Empathy and Psychic Ethics
That is an interesting expression - soul call. I had not thought about it in that way. It is a difficult question to answer and we have had a number of discussions along these lines, on this site. Personally, I have found that when I have offered advice or information without being asked, the person hears the info but it doesn't register because they are not ready to listen. The same can be said for people who want to tell you all about their situation but they just want you to agree with them and are not ready to hear what they need to hear.
We tend to be in receptive mode but most people are in transmitting mode; they are too busy sending out their energy to focus on receiving. It's like when people ask, why no one will give them an answer to their question - when the Universe has been sending signals, right and left.
Generally, I don't offer information unless asked. For example, the person in the store or the co-worker may strike up a conversation with me. In the course of the conversation, there may be a moment when the topic turns to the information I'm picking up and then I can just say a few words that plants a seed. Even if they don't get it, the information is there for them at a later date.
I work from the belief that if I'm meant to offer some information, that Spirit will create the situation. There is also divine timing, sometimes the person has to go through certain situations before they are ready for the information. For example, I had a friend whose client complained that they hadn't been warned about a situation that occurred. As the reader pointed out, if they were meant to know about it, the information would have come up during the reading but they had to go through that situation because there was a lesson involved.
I don't feel guilty about it because it's not my job to help everyone. My job is to be present and receptive for those people who Spirit puts in front of me. I suppose I would say that if you hear a soul call, to see if the Universe creates an opportunity for you to speak with them. If not, remember that energy moves faster than words. We actually communicate more on an energy level then the spoken one. That soul call is coming on an energy level - perhaps that's how it is to be answered. Sending love may be all that person needs at the moment.
And thanks for the topic and the expression "soul call" - I like that one.
