Now let me tell you, I’ve had more than my fair share of strength building, character testing experiences in my life, particularly of late.
I used to tell myself, how could God do this to me! How could my friend do this to me!! Why does this ALWAYS happen to me when things were just about to get good!
I’d be lying if I said I’d never said anything like this, but hind sight and reflection are beautiful things! Our lives are meant to be lived and that’s why we have our “challenges”.
I say “challenges” but I’d question this “concept” of what is a challenge. Several ideas come to mind though:
- If you believe in reincarnation and that we choose to come back to a particular life at a particular time, then I’m afraid you have set yourself up for the life you requested. It is a chronicle of our journey of awakening of our consciousness. To be able to utilise previously learned talents, skills and higher knowledge. We have a closer connection to God and are rewarded with higher sense of ourselves. I believe this is true for me; no doubt!
- Self-limiting beliefs – believing that you are not worthy of “good” things in your life. This might be you if you find yourself getting to a certain point with progress with a goal and then all of a sudden it turns to shit – this my friend is what we call self-sabotaging. I too am guilty of this, however I am more consciously aware of this than I ever have been.
- You are what you speak – simply put, if you’re are going to say to yourself I can’t do this, you won’t. There are several factors influencing this – our minds are so powerful, our thoughts impact our choices, our actions, ultimately affecting decisions made. We are interconnected beings of energy and we attract our like.we create an energy beacon, unconsciously attracting and leading the way for “bad stuff”, like a ship is to a lighthouse.
Ultimately we all have choices in our life – free will. No one has the power to interfere with our free will, unless we want them to. Ultimately there are always going to be “good” or “bad” situations, however how you interact with that, how you respond, that’s definitely on you. There doesn’t have to be good and bad, right or wrong, yes or no. We can simply choose to ask ourselves, what can I learn from this situation? Thank the situation for happening – I know what you’re thinking right now – “oh she must be crazy!” You might think, how can I possibly say thankyou, say if my grandmother died. Now don’t get me wrong, that situation I just mentioned is a time for grief, remembering the great experiences you shared with each other. All I’m saying is, by constantly allowing that grief, sadness or anger to overcome you, it lowers your energy and of those around you, particularly the one that has passed on.
Have you heard the saying, “If you love someone you need to set them free”. This demonstrates that they will return to you, to help you, but you must let them go. And you can do this by celebrating their life and helping yourself to grieve.
Something that has just recently touched my heart was the realisation about having expectations and how this impacts on our “challenges”. Now I’ve realised that there has been an unconscious expectation that as a woman, I am entitled to particular choices. However this is not necessarily the case. But being faced with this perceived imbalance, initially led me to feel sad, angry and reverting to the why me? After some meditation and self reiki, I realised there are lessons for me to learn. I’ve not heard all messages yet but so far I’m back on track to my higher path.
If you’re reading this, I want you to read between the lines! I want you to take away that we have the key to unlock the door; to locate the resources we need to achieve our higher purpose.
As always, with keen interest I look forward to hearing from others.
Sending healing love and light…..Ms.C ❤️
