“You find solace in many of your distractions that you have. There are many things that you do simply to escape from what is. We observe you doing this quite a bit, in fact. Solace is a wonderful thing. We love that you are finding your way to a sense of balance in your lives, and we are not here to take all of your distractions away from you.
We just want you to be aware of when you are doing it. We want you to do it with intention so that you realize that you are using a distraction, rather than believing that the distraction is really what you want to experience, because it is not. It is just serving a purpose for you.
What you really want is to be fully present with your life, with what is flowing and what is not flowing energetically, and with your surroundings and those people that are a part of your life. And if for some reason you feel that you are not able to in the moment face that which is showing up in your life, then by all means choose your distraction.
Choose it carefully. Choose it while knowing that you still have everything else in your life waiting for you and that the escape is not a way of dealing with that which is challenging you, that which is causing you to look at yourselves, and that which is eliciting emotional responses within you.
Numbing yourself is a different story entirely. Numbing yourself is a type of escape that we do not endorse. But distracting yourself is harmless, as long as you do so knowing that the distraction is a means to an end. The distraction can help you bring yourself to a higher frequency state so that when you do decide to face up to the challenges in your life and the other people who are showing up, you will do so with more of your wits about you, with more of your energy.
So use your distractions and refrain from numbing yourselves with substances, and you will be just fine. You will be able to take a new perspective, a new look at those challenges, those emotions, and those individuals which are not going to go away just because you choose to check out for a little bit. But you will be so much better off if you allow yourselves a few distractions every once in a while.
We are The Hathors. We thank you. And we wish you a fond good day.”
