When we repeat what we perceive to be a “negative” or “painful” pattern, it is mainly because we have not yet fully recognized the gift or lesson that it is trying to offer us. If we have yet to realized the gift in any situation, then let us today stop and ask ourselves: “What/Where is the gift/lesson for me in this pattern?” As an expression of God’s Love, the universe is eternally generous and kind. It will offer us innumerable opportunities to end self-destructive patterns we keep insisting on repeating. It is in this self-realization, where the gift of peace resides. Peace of mind being an expression of Love, is a symbol that you have placed your trust in God. When you fully trust in God’s plan for you, nothing that is happening out there in the world, or to you, can take away your peace. You would have no need to blame others or the outside world for your situation. You would simply acknowledge that because of free will, this is something that you co-created with The Divine to help you grow, heal and awaken. No matter how negative a pattern appears to be, when we place our full trust in God’s plan, we realize that this is happening for our good. Therefore, what separates you from the state of peace while experiencing and repeating negative patterns in your life, is not the experience itself. It is a lack of understanding that everything in your life is serving a higher purpose. Those negative patters have in truth no power. They only have the power that we give or surrender to them. Once we again shift our thinking to trust in the sacred journey that we have co-created with God, we take responsibility for our part in our creation. Trust that God being Love and All uses all for good. Do so and peace will become your companion.
Imagine, supporting an illusion of yourself or others as real. How do you begin to get rid of the ego’s programming, its negative focused thinking patterns? It is mainly by physically experiencing such illusionary programming over and over again, that you sooner or later realize, that its lies are not true. That you are worthy of more than the ego’s lies. That you are worthy of peace in areas of your life where you once did not think of such a possibility as possible. Imagine for example, unconsciously thinking that you are unworthy of a happy and healthy relationship. It is in such instances, where you bring into your life, and others volunteer to bring into physical form, your own thoughts and beliefs. In this case, to develop a relationship where you are not feeling happy or healthy. Such a relationship brings you the opportunities to see what your own thinking and choices are creating, and thus what you are experiencing. Once you tire of what your choices are creating you will remind yourself: “This is not as it should be. I am worthy of a happy and healthy relationship. I will no longer choose what I do not want.” It is then, that you will stop making the choices that you once did. It is then, that such partners will stop volunteering to assist you in recalling what you no longer want. Ultimately, what else but gratitude would you want to offer those partners who helped you recall that you are worthy of a happy and healthy relationship? What else but gratitude would you offer those who have volunteered to come into your life in order to help you learn how to love and respect yourself more? What else but gratitude, would you want to show those that helped you recall how God uses every part of your life for good? It is when you understand this, that the false concept of “negative patterns” begins to fade away from your life.
Today, let us recall and trust that even negative patterns repeat themselves for our own good. The way to let go of a false concept or pattern, whose misperception of it is causing us to remain stuck to it, is by bringing truth or right-minded thinking into the equation. Being that God is Love and All, when we make the conscious decision to trust in God’s plan instead of the ego’s fairy tales, that is when our minds begin to awaken. Yes, because we have supported it for so long, our illusionary thinking may seem hard to let go. We have invested so much time and energy on buying into the false as true. But now, thanks to our life experience we can see the false and true next to each other. This clarifies our path to peace. Who in their right mind would choose to carry the heavy burdens of judgment over the freedom that forgiveness offers? Who would consciously desire to live in a confused and chaotic state of mind instead of trusting in God and being at peace? Who would not prefer to be living in a state of gratitude instead of condemnation? The way we are able to let go of a repeating pattern, is to do so with trust, forgiveness, understanding and gratitude. All participating in your negative patterns are helping you, in their own ways, release you from that pattern. For this, trust, forgiveness, understanding, gratitude and any other of Love’s expressions, are the appropriate responses to them. If we refuse to offer these energies, we will remain stuck repeating such patterns. When stuck, the universe, being an expression of God’s Love, will send help. An endless line of volunteers will arrive to help you heal. They will physically recreated your false beliefs until you realize you no longer want them. They will continue to help until you realize that you are indeed worthy of peace.
Today, when you catch yourself once again repeating a pattern that you do not want, consider trying these five things: First, trust that because God is Love and All, that every moment of your experience is being used with your good in mind. Second, recall that to let go of this negative pattern, that you must do so through Love’s tools such as though forgiveness and compassion, not the ego’s judgment or resentment. Third, forgiveness is an expression of Love. Offer it to yourself and to all others involved in the pattern. Fourth, anytime the ego once again wants you to judge and be resentful, let this instead trigger in you the need to forgive, to free yourself from a pattern you no longer want. Fifth, gratitude is also an expression of Love. Thank all those who volunteered to be part of a process that helped you awaken.
