The Experiment: Day 118 ~ Sometimes We Just Need A Hand To Hold…

Oh my sweet friends…

I have spent months really listening to my heart, to spirit, to angels, to God, I have been praying for an answer. What should my work be and how should I do it in the world? I keep coming back to the same thing and then I think, Surely Maitri, that can’t be right. That sounds like it has a lot of ego in it, like you think you’re someone special, but I come back to the same thing… there isn’t any ego in it, and I don’t think I’m any more special than we all are. The thing is we’re all here for a purpose, for a reason, and our job here on earth is to discover what that is, and then find a way to do it. You see that picture above? That’s me. That’s what I’m supposed to do. I’m here to hold your hand. You can feel it in my writing but there is more, it is all unfolding now.

I am working on a book, that is part of it. But this year I am going to expand. I am going to create a youtube channel this year, and a Patreon page. I am going to come to you in videos, eBooks, and more. I am figuring it all out now. There are many things going on in the big world but there are more and more of us whose social connections come primarily over the internet. Many people are older or housebound, perhaps agoraphobic like me, or disabled. Many work in the outside world but need a place to come for comfort and a sense of belonging. I want to hold your hand and I want you all never to feel alone. I want you to know you have a place to come. This is my life’s work and I am committing to it with my whole being. I hope that you will join me and let me be there for you.

And I want to help you get in touch with your soul purpose too, and help you find a way to do it in the world. There are so many ways to do this now, so many amazing tools, so many possibilities. And it needn’t be about creating a business or an income. Some people are here to do amazing charity work. Some simply want to be of service in some way, this is huge. And here’s what you need to know, to remember, to trust in, because it’s where you begin…

There’s a reason we love what we love. We are drawn to what we love because it is the reason we are here. If you can’t quite grasp it, or see how you might do it in the world, never fear. You just need to stay steady in your purpose and desire and do what you can from where you are in the present moment and let it build. What if you loved to knit but didn’t know how you would do that in the world? You might teach knitting, you might make hats for premies or chemotherapy patients in the hospital or make blankets for the homeless. You might have an etsy shop and make things to sell. There are countless possibilities to express ourselves with what we love in the world. There are limitless possibilities available to you, you are only limited by your imagination. What do you love? Tell me. And then tell me 3 things, 3 ways you can use what you love to express yourself in the world. Some of us, perhaps many of us, are just waking up, just finding out who we are in the world, and realizing that we need to awaken our sense of purpose and do something in the world. We need to reach out to others, to help others, to make a difference. And that can look all kinds of ways. And if you can’t even leave the chair you’re in you can sit at the computer and donate your time to a charity you love and believe in and want to support by helping with administrative things online, or you can be of service in very many ways. The more I look at the possibilities that are all around us these days the more excited I get!

We can create women’s circles, groups, gatherings, communities right from where we are. We can “dance” and sing and talk and go very deep with one another live on the computer. We can Skype or talk on the phone, we can be a source of comfort and strength for others. How might you reach out and connect with another, with others, right from where you are? If you are drawn to doing such a thing, do it, let nothing stop you, let us work together and help you find a way. That’s what I want to do in my Patreon community.

Answers are coming for each of us dear friends. If you are open, if you are ready, simply close your eyes and be for a few moments. Trust whatever comes into your mind, whatever you see in your mind’s eye. Trust the thoughts that come to you and the feelings that come into your heart. You are receiving, in the moment that you are reading this, the message you are supposed to receive. I know this to be true.

May you be open, may you be blessed, may you find peace…

If you enjoy this blog a donation would be deeply appreciated to help me continue to bring “Maitri’s Heart” to you. Thank you, and many deep blessings to one and all…


  1. I really like this Maitri. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be doing for sure except just send love and encouragement out. I also like to help people with tapping.

    You already help many people with your blog.

    Love, Jean

    • Thanks so much for your kind words Jean. I think first of all we just have to get very quiet and listen for “the still small voice within.” And then we experience a kind of “knowing” and it grows inside us and one day we wake up and we have an answer. There’s a very soft transcendent movement from where we are to where we’re supposed to be. And one day we know it clearly and then we are ready for action. I think it is all a much more fluid transition than these words can express. It’s something you feel when you close your eyes. It is a moment of sheer joy and love when we experience this knowing. And then we are there, and then our new life begins. And it doesn’t matter how old we are, it’s all about who and where we are in this moment, we become who we are supposed to become in every moment. It’s why we’re here. Anyway this is what I believe to be true…

  2. Oh I hope you think you are someone special – because you ARE, indeed.
    I’m very much looking forward to hearing your voice when you start sharing on youtube!
    What do I love? My day job is being of service to my community, so I love to be on the beach or just at home or in the garden alone (with my dog) not talking, in my recreation time.
    But feeling into the question: I just share simple acts of kindness where ever I can. Feels “good enough” for the moment.
    Sending a beam of love over the ocean to you.
    Yours Silke

    • Oh Silke you are so kind and that is so lovely, and yes, your gentle kindness is felt in every comment you leave, I know you are a real blessing to your community. And I too am sending you love from North Carolina where it snowed last night but only a little and it didn’t last. I bet it’s beautiful in Germany now… 🙂

  3. amen, sister

    i joke that my epitaph will read: born to write, born to hug and by hug i mean love, support, cheer on, be tender, be open hearted — and to write is not just for me, but to inspire others to write, to realize their voice has value, that they are part and parcel of humanity’s literature!

    you and i are “on the same page,” and passing the baton to others, as we go… am i mixing metaphors here? oh well!


    • Oh Ka I just loved this! And yes we are on parallel paths, doing our work in the world and sending out love in many directions. I feel such a kinship with you as I always have for more than 30 years. And now we’ve been texting too! I love that! And I’m so excited that the birds have come back to your feeder. I told you they would. It just takes time. I love to think of you watching your birds while I watch mine. We don’t live in the same place any more but we are deeply connected every day. That makes me so happy. I love you honey… 🙂
