that provides support services to disabled adults. Last week he had a freak accident that will likely leave him 80% sightless.
It reminded me about how much I struggled with my finances when I was working with the homeless. As time has passed and my involvement in that area has lessened, my money stuff has gotten easier. Coincidence??
I just finished law school and intend to work with underprivileged members of society. Much of what I will be doing requires me to focus on ‘lack’ (lack of support, lack of financial resources, etc.). Many of the people I know who have been doing this work for years are burned out and cynical.
I know I should focus on good things, but I’m worried that delving into this aspect of society may affect my vibration in ways I don’t want. Is there a way for me to do this work without suffering personally?
My former tenants used to work for a non-profit that supported people with substance abuse rehabilitation. After several years of working in the field, their young adult son is in jail for drug related violations, the mother is (accused of being) on drugs, and the father died in the hospital of an alleged drug overdose.
What do you guys think?
Is it possible to immerse yourself in a challenging job vibration day in and day out and yet not be affected by it?
Is there any merit to the phrase “live by the sword, die by the sword”? Would love to hear your thoughts …
