The story of Cassandra


What if you tried to help her? … instead of criticizing her …”, asked my Angels.

“Heu … 😳 Good point!”, I thought.

After all I was a Lightworker, right? At least, that’s what I thought until this point.

Why hadn’t I tried to help her already?

Cassandra was a colleague of mine at the research institute of Zurich (Switzerland) where I was working as a paleoclimatologist, many years ago. She was coming from Germany to do her PhD with my boss. And nobody liked her!

Maybe because she came from Germany, she was, or seemed, a bit rough on the edges. She simply had a bad attitude right from the start.

We had tried to make her part of the team: inviting her for lunch (she was too busy working to break for lunch!) or going for drinks after work (she didn’t have the time nor the money for such frivolous things to go for drinks after work). She was complaining to our boss that she was the first one in. Yes, we would arrive later, but also leave way after her, quite late at night. But she didn’t see it that way and wanted us all in the lab at 8am sharp. She was so annoying.

So, she rapidly outed herself from the group. We just didn’t want to hang out with her, unless we really had to.

Through the years, her mood became somber and somber, and she became more and more lonely.

On that particular day, I was sitting at my desk, in my office, my back to the door, when I heard someone coming in. I felt in my body and saw in my mind’s eye a black cloud of dark energy coming in and quickly filling up the room. Next to me, I saw my colleague stiffening up. I didn’t have to turn around to look who that was: I knew it was Cassandra!

She asked my colleague something and left the room. I felt the need to shake my entire, tense body to get rid of the bad energy. I needed to clear up the room from the remains of the black cloud. My colleague complained. She was also feeling the lower energy.

“What a disgusting person she is!”, I thought.

That’s when my Angels said:

What if you tried to help her? … instead of criticizing her …”.

And I hadn’t think about that.

Did she need my help? I didn’t really think so. I hadn’t felt called to help her. Prior to this, I had already called on the Angels and Archangels to help someone from my family or a friend of mine, and for myself, of course. But I didn’t feel I could or should help Cassandra.

Her energy was disturbing me when she was around, but, because I had learnt to avoid people like her, it was not really a problem for me.

You came here to help bring more peace in this World, why don’t you give it a try? with our help! See if you can make things better.

I was confused. I really didn’t feel like helping her. And anyway what was her problem?

By asking that, I suddenly tuned into her energy, and what I received was “anger”. Cassandra was so angry! I could feel the dark, heavy energy around her in my energy space.

What was she so angry about?

It suddenly hit me! I understood now: she was angry about the same thing as I had been angry about! Except that, I, I had dealt with my negative emotions. My anger was, to some extent, a thing from the past, and I had mostly made peace with this part of my life.

The stupid, old, tyrannic PhD director. The old professor who wouldn’t let you graduate, who would not understand your theories, who would not listen to you and who would want to extent your PhD by 2 more years, because “You are not ready, yet”.

I understood perfectly because my PhD director was the same kind of professor. In fact, both our professors were very good friends of each over! They were the same age, with the same old mentality and the same tyrannic ways. Check my story about the tyrannic professor here:

[Not my finest moment, by the way]

Cassandra and I had a lot in common, I now realized.

“OMG!”, I thought, “She has the right to be angry!”.

And because I understood what she was going through, I could not judge her anymore.

Instead, I had compassion. And now I wanted to help.

So at the next coffee break, my Angels and I popped into her office and asked Cassandra if she had a sec.

I asked her how she felt, really felt. I made sure that she saw that I was genuinely concerned about her. I told her that I realized that she was in a crappy situation. I told her that I had been in a similar situation when I was a PhD student and that I understood. We complained about our boss for a while, comparing war stories, if you will.

I told her that she had every right to be angry.

Then I told her, that even tough, I didn’t know how to help her, I was ready to help, if need it be one day.

And then, just like that, because I had acknowledged her anger, the anger was gone. The energy was totally changed.

I know that the Angels were working with her, and with me, to heal the situation but it was so sudden, it took me by surprise.

In the next months, Cassandra got more friends. She was also more friendly overall. She seemed happier. Her energy was definitely lighter. She came to me, once in a while, to have a little chat.

I was the first one she told, when her PhD was finally accepted.

I was the one she came to for advice about a job opportunity in the US.

She sent me a friend request on Facebook. I couldn’t believe we had reached this level of friendship. A few months ago, I wouldn’t have thought it possible.

She got the job in the US and moved to Texas. Her Facebook profile showed her so happy. She liked her new job. Then she started dating someone she was working with. And now they were speaking of getting married.

When I saw the wedding date became official, I got a bit sad.

“What?”, I thought, “I went out of my way to help you, even though I didn’t want to, and you don’t even send me a little message to tell me you’re getting married?” I thought we were kinda  of friends and she did came to my wedding!

I was expecting her to reach out to me personally, I just wanted a little bit of acknowledgment for the help I had given her.

That’s when she invited for a glass of wine. “Really?”, I said, as we were entering the bar, “You want to order red wine? But you’re German, don’t you want to drink beer instead?”.

“No”, she said, “Red wine is fine. I can have beer any time I want. I want to thank you and you don’t like beer, so let’s order wine!”.

We started drinking and chatting. She was telling me how happy she was with her new life. Texas was wonderful (🤷🏻‍♀️), she loved it there. She liked her job, loved her future husband, etc. She told me that she knew how much I had helped her and she was really grateful, even though she hadn’t acknowledge it before, but she was. She hadn’t invited me to the wedding because we were not really friends, and she had moved on with her life and, because, we didn’t even belong to the same Soul group, we would not have any relationship in the future. “Thank you for helping me”, she said – and with that I woke up!

It was but a dream but a “real” dream. We were somewhere in a bar in Heaven drinking wine and we did have this conversation together. I was feeling so much better. Thank God! Later, I unfriended Cassandra on Facebook and moved on.

It was the first time that I got an Angel assignment, so to speak, where they asked me to help someone I was not thinking of helping.

I understood two things from this story:

  • “bad” people, the people who are angry, who are rude to you, have something inside of them that needs to be healed, repaired, or acknowledged. They want someone to come to them and say: “Yes, you’re right, it sucks for you. I understand!”. They need help more than judgment. So the question becomes: what can you do to help?
  • the Angels and Archangels are working through us to bring more harmony and peace on Earth.

Something Doreen Virtue said deeply resonated with me. “Your contribution to world peace is to bring peace to your part of the world.” Happy, peaceful people don’t start wars. They don’t get angry easily, they don’t start fights with their neighbors or colleagues. World peace starts within.

Here is another quote that resonates with me:

“One simple change – seeking and finding peace within – could, if it were undertaken by everyone, end all wars, eliminate conflict and prevent injustice. World peace is a personal thing. What is needed is not a change of circumstance, but a change of consciousness.” – Neale Donald Walsch

I am amazed at how simple actions can help transform the world and when we allow ourselves to work with the Angels, we are shown how to make the world a better place, for ourselves and others.

Sending you Love & Light,

Gretta 💗😊💗
